Amulet 101 (B): Unseen Forces Might Prevent You From Getting Hold of An Amulet!

Published Hunyo 13, 2016 by jptan2012

I remember that several years back my aunt from my father side was trying to get hold of THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA AMULET. She was going through something at that time, and I was the one who suggested for her to get one, especially she was scheduled to go to China when we got to talk. And I told her of a temple that she can visit that has THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA AMULET that is blessed by a high ranking monk, but I also warned her that it might be quite difficult to go to that place. She said she will get it and called up her travel agency to include it in her itinerary.

NOTE: ‘The Diamond of Perfect Wisdom Sutra” is also called “The Diamond Sutra”, “The Vajra Cutter Perfection of Wisdom Sutra”, “The Vajra Sutra”, “The Vajra Cutter Sutra”. You can also read more about THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA by clicking on this link.

However, two weeks prior she was to fly for China, she found out that she lost her passport. So she sent out for her to be replaced, when she found out how much money she has to pay for it to come out on time, she wanted to back out. I told her that it is just a minor inconvenience since she can afford the said amount.

A week before she was to leave, her grandson got really ill, which prompted her to cancel her flight again. Again I said that she should just continue with her plan. Meanwhile, her problems is getting worse, unfortunately, I’m unable to share here the details of the said problem because of its sensitive nature.

Then on the day she is about to leave, she missed her flight; the only saving grace is that her daughter convinced her to simply take the next flight out. When she arrived in China she experienced several more ‘hindrances’ and she would call me long distance to ask me whether she should just cancel everything. I continued to tell her to just move on with her trip.

Then a day before she is set to go to the said temple, which is a plane ride away, she found that there was a big storm in the said area. She was traveling with some friends and her son (my cousin) and her daughter – in – law. Her friends got scared and cancelled. She set to do the same thing. Not wanting to risk her life, I said maybe she should simply cancel, but at the same time, I can’t help but feel that it seems she is experiencing a lot of hindrances for her to get the amulet. This convinced me all the more that she should get it. But, of course, I don’t want to be accused that I was the one who pushed her to go should she get into some accident. So as I said I told her not to go.

But then I called my Guru Lama, and his advised his to ask my aunt to go. I called my cousin, and he and his wife need no convincing, because they want to see the said place also. And maybe because they are young they are a bit more adventurous and don’t worry about the possibility of airplane accident because of the bad weather. I also talked to my aunt and she agreed to risk it and go. The flights were not cancelled anyway but they were warned beforehand that it would be rough flight. But to be completely honest, I knew then that she was already having second thoughts because she herself said, maybe she is not meant to get the amulet. And because I know that her problems are getting worse everyday, I told her maybe unseen forces are blocking her from getting the amulet, and all the more she should pursue in getting the amulet.

They told me later the flight was really bad and scary that even my adventurous cousin and his wife got really scared. Then when they got to the hotel in the said town, my auntie slipped at the lobby and her left foot had to be bandaged. She can still walk though albeit with some difficulty and has to be assisted. That night she called me to inform me about, I knew then that she really needs to get THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA AMULET because what is happening is definitely beyond normal and that unseen forces are stopping her from getting it. I already gave her some mantras that she can chant, and I added a few more.

It took her another two days before they were able to go to the said temple because of the heavy rains for two or three days. When she got to the temple, the Abbott of the said temple who I think is psychic told her that she her problems will end if she let my uncle wears the amulet. She was told that she couldn’t wear the amulet. So it was placed in a special pouch, they did some ritual, and she was told to bring it out only when her husband, my uncle can wear it.

So they set to come home. Then the airline lost one of their check – in luggage, which happens to be the one to have the amulet. She had trouble getting her luggage back, and to make the long story short, it required several more mantras and exactly 19 days before she got her luggage back. Thankfully the amulet is still inside.

She then asked her husband to wear the said amulet. About a month after wearing the amulet, her concerns started to get it straighten out!

I want to share this story with you because we should all realize that sometimes the more you need the amulet, the more ‘unseen forces’ might prevent it from happening. So the more one should pursue in getting it. These unseen forces can be negative elements like hungry ghost or evil spirits, or it can be karmic. Whatever the reason, you should remember that if you have problems acquiring an amulet all the more you should pursue in getting it.

Mystic Knot3

The Victory Banner is considered as one of the 8 Auspicious Object in Buddhism.

I have previously written about the Mystic Knot, and the Victory Banner. If you wish to know more about it, please just click on the following link:

The Mystical Mystic Knot and The Victory Banner: A Powerful Feng Shui Tool for Career Success.

The last object on the 8 Auspicious Objects of Buddhism is the Dharmachakra Wheel.

