The Darker Part of the Year Base on the 2017 Bazi Chart Has Started!

Published Oktubre 4, 2017 by jptan2012

I think most, if not all, Feng Shui experts or Feng Shui writers or Feng Shui consultants (whether commercialized or not) agrees that we have officially entered the darker part of THE the year base on the 2017 bazi chart (paht chee chart). Regular readers of this blog will remember that I have written about this during my annual forecast.

First, I wrote that a ‘calamity’ will happen on the 3rd quarter of the year or it may start to happen at around the third quarter and we will start to feel its effect towards the 4th quarter or next year. Please note that I’m talking about the 3rd quarter to 4th quarter of the lunar month and not of the Western Calendar that we regularly use officially.

Just recently, internationally famous Feng Shui expert Lillian Too has announced that we have entered the darker part of the year. My Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong has said the same thing and furthermore, my Guru Lama has said the energies of the year have since become more negative.

Last Hungry Ghost month, which was in the 3rd quarter of the Lunar Month, saw the calamities and typhoons that struck different countries. I have written about this but failed to mention that it happened also in Nepal, India and other countries. It also happened recently in Puerto Rico, which was at the tail end of the Hungry Ghost month, but the real tragedy is that the POTUS refused to help them and became more concerned about trivial matter.

Rohingya Muslims persecutions has also become worst and might have reached it’s peak during the Hungry Ghost month.

In the Philippines, politically speaking we are in a turmoil. I don’t want to be political on this blog, but if you base it on the bazi chart and what my Guru Lama is saying, something bad has started to brew and will see it’s effect soon, which is towards the end of the year or early next year.

What is important now, regardless of your political belief or affiliation, is for you to think beyond yourself and think for this country or for this world. And I’m saying this not just for the Filipinos but also for everybody who reads regardless of whether where you live. Remember, there is brewing war that involves North Korea – USA – Japan. This war is not a matter of ‘if’ but rather of ‘when’. And the truth is it has started on a more discreet level.

Again, generally speaking a good leader is somebody who unifies rather than one who is divisive. A good leader accepts that there will be opposition and embrace it as part of it’s growth, and not somebody who tries to attack and silence those who attack him or her. A good leader is somebody who sticks to the facts and not makes up stories to malign those who oppose him or her. A good leader doesn’t come up with false stories just because he or she knows that there are people who are blind followers.

But it is time for us to get out of our own comfort zone because we have to share the truth; each of us has to do that in our own way. And we should all start praying that things will get better. We can oppose these dark energies with prayers.

On a personal level, money matters might become harder thus my Guru Lama decided to release the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET (1), and on top of that one should always protect oneself with good deeds, prayers, and amulets.

While we should be more concern on the macro effects of the dark energies that has come in, it is not to say that this will not have any effect on us on a personal level. As mentioned, on a personal level the effect will be mostly financial, although it might have some effect on communication and personal relationships as well. Furthermore, it will have an effect on our personal safety. It is important that one continues to pray and save some money. Again protect yourself, wear your gold Kalachakra pendant, or Vajrapani Ruel, or even the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, the Illness Suppression Amulet. If you don’t have these, you can wear an image of Bodhisattva Earth Store (aka Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva), Bodhisattva Kuan Yin (also spelled or called as Kuan Shi Yin, Quan Shi Yin, Quan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Avalokitesvara, Chenrezig, Kannon, Bodhisattva of Compassion, Goddess of Mercy), or Buddha Amitabha, or Medicine Buddha.

If Life is Predetermined Thru the Bazi Chart Does That Mean We Can’t Do Much About Our Future?

Published Setyembre 11, 2017 by jptan2012

One of the most common questions that I get is whether we can do anything about our Bazi Chart (Paht Chee Chart). Does that mean if our bazi shows that we don’t have love luck or wealth luck does that mean we will never get rich or we will never be lucky in terms of romance luck?

This is an interesting topic because a lot of people get confused about this.

It is true that the bazi chart pretty much determines the life of a person, but what most people don’t understand is that this chart or road map is seldom linear and seldom unilateral. While there is single strong path that the bazi shows, a good bazi reader will see the other paths or what I would like to call sub – paths or alternative path. These sub – paths or alternative paths are there, although it is harder to calculate and determine this but it is there.

