Get Rid of Bad Luck!

Published Pebrero 15, 2012 by jptan2012

There are a lot of Feng Shui tools that one can use to deal with bad luck. However, allow me to share four quick ways of ending bad luck.

1. Light an Incense!

Although the picture shows an even number of incense, when doing the ritual always use odd numbered of incense.

One of the quickest way of dealing with bad luck or negative energy is to light an incense. Try to get something that’s ‘pungent’. There are a lot incense in the market that really has no scent, except for the fact that they have a lot of smoke. When buying an incense make sure that you get something smells good when its lighted. For cleansing bad luck or negative energy try to get sandalwood or jasmine scented incense, in fact, it will be better if you can get something that’s made of read sandalwood or jasmine but they get to be a bit expensive.

If the bad luck is with your personal life, light the incense in your living room or in your bedroom.

If the bad luck is affecting your professional life, light the incense in your office or work space.

You can also do the incense ritual. Light an incense, make sure its odd number never even, and go around your house or office in a clockwise direction. While doing that recite the mantra OM AH HUM continuously. Make sure you do this three times and make sure that you enter each and every room of the place.

You can also seat on the floor, put 3 incense sticks in front of you, another 3 on your left, then another 3 on your right and 3 more behind you. Chant OM AH HUM or OM MANI PADME HUM 108 times. While doing imagine that you are enveloped by a bright light that’s cleaning you from bad energy.

If by the end of the cleansing ritual the incense hasn’t burned off, you can just put it on your altar or leave it at the center of your room.

2. Use Salt

When doing the salt cleaning ritual, please make sure that either rock salt or sea salt is used.

Salt is one of nature’s gift to mankind that also woks as a great tool in cleansing us from negative energies or bad luck. All you have to do is place about 2 tablespoon of salt at the four corners of the room – 2 tablespoons each corner. You can place this in a small container or you can just place them directly on the floor.

Again, if the bad luck is hitting your personal life do this in your house and bedroom.

If the bad luck is with your career life do it in your work place.

You can also add 2 tablespoons of salt on a pail of water and use it as your rinsing water. If using a bathtub, you can place a cup of salt on the tub full of water and you can just soak in it for a minimum of 5 minutes.

Please make sure you use rock salt or sea salt for this cleansing ritual.

3. Wear a powerful amulet like the Vajrapani Ruel or Surangama Mantra Amulet.

Vajrapani Ruel

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

Surangama Mantra Amulet N

Pure Land Buddhists believes that when you wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet, heavenly beings that has an affinity with you will hover over you.

Wearing an amulet that is blessed or consecrated by a high ranking lama or monk will help get rid of bad luck, but not only that it will also bestow upon the wearer or carrier of the said amulets to received a lot of blessings. In fact, this blog is full of personal testimonies of wanted to get rid of bad luck but got so much more like financial or wealth blessings.

4. Make a Donation

One of the simplest way to get rid of negative energy is for you to earn good karma by making a donation in any charity institution or religious institution. The amount or quantity of the donation is not important, what is important is the sincerity and willingness to do it.

5. Wear the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

I just thought I’d share this with my readers…

“To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.”
Confucius (551-479 BC)

The Victory Banner: A Powerful Feng Shui Tool for Career Success

Published Pebrero 15, 2012 by jptan2012

One of the most ubiquitous Buddhism symbol is the Victory Banner or Banner of Victory. You’ll usually see an image of the Victory Banner on the roofs of Buddhist temples in Bhutan, Tibet, Nepal, Cambodia, Thailand, Burma.

Victory Banner also called as The Banner of Victory

The Victory Banner is an emblem adopted by the Buddhist to signify the Historical Buddha’s, Sakyamuni (also spelled as Shakyamuni) Buddha, enlightenment. It is said that Sakyamuni Buddha himself has placed the very first Victory banner on top of Mt. Meru-a sacred mountain in Buddhism and Hinduism cosmology, and is considered s the center of all the physical, spiritual, mental, and metaphysical universe.

Placing the Banner of Victory or Victory Banner on your desk signifies that you’ll triumph all obstacles. Wearing an image of the Victory Banner as a pendant, specially if its made in gold, it becomes a powerful Feng Shui tool to herald your success against obstacles, competitions, envious people, hindrances.

Banner of Victory Pendant

If you want a project to go smoothly and for it to be successful, put a Banner of Victory on your table and/or wear a Victory Banner pendant.

I have a Victory Banner pendant made of gold which I always wear to ensure my success in an undertaking, specially if its a big project.

The Victory Banner is also one of the featured image in the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

Myth Buster 2: Running Into a Funeral is Bad Luck

Published Pebrero 15, 2012 by jptan2012

When we were younger, my parents and other elders will always tell us to look the other way around or even close our eyes whenever we ran into a funeral or a hearse with coffin inside. They say this is bad because the energy of death is extreme Yin and it might bring away our luck.

I’ve always adhere to this myth or belief until I learned Feng Shui and immerse myself deeply in Buddhism and Taoism. The truth is running into funeral march or meeting a funeral march is actually good luck. While its true that death is extreme Yin, running into a funeral takes away some of our bad luck.

An old Taoist monk shared with me that, in fact, meeting a funeral march is considered auspicious that you should throw a little money out of the window. This is to ‘repay’ the fact that some of your bad luck was taken away. Throw away some money signifies that you are paying it forward because some people who might be in need of money may come across your money that it helps him a little.

