sutra-amulets

These are just one copy each of the very limited copies sent to me by my Guru Lama of the THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA, THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA. Sutras are also used as very powerful amulets, that is why you will often old Buddhist Chinese houses has a copy of the Sutra on their altar though they might not be reciting the sutra itself.

A lot of people are in search for miracles or a miracle, but the truth is miracles happen more often than we realized, sometimes it is simply a matter of really opening ourselves up to it.

Today, allow me to share another wonderful story about a miracles experienced by a reader about the Traditional Sutra Amulet. Daniel or Niel is a 46 – year – old husband and businessman. He contacted me about 2 months ago and requested for the Traditional Sutra Amulet (TSA).

According to Niel, he needs the TSA because he is at the crossroad of his business. For it to survive, he needs to be able to expand and land bigger projects. However, he is still relatively known to focus on a certain industry, and while this has become his greatest strength, it is also his biggest weakness, because he is unable to expand to other industry. In this case to the sector of servicing the malls.

But aside from this, he also mentioned to me about his son who had a freak accident in school and became paralyzed. The doctor said that his son still has a chance to walk again but that it will be a long tedious process. He will need therapy everyday. The sad thing his son doesn’t seem to be responding well to the therapy.

And so he got the TSA, in his case he got the Avatamsaka Sutra Amulet, and that was about 2 months ago.

avatamsaka-sutra

One of 5 copies of the Avatamsaka Sutra (Kuan Yin Bodhisattva Chapter) that’s available here in the Philippines. Note: I have since received a few more copies of the Avatamsaka Sutra.

And I just got an email from him. You can read what he has to say about his miraculous experience about the TSA. Putting it here verbatim, I just put a translation at the parts where he wrote in Filipino.

Dear JP!

Do you still remember why I got the Sutra amulet from you?

I was wishing that I’d get to land an important business deal worth millions of money. You see I got it this morning! Siyempre ikaw una kong naisip at naisip ko agad na talagang miracle ito because ang laki ng kalaban namin dito. (OF COURSE, YOU’RE THE FIRST PERSON I THOUGHT ABOUT AND I ALSO KNEW RIGHT AWAY THAT THIS IS A MIRACLE BECAUSE WE ARE UP AGAINST A BIG COMPANY.) But my company was chosen and more than that the bigger miracle is our accreditation to this company was fast tracked so we can work on the project right away. Alam mo naman mahigpit ang ** so dapat matinding accreditation process (AS YOU KNOW [NAME OF COMPANY – WHICH I DELETED) HAS STRICT GUIDELINES SO WE HAVE TO GO THROUGH SOME STRICT GUIDELINES), pero (BUT) was told it was (NAME OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE COMPANY – I PURPOSELY DELETED HER NAME) herself who said that we should be fast tracked so we can work on everything ASAP.

I have told you before that this is a project that I need to help me survive in the industry and also to help for the expenses for my son’s therapy. Malaki ito (THIS IS BIG) and I’m so happy that I got it. On top of that, my son’s response to his therapy sessions is so much better since we got the sutra amulet. Sabi yan ng doctor and therapist niya. Hindi naman nila alam na may amulet kami (THAT’S ACCORDING TO HIS DOCTOR AND THERAPIST AND THEY DON’T EVEN KNOW THAT WE HAVE AN AMULET). I initially found the sutra amulet to be quite expensive, but I now know that it is nothing compared to the blessing that I got.

Thank you talaga. Let’s have lunch soon, my treat para mapasalamatan ka naman namin mag asawa ng maayos(SO WE CAN THANK YOU PROPERLY).

If you don’t think this is a miracle then I don’t know what is.

Financial Luck Received After Receiving the Vajrapani Ruel and Descendant Luck Activated by the Traditional Sutra Amulet: Two Different Personal Testimonies of A Reader and How She Still Saw the Simple Miracle As A Miracle!

