Some Basic Questions About the Hungry Ghost and the Hungry Ghost Month Answered (1): If You See Your Relatives Who Passed Away Are They Considered As Hungry Ghost?

Published Agosto 24, 2017 by jptan2012

When people tell me that they saw their loved ones who passed away seemingly wanting to send a message, or if they tell me that their ‘father is still in the house guarding us’, I usually keep quiet, especially when they’re really happy about it thinking that it’s a good thing. Because continue seeing you dead relative most of the time indicates that they’re in a bad place.

According to Buddhist Sutras (scriptures) when a person passes away, he or she will reincarnate with in 7 or 21 or 35 or 49 days. But let me clarify that reincarnate doesn’t mean that he or she will definitely have become a human again, it could mean that he or she would have reincarnated as a human being or as an animal or as a consciousness in the hell, or as a hungry ghost. If he or she reincarnated as an hungry ghost he or she would have retained the consciousness or ‘soul’ as Christians would call it of that of his last life.

You may continuously feel a dead relative or love one’s consciousness from the time of his or her death up to 7 or 21 or 35 or 49 days, but after 49 days he or she would have definitely reincarnated.

So if you continue to see your dead relative chances are he or she became an hungry ghost, and he or she can stay as an hungry ghost for a long period of time, especially since the timeline of their existence is different from ours.

Now, is there any ‘exception’ to the rule?

That will be the subject of my next post.

Is Keeping A Picture of A Dead Person Creates Bad Chi?

Published Hunyo 4, 2014 by jptan2012

I know that yesterday’s article about embracing a tomb and taking pictures of it creates bad chi. I know that people will now ask whether keeping a picture of a loved one will also create bad chi.

Generally speaking in Feng Shui keeping a picture of dead person creates bad chi. However, there are some exceptions to the rule because one has to consider other factors that creates energy.

Pope John Paul IIFor example, for Catholics Pope John Paul II and Mother Teresa are people who died, but I don’t think keeping their picture will create bad chi because a lot of the Catholics considers them as living saints. To relate it to a Buddhist perspective, they are people who exude so much positive chi while they are living that their very image creates positive chi because it can only invoke positivity.

However, keeping a picture of Adolf Hitler at face value is bad because he embodies evilness, at least to most people. I would like to clarify though that I’m not here to judge the core humanness of the names that I mentioned above, but I’m only judging as the facts in history presents itself. In Buddhism, no one can judge a person is good or bad despite of their acts because no one can judge the core value or belief or reason for an act.

Keeping a picture of a dead person that you don’t personally know will also create bad chi, because there is nothing that will change that energy. However, keeping a picture of a person that you love, will not create bad chi, because the feeling of love towards the person should create enough positive chi to either temper it if not kill the bad chi.

Most Chinese will keep a picture and an alter of a dead relative. This usually creates good chi because one continues to ‘nurture’ the love by offering incense and/or food to the dead ancestor. However, this only becomes bad when the time has come that the younger generation feels neither love nor respect to the dead ancestor. Then the bond starts to break and there will be no buffer for the bad chi.

In summary, it is bad to keep a picture of a dead person because it creates bad chi. However, a ‘living saint’ and love creates much stronger positive chi that the bad chi these pictures create.
