Whether You’re A Christian, A Buddhist, or A Muslim…Thou Shall Not Mention The Name of the Lord Thy God in Vain!

Published Oktubre 1, 2013 by jptan2012

Recently a Christian friend believes in Feng Shui ask me whether what do I think is the basis of the Christian rule that states that – THOU SHALL NOT MENTION THE NAME OF THE LORD THY GOD IN VAIN.ten commandments

This got to me thinking, but it was then I realized that I will never mention the noun Buddha, or Bodhisattva or Kuan Yin, etc. just because I feel like mentioning them. For me it always has to be in the context of a real conversation and never in a joke.

I called up my Feng Shui teacher who is also a practicing Taoist and Buddhist. He explained to me that mentioning the name of the Lord or God, whether your Lord or God is Allah, Jesus Christ, or Buddha in vain creates a lot of negative karma because this shows a total disrespect to THEM.

But what is in vain? It’s easier to site some example rather than explaining it. So here are some of the examples.

Saying – OH MY GOD! – although you didn’t specifically mention Buddha or Jesus Christ, or Allah, by saying God in reference to your God or Lord is tantamount to mentioning His name in vain.

Another example is saying – THE LORD IS GOOD – then proceeded to a negative statement is also earning a negative karma. For example, THE LORD IS GOOD AND HE WILL PUNISH YOU! – earns the person saying it a thousand fold of negative karma. Why? Because it is not for us to judge who gets to be punished or not, furthermore, LORD or GOD was mentioned in the context of a negative thing.

Saying the name of the LORD or GOD in the context of insulting a person or threatening a person is another example of mentioning it in vain and earning a person a thousand fold of negative karma. Another example – THE LORD IS GOOD AND JUST. HE WILL PUNISH THOSE WHO DESERVED TO BE PUNISHED! – again this statement although true obviously is used negatively.

What are the possible effects? According to my guru Lama, whom I also called to ask about this, said that the negative effects of mentioning the name of Buddha (and I guess this applies to Allah and Jesus Christ or Lord or God as well) are quite big although it can be gradual. According to my guru Lama, that some of the effects that he has seen are the following:

Bad family life. According to my guru Lama, there is this Buddhist woman who used to drop the name of Buddha as if Buddha is her personal soldier. When she doesn’t like what a person did she would say – BUDDHA IS GOOD. WE WILL SEE IN THE FEW MONTHS OUR KARMA. Unfortunately, although she continuously to be well off, her family life became really bad. Her grown up children don’t care for her. Her biggest stumbling block to achieving real happiness is her own mother. Furthermore, her husband left her, and while she has another partner, the guy was a source of burden to her because he was unable to fully commit to her. She’s always afraid that he might leave her like what he did to her before! After several split up, the guy found his ‘true love’ and left her permanently!

Painful and difficult death. My guru Lama didn’t specifically shared any story, but he said that mentioning the name of our God in vain may cause and painful and difficult death because of the negative karma one accumulates!

So remember, do not mention that name of the Lord thy God in vain. And again, whether your Lord or God is Buddha, Allah, or Jesus Christ!

Four Different Types of Luck Base on Your Kua Number

Published Mayo 16, 2012 by jptan2012

A few post ago, I wrote about – WHAT IS FENG KUA NUMBER AND HOW TO CALCULATE IT. In that particular post I wrote about the different types of luck and bad luck base on different directions as dictated by your Kua number.

Today, allow me to share with you the 4 different types of good luck base on your Kua number. The four different good lucks are SHENG CHI (Success), TIEN YI (HEALTH), NIEN YEN (Relationship/Love) and FU WEI (Personal Development/Growth).

It’s advisable to always bring a compass with you if you really want to ensure that you always activate your lucky directions.

SHENG CHI, which I have indicated as the ‘Success’ direction, is actually loosely translated as ‘generating chi’ or ‘generating energy’. Most Feng Shui experts and Chinese believes that this is the best amongst all the four different luck, because this largely governs your personal success, especially in business, or if it is wealth growth and prosperity that you’re looking for. This direction also governs your ‘political’ potential. By political I don’t mean it to be the real sense of politics but more of how you handle situation in your professional life.  This is also the direction that governs your recognition luck.

TIEN YI is loosely translated as ‘heaven’s doctor’. This largely governs one’s health. If you are experiencing health problems or is afflicted with the illness star it’s best to have your head face the direction of your Tien Yi when sleeping, just make sure that the illness star is not in that direction on that particular year. However, Tien Yi is not only about health, it also provides medium range wealth and career luck. So some people consider this as the second best luck.

NIEN YEN’s loose translation is ‘descendant and longevity’, but as you can see the English translation that I indicated is RELATIONSHIP/LOVE, because this directions basically deals with primarily family relationship luck and descendant’s luck. This is also the luck that governs your all your relationship that includes love life. This is also a secondary health direction, so if you’re sick and is unable to face your Tien Yi direction, this is the second option.

FU WEI’s loose translation is ‘basic self’. This is the direction that largely governs your personal growth but is not related to career and/or financial growth. This direction is largely associated with people who need to seek enlightenment or needs to know what they want to do in life. This is also a direction that is largely beneficial to those who need to seek spirituality and clarity. If you’re going through a lot of personal problem, this is the direction to activate.

It’s quite easy for us to misinterpret that Sheng Chi is the best luck; in fact, this is the case with most Chinese and some Feng Shui experts. However, I don’t think this is the case, each of the lucky and it’s corresponding directions base in your Kua number serves it’s own purpose. For example, you may be enjoying career success and financial luck but is going through a tough personal fulfillment phase; you can activate your Fu Wei and need not concentrate too much on your Sheng Chi. You also may be a successful businessman, but your health of family life is bad, then you can activate your Tien Yi and Nien Yen respectively. It’s really finding the right balance and looking for what’s missing in your life or what would be your priority.

How do you activate these directions, it’s quite simple, you just face that direction when working and eating. When sleeping your head should be towards the direction you want to activate.

If you have the lucky directions, you also have the unlucky directions. If you wish to know more about it you can read my post – FOUR DIFFERENT TYPES OF BAD LUCK BASE ON YOUR KUA NUMBER.
