【Red Manohara Vasudhara Dharmalakṣaṇa Brief Introduction】
''Red Manohara Vasudhara'' has a red body and the looks of a 16 year old girl. She wears silken celestial garments and is ornamented with precious jewels. She looks vigorous and radiates bright light. In her right hand she holds a ''Vajra Hook'' and left hand, a ''treasure spewing mongoose.'' She is sitting with her right leg slightly extended and her left leg bent inward.
【Living Buddha Lian-sheng Sheng-yen Lu Dharma Talk - Red Manohara Vasudhara Background and Accomplishments】
Red Manohara Vasudhara, or ''Gou Cai Tian Nu'' (in Chinese characters) is the same deity as the Vajrayana deity ''Gou She Cai Xu Mu.'' The ''Mu'' character is very broad in 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 was by his side accompanying him as he travelled through a trillion buddha lands. Red Manohara Vasudhara came swirling out from Amitabha Buddha's unmoved heart as an emanation, carrying a ''Vajra Hook'' to hook the quintessence of each buddha land, thus establishing the entire Western Pure Land of Ultimate bliss.
Red Monohara Vasudhara brought all gold into the Western Pure Land, and formed the ground of the Western Pure Land from gold. She brought in the 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 make countless palaces. Thus, the Western Pure Land of Ultimate Bliss became the richest, the most perfect, and the most beautiful of all the Buddha Pure Lands.
Red Manohara Vasudhara is the greatest wealth deity in the Western Pure Land and has dominion over all the wealth deities. A practitioner's attainment of spiritual union with Red Manohara Vasudhara is equivalent to attainment of spiritual union with Amitabha Buddha. One thereby attains the wisdom of the Tathagata and one also attains spiritual union with Guan Yin Bodhisattva and Mahasthamaprapta Bodhisattva. In addition, the practitioner also attains spiritual union with all the wealth deities, and each of the ''Five Jambalas'' of Tantric Buddhism. This is the wonderful attribute of Red Manohara Vasudhara.
A Mountain God is the fortune god of the earth whereas the Dragon King is the fortune god of the sea. The Four Heavenly Kings are the fortune gods of the heavens. All the fortune gods are abundantly wealthy. The highest level fortune god in the pure lands is Red Manohara Vasudhara.
In her right hand Red Manohara Vasudhara holds a Vajra Hook. In her left hand she holds a treasure spewing mongoose. She is red in color and wears a beautiful crown. In Tibet Red Manohara Vasudhara is depicted as a girl who is 16 years old. Presently, we consider children to be adults at the age of 18. In Tibet and India, however, girls are mature at an earlier age and in these countries 16 years old is considered the perfect age.
Her 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 which, ''ma-ruo-ha-ri-ah'' is her name and ''yin-ku-sa。yin-ku-sa。seh-seh-seh。hum-hum-hum。pei。so-ha'' means she bestows fortune and provisions of heaven and earth to 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'' the practitioner forms the ''Hook Mudra.'' Visualize that the ''Vajra Hook'' begins to move, then enlarges and expands outwards. One uses the ''Vajra Hook'' to hook whatever one needs and bring it back to oneself. Visualize whatever one wants being dropped from the hook infinitely like a boundless sea of clouds. The most important point is to visualize ''the movement of Red Manohara Vasudhara's hook while the Hook Mudra one has formed also moves.'' This is the key practice point. The practitioner can also visualize that ''Red Manohara Vasudhara's'' eyelashes transform into a hook, hooking all wealth and riches down from the empty space.
At the conclusion of the cultivation, one chants the praise verse to ''Red Manohara Vasudhara:''
(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 subjugate disasters and calamities, bestow wealth, 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 it is that we may wish for Red Manohara Vasudhara will hook that for us.
Practioners can also hook down all buddhas and bodhisattvas with the Vajra Hook. As buddhas and bodhisattvas are flying by on clouds in the sky, you pull down the vajra hook. Avalokiteshvara and Amitabha will descend. The buddhas and bodhisattvas will be hooked and will descend to where we are. We then receive their blessings.
If disasters occur you can hook them away with the Vajra Hook and get rid of them. If any kind of bad fate comes your way use the hook to get rid of it, banishing 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 you receive spiritual union with Red Manohara Vasudhara your 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.
After attending Living Buddha Lian-sheng's Red Manohara Vasudhara Ceremony, Ms. Nuntaya Komarakul na nakorn (Ying), a disciple from ''Deju Cultivation Association'' in Thailand, has sincerely cultivated this practice on a daily basis. For the last three year she has continuously won prizes in the amount of NT100,000-200,000 per month on average. Such genuine response is truly amazing!
