Using Holy Names, Holy Images, or Holy Objects for Selfish and Malicious Intentions Creates Unparalleled Bad Luck!

Published Pebrero 16, 2016 by jptan2012

It is quite amazing in a very negative way that some people can use the name of Buddha or Bodhisattvas or their images or even objects (such as amulet made under their power like the Vajrapani Ruel, Surangama Mantra Amulet, Kalachakra, etc.) in a malicious selfish manner for their selfish gains. But the truth is this happens.

Allow me to share a simple story that was shared with me by my Guru Lama several years back.

Anyway, according to my Guru Lama this happened when he was still a young monk and ‘works’ under a high lama. In fact, at that time this happened he is not yet a fully ordained monk. Meaning he is somebody who has taken the some initial initiations to become a monk. The story involves a Tibetan refugee and so for that purpose let’s just call him TR.

TR is one of those Tibetan refugees who escaped Tibet because of the Chinese invasion and oppression. At that time this happened, TR is a lot older than my Guru Lama. They just settled in India and life has been pretty hard for all Tibetan refugees. Food was scarce and a lot of Tibetan refugees had to resort to relying with food rations, something that I are not used to doing even if a lot of them are not somebody that you can call rich in their country. As a result, a lot of them would like to have some amulets from the temple or from the lamas.

Regular readers of this blog would know that during those times, amulets are only available for people who regularly make sincere contributions to the temple, whether this is monetary or food or more importantly labor contribution. But because this happened the first few months of the transfers not much donation can be done because everyone is busy rebuilding their lives, and no temple has been made yet. Furthermore, the lamas/monks has not yet started with the production of amulets and the amulets that they were able to smuggle out of their temples in Tibet are generally kept first for safety.

One day, TR approached my Guru Lama’s guru. He requested for an amulet because he said his family are getting sick, his children are sick, his wife is sick, his parents are also ill. Something that is not farfetched because the Tibetans were still adjusting to humid and very warm weather in Dharamsala at that time. Without verifying his story, my Guru Lama’s guru agreed to lend him an amulet. Little did they know that the real purpose of the acquiring an amulet is something else.

TR used the amulet to entice their Indian guards and social worker to give him a job outside the refugee site. He told the Indians that when they hold the powerful amulet they would be blessed. But he asks for something in return. He said they would have to give him a job outside the camp. They agreed. TR got his job and he returned the amulet to the temple.

If you notice, technically speaking he did it for something really good. To get himself a job and so that he can properly feed his family. But despite of that fact he still got sick and soon he was unable to walk. Western medical practitioners and even Tibetan medicine people are unable to find what’s wrong with him and soon he has to reach out to my Guru Lama’s guru again where he finally admitted what he did. Unfortunately, TR never recovered from his illness.

My Guru Lama said, his guru explained to him that what TR did is one of the gravest sin one can person can do. Used a holy object, or holy name (such as names of Buddhas or Bodhisattvas) maliciously even for a ‘noble’ purpose. The end doesn’t justify the mean.

My Guru Lama explained that while technically speaking TR’s purpose his noble, it was still kind of selfish and that he was malicious when he lied to be able to get the amulet. Thus he created a grave sin against the Buddha or Bodhisattva themselves, and while they are compassionate, he created his own negative karma, which he has to pay for.

So let us remember, never be malicious and selfish when it comes to Holy Names, Images or Objects, because it will create a very bad karma that even acquiring powerful amulets or images or crystals might not prevent.

Create A Permanent Powerful Aural or Spiritual Protection for Your House with the Use of Crystals and a Powerful Amulet!

Published Nobyembre 17, 2015 by jptan2012

I’m so excited to write about this because this is a new protection that I just learned a few weeks ago. This one is for those people who has their own home that is not a high rise or condominium.

By doing the technique mentioned in this particular post, you'll be putting a very strong invisible auric or aural shield to your house. It is like having a 360 degrees shield.

