In my previous post, I talked about the forecast for the 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep, mainly focusing on the Bazi or Paht Chee with the annual Flying Stars and 24 Mountain Stars. There I talked about the Holy Trinity of Protection for the year, which are the images of Kuan Yin, Kuan Kong and a Kalachakra.

In all my forecast I start with the East, but I’d like to change that a little this time. Let’s start with the center because this is quite important.


 

This is the second of three series of forecast:

 

 

 


 

The Center has the #3 Flying Star, which is also, called the ARGUMENTATIVE STAR, because of this, the year is then ruled by this particular star. The 3# Flying Star’s element is also wood, and as we know, if coupled with the Bazi reading of the year which is largely ruled by the Wood element it thus then make the ruling star a very strong one. Its natural strength is enhanced and doubled.

Effects: The Flying Star #3 also known, as the Argumentative Star is a star that causes relationship problem, numerous bickering, litigation problems, quarrels and problems/conflicts with people in authority. This year it will greatly affect all of us. And it is further doubled if your office or room is in the center of the house, building, establishment, etc. Furthermore, as mentioned in the earlier post, there’s a destructive pillar in this year’s Paht Chee chart, namely the word element destroying the earth element this further strengthens the quarrelsome nature of the star. If not controlled and suppressed, this star will bring about tremendous with your family and officemates or business partners. It can also cause a lot of unnecessary legal issues. This star has to be suppressed.

It also has to be noted for this year, that all of us are affected by this star, but the most affected are the animal signs whose intrinsic element is earth and people whose self – element is earth are the most affected.

Feng Shui Cure: Normally the best cures for this star are either the Ksitigarbha Fireball or the Nine – Ring Sword of Kuan Kong. The image of Kuan Kong is also a very good cure for this star. People affected by this star can wear or carry an image of the cures. The Maitreya Buddha also known as the Happy Fat Buddha is also a great help. These are what I normally recommend. However, for this year, as mentioned in my previous post, we will all need the Holy Trinity of Protection for 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep. The said Holy Trinity of Protection are Kuan Kong, which will suppressed the said star, Kalachakra for the peripheral effect, and Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra (you can carry the Heart Sutra separately) to create harmony. It is not enough for us to simply suppress and protect ourselves from the effects of the said star, we must actively create harmony. Inviting the said images in your home, and wearing their images as a pendant will protect us from the terrible effects of the said #3 Argumentative Flying Star. For those who have the Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant, all you need is to get an image of Kuan Yin and a Heart Sutra that you can carry around.

In wearing a Kuan Kong pendant remember to look for one that has a fierce face and better to get them in gold or something that has a red face.

The Kalachakra symbol is one of the most powerful protection symbol in Buddhism. It actually consists of ten syllable mantra, with it symbolic script condensed into one. The mantra itself is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, the mantra of the Kalachakra is never chanted without the mantra OM AH HUM. Making the complete mantra of Kalachakra - OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. This is the reason why I decided to put the symbolic script of the mantra OM AH HUM on top of the Kalachakra symbol. As mentioned this is a very powerful protection symbol and can be likened to the Scapular of the Catholics. In fact, you'll seldom see a Tibetan Monk with wearing the symbol of the Kalachakra on their body. It may be hidden but most likely they have it somewhere on their body. But you'll never see them have the symbolic scripts tattooed because it is considered extremely bad luck to have a mantra tattooed on your body.

If you wish to wear or invite ‘non – religious’ images for this star, you can use the Ksitigarbha Fireball or Nine – Ringed Sword with apple, and Kalachakra. Kalachakra is a religious image but it doesn’t bear the image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva.

The Ksitigarbha Fireball is a pearl on the hand of  Ksitigarbha Buddha that fires up when there are negative energies.

THE EAST HAS THE #1 FLYING STAR CALLED WHITE VICTORY STAR

Effects: This star brings luck to your endeavors. It helps ensure your success. This year the White Victory Star also ensures that people whose main door faces the east will have wondrous victory luck.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Put in your bedroom or carry or wear one of the following images – Victory Banner, Lung – Ta or Wind Horse, Kuan Kong.

THE SOUTHEAST HAS THE #2 FLYING STAR CALLED ILLNESS STAR

Effects: As the name implies, this star causes illness and to some extent it can be fatal or terminal. Sometime, this star can also cause some accidents that may make you invalid for a long time if not permanently. However, while it will still affect the eldest daughter of the family, this year it is a weak star.

