Some Basic Questions About the Hungry Ghosts and the Hungry Ghost Month Answered (3): What to Do When a Loved One or A Relative Dies on a Hungry Ghost Month?

Published Setyembre 6, 2017 by jptan2012

Death is always perceived as something negative. But the truth is sometimes death is actually good, because sometimes this means that a person can reincarnate into a better life.

However, if there is a death that one want’s to avoid is death in the evening and death during the Hungry Ghost Month. In this article we will solely talk about death during the Hungry Ghost Month.

First, if you are not familiar with what is Hungry Ghost Month, I suggest you read first the articles with links and titles found below this article.

Hungry Ghost Month is considered one of the worst seasons of the year, with its highlight on the day of the Hungry Ghost Festival, which is on the 15th day of the 7th lunar month. Hungry Ghost Month is the whole of the 7th lunar month. People are warned to take extra care and not take unnecessary trips and activities. One of the most important things that a Chinese takes caution of is going to the hospital or a funeral during this month.

I remember when I was young when a sister of my grandmother is really ill and her family was praying for her early demise out of compassion and pity so that she will not longer suffer. However, she lives on for a few months until during the Hungry Ghost Month there was sign that she was about expire. And so this time her family started praying that she live until after Hungry Ghost Month. This scene might be a little comical but if you are familiar how much negative energies goes around during Hungry Ghost Month you will understand why this is no laughing matter.

Buddhist and Taoist believes that when a person dies during Hungry Ghost Month this is surely a sign that this death was caused by the Hungry Ghost, with the exception of those who passed away between 5AM and 9AM, unless of course the cause of death is something that is tragic or sudden.

It is said that the consciousness (soul) of the newly dead is immediately pulled into the Hungry Ghost realm because there is a very big chance that the person’s dying process was hasten because ‘misery loves company’ and so the destitute Hungry Ghosts will try to pull a sick person’s soul so that they can have a surge of yang energy provided by the dying person.

Also when a death occurs on a Hungry Ghost Month, it usually means there are 2 more following that death, this 2 usually happens within a year of the death of the first one. And more often that not, the first death will also cause tremendous bad luck to the family.

So what to do if somebody dies within the Hungry Ghost Month?

  1. Go to a Buddhist temple and have a special puja done for the person for 49 days.
  2. Go vegetarian for 49 days.

 

If the above remedy is not possible, do the following instead:

  1. Get a Vajrapani Ruel and put it on the body or on the casket of the dead person all throughout the wake.
  2. Better to cremate the body.
  3. After the wake, get the Vajrapani Ruel and set – up a temporary altar for the person, and place a picture there and place the Vajrapani Ruel in front of the picture. Leave it there until the 49th day of the death of the person.
  4. Recite the The-Sutra-On-The-Original-Vows-And-Merits-Of-The-Medicine-Master-Lapis-Lazuli-Light-Tathagata and/or Sutra-of-the-Past-Vows-of-Earth-Store-Bodhisattva once a day for 49 days.
  5. Make offerings (flowers, oil, incense, water, fruits and vegetables, money) to an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva for 49 days.

Chant – A – Mantra (7) & Recite – A – Sutra (8): Additional Protection from the Double Illness Star and Double Wu Wang in the Northeast!

Published Nobyembre 4, 2016 by jptan2012

Any Feng Shui enthusiasts and Feng Shui students would have known by now that the month of November (starting on November 7, 2016 – December 6, 2016) a lot of us will have to be very careful and be ready for double negative energies brought about by the combination of the Annual Flying Stars and Monthly Flying Stars.

Note: To understand this post better you can read the first two posts about it. 1. Double Wu Wang Whammy for People Born in the Year of the Ox and Tiger this November. / 2. Is the Double Wu Wang in the Northeast this November Fatal?

First, the most dreadful star (#5 Flying Star / Wu Wang / Five Yellow Star / 5 – Yellow Star) is doubled in the Northeast this month, which means people born under the year of the Ox and Tiger, Middle Sons (regardless of age, regardless whether they are married or single and whether they still live with their parents or not), and people staying in the Northeast (bedroom, office or even if your house is in the Northeast of the village or subdivision) and people whose house or office door faces the Northeast are all affected by the Double Wu Wang. This is the most dreadful star in the Flying Star formula, and all Feng Shui experts or Feng Shui consultants caution us about this, and having it doubles this year in the Northeast brings tremendous stress to those who have to deal with it. Those who have to deal with it are the people I mentioned above.

But at the same time, the #2 Flying Star, which is known as the Illness Star, a star that causes not only grave illness but also serious accidents that may lead to long term illness or death is also doubled this month. We are all susceptible to this, but people who are affected by the Wu Wang, as mentioned above, are doubly affected. As a precaution, it is highly advisable for you to wear the Illness Suppression Amulet if you have it.

For those who are affected by the Double Wu Wang in the Northeast can wear the Vajrapani Ruel and a gold 5 – Element Pagoda (Five Element Pagoda) pendant, and a gold Kalachakra pendant. Carrying or surrounding yourself with Traditional Sutra Amulets like THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA or THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA or THE DIAMOND SUTRA will also greatly help and offer much protection.

In my earlier post about the same topic, I also said that this is the time for one to rely and have faith on prayers. For Catholics you can do your novenas or pray your rosary. For Christians and Muslims you can pray to your God and have faith in Him. For Taoist, you can ask special protection Fu from your Taoist priest. For Buddhist and those who would be willing to practice how Buddhist protect themselves now can do the following suggestions found below.

