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.

What to Do If You Absolutely Have to Had A Medical Procedure this Hungry Ghost Month?

Published Agosto 19, 2015 by jptan2012

medical procedureSometimes medical procedure is an avoidable happening. There are times that one can’t avoid a medical procedure because delaying it might cause more physical harm. So what does one have to do if there is an avoidable medical procedure that one has to go through this Hungry Ghost Month?

If it’s a minor medical procedure, you can light incense on your altar or go to a temple to do this and say a short prayer for all the Hungry Ghosts followed by a short prayer of protection. Make sure you have a Chung Kwei, a Vajrapani Ruel or a Surangama Mantra Amulet. Then while they’re doing the procedure, quietly chant either the Kalachakra Manta (OM AH HUM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT) or the mantra of Vajrapani Bodhisattva (OM VAJRAPANI HUM). Just continue to chant it until the procedure is over.

This is a rare black jade pendant image of Chung Kwei. Was fortunate enough to find one in Beijing, China in a small shop.  Remember in choosing a Chong Kwei or Chung Kwei or Zhung Kwei or Zhong Kwei, always get a something that's made of a black stone or gold. Otherwise, it might not be very effective.

For major medical procedure, I suggest go to a Buddhist temple and request them to do an Ullambana Ceremony (will discuss about this more on my succeeding posts), or request a Feng Shui practitioner who is familiar with the Ullambana Sutra to do it for you. Both will require some ‘fees’ because there are items that need to be bought for the said ceremony. The one done in a Buddhist temple is preferred but one that is done by a Buddhist Feng Shui practitioner will be effective as well, as long as he or she is familiar with the Ullambana Sutra and ceremony. Dedicate the ceremony to the ‘spiritual land lords’ of the hospital where the medical procedure is going to take place. On the day of the medical procedure, light some incense, and when you reach the hospital, discreetly scatter some rock salt or sea salt or pink Himalayan salt. Doctors or hospitals will not allow you to have any amulet on your body, so I suggest that you talk to your doctor beforehand and request that a Vajrapani Ruel or a Surangama Mantra Amulet be put at the door of the operating room, as the case may be. If you talk to them and tell them it is because of your religious belief that you are doing this, they will agree to do it. If not, ask a relative or a friend to carry it for you, and he should be as near as possible where the actual procedure is happening.Surangama Mantra

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It's important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless.

Note that for this, I prefer that you use the Vajrapani Ruel or the Surangama Mantra Amulet, because both amulets provide a larger protective aura.

But again postpone any medical procedure this Hungry Ghost Month if you can.
