DO YOUR OWN FENG SHUI BY LEARNING ABOUT THE KUA NUMBER AND IDENTIFYING YOUR GOOD AND BAD DIRECTIONS!

Published Abril 27, 2018 by jptan2012

As mentioned, the last articles before the eventual ending of this blog is going to be more of an ‘educational’ posts, I will talk about how you can do your basic Feng Shui.

All of us has good and bad directions base on our birthdate or birthday, this is going to be determined thru our Kua number. I have written about this before, but I think it is important that this be discussed again, because this is something that is quite important and needs to be understand by everybody. It is also quite important that everyone learns how to determine their own good and bad directions. If you know this, you would have already dealt with 1/4th of your Feng Shui.compass

To achieve good Feng Shui it is important that you face your good directions when eating or working, your head should be directed towards one of those directions when sleeping, your bedroom should be in that sector of the house, and most importantly your house door or office door should be facing one of those directions.

Likewise, you should avoid the bad directions.

There are different Feng Shui schools of thought, and one of them is the Compass Feng Shui. Calculating the Kua number is a sub-thought of the Compass Feng Shui.

But before I discuss that, allow me to share the different good and bad directions.kua chart

The four different good lucks are SHENG CHI (Success), TIEN YI (HEALTH), NIEN YEN (Relationship/Love) and FU WEI (Personal Development/Growth).

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. This is also the direction that concerns your wealth luck, financial luck, money luck. 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 direction 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 its corresponding directions base in your Kua number serves its 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.

Now, the good directions are really just half of it. There are bad directions also, and in this case, it’s a perfect yin and yang concept.

Allow me to share the four bad directions.

One of these bad lucks is called HO HAI, which is loosely translated as ‘accidents and mishaps’, this is an unlucky direction in the sense that continuously confronting or activating this luck by facing its corresponding direction base on your Kua number will create some bad luck that should have been otherwise preventable. For example, you can fall off the stairs and break a leg, or through carelessness might miss out on some detail with work that might create some problem with your boss or colleagues or clients.

Another bad luck is the WU KWEI, literal translation is “Five Ghost’. This may sound scary and to some extent it is really quite scary. For people who have requested me to read their Bazi, I call this luck as ‘Personal Bad Luck’, because Wu Kwei tends to attack anything that’s quite personal. For example, if you’re a parent a child might get hurt, it can also create a lot of disharmony and quarrels both in your work place and at home. You might also have problems with fire and theft.

LIU SHA or “Six Killings’ is another bad luck. This basically attacks your career and wealth luck. Meaning, you might lose a job or get into trouble because of it. Its secondary effect is with the family, you might have a broken family or have some financial problems because of family matters like a family member that gets into gambling or an illness that will need long term care thus creating financial problems.

The last of these bad lucks is CHUEH MING, which is also directly can be translated into “Total Loss’, this may be scariest of all the bad luck direction base on your Kua number.  This is considered as the most fatal of all directions, because it might create total bad luck. Continuously facing or ‘activating’ this direction might even negate your good karma and good Feng Shui.

All these good and bad directions are based on your kua number.

Basically, your Kua number determines the lucky and unlucky directions of your life. I’ll discuss about these lucky and unlucky directions in details on my next post. But knowing your Kua number will determine whether you are an East or West group person and your corresponding lucky and unlucky directions.

The numbers one (1), three (3), four (4) and nine (9) belongs to the East Group. The numbers two (2), six (6), seven (7) and eight (8) belongs to the West Group. The number 5 (five) is replace by eight (8) for women, and by two (2) for men.

The four lucks are: SHENG CHI (Success), TIEN YI (HEALTH), NIEN YEN (Relationship/Love) and FU WEI (Personal Development/Growth).

The four bad lucks are: HO HAI (Unlucky), WU KWEI (Five Ghosts), LIU SHA (6 Killing), CHUEH MING (Total Loss).

If your Kua Number is 1 your lucky directions are – Southeast (SHENG CHI), East (TIEN YI), South (NIEN YEN) and North (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – West (HO HAI), Northeast (WU KWEI), Northwest (LIU SHA), Southwest (CHUEH MING).

If your Kua Number is 2 your lucky directions are – Northeast (SHENG CHI), West (TIEN YI), Northwest (NIEN YEN), and Southwest (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – East (HO HAI), Southeast (WU KWEI), South (LIU SHA), and North (CHUEH MING)

If your Kua Number is 3 your lucky directions are – South (SHENG CHI), North (TIEN YI), Southeast (NIEN YEN), and East (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – Southwest (HO HAI), Northwest (WU KWEI), Northeast (LIU SHA), and West (CHUEH MING).

