Fifteen Merit Days: A Gift From Heaven To Help Save Us From The Ill Effects of the Year! (Part 1)

Published February 4, 2016 by jptan2012

For those of you who have read my post about my forecast this coming 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey would know by this time that while 10 of the 12 signs enjoy a generally positive to very positive outlook, except for the Ox and Tiger, the year’s forecast base on Bazi or Paht Chee chart is not very nice, there are several destructive pillars.

Also, the center star for the year is the #2 Flying Star, which for those who are familiar with Feng Shui knows that when a Flying Star lands on the center it becomes the ruling star. This means that’s going to be the pervading energy of the year. But as I repeatedly say, and again this is something that is so simple that it can be verified by a simple Feng Shui believer, the Illness Star is not simply a star that causes illness but rather it also causes accidents that may lead to long term illness or being bedridden. For this, my Guru Lama has come up with a special amulet that is good for combatting the ill effects of the ruling star of the year but also for generally to combat illness and to protect us from accidents. He is calling this amulet the Illness Suppression Amulet although I prefer calling it Illness and Accident Suppression Amulet.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

And there’s also the already dreadful #5 Flying Star (also known as Wu Wang or Five Yellow Star), which is made even stronger this year because it landed on the Northeast sector. This is a flying that send jitters to all those who are familiar with Feng Shui. In fact, I have seen so many people and business destroyed by this star. And all people born under the sign of the Ox and Tiger are greatly affected, and because of this they also become more susceptible to the Illness Star. But people whom whose bedroom or office is in the Northeast sector of the building or Northeast sector of the property are also likewise extremely affected. To top it off, houses or buildings whose entrance is facing the Northeast are also not spared. People with Kua number 2, 6, 7, 8 are also affected. Unfortunately, the only cure for this is the Five Element Pagoda made of metal. You should put one in your office or bedroom or entrance and more importantly you everybody who is affected regardless whether you have the 5 – Element Pagoda for ‘display’, you should also wear the Five Element Pagoda gold pendant. It has to be gold because you need the gold’s yang energy also to help enhance the energy of the Five Element Pagoda. As mentioned in my previous posts this is something that is extremely difficult to find, as of now, I only know of two possible people who can supply it. One is Lillian Too’s online store and the other one is a reader who happens to know the jewelry industry and decided to make one. I’m currently wearing one made by her. I personally find it beautiful and although I felt it was a little big, bigger than the one on Lillian Too’s online store, I find the craftsmanship quite good. You can get in touch with her by emailing her.

However, I know that a lot of my readers despite having the said cures would want to ensure that they get the utmost protection. Also, not everyone will have the means to acquire the said cures or amulets. But I have good news for everybody. I think fate has provided us with an opportunity to stock up on our merits to help serve as buffer and protection from the said ill effects of the years both from the Paht Chee chart of the year, Flying Stars and a few from the 24 Mountain Stars!

The first fifteen days of the year are considered as one of the most auspicious times of the year, that is why there are some stores who doesn’t open shop until on the 16th day of the first lunar year. This is the same with the Losar, which is the Tibetan New Year. Their first 15 days is also considered as one of the most auspicious time of the year. They often call these first 15 days as merit days, because if you create good deeds during these days the merits of these deeds are doubled or tripled. The Chinese New Year or Lunar New Year and the Tibetan New Year very rarely happen at the same time. In fact, since I started studying Feng Shui I don’t remember them happening at the same time. But it is truly amazing that this year the Chinese New Year and the Tibetan New Year will happen on the same date – February 8, 2016! This is truly a ‘once – in – a – blue moon’ occurrence, and this rare occurrence an alignment of auspicious and meritorious stars for the first 15 days of the Lunar New Year! From Feb. 8, 2016 to Feb. 22, 2016 we will have a chance to stock up on good merits to help create an extended protection or even blessings for this year of the Fire Monkey! This is truly heaven’s way of helping us! We might as well take advantage of this Fifteen Merit Days!

So how do you take advantage of the said Fifteen Merit Days, which I truly believe is a gift from heaven to help protect us from the ill effects of the year? As sincerely as possible, do good deeds on these days. Donate to a charity or church or temple. Feed the poor. Physically volunteer in the orphanage. Plant a tree. Adopt a stray dog or cat.

These are just some of the ways that you can create good merits. But in the part two of this post, allow me to share some of the traditional ways that Buddhists, especially Tibetan Buddhists do to increase merit.

Again to better understand the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey it will be good to read all the forecast. I know it is quite long but it is important for you to see the big picture.
