A Mother’s Financial Problem Miraculously Solved & Her Wish for Her Daughter Came True Because of the Vajrapani Ruel – A Personal Testimony of A Reader!

Published Agosto 4, 2016 by jptan2012

Sometimes a special thing come into our life, and although I have come to fully expect miracles from this special holy object, I must admit that I’m still fully amazed and sometimes overwhelmed with the wonderful miraculous stories shared with me by my readers and friends who have requested for the Vajrapani Ruel.

Today, I would like to share with you the story of a showbiz mother. She requested that her name be hidden because she herself used to be an actress and it will be easy for people in the Philippines to identify who she is. So for the sake of this blog article let’s just call her SM.

SM is a mother of several daughters and a son. Three of her daughters are in the entertainment industry right now. SM herself is only semi – retired and still comes out in a telenovela.

SM first contacted me when an actor who have been featured on this blog told her about me. When she contacted me she said that her husband who is way older than him has been sick, and since he was the only breadwinner at that time, money has been quite hard for them. They have to pay hospital bills and coupled with tuition fees of their eight children things really got difficult.

Vajrapani Ruel

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

It is because of the said financial problem that SM reluctantly agreed that three of her eldest daughters go into acting also. However, show business is not as easy as it looks. It will always take years of hard work and introducing yourself to people that matters before one is given a break in the industry. And so even with three daughters in the entertainment industry money is still quite difficult. SM herself went back to acting but contrary to what people think, pay is not that much. So she decided she will put up a small canteen business, but to do this she needs money to set it up.

When her fellow actor told her about me and the Vajrapani Ruel, she decided to call me and request for the Vajrapani Ruel. Her priority at that time is to get it for herself so she can raise enough money to start her canteen business, and at the same time so that her eldest problem will have a regular showbiz project.

That was several weeks ago, and earlier I got a message from her telling me the good news. Apparently, when her daughter got a regular project, she thought this might be because of the Vajrapani Ruel, however, since she is really not a believer she thought it might be a coincidence. Nevertheless, when a week after her daughter got the regular project, she also got her own good news. Her rich unmarried aunt gave her a ‘small’ condominium unit in one of her investments in Makati. SM plans to sell the said unit so that it will become cash, which she can partly use for her canteen business and also for her husband’s medical bills.

Please see below the message of SM. It’s in Filipino, which I tried to translate verbatim.IMG_0290

JP!!! Good news! You know why I got the Vajrapani Ruel, right? That is because I have big money problem and with my daughter’s career who have been in the showbiz industry for quite some time. Good News!!!! She (SM”s daughter) was cast in a regular show and my aunt who is not married who is really rich in the States, came back home. She is quite old so she decided to put her affairs into order and distributed some of her properties. I was lucky enough to be given a small condominium unit. I plan to sell it so that I’ll have cash. At first my daughter (was casted in a regular project) 2 weeks after getting the Vajrapani Ruel. I had doubts but after last week when my aunt gave me the property title of the said condominium and it was written under my name already, whatever doubts I have that these things were because of the Vajrapani Ruel was erased! Thanks a lot, JP. Please call me so I can tell you the whole story.

Recite A Sutra (6): Why Do We Have Loudly Recite Sutras?

Published Hulyo 4, 2016 by jptan2012

One of the most common question people ask me is as to why do we need to recite sutras loudly? And is silently reciting it will not have any effect?

First, the Buddha or Shakyamuni (also spelled as Sakyamuni) Buddha himself said that merely having a sutra around us would already have some effect. Or simply holding a sutra will already give us some blessing; so silently reciting it will definitely have some merits that may translate to wonderful blessings.

But why do Buddhist monks encourage us to chant it loudly or with voice? The truth is I myself believe in loudly reciting the sutra. And by loudly I don’t mean that we have to recite it at the top of our voice, but we don’t murmur either, it has to be recited with voice and as comfortably loud as possible. The key word here is comfortable. I believe in this because it is what my Guru Lama told me to do, and as my study about Buddhism went deeper I began to see the merit in loudly reciting the sutra, and I also saw that it is what the Buddha himself taught us to do, and it is what the Buddha also did when He still has a physical body.

But again why do we have to do it?

Buddhists believe in unseen entities and hungry ghosts. These unseen beings may be former humans or other spirit beings. They are simply around us, even though we don’t see and feel them. However, they may see or feel us.

We recite the sutra loudly primary because of them. Some of these beings lives in a lower realm, and they might not be able to access sutras. By loudly reciting a sutra they get to ‘hear’ the sutra and learn more about Buddhism. We even bless them simply by loudly reciting a sutra. And by blessing them we also get to gain more merits. And by continue reciting the sutra loudly, we might even help these beings get reborn in a better realm, and if we become that channel we will also gain bigger merits.

Furthermore, by loudly reciting the sutras, we vocally utter the very words of the Buddha, and even if it has been translated to English or any other language, there are still some degrees that those are the very words of the Buddha some 2,500 to 3,000 years ago. And simply doing that Heavenly Beings gets attracted by those words and listen to us, thus they hover over us and they also become instruments in giving us more blessings. They will ‘conspire’ to do what is best for us.