If your Kua Number is 4 your lucky directions are – North (SHENG CHI), South (TIEN YI), East (NIEN YEN), and Southeast (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – Northwest (HO HAI), Southwest (WU KWEI), West (LIU SHA), and Northeast (CHUEH MING).

If your Kua Number is 6 your lucky directions are – West (SHENG CHI), Northeast (TIEN YI), Southwest (NIEN YEN), Northwest (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are Southeast (HO HAI), East (WU KWEI), North (LIU SHA), South (CHEUH MING)

If your Kua Number is 7, your lucky directions are – Northwest (SHENG CHI), Southwest (TIEN YI), Northeast (NIEN YEN), and West (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – North (HO HAI), South (WU KWEI), Southeast (LIU SHA), and East (Chua Ming).

If your Kua Number is 8, your lucky directions are – Southwest (SHENG CHI), Northwest (TIEN YI), West (NIEN YEN) and Northeast (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – South (HO HAI), North (WU KWEI), East (LIU SHA), and Southeast (CHEUH MING).

If your Kua Number is 9, your lucky directions are – East (SHENG CHI), Southeast (TIEN YI), North (NIEN YEN), and South (FU WEI). Your unlucky directions are – Northeast (HO HAI), West (WU KWEI), Southwest (LIU SHA), and Northwest (CHUEH MING).

Calculating the Kua number of a guy from a girl slightly differ from each other. For the guy, what you need to do is take the last 2 digits of your birth year. Add them together and keep on adding them until you get a single digit. If you were born before the year 2000, deduct this number from the number 10, and 9 if you were born in the year 2000 or later. The result is your Kua number.

For example: 1973 (7+3=10 / 1+0=1 / 10-1=9) Kua Number is 9

For the women, you also take the last two digits of your birth year. Add them together and keep on adding until you get a single digit. Add 5 to this number if you were born before the year 2000, add 6 if you were born in the year 2000 or later. If the result is a two-digit number, keep adding it again until you again get a single digit. This is your Kua number.

Please note that if you were born before Feb. 4 of the year, your birth year is that of the year before. For example, if you were born between Jan. 1 and Feb. 3, your birth year is that of the previous year. Let’s say you were born on Feb. 3, 2000, that means your birth year is still 1999.

As mentioned you must avoid your bad directions, but the reality of life is sometimes one can’t avoid them. There are a few cures available like putting rock salt, the problem is that you have to constantly replace them and many people forgot. The past few years, I have taken into recommending some amulets and these amulets have proven to be very effective in curing the negative effects of facing wrong directions. The cures are VAJRAPANI RUEL, SURANGGAMA MANTRA AMULET, and lately Guru Lama said that the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AMULET & LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULETS is also a very powerful tool to counteract the negative effects of facing your bad directions. Please note that when it’s your bedroom door or house door that is facing the bad direction, you have to carry the said amulet and at the same time put one on the door of your bedroom or house door. The SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO is also a very good cure for this concern.

Receive Wonderful Blessings of Wealth, Peace, and Protection from the Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras and Lama Atisha Combined Amulet (2): A Focus on Lama Atisha Amulet!

Published Pebrero 6, 2018 by jptan2012

In my previous post, I introduced you the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS, now allow me to introduce you to another very powerful Buddhist amulet called – LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET.

This is said to be one of the most powerful protection amulet in Buddhism. According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, simply seeing or touching a copy of the said amulet will bring a person tremendous protection against physical harm.

It functions like that of the scapular for Catholics. If a person has this on his body at that time of his or her death, it is guaranteed that he or she will have a good rebirth and will be saved from the lower realms. If displayed inside the house or office, one will be saved from bad influences of other people and it will help create harmony. It is also very good to have this amulet if one is in the hospital, to protect a person from the yin chi of the hospital, and it will also prevent you from getting the attention of the lost souls. Thus, it is also a very good amulet to have to wear when one is going to a funeral or cemetery.

I don’t have a personal story or story that I heard first hand about the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET, but one of the most popular story associated by the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET, and is widely accepted by the different Buddhist traditions is a story that happened fairly recently. It was suppose to have happened to a young Tibetan man and his family.

As you all know, China has invaded Tibet and a lot of people they are either doing some ethnic cleansing or is slowly erasing the cultures and traditions of the Tibetan who are still in Tibet. The man’s name is Tenzin Choejor ( the truth is Tenzin is a fairly common Tibetan boy’s name because it means ‘holder of Buddhist doctrines’, and the current Dalai Lama’s name himself is Tenzin. I was told that Choezor is not a family name but it is a second name, which means Dharma Wealth. From the name of the man, it can be concluded that his parents are devout Buddhist, but this is not unique because most Tibetans are devout Buddhist.)

