Myth Buster 45: Throwing Coins Creates Safe Travel!

Published Hulyo 7, 2017 by jptan2012

Recently, there was a news about a Chinese woman who delayed an airline flight by 5 hours because for good luck and safe trip she decided to throw coins into the propeller of the jet.

I was swamped with the question whether there is a basis for this.

This practice started hundred of years ago when the main mode of transportation to other places is by boat or ship. When they will a rough part of the sea, they will throw some offerings to the sea to help appease the gods or spirit of the sea. Later on throwing coins seems easier then people start to think that they should throw coins to deceive the spirit that these are ‘people’ since coins have images of heroes, they will then stop getting the spirit of those aboard the boat or ship.

I personally don’t know whether this has any basis. But I’m inclined to believe that this is not true. I have written about Feng Shui rituals for a safe trip before. But to make easier I simply bring my Vajrapani Ruel and my Kalachakra pendant with me. With that I’m assured of safe flight.

One After the Other TV and Movie Projects and a Successful Restaurant Business Attributed to the ‘Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant’ : Another Personal Testimony of A Reader Who Happens to be an Actor

Published Nobyembre 28, 2013 by jptan2012

Again, I would like to share another personal testimony of a reader who has a wonderful story to share about the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT(1). I really love to share these kinds of stories because it still amazes me how something so simple, something that I designed for myself and for my family has become a vehicle of blessings to a lot of people.

An actor shared this story with me and to protect his identity I will not even use his initials, I’ll just call him A, which stands for actor.television_17512_600x450

Having been exposed to some Feng Shui rituals done by a Taoist priest, A is no longer new to Feng Shui. So when A’s friend send him a link to this blog site, A immediately became a regular reader. Until one day, he said, he encountered some problems that he thought he’d get in touch with me.

I have seen some of A’s movies and I can say that he really is a good actor. In fact, he has won several recognitions from prestigious award giving bodies. However, since age is catching up on him, projects have become fewer and although he has a restaurant, it was not doing good as well. In fact, he faces the danger of closure and the bank might foreclose not only his business but also his house. Out of desperation, he contacted me and ‘gambled’ on the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT(2). I use the word gambled because the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT(3) is not affordable. In fact, due to its intricate double – sided design, it is quite pricey. However, he was banking on the testimony of his friend who has gotten the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT(4) and has experienced some comfort that he attributed to the pendant.

The back side of the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA MANTRA BLESSING PENDANT has the images of the Victory Banner, Lung-Ta or Windhorse, the seed syllable of the Goddess Tara - TAM, and the symbolic script of the MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA, WISH FULFILLING MANTRA, and the NEGATIVE KARMA CLEANSING MANTRA.

According to A, after getting his pendant, he started getting offers, in fact, he said, since then he never ran out of any TV project offers and he has even squeezed in some movie in between. This helped him paid off his debts and also gradually his business started to get better again. In fact, he has moved to a bigger place from the smaller one where he started and has since branch out.

All these he attributed to the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT(5).

Special Energizing Buddhist, Taoist, and Feng Shui Rituals to Bring Wealth, Career, and Personal Success (7): Make Peace with the Spiritual Realm Through Incense, Holy Sound, and Mantras

Published Disyembre 11, 2012 by jptan2012

It is extremely boastful for us to think that we don’t live with the unseen beings. We should all acknowledge that the spiritual realm surrounds us, and that we are surrounded by spiritual beings.

Sometimes, there are things that we do that may offend the spiritual beings and since we are unable to communicate with them, it is important that we constantly ‘make peace’ with them by constantly offering incense and holy sounds through the ringing of bells and/or singing bowls.

As an offering to the spirits, sandalwood is best.

Chanting a mantra dedicated to them is also a very effective way of ‘making peace’ with them. The mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion– OM MANI PADME HUM – or the mantra of the Medicine Buddha – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA – are just two of the most wonderful mantras that we can chant for the spiritual beings that surround us.

Special Energizing Buddhist, Taoist, and Feng Shui Rituals to Bring Wealth, Career, and Personal Success (6): Read Sacred Texts to Imbibe Different Kinds of Blessing

In Buddhism, reading or carrying a sutra will imbibe the blessing of a Buddha or Bodhisattva to whom the sutra comes from. I personally read the Medicine Buddha sutra everyday. It’s quite long but if you are in a rush, reading the shortest sutra in the world, which is the – THE HEART SUTRA – which is the Sutra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion, will also do.

