Do We Really Need Amulets? And Why Are REAL Amulets so Pricey?

Published Enero 31, 2017 by jptan2012

I’m a strong advocate of real amulets and a firm believer of one. In fact, a lot of times amulets has become my ‘security blanket’, something that I really need to be able to help me go through my day or week. In fact, last 2016 I greatly relied on amulets to protect myself from bad the effects of the bad stars.

But the question is whether do we really need amulets and why are real amulets so pricey?

Allow me to answer the first question first. Do we really need amulets?

To answer that question allows me to share you the story of somebody who may be familiar already to my readers. BM is a reader who became a friend. She is successful and regardless of what happens she seems always at peace. She may get frazzled a little but it doesn’t really last long. I have featured BM on this blog several times and it would be nice if you read some of the articles that I have written about her.

BM is successful, rich, businesswoman and sure enough she has the Vajrapani Ruel(1), the Surangama Mantra Amulet(1), the Illness Suppression Amulet(1), the Traditional Sutra Amulets(1) and a whole lot more. But truth be told, if you were to ask me what are the causes of her success, I wouldn’t put the use of amulets and Feng Shui as top.

So what do I think are the causes of her success?

First, her spirituality. I will not describe her as religious. At least, not in the sense of the word on how we describe it. She goes to church everyday, she hear mass everyday, she prays the rosary and do novenas everyday. In fact, she prays the rosary more than once everyday. And yes to some extent she can be described as religious, but she is really more than that. She is spiritual. Religion for her goes much more deeper that the essence of the word. And you know what is really fascinating about her? She never or seldom prays for herself. Her prayers are always for other people. With or without problems she goes to church and says her prayers, maybe even more so when everything is good. This is I think is the first ingredient of her success.

Second, she has a good heart and is very compassionate. She is compassionate; many times she has shared with me whether directly or indirectly how it is to be truly compassionate. And she really has a good heart. I know she gives to charity only because there are times that it is unavoidable for her to share it with me, which is done in the process of sharing with me some lessons. A truly compassionate person will always be blessed.

Third, she works really hard. She is intelligent, but more than that she works really hard. When I went to see her, one of her staff told me that her boss, BM, is really hardworking. In fact, she rarely goes home before sunset.

I think those are the main ingredients of her success. But more than her success she has a good family life also and I can see her husband is still ‘madly’ in love with her. I haven’t really had a long interaction with her children, but they seem to be respectful children. Mind you, they should already be in their rebellious stage.

The amulets for her are simply just an added protection or enhancer, and it is not the main ingredient of her good life. In a way, the amulets are simply an added sugar.

Note: Remember that Feng Shui consists of Heaven’s Luck, Man’s Luck and Earth’s Luck!

Allow me to share something else with you. The Buddhist monks or nuns rarely carry with them any amulets, aside from the powerful protective symbol Kalachakra. While I know that the Dalai Lama, and the Karmapa, while escaping the Chinese government did carry an amulet they seldom carry one all the time. The Dalai Lama carried an unknown amulet, and the Karmapa is said to have carried a Vajrapani Ruel(2) with him. But other than that, Buddhist monks and nuns don’t carry amulets with them, or if they do it is limited to one piece only. But, of course, most of them do meditations and chanting of mantras and reciting of sutras and do various rituals more than half of their day, everyday!

So to answer the question whether does we really need amulets, my response would be NO. It helps. It helps a lot. For some people and in some circumstances it may be essential, but if we get to the bottom of it, if we have a strong relationship with the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas, or Taoist Gods, or for Christians to your Lord, or for Islam’s to Allah then my answer is no. There is no denying that amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel(3) has helped a lot of people, but there are people who have survive without it. At the end of the day, have a strong faith, be truly compassionate, and work hard both for your career and for your relationships, and you’ll find things will be going smoothly.

Now, then the second question is why are real amulets really pricey?

First, take note of the keyword real. Real powerful amulets are seldom massed produce. Sure they can make more than 1,000 pieces per batch, it is seldom made out of a machine. They are always made by hand. A real amulet is made several days and will be mostly likely involves being made inside a temple, in front of Buddha or a Bodhisattva and should include some relics has part of the ingredient (like the Vajrapani Ruel4) or at the very least being consecrated in front of a relic. It is definitely made by a trained Buddhist Monk and cannot be made by ordinary practitioner. Sometimes, it will include some rituals outside the temple, but will definitely include a process being done inside the temple.