Tenzin Choejor’s family is one of the many Tibetans who’ve experienced oppression in Tibet. He was born after the 14th Dalai Lama has fled to Tibet to escape the Chinese oppression, so it can be said that he has never experienced true freedom. He has always long for to escape the Chinese oppression of Tibet but has not dared to do it because all his family are in Tibet. However, his perspective changed when he got married and started to have his own family.

It is said that Tenzin Choejor has planned to escape with his parents, but in a country ruled by oppression and where paranoia is really high, the government soon found out about his plan to escape. It is said that it was possible that another relative or a friend squealed on him. Like most Tibetans who plan to escape or oppose the Chinese government, he was tortured and separated from his family and was put to hard labor for several years. Upon his release, he find it hard to start a new life, because he was considered as an ‘ex-convict’ and even fellow Tibetans who took pity on him will not hire him because they’re afraid that they might earn the ire of the Chinese government. This is when he realized and decided that the only way for him to survive and take care of his family is if they escape Tibet. This time, however, Tenzin Choejor is more careful and he only confided to his father, who told him to ask for the blessing of his grandfather, his father’s uncle, for a blessing because it will be a long journey, a very difficult one, and if caught they might be killed on the spot or if they’re not caught they might die of freezing in the mountains. His father also cautioned him to think again of his plans because Tenzin Choejor’s children then aged 10 and 7 might not survive the trip. However, Tenzin Choejor knew that’s the only way for them to have a better life, and he thought it is better to risk their lives that forever live under the Chinese oppression.

Tenzin Choejor great uncle is one of the few monks left in Tibet who has personally met the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, and because he is monk in a place under Chinese rule, it is expected that he is very poor. So he has nothing to offer Tenzin Choejor but the blessing that Tenzin Choejor seeks from him. He performed some Buddhist protection ritual, which was improvised to adjust to their situation, but then took Tenzin Choejor aside to tell him that there is one thing that he would like to give Tenzin Choejor.

He told Tenzin Choejor that he believe that the only reason he was able to escape the Chinese’s physical oppression, unlike most monks, is because of an amulet that he has kept for a long time. He told Tenzin Choejor that he believes that the amulet is one of the reasons that he remained alive under the hands of the Chinese communist government. He then gave Tenzin Choejor a leather cloth where the image of LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET is printed. He told Tenzin Choejor that the amulet would keep his family safe. It is said that Tenzin Choejor initially refused to accept the amulet, but his great uncle insisted and told him that he has no need for the amulet because of his old age and that he is ready to part with his body.

Tenzin Choejor then proceeded to escape Tibet. It must be noted that after the initial exodus of Tibetans from Tibet, the Chinese communist government has intensified border security, making it harder for all Tibetan planning to go to exile to leave Tibet. There is no exact statistics as to how many people have been killed or captured and tortured just because the seek a better life. Tenzin Choejor armed with determination and faith in his ‘religion’ decided to set out on an escape with his wife and two young children.

On his way to India, Tenzin Choejor encountered several problems, but somehow they manage to get away with it. Among these two things are an encounter with a Chinese soldiers and a fight against nature.

First, on their escape, they literally came across some Chinese soldiers, and because of fatigue and coldness because of the freezing snow, he and his wife noticed them a little too late. They came across two drunken Chinese soldiers, and was almost apprehended, in fact, a gun was already pointed at them. Should the soldiers decided to shoot at them, the soldiers won’t get reprimanded because there is a standing order to shoot to kill all people who are trying to escape. Fearing for the life of his family, Tenzin Choejor used his body to block his wife and kids, and instinctively touched the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET given to him by his great uncle and started to call on the Buddhas. According to their testimony, Tenzin Choejor’s wife didn’t know where he mustered her courage to talk to the soldiers.

Tenzin Choejor’s wife knows how to speak Chinese, being born and raised under the Chinese communist government; Chinese has been her second language. Tenzin Choejor knows the language also but because he grew up in the countryside he understands it better than he can speak. His wife on the other hand knows how to speak it but not fluently either. But she managed to address the soldiers and pretend that she is Chinese, and when asked why Tenzin Choejor’s himself doesn’t speak she told them that her husband is deaf – mute. There are many loopholes to her cover, like how can she explain their looks and what are they doing in the mountain, but because it was dark and maybe because the Chinese soldiers were drunk they let them go. Tenzin Choejor believes that it is because of LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET.

