【Living Buddha Lian-sheng Sheng-yen Lu Dharma Talk – Kurukulle Background and Key Cultivation Formula】
The origin of Kurukulle is Amitabha. She is a love goddess in Tibet and India with an alias of ”Zuoming Buddha Mother.” ”Zuoming” means specially used for performing dharmas. She and Ragaraja are equally listed as great love and respect deities.
The White Sect of Tibetan Vajrayana often has her as the secret personal deity. It is an uncommon esoteric practice. It is said that many greatly accomplished practitioners all had Kurukulle as their principal deity and attained buddhahood in the current life. This great dharma has been always extremely secretive.
The power of Kurukulle is extraordinary. She is a magnificent bodhisattava that transcends the world. Her origin is Amitabha.
Kurukulle is red because she originates from Amitabha. Her heart mantra is ”om。gu-lu-gu-lie。 chu-li。 so-ha,” where the ”chu-li” is the emblem of Amitabha.
Kurukulle holds a bow, arrow, lasso, and hook.
”Bow and arrow:” One’s mind will feel adoration once one is shot by her utpala flower arrow, like Cupid in Greek mythology.
”Lasso:” To be cast out and tied to the other party tightly. If the other party is someone that one likes, then it represents ”small love and respect” If the other party is a group of people, then it represents ”large love and respect.”
”Hook:” To hook someone. Use the hook to hook someone or one’s superior if one wishes someone or one’s superior be nice to oneself. Once hooked, that someone or the superior will be civil towards you.
Kurukulle is capable of magnetizing entire sentient beings other than just affecting love and respect between opposite sexes, families, at work, and socials. Kurukulle has great authority and power. She is a greatly respected authority. She also has the effect of subjugation.
One gains great love and respect by practicing Kurukulle dharma. If one is a politician, then one can be a president and be admired by the people. If one is in the realm of religion, then one can undertake a Buddha career and become the founder of a sect. If in show business, then one will have millions and millions of fans. Regardless of the size that is as large as a country or society, or as small as family concord, personal marriage, career, etc., all will receive the strongest strength of love, respect and harmony. If one desires to become a leader, a president, or a king, then when one practices ”Kurukulle Dharma” it will enable her to attract all sentient beings and make them to believe in, praise, elect, and advocate you. She is a Buddha Mother possessing great authority.
One practicing the sadhana of Kurukulle will be reborn in the Kurukulle Pure Land, which transcends the Three Realms. Her pure land resides within a rock cave. Therefore, when practicing the Kurukulle sadhana, one is able to not only obtain something most precious, but also be extraordinarily delivered to the Buddha Land of Kurukulle, which is the Western Pure Land of Ultimate Bliss.
【Kurukulle’s Four Vows】
- The ”earth” vow: Fortune for everyone.
Earth grows everything, everything including not only crops, but also houses and land produced from earth. Therefore, Kurukulle has a vow of earth that enables you to acquire wealth.
- The ”Water” vow: Eradicates calamities and cures diseases.
Water has the strength of purification. It detoxifies and purifies your body because of the Water vow. It cleanses sentient beings’ illness with water.
- The ”Fire” vow: Helps sentient beings with love, respect and perfection.
Do you know why humans like us adore someone? It is because the fire has produced in that someone’s heart, not the fighting or angry kind of fire, but the fire of desire. Once a desire emerges, it engenders love and respect. As soon as the red fire arises, as if magnetized, falling in love at first sight transpires. It cannot be dodged. This belongs to fire, Kurukulle’s fire vow.
- The ”Wind” vow: Provides the strength of subjugation.
When in need of subjugating an enemy or dispersing a villain, we can chant ”Kurukulle” a hundred thousand times and then blow a single puff at the person. The person will soon be in the North Pole. If you blow a puff at one you dislike, he or she will quickly transfer to somewhere else. If you and your supervisor are not compatible, you chant the mantra of Kurukulle then blow a puff at the supervisor; you will soon have a new supervisor who will like you!
The key cultivating formula for ”Kurukulle Yoga” is to place five red candles and five red flowers together when practicing it. Kurukulle will manifest when you complete six hundred thousand recitations of her mantra. The wishes you have prayed to her for will all be granted.
【Kurukulle Ten-direction Arrow-shooting Sadhana】
Kurukulle is a guardian of the ten-direction heavens which includes the Twelve Heavens, The Twenty Heavens, and the Twenty-Eight heavens. All of them are associated with Kurukulle. The Ten-direction Arrow-shooting sadhana represents the ”Great Perfection of Kurukulle.” Although shooting arrows in the ten directions, she will not miss a single one. One must pray for ”Kurukulles above, Kurukulles below, and Kurukulles in the eight directions.” In totality, they constitute the ten directions which guarantees that no misses will occur.
When one practices the sadhana of the Ten-direction Arrow-shooting, the peach blossom arrows and smoke offerings will flow everywhere in the ten directions. One’s infinite charisma will affect whoever is shot by the arrows. If one somehow is unable to be the President this life, one will definitely be the President in the next life. Furthermore, in the next life, one will be wealthy. Whatever one desires to pursue, such as fame, status, or prosperity, one will succeed. Kurukulle does not only possess arrows. She also has a hook capable of hooking everything wished for, and a lasso capable of fastening whatever desired. All wishes will come true for certain. Practicing this dharma, one will experience a smooth love life and a perfect marriage. One will attain respect from one’s superiors, colleagues, and all people, which is a wide-ranged love and respect. This is the primary significance of the Kurukulle Ten-direction Arrow-shooting Practice.
