Let Us All Pray for Peace and Protection for the Philippines and Asia!

Published Hulyo 15, 2016 by jptan2012

The Philippines is currently in a very volatile situation, we just won the in the international court in The Hague, and while there is much reason to celebrate; the country was also put in a compromising situation. Why? Because China is a big bully and it is clear that they won’t honor the ruling and in fact has already called it null and void. The Philippines interim Department of Foreign Affairs secretary, Perfecto Yasay, who was involve in a controversy when he was still a SEC Chairman, has acknowledge this but unfortunately he has offered a less appealing ‘solution’ which earned him the ire of many Filipinos.

I will no longer go into the details of the matter. Simply Google it and you would know what is the case all about. Whether it is called South China Sea or West Philippine Sea, one thing is clear, the country is in a volatile situation at the moment. Worst situation is go into war, and while other countries has started to show their support by sending forces in the country, when China declares war with us and if with our without allies it is going to be a delicate and precarious situation with us.

It is because of this I strongly urge all my readers to please pray for the Philippines and the Southeast Asian countries. Please pray the following mantras everyday, 108 times a day each mantra, for the next 6 months:

  1. OM AMI DEWA HRIH
  2. OM MUNI MUNI MAHĀ MUNI YE SOHA
  3. TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA
  4. OM MANI PADME HUM
  5. OM MAITRI MAHĀ MAITRI MAITREYA SOHA
  6. OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM
  7. OM TARE TUTTARE TURE MAMA AYUR PUNYE JNANA PUSHTIM KURU SOHA
  8. OM VAJRAPANI HUM
  9. OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT
  10. TADYATHA OM ANALE ANALE KHASAME KHASAME BHAYRE BHAYRE SAUMA SAUME SARVA BUDDHA ADISHTANA ADISHTITE SOHA OM SARVA TATHAGATHA USHNISHA SITATAPUTRA HUM PHAT HUM MAMA HUM NI SOHA

Then you can recite the following sutras everyday also:

  1. The Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra
  2. The Diamond SutraEarth Store Bodhisattva Sutra
  3. The-Sutra-On-The-Original-Vows-And-Merits-Of-The-Medicine-Master-Lapis-Lazuli-Light-Tathagata or Medicine Sutra

Lastly, you can also offer oil, flowers, light (candle or synthetic), fruits and vegetables to images of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas for peace and protection.

Dedicate all the merits of these deeds to the protection of the Philippines and SEA and also for peace.

Furthermore, those who have the Vajrapani Ruel, which is regarded as the most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon, or the Surangama Mantra Amulet can help by putting the Vajrapani Ruel on top of the Philippines in a printed map, and the Surangama (also spelled as Shurangama) Mantra Amulet at center of Asia.

Fifteen Merit Days: A Gift From the Heaven to Help Protect Us From the Ill Effects of the Year! (Part 2)

Published Pebrero 5, 2016 by jptan2012

In my preceding post, which is also the 1st part of this post, I talked about what I call the ‘Fifteen Merit Days’ that will happen on Feb. 8, 2016 to Feb. 22, 2016. As mentioned in that post, it is very rarely that the Chinese New Year and Tibetan New Year will happen at the same time, and because of this it created a special Fifteen Merit Days that can help protect us from the ill effects of the year and also create good karma for us.

Any good deeds are going to be have doubled or tripled merits.

But today, allow me some of the traditional way to earn merits on the said 15 Merit Days.

Chant the following mantras and Buddha or Bodhisattva names:

  1. Amitabha Buddha Mantra (OM AMI DEWA HRIH)
  2. Shakyamuni Buddha Mantra (OM MUNI MUNI MAHAY MUNI YE SOHA)
  3. Medicine Buddha Mantra (TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA)
  4. Mantra of the Compassionate Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara / Kuan Yin (OM MANI PADME HUM)
  5. Mantra of Ksitigarbha Buddha (OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM)
  6. Name of Samantabhadra Bodhisattva (NAMO TA XING PU XIEN PUSA)
  7. Mantra of Bodhisattva Manjushri (OM A RA PA TSA NA DHIH)
  8. Wish Fulfilling Manta and Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra (OM PADMO USHNISHA VIMALE HUM PHAT & OM HANU PASHA BHARA HEYE SOHA)
  9. Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani (OM VAJRAPANI HUM)
  10. Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrasattva (OM VAJRASATTVA HUM)

Recite the following Sutras:

  1. The Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra (Heart Sutra)
  2. The Diamond Cutter Sutra
  3. Sutra of the Medicine Buddha
  4. The Noble Stack of Auspiciousness Sutra
  5. The Buddha Speaks of Amitabha Sutra
  6. The Sutra on Impermanence

To do all these, it usually takes me 2 hours to finish all. You can omit some of the mantras or sutras mentioned on the list. However, remember the more you are able to do the more merit you’ll get. I especially recommend this to people who are sick or have a family who are sick and people born under the sign of the Ox and Tiger and also those who stay in the Northeast.

It will also be good if you can make vegetarian and fruit offering in the temple, as well as light and incense offering. Prostrating in front of an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva will also likewise add some merits.

Please note that you can add other mantras or sutras. Especially the Mantra of Goddess Tara, Yellow Dzambhala, and Maitreya Buddha.

Again to better understand the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey it will be good to read all the forecast. I know it is quite long but it is important for you to see the big picture.