Feng Shui Cure: The primary cure for the ILLNESS STAR is the Medicine Buddha. Wear an image of the Medicine Buddha as pendant or wear the symbolic script of the mantra of the Medicine Buddha or wear a Medicine Buddha prayer wheel to help counter the ill effects of the said star. Chanting the mantra of the Medicine Buddha is also a great way to manage the said star. Secondary cure is Wulou (also spelled as Wu Lou) or Holy Gourd. Please note that it is considered very disrespectful if you put an image of the Medicine Buddha in your room, so in this case one can put the Holy Gourd.

THE SOUTH HAS THE #7 FLYING STAR ALSO CALLED THE VIOLENT STAR

Effects: The star brings hostility and loss through robbery, theft, or even manipulation.

Feng Shui Cure: One of the following items – Image of Sun Wukong (aka Monkey God), Image of Kuan Kong (also known as Kuan Ti, Guan Ti, Kuan Te Ya, Guan Te Ya, Guan Gong), Image Elephant with Rhinoceros. For people who are staying on this side have the house or office, or for people born under the sign of the horse, it is advisable to wear an image of Sun Wukong, Kuan Kong, or a Mantra Pendant. The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT that has the image of THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN – SUN WUKONG, and the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT that has the image of Kuan Kong are also advisable.

Sun Wukong aka Monkey God aka Pilgrim aka 'Great Sage, Equal to Heaven' is a very powerful wealth and protector god. He is one of the few deities worshipped both in Taoism (also spelled as Daoism) and Buddhism.

THE SOUTHWEST HAS THE #9 FLYING STAR CALLED THE MULTIPLYING AND FUTURE PROSPERITY STAR AND IT IS JOINED BY THE TAIS SUEY GOD OF THE YEAR

Effects: Technically speaking, this is neither a good or bad star. The power of this star is to let you reap whatever you sow. This star basically multiplies whatever karma you accumulate. If you do more good things you’ll have more good luck in the future, but if you continue to do a lot of bad things, you multiply your negative karma as well.

Feng Shui Cure: Last year, I didn’t put any enhancer or cure recommendations because I want people to be more conscious about what they do. However, a reader told me that there are times that we simply, without intending to be bad, create some things that earn us negative karma. For this I highly recommend either the image of the Medicine Buddha or the symbolic script of the mantra OM AH HUM or OM HANU PASHA BARA HE YE SOHA both of which are on the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

However, it should be noted that this year, the Tai Suey God is also in the South. It has to be noted that Tai Suey is not part of the Flying Star but we need to always take this into consideration because offending the Tai Suey will create a lot of bad luck.

The Taoists, where most of how we do Feng Shui originated, believes that a certain God called Tai Suey or Tai Sui or Grand Duke in English rules a year. This year 2015, Tai Sui of the year is Great General Yang Xian. However, you have to understand a little about Taoist Gods for you to be able to understand why we have to be careful in dealing with the Tai Suey.

Great General Yang Xian is the 2015 Tai Sui God.

Great General Yang Xian is the 2015 Tai Sui God.

Taoist Gods are like humans with supernatural powers. They have magical and godly powers but they may also have human temperament and they also have characters and personalities. Meaning, they can get angry with our acts, they can be disturbed and get angry with us and thus render a punishment to us, or maybe the simple act of them getting irritated with us might create some misfortune. However, they can also be appease and happy with us and render us some good blessings, or again, the simple act of the Tai Suey getting happy with us will create some good fortune.

To help ensure that Tai Suey is happy with us always carry an image of the Pi Yao or Pi Xiu. This celestial animal will help appease the Grand Duke or Tai Suey. Another image that can help manage the Tai Suey God is to carry, display or wear an image of the Wind Horse or Lung Ta. People born in the year of the Sheep and Ox are directly affected by the Tai Suey God (also spelled as Tai Sui, Tai Sue) but those born under the sign of the horse, monkey, tiger and rat are also indirectly afflicted by way of side of afflictions. should have either the Piyao or Lung – Ta. Also, if your door faces SouthWest, or if your bedroom and office is in the SouthWest you should also put the image of the Piyao or Lung Ta or Windhorse. People who are occupying the SouthWest also should wear or carry the image of the Piyao or Lung Ta. Also one of the best protections for the Tai Suey is an image of the Goddess of the North Star or Dou Mu Yuan Jun, thus having her image is also highly advisable.

