I’m once again TEMPORARILY BREAKING my vow to take a short blog break to write an important piece on how to help the people of Nepal and Tibet.
A few posts ago, I mentioned that all the Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras Amulet bought until the end of the year will go to the helping all sentient beings affected by the killer quake in Nepal and Tibet. Also, all the money from the remaining Vajrapani Ruels will also go to the people of Tibet who unfortunately because they are under China’s rule won’t be able to get as much international aid.
Today, I just want to write about another way you can send help and at the same time receive blessings. My Guru Lama has sent me several pieces of special Tibetan Turquoise. Because I’m on blog break, this Tibetan Turquoise will be made available only to people whom personally knows me. This is to help raise funds for the sentient beings of Tibet, who were also severely affected by the earthquake.
But what is a Turquoise. A Turquoise is a kind semi – precious stone that has very good protective, wisdom generating, and wealth stone. The internet is a treasure trove of information about all the wonderful energies and power or luck what can get with a turquoise so I really won’t go into detail about it. But allow me to share here, verbatim, what the website Crystal Vault has to say about the power of Turquoise.
For centuries Turquoise has been recognized as possessing the power to protect riders from injury due to falls. First used as amulets by Turkish soldiers, on their persons and attached to their bridles and trappings, it later came to be used for protection against falls of any kind. [Kunz, 109] Turquoise is also reputed to be influenced by the physical condition of the person who wears it. It is thought to grow pale when its owner is sick or sad, lose all color when the person dies, and gradually recover its color when transferred to a new healthy owner, its color deepening each day. [Fernie, 268]
Historically, Turquoise is credited with the property of securing friendly regard, verifying the traditional saying that “he, or she, who owns a Turquoise will never want for a friend.” [Fernie, 37] In the Orient, a Turquoise ring was worn as a protector against all things evil. The proverb states: “Given by a loving hand it brings with it happiness and good fortune.” However, the ring emitted protective energy only if the stone was given by a friend. It was believed to restore clear vision to the mind when the thinking became muddled and thus ensured good fortune. [Mella, 111]
Turquoise has always been valued as an ornamental gem, often considered a symbol of male power. Anselmus de Boot, court physician of Emperor Rudolph II, wrote in 1609 that Turquoise was so highly regarded by men that no man considered his hand to be well adorned unless he wore a fine Turquoise. [Kunz, 111] Today, we know Turquoise empowers men and women equally, and worn or carried, it is a talisman of luck, success, ambition, creativity and wealth. [Eason, 239]
In the workplace, Turquoise promotes leadership, assists relocation or regular travel associated with career, and helps avoid unwise investments. It helps overcome writer’s block, and is a stone of clear communication when giving information; an especially good amulet for those who work in the law, or for local or central government. [Eason, 41, 239] Turquoise is especially recommended for accountants and computer operators for mental relaxation, for those who work in radio or television to release anxiety, and for laborers to protect from bodily harm. [Mella, 129-132]
As a crystal for travel, Turquoise protects you and your possessions against theft, loss or attack, helps prevent accidents, especially falls, and even guards your pet. [Eason, 41-42] Attached to a collar, bridle, or cage, Turquoise prevents animals from straying or being stolen, and makes horses sure-footed and obedient to their riders.
It is especially useful for clearing the Throat Chakra, and blockages of suppressed self-expression. [Hall, 307] As jewelry it is worn by men and women alike, and considered a promise of fidelity and protectiveness to a lover or partner. It is used in sacred prayer beads, adorns musical instruments, prayer wheels and bells, and a Turquoise rosary is said to relate prayer to whatever deity is being invoked. Tibetan Turquoise is traditionally received as a gift to pass on its natural fortune-bringing powers, so if you buy your own, make it a gift to yourself. [Eason, 256]
But what I really want to share about this particular turquoise is that these are special pieces that have been with my Guru Lama since he was a novice, and was handed to him by his own Rinpoche. He was given 3 sets of this stone in which he should be giving to deserving monks, he has given one set to his own attendant who uses it as a prayer bead. The remaining two sets, because of the much needed help in Tibet, he decided to break into several pieces to make available to raise funds for the people of Tibet who were afflicted by the earthquake as much as Nepal. The only difference is since they are under the Chinese rule, international aid and news are unable to go in.
These pieces are very holy because for about 3 decades they reside in a temple and are under different precious relics, most recently with the tooth relic of the Buddha. Not only that Turquoise is already powerful crystals, but also these pieces are inscribed with powerful symbols of double happiness and longevity. So giving a piece of this to people who are sick or whose lives may be in danger will surely help extend their life and protect them from harm. Furthermore, having this will ensure that your romantic luck, and at the same time bring back lost love, or wandering husband or wife.
But most important of all, remember all those who wish to invite this will also send financial help to Tibet.
