Chant – A – Mantra (10): Earth Store Bodhisattva’s Mantra for Eliminating Predicament Karma!

Published Pebrero 20, 2017 by jptan2012

Sometimes we find ourselves suffering from hardships with unknown causes. Sometimes, no matter how hard we work, money luck / wealth luck / financial luck seems to be quite elusive.

There are people who are beautiful, really nice, are kind hearted and good but real love seems to elude them.

Sometimes we all of a sudden find ourselves in a big mess without us understanding what really happened. Feng Shui of our house and office seems to be just fine but all of a sudden we are hit with a certain bad luck.

There are people who for some reason are just chased after by bad things.

This is because a little more than half of the unexplainable things that happens to us is caused by karma. These are the things that effect of the things that we did earlier in our lives and in our past lives and this is what we are paying for now.

If you are born blind, deaf, or if you were born in a bad family, bad place, or in poor family or poor country, that is karma.

We cannot escape karma, but sometimes we eliminate it or lessen it’s effect by reciting sutras, or by wearing some powerful amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel or the Surangama Mantra Amulet or chanting some mantras.

A lot of you are already familiar with some of the Karma cleansing mantras that I have shared in the past on this blog.

Today, allow me to share with you another mantra for eliminating predicament karma. And it is the very powerful eliminating predicament karma of Bodhisattva Earth Store or Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha.

Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva’s Mantra for Eliminating Predicament Karma is as follows:

AN BO LO MO LING TUO NING SUO PO HE

As you can see it’s very simple and it would be easy for you to memorize it. Chant it 3x a day for 108x each time. And you will soon see that things will start to get better for you because you are slowly eradicating or eliminating your predicament karma.

“Suffering” May Be a Form of Cleansing; A Miraculous Pay Raise After More than 19 Years; And Other Miracles: A Personal Vajrapani Ruel Miraculous Stories of A Reader!

Published Pebrero 15, 2017 by jptan2012

When I first started posting emails or sms of readers who shares their personal testimonies is really for me just to help show the authenticity of the stories. Little did I know that it will serve another purpose, and that is to be able to save them in writing the stories, because by posting their stories that they share, especially the ones who are willing to write in detail, it becomes a copy – paste thing for me. I can simply copy and paste what they have written. All I have to do is simply make an introduction or translate some parts.

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.

Marilou or Malou is a reader who got the Vajrapani Ruel last 2015, but before she got some miracles, she first experienced some changes in her life that seems a little bit more troublesome than before she got the Vajrapani Ruel. But, the truth is, sometimes we need to undergo some cleansing before we can receive the miracles that we deserve, and these cleansing can look like they are hardships or sufferings. We just need to look at the bigger picture to realize that these things may be actually for the good.

One reason also that I’m very excited to share Malou’s miraculous story is because she was actually wishing for something else, but she got a different miracle, and I’m happy that she noticed these things as miracle, because one of the most common mistake of people is expecting a certain miracle so much that they can’t see the miracle that they are already experiencing.

Malou is a hardworking Chinese woman. She has been working for somebody who didn’t give her a raise for 19 years! Anyway, I’m getting ahead of myself. Allow me to share with you the story of Malou in her own words. I just translated the parts in Filipino and are separated trough “ ( ) “ sign.

Here’s her story…

Hello….be forewarn…letter might be long…and boring…but I will try to make it short and simple.

Received your Varajapani Ruel last Dec 2015 and if I remember it correctly, the only wish I make was for my husband – to lessen his being hot headed, stubbornness and start to look for a job. Selfish ba ang wish ko (WAS MY WISH SELFISH)?  I know I didn’t specifically mention my problems with him. That’s the reason why I asked for Saragama amulet for him not for me thinking he needed much help more than me. =)

the first five months of 2016 after getting the Varajapani was very hard for me…my colleague goes AWOL leaving behind tons of backlogs work, our clearance from BIR and BOC expired resulting to no importation during these months and application is pending…imagine my workload became heavier, needed to hustle from office to BIR and back to finish other jobs…(I was left alone to handle from issuing invoices, taking orders and also bearing the harsh words of customer, bookkeeping, handling the renewal of license for BOC) on top of it…I got sick during those months and I cannot take any sick leave! ..not only to me but also to the whole family.  I try doing some chanting on the Varajapani Ruel but it didn’t work…and also on other mantra. but if you asked me did it lead me to think the amulet is fake; I would say a big NO.  I’m also a devout Catholic, I have the belief that if you asked something, there will be three answer for it….Yes, No and some other time. Also, too preoccupied already with problems at work and financial matters, didn’t bother to think why my prayers weren’t answered.

