The Creation of Wealth (4): After Several Failures and Disappointments A “Loser” Becomes One of the Richest Person in China!

Published Oktubre 3, 2017 by jptan2012

richmanI’m really quite surprise with how you, my readers, reacted to the powerful wealth amulet rediscovered by Guru Lama some 20 years ago. I’m talking about THE VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET. Some of my readers who have requested and acquired the said amulet professed that contrary to what I have written that it’s effect are gradual; they have actually experienced some miracles already. Personally, I would like to hold off from writing about their stories only because the effect is not yet very tangible, but rather they have seen the groundwork being laid out for their eventual financial success.

Guru Lama has stressed that the effect of the amulet, rather than instantaneous wealth luck, financial luck, or money luck, what the VAISRAVANA –DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET does it gives you the something more stable and organic, in this sense, it prepares you for a long term life of financial stability or wealthy-ness. Also unlike other amulets like the very powerful Vajrapani Ruel which pulls your money luck or wealth luck from the secondary paths base on your Bazi chart (Paht Chee chart), the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET pull your wealth luck from one of your secondary paths or if there is none it creates the wealth luck for you, thus I called this series THE CREATION OF WEALTH.

Today, allow me to share with you another wonderful story. This person is quite famous and I don’t have his permission to write his story so I will just use an alias and change by toning down some of the details of the story.

Let’s just call this person James. If there is such a thing as a “born – loser”, and technically speaking there is such a thing, then it is James. James was not a very healthy and he was also certainly not the most intelligent. He never excelled in school, and this may sound harsh, his look is not the most pleasant. It is like the world has conspired for him to be a loser.

It took him awhile to get a job, because unfortunately he was turned down even from the simplest of job. But everybody says he is a good person and so maybe because of that good karma, he met a person who saw his potential and hired him. This person is now one of the richest people in the world, who also happen to be younger than James.

This person taught James a lot of things, until this person decided to let him go so he can ‘spread his wings’. But he failed, and 7 businesses after he continues to fail. So much so that his mentor, who happens to be younger than him, got confused as to what is wrong with James.

Quite desperate himself, he told his brother about his misfortunes, and the weirdness of his situation, he is lucky enough to have found a friend who helps him but somehow he seem unable to make it on his own. His brother, who is a Sangha member of the temple where Guru Lama serves as an abbot, convinced him to see Guru Lama. When Guru Lama saw James and after he told Guru Lama of his concern, Guru Lama decided to make the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET, that at that time he just recently rediscovered. And so he made one for James.

Vaisravana Dzambhala Wealth Amulet

The Vaisavana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet has the consecrated copies of the mantras of King Vaisravana of the Four Heavenly Kings and the mantras of the Five Dzambhalas. Furthermore, there are some special ingredients in powder form that are included to add to the potency of the amulet. Before it is sealed it is furthered consecrated on the image of The Four Heavenly Kings.It is placed in a metal case, not just for its durability and protection but according to the Tantric Buddhist Scripture book where Guru Lama got the instructions for this amulet, it has to be placed in cylindrical metal case to symbolize continuity and stability.

Now James is one of the richest businessmen in China! More than that he is also one of the major stockholder and seats on the board of one of the biggest and most famous business that stemmed out from China! His mentor is now in some ways his equal! In a span of roughly 20 years, he was able to put up a business, join a corporation and become one of the most influential businessmen in China! If it’s a miracle from the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET, I don’t where is from then.

Barely a week after I have written about the powerful Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet and my email has been bombarded by queries and interest to get the wealth amulet.

As of now the writing of this post there are more than 30 people who has acquired the said powerful wealth amulet. Although I expect that it will take some time before we start getting testimonials about the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet only because, as Guru Lama explained, the said wealth amulet gives you the kind of wealth luck or money luck or financial luck that is more stable. If you don’t have wealth luck it creates it for you, and if you have wealth luck it help pull it and create sustainability and make it stable so that it becomes permanent, steadily increasing and more sustainable.

One of my readers who got the wealth amulet called me last Sunday, two days after getting her Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet and said that it is already working for her. I’m happy for her but have to caution her that maybe what she is having is not yet from the wealth amulet, only because there are 7 – Day Ritual before one can wear the amulet. She was only on her second day.

Note: THE VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET COMES WITH A SEVEN – DAY RITUAL PACK.

But there is no question that the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is a powerful amulet, because my Guru Lama has made this amulet several times for different Sangha member of the temple where he serves as the Chief Abbot.

One of those stories is about Shi Ai Mi (SAM). SAM is an employee of one of the Sangha member of the temple where Guru Lama serves as the Chief Abbot. Her boss is a rich businessman who is also a devout Buddhist.

Her boss is very fond of SAM, and maybe she also took pity on her because SAM is a hardworking young woman who is the sole breadwinner of her family. Both of her parents are now invalid. She sent some of her siblings to school, and she is striving to straighten up his brother who has fallen into bad company.

SAM’s employee is a believer of Feng Shui and out of pity she hired one of the most famous Feng Shui in Taipei to check out SAM’s bazi chart (paht chee chart). They were also told that no Feng Shui charm would be powerful enough to change her fate. SAM’s employee decided to bring her to see Guru Lama. She told Guru Lama about SAM’s bazi and also she told Guru Lama how she has become fond of SAM and considers her as her own grandchild and would love to see her fate change.

After doing some divination, Guru Lama realized that he could make the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet for her. She would have been the 7th person to receive the amulet. This was 9 years ago.

I have personally met SAM at the temple. In fact, she is the first person who mentioned to me about the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, although her Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet looks slightly different because Guru Lama used a different holder but still made of cylindrical metal.