The truth is Dharmachakra means Wheel, so to call it Dharmachakra Wheel is a bit redundant, however, Dharmachakra Wheel is a term where most people outside Tibet are familiar with, so it is the term that I’ll be using here.dharmachakra wheel

The Dharmachakra Wheel is a symbol of Buddha’s teaching, however, the different parts each have their own iconography. The rim represents the factor of limitation, the hub represents the Earth’s axis, and the eight spokes shows the Eightfold Path dictated by Buddha.

In Feng Shui, the Dharmachakra Wheel is a powerful symbol to use for surmounting all shortcomings. Furthermore, the Dharmachakra Wheel is a powerful protection symbol that we can use to protect all the non-material things that are important to us.

conch-shellIn ancient times the Conch Shell is used as a trumpet horn, and was considered as a symbol of strength and sovereignty. It is also said that ‘heroic figures’ are also given the conch shell as a symbol of gratitude from the ruler. Religiously, specially in Tibetan Buddhism, the conch shell is a ‘vessel’ for holy water and holy oil, and is also used as a trumpet to signify the start of an important religious event.

In Feng Shui, the conch shell is a powerful tool for those who wants to be able to prosper in their business ventures. It is also extremely beneficial for politicians to carry a conch shell because it will help them be stable in their position.

Carrying a conch shell is also a powerful tool to help a person attain a higher level of meditation.

The Eight Auspicious Objects of Buddhism: The Lotus

A pink lotus flower and lily pads with saturated colorThere are a lot of Buddhist and Taoist icons that are depicted either sitting on a lotus or are holding a lotus. This is because the growth pattern of  a lotus represents the development that a being can make. The lotus has the ability to blossom out of dirty or muddy water – which represents materialism, the it grows past the water – which indicates experience, and make its way towards the sun – which represents enlightenment. It is a symbol of both mental and spiritual purity. The lotus which is a water flower is a symbol of blossoming decent deeds, that results in purification of the both mind and body.

In Feng Shui, the lotus also has the power to transform bad luck into good luck, and it is also said that the lotus has the power to drive out negative energies.

Wearing an image of the lotus made of a white stone or jade will help bring lots of blessings. It will also help in the attainment of the enlightenment.

The Eight Auspicious Objects of Buddhism: The Wealth Vase or Treasure Vase

Published Abril 6, 2013 by jptan2012

wealthvase1In one of my earlier post entitled FENG SHUI TIPS TO ENHANCE WEALTH LUCK,  I talked about the treasure vase, now allow me to briefly talked about it again. The treasure vase, even without the ritual and powerful ingredients that goes with it is a very powerful wealth – granting symbol or object. It is a powerful object that brings tons of material and financial prosperity.

In China, a lot of the rich people their has wealth vase hidden in their cupboard or cabinets. Some of the noveau rich in China also has wealth vase in their living rooms. I personally believe that wealth vases should be hidden and not displayed.

golden fishA pair of fish represents harmony, good family life, happiness, fertility and recovery. Given that the pair of fish are golden, it also represents abundance. In China, the fish also symbolizes unity and loyalty, and it is for this reason that the golden fish are often offered as wedding gifts to symbolize an abundant long peaceful life of the couple.

Thus a pair of golden fish is good for people who are facing financial troubles with their partners.

The Eight Auspicious Objects of Buddhism: An Introduction and The Parasol

Published Abril 4, 2013 by jptan2012

I know I have written about some of the 8 Auspicious Objects of Buddhism in passing before, but I really haven’t written about all of them. So please allow me to introduce you to The Eight Auspicious Objects of Buddhism and it’s Feng Shui use.8 Auspicious

Before anything else, allow me to share that the 8 Auspicious Objects are a series of different symbols that individually and collectively represents different forms of luck. The Eight Auspicious Objects, which is also called as the Eight Auspicious Symbols, appeared on many different types of Buddhist artifacts like paintings, carvings, etc. Each symbol on its own represents a feature of Buddhist teaching, and corresponds to a certain blessing. When shown together, they become some form a wish-fulfilling symbol of the different aspirations and also becomes a protective symbol.

The Eight Auspicious Objects are the parasol, the wealth vase, lotus, the conch shell, the mystical mystic knot (also known as the endless knot), a pair of golden fish, the victory banner, and the dharmachakra wheel.

The first of these 8 Auspicious Symbols is the Parasol.

As most people know, the parasol which is an umbrella used for protection from the heat and rays of the sun. The parasol is an ancient symbol of protection used by the royalty, thus it represents protection, which is bestowed upon the beholder of this auspicious object.

The Parasol is said to prevent sadness, anguish, and obstacles. Its secondary effect is to protect us from devious spiritual forces. Thus this is the object carried by one of the most powerful protection goddess of Buddhism – the WHITE UMBRELLA GODDESS.

The White Umbrella Goddess which is a powerful protection goddess holds the Parasol.

As it is use by royalty, it can also represent a good life blessed with wealth especially those who are venturing into new things.