The second ordeal was when they were in the mountain, Tenzin Choejor’s second child got really ill. Without medicine all Tenzin Choejor and his wife can do are to call on the help of the Buddhas. Tenzin Choejor decided to take off the amulet and placed it on top of his son’s body. Needless to say, the son got healed.

After weeks of travelling in the mountain they finally got to the border of Tibet and India, where they plan to go in exile and seeks the Dalai Lama’s protection. But little did they know that India besieged by thousands and thousand of Tibetan exiles and without a place to put them has made it harder for Tibetans to go inside their country. Though they don’t understand each other, Tenzin Choejor understands the problem with their facial and body language. He started to touch the amulet again and hope for the best. Soon they were met by a Tibetan who took their story. Three days after they were put on a holding area, luckily with food, they were told that they could stay in India.

According to Tenzin Choejor, and these were acknowledge by the highest ranking lamas, it was because of the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET that Tenzin Choejor and his family survived the ordeal.

But who is LAMA ATISHA?

For that allow me to share his story using Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s own words. The following was lifted from the archive of FPMT.

Having a little bit of understanding of the life story of Atisha is very beneficial for our mind, so we can try to understand the teaching he wrote. By understanding Atisha’s life story and how he practiced Dharma and achieved realizations, devotion arises and we can feel that his teaching is most precious and pure. 1

Actually it is a very long life story, and it is divided into three parts. In order to have some idea about the great bodhisattva Atisha and how he benefited sentient beings, there are stories about his birth, his home, his birthplace and his early life. The stories explain how he achieved great knowledge and realizations with that holy body. Then after achieving the knowledge and realizations of the path, he benefited the teachings and helped sentient beings— he led the disciples and sentient beings to happiness.

Atisha’s birthplace was in Bengal, India. He was born as a prince and his family was extremely wealthy. He was surrounded by servants and workers, and there were 100,000 people just in his palace. The palace had thirteen golden roofs and 25,000 golden banners on the top, and there were also many pools, like in the West. At the palace there were 25,000 pools and beautiful parks, gardens of beautiful flowers that people could enjoy, seven bridges, and special trees that only grow in India.

When Atisha was three, he became an expert in general education—in astrology, letters, the brahmas, these things. He also became expert in discriminating the inner and outer being, so his parents wanted him very badly to take the place of the king. They tried very hard, but after some time he left with 300 horses, disguised as an army going to fight.

Many people went into the forest with Atisha to seek the guru. He took many teachings on refuge and bodhicitta, and then the guru sent him home to check up and try to understand the suffering of life. This happened three times. He came back, the guru sent him to another guru, and that guru sent him home to check up on the shortcomings of worldly life. His parents tried very hard to have him marry and take the place of a king. They invited all the beautiful women of the country to a party, and let them all dance around, but it didn’t work.

Atisha explained, “ There is no difference for my mind between this palace and a prison. There is no difference between beautiful, expensive clothes and the torn cloth in the garbage. There is no difference between delicious food and dog meat and pus. There is no difference between princesses and mara women—devil women.” Why devil women? Because they transform into beautiful bodies and cheat us. His parents listened to him.

Atisha followed 157 gurus perfectly and received many teachings, initiations and Vajrayana teachings. Once, while he was at home, Tara, the female aspect of Buddha, instructed him in a dream not to be attached to the samsaric happiness of worldly life. After this, Atisha went to see his guru. Then one day, after receiving many initiations, he thought, “There is no Vajrayana teaching left that I don’t know. I have become the most learned.” He felt a little bit of pride. That night, he had a dream that many female dakinis— transformations of buddhas who have high realizations of tantra—showed him many Vajrayana texts that he had never seen before. This made him lose his feelings of pride.

Atisha wanted to receive Mahamudra realization in his lifetime, by living in Vajrayana conduct. One of his gurus, Rahula, suddenly realized with his psychic power that Atisha was thinking this. Without any resistance, Rahula appeared in front of Atisha and instructed him, “What are you doing, forgetting all the sentient beings by leaving them? Take ordination and do great work for the teachings. This will be greatly beneficial for the teachings.” So, Atisha took ordination when he was twenty-nine years old. He was persuaded to do so by his guru and also by the buddha’s female aspect, Tara, Guru Shakyamuni Buddha, Maitreya Buddha and many other buddhas and Vajrayana deities such as Heruka, in his dreams.

