Master Tony Chew
Master Tony Chew
By Desmond Yeoh
A small shop lot in the MPL building is always packed after lunch up till about five in the evening. I have always been curious why this is so but I did not bother to investigate further. One day, while having my lunch in a vegetarian restaurant nearby the shop lot, one of the workers there mentioned about ‘the Master’.
“Who is this master you mentioned?” I asked.
With a surprised look on his face, the worker responded, “You have not heard of him?”
When I confirmed that I have not he said, “When he was younger, the Master went to train in Thailand under Buddhist monks. He developed the ability to look into the past lives and future of others and is now using that ability to serve humanity. In the morning, he will assist police officers with criminal and missing person cases. He only comes in after lunch. He has helped people who were terminally ill or disturbed by spirits”.
Referring to the use of his abilities to help with criminal cases, I responded, “It must be a very heaven burden to do this type of work”.
“He just wants to protect the youngsters from the clutches of crime. He needs very little sleeps. After his efforts here, he will go to the Puxian Buddhist centre and continue his work there, sometimes up to 4am in the morning. There are even more devotees there. I will help him too. I have been with him for more than 20 years”.
He then took out a picture of the Master from his wallet. The picture was taken by another devotee. In the picture, a white shape of a Buddha could be seen around the Master’s body as if the aura was mimicking the Master’s movements.
On the same day, I joined in the queue to meet the Master. He had a kind smile on his face and appeared regal. I spent just a few minutes with him but left his presence feeling very joyful.
I recommend a friend, Karen (not her real name) to see the Master and her experience was extraordinary. Normally, one has to queue for one or two hours before getting the chance to meet him. However, she was very surprised when the Master called out her name because she has never met him before. There is no way that the Master could have known her name. Prior to meeting the Master, she had her ancient Nadi Leaf read and what the Master told her was consistent with the Nadi leaf. The Nadi leaves are said to be prepared by the ancient Siddhas centuries ago in anticipation that the relevant person will eventually come looking for it.
A few days later, I visited my Brother at a condominium in Taman Desa and saw some of Master Tony Chew’s devotees. I could recognise them by the shirt they were wearing which carried the mantra ‘OM AMI DEWA SEY”; a mantra related to the Amitabha Buddha and the Medicine Buddha. The next day, I visited the vegetarian restaurant and asked the same worker about it.
He explained that they were there to help a devotee whose house was being disturbed by a spirit. They went there to pray for the spirit so that it could forgive the devotee for whatever wrong she had done and to be reborn in a higher plane. Master Tony Chew will never use force to remove a spirit because he works through compassion. Eventually, the spirit will recognise that the Master and his devotees are actually trying to help it and depart on its own free will. He stressed, “We use the power of compassion that comes from our group and do not use any kind of force”.
I agree with this approach because even if the spirit is successfully forced away, it may return or leave to harm someone else. It is a better approach to help the victim indirectly by helping the spirit that is disturbing him.
A few years ago, a local television station made a documentary on Master Tony Chew. In the documentary, a devotee shared the story that she was possessed by some animal spirits that she killed as a hunter in her previous life. When possessed, she was so strong that even seven strong men could not control her. Through the help of the Master and his devotees, she was eventually freed from those spirits.
In the show, a father told the story of a problem with his son who could not speak. The doctors could not diagnose the problem and so the father turned to Master Tony Chew and his group of devotees for help. Eventually, his son learnt to speak. There are many other stories shared by the devotees in the documentary.
I am writing this article not as an endorsement of Master Tony Chew because I have only met him recently. I want to share this information with the readers so that they can decide from themselves if they need the Master’s help for any major problem that they are currently facing. I often say that the best way to evaluate a Master is to look has his disciple. The worker who has been with him for more than 20 years appears to me as a kind and gentle soul. Perhaps this is a reflection of the compassion of Master Tony Chew.