Recently my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong and I have been talking a lot because a reader in Davao needs an ING DENG PAY or LANDLORD’S TABLET because their house’s Feng Shui is really bad. You see as discussed in my previous post called – THE ING DENG PAY ALSO ADDRESSES THE PROBLEM OF AN AFFLICTED OR MISSING SECTOR! – houses with missing corners or that is severely affected with bad Feng Shui, the Ing Deng Pay may be the best cure for it. Not only that it also addresses the problem of people whose bazi is severely afflicted or really bad, this I discussed on the post called – ARE YOU SUFFERING FROM AN AFFLICTED BAZI THAT’S CAUSING SEVERE MONEY, CAREER, RELATIONSHIP, OR PERSONAL PROBLEMS? AN ING DENG PAY IS A POWERFUL TAOIST CURE FOR THESE PROBLEMS.

During one of our conference call with the Taoist priest who makes the ING DENG PAY, we got to talk about the different protection techniques one can use to have one’s house protected psychically or on aural level and spiritual level. It was some sort of a review but then they mentioned a protection that I haven’t heard, and this one uses crystals and a powerful amulet. Of course, I had to ‘demand’ that they teach me how to do it.

They said that this was recommended to be used to a Taiwanese actor, whose house has had several instance of burglary even if it was in a posh part of Taiwan.

Allow me to share with you this simple but powerful technique.

In your house put one Amethyst or Clear Quartz generator with one black tourmaline tumbled or raw in each of the corner. Then right at the center of the house put one Amethyst or Clear Quartz cluster surrounded by black tourmalines either raw or tumbled, as many as you would need for it to surround the Amethyst or Clear Quartz cluster. Obviously, if your house has been built already, putting the said crystals on the center might be of a hassle might be uncomfortable especially if that area is somewhere that the residents normally pass. But if this is the case you can put it slightly elevated on the floor and just put a glass cover or a table that covers it on top. But the other hassle is you have to clean all the crystals at least once a month. So it’s best to put these crystals under the ground or floor when you are just building your house. This way, the earth will continuously energized the said crystals and you no longer have to worry it.

Pure Land Buddhists believes that when you wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet, heavenly beings that has an affinity with you will hover over you.

Pure Land Buddhists believes that when you wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet, heavenly beings that has an affinity with you will hover over you.

After you’ve placed your crystals, you will have to put a powerful amulet, on your ceiling. You should look for the center and put the amulet there. It can be any amulet that you believe in as long as it is a powerful amulet. But they recommend a special Taoist amulet that you can request from a Taoist priest or priestess, or the Ing Deng Pay that is specially made for you, or even if they are Taoist they said that the Vajrapani Ruel, which is considered to be one of the most powerful amulet in the world in the Tibetan Buddhism and enjoys a lot of personal testimonies from people who got them, or the Surangama Mantra Amulet, which is also a very powerful Pure Land Buddhist amulet and also enjoys some personal testimonies are both very much recommended. I think you can also use the Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras Amulet or the Lama Atisha amulet.

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.

The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

Again, it is important that you put an amulet that you believe in. And what this does in general is that the crystals create a natural energy grid, powered by a holy object, it creates an auric field of powerful positive or holy energy. At the same time, the holy objects energy or power is further amplified and is the crystal grid acts a generator and distributor of the said energy.

By doing this you create an aural or psychic and spiritual protection to your house/home. People with bad intentions will not be able to execute their plans against you, You will find that evil spirits and bad chi won’t be able to enter your house. If the people who live there created the bad chi inside, it will be automatically extinguish by the amulet and crystal grid. On top of that you’ll find that everybody in the house, your family, even your house helpers if you employ them will be bless.

I decided to put THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS inside a test tube type glass holder that I bought in The Bead Shop, then I included the incense ash, Pink Himalayan Salt inside before sealing it. Thank you to DU, a reader and friend who took this photo.

THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS

Well, as for the Taiwanese actor even if his house was already built, he didn’t mind having the sectors where they’ll put the crystals dig up. That’s what he did, and they said it has been 7 years since and no more burglary problem and his son has never gotten sick again aside from getting the usual colds and cough.

What’s Even More Powerful or Important Than Feng Shui or An Amulet?