Kuan Kong

Published Pebrero 15, 2012 by jptan2012

Readers of my blog must now be superficially familiar with Kuan Kong (also called or spelled as Guan Gong, Guan Yu, Kuan Yu, Kwan Kong, Kwan Ti, Kuan Ti, Guan Ti, or Guan Sheng Di Jun).

Kuan Kong is the Chinese god of war. He protects and defends the oppressed and fights against all those who wish to take advantage of others. He is one of the Chinese gods of wealth as well, helping people pull in wealth and prosperity to their lives and homes.

This god of war is the ‘Saint Police Chief’, the god who commands all those who fight evil. Kuan Kong is the keeper of all good people and the fighter of those who intend to hurt them or cause them a problem of any kind. He protects people from being robbed, assaulted and from all kinds of crimes in general. This way, if you wish to feel more secure while being away from home, you can wear an image of Kuan Kong as a lucky charm and receive its protection wherever you go.

Kuan Kong is also the guardian of all business owners, politicians and leaders in general. Therefore, if you belong to one of these groups and have leadership responsibilities, you should have a Kuan Kong on your desk or at your workplace in order for it to guide and protect you from bad forces.

Unlike, Kuan Yin, Sun Wukong, and other famous Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Taoist Deities, Guan Gong is a historical figure that became a Bodhisattva (for the Buddhist) or a Deity (for the Taoist). He is also revered in Confucianism.

Kuan Kong may be one of the most popular Chinese historical figures. He was a very famous general during the era of the Three Kingdoms in China, and is largely responsible for the collapse of the Han Dynasty.

The web is such a treasure trove of the historical background of Kuan Kong so I will not talk about his life here. I would like to focus more on his relevance and importance in Feng Shui, Buddhism, and Taoism.

In Buddhism, Kuan Kong is called Qielan Pusa or Sangharama, which means Protector of the Buddhist Dharma. His image is usually placed at the far left side of the altar. On the other side is Wei Tuo or Skanda (I’ll write about Wei Tuo soon). In the middle, is usually the image of Kuan Yin.

Kuan Kong is on the left side, and on the right is Wei Tuo. In the middle is Kuan Yin. Picture is lifted from Google Images and is taken by Ridoneko.

In Taoism, Kuan Kong is considered as one of the most important deity. Some Taoist sect believes that the Jade Emperor – Lord of Heaven has, in fact, taken a ‘retirement’ and that Kuan Kong is now the new Ti Kong or Lord of Heaven. People usually visit Kuan Kong’s temple or pray to his image to ask for protection and wealth. This is largely due to the fact that Kuan Kong is a famous general and strategist. The honorable title Guan Sheng Di Jun or Saintly Emperor Guan is largely used in Taoism.

Picture taken inside a Kuan Kong (Guan Gong) temple in Chinatown in Binondo, Manila. The temple is called Philippine Chinese Buddhist Temple, however, given that the fact that they have an altar for the Jade Emperor and Pia Be Kong, or the Horse Lord, indicates that they're really aTaoist temple. This is very common among overseas Chinese, the distinction whether they're into Taoism or Buddhism is vague. This is largely due to the fact that their respect for other religions is so deep that they tend to mix it.

In Feng Shui, the image of Kuan Kong is used as a symbol of protection and of wealth. His image if perhaps one of the most powerful Feng Shui tool available to protect us from harm.

Allow me to share a story about a Malaysian Chinese guy that I met in Singapore who is extremely devoted to Kuan Kong.

Lim Way is a retail business owner in Malaysia; his store is about 45 minutes away from where he lives, which is in the ‘outskirts’ of the city.

One time, on his way home, he didn’t notice that unidentified men were following him. When his house help opened the gate for him, the unidentified men in masks went inside with him. They aimed a gun at him and told him to get off the car.

He said he still have the chance to escape. However, he knows that his children are inside, and fearing for their life, he got off the car and went inside with the unidentified men behind him.

His Kuan Kong is placed beside their main door. When he entered, he immediately noticed it and had the courage to push the door close. Unfortunately, one of the unidentified men was able to go inside the house with him. He saw the masked man looked at the Kuan Kong and for some reason; the guy went out of the house and all of them fled.

To this day he still believes that it was the image of Kuan Kong that saved him and his family from the unidentified men. To honor Kuan Kong from saving them from harm, and to continuously tap into Kuan Kong’s power and blessing, he and his family has also started wearing a Kuan Kong pendant.

This is just one story amongst the numerous testimonials I’ve heard from people who profess that Kuan Kong saved them from harm or danger.

To truly benefit from Kuan Kong it is best the one wears his image. It doesn’t matter whether its big or small, but do look  for an ‘angry’ looking Kuan Kong. At home, Kuan Kong is usually place on the altar, or facing the main door, in this way, it is said that he protects the house from negative energies such as bad spirits and also from bad people.

Kuan Kong is usually depicted as red-faced guy with long beard in green outfit. His outfit also has the image of 9 dragons. He is the only Taoist Deity and Buddhist Bodhisattva that have the image of nine dragons on his clothes. He usually carries a nine-ring sword.

Kuan Kong is one of the featured images in the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

You can also read Kuan Kong as a Bodhisattva in a post called – NAMO SANGHARAMA BODHISATTVA: A BODHISATTVA THAT PROTECTS, GRANTS WEALTH BLESSINGS, PROTECTS MARITAL RELATIONSHIPS AND IS BETTER KNOWN AS KUAN KONG.