The Jatukam involves some rituals by the sea and mountains. And has a relic from the temple being included in the process. They make several thousand pieces by the batch and sometime take awhile before they can make the next batch. The Vajrapani Ruel(5) involves a relic of a high lama, and can never be made without it, so the last time it was made was a little more than half – a – century ago. This batch that we have now has about a little more than 1,000 pieces but it is considered limited because we don’t know when it is going to be made again. And it can only be made in certain places in Tibet.

The Illness Suppression Amulet(2), and the others are not as difficult to make, but still they are made or consecrated only by a lama that is recognized to have the capabilities of invoking the energies of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas to make the amulet holy and become an extension of the Buddha or Bodhisattva whose essence is being invoked.

Furthermore, while making it is customary to offer a fruits, vegetables, flowers, incense, and oil lamps. So when acquiring an amulet, this is what you pay for. But that’s not what makes it pricey.

It is also customary to give a ‘donation’ to the monk who made it. But this is a misnomer because in truth the money doesn’t go to the one who made the amulet but rather it goes to the temple, for the building of additional temples or halls, for images of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or for feeding the monks.

In the case, of the Vajrapani Ruel(6), Illness Suppression Amulet(3), the Avatamsaka Amulets(1) the Traditional Sutra Amulets(2) and other amulets, the money goes to the offerings of fruits, incense, vegetables, flowers, oil lamps, etc. But more than that it goes to acquiring of the image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva that goes to a hall in a temple that is being built in India (for the Vajrapani Ruel(7) a big chunk of the money goes back to Tibet in helping the people there who are oppressed by the Chinese government) and it becomes a perpetual offering of the person who acquired the amulet.

These are the things that make a real amulet quite pricey.

But again strictly speaking the amulets are not for sale. To understand this better please read my post called: THE EVOLUTION OF ACQUIRING AN AMULET.

Financial and Wealth Blessings From A Problematic Sale of A Property: A Personal Testimony About the Vajrapani Ruel and Other Amulets In the Words of A Reader!

Published Enero 20, 2017 by jptan2012

Busy is an understatement when it comes to describing my schedule the past few days or weeks. It’s been almost crazy, and it seems like I haven’t had any decent breakfast and lunch the past few days where I eat in the car while traveling one meeting to another.

On top of the meetings are the numbers of emails I receive both with the business, personal, and about Feng Shui or this blog. Friends and readers have been bugging to post something, but I really haven’t had time to write anything.

However, I’m really grateful with readers who take time out to share their personal testimonies and write it, because if you have notice, lately I have been posting testimonies only from readers who sent me messages either thru email or sms. And I’m thankful for those who really took time out to send me those sms and emails so I can post their stories here. The truth is there more testimonials than what I write but I simply cannot write the others because of the absence of an sms or email.

And so as I said, I’m extremely thankful to people who take time out to write me thru sms or email their personal testimonies. However, if you’re reader is like Angie, then that is heaven sent because I really don’t have to write anything anymore. She writes it so well, that I just have to copy – paste it here. And that is what I’m doing now. She actually had to send her email twice because I can’t seem to find the first email that she sent.

Like before I have taken the liberty to screen grabbed the actual email and post it here.

Do take time out to read her personal Vajrapani Ruel Miraculous Story because it is quite interesting. So without further ado, in her own words, here is Angie’s story.

Below is my email as promised. I did not include the part re my husband for privacy reasons so you can post this in your blog. Feel free to edit it if you wish so it will be shorter.

Hi JP,

After I got the Vajrapani Ruel from you last May of this year, the blessings it provided included harmony and love in my family life. (see A Reader Shares her Stories About the Vajrapani Ruel, Illness Suppression Amulet, Buddhism, and Other Things…) When one acquires the Vajrapani Amulet, known to be the most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon, it is expected to give protection and financial prosperity to the person who possesses it. Your previous posts show that those who acquired it experienced receiving millions of pesos from unexpected sources.

