If Life is Predetermined Thru the Bazi Chart Does That Mean We Can’t Do Much About Our Future?

Published Setyembre 11, 2017 by jptan2012

One of the most common questions that I get is whether we can do anything about our Bazi Chart (Paht Chee Chart). Does that mean if our bazi shows that we don’t have love luck or wealth luck does that mean we will never get rich or we will never be lucky in terms of romance luck?

This is an interesting topic because a lot of people get confused about this.

It is true that the bazi chart pretty much determines the life of a person, but what most people don’t understand is that this chart or road map is seldom linear and seldom unilateral. While there is single strong path that the bazi shows, a good bazi reader will see the other paths or what I would like to call sub – paths or alternative path. These sub – paths or alternative paths are there, although it is harder to calculate and determine this but it is there.

All of us have a dominant path, and this is what is easily seen. But most of us have sub- paths also and these are usually 3 or 4 sub – paths or at the very least a minimum of another one. I have never encountered a person without a sub – path, but my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong and Guru Lama both said that there are people who only have one single path.

Let me explain it further. The bazi chart will always show the dominant path, and only a good bazi reader can see the sub – paths, even this they may or may not see all the sub – paths or the alternative paths.

If our dominant path is bad, how do we then veer away from it and go one of the sub – paths or alternative paths? This is where a good bazi reader comes in. But before that you have to know that a Feng Shui expert or a Feng Shui consultant may or may not be a bazi chart reader. Here in the Philippines, most of the commercialized Feng Shui consultants or experts are not bazi reader. It is easy to determine this, if they all ask from you is your birthdate and not the time, or all they need to know is whether you were born in a year of the Ox or Rabbit or Dragon, etc. These are clear signs that they don’t know how to analyze a bazi chart. So a good bazi reader will be able to tell you what you should do or wear or carry to help veer away from your dominant part. Usually, specific instructions are involve like you should work harder and work in the field of electronic for example. Or they should be able to tell you to wear more red or blue or white, etc. Or they should be able to wear a specific amulet.

The importance of wearing a legitimate authentic and powerful amulet also comes in to play. An authentic powerful amulet will also help drive you the best path, or to an alternative path that you are ready to go through. Sometimes we are not directed to the best path because our consciousness is not able to discern bigger things for us. Or sometimes the miracle that serves as the key to the alternative path is already right in front of us but we refuse to see it only because we want something else or are expecting something else.

Now, when we get to this alternative path, it becomes our dominant path, but then again it is seldom linear or unilateral, so from this dominant are other alternative paths also.

It is also possible that from our good dominant path we downgrade to one of the bad paths due to bad karmic things that we do on this life.

So working on this principle, what an amulet does or a Feng Shui charm or cure does is lead us to one of the alternative paths, this path may or may not be the best path, but it will be most likely better than the dominant path.

What an amulet does for us is that it pulls our luck from one of the alternative paths and set us to that path. Sometimes though an amulet like the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet creates luck for us, in this particular amulet, it creates wealth luck for us, which becomes our key to one of the better sub – paths.

But it is not all about amulets or Feng Shui cures or charms. Working hard and keeping a positive outlook can also lead us to the other alternative paths and make it our dominant path. Having a good heart, thus creating good karma can also lead us to better alternative path, in the same manner bad karma can lead us to bad alternative path or sub – path and turn it into our dominant path.

Furthermore, we should never underestimate the power of prayers. I have seen so many lives changed only because of the power of prayers.

And so yes, our lives are pre – determined but it is never linear or unilateral.

The Creation of Wealth: Is Wanting to Get Wealthy A Sin and A Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet Miraculous Story Shared by My Guru Lama!

