This is the sacred Yantra representing the five Buddhas at the five corners of the universe. Vairocana Buddha or supreme ruler is in the center, Aksobhya Buddha is in the East- Ratna Sambhava Buddha is in the South, Amitabha Buddha is in the West, and Amogha Siddhi Buddha is in the North. Five armies of heaven, composed of Deities, saints and Gods, surround the five Buddhas. The Yantra represents the five branches of all religions in the universe: The Buddha's Way, the Immortal's Way, the Saint's Way, the Deity's Way and the Human's Way. In the past, Buddhist masters have passed this scroll from hand to hand among themselves over thousands of years. The Secret sect from the South has used it to transfer the Mind Seal. In the formal tradition of Cambodian Buddhism, it is only verbally transmitted to the monks of the highest rank. The Cambodian Secret Buddhism called this scroll Pracul Consatte (Buddha's magic), Praculkia Tha (Kung Fu Buddha), and Sadatte Kia Tha (King of Magic and Kung Fu). At the present time, by Heaven's orders, the Buddhist masters are giving out this scroll to prove the existence of God and thus help people balance their material and spiritual life. This helps to provide the right key for anyone who really wants to understand the Secret subjects relating to the physical existence of humanity, i.e. the laws of heaven, the operation of God's will or the wordless Sutra.

 

To experience the basic spiritual supernatural power,
simply follow these steps:

 

1. Stand before the image of Buddha, God the Father, the
Bible, the Buddhist Sutra or the spiritual leader of one's faith.
Pray to learn the ways of the saints and the sages and promise to
observe the religious precepts: not to kill (except in self defense),
not to steal, not to have sexual misconduct, not to lie in order to
harm others and not to drink excessively.

 

2. Trace, then burn the Yantra and drink the ashes mixed in
water.

 

3. Join your hands at the forehead level without touching it,
and continuously recite the name of God, Buddha or any other
spiritual leader's name. In five to thirty minutes, you will feel an
external force that either moves your arms, or forms Mudra with
your fingers. Your hands may be moved apart, up or down. Your
body may be bent into postures of paying respect to Buddha,
Jesus or other spiritual leaders. Keep praying silently and
continue to further experience the force. You are fully conscious
during the process.

 

4. If you want to stop simply relax your hands.

 

5. If you want to experience more of the force, join your
hands and pray as mentioned before. You will be taught the
eighteen forms of Kung fu, aesthetic exercises, oriental or
western dances, Yoga exercises, Qi Gong energy, meditation, etc.
depending on your abilities and interest.

 

6. From 1974 to present, more than five thousand adults have
practiced this Secret Buddhism in Vietnam.

 

7. In the past two years, more than one hundred children
under the age of ten, men and women over sixty years of age
have practiced Secret Buddhism in the United States. Some have
had “out of body experiences”. Others have had an opening of the
'third eye', or the experience of 'speaking in tongues'.

 

8. All theories of the doctrine are generally mentioned in this
book. If necessary, the practitioner may contact the author for
further information.

 

9. Following the first experience with the force, Catholics,
Christians and Jewish are encouraged to live by the Ten
Commandments of God, or Jehovah, and by the teachings of their
Bible. Buddhists of the Pure Land School are encouraged to pray
to Amitabha Buddha, chant prayers of repentance and observe the
religious rules, as they are normally accustomed to. Practitioners
of other sects are encouraged to live by the precepts of their
religion. Everyone will gradually experience many supernatural
principles, depending on the individual’s extent of religious
commitment and devotion.

 

10. This Yantra is sacred. One must show sincere respect and
should not joke about it. It will not be good for the blasphemer.

 

 

 

~~Testimonials~~

 

 

 

Last week a friend complained of leg weakness and asked me to show her some leg exercises, and afterward during my nightly chanting, praying to my Spirit guardian I had a vision of a thin scroll parchment flying toward my hands.

On it was some foreign letters, but I somehow understood that it was: Taoist Qigong. The holy force let me receive it and prompted me to bow down.

On the scroll were sketches of someone looking like Bodhidarma and performing various martial arts moves. I barely had time to glance at it before the scroll folded on itself and vanished. The Spirit told me I could help my friend's leg condition with a Qigong exercise from Wing Chun school.

When I reported to Thay - my religious Mentor, she told me to practice the moves in the scroll. So everyday during my routine prayer and my wish to practice the Qigong exercises, those pictures appeared again but the forms instead of being still and separated from each other were in motions as a motion picture, and too fast for me to catch up. Then I went to the altar and as soon as I had asked the Spirits to show me each movement slower and clearer, an instructor in neatly black kungfu uniform instantly appeared in front of me.