All of us have a dominant path, and this is what is easily seen. But most of us have sub- paths also and these are usually 3 or 4 sub – paths or at the very least a minimum of another one. I have never encountered a person without a sub – path, but my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong and Guru Lama both said that there are people who only have one single path.

Let me explain it further. The bazi chart will always show the dominant path, and only a good bazi reader can see the sub – paths, even this they may or may not see all the sub – paths or the alternative paths.

If our dominant path is bad, how do we then veer away from it and go one of the sub – paths or alternative paths? This is where a good bazi reader comes in. But before that you have to know that a Feng Shui expert or a Feng Shui consultant may or may not be a bazi chart reader. Here in the Philippines, most of the commercialized Feng Shui consultants or experts are not bazi reader. It is easy to determine this, if they all ask from you is your birthdate and not the time, or all they need to know is whether you were born in a year of the Ox or Rabbit or Dragon, etc. These are clear signs that they don’t know how to analyze a bazi chart. So a good bazi reader will be able to tell you what you should do or wear or carry to help veer away from your dominant part. Usually, specific instructions are involve like you should work harder and work in the field of electronic for example. Or they should be able to tell you to wear more red or blue or white, etc. Or they should be able to wear a specific amulet.

The importance of wearing a legitimate authentic and powerful amulet also comes in to play. An authentic powerful amulet will also help drive you the best path, or to an alternative path that you are ready to go through. Sometimes we are not directed to the best path because our consciousness is not able to discern bigger things for us. Or sometimes the miracle that serves as the key to the alternative path is already right in front of us but we refuse to see it only because we want something else or are expecting something else.

Now, when we get to this alternative path, it becomes our dominant path, but then again it is seldom linear or unilateral, so from this dominant are other alternative paths also.

It is also possible that from our good dominant path we downgrade to one of the bad paths due to bad karmic things that we do on this life.

So working on this principle, what an amulet does or a Feng Shui charm or cure does is lead us to one of the alternative paths, this path may or may not be the best path, but it will be most likely better than the dominant path.

What an amulet does for us is that it pulls our luck from one of the alternative paths and set us to that path. Sometimes though an amulet like the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet creates luck for us, in this particular amulet, it creates wealth luck for us, which becomes our key to one of the better sub – paths.

But it is not all about amulets or Feng Shui cures or charms. Working hard and keeping a positive outlook can also lead us to the other alternative paths and make it our dominant path. Having a good heart, thus creating good karma can also lead us to better alternative path, in the same manner bad karma can lead us to bad alternative path or sub – path and turn it into our dominant path.

Furthermore, we should never underestimate the power of prayers. I have seen so many lives changed only because of the power of prayers.

And so yes, our lives are pre – determined but it is never linear or unilateral.

Myth Buster 43: Incense Smoke Brings Our Prayers to Heaven

Published Nobyembre 17, 2016 by jptan2012

When I was in still elementary and going to a Christian school, my Christian teacher told us that when Buddhist (collectively referring to Taoist and Buddhist) pray they light an incense because the incense smoke brings the prayer the wishes to heaven. Of course, given that she is our teacher, a lot of us believe this. and later on I found out that this is a very common beliefs amongst non – Taoist or non – Buddhist, but more than that this is also a common belief amongst Taoist and Buddhist as well.

There is no truth to that belief. When we chant – a – mantra, or recite – a – sutra, or even pray, we don’t need to light incense for the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas to hear our prayer. In fact, the sutra says even before we say our heart’s wishes or desires, the Buddhas and the Bodhisattvas already know them. We only light incense as an offering to the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Taoist Gods.

Witchcraft: It’s Not What You Think But It Is More Common Than We Think It Is (Part 1)

Published Nobyembre 11, 2016 by jptan2012
witchcraft

Image uploaded from Google Images

A few weeks ago a reader shared with me that he thinks he is a victim of witchcraft done by his ex – wife. Not really an expert in identifying witchcraft or sorcery and so I dismissed it and told him that it is not my expertise but will just ask my Guru Lama about it. Honestly, at that time I honestly thought that it was just a mild hallucination and desire to blame somebody else for what is happening. GP if you get to read this, I’m sorry for thinking that way. But really there are a lot of people who thinks that they are being a victim of witchcraft or sorcery but a lot of times it really just is their own bad karma or bad Feng Shui.

