THE POWER OF PRAYER: A Christian Prayer Coupled with A Buddhist Prayer Made A Critical Day Run Really Smooth!

Published Abril 21, 2017 by jptan2012

Recently I have to travel to Davao as a favor to BM. We have to do some ceremonies or ritual at her husband’s office. I really don’t want to go because it will take a lot of time and it will eat up a day of my official business time. Anyway, Guru Lama told me to go and so I went.

The problem is this; I can only fly via Cebu Pacific in the morning and leave also on the same day. And so BM booked me on flight that leaves at around 430am. But I have to be in Davao at around 7am or 730am because that’s the time we should start the first part of the ritual, which will be followed by another ritual around 930am and then at 1130am.

If you are from the Philippines, you know that most domestic flights gets really delayed, not by an hour or two but sometimes even for 8 hours!!!! And so I was beginning to think that we might have made the wrong decision of booking my flight in the morning of when we should do the ritual. I expressed this concern to BM and she said to just pray and trust that everything will be smooth.

The day before my flight I thought of requesting my flight be rebooked for that night to I can come a day ahead and stay there for the night, but I realized that this is financially impractical because it will end up causing more than the original price, it will look like that two tickets were bought. Again, BM said let’s just pray and be positive. Of course, it was awkward that a reader should remind me of this because always tell my readers that being positive is always the first line of defense in Feng Shui.

On the day of my flight on the car going to the airport, I decided to hold my Vajrapani Ruel and I kept on chanting OM VAJRAPANI HUM. Whenever, I’ll chant 108 times, I’ll say a short prayer to Bodhisattva Vajrapani to help make it to Davao on time. When I get to the airport, I saw that the first Cebu Pac flight to Davao was delayed. And so I told the ground steward to just put me in the first flight, which was delayed because I really need to be in Davao by 7am. However, I was told that the first flight is fully booked and I cannot be accommodated. And so I continued to chant OM VAJRAPANI HUM while holding my Vajrapani Ruel. At the same time, relying on BM’s prayers that I will make it on time.

To my surprise, my flight was on time, and in fact we left Manila ahead of the first flight to Davao. And so I made it on time to Davao.

And we were able to push through with the ritual without a hitch.

Nevertheless, I still need to come back to Manila. Although I no longer have appointments that evening, I still need to want to fly back to Manila on time because I badly need rest and I still have a meeting the following day. But of course, I was not very hopeful that I’d get lucky. But guess what? My flight was on time on the dot. So I thought that Cebu Pacific flights are now on time. So I told that flight attendant that it’s good that flights now are on time because my morning flight and evening flight are both on time. The flight attendant smiled and replied in Filipino, “You just got lucky because delays are still really bad!”

No I did not get lucky, two flights in a day cannot be about luck, it was the power of BM’s prayers and the power of my prayers to Vajrapani Bodhisattva while holding the Vajrapani Ruel that made my flight fly on time and for everything to go smoothly that day.

2017 Year of the Fire Rooster Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi, Flying Stars Formula, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: A Balance Chart But A Conflicting Year (Part 1)

Published Disyembre 21, 2016 by jptan2012

A lot of people have been asking me as to why I haven’t posted anything for more than a week. That is because I ran of banked stories to post because of hectic November and December and also I have to do the Feng Shui analysis for 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster. This takes a lot of time for me to compute and analyze.

In the previous years, I would write my forecast in January so that it doesn’t interfere with the traditionally busy month of December. I do this because I don’t a pool of people analyzing the year’s Feng Shui for me, instead, I have to this on my own, do the computation myself then after that do the analysis. Thus it is easier to do it in January. Furthermore, I want to disabuse the belief that the energies of the year starts in January, because it starts either every February 4 of the year or when Chinese New Year comes in.

However, last year I broke this tradition because the energies of the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey came early. This year, the Year of the Fire (Intense) Rooster is no different. It’s energies can already be felt by January 4, 2016 and it will already mix the with tail end of the annual energies of 2016 and the monthly energy of the last month of the lunar calendar.

2017-bazi

Image lifted from Google Images.