Published Setyembre 1, 2017 by jptan2012

wealthEncountering new amulets is always a unique and wonderful experience. Being one of the instruments to make the amulet available to some people is even a bigger blessing. Just recently another powerful wealth amulet was introduced in this blog, the amulet is called the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, and while it is a fairly new amulet to be read about, it is technically an old amulet since the instruction of it was found by my Guru Lama about 20 years ago in a Tantric Buddhist Scripture, whose original copy is said to have been written by high lama in Tibet approximately 1,200 years ago. This means, the amulet itself has been existing at the very least 1,200 years or maybe even more. There were several initiation for an amulet in the said Tantric Buddhist Scripture, and several are in use now, however, as to why this particular amulet has not been regularly used, nobody knows.

In the post called THE VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET: AN INTRODUCTION TO A VERY POWERFUL WEALTH AMULET, I wrote about how Guru Lama in a deep meditative state discovered the holy book (a copy of the original one) where the instruction and ritual in making this amulet was written. He also made this amulet for the first time for one of his Sangha member who at that time lives in poverty but is now one of the famous rich Singaporean businessmen.

Although that was the first time Guru Lama made the amulet, it was definitely not the last. From time to time, he will make the amulet for some people who badly need it. And today, I will share one of the stories whom Guru Lama has blessed by making this amulet for that person.

Chun Qiet (CQ) is a Malaysian – Chinese who was born in Singapore. His parents are both devout Buddhist and are Sangha members of the temple where Guru Lama serves as Abbot. His family would always go to temple and Guru Lama knows the family quite well. One day, tragedy strike, CQ’s family had an accident and both of CQ’s parents died.

CQ was left with his father’s business. But CQ was only 19 then and he is not familiar with the business. An uncle came to help, but after 4 years they soon found out that he is not capable of running his brother’s business and suggested to CQ to just sell the business. Since CQ is close to Guru Lama, he sought him out and asked for blessings. CQ confessed that if he doesn’t sell the business he might be left with nothing. He might have to sell their house. But at the same time he confessed that he doesn’t want to sell his father’s business because he feels that it is his father’s legacy.

Guru Lama doesn’t agree that CQ’s father’s legacy is the business because he believes the CQ’s father’s legacy is CQ himself, who has proven himself to be a responsible and good young man.

After that conversation that Guru Lama had with CQ, he decided to make the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet for CQ.

Note: That was not the second time Guru Lama made the amulet; he has made it for several other people.

After receiving the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, CQ was approached by an old friend of his father to ask about his welfare and the business. CQ opened up about his dilemma, and surprisingly this ‘uncle’ offered to invest in the business so CQ can help bring it back up, but on top of that he offered to help in the business. CQ’s uncle was initially reluctant because he was afraid that his brother’s friend would just take over the business. But somehow CQ realized that he got nothing to lose and he decided to just plunge into it, besides he felt that the amulet would help him.

Well, it did. That was 14 years ago. CQ is now again the sole owner of the business he inherited from his father. He has since made the business bigger. His father’s only guided him in the business for 3 years after which he gradually left the business until it was made official thru legal papers again 7 years after he invested and ‘meddled’ in the business. CQ has since then ‘bought him out’ of the business again, obviously this was done amicably. CQ firmly believes that it was because of the amulet that he was fortunate enough to be reacquainted with his father’s friend.

Vaisravana.

King Vaisravana a powerful Buddhist wealth god is the chief of the Four Heavenly Kings.