However, I went to ask my Guru Lama about GP and true enough according to my Guru Lama GP is a victim of witchcraft done thru a medium (a witch or somebody who is familiar with it) by his ex – wife.

My Guru Lama, sort of reminded me what I should know already by this time. That is WITCHCRAFT or SORCERY is not really how it is portrayed on TV or movies, wherein the witch is an ugly girl with a sharp nose, messy hair, with a cauldron and a voodoo doll. Although it is possible that some of them uses a voodoo doll. My Guru Lama also said that witchcraft or sorcery is more common that we think. To stress the lesson to me and to remind me not to be judgmental my Guru Lama reminded of some of the cases that I encountered that involves witchcraft or sorcery. Although some of these we didn’t really call witchcraft but if you analyze it, it is really witchcraft.

Allow me to share some the cases here on this article.

One of the cases involves DAS. For the purpose of this article let’s call her Diane. Diane was married to a Chinese guy who seems to be totally controlled by his mother, Diane’s mother – in – law. To make the long story short, Diane’s husband, let’s just call him ES, got a gift from his mother. The gift is a faux diamond set in silver. Aside from ES, his father, Diane’s father – in – law, also got one. Now the question here is, why were the other children and Diane and the grandchildren were not given the same pendant by the mother – in – law given that the reason given by the mother – in – law is that it is for protection. She is also very well capable giving all of them the same pendant because (1) it doesn’t look very expensive, and (2) the mother – in – law is really reach that she can afford to give one to all the members of the family even if it cause (exaggeration) around one hundred thousand Philippine peso each. However, Diane noticed that since having the pendant, her husband and father – in – law seems to always bow to the will of her mother – in – law, who totally dislike having another independent, self – reliant woman In their house like Diane. ES and his father have also a lot of times grown to rely on Diane, something that her mother – in – law detests. My Guru Lama and my Feng Shui teacher and a Taoist Priest in Hong Kong confirmed that the pendant given by Diane’s mother – in – law to ES and to her father – in – law is a way or means to control them. A lot of people can argue that this can be just a product of an over imaginative mind. That’s possible. But explain why when the ES stops wearing the pendant, he stopped being his mother’s pawn.

Another story is that of a married wife. BY is a happily married wife until he found out that her husband had an affair with two different women. When he was found out, the husband professed his love for BY and his family and promised that he will stop seeing his mistresses. They didn’t have any problem with the first mistress, but the second mistress is out to get him back. And so there are times that the husband seems to be not himself. He will all of a sudden feel anxious and feel as if the girl is calling him. There are times that he will just stare into space and seems to be somewhere else. It was later on confirmed by my Guru Lama and another psychic consulted by BY that this second mistress has an employed the services of a witch to help bring back BY’s husband to her.

There is yet another story of another reader whose son is madly fell in love with a older woman of what can be considered is of an ill repute. The woman works as a hospitality girl; she is a kept woman of a politician. When the mother of the guy found out about the relationship, she set out to break them apart. The son came to his senses and went back to his mom’s loving arms. That’s when the problem and change in his son started. According to the mom, his son started staring into space; there are times that he seems to be awake without any ‘spirit’ inside him. Still there are times that the son would act like the woman is the most important thing or most important person in his life. Still there re times that he will sleepwalk, something that he never did before he got involved with the said woman, he will walk out of his house. But whenever he will come to his senses, he will go back to his mom’s house. However, there are times, that he himself doesn’t understand why it seems that he is unable to control himself and stop thinking about the woman. His mom brought him to see a psychiatrist, thinking that he might be depress because of the break – up. He end up seeing two different psychiatrist who saw him several times, when he was in control of his senses. They concluded that there is nothing wrong with him and that he knows that the woman is no good for him. However, still all of a sudden he would look for the woman and act strange. Until one day, he sleep walked going to the house of the woman. When his brother found out that he was not in bed, he called his mom and dad, and his mom knew that he must have gone to the house of the woman. They followed their instinct and went to see the woman. They were met by the woman’s mother who told them to leave. They refuse and asked the barangay officials to help and intercede, but since their son is already 20 years old, technically speaking he is an adult and if it was his free will to be there they cannot do anything. Still they insist to see his son. The woman then came out to talk to them to assure them that their son is speaking soundly and wanted to be with her. The mom refuses to give up on his son, and so she and her husband continued to argue and insist on seeing the son. All of a sudden, their son came running out crying and said he doesn’t understand why he went to the house of the woman. He went home with them. It was then that the mother thought that it maybe witchcraft. This was confirmed by an albularyo (Filipino Shaman) who tried to break the power of the witchcraft, but the sleep walking, the depressed moods, the staring into space moments continue to happen until the mom having read my blog contacted me. I in turn contacted my Guru Lama who also confirmed that it is witchcraft.