Published Agosto 25, 2015 by jptan2012

GenerosityI know that this blog shows that I’m a firm believer of Feng Shui and amulets, but I believe that sometimes there are things that are more powerful than Feng Shui and the wearing of amulets, even if it’s the most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon called Vajrapani Ruel. I would clarify that it’s not I disclaiming everything that I have written about Feng Shui, charms, talismans, and amulets, or even mantras, I certainly am not, but every now and then I come across stories that proves that sometimes there are more powerful things that those I just mentioned.

Let me share with you the story of BM. BM is my reader from Davao whose story I recently shared in a post called – UNEXPECTED HIGH SALES ATTRIBUTED TO THE SURANGAMA MANTRA AMULET: A PERSONAL TESTIMONY OF A READER.

Even before BM requested or invited to have the Vajrapani Ruel or the Surangama Mantra Amulet, she has already been financially lucky, and from what I gather, she is also quite contented with her family life. She has a husband that she loves and that loves her and children that are intelligent but are also very respectful and obedient, not to mention intelligent.

In fact, BM got two Vajrapani Ruels and the Surangama Mantra Amulet not for herself but for her husband and brother. She just wants to help make her husband’s business more progressive and her brother and his family more stable.

BM has several businesses and she also has several properties, some of them are here in Manila, she let her brother and his family stays there for free.

I really don’t know where to start or what to share but BM has manifested an inspiring selfless generosity. She takes care of her brother’s family because her brother and sister – in – law are both of out job, so she helps them. When I say help, she really helps, so much so that her nephews have come to consider her as their second mother. She would not just send money, although she does that also, but she would even cook and send food from airport to airport, and she would do their groceries. BM would always say that she has a duty to her brother, but really what she is doing is beyond duty, because she doesn’t have to take care of every minute detail if it is just duty, but she does because it is really out of love for her brother and his family and also out of generosity.

BM also sends her nephews to school, and it doesn’t end there, she even paid for her nephew’s condo or dormitory so that her nephew will not have to go home everyday something that is terribly inconvenient because the school is several hours away from where they live.

But some of you would say that is her family, she will naturally help them. But that’s the point, her generosity, kindness and compassion is not only for her family. BM would regularly send youths or jobless people to undergo some training. She would even tutor them if the need arises, and she would give them allowance. After they finish school or their training, they have the option to work for BM or somebody else. They’re not tied to her!

She also makes monthly donations to a church or charity. I don’t remember which one or maybe it’s both.

I can say more things, but I guess you get the point. So why am I saying this, because I firmly believe that her good luck comes from her genuine kindness, compassion, and generosity! Who can beat that!

As I write this, her Surangama Mantra Amulet should be on her way to her. I think it will be more effective because BM is a good person. So the next time you want to get the Vajrapani Ruel or the Surangama Mantra Amulet or any other amulet. Think about BM. Yes these things are powerful holy objects that helps us gets blessing, but maybe sometimes the reason you’re not getting any blessings is maybe you’re the opposite of BM. If that’s the case then now you should know where to start.

Almost Directly Receiving a Gift from the Buddhas by Receiving a Stupa: Another Wonderful Gift from a Reader

Published Pebrero 2, 2015 by jptan2012

Several posts ago entitled – AURALITE: A GIFT OF LIGHT FROM A READER – I talked about how one reader, Atty. B, gave me a wonderful that I also need at that the time the gift was given to me. In that particular post, I mentioned that another reader has given me a very wonderful gift. The gift that was given to me is a Stupa!

AC contacted me because she wanted to get the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, this led to a series of email conversations and she really did give me an impression of being a very kind person. In one of her emails she inquired about getting a Stupa as somebody in the temple that she attends to offered this to her. I told her owning a stupa is such a wonderful blessing, especially if this was blessed by a high-ranking lama like Lama Zopa Rinpoche. She ended up acquiring the Stupa and what’s more her very kind heart and generosity prompted her to get one more for me to be given as a gift!!!!!

As mentioned before, receiving amulets or holy objects as a gift does not make it holier or more powerful, but the act of receiving a gift makes the object comes with an auspicious chi brought about by the giver’s generosity.

Even if I put her generosity aside simply having a Stupa is such a wonderful blessing, and words won’t be able to convey how happy and blessed I feel to have receive that gift from AC. I can’t imagine how much blessings I’ll receive because of the Stupa. In fact, I’m sure even my friend and reader, DU, who was the middle person to get the Stupa from AC and to give it to me will definitely have received some blessing simply because she held it and having it in her possession.