After some time, when he was going around the Bodhgaya stupa—the temple in India, the most holy place where Guru Shakyamuni Buddha received enlightenment— above the stupa, in space, he saw the transformation of a young woman asking an old woman a question. At that time Atisha was concerned with quickly receiving enlightenment, and in space the young woman was asking the old woman, “What path should we practice in order to quickly receive enlightenment?” The old woman said, “Train the mind in love and compassion, in bodhicitta.”

Again, when Atisha was going around the stupa, there were paintings on the walls that talked to each other. One painting asked the other what path we should follow to reach enlightenment quickly, and the other answered, “Train the mind in love and compassion, and bodhicitta.”

Again, when Atisha was going around near Nagarjuna’s caves, he saw the statues of Buddha communicating, saying, “Train the mind in love and the compassionate thought, bodhicitta.” There was one ivory statue, and it said, “Yogi, if you want to quickly receive enlightenment, train the mind in love and compassion, and the thought of bodhicitta.” Many statues spoke like this.

Atisha went to see Guru Serlingpa, and he spent about twelve years taking the complete teachings on bodhicitta. In the presence of Guru Serlingpa, he received the actual realization of bodhicitta. Then Lama Serlingpa predicted that he should go to Tibet, the northern snow land.

At that time, there was a lot of degeneration of the teachings in Tibet. The people did not know how to practice the teachings, and they were confused about the practice of sutra and tantra together. The king of Tibet, Lha Lama Yeshe Ö, sent twenty-one boys to India to study Dharma and all of them except two died from the heat. These two came back to Tibet and told the king that everyone was talking about Atisha, the pandit, and that they should invite him to Tibet to help. These two translators’ names were Rinchen Sangpo and Legshey.

As soon as Lha Lama Yeshe Ö, the king of Tibet, heard the name of Atisha, incredible devotion arose in his mind, and he decided to invite Atisha to Tibet. He sent many gold offerings to India to invite Atisha, but it didn’t work. Then afterwards, he went himself to find gold for Atisha, and he was captured and put in the prison by an irreligious king who didn’t want the spread of Dharma in Tibet.

King Lha Lama Yeshe Ö’s nephew, Jangchub Ö, came to see him in prison. The irreligious king told Jangchub Ö, “I won’t free your uncle until you find gold the size of his body.” So, Jangchub Ö found enough gold to reach up to his neck, but still the irreligious king was not satisfied. He said, “If you don’t bring gold the size of his head, I won’t let him be free from prison.” Again, Jangchub Ö went to his uncle, the king of Tibet, and explained all these things.

The imprisoned king of Tibet, Lha Lama Yeshe Ö, explained to his nephew that since a lot of gold was offered to the irreligious king and he was still not satisfied, Jangchub Ö should not offer this king even one handful of gold. King Lha Lama Yeshe Ö said he was now very old and did not have long to live, and it would be more beneficial for his nephew, Jangchub Ö, to take the gold. He said to Jangchub Ö, “I don’t care if I die in prison. Take all this gold and ask Atisha to come to Tibet and spread the Dharma.” Then the king sent a message to Atisha through his nephew, saying, “I gave up my life to invite you to Tibet. Please guide me with your compassion. What I have in my mind is only for you to come to Tibet and spread the teachings.”

The imprisoned king sent the message with Jangchub Ö with a suffering, frantic voice, and then he passed away in prison. His nephew sent a translator with many gold offerings to invite Atisha, but the kings and abbots of India wanted Atisha to stay there. Finally, Atisha received permission and he came secretly to Tibet and helped spread the Dharma there. According to his teachings, he wrote the Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment there.

Atisha spread the pure Mahayana teaching like the rising sun, and all conflict, ignorance, and wrong conceptions were destroyed. His text was translated into English by some Tibetan lamas and other translators. I am reading the translation of this teaching because it is extremely beneficial. It is so short. Atisha did great work and brought so much benefit to India and Tibet. In India he destroyed many followers of other religions, wrong paths and wrong conceptions. He did great work.

These days, many young people from the West have the chance to hear the teachings and to understand and practice these meditations on the gradual path to enlightenment. They can find satisfaction in their lives, and they can make their lives meaningful and happy. They integrate it in their own mind, and they understand that there is a chance to make their lives meaningful. All these things are due to the kindness of Atisha, the great bodhisattva.

This great bodhisattva, Atisha, lived in discipline, and had the realization of moral conduct. He kept the 253 precepts purely, and on the basis of that, the bodhisattva’s precepts, the moral conduct precepts and the Vajrayana precepts. He had unshakeable, firm, one-pointed concentration that could last for years—even if hundreds of rockets were flying nearby they couldn’t disturb or shake his meditation. He had perfect realization of shunyata, the absolute nature, and he achieved high tantric realizations, seeing himself in the form of deities.