sorry, was expecting a big one kasi sa mga (BECAUSE THE ) personal stories you share puro (ALL) big time.  Year 2015 was not a good year for me as finding money is very hard and you know I am only the breadwinner…until the second half of 2016, I was surprised when my boss suddenly gave me half year bonus. I said WOW…ano kaya nakain ng boss ko(DID MY BOSS ATE SOMETHING)…in my nineteen yrs of working…naalala niya bigyan ako(HE REMEMBERED TO GIVE ME A RAISE). That time I was planning to file for resignation already since I told myself I invested so much time and effort here and I was not appreciated or well compensated. His only reason why I was not paid well he did not know my salary…its his wife whose handling it. Anyway, it didn’t stop there, I was again given a commission pay at the end of the year…I thought hanggang dyan lang ba ang expectation ko(MY EXPECTATIONS IS ONLY UP TO THAT POINT)…mahirap din ah(IT WAS DIFFICULT)…tuwing Christmas lang ako bibigyan(I’M ONLY GIVEN EVERY CHRISTMAS), di tuwing Christmas lang pala ako magbabayad utang(DOES THAT MEAN IT IS ONLY DURING CHRISTMAS THAT I CAN PAY MY DEBTS). =( Then came the big surprise, he announce he have given me a raise (finally)…after 19 years and six months counting working in this company.  Take note, I didn’t wish for it.

Remember I told you I have seen black spirits, well that have stopped also when I started wearing the Varajapani Ruel…you know, I kinda missed them he he he.

I almost forgot to add also, another good news, recently ko lang narealize(JUST REALIZED THIS RECENTLY), I have a very ke-po(pakialamerang) kapitbahay (A SNOOPY NEIGHBOR)who is very old around 80 yo also a practicing Buddhist daw…typical Chinese ama…well, we are not in good terms with her after what her son did – attacking my husband inside our house and infront of my son…siguro(APPROXIMATELY) around March or April yun – nagsumbong sa landlord naming kinukulam ko daw siya kaya siya nagkakasakit(HE REPORTED TO MY LANDLORD THAT I PRACTICE WITCHCRAFT ON HER THAT’S WHY SHE GET’S SICK) .  I have learned to play mantra songs in the morning, chanting some mantra and burning of kim/huo from temple. She keeps pestering my landlord to kick us out of the house.  Out of the blue, my landlord visited me and I was shocked when he confronted me if this matter will not stop he need to force us to live elsewhere, you can imagine how I felt that day. but deep inside I was already saying some prayers already…slowly I explain to him what I have been doing and I assure him its no witch craft as to what she is accusing. I was in tears already kasi (BECAUSE)I felt I was not treated fairly.  Buti na lang, naawa sa akin yun  other landlord(IT’S A GOOD THING THAT THE OTHER LANDLORD TOOK PITY ON ME) (yes, we have two landlord for two different units – magulo no(CONFUSING)…anyway, both of them are related naman.) The other landlord told me he just want the truth if I really did witchcraft at home and I told him the story about how I met a good friend (that’s you) who help me understand my Bazi chart and my husband and how practicing Buddhist ways is beneficial to our life…ayun, bigla naiba na ang topic naming and we were already discussing about different temple and Buddha…ending, we still live in the same house, the old lady still lives there, until now, spreading gossips about us doing witch craft…but no one believes in her including his landlord.