This is the stupa that AC gave me.

This is the stupa that AC gave me.

I thought I’d show my gratitude to AC by asking my Guru Lama whether I can invite a Vajrapani Ruel(1), which is considered as one of the most powerful if not the most powerful amulet in Buddhism, in behalf of AC and I’m really happy that my Guru Lama agreed and told me to go ahead with it. AC herself has expressed gratitude in advance for the Vajrapani Ruel(2), which has had enjoyed some personal testimonies already.

But why am I so excited about the Stupa? Not only because it was a gift from a reader but also because it is a Stupa!!! I think I should make myself clearer. Allow me to tell you first what is a Stupa and what are the blessings that it can bestow.

A stupa, which is pronounced with long U sound, is almost similar to a pagoda but is more mound – like and/or hemispheric structure that contains one or more Buddhist relics. A big stupa will usually contain a relic from a high-ranking Buddhist monk, usually a green, or red, or white, or yellow pearl – like object produced by high-ranking lamas when they are cremated. Surprisingly, people who are holy only produce these pearl – like objects. A layperson may produce this also and becomes an indication of the goodness of the person’s heart.

It is believed that Shakyamuni or the Historical Buddha’s body was cremated and the ashes were divided into equal parts and which was put inside 8 different stupas. Two additional stupas were further made for the temporary casket that was made for the Buddha and for the left over embers. However, these stupas were not identified.

All stupas represent the Buddha with his crown of enlightenment and in meditative lotus seat position.

The ubiquitous Five Element Pagoda, which is a very famous and effective cure for the Five Yellow Killing Star or the #5 Flying Star is actually patterned after a stupa and not a pagoda. Pagoda was used to make it more familiar with the majority, because a stupa is somewhat limited to Buddhists. The difference between a stupa and a pagoda is that a stupa houses relics and is considered a very holy structure. A pagoda may or may not be a religious or spiritual structure, and while it may house holy images, it doesn’t have relics.

Building a stupa is not an easy matter. Obviously, in modern times you’ll need the skill of an architect and an engineer, but it is impossible to build a stupa without the leadership of a monk who is familiar with building one. There are a lot of empowerment ceremonies, Buddhist texts transmissions and ceremonies for one to build a stupa. And the most important component is the presence of a relic. In the absence of a physical relic, the Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras, which are considered as a first class relic because it is said that it was the Buddha himself of wrote those particular mantra are put inside the stupa. All small and multiple – produced stupas, like AC’s gift for me, will have the Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras. It is highly considered immoral to own a physical relic for oneself. Because it should always be shared thus it is always put inside a stupa or hidden in temples. Most Buddhist temples will also have the stupa easily accessible so people can circumambulate around it, if space is of a concern, thee stupa is put on top of the structure so that everyone who passes under it will be blessed.

The different kinds of stupa are:

  • Relic Stupa, and it is the relics of the Buddha, or human Bodhisattvas (like monks) are interred here. These relics are considered first class relics. 
  • Object Stupa, where in the relics that are interred are the things used by the Buddha or monks. For example, their prayer wheels, mala, clothes, shoes, etc. These items are considered second-class relics. 
  • Symbolic Stupa, these kinds of stupas are built to symbolize various Buddhist aspects. For these kinds of stupas, the Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras are interred. 

In Tibetan Buddhism, these different kinds of Stupas are further, sub – categorizes into the 8 different types, which is called the Eight Great Deeds Stupas, which are base on the different events in Shakyamuni Buddha’s life.