Always get a Pi Yao pendant that has an active stance.

Dou Mu Yuan Jun or Goddess of the North Star is a powerful Deity to counter the effects of Tai Suey. She is said to be the creator of all the Tai Suey Gods does has the power to rule or control over them.

THE WEST HAS THE #5 FLYING STAR OR THE DREADED FIVE YELLOW STAR AND THE THREE KILLINGS

Effects: The 5 – Yellow Star is the worst of all negative stars! It’s the most dreaded star. It is said to bring 5 different kinds of misfortunes!

Feng Shui Cure: AGAIN! AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE MOVE OUT FROM THIS SECTION OR DON’T USE THIS SECTION. You can also use the Five Element Pagoda (5 – Element Pagoda), or the Kalachakra. For people who stays in this section of the house or building and if you can’t move out of this sector, it is very important that you wear either the Kalachakra or the Five Element Pagoda. Furthermore, people born in the year of the Rooster should also ensure that they wear either the Five Element Pagoda or the Kalachakra.

This year the Three Killings also found its way to the West, thus making a double whammy on this sector. Unlike the Tai Suey or the Five Yellow Star, which we must avoid, the 3 – Killings is something that we must confront. Meaning, the best way to deal with it is to face the Three Killings and not turn our back against it. If the 3 Killings is not confronted then it can wreak three kinds of misfortunes to a person. The three misfortunes are accident, financial loss, and illness. However, since it’s with the #5 Star confronting it might be bad for us.

So a good way of dealing with the Three Killings is to place the image of the Three Celestial Guardians or images of three different Buddha, Bodhisattva, Deity or Immortal in the West section of the room, house, office, and building. Those who are staying in the West section of their house, office, building, or room must wear an image of the Three Celestial Guardians or images of three different Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Deities or Immortals.

The Three Celestial Guardians are the Fu Dog, Chi Lin (also spelled as Qi Lin or Chilin or Chi Lin) and Piyao (also spelled or called Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu).

Three Celestial Guardinas consists of the Fu Dog, Pi Yao (Piyao), and Chi Lin (Chilin).

THE NORTHWEST HAS THE #4 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE SCHOLASTIC AND ROMANCE STAR

Effects: Romance luck is heightened if your room is on this side of the house. For single people, you might have the possibility of finding love. For partnered people, you might find your love getting more ‘fragrant’. However, for married couple the effect might be two fold. First, you might find yourself loving each other more deeply, but there might also be the possibility of a third party getting involved. It is also called Scholastic Star because it also has a good effect on the scholastic pursuits of a person. Meaning, students may become more studious, and professionals might find that it’s easier to understand documents.

Feng Shui Enhancer: For single person you can put a Rose Quartz Mandarin Ducks on your bedside. For married couple, you can hang the Double Happiness on your headboard. To safeguard yourself from a third party, tie an Amethyst Geode with Red String on the foot of your bed or ask your partner to wear a gold image of Kuan Kong. You can also use the power of Green Tara to ensure that this star works for the positive only.

THE NORTH HAS THE #8 FLYING STAR CALLED WEALTH STAR

(Thank you to the one who called my attention for the typo.)

Effects: This star is a very good star. It gives you abundance and to some a ‘bottomless’ pocket filled with money. This star is not just about money wealth but this is also for over – all abundance. People born under the sign of Rat, Ox, and Pig or Boar will benefit from this star.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Faux gold Coins or Bars or Ingots should be place on this sector. Wear an image of a Wealth Deity like the Maitreya Buddha, Kuan Kong, or Sun Wukong.

Faux Gold Coins, Ingots, and Bars are available in Ongpin. If you can't find one please contact me at sanaakosirickylee@gmail.com

THE NORTHEAST HAS THE #6 FLYING STAR CALLED HEAVEN’S BLESSINGS AND MENTOR STAR

Effects: This star helps set the ‘tone’ of the year for people whose office, or room is in the NE side of the house or building. Meaning, if you continuously do more good the more blessed you’re going to be. This also means that if you’re Chinese Animal Zodiac is not so good, you will have help from Heaven (Buddha, Bodhisattvas, Deities, Immortals, or Saints). This also means that you’ll be lucky enough to have people who will help you achieve your goal.