I write this post with a little trepidation. 2017’s Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart is quite balance, which is totally different from last year’s chart, and that is a good news. However, amongst the 4 pillars of the chart, only one pillar has a harmonious relationship, the rest are actually destructive pillars. This is not totally surprising because a year is rarely, in fact almost never totally good or totally bad. But what is a cause for concern for me is that the chart indicates a calamitous or cataclysmic event in the 3rd quarter of the year. This can be a worldwide occurrence or it can be patches of smaller (per country) cataclysmic event that will have a worldwide impact. Before I move on to discussing these things in detail, I would like to make clear again, like every year, that this forecast is base on analysis of the Paht Chee Chart / Bazi Chart of the year, together with the Flying Stars and the 24 Mountain Stars Formula. I’m not psychic, this doesn’t come from channeling an energy to make a prediction, rather I compute the bazi chart and make an analysis about it.

Now the question is how accurate are the forecast, and note that I use the word forecast and not prediction, well, as pointed out by readers I have a high batting average and I say this with extreme humility. To this day, it is only this blog who has brazenly written about the Yolanda tragedy (Typhoon Haiyan) that struck Central Visayas before it happened and not in hindsight. While I was not able to pinpoint that it will be in Leyte, I clearly pointed out that a natural calamity followed by a shortage of food will struck somewhere in Visayas in the Philippines. This was forecasted and a reader remembered and pointed it out. This was followed by the extreme heat weather forecast, then the earthquake in Nepal, and lastly by the forecast of the presidential elections in the Philippines and the financial instability that is happening now. And so I say that I write this post with a little trepidation because of some things that the chart shows may happen this year.

Anyway, I think I’m getting ahead of myself. Now allow me to share with you the year’s Bazi / Paht Chee.

For those of you who are familiar with the Bazi / Paht Chee you will notice that the first good news that I can share with you is that all five elements, namely wood, metal, water, fire, and earth made an appearance in the chart. This is good because this indicates that the year is a balance year. It’s been quite some time since we had a balance year and as you may remember, 2016 was one of the worst imbalanced years with the total absence of the fire element. Superficially speaking this 2017 should be a harmonious year, and since all elements are present, it also indicates that there should be a lot of resources available and that there should be stability. But if you notice I used the word ‘superficially’ because the four pillars indicates, as already mentioned earlier, that it is conflicting or in disharmonious state. That is true for the 3 pillars out of the 4 pillars. Furthermore, the ruling Chinese Zodiac, which is the Rooster is also afflicted with the #3 Flying Star or Argument Star, so this sort of negates that harmonious state of the presence of all the five elements in the Bazi Chart. More on about the #3 Flying Star affliction later.

Before I discuss the implications of each pillar. I would like to share with you first some of the luck controlled by each of the element.

fireThis year Wealth Luck is controlled by the Fire element. So those of you who have a high fire element in there Bazi or Paht Chee is somehow assured of wealth or financial luck coming your way. This means that it would be easier for you to get wealth luck compared to other people. To enhance this, one can simply wear more red or wear a red gemstone. Putting light in your front door is also a very powerful way of enhancing this energy; just make sure your front door is not in the North. Furthermore, one can carry a lighter and light the lighter several times a day.

earthPower Luck is controlled by the Earth Element, and this year it is quite important to have power because while it has determined a lot of things for a person, this year that energy will be doubled. Also in the 3rd and 4th quarter of the year, one has to have power for one to have access to wealth luck. For those whose Bazi / Paht Chee has a very high earth element is assured already of being a little bit more powerful than most people. The Earth element is one of the most important element this year, because it controls a lot of things. To enhance this energy do wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (also called Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa) and one should wear more gems or semi – precious stones. Wearing citrine or topaz is one of the best stone to wear this year.

waterFriendship Luck is controlled by the Water Element. This year the water element is quite high so it indicates that instead of friendship and support that energy is turn into competitiveness. It will not be surprising if friends back stabbed friends to get more of a winning advantage, thus this brings us back to the importance of having more power. Let me clarify here that when I say power this doesn’t refer only to actual power that comes with a position, but rather also more subtle power that comes from within. Furthermore, to deflect the negative effect of this energy, one will do well to wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet(1) or a Vajrapani Ruel(1). Normally, we can suggest a harmony charm or cure, but for this year a harmony charm will not have much effect for the effects of this energy.