Published Marso 20, 2017 by jptan2012

One of the very first Vajrapani Ruel miracles I shared on this blog is about JS’s story. If you’ll remember, JS is a man born out of wedlock and because of this he had problem claiming his inheritance, but after getting the Vajrapani Ruel he was able to claim his share of the inheritance. You can read more about his story in the post called – The Vajrapani Ruel Stories (2): How A Man Got His Land Back After A 20 – Year – Old Legal Bottle. Would you believe that JS’s story was written more than 2 years ago!

JS’s cousin shared today’s story to us from his mother side. As you may have expected after getting his miracle, JS’s relatives naturally requested for the Vajrapani Ruel, not all of them was able to get one, but Ailyn (her real nickname) was one of the few who was able to get it.

Ailyn never had any outrageous miracle like winning lotto or getting some money miraculously, but that didn’t stop her from seeing her miracle. She has mentioned to me before about her miracle, but I have never written about it. But right now, another miracle has started to happen, and that is her husband who is staunch anti – Feng Shui person is starting to believe in Feng Shui because of the simple financial luck / wealth luck / money luck that they are getting. Although technically speaking the Vajrapani Ruel is a Buddhist amulet, consecrated and made under the energies of the Buddhist bodhisattva, Bodhisattva Vajrapani.

But what is even more amazing is that Ailyn aside from her financial luck also directly got her wish although the wish is really for somebody else.

Ailyn has two children. One son and a daughter. The son has been married for 6 years now, and he and her wife has been trying to get pregnant for 5 years now (or maybe 6 years). But descendant luck seems to be an elusive luck for them and they are unable to conceive. They both live in the US and out of desperation decided to get an artificial insemination but still using the sperm of Ailyn’s son and eggs of Ailyn’s daughter – in – law.

Ailyn although wants them to be happy was a little uncomfortable with the said process and thinks that it’s a natural thing. And so she decided to call me and her instinct told her to get a copy of the Traditional Sutra Amulet (TSA), in this case she got the Avatamsaka Sutra. She is getting this to wish that her daughter – in – law got pregnant. She just told me on the phone that she did send her son and daughter – in – law the said TSA.

Anyway, allow me to post here the sms of Ailyn. Read it and let Ailyn tell you her miracles.image1

Aside from the fact that she got her wish and son’s and daughter – in – law’s wish coming to fruition, she really did see that sometimes miracles are simple and gradual. She and to some extent her husband believes that the Vajrapani Ruel is the one gradually increasing their financial luck.

Marital Problem Fixed, Financial Problem Solved with the Unexpected Coming In of a Huge Amount of Money / Problem with Bank Loan Reversed: Two Personal Testimonies of Two Readers with Two Different Sources of Miracles! – And Why Do I Write About Miraculous Personal Testimonies?

Published Pebrero 1, 2017 by jptan2012

If there’s one thing that my experienced with Feng Shui and with my belief in (mainly) Buddhism and Taoism, is that MIRACLES DO HAPPEN! And it happens more often than we realize, it is just a matter of being able to recognize it.

I have so many miraculous stories to share, however, I simply don’t have enough time to write them all, on top of it, I will only share miracles that has been shared with me, either in whole or in part thru sms or email, this is so that I have something to show my readers the authenticity of the stories. Before, in order to protect the identity of my readers, I would not share their names and would only put initials. However, I realized I can share their first name and block out some of the important details to prove their identity, and lately if you notice those are the only personal testimonies that I share.

Anyway, today I would like to share with you not one but two personal testimonies of two different readers. I would have wanted to write about it separately but there are so much more things to write about, and truth be told I don’t think you will be happy if I simply write about miraculous personal testimonies of my readers.