Feng Shui Enhancers: In your room or office put some crystal ball or 6 White Jade tied with a red string. People who are staying in this sector and people born in the year of the Tiger and Ox will do well if they invite an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity or Immortal by wearing their image as a pendant. I personally suggest one of the following: Kuan Kong, Avalokitesvara aka Kuan Yin, Maitreya Buddha aka Happy Fat Buddha, Shakyamuni Buddha, Medicine Buddha, Yellow Dzambhala, Green Tara.Kuan Yin

There are several different forms or manifestations of Dzambhala (also spelled as Jambala or Dzambala). Dzambala is a Buddhism Wealth God. The one in the picture is the most common or most famous manifestation of Dzambhala which is the Yellow Dzambhala.

2015 Year of the Wood Sheep Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi, Flying Stars, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: A Balanced Year Filled with Wealth and Resources But May Be Ruled By Arguments and Fighting (Part 1)

The 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep (also called as Goat or rarely Lamb) doesn’t usher in until Feb. 19, 2015, but as early as now people are already clamoring for a forecast. So here is the first part of my analysis base on the year bazi or paht chee, flying stars and 24 mountain stars formula.

The bazi or Paht Chee of the year of the Wood Sheep (2015) is a balanced chart, meaning it has all the 5 elements: wood (3), earth (2), water (1), metal (1), and fire (1).


 

This is the first of three series.

 


 

 

Let us focus on the Wood element first because it has the highest number of appearance on the chart that is not counting the hidden elements. Wood, represents wealth this year, and I’m really happy that the number 3 is just perfect because would it have been 4 and 5 it might mean that we will all be aspiring for wealth that is totally unattainable, so 3 is just right. Having said this, it is clear that 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep presents a lot of wealth luck potential for all of us. Unlike in 2014 Year of the Wood Horse, wherein wealth is largely concentrated on the first half of the year; this year’s wealth luck is spread throughout the year. However, much of our wealth and resources luck has been depleted this year, it might take us awhile to actually feel the wealth potential of 2015. It has to go through some sort of regeneration. This only mean that the last half of the year is going to be better than the first half, or at most we will start to feel the wealth luck by the 4th lunar month of the 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep. The hidden element shows two more fire, and again this serves to contribute to our wealth luck, what does this mean, even if you don’t have a clear way of making money, if you just work hard you’re sure to get it. Kuan KongTo further enhance this wealth luck you can invite the image of Kuan Kong or Sun Wukong or Maitreya Buddha (Happy Buddha) to your home, wearing their images, as a pendant is also really good. Aside from their images you can also wear either a pendant of the three – legged toad.

Next we have two earth elements, again not counting the hidden elements, and for this year the earth element represents resources. Again, as you can see this is a very good sign because this shows that we won’t lack for personal and professional resources. This totally makes sense because resources will also lead us to wealth luck, but this also mean that even if we only a small share of resources it will still lead to great wealth. As you can see the coming year, as shown on its bazi or Paht Chee chart is showing a lot of potential for us. The hidden element shows 2 more earth elements, and this translate in the fact that when one humble oneself, and one perseveres, one will surely find the resources that they need. To enhance this year’s earth element so that you can fully tap into the luck that it brings, it is also advisable to wear any kind of gemstone. One will do and because I believe that all of us regardless of your Basket of Elements should have a jade, then let it be jade.

I'm a firm believer that everybody should have at least one jade. That is regardless of your animal sign and basket of elements.

I’m a firm believer that everybody should have at least one jade. That is regardless of your animal sign and basket of elements.

If you’re familiar with Bazi or Paht Chee reading and with the relationships of the elements, you’ll notice that there is destructive pillar in the chart. I’m referring to the Wood element and the Earth element. This might mean that there might be significantly destructive earthquakes happening next year, especially in the first half of the year. Or it could also mean any kind of calamity that has something to do with earth or agriculture. It could also mean potential landslides brought about the storm. Again, what I write here are not fortunetelling, these are base on calculations from the year’s Bazi and my own analysis. A lot of human factor is involved so I can be wrong. For example, although, as pointed out by a reader, I was able to accurately ‘predicted’ (for the lack of word) the Yolanda (Typhoon Haiyan) crisis last 2013 down to the point as to where it might happen, I was not able to accurately analyze that there is going to be another Super Typhoon hitting the Philippines this 2014. Although, I did say that while this year is going to be really warm, strong rains is also going to happen. While my analysis was correct, I was not able to predict the Super Typhoon Ruby or Hagupit. But in hindsight, it should have been obvious but human factor; specifically my emotions disrupted the process in having a very good analysis because my emotions and mind is unable to conceive of another super typhoon hitting us.