paxencia na ha, di ko ito naalala at nasabi sa iyo(APOLOGIES THAT I WAS NOT ABLE TO SHARE THIS WITH YOU SOONER)…I just remember this when my husband and I were talking regarding this matter and my husband nagyabang na malakas siya at matapang kaya takot na takot sila at ngayon di na sila nanggulo(JOKINGLY BOASTED THAT HE IS STRONG AND BRAVE THAT IS WHY THE OTHERS ARE SCARED AND DIDN’T BOTHER THEM ANYMORE)..or di kaya kesyo nakarma na daw sila(OR MAYBE THEY SUFFERED THEIR KARMA) bec of his religious belief or his devout (?) prayers to Buddha…duon ko naalala (THAT’S WHEN I REMEMBERED)what if its the amulet who is protecting us? so I asked my husband why didn’t it occur to you that it is the Varajapani Ruel who is protecting us. I strongly believe this is the miracle that we don’t often realize bec of our pride.

thank you very much for your guidance though we rarely talked to each other but thru your blog and writings, I have learned a lot of things about Buddhism, Mantra and many others.

regards,

malou

Feng Shui and Buddhist Love Spells and Love Rituals!

Published Pebrero 14, 2017 by jptan2012

I don’t know whether you have notice this but I don’t really write a lot about Feng Shui love rituals or Feng Shui love spells for that matter. The longest article I have written about the topic was written several years back, and quite surprisingly it is constantly one of the most read article of this blog.

However, since a lot of you have been sending me emails or messages asking questions about how to attract love or on how to reignite the flame of love, this is especially true for those who are already married.

Today, allow me to share with you some of the said rituals that have worked for some readers and acquaintances or friends. Thought of writing these now because it is the month of love and February 14 is Valentine’s Day!

I will avoid writing about those things that I have written in the past, but will instead focus on those that I have never talked about on this blog before.

FENG SHUI CANDLE LOVE RITUAL TO BRING LOVE INTO YOUR LIFE OR BRING BACK A LOST LOVE:

You will need four white votive candles, one pink votive candle, and one red votive candle. Preferably they should all be of the same size.

Do this ritual in a private place where you can have a small pool or a tub or Jacuzzi. If the tub or Jacuzzi is in the same room as the toilet, make sure to do a thorough physical and auric cleaning first by scrubbing the whole bath and toilet with salt water.

Place all the white votive candle on the side of the pool or a tub or Jacuzzi. Follow the compass directions East, West, North, and South. Light them starting from the East, followed by South, then West, then North. Position yourself on the center of the tub or small pool or Jacuzzi then light or as a trusted friend to light the pink and red candle first. Have a small container to hold them so that the wax doesn’t drip on your palms. Then visualize that the light from the pink candle (which should be on your left hand) goes clockwise mixing with the light from the red candle (which should be on your right hand). The light covers you going a clockwise direction. Then imagine that the light from the four white candles becomes a protective shield for you. Do this visualization for about 5 to 10 minutes for 7 days. Making sure that the fire from the candles melts the wax completely.

After each visualization you can put the red and pink candle aside still lighted.

I first learn of this ritual several years ago, when I was still trying to learn Feng Shui. A colleague wanted to do a love ritual that will help her get the love and a partner in life. She did this, and two months after she met a guy who will later on become her husband. She believes that it was this ritual that brought her husband in her life. They have now married for 17 years and have two daughters.

According to my Feng Shui teacher the same ritual can bring back a lost love.

INVOKING THE HELP OF BODHISATTVA KUAN YIN TO BRING BACK A LOST LOVE. A BUDDHIST LOVE RITUAL.kuan yin 5

This is perhaps one of the most powerful Buddhist love ritual that I have recommended. Several of my readers and friends have tried this and all attest to its power to bring back a lost love. However, this ritual only works if the lost love is only due to minor karmic predicament, and not ancestral problem or not a very strong flaw in the Bazi chart or Paht Chee chart of the couple. I noticed that this is mostly for married couples.

The ritual is quite simple. All you have to do is write your name and birthday and that of your husband or wife or partner in a small piece of plain white or plain yellow paper. Make sure that you use red ink.

Go to a temple or if you have an image of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva (Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon). Light three incense sticks and say: NAMO KUAN SHI YIN PUSA (3X), MAY I AND –name of your partner- RECEIVE THE BLESSING OF YOUR COMPASSION SO THAT OUR RELATIONSHIP WILL STRAIGTHEN OUT.

Then chant 108x (one full male) of OM MANI PADME HUM.

