Do Not Attack A Temple!

Published Hulyo 18, 2018 by jptan2012

I was in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia recently to attend a conference. While I did not have time to do some sightseeing, my host took me out for an early dinner on my first day there. As we were en route to the restaurant, we passed by a small Taoist temple, and in front of the temple is a series of houses that are all abandoned. I was not able to take picture because traffic was light and we didn’t stop. But my host who is familiar with me writing this blog asked me why did the houses in front of the temple had such a bad luck.
The answer was simple, because at their gates they have spikes directed towards the temple, so in a way they’re sending poison arrows to the temple, this becomes an aggressive act against the temple and so they sort of “fighting” with the temple. In fighting the temple who do you think would win? Having said that it is pretty obvious and clear why they attracted so much bad luck even if they were in front of a temple.
Writing this so that you will be more conscious on what to put in front of your house so that you don’t create “war” without you not even realizing it.

Get Rid of All Negativities!

Published Agosto 13, 2016 by jptan2012

In my recent trip to Davao, I finally got to meet one of my reader turn friend, I’m talking about BM. Regular readers of my blog should be familiar with BM and in fact Angie whose story was shared also in the following posts – Half – A – Million Pesos Financial Luck for the Husband; A Career Luck of Promotion for the Only Child; And Continuous Flow of Money Luck and Wisdom Luck of Creativity for A Reader Who Got the Vajrapani Ruel and the Illness Suppression Amulet: Another Personal Testimony of A Reader! & Financial Blessing By Way of A Mysterious Money Deposit Received Two Days After Receiving the Vajrapani Ruel: A Personal Testimony of a Reader!  – even asked me about BM. Obviously, Angie is quite curious about BM.

I really cannot express how much BM has influenced me in making my decisions and also on how to deal with negativities. BM has always reminded me to just keep quiet and ignore negativities even if it comes from people, maybe especially from people. According to her this has been her secret in staying healthy, and feeling good. I suspect this is also the reason why she looks younger than her age, and despite being busy she looks fresh and relaxed.

But I’m veering away from what I really want to say. BM has been such a good influence over me and it’s proving that I’m learning a lot of things from her. One of these lessons is that for me to ignore or get rid of all negativities. Unfortunately, sometimes these negativities come from people.remove-suspicion-and-negativity

Recently, I ordered a Chung Kwei made from high-grade obsidian for BM. The guy who sells it is a Mainland Chinese married to a Filipino woman. During my conversation with the seller he agreed to give BM a discount, after we had agreed on the price he passed on to his wife the duty of sending it to me. There was a delay, and when I followed it up with her, she rudely said, “Never mind that it’s late, you got a big discount anyway!”

My usual self might have answered her back politely. However, I remembered BM’s statement and realized that I should just keep my mouth shut. I did. Thanks to BM I didn’t get any negative karma by answering back.

Just today (time of posting may not reflect time of writing), a lady reader called me to tell me that somebody supposedly called her. According to her that this woman who called told her that my Guru Lama is dead or has died and he used to head this Buddhist temple in Antipolo.

First, there is no Buddhist temple in Antipolo, at least not that I know of. I’m not even sure whether there is a Taoist temple there. If there is then I’m not aware of it. My Guru Lama is not base there, and definitely he is alive and kicking. Well, maybe not kicking, but he can still walk unaided despite of his advance age. I was initially irritated and told my reader to tell the woman who called her to prove what she is saying, because she can’t and she won’t be able to prove it because it is simply not the truth. You see the source of my initial irritation is why would somebody create a rumor that my Guru Lama is dead or has died. He is not very young but he is very much alive. In fact, I just got to talk to him the morning my reader called me. Also, I really don’t know the purpose of why that woman would call her, and add to that I really don’t know the purpose of why my reader would call me to simply tell me something that is clearly not true. Obviously the woman who called my reader has spare time and with nothing to do she just decided to come up with stories. Whether she is a rumormongering woman, as a friend pointed out, or not I don’t know, but there are a lot of people who sometimes do things without thinking about it properly and they become source of negative energy for others who entertain and get affected by them. My reader, whatever her intentions are should have use her discretion, anyway, I was initially irritated because during the Hungry Ghost Month it is believed that negative thoughts sent to a person is doubled or is powerful and may come true. By saying that my Guru Lama is dead or has recently died sends a negative energy of death to my Guru Lama and this got me really irritated. But thanks to BM because I remembered what she told me, so I just decided to end the conversation and put the phone down. Nothing good will come out from the said conversation. Besides I should have realized that the negative energy they send out against my Guru Lama will be deflected by his strong positive energy he possess.

