Chanting and Meditation

tips-for-mantra-chanting

What is Chanting?

Chanting is a sound repeated with intention to transmit a certain frequency. By repeating these seed syllables we begin to vibrate from the inside out, becoming quite literally our own tuning fork. This frequency bypasses our human limitations and allows us to see through the illusions of the world with greater clarity.

The Language of Chanting

Each tradition contains its own sacred sounds which act as seeds or keys to unlock the mind. Sanskrit, for example, was not a language meant for communication; rather, it was a transmitter of energy. Guru Prem Singh Khalsa offers that “a mantra is a projection of the mind (Man=mind, Tra=wave/projection) to divinity.”Chanting these ancient sounds that created our universe can then reconnect us with her primordial grace.

Benefits of Chanting

When we chant, we engage in a psycho-spiritual and physical exercise, altering our cells.

Physical changes

Reduces stress, improves cognition, lowers heart rate, helps tune inward to become aware of distress in the physical body before it becomes illness.

Emotional changes

Alleviates depression, reduces stress.

Spiritual Changes

Moves us into unity consciousness, shifts us into co-creator mindset with the universe, reprograms the subconscious mind.

While the health benefits are immense and are now being widely researched, the spiritual gifts are where I get giddy. By chanting these nonsense sounds with no attachment to meaning, we are subtly replacing the subconscious fears and self-judgment with tones of love, peace and the sublime.

What is meditation?

Meditation is relaxation. It is not about concentration, it’s actually about de-concentration. It’s not about focussing one’s thoughts on one thing, but instead on becoming thoughtless.

Benefits of meditation

  • A calm mind
  • Good concentration
  • Better clarity
  • Improved communication
  • Relaxation and rejuvenation of the mind and bodyWith meditation, the physiology undergoes a change and every cell in the body is filled with more prana (energy). This result in joy, peace, enthusiasm as the level of prana in the body increases.
  • On a physical level, meditation:

Health benefits of meditation

  • Lowers high blood pressure
  • Lowers the levels of blood lactate, reducing anxiety attacks
  • Decreases any tension-related pain, such as, tension headaches, ulcers, insomnia, muscle and joint problems
  • Increases serotonin production that improves mood and behavior
  • Improves the immune system
  • Increases the energy level, as you gain an inner source of energyMeditation brings the brainwave pattern into an alpha state that promotes healing. The mind becomes fresh, delicate and beautiful. It cleanses and nourishes you from within and calms you, whenever you feel overwhelmed, unstable, or emotionally shut down. With regular practice of meditation:

Mental Benefits of Meditation

  • Anxiety decreases
  • Emotional stability improves
  • Creativity increases
  • Happiness increases
  • Intuition develops
  • Gain clarity and peace of mind
  • Problems become smaller
  • Meditation sharpens the mind by gaining focus and expands through relaxation
  • A sharp mind without expansion causes tension, anger and frustration
  • An expanded consciousness without sharpness can lead to lack of action/progress
  • The balance of a sharp mind and an expanded consciousness brings perfection

Spiritual benefits of meditation

  • Meditation doesn’t have a religion and can be practiced by anybody regardless of the faith they follow.
  • Meditation makes you aware – that your inner attitude determines your happiness.
  • Effortless transition from being something to merging with the infinite and recognizing yourself as an inseparable part of the whole cosmos
  • In a meditative state, you are in a space of vastness, calmness and joy and this is what you emit into the environment, bringing harmony to the Creation/planet.
  • Meditation can bring about a true personal transformation. As you learn more about yourself, you’ll naturally start discovering more about yourself and love yourself.

To experience the benefits of meditation, regular practice is necessary. It takes only a few minutes every day. Once imbibed into the daily routine, meditation becomes the best part of your day! Busy people from all backgrounds are grateful to pause and enjoy a refreshing few minutes of meditation each day. Dive deep into yourself and enrich your life.

However all the above remains a text or information if you don’t practice it. So do join me this coming Friday (22/02/2019) at 8pm at my place to have a feel of what meditation and chanting is all about.

 

神帥居供龙王法会

Naga Offering Puja (供龙王法会) will be held on 10th March 2019 at the western sea of Singapore. (Location to be confirm)

It is believed that by doing this offering one’s present wealth, fame, relationship, health, confidence, merits will improve, obstacles and sickness will be eliminated.

We should also dedicate the merit both toward the fulfilment of our aspiration, and also for the benefit of all sentient beings. For example, if one wishes to be free from a particular suffering such as a skin disease, the Naga Vase offerings should be dedicated to the peace and well being of the injured Naga, and the aspiration can be made that by this offering may all beings afflicted by the wrath of the Naga be forgiven for their mistakes and may they meet with the cessation of their ailments etc. Similarly one should also hope that all beings awaken to the heart of enlightenment by this generosity and may this Naga offering assures prosperity for all beings.

Limited number of Naga Vase (龙王宝瓶) is available for sponsorship.

Li Chun, 立春

2019 will be the year of the boar which starts on Lup Chun (Li Chun, 立春). Lup Chun is the first day of the spring. 2019 lup chun is on 4th Feb 2019, and 9 flying stars will relocate their locations from this day (Lup Chun). 

In order to bring wealth, prosperity and good health into your house(office) , you can start to re-arrange your feng shui products to remedial the inauspicious energy. Do remember to avoid doing any spring cleaning that day and try if possible open up all windows and doors early in the morning(leave it open at least 1 hour) and do your offerings (上供天, 下施地, 愿护人) remember to do offerings to your environmental spirits and nagas around you. And welcome the energy of Spring into your house.

Main thing BE HAPPY this is more important than following those auspicious timing to deposit money into the bank.

PS: banking in cheque from customers or collecting winnings or customer paying you is a different story 😉

I sincerely thanks all your support for me at 神帥居。Please take note that as of today 神帥居 will be operating from 28 Senang Crescent instead of Roxy Square. The opening and closing hours remain the same.

神帥居 will be open for light offerings tonight from 4th feb 11pm-2am. Do come over if you are free.

天赦日

什么是天赦日呢?一年之中,有四天是无所禁忌的吉日。

历忌学中的四大吉日天赦日并不是做什么事情都吉祥,它适于从事祭祀、祈福、求嗣、婚姻、缓刑等活动,这样吉日与吉事才可以很好结结合起来,产生大吉大利的好结果;如果在天赦日中出兵作战或出去狩猎之类的不好的活动,就会违反天意,吉日将变为凶日。

很多人会利用天赦日这天专门在门口登天焚香祈求?更有人会去庙里去祈求添福延寿、补运、补财库、去忏悔赦罪、尤其久病不好赦因果病、回向婴灵、迥向因果、要求身体、还是犯官司要化解、要大事化小事的都非常灵 感。在天赦日用天赦金祈求、灵感无比、可说有求必应。

请求上天赦赦免我们不小心犯了一些凶神恶煞,而上天给你一个机会祈求赦免。很多时如果在这天参拜后有一点小病,小意外,反而是一种应数,不用担心。一年会有几个天赦日,在传统的通书有说:天赦日宜祭祀、祈福、求嗣、斋醮、结婚、嫁娶、修墓、造葬,吉。,为何这天称呼为天赦,是因为:天生育万物也,而宥其罪宜疏狱洗冤、施恩、恕罪、祈神

往昔所造諸惡業   皆由無始貪瞋痴   從身語意之所生   一切我今皆懺悔

罪從心起將心懺   心若滅時罪亦亡   心亡罪滅兩俱空   是則名為真懺悔