Then place the piece of paper at the foot of the image of Bodhisattva Guan Yin. Do this either in the temple or on your own altar. Doing it in the temple and placing the piece of paper at the foot of the image of Bodhisattva Guan Shi Yin in the temple is better and it will work faster, however, you have to make sure that the temple allows it.

I have recommended this several times to my readers, I would say there are about 19 people/couple who have tried it. Only one claims that it didn’t work for her, and I lost contact with another one.

THE 100 DAYS FENG SHUI LOVE RITUAL TO BRING LOVE INTO YOUR LIFE.

If you are single and wants to be in a relationship, you should get yourself a locket and on a small piece of plain yellow or plain white write your name with a red ink and your simple wish. Place it inside the locket and everyday of 100 days; place a fresh petal inside the locket. The petal should be pink or red in color. Place the petal in the morning before 7AM, and take it out the following morning replacing it with a fresh petal. Do it for 100 days. And you soon find love. I have several readers, who did this, and what is amazing about this is that not all of them found love of a partner; sometimes they just learned to love themselves.

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.

I’ve shared before about this Chinese woman who with the use of Surangama Mantra Amulet and some Feng Shui was able to find a husband for her daughter. The Surangama Mantra Amulet when worn is said to attract and activate your connection with the heavenly beings, so much so that they ‘hover’ you. This does not only become a protective amulet but it gives you charisma and charm also because it lightens your aura. My Guru Lama has a treasure trove of stories that I will share in the future posts about people who were able to find love or bring back a lost love when they started wearing the Surangama Mantra Amulet.

I would like to clarify though that the Surangama Mantra Amulet should not be considered as a love amulet, although it has that kind of effect.

TAP INTO THE POWER OF A TRADITIONAL SUTRA AMULET TO GET RID OF THE HINDRANCES THAT PREVENTS US FROM RECEIVING THE LOVE WE HAVE.

Recently, I wrote about the story of Grace who got separated with her husband, and along with receiving some financial blessing, also reunited with her husband because of the Traditional Sutra Amulet. There are different Traditional Sutra Amulet (TSA) and all has the power to shower us the blessing of acquiring our wishes be it financial or love or relationship luck. The one used by Grace was THE DIAMOND SUTRA, but for love luck that is experiencing some road blocks or hindrances, THE AVATAMSAKA SUTRA is the best, this works specially well for those two people who are in love but are victims of circumstances. For examples, parents are not in favor, third party, poverty, etc.

All you have to do is put your name and that of your partners name on piece of plain white or plain yellow paper. Use red ink. Then just place it inside the TSA. But as you can see, Grace need not do this. She just had it and it worked for her.

There are a lot of other ways to attract love or mend a lost love. In fact, my Guru Lama performs a special ritual for selected people to get two people together. But this ritual is only for couples that are definitely for each other but are broken apart by different circumstances. Remember the rituals mentioned above will only work if you are also meant for each other. It is not witchcraft to make people fall in love with you, but rather it simply eradicates the hindrances.

An Auspicious First Full Moon of the 2017 Lunar Year But We Need to Keep Ourselves Protected Because of the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse!

Published Pebrero 10, 2017 by jptan2012

Tomorrow Feb. 11, 2017 or the 15th day of first lunar month of the year 2017 (Year of the Fire Rooster) is an auspicious day except for people born under the sign of the Pig, which is actually their ‘conflict’ day.

Anyway, tomorrow Feb. 11, 2017 (15th day of the Lunar Month of 2017) is the first full – moon day of the lunar year. On that day, you can invoke the help of the God of Joy and God of Wealth. By making a simple ritual.

Before 9AM, you should face northeast, where the God of Joy is said to be on that day, light some incense and simply say a short wish. Then place the incense on a small incense burner. Then face south, which is where the God of Wealth is then light some incense, then say a short wish. Then place the incense on a small incense burner.

Note: Use red incense sticks. 3 sticks will do. The incense burner can be a small bowl filled with salt or rice. You can still use the rice for cooking but the salt should be thrown away.

Sincerely doing good things tomorrow will double the merit for good karma or blessings.

