Zhuge Changqing: Adding the Eight Heavenly Dragon Guardian Gods to the food offering



The Buddha said that giving food is blessed by the Buddha and Bodhisattvas, the good gods and the eight heavenly dragons, which is true.

...... Zhuge Changqing

I. What are the "Eight Heavenly Dragons"?

Zhuge Changqing: The Eight Heavenly Dragons are the gods who protect Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and other righteous and good laws on earth, and are the righteous gods who protect practitioners with boundless powers and magical abilities.

Who are the Eight Heavenly Dragons?

Zhuge Changqing has compiled a list of the Eight Heavenly Dragons as follows.

The One Day Crowd of Dharma Protectors (various types of heavenly protectors)

The Second Dragon Guardian Gods (all kinds of dragon protectors)

Three Night Fork Guardian Gods (ghost soldiers and ghost generals who carry out orders)

Four gods and goddesses of the qian da po (gods of incense)

Five Asura protector deities (gods of love and hate in battle)

Six Garuda protector deity (jia lou luo 大鹏金翅鸟)

vii the protector deity of the tightrope (the god of music)

Eight mo hou luo jia protector deity (mo hou luo jia python god)

Secondly, why did you join the Eight Divisions of the Heavenly Dragon?

Zhuge Changqing: Because the Eight Heavenly Dragons, like the Buddha and Bodhisattvas, protect those who do good deeds and protect the peace of the nation, and they also protect the giving of food. Their names are added for three reasons.

One is to thank them for blessing the giving of food.

Secondly, to thank them for blessing themselves.

Thirdly, to show respect for the eight good gods of the Heavenly Dragons and the Eight Gods of Dharma Protection.

Third, how do I chant the names of the Eight Heavenly Dragons?

Zhuge Changqing: When reciting the names of the Eight Heavenly Dragons, you can recite each of them three times and add the phrase "All the good deities protect the Dharma deities" at the end.

The heavenly protector deities, the dragon protector deities, the night fork protector deities, the dryad protector deities, the asura protector deities, the kaluna protector deities, the kunara protector deities, the mahoraga protector deities, all the good gods protector deities.

IV. Effectiveness of chanting

Zhuge Changqing: In addition to chanting for food giving, you can chant when you are practising. Let yourself give food to be blessed and let yourself be blessed. (Do not chant while walking)

The Eight Heavenly Dragons and the God of Goodness, bless the food giving and protect you.

Let you be full of confidence, all righteousness, majesty, fighting spirit, divine powers, solemn appearance, boundless wisdom and praised by others.

V. Place to add food for charity

Zhuge Changqing: It can be added after the name of the good deity in the food-giving ritual. Beginners can refer to the "Zhuge Changqing Food Giving Ritual (15 Steps)".

6. Do I need to return the prayers to them after chanting? How do I give them back the final prayer?

Zhuge Changqing: It is recommended that each time you give a food offering, you should also give them a final return. Specifically, you can add this to the return prayer.

"Return to the gods who have blessed this food offering: superb wisdom, boundless Dharma power, vast magical powers, solemn appearance, becoming first-class gods, blessing the good teachings of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism to reside on earth for a long time, blessing me and my whole family with prosperity and good fortune, blessing me to propagate the Dharma and benefit sentient beings."

This will do.

Do not do evil and practice all good deeds.

Zhuge Changqing, may you succeed.
