Chant the mantras as a discipline for accelerating your
spiritual development and improving the quality of your life. Chant the first
mantra 3000x every day for 7 consecutive days. Then chant the second mantra for
the same number of times and the same number of days. Follow this same chanting
procedure and discipline with the third and fourth mantras. This whole cycle
requires 28 days to complete or one moon-cycle. You may repeat the discipline
for as many moon-cycles as you wish. Choose an auspicious day to commence your
chanting-discipline. If you are not able to chant all of the mantras in a
single moon-cycle you may rest for a few days after every 7-day chanting of one
of the mantras and resume when you have gathered sufficient strength. This
practice and discipline bestows wonderful benefits that you will gradually
There are many systems of predictions that enable us to know
our future: Astrology, Palmistry, Divination, Tarot etc. The simplest and most
popular amongst of all is the palmistry. There is another method which a person
can know the future, which is through the practice of Panchanguli Sadhana.
Panch-anguli is the deity of Kaal Gyaan i.e. who can help
one know about Time. Through her Sadhana a person could easily foresee future happenings
hence mishaps can be avoided. Also it is through Her Sadhana that a person
could become expert in Palmistry and a reliable soothsayer.

he/she should chant the following Mantra meditating on the form of the Goddess:
of Great Perfection is a controversial one as one would need to take a completely
different view towards how he/she looks at the concept of enlightenment. Some scholar
treat Great Perfection has the same root as Zen Buddhism but not less denied
this assumption. In fact, I would think that the Great Perfection is not
related to Maha Yoga and the Anuttara Yoga as it has a different concept all
(胜喜金刚) in “Three Points That Strike The
Essence” (捶击三要) pointed
out that one should:
state of mind,
Have confident in it,
So, what is
the ‘state of mind’ refers to?
is no difference between enlightenment and cycle of rebirth.
is no difference amongst the Trikaya: Dharmakaya, Sambhogakaya and Nirmanakaya.
our mind is at peace, it is said to be in Dharmakaya form.
our mind is in enjoyment, it is said to be in Sambhogakaya form.
our mind is changing, it is said to be in Nirmanakaya form.
one has understood one’s mind, the below conclusion can be made:
(enlightenment) cannot be achieved as our mind changes state constantly. The Theravada
Buddhists can meditate for a very long time but when they awake from their
meditative state, they shall fall into the cycle of rebirth. So, in Great
Perfection View, as long as one keeps the view that there is no difference
between Nirvana and cycle of rebirths; then it does not matter where the person
land and hell had never existed; it is all in the state of our mind. So Great Perfection
in effect, thinks that practices of Maha Yoga and Anuttara Yoga; also the
Amitabah pure lands are all never existed.
theories were made based on no one has returned from enlightenment and preach
about it (logically speaking); including the enlightened one!
Rinpoche has spoken the below Great Perfection Wish to a few disciples in
Europe about the "importance of three types of speech":
"It is hoped that we
have great confidence in our view,
There is no difference
between Nirvana and cycles of rebirth.
It is hoped that what
we practice is perfected and fortified,
We are dwelling at our
unchanged state (of mind).
It is hoped whatever
we do receives great accomplishment,
All that is done
naturally indeed according our heart.
It is hoped that our
Dharmakaya automatically in perfection,
We shall be able to
surpass whatever we have proved and determined."
(From the book In Praise Of The History of Tibetan Ningmapa Lineage)
Mind blowing as it sounds, perhaps
this is the reason why Great Perfection is not taught openly but only to a few
qualified disciples. The above view will definitely ruin the core foundation of
many Buddhist schools. It is up to individual to choose if he/she want to
accept the above points.
concern mothers, fathers, grandfathers, grandmothers, brothers, sisters, in laws;
friends came to be and ask:
“Why is good Mary not married yet? She is
already 40+, she has good career etc.”