But we all have a lesson to learn from these personal testimonies. It is not simply about the Vajrapani Ruel(1), or the Illness Suppression Amulet(1), or any amulet that I happened to write about, but it is about the experiences of readers who like a lot of you may be going through some problems in life. The problems may be personal that has something to do with relationships like your family or your longing for a partner in life. It can be about your personal growth, it can be about your career. It can be about money or the lack of it. What you are going through right now may be unique, but at the bottom of it, the root is basically the same for most people, and so from their stories we all learn something. And most of all, we are given hope that there is something else that we can do.

Such is the case of Grace. I met Grace because of her sister Mercy who is reader and a believer of Feng Shui. According to Mercy her life while she can still hope for something better is actually fine, and when I wrote about the Traditional Sutra Amulets (1)(Diamond Sutra and The Sutra On the Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva) she just felt an affinity with it. Something seems to tell her that she should get it, even though technically speaking the Traditional Sutra Amulet(2) (TSA) is actually a Buddhist religious item and not a Feng Shui item and Mercy is a Catholic. Furthermore, she felt that she should also get one for her sister, Grace, who is actually going through a bad patch in her life.

According to Mercy, her sister Grace got separated from her husband about a year ago, and while Grace and her husband felt that they still love each other, the meddling of the in – laws (mostly the parents of Grace’s husband’s parents) is making things difficult. Grace’s husband is the only son. On top of that, Grace’s business is having some financial problems; she is in danger of losing her business, something that she has strived to build for more than ten years now.

sutra-amulets

These are just one copy each of the very limited copies sent to me by my Guru Lama of the THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA, THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA. Sutras are also used as very powerful amulets, that is why you will often old Buddhist Chinese houses has a copy of the Sutra on their altar though they might not be reciting the sutra itself.

Mercy decided to get 2 copies of the TSA, she’ll give one copy to Grace. When I met Mercy, Grace tagged along. She obviously wasn’t a believer and it became apparent when she repeatedly questioned me as to how do the TSA’s work and why are they so pricey. I patiently answered all her questions and told her that technically speaking they are not paying for the TSA, which she calls book amulet, but rather the money goes to either feeding of the monks or images of the Buddha or Bodhisattva. I clearly remembered that she said well hope that her sister is shelling out for would not go to ‘statues’ but rather to the feeding of monks or ‘better yet to hungry even if they are not from the temple’. During our conversation, she subtly but repeatedly discouraged Mercy to get all TSAs, both THE DIAMOND SUTRA and THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA.

I met them last December, I think it was in the first week of December, and I didn’t hear from them again, not until a few days ago when Grace sent me a message. Apparently, she the non – believe experienced a wonderful miracle, which she attributes to the Traditional Sutra Amulet. Mercy clarified that while she hasn’t had a great miracle she feels that everything seems to be going smoother now.

Translation for first Filipino Sentence: I DIDN’T DO ANYTHING ELSE… Translation of the Second & Third Filipino Sentence: Maybe you noticed that I was bugging you with all those question because I really don’t believe in Feng Shui. But now I’m a believer.

Going back to Grace. When I talked to her on the phone she said that maybe her first miracle was when she and her husband decided to patch things up last Christmas, and they went back to living together again this January. She said at that time she just ignored it and thought maybe it was really just their love that brought them together (and I sort of agree with her, it really is there love that brought them back together). But then a second miracle happened.

image3

She has a business that should have been doing really well, however, her biggest competitions are the bigger companies that has bigger financial capital thus being able to lower their prices because they can buy things by the bulk and get the items lower and in turn they can pass it on to the consumers at the lower price also. In order to be able to compete with them and in order to survive she needs a big boost on her finances. Her husband’s business while stable is not the liquid to be able to help her, and while her family tried to help, she knows that what they can afford to give her is not enough to help ensure that she will survive the big competitors. At that time that she was given the TSA she was already contemplating shifting to another smaller business or closing it down.