Vaisravana Dzambhala Wealth Amulet

The Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet has the consecrated copies of the mantras of King Vaisravana of the Four Heavenly Kings and the mantras of the Five Dzambhalas. Furthermore, there are some special ingredients in powder form that are included to add to the potency of the amulet. Before it is sealed it is furthered consecrated on the image of The Four Heavenly Kings.It is placed in a metal case, not just for its durability and protection but according to the Tantric Buddhist Scripture book where Guru Lama got the instructions for this amulet, it has to be placed in cylindrical metal case to symbolize continuity and stability.

I met SAM at the temple during one of the retreats five years back. Although “useless” talking was not allowed inside the temple, we had an afternoon off, and while other went to different stores we decided to stay in a teahouse and we got to chat about how we met Guru Lama. She said when she was brought by her boss to see Guru Lama was the first time she met Guru Lama, and although she was Buddhist since birth, her Dharma practice became stronger after meeting Guru Lama.

It was then when she told me about the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet and she mentioned that it really reversed her fortune. She is now an entrepreneur and has 4 different companies. She truly believes that it was really the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas who thru the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet that she was given wealth luck.

She now pays it forward and sponsors some people to attend the retreat.

Why “Creation of Wealth”?: Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet Is An Amulet That Creates Wealth for You and Other Questions, Answered.

Vaisravana Dzambhala Wealth Amulet

The Vaisavana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet has the consecrated copies of the mantras of King Vaisravana of the Four Heavenly Kings and the mantras of the Five Dzambhalas. Furthermore, there are some special ingredients in powder form that are included to add to the potency of the amulet.

Barely three days since I have written about the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet and I have already been bombarded by various questions.

On this post, I will try some of your questions.

  1. How do you know that the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is effective if it is a fairly young amulet?

 

In the Buddhist tradition, every now and then a new amulet is discovered either thru accident or thru deep meditation of high lama. My Guru Lama rediscovered the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet about 20 years ago, and yes an amulet that is only a few decades old is considered young. However, as I said, this amulet was rediscovered rather than discovered by my Guru Lama. It was in a copy of a 1,200 year old Tantric Buddhist Scripture or book called “Maha Biddhuya Vaircona Abihidisambohi Vikurvitadthisnana Vaipulya Sudrentaha Raja Nama Dharma – Paryaya”. A modern print of a copy of this book is kept in the library of their temple and when he was meditating on how to help one of his Sangha members, he under deep meditative state saw a copy of this book. When he came up of his meditation he went to get the copy of the book and read it, it took him months before he came across the initiation on how to this amulet.

The book is 1,200 years old and so the amulet or its initiation must have been at the very least also 1,200 year old.

As to the question whether it is effective, my Guru Lama first made it about 2 decades ago, and it worked for the person he made it for. He has since then made it for several other people and according to Guru Lama wit works every time.

 

  1. Why wasn’t it famous or rediscovered sooner?

 

Amulets are unique in that sense, there are a lot of amulets, and amulets will be gone and resurface again. Nobody knows the exact explanation for this but Lama Zopa Rinpoche once said that amulets sometimes come and go depending on the collective need of the people. Meaning, there are amulets that we don’t collectively need before but we collectively need now. What determines this is basically the ruling energies of the period we are in.

 

  1. How is the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet different from other amulet?

 

I have written about this in the introductory post about the amulet. But to put it simply, other amulets pull your wealth luck base on the different paths of your pre – destiny, which contrary to popular there are actually more than one path to our destiny/destinies.

Here, allow me to quote again what I have written:

Guru Lama explains that the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is not an amulet that gives you a quick rich blessing. Although, he has seen this happened also. However, he said the main effect of the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is protection; protection that you don’t lose your wealth or money, but it is also helps you create your wealth by leading you to the right people and to the right sources. Guru Lama explains that in “Maha Biddhuya Vaircona Abihidisambohi Vikurvitadthisnana Vaipulya Sudrentaha Raja Nama Dharma – Paryaya”, the Tantric Buddhist Scripture or book where he found the guideline for the initiation of the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, it clearly states that this particular wealth amulet is an amulet that helps gather wealth sources for you, then helps you actualize your wealth, after which it will stabilize it and makes it a continuous process to help your wealth grow bigger and bigger. Thus it is imperative that the container is a cylindrical metal to represent continuity and stability. What does this mean? It means it is unique in such a way that it doesn’t pull out from your bazi or karma or own luck the money, but rather it creates wealth luck for you. Other amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel, which is mainly a protective amulet but has a very high percentage of wealth luck manifesting features, will bring wealth luck to you if you have wealth luck base on your bazi or karma. Our life are pre – determined, but this doesn’t mean that it is only pre – determined on a single path, it is pre – determined with various paths, the normal is 3 – 4 paths, sometimes more, but there are times that it is only 2. However, admittedly there is a single path is more dominant than all the other paths. And what the Vajrapani Ruel and the other amulet do is get your wealth luck from all the other paths. The Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is unique in such a way that even if there is no wealth luck in all the ‘paths’ of your life, it creates it for you. So in a way it changes your wealth destiny. So this amulet is very good for people who absolutely don’t have wealth luck.Nevertheless, for those who have wealth luck already but are unable to tap into it, the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet helps pull those luck for you, make it attainable and then creates a new path for you so that it becomes sustainable and continuous, it is not a “one time, big time” thing.

 

  1. What is consecrated and how is this different blessing?

 

Blessing is like asking the Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity to touch the amulet. Consecration is done with a special ritual where a high lama, and only a high lama can do this, will ask the Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity to leave an imprint of the Buddha’s (etc.) energy on the item being consecrated. There are also a limited number of items that can be consecrated. Also, although a blessing done by a monk is definitely better, all of us can do a blessing ritual, but with consecration only a high lama with the proper knowledge to do a consecration ritual can consecrate an item or amulet. Not all monks or lama can consecrate.