Go to the temple and light incense everyday.

Go to the temple and bow to the images of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas everyday.

Donate to the poor or who are in need with utmost sincerity.

Chant the following mantras (minimum) 108x a day everyday:

  • Mantra of Amitabha Buddha: OM AMI DEWA HRIH
  • Mantra of Medicine Buddha: TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA
  • Mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion Guan Yin: OM MANI PADME HUM
  • Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani: OM VAJRAPANI HUM
  • Mantra of Bodhisattva Cundi Avalokitesvara (Chundi Avalokitesvara): NAMO SAPTANAM SAMYAKSAM BUDDHA KOTINAM TADYATHA OM CALE CULE CUNDI SOHA
  • Mantra of the Protective Deity Kalachakra: OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT

You can also Recite the following Sutras as often as you can:

Is There A Feng Shui Relevance to All Souls Day?

Published Oktubre 31, 2016 by jptan2012

Ire, Loves Well, obviously the Chinese ‘All Souls Day’ or day of remembering the dead doesn’t happen in November 1, or to be more accurate about it on November 2. All Saints Day / All Souls Day is a big deal for a lot of Filipinos and perhaps Catholics in the world. But is there is Feng Shui significance or relevance to this special day?

For Chinese, especially those who are in the older generation, it is very important that we remember our ancestors or loved ones who passed away, this is taken as a sign of respect but at the same time, it is believed that we should not earn their ire by forgetting about them, or we should earn their approval so that they can help shower blessing upon the living. This is why remembering our loved ones or dead ancestors are important part of the life of a Chinese. In fact, a lot of us have images of our ancestors in our home, where we light incense and offer food on special occasions. The older generation will offer incense everyday. This may be a little too excessive.

In Buddhism, according to the Medicine Buddha Sutra, when a person dies his or her consciousness will undergo rebirth within 7 days or 21 days or 35 days or 49 days. I will clarify that it will go through rebirth on the first day, it will have to wait for 7 days, then if you didn’t go through rebirth on the 7th day then on the 21st day if not then it will be 35th day, until 49th day. If you don’t go through rebirth in the first 5 stipulated days, then you will sure go rebirth on the 49th day.

But rebirth doesn’t necessarily mean rebirth here on earth as human.

There are different levels of possible rebirth and starting from the bottom they are the following:

  1. Hell
  2. Hungry Ghost
  3. Animal Kingdom
  4. Human
  5. Asura
  6. Heavenly Beings
  7. Arhat
  8. Pratyekabuddha
  9. Bodhisattva
  10. Buddhahood

The first six are considered as the lower realms wherein the being still has an attachment and the last four are considered as the upper realm wherein the being or our consciousness no longer has any attachment. Once one is born in the upper realm, his or her consciousness no longer goes back to any of the lower realm.

It should be noted that for Catholics or Christianity, heaven is the ultimate goal, for Buddhism is a better place than the first five but it is still a place where in desire and attachment exist and one can still go down to the other realms. It is also not the most desired realm. I will talk about the 10 realms further in a future post.

I will also discuss the difference between Hungry Ghost and the Hell in another post.

But for now what I want to show is that for Buddhism, one can be born in different realms, until we reach Buddhahood.

So when a person dies, his consciousness or soul as Christians would call it will be born again in one of these realms. As humans 98% we will be born in either the realm of Hell or Hungry Ghost or Animal Kingdom or Human (again). If we have been good we might be born in the realm of an Asura or a Heavenly Beings.

This is where remembering and offering ‘good merits’ to our departed love ones or ancestors will become important. For example, your loved one or ancestor was born in the realm of the Hell or Animal Kingdom or Hungry Ghost, by offering good merits to them such as praying for them or chanting mantras or reciting sutras for them will shortened their suffering in the lower realms of Hell or Hungry Ghost or Animal Kingdom. On the other hand, if they were born in the realm of Human, by offering good merits to them their life will be better. If their current life is bad it will become better, if it is already good it will become even better. And if they were born as an Asura or Heavenly Beings then their life will even become better or they maybe pushed up to being born as Arhat or a Pratyekabuddha.

But this is the thing. Days like ‘All Souls Day’ are important because it forced us to remember them on these days. However, it certainly doesn’t mean that we should only remember them on this day. In fact, it is very important that we offer prayers or mantras or sutras or incense to them everyday. And by remembering them and offering merits to them everyday, we in turn make our life better. Because we are interconnected with each other. They may have a totally different life now but because of affinity with each other we are somewhat linked to each other. And if we send them merits, in a way we also get our own merits.

The Many Benefits of A Sutra: How A Sutra Is Also Used As An Amulet! (A Special Recite – A – Sutra Article)

Published Oktubre 13, 2016 by jptan2012

In my series, Recite – A – Sutra, I have talked about the different wonderful benefits or blessings one gets when one recites – a – sutra. By reciting these sutras loudly, one invokes the wonderful energies of the many Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, and because of this one receives a lot of wonderful blessings and good chi.

