One of the most common questions I usually get is whether Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart of a person determines the luck or life of person as if it is set in stone.
After more than 700 articles, it is quite difficult to determine whether this is something that I have written or even simply mentioned before. But I believe it is worth writing about it now given that this is the most common question that I received from my readers and even friends.
The Bazi or Paht Chee is determined by getting the exact birthdate of a person, from it people who knows how to compute a Bazi will be able to determine what kind of life a person has or will have. Please note though that being familiar with Feng Shui doesn’t necessarily mean that one is also familiar with the Paht Chee, it is something much more difficult to learn. But for one to be able to do personal Feng Shui really well, one has to analyze the Bazi of a person.
One of the earliest article that I have written about is clarifying that our luck consists of mainly three things, and they are: HEAVEN’S LUCK, EARTH’S LUCK, and MAN’S LUCK.
Heaven’s Luck is basically determined by our birthdate or Paht Chee. This is who are our parents, siblings, where we are born, when we are born, personality and character. This is something that is basically what life has thrown to us. This is also basically karma.
Earth’s Luck is basically Feng Shui.
Man’s Luck is basically what we do with what is thrown to us. This is us. How we handle things, how we work things out, how we react to things.
If you’ll notice, Man’s Luck is in a way still dependent on Heaven’s Luck in a way that our personality is determined by Heaven’s Luck. But at the same time, these are the things that we can control. For example, you can be born in a poor family, but if you strive hard you might have a better life. True it might be more difficult for you but it certainly is not impossible.
Sometimes, these lucks mix. For example, I always say that the first line of defense is maintaining a positive outlook in life. When we consciously do that, that is man’s luck, the effect is Earth’s Luck.
Feng Shui is Earth’s Luck that needless to say also has an effect on Man’s Luck.
Displaying an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deities or Gods is made with a conscious effort by man, so in a way it is Man’s Luck. Then using as a cure it becomes Earth’s Luck but the help that comes in is basically Heaven’s Luck.
Using an amulet is also basically a combination of all three, although is predominantly Heaven’s Luck followed by Earth’s Luck.
Going back to the question whether a Bazi or Paht Chee is set in stone, and using the above argument, it becomes clear that it is not. However, things indicated in the Bazi or Paht Chee is never linear. It is not about a single path. There is one clear major path, but good Feng Shui students will tell you that there are minor paths.
Allow me to share with you the story about the mother of a reader. When I checked the chart of the mother, it shows that she will have an accident that may kill her. Most likely, it is man made accident, something violent and caused by a person with ill intent.
It is a strong indication in the chart meaning it is something that is surely will happen. This was confirmed both by my Feng Shui teacher and my Guru Lama. As a remedy, my reader got a Vajrapani Ruel and a gold Kalachakra pendant for her. Told them to be ready also because with the help of Feng Shui teacher we were able to narrow down the possible to within two weeks of the month September in 2015.
My reader’s mom, during daytime is usually left at home by herself. One day, her grandchild’s school was suspended, so it was an unusual day because somebody was with her in the house. This was in September. While the grandchild was playing he saw a man, or two men (he can’t be sure) (the grandchild was only 8 years old at that time) trying to break in to their house. Frightened he screamed for her grandma. Her grandma in a rush to go to her grandchild fell on the stairs and broke her leg.
What was indicated in her Bazi didn’t happen, at least not to the level it was indicated because with the Kalachakra and the Vajrapani Ruel, used as an Earth’s Luck interfere. The grandmother or mother of my reader still had to go through some accident, but not serious enough as indicated in her chart because she was protected.
Another story is about a man who according to his Bazi, which was reviewed by several Feng Shui masters – not less than 7 of them, indicates that he will grow up poor and as a meek employee all throughout his life, meaning he will never become a person of significance in the corporate world. Because of this his parents and later the guy himself did everything to turn this around. His parents started with Feng Shui (Earth’s Luck) and continuously plead the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas (Heaven’s Luck), and then when the man grew up, he continued to do both plus he worked really hard. Now the man lives a comfortable life.
So the answer is Bazi or Paht Chee is never linear.