metalResources Luck is controlled by the Metal Element. If you notice, the suggestion is to wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva made of gold. Why? Because one will also need the energy of a metal to have resources, which is quite an important aspect of having power. Resources here refer not only to the physical and tangible resources, but also life chi or inner chi resources.

woodIntellectual Luck is controlled by the Wood Element. There is only one wood in the chart and this means that intellect doesn’t really play much of a factor in the wielding of power, and this is quite scary, because it shows that a lot of people especially those who are in power and who are near a powerful person will not use much of their brains. However, while this is weak, it also presents an opportunity for us to tap into the energies of the wood element for us to have an upper hand. Wearing a citrine this year will already enhance that energy but if one can have a petrified wood or be surrounded by trees or plants or wear wood jewelries, then one can have access to more Intellectual Luck. Who knows this might make a lot of differences. In fact, I personally think more intellect will make a lot of difference.

Looking at the Bazi Chart, first we are reassured that it indicates that this year will be dominated by what I would call ‘action energy’. Meaning more people will be inclined to see and act on positive things, on top of that, more people will tend to be more cooperative. Politically speaking this may be a good thing because people will tend to look for more positive things from the government.

However, we all see that at the first pillar of the Bazi /Paht Chee, which is one of the more important pillar in the chart and rules the first quarter of the year, the Heavenly Stem Yin Fire is destroying the Yin Metal element of the Rooster. This indicates that the start of the year may be a little challenging in terms of personal goals and also for wealth or financial aspect. Somehow we are able to see that start of this challenges already, especially in the Philippines when the peso continues to be weak even with the influx of remittances from the Overseas Filipino Workers sector coming in. The BSP Governor (BSP stands of Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas or in English Central Bank of the Philippines) has also express apprehension with how the peso is doing in the international market. Other countries might also experience the same financial crisis because this is not true only to the Philippines. However, this is where the nation’s leader comes in, depending on how they manage the country, and handle the energies of the year, this may still be reversible or at the very least tempered.

On a personal level, the start of the year will also make most people (not all) that things are not taking off the way they want it to be. It will be more difficult and people might encounter a lot of problems along the way. To help counteract these negative energies of the first quarter, which will have a lasting effect on the rest of the year, one will do well to wear a powerful amulet like the Vajrapani Ruel(2) or a Kalachakra pendant made of gold or jade.

I’ll jump to the hour pillar first because this is another disharmonious pillar. This pillar rules the last quarter of the year. In this pillar you’ll see that the Yang Earth is destroying the Yang Water element of the sign of the Rat. This indicates a very strong instability for corporate worlds and most especially politically. Furthermore, it shows that the last quarter of the year may be a little turbulent; this is both for financial and personal life. Most Chinese Zodiac Animal signs are affected, especially those whose sign has an intrinsic elements of Earth, Wood, Water, and Fire. The only one that was spared is those whose intrinsic element is Metal. To counter this, it is advisable for one to wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (also known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa). It is also better if this is worn as gold for you to have more of the metal energy that one needs. However, this is something that you don’t just wear on the last quarter, you need to store up on the energy bestowed by wearing the image Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha (Bodhisattva Earth Store), so it is advisable to wear this as early as January of 2017.

ksitigarbha pendant

From my personal collection. A rare Red Amber Ksitigarbha. If wearing it as a pendant, I prefer the image with the five leave crown. Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to get a Ksitigarbha pendant unless you’re from Malaysia, Hong Kong, or Singapore. FOR THIS YEAR IT IS IMPORTANT TO WEAR THE IMAGE OF BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA IN GOLD.

