Vairocana Buddha Mantra 毗卢遮那佛咒




Vairocana (also knows as Vairochana or Mahavairocana) is a celestial Buddha who is often interpreted, in spiritual texts like the Flower Garland Sutra (Avatamsaka Sutra), as the Dharma Body of the historical Gautama Buddha.

Maha Vairocana Mantra lyrics:

Om Namo Bhagavate Sarvate Gate, Varsuddhani Rajaya, Ta Tha Ga Ta Ya

Arahate Sam Yak Sam Buddhaya, Ta Dya Tha Om Sodhani Sodhani

Sarva Papam, Vishodani Suddhe Visuddhe, Sarwa Karma Avarana

Visudhani Ya Soha.


Vairocana Mantra meaning:

May all sentient beings have happiness and its causes,

May all sentient beings be free of suffering and its causes,

May all sentient beings never be separated from bliss without suffering,

May all sentient beings be in equanimity, free of bias, attachment and anger.

I learned this from repeated listening and singing along well before I took refuge with GM Lu!
Took refuge with GM Lu on 3 August 2008.

AND, this is the mantra that I have been chanting too when I visited Hong Kong from 5 to 7 August 2008.
Typhoon hit HK on 6 August 2008. 
My first experience with Typhoon! :)

Somehow, this mantra has ability to halt the rocking of the aircraft I was on, when the turbulence is real strong! :)

Remember that I shared that when I closed my eyes and draw upon bracelet of chanting beads on my right wrist, a Very tall standing Buddha appeared and his right palm seated the aircraft easily in the centre and the aircraft stopped rocking immediately!

Hahaha!

Benefits of chanting manta with sincerity and diligence do help!

At that time, I didn't know anything about Vairocana Buddha at all! :)

GM Lu did a homa in Seattle, and Yidam is Vairocana Buddha. 
Brings back memories!

因为“鱼”-fish 和“余” - excess 谐音,在中国传统的解梦观点中,梦见鱼一直和财富密切相关。
Fish and Excess sounds the same in Chinese Language, thus Chinese traditional dream interpretation centres or focuses on the constant & close correlation between Dream of sighting fish and wealth and auspiciousness.

  梦见鱼在清水中游动,象征你将得到财富和权力,或表示你现在的心情和处境很好,也可能预示你会有意外的收入或地位得到提升。
Dream of fish swimming around in clear water - signifies you are about to get wealth or power, Or, your mood now is very good, also can forecast you will have unpredicted income/bonus or promotion.

  梦见活鱼,要去海上旅行。
Dream of live-fish, going for a cruise vacation.

  梦见把垂死的鱼放回水中,让鱼复活,暗示你希望能凭自己的能力得到适当的职位,对事业有追求。
Dream of setting fish that are about to die back into water, enabling it to live again, hinting that you have hope of using your own ability to attain suitable position in career or have ambition in career.

  梦见买鱼,可能会继承亲属的遗产或接受赠予。
Dream of buying fish, possibly might be able to get inheritance from relatives or receive gift.

  梦见涉水捉鱼,预示你将靠自己的能力和过人的胆识得到自己所要的财富。
Dream of catching fish in water, predict that you can depend on your own strength and above-others' guts to secure your own wealth.

  梦见有人送自己鱼,预示将得到财物,或可能会被邀参加婚礼。如果赠送的是干鱼,表示你的生活会有盈余。
  梦见在清澈的水里钓鱼,并且能见到鱼在咬食,表示你将得到你想要的东西,实现心愿。
  梦见钓到大鱼,吉利,诸事如意,女人将嫁入富贵人家,求官的得官,求财的得财。
  梦见捞起金鱼,预示你可能会经历奇遇,比如在街上与昔日好友突然重逢。
  梦里抓住鱼,预示你会取得成功,抓住的鱼越大,则成功越大。
  梦见鱼在井水里,预示你将会发财,或获得意想不到的收入。
  梦见吃鱼,恋爱运稍有低迷,也意味着身体强健,幸福安康。

Telinga Menolak Mendengar Kebenaran – Puja Asap



Dibagikan dengan anotasi oleh Lotuschef – 4 Januari 2016
Diterjemahkan oleh Lotus Nino
Sumber: 忠言逆耳-烟供 Ears Repel Truthful Words – Smoke Offering


[--- Ada beberapa bagian dari arsip percakapan ini yang diterjemahkan. ---]

CHAT:

18/09/2014, 10:12 - Lotuschef Lama: We must remember always that cultivation is for all n not for self to clear bad karma or become rich.
(Kita harus selalu ingat bahwa bersadhana adalah demi memberi manfaat bagi semua insan, tidak hanya untuk membersihkan karma buruk diri sendiri ataupun untuk menjadi kaya.)

