A Mother Improved the Life of Her Family and Helped Found A Suitabel Husband for Her Daughter with the Help of Feng Shui and the Surangama Mantra Amulet!

Published Mayo 5, 2016 by jptan2012

In one of my recent trips, while I was eating a vegetarian lunch, a Chinese woman who just came in the restaurant looked at me and excitedly approached me. When she got to our table, she hugs me and said it’s so nice to see you again! And while this is happening I’m trying to rack my brain to remember whom this old lady is. I’m just thankful that just before she stops hugging I suddenly remembered who she is. She is a woman I met sometime ago in a temple in China.

Huang Ai Chin is a woman I met several years back. 11 years ago in China to be exact. I was on an extended vacation because I am undergoing an initiation in a Pure Land Buddhist Temple there, and as part of the initiation I was required to go to the said temple everyday. Huang Ai Chin or Huang A-ē (or Auntie Huang – Huang is her family name) as I fondly call her is a mother of 2 children, a son and a daughter.

Eleven years can really change a person a lot in terms of look. At that time I met Huang A-ē, her hair was really long and she loves to wear the pajama like dress that seems to be ubiquitous in China at that time. She now has short hair, she has significantly gained some weight, compared to a very thin woman 11 years ago and her clothes now are quite modern. These changes are the primary reason why I didn’t recognize her right away. Huang A-ē did say that I hadn’t change much except for some white hair I fairly still look the same according to her.

Huang A-ē, when I met her the temple in China was problematic about her life and that of the life of her children. According to her, life has been quite difficult and while his son who is married works hard for her, for his wife and son, and sister, money seems to be quite elusive. It comes in but also goes out easily. I was quiet and never shared with anybody at the temple that I studied Feng Shui and have been some sort of a reluctant Feng Shui consultant for friends, families and relatives. But my cousin who lives in China is a friend of Huang A-ē’s nephew and she told her that I know Feng Shui. So reluctantly I agreed to look at Huang A-ē’s home.

As it turns out there are only 2 main concerns in Huang A-ē’s house. First, their official front door, which is Feng Shui compliant, is not being used. They are using a side door instead so in time, as most of my readers know in Feng Shui what you normally use becomes the default front door, this became their front door. Thus the front door has become significantly smaller than their back door. This is a big Feng Shui boo-boo.

Furthermore, Huang A-ē is occupying the room in their house that attracts the biggest wealth energy, and her son and his wife occupies a room at the other end of the hall. This may have been really good when Huang A-ē’s husband was still alive and is the head of the family and is the main income generating person of the house. However, Huang A-ē doesn’t work, and all her properties have already been transferred to her children, thus the room has become useless. Suggested to her that she move to her son’s room and her son and daughter – in – law move in to her room. She was initially apprehensive in doing this because it’s the biggest room, but I told her to simply give it a try and just change room again if it didn’t work out.

Huang A-ē still has another concern. She has another daughter, and that time she was already 30 years old. Which she is already very late for Chinese woman to marry a decent man. And believe me this is a big problem for Chinese families. When I check her room, I suggested changing the color of the room and put a Double Happiness symbol. I also told her to get a Surangama Mantra Amulet for her daughter at the temple. Note this is the same temple that released the Surangama Mantra Amulet that is now available in this blog. At that time the Abbott of the said temple is different, and the new Abbott has wanted to make it available now to a wider range of people to have more people benefit from it.getting married

About two weeks after I made my recommendations to Huang A-ē, I flew back to Manila, and although I saw her again in the temple before my flight, it was a short time to know whether my recommendations worked. I didn’t hear from her again.

I never heard from her again until we bump into each other in a different country! She said she has been wanting to get in touch with me, but since my cousin passed away a few months after I left China, there was no way for her to get in touch with me. She said their life started to change after we did the Feng Shui cure in her house. She said her son’s business prospered and they have a little more than enough in terms of money. I think she is being modest, well that is judging from her clothes and jewelries that she wears. But what she is really excited about is when she introduced to me her grandsons from her daughter! The boys are now 9 years old and 7 years old. She said her daughter was able to find a good boyfriend two months after she did the cure and wore the Surangama Mantra Amulet, and then they got married a year after. According to Huang A-ē she fully believes that it is the Feng Shui adjustments and the Surangama Mantra Amulet that help solve her problems!

Sutra & Mantra Retreat and Vajrapani Empowerment Ritual!

