A Different Kind of Haunting!

Published Marso 16, 2017 by jptan2012

Generally speaking, an average person is definitely afraid of a living in a haunted place. Who wouldn’t be? It is definitely scary to see doors or cabinets opening or closing by themselves, or showers opening on its own, or toilets flushing on its own. Furthermore, you wouldn’t want lights turning on and off by themselves, or worst, you hearing moaning, crying, or laughing. To top it off, most us won’t be able to bear to see spirits or hungry ghosts. I think it would be such a frightful experience to wake up and see a lady or a being at the foot of your bed staring at you. These are quite frightening experiences.

However, what is even more frightening if we come across with a sinister insidious spirit. And what’s even scarier is that this is more common that most people realize.

My Guru Lama and I are currently in the process of helping a guy get rid of an insidious sinister spirit, not only in his house but also in his village. This is perhaps one of the scariest incidents brought to my attention. However, since this is still a ‘work in progress’ I will not tell you about it now.

But as I said this more common that we realized and today allow me to share with you the story of Camala.

Camala is a 34 – years – old housewife with three children. Two boys who are twins and who at the time when this happened was 13 years – old and a daughter who when this happened was only 10 – years – old. Camala is married to David who at the time that this happened was 40 – years – old. He is 6 years older than Camala.

Camala and David used to live with David’s parents, until one time, Camala’s cousin to sell their house. When Camala found out about this, she was naturally interested to get it since she and David was already planning to get their own house and they have already saved enough money to get their own house. The fact that her cousin’s place was near David’s parent house and her parent’s house and the school of her children was a bonus because he still want to be near both their parent’s (Camala’s parent and David’s parents) not only because they can help look after their children, but also because both she and David can also look after their parents.

There is only one problem. Camala’s mother opposes the idea of Camala and David buying the house of Camala’s cousin from her father side. The mother believes that it is not a good house because she believes that it was a problematic house because when Camala’s aunt and uncle moved into that house, they separated, the kids (Camala’s cousins) started fighting with each other. In the end, one of them died of a drug overdose, one went to jail because of homicide, and the two remaining one are not talking to each other because of a fight about inheritance. Note that all these happened gradually in the span of several years.

However, Camala is not superstitious and doesn’t believe in bad luck. And so she bought the house and invited a famous commercial Feng Shui expert to Feng Shui their house to appease her mother, and she literally followed everything the Feng Shui suggested. And so soon her whole family moved into the house. David’s mother also requested their long time house help to move and serve Camala’s family so Camala will not have a hard time. Everything is, as Camala and David want it to be.

Soon, even Camala’s mother started to believe that there is nothing to her initial fears that the house is bad luck, because everything seems to be fine. The gradually, the twins start to fight a lot, with their younger sister taking the side of one of the twin. They attributed this to the fact that they’re growing children.

Then the house help who have been serving David’s family for a long time started to show an aggression towards the Camala’s family. She ended up stealing some of Camala’s money and jewelries and ran away. She has been serving David’s family for more than 15 years! This naturally came as a total surprise to their family and as a great shock. More than that they were really emotionally hurt for they treated her as a member of the family. In fact, Camala’s children call her Lola (Grandma).

Then Camala started becoming paranoid, this was all gradual and didn’t happen overnight. She started accusing all the other house help of stealing things and poisoning her family. Then Camala and her mother – in – law who usually goes to their house to help oversee the kids had a big fight! They never had a fight in all the years they were leaving together!

Camala’s husband started to stay out late, and there are times that he would even go out of town with his friends on weekend while he used to love to stay at home with his family. At one point he said that it seems like the people in the house doesn’t like him, and that he feels unwelcome in his own home. Naturally this took a strain in their relationship not only as the husband of Camala, but also as the father of their kids.

The breaking point is when the twins had a big fight, and then in the course of the fight, which became physical they accidentally pushed the youngest down the stairs. She had to be hospitalized for a few days.

This is when Camala’s mother decided to get in touch with me thinking that the Feng Shui of the house is wrong. She said she is a regular reader of my blog.

And so after about a month of coordinating I finally got to see Camala’s place. There was some Feng Shui blunders but nothing that would explain the intensity of the things that they are experiencing. Looking at their Bazi Chart / Paht Chee Chart also shows no significant reason as to why they are experiencing what they are going through.

However, what I noticed is that while I was there, although I’m not psychic there is different sensation. A sadness, disturbed feeling that I can’t describe. I knew then that this is the case that I should bring to the attention of my Guru Lama.