Let us now examine the 3rd Pillar of the Paht Chee, which is the Day Pillar, a pillar that rules the third quarter of the year. For those of you who are familiar with the relationships of the elements, you’ll see right away that this is another disharmonious pillar, but this time it is the earthly branch Yang Earth element of the Dog that destroys the Yang Water of the Heavenly Stem. This indicates that the third quarter is going to be ruled by some strong power. This may be good or bad depending on who has the power, and thus superficially speaking it depends on who the leader is. However, we mentioned earlier that there is what I call ‘action energy’ or people might tend to be more cooperative. Taking that into consideration there might be a subtler power but might prove to be more effective in the long run. But what is scary here whether who has the power whether good or bad this might still have some destructive effect. A possibility of a significant calamity is also possible this 3rd quarter. Again, for this it would do well to tap on the energy of Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa (Earth Store Bodhisattva), and it will do well for one to have the Vajrapani Ruel(3) or a gold or jade Kalachakra pendant.

Let us now examine the 2nd Pillar, which is the Month Pillar and has significant effects on the 2nd quarter of the year. Putting this last in the analysis of the pillars only because this one brings good news. And it is important to be forewarned about the negative first before we concentrate on enhancing the good. The 2nd Pillar is one pillar that has a harmonious relationship. How does this translate to us? It means that the 2nd quarter of the year may be the best time of the year; especially those who want their project to take off.

This year the hidden stem also produced a lot of special stars; some of them are good some are bad. First, there is the Peach Blossom Star, which is depending on your current situation may be either good or bad. This star may help bring lovers and life long partners into your life. However, this also brings in third party problems for those who are already married or attached. Especially affected to the negative effects of this star are those couple that sleeps on their bad directions. Unfortunately, this is something that I cannot discuss here because this varies from one person to another.

The hidden stem also produced the Mentor Star, which means some of us can tap into the power of influential people or those elder either in years or experience to help achieve our goals. This also means that when you tap into the power of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Deities, Goddess, or Taoist Gods you can get more help. To activate this star, it will do well to wear an image of a Buddha or a Bodhisattva. Some of my favorites for this star are the image of Buddha Sakyamuni (Buddha Shakyamuni), Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara(1) (also called Kuan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kannon) or Bodhisattva Sangharama (also called Qie Lan Sheng Chong Pu Sa, Qie Lan Pu Sa, or popularly known as Kuan Kong which is also spelled as Guan Gong). This year if you are wearing an image of Bodhisattva Earth Store (Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha) it also serves as tapping into the power of the Mentor Star.

Kuan Kong Gold Pendant

Those people born under the year of the Dragon because they have the Heavenly Protector Star! This is one of the most auspicious stars produced by the hidden stem of the year. Having this star helps you get protected from the negative energies of the year. To help further strengthen this star it is highly advisable for one to wear a very powerful amulet or an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva.

Those are some of the good stars produced by the hidden stem of the year’s Paht Chee Chart or Bazi Chart. However, there is one very strong negative star that was also produced by the hidden stem of the year’s Bazi /Paht Chee chart. This is the Malevolent Star or what others call Aggressive Star. This star helps strengthen the negative aspects of power. So wrong things might become more pervasive. Everybody is affected but people born under the year of the Rat are most affected. This also indicated a more competitive financial scenario and political scenario. Furthermore, this also shows that businesses will become more ruthless, all these has a negative connotations is each one of us. To help insulate and protect yourself from this star, it is advisable for you to have a very powerful amulet or symbol like the Vajrapani Ruel(4) or a gold Kalachakra pendant. Having the Traditional Sutra Amulets like The Diamond Sutra or The Sutra On The Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva in your home or office will also help insulate you from the negative effects of this hidden star.

On the Part 2 of this post, I will discuss what’s in store for 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster base on the Flying Stars Formula and 24 Mountain Stars Formula.

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.

Let’s Talk About the Wu Lou or Holy Gourd Again!

Published Oktubre 10, 2016 by jptan2012

wu-louOne of the very few things I talked about in the blog is about the Wulou (also spelled as Wu Lou) or Holy Gourd. But I think it is worth talking about it again, because I notice that people seem to think that the Holy Gourd is only good for the helping to keep us healthy and as an illness cure. I have mentioned this before but maybe it didn’t quite sink in, but the Wulou is also a very powerful Wealth cure or charm and also a very good protection charm.

wu-lou2

Carrying an Wu Lou Amulet is one of the best way to tap into it’s power.

