On May 1, 2011, at 2 p.m., I arrived at the Asia World-Expo in Hong Kong to conduct a Mahamayuri Water Offering Ceremony. During this major ceremony, I bestowed empowerments for the following sadhanas:
Mahamayuri Starlight Bodies Sadhana
Mahamayuri Rain Supplication Sadhana
Mahamayuri Nectar Water Sadhana
I was staying at the W Hotel. Before departing for the ceremony, I prayed to Mahamayuri:
“Will you give me an auspicious sign?”
I asked, “What kind of a sign?”
Mahamayuri replied, “It will look like a strand of pearls.”
I was baffled and asked, “What will look like a strand of pearls?”
Mahamayuri replied, “You will know when the time comes!”
I boarded the tour bus, and when everyone settled down and took their seats, the bus started moving towards the cross roads in front of the hotel. Suddenly, everyone cried out: “Look at that fleet of Ferraris, moving along like a strand of pearls.”
Everyone was looking out the window, with dazed looks on their faces.
Outside the window, a fleet of close to a hundred Ferraris moved through the cross section. Ferrari sports cars are quite expensive cars. This sign greatly astonished me.
A pearl strand fleet of Ferraris.
Matching the honorable sadhanas to be transmitted.
This is, of course, a great yogic response.
(This major ceremony turned out to be an auspicious success. Thirty-thousand students attended the ceremony. All three venues in the Expo center were filled to capacity!)
During the ceremony, I described the essence of the Mahamayuri Starlight Bodies Sadhana. However, the description I gave was a brief one, and I feel a need to elaborate on it, so students will not be at a loss after hearing the practice.
This is an addendum to the practice:
1. Transform the Sanskrit seed syllable “YU ” to a peacock.