My ideal conversations are with BM and Angie because it always ends with me learning something from them. I just hope that they are learn something from me also.

I’m sharing this with you now because I also want you my readers to learn what I learned from BM. Get rid of negativities! Get rid of  the source of negative energy and life will surely become better. BM is a living proof of that.

Attracting Love Thru a Simple But Powerful Ritual

Published Pebrero 14, 2015 by jptan2012

Valentines-Day-Free-31Today, we celebrate Valentine’s Day, and I’m sure a lot of people will be interested, especially for those who are single and wanting to find their significant partner.

Aside from the things that I have shared 3 years ago in a post entitled FENG SHUI TIPS TO ENHANCED LOVE AND MARRIAGE LUCK, the Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant, which is unfortunately no longer available has been found to be effective for enhancing love luck also. According to my Guru Lama, the Vajrapani Ruel will help you to identify whether the love for you of your significant other is pure or not.

However, today allow me to share with you a special but very simple ritual to enhance your love luck. All you have to do is go to a temple and offer 9 pieces of apple to an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva if it’s a Buddhist temple or to a Taoist God or Deity if it’s a Taoist temple. The 8 apples should be of the same color and the ninth one should be different one, on that single different piece, write your name followed by the Chinese character for love or an image of a heart, and draw a stick figure of a man or woman. Then leave at the altar or at the foot of the image.

It is believe that by doing this heaven will conspire you to have your significant love.

For the apples, you can use 8 green apples and one red apple or vice versa, or Fuji apples and then one Washington Red apples. Any apples will do as long as the ninth one is of a different variant. Use a black or blue fine marker to write your name if the apple is a dark color one, use red if it’s a light color apple.

The Chief of the Eight Immortals: Chung Li-Chuan

Published Abril 19, 2012 by jptan2012

Chung-li Chuan, also spelled as Zhungli Quan, is said to be to the chief of powerful Taoist collective immortals – THE EIGHT IMMORTALS. He is also said to be the most ancient of all the Eight Immortals, although some Taoist scholars and priest would argue that it’s actually Lu Dongbin, also spelled as Lu Dongpin.

Chung-li Chuan is believed to have been born during the Han Dyansty, and he is usually depicted as a fat man with big, rounded, bared stomach or belly. His magical implement is a feather fan, which he uses to bestow the blessing of good health. It is also said that he is able to revive the people who are seriously ill to good health by using his feather fan. On top of that, by using his fan he is also able to revive people who’ve died, the only pre-requisite for him to perform this magic is that he has to be absolutely sure that the dead person really deserves to be alive again and that he as a living person he is able to become a blessing to others. Furthermore, his fan is said to be able to change bad luck into good luck.

It is also written in religious texts that when Chung-li Chuan was born, the room where he was born was magically filled with beams of light. It was also said that his parents believed that he was an old soul because he continued to cry for seven days and night, as if complaining about his mortality.

There is a Taoist temple in Taiwan that is dedicated to the Eight Immortals, specifically to Immortal Chung-li Chuan. One devotee shared with me a story about how her daughter who was seriously ill was restored back to health when she prayed to Chung-li Chuan. As a sign of thanksgiving, the woman would always bring a colorful feather fan as an offering Chung-li Chuan every feast day of the Eight Immortals.