 

  1. Why is the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet being made available now?

 

Guru Lama felt this is the right time to make the amulet available because (1) he notice than more and more people are experiencing some financial difficulty; (2) there seems to be a pervading worldwide of energy of financial instability which is cause by different factors, one of which is also political instability.

 

  1. How can we request for the amulet?

 

Powerful and rare amulets are always difficult to come – by. In the old days, an amulet is given by the abbot to Sangha members (temple goers) who they feel are deserving of the amulet and who do work for the temple. The work may be in a form of monetary contribution, but in those times it is usually actual physical work, like helping to clean, cooking or donating vegetables and fruits. Because there must always be an exchange of energies as a representation of a person acquiring it.

These days, because of the changes in time, people are no longer to spend time in the temple to do work for them. And certainly almost nobody donates fresh fruits and vegetables. So a stipulated donation is normally requested. The said amount doesn’t come ‘cheap’ only because one in a way has to cover the cost of the materials used, the offering offered (flowers, fruits, vegetables, oil, incense, bottles of water, gold flakes, etc.) and it is customary to sort of impose that the person donate an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva for a temple. Technically speaking the amulet itself is not part of it, but there are some conditions for the exchange of energies to be fulfilled. Part of it also if for the feeding of the monks.

To understand this better please read my post called – THE EVOLUTION OF ACQUIRING AN AMULET.

 

  1. What’s inside the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet?

 

Inside the amulet are specially consecrated copies of the mantras of King Vaisravana of the Four Heavenly Kings, and of the Five Dzambhalas. Also inside are several holy ingredients in powder form. Before closing the amulet it is further consecrated the Four Heavenly Kings (to understand this better I suggest you read my post about the Four Heavenly Kings).

Putting it in a cylindrical metal holder or container is extremely important because it is specifically mentioned the initiation guidelines. This is to represent continuity and stability.

According to Guru Lama, it takes him 3 days to fully consecrate the mantras, while he can do several copies at the same time, the consecration before the closing of the amulet can only be done one at a time. Obviously, this is quite tedious so he can only make a few every now and then.

Lastly, the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet also comes with a 7 – Day ritual pack. You will have to do a short ritual everyday for 7 days before one can wear the amulet. This ritual is integral and an important part of the process for the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet reach it’s full potential in creating your wealth luck or in pulling your wealth luck.

The Creation of Wealth: Is Wanting to Get Wealthy A Sin and A Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet Miraculous Story Shared by My Guru Lama!

Published Setyembre 1, 2017 by jptan2012

wealthEncountering new amulets is always a unique and wonderful experience. Being one of the instruments to make the amulet available to some people is even a bigger blessing. Just recently another powerful wealth amulet was introduced in this blog, the amulet is called the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, and while it is a fairly new amulet to be read about, it is technically an old amulet since the instruction of it was found by my Guru Lama about 20 years ago in a Tantric Buddhist Scripture, whose original copy is said to have been written by high lama in Tibet approximately 1,200 years ago. This means, the amulet itself has been existing at the very least 1,200 years or maybe even more. There were several initiation for an amulet in the said Tantric Buddhist Scripture, and several are in use now, however, as to why this particular amulet has not been regularly used, nobody knows.

In the post called THE VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET: AN INTRODUCTION TO A VERY POWERFUL WEALTH AMULET, I wrote about how Guru Lama in a deep meditative state discovered the holy book (a copy of the original one) where the instruction and ritual in making this amulet was written. He also made this amulet for the first time for one of his Sangha member who at that time lives in poverty but is now one of the famous rich Singaporean businessmen.

Although that was the first time Guru Lama made the amulet, it was definitely not the last. From time to time, he will make the amulet for some people who badly need it. And today, I will share one of the stories whom Guru Lama has blessed by making this amulet for that person.

Chun Qiet (CQ) is a Malaysian – Chinese who was born in Singapore. His parents are both devout Buddhist and are Sangha members of the temple where Guru Lama serves as Abbot. His family would always go to temple and Guru Lama knows the family quite well. One day, tragedy strike, CQ’s family had an accident and both of CQ’s parents died.

CQ was left with his father’s business. But CQ was only 19 then and he is not familiar with the business. An uncle came to help, but after 4 years they soon found out that he is not capable of running his brother’s business and suggested to CQ to just sell the business. Since CQ is close to Guru Lama, he sought him out and asked for blessings. CQ confessed that if he doesn’t sell the business he might be left with nothing. He might have to sell their house. But at the same time he confessed that he doesn’t want to sell his father’s business because he feels that it is his father’s legacy.

Guru Lama doesn’t agree that CQ’s father’s legacy is the business because he believes the CQ’s father’s legacy is CQ himself, who has proven himself to be a responsible and good young man.

After that conversation that Guru Lama had with CQ, he decided to make the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet for CQ.

Note: That was not the second time Guru Lama made the amulet; he has made it for several other people.

After receiving the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, CQ was approached by an old friend of his father to ask about his welfare and the business. CQ opened up about his dilemma, and surprisingly this ‘uncle’ offered to invest in the business so CQ can help bring it back up, but on top of that he offered to help in the business. CQ’s uncle was initially reluctant because he was afraid that his brother’s friend would just take over the business. But somehow CQ realized that he got nothing to lose and he decided to just plunge into it, besides he felt that the amulet would help him.