The Eight Great Deeds Stupas are the following:

  1. LOTUS BLOSSOM STUPA, which is also known as the BIRTH STUPA, or STUPA OF HEAPED LOTUS, or BIRTH OF THE SUGATA STUPA.
  2. ENHLIGHTENMENT STUPA, which is also called as the STUPA OF THE CONQUEST OF MARA.
  3. STUPA OF DESCENT FROM TUSHITA HEAVEN, which is also called as the STUPA OF DESCENT FROM THE GOD REALM.
  4. STUPA OF GREAT MIRACLES, and is also known as the MIRACLE STUPA, or STUPA OF CONQUEST OF THE TIRTHIKAS.
  5. STUPA OF RECONCILIATION OF THE SANGHA, which is also known as the STUPA OF RECONCILIATION.
  6. STUPA OF COMPLETE VICTORY, which is also VICTORY STUPA.
  7. STUPA OF MANY DOORS, which is also called as the STUPA OF MANY GATES or STUPA OF TURNING OF WHEEL.
  8. STUPA OF NIRVANA, which is also called as the STUPA OF PARINIRVANA.

Much later, another kind of Stupa came out of Tibetan Buddhism, which is the Kalachakra Stupa. It has nothing to do with the Buddha’s life as represented by the other Stupas, but rather it is a symbolism of the tantric practice of Kalachakra. This particular stupa is said to be able to double the protective energies of the other Stupas as enhanced by a Kalachakra symbol.

The image below will show the images of the different Stupas, but it has to be noted that these are just the basic image, for example as Lotus Blossom Stupa may look a little different from one another. The stupa that AC gave me is a Stupa of Nirvana.Stupas 8stupas 8b

A sample of a Kalachakra Stupa

A sample of a Kalachakra Stupa

Simply seeing, being around or owning a stupa will give you a lot of blessings, more so if one circumambulate or prostate around it. Allow me to share some of them here:

  • Blessing of happiness.
  • Karma Cleansing or Purification of Defilements.
  • Gift of Dharma Blessing. (My own journey in learning the Dharma started when I came across a Stupa. After that I was granted the blessing of having access to the Dharma and studying it. Dharma is basically deeper Buddhist teachings.)
  • Eradication of Sufferings.
  • Purification of the Mind.
  • Gift of a Better Next Life.

More than the above mentioned benefits it also helps establish peace and harmony.

It is said that when a wind touches or passes through a stupa it temporarily becomes a holy wind, and has the ability to give blessing those who are ‘touched’ by the wind, even if they don’t believe in Buddhism.

Simply receiving a stupa as gift brings you numerous wonderful blessings, and giving it as a gift earns you not just numerous wonderful blessings but also a lot of good karma merits!

I took the liberty of copy – pasting below the text from a talk given by Lama Zopa Rinpoche about the stupa. But before that I again would like to thank AC for the wonderful gift and for the wonderful blessings that comes with it! It’s more than just a Buddhist gift; it’s a gift of good life!!!!

 

The Vajrapani Ruel Stories (3): Early Karmic Death was Erased with Good Deeds and the Vajrapani Ruel

Published Enero 25, 2015 by jptan2012

In my post called THE WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL AMULET IN THE BUDDHIST PANTHEON CALLED VAJRAPANI RUEL, I mentioned how I’ve always wanted and desired to get the Vajrapani Ruel, which is technically not an amulet. It is generally called an amulet for the lack of term, but it is one of the highest and most powerful forms of amulet in the world. It is an ‘amulet’ that proves to be one of the most difficult to acquire. In fact, the last time it was made was 40 to 50 years ago.

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 is just one of 3 different known ruels in the world, and it is said that the Vajrapani Ruel is the most powerful ruel. Not only is it a protective ruel, but it is also a wish and wealth granting ruel.

According to my Guru Lama, I may be the very first person to write about the Vajrapani Ruel for the general public. Meaning on the net. There are some very rare and quite few books written about the Vajrapani Ruel in Tibetan, and ironically in Chinese. I say, ironic because the Chinese government is one reason why the Vajrapani Ruel and other Buddhist holy objects and amulets are even rarer and really scarce these days. In fact, some Buddhist monks, specially the younger ones, might have heard of it but has not actually seen one.

However, I was surprised that when I wrote about the Vajrapani Ruel, there are a few friends and fellow Buddhist students from Malaysia and Singapore who contacted and expressed their excitement about the Vajrapani Ruel. Maybe it is not as ‘unknown’ as my Guru Lama thought it is to be.

One of my Nepalese – Chinese friends from Singapore shared with me a story, which was supposedly shared with him by his grandmother. The story was shared with him because his grandmother was the one who first told him about the Vajrapani Ruel and she also kept on telling my friend to find and get one if he can.