When she and her husband got back together, her husband had a heart – to – heart and man – to – man talk with his father, Grace’s father – in – law. He told him that their meddling with his family is the cause of their marital problem. He also told them the truth that for years, they have treated Grace unfairly, especially his mother who has been quite harsh and critical of whatever Grace do. Surprisingly, the father accepted his mistake and told his son that he will talk to his wife also. At that time Grace’s husband also mentioned the problem of Grace’s business.

image2

According to Grace that she initially doesn’t believe in the Traditional Sutra Amulet (which she call Book Amulet) but because it was pricey she decided to simply follow my instruction and decided to ‘dump’ it behind the images of her Catholic saints.

After getting back together, Grace’s father – in – law paid them a visit. Her mother – in – law didn’t go with him because she is feeling sour that she was partly ‘blamed’ for what happened to Grace and her husband. But Grace’s father – in – law apologized for how they treated Grace and he also offered to finance the expansion of Grace’s business to make it more competitive!!! Of course, Grace initially said no. But the father – in – law actually said that he would take offense if Grace refuses to accept the money. Best of all when Grace had her lawyer come up with an agreement stating as to when she will pay the ‘loan’ the father – in – law tore it up and told her to pay only when able, and that he will consider it as a payment if Grace will cook for them once a week. Grace said this is funny because they used to criticize, especially the mother – in – law, Grace’s cooking. But Grace said she would be more than happy to do that. What is nice here is that Grace never harbored any ill – feeling towards her in – laws because she understands that they felt like she ‘stole’ their son from them.

Grace considers this as a miracle because of the following:

  1. Although a lot of the ‘bullying’ came from her mother – in – law, her father – in – law is a traditional Chinese patriarch and will never humble himself for the younger generation.
  2. The father – in – law believes that Grace shouldn’t be working, much less having her own business. He feels that she should just help her husband in his business and their family business.
  3. His father – in – law whose money is all hard – earned was never ‘generous’ with money.

Before we ended our conversation, Grace said maybe her mother – in – law would be a future miracle.

Similarly, another reader also shared another miracle. Evelyn is a mother of 4 children and is a wife of an Overseas Filipino Worker. I have met Evelyn once and I simply love the ‘energy’ of kindness and love that she exudes.

Evelyn’s eldest child, his son, lives in Australia. I believe he is doing quite well in Australia. And he recently decided to get his very own home. He applied for a bank loan, but even before he got the approval of his bank loan he decided to pay give the non – refundable down payment to the said house. I believe that the down was a substantial amount.

Then comes the bad news from the bank. It seems like there seems to be a minor technicality and he might not get the loan. This is not an option because he already made a down and it is non – refundable.

Evelyn contacted me to ask for help in terms of what mantras to chant to help his son get the loan from the bank. I gave her the mantras. And he waiting started. I suppose it’s an excruciating, heart – pounding wait for them. But in the end the good news is that he got the loan!

Evelyn absolutely believes that they got it because of the power of the mantras. This is such a simple but profound miracle only because Evelyn’s son savings and better future is at stake her.

Two different miracles, two different channel (one is an amulet and the other one is the chanting of mantras)! Why did I decide to write these two miracles in one article?

This is to show that it’s not all about amulets. Mantras will also work as well, and it works best if you have faith and you sincerely do it and pouring in some love will make it more powerful.

We cannot deny that amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel(2), the Traditional Sutra Amulet(3), the Illness Suppression Amulet(2), etc. are an essential part of Buddhism, Taoism, and Feng Shui. We cannot deny that they work. We cannot deny that sometimes it is essential to have them. We cannot deny that things may work faster to our favor if we have them. But we also cannot deny and has to acknowledge that even without amulets we can still get the things that we aspire for. That’s what the mantras are for. Or that’s why we have the power of the prayers as easy as that!

But remember, whether it is thru amulets, mantras, or prayers, that miracles sometimes doesn’t come in a way we want it to be, or in a way we expect it to be. As I always say we should expect miracles, but do not dictate it!

Dogs Barking or Howling At Walls: What It Means and How to Deal With It?