Going back to the analysis, it should be mentioned that this destructive pillar also needs to symbolically happen because in Taoism wood destroying earth means there is a release of wealth that’s going to transpire. Figuratively, it needs to be released from its hiding place, which is believed to be deep with the earth or mountains. So again this destructive pillar is another indication that wealth luck is going to be good. And again, wood represents wealth this year, and it shows that wood is destroying earth, so again it means that if you use your resources wealth is going to come. That’s another good analysis of the chart.

There is one element of water in the chart, and the hidden element shows no other water. Water, which represents intelligence in the 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep, simply shows that this year once intelligence is not going to be the main factor in attaining success and luck this year.

There is also one metal element found in the chart. And again this is good news because this year the metal element represents either friends or foe, it represents the self – element of the year, and if this high it will mean that it’s going to be a very competitive year, and having a low metal element means it’s going to be a year that will make those who are friendlier and not very maliciously competitive, and whose approach are not aggressive more successful. This shouldn’t be confused on the fact that this is going to be peaceful friendly year, because this year’s flying chart is ruled by #3 star, a star that shows that there will be a lot of fighting and quarrelling, this is not contradictory with each other, but more on this later.

Lastly, there is a single fire element, which is enhanced by 2 hidden fire elements, which indicates power and authority. This is good because this means that those in power or those who have authority will tend to be more helpful towards who don’t have it, but more than that, all of us will enjoy some sort of power and authority. The difference will come on how we use it. This means all of us will have some kind of leverage.

Earlier on this post, I mentioned of the destructive pillars. But the good news is there are also productive pillars. I will not go into details what are these hidden elements but I would like to state that this would manifest in enabling stability. This will manifest more in one’s career and social position.

And here’s another piece of good news for this year, this year we also have the Star of the Powerful Mentors and this manifest in the form of elderly or influential people extending help. To attract and enhance the Star of Powerful Mentor, it is beneficial to wear an image either of Amitabha Buddha, Kuan Kong/Sangharama Bodhisattva or Lu Dongbin.

Unfortunately, also base on the flying star, the year ruled by the #3 flying star that is also known as the Argumentative Star. This star brings about a lot of fighting and arguments. There will be possible lawsuits and to top it off, there might be violence brought about this star. To subdue this star, all of us must wear either the image of Kuan Kong or Ksitigarbha’s Fireball. However, to continue to protect oneself from the peripheral effect of this star, one can wear a Kalachakra made of gold or jade. Lastly, it is not enough to subdue and protect oneself from the peripheral effects of this star, it is also important to create harmony, and we can do this by wearing an image of Kuan Yin while carrying the Heart Sutra. If you can get the Kuan Yin with the Heart Sutra at the back, all the better. For those who have the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, all you need is to get an image of Kuan Yin, because the pendant already has the image of Kuan Kong and the Kalachakra. I consider Kuan Yin, Kuan Kong, and the Kalachakra as the holy trinity of protection of the year.

An analysis of the 24 Mountain Stars also indicates a generally positive year. There are so much more positive stars than negative ones. One of these stars that are quite strong is the Big Auspicious star, and almost all animal signs is actually going to feel this star. Again, to further enhance this star is recommended that you wear an image either of Kuan Kong, Sun Wukong, Yellow Dzambhala, White Dzambhala or Maitreya Buddha.

Is Feng Shui Charms Essential for a Better Future?

Published December 10, 2014 by jptan2012

faith-consistency-and-hard-work-4The desire to have a better and a life that’s more comfortable is maybe the prominent reason why Feng Shui is enjoying so much popularity these days. As you well know I’m a staunch believer of Feng Shui and Buddhism and Taoism, primarily because I also aspire for a better and healthy and wealthy life, not to mention a peaceful one. And my approximately 20 years of formal and structured experience with Feng Shui add to the practically my whole lifetime of exposure to Feng Shui that lead me to believe that Feng Shui is indeed real. It is not superstitious belief, and that it really works.

