A Quick Post About the Things to Avoid During the Hungry Ghost Month!

Published Agosto 28, 2017 by jptan2012

Some of these things I have written in the past, some maybe just now. But allow me to quickly share a few things that one should avoid doing during the Hungry Ghost Month (Ghost Month) especially the Hungry Ghost Festival (Ghost Festival) which for this 2017 is on September 5.

Things to avoid:

  1. Avoid disturbing around and under the altar because the hungry ghosts loves to dwell around those areas because they want the yang energy.
  2. Avoid disturbing the kitchen or dining area or even the market or anywhere where there is food. Hungry Ghosts crave for food and so they might be in those areas.
  3. Do not put new fish tanks or aquarium in your house, because this might enhance the yin energy that is already pervasive during the ghost month.
  4. Do not hand wind chimes. Contrary to popular Feng Shui belief, there are a number of non – commercialized, traditional Feng Shui masters and Feng Shui experts who doesn’t believe in the use of wind chimes because a wind chime attracts spirits. I also subscribe to this belief They attract both good and bad spirits, so how can you siphon the good from the bad?
  5. Do not leave red cloths or red strings lying around the house? Red has one of the strongest yang energy and hungry ghosts will naturally crave for them.
  6. Avoid whistling especially after dark. Same principle with the wind chime, they may get attracted with the sound and they might latch on to you.
  7. Avoid properly putting any footwear beside your bed, always turn the footwear away from the bed or turn one of them over. Properly placed footwear may attract spirits to you.
  8. Do not hang your clothes overnight. Hungry Ghosts are not just hungry, they also lack clothes, while they don’t need it, they might feel that they need one because they still long for their human body. Hanging it overnight might lead them to ‘try it’ and it will cause extreme bad luck or even some hauntings.
  9. Do not pick up money on the streets or on the floor if you don’t know who owns them. Even if they’re just coins. A spirit might have latched on to it already and you will bring them with you.
  10. Do not look back if you hear a ‘pssst’ or if you hear somebody calls you in an empty space or street.

I also received some emails and questions as to what one can do if one really has to undergo a medical procedure this ghost month. I have written about this before and you can check it out by clicking here. However, please note to try to avoid this and if this is not possible, for major operations, or for medical procedure, which may be considered routine but involves senior citizens or children below 7 years of age, it is best to have the Vajrapani Ruel and/or a gold Kalachakra pendant.

The Mantra of The White Umbrella Goddess

Published Mayo 20, 2012 by jptan2012

In my last post, I wrote about Ushnisha Sitataputra who is better known as the The White Umbrella Goddess. While, I highly revere Ushnisha Sitataputra I unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, don’t have a highly miraculous personal story that I can share about her. However, allow me to share the story of a Canadian Buddhist who I met in one of my trips in Legaspi, Albay.

B works for an international NGO, and she was assigned in one of the remote town in Albay. Because she was assigned in a remote town that has no internet she’ll have to travel to Legaspi City every Monday to be able to do her paper work and reports and email them to their regional head. She would usually stay at the volunteer’s house rented by their NGO for them. The house also functions as an office. In one of her overnight stay at the Volunteer’s House an accident happened. The Filipina that they hired to help them keep the place clean forgot to turn off the electric fan that she used in the kitchen, they’re not sure whether it overheated or there was short circuit but whatever happened it created fire. At that time B and four other volunteers where in the house, but B was sharing a room with another female volunteer from Singapore.

B and her roommate were woken by shouts and banging from their door. When her roommate opened the door, one of the other male volunteers was shouting, according to B she didn’t really hear what he was saying because she already saw what was happening, the thick smoke outside their room indicated that there was fire and it was already bad.

According to B the three male volunteers attempted to go down the stair s but is unable to do so because of the thick smoke. They went inside B’s room and attempted to break the window. But typical of Filipino houses they were actually ‘barred’ from going out through the window. Unable to break the window, they all went to the only other room occupied by the male volunteers, but again their efforts to break the window proved futile. They were all in panic and felt that they’re trapped. B said she unconsciously touched the The White Umbrella Goddess pendant she is wearing, and something prompted her to recite the short version of the mantra of Ushnisha Sitataputra, she said she’s not sure how many times she recited it but soon after reciting the mantra she remembered that there is a fire escape which is weirdly accessible through the window in the restroom. She called everybody and while everything was burned to ashes, B and her co-volunteers escaped unharmed. She firmly believes that it was The White Umbrella Goddess who saved them.

According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, one of the fastest ways to tap Ushnisha Sitataputra’s protection and/or blessing is to wear or have her image in your house and recite her mantra. The mantra of The White Umbrella Goddess is a mouthful but a very powerful one.

Allow me to share with you her mantra.

TADYATHA OM ANALE ANALE KHASAME KHASAME BHAYRE BHAYRE SAUMA SAUME SARVA BUDDHA ADISHTANA ADISHTITE SOHA OM SARVA TATHAGATHA USHINISHA SITATAPUTRA HUM PHAT HUM MAMA HUM NI SOHA

This is one of the mantras that I regularly recite, and although saying it 7 times a day, everyday, is powerful enough, I prefer reciting one full mala at least twice a week.

The short version of the mantra is HUM MAMA HUM NI SOHA. But it is advisable that you recite the full mantra three times before saying one full mala of the short version.

This pendant is similar to the one worn by B. My dream is to be able to design my own Ushnisha Sitataputra or The White Umbrella Goddess pendant. The ones that are available are made of plastic, like the one in the picture, or are made of cloth. They don’t last really long.

Furthermore, wearing an Ushnisha Sitataputra pendant will also ensure that you are constantly protected. Having an image of The White Umbrella Goddess at home, in your living room, will also ensure that your house is constantly protected.
