The other day we talked about the wonderful Feng Shui cure that Singapore incorporated so that they can become one of the most progressive countries in the world.
Imagine a country so small devoid of natural resources and still come out as one the most progressive countries in the world. The natural order is for Asian’s to go to Europe or America to look for job, but go to Singapore and you’ll see Europeans and Americans going there not as tourist but rather to work there.
Today, allow me to share with you again another Feng Shui wonder of Singapore.
Singapore’s Suntec City houses the world’s largest fountain. The base of the fountain is located underground, and on its base perimeter lies the main basement restaurant area of Suntec City. The circular ring top of the fountain is visible at ground level. The fountain is called Fountain of Wealth, because it is said that the design of the fountain is base on a strict Feng Shui formula to help bring in money. You will notice that the flow of the water is inward, this is to continuously bring in money for Suntec City and that no money will spill outside. It is claimed that visitors to Suntec City, who walk around the central base of the Fountain three times and touching the water at all times, would gain some good luck of their own.
As mentioned most part of the fountain is beneath the ground, and surrounding the fountain above ground, is 5 buildings called One, Two, Three, Four and Five. It is said that these building represents the five fingers of the human, and in the center is the wealth. So in effect, it represents a palm and the wealth is within the center. Rumor has it, when Suntec City was making the said fountain, the city government wants them to extend the benefit to Singapore itself, thus there is a change in the design. It is said that after the Fountain of Wealth was created, Singapore further experienced an economic growth.
There is no denying that the leaders of the country has contributed a lot to the success fo the country, but there is also no denying that Singapore has incorporated Feng Shui to their country to help them propel forward.

In the last past 15 years or so there is a resurgence in the belief in Feng Shui, this time, extending it to the Western world and also to non – Oriental Asians. Different professional Feng Shui consultants started giving out Feng Shui classes in languages other than in Chinese, most common is English.
Together with the resurgence of Feng Shui, the line between Feng Shui and Taoism and Buddhism begun to blur, because both religion also makes use of Feng Shui. Feng Shui experts and writers begun to write about Feng Shui and was not able to properly delineate the difference. This writer included.
But the real issue here is that anti – Feng Shui groups started to rise also. More concerning that some commercialize Feng Shui consultants started to rise and harbor anger against other Feng Shui consultants or experts or writers.
People also tended to forget that Feng Shui experts are also human, and are prone to make mistakes. My own personal life is a testament that Feng Shui writers like me can make mistakes, and I unintentionally made several mistakes to my readers, which I’m trying to correct.
But the worst thing is that because of these things, sometimes we tend to say things that are unwarranted or are simply not true. For example, Sean, whose experience about the Vajrapani Ruel I wrote about in the post called – A PERMANENT HIGH PAYING JOB IN SINGAPORE BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE VAJRAPANI RUEL : A PERSONAL TESTIMONY FROM A VERY VOCAL NON – BELIEVER!– According to Sean, he has read a lot of negative things about Feng Shui, not just about my blog, but other Feng Shui writers or consultant, in fact, the pastors in his religions claims that the practice of Feng Shui is the work of a devil and that invites evilness. This is quite surprising because in Buddhism we are taught to respect all religions, and that there is no such thing as an evil religion, well unless it espouses hate and divisiveness. But even then there is always a caveat that at the end it’s the intent not the act that really matters, and that only fate can judge us.
Again, the people who don’t believe in Feng Shui tend to say things against Feng Shui, or Taoism or Buddhism. Sometimes, they because they experience negative things against a Feng Shui consultant or expert they tend to bad mouth and create rumors about Feng Shui, Buddhism, and Taoism in general. Sometimes just because they didn’t get the thing that they want they tend to spread rumors and attacking something that they don’t have an actual experience of. The sad thing here is little do they know the extent of their words or acts. Sometimes, they prevent people from getting good luck just because of these words. Furthermore, what they really don’t know is the bad luck that they create because of their acts. They slander Buddhism and Taoism is like slandering the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Taoist Gods and Deities themselves. And the great bad karma that they get because of the their acts that prevented other people from getting their full luck is simply scary.
So next time, we should all remember that it’s okay to say what we believe in but it is best to stick with what we believe in. Do not slander other people’ s belief!
