Understanding the Special Gold Piyao: Your Questions Answered!

Published Nobyembre 9, 2017 by jptan2012

Today, I will continue to answer a few of the most common questions sent to me via email, sms or through voice call. Yesterday, or the preceding post was about answering the questions regarding the forecast and how to be protected. In it I talked about the Special Gold Piyao, but there are a several of you asking more about the Special Gold Piyao, and wanting to avoid confusion I decided to write about it separately.

  1. What is a Piyao?

I initially thought that I have given a good introduction of what is a Piyao (also spelled or called as Pi Yao, Pixie, Pi Xie, Pixiu, Pi Xiu), but not wanting to bore you with a long post, I might have shortened it to the point that it is not clear what a Pi Yao is.

A Piyao or Pixiu is a celestial being or celestial animal. Celestial is described as (adjective) (1) pertaining to the sky or visible heaven, or the universe beyond the earth’s atmosphere; (2) pertaining to the spiritual or invisible heaven; (noun) (3) an inhabitant of heaven. Taking this description, it means that a Piyao is a being or animal of the heavens or simply put a Heavenly Being or Heavenly Animal. Some people will say that a Piyao or Pixie is the Chimera, but according to Guru Lama this is not so. A Piyao is a celestial being that reside in the heavens. I cannot go into detail about this, because it is a topic worthy of an entire post, but in Buddhism, heaven is a plane of existence. In Christianity or even Taoism, Heaven is the ultimate goal of destination; it is the highest level of existence. This is not the case in Buddhism; Heaven is a plane or existence higher than Earth but definitely lower than achieving Bodhisattva or even being a Buddha. Anyway, a Piyao is a Celestial Animal that provides protection and is said to be good wealth accumulator or collector. This Celestial Animal, the Piyao, is more prominent in Taoist scriptures, for it is said that it was the Jade Emperor (the highest god in Taoism, but is only a high heavenly being in Buddhism) that instructed the Piyao to eat only Gold and Silver or precious metals. While it enjoys a prominent relevance in Taoism, it is still definitely mentioned in some Sutra, especially those that can be more esoteric like the “The Surangama Sutra”. In fact, you can see a Piyao in most Taoist and Buddhist temples especially Pure Land Buddhist Temples.

 

  1. So what does a Piyao really do?

Allow me to enumerate some of the things that a Piyao can do.

  • A Piyao is a celestial being or celestial animal that has a big mouth but it has no anus. Which means it only eats but it doesn’t ‘throw’ away anything, thus making it a good wealth accumulator or collector. This is also especially good for people who seem to earn a lot of money but find it difficult to save money.
  • Some people think that a Piyao is a dragon or has a dragonhead. Again this is wrong, a Piyao is a Piyao and technically Piyao has a fierce face because in Buddhism and Taoism, fierce connotes protection and aggressiveness. In fact, most wealth Gods or even wealth Bodhisattvas has a fierce looking face. For example, the five Dzambhalas (also spelled as Dzambalas, Zambhala, Zambala, Jambhala, Jambala), Bodhisattva Vajrapani, to name a few.
  • Piyaos has sharp teeth. Because they symbolically and esoterically use these teeth to bite of demons, and or negative energies. I know of people who always wakes up at around 3 in the morning. After wearing Piyao they just slept thru the night,
  • In the texts that mentions the Piyao, it is also said that Piyaos are bringers of good health.
  • Furthermore, as mentioned they are good protectors. In fact, there are a lot of people who escapes accidents unscathed only to find out that their jade Piyaos have broken into two or more pieces.

 

  1. Is there only one kind of a Piyao?

A Piyao is a Piyao so technically speaking yes; there is only one kind. However, it is better to get a Piyao with an active stance rather than that of a relax one, because experience shows that this symbolic difference does have an effect on how your image of Piyao works for you. Different Taoist and Buddhist scriptures also talked about the different ‘permutations’ of a Piyao and how this represents different aspects of our life and how it affects it.

 

  1. Guru Lama designed the Special Gold Piyao, so did he invent it?

The Special Gold Piyao was designed by Guru Lama base on some old Buddhist texts, and so he did not invent it. However, he did incorporate two different designs and molded them into one Piyao. He did this after performing an oracle to see if this can be done.