18/09/2014, 10:13 - B: TaTS what I told them last nite in charbroil. But they still wan to go ahead with the smoke offering
I dun join them in smoke offering unless its chant bai zi Ming zhou
Me n my husband decided to heed your advice n 修四加行 (4 Preliminaries)

18/09/2014, 10:15 - Lotuschef Lama: U read the article I wrote about Maha mudra?

18/09/2014, 10:15 - B: Ya

18/09/2014, 10:16 - Lotuschef Lama: Seem really hard for ppl to understand how to do a good job with One!
Can't even do One job well then go take on another n result in both also failed.
(Memang sulit membuat orang-orang paham bagaimana melatih Satu Hal dengan dengan baik! Kalau tak mampu melakukan Satu Tugas dengan baik, lalu mencoba melakukan yang lain, dua-duanya pasti gagal.)

Like answer to Assignment 3 part 2. Hehe. Simple but most never bother to apply what shizun n I shared.

18/09/2014, 10:19 - B: But your mindset must be clear
Its not for our own benefits
Its to help all sentient beings
(Pola pikirmu harus jernih, tidak untuk keuntungan diri sendiri, namun demi membantu para insan yang berperasaan.)

18/09/2014, 10:19 - Lotuschef Lama: Simple things are very important though. Especially in Buddha's teachings
(Banyak hal yang sederhana namun sangat penting. Terutama dalam ajaran Sang Buddha.)

18/09/2014, 10:24 - Lotuschef Lama: I will be back in SG around Christmas.

18/09/2014, 10:26 - B: Ok

19/09/2014, 20:07 - B: Hi Fashi

19/09/2014, 20:07 - B: If u going to R house on Sep 27, my family can fetch u

19/09/2014, 20:11 - Lotuschef Lama: I don't think can go. The place is a greater mess today n going to be worse as they lay tiles n cut them. Dust will fly all over. My neighbor's is good example. Then the other flats they started to do or going to do next week onwards will continue to be a pollution problem. I can't breathe easy too. Imagine wearing a face mask to sleep?

19/09/2014, 20:11 - B: Hahaha....understand

19/09/2014, 20:13 - Lotuschef Lama: Right now just clean up my room n cover the toilet gap. Bath n planning to rest. Like last nite, I so tired after the cleaning, I sleep without dinner!
Lucky only 10 days inside house. N 5 days outside. Else I don't know when I can breathe easy again.

19/09/2014, 20:15 - B: I see...lol
Am surprised u still have energy to write blog

19/09/2014, 20:15 - Lotuschef Lama: I heard the haze is back too. N I am coughing

19/09/2014, 20:15 - B: Ya. Today psi quite high
Please take care

19/09/2014, 20:16 - Lotuschef Lama: Hai. Don't tell you all; then later harder to rescue you all lol

19/09/2014, 20:17 - B: Hahaha....the group wan to change back to cultivate Bai zi Ming zhou tomorrow

19/09/2014, 20:17 - Lotuschef Lama: Anyway, still depends on personal choice to listen or not.

19/09/2014, 20:17 - B: Except S
I told them I won't join smoke offering cultivation in future. I only go if it is bai zi Ming zhou

19/09/2014, 20:18 - Lotuschef Lama: I woke at 3 am. So write something or read researched materials

19/09/2014, 20:18 - B: Then suddenly received watsapp saying they wan change back to bai zi Ming zhou
But S still prefer we go ahead with smoke offering tomorrow

19/09/2014, 20:20 - Lotuschef Lama: LK emailed me this morning thanking me for the email advising you all on cultivation n feng shui

19/09/2014, 20:20 - B: She very kind de

19/09/2014, 20:22 - Lotuschef Lama: S probably wants to learn Smoke offering.
(S mungkin ingin belajar dan melatih Puja Asap).