Published Nobyembre 30, 2016 by jptan2012

dogs-barkingRegular readers of this blog knows that I’m a firm believer of how a pet dog and help increase your good chi and bring in good luck, as long as one takes care of them properly and truly loves them.

I have a friend who called me up the other day, apparently his dogs are barking at his ‘wall’. Sometimes they howl. They seem to be seeing something that he is not seeing and he finds it creepy.

Dogs are naturally more sensitive in seeing or feeling unseen beings, and they may be seeing entities that we are not seeing. The manifestation usually comes in the form of them barking at the wall or at an empty space and they seem to be seeing something which we don’t see. Or it could be a howling. Sometimes they can be chasing something or seemingly being chased by something. Or they can be spooked and hide or seemingly growling at something. If these things happen, chances are they are seeing an entity or at the very least be feeling an entity.

When these things happen, first recognize the attitude of the dog. If they seems happy or relax chances are they’re seeing something of a positive or neutral entity. But if they seem spook or angry this is an indication that it is a negative entity. This is the case of my friend’s dogs.

If it’s a positive or neutral entity, just ignore them and they will soon go away. But if it’s a negative entity, it will be good if you as an expert to exorcise or like in the case of my friend, he got a Vajrapani Ruel and a Traditional Sutra Amulet (THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA) and a day after that aggressive barking at the ‘walls’ cease.

I would like to caution though that howling doesn’t really mean the presence of negative entities, some dogs are really just howlers like the Alaskan Malamute and Siberian Husky. Or sometimes they might be hearing a sound, because they have sensitive ears, that makes them howl. Like my dog back when we were still in our old house, we can tell if the Selecta ice cream man is about to pass by even before we hear his distinct music, because our dogs will already howl, and they won’ stop until the Selecta ice cream man pass by.

Forecasted Financial Situation Is Already Happening and Some Suggestions On How To Deal With It!

Published Nobyembre 28, 2016 by jptan2012

Late last year when I wrote about my analysis of the Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart of 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey, one of the things I wrote is the big possibility of a financial crisis. In that particular article, what will precipitate the said crisis will happen either the first part or the middle part of the year, but that the crisis will start to happen either middle of the year or last part of the year. Last June, US$ 1.00 is approximately around Php 44.00, and now it is (as of writing) Php 49.95, the highest is more than 8 years, and the first time to steadily jump up after more than 10 years. In another post, which I have decided will not be shared again; I also insinuated the cost of this financial crisis, at least, for our country.

If you look at the trend, US $ to Php should have started going down already because of the OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker)remittances, but on the third week of November it still continues to rise. Hopefully, it will still go down on December given that the OFW remittances are coming in, but even if goes down, it seems that it will jump up again coming January. I’m sharing this because we all need to get ready for this. I haven’t checked the bazi chart for the year 2017, and will do so soon and share with you my analysis as soon as possible.

Having said that, I will like to clarify that this is not a political post, and so I refrain from making assumptions as to what is causing the continues decline of the Philippine peso, but this I will say while the middle class to upper class are not yet feeling the effect of this financial crisis, we should not be blind to the ones on the lower income bracket who has taken a hit already.

In the past 3 months, I came across two former VIP bodyguards who is now an Uber driver or applying to be a driver. Their concern is that a lot of foreign investors have left the country or have downsized, and of course, not so many foreign VIPs are in need of bodyguard. Another reader also emailed me. Her son apparently works as a call center agent, but several smaller call center agencies have close shop, they are smaller but each one still have about 300 call center agents, not to mention janitors, guards, and non – call canter agent employees.

I’m sharing this because it is important that each one of us prepare for this financial crisis, if indeed it will become a full-blown crisis and I’m not saying it will. Although, I forecasted it, like the Yolanda forecast, the Nepal earthquake forecast, this is something that I’m not proud of nor I’m happy that my forecast has been vindicated.