Well, it did. That was 14 years ago. CQ is now again the sole owner of the business he inherited from his father. He has since made the business bigger. His father’s only guided him in the business for 3 years after which he gradually left the business until it was made official thru legal papers again 7 years after he invested and ‘meddled’ in the business. CQ has since then ‘bought him out’ of the business again, obviously this was done amicably. CQ firmly believes that it was because of the amulet that he was fortunate enough to be reacquainted with his father’s friend.

Vaisravana.

King Vaisravana a powerful Buddhist wealth god is the chief of the Four Heavenly Kings.

Guru Lama explains that the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is not an amulet that gives you a quick rich blessing. Although, he has seen this happened also. However, he said the main effect of the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is protection; protection that you don’t lose your wealth or money, but it is also helps you create your wealth by leading you to the right people and to the right sources. Guru Lama explains that in “Maha Biddhuya Vaircona Abihidisambohi Vikurvitadthisnana Vaipulya Sudrentaha Raja Nama Dharma – Paryaya”, the Tantric Buddhist Scripture or book where he found the guideline for the initiation of the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, it clearly states that this particular wealth amulet is an amulet that helps gather wealth sources for you, then helps you actualize your wealth, after which it will stabilize it and makes it a continuous process to help your wealth grow bigger and bigger. Thus it is imperative that the container is a cylindrical metal to represent continuity and stability. What does this mean? It means it is unique in such a way that it doesn’t pull out from your bazi or karma or own luck the money, but rather it creates wealth luck for you. Other amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel, which is mainly a protective amulet but has a very high percentage of wealth luck manifesting features, will bring wealth luck to you if you have wealth luck base on your bazi or karma. Our life are pre – determined, but this doesn’t mean that it is only pre – determined on a single path, it is pre – determined with various paths, the normal is 3 – 4 paths, sometimes more, but there are times that it is only 2. However, admittedly there is a single path is more dominant than all the other paths. And what the Vajrapani Ruel and the other amulet does is get your wealth luck from all the other paths. The Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is unique in such a way that even if there is no wealth luck in all the ‘paths’ of your life, it creates it for you. So in a way it changes your wealth destiny. So this amulet is very good for people who absolutely don’t have wealth luck. Nevertheless, for those who have wealth luck already but are unable to tap into it, the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet helps pull those luck for you, make it attainable and then creates a new path for you so that it becomes sustainable and continuous, it is not a “one time, big time” thing.

Inside the metal container are the consecrated mantras of King Vaisravana, the chief of the Four Heavenly Kings, and a known wealth god, with the consecrated mantras of the Yaksa (also spelled as Yaksha) wealth gods: Green Dzambhala, White Dzambhala, Yellow Dzambhala, Red Dzambhala, and Blue Dzambhala/Black Dzambhala!

Note: Dzambhala is also spelled as Dzambala, Jambhala, Jambala, Zambhala, Zambala.

The mantras were printed under strict Mahayana guidelines found in the Tantric Buddhist book and then consecrated under strict Mahayana – Hinayana initiations. It was then sealed under special prayers and mantras that a high lama like Guru Lama can chant.

Some of you might be asking why create a wealth amulet. That is because whether we accept it or not we are living in a time where there is a lot of uncertainty and money problems or financial problems seems to becoming more common. We all want and need financial blessings or money blessings and there is nothing wrong with it. It boils down to the intent and purpose; those are the things that determine the goodness or evilness of having money.

Majority of my readers are Christians, which is ironic because a lot of those attack my site as evil are also Christians, and I’m sure a lot of you will be asking whether isn’t this bad because ‘money is the root of evil’.

Money is not the root of evil. Money is simply that money, it’s a tool. It’s just like a computer or an iron or a chair or car, how we use it makes it evil or good. We are the root of evil, but we are also definitely the root of goodness. What we make of it determines whether it becomes evil or not.

To further answer whether money is bad, or wanting to be wealthy is bad or not, allow me to share something with you.

There is a silent but big number of theologist and scholars who believes that Christianity actually evolved from Buddhism. I have written about this in the past but to briefly put it, Christianity existed about 500 to 1000 years after Buddhism. And the similarities are simply astounding. For example, the Holy Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit are very similar to the concept of the Holy Trinity of Buddhism which consists of Amitabha Buddha (who even is not considered as Shakyamuni Buddha’s father is actually an ‘older’ Buddha and was the one who sent Bodhisattva Vajrapani to protect Sakyamuni Buddha on the eve of his full enlightenment), Buddha Sakyamuni (who is the Buddha of our world, who became human first and it has to be noted, if there is a tempting of Jesus Christ, there was also a tempting of Sakyamuni Buddha on the eve of his enlightenment), and Bhaysajyaguru Buddha or better known as Medicine Buddha (which is the only celestial Buddha, a Buddha that didn’t assume a human physical form). As you can see one can see that here this three Buddhas is similar to the Holy Trinity of the Christians.

Furthermore, the concept of the Holy Mother or the Virgin Mother can be akin to Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara who became Kuan Yin Bodhisattva. Even the white dress with the veil is very much similar. Not to mention her ascension is very similar to the ascension story not of Bodhisattva Kuan Yin but rather of Buddha Sakyamuni’s earthly mother.

Note: Bodhisattva Kuan Yin is also called, as already mentioned Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva and the other names are Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva, Quan Shi Yin Bodhisattva, Quan Yin Bodhisattva, Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva, Guan Yin Bodhisattva, Bodhisattva Chenrezig, or Kannon Bodhisattva.

Not only that, the concept of Second Coming is very similar to the concept of the coming of the next Buddha, which is Maitreya Buddha. I can go on and on about the other similarities but I think that is a topic for another post.