Guru Lama explains that the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is not an amulet that gives you a quick rich blessing. Although, he has seen this happened also. However, he said the main effect of the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is protection; protection that you don’t lose your wealth or money, but it is also helps you create your wealth by leading you to the right people and to the right sources. Guru Lama explains that in “Maha Biddhuya Vaircona Abihidisambohi Vikurvitadthisnana Vaipulya Sudrentaha Raja Nama Dharma – Paryaya”, the Tantric Buddhist Scripture or book where he found the guideline for the initiation of the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, it clearly states that this particular wealth amulet is an amulet that helps gather wealth sources for you, then helps you actualize your wealth, after which it will stabilize it and makes it a continuous process to help your wealth grow bigger and bigger. Thus it is imperative that the container is a cylindrical metal to represent continuity and stability. What does this mean? It means it is unique in such a way that it doesn’t pull out from your bazi or karma or own luck the money, but rather it creates wealth luck for you. Other amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel, which is mainly a protective amulet but has a very high percentage of wealth luck manifesting features, will bring wealth luck to you if you have wealth luck base on your bazi or karma. Our life are pre – determined, but this doesn’t mean that it is only pre – determined on a single path, it is pre – determined with various paths, the normal is 3 – 4 paths, sometimes more, but there are times that it is only 2. However, admittedly there is a single path is more dominant than all the other paths. And what the Vajrapani Ruel and the other amulet does is get your wealth luck from all the other paths. The Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is unique in such a way that even if there is no wealth luck in all the ‘paths’ of your life, it creates it for you. So in a way it changes your wealth destiny. So this amulet is very good for people who absolutely don’t have wealth luck. Nevertheless, for those who have wealth luck already but are unable to tap into it, the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet helps pull those luck for you, make it attainable and then creates a new path for you so that it becomes sustainable and continuous, it is not a “one time, big time” thing.

Inside the metal container are the consecrated mantras of King Vaisravana, the chief of the Four Heavenly Kings, and a known wealth god, with the consecrated mantras of the Yaksa (also spelled as Yaksha) wealth gods: Green Dzambhala, White Dzambhala, Yellow Dzambhala, Red Dzambhala, and Blue Dzambhala/Black Dzambhala!

Note: Dzambhala is also spelled as Dzambala, Jambhala, Jambala, Zambhala, Zambala.

The mantras were printed under strict Mahayana guidelines found in the Tantric Buddhist book and then consecrated under strict Mahayana – Hinayana initiations. It was then sealed under special prayers and mantras that a high lama like Guru Lama can chant.

Some of you might be asking why create a wealth amulet. That is because whether we accept it or not we are living in a time where there is a lot of uncertainty and money problems or financial problems seems to becoming more common. We all want and need financial blessings or money blessings and there is nothing wrong with it. It boils down to the intent and purpose; those are the things that determine the goodness or evilness of having money.

Majority of my readers are Christians, which is ironic because a lot of those attack my site as evil are also Christians, and I’m sure a lot of you will be asking whether isn’t this bad because ‘money is the root of evil’.

Money is not the root of evil. Money is simply that money, it’s a tool. It’s just like a computer or an iron or a chair or car, how we use it makes it evil or good. We are the root of evil, but we are also definitely the root of goodness. What we make of it determines whether it becomes evil or not.

To further answer whether money is bad, or wanting to be wealthy is bad or not, allow me to share something with you.

There is a silent but big number of theologist and scholars who believes that Christianity actually evolved from Buddhism. I have written about this in the past but to briefly put it, Christianity existed about 500 to 1000 years after Buddhism. And the similarities are simply astounding. For example, the Holy Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit are very similar to the concept of the Holy Trinity of Buddhism which consists of Amitabha Buddha (who even is not considered as Shakyamuni Buddha’s father is actually an ‘older’ Buddha and was the one who sent Bodhisattva Vajrapani to protect Sakyamuni Buddha on the eve of his full enlightenment), Buddha Sakyamuni (who is the Buddha of our world, who became human first and it has to be noted, if there is a tempting of Jesus Christ, there was also a tempting of Sakyamuni Buddha on the eve of his enlightenment), and Bhaysajyaguru Buddha or better known as Medicine Buddha (which is the only celestial Buddha, a Buddha that didn’t assume a human physical form). As you can see one can see that here this three Buddhas is similar to the Holy Trinity of the Christians.

Furthermore, the concept of the Holy Mother or the Virgin Mother can be akin to Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara who became Kuan Yin Bodhisattva. Even the white dress with the veil is very much similar. Not to mention her ascension is very similar to the ascension story not of Bodhisattva Kuan Yin but rather of Buddha Sakyamuni’s earthly mother.