In your above post where you featured my email, I wrote that while I did not receive my millions yet, I experienced increased harmony and love in my family life and for that I am always grateful. I even asked you later on about the person who got the Vajrapani Ruel who asked you what he should do since the financial windfall he was expecting was not happening. You said that the person made a donation to a Buddhist temple, aside from going vegan and chanting.

I did not have much funds then, so I did not make any donation but I increased vegetables in my diet and chanted once in a while. I also stopped expecting the millions that I expected to receive and focused on other things that I love doing such as my crafting hobby and painting.

Last October, my broker based in our province called me and told me that another broker wanted to talk to me regarding a farmland owned by my siblings and me, that his client wanted to buy. I have been selling that land for 5 years to several buyers but no sale has occurred because our tenant who farms the land demands half of the sale proceeds or else he will block any sale transaction. (Our Land Reform Law provides lots of favors to farmers, and this is one of them.)

All of a sudden, the sale of my communal farmland owned by my siblings and me, pushed through. After 5 years of trying to sell it; a serious buyer came forward and made a 50% downpayment to me of several millions of pesos. I take this as the effect of the Vajrapani Ruel, although it took sometime to happen. I guess it did not happen immediately after I got the amulet because a lot of things had to be ironed out first.

What I can say is that I learned a lot of lessons on spirituality during this process, i.e. lessons in forgiveness, unconditional love, letting go and letting God, generosity, being positive and prayerful, etc. I realized that I did many things that most sellers will never do such as: the tenant was asking an additional P100,000 on top of the P1 million that I was paying him and he was making the process of his releasing the land to us owners very difficult. As a matter of fact, my broker began to hate him because for 5 years he had been approaching my broker, proposing all sorts of nefarious schemes because his ultimate goal is to get the land for himself and sell it. So, I immediately approved the additional amount without any hesitation. During their negotiation, when my broker was asking him to sign the Quit Claim document, I spent the day in prayer, meditation and chanting to the Bothisattva Vajrapani. I also tithed to the religious organization where I regularly give my tithe. At first, when I got the downpayment, I did not give my tithe thinking that I will tithe when I get the balance. But I tithed 10% of my share of the downpayment to send the message of my trust to the Universe, and acted as if the tenant has signed the Quit Claim document and that the sale would be closed easily and effortlessly. I also made a donation to your temple (10% of my 5% commission on the sale proceeds) and asked you and your Guru Lama for prayers for my intention. I also got my wish to acquire the Traditional Sutra Amulets, and three more amulets that were customized for me.

In the evening of that day and the following day, I did not get any call from my broker whether the deal had pushed through. I did not call her because I was afraid of a negative message from her. When I woke up that morning, I felt that I was going to be okay even if the deal did not push through. My fear of returning the downpayment to the buyer in case the tenant refused to sign the Quit Claim document, has disappeared and replaced by an overwhelming trust in God that He will provide as He has always provided for me in the past. I felt relieved; I felt light as angel wings, releasing all my fears and worries to God.

At noon, my broker called to say that I have nothing to worry about; the tenant finally signed the document. She added that she had a heart-to-heart talk with the tenant who poured out all his fears and problems with the land because he had developed a deep love and attachment to it, having worked on it for 40 years. In the end, they are now the closest of friends (BFF, as they say.)

Thank you, JP for enabling me to acquire the Vajrapani Ruel that started all the miraculous events in my life: prospering me, balancing all areas of my life, and many more unexpected great things. I also thank your Guru Lama who prayed, and I know, continues to pray for my family and me.

In light and love,

Angie

So there goes Angie’s story. If it’s not a miracle, I don’t what it is.

My next post will be about another testimony of a reader.

You can also read the following posts about the Vajrapani Ruel:

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.

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.

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:

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Use Smile As A Protection!

Published Oktubre 7, 2016 by jptan2012

smiling-womanAlmost 2 years ago, I wrote an article about how smiling brings good chi or energies. Now allow me to share with you a short post about how smiling can also deflect negative energies brought about unintentional or small intentional ill intentions of people.

If you think somebody is irritated with you and might have consciously or unconsciously sent you some negative energies by the way look at you, smile at those people, psychologically it will have an effect on them, but more than, smiling is a natural way of bringing up positive chi or energies and it should help deflecting those negative energies sent to you.

So remember just keep on smiling.