Atisha had high tantric realization without projections, and he did not see ordinary places—we see an ordinary house built of mud or cement, an impure place, but Atisha had only pure projections and pure view, and he always saw the view of the mandala of the deities. He had high Vajrayana realizations and he was able to transform even kaka into nectar and poison into medicine.

We can meditate like this to increase devotion to Atisha’s teachings. We can do checking meditation according to that. We may find it difficult at the beginning of the subject, and it may take time to understand, but by checking and understanding more and more the various meditations and teachings, gradually it will become clear within our mind.

Please note that Choejor is also spelled as Choezor and that the story from the archive of FPMT is part of Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s teaching of the life and work of Lama Atisha at 9th Kopan Course in 1976.

2018 Year of the Earth Dog – A Year With Bleak Financial Forecast and Poor Moneymaking Capacity: Understanding What Has Been Written and Also What Has to Be Done!

Published Nobyembre 8, 2017 by jptan2012

2018 dogI have initially written and scheduled a different article to be posted today. However, the overwhelming response to the two previous articles about the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog and how the metal element, which represents wealth luck / financial luck / money luck for the year, is totally absent from the year’s Bazi Chart (Paht Chee Chart).

Note: It might be better for you to read the first two articles preceding this post – (1) AN IMPORTANT PEEK TO THE 2018 YEAR OF THE EARTH DOG: A BLEAK FINANCIAL FORECAST AND EARLY PREPARATION IS KEY! and (2) A SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO EMPOWERED BY A CRYSTAL TO INVITE WEALTH LUCK.

The responses to the said two articles are overwhelming that I have decided to write another article about it to clarify some of the things. I have taken some of the most common or frequent questions sent to me via email or sms or even phone calls and decided to answer it here.

  1. Who is affected?

Technically speaking, almost all of us are affected. The severity of it will depend on several factors:

  • Your Chinese Animal Zodiac (Chinese Zodiac Sign) and I should write about this in the main forecast.
  • Stability of your business. Naturally the more stable your business is the less you will feel the effect.
  • Stability of your tenure in the company, if you are an employee. Again, if you have proven yourself to be a valuable employee the less chances of you being affected.
  • Stability of your Feng Shui either at home or office. It is important that you have a strong Feng Shui foundation in the sense that there is no or not much Feng Shui blunder. You might be stable but because you have a Feng Shui blunder which you have ignored so far because you are making money anyway, you might be affected by this. You see a slightly stronger negative energy combining with the negative effect of your Feng Shui blunder might create havoc for you.
  • Degree of compassion or kindness in your heart. I don’t mean to sound so dramatic, and this is definitely not a cliché, but the amount of goodness of your heart will definitely have an effect on how malevolent energies affect you. If you are sincerely a good person, you’ll find yourself being able to fight this negative effect of the absence of the metal element, ergo the absence of wealth and money, in the chart of the year. I don’t just say this out of the blue. One my reader turned friend BM, whom some of you might be familiar with because I often wrote about her is a living testament to this. Last year, being born in the year of Ox, she has one of the worst luck. But because she is a truly and genuinely good person who is very compassionate and kind and selfless, she breeze through the year with only minor hitch that are easily taken care of and it didn’t cause her any serious trouble.

 

  1. Is it all negative for 2018?

No. Definitely not! In my main forecast, you will see the good things. I shall write about it soon. But the lack of wealth luck as signified by the absence of metal element on the year’s bazi chart is a serious and important matter, thus the need to write about it sooner so that we can all prepare.

 

  1. Is this only base on my computation, analysis and interpretation of the chart? And how accurate are the forecast?

I always do my own computation, analysis, and interpretation of the annual bazi chart. From that process I create my forecast. However, this is something that I alone concluded and shares. My Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong has the same interpretation, my Guru Lama has warned about this a long time ago thus he decided to come up with the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET and the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO. But importantly, outside my circle the more prominent and reliable Feng Shui experts are also saying the same thing. Not to name drop, but even the world’s most famous Feng Shui expert, Lillian Too, is saying the same thing. I just don’t know how serious does she consider this as a concern.

Vaisravana Dzambhala Wealth Amulet

The Vaisavana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet has the consecrated copies of the mantras of King Vaisravana of the Four Heavenly Kings and the mantras of the Five Dzambhalas. Furthermore, there are some special ingredients in powder form that are included to add to the potency of the amulet. Before it is sealed it is furthered consecrated on the image of The Four Heavenly Kings.It is placed in a metal case, not just for its durability and protection but according to the Tantric Buddhist Scripture book where Guru Lama got the instructions for this amulet, it has to be placed in cylindrical metal case to symbolize continuity and stability.