I’m sure each one of us can do something. We can start of by supporting the good that our government is doing but we should also rally against the things that we perceived are wrong. When I say rally, I mean we should let our voices be heard in a non – violent and non – confrontational manner. Let’s email the government, let’s share our thoughts, and let us be the change, the improvement that we so desire to see.

And of course, do not forget the power of prayers, of going to church or temple, of lighting candles and incense and dedicating its merits for the financial improvement of the country, let us chant -a – mantra or recite – a sutra.

On a personal level, we should start protecting ourselves. Save up, invest properly, carry a powerful amulet like the Vajrapani Ruel or now the traditional sutra amulet like THE DIAMOND SUTRA and / or THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA, these amulets doesn’t become available now for no reason, they always become available at the right time.

Getting Rid of Bad Luck and Bad Spirits with the Use of A Traditional Sutra Amulet: A Personal Testimony of A Reader (A Special Recite – A – Sutra Article)

Published Nobyembre 25, 2016 by jptan2012

I was hesitant to write this particular post because I have not written about THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA, although I have written about the Traditional Sutra Amulet (TSA) in general and about the Diamond Cutter Sutra.

However, one reader who read about the TSA and who is familiar with its power even before reading my post has immediately requested for the Traditional Amulet Sutra. His preference was THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA. He said he needs it because he have been experiencing a spade of bad luck and several sensitive people has seen some bad spirits in his house.

sutra-amulets

These are just one copy each of the very limited copies sent to me by my Guru Lama of the THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA, THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA. Sutras are also used as very powerful amulets, that is why you will often old Buddhist Chinese houses has a copy of the Sutra on their altar though they might not be reciting the sutra itself.

I asked him what makes him believe that the spirits are bad; apparently they become poltergeist at times. While he and his wife and children have certainly felt something and have experienced some poltergeist activity, the one who receives the biggest effect is their house help, his mom, and their frequent houseguest. Nevertheless, he also believes that the spirits are causing the bad luck in their house. According to him they only started experiencing the ‘bad lucks’ when they moved into their new house, which is the said house inhabited by the spirits.

Some of the things that they experienced when they moved in is the loss of several valued clients, and also their trusted house help who have been with them for years. The house help had an accident and she claims she felt somebody pushed her. Then their frequent house guest, who happens to be his wife’s cousin, also claims to have seen a lady inside the house several times, and there are times that the guest room door will open and banged itself close on its own. His mom would also be awaken in the middle of the night because she feels like somebody is inside her room walking around her bed, and there are times that she actually feels somebody like waking her up.

He and his wife and three children will also feel some paranormal activity, the TV will turn on and off by itself. They sometimes would hear one of them calling the other, and several times his youngest child, who is only about 4 years old claims that there is an angry lady in his (which he shares with his two brothers) room. Although the other two older sons doesn’t seem to see anything. But a lot of times they will have missing items only to turn out somewhere else.

He lives in another part of the country, so when he requested that I visit his place so that I can check; I knew the answer would be no only because my schedule really wouldn’t permit it. According to him, moving to a new house is impossible, because they’re actually still paying for their house.

According to him, a Buddhist Monk suggested that he look for THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA traditional sutra amulet, and that was he searched online. His initial search yields nothing but when he searched again about two weeks after he saw my article. That’s when he conducted me.

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.

Just recently he called me up again and said that it is as if the effect is instantaneous. As soon as he put the traditional sutra amulet (THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA) inside his house, all paranormal or poltergeist activities seem to cease right away. On top of that, about 5 days after he placed the traditional sutra amulet inside his house, two of their valued client who has terminated their contract with them agreed to give them another chance.

He also admitted that his mother who is familiar with Chinese words also THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA.

Having a traditional sutra amulet alone is powerful enough but if you recite – a – sutra, it multiplies the luck or the blessings that you get.

