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!

Don’t Know Your Bazi? Just Create a Positive Personal Energy!

Published Disyembre 3, 2013 by jptan2012

I do get a lot of request asking me to read their Bazi or Paht Chee. A big chunk of the request is because of the fact that they want to have positive energy or good luck. I believe that knowing one’s bazi is important to create a good personal Feng Shui. However, bazi analysis does take time and I, most of the time, no longer accept bazi or paht chee analysis requests because it is a tedious and time-consuming process. For some, it can be really expensive. Nevertheless, not knowing one’s bazi should not be a hindrance to good Feng Shui.

One of the basic principles of having good Feng Shui is to create good personal energy. Surrounding yourself with good personal energy or positive energy is an easy process. Just follow some of the tips below.

USE A PRAYER WHEEL

I’ve written about prayer wheels before, but I would like to reiterate that a prayer wheel is one powerful tool to create a positive or good personal energy. You can use a handheld one or better yet get a prayer wheel pendant so that you can wear it as a charm or jewelry and use it every time you feel down or feel that you’ve been in a place with negative energy or chi.

To understand more about prayer wheels read my post entitled – THE POWER OF A PRAYER WHEEL.

I personally have a hand held, table top, and pendant Prayer Wheel. A Prayer Wheel has a very good calming effect.

CHANT A MANTRA

Chanting a mantra creates a lot of positive energy. Mantras are believed to be magical words given to us by the Buddhas. Again, I’ve written about this and you can read my post entitled – MANTRA: THE INSTRUMENT TO TAP SYMBOLIC SOUND, SCRIPT, AND THOUGHT – to know more about it.

For the purpose of creating good or positive personal energy you can recite the following mantras:

  1. The mantra of Avalokitesvara also known as The Mantra of the Compassionate Buddha – OM MANI PADME HUM.
  2. The Mantra of Medicine Buddha – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA.
  3. The Immediate Light Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra – OM AH HUM.
  4. The Wish Fulfilling and the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra – OM PADMO USHNISHA VIMALE HUM PHAT / OM HANU PHASA BHARA HE YE SOHA

Ideally, these mantras should be recited one full mala a day.

WEAR A PENDANT THAT HAS THE SYMBOLIC SCRIPT THE MANTRAS OR IMAGES OF A BUDDHA OR BODHISATTVA

Wearing a jewelry that has the symbolic script of the mantras or images of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas, especially if this is made of gold or precious or semi – precious stones like a jade, is also a powerful tool to create a positive personal energy or good energy. I really believe in this that it prompted me to design the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT for myself for my family. The pendant has since then become a vehicle of numerous blessings to a lot of my readers.

The pendant has the image of the Medicine Buddha, the symbolic script of the Immediate Light Negative Karma Cleaning Mantra – OM AH HUM, and the Wish Fulfilling and the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra.

Wearing the pendant, because it has the mantras and images, becomes an aura or chi cleanser.

HELP OTHER PEOPLE AND DO THIS WITH SINCERITY

Helping other people such as giving to charitable institutions is one way of creating a good personal energy, however, this should be done with sincerity. Doing this just because you want to create a positive personal energy doesn’t count. The one that works here is the law of karma.

READ, CHANT, COPY OR CARRY A SUTRA

A sutra is usually a story about a Buddha or about a Buddhist teaching. It is believe that simply having a sutra becomes a blessing. You can read or chant or copy or carry a sutra to help create a positive or good personal energy. But why just stop at reading it or chanting it, copy and carry a sutra to help create more positive personal energy.

These are just some of the of the ways to create a good or positive personal energy. Can think of somebody else that you can share?

This is from my personal collection. The reason I love this pendants so much is because it has a inscription of the Heart Sutra at the back. I wear the smaller one everyday.

This is a miniature version of the Sutra of the Medicine Buddha and the Heart of Prajna Paramita Sutra which is a sutra closely associated with Kuan Yin. There are a lot of this kind of sutras that printed really small so one can carry it as an amulet.