 

  1. So why is it called Special Gold Piyao?

Again, technically speaking, it is a Piyao, but I decided to call it Special Gold Piyao, because it is indeed a specially designed. Although copycats who have the means will surely copy the design, like what they usually do with the Feng Shui charms or amulets of Lillian Too. Each and every aspect of the design was well thought off and is base on old Buddhist scriptures. In fact, the harness is not a common feature, but is something that was incorporated by Guru Lama. Also, I would like to clarify (although I have not written about this to avoid confusion and making the communication so cluttered) that there are actually two designs made by Guru Lama. One is that I have already featured, and the other one has a slight variation. Instead of only coins at the bottom of the Piyao, are magical words that connote protection, abundance, luck, health, etc. What design one gets will depend on what one needs.

Instead of only coins at the bottom of the Piyao, there are magical words that connote protection, abundance, luck, health, etc. What design one gets will depend on what one needs.So if you are a person who really need to attract money only or is in a bad financial situation, you will get the one with only the Heavenly Money Coin. However, if you already have abundance of wealth and needs only to safe guard it, or if you also need protection, and good health, and abundance in other aspect of your life, what you will get are those that have the magical inscriptions that will further bring all these aspects to your life. It is Guru Lama who determines this, thus we will request for your birthdate when you request for a Special Gold Piyao.

So if you are a person who really need to attract money only or is in a bad financial situation, you will get the one with only the Heavenly Money Coin. However, if you already have abundance of wealth and needs only to safe guard it, or if you also need protection, and good health, and abundance in other aspect of your life, what you will get are those that have the magical inscriptions that will further bring all these aspects to your life. It is Guru Lama who determines this, thus we will request for your birthdate when you request for a Special Gold Piyao.

Piyao2d3

Other than the magic inscriptions at the bottom both designs are basically the same. Please note that the photo of the Piyao is base on a close – up shot. The Piyao is less than an inch long.

Also, as mentioned in my previous post, Guru Lama designed these Piyaos as usual with a fierce face, however, he has also made in gentle or friendly, so it was quite a challenge to ensure that it comes out the way want it to be – FIERCE YET FRIENDLY. This is one very important factor that makes it unique and special. Because the energies of the year will be quite hostile in terms of moneymaking capacity, and even if were not hostile, you still want enough aggressiveness and power to be able to get that career or business goal and that wealth luck that you want, but at the same time you don’t want to appear very fierce that people will hate you and you will lose support or live/work in a unfriendly and hostile surrounding, thus it has to connote friendliness also for you to continue to have support and that no hostilities and envious eyes will be thrown against you. This is very important for Guru Lama that you don’t just get wealth luck or financial luck or money luck and feed on hostilities but that you get them in a friendly competitive and harmonious way.

You can read about the other features on my previous post.

  1. So it is the design that makes it Special?

At this point, I would like to clarify that the best Piyaos are those that are made of real jade and gold. This is base on the experience of Feng Shui experts, Taoist priests, and some Buddhist lamas.

But what makes this particular Piyao really special aside from the unique well thought off design that will address several concern, is that the metal use here is 24k pure gold coming from the ‘treasury’ of the temple. These are gold that were ‘donated’ to the temple as a way of an offering. These gold (which comes from either a jewelry or sometimes even miniature/small gold bars or gold coins such as those that can be bought in Dubai and China) are then placed in secured container and placed under the foot of an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva, usually images of Sakyamuni Buddha (Shakyamuni Buddha), Amitabha Buddha, Medicine Buddha, Dipankara Buddha (Dipamkara Buddha), Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (Earth Store Bodhisattva, Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa), Bodhisattva Kuan Yin (Kuan Shi Yin, Quan Yin, Quan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon, Chenrezig). They are placed there for years, and while they are there, when the High Lamas like Guru Lama or the Bhiksus or Bhiksunis perform a puja or chant a mantra or recite a sutra, they are blessed by it’s energies. And so the gold made into the Piyao are considered blessed gold.

I would like to add, these are same gold made images of Buddhas or Bodhisattvas, or for gold plating images.

