The Sutra Of 33 Heaven (三十三天经)
Source from Wiki:
“The Trāyastriṃśa heaven
is an important world of the devas in Buddhist cosmology. The word trāyastriṃśa
is an adjective formed from the numeral trayastriṃśat, "33" and can
be translated in English as "belonging to the thirty-three [devas]".
It is primarily the name of the second heaven in Buddhist cosmology, and
secondarily used of the devas who dwell there.
heaven is the second of the heavens of the Kāmadhātu (欲界), and the highest of the
heavens that maintains a physical connection with the rest of the world.
Trāyastriṃśa is located on the peak of Sumeru (須彌山). This heaven is somehow comparable
to the Greek Olympus in some respects.
"thirty-three" in the name of the heaven is not an enumeration of the
gods who live there (there are far more) but a general term inherited from
Vedic mythology, implying "the whole pantheon of gods". Hindu
mythology provides a full list (with some variations) of thirty-three named
deities, but it is inconsistent with the Buddhist conception and mythology of
Not many people are aware that Mountain Lu Taoism (闾山教) has a practice aimed at
gaining supernatural power. This practice is known as “The Sutra Of 33 Heaven”.
One must first memorize the below sutra by heart:
(Prostration to the 33
heavenly sutras coupled with meditation in the mountain, my dharma reaches to
heaven. The armies of gods travels through earth, I am following the order of
Buddha. I am training generals and soldiers of gods, the stars, 36 fierce
armies heed my orders! I have a golden pagoda on my head, five elementals trained
my body. I am practising 5 types of sutras at noon and midnight, the fire god
is accompanying me. His fire entered my mouth and transformed me to an
immortal. My breath turns into sword and movement causes the stones to be blown
away. Heavenly generals are on my left, heavenly soldiers are on my right, I am
reciting the heavenly sutras and dharma from all 5 palaces comes to me. Now the
5 thunders strike, the heavenly soldiers descended. I am transforming into
millions of heavenly soldiers. My soul is hidden inside 10,000miles of mountain
ranges; no one can see or find me because I am using the formula of black
heaven! I am following the dharma of Mountain Lu and Amitabah Buddhaya, the octagon
protects me according to the order of Master Taoist! )
above sutra must be recited for 49 times between 9pm to 2am.
exercise must be performed for 49 consecutive nights.
the sutra recitation, one must meditate for at least 1 hour.
must keep all the information or messages from the spiritual world to him/her
as too many disclosures to a second party may cause his/her power to fade.
Last but not least, the practice to gain psychic power must
be treated with sincerity and caution. As a novice, we will not be able to
differentiate what types of spirits are present and many practitioners have
faced with serious problems during this type of training.