I say this because I find it surprising the despite of the many similarities, one of the major difference is how one looks at money or wealth. Most Christians whether Catholic or otherwise are not comfortable talking about wanting to have more money or increasing their wealth. That is despite of the fact churches are quite rich. In Buddhism, there is nothing wrong in wanting more money or having the desire to increase wealth. In fact, Buddhism teaches that wealthy people have good karma, it may or may not be from this life but it can be from past life or past lives. Also, being wealthy makes it easier to practice Dharma and to become kinder and helpful to other people. I’m not saying that it is a prerequisite, but what I’m saying is that it is a good tool to make oneself become more compassionate and be helpful.

Allow me to share a story that supposedly happened thousand of year ago:

Lama Atisha, the revered lama and Mahasiddha, came across an old man, dying of starvation in Bodghaya. Lama Atisha offered his own flesh, cut from his body, to save the old man. But the old man said, “How can I eat a monk’s flesh?” Lama Atisha felt helpless in the face of this suffering. In Lama Atisha’s moment of despair, Chenrezeig (Guan Yin), the Compassionate One, appeared to Atisha and said, “Out of my eye, will manifest Jambhala, the Buddha of wealth, to help suffering beings. I shall alleviate their poverty so they will not be distracted from practicing the good heart.”

This is just one version of the timeless story of Jambhala, a “wealth deity,” a profoundly simple story that illustrates why wealth is not necessarily the root of all evils. Again, I would like to bring your attention to the statement that says: I SHALL ALLEVIATE THEIR POVERTY SO THEY WILL NOT BE DISTRACTED FROM PRACTICING THE GOOD HEART. For me this is very important.

Note: The use of Buddha of Wealth is debatable whether it was really the term use. However, some scholars argue that sometimes Buddha is use every time there was selfless act done out of extreme compassion.

Buddhism is all about non – materialistic, and I think it’s teaching about wealth and being non – materialistic perfectly compliment each other. If you are wealthy and is non – materialistic then you have practiced or is practicing one of the greatest dharma.

When Jonathan Ciliberto, a famous writer and critic of books especially Buddhist books, reviewed the book “A Shower of Jewels: Deities of Wealth” he wrote that “a lack of money is an obstacle to practice” to dharma or Buddhism. He further stated that, “Poverty itself, can make practice difficult. It is difficult enough to find birth in the precious human realm, our opportunity to practice the Dharma, without adding to suffering with the burden of poverty. One of the great perfections of practice is generosity—helping all sentient being. Instead of thinking of wealth as selfish (or feeling guilt about its accumulation), we should instead consider the Buddhist concept that wealth can be a virtuous means to help others.”

In Christianity or even in the West (generally speaking) there is some stigma attached to the idea of accumulating wealth when discussing spirituality and generosity.

Venerable Zasep Rinpoche, during a teaching at Gaden Choling explained that in eastern countries wealth practice is not frowned upon as it might be in western cultures. (I would like to clarify that eastern here refers to non – Christian countries). He further added that while meditating on and trying to accumulate wealth might be perceived as the opposite of generosity, as always with Buddhist philosophy, it comes down to intention. If the intention is to achieve virtuous deeds like generosity, healing, relieving the suffering of others and oneself, then wealth practice and accumulation is a meritorious deed.

Vaisravana Dzambhala Wealth Amulet

The Vaisavana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet has the consecrated copies of the mantras of King Vaisravana of the Four Heavenly Kings and the mantras of the Five Dzambhalas. Furthermore, there are some special ingredients in powder form that are included to add to the potency of the amulet. Before it is sealed it is furthered consecrated on the image of The Four Heavenly Kings.It is placed in a metal case, not just for its durability and protection but according to the Tantric Buddhist Scripture book where Guru Lama got the instructions for this amulet, it has to be placed in cylindrical metal case to symbolize continuity and stability. Approximately 1.5 inches in height.

In the book “World of Transformation: Tibetan Art of Wisdom and Compassion”, which was authored by Marilyn Rhie, David Jackson and Robert A.F. Thurman, the father of Hollywood actress Uma Thurman who happens to be a good friend of Dalai Lama and Tibetan Buddhism scholar and professor, it stated that, These deities of prosperity are… benevolent, and are helpful to spiritual people by supporting the educational purpose of life in the Buddhist perspective.”

It makes sense, if we live in poverty and if we constantly look for money for our day to day survival, we won’t be able to progress in our spiritual growth and more importantly we are unable to help other.

The purpose of practicing wealth rituals or wearing or carrying amulets with high wealth effect like the Vajrapani Ruel, Surangama Mantra Amulet or the Traditional Sutra Amulets or wealth amulets like the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is mainly to provide the means to help oneself and others. Its purpose is not to live a life of luxury but it’s to remove the obstacle to the spiritual practice like eliminating poverty, which is certainly a hindrance.

This reminds me of people like Nanay Socorro Ramos (of the famous National Bookstore) or Bill Gates, or some of my readers like the one in Malaysia or Davao (BM) who despite of being really rich, they maintain a humble and most of all they benefit other people with their wealth. They use their money to help other people.

Now is there anything wrong in wanting to get rich, have money and become wealthy? Well, Buddhism says if the intention is pure, then there is nothing wrong with it.

The Four Heavenly Kings: Getting to Know Four Powerful Buddhist Gods that Helps Bestow Wealth, Success, Peace, and Protection.

Published Agosto 30, 2017 by jptan2012

Today is a very good day and an exciting day (please note that actual writing and date of posting are usually different from each other) for me and in a way for my regular readers and believers of Feng Shui and Buddhism it should be a good day for you also, because today is the day I was told by my Guru Lama to share with you about the Four Heavenly Kings.four heavenly kings

The Four Heavenly Kings has been featured in numerous Buddhist Sutras, one of which is in The Sutra of the Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva; Earth Store Bodhisattva is also known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Pu Sa. In this particular sutra, Sakyamuni Buddha (The Historical Buddha) directly addressed the Four Heavenly Kings to help propagate the Sutra of the Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva. They were also prominently mentioned in the highly revered Golden Light Sutra.