Without taking the history of the house, my Guru Lama said that the house is haunted by negative entities that manifest their hauntings in a more sinister and insidious way. The people of that house won’t see the spirits or feel them in a way one normally feels the spirits, but instead they have a way of affecting in a negative way the mental and physical health of a person. They become negative people and they have negative personalities!

So how do we exorcise or deal with this kind of haunting? How do we get rid of the spirits?

Guru Lama clarified that the curing will not be easy, but he suggested a Vajrapani Ruel(1), a Surangama Mantra Amulet(1) and Traditional Sutra Amulet(1), plus a special amulet to be placed in the house. At that time the Traditional Sutra Amulet(2) was not yet readily available and so Guru Lama had to specially source a copy for Camala.

That was in 2014. Now Camala and David are back to their good life, maybe even better, before they experience the different kind of haunting, a sinister and insidious type of haunting.

Chant – A – Mantra 8: Creating An Auric Amulet (1000 Days of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva Mantra for a Good Prosperous Life and Ultimate Protection)

Published Nobyembre 29, 2016 by jptan2012

One of the most common question people ask me is whether we all really need an amulet. What if we don’t have one does that mean success and luck and protection is going to be more elusive?

The answer to this is that amulets are simply but tools for us to continuously tap into the energies or blessings or power of the Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity to which an amulet is made from. And it is an effective means of tapping into said power. In fact, His Holiness the  Dalai Lama when escaping the Chinese oppression and flee Tibet to India is said to have carried a powerful amulet and a Kalachakra with him. The current and acknowledged 17th Karmapa is said to have a Vajrapani Ruel with him, also another Tibetan Monk who was sent to hard labor and was considered as a political prisoner was also believed to have been given a Vajrapani Ruel to pave the way for his release. You can read the last two stories in a post entitled – VAJRAPANI RUEL STORIES: THE 17TH KARMAPA’S RELATIVELY EASY ESCAPE; THE MIRACULOUS RELEASE OF A TIBETAN MONK FROM CHINESE PRISON AND LABOR CAMP; AND THE WEALTH LUCK BESTOWED UPON THE PRODIGAL SON. So we cannot deny the importance and relevance of carrying or wearing an amulet. However, the truth is the best amulets are those that are aurically created. Something that is not physically tangible but is strong enough to give us physical and psychically protect us and also gives us some of our heart’s wishes.

KsitigarbhaThere are many ways to ‘make’ such an amulet, however, it takes times and some are quite difficult to create and requires a very strong inner chi and deep knowledge of the spiritual esoteric practices or rituals.

Nevertheless, on THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA (Earth Store Bodhisattva is also known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) Shakyamuni Buddha (also spelled as Sakyamuni Buddha and also called as Historical Buddha) shared with us one way to make auric amulet. An amulet that is not physically tangible. It does take time to make an amulet but according to my Guru Lama it is one of the most powerful amulet one can have. In fact, according to my Guru Lama when done properly one can also experience an abundance of wealth and financial luck as well as happy life. He is not taking this simply base on the said sutra, but rather he has recommended this to a Singaporean vendor several years ago and who after doing this went to become a very successful and rich businessman.

How to make this auric amulet?

First, it will be easier to do this is you have an image of Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha OR A copy of THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA. Light an incense and chant mantra NAMO DA YUAN DI ZHANG WANG PU SA 1000 times a day for 1000 days (which is a little more than 3 years). By doing this, Lord Brahma and Lord Shakra, will always protect you and no harm will come to you and your family, on top of that they will be channel of auspicious blessings that will come your way.

earth-store-bodhisattva-sutra-traditional

This is a copy of the traditional SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA that my Guru Lama sent me.

NOTE: It has to be the mantra NAMO DA YUAN DI ZHANG WANG PU SA and not the other forms of mantra for this ritual to be effective.

Note: Will write about Lord Brahma and Lord Shakra in future articles.

I know it’s quite long but technically speaking it is not long for something so powerful. According to my Guru Lama doing this will give you an auric amulet that may even be more powerful than the Vajrapani Ruel. And the Vajrapani Ruel is considered as one of the most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon, in fact, a lot of those who requested for it has shared their wonderful personal testimonies.

Remember this has to be done everyday; you miss a day you have to start all over again.