It is largely use as a health charm or cure because in the olden days, the Wulou usually contains medicine. But one has to remember that in the olden times, most medicines are also made of some kind of a wine or liquor, and in fact, it is also use a wine container, thus it also has become a symbol of wealth. In fact, it is one of the most powerful symbol of wealth that Feng Shui experts and consultants normally advice people to display a vase in the shape of a Wulou. In fact, the vase of Bodhisattva Kuan Yin (also spelled and called as Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Cannon, Kannon, Avalokitesvara) is also shape in the form of a Wulou. Furthermore, a lot of the Taoist Gods also carries a Wulou where it is said some of their powers are stored. And it is because of this that the Wulou is also highly regarded as a symbol of protection.

As you can see, the Wulou is a three – in – one Feng Shui charm or cure.

wu-lou3

But wearing it as a pendant, either made of gold or jade or any other precious or semi – precious stone is my favorite way of tapping to the power of a Wu Lou.

Deflecting A Hostile Energy that is Leading to A Fight with the Power of the Seed Syllable Hum and Hrih!

Published Oktubre 6, 2016 by jptan2012

I’m pretty positive that a lot of you have in one way or another got into a fight already. It may be as bad as a physical fight or it can be an intense argument. Sometimes, these things happen instantly that we are left wondering as to what happened, but most of the time, I’m pretty sure that most of us are able to see as to when a fight is about to happen. We can see this by reading the facial and body language of the people involve, or simply being aware of our own emotions. For some you will know that a fight is really about to happen because you actually feel the hostile energy or hostile energies that leads up to it.

Not all arguments leads to a fight, in fact, some of us may see people having argument and it may be heating it up a little but somehow we know that it ends there. This is because we can, albeit subconsciously, feel the hostile energy of a fight is actually not present. In fact, even the body and facial language of the people involve are actually the result of them feeling the hostile energies.

In one of my recent travels, I brought with me a special amulet, as it turn out I cannot just bring it with me on the plane and I had to have some kind of a special permit from the Bureau of Customs and the National Museum. This resulted to some argument between me and my travel companions with the authorities, not because we don’t understand the rules, but due to how they handled the situation. The first time this happened, I just brought to mind as to how one of my readers, BM, will handle the matter, and so the hostile energy was deflected by the calm and peaceful energy I projected.

However, because of that tension, one of my travel companion who happens to be client and is paying for the trip got a little riled, and maybe she sort of absorbed all the hostile energies that seems to be surrounding us at that time, especially she doesn’t believe in Feng Shui and is not wearing any amulet. And truth be told she was also under a lot of stress at that time because it was the first big project that her company entrusted her to lead, and plus we have to deal with some politicians. So after the issue has been cleared with the Custom Officer at the airport and everything should have been sort of mellowed, she is still quite agitated and would get quite heated up with petty matters. So it became a little stressful for the group, although at that time I wasn’t much affected because of the amulets that are with me and I made it a point to project a peaceful and positive energy.

Nevertheless, she seems unable to deflect the negative energy and we got to our destination, she was still riled up and seems to be picking a fight with everybody. At some point, one of her colleague and me became the target of her irritation and she was almost sort of picking a fight. After the first meeting of the day, when we had a 10 minute break, her colleague who believes in Feng Shui took me aside and ask me whether I notice that we have been the target of the irritation of the project head. I said yes, he then said he is really close to fighting back.  It is then I remembered one of the best way to deflect an hostile energy, and that is by using the seed syllables Hum and Hrih, and since there is 2 of us, I told him that I will very quietly chant Hum and he should quietly chant Hrih and send those energies to the project head. We do this by simply looking at her and mindfully sending her the energies.

That’s what we both did and to the surprise of the other guy, she (the project head) calmed down and what nice again. She was back to her natural calm and sweet self.

Before I talk more about the seed syllable Hum and Hrih, it should be stated here that I think she got most affected with the hostile energies simply because she physically hasn’t had enough rest and she was worried about the project, this created a chip on her aura that she began to absorb all the unwanted hostile or negative energies.

Now why did I use the seed syllable Hum and Hrih. Hum is a very powerful protective syllable, and it also has the power to send positive energies, does I decided to use that. Hrih on the other hand is powerful seed syllable to deflect negative energies, in fact, if you are in an highly intense surrounding or profession such as being a lawyer, politician, marketing, or advertising it will be good if you wear the seed syllable Hrih. It makes a good protection amulet.