Still, there is another story of another reader whose child kept on getting sick, really sick that she has to drop out of school. This was a big blow to her because this happened right after when her problem with her husband just got solved. You see her husband fell in love with another woman, a very rich woman, but even before she found out about it her husband ended the affair with the other woman, she found out about it because he admitted the affair to her. This created a temporary friction between the two of them because she cannot fathom the fact the he betrayed her love and trust, plus it doesn’t help that the other woman seems bent on destroying their relationship and still pursues the guy. In the end their love won and they patch things up. This was when their only child started getting sick. They initially unable to find out the disease, but it was later found out that their child was suffering from leukemia. They sought the help of some of the best doctors in UST Hospital, but the child seems to be getting worse and is not responding to chemotherapy as well as the doctors expect. They were told by a friend who is supposed to be psychic that there is witchcraft involved. This was when they contacted me, and I in turn contacted my Guru Lama who confirmed that indeed witchcraft is involved. By this time, they have forgotten about the other woman, but my Guru Lama is the one who brought it up and said the other woman wants them to run into a big problem and run into financial problem, to come to a point where in the husband will go back to her and ask for financial help. Remember the other woman is really rich.

These are just some of the stories that my Guru Lama reminded me. And yes, I realized that Witchcraft or Sorcery is more common that we thought it is. It is more accessible that we thought of. We should take away our stereotypes against witchcraft or sorcery but we should also realize that it is more common that we realize.

And so going back to GP. He is indeed suffering from witchcraft. To make things worst, his second wife, and daughter from his second wife are getting affected also. GP himself started getting ill and was diagnosed with a heart ailment. My Guru Lama confirmed he is being attacked through witchcraft by his ex – wife. The ex – wife seems to have contacted a relative who is familiar with it. She is doing this simply because she wants GP and his family to suffer to the point that GP go back to her begging for forgiveness. GP’s case is work in progress; my Guru Lama is helping break the witchcraft done on him. Let’s all pray it works.

Diane’s case is also still a work in progress. I lost touch with BY so don’t know what really happened. But the son who fell in love with the woman of ill repute is now totally sane and has gotten rid of the power of the witchcraft over him. He is now working and earning a good sum of money every month. After a series of chemotherapy who at the beginning she was found not to respond well on the said medicines, the child who suffered from witchcraft because of her father’s other woman is now doing well and is back in school. The cure recommended by my Guru Lama varies, but usually involves powerful amulets.

But looking back at the stories, you will see the witchcraft involves people who have some relationships with the one who propagated the witchcraft. Why? This is because witchcraft or sorcery is more effective if there is an emotional or even binding relationship between the one who propagates it and the victim. By binding relationship I refer to either marriage or parent and child. A strong emotion is also a powerful conduit, so love and extreme anger are strong conduit. In the case of the child who had leukemia, she was not involve, but either the love or anger of the other woman to her dad is the conduit, and in turn that conduit is extended through the love of his dad for her.

You will notice also that most of the witchcraft involves a woman. It’s not because they are more evil but it is because a woman’s emotions is naturally stronger than that of a man, and emotion acts a conduit to make the witchcraft more powerful. Having said that it doesn’t mean that a man cannot be a conduit for witchcraft to be effective.

Is The Double Wu Wang in the Northeast this November Fatal?