However, tomorrow we will also have the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse. This is an eclipse when the Earth’s shadow will block part of the sun’s ray from reaching the moon, thus making the moon slightly darken than usual. This is an inauspicious event, and in a way it serves as a warning to us that this year’s bad energies will come mostly from Earth, meaning those are manmade. However, the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse may also bring in some energy, so it is better to be indoors when it happens. This particular eclipse is not as bad as other eclipse in the sense that it doesn’t completely block out the borrowed yang energy (light) of the moon from the sun, but it will still have some bad effect, so those people who have a somewhat bad forecast this year should absolutely be indoors when this happens.

Note: Most of you, especially if you practice Feng Shui, you would know that any eclipse will have some negative effects because it is when the Yin wins over the Yang!

It is also best to keep your lights open and if possible wear your amulets. I for one, whenever there is an eclipse, I always make sure that I’m protected and have my Vajrapani Ruel with me.

The Miracles, The Reactions, and The Lessons!

Published Pebrero 7, 2017 by jptan2012

This past weeks has been a little overwhelming in terms of the emails and some text messages that I have received.

I would say that majority is positive, roughly about 90% and maybe about 10% are not.

I’m talking about the reader’s reaction on the following posts:

  1. THE PROOF OF THE PUDDING IS IN THE EATING AND SOMETIMES WE SHOULD REALIZE THAT SIMPLE CAN BE QUITE GOOD: SOME VAJRAPANI RUEL MIRACULOUS STORIES AND THE LESSON WE CAN LEARN FROM THE PEOPLE WHO EXPERIENCED THEM!
  2. MARITAL PROBLEM FIXED, FINANCIAL PROBLEM SOLVED WITH THE UNEXPECTED COMING IN OF A HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY / PROBLEM WITH BANK LOAN REVERSED: TWO PERSONAL TESTIMONIES OF TWO READERS WITH TWO DIFFFERENT SOURCES OF MIRACLES! – AND WHY DO I WRITE ABOUT MIRACULOUS PERSONAL TESTIMONIES?

A lot of you have been asking me why I have started writing double personal testimonies in a single post, and one reader (surprisingly) demanded why I was promoting the Traditional Sutra Amulets base on a post that includes a personal testimony about the power of mantra.

Again, I have started doing dual stories only because there are simply a lot of personal testimonies that can be shared but I wouldn’t want to writing about personal testimonies everyday that simply wouldn’t be fair to my readers. And second, the two stories that I shared in each of the article were written together because there is a purpose.

The first one is for us to learn to appreciate simple things. In fact, my reader Andrea L. who works as a real estate sales agent pointed out that there is no such thing as small miracles.

The second one, I thought it was clear that I wrote them together to point out that while amulets are powerful tool, it is not always very important to have them because as Evelyn proved mantras do work.

I believe a writer writes because he has something to say and he feels the need to say it. In a way, what is being written is a reflection of who the writer is. Now, a reader reacts base on how he perceives what was written, but how he or she reacts is a reflection of who the reader is. With this I’m really happy that most of you saw the point why were the articles written.

Myth Buster 44: It Is Better to Eat Tikoy or Nan Giao That was Given As A Gift!

Published Pebrero 6, 2017 by jptan2012

Photo uploaded from Google Images.

This is a post – Lunar New Year post. The past weeks, I think I have about 7 people ask me whether it is true that Tikoy or Nan Giao or Chinese New Year Sticky Rice Cake is better eaten if one received it as gift.

There is no truth to this belief.

To be honest I’m not sure whether where this belief originated but it seems to prevalent only amongst Filipinos. One reason I can think of is that they see their Chinese ‘brothers’ get so happy to receive Tikoy or Nan Giao(s). And some of them might have said that it is lucky to receive Nan Giao.

Well, in a way it’s true, but in only as much as it is lucky to receive any gift from a person, because the act of giving comes with some good chi.

‘Welcome the Spring Season’ Ritual to Invite Wealth Luck!

Published Pebrero 2, 2017 by jptan2012

Today my Guru Lama wants me to share with you a simple but important ritual to welcome the spring season that will greatly enhance your wealth luck. The Huan Ing Chun Tien ritual is a ritual that can be done only in years that the Lunar New Year happens before Spring comes in, which is the case for this year.