“Why is good old John still single? He has
almost everything in life…”
many reasons why a person remains single and unattached to date.
signs can be found from astrology or Feng Shui audit:
astrology, if the character of a lady is too strong, too dry or she is destined
to have no husband; then this lady will remain single. Likewise, if a man has
no fortune, then he also would not have a wife in this life.
Shui, if the front door of the house a person dwells in faces flying star 5 and
2, then this person is likely to remain single too as long as he/she stays in
there is a third aspect according Taoist’s view:
stays single over 30 years old may be due to his/her previous partner is still
attached to him/her. This may be due to the fact that this person’s relation
with his/her previous life partner was too good or too bad. So much so that the
soul of his/her partner followed this person to current life.”
In order to
end this relationship, a ritual called ‘sending off a kid’ need to be carried
out. The ‘kid’ here refers to the person who is still single. In Chinese
custom, anyone who is still single is known as a ‘kid’ even he/she is already
100 years old.
is not complicate but it needs to be carried out by a second person who may be
the person’s nephew or niece, ideally this person is younger than the bachelor.
After an auspicious date is selected, offerings items such as a paper manikin,
joss papers and a small paper boat or horse of some sort is burnt at the
nearest road junction or river.
If the item
is carried out correctly, then the bachelor would hear of good news in a
relative short time, some say 100 days or so. I supposed, any single and
attached persons may try this ritual if he/she has fate in it. After all, it
only cost a few dollars if he/she performs this ritual him/herself. Of course,
please don’t forget to give a red packet (money) to the person who is
performing the ritual for good omen.
Items required: the hundred solutions (biggest piece), the paper manikin, the gold foils and the silver foils.
I like to
keep a few simple Taoist rituals at hand as they can be very simple and
effective way to solve my day to day issues.
experience that after you have visited a funeral ceremony, a graveyard or after
a night out, you suddenly feel headache, drowsy with light feverish? If you do,
then Taoists believe that you may be affected by wandering spirits.
many ways to go about tackling such a spirit intrusion issue, the below method
is my favorite as it has been tried and tested. This method is also good for
those having low spirits.
you will need:
piece of hundred solutions, the biggest piece (百解符)
paper manikin, male/female (替身)
gold foils (金纸)
silver foils (银纸)
can be done at any time.
a piece of ‘hundred solutions, a paper manikin, 3~5 pieces of gold and silver
foils each. Now, sweep the papers top down a few times until you feel alright.
After you are done, burn the papers outside of your house as offerings to
whatever there is to leave in peace. Whatever you do, please don’t burn the
paper offerings in your house!
You may need
to repeat this ritual a few times if the condition is severe. This method is
also applicable to light case of mental disorders.
the above materials can be purchased in Chinese shops selling Taoist artifacts.
There are some shops in US and Europe selling similar items too. If you do it
right, you can save hundreds of dollars consulting Taoists!
like to setup altars in or beside their business premises to appease local
spirits. Let us first exclude why multinational companies are doing flying
colors without the need to offer to spirits; or any other religious reasons. Do
you aware that for small medium businesses; what you worship affects the well
beings of your household and your businesses?
example, if you are doing a business that serves general public: retail stores,
coffee shop, sundry shops, casinos, hotels etc. Then if you worship Tibetan
Tantric deities such as Yamantaka, Vajrakilaya, Hayagriva, Kalachakra and etc,
then your business would probably not so good. The reason is that the practice
of Maha Yoga and Anuttara Yoga are based on the Theory of Emptiness. It is also
due to the fact that the energy generated by these tantric deities and related
human bone ritual implements wards off potential customers. If you don’t
believe me, try to paint the image of a human skull in your hotel or sundry
shop; I bet you shall see the number of your customer declines faster than you
I have some
folks came to me complaining of problematic spouse relationships and the loss
of old customers to their competitors. After some auditing and questioning, I
only found they were practicing Vajrakilaya or the like. In order to understand
this scenario, we first need to understand that the mantra of Vajrakilaya
means: binding and burning of all demons… And we normally describe some who
cannot behave themselves as ‘demonic’ or ‘satanic’; so these folks who chanted
Vajrakilaya mantra in his house everyday indirectly means that these people are
‘at war’ with their spouse or kids every day. Now you can imagine what would
happen if a shop owner quarrels with his/her customers? The customers certainly
gone off to other competitors!