Regarding to how accurate are the forecasts. That would be hard to say, I would say that no forecasts are 100% accurate. However, given that several, in fact most, reputable Feng Shui experts are saying that the absence of the metal element in the bazi chart is of concern should show some degree of accuracy. Furthermore, and modesty aside, you can also review all my annual forecast, since I forecasted the havoc of Typhoon Haiyan (Typhoon Yolanda) in the Visayas (the only Feng Shui writer or believer at that who has pinpointed that a calamity will happen in Visayas almost a year before the actual event and not post – event), I have always been credited of a more or less accurate annual forecast, that includes even the earthquake in Nepal. I say this with modesty, but I thought it’s worth raising this not to scare people but to make people aware. It is useless knowing something may happen if we cannot do anything about it.

 

  1. What can we do to be protected?

There are several ways to ensure that you are protected and I have written about this extensively on the first article about this year’s forecast. You can click on the link to read it: AN IMPORTANT PEEK TO THE 2018 YEAR OF THE EARTH DOG: BLEAK FINANCIAL FORECAST AND EARLY PREPARATION IS KEY!

In that article I talked about the fact that you should start now by ensuring that should there be a financial crisis you will not be affected. For business owners, do this by ensuring that clients cannot rescind your contract in a whim. That is one way of ensuring that you are protected. One has to save up also. For employees, do not spend all your 13th month pay and Christmas bonus this December. Spend wisely.

As mentioned, being sincerely good will reaps you good or better karma and it should help.

I have also discussed the use of amulets, and of course the VAJRAPANI RUEL is still going to be very useful, but for situations like this you might want to use or have the amulet that was recently rediscovered by Guru Lama, which has recently made and released because he has long since known of the bleak financial prospects of the last 3 lunar months of 2017 and of the lunar year 2018. I’m talking about the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET(2). Click on the link to read about it.

Also, Guru Lama has used some blessed or empowered gold from the temple to fashion a specially designed PIYAO (also called or spelled as Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu, Pi Xie, Pixie) to address this concern. This Special Gold Piyao has special designs to address this concern, but you will see that it is more than just for 2018, a Piyao whether with financial crisis or not is a good wealth amulet, and it is also a good protection charm. Read my post about it – A SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO EMPOWERED BY A CRYSTAL TO INVITE WEALTH LUCK! The money for the exchange of energies for this will go feed the novice monks, for clothes, and also an image of Buddha or Bodhisattva will be made plated in gold under your name.

However, that’s not the only thing that you can do. These amulets can be really pricey as most real and powerful amulets are, because of the process in making it, and the rituals or offerings that has to be made under your name. To understand this better, read this post – BASIC BUDDHISM 5: THE EVOLUTION OF ACQUIRING AN AMULET.

But of course, it is not all about amulets. In fact, if you can go under deep meditation and chant some mantras, it might even be more powerful that wearing amulets. Amulets are just but tools for us to tap into the power of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas. In my post – THE CHALLENGING LAST QUARTER OF THE YEAR: WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO PROTECT ONESELF– I wrote about the different protective mantras one can chant. Remember that these mantras are extremely powerful when chanted under deep meditation. For financial luck you can chant the following combination of mantras 108x each mantra under deep meditative state. A state wherein you are no almost not aware of your surroundings. The mantras are the following:

  • Mantra of the Compassionate Bodhisattva Kuan Yin: OM MANI PADME HUM
  • Mantra of King Vaisravana of the Four Heavenly Kings: OM VAISRAVANA YE SOHA
  • Mantra of Yellow Dzambhala: OM DZAMBHALA DZALIN DRAYE SOHA
  • Mantra of White Dzambhala: OM PADMO KRODA ARYA DZAMBHALA HRIH DAYA HUM PHAT
  • Mantra of Red Dzambhala: OM DZAMBHALA DZALIN DRAYE DANAM MEDIHI HRIH DAKINI DZAMBHALA SAMBHARA SOHA
  • Mantra of Green Dzambhala: OM KARMA DZAMBHALA AH SOHA
  • Mantra of Blue/Black Dzambhala: OM DZAMBHALA DZALIN DRAYE BASHU DARINI SOHA
  • Mantra of Wealth Granting Tara: OM TARE TUTTARE TURE DANAM ME DADA SOHA

 

  1. What if I can’t afford the amulets and don’t want to chant mantras?

I still believe rather strongly that a sincere PRAYER WORKS!!! I don’t think I need to expound about this. But we should always remember that a prayer works!!!!