He greeted me with a kungfu salute which I returned. Then he performed a Qigong move and stood still afterward. The holy force prompted me to sit down and I repeated the move accordingly.

And each time I mastered a movement he joined his hands in a kungfu salute and I did the same to him before we moved on to the next exercise. The moves looked quite simple but extremely flexible, gentle but solid, at times serene like those of the heavenly flamingo or phoenix, or powerful as those of the dragon and tiger.

While the instructor was performing some boxing techniques, I heard the Spirits from my left shoulder saying: "The fast moving pictures we gave you before was a test to see if you could persist and commit yourself to learning. If you really devote yourself to learning we will teach you."

I bowed down and promised that I would take my practice seriously

 

 

 

Since I was initiated into Secret Buddhism, I have completed 10,000 times of the Five Essential Dharanis. I am a disciple of the Seven Mountains Magical Kungfu. I received the Initiation Rite from Tinhtam.

Since I started to recite the Five Essential Dharanis, I have noticed clear changes in the Seven Mountains Magical Kungfu sect. In the past I had practiced stabbing my body with the sword, even though there were no cuts in the flesh but there was still cut marks left. However, since I learned the Dharanis from vutruhuyenbi.com, I would recite the Dharanis before practicing my sword skills and the results were incredible. There were no stab wounds, not even a mark.

While meditating I feel the electrical energy triggering my hands and also my senses, I see myself wandering in the Buddha land where there are strong growing trees with transparent fruits that look like that of jade. My mind expands and I feel peace.

Interesting. However, if you're making solemn vows then they need to be kept for the rest of your life. This sounds like a monastic practice and not something from the layman.

Interesting indeed. In my limited understanding I don't think this is really Buddhist, but uses Buddhism and other religions as an expedient means to open people up to the grace it can offer.

The practice have Buddhist origin. I just post it for curiosity as is very similar to the Xiao Yao Pai.

 

There are many practices which comes from buddhist spiritual deites like dakinis, bodhisattvas etc.

 

The language they use is pretty funny in sense of that, they trying to fit into modern understanding and unification of religion mixing some concepts for regular person. This is not monastic practices as this is lay principles of buddhist practitioners, the five basics.

 

 

I'm researching on this practice so sharing with others as legit one.

What's happening in the video is totally just plain old 'spontaneous qigong'. The student is told the suggestion that they'll move in various ways if they do something (can be anything to trigger it). They do it, they will get a little natural movement at some point, which they allow to morph into a big show...because they want the magical thing to happen for them...all the while it can seem like it's not the student causing the movement but a higher intelligence. After practicing for a long time, they'll be readily able to perform.

It really is suggestion and their own choice to move, though. Whether benefits come or not, or even if bad results come, is really anyone's guess.

On what basis do you judge it? Why so quick to judge? It's not spontaneous qigong. It can look like that but you have no idea what beside your own judgement without proper experience of the practice. It's make no sense to talk like this "like" you know when clearly not. this got nothing to do with spontenous qigong - practice and then we can talk.

Another specialist. You know of course in memory all three caskets, all tantras, kriyas and everything to judge that this is not buddhist? On what basis do you think it's not buddhist? It's follow doctrine of buddhist so it is buddhist. Whatever the practice is related to the basic doctrine which is for all schools pure land, nichiren, shingon shu (which this school is related, mikkyo) etc. it is buddhist. Buddhist have even own qigong.

Thanks for posting this, it is intriguing; especially the ingesting of burnt yantras and the access to a teaching stream. What may be difficult for those on the outside is the presentation and the nature of the teaching stream itself. Without personal contact with teachers or practitioners or a well developed inner discernment it is difficult or even foolhardy to just jump in indiscriminately.

I have read most of the Secret Buddhism pdf, while it is jam packed with Buddhist philosophies, principles and doctrines, the practices are not entirely how a Buddhist would go about things.

 

No Buddhist would ever suggest that you replace Buddha in a chant or prayer with the god, saint, angel or deity of your choice, especially in an initiation or empowerment. A true Buddhist only takes refuge in Buddha, without exception.

 

It is an interesting read though.

Not well known, but in the Old Testament there is a practice (not done now) where you burn a small piece of sacred writing (generally not allowed), mix the ashes with water and drink.  If nothing happens then you're cleared of a particular sin, mostly adultery.