It is said that those who recite the Golden Light Sutra will be protected by the Four Heavenly Kings themselves. Furthermore, those who recite and keep the Lotus Sutra will also be protected by the Four Heavenly Kings.

From this we can see that the Four Heavenly Kings are powerful protector Buddhist gods, however, as you read on you will that they don’t only protect us but they each also have a specific function which is different from each other.

At this point, I would like to clarify that the Four Heavenly Kings are gods in the Buddhist pantheon; it means they are not yet Bodhisattvas or Buddhas, and they serve the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas.

Again, The Four Heavenly Kings are Buddhist gods, each of who watches over their assigned cardinal direction of the world. The cardinal directions are East, West, North, and South. In Chinese they are originally known or called as “Fēng Tiáo Yǔ Shùn” (風調雨順), which literally translates to “Good climate”, but in the translation in the Chinese version of sutras they are called “Sì Dà Tiānwáng” (四大天王) which means “Four Great Heavenly Kings”.four heavenly kings 2

In most Chinese Buddhist Temples, one will normally see the THE HEAVENLY KINGS HALL. This is usually one of the first most majestic halls one will see.

The Four Heavenly Kings resides in Mt. Sumeru, a celestial and cosmic mountain where the heavens are. They are also the protector of the world and they fight evil, each of the 4 Heavenly Kings are able to command a legion of supernatural creatures to protect the Dharma or people who follow the Dharma.

Each of the Four Heavenly Kings serves Sakra, the of the devas (gods) of the Trayastrimsha Heaven. In Buddhism there are many heavens, and the Tranyastrimsha Heaven is the heaven nearest to our world, which is called Jambvudpiva is Buddhist sutras.

Although they are more commonly called as the Four Heavenly Kings, each one of them has a name and their specific directions and functions. Allow me to introduce to you the Four Heavenly Kings:

VAISRAVANA (He Who Hears Everything)Vaisravana.

  • Is the chief of the Four Heavenly Kings and is the main protector of the cardinal direction North. He is sometimes likened to Bodhisattva Kuan Yin (also spelled or called as Quan Yin, Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Quan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon, Chenrezig, Bodhisattva of Compassion, Goddess of Mercy) whose literal translation is THE WHO HEAR THE CRIES OF THE WORLD.
  • Vaisravana is also known as Kubera, Namtose (Namthose), Vessavana, Thao Kuwen, Wetsawan, Wetsuwan, Wéthawún Nat Min, Duō Wén Tiānwáng.
  • Vaisravana is the rule of water or rain, which is also the element that represents wealth or money. The umbrella or the pagoda are his symbolic weapons. Vaisravana is considered as a very powerful god of wealth.
  • In fact, Vaisravana rules over the famous gods of weatlh, which are the Five Dzambhalas (also spelled as Dzambhala, Dzambala, Jambala, Jambhala, Zambhala, Zambala) namely Red Dzambhala, Yellow Dzambhala, White Dzambhala, Black or Blue Dzambhala, and Green Dzambhala. He rules over the Dzambhalas amongst other Yaksha (also spelled as Yaksa) which are generals of the heavenly realm.
  • Vaisravana is often associated with the colors yellow and green.

  • Virudhaka is often associated with the color blue.
  • Symbol of Virudhaka: Sword

DHRTARASTRA (He Who Upholds the Realm)Dhrtarastra

  • Is the king that rules over East. He is also considered as the God of Music.
  • His symbolic weapon is a stringed instrument called pipa.
  • It is said that Dhrtarastra uses music to convert all sentient beings to Buddhism. While all of the Four Heavenly Kings are harmonious and compassionate, Dhrtarastra is considered to be a god that helps promotes harmony and compassion.
  • Dhrtarastra is also known as Dhrutharashṭa, Thao Thatarot, Daddáratá Nat Min, Chí Guó Tiānwáng, Jikoku-ten, Jiguk-cheonwang, Yülkhorsung.
  • Dhrtarastra rule over the gandharvas, which are male nature spirits that has superb heavenly and celestial musical skills. They are part animal usually a bird or a horse, and acts as messenger between gods and humans.
  • Dhrtarastra are often associated with the color white.
  • Symbol of Dhrtarastra: Pipa
  • Cardinal Direction: East.

VIRUPAKSA ( He Who Sees All)Virupaksa

  • Is the king that rules over the West. He is considered as the one who sees everything that happens in the Dharma world.
  • His symbolic weapons are snake or a red cord that is representative of a dragon.
  • It is said the Virupaksa watches over us in the sky, and that when we solemnly call on him in time of danger, he will guard and protect us. And if you are not Buddhist and for some reason knows a lot of Buddhism, it is said that it Virupaksa is the one who feeds you these informations.
  • Virupaksa is also known as Virūpakkha, Virūpaksha, Thao Wirupak, Virúpekka Nat Min, Guăng Mù Tiānwáng, Kōmoku-ten, Gwangmok-cheonwang,

  • Virupaksa is often associated with the color red.
  • Symbols of Virupaksa: Snake, Stupa, Pearl.
  • Cardinal Direction: West

According to Guru Lama praying to the Four Heavenly Kings will provide us with wealth and prosperity (thru King Vaisravana), success and progress (thru King Virudhaka), peace and harmony (thru King Dhrtarastra) and, good health and protection from danger (thru King Virupaksa). Placing their images at home also serves as one of the most powerful protection amulet one can have.