Published Nobyembre 3, 2016 by jptan2012

My article about the double #5 Flying Star (also called as Five Yellow Star or 5 – Yellow Star) or better known as Wu Wang this coming November was already posted as early as October 20, 2016, this is to give my readers enough time to prepare for the double Wu Wang whammy that will land on the Northeast. This means that everybody who is in the Northeast side of their house, office, room, or everybody whose house faces Northeast, or everybody whose house or office building faces the Northeast are greatly affected.

But more than that all people born in the year of the Ox or Tiger, or every middle born son, whether married or single, whether young or old, as long as you are middle born are affected.

The question now is whether it is fatal. I was bombarded with this question by a number of my readers because according to them Lillian Too on her website wrote that this star is fatal. I was looking for this reference but I was unable to see it, but I did see that she mentioned that one could get into a serious illness or serious accident.

Lillian Too is the world’s most famous Feng Shui expert and teacher. And obviously if she says something we should all take note of it and listen to what she has to say. Now the second question is do I agree that it can cause serious illness and accidents or as some readers asks whether it can be fatal.

To answer that allows me to explain it a little. Wu Wang or the Five Yellow Star or #5 Flying Star on it’s own is the most dreaded star. This star coupled with bad karma can be fatal, and so yes, it can be fatal.

When I first wrote the article, I didn’t want to cause some panic and was cautious to put in strong words, although I felt I already gave fair warning and had couldn’t stress enough how much caution all those who are affected has to take about this double whammy of Wu Wang(s) where the Monthly #5 Flying Star join forces with Annual #5 Flying Star on the Northeast.

I have written about the Wu Wang so many times already and every year I write about it that I will not go into details about it anymore. But needless to say, it is the most dreaded star that can cause so much misfortune. It can cause a lot of problems.

However, what I want to stress now is that yes it can be fatal, but fatal here may refer to not only death by illness or accidents but also fatal business wise or relationship wise. So everybody mentioned above should take extra precaution.

Furthermore, and it is important for all of you to take note of this, people born in the year of the Ox and Tiger, and middle sons (regardless whether you’re already 100 years old and lives in a different house already) who stays in the Northeast or whose house doors or office doors are in the Northeast are doubly affected. Why? Because the ruling sector of people born in the year of the Ox and Tiger, and middle sons is in the Northeast! This means you double the already doubled Wu Wang!

And wait, don’t forget that the ruling #2 Flying Star which is also known as the Illness Star, a star that causes not only illness but also grave accidents is doubled, and while everybody is affected, those who are already affected by the Wu Wang (those people mentioned above) are also more susceptible to this star because your overall energy is already weakened by the Wu Wang or 5 – Yellow Star.

Please read my earlier post – DOUBLE WU WANG WHAMMY FOR PEOPLE BORN IN THE YEAR OF THE OX AND TIGER THIS COMING NOVEMBER! – to understand more about it and also to ensure that you are familiar on how you can get protected.

Nevertheless, what I want to stress in this particular post, especially those who are doubly affected by the double Wu Wang whammy is that aside from protecting yourself with the cures I mentioned like the Vajrapani Ruel, gold Kalachakra pendant, gold Five Element pagoda pendant, 5 – Element Pagoda for the Northeast sectors, the Illness Suppression Amulet, the Traditional Sutra Amulet, AND YOU SHOULD ARM YOURSELF WITH THESE CURES, is that you wear more metal on your body. Wear more jewelries and for the month of November wear more white. But there’s one thing I would like to stress, this is also the time wherein you must have faith in the power of Sutras and Mantras, so recite some sutras and chant some mantras. If you’re a Christian then pray and believe in your God. Have faith! Having said that, you should go to church or temple more often. Go everyday if possible, genuinely and generously give more to those who are in need. These things should help protect you.

NOTE: Fire strengthens the Earth energy of the Wu Wang and Illness Star so avoid wearing very bright fire colors like red, violet, orange, and pink. So lighting candles inside the house or office is not also advisable, but lighting incense and candles in the temple or church is going to be helpful. In the same manner, yellow is an earth color so try to avoid this as well.

Interment or Cremation: A Feng Shui Perspective!

Published Nobyembre 1, 2016 by jptan2012

I understand that the Roman Catholic Church now allows cremation provided that there is going to be a proper interment after.

Some of you, especially my regular readers, would know that I’m a big advocate of cremation. Why? Because this takes out a lot of the possible problem of Yin Feng Shui.