A lot of people believe that practicing Feng Shui is essential for one to have a better and a more comfortable life. I for one almost believes this thus I wear my Feng Shui charms and even created the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, that became a hit with my readers. But you’ll noticed that I said almost, because at the end of the day, just when I start to think that Feng Shui is the main ingredient for these aspirations, I’m presented with a story that tells me otherwise

Mang Arnel is a driver who hit a jackpot when his former boss asked me to worked on a project. He ends brokering a certain project, which earned him almost 2 million Philippine pesos. He decided to invest his money buy buying a car that he can turn into a taxi and he also opened up a hardware shop. Eventually, his lone taxi gave birth to two more and a passenger jeepney. His children all finished school and he were on his way to a comfortable life, then Ondoy strike! All of a sudden, all his cars, his business were ruined and he was left with nothing!

Mang Arnel, became bitter and stopped working and never went out of his house. He is a Catholic but his faith waivered and started blaming God. Until, he became a ‘useless’ person. His wife and children would always tell him that they should be thankful that they still have their house and that they’re still together. However, for 2 years this would seem to fall on deaf ears. Until, his wife stood her ground and told him to shape up and work or they should just separate. This prompted Mang Arnel to realize that he should get back to his old self and work hard again to get all the comfort that he wants.

He started working again, and within 3 years he was able to save up enough money to buy his own taxi. He still on the road to his ultimate success but his outlook in life changed everything and made him see a good future again. He even started believing in God again.

His story should remind all of us the Feng Shui charms are just tool to help us get on the road of a better future. It is like a push, a propeller. In the end, it is still hard work and faith in our God that is truly essential.

Planting Flowers In Front of the House Helps Deflect Bad Chi!

Singapore is such a small place that very few people have their own stand-alone house. And a lot of times, those who have their own house become unintentional target for the jealous evil eye. I say unintentional targets because people who envy them unintentionally send out negative chi to them. houseflowers
However, there is a simple cure for this and that is you only need to plant flowers in front of your house. Aside from creating good chi and deflect negative chi caused by the evil eye because of jealousy, this also serves as a distraction wherein people will notice first and admire the beauty of the flowers before admiring the house which may seem extravagant for a country that has very limited space.
Of course, while this is a common practice in Singapore, this is a Feng Shui cure that is applicable to all of us. houseflowers3

Namtso Salt: A Rare Buddhist Artisan Salt Used for Protection from Negative Energy and for Enhancing Wealth Luck!

