On Your Own Steam 靠自己!


   






In a recent speech, GM Lu said for those who sponsored the Maha Chakra Vajra's event, they build affinity with Sakyamuni & Maitreya Buddhas.

He told a student that has recently pass away from an accident to follow Sakyamuni to his pureland.

For those that had build affinity with Maitreya through today's event, they can wait for The Dragon Flower's 3 meetings, when Maitreya Buddha will descend and beam light from his heart chakra to shine upon all present at one of the 3 meetings.

This light cleanses or purifies the subject and the subject can go to Pureland.

This is not an ideal path for a truly sincere cultivator though! :)

As per GM Lu's statements during the Maitreya Buddha's Homa on Chinese New Year's day, those that have lots of Karmic negatives will also be cleanse and send to Pureland!

Thus, it nullifies the need to cultivate and go to Pureland of your choice with successful cultivation and attainment of Buddhahood "On your own steam"!

Hahaha!

Its another "easy way out" that most craved! 

The point is: Are you a hopeless case that can't do the necessary purifying and ascending to Pureland "on your own steam"?

GM Lu mentioned the importance of waking up too in the same session.
Please heed his advice although you detested my advising you to "wake up please"!

Hahaha!

GM Lu also mentioned Light Orbs appearances and their significance!
If you didn't pick that up, go listen to the speech again.

我朋友说 My Friend Says


The above is taken in Semarang, Indonesia during a Pure Karma's event.

At first I thought the Visitor is my friend Ksitigarbha Boddhisattva.

On closer scrutiny, this visitor looks more like Boddhidharma, the Zen Founding Patriarch of the Central Land 中土 or  Central Plains 中原 Zen Buddhist Sector.

Whats my point? :)

Well, many of us starts a conversation with "My friend says".....

This is how the Truth always get distorted by word of mouth because each of us relate what we heard with different perception or discernment and thus what came out is always embroided with the Individual's own version as per his own interpretation and comprehension.

For a truly sincere and aspiring to be True Yogi, the Individual is responsible to Self's karmic influences and thus Must always do his utmost to adhere to the Truth.

Thus, one needs to ascertain what we heard or learn, or research into them before sharing with anyone.

However, it is of utmost importance when sharing Authentic Dharma to quote Buddha's or One's Root Guru, or any authentic masters or gurus, as accurately as possible in order not to create Negative Karma for self!

Do not start off with "My friend says..." when you have yet to ascertain the Truth! :)

If you do that frequently in one conversation, without substantiation, you will only show how shallow and lacking you are and having no mind or opinion of your own.
You are like a recording, playing back what others said!

GM Lu said: He said and you believed!!!

In Cultivation, One has to gain control of Self and be solely responsible for all One's deeds!

Can you try your best to do this?

Hahaha!

Yes, GM Lu said that One has to change One's unwholesome habits with cultivation of virtuous ones!

For example: All must help to remind LN that an enlightened one should not yell and shout, but must be reasonable! :)

There are sutras that only enlightened ones can accurately share!

Hold yourself in when you next attempt to relay someone's statements with "My friend says....'!

Rebirth Mantra 往生咒 - 超度 Bardo Delivery



Please refer to  This article resulted from walking through the Basic Sadhana of Cultivation devised by My Root Guru, the Living Buddha Lian Sheng, with some fellow students.
Sad to say that most students didn't fully understand the Basic steps preceding the Yidam Yoga practice.


This is one of them that most didn't bother or don't exactly know how to do properly and thus not effective at all.
The results: The students get disturbed easily and with their imagination going wild, they fear everything and blame it on others or blame their gurus for teaching them something that is not effective!

Hahaha!

Before you point finger at anyone next time, look inwards for the origin of all wrongs first!
Cheers.