To avoid confusion, you can simply chant 10 full malas, which is equivalent to 1080 a day. My Guru Lama said chanting more than 1000 of the Earth Store Bodhisattva mantra is fine as long as it is not less than 1000 a day.

To know more about Ksitigarbha Bodhisatta / Earth Store Bodhisattva you read the post written about him entitled – Ksitigarbha Buddha is a Bodhisattva Who Vowed to Help Those Who Suffer in This World and In Hell.

The Buddhist Neighbor

Published Oktubre 17, 2016 by jptan2012

I’m really quite happy that I received the traditional copy of THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA (also called known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) and THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA just when we are settling to our new home. As I have said these traditional sutra amulets provides protection but more than that they also provide wonderful blessings. I have been looking and aspiring to get such sutras to be place in our house or even in my room. However, even if it is quite common for temples to have them, they are not for sale, neither it is regularly given to the temple goers. Furthermore, while they are in itself carries with it some power; it will be better to get one that was consecrated by a qualified lama or monk. Not all monks are qualified to consecrate a sutra amulet.

sutra-amulets

These are just one copy each of the very limited copies sent to me by my Guru Lama of the THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA, THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA. Sutras are also used as very powerful amulets, that is why you will often old Buddhist Chinese houses has a copy of the Sutra on their altar though they might not be reciting the sutra itself.

But what I want to share now is that when we first moved to our new home, and although we got all the most auspicious omens which I have written about a few posts ago, we sometimes still can’t help but miss our old home. We have been living in our old home since 1980, and moving to new home, even one we have grown to love right away still makes us feel a little ‘homesick’. I think one of the reasons for this; we practically don’t know any of our neighbors. My mom who is not in her 70’s had to make new friends in our neighborhood and it would be quite difficult, especially when we never had any other neighbors than Chinese and pure Filipino, but now some of our neighbors are Spanish mestizo or mestizo.

These are just one copy each of the very limited copies sent to me by my Guru Lama of the THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA, THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA. Sutras are also used as very powerful amulets, that is why you will often old Buddhist Chinese houses has a copy of the Sutra on their altar though they might not be reciting the sutra itself.

One other reason is that there is no Buddhist temple that is near our place. I think the nearest is about 45 minutes away. Unlike before where it was only 8 minutes away, on top of that, we’ve designed our house to include a big image of a Bodhisattva Kuan Yin (also called or spelled as Avalokitesvara, Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kannon, Cannon) on our small and humble front lawn, and the image of Guan Yin Bodhisattva can be seen outside. Several times when we light incense or made offerings in that particular image of Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, I noticed some car slowing down or there are a few who really can’t resist but to stare. From what I know there are very few Filipino – Chinese in our new subdivision and I really haven’t seen any of them. And maybe there would be even fewer Buddhist, and we were informed by the person who sold us the property that the subdivision is predominantly Catholic.

About a week since we moved in to our new home, neighbors started introducing themselves, and our image of Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva on our small and humble front lawn became the main focus of these conversations. My mom told me that she felt awkward explaining to our new neighbors as to why do we make offerings in front of the image. However, I think this seems to be an indication that they are genuinely interested in what we do and told my mom that she can use this as an opportunity to talk about Buddhism. But she clearly pointed out to me that she doesn’t have the passion of talking about her faith to people.

Anyway, when I received the traditional copies of the sutra amulets, and my Guru Lama said I and my family can have one each of THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA and THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA (also called THE VAJRA CUTTER PERFECTION OF WISDOM SUTRA or THE VAJRA SUTRA or THE VAJRA CUTTER SUTRA or THE DIAMOND SUTRA), and so as I said I was really happy to place them on the altar. It is customary that each member of the family to have one wish each as you put the sutras on the altar (we got two wishes each because there are two sutras), my youngest nephews all of a sudden uttered that his only wish is for his grandmother (my mother) to meet a Buddhist neighbor so that his grandmother won’t feel like she’s an alien.

Guess what? The next day, one of our neighbors (well they’re from two streets away) rang our bell and welcomed us with a pot of a vegetarian dish. They are a couple around 60 something. The wife is a Filipina and the husband is Irish, and they both happen to be practicing Buddhist for more than 20 years already! They said they’re happy that have a Buddhist neighbor. I wasn’t there at that time, but my mom said that she told them that she was happy to finally have met a Buddhist neighbor!

Chant – A – Mantra (1): A Reintroduction to the Wonderful Benefit of Chanting A Mantra!