19/09/2014, 20:23 - B: Maybe

19/09/2014, 20:23 - Lotuschef Lama: Hai! Can do one well, then go learn another. Big problem!
That's why he lost total trust in GM n think he needs to do something else as bai zi ming not good enough!
(Kalau satu hal bisa dilatih dengan baik, barulah belajar lainnya. Ini masalah besar! Makanya ia kehilangan kepercayaan kepada Mahaguru, ia pikir ia perlu melakukan hal lain karena merasa mantra 100-aksara masih kurang bagus!)

19/09/2014, 20:28 - Lotuschef Lama: Never mind what others think. I advise them is for their good. Choice us their's to accept or scold me :) :) :)

19/09/2014, 20:28 - B: :) That's what I think too

19/09/2014, 20:28 - Lotuschef Lama: When desperate even more easy to make big mistakes
(Orang yang putus asa akan lebih mudah melakukan kesalahan besar.)

19/09/2014, 20:28 - B: True

19/09/2014, 20:29 - Lotuschef Lama: Many scold me but I am still fine.
 Why? My intent is to help n not to harm.

19/09/2014, 20:30 - B: :)

19/09/2014, 20:30 - Lotuschef Lama: W is good example to follow.
Concentrate on One
(W adalah teladan yang baik. Ia berkonsentrasi pada Satu pelatihan.)

19/09/2014, 20:30 - B: Ya
Now my husband oso concentrate on one

19/09/2014, 20:31 - Lotuschef Lama: Staying focus. He got big clients that just somehow sent by GM

19/09/2014, 20:31 - B: Who? W?

19/09/2014, 20:31 - Lotuschef Lama: others envy him.
(Makanya orang-orang lain menjadi iri padanya.)

19/09/2014, 20:32 - B: Then they must cultivate as diligently as W ma

19/09/2014, 20:32 - B: N do more charity

19/09/2014, 20:32 - Lotuschef Lama: Ya lol. So easy to believe R, showed they not focus at all

19/09/2014, 20:33 - B: Me too....at first. Lol
Luckily I go meet u

19/09/2014, 20:33 - Lotuschef Lama: Ya. W listened to me n do charity.
GM makes sure you don't go wrong way mah.
GM knows best. But ppl just can't be patient n good n cultivate properly
(W mau mendengarku dan juga beramal. Mahaguru pasti memastikan kamu tak akan salah jalan. Beliau tahu yang terbaik, namun orang-orang tak punya kesabaran dan tak mau berubah menjadi lebih baik dan bersadhana dengan benar.)

19/09/2014, 20:34 - B: R oso trying to help us but maybe wrong way loh. He's not totally at fault.

19/09/2014, 20:35 - Lotuschef Lama: He got too much he thinks need to do n have.
(R ini pikirannya banyak sekali dan merasa perlu melakukan ini dan itu, harus punya ini dan itu.)

19/09/2014, 20:35 - B: He really 用心 (use heart - put in efforts) in guiding us the smoke offering

19/09/2014, 20:36 - Lotuschef Lama: That's not the point. In suggesting smoke offering as alternative, shows he is unsure bai zi ming can help him n H clear karmic foes.
(Menyarankan Puja Asap sebagai alternatif, menunjukkan bahwa ia tak yakin kalau mantra 100-aksara mampu menolongnya dan menyucikan karma buruknya.)

19/09/2014, 20:37 - B: I c
At least now they oso propose change back to b z m z

19/09/2014, 20:37 - Lotuschef Lama: That's why I always explain but no one seems to remember n apply. Hahaha!
My fault! I lousy teacher! :) :) :)

19/09/2014, 20:38 - B: Hahaha
No negative thoughts
U are number one teacher
Even if the whole world 抛弃你 (desert you) , I will standby u :)

19/09/2014, 20:40 - Lotuschef Lama: I got GM la. Hehe!

19/09/2014, 20:40 - B: Ya ya me too

19/09/2014, 20:41 - Lotuschef Lama: They don't understand my sharing then best don't waste my time teaching them the same thing over n over again lol

19/09/2014, 20:41 - B: If they confirm change to b z m z tomorrow, then I can go for cultivation le . Yeah
This statement will make people misunderstood that u gave up on us

19/09/2014, 20:42 - Lotuschef Lama: Else u stay at home n do with your hubby n girls lol

19/09/2014, 20:42 - B: Ya. Was planning to do tat before receiving their msg

19/09/2014, 20:42 - Lotuschef Lama: Like GM, I will not neglect anyone.