12. 唸往生咒
手结大海超度手印。观想阿弥陀佛显现虚空,阿弥陀佛心轮射出一道强烈的红光加持我们日常生活中有意和无意伤害的生灵障类如鸡鸭牛羊猪、鱼虾、蚂蚁、细菌等等。


观想他们得到阿弥陀佛光的加持,业障消除,冤亲解散。
观想他们很开心的坐上莲花法船。
所有莲花法船化为金黄色的光点,集合成一条金黄色的河流,流入阿弥陀佛的心轮。
我们保持这样的观想,持往生咒七遍。

9. The Amitabha Rebirth Dharani


The Great Sea of Deliverance Mudra
Form the Great Sea Deliverance Mudra (like forming the Vajra Mudra and you turn the fingers inside) and visualise Amitabha Buddha appears in the Universe. 
From his heart chakra, a strong beam of pinkish light (combination of red, magenta and white) radiates and blesses all the beings you knowingly or unknowingly harm during the course of your daily activities. 
These are animals like pig, cow, lamb, chicken, duck, fish, crab, prawn, ants, cockroaches; bacteria, virus, and so on.

Visualise their karma are cleansed by the light and their karmic differences are resolved (visualise they are hugging each other).

Afterwards, visualise them boarding onto lotus vessels and these in turn are transformed into golden dots of light forming a golden river, flowing into Amitabha Buddha’s Heart Chakra.

While forming the mudra and maintaining this visualisation, recite the following dharani:

NAMO AMEE-TO POYE, TOTA KYA TOYE, TOTE YETA,
AMEE-LEE-TO POPEE, AMEE-LEE-TO SYE THAN POPEE,
AMEE-LEE-TO PEGYA-LANTE, AMEE-LEE-TO PEGYA-LANTO,
KYANEENEE, KYAKYANA, ZHEEDO KYALEE, SOHA. (7x)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In previous cultivation sessions, I shared the utilisation of Qi energy to move the small golden dots which are transformation of Dharma Vessels!
However, the efforts of students chanting this mantra with relevant visualisation as shared above are not effective.
The main reason is lack of Control of Qi energy from lack of practice of the 9-steps Breathing Technique taught by GM Lu.
The other is lack of visualisation "power", also due to lack of practice.
Another is lack of sincerity of purpose!

With poor Qi Energy control, the Dharma vessels or golden dots of light moves slowly upwards and then they might drop down again due to lack of Qi Energy to power their progress to Amitabha Buddha's Heart Chakra or Pureland.

I recalled a Dharma speaker, that is the Blue-collar in TBS, telling fellow student that he can't do bardo delivery for several reasons! :)

Well? 
If you visualise well the above method shared, there is no reason or excuse for claiming you can't do Bardo Delivery!

Dear all, still remember that I shared with all the Bardo delivery method of forming White Padmakumara's mudra, and using the left hand mudra which is the Lotus Dharma Vessel, place the subject (can be a dead cat or bird ... ) that you chanced upon on your way.

Then you chant Guru's mantra, and slowly raise your left hand with the formation of the lotus mudra, upwards. You can visualise that you handed the lotus vessel to Guru or if you can't do so, just move the lotus vessel with the subject for delivery upwards.

You can chant mantra 7 times or multiples of 7 or 108 or more.

Then complete with the Completion Mantra and thank Guru and all lineage gurus & all divinities.

Your sincerity make this practice works!

This is a part of basic practice before Yidam Yoga, therefore, please do this well. 

Cheers all

金刚手菩萨 Vajrapani -披甲护身 Armour Protection

This article resulted from walking through the Basic Sadhana of Cultivation devised by My Root Guru, the Living Buddha Lian Sheng, with some fellow students.

This is one of them that most didn't bother or don't exactly know how to do properly and thus not effective at all.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vajrapani

Vajrapāṇi (Sanskrit, "Vajra in [his] hand") is one of the earliest-appearing bodhisattvas in Mahayana Buddhism. He is the protector and guide of Gautama Buddhaand rose to symbolize the Buddha's power.

Vajrapani is extensively represented in Buddhist iconography as one of the three protective deities surrounding the Buddha. 
Each of them symbolizes one of the Buddha's virtues: 
Mañjuśrī manifests all the Buddhas' wisdom, 
Avalokiteśvara manifests all the Buddhas' compassion and 
Vajrapani manifests all the Buddhas' power as well as the power of all five tathāgatas.