Chant – A – Mantra (3b): Daily Mantras to Chant – The 4 Main Bodhisattvas of Chinese Buddhism!

Published Hulyo 12, 2016 by jptan2012

In the preceding post, I briefly talked about the importance of chanting mantras daily. Sometimes, chanting mantras takes getting used to and the more we do it, the more we get used to it, the more it is easier for us to learn new mantras. But more than that, chanting mantras should be considered like taking vitamins, we have to take it everyday for us to build resistance, and in this case resistance to negative chi. Furthermore, aside from building resistance to negative chi or negative energies, chanting mantras daily makes us more attuned to the cosmic energy of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas whose mantra we are chanting, not to mention it makes more attuned to the cosmic energy in general.

While we won’t be able to recite the entire mantras daily, because some of them are long and there are really a lot of mantras available for us. Chanting daily mantras of selected Buddhas or Bodhisattvas will also make us, as mentioned earlier, more attuned with the cosmic energy, to the divine cosmic energy of the world of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, in such a manner that when we have to chant a specific mantra for a specific purpose, because we already have a ‘relationship’ with the divine cosmic energy, it is easier for us to be attuned to the energy of the new mantra we are chanting, even this is for only a specific purpose.

Yesterday, I shared with you the initial list of the mantras I chant daily. Namely of the 3 main Buddhas of our time and they are Amitabha Buddha, Shakyamuni Buddha (Sakyamuni Buddha) and the only celestial Buddha among the three, Medicine Buddha.

Note: Medicine Buddha is the simplified name. Medicine Buddha’s formal name is Bhaisajya – guru – vaidūrya – prabhā – raja or King of Medicine Master and Lapis Lazuli Light. His Tibetan common name is Bhaisajyaguru.

Today, allow me to share with you the other mantras that I chant everyday. They are 4 Main Buddha of Chinese Buddhism, especially for Pure Land Buddhism and Zen Buddhism.

Note: Zen Buddhism although has Japanese name actually started in China. It’s the English-speaking world that ‘popularized’ Zen Buddhism, but in reality it is called Chan Buddhism.

THE 4 MAIN BODHISATTVAS WHOSE MANTRAS I CHANT EVERYDAY ARE THE FOLLOWING:kuan Yin3 white

  1. NAMO DA PEI KWAN SHI YIN PU SA & OM MANI PADME HUM (Mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Kuan Yin) – Kuan Yin (also known as Avalokitesvara, Kannon, and also spelled as Guan Yin, Kwan Yin, Gwan Yin) is more popularly known as the Bodhisattva of Compassion. Sometime people also refer to her as the Buddha of Compassion (although she is not a Buddha) or Goddess of Mercy (although she is also not a Goddess). I have written about Kuan Yin Bodhisattva many times, so I will put the link to those articles below. But it should be noted that perhaps Kuan Yin Bodhisattva is perhaps the most famous and most revered Bodhisattva in all lineage and school of Buddhism. She has become so famous that even the Taoist has adopted her as one of their Goddess. I personally make sure that I always chant her mantra.You can read more about Kuan Yin Bodhisattva by clicking on the links below:

 

  • NAMO DA YUAN DI ZHANG WANG PU SA and OM AH KSTIGARBHA THALENG HUM and OM PRA MANI DANI SOHA (Mantra of the Bodhisattva of Great Vow, Ksitigarbha) – Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva is known to have committed to the Buddha that he will not enter Buddhahood unless he has freed all sentient beings from hell or from being a hungry ghost. This is his great vow. Chanting his mantra will help ensure that we are freed from suffering and help ensure a good rebirth. To under stand Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva better please read: Ksitigarbha Buddha is a Bodhisattva Who Vowed to Help All Those Who Suffer in Hell and In this World.