Its a common practice among certain admixture of tao/buddhist/confucian/shaman sects all over South East Asia, and China as well. A certain yellow paper is used by an oracle or a tao master (called Dao Zi in Cantonese) under influence from one of a whole host of celestial beings, and on it written magical spells with a Chinese calligraphy brush and red ink. After working on it (usually chanting something which cannot be understood by onlookers) the Fu (that yellow piece of paper) is burnt and ashes mixed into a glass of water subsequently consumed by whomsoever is seeking celestial intervention in worldly troubles.

My ancestors, grandfather and father were all devout Buddhists. I grew up and lived for 30 years in South East Asia. Not much in relation to pseudo-Buddhism/Shamanism/Folk religions in that part of the world that i am not familiar with. Certainly not an authority, but pretty confident I know more about it than you.

I am almost positive I saw a video where Flowing Hands did this exact thing.

I wonder what the heck was going on.

Some interesting testimonials.

 

 

Khoan is a Buddhist follower; he took refuge in the Triple Gem about 10 years ago. He told me he has been diligent in visiting pagodas, meeting with many senior monks, and reading lots of Buddhist books. In 2010, he was diagnosed with throat cancer stage 2. Hence, he spent more time chanting Buddha’s name. But in the beginning of 2011, after a few radiation therapies and losing his hairs, he was discharged from the hospital. When Thao, his wife, heard from her friends that I was transmitting the Secret Seal, she and her husband invited me to their home.

 

When I came, he looked very pale and thin, with a bald head. His wife talked about their five-year-old son who was hyperactive, in other words he got autism. He would smash things when the guests came thus they had sent him to the neighbor for fear that he would disturb the conversation.

After listening to his taking refuge in the Triple Gem to become a Buddhist, I explained to them about the Secret Seal and subsequently gave them the Initiation Ceremony.

 

The ceremony barely ended when the entrance door flew open and their chubby son stormed in. It turned out that he had broken the door of neighbor’s who was unable to detain him and ran home. His parents quickly tried to catch him but he successfully escaped and ran to me when he suddenly stopped. He sat down in front of me in a docile manner, in a half lotus position with his back straight. I understood that the Invisible Guardians were directing this phenomenon so I asked: "Do you want to recite Buddha’s name with me?"

He nodded and politely said: "Yes, I do."

 

The boy was sitting opposite me with his back toward the altar, when unexpectedly he told me, looking serious: “Then, uncle, let me turn my body toward this direction before we proceed.”

His parents were taken aback with this statement and with their autistic son turning around to face the altar. I immediately held his hands and joined them in front of his forehead, then praying out loud: “Namo Amitabha Buddha” so he could join me. Then I let go of his hands and the kid just continued praying in that position, behaving himself very well. The Spirits immediately bestowed the Buddha force on him, moving his hands to form mudras and performing very neat martial arts gestures.

 

His parents were so happy when they knew that his son has been given the Secret Seal which might miraculously cure his autism. Thao went inside to prepare lemon tea for me. She came out with a large serving tray that held a thermos, a small sugar container and 3 cups. As she just walked out the boy sprang up and dashing toward her, he snatched the whole tray and everything on it from his mom. His parents cried out in panic, fearing that he would smash it, as she had quickly let go of the tray. Surprisingly he caught it smoothly, keeping everything on it balanced; and dashing inside, he shouted out: "Let me prepare his drink myself.”

 

I signalled his parents to let him be. After a while he brought out the tray with only 2 cups of already made lemon tea. He gently placed one cup in front of me, and thumped the other cup down in front of his parents, he said: “you two share this.” Then he took off to go play at the neighbor’s house.

As the parents and I drank the lemon tea, we were pleasantly surprised that it tasted good and was well-mixed, a task which not too many five years old could do. Moreover that little guy even put away the thermos and the sugar container after using them. His parents were all moved to tears. I reminded them to practice the Dharanis diligently and took my leave.

 

Early this year (2014), I received news from them that Khoan has recovered from cancer, their son then six years old, was also cured from autism. He attended grade 1, and was very active and clever.

This is an extremely lucky and happy family, thanks to protective power of the Secret Seal

About what is buddhist what is not. There is no sense to argue about it because for most people is subjective. From academic point of view 80% buddhist is not really buddhist etc. especially when it comes to esoteric buddhism we have a lot stories similar or same as in taoism of immortals so let it go. If someone want to play fundamentalist - okay but we are focusing here on this practice so please keep mind on the topic. :)

Testimonials.