The above two reasons are what the Buddha Himself said in His sutras. So you see, whether we recite it loudly for heavenly beings to ‘bless’ us, or we recite it loudly to help bless those in the lower realms, at the end either of the two we still get blessed!

I know that when reciting the sutras, some people find it quite weird, because it is like reading a storybook. In a way it is because we get to read the real stories of what happened before and what the Buddha directly taught His disciples. But that’s the beauty of it, because we get to ‘witness’ thru reading the Buddha’s ways.

One reason I started this ‘Recite A Sutra’ series is because I believe you, as a reader will get a lot of blessings if we simply recite a sutra. The blessings that we get in reciting a sutra may vary from wealth luck to financial luck or money luck, or from family luck to descendant luck. The protection luck that we get is also enormous, regardless of the sutra that we recite.

But of course it is very important that we treat the sutra, no matter if the printing is bad, as a very holy object that it is.

Invite Wonderful Blessings in Your Life by Reciting a Sutra!

Published Abril 1, 2016 by jptan2012

I am a believer of the power of amulets; needless to say my favorites are the very powerful Vajrapani Ruel(1) and Surangama Mantra Amulet(1). The numerous personal testimonies found on this blog is testament as to how powerful wearing amulets are, especially the Vajrapani Ruel(2) which has showered a lot of people who has requested it with tremendous wealth luck, money luck, and financial luck. Wearing an amulet is like carrying an extension of a Buddha or Bodhisattva’s energies. However, the sad truth is not everyone will be able to avail of a powerful amulet. But of course, there are other ways of tapping into the power or energy of a Buddha or Bodhisattva.

In the past, I have written a lot about the importance and benefits of chanting a mantra, and a lot of you (my readers) has emailed me or texted me or personally shared with me the testimonials of how chanting a mantra has helped in your personal life or even in your career.

Chanting a mantra, for me, is one of the most powerful ways to connect and tap into the energies of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas. Some people might say it is not as effective as having to wear an amulet like the Surangama Mantra Amulet(2) or Vajrapani Ruel(3). Well, there is truth to this, but I believe in some ways, chanting a mantra may be even more effective if we are able to chant it under deep meditation. How deep? To the level that you are no longer conscious of you’re surrounding. If we are to chant in that level of deepness, I would say it is even more effective than wearing an amulet. But whether we are able to chant it deeply or not, it is bound to have some effect, and we will definitely feel its power.

However, today I would also like to add and discuss the importance of reciting a sutra.

Amitabha_Sutra_bookA sutra or sutras are Buddhist teachings, usually ones that has been personally taught by Shakyamuni Buddha when He still have a physical body. Although, there are some sutras that was taught by different patriarchs. One of the most famous one is the 6th Patriarch Hui Neng. His sutra is called THE PLATFORM SUTRA OF THE SIXTH PATRIARCH. On my future posts I will discuss more about the sutra of the patriarchs. But for now let us focus on the sutra of the Buddha Shakyamuni.

I have mentioned before that mantras are powerful words lefts to us by the Buddha himself for us to chant to evoke some power. These mantras are usually found within a sutra. And as mentioned a sutra is a teaching taught by Shakyamuni (also spelled as Sakyamuni) Buddha. In effect, even when it has undergone a translation, it is still considered the very words of the Buddha.

Basically, a sutra is a teaching of the Buddha, and while the Christians and Muslims has the Bible and Koran (respectively), which is a compilation of different ‘books’, in Buddhism the sutras are not compiled. But there are a lot of different sutras.

As I said, a sutra is the Buddha’s teaching, within them are found the different mantras. But more than that, simply reciting (reading it loudly) carries a lot of blessings with it. As to what type of blessings it carries depends on the sutra being read, and these blessings are usually mentioned within the sutra itself. So reading a sutra doesn’t only bring about knowledge about Buddhism, but it also brings about blessings and this is another form to tap into the power or energies of the Buddha or Bodhisattvas.

But there are important things that one should remember when you got hold of a sutra. They are the following:

  1. You should treat it like a holy object only because it is a holy object.
  2. Don’t put it on the floor or a chair.
  3. If you placed it inside a bad, make sure you don’t put the bad on the floor or chair.
  4. Do not bring it inside restrooms, unless if its worn as an amulet.
  5. Do not sit on it.
  6. Do not lie on it.
  7. Do not put things on top of it.
  8. In keeping it, make sure you placed it on a high clean place.
  9. In keeping it, as much as possible put it on a vertical position and not horizontal. If horizontal (again) please make sure you don’t put anything on top of it unless it’s the same sutra.
  10. Take care of it like it’s the most precious book that it is.

In my next posts, I will share with you some of the sutra that I regularly read. Some of them I have written about in the past but it is worth writing about them again.

But for now, remember that while the Vajrapani Ruel(4) or the Surangama Mantra Amulet(3) are powerful amulets, there are other ways of tapping into the energy of the Buddha or a Bodhisattva.