However, if you have read some of the sutras that I mentioned, especially “THE SUTRA ON THE ORIGINAL VOWS AND MERITS OF THE MEDICINE MASTER LAPIS LAZULI LIGHT TATHAGATHA” (better known as the Medicine Buddha Sutra) or “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“) or “THE SOVEREIGN KING OF SUTRA, THE SUBLIME GOLDEN LIGHT” (also known as “Suvarnaprabhāsa Sutra” or “The King of Glorious Sutra” or “The Sutra of Golden Light” or “The Golden Light Sutra”), you would have known by now that simply having these sutras will shower upon the holder or owner of the copy of the sutra tremendous amounts of blessings and most importantly protection. In that sense, a sutra is already an amulet, however, to some extent it is much more than simply being an amulet.

It is in the same principle that I’m a big advocate of wearing Kuan Yin with The Heart Sutra Pendant.

medicine-buddha-sutra-amulet-and-medicine-buddha-lamp-amulet

This is a small Medicine Buddha Sutra Amulet and a Medicine Buddha Lamp Amulet. I shall be writing about the Medicine Buddha Lamp Amulet soon.

Now each Sutra are the same that they offer protection and some blessings, but each sutra might also differ from the other. For example, THE SUTRA ON THE ORIGINAL VOWS AND MERITS OF THE MEDICINE MASTER LAPIS LAZULI LIGHT TATHAGATHA brings with it a blessing of protection, healing, good health, and wealth. So simply having a copy of the said sutra will give you all the wonderful blessings that I just mentioned.

THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA brings protection and different kind of auspiciousness and wealth luck. In fact, it is considered as one of the most powerful sutra to have with you.

THE GOLDEN LIGHT SUTRA is also very powerful protective sutra amulet, especially if you are in a managerial or leadership situation.

Again, all sutras have a protective blessing but each one differs in the other aspects of the blessings that they bestow to a person or owner. But everyone agrees that having a copy of the said sutra especially if it is printed a ‘traditional’ sutra manner carries with it some powerful energies, that is why a lot of Buddhist carries small sutra amulets and if they can get hold of it, they put traditional sutra amulets at home.

diamond-sutra2

This is a copy of the big and small THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA (traditional sutra amulet and sutra amulet) that my Guru Lama sent me. They are quite limited. I only have 10 of the big ones, and 7 of the small ones.

Allow me to share with you the story of Chuan Biao, a Filipino – Chinese who was born in China and who migrated here to the Philippines. At a very young age, just when the communist are about to take over China, Chuan Biao’s father had the foresight to leave and escape China and come to the Philippines. Chuan Biao was only about a year old then so he doesn’t have much memory of what happened. His father soon became a businessman here, and he was often told by his father that Feng Shui plays a big role in the success of his business.

Chuan Biao didn’t finish school, he didn’t even took up even just a year of college, but being the eldest son, he was trained by his father really well to handle their business, and soon Chuan Biao was handling their business and when his father passed away when Chuan Biao was only 30 years of age, he was prepared enough to handle and take over their business. Chuan Biao was also married by then, and aside from his own family; he took care of his mother, two sisters and younger brother.

After a while, his siblings also got married also, business was doing well, and he has expanded to other business. However, like many families, they started having problems because of their family business. When his brother got married, the wife wanted to get their share of the business and leave the family business. Many of you will not understand this but for Chinese families this is a big no – no. It is considered a taboo to do this. If you want to put up your own business, you just save up for it and put up your business, you don’t pull your share out of the family business. This created a big rift that broke the once peaceful family. With Chuan Biao and his sisters in one camp, then his brother in the other camp. Chuan Biao admitted that their tried to keep fair and be understanding to all her children but she really hate what Chuan Biao’s brother was doing and blamed the wife for all this.

Chuan Biao will be the first one to admit that he some what became bitter with how his brother and sister – in – law acted towards their business and their family that it became his goal to destroy his brother’s business. And so he put up the same business and naturally this made their rift even worse. So things got really serious that because of their family feud her mother had a stroke and passed away. Then this became the start of their bad luck.

Both Chuan Biao and his brother started losing money, their business went bad, and they have to start selling properties. Chuan Biao’s sisters’ family didn’t seem to have escaped the bad luck that strike. One of the sister’s husband left them for another woman, and Chuan Biao’s nephew from his other sister had an accident that rendered him paralyzed.

It is at this time that Chuan Biao’s wife seeks the help of a Buddhist monk. This particular Buddhist monk suggested that they put a sutra amulet of THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA also called THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA or simply EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA SUTRA or KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA SUTRA.

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: Although I have talked about Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva and mentioned and put a link of his sutra, I really haven’t included this sutra in the RECITE – A – SUTRA series. But this is one of the most powerful sutra in the world.

Chuan Biao’s wife decided to follow the Buddhist monk’s advice, even though at that time her relationship with Chuan Biao is also already under strain because he seems to refuse to listen to her advice that he should make peace with his brother. She was also in luck because acquiring a traditional sutra amulet is quite difficult and is quite pricey. However, she was fortunate that the Buddhist monk who gave her the advice has a copy at that time.

Anyway, Chuan Biao’s wife decided to put a copy of THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA on their altar and sure enough things started to get better. In fact, at present Chuan Biao and his whole family, including his brother’s grandchildren and great grandchildren will always have a family reunion 3x a year. Her sister who was left by her husband, is now back with her husband who repented. Chuan Biao’s nephew wasn’t able to walk again but he is now also a businessman, contrary to what the doctor said at that time that he would not be able to work again and think properly again. His brains are now fully functional.