Dear Master, today (16/12/2016) my Spirits Guardian had telepathically said to me that I had passed my lesson of self-conceit.
This afternoon about six o’clock, my parents and I were having dinner, (we always have dinner sitting on the floor), while watching “The magic sword”, a Chinese martial arts TV. The movie was so so. As the movie progressed, the story's events turned out to be exactly what I had said to my mom the day we watched the first episode so I blurted out: Mom, see? What a genius judgment I had! I was right. But it instantly dawned on me that it was wrong so I quickly apologized to my Guardian Spirit. I received a telepathic message: That’s alright my son. I forgive you this time. Don’t repeat your mistake though. Now, go on with your meal.
While chewing my rice, I promised to the Spirit that I will not make such statement again, and the message said that I was forgiven.
Then, as I continued to think about it: Perhaps I'm not as smart as I thought. My correct prediction must have come from my guardian and not from me.
The Spirit laughed : “Haha. Good boy. Now you are getting smart. You have learned your lesson. Do you know what is your biggest drawback?
- I do not know Sir.
- Conceit is your biggest weak point. I am afraid that when you have some achievements, your self-conceit would rise. If that happens, all the years you spent cultivating the Way would be wasted. You must write this lesson in your heart, engrave this lesson in your bones to help you curb your big ego.
I mentally replied: divine Spirit, without your help I have nothing, my understanding and knowledge all come from divine Providence.
- You are right my son. Understanding that and you will be able to remove vanity and conceit. Ha ha... Good boy! Good boy!
I could feel that my Guardian was happy and pleased as he was laughing and stroking his beard. When I wrote these lines I received the holy force's guidance, I was filled with divine energy and feeling warm all over, feeling like my Guardian was right next to me.

Quite right that this secret teaching is closely resembling 'shen da' where the practitioner is guided by an external force after initiation ( xiao yao pai's tau yin shu?). If we are going to be dogmatic and confines to the printed word, various contributors here saying that this secret teaching practice is unbuddhistic is certainly correct. But we cannot ignore the fact that there are Buddhist practices that are supernatural. The Buddha himself had performed miracles in his early stage of propagating his Dhamma until the last one when he manifested himself in multiple forms during a challenge with the (king's appointed) priest in a king's court. After winning that challenge he forbade his followers from performing miracles to convert lay people. There is also a chant handed down by the Buddha to ward off evil spells. That chant is not translated, and has to be said in the Pali language. In the Theravaden daily chanting, there is a verse that shares the merit of the daily observance with devas (gods), bhutta (the elements, ancestors) and satta (sentient beings). Quite often to evoke blessings on the sick for quicker recovery, special chanting of special suttas are said. Years ago, my wife was suffering from acute insomnia for more than a week and had to be hospitalised. I arranged for a special chanting in a temple for her that evening at about 8PM and checked on her the next day. I was told that she slept without medication at about 9:30PM the previous night. Yet, all these do not deviate the Buddhist from the path laid down by the Buddha. May you be well and happy always! Sabbe satta sukhita hontu!

You're very welcome, Karen  :)

 

Yes, there was/is. I recall seeing it too. Youtube has a few too, im sure. Been to a few myself. People can be quite gullible. 

 

Its a shame CT that you spent some time in South East Asia and yet to the experienced practitioner you are as niave as if you had never been there. You talk about being gullible, you should look at your self being being too critical of that which you have not experienced or fully understood. Self improvement is a wonderful thing in words but in reality it never happens its too challenging for even the strongest of people. Become a Buddha? Yes in a million years perhaps, so don't slight the Immortals who come to teach devoted ordinary people who use their time and energy to help others.

 

A 'fa fu' is a written command to the primary forces of nature which all living things are made of. It can be a formal character with drawings, (like in the Daoist Cannon) or it can be a free hand 'picture' with a spell uttered as it is drawn. Either way the Immortal that draws it, is giving a command to act on those forces and alter them. Fa Shui can be drawn in a similar fashion and the yin and yang amulets taken with the Holy water. 

 

Sure there are charlatans in all sects of spirituality, major religions are just businesses and it was once said, 'if you want to get rich start a religion', but one has to be a practitioner of esoteric practices to understand what these things are. In Buddhism, we hear of many so called masters using their position to abuse others. Of course there are no true teachings of Buddhism, it is all anecdotal, Buddha never wrote down his teachings in his own hand.

 

So Ct I suffered some abuse from you when I first came on this site and you are still pouring out the same BS you did some years ago, Its about time you started to grow as a person and stop calling other peoples arts that you admit you don't know fully, BS all the time, because they aren't.
