if no extra cash how? can tong 5 cents or not?
If ur total nett asset is only 5cents than ur are giving/donating 100% of what u had. As compared to those who have a million but have give/donate a thousand which is only 0.1%... charity is not in the term of amount but rather the willingness to part n share what u had with those who are deprive of.....it's the thought that counts.....

No, selflessness would be a form of self-denial which contradict Lord Buddha's Four Noble Truth. I would rather explain it as a " reflective loving self", someone whose heart n mind are fill with Bodhi-citta(unconditioñal love n wisdom) n someone who has the wisdom to reflect on their own n others' basic needs n wants.....u can cheat anyone but u can't cheat urself because there's Consciousness in every "Self"

Chant and learn about Buddhism ; how it can be applicable to your daily life and directions. It might not be instantaneous but gradually you will improve. Go to Buddhist temples and attend the morning services on the weekend and receive blessings by the Sangha, if you want to do a sincere charitable donation then do so but do not think the more you give the better you will be off. First generate merits by learning how to do merits and the good. Most Theravada Thai or Sri Lankan or Burmese temples do have Hindu deities and Arahants thus you could also pray to them.

Other than this, you could try visiting any Lord Sri Ganesha temples or Sri Maha Vishnu temples and circumambulate around the Holy Inner Sanctum. The temple at Sri Layan Sitthi Vinayagar temple fruit offering and chanting / blessing is only 0.50 Cents Singapore and 5.00 dollars Singapore for the 1008 Sahasranamah Chanting of 1008 Lord Sri Ganesha Holy Names and Titles for Blessings and they will give you some Vibhuthi or Holy Ash. Keep it on your altar and apply on your forehead or body when at home worshiping. The fruits you can eat and the flowers can be used to offer on your home altar.

Seek Lord Sri Ganesha blessings for removal of all of your obstacles and to place obstacles where he can protect you from harming or making the wrong mistakes in your choices and directions. If you are looking for financial gains and wisdom or strength and protection, look for a standing Lord Shri Ganesha picture or statue and pray. Just place the picture on your home altar or office , offer a small cup of whole or full cream milk and water and red syrup drink with some flowers and chant his name. Om Gam Ganapatayei Namaha x 9 times and asks for his blessings and protection when starting a new venture , business , work or investment.
 
Everyone life is different... some enjoy while others suffer. No point comparing. Just live life and do your best. Life itself is suffering.

Amulet does not do wonder. If they do, then there is no beggar on the street of Thailand. End of the day, if u still want to depend on amulet then read what others suggest.

The same goes in India then even though it is known as Arya Bhumi or Holy Land. If amulets, yantra, tantra and mantras are so powerful then there would be no poor, no illness, no sickness, no poverty, no homelessness and no murder or rape or corruption. No matter what , we all have to endure and do our very best to do what we can. I have known and seen some ladies or gentlemen who started off with nothing and as they age to 50 or 60 do become rich not just in monetary terms but also in family and bonding or love. The beginning of life, journey and death is suffering itself.

Cula-kammavibhanga Sutta: The Shorter Exposition of Kamma

translated from the Pali by
Ñanamoli Thera
© 1994

Introduction

by Bhikkhu Khantipalo



You want: long life, health, beauty, power, riches, high birth, wisdom? Or even some of these things? They do not appear by chance. It is not someone's luck that they are healthy, or another's lack of it that he is stupid. Though it may not be clear to us now, all such inequalities among human beings (and all sorts of beings) come about because of the kamma they have made individually. Each person reaps his own fruits. So if one is touched by short life, sickliness, ugliness, insignificance, poverty, low birth or stupidity and one does not like these things, no need to just accept that that is the way it is. The future need not be like that provided that one makes the right kind of kamma now. Knowing what kamma to make and what not to make is the mark of a wise man. It is also the mark of one who is no longer drifting aimlessly but has some direction in life and some control over the sort of events that will occur.

===========================


13. "Here, student, some woman or man is not a giver of food, drink, cloth, sandals, garlands, perfumes, unguents, bed, roof and lighting to monks or brahmans. Due to having performed and completed such kamma, on the dissolution of the body, after death he reappears in a state of deprivation... If instead he comes to the human state, he is poor wherever he is reborn. This is the way that leads to poverty, that is to say, not to be a giver of food, drink, cloth, sandals, garlands, perfumes, unguents, bed, roof and lighting to monks and brahmans.

14. "But here some woman or man is a giver of food, drink, cloth, sandals, perfumes, unguents, bed, roof and lighting to monks and brahmans. Due to having performed and completed such kamma, on the dissolution of the body, after death, he reappears in a happy destination... If instead he comes to the human state, he is rich wherever he is reborn. This is the way that leads to riches, that is to say, to be a giver of food, drink, cloth, sandals, garlands, perfumes, unguents, bed, roof and lighting to monks and brahmans.

Hello brothers and sisters, I'm a newbie to amulets and I would like to know what amulets I should get and where to get them in Singapore.

I have been having very bad luck for many years.. financial also quite tough. Do business also will take forever to close deals.
Always got fights with loved ones.
Getting injured randomly and unnecessarily.
Also I don't have the attraction from people anymore. It's like no one knows I exist. I go casino also everytime sure lose.

But I see all my friends so happy and have good financial life. But I'm here.
Please let me know what I can do...
Amulets I can give you. Do more donation and accumulate more good merits bro. Do text me on the amulets if keen.
 
If you are having a bad time please do not post anything here just read the stories and do your own gauging because if you post your unlucky experience you are making yourself vulnerable to alot of ppl.

They will pm you selling their stuff mainly stuff that are hype up stuff or stuff that even Thai people really do not wear or recommend you unknown bone meat stuff.

I have my bad luck period of one year plus whereby work got issues health grossly overweight and even spend 2k plus on tooth cavities alone.

I just read carefully and chose an aj fon roop from a reputable dealer with a shop with clean layout not those shop with barang and mainstream mixed together in glass showcase. Things gradually pick up from then.

My advise is really be careful as 90 percent of thread here are for advertising purposes if you know what I mean. However there are still very knowledgeable guy I sighted two such in this thread.