How do I know this? I met Chuan Biao in a temple in Manila; they were saying a sutra for family members who passed away. At that time I was quite surprised to see them because it was the first time I saw such a big family. My father has 12 siblings but even our family reunions pales in comparison with what I saw. One of the Buddhist nun invited me to partake in the Vegetarian lunch sponsored by Chuan Biao’s family at the temple (it is customary for Buddhist to sponsor a vegetarian lunch at the temple where the whole family will eat also when they pray for the family members who has departed), and this is where I met Chuan Biao or Uncle Chuan Biao as I call him. He was the one who shared with me his story after 3 or 4 meetings when we were both waiting for something at the temple.

Chuan Biao is now 83 years old, he and his wife still goes to the temple a lot, and both believes that it was THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA that brought the family back together again and brought their business back to it’s old glory. Chuan Biao believes that her mother passed away with a heavy heart that caused their bad luck.

At that time, when Uncle Chuan Biao found out that I am a student of Feng Shui, Taoism and Buddhism, he asked me whether I know where they can avail of the Traditional Sutra, because he wants all his family members to have one. Most temples have it but it is never given away or even sold. But at that time I don’t have anywhere to get a copy. That was about 3 years ago.

sutra-amulets

This is a small Medicine Buddha Sutra Amulet and a Medicine Buddha Lamp Amulet. I shall be writing about the Medicine Buddha Lamp Amulet soon.

But imagine my surprise when my Guru Lama called me to inform me that he will be sending me a few copies of traditional sutra (amulet) of the THE DIAMOND SUTRA and THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA! Apparently, he got several copies from a Pure Land Buddhist monk in China, and he sent me 10 copies of each for me to be able to share with my readers in exchange for a specified donation that will go to food and an image of a Buddha. This has something to do with the exchange of energies, and to understand this better please read my post called – THE EVOLUTION OF ACQUIRING AN AMULET.

I was allowed to get one copy each so only 9 copies of each the traditional sutra (amulet) is available.

On my next post, I will talk about how THE DIAMOND SUTRA amulet and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA amulet can benefit us.

The Forecasted Financial Crisis of 2016 And What We Can Do About It!

Published Oktubre 3, 2016 by jptan2012

Late last year I made some predictions base on the analysis of the year’s (2016) Bazi Chart / Paht Chee Chart. One of the more significant predictions that I had was when I said that we might experience some financial crisis or the start of a financial crisis. The truth, I made another prediction but I would rather not discuss the other one because of it may be deemed controversial but I did write about it.

Anyway, as I said I mentioned in that forecasted financial crisis seems to be happening now. Stock is it at lowest in 7 years, with the longest streak of fall in recent history. On top of that, foreign investors or businesses are already pulling out with the President of Europe Chamber of Commerce saying that they are already pulling out of the country. Add to that that for the longest time the dollar has hit above Php 49.00 again.

Is there a reason for worry? As of now, I don’t think we should go on a panic, it definitely won’t do anything. Let’s still put our hope and trust on the government and believe that they know what they are doing. Nevertheless, it is wise to exercise prudence in spending money and also in making investments.

Feng Shui wise wearing the 9 – Eyed DZI Bead with Citrine and Pi Xiu (Pi Yao, Piyao, Pixiu, Pi Xie, Pixie) is essential. Also, displaying the 3 – Legged Toads might help.

To help deflect or minimize the effect of energy of financial problem, it is highly recommended that you carry the following Buddhist items or symbols or images that serves as an amulet – Vajrapani Ruel and / or the Kalachakra Pendant made in Gold. To gain more wisdom in managing things, especially financial matters, and to put you ahead of possible hostile competitors, wearing the image of Sakyamuni Buddha (also spelled as Shakyamuni Buddha) is highly recommended.

Chanting the following mantras are also highly recommended:

  • OM MUNI MUNI MAHA MUNI YE SOHA
  • OM MANI PADME HUM
  • OM VAJRAPANI HUM
  • OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT

Furthermore, wearing the image of Bodhisattva Sangharama or other Wealth Deity Yellow Dzambhala is also highly recommended. But for this type of financial crisis, I believe one of the most effective wealth enhancing deity is Ji Gong, though not very famous wealth god called Ji Gong or Che Kong (濟公). Also spelled as Ji Kong or Che Gong. which I have written about a few years ago. You can click here to know more about him.

At the end of the day, I rally that we support the positive things that the government is doing. Realize that the government’s success should be our success also. However, we should also exercise wisdom, after all, the government is run by people who like us may be prone to errors also. So let us support but we should also let our voice be heard if you think the government is pursuing the wrong path. But in voicing our belief, first we must truly seek to understand where the government is coming from and never ever be divisive. We can have different opinions but remain in harmony.

And for a more universal cure to this concern, let us always light an incense and recite the following sutras for our government and for our world:

How To Make Medicines More Potent!

Published Mayo 24, 2016 by jptan2012

medicinesRegular readers of this blog already know that the year is ruled by the #2 Flying Star or Illness Star. And a lot of you might have been feeling the effects already. It is because of this that my Guru Lama has come up with the Illness Suppression Amulet, which I prefer to call the Illness and Accident Suppression Amulet because it is an amulet that helps prevent accidents also. Wearing this amulet may help prevent accidents or illness from visiting you, or it might help in curing a person.