The HEART SUTRA which is also one of the Sutras of the Bodhisattva of Compassion is the shortest sutra in the world. This is the Chinese version of the sutra.

Reading a sutra is a very powerful way to open up yourself to the blessings of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas. More importantly, it cleanses you from negative energies and negative karma. Sutras also carries with them protective attributes that work like amulets and by simply carrying the sutra or reading them you spiritually acquire these protective attributes.

For non-Buddhists, I was told that the Koran and the Bible might also bestow some blessings to the reader simply by looking at it.

Special Energizing Buddhist, Taoist, Feng Shui Rituals to Bring Wealth, Career, and Personal Success (5): Put Sacred Objects or Images in Your Home and Workplace

The simple act of inviting a Buddha, Bodhisattva, Goddess, Deity, Immortal or a Saint in your home or workplace will shower upon you wonderful blessings of peace, luck and protection. Having a Sacred Image can immediately transform negative energy into positive ones, and if the energy is all positive, it can ensure that the energy stays positive.

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.

Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin is known as Cannon in Japan. Notice that even though the image looks feminine, the breast is exposed and its flat signifying a breast of a man. This is to signify that Kuan Yin has no gender.

Constantly seeing the images of Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Deities, Immortals, or Saints will also subconsciously connect us to higher form of consciousness.

While I prefer actual images of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, etc. Other sacred objects like Prayer Wheels, Stupas, or the Koran for Muslims or the Bible for Christians will also do.

Special Energizing Buddhist, Taoist, and Feng Shui Rituals to Bring Financial, Career, and Personal Success (3): Upsurge the Yang Energy of Your Front Door and Living Room

Published Disyembre 6, 2012 by jptan2012

Feng Shui masters believes that it is in the front door and the living room of our house that energy enters, thus it is very important that we keep the front door of our house free from clutter, and the living room uncluttered and also the furniture should be arrange in a way it doesn’t feel like it’s a maze and blocks normal passage.

The front door should always be clutter free.

Putting a pair of Piyao/Pixiu in front of the front door may also spell a lot of difference. It doesn’t just guard the whole house but it also captures luck and brings it to the inhabitants of the house.Piyao4

2012 Chinese New Year Feng Shui Rituals to Usher in the Year of the Water Dragon!

Published Enero 7, 2012 by jptan2012

First, the title of this post is not entirely correct because when ushering in the Chinese New Year using Feng Shui, you eventually do Taoist and Buddhist rituals as well. You might be asking why Taoist and Buddhist rituals? That is because Chinese, without directly meaning to do it, has really mixed both religions. But that’s something I’ll discuss further on a another post.

For now, suffice to say, that a lot of us are greeting each other ‘Kung Hei Fat Choi’. You’ll hear this either from Filipinos or Filipino-Chinese. Most non-Chinese believes that this is actually Happy New Year in Chinese, but the truth is its – WISHING YOU PROSPERITY AND WEALTH!

Every year there are rituals done by Chinese to usher in the Chinese New Year. This is basically standard practice but may vary a little from time to time depending on the elements of the year. For example, this year the Water Dragon Four Pillars or Bazi chart is extremely lucking of the fire element, thus we need to add more fire into the ritual.

1. If you have had an extremely bad 2011 Year of the Metal Rabbit, it would be good to get an haircut 2 to 3 days before we usher in the Year of the Water Dragon w/c is the day of the Chinese New Year. For this year, we usher in the Chinese New Year on January 23. 2012.

2. It’s important that you a create an atmosphere of positive energy. You do this by doing a Spring Cleaning. Throw away all things that you don’t need. Don’t be attached to useless worldly things. Take note, that Spring Cleaning is not only done at home. Do this at home, office, stores, even your car.

3. A day before Chinese New Year, gather all your Feng Shui charms at home, clean them, and place them in front on your altar. If you don’t have an altar take them out for about an hour and expose them to sunlight.

4. On the 2nd day of Chinese New Year (January 24, 2012) gather all your Feng Shui charms that are in front of the altar and ‘re-energize’ them by tying a new, clean red ribbon around them. Then place the charm in the locations where they’re needed for the year of the Water Dragon. Please check the Flying Star of the Year.

The simple act of tying a clean red ribbon around your old but clean old Feng Shui charms re-energizes it. You need not buy new Feng Shui charms every year.

5. Make sure that all the lights in your house are turned on. Do this from the eve of Water Dragon to the day of the Chinese New Year. Basically, from Jan. 22, 2012 to Jan. 23, 2012. While this is done this year, for this year, it would be great if you can extend this to Jan. 24, 2012 noon time. This is because the four pillars / bazi / paht chee chart of the year shows that there is no fire and light represents fire. By keeping our lights on, we ensure that we usher in the element of fire.

