How To Cast White Vedic Spells

There is a saying that goes:


“Whoever chants spells shall have the right to use the powers of the gods to fulfill his/her desire.”


In order to tap the power of gods, as with all other magical traditions; there is a set of rules to follow:


·         You must choose an appropriate place: clean, quiet and safe to set up an altar where you can sit undisturbed throughout the spell casting ceremony. And that the place should be suitable for you to burn oil lamps and burn incense.

·         You need to choose good timing: for good spells the time is during White Month.

·         You should choose an appropriate ‘asana’ or sitting position; traditionally, the lotus posture is the best; but you may sit in any posture but remember to keep your back straight.

·         The general direction for spell casting:

o   For peaceful spells one should face either facing north or east.

o   For enchantment spells one should face south.

o   For killing/overpowering spells one should face west.

·         You will need a japa mala. However, you should not use the right index finger to turn the mala and that the mother bead should never be crossed after one round of recitation. It is best to cover the mala with a piece of cloth during mantra recitation. When not in used, the mala should be wrapped in a piece of clean cloth.

·         For a mantra to take effect, the required number of recitations would be 10 million times.

·         You should consume only vegetarian food. And also beware of not eating too much or too less during the spell casting time.

·         So far as permissible, you should keep silence and avoid talking to a second person unless necessary.

·         You are also required to keep celibacy throughout the ritual.

·         You should be sleeping on the floor.

·         You must have faith in the spell you are casting.

·         You must also keep your body and mind clean during and after the spell casting period.


The above pointers are just general rules for casting White Vedic spells. The rules vary from masters to masters and it is best just to follow what is taught by your own master to avoid confusions.


Blessings of the Trimurti

This ritual will help you to awaken your spiritual nature and the three-fold aspects of the divinity slumbering within. It confers upon the user the grace and blessings of the Trimurti Lords: Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva corresponding to the 3 Gems of Buddhism.


The mantras


Visualize a brilliant white light. Approximate meaning:

“Om, salutations to Ganapati, the remover of obstacles for which Gum (the sound) is the seed.”


Visualize a brilliant golden light. Approximate meaning:

“The entire cosmos, the manifest and un-manifest, often referred to as Brahman; consciousness and existence is the essence of All.”


Visualize a brilliant pink light. Approximate meaning:

“Om, Salutations to Vishnu.”


Visualize a brilliant blue light. Approximate meaning:

“Om, Salutations to Shiva.”


 The Practice


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 discover.


Know Your Future With Panchanguli Sadhana

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.


Tthe Panchanguli Sadhana.


1.      One needs an empowered Panchanguli Yantra and siddhi rosary.

2.      It can be tried on the second, fifth, seventh day of a White Month.

3.      It must be accomplished between 4 am and 6 am in a quiet place.

9.      Next he/she should chant the following Mantra meditating on the form of the Goddess:

Panchanguli Mahaadevi Shree Seemaandhar Shaasane. Adhishtthaatri Karasyaasou Shaktih Shree Tridasheshituh.

10.  He/she should take water in the right palm and pledge that you are chanting the Panchanguli Mantra for gain of divine vision. Next with rosary chant one round of the following Mantra:

Om Namo Panchaanguli Panchaanguli
Parashari Maataa Mayamangal Vashikaranni
Lohamaya Dand Mannini Chounsatth Kaam
Vihandani Raaulmadhye Shatrumadhye

Om Ttham Ttham Ttham Swaahaa.

11.  Do this regularly for 7 days consecutively.

Essence Of The Great Perfection (大圆满精要)

The topic 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 together.


Garab Dorje (胜喜金刚) in “Three Points That Strike The Essence” (捶击三要) pointed out that one should:


“Understands one’s state of mind,

Have confident in it,

Meditate with confident.”


So, what is the ‘state of mind’ refers to?


In Great Perfection view:


·         There is no difference between enlightenment and cycle of rebirth.

·         There is no difference amongst the Trikaya: Dharmakaya, Sambhogakaya and Nirmanakaya.

·         When our mind is at peace, it is said to be in Dharmakaya form.

·         When our mind is in enjoyment, it is said to be in Sambhogakaya form.

·         When our mind is changing, it is said to be in Nirmanakaya form.


So after one has understood one’s mind, the below conclusion can be made:


·         Nirvana (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 is.

·         Pure 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.


The above theories were made based on no one has returned from enlightenment and preach about it (logically speaking); including the enlightened one!


H.H. Dudjom 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.

Sending Off A Kid (送童子)

Many times 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…”


There are many reasons why a person remains single and unattached to date.


Tell tale signs can be found from astrology or Feng Shui audit:


In 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.


In Feng 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 this house.


However, there is a third aspect according Taoist’s view:


“A person 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.


This ritual 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.

Simple Taoist Exorcism Ritual (百解消灾)

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.


Have you 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.


There are 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.


The items you will need:


·         A piece of hundred solutions, the biggest piece (百解符)

·         A paper manikin, male/female (替身)

·         Some gold foils (金纸)

·         Some silver foils (银纸)


This ritual can be done at any time.


First, take 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.


In Asia, 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!

What You Worship Affects Your Business

Many Asian 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?


For 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 could imagine.


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!


For these 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!


I would 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 as remunerations.


Contrary to 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.


It seems that Tantric rituals are not all powerful, and that the Taoist rituals can be pretty useful and helpful at times too!

Methods Of Transference (寄法)

Methods of 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 (湿疹,痒疹):


·         The 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.


Sty/eye needle (麦粒肿,眼针):


·         The 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.


Erysipelas (丹毒/卷身龙):


·         The 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 ‘’ 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.”


Toothaches (牙痛):


·         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.