Published Hulyo 5, 2016 by jptan2012

Today, I would like to start a new series about chanting mantras. I felt this is an important topic / series to write because a lot of my readers are hooked with getting amulets. I know that the Vajrapani Ruel enjoys a certain amount of popularity amongst my readers and it has garnered a lot of o personal testimonies attesting to its miraculous power and effectiveness. However, the sad truth is that the Vajrapani Ruel is quite pricey for a lot of people, and more than that it is also relatively quite limited in the sense that it is not forever that we can have it. Not to mention the difficulty in making it and smuggling it out of Tibet, which is under the Mainland Chinese (China) rule that doesn’t allow it to be made or be brought out. So if you have the Vajrapani Ruel, consider yourself to be very lucky.

But as I said, sometimes we are very caught up to having the Vajrapani Ruel that if can’t have it we sort of go into some sort of despair. That shouldn’t be the attitude because the truth is the Buddha Himself has given us enough tools to assist us in our daily life. We have the sutras and at the same times we have the mantras.

It was several years back since I first introduced the power of mantras to my readers, and I will not write about it again. If you are a new reader and is not familiar with the power of mantras, I suggest you revisit my old post about it entitled – MANTRA: THE INSTURMENT TO TAP THE POWER OF SYMBOLIC SOUND, SCRIPT, AND THOUGHT – to know more about it.

But what I would like to reiterate today is that chanting mantras, again like reciting the sutras, should be done comfortably loud. That is because of the same reasons that I have discussed in RECITE A SUTRA 6: WHY DO WE HAVE TO LOUDLY RECITE SUTRAS? However, more that the reason discussed in the preceding post, reciting it loudly also helps us get attuned with the Buddha or Bodhisattva whose mantra we are chanting.

Whenever we chant a mantra, it is like an offering to the Buddha or Bodhisattva whose mantra we are chanting, but at the same time it is also like a call for help and establishing a link or a ‘relationship’ with them.

mala

In chanting a mantra, it is best to be use a mala so that you can keep track of the number of times you’ve chanted a mantra.

Chanting a mantra can make wonders, and this blog has been testament to what are the powers of chanting a mantra can do. But now that I’m actively writing about it again, I hope to show you more of these wonderful miracles that simply chanting a mantra can do.

A lot of people are concern about properly pronouncing the mantra. I always say that they shouldn’t sweat it that much. Right pronunciation is important but it will come to you sooner or later, what is more important is the sincere heart in chanting the mantras. I suggest that you read the post entitled – A HERMIT AND A MONK: A LESSON IN RECITING YOUR MANTRA! – as to what Lama Zopa Rinpoche has to say about pronunciation of the mantras.

But what are the benefits of chanting a mantra:

  1. Protection.
  2. Wealth, financial, money blessings.
  3. Good health.
  4. Family luck and/or relationship luck.
  5. Happiness.
  6. Peace.
  7. Miracles will happen more frequently.

I also decided to write this series because the previous mantras that I have shared before are anchored on the Buddha or Bodhisattva, which is really the proper way to present a mantra. However, having a predominantly Christian reader, I felt this approach is not very effective in making you understand it. So I will present the mantras on a per need basis. And whenever possible I will still present stories, real personal testimonies of either readers or friends or families who have used the mantra. I will also present combination mantras for more effective and swifter results.

One last thing, simply chanting a mantra will have an effect, but remember, chanting it under deep meditative state give you the ultimate effectiveness.

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.

How Dedication to Medicine Buddha Compliments Modern Medicine and a Lesson in Humility

Published Abril 9, 2014 by jptan2012

I’m the type of person who hates seeing a doctor, and so whenever I feel sick I will just add several rounds of the Medicine Buddha mantra in my daily mantras for whatever I’m feeling. It always works for me and it’s a lot less expense for me for medicines and doctor fees. This is not blind faith for me, I firmly believe in the power of the mantras and of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. In fact, a few years back, when I was told I have diabetes, I decided to cut down on my sugar and decided to treat myself with ‘temple’ water powered by the mantras of Medicine Buddha and Avalokitesvara (aka Kuan Yin)! To put it simply, its either doctors were wrongs, or I simply cured myself of diabetes.

On another occasions, I used to have really bad allergy, it can get so bad that I have to be rush to the hospital because I was unable to breathe because my air passage will close down. I also used to have vertigo, and the doctors told me that I would always have it. After doing my mantras and energizing my room with Feng Shui charms to enhance my health, I now no longer suffer from allergies and it’s been long time since I suffered from vertigo. In fact, it was so long that I don’t remember when was the last time had vertigo.

