The Seven Branches in Tibetan
It is a prayer that is performed daily and that summarizes the seven fundamental practices or principles of Buddhism:
GO SOUM GOU PAI GO NAI CHAG TSEL LO ONG SHAN YI TRUL CHO TRIN MA LU BUL A MAI NAI SAG DIG TOUN TAM CHE SHAG KYE PAG GUÉ WA NAM LA JÉ YI RANG KOR WA MA DONG BAR DOU LEG SHUNG NAI DRO LA CHO GYI KOR LO KOR WA DANG DAG THIS IS THE TIME TO CHEN POR ONG
Prayer to Buddha to find employment
There is a well-known little prayer addressed to the Buddha by people looking for a new job or because they want a better job:
“Powerful Lord of the distance of the 7 mental powers grant me the divine grace to find an honest and decent job that allows me to live in harmony and be very happy with my family.”
In the prayer, the Lord of the seven powers is mentioned. Remember that in Eastern traditions and doctrines such as Hinduism or Buddhism, what we know as mental powers have been studied for millennia.
These are generally mental achievements that are achieved or perfected with certain practices and a lot of discipline, so they have little to do with magic. Buddha is considered the lord of these mental abilities.
However, when it comes to employment, as in any other case or need in your life, you can resort not only to this prayer, but you can also resort to the use of mantras.
A mantra is a Sanskrit word whose sound, when pronounced, has powers or effects on the mind and spirit.
This word is sung or recited, with the main objective of focusing our thoughts and emotions to establish control over them and of course harmonize them, thus modifying our consciousness.
The use of mantras is ancient and there are many who use them to cleanse negative energies, find employment, among other things.
Here is a widely used mantra for job seekers that may be the option you are looking for to empower your prayer:
Prayer to the Buddha to win the lottery
Mysterious Buddha Spirit! come to my humble abode and enlighten me, so that through the chances of the Lottery fortune may come to me, so that it may contribute to family happiness and well-being.
Prayer to the three Buddhas
The three Buddhas come from an ancient legend that was originally based on three monkeys and was later adapted to the figure of three sages or monks.
Both are very similar and come from areas surrounding Tibet, keeping even with certain differences the same message and philosophy.
The story says that the gods sent three wise men with the mission of revealing and punishing the wrong and evil actions of humans.
They say that each monk had a defect and two virtues:
KIKAZARU , was the deaf monk who saw bad actions and communicated them to Mizaru, with words.
MIZARU , was the blind wise man, his mission was to communicate with words what Kikazaru told the last wise man, who was Iwazaru.
IWAZARU , the third and last monk, was mute. He listened to what Mizaru told him and decided what punishment the human being should receive, observing that it was fulfilled.
The text keeps a valuable message, speak first, criticize less, cover your mouth before saying something that can hurt, always be careful what you say.
Don’t always listen to negative things, love the beautiful, the productive, what makes you a better person. Nothing lets live surrounded by gossip, intrigue, slander, disasters and death, invest time in nurturing your spirit, and your mind.
And perhaps a very important lesson, to close our eyes and see our interior very often, because it is what we must cultivate.
Do not dedicate your life to seeing things that do not contribute anything or only the negative part of situations, let’s learn to close our eyes to that.
Well then understand well: do not criticize, do not see only negative things and do not dedicate yourself to destroying with your words, if you have nothing good to say, do not say it.
Here is a short prayer of the three Buddhas:
O kind and benevolent trio of protective Buddhas, I come to you today to make a very special request of you.
I ask you, venerable gentlemen:
To the wise blind buddha, let no one with the intention of harming me see or find me, let nothing investigate, investigate or find that I do not want to give him.
To the deaf Buddha, may I not listen to hurtful words that want to harm or harm me and may those who care about me never lend their ears to slander, gossip or rumours.
To the mute buddha, help me to be silent when my words want to destroy, harm or harm or when what I have to say is harmful to me too.
The term “Buddha” designates a person who is awake , someone who has woken up from lethargy, who has left behind ignorance and unawareness, who sees things as they really are.
A Buddha is considered to be a person who after much discipline manages to get rid of all the failures, blockages and obstructions that our mind has.
Many people long ago have become Buddhas and perhaps many others in the future will also transform after reaching enlightenment.
Buddha does not ignore anything, he knows everything, because he has awakened, he does not walk the path of ignorance and he knows everything about the things that have happened, that are happening and will happen, all at the same time.
Furthermore, Buddha is a person of great compassion who is completely impartial and respects, cherishes and values all living beings without discrimination.
the first buddha
The first and perhaps best known Buddha was Siddharta Gautama, presumed to have been born between 563 and 483 BC, into an aristocratic family in the city of Kapilavastu.
Gautama was one of the important classes of Sakya, in the southern Himalayas, in Hindu lands, son of Śuddhodana and Maya who died when he was a child.
It is said that he was a young man surrounded by luxuries typical of his class, refined, highly educated and attractive.
It is said that his father, in the hope that his son would become a great King, kept him far away from any religious teaching, thus trying to prevent the famous prediction of the learned priests from coming true, who affirmed that he would become a great King or in a saint.
He was surrounded by luxuries, he was prevented from knowing suffering and any religious teaching, however, Gautama considered that wealth and luxuries was not the goal of his life.
It is said that the well-known four encounters were decisive in his transformation , which was when he saw an old man, a sick man, a dead man and an ascetic very closely.
It was when he decided to give up everything and go to meet a new life, an awakening where detachment, cessation, calm and knowledge were his goal.
At the age of twenty-nine, Prince Siddhartha leaves his family for Magadha, a city rich in culture and philosophy.
He changed his appearance, cut his hair and left behind his fine clothes and jewelry, dedicating himself to practicing meditation, yoga and asceticism, however, despite all the knowledge he could not find the secret to calm the sufferings of the world and that kept him unsatisfied.
He traveled to Bodh Gaya, in India, where he devoted himself to meditation and concentration for six years.
One full moon day of the fourth month of the lunar calendar, he decided not to give up meditation until he reached perfect illumination at the foot of a tree.
He achieved the much sought after enlightenment, which he considered to be a state of lasting and limitless happiness that is the full development of the potential of body, speech and mind.
The Buddha taught for forty-five years in India, in a particularly rich and evolved cultural context.
During his constant travels, he met different types of people and gave general and specific advice for each life situation.
His teachings try to make human beings brave, cheerful and kind individuals, and represent the main religious belief in several East Asian countries.
Since the early 1970s, the profound Buddhist insight, with its wide variety of methods, has inspired and attracted a growing number of free and independent-minded people from different Western cultures.