Yin Feng Shui is the branch of Feng Shui that has to do with the Feng Shui or burial sites or cemeteries. I myself am not very familiar with this because this is a critical branch of Feng Shui, something that may cause harm to the one who does this. My Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong is a certified Yin Feng Shui consultant, and my Guru Lama himself without explicitly telling me is somebody who knows how to handle Yin Feng Shui. But again this is a very delicate branch of Feng Shui. In fact, in Hong Kong there is a famous Feng Shui consultant, one who is adept in doing Feng Shui and who is quite famous because he has attracted some of the richest people in Hong Kong as his clientele. However, when he did a delicate Yin Feng Shui and went to the cemetery, he died right there and then while he was doing it when a landslide happened and buried him alive. I’m sure my readers from Hong Kong and Taiwan would know whom I’m talking about, just as those who are familiar with Feng Shui.

But no matter how delicate Yin Feng Shui is, one has to do it if one opts for an interment, because a Yin Feng Shui, for example wrong placement of the tomb, or wrong direction can lead to really tremendous bad luck to the descendants of the person. Or the person itself might go to the lower realms like Hell or Hungry Ghost or Animal Kingdom or it may make your life next life as a human really bad.

But I repeat, doing Yin Feng Shui that is why I never fully studied about it except for some basic guidelines. And throughout my life as a Feng Shui practitioner, I have never attempted to do Yin Feng Shui except maybe thrice. One is when we have to correct the burial site of my paternal grandmother because the first Feng Shui consultant who did it made a mistake, but in effect I didn’t do it myself because all the decisions were made by my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong and all I did was to relay details to him. But even I was just a conduit I made sure that I’m absolutely protected.

Then the second time was when my good friend practically begged me to help him correct his father’s burial site. Again this was done with the help of my Feng Shui teacher and Guru Lama and I again act as conduit.

Last time was when BM who has minor burial site with her mother’s tomb, my Guru Lama guided me what to do. In fact, I really don’t want to do it at that time but my Guru Lama said that I owe it to BM to do it and so I went to Davao and did it. But again, with BM it was just a matter of placing a Vajrapani Ruel and a special amulet and doing some ritual and again I made sure that I’m totally protected. In fact, I even have to wear a special ritual robe for it, which was later burned.

You see a wrong burial or interment process, or bad Yin Feng Shui will cause all sorts of problems to the ones left behind. But, as mentioned, also to the ones that was buried.

What are these problems? Well, it can range from extreme financial bad luck or grave ill health, or even turbulent and chaotic relationships. I know of a person who is unable to have a child only because of an alleged mistake in the burial site of her husband’s grandfather. Another loss all his family’s wealth when he didn’t have the proper direction of his mother’s tomb.

We can get rid of all these problems and potentials issues if one resorts to cremation. Of course, one has to consult a Feng Shui as to what is the best time to cremate a person, but that is the only concern one has to deal with, because with cremation, you actually take out the entire chi left by the consciousness of the person who passed away. In a way, you also get rid of the vessel and in the process you take away the entire chi also. That is why, when Westerners cremate and throw the ashes on the sea or mountain or even Niagara Falls, there is no bad luck that is created because there is no chi that comes with it.

Basic Buddhism 7: Buddha Dipankara – A Powerful Protector, A Wealth Enhancing and Wealth Protecting Buddha, Patron Protector Buddha for Sailors or Seamen, and the Buddha Who Predicted the Enlightenment of Sakyamuni Buddha!

Published Setyembre 22, 2016 by jptan2012

A lot of you, especially if you are a regular reader of this blog, may know Amitabha Buddha, Sakyamuni Buddha / Shakyamuni Buddha, and Medicine Buddha. But not many will know Dipankara Buddha (also spelled as Dipamkara Buddha), however, serious students will most likely have an inkling as to which Buddha Dipankara is and or at the very least would have read about Him in some of the sutras. In fact, if you follow one of my suggestions to recite – a – sutra, especially “The Diamond of Perfect Wisdom Sutra” (also called The Diamond Sutra, The Vajra Cutter Perfection of Wisdom Sutra, The Vajra Sutra, The Vajra Cutter Sutra) mentions Buddha Dipankara several times. In the said sutra, Buddha Sakyamuni told his followers that Dipankara Buddha was His teacher in a previous life.

