Tips on Mo Divination

For the benefit of Buddhists worldwide, let me share with you a few good uses of the Tibetan Mo divination. Let's say, you know someone who has been diagnosed with some serious illness and you do not know which doctor/hospital will be good for him/her where the surgery will be successful or that will aid in his/her quick recovery. In this case, you can consult a Mo divination and see a good Lama or a lay practitioner of this type of divination. And there are experts in this field who are not necessarily high lamas/rinpoches. The accuracy of this divination depends largely on how expert the person is and how sincere he is in helping the seeker.

When you consult a Mo expert, you should first list out your options. For instance, in the case above, you options might be: -

1. Doctor A of Hospital A
2. Doctor B of Hospital B
3. Doctor C of Hospital C
4. Doctor D of Hospital D
5. Doctor E of Hospital E

It is best to have at least 5 options. That's because the MO divination comes with 5 results. But, you should have at least 3 options. You are discouraged to have only 2 options. You see, if you don't provide yourself options, there could be other options that are better and you are not putting these on the table for consultation. Hence, sometimes when things do not work out, or less than expectations, you cannot blame the MO divination nor the consultant, but yourself for not giving yourself enough options during the MO consultations.

Next, is to construct your "question" carefully. What is it you want to consult? Your question must be single-minded and focused. You cannot put 2 or 3 things into one question. For example, in the case above, you can construct your sentence in these ways: -

1. Would the patient's eye operations be successful if he/she visits Dr. A of Hospital A? (in this question, you are focusing on successful operation)

2. Would the patient have the best chance of recovery post surgery by visiting Dr. A of Hospital A? (in this question, you are focusing of post-surgery recovery)

Other example on property selection and job selection are:

1. Will this property provide the owners with wealth? (this question focuses on wealth only. Again I caution against putting many things such as "..wealth, good career, have many children". Don't be greedy. If you need to, do each one seperately.)

2. Will I, by accepting job offer X, be able to gain quick promotions? (this one focuses on promotions and not annual increments, bonuses, harmony with colleagues, etc) You can consult this if you receive more than one job offer and you are not sure which to accept.

Of course, you can generalise by using the word "happiness", but it will dilute the focus of the divination. You may get happiness, but in what way? You won't know. You get what I mean?

A good Mo expert will be able to extract from you what you really want and may even help you focus on what you want. This is important because the expert is going to focus on that question and different focus will give different results.

Hence, you should choose your questions carefully and ask the divination to consult for you by asking the same question over all your options. Remember that it is possible to come up with more than one "Excellent" results. If that is the case, then you can go for either options. It does not matter. Again, remember how you had asked the Expert or Lama the question. How he phrases the question while doing the divination is important! If got two same results, it could also mean the "question" might need to be rephrased in another way to determine which one you should choose (i.e. by looking into other aspects of the issue you are consulting).

For those who do not know what is Mo divination, can always search in the internet. But the above are some tips from me based on my personal experiences while seeking Mo consultations and other types of divinations. I was having some "issues" and I was seeking answers from divinations. I learn some of these through one expert (who is not a Lama) and some through my own realisation via "trial and errors" while doing the "seeking". You get what I mean? I realise that how you ask the questions also makes a difference. But I am not a Mo expert. I just know how to approach a Mo divination with an expert. Nevertheless I am sharing these knoweldge and "tips" with you so that you know what to do... not every Lama or Mo expert will know these "tips". So, use it carefully and wisely for the benefit of all sentient beings. Don't let my tips go to waste for trivial purposes. If used wisely, it could be a tool of your own Bodhicitta activities.

Thank you very much for your blogs on Mo. I practise Mo quite frequently and have found it to be very accurate - sometimes amazingly so. In reciprocation Id like to invite you to read my Wordpress blog, Pali Suttas. Namaskar!
