October 2013


Horace, a Caucasian student of mine, has been a horse trainer for over 30 years.  He had two accidents that forced him to euthanize two valuable race horses in less than 2 years. He was very sad and worried about the afterlife well-being of these horses. He had summoned the service of Tibetan monks to chant and make offerings for the horses, so that they can move on to higher realm in their next lives without being an animal again.

One day, Horace pondered if he can apply a transcendental object like a talisman to prevent misfortune from happening to his horses again.  He has emailed me for help.

From my Daoist talisman collections, I found 2 talismans for protection of farm animals and one specifically for horses.  However, it took me a long time to dig up the picture of the Daoist Horse Deity because the importance of horse had diminished when it was replaced by automobile in the early 20th century.  Horace can setup a Horse Deity altar in his stable for additional protection.

But the Daoist talismans do not handle the afterlife well-being of the horses.  This normally involves chanting, karma purification, prayers, self-cultivation by the beneficiary (in this case, the horse) or benefactor (monks chanting).  Even humans can hardly do these tasks themselves, not to mention animals or your pets.

Is it possible to find an object or talisman that can protect, purify karma, prevent reincarnation to animal or ghost path (at least to human path) and hopefully offer passage to heaven– with minimal or no requirement of effort on the animal?  If such object exists, it should also work for people who are too lazy or unable to chant, pray or go to church/ temple, or someone who is an atheist.

After several weeks of research, I have found a branch in Esoteric Buddhism which offers easy afterlife liberation simply by touching, seeing, listening (to mantra chanting), carrying or passing-by a copy of special mantra  (藏传佛教佩戴见、闻、尝解脱).

I have specially designed a multiple functions talisman card that combines “liberation upon seeing” and “liberation upon passing-by” the talisman.  Below is the front and back of the card:

With this card,  Horace only needs to tape this card at the stable entrance, his horses (and any human) will be blessed with afterlife liberation when passing through the gate without making any effort.  Additional benefits will be gained if these beings also see the Manjushri Bodhisattva Auspicious Diagram.

You can give your pet the same benefits by flashing this talisman around it or simply tape the talisman inside your house and everyone will get the benefits without making much effort.

This Manjushri Bodhisattva Auspicious Diagram was drawn by a Tibetan rinpoche (living buddha) who encourages people to duplicate and distribute this diagram to benefit as many sentimental beings (humans, animals, fishes, bird, insects and etc.) as possible.   You will accumulate good karma credit by distributing it,  posting it in high traffic area or  “flashing” it to animals/ fishes in the markets before they are slaughtered or released .  Simply right-click your mouse to capture the picture into your computer and make your own hard copies.

FAQ
Q:  I can’t believe getting into heaven is so easy, is this a hoax?
A.  Your doubt is reasonable.  There is a 50/50 chance that nothing happens when we died– no heaven, hell or afterlife.  But you hardly do anything or pay anything to get this “afterlife insurance“, your choice is a no-brainer.  Besides, these benefits are well-documented in an ancient Buddhist classic and not a modern invention.

Q.  Is this talisman unfair for those who really work for liberation by praying, doing good work, going to church/temple and etc.? 
A:  Information is liberation.  I have done the hard work for you.  This talisman only guarantees the beneficiary no reincarnation to animal or hungry ghost path and hopefully passage to heaven.  But heaven has multiple levels.  It does not specify which level of heaven.  I guess this should be the lowest level since the beneficiary has not done much to deserve higher level.  However, being the doorman of heaven is 10k times better than being a human or a pig on earth (not to mention hell) — no tax, no Obamacare and all you can eat buffet.  Pal, get your feet into the heaven door first and worry about promotion later.

Q:  Have you seen evidence of this type of talismans working?
A. Yes, my old man was an atheist.  I had put a “touch upon liberation” talisman with his burial and he goes to heaven (don’t ask how I know).  Another case was a horse with a “touch” talisman when it was euthanized.  I don’t know if it goes to heaven except knowing it is happy wherever it is.