Guru Lama shares with me a story about how when he was assigned by the Dalai Lama to leave Dharamsala, India to help spread Buddhism and build temple in other parts of Asia, he has personally tapped into the blessings and power of the Four Heavenly Kings.

That was a few decades ago and when he left India, he was only given small amount money to travel and spread the Dharma and eventually build a temple. Guru Lama said he was a little apprehensive because a few years back they just left Tibet because of Chinese oppression, and when he was asked to leave again to spread the Dharma, he was apprehensive and really nervous even though he was excited and felt honored to be entrusted with the task of spreading the Dharma.

A few months before leaving India, he started preparing himself physically and mentally to this overwhelming task. He would always meditate on the teaching of the different sutras and would always draw strength from Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara (aka Kuan Yin, Quan Yin, Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Quan Shi Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Chenrezig, Kannon) and Bodhisattva Vajrapani. One night in his sleep he received a vision that Vajrapani Bodhisattva visited him and that he was shown the images of the Four Heavenly Kings. Upon waking up he knew then that he would need the help of the Four Heavenly Kings to help progress in his endeavor.

This totally make sense, because if you go back to the description of the Four Heavenly Kings, he will need wealth and prosperity to help build a temple, success and progress so that people will see the good side of what he was about to do, peace and harmony so that he can transmute that feeling to the people around him, good health for this overwhelming task, and protection to ensure that he doesn’t come to harm’s way in spreading the Dharma.

And so my Guru Lama started worshipping and praising the Four Heavenly Kings by making offerings to them and by chanting the mantras of the Four Heavenly Kings. He also vigorously recited The Golden Light Sutra, and The Lotus Sutra (full title is called “Sūtra on the White Lotus of the Sublime Dharma”). And the rest is history. According to Guru Lama he was able to become an instrument into building a temple and building a Sangha (Buddhist community) with relative ease. Money for the temple just kept on pouring in.

Note: To this day Guru Lama still actively participate in building temples. The stipulated donation from the amulets goes to the feeding of the monks or building temples or making of images of Buddhas or Bodhisattvas.

And so today, again for the first time, I want to share with you a powerful mantra that will help you attract wealth and prosperity, success and progress, peace and harmony, lastly, good health and protection, you can recite the mantras of each of the Four Heavenly Kings.

Here are the mantras of each of the Four Heavenly Kings:

  1. For Wealth and Prosperity recite the Mantra of King Vaisravana: OM VAISRAVANA YE SOHA
  2. For Success and Progress in Life recite the Mantra of King Virudhaka: OM VIRUDHAKA KUMBHANDADHIPATA YE SOHA
  3. For Peace and Harmony recite the Mantra of King Dhrtarastra: OM DHRTARASTRA RALAPRAVADHAHA SOHA
  4. For Good Health and Protection recite the Mantra of King Virupaksa: OM VIRUPAKSA NAGA DHIPATA YE SOHA

All People in the Leadership Position Needs the Help of the Historical Fundamental Teacher, Buddha Sakyamuni!

Published Agosto 18, 2016 by jptan2012

Buddha-Shakyamuni-3-transparent-800x803The first time I wrote about Sakyamuni Buddha (also known as The Historical Buddha, and The Fundamental Teacher) is in a post called – BASIC BUDDHISM (2): THE THREE JEWELS – BUDDHA, DHARMA, & SANGHA – but in so many ways, it was really a short article meant to be a very basic introduction.

Writing about the life of Siddhartha Gautama (also spelled as Siddartha / Siddharta) is a very big task, because there is just simply a lot of information about Him, and I really don’t know how to write about Him in this blog.

Today is a special day because this is my 700th article, and I thought I’d write about Buddha Sakyamuni (also spelled as Shakyamuni) because in a way I have reached a milestone. However, I still don’t know how to write about his life, but instead I will write about one of the most frequent question people ask me: If Amitabha Buddha is known for protection and Medicine Buddha is known for health and wealth, what is Sakyamuni Buddha known for?

First, all Buddhas or Bodhisattvas are capable of doing all things, it’s just that they have certain vows or certain character drawn from vows or life as written in the sutra that makes them known for certain virtues.

Buddha Sakyamuni is the Historical Buddha because He is the Buddha who manifested in human form in this lifetime. Amitabha Buddha also manifested in human in a different lifetime. And in the next lifetime Bodhisattva Maitreya is the one foretold to be the Buddha who will manifest in a human form. Anyway, Buddha Sakyamuni is also called the Fundamental Teacher because all the Buddhist teachings that we know now and all the Buddhist practices that we know now came from Him. It is in this regard that Buddha Sakyamuni is said to bring about wisdom for all of us. But more than that His wisdom is especially for leaders who lead their country, city, business, or even department.

In a hostile environment, having the Vajrapani Ruel to tap into the power of Bodhisattva Vajrapani is important to give us a winning edge. But pairing the Vajrapani Ruel with the power of Buddha Sakyamuni, will help give you wisdom how to diffuse the hostile environment. Buddha Sakyamuni, when He was still in human form also managed several Sangha communities, each Sangha community consists of about 2,000 Bhiksus (monks) and several more Bhiksunis (Buddhist nuns) and most of these communities also have Upasakas (male Buddhist students – not monks) and Upasikas (female Buddhist students – not nuns). And he is able to manage all of them all of these Sangha communities without having major concerns or problems. So when we tap into the power of Sakyamuni Buddha (Shakyamuni Buddha) we are able to tap into His power of managing a community (in present life businesses, departments, etc.) in a way we are able to gain respect and love but at the same time leadership powers.

Furthermore, Sakyamuni Buddha in so many ways is also a diplomat. Politicians (Emperors, etc.) would go to Him and seek His advice, more than that He has curbed some wars and conflicts. This shows that when we tap into His power we are able to become diplomat and deal with high statesmen with confidence.