Buddha Dipankara is a very powerful protector, and is considered as the patron protector Buddha for sailors. According to my Guru Lama, Dipamkara Buddha is also the patron protector Buddha of all seamen and sea women. Practically anybody who works on a ship or in the sea. You have to note that during early times major traders or major trading involves sailor and the sea, thus Buddha Dipankara is considered as a powerful wealth enhancing and wealth protecting Buddha. Not only will he protect your wealth, but he will also help enhance your wealth luck.

But who is Dipankara Buddha?dipamkara-buddha1

Dipankara / Dipamkara Buddha is called as on the Buddha of the Past. Most of you would know that there have been a lot of Buddha in the past, and Buddha of the Present is Sakyamuni Buddha, and the Buddha of the Future is going to be Bodhisattva Maitreya (otherwise known as “The Happy Fat Buddha”). Dipankara Buddha is one of the Buddha of the Past, but since he plays a prominent role in the life and eventual enlightenment of the Buddha of the Present, the Historical Buddha – Sakyamuni Buddha, Dipankara Buddha is considered as THE Buddha of the Past in the Buddhas of the Three Times.

The Buddhas of the Three Times are: Dipankara Buddha (Buddha of the Past), Sakyamuni Buddha (Buddha of the Present), and Maitreya Buddha (Buddha of the Future).

Dipankara Buddha in Chinese is called 燃燈佛 (pinyin Rándēng Fo).dipankara-buddha-2

In Buddhism, it is estimated that Dipankara Buddha lives on Earth about one hundred thousand years ago. While there no archeological proof of Buddha Dipankara’s existence, he was prominently mentioned by Shakyamuni Buddha himself in several of the sutras.

Dipankara means “Lamp Bearer”, and he was accorded this name because he was the one who showed and predicted that Sakyamuni Buddha is going to be a Buddha, and this happened even before Sakyamuni Buddha was born in his latest physical body as Siddhartha Gautama.

Dipamkara Buddha is usually depicted as a sitting Buddha, although there a few one’s that shows him as a standing Buddha these are usually found in Laos, Nepal, and some parts of China. The most common images of Dipankara Buddha depict him together with Bodhisattva Manjushri and Bodhisattva Vajrapani. This is because it is stated in the sutras that Vajrapani Bodhisattva is also one of the most powerful protector amongst the Bodhisattvas and Bodhisattva acts as his ‘assistant’ (for the lack of an appropriate term) when it comes to protecting people, and Manjushri Bodhisattva because we all need wisdom even when we are protected. Another image of Dipankara Buddha is with Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva (also known as Kuan Yin Bodhisattva, Guan Yin Bodhisattva, Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva, Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva) and still Bodhisattva Vajrapani. Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara is to represent compassion. If you notice Bodhisattva Vajrapani is present at both times because Vajrapani Bodhisattva is one of the most powerful protective Bodhisattva, but like Buddha Dipankara he is also great wealth enhancing Bodhisattva.

Both Dipankara Bodhisattva and Vajrapani Bodhisattva have very similar qualities that they usually go together. In fact, in making with what is regarded as the most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon, the Vajrapani Ruel, the high-ranking monks usually also call on Buddha Dipankara (this was shared with me by my Guru Lama).dipankara-buddha

The secondary depiction of Buddha Dipamkara is with Buddha Sakyamuni (Buddha Shakyamuni) and Buddha Maitreya. This is to represent their stature as the Buddha of the Three Times.

One of the greatest manifestation of Buddha Dipankara is when he predicted the enlightenment of Buddha Sakyamuni, furthermore, it is said that he also predicted that Mahakasyapa and Ananda would be Shakyamuni Buddha’s acolytes.

To be able to tap into the power or energies of Buddha Dipankara, you can wear his image, prominently display his image in your home or office, and more importantly honor him by chanting Namo Rándēng Fo or Namo Dipankara Buddha. Do it 108x under deep meditation.

According to my Guru Lama, chanting the Namo Rándēng Fo and Om Vajrapani Hum while holding the Vajrapani Ruel will make the ruel more powerful.