However, this had lead me to believe that I don’t really need to see a doctor anymore. When I first experience numbness on my wrist, I ignored it. Soon the numbness started having pain, still I ignored it and refused to see a doctor but started doing my mantras, then the pain started getting really bad to the point that I’m no longer able to lift a pitcher of water. That’s when I decided to see a doctor. My purpose is to understand what’s happening to help visualize my healing when I say Medicine Buddha mantra. The initial diagnosis is that I have a cyst, and an inflamed vein. The recommendation is for me to have surgery. I don’t want to undergo surgery so I decided to have a second consultation, the diagnosis is the same, and the third doctor said the same thing. I decided to ignore them and just do my Medicine Buddha mantra and acupuncture. It seems to work a little, but it soon became apparent that I’m not getting any better. It has become so bad that I’m no longer able to lift a pen to write or simply sign a check.

 

I tried acupuncture to avoid undergoing surgery. I initially thought that it was working, but all acupuncture is able to provide is temporary pain relief. However, it is possible that I really have to understand and learn the importance of modern medicine that fate determined that acupuncture will not work for me this time. I have a lot of relatives who do swear by the fact that acupuncture works!

However, it is possible that I really have to understand and learn the importance of modern medicine that fate determined that acupuncture will not work for me this time. I have a lot of relatives who do swear by the fact that acupuncture works!

I then called my Guru Lama and consulted him how come my WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA pendant and my recitations of the Medicine Buddha mantra and my ‘temple water’ doesn’t seem to be working for me. I was surprised with my Guru Lama’s reply. He said, I could be harboring so much pride in thinking that I can do self – healing by using just the mantras. I argued that it has always worked for me. My Guru Lama said it will work if the approach is that of extreme humility, however, he said I might have started harboring an idea that I can be bigger than science because I’m familiar with Feng Shui and the mantras. In hindsight, that is what exactly happened. I’ve started to believe that I no longer need a doctor. Albeit it was a subconscious thought, it was still there. My Guru Lama then suggested that I still chant the Medicine Buddha mantra with the intent that I should be shown on how to be healed. The difference is I’m seeking guidance, unlike before I just assume that what I think is what will work. My Guru Lama then reminded me that even the Dalai Lama believes that Science has something to contribute and offer to all mankind.

Medicine Buddha

Following my Guru Lama’s advice, I decided to chant the Medicine Buddha mantra with the intent of being guided how to approach my healing. Three days after chanting the Medicine Buddha mantra, I dreamt that I was healed already, and that before I got healed I continued to chant my mantra, drink my ‘temple water’ and place my WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT on my wrist after reciting the Medicine Buddha mantra. I was also showed the face of a friend; this friend is the daughter – in – law of the owner of one of the medical center and hospital along Quezon Avenue.

The following day, I decided to do what I dreamt off and I also called my friend. I have always consulted an orthopedic doctor, but she suggested that I should instead consult a rehab doctor and she recommended somebody. I went to see the said doctor and was told that I have tendonitis, and all it will take for me to be healed is a single injection of a certain medicine. Although, I was warned that it doesn’t always work and that if it didn’t work I will have to undergo therapy. There was no mention of surgery.

I silently said a series of Medicine Buddha mantra and blew on the syringe containing the medicine just before I was injected. The pain didn’t go right away, it took another week and several days more of drinking temple water, chanting the Medicine Buddha mantra, and placing of the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT on my wrist before I was completely healed.

The moral of the story here is that science, Feng Shui and religion, should compliment each other. Even the Dalai Lama has said that science has a lot to contribute in understanding Buddhism and other religions. Also, there is a reason why the practice of medicine is there. While I still believe that there are some illness that can be totally cured without the science of medicine just like there are illness that can be cured without the use of Feng Shui and Buddhism, in the end the two compliment each other. We should be able to harmoniously integrate both, and realized that even science itself is a tool given to us by the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.

Receive Wonderful Blessings of Wealth, Success, Peace and Protection from Two of the Most Powerful Buddhist Amulets (Part 3): Tap into the Power of The Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras and Lama Atisha Protection Amulet and Help Feed Buddhist Monk Initiates

Published Oktubre 2, 2013 by jptan2012

As I’ve written in the part one of this series of posts called THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET, I mentioned that I’ve been wanting to write about THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET, however, especially for THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS one will need a special permission from a Lama and that the writing should include a special higher purpose.