Note: Bodhisattva Kuan Yin is also called, as already mentioned Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva and the other names are Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva, Quan Shi Yin Bodhisattva, Quan Yin Bodhisattva, Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva, Guan Yin Bodhisattva, Bodhisattva Chenrezig, or Kannon Bodhisattva.

Not only that, the concept of Second Coming is very similar to the concept of the coming of the next Buddha, which is Maitreya Buddha. I can go on and on about the other similarities but I think that is a topic for another post.

I say this because I find it surprising the despite of the many similarities, one of the major difference is how one looks at money or wealth. Most Christians whether Catholic or otherwise are not comfortable talking about wanting to have more money or increasing their wealth. That is despite of the fact churches are quite rich. In Buddhism, there is nothing wrong in wanting more money or having the desire to increase wealth. In fact, Buddhism teaches that wealthy people have good karma, it may or may not be from this life but it can be from past life or past lives. Also, being wealthy makes it easier to practice Dharma and to become kinder and helpful to other people. I’m not saying that it is a prerequisite, but what I’m saying is that it is a good tool to make oneself become more compassionate and be helpful.

Allow me to share a story that supposedly happened thousand of year ago:

Lama Atisha, the revered lama and Mahasiddha, came across an old man, dying of starvation in Bodghaya. Lama Atisha offered his own flesh, cut from his body, to save the old man. But the old man said, “How can I eat a monk’s flesh?” Lama Atisha felt helpless in the face of this suffering. In Lama Atisha’s moment of despair, Chenrezeig (Guan Yin), the Compassionate One, appeared to Atisha and said, “Out of my eye, will manifest Jambhala, the Buddha of wealth, to help suffering beings. I shall alleviate their poverty so they will not be distracted from practicing the good heart.”

This is just one version of the timeless story of Jambhala, a “wealth deity,” a profoundly simple story that illustrates why wealth is not necessarily the root of all evils. Again, I would like to bring your attention to the statement that says: I SHALL ALLEVIATE THEIR POVERTY SO THEY WILL NOT BE DISTRACTED FROM PRACTICING THE GOOD HEART. For me this is very important.

Note: The use of Buddha of Wealth is debatable whether it was really the term use. However, some scholars argue that sometimes Buddha is use every time there was selfless act done out of extreme compassion.

Buddhism is all about non – materialistic, and I think it’s teaching about wealth and being non – materialistic perfectly compliment each other. If you are wealthy and is non – materialistic then you have practiced or is practicing one of the greatest dharma.

When Jonathan Ciliberto, a famous writer and critic of books especially Buddhist books, reviewed the book “A Shower of Jewels: Deities of Wealth” he wrote that “a lack of money is an obstacle to practice” to dharma or Buddhism. He further stated that, “Poverty itself, can make practice difficult. It is difficult enough to find birth in the precious human realm, our opportunity to practice the Dharma, without adding to suffering with the burden of poverty. One of the great perfections of practice is generosity—helping all sentient being. Instead of thinking of wealth as selfish (or feeling guilt about its accumulation), we should instead consider the Buddhist concept that wealth can be a virtuous means to help others.”

In Christianity or even in the West (generally speaking) there is some stigma attached to the idea of accumulating wealth when discussing spirituality and generosity.

Venerable Zasep Rinpoche, during a teaching at Gaden Choling explained that in eastern countries wealth practice is not frowned upon as it might be in western cultures. (I would like to clarify that eastern here refers to non – Christian countries). He further added that while meditating on and trying to accumulate wealth might be perceived as the opposite of generosity, as always with Buddhist philosophy, it comes down to intention. If the intention is to achieve virtuous deeds like generosity, healing, relieving the suffering of others and oneself, then wealth practice and accumulation is a meritorious deed.

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. Approximately 1.5 inches in height.

