When You Experienced A Miracle or Some Good Luck, Do Not Forget What You Promised When You Were Down!

Published Setyembre 21, 2016 by jptan2012

VS is a 57 – year – old husband and father of six. He is a Taiwanese who got the opportunity to meet my Guru Lama in one his trips to Taipei. VS who grew up as a Buddhist heard from one of his friend that there is a visiting Tibetan monk who will give an intimate talk in their local Buddhist temple. VS for some reason thought of seeking out my Guru Lama.

Unfortunately, VS was not able to get into the talk. The temple did accommodate more than what the original number that they announced but because the place is quite small, they were unable to accommodate more even if they wanted to. But my Guru Lama, upon hearing that there are more people waiting outside the Buddha Hall, decided to do a short blessing for those who wanted to hear him talk. Mind you my Guru Lama is not a famous Lama but somehow he attracted a large group. My Guru Lama to personally bless one – by – one everybody who wasn’t able to enter the hall to hear him talk.

When it was VS’ turn to be blessed, he broke the instructions and begged my Guru Lama to give him time to talk to him because he wants to air out his concerns. My Guru Lama agreed to meet after the session ended.

In that session he aired out his sentiments, my Guru Lama never shared with me what he and VS talked about that day. But when I met VS in a special ceremony conducted by my Guru Lama in Singapore, VS shared with me what he shared.

According to VS, he has been poor all his life, and has been going to the temple to pray that he may have a better life, a good life. He also said that two of his sons, unfortunately got into drugs and he said that’s also the other reason he wanted to seek out my Guru Lama. Furthermore, the most important reason for seeking out my Guru Lama is that his wife has cancer and he was hoping my Guru Lama could help.

VS shared with me that my Guru Lama took pity on him and gave him a special amulet. When he got the amulet he made a promised to the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas thru my Guru Lama that when his life become better he will make donations to the temple (not necessarily at the temple of my Guru Lama) and that he will continue to feed the monks and Buddhist nuns in India.

A few months after that he said he was offered by a rich guy to become an industrial partner in a business that the rich guy is putting up. His wife’s cancer was healed through chemotherapy, even though initially the doctors said that they are not very optimistic that the chemotherapy will take the cancer out, but it will only prolong the life of his wife. Both of his kids went to rehab and were eventually released ‘rehabilitated’.

That was about 7 years ago. I met VS 4 years ago when he was only about 53 years old. He looks old. He looks about 70 and I’m not exaggerating. We both met in Singapore in a special ceremony conducted by my Guru Lama. He went there for free thru a sponsorship of the other students of my Guru Lama. Somebody hosted him because he was too poor to get a hotel room, even a budget one.

What happened? According to VS he was not able to fulfill his promise. He didn’t make the donation; he didn’t donate for the food of the monks or nuns. But most importantly, he forgot about the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas, he forgot about my Guru Lama, and worst of all he forgot what gave him the luck. His wife passed away because of cancer, one of his sons died of overdose, and his other son is also back being a drug addict. He lost his business because his business partner pulled out because VS ‘became a different person’.

VS is the one who shared with me all these. I asked him whether he became bitter and he said yes. He contacted my Guru Lama again, and like a prodigal son by Guru Lama ‘accepted’ him again. According to my Guru Lama the reason why VS had bad luck again is because he sort of ‘lied’ and indirectly ‘slandered’ the Buddhas, the Bodhisattvas, and the Sangha by renegading on his promises that he made when he was really down. He did get his good luck, but it was not sustained because he forgot about his promises.

Some people might say that this is harsh. Maybe, but we should all remember that karma is not controlled by the Buddha or Buddha or Bodhisattva or Bodhisattvas. It is totally dependent on what we do. They may help prevent it but in the end by showering us with good merits, but at the end of the day, it is up to us. In this case, VS was the one who discredit the good luck that he got.

I write this now I also notice that some people when they consult me for concerns and try to request for either the Vajrapani Ruel or Surangama Mantra Amulet or the Illness Suppression Amulet, they tend to make promises like – when I get a miracle I will do this, I will do that. But sometimes they fail to do so. It doesn’t matter whether the promise was mentioned to me, to a friend, or even just to one’s self. Because a miracle is a miracle, and once you commit to do something for the temple or the Buddha or a Bodhisattva do it. There should be no excuses.