Anyway, not all can have the said amulet, but there are other ways of dealing with the Illness Star. If you are already ill or feeling ill, the first thing you should do is to go and see a doctor. And to help in your recovery, chant the Medicine Buddha Mantra over your medicines, or recite the Medicine Buddha Sutra over your medicines. After chanting or reciting them, please blow over your medicines, doing this will have aurically energized the potency of your medicine, making it more effective.

Here are the links of my Medicine Buddha posts. And you will find His mantras and sutras within these posts:

ATTENTION to All People Born in the Year of the Ox and Tiger and to All Those Who Stays in the Northeast: The Monthly Flying Star #2 Flies into the Northeast and Combine Forces with the #5 Yellow Star!

Published Mayo 6, 2016 by jptan2012

Regular readers of this blog know by now that this might be a challenging ear for people born in the year of the Ox and Tiger as well as people whose office or bedroom is in the Northeast or whose houses or office has a front door facing the Northeast. This is because the #5 Flying Star also known as Wu Wang or Five Yellow Star flows into the Northeast sector, which is also the sector that houses people born in the year of the Ox and Tiger as well as the middle son of each family. Everybody knows that this is the most dreaded star amongst all the flying stars and I suggest that if you are not familiar with the effects of this star, that you read all the other post about the 2016 annual forecast. This star together with the fact that the ruling star this year is the #2 Flying Star also known as the Illness Star, which is a star that brings in not only illness but accidents has put all the above mentioned people in a delicate energy this year. The above-mentioned people being affected by the Wu Wang have become more susceptible to the Illness Star also.

Some of you may know that other than the Annual Flying Stars, we also have the Monthly Flying Stars. The effects of these stars are basically the same but to a lesser degree. As the name implies, the Monthly Flying Stars, changes location every month, and depending on the star, this may temper or worsen your luck if combined with the Annual Flying Star.

Unfortunately, for the 4th Lunar Month (5th Western Month – May) the #2 Flying Star known as the Illness star goes into the Northeast sector. Thus affecting, I repeat, people born under the sign of the Ox and Tiger, all middle sons, people whose office or bedroom are in the Northeast, or people whose main door of their house or office faces the Northeast!

Five Element Pagoda

There are different versions of the 5-Element Pagoda. However, personally the original version and a small one, I believe, is okay and powerful enough to counter the effects of the 5-Yellow Star. As long as it’s made of gold. Also you have to be careful that the pendant is designed properly because a wrong design might make things worse. There is a 5 – Element Pagoda pendant available in the market that looks like a missile. As of today, I know only of two reliable sources of the Five Element Pagoda. One is in Davao, which makes it by order and has very affordable price, and another one is that of Lillian Too.

All of the above mentioned people should take extra care to avoid accidents or if you fall ill no matter how trivial it may seem it is better to see the doctor right away. On top of that, you should be careful financially, because weirdly the sum of Flying Stars #5 and #2 has a weird effect on finances, so be careful with your money, because financial luck or wealth luck or money luck might take a hit also. The strong earth energy in this sector this month (from May 6, 2016 to June 5, 2016) should be suppressed with the metal element. You can do this by wearing more metal or jewelries like gold that has an added Yang energy. It will be so much better if you wear the Five Element Pagoda made in Gold as a pendant. That’s the only known and accepted cure by most Feng Shui experts or Feng Shui consultants to this day.

Vajrapani Ruel

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. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

The Vajrapani Ruel will surely help, and so try to hold it on your receiving hand and chant OM VAJRAPANI HUM as often as you can this month. If possible, everyday from May 6, 2016 to June 5, 2016. If possible put it in a metal holder to add the metal energy to suppress the earth element brought in by Flying Star #5 and #2.

Wear the Illness Suppression Amulet, which also protects you from accidents. Or wear a Medicine Sutra Amulet, or an image of the Medicine Buddha made of gold. Furthermore, please chant the Medicine Buddha mantra – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA or recite the Medicine Buddha Sutra everyday. You can download the sutra on this blog by clicking here.

As mentioned wear more jewelries made of metal especially gold. If these jewelries are fashioned with auspicious designs then so much the better.

For this month, if you are an Ox or Tiger or belong to any of the above mentioned affected sector, then it is better to avoid wearing too much crystals. Remember, crystals are predominantly earth element and so one should avoid it. If you really have to wear one, please make sure it’s the golden or silver or bronze rutilated quartz. And the Tanzanite should be fine as long as it’s not worn with other crystals.

Lastly, make donations or give food to the poor or to the stray dogs and cats and even to birds. Do this sincerely. Sincerity is key.

Illness Suppression Amulet2

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

Recite A Sutra (2): Get Healed or Good Health, Create An Aura of Protection, Attract Wealth with the Power of ‘The Medicine Buddha Sutra’!

Published Abril 8, 2016 by jptan2012

In the preceding post, I reminded people about the effects of the #2 Flying Star or Illness Star that also cause accidents. One way, to protect you from it is to wear the Illness Suppression Amulet, and this amulet is proving to be a very useful tool to serve as a shield against the effect of the Illness Star.