folks, I normally advised them to switch to 5 ghosts (五鬼) or if the business is larger, then the 5
legionnaires (五营兵). I was
surprised of the changes after the business folks had switched to make
offerings to spirits, their businesses not only recovered but expanding!
guess that since the number of spirits/ghosts are plentiful everywhere, so they
would bring in customers from all directions. Though the ghostly brothers and
sisters are not as powerful as Tantric gods and goddesses, they are abundance
in number and they are also more incline to help their worshippers with some food offerings
common belief, ghosts are no more harmful than the negative energy generated by
Tantric deities. Would you choose to go to a place with negative destructive
energy as if a cemetery or a place as cozy as a morning market place? If you
only try to make some food offerings in front of your shop twice a month consistently
for a few months, I assure you that you would see positive changes in 6 month’s
time. But if you would like to perform the ritual for a longer time, then you
would need appropriate ritual to control the spirits or problems may arise.
that Tantric rituals are not all powerful, and that the Taoist rituals can be
pretty useful and helpful at times too!
transference are variations of Taoist magic popular among the Miao and Yao
tribes normally meant for healing or protection. People believe sores, rash,
tumor, toothache and even pains can be transferred to a tree or plants. I have
heard the story that some Miao folks remained unharmed despite being brutally
attacked by their enemies using sticks. I have collected some transference rituals
below for your reference:
Rash and measles
healer and patient must stand one foot in and one foot out at threshold of the
main door. A straw should be used to make a transverse measurement and the
patient is then asked to cough once. After that, the straw is broken and then
thrown away. The healer will feel his/her nape itches but it will subside in a
few days. Be careful as not to let others to stand beside.
healer and patient should stand as above. After that the healer should take a
needle to cut 3 pieces of strings transversely from the patient’s garment and
then the patient is asked to cough once. Once the strings are broken, and the
patient shall be cured.
healer would take a piece of paper and roll it up; wet it with some vegetable
oil. Now the patient is asked to stand facing a wall. The healer would use his
left finger to rub onto the wall in order to collect some dirt. After rubbing
the wall once, he/she would then recite the mantra: “Dragon head, dragon and
tiger burnt in fire; only the dragon head is burnt not the tiger.”
Pain relieves (止痛):
·There is a saying in Traditional Chinese
Medicine: “Amongst all of the sickness, taking care of pain is first and
foremost.” It is certainly true that once pain is relieved, the sickness is
already half cured.
·In this method, a healer would first inscribe the
character ‘令’ and then
another 4 similar characters. Simultaneously, he/she would recite: “I am
retrieving the order of forbiddance, hence removing the mountain of 5 elements,
by digging up the waters of rivers; I am tying up the dragon onto seaside.”
·First, one must get a piece of iron nail and
bite it with the sore tooth. After that he should use the iron nail to continuously
striking on the top of a piece of copper rod and chanting non-stop: “no more
pain, no more pain, I am shouting until the wind of worms retreat.” After
chanting for a while, the person should nail the nail completely into the tree.
Assaults by sticks (寄打):
·There is a set of rituals transferred down from
Miao masters. The mantra reads like: “… the planks transformed into goose
feathers, the sticks into wicks, the assailants became shrimps and ants. 1000
strokes on me, 1000 strokes transferred out. All the shouts are transferred
beside a huge gong. For 10000 strokes on me, 10000 strokes are transferred out;
my body is transferred into the Immortal Mountain…”
Of course there are many more similar rituals. However, I
cannot answer the question if the above rituals work. It is really up to each
person to evaluate and decide.