Published Nobyembre 4, 2015 by jptan2012

I have always believe in the power of chanting mantras and reciting / reading sutras. When people get in touch with me asking for the Vajrapani Ruel and because they can’t afford it or its not available at the time of request, I always tell them to chant some mantras or recite some sutras because these are very powerful tools or rituals that can help us surpass our problems. In fact, regular readers of this blog will see some personal testimonies of readers who simply chanted some mantras and were able to get their wishes.

That is why I’m very happy to announce that my Guru Lama is coming to the Philippines early next year to do a two – day Sutra and Mantra retreat and one day Vajrapani Empowerment Ritual. What’s even better is that the retreat and the Vajrapani Empowerment Ritual are going to be absolutely free!

I can’t clearly express as to what are the benefits of chanting a mantra and reciting a sutra because the wonderful blessings that one can get from them if properly done is simply enormous. It has the power to heal the sick, turn bad luck into good luck, create some wealth and financial luck. If these things are done for our recently departed relatives, it may give them a chance to be reborn with a good life.

The Sutra and Mantra retreat is going to be for 2 days from 6:30AM to 2:30AM straight! It seems quite tiring, but the truth is it’s not and if one is in the middle of it you’ll feel that 8 hours is simply nothing. Nevertheless, we’ll have 5 minutes bathroom break every hour or every hour ninety minutes, depending on the mantra and sutra being chanted or recited. On the first two days, which is the Sutra and Mantra retreat, we will be chanting and reciting different mantras and sutra for 8 hours each day straight! Well…almost straight!

On the third day, my Guru Lama is going to conduct a Vajrapani Empowerment Ritual or Puja.

What is an empowerment ritual or puja?

An empowerment ritual or puja is a ritual that is headed by a certified Lama that invokes the power of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity. This is to request blessings and protection from the Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity being invocated. This kind of ritual is rarely done in the Philippines and one needs a highly ordained monk or lama to be able to do this. For this particular empowerment ritual, we are invocating Vajrapani Bodhisattva, to get to know more about Vajrapani Bodhisattva please read my post called – THE WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL AMULET IN THE BUDDHIST PANTHEON CALLED VAJRAPANI RUEL.

Vajrapani Bodhisattva is primarily a protective bodhisattva but as you see in the various testimonials of people who has requested for the Vajrapani Ruel, a lot of these involve other things which is other than simply protection. For you to know more about these miracles you read some of the stories you can find below.

I will announce the exact date and time and location of the Sutra and Mantra Retreat and the Vajrapani Empowerment Ritual once we have finalized the details but this is confirmed and will happen soon after Chinese New Year of 2016.

As mentioned these events are absolutely free of charge. A reader who has experienced a Vajrapani Ruel miracle has committed to sponsor the vegetarian lunch (although it is going to be served after the retreat which is after 2:30pm). The vegetarian lunch is going to be cooked by Buddhist nun and volunteers of the host temple. Please note that although this is free we encourage you to bring some fruits as an offering to the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. We will also encourage you to give a Sangha Offering, which is customary for every Buddhist ritual. A Sangha Offering is done by giving you a red envelope and you can put any amount inside the envelope, which you will then offer on the altar. The money inside can be as low as twenty – five centavos and nobody will know the amount that you will put because it will be then passed on to the host temple without being opened. We do this because the host temple will have some expenses by hosting us that goes to electricity, water, incense, and manpower.

As early as now I will also like to say that during these events no late comers will be allowed to join, and we will start promptly using the Philippine Standard Time as our official time. Should you feel that the even is taxing and tedious we suggest you leave during one of the bathroom breaks, but once you leave you will not be allowed to enter again. This is because in events like this we have to be very conscious that you don’t disturb the presiding lama and the participant. Phones are also going to be collected for safekeeping. No phones and/or any gadgets are allowed inside the ceremony hall to preserve the solemnity of the hall and the retreat or ritual.

I’m sure a lot of you will be asking as to what are the Sutras and Mantras that we are going to recite and chant. Please see the list below in no particular order.

Myth Buster 26: Pregnant Women Should Bathe In The Afternoon To Prevent Evil Spirit From Causing Harm To The Baby!

Published Hunyo 21, 2015 by jptan2012

Pregnant womanWell, technically this is not a myth but neither it is connected to evil spirits. It is true that in the olden days before the invention of air conditioner, pregnant women are regularly advised to bathe in the afternoon. Why?

Because the temperature is usually warmest after lunch, and the heat might further elevate the already elevated body temperature of the pregnant woman, and this might cause hypertension or heat stroke that might affect the baby or the mother.