While I cannot go into details, I have passed the test and an oracle done by Lama I cans start writing about THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET, provided that I do it for a higher purpose.

My guru Lama wants to help Buddhist monks or novitiates to be able to have sufficient food and eat three meals a day. However, this is a task that proves to be very difficult to accomplish because there are a lot of monastery who lacks food, a lot of them are in India, especially these are Tibetans that went in exile in India. For example, in one monastery alone, like the Sera Je Monastery who has more than 2,500 monks.

My guru Lama thought that it will be nice to request people to donate funds in exchange of a blessed copies of THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET. For full transparency, please note that the said images are available online and can be downloaded for a small amount of donation for various projects. This is possible because it was the Lamas itself who gave the permission to put the images online so that people can download them for a small amount.

However, what was sent to me by my guru Lama is a blessed copy of the THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET. Again, for transparency, the image alone with being bless are already considered to be holy and effective. But, having blessed by a lama will make it more potent, and perhaps, this is just I, holier. Furthermore, my guru Lama also sent me some incense ash, and pink Himalayan salt, which was all, used in a mandala initiation. The instruction for me to do is to mix a little of all these to the THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET to make it more potent.

Although the instruction for me is to make these Buddhist amulets available to the public through my blog, there was no instruction as to how should I do this other than the instruction that I should include a little of the ash and salt.

The idea of raising some funds to further some Buddhist projects by coming up with holy objects and ‘selling’ them at a certain amount are no longer new. There are a lot of similar projects, and the famous Feng Shui Expert Lillian Too also did the same thing before. She made several prayers wheels which were made available to the public and which the proceeds were donated to a Buddhist cause. However, going back to how can I distribute the amulets with the ash and Pink Himalayan Salt without losing them pose a challenge. However, the inspiration again came from Lillian Too, when she had the special Kalachakra pendant with the Kalachakra sand from a Kalachakra initiation lead by the 14th Dalai Lama. With a reader’s help I went to THE BEAD SHOP, bought a small test tube – like small bottle. Realized that it was the almost perfect holder for THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS with the ash and salt. Ideally, I would have wanted it to be put inside a metal amulet holder, but it is far more expensive. So this for now will do.

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.

What is initially available at the moment is THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS, and it would be available for Philippine peso – Php 2,250.00. I know criticism bells are alarming as to why I’m stipulating an amount for the donation.

But let me explain it.

To feed a monk, 3 meals a day for one month would cost US $10.00! Isn’t that surprising?! For Filipinos in the Philippines, approximately Php 425.00 will last for a month!

I thought why not feed 4 or 5 monks, 3 meals a day for a month! To make the computation easier I decided to just put it at a cost of Php 2,000.00. The additional P250.00 is because of the cost of the holder from THE BEAD SHOP. It actually cost Php 245.00 but I decided to just round it off. 100% of the ‘proceeds’ of this project will go to feed Buddhist monks. Receipts will be posted on this site from time to time. The money will be sent every two months, taxes will be bigger if it’s sent as they come in, and it is going to be tedious.

So what is a typical meal of a monk for a day?

Breakfast

1-2 pieces of large bread (10-12 inches in diameter and 1/2 inch thick)
Choice of Tibetan or Chai TeaBread and Tea

 Lunch

Tofu
Dahl
Rice or Bread
Vegetables
Fruit

Dahl ready to be offered (served) to the Monks.

Dinner

Rice and curried vegetables
or noodles and vegetables
or thukpa (Tibetan noodle soup)food

If you think it varies, it only varies from MWF and TThSS but basically weekly it’s the same thing. This shows how lucky most of us are.eat

If you wish to support the Buddhist monk and novitiates without getting the THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET available on this site, you can do so by directly donating through www.fpmt.org/projects/fpmt/seraje . Please note though that this is just one monastery, albeit the biggest one, that we are supporting through amulets available on this blog.

Lastly, if you wish to benefit from THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET without getting from this blog or donating to the food fund or want it to be more affordable, you can simply type THE FOUR DHARMKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and/or LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET and you will see links wherein you can download them. Again in the spirit of full disclosure and transparency, the ones that you can download on the web are effective but are not blessed by a Lama. A blessing adds to the potency of its power and the incense ash and Pink Himalayan salt from the mandala initiation will also add power to the amulet.

Also please note that initially what would be made available is THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS.
