Ghost Month (Lunar July)
The lunar month of July, is well-known as the “ghost month” by the Chinese or I should say Asian. In Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia and so on, the month of July is the month that people all gathered up and started to worship the ghosts on the streets and you can see temples of Taoist and Buddhist all doing ceremonies for the dead as well. Well what’s so special about this month? People even rumor that during this month you gotta be careful because the hell gate opens on July 1st (lunar) and close on July 15th. So during the 15 days, ghosts will come from hell to our realm here and so if you walk on the street at night, they might bump into you and so on that causes bad luck and even death………..
Crazy rumors, superstitious people and just a big scam – that’s what shaped up the festival and traditions. What else? I am a Taoism master and I can tell you by heart that this is another BUDDHISM SCAM.
The start of this scam really started a long time ago by the Chinese Buddhism in China. They made up a story and spread it all over the place which started the tradition and that is the story of a person called “white lotus” wanting to save her mother from hell because her mother was dead. Then it goes like this.. she somehow went into hell herself and magically a Buddha appeared and was touched by her strong will and turns out they let her mother back to life, then from that day on, people started to celebrate that day by worshipping the souls from hell .. Buddhism temple then provide this tradition to people saying during the month of July(lunar) the hell gates opens every year just like in the story and close on July 15th. So souls of the dead will come up to our world during these 15 days and so you can gather up and burn paper money and hell bank notes for them on the street, it’s like gathering up a super pot luck for them to enjoy. The Buddhist then tell you that it is good karma to give for these souls. As time goes on, the Taoist temple want to earn some big bucks too and so they setup another event around the time and do ceremonies for the dead as well which also grabbed a bunch of believers to give them plenty of cash as well. This is truly a rumor and a scam. Why? Let me explain.
First, the souls of the dead are in the yin-realm of our planet earth and they are really opposite of our nature. We human are yang in nature and so when we feel they are around, they will make us feel cold, shaky, trembling and so on. They are cold, yes, for people who have dealt with spiritual problems they should know that when ghosts are around, you feel cold too. That’s why when people see ghosts or felt a ghost around, they trembles. This will tell you that in order for ghosts to feel good in our yang realm here, the yang energy flow in nature must be low and the yin energy flow in nature must be high. In Chinese astronomy, we know that summer is the season with highest active yang energy flow and winter before December 22-24 is the period of the yang energy dying down to the lowest point and the yin energy flow is boosted to the highest point for the cycle to reset back after december 24th. You can see this in the 24 solar terms as well. After Dung-Jee (冬至), (winter comes), yang energy starts to grow again and yin energy starts to decrease. That means having the “ghost month” in the month of July with yang energy at the max point is just impossible to be convincing at all. If there is such a thing, it gotta be in december or november to make the scam more convincing. Too bad, Buddhist in China are stupid, they only know how to follow the scams and not see the flaw, so they have this flaw here.. maybe they got too poor and want cash so bad. Now that’s the theoretical side to knock down the scam. Let me tell you another thing that also knocks the scam down as well.
During the lunar month of July, many Buddhist temple do ceremonies for the dead and say they are doing offerings and chantings for the wandering souls from hell, so people can join their events and burn paper money there and pay a fortune to them to donate for good karma. I have always been curious about how it is like and so we drove by the biggest Buddhist temple in Toronto in 2008 and see what’s it about. Holy crap, the temple do have a lot of ghosts around — but they are all tied up and chained together and they all are controlled by the evil-god of the temple. We saw a lot of evil god (their so called Buddha but it looks very mean and ugly looking) and they were all holding onto chains and ropes with souls tied and linked together like slaves. The more ceremonies they do the more souls were captured and enslaved. The people who came out from the temple all have greenish and black energy on their forehead and face, you can see they are all greyish with a fog of green. That’s totally insane, they are all being cursed! Yep, if you go to these Buddhist temples in the month of July, you basically got cursed by their so called ceremony because the way they do it is that you can pay to have your ancestor also join the ceremony (just provide them the ancestor’s name and date of death, PLUS MONEY!) Then they will be able to get them to join. What happen is, they pull up the ancestor’s souls from hell and captured it, so their evil god will capture the soul of the person or it could be just any of your ancestors, and enslaved it there. Why do they want to do that? Well, having your ancestor’s soul captured there makes your mind always want to go back and so they can make you a long lasting client, that is the way they do business there. It’s called brainwashing magic. If you don’t go back, you get bad luck and you feel you are missing something or you feel guilt. That’s already something I have proven with a few clients before and they all have the same problem after going to the Buddhist temple as well. People say that after going to this Buddhist temple, they got a car crash, bad luck, and sick as well. Too bad, sometimes people call for these scams just because they believed what the Buddhist promotes are true. Let me tell you, when a police ask a drug dealer “do you have drugs on you?” how often will they confess and tell you “yes”? Are you out of your mind? Of course it takes wisdom to see through the trap! If not then it’s not called a scam!
Let me tell you how to be safe in the month of lunar July. There are a few rules to follow and you will be for sure free of troubles.
1. Don’t believe in it, and don’t attend any events like these Buddhist crap.
2. Don’t burn paper money and all that, they could be already “empowered” or “blessed” by Buddhist monks in the shop already, so you will get cursed when you use it.
3. Don’t even go to any Buddhist temple and stuff.
4. Live a normal life, don’t be weird.
That’s basically it! The month of July is safe, there are not “opening of the hell gate” or the “closing of the hell gate”. There are no ghosts coming up from the hell realm and there are no ancestors souls to be coming up as well. The month of July, aside from Buddhist temple area, are all very clear and you can’t even see much ghosts around the streets. Ghosts don’t and cannot come from the hell realm or the yin realm like that. Just like human cannot crossover to their world like that as well. Think logically and don’t be fooled by the Buddhist scam! Even if it is true, burning paper money cannot work as well. When do you see a chicken leg falling down from the sky and it’s said to be from “hell realm – by your uncle who passed away in 1920″? If they cannot do it, why can you do it to them? LOL! Maybe if you got one, better blame it on Santa or your mom! LOL!
Well what if you went to these Buddhist temple and got scammed? Well, it depends, if you feel weird, guilty, bad, not well, etc,. You better find us and we can provide you solutions to resolve the problem because you have just been cursed by them before. If you don’t feel anything, then it’s good for you. Don’t fall for Buddhist scam, they are famous for scamming the naives and innocent. That’s purely how Buddhism is. From the start to now.. it’s just a scam. Buddhist in China got worst because the politic in Ching Dynasty is just so crooked, full of corruptions and so on. The Queen in Ching Dynasty wanted to make every temple into a Buddhist temple just because SHE like Buddhism. So Taoist are killed or forced to convert into Buddhism monks, Taoist temples were either knocked down or converted into Buddhism temples. You see that bitch Queen is like a ruler back then? She just want things done her way and there is zero tolerance. You convert or you die. If you talk about Buddhism is not good, you can get your head chopped off because there is a law back then saying “You cannot disobey or go against the kingdom”. If you say she is wrong, you have just committed a crime, the biggest crime, and so you can get executed immediately. That’s how scary it is.
Not to freak you out more, during the dying of the last dynasty of China, the person Sun Yat San (Suen Jung Shan) started the new China republic, but guess what, he is another scary guy, this guy is crazy, he is also head of the triad gangs as well. The China now is full of corruption, and the head of their politicians are all triad gangs head as well. If you look at their history and charts, you will know. Can’t believe how people can stand the corruptions and crooked politics in China. But that does tells you why China is so weird and their Buddhism temple can scam people like that easy. Basically you get brainwashed just like that.
Don’t fall for Buddhism scam, they are just evil.
