Advice on worldly affairs

Postby alpha » Thu Jul 01, 2010 12:27 pm

I am a vajarayana buddhist(kagyu School) and planning to buy a house.

The problem is i haven't had any success yet for 2 months in a row.
In my country we don't have the culture of going to an estate agent and ask him to search for the house you want.

So i decided to search for it myself by going from village to village every day. There are lots of houses where nobody lives in because the owners have moved to cities. I had contacted many of them but they don't want to sell .It is not a question of me not having enough money and trying to force them into a little profitable affair for them.No , is not like that. I have enough money to buy the exact property i want and to offer the price the property deserves but had not much success in finding one.

So now my question is how can i increase my luck or what sort of practice can i do to succeed in this venture.I am only familiar with vajrayana practices.

It could be a question of merit.I may not have enough merit.

Another thing is that i really don't know how to look at this situation from a buddhist point of view.

Does it somehow mean that i shouldn't try to buy a house and do something else or what?
I don't know how to see this.

I need advice on this situation because i feel that i am stuck and don't know how to proceed further.
Any advice and thoughts on this matter will be much appreciated.
Thank you.

With desire the seeking for a house is having easely dissatisfaction included. Find a solution in which things need not so strongly and quick.

The less desire for own benefit: the less suffering. I should not forcefully seek. No worldly clinging and take the path.

Many lives on streets; when one buy a house, make the wish others will have protection of a roof.

Mantras for merit:

Jang Chub Sempa Chenpo
Kuntu Zangpo La Chag Tse Lo (3x)

Tayatha Om Pentsa Driya Ava Bodhi Nay Svaha (7x)

Om Duru Duru
Dzaya Mukhe Svaha (7)

Good luck!