Getting Support Through Feng Shui

Published Disyembre 1, 2012 by jptan2012

In my recent trip to San Diego, California, my best friend’s brother and sister-in-law generously volunteered to host me all throughout my stay there. I’m really glad that I took on their offer to stay in the house because I don’t have to eat hotel food, and to be honest, I saved up a lot of money because I don’t have to pay for hotel room and J, my best friend’s sister-in-law always make sure that I have food and I don’t go hungry. That only downside is that I gained some pounds and fat, a big thing for somebody who is trying to lose some weight. I really love J’s cooking, she has put a lot of American twist to the Filipino dishes.

It is in their house, one dinner, that I met W, a German – American guy who works in a bank in the States. During our dinner, conversation went into Feng Shui, and this is when W consulted me about his problem in the office.

According to W, he believes that he is fairly successful and that he has a good life. However, there’s something that has always bothered him, everything he does in the office, he always have to ‘…fight for it, fight with a capital F-I-G-H-T…’. W said he never seemed to have gotten his superiors’ support even though he has fairly proven himself and that his projects has mostly been successful. He once thought that it is a personality difference issue but even when one of his superior was replaced, he still faces the same problem with the new one. He gets along with his new superior on a personal level, but somehow it seems like he is unable to get the superior’s professional support.

P, my best friend’s brother, and J suggested to W to request me to Feng Shui his office. I told W if he believes in Feng Shui I’d be willing to do it for him and told him to bring me to his office. We then agreed on a date.

When W brought me to his office, I immediately saw the problem. He has a spacious office, but the office also has a glass wall, and when seated his back is facing the window/glass wall. This means that he doesn’t have any support coming from his back!!!

The problem is pretty obvious and quite simple to cure. Having an ‘empty space’ behind your work area will translate to a literal support-less atmosphere for you in your work. Like what W experienced, if there’s nothing behind you, you also won’t get any support, no matter how good you are in what you do. Sometimes, even if there’s a window behind you but there’s a building behind you, and it’s quite near your own building, then that building may act as a Feng Shui support. In the case of W, there’s no tall building behind him that can act as a Feng Shui support.3 Peak Mountain

Since he already has a small table behind him, I suggested that he put a Feng Shui 3-Peak Mountain behind him. Normally, what I would suggest is to put a painting of a mountain, however, since it’s a glass wall that also serves as a window, it’s impossible to hang a painting here, thus a Feng Shui Three-Peak Mountain will do. When it comes to effectivity, they’re both quite effective. It’s just that a Feng Shui 3-Peak Mountain might look a little out-of-place in his office.

Some 3-Peak Mountain has the Three Celestial Guardians. This works quite well as well.

I think, the Feng Shui 3-Peak Mountain is the solution to his problem, but I also suggested for him to wear a Ruyi pendant or carry it as a keychain to give him more authority.

It’s been about 2 months since I suggested the cure and W emailed me to say that he can now feel the significant change in the way his superiors look at his projects or proposals. They now give him their support. A colleague also commented that there is some change in W, according to W, the colleague said that he now seems more confident and authoritative. I’m guessing it’s because of the Ruyi pendant he started wearing.

I just want to give some guidelines about having a mountain and choosing a mountain picture to get support.

This is an ideal painting of a mountain that you can use for Feng Shui.

This is an ideal painting of a mountain that you can use for Feng Shui.

  1. Never put the mountain in front of you. It will be confronting the mountain, thus it will create your downfall.
  2. Make the painting or picture of the mountain big enough to make it noticeable but not so big that it overcomes you.
  3. A good mountain picture is something that doesn’t have a very sharp peak or sharp ridges.

Remember, a mountain behind you will give you solid support in your work and career!

Tap Into the Powers of Chung Kwei to Be Protected from the Bad Effects of the Hungry Ghost Month

Published Hulyo 22, 2012 by jptan2012

I just shared with you why Chung Kwei is considered as the ultimate protector from evil spirits, demons, and hungry ghosts, and their ill effects with the post entitled – THE FASCINATING STORY OF CHUNG KWEI, THE ULTIMATE CATCHER AND VANQUISHER OF DEMONS, GHOSTS, AND EVIL SPIRITS!