However, there is another way of protecting oneself from the effects of the Illness Star, and that is to recite the THE SUTRA ON THE ORIGINAL VOWS AND MERITS OF THE MEDICINE MASTER LAPIS LAZULI LIGHT TATHAGATHA, which is more popularly known as the Medicine Buddha Sutra. But before that, in my previous post called INVITE WONDERFUL BLESSINGS IN YOUR LIFE BY RECITING A SUTRA. I talked about the importance and tremendous benefit one may get when reciting a sutra. By reciting, I mean chanting it out load, reading it out loud, reciting it out load. If you can recite it by heart (memory) then all the better because the merit that you get is multiplied by a hundred fold. Personally speaking I have already memorized the HEART SUTRA, THE BUDDHA SPEAKS OF THE EIGHT REALIZATIONS OF GREAT BEINGS SUTRA, THE 42 CHAPTERS SUTRA, and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA. 

Since this year the ruling star is the Illness Star, reciting the Medicine Buddha Sutra will definitely bring a lot of benefit to all people. One is sure to get good health by simply reciting this sutra. However, more than that as you read the sutra you will know that one of it’s promise is also that you get protected from evil spirits and evil intentions of other people, but more than that you can also attract wealth simply reciting this sutra. Little do people know that Medicine Buddha is not simply for good health and protection but Medicine Buddha is also a powerful Buddha that helps attract wealth. In fact, the Illness Suppression Amulet, while primarily made for protection against the effect of the #2 Flying Star, because of the fact that it is consecrated under Medicine Buddha this means that it is also a good wealth amulet.

You will find the link where you can download the Medicine Buddha Sutra below but I have written about it before and I have written about Medicine Buddha Himself before. I’ll put in the links below.

But it should be noted though that before reciting a sutra, it is customary the one should brush their teeth first and wash their face, it you take a shower better.

Put your palms together and say – NAMO FUNDAMENTAL TEACHER SHAKYAMUNI BUDDHA 3X. After that one should say also the Sutra Opening Gatha:

THE DHARMA INFINITELY PROFOUND AND SUBTLE

IS RARELY ENCOUNTERED EVEN UNDER A MILLION OF KALPAS

WE ARE NOW ABLE TO HEAR, READ, AND FOLLOW IT

MAY WE TRULY UNDERSTAND THE TATHAGATHA’S TRUE MEANING

This is basically an invocation for the Buddha Shakyamuni helps you understand the sutra.

Please click the link to download the actual sutra – The-Sutra-On-The-Original-Vows-And-Merits-Of-The-Medicine-Master-Lapis-Lazuli-Light-Tathagata. The version I’m putting here is that the one translated by Chung Tai, which is in the lineage of Zen Buddhism.

A Special Ritual to Ensure that We Truly Benefit from the ’15 Merit Days’ – An Offering to Medicine Buddha and Shakyamuni Buddha in Honor of the Healing Miracles! (Feb.21, 2016)

Published Pebrero 21, 2016 by jptan2012

Several posts ago, I wrote about the “FIFTEEN MERIT DAYS: A GIFT FROM THE HEAVEN TO HELP PROTECT US FROM THE ILL EFFECTS OF THE YEAR!” I suggest before you read on about today’s post, please read the first two parts of the said post to understand it better. Just click here (Part 1) and here (Part 2).

Throughout the first fifteen days, there are going to be some special days wherein we celebrate or honor a day of a Buddha or Bodhisattva. I suggest you continuously check this blog every morning for 15 days (which started last Feb. 8, 2016) to know whether there is a special ritual for the day. It’s not everyday that we have this ‘special days’ within the Fifteen Merit Days.

Today, we honor the healing miracles of Buddha when he was still in our world. Shakyamuni Buddha when he still has his physical body would go around healing the sick. This is the day in the ‘Fifteen Merit Days’ that it is commemorated.

Reciting the Medicine Buddha Sutra and chanting the Medicine Buddha mantra, and making flower, fruits, incense and light offerings to the Medicine Buddha and Shakyamuni Buddha today will definitely shower us with more merits.

Again to better understand the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey it will be good to read all the forecast. I know it is quite long but it is important for you to see the big picture.

Fifteen Merit Days: A Gift From the Heaven to Help Protect Us From the Ill Effects of the Year! (Part 2)

Published Pebrero 5, 2016 by jptan2012

In my preceding post, which is also the 1st part of this post, I talked about what I call the ‘Fifteen Merit Days’ that will happen on Feb. 8, 2016 to Feb. 22, 2016. As mentioned in that post, it is very rarely that the Chinese New Year and Tibetan New Year will happen at the same time, and because of this it created a special Fifteen Merit Days that can help protect us from the ill effects of the year and also create good karma for us.

Any good deeds are going to be have doubled or tripled merits.

But today, allow me some of the traditional way to earn merits on the said 15 Merit Days.

Chant the following mantras and Buddha or Bodhisattva names:

  1. Amitabha Buddha Mantra (OM AMI DEWA HRIH)
  2. Shakyamuni Buddha Mantra (OM MUNI MUNI MAHAY MUNI YE SOHA)
  3. Medicine Buddha Mantra (TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA)
  4. Mantra of the Compassionate Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara / Kuan Yin (OM MANI PADME HUM)
  5. Mantra of Ksitigarbha Buddha (OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM)
  6. Name of Samantabhadra Bodhisattva (NAMO TA XING PU XIEN PUSA)
  7. Mantra of Bodhisattva Manjushri (OM A RA PA TSA NA DHIH)
  8. Wish Fulfilling Manta and Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra (OM PADMO USHNISHA VIMALE HUM PHAT & OM HANU PASHA BHARA HEYE SOHA)
  9. Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani (OM VAJRAPANI HUM)
  10. Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrasattva (OM VAJRASATTVA HUM)

Recite the following Sutras:

  1. The Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra (Heart Sutra)
  2. The Diamond Cutter Sutra
  3. Sutra of the Medicine Buddha
  4. The Noble Stack of Auspiciousness Sutra
  5. The Buddha Speaks of Amitabha Sutra
  6. The Sutra on Impermanence

To do all these, it usually takes me 2 hours to finish all. You can omit some of the mantras or sutras mentioned on the list. However, remember the more you are able to do the more merit you’ll get. I especially recommend this to people who are sick or have a family who are sick and people born under the sign of the Ox and Tiger and also those who stay in the Northeast.