 

  1. What if I’m not able to get the Special Gold Piyao does that mean I cannot have the protection and luck I need?

If you can’t get the Special Gold Piyao, which admittedly might be relatively expensive for some people (because again in exchange of the Piyao you need to make offering of images of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas and food for the monks, etc. as way of exchange of energy, aside from the labor cost in making the intricate design) you can always chant the mantras that I have written in my previous post. Or you can wear the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet. You can also ensure, regardless of your basket of elements in your Bazi Chart (Paht Chee Chart), to wear more metal. Any metal will do, but of course the yang energy of gold metal adds more chi to simply having metal in your body.

Furthermore, you can also get some Piyao. The design might be different but it should also work somehow. If you can’t a gold one you can get a jade Piyao and just wear more metal. But whatever you do, make sure you get one that in a active stance and not a relax stance, it might be a little more difficult to find but the small difference in the stance makes a lot of difference.

I hope I was able to answer your questions about the Special Gold Piyao. I initially was apprehensive to introduce the Special Gold Piyao to my readers because of the delay in the delivery of the last gold item that was released in this blog. I’m talking about the “Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant”. However, I was assured that there are several hundred pieces made already and so technically there is no waiting time. Furthermore, it is rarely that there is special piece with this well thought of ‘design’ that comes out, most Piyaos are that of a relax or resting stance. I personally have been looking for a gold Piyao with a very good design and in a active stance, but since I find it hard, I had to settle for some jade Piyaos, but even that was quite difficult to find, so I when I saw one I acquired several pieces for myself.

Lessons from a Feng Shui Charm Hoarder (1): One’s Evil Wishes Has No Match To The Power of Amulets!

Published Marso 5, 2016 by jptan2012

This is a difficult article to write and post, because of the sensitivities of the topic. However, this is an article that I need to write because of the lesson that we can learn from it.

A little more than a year ago, some readers in Mindanao called me to ask for help for one of their friend. These ladies are all friends and aside from being all mothers they are all also believer of Feng Shui. They have fond nicknames for each other, the one who really called me is called as Feng Shui Mom, one of their friend is call Prada Mom because of her love of the said luxury brand. They are calling me because of their concern with one of their newest friend who they called Jaded Mom. For the purpose of this article we will call this person JM, because of her nickname Jaded Mom.

According to Feng Shui Mom (FSM), they need help to help their friend JM because she is going through a crisis. She said she and her friends are quite concerned about JM because what started as a joke that she is jaded seems to be her truest sense of character.

FSM refuse to tell me the real problem until I have talked to JM and look at her Bazi or Paht Chee chart. When JM called me, she shared with me a little of her problems but I know that she was withholding a lot of things from, and I told her that I will just look at her chart first before we should talk again. When I looked at her chart I can see several concerns some of which will be discussed in the second part of this post, but one thing that stands out that she may have some emotional and physical dependency on men. Meaning, she can’t live without men in her life. The sad thing is even though she is married she might be seeking both physical and emotional dependency from other men.

Feng Shui charms2

Some people hoard Feng Shui charms like they are going to be a Feng Shui charm seller. According to my Feng Shui teacher one must be able to differentiate a Feng Shui charm collector over a Feng Shui charm hoarder. A collector is somebody who believes in the value of the Feng Shui charm or an amulet and knows that there are pieces that may be difficult to find again thus they collect once it’s available. However, most (not all) hoarder like JM, do this because it is their psychological protection that when they hoard a holy or a lucky item they think what they wish for is good, although they really know that in their heart what they are wishing for evil, malicious and very selfish.

In Buddhism, we are taught that no one can judge a person, because at the end even if the act seems wrong no one can really state the true intent of the said act. Meaning no one can judge a person but only karma will make the judgment by looking at our deepest intent. And so while her chart shows some negative aspect of her character one cannot really say that she is a bad person. However, one other concern shows that she may be pregnant but of course the chart won’t be able to tell who the father is. To add to the complications, her chart also indicates tendencies to be unable to face reality and yes she can be very jaded.

I called FSM and without revealing incriminating details other than those who she already knows she confirmed that JM indeed has a hard time facing reality. In fact, this is the reason why she and her friends decided to hook me up with JM so that she can get help from a person outside her limited circle of friends. They thought maybe she would listen to somebody outside their group.