In the book “World of Transformation: Tibetan Art of Wisdom and Compassion”, which was authored by Marilyn Rhie, David Jackson and Robert A.F. Thurman, the father of Hollywood actress Uma Thurman who happens to be a good friend of Dalai Lama and Tibetan Buddhism scholar and professor, it stated that, These deities of prosperity are… benevolent, and are helpful to spiritual people by supporting the educational purpose of life in the Buddhist perspective.”

It makes sense, if we live in poverty and if we constantly look for money for our day to day survival, we won’t be able to progress in our spiritual growth and more importantly we are unable to help other.

The purpose of practicing wealth rituals or wearing or carrying amulets with high wealth effect like the Vajrapani Ruel, Surangama Mantra Amulet or the Traditional Sutra Amulets or wealth amulets like the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is mainly to provide the means to help oneself and others. Its purpose is not to live a life of luxury but it’s to remove the obstacle to the spiritual practice like eliminating poverty, which is certainly a hindrance.

This reminds me of people like Nanay Socorro Ramos (of the famous National Bookstore) or Bill Gates, or some of my readers like the one in Malaysia or Davao (BM) who despite of being really rich, they maintain a humble and most of all they benefit other people with their wealth. They use their money to help other people.

Now is there anything wrong in wanting to get rich, have money and become wealthy? Well, Buddhism says if the intention is pure, then there is nothing wrong with it.

Collective Karma (Part II)

Published Hunyo 2, 2017 by jptan2012

In the preceding post I talked about family collective karma. Now, allow me to talk about the other different collective karma.

I mentioned in the preceding post that we all have a collective karma with our helpers, boss, and practically everybody we know. Meaning who you work with, who you ride with in the bus, who you employ, or who employs you has a collective karma with us. This is quite complex in the sense that your collective karma with each other is related to each other, but again it doesn’t mean that you all live together at the same time, it may be at different times but with one another.

However, there is also a collective karma where you all lived at the same time and is undergoing a specific karma that you have to pay for. The indication whether this is such a case, when you all have to go through a very significant event in your work at the same time.

A few years ago, an RCBC bank in Laguna was in the headlines for a few days and became the talk of the town for a several days, weeks even, because all the employees where shot and killed in what was considered as one of the most heinous and biggest bank heist in the country. All the employees where killed on that day, and that certainly is an indication that they all have a collective karma that they have to pay for, and it is also an indication that whatever karma is that they’re paying for means that they also collectively did it at the same time on a specific lifetime.

Another example is the Ozone Disco fire tragedy that happened in the Philippines several decades ago, or even the 9-11 attacks. The is an indication that the people who were at the twin towers that day may have a collective karma that they are paying for, and that it is most likely due to something that they did at the same time on a specific lifetime.

The question is how come some people escape unhurt and while others died. I didn’t know the answer to that question until a Zen Dharma Master explained the answer to me. This is base on my experience.

When the July 16 killer quake happened in the Philippines, I didn’t feel a thing, although I was in school about to go home and everybody else certainly felt it.

When I was still in school, I would work for my father’s restaurant in the evening. One night, I went to the rest room to pee. It only took me less than 5 minutes. When I went out of the restroom I saw a group of men going out of our restaurant, our employees were all seem shock and several of the women are crying. As it turned out, somebody just robbed our restaurant by pointing a gun at them and demanding our staff to give not only the sales but also their personal items.

Jump to several years after. In one of our business, I was in the showroom fixing things when I went into the stockroom to get something. The whole process took about 5 minutes, but when I came out to the showroom, I found out that we were hold-up also. All these stories happened at a time when I wasn’t wearing much of an amulet, so the chances that it is because of the amulets saving me are nil. Years later when I attended this Zen Buddhist temple, that the abbess of that temple told me after I shared these stories with her that what I experienced was a form of collective karma. Meaning, chances are we were all involved in a negative act as a group in a specific lifetime, but that chances are I choose not to participate or may even have tried to stop them. As a result in this lifetime I was spared the trauma of all those things but because of my presence in the past life, I really have to sort of go through with it with them although in a different level or intensity.