6. Make sure all the door and windows of the house are open. Unless, it faces SouthEast. This is because the Flying Star #5 (aka 5 Yellow Star which brings extreme bad luck) and the Tai Sui (also spelled as Tai Suey) God of the year is in the SouthEast.

7. If possible, go to a Buddhist or Taoist temple and light an incense between 11pm (Jan. 22, 2012) and 1am (Jan. 23, 2012). If this is not possible, the next best time to go is between 7am and 9am of Jan. 23, 2012. However, if it’s not possible for you to go out, every member of your family should light three red incense on your altar. For Catholics, you can light a candle. Just make sure you don’t burn anything.

8. VERY IMPORTANT: ALL PEOPLE BORN UNDER THE SIGN OF THE DOG MUST STAY INSIDE THE HOUSE ON THE EVE OF CHINESE NEW YEAR. BUT PLEASE DO GO TO A TEMPLE OR A CHURCH BETWEEN 7AM AND 9AM THE FOLLOWING DAY.

9. On Jan. 22, 2012 prepare the following:

Get 1 liter of water, put it on a basin or jar and put three different flowers in it. Make sure that the flower has no thorns. Put the jar or basin in front of your altar. If you don’t have an altar please put it on Northeast corner of your house. Sprinkle your house with this flower essence water between 7am and 9am of Jan. 23, 2012.

Get a tikoy, three pieces each of nine different fruits, onion leaks with roots (if possible), Chinese Cabbage or Pechay with roots (if possible), 1 RED bowl of rice grains, 1 RED bowl of salt, 1 Red bowl of sugar, 1 RED bowl of cooking oil, three bottles of beer or three shot glasses of liquor, 3 whole garlic with roots (if possible), 28 pieces of sweet candy (please make sure its not mentholated or has mint or eucalyptus flavor). Put these items on your dining table and leave it there for three days.

10. On Jan. 23, 2012 the whole family should all try to wear red and enjoy a meal together before 9am.

11. Please also try to light a candle on the eve of the Chinese New Year. This is again to make sure that you simulate the fire element which is totally missing from the Bazi Chart of the 2012 Year of the Water Dragon.

Lighting candles will simulate the fire element which is totally missing from the 2012 Year of the Water Dragon Four Pillars chart.

12. The eldest or the head of the house should give out Ang Pao or Red Envelopes with money to all the people in the house. It need not be a big amount.

13.  On the fifth day of the Chinese New Year, it will be great if you can offer incense and fruits to a deity and ask for wealth blessing. Because this is the first wealth day of the year. It will also be good to invite a new wealth deity this into the house. Some of the Wealth Deities are Tua Peh Kong, Kuan Kong (also spelled as Guan Gong), Sun Wukong (Monkey God), Dzambhala (also spelled as Jambhala), or Maitreya Buddha (better known as the Happy Fat Buddha).

Tua Peh Kong also called Tua Peh Kong is a famous Taoist Wealth God.

Guan Gong or Kuan Kong is both wealth and protector god. He is both honored and worshipped in Taoism and Chinese Buddhism. In choosing an image of Guan Gong its very important that you look at the face. The 'fiercer' the face the better.

Sun Wukong (aka Monkey God or Great Sage, Equal to Heaven) is also a weath and protector god or deity. He is both reverred in Taoism and Buddhism. One of my future post is about how he started as a Taoist Immortal and then converted to Buddhism.

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.

The Happy Fat Buddha is in reality called the Maitreya Buddha (also known as the Future Buddha). He is a great symbol of a wealth. In choosing a Maitreya Buddha please take note that he should really look well fed and happy.

14. On the ninth day of the Chinese New Year, we celebrate the Jade Emperor’s Day (more about the Jade Emperor on future posts). Chinese Buddhist or Taoist people should go to the temple and light some incense and offer fruits. Rooster and Rabbit born people whose Feng Shui forecasts for this year is not very positive should go to the temple and asks for the Jade Emperor’s blessings and protection. For Catholics, you can go to church and pray to an image of Christ the King.

15. The fifteenth day of the Chinese New Year is also termed as Chap Goh Meh. A lot of Taoist priest will be doing their Tai Sui Blessing on this day. It will also be nice to donate blood on this day to help clean out your negative or bad karma. People born under the sign of the Dog and Dragon will also greatly benefit if you donate blood or attend a Tai Sui blessing.