Published November 29, 2014 by jptan2012

Despite being one of the largest salt-water lakes in Asia, Namtso is still relatively an unknown name to most people. But from this unknown lake comes one of the rarest Buddhist artisan salts that are good in combating and protecting us from negative chi and also helps generate wealth luck.
Namtso Lake is more popularly known as the ‘Heavenly Lake’ and is considered as the third holiest lake in Tibet. It is also the largest salt-water lake in Tibet.
Before China invaded Tibet, Namtso Lake is one of the most popular pilgrimage sites; inspite of it’s relatively being inaccessible. The famous Tashi Dor monastery is located at the southeastern corner of the lake. Now it has simply become a tourist spot because the Chinese government has disallowed that it be considered a pilgrimage and holy site. namsto.4
I’ve never been to Namtso Lake, but according to my Guru Lama, Namtso Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes one can ever see. Its water is turquoise in color giving it a look of an ocean. It is believed that Namtso Lake has been an apparition site of various Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, namely, Avalokitesvara (Kuan Yin in her original form), White Dzambhala, Medicine Buddha. Furthermore, it is said the Guru Rinpoche himself has declared the lake to be holy.
There is no clear history as to when it started but Namtso Lake being a holy salt-water lake, gave rise to one of the most powerful salt in combatting negative energy and helping to enhance wealth luck.
Namtso Salt is a whole round chunk of salt as big as a small baby’s head. It is usually process in a clay pot and is considered as one of the purest salt. Placing the Namtso salt in a room will protect the room from negative chi. It is extremely advisable for one to use Namtso Salt if one doesn’t know whether a Feng Shui of the room is good or bad. Furthermore, a Namtso Salt that has been blessed by a monk can drive away evil spirits.
Aside from driving away evil spirits and protecting us from negative chi, Namtso Salt placed on the center table of the living room and on the dining table acts as a very potent wealth enhancer. According to my Guru Lama, he personally witnessed this when a 2nd generation Tibetan refugee migrated to Singapore to seek for greener pastures. However, after 2 years of staying in Singapore he was unable to improve his life and has not been able to send a single centavo to his family in India. Worst, he is not even able to send letters because he was so poor that he doesn’t have money for postage and of course, emails is out of the question. Out of frustration, he seeks out the help of a monk who happens to be a student of my Guru Lama. This particular young monk then brought his story to the attention of my Guru Lama. My Guru Lama then decided to do a special puja for him, but since he has a small chunk of Namtso Salt with him, he decided to bless it and gave it to the Tibetan refugee. His luck then has since has a great turn around, it has been 10 years since it happened, and he has now went back home to India where he now has his won business. He got his capital in Singapore and has largely recognized that his luck started to change for good after he received the Namtso Salt.
Making the Namtso Salt is a very tedious process, and takes months before one is finally available.
First, Buddhist monks usually gathered fallen woods from the forest. They will the soak the woods in the Namtso Lake for 6 months. After 6 months, they will then chop the woods into smaller chunks and dry them out under the sun. The process usually takes up to 5 days. Then they will slowly burn the said wood, once the wood is burnt into ashes they will then put more Namtso Lake salt water and put it into clay pots. That’s when they’ll cook the salt. The salt is cooked once the clay pots broke. namtso salt
To my knowledge, there is only one other place who do a similar artisan salt this way, and that’s here in the Philippines. Bohol also has a similar process, but unlike the Namtso Salt the one in Bohol is made for cooking.
In using the Namtso Salt as a protection against negative energy or to drive away evil spirits, it’s advisable to place one whole Namtso Salt in each room of the house or in the room where the evil spirit dwells. If you’re confined in a hospital, it’s also good to bring one whole Namtso Salt and place it in your hospital room.
Breaking a Namtso Salt into smaller pieces can also act as protection amulet. Again it will drive away evil spirits and protect us from negative energy. It is recommended when carried on as an amulet, place a small chunk (about the size of a tablespoon) in a red cloth and carry it with you. Carrying when going to the yin places like cemeteries, hospitals, etc. will also protect us from the yin energy of the place. These small chunks will also act as a micro wealth luck enhancer.
As mentioned, to use the Namtso Salt as wealth enhancer, one can place it on the dining table and on the center table of the living room.
Placing a whole Namtso Salt on the front door will repel all negative energies, and putting them inside the toilet, will help alleviate the negative energies cause by having a toilet in that section of the house.
Taking a Namtso Salt bath is also the most effective salt bath. One you can do is get a small chunk about a size of a tablespoon and put it in the tub.
China’s invasion of Tibet has made the making of the Namtso Salt even more difficult. It was already extremely difficult to make a batch of Namtso Salt before but it was even harder now, so much so that per batch of Namtso Salts are only made every 10 to 15 years. Furthermore, this is usually smuggled out of Tibet because the Chinese government in an effort to stop Buddhism has also made it illegal to make and export Namtso Salts out of Tibet.
A very limited number of Namtso Salts is being made available for the readers of this blog thru the kindness of my Guru Lama. Proceeds of the sale of the said Namtso Salts are to be given to either for the food of the Buddhist monks or to Tibetan refugees. However, because of the bulkiness of the Namtso Salts, there will only be limited areas or countries that can receive them. Also, for shipments we might have to do it by bulk.

People in the USA are now celebrating ‘Thanksgiving’. I personally believe that this is one of the most wonderful holidays that they have but is not celebrated in other countries. Every Thanksgiving, people are reminded to be thankful for what they have.
In Feng Shui, being thankful brings in a lot of goodluck. But more than about Feng Shui, allow me to share with you I stumbled upon about the benefits of being a grateful or thankful heart. Please click here.

Myth Buster 17: Feng Shui Charms and Buddhist Amulets Given as Gifts are More Potent

Published November 28, 2014 by jptan2012

fengshuigiftRecently a reader, KT, asked me whether Feng Shui charms and Buddhist amulets given as a gift are more potent than the one that was personally bought. This is a very common misconception. The truth is Feng Shui charms and Buddhist amulets whether given or bought have the same amount of potency. However, if it was given as a gift, you do get a spurt of good chi because of the good and thoughtful act of the person sincerely wanting you to have good luck and the love that comes with it. This is a entirely different luck and has no effect on the efficacy of the charm or amulet.
