What is Vajrayana (Jin-Gang Cheng)? What's the benefit of learning it?
Sound Method: Specific Sound (music note, sound frequency) possesses incredible and mystical power. Its sound vibration could break glass, destroy building, bridge whenever the sound frequency and the object’s frequency are the same and producing harmonic resonance. Sound Method is a combination of various frequencies. It will produce an enormous invisible force to readjust our body’s imbalance. Tibet Tantric Jin- Gang Gong basically applied this particular method to our exercise, enhance our spiritual level, strengthening our health and healing. This specific sound is called ‘True Words’, ‘Special Sound’ or Mantra. It is a coded message. Different coded message has different effect and purpose. Tibet Tantric Jin-Gang Gong is also called ‘Vajrayana’, ‘True Word Yana’ or ‘Mantra Tuo-Lo-Ni’. Yana is a term applied to Buddhism as carrying men to salvation. In this particular case, we use sound or musical note to yana people. Mantra, in Tantra, is a sanscrit word also called Mang-Tuo-Lo, its religious definition is coded message of Buddhas & Bodhisattvas, comes from the heart of Bhutatathat, true and real truth-wisdom is so-called ‘True Words’. Once empowered by Buddhas Bodhisattvas, it possesses high potent energy of the universe. Therefore, chanting Mantra is to communicate with the highest energy of the universe.
In Tantric Scripture, they describe Mantra derives from the empowerment of Buddhas Bodhisattvas’ cultivation chanting. In other words, mantra is the cumulative blessing of Buddhas through thousands of years of cultivation & empowerment deriving these true words. ‘True words’ is the communication signal between humans and Buddhas, if chanting in sincerity will arouse Buddhas’ commitment to fulfill our wishes, empower us with virtue and merit. The cultivator’s true-nature merit will appear and develop an unimaginable phenomenon which can rid of sins, aid blessings, benefit wisdom, prevent interference, eliminate calamity, avoid bad karma.

Understanding of cultivating mind leads to Buddha’s enlightenment, what the relationship between the physical practice and becoming Buddha?