    Samantabhadra

    Bodhisattva Samantabhadra

  1. NAMO DA XING PU XIAN PU SA and OM AH HUM AH A KAR SA LE OD A YANG OM DU (Mantra of the Bodhisattva of Great Conduct, Samantabhadra) – Samantabhadra Bodhisattva is a Bodhisattva known for her great conduct. She is also known as the Bodhisattva of Truth, because it is her sincerest desire the real truth be exposed does she has the famous TEN GREAT VOWS OF BODHISATTVA SAMANTABHADRA, where in each item of those vows has something to do with the permanent truth of Buddhism.

    Manjushri is a disciple of Sakyamuni Buddha. He is also a great Bodhisattva.

  1. NAMO DA ZHI WUN SHU SHI LI PU SA and OM A RA PA CHA NA DHI (Mantra of the Bodhisattva of Wisdom, Manjushri) – Manjushri Bodhisattva (also spelled as Manjushree) is a Bodhisattva known for his commitment to make all sentient beings attained the perfect wisdom or full enlightenment. He is usually depicted holding a sword and a sutra book. The sword represents the slashing of false knowledge, and the sutra book represents that we are only able to attained perfect wisdom with the help of the sutra or words of the Historical Buddha, Shakyamuni. Chanting the mantra of Bodhisattva Manjushri will help us attain wisdom and guide us in making our daily decisions.

So you see, aside from the mantras of the 3 main Buddhas of our time, I also chant the mantras of the 4 main Bodhisattvas of Chinese Buddhism. But that’s not all, in my succeeding posts, I will share with you the other mantras I chant everyday.

Fifteen Powerful Vajrapani Days Starts Today!

Published Hulyo 7, 2016 by jptan2012

Yesterday, was the feast day of the Bodhisattva Vajrapani and this marks a wonderful next 15 days (starting today) because it is said that the Vajrapani Ruel or the mantra of Vajrapani Bodhisattva is even more powerful in the 15 days after his feast day.

vajrapani-6

Namo Vajrapani Bodhisattva

Bodhisattva Vajrapani is unique in the sense that the celebration of his feast day is highlighted after the actual day. Why? This is because Vajrapani Bodhisattva is said to be a secret guardian. In the introduction of Vajrapani Ruel, in the post called – THE WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL AMULET IN THE BUDDHIST PANTHEON CALLED VAJRAPANI RUEL – you will get to read that it is Bodhisattva Vajrapani who protected the then still not fully enlightened and still very human Gautama Siddhartha. At that time, Gautama Siddhartha is fast approaching enlightenment, then a demon attacked him so that he will not reach full enlightenment, it was then Bodhisattva Vajrapani was instructed by Amitabha Buddha to protect the then human Bodhisattva Gautama Siddhartha, who became the Historical Buddha, Shakyamuni. In a way, Shakyamuni Buddha (Sakyamuni Buddha) became a Buddha because of Vajrapani Bodhisattva.

All Bodhisattvas are powerful but it is only Bodhisattva Vajrapani who has been described as powerful. This is because he is mostly characterized by his power, as Kuan Yin (also know as Avalokitesvara, Kwan Yin, Guan Yin, Gwan Yin, Kannon) is characterized by her compassion, Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva by his vow, Samantabhadra Bodhisattva by her conduct, and Manjushri Bodhisattva by his wisdom. How the Bodhisattvas are characterized says a lot about them, and no other Bodhisattvas got the characterization of power except Bodhisattva Vajrapani.

It is because Vajrapani Bodhisattva is a secret guardian that is traditionally a day after his feast day that his power is celebrated or tapped. This blog has a lot of Bodhisattva Vajrapani miraculous personal testimonies, mostly because of the Vajrapani Ruel. These stories shows how powerful Bodhisattva Vajrapani really is. But even if you don’t have the Vajrapani Ruel, you can still tap into his power by simply chanting Bodhisattva Vajrapani’s mantra – OM VAJRAPANI HUM – under deep meditative level.

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.

Furthermore, if you have the Vajrapani Ruel, and couple it with chanting the mantra OM VAJRAPANI HUM, will make the next 15 days really miraculous days. And if you can go vegan for the next 15 days all the more better, because going vegan will have cleanse your body from all the yin foods or foods that have to die first for you to be able to eat. Doing this as a symbolic offering to the Bodhisattva Vajrapani will make you more open to his wonderful blessings.