I knew that I have to be quite careful in telling JM what I saw in her chart, but I also know that I still have to be honest with her. So I decided to tell her the truth but at the same time I did my best to be as tactful as possible. For example, in discovering about her extra – marital affairs, I used the words “emotional dependency with other men”, also regarding the possibility of her having physical contact with these men I used the term “physical closeness due to emotional dependency”. JM admitted that she yes she had had several extra – marital affairs, and that she has a guy at the moment that she is constantly seeing. She also believes that this guy is in love with her, although the chart shows otherwise. She also after several conversations admitted that she is pregnant and claims the father of the baby she is carrying to be her boyfriend and not her husband.

JM wanted some amulets because she said she wants to leave her husband who she claims to be an abusive guy. The chart doesn’t indicate whether this is true or not. I was torn whether to give her the amulets that she wants, but I told her that I would give her the amulets that she needs base on her chart. She wanted to hear that those amulets are to grant her wishes that she and her boyfriend will go out of the country and live together. If you notice, it was a little unsettling that she is willing to leave her three daughters! To avoid arguing with her, and as agreed with her friends, I will take the stance of telling her the truth without directly contradicting her. In short, I would always tell her that the amulets or Feng Shui charms will know what is best for us and that it will hasten to give us what we deserve and not what we want. Although, I will never contradict her whenever she would say that she wants her boyfriend to take her out of the country, I will always remind her that she should not dictate the outcome but rather expect that the outcome will be for the good of everybody.

Vajrapani Ruel

Some people hoard Feng Shui charms like they are going to be a Feng Shui charm seller. According to my Feng Shui teacher one must be able to differentiate a Feng Shui charm collector over a Feng Shui charm hoarder. A collector is somebody who believes in the value of the Feng Shui charm or an amulet and knows that there are pieces that may be difficult to find again thus they collect once it’s available. However, most (not all) hoarder like JM, do this because it is their psychological protection that when they hoard a holy or a lucky item they think what they wish for is good, although they really know that in their heart what they are wishing for evil, malicious and very selfish.

Among other amulets to protect her from legal problems that she refuses to reveal what the real cause is, but which the chart indicates potential legal problem because of embezzlement, she got the Vajrapani Ruel for herself. She also insisted to get the Vajrapani Ruel for her boyfriend so that he will develop a more determined character so that he will take her out of the country.

Although JM was quite new to Feng Shui I noticed she has this propensity to hoard on Feng Shui charms or amulets believing that the more she has the stronger possibility for her to lure her boyfriend into taking her out of the country.

I know what I did might be a little controversial, but according to my Guru Lama and her friends agrees also that it is better for her to get amulets and charms thinking that it will always do her hearts bidding no matter it is wrong, as long as I have been honest with her that it will do what is proper.

The Vajrapani Ruel has a very high personal testimony, and it indeed did the right thing for her also. Soon after she got the Vajrapani Ruel for herself and her boyfriend, things went right for her, albeit not what she was really wishing for.

Even though she got pregnant, and even though she claims that her boyfriend is the father of her baby (as it turn out later the boyfriend is not capable of conceiving a child), her husband forgave her and accepted the baby (the baby also came out looking very much like her husband, it shows that what she claims that she no longer have any physical contact with her husband, they actually still shares their matrimonial bed). Her boyfriend also who seems to be really quite fond of her develop a more determined character that he needs and decided to end the relationship with her.

You see, even though her real intent was not very nice, some will even say those are evil wishes, the truth is her heart’s negative desire has no match for the power of the amulet, in this case I referr to the Vajrapani Ruel, which is the amulet that she got, the same can be said for all amulets. The amulets are ‘extensions’ of the Buddha, Bodhisattvas, or Taoist Gods thus it ‘knows’ (for the lack of term) what you really need and it shall give it to you. It may or may not be your heart’s desire but it will give you what you really need. Let’s just hope and pray that JM learns to open her eyes and see the good luck that she received.

Note: You might be asking whether JM really exist. The answer is she does, but I have taken the liberty to take two similar persons and two similar stories and merged them into one.

Note: This is the first of a series of three.