It will also be good if you can make vegetarian and fruit offering in the temple, as well as light and incense offering. Prostrating in front of an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva will also likewise add some merits.

Please note that you can add other mantras or sutras. Especially the Mantra of Goddess Tara, Yellow Dzambhala, and Maitreya Buddha.

Again to better understand the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey it will be good to read all the forecast. I know it is quite long but it is important for you to see the big picture.

People Born Under the Sign of the Ox and Tiger and People Who Stay in the Northeast Should Constantly Do These Things This 2016!

Published Enero 11, 2016 by jptan2012

If you’ve read my posts about 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast, you should know already that people born under the sign of the Ox and Tiger are severely afflicted by the dreadful #5 Flying Star (also known as the Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang).

As you may know already the Wu Wang is one of the most dreadful star in the Flying Stars Formula of Feng Shui, and being afflicted with this star means that one has to go the extra mile to be extra cautious and vigilant because this star brings different kind of misfortunes. It can make you ill, it can bring you tremendous loss of money, or even worst it can cause death. To make things worst, this star is much stronger this year because it lands on NorthEast sector, and the energies of the sector contributed to its strength. For this year, since the #2 Flying Star (also known as the Illness Star) a star that brings not only illness but accidents lands on the center of the Flying Star chart, and since people born under the sign of the Ox and Tiger are already afflicted by the Wu Wang, then their over-all chi becomes weaker also, thus making them more susceptible to the #2 Flying Star or Illness Star.

As early as now, I have had several Ox and Tiger friends and readers who have been complaining that they are experiencing some body ills. It ranges from simple headache, body ache, to a more serious freak accident where a small chandelier fell of the ceiling with no apparent reason and hit a person in the head. The only good news is that none of these were serious enough to land them in the hospital for more than 2 nights. But yes one was rushed to the hospital and has some stitches.

But it is not only the Oxes and Tigers that are affected, people who have the Kua Numbers 2, 6, 7, and 8 (please check online by typing Kua Calculator), and those who stay in the Northeast (bedroom/office) or whose house or apartment/condo door are facing the Northeast are also severely affected. So whip your compass out and check your directions.

Remember if you belong in any of the above, you should remember that you should do these the following:

  1. Put a 5 – Element Pagoda in the Northeast empowered by different powerful holy amulets like:
  2. Wear a gold Five Element Pagoda pendant and empower it with the same powerful holy amulets by carrying them with you.
  3. Be charitable. Be as sincere as possible.
  4. Be positive. Always look for the positive side and the best in any situation no matter how bad it is.
  5. Constantly chant some mantras. I suggest the following:
    1. OM MANI PADME HUM
    2. OM AMI DEWA HRIH
    3. OM MUNI MUNI MAHA MUNI YEH SOHA
    4. TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA
    5. OM VAJRAPANI HUM
    6. OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT
  6. Recite the following sutras everyday:
    1. Medicine Buddha Sutra
    2. Diamond Cutter Sutra
    3. The Universal Gateway of Bodhisattva Kuan Yin Sutra
  7. Go to a temple and light some incense or candle. Make offerings of fruit and flowers.

 

Note 1: Obviously, asking you to do everything everyday might be overwhelming for some people but I do suggest that do these things as often or as much as you can.

Note 2: The Five Element Pagoda remains to be the most effective and only cure for the #5 Yellow Star. All non – commercialized Feng Shui masters and Feng Shui experts agree that this remains to be the best and only effective cure. While looking for the Five Element Pagoda that one should put in the Northeast sector of the house or office, or entrance of the house, is quite easy to find, it is quite difficult to find the 5 – Element Pagoda gold pendant. The ones that I found online are from Lillian Too’s online store (click here to be directed to her store), and from another private seller. However the one from the private seller’s design is flawed. The second part of tier of the pagoda is extremely wrong. Luckily, another reader from the South volunteered to make one. Since the Ox need both the Kalachakra pendant the Five Element Pagoda, she was able to make one and she has nicely offered it for readers who might be interested. I have seen the prototypes and they are really nice. Will let you know more about this as soon as she has sent me the final products.

Again to better understand the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey it will be good to read all the forecast. I know it is quite long but it is important for you to see the big picture.

Illness Suppression Amulet: A Must Have Anti – Illness and Anti – Accident Amulet for 2016 and Beyond!

Published Disyembre 30, 2015 by jptan2012

If you’ve read my 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast Series (Part 1, Part 2, and  Part 3 which is the forecast for the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac / Chinese Horoscope), or if you are a Feng Shui practitioner, you will know by now that this year is ruled by the #2 Flying Star or Illness Star. However, again if you practice Feng Shui, you will also know that the Illness Star, despite of the name, is not a star that only causes illness but it also causes accidents that may result to long time illness or physical problem.