Today, allow me to share that story with you. Please note that given the story was only transmitted orally to my friend who shared it with me also, I cannot vouch for the 100% accuracy.

According to my friend’s grandmother (GM), as told to me by my friend, she first heard about the Vajrapani Ruel when she was a young girl in Nepal. The eldest grandson (EGS) of the their family, which is GM’s cousin, was committed by their grandparents to become a monk. So at the young age of 4 or 5, according to my friend there are times that GM will say 4 but there are times that she will say it’s 5, he was sent to the monastery where GM’s and EGS’s eldest uncle was also a monk (UM/Uncle Monk).

The Venerable Abbot of the said monastery and temple was an enlightened man who has psychic abilities. He was able to divine that EGS will not become a monk because he is destined to die at the age of 7 because of bad karma that he earned in his previous life. However, he also felt that he should still accept him so that he can help prepare EGS for his next life. Venerable Abbot confided this to UM, and they decided that when the time comes, they would send EGS back home for a ‘vacation’ so that he can spend time with his family. They’re doing this because they don’t want EGS’s family to be heartbroken.

Soon the time of his supposed death was about to arrive. So Venerable Abbot and UM decided to send EGS home, but before it happened, Venerable Abbot confided to another old monk about the situation. The old monk then told Venerable Abbot that he would be willing to share his Vajrapani Ruel to EGS, that it may aide him to get a better next life because the Vajrapani Ruel also helps cleanse bad karma.

So EGS was sent back home for a 3 – month long vacation, because as divine by the Venerable Abbot, EGS shall passed on the last week of his 3rd month ‘vacation’ in his family home. To get the Vajrapani Ruel, they decided to tell the family of EGS to bring EGS back to them after the end of the third month. But at that time they decided not to tell EGS’s family what the Venerable Abbot has foreseen.

At the end of the third month, UM will always wait for his brother or any of his family members to go the monastery and temple to inform them of EGS’s death. Then on his 3rd or 4th day of waiting of a family member, he did see his brother, EGS’s father coming, but much to his surprised EGS was with him.

UM was really surprised because their Venerable Abbot is known for his the accuracy of his divinations and he really couldn’t believe that Venerable Abbot will fail in his divination of EGS’s karmic death. Soon, Venerable Abbot did another divination, and saw that indeed his bad karma of an early death has been erased. He also saw that the Vajrapani Ruel didn’t actually changed his life but it did enhanced a good deed of the boy that lead him to eradicate his bad karma.

Venerable Abbot interviewed EGS and asked him what he did when he went home. EGS was unable to share anything specific as to what could have changed in his karma. In fact, he and his father said that aside from doing his duties to chant the mantras, he will just simply go out and play in the pond or lake or the woods everyday, he was just being a boy and sometimes he will help his parents with their chores. Venerable Abbot didn’t think that helping do the household chores is enough good karma to erase his bad karma of an early death. But they were unable to get anything out from the boy and so they just let it go.

Several weeks after EGS went back to the monastery, he asked permission to go to the nearby pond. When asked why, EGS replied that when he went back home for his vacation, he noticed that their pond is full of ants, and a lot of times several of these ants will fall off the water. He felt bad for them so he would save as many as he can. He then said, that while playing in the lake, he would also make sure that the little insects will not fell go near the water so that they won’t drown, furthermore, he’ll sometimes go into the woods to pick up fruits the fell off the trees to feed the various insects.

In Buddhism, all animals or insects are considered to have precious life. So by saving an ant tantamount to saving a life, and thus creates good karma.

That’s when the Venerable Abbot realized what saved EGS. His good deeds and compassion towards the insects earned him a lot of good karma, and because he has the Vajrapani Ruel at that time, which has the ability to erase bad karma and enhanced good karma, EGS’s karmic death was erased. According to GM, although she has lost touch with her family in Nepal, she believes that EGS who is a few years younger than her is now still a monk in Nepal. The last time she heard EGS was the assistant to the new Venerable Abbot.

This is proof that having the Vajrapani Ruel really helps in making a better life possible.