At this point, your countrymen are also a form of collective karma. So we Filipinos or who is here in the Philippines, we all have a form of collective karma, regardless whether we know each other or not. We all have to pay for the bad karma or reap the good karma depending on what is happening to our country.

Collective Karma (Part I)

Published Hunyo 1, 2017 by jptan2012

I have talked about karma in this blog several times. But I don’t think that I have really talked about collective karma in depth. One reason I decided to write this is because of the emails that I received asking as to whose karma is it that my nephew passed away early on in life. I have answered it in a separate post but I thought I should write about collective karma for people to understand it fully.

Karma is a very complex subject. I believe one can write a book about it and still not yet fully covered it, and I doubt whether anyone really fully understands how karma works.

At any rate I will still try to explain what is collective karma.

Aside from our individual karma that we have to deal with we have collective karma. Basically, we all have collective karma with the people around us. First and foremost, we have collective karma with our immediate family and relatives. So you have collective karma with the members of your family. While you have karma of your own, there are things that you go through together as a family, and that is your collective karma. You have karmic relationships with your parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, and cousins. And if your family employs helpers at home or drivers or gardener, than you have collective karma with them also.

Now, how does it work? Basically, in your past lives, you have lived together and have done things that you are either reaping or paying for now. It doesn’t mean that all of you lived together at the same time, but you might have lived with each other at different times and are paying for karma at the moment at the same time. That’s the collective karma from past lives.

However, there is also a collective karma that is on the present. For example, the patriarch or the matriarch of the family deed some bad things, the whole family might pay for it. But this kind of collective karma usually happens only if it is the head of the family who did the bad act.

Recently, I met a person who has very good bazi chart. However, the bad acts of her parents are hindering her from achieving her full potential. And it is not only affecting her but also affecting her siblings. This is another kind of collective karma.

When my nephew passed away, one of the most common question of people is whether whose karma is it that he should die early in life. To answer that question, it is only his karma and his alone that he should passed away early in life. However, due to our collective karma, it has been destined that we should experience the pain of losing him at this time. Karmas like this are predestined and are so strong that it is quite difficult to change it. But can it be change?

To answer that question we have to consider a lot of factors. First, how strong was the imprint of that karma; how much of the imprint of that karma solely belongs to him or how much of that imprint belongs collectively to all those who are involve. And when I say to those who are involved, it refers to his family, friends, etc.

The truth is it is easier if the karma imprint that he is paying for solely belongs to him, because a strong and powerful amulet like the Vajrapani Ruel would have easily cured that karma. But if the strongest imprint is collective then it is more difficult to cure. Don’t get me wrong, why he died at that age is solely his karma, and no one else. Karma is not about you doing something and letting somebody fully pay for it, so his death was solely his karma. But the collective imprint might have made it other to cleanse this particular negative karma. But death is almost always karma from past life and not karma from the present life. But it is the collective karma of everybody that they should feel pain from this loss.

On my next post, I will discuss the other form of collective karma.

Whose Karma Is It When A Person Dies Young?

Published Mayo 15, 2017 by jptan2012

When my nephew died, my initial reaction was to ask where did we go wrong. The pain and grief that I felt, that we felt, has temporarily blind-sided us to the fact that we already know. When a person is born, he or she has about 2 or 3 pre – destined date of death. Sometimes less, sometimes more. This means that when he was born this accident and death was already pre-destined and what amulets can do is to lessen the impact and move the date to the next date.

Using the above explanation it shows that when a person dies it is basically his/her karma to die at that time. If a person dies young it is basically his or her karma to die young.

The karma of the people around him, like his parents or grandparents, uncles and aunties, cousins, siblings, or wife or children is to go through the pain of the death. This kind of karma is something that is pre-determined. It is not because you did something really bad today that you experience that pain tomorrow.

I’m writing this because aside from the numerous emails of condolence and sympathy for my family and me and the parents of my nephew are emails questioning whose karma is it the nephew died young. Two emails even suggested that it was the people around him who did something wrong in this life, in this current life, that caused the death of my nephew.