This star causes illness, which can range from a persistent cough or cold to something more serious like cancer, diabetes, heart problems or other serious illnesses. If you are already sick and immune compromise than you will have to be extra more careful about this star because it can makes things really bad.

This year because it lands on the center of the Flying Start Chart, it becomes the ruling star of the year. That means everyone is going to be affected by this star, one way or another. However, for each sign, there are certain age groups who are more affected than others, so you can actually check my “2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast for the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiacs (Chinese Horoscope)!” to find out about the ages that are more affected by the said Illness Star. But please don’t misinterpret this that if you don’t find your age in the list you are ‘free’ from this star. It only means that the effect on you may not be as bad as the others. But, of course, you will have to definitely consider other factors such as your Chinese Horoscope.

Speaking of the Chinese Horoscope or Chinese Animal Zodiacs, it has to be noted that although I gave specific ages, the Ox and Tigers are definitely affected, because of the fact that Ox and Tiger people are already affected by the Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang or #5 Flying Star, which severely weakens their chi/energy and thus making them more susceptible to the ruling Illness(and accident) Star. A lot of the people born under the sign of the Rabbit should know how bad this star could get, because two years ago landed on their sector and it is quite a strong star then. So a short reflection of the majority of the Rabbit may remember how bad it was. I personally know of several Rabbits who were particularly struck hard by this star. I remember PT found out that she had diabetes and a kidney that year, amongst others.

Furthermore, everybody who stays on the Northeast by virtue of being weakened by the Five Yellow Star will be much more susceptible to this star.

Likewise, senior citizens and those below 18 years old, and those whose job involves a lot of risky activities, and those who engage in extreme sports are highly susceptible to this star.

The good thing is there are a number of ways to combat this star and that is to wear the image of the Medicine Buddha or wear a Medicine Buddha Prayer Wheel. Because the star is the ruling star you should also supplement it with extra healing energies by either chanting the Medicine Buddha mantra – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHKENDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA – or reciting the Medicine Buddha Sutra.

For this year, since the Illness Star has become the ruling star, my Guru Lama made a special amulet called Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet. Although, I personally would have preferred that it be called Illness and Accident Protection Amulet. This is a special amulet made by Guru Lama to combat the Illness Star and at the same time to help those who are sick to go into a quick recovery.

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet has several important components or ‘ingredient’ that makes it quite effective.

First, it has the specially consecrated Medicine Buddha Mantra printed on a blue paper. I have written about the Medicine Buddha several times before, and as I have said before, Medicine Buddha as the name implies is a Buddha who has special healing energies. Simply wearing or chanting Medicine Buddha’s mantra is sure to bring a lot of healing energies, how much more if it is highly consecrated! Blessed and consecrated are two different things. Blessing is important for any amulet to be considered holy, but consecration brings it to a different level. Because the ritual calls on the Buddha or Bodhisattva to have their energy imbibe the ‘object’. Normally, the objects that can be consecrated are images of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, and a prayer wheel. However, from time to time with a process of divination other objects are allowed to be consecrated, such is the case for this one. This is a special consecration.

Note: The Medicine Buddha is not only a Buddha of healing; He is also a provider of wealth. Thus the secondary function is to gain wealth luck, which is a good charm since this year’s wealth luck is not so strong.

The amulet also has the specially consecrated mantra of the Namgyalma Buddha and the White Umbrella Goddess printed on a white paper. Namgyalma is one of the most powerful long life and health protector in the Buddhist realm and White Umbrella Goddess or Ushnisha Sitataputra, I have written about it before so I highly suggest that you read it both post about Her by clicking here(1) and here(2).

I initially thought that it would just be the mantra of Namgyalma but my Guru Lama just clarified with me last night, that on the white one are specially consecrated mantras of the Namgyalma Buddha and the White Umbrella Goddess.

Furthermore, on the red paper is the Amitayus Long Life Manta that is again specially consecrated. Amitayus Buddha is a different transformation of Amitabha Buddha, they are technically one and the same but if Amitabha is for rebirth in the Pure Land and protection, Amitayus is for long life and protection.

Illness Suppression Amulet2

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

To make Illness Suppression Amulet / Illness Protection Amulet more powerful, my Guru Lama has included a Dharma Pill on each of the amulet. A Dharma Pill is made with a second-class relic of a confirmed holy high lama, and then included some ashes from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation he conducted, thus making the healing and protective energies of the amulet even more powerful.

After putting these all together, he further consecrated the Illness Suppression Amulet under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha. This again will naturally have made the amulet even more powerful and stronger.

My Guru Lama would have wanted to release this amulet as early as last year, but he encountered some problems as to where to put the amulet. Taking inspiration from the Surangama Mantra Amulet, I decided to help acquire a special glass container for the Illness Protection Amulet, we decided on glass to help ensure that people can see the contents, and of course, to avoid problems when traveling, because a metal case might create some security problems. He would have wanted to use wood, but is unable to find a supplier for a wood case.

This amulet is one of the must have amulet for the year, but even beyond 2016, it should also serve as a good amulet to those who are sick or to those whose job involves risky activities. Furthermore, this is a good amulet for the #7 Flying Star or Violent Star.

Again, at this point I think it is important for me to explain that ‘inviting’ of this amulet will also benefit a temple in India. In relation to this please read my next post called – AN EVOLUTION OF ACQUIRING AN AMULET.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.