Vajrapani is one of the earliest Dharmapalas and the only Buddhist deity to be mentioned in the Pāli Canon as well as be worshiped in the Shaolin Monastery, in Tibetan Buddhism and in Pure Land Buddhism (where he is known as Mahasthamaprapta and forms a triad with Amitābha and Avalokiteśvara). 

Manifestations of Vajrapani can also be found in many Buddhist temples in Japan as dharma protectors called Nio
Vajrapani is also associated with Acala, who is venerated as Fudo-Myō in Japan, where he is serenaded as the holder of the vajra.

The Buddhist Vajrapani is distinct from the entity mentioned in the Vedas as Indra, king of the gods and the most widely-mentioned deity in Hindu scriptures.

金刚手菩萨最早可能起源于部派佛教时期的密迹金刚
他长期随侍在释迦牟尼身边,担任护法,大乘佛教相信他是菩萨的化身,由释迦牟尼处领受许多秘密教法,并传承给后世。

密宗认为,金刚手菩萨是菩萨部大势至菩萨的忿怒像,与观世音菩萨文殊菩萨 

合称 “三族旌尊”,分别代表 “力量、慈悲、智慧” 三种特质。

或说,金刚手菩萨是 毗卢遮那佛 入普贤三昧而生出,梵文Vajrapani,
又名金刚手、密主金刚手、秘密主菩萨、执金刚菩萨,
金刚萨埵 梵名Vajra-sattva,是佛部,与普贤菩萨同体异名,亦称“金刚心菩萨”。

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

X: 法師,我有做披甲護身,我也冇諗其他……但就咁巧合��

我E家修法用法師教迥向衆生。

X: Fashi, I did Armour Protection, I do not have other thoughts .... but just coincidence (defeated expression).

Now I dedicate to all sentient beings as Fashi taught when cultivating.

[10. 披甲护身
我们结金刚合掌手印,观想我们从虚空拉下一道白光,白光充满了我们,也笼罩着我们,持咒。

(持完咒后)用手印印额头,喉、心、左肩、右肩,然后触天心散印。
[我们点燃了十字金刚杵 - 代表清净、光明、不坏、坚硬、坚定。]


回天心散印时,向虚空射出一道蓝光,再把蓝光拉下来安置在我们的前后左右。
观想蓝光开始顺着时钟方向旋转、旋转、旋转..意味着护法金刚昼夜的在守护着我们。]

7. The Armour Protection
Form the Vajra Mudra before the forehead. Visualise you draw a beam of brilliant white light from the Universe, it fills and engulf you.
The Vajra Mudra
Recite the mantra: OM, BO LEE LAN ZE LEE. (7x)

After recitation, bring the mudra to touch the brow point, then throat, heart, left shoulder, right shoulder, then back to the forehead.Visualise that you are now actually a lighted up Crossed-Dorje.

The Crossed Dorje (Vishva-Vajra)

At the moment of releasing the mudra, visualise you send a beam of brilliant blue light upwards and then draw it down, placing it in front, back, left and right around you. 
Then visualise these 4 beams of light start to turn in a clockwise direction forming a cylindrical column all around you. 
Visualise it spins continuously – this means that the Dharma Protectors are protecting you all the time.
As you dismiss the mudra, thank all the Dharma Protectors for protecting you all the time.

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

Dear all, if you do this right, you have no need to fear anything coming anywhere close to you!

WHY?

The circle of white light around you keeps spreading outwards with you as the centre.
Then the blue light forms another ring around the white light, "bouncing off" any "ill-intent" intruders too.

This protection can be till you next perform the practice again, if you make a request for protection to last till your next practice. :)

So, the problem lies with you who didn't do the Armour Protection properly as taught by your Root Guru with the proper basics of Mudra; Visualisation; Mantra!

Do not blame anyone or any place for your own discomforts!