19/09/2014, 20:42 - B: That's what I tell them

19/09/2014, 20:43 - Lotuschef Lama: But Affinity must be matured for GM or me to help.
(Supaya Mahaguru ataupun aku bisa menolong, jodoh harus sudah matang dulu.)

19/09/2014, 20:43 - B: I really 深深体会 ( deeply experienced) this affinity after this incident
Those with heavy karmic foes 是听不进去的 (is can't listen and understand)

19/09/2014, 20:44 - Lotuschef Lama: 三不能度:没缘; 不信; 业障深。
(3 groups that can't succour : No Affinity; Do not believe; Heavy karmic negatives or sins)
(3 kelompok yang tak bisa diselamatkan oleh Buddha: Tiada Jodoh, Tidak Percaya, Karma Buruk terlampau berat)

19/09/2014, 20:45 - B: True
I'm so thankful that I have 缘 (Affinity)

19/09/2014, 20:45 - Lotuschef Lama: 这是佛说的。(This is Buddha's words)
(Demikianlah yang dikatakan Sang Buddha).

19/09/2014, 20:45 - B: Haha

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Di ceramah terbaru-Nya (per tanggal publikasi sumber artikel), Mahaguru Lu memberikan peringatan mengenai [Sadhana Puja Asap] kepada para murid.
Juga kepada mereka yang melakukan sadhana tersebut di pekuburan!

Mahaguru Lu bilang bila dilakukan di rumah, lakukanlah di depan altar atau di luar jendela!
MENGAPA?

Hahaha!
Beliau bilang: “Hantu gampang diundang, tapi susah dipulangkan!”

Mengenai murid dan non-murid yang pernah bersadhana bersamaku selama beberapa waktu, aku mengetahui apakah mereka cocok untuk melatih sadhana tertentu atau tidak.
Aku bahkan meluangkan waktuku untuk secara pribadi mengajar mereka yang menunjukkan ketulusan dan ketekunan!

Tugas terdahulu mengenai Sadhana Puja Asap merupakan bukti yang cukup jelas yang menunjukkan bahwa tak satupun dari para peserta, baik lokal maupun asing, yang memahami pentingnya Makna Bersadhana!

Yang artinya Tak Punya Dasar-dasar yang Dibutuhkan!

Sepertinya [kemampuan untuk bertahan] tidak dimiliki oleh para murid saat mereka berpikir untuk mencari berbagai pengganti Sadhana 4 Prayoga, yang seharusnya menjadi sadhana awal dan juga akhir untuk mencapai Kebuddhaan!

Jadi bagaimana?

Berhubung kata-kataku tak cukup bagus, maka Dengarkanlah Mahaguru Lu, seorang Buddha Hidup!

DAN, saat kamu telah berhasil melatih Guru & Vajrasattva Yoga, KAMU tak perlu kuatir mau melatih sadhana apapun, karena sadhana apapun akan menjadi “sepotong kue” (maksudnya: mudah, bukan masalah). Kamu akan mendapatkan keberhasilan dan mampu melakukannya dengan efektif!

Dengan Guru Yoga & Vajrasattva Yoga, KAMU juga akan beryoga dengan yidam mana saja yang kamu inginkan!

Saat hatimu memanggil, mereka akan segera “melaporkan” kehadiran mereka! :)

Tentu saja kamu tak harus mempercayaiku!

Cukup dengarkan Mahaguru Lu saja!


Salam semuanya.

那里不一样 What's the Difference?




Above: The Individual Lotus offering in dedication from named individuals to Divinities.
 Each of these is SGD 15/-




Above: Dedication packs to one's Karmic foes!
These packs are now SGD 88 each.

A student subscribed regularly for one lotus offering in dedication to Divinities on behalf of his karmic foes of this and past lifetimes.

I advised another to do 3 or 7 Karmic foes dedication packs of SGD 88 each, to his karmic foes.

SGD 15 & SGD 88 each?

Other than the price differences, what else is different and which would you choose for your own situation?

Hahaha!

Each Individual's resources and karmic negative levels are different of course, BUT what will suit you most?

Find your own answers!