The best way to tap into the power of Sakyamuni Buddha and honor Him is by chanting His mantra, wearing His image, and more also lighting incense and making offerings in front of his image.

The mantras of Sakyamuni Buddha are:

OM MUNI MUNI MAHĀ MUNI YE SOHA

NAMO PEN SHI SHI CHIA MUNI FO

Basic Buddhism 5: The Evolution of Acquiring An Amulet

Published Disyembre 31, 2015 by jptan2012

Have you wondered why when ‘buying’ an amulet Buddhist, especially Chinese Buddhist, will always use the word ‘invite’ instead of buy?

Is it only because most Buddhists are uncomfortable with the thought of paying for an amulet?

The truth is there is a deeper explanation to this.

In the olden times, an amulet was never bought; a person can only acquire an amulet if a Buddhist monk or when a person who has it has chosen a person to receive it. For amulets that are kept in the temple and are to be given to the people, they will have to express to the Buddhist monk or to the abbot or abbess of the temple their desire to invite the said amulet. The abbot or abbess together with the senior Buddhist monks and nuns will either then do an assessment whether the person is worthy of receiving the said amulet. Usually the person will be assessed as to whether they are good member of the Sangha (community of the Buddhist society), and whether they have sincerely contributed to the temple. Contribution here is not just about money, although it may include it in form of donation to the temple, but more importantly, how much they have contributed in terms of service to temple. For example, do they volunteer in the activities of the temple, do they help clean the temple, do they make offerings of flowers, do they help cook food for the Buddhist monks or nuns or even the Sangha? Since the Buddhist monks or nuns are familiar with the members of the Sangha they are able to make the assessment base on quality of the offering and not quantity, meaning, they are able to assess appropriately. They are not judging base on the quantity of the offering but rather quality.

Allow me to explain the last few statements further. Buddhist Student A and Buddhist Student B are members of a temple. Buddhist Student A, goes to the temple every afternoon and cleans the temple for 3 hours. Buddhist Student B, goes to the temple every afternoon and helps do chores for 30 minutes. But Buddhist Student A is a rich person who doesn’t do anything and Buddhist Student B is a poor peasant who has to work for 10 hours a day. So off hand, you’ll see that Buddhist Student B has so much more ‘quality’ in his/her service offering. Of course, Buddhist monks and nuns takes into consideration a lot more factors, but off hand as an example, I hope what I illustrated is clear.

So it doesn’t mean that when a person donated 10 gold coins, he will get the amulet. He may have only donated 1 silver coin, but taking into consideration all the other factors he might be so much worth it.

Sometimes, the process is done through a divination. This is especially true if there is only a single or limited amulet and several people have expressed interest to invite the amulet, and after an assessment several people were proven to be worthy. I remember, several years back, I was still a young boy then, there’s a special amulet that is to be given to a member of the Sangha. The temple has pre – selected possible recipient, and my mom was one of them. They were asked to go to the temple at a certain date and time, and there was a ritual that was made to whom should the amulet be given. My mom got it.

I have to repeat, when I said quality it doesn’t mean also which one has given nicer things, but what is being assessed is sincerity and capability of the person.

Surangama Mantra Amulet N

Pure Land Buddhists believes that when you wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet, heavenly beings that has an affinity with you will hover over you.

As time goes – by, and the world has become more urbanized, this kind of process slowly changed, because the norm now is that every adult goes to work. The world has been interconnected and it has also become extremely competitive. We are all so busy earning a living. And so, acquiring an amulet has change also. Now, especially, in the last 15 to 20 years, inviting an amulet by way of paying for it has become acceptable provided there is some guideline.

The money is used as a donation for the consumerable materials used. Not the materials that are holy. For example, in the case of the Vajrapani Ruel (1) or Surangama Mantra Amulet (1), what were factored in the ‘price’ are the materials that can be paid for and not the holy materials like relics, etc.

The amount reflects the cost of transportation. A stipulated amount to be used for donation either to a temple or monastery, like in the case of the Surangama Mantra Amulet (2), the amount is used to build a temple. Or as an offering of an image of a Buddha, which is the case for the Vajrapani Ruel (2) and now the Illness Suppression Amulet. People are having easier access now to these amulets, but because they no longer serve the Sangha or community of Buddhist students or followers, they are requested to give a stipulated amount in return.

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.

In some cases, some of these amulets are still distributed the old way and that would largely depend on the decision of the Buddhist monk in charge of the said amulet. For example, the Vajrapani Ruel (3) is not available thru a donation in Tibet and Nepal, no matter how much money you have you won’t be able to acquire it. You will have to be an active member of the Sangha and has made contribution either of food or service before you are even considered to possibly have it. The first few months when I wrote about the Vajrapani Ruel (4), I was not allowed by my Guru Lama to invite the Vajrapani Ruel (5) even if I was willing to give the stipulated amount for the cost of inviting it. It was only after several months that he decided to give one to me for free, as part of my service, but I still opted to give the stipulated amount for the cost of inviting the Vajrapani Ruel (6).

The Illness Suppression Amulet, which was specially made by my Guru Lama for the ruling Illness Star this year, is the same, the amount stipulated for its invitation will be partially donated to feeding of some monks, and making an image of a small Buddha or part of a bigger Buddha.

But a lot of the Buddhist monks still prioritized those who have sincerely contributed to the Buddhist community over those who can just simply pay for it. My Guru Lama although forced to accept the stipulated amount of donation for the invitation of some amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel (7) and Illness Suppression Amulet, he still follows the age – old tradition of distributing amulets, especially when said amulets are extremely limited.