The Buddhist Neighbor

Published Oktubre 17, 2016 by jptan2012

I’m really quite happy that I received the traditional copy of THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA (also called known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) and THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA just when we are settling to our new home. As I have said these traditional sutra amulets provides protection but more than that they also provide wonderful blessings. I have been looking and aspiring to get such sutras to be place in our house or even in my room. However, even if it is quite common for temples to have them, they are not for sale, neither it is regularly given to the temple goers. Furthermore, while they are in itself carries with it some power; it will be better to get one that was consecrated by a qualified lama or monk. Not all monks are qualified to consecrate a sutra amulet.

sutra-amulets

These are just one copy each of the very limited copies sent to me by my Guru Lama of the THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA, THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA. Sutras are also used as very powerful amulets, that is why you will often old Buddhist Chinese houses has a copy of the Sutra on their altar though they might not be reciting the sutra itself.

But what I want to share now is that when we first moved to our new home, and although we got all the most auspicious omens which I have written about a few posts ago, we sometimes still can’t help but miss our old home. We have been living in our old home since 1980, and moving to new home, even one we have grown to love right away still makes us feel a little ‘homesick’. I think one of the reasons for this; we practically don’t know any of our neighbors. My mom who is not in her 70’s had to make new friends in our neighborhood and it would be quite difficult, especially when we never had any other neighbors than Chinese and pure Filipino, but now some of our neighbors are Spanish mestizo or mestizo.

diamond-sutra2

These are just one copy each of the very limited copies sent to me by my Guru Lama of the THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA, THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA. Sutras are also used as very powerful amulets, that is why you will often old Buddhist Chinese houses has a copy of the Sutra on their altar though they might not be reciting the sutra itself.

One other reason is that there is no Buddhist temple that is near our place. I think the nearest is about 45 minutes away. Unlike before where it was only 8 minutes away, on top of that, we’ve designed our house to include a big image of a Bodhisattva Kuan Yin (also called or spelled as Avalokitesvara, Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kannon, Cannon) on our small and humble front lawn, and the image of Guan Yin Bodhisattva can be seen outside. Several times when we light incense or made offerings in that particular image of Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, I noticed some car slowing down or there are a few who really can’t resist but to stare. From what I know there are very few Filipino – Chinese in our new subdivision and I really haven’t seen any of them. And maybe there would be even fewer Buddhist, and we were informed by the person who sold us the property that the subdivision is predominantly Catholic.

About a week since we moved in to our new home, neighbors started introducing themselves, and our image of Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva on our small and humble front lawn became the main focus of these conversations. My mom told me that she felt awkward explaining to our new neighbors as to why do we make offerings in front of the image. However, I think this seems to be an indication that they are genuinely interested in what we do and told my mom that she can use this as an opportunity to talk about Buddhism. But she clearly pointed out to me that she doesn’t have the passion of talking about her faith to people.

Anyway, when I received the traditional copies of the sutra amulets, and my Guru Lama said I and my family can have one each of THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA and 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), and so as I said I was really happy to place them on the altar. It is customary that each member of the family to have one wish each as you put the sutras on the altar (we got two wishes each because there are two sutras), my youngest nephews all of a sudden uttered that his only wish is for his grandmother (my mother) to meet a Buddhist neighbor so that his grandmother won’t feel like she’s an alien.

These are just one copy each of the very limited copies sent to me by my Guru Lama of the THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA, THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA. Sutras are also used as very powerful amulets, that is why you will often old Buddhist Chinese houses has a copy of the Sutra on their altar though they might not be reciting the sutra itself.

Guess what? The next day, one of our neighbors (well they’re from two streets away) rang our bell and welcomed us with a pot of a vegetarian dish. They are a couple around 60 something. The wife is a Filipina and the husband is Irish, and they both happen to be practicing Buddhist for more than 20 years already! They said they’re happy that have a Buddhist neighbor. I wasn’t there at that time, but my mom said that she told them that she was happy to finally have met a Buddhist neighbor!