Chung Kwei (also spelled as Chong Kwei, Chung Kui, Chong Kui, Zhong Kwei, Zhong Kui, Zhung Kwei, and Zhung Kui) is usually depicted as an extremely ugly deity. He can be considered as a wrathful god, which is usually how protector gods are depicted. His face is also usually really dark if not black, and he usually has beard. He carries a sword that he use for battling demons and evils spirits and a magical fan, which he uses to ward of hungry ghosts or ghosts. However, it is said that his face alone is enough to ward of any evil spirits that is why it is not surprising to see some pendants that simply features his face. Sometimes, he is featured with a red bat, which symbolizes that he is capable of bringing good fortune through scholarly approach. This is because he is a highly learned man when he was still living.

Tapping into his power of protection is quite simple. All you need is to invite his image into your house. It is best to place him near the main door. However, if you can you can also put him by the stairs. Having his image in your office is also a good way into tapping into his protection for your office.

It is also advisable to wear an image of Chung Kwei as a pendant. Wearing his image as a pendant will ensure your protection. I always wear my Chung Kwei black jade pendant whenever I travel and I usually hang it beside my bed when I sleep, especially, if I suspect the hotel room where I’m staying is a Yin room.

However, there are some guidelines when choosing your Chung Kwei.

In choosing an image of a Chung Kwei for your home or office, it is important that:

  1. The image is made of wood, ceramic, porcelain, stone and never plastic or metal, unless it’s made of real gold.
  2. The image of Chung Kwei’s face should be red, black, or at the very least dark color.
  3. The image of Chung Kwei should have a fierce or angry looking face.
  4. The image should also have either all or one of his implements – sword and magical fan.

In choosing a Chung Kwei pendant, it is important that:

This particular Chung Kwei pendant features only the face. Notice the 2 little devils besides him with fearful face, it represents the first devils that Zhong Kui vanquished!

  1. The Chung Kwei pendant (Zhong Kui Pendant) is made of a red stone or black stone (ink jade which is technically green is also acceptable) or real gold. These are the only acceptable material for a Chung Kwei pendant. If getting a gold, make sure that it’s made of either yellow or red gold and not white gold. Anything outside these three are unacceptable. There are some Chung Kwei amulets available that are made of metal painted with gold. That’s not acceptable, plus it really has to be a pendant. It’s also very impolite to put the image of Chung Kwei in your pocket.

    This is a sample of an ink jade pendant. It looks like it’s black, but if you put a light behind it it’s green tone will appear. This is acceptable.

  2. The Chung Kwei pendant should have a fierce and/or angry face.
  3. It’s fine to simply get a pendant that just features the face.

The problem is it’s quite difficult to get an image of Chung Kwei either as a pendant or as statuette, unless, you’re from Malaysia and Singapore. In the Philippines, I’ve only seen one or two stores in Chinatown in Binondo that sells good statuette of Chung Kwei. I now have only one piece of the statuette that I got in Singapore that I can dispose of. It is even harder to find a good Chung Kwei pendant, again, unless, you travel to Singapore, Malaysia, or Hong Kong.

This is a rare black jade pendant image of Chung Kwei. Was fortunate enough to find one in Beijing, China in a small shop.

Before wearing or ‘displaying’ your Chung Kwei it is important that you have it bless by a Taoist priest. If a Taoist priest is not immediately available to you, or if the Taoist priest that you met is not familiar with Chung Kwei, you can bless your image yourself.

Blessing an image of a Chung Kwei:

  1. Make sure that your Chung Kwei is really clean from any physical dirt.
  2. Place your Feng Shui on top of a bowl of rock salt or sea salt; adjust accordingly depending on the size of your Chung Kwei.
  3. For pendants cover it with a piece of red paper with your name and birthday on it.
  4. For statuettes, you can place the red paper on its base or foot. Write your complete address.
  5. Leave it there for 3 days.
  6. On the third day, light 3 candles in front o the Chung Kwei while it’s still on top of the rock salt or sea salt. Small candles will do, and make sure they are made of 3 different colors – red, black, and yellow or white.
  7. Burn the paper before 6PM.
  8. You can start wearing or displaying your Chung Kwei the following day.