I will understand those who are asking because they sincerely can’t understand why would a young boy passed away at such an early age. But those who are malicious and are asking it because they think that because I do Feng Shui and write about Buddhist amulets that I should not be experiencing these things, those are the ones who are quite difficult to understand.

Nevertheless, to answer the question ‘Whose karma is it that he died young?’ The answer is simple; it was his and his alone. It was his karma from one of his past lives. But what I know by being malicious about somebody else’s death, and then you are creating negative karma for yourself. Be worried about that and not about whose karma is it the person dies young.

Why It Is Better to Be Vegetarian or Vegan in Feng Shui?

Published Marso 24, 2017 by jptan2012

Vegetarian-Vegan-Diet-Heart-HealthThere are several religions that advocate for vegetarianism or even going completely vegan. This is because they believe that eating other forms of sentient beings is a sin because it harms other sentient being for humans to simply be able to satisfy their taste buds and stomach.

Is there any other reason not to eat meat and become Vegan or Vegetarian?

In Feng Shui, although it is not discussed much it is actually better to become vegetarian because plants do not carry sentient chi. You see, when a sentient being like animals or fishes are slaughtered for meat, they go through a tremendous amount of negative emotions, and yes, science has proven a long time ago that animals have emotions and can feel. While it is their karma to suffer that kind of death, it doesn’t mean that we should participate with it, and the truth is we human being when we eat, it means we encourage and participate the violent death of these animals. vegan-vs-vegetarian

Those negative emotions become negative chi and are retained in their meat, and when we eat them we definitely are ingesting a lot of negative chi also.

Christians may argue that it should be okay for them. Remember that the Ten Commandments say: THOU SHALL NOT KILL. It doesn’t say thou shall not kill another human being, it simply says thou shall not kill. It’s encompassing any forms of killing.

By eating meat, we encourage more killing and this create some negative karma for us, more than that, eating the actual meat that is believed to have retained the negative chi will also make us absorbed those negative chi. Remember energy is neither created nor destroyed, but it can be transferred.vegan-pyramid-web-big

Another Lesson on Karma: There’s Nothing Good That Will Come From Cursing A Person Using the Name of the Buddha or a Bodhisattva or Deity or Even A God!

Published Marso 10, 2017 by jptan2012

It is so ironic that some people will use the name of a god or a Buddha or a Bodhisattva to curse some people, thinking that it will make it more powerful or thinking that they are right to do this.

Saying – MAY GOD / BUDDHA / BODHISATTVA PUNISH YOU! – Is actually creating bad luck for the one who utters it and not for the one who receives the curse! And yes, saying that a person should be punish is a curse because it creates an energy of suffering for the one you hate, but unfortunately since you are the one who directed that kind of energy using the name of a God or a Buddha or a Bodhisattva, it will bounce back to you. Not because they will punish you instead but because the law of karma indicates that using a holy being for your evil desires will make that energy bounce back to you.

I cannot speak for the Christian or Muslim God, but in Buddhism, the Buddha or Bodhisattva are compassionate beings who are incapable of feeling anything negative. It’s all about compassion. In fact, when we do something wrong they through the merits that we generate will save us from hell or a bad rebirth (if we have enough merits). They never punish us.

When we suffer, when we have bad luck, that is because the law of karma. The Buddhas or Bodhisattvas has nothing to do with it. It’s part of the law of the universe where it is not controlled by the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas.

Obviously, karma is a very complicated topic. The Buddhas or Bodhisattvas has nothing to do with it, although they can help save us from some bad karma if we have enough good merits or if they shower upon us some blessings. Wearing their images or amulets is a ways of earning those merits. But they will never put upon us some negative karma to let us suffer. If we do something wrong, it is our own karma to pay. It can’t be passed on to us.

Having said that, and going back to the topic, cursing for somebody to be punished or suffer using the name of Buddha or Bodhisattva will only create negative karma on the person who wishes it!
