【Living Buddha Lian-sheng Sheng-yen Lu Discourse - Red Manohara Vasudhara Background and Accomplishments】
Red Manohara Vasudhara (Gou Cai Tian Nu in Chinese) is the same deity as the Vajrayana deity ''Gou She Cai Xu Mu.'' The ''mu'' character has a broad interpretation. It signifies ''female'' and has the same meaning as the ''nu.'' Therefore, ''Tian Mu'' is used interchangeably with ''Tian Nu. ''
When Amitabha Buddha was establishing the Western Pure Land of Ultimate Bliss, Red Manohara Vasudhara accompanied him by his side as he travelled through a trillion buddha lands. Red Manohara Vasudhara came swirling out from Amitabha Buddha's immovable heart as an emanation, carrying a vajra hook to hook the quintessence of each buddha land, thus creating the entire Western Pure Land of Ultimate Bliss.
Red Manohara Vasudhara brought all gold into the Western Pure Land, and formed the ground of the Western Pure Land out of gold. She brought in trees made of seven treasures from the Huayan Pure Land. She brought ambrosia from other pure lands to the Western Pure Land of Ultimate Bliss and transformed it into water with eight merits. She brought in *Indra's Luminous Pearl Net to build countless palaces. In this way, the Western Pure Land of Ultimate Bliss became the richest, most perfect, and most beautiful of all the buddha pure lands.
Red Manohara Vasudhara has dominion over all the wealth deities and is the greatest wealth deity in the Western Pure Land. Attainment of spiritual union with Red Manohara Vasudhara is equivalent to attainment of spiritual union with Amitabha Buddha. It is also the attainment of the wisdom of the Tathagata. At the same time, one attains spiritual union with Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva, Mahasthamaprapta Bodhisattva, Vajrayana's Five Jambhalas, and all wealth deities. This is the wonderful attribute of Red Manohara Vasudhara.
A mountain god is a fortune god of the earth whereas a dragon king is a fortune god of the sea. The Four Heavenly Kings are the fortune gods of the heavens. All the fortune gods are abundantly wealthy. As for the pure lands, Red Manohara Vasudhara is the highest fortune god.
Red Manohara Vasudhara holds a vajra hook in her right hand and a treasure spewing mongoose in her left hand. She is red and wears a beautiful crown. In Tibet, Red Manohara Vasudhara is depicted as a 16-year-old girl. Nowadays, we consider children to be adults when they reach 18. In Tibet and India, girls mature at an earlier age. In these countries, 16 is considered the perfect age.
Red Manohara Vasudhara's mantra is: ''om。ma-ruo-ha-ri-ah。ha-ri-ah。om。 yin-ku-sa。yin-ku-sa。seh-seh-seh。hum-hum-hum。pei。so-ha。'' Of the mantra syllables, ''ma-ruo-ha-ri-ah'' is her name. The syllables ''yin-ku-sa。yin-ku-sa。seh-seh-seh。hum-hum-hum。pei。so-ha'' mean she bestows the world''s fortune and provisions upon practitioners. This is the meaning of the mantra. ''Ha-ri-ah'' is her name. ''Yin-ku-sa。yin-ku-sa。seh-seh-seh。hum-hum-hum。'' is the sound of her spreading money.
When cultivating Red Manohara Vasudhara Practice, one forms the Hook Mudra. Visualize that the vajra hook begins to move, enlarges and expands outwards. One uses the vajra hook to hook whatever one desires back to one's home. Visualize whatever one wishes being dropped from the hook infinitely like a boundless sea of clouds. The key point is to visualize Red Manohara Vasudhara's hook moving while one's Hook Mudra is also moving. This is the key practice point. One can also visualize Red Manohara Vasudhara's eyelashes transforming into a hook, hooking all wealth and riches down from space.
Upon completing a cultivation session, one recites the Red Manohara Vasudhara Praise Verse:
(Boundless past deeds of virtues
Transmute into wealth, longevity, and magnificence
Buddha Mother bestows upon practitioner riches and treasure
I pay homage to the enriching Buddha Mother)
Red Manohara Vasudhara can eradicate disasters and calamities, bestow and increase riches and wealth, bless one to get a promotion, deliver beings in the netherworld to the pure land, increase the power of love and respect, cure disease and illness, and remove karmic obstacles. Whatever we wish for, Red Manohara Vasudhara will hook it for us.
Practitioners can also hook down all buddhas and bodhisattvas with the vajra hook. As buddhas and bodhisattvas are flying by on clouds, one pulls down the vajra hook. Avalokiteshvara and Amitabha will descend. The buddhas and bodhisattvas will be hooked and descend. One then receives their blessings.
If a disaster occurs, one can eradicate it by hooking it away with the vajra hook. If one has any kind of bad luck, one can use the hook to banish it, hooking it far, far away. Red Manohara Vasudhara is a very important deity. Anything good can be hooked in and anything bad can be hooked away. As long as one attains spiritual union with Red Manohara Vasudhara, one's wishes will always be fulfilled.
The Dharma power of Red Manohara Vasudhara is tremendous. This deity is truly special, and her practice is only found in the True Buddha School.
