The Creation of Wealth (3): The Illiterate Son Whose Only Wish Is For His Parents to Have a Good Life – Another Miraculous Story About the ‘Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet’!

Published Setyembre 20, 2017 by jptan2012

Today, allow me to share with you again another story shared by my Guru Lama about the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET that he rediscovered from a copy of more than a thousand year old Tantric Scripture.

Unlike other amulets, for say the Vajrapani Ruel, the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet doesn’t just pull wealth luck from your ‘secondary paths’ or ‘alternative paths’ but rather if there’s no wealth luck in your other paths in your Bazi Chart, it creates one for you. It creates wealth luck for you thus I decided to call this series as THE CREATION OF WEALTH.

Vaisravana Dzambhala Wealth Amulet

The Vaisavana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet has the consecrated copies of the mantras of King Vaisravana of the Four Heavenly Kings and the mantras of the Five Dzambhalas. Furthermore, there are some special ingredients in powder form that are included to add to the potency of the amulet. Before it is sealed it is furthered consecrated on the image of The Four Heavenly Kings.It is placed in a metal case, not just for its durability and protection but according to the Tantric Buddhist Scripture book where Guru Lama got the instructions for this amulet, it has to be placed in cylindrical metal case to symbolize continuity and stability.

Let me share with you the story of Chun Hua or Anthony. Anthony came from a poor family, both of his parents are illiterate and because of their hardships they were unable to send Anthony to school also. As a result he became illiterate as well. Anthony’s family is a Taiwanese farmer who works on the farms of some rich person.

Growing up, Anthony thought that this is fine, but soon he realized that he wants to give good things to his parents, he wants them to be able to rest and taste good food. And so for a time he despised being poor.

Guru Lama at one time visited Taiwan and gave a talk, pujas, and blessings in various provinces of Taiwan. One of the places he visited was the province where Anthony and his parents live. He met Guru Lama, and for some reason, reasons that even Guru Lama can’t explain, he decided to talk to Anthony. Anthony casually mentioned his problems but Guru Lama clearly remembers that there was no sign of self-pity, or anger, or frustration, he was simply stating a fact. Instinct told Guru Lama that he should make the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet for Anthony. Guru Lama then instructed his acolyte to get Anthony’s full name and address so he can send him the amulet.

And so Guru Lama made the amulet for him, and sends it with an instruction that when he makes a better life for himself, he should remember to help the less fortunate. When I met Anthony is the temple where Guru Lama serves as an Abbot he remembers having a neighbor read the letter for him, who then laughed at him for believing in amulets.

That neighbor is now also a Sangha member of the temple where Guru Lama serves as an Abbot. You see, the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet worked for Anthony, and the very first person he helped in getting a better life is that neighbor who read the letter for him and laughed at him. I’ve met both of them, as well as Anthony’s parents and wife because they join the annual retreat conducted by Guru Lama.

Yes, Anthony had his life turn around. He will say that he is not rich and looking at how he dresses he still dress simple. But how one knows that he is quite affluent, I personally know the number of people he sponsors to be able to attend the retreats conducted by Guru Lama, but more than that in a conversation, Guru Lama casually thanked him for helping send 15 monks to college to “ordinary” school so they can also have regular education. The Sangha needs engineers, lawyers, etc that are monks.

Anthony told me the hardest part of being a businessman is still being unable to comprehend everything that is why he is making sure that his son and daughter will have good education. He is also thankful that his wife who has had some college education is also helping him with the documents.

Now, an illiterate becoming a successful businessman, if that is not a miracle, I don’t know what it is.

White Tara: An Emanation of Goddess Tara that Grants Fertility, Longevity, and Helps Overcome Life’s Hardships

Published Setyembre 2, 2013 by jptan2012

More than a year ago, I wrote about Goddess Tara who is one of the most revered Goddess in Tibetan Buddhism. Regular readers of this blog would know that she is considered as a The Mother of Swift Liberation because of how fast she acts on our request.

For those who are not familiar with Goddess Tara, I suggest that before continuing to read this post that you check out my earlier post about Goddess Tara. Please just click on the link:

GODDESS TARA, THE MOTHER OF SWIFT LIBERATION

PAYING HOMAGE TO GODDESS TARA

GET WEALTH ABUNDANCE AND FINANCIAL SECURITY THROUGH THE WEALTH GRANTING TARA

Today, I would like to introduce to you to one of the most powerful emanation of Goddess Tara, which is the White Tara.White Tara2

White Tara is a very powerful emanation of Goddess Tara that grants fertility. One of my cousins had a hard time conceiving and when I suggested that she pray to the White Tara she conceived just after 2 months of chanting White Tara’s mantra.

More than being a Goddess of Fertility, White Tara is also a Goddess of Longevity. People who are sick or people who are in physical danger can simply call on White Tara, recite her mantra and they can be assured that help will come.

Lastly, White Tara is a goddess who helps overcome life’s hardships or obstacles. An elderly woman whom I met in Singapore attested this to me; I was looking for some pendants when we got to talk to each other. On my hand at that time was an image of Goddess Tara in jade pendant. She started talking to me asking me whether I’m a devotee of Goddess Tara, I said yes, and she also shared that she is a devotee of Goddess Tara, especially White Tara.

According to BL, she got widowed an early age of 25, and she already had three children then. She used to live in China, when her husband brought her to Singapore, her in-laws didn’t like her so she they ‘abandoned’ her when her husband died. According to her she was so poor that she had to beg for food. Going back to China was not an option because of the Chinese tradition that you don’t really go back to your family once a woman got married, on top of that, like most Chinese woman her age, she was illiterate and won’t be able to write a letter even if she knows where to send the letter. BL at that time we met was approximately 73 years old.

Not having of friends of her own and being abandoned by her husband’s family, she had to work for herself and for her to survive, she begged for food, and according to her the lowest moment of her life was when she had to give up her youngest child. A childless couple adopted her baby.

BL said to make things worst she was unable to get a decent good paying job because she was illiterate. However, an elderly woman took pity of her and got her as a maid. It was this elderly woman who introduced BL to White Tara. According to BL, as soon as she started praying to White Tara, and saying White Tara’s mantra everything just got better.

BL now spends her time busying herself helping single moms through her foundation is funded by her 3 children. She named the foundation after the elderly woman who took her in.

Her children all grew up to have their own business. And while she never officially got her youngest child back, she said it doesn’t matter, because the one who adopted her youngest child became family as well, and in fact they live in the same building, with units right beside each other.

All these blessings according to BL are because of White Tara.

One curious thing though that BL shared with me is that she notice that for her White Tara works best if its carved out of a meteorite. She doesn’t have an explanation as to why because she doesn’t even understand it.

A White Tara pendant from my personal collection. I still don't know why but I agree with BL that a White Tara pendant carved out of a meteorite is more effective or powerful.

Because of her statement, I started my quest for a White Tara image and pendant carved out of a meteor. I now have in my possession 3 White Tara pendant carved out of a meteorite but to this day, I’m still looking for an image of White Tara carved out of a meteorite that I can put on my altar.