The first thing you should do is found out your Chinese birthday / Lunar birthday.

To do this you can log on to the Chinese Gender Chart website (please just click on the link and it will land you on the page of Calendar converter) or Hong Kong Observatory site (again just click on the link). Then check your corresponding birthdate. For the Chinese Gender Chart site you will have to input your birthdate. With the other one you have to select the year and it will open a pdf form and you will just check their chart.

PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS POSSIBLE FOR PEOPLE BORN IN JANUARY TO EARLY FEBRUARY TO HAVE THEIR YEAR OF BIRTH CHANGED INTO THE PREVIOUS YEAR. THIS IS BECAUSE LUNAR CALENDAR IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE DELAYED A FEW MONTHS.

After getting your lunar birthdate, count your SHENG HAO. You do this by adding all the corresponding number of your birthdate until you get one digit.

  • For example your lunar birthdate is 11 (Month) – 29 (Day) – 1992 (Year).
  • Take the month first 1 + 1 = 2.
  • Then the day 2 + 9 = 11 (because you ended up with a 2 digit add it up again until you get a single digit so 1 +1 = 2).
  • Then the year 1 + 9 + 9 + 2 = 21 (again you get two digits so add it up again until you get a single digit so 2 +1 = 3.
  • Then use the month digit and multiply it with the day digit so 2 x 2 = 4.
  • Then add the year digit add to the combined single digit of the month and day to the year digit so 4 + 3 = 7. This becomes your Sheng Hao. If you come up with a two digit add it again so you get a single digit.

 

Then prepare the following things that you will need:

  1. Bouquet of flowers (no thorns). If using roses make sure that all the thorns are taken out.
  2. Three Kinds of Fruit. I suggest the following: 5 pieces Apple, 5 pieces Oranges, 1 piece of Pineapple / 1 piece of Pomelo / 1 bunch of Grapes.
  3. Red and Green Shirt.
  4. Prepare a big Ang Pao (Red Envelope) with a single bill. Any amount will do. It can be a one-dollar bill. Here in the Philippines it can be one twenty – peso bill. Preferably put a new bill, something that is still crisp.
  5. Also put inside the Ang Pao one piece about 2×2 red paper, 2×2 green paper and 2×2 yellow paper.
  6. If your Sheng Hao is odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) prepare three RED votive candles for offering. If your Sheng Hao is an even number (2, 4, 6, 8) prepare one RED votive candle for offering. Make sure it is a small glass so that the wax wouldn’t drip on the table.
  7. Small bottled water corresponding to the number of your Sheng Hao.

 

On Feb. 4, 2017 before 9 in the morning. Go to the temple wearing a red shirt (if your Sheng Hao is odd number) or green shirt (if your Sheng Hao is even number). Bring the other shirt with you as well as all the things that you prepared.

Go to a Buddhist temple. Place the fruits and flowers on the table before the image of Buddha or a Bodhisattva.

In the same manner, place the bottled water, all the Ang Pao(s), the extra shirt and the votive candles on the table.

Then light 3 incense sticks. Kneel in front of the image and say: I REQUEST ALL THE BUDDHAS AND BODHISATTVAS TO PLEASE BRING ME THE BLESSING OF   AN ABUNDANT SPRING AND AN ABUNDANT YEAR.

Then put the incense sticks on the incense burner.

Then if the temple will allow you to light and leave the votive candle light the candles.

Then bow to the image 3x.

Then get the Ang Pao, the bottled waters and the shirt. Leave the flowers and fruit.

If the temple doesn’t allow lighting of votive candles inside, then get the candles also.

When you get to the office or home. Take off the shirt you’re wearing and then wear the other shirt. Light the votive candles.

And throughout the day give the Ang Pao and bottled water to people around you. Any person can receive your Ang Pao and bottled water, but it is better to choose people who have serve you or worked with you or somehow had been a blessing to you the past years.

All the signs with the exception of the Rat can do this ritual. The rat can’t do this because of a conflict in element formation of the bazi chart / paht chee chart of the day.

This is highly recommended for people born under the sign of the Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Rooster, and Dog. For the 56 – year – old who has weak wealth luck this year, this is going to be a good ritual to do to help enhance your wealth luck.