Chinese calligraphy– “Reality changes with thought”

Q:  Do you mean this talisman will work even if the beneficiary does not believe in religion?  Why?
A.  If it works for animals which are likely “non-religious”, so it will also work for atheists.  The “magic” is not on the receiver but the administer or the person who apply the talisman to the being.  A famous Buddhist saying, “Reality changes with thought (heart)” 境随心转.  People with affinity with me will grasp this meaning.

Q.  Can I do all the “bad” things and still get the benefits of this “afterlife insurance”?
A:   You don’t want to play trick with deity (in this case, Manjushri Bodhisattva, the wisdom deity).  You get double penalties when you knowingly doing “bad” things thinking the talisman will cover your behind.  Also capital offense like murder is not excusable with or without this talisman.

Q.  How do I “activate” or maximize the effect of this talisman?
A:  The Manjushri portion of the talisman gives you quite a few benefits.  One way to get the Universe to exchange energy with you is to make a donation to your favorite charity to get the flow of energy started.  Keep making donations when you get more benefits to keep the flow going  You may wear out your welcome mat sooner or later if you just keep getting from the universe and not giving something back.  The energy flow will stop.

Oh!  Monday again.  But I hope the following photo story will make your day.

The following story was reported on Oct. 25 (2013) in a Chinese blog.  A young couple travels to the Shinjang, the Northwest part of China.  They had stopped by a windmill generators areas to take some photos.

While taking a photo, a little white animal ran towards the couple.  They thought it was a cat because it is pretty small.


It is a white dog and looks skinny but friendly to the couple.  From the body shape,  “she” is a nursing mother dog!   The couple feel sorry for her weak physical state.
           After walking along a few minutes, mother dog ran away from the couple.
Mother dog ran a few meters and then turned around to see if the couple follow her. She then wagged her tail as if signaling the couple something.  She had repeated this ran and wagged actions a few times.
She ran toward the wood.  The couple suddenly realized that the dog may want to show them something inside the wood.
    The couple followed the white dog into the wood.
Mother dog showed them her litter of puppies hidden in the wood!
These puppies seemed to have not seen any human being before.  They were scared.
Mother dog comforted and reassured her puppies.
The couple thought that snow season will come soon and these puppies will perish if they do not act.  They also thought that the mother dog seek their help to care for the puppies.
The puppies ran around to escape being picked up by the couple and their friend.  Surprisingly, mother dog did not stop the couple from picking up her puppies.
It took them over an hour to catch all the puppies.  “I love a man holding a puppy“.  The wife wrote.
The wife use a jacket to improvise a bag to hold the puppies.
3 puppies in the bag.  More to come!
5 lovely puppies in the bag!
Mother dog had watched the couple picking up her puppies without making a noise.  It seemed she trusts the couple to handle her puppies.
Suddenly, mother dog laid down, as if she felt relieved that the puppies are taken care of.
Let’s pick up the mother too or we will need a cow. She looks at ease right now.
The good Samaritans took the dog family to their car.
Mother dog was very thirsty.  She drank half a bottle of water.
A nice folk gave the couple a box to carry the dog family.
4 + 1 puppies– how lovely!
“Sit tight!  Car is moving.  Have a happy ride.”
They went to a restaurant and fed mother dog a cake.  She is too weak and hungry to eat meat at least for a few days.
The puppies had drawn some admirers!
And more admirers.
Mother dog watched over and fed the puppies at the same time.
Take a walk and water break at a rest area.
Your puppies are still here.”
Smiling puppy?
More smiling puppies!

POSTSCRIPT:  The original title of this blog photo essay is “Happenstance:  Great touching maternal love of a mother dog” (奇遇记:狗妈伟大的母爱触动心灵).  It solicits help for the transportation and placement of these puppies.  Readers have offered suggestions and adoption proposals.  Most are happy to see mother dog and her puppies saved from winter snow and  their notorious dog-eating countrymen.
.
A homeless dog coming into one’s family is considered as “good for wealth” luck by the Chinese.  However, the opposite is for homeless cat.  But being a cat is safer than being a dog because cat is not eaten as often as dog by the Chinese.  You win some and lose some.
.
May all homeless pets are as fortunate as this dog family.