Lastly, I want to share what a wise woman from Davao whom I fondly call BM here on this post said to me just today. She said that in times like this WE SHOULD TRUST THAT OUR FAITH IS STRONGER THAN OUR FEARS!

The Ten Realms of Existence in Buddhism (2): The Four Higher Realms

Published Nobyembre 9, 2016 by jptan2012

In the preceding first part of this post, I introduced to you the TEN REALMS OF EXISTENCE IN BUDDHISM and also talked about the SIX LOWER REALMS. Today, I would like to talk to you about the Higher Realms. We should all aspire to reach these realms, although the ultimate goal is that we enter the highest realm. Once one enter into these realms one will no longer go back to the lower realms but again the goal is to reach the highest realm. Once you entered this realm you are considered as enlightened, although not fully enlightened unless you reach the highest level, which is Buddhahood.

The 4 Higher Realms of Existence in Buddhism are the following:

  1. ARHAT. This is the first level of the higher realm. Simply put this is someone who by listening or reading and practicing the Buddha dharma, as extinguishes all defilements and has achieved nirvana. While it may be easier for the Asuras and the Deva (Heavenly Beings) to enter Arhatship, they are a lot of humans who has entered Arhatship also. This is especially true during the time of Sakyamuni Buddha. When an Arhat passes away, their body usually doesn’t decay in the way like most people do.
  2. PRATYEKABUDDHA. Is someone who entered nirvana and has ended samsara. But in Buddhism, there is a time that there will be no Buddha and no Dharma, but if one enters nirvana through meditation this person is considered as a Pratyekabuddha also.
  3. BODHISATTVA. The word is actually a combination of two words. First, Bodhi means awakened or to awaken to the truth. Sattva means sentient beings. In short it means an awakened sentient beings. During the time of Buddha Sakyamuni, it is extremely possible to become a ‘living’ Bodhisattva or to be a human Bodhisattva. To this day, the Dalai Lama and the Karmapa are considered as living Bodhisattva. A Bodhisattva is strongly characterized by their compassion, loving – kindness, wisdom, great vows, good deeds. A Bodhisattva also has tremendous power to help all sentient beings. Some of the most well known Bodhisattvas are Avalokitesvara (also known as Kuan Yin, Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kannon), Ksitigarbha (also known as Earth Store, Di Zhang Wang) Samantabhadra (also known as Pu Xian), Manjushri (also known as Wun Shu Shi Li), Maitreya (also known as Mi Luo and colloquially called Happy Fat Buddha), Vajrapani (also known as Chin Kang Shou) and who is the Bodhisattva that controls or has power over the Vajrapani Ruel, Mahasthamaprapta (also known as Da Shi Zhi) and a lot more. In Zen Buddhism and Tibetan Buddhism, they acknowledge that some people although technically not a Bodhisattva and do not have supernatural powers and still has a body, do manifest the wonderful Bodhisattva traits. At this point, I’m reminded of my reader turned friend BM and Mother Teresa, now Saint Teresa. (Incidentally, a saint maybe equivalent to a Bodhisattva).
  4. BUDDHA / BUDDHAHOOD. This is the ultimate goal, and Siddharta Gautama achieved this in human form until he moved on to spiritual form. As a Buddha he is called Sakyamuni Buddha. A Buddha is some who has achieved perfect enlightenment, and one who is has perfect wisdom and perfect compassion. A Buddha is not a God. There are so many Buddhas that existed and still exist before Sakyamuni Buddha, and according to Buddha Sakyamuni the next Buddha is Maitreya Buddha .

2013 – Year of the Water Snake Chinese Animal Zodiac Feng Shui Forecast: Rat and Ox (Part 2)

Published Disyembre 22, 2012 by jptan2012

FIRST, THE RAT…

Will generally have a good year. You’ll find that your career will be great and you will be quite successful. Wealth luck might be good also. I say might, because while you have the potential to have this luck, it might be dampen a little by the Black Sky Star, which is found through the use of the Purple Flower Star Astrology or Purple Star Astrology. Nevertheless, this year you’ll find yourself surrounded by helpful people and it’s up to you to utilize them.

However, you’ll also find yourself a little overwhelmed with the possible work ahead of you. Remember you can only get your wealth luck if you work for it and being swallowed by the task ahead will set you back.

You have to be careful though with your health luck. This is also due to the presence of the Black Sky Star. While this won’t bring about any serious illness, having this star might set you back a little because of a bad cold or a fever.

When it comes to relationships, this is quite a bad year for both the single and partnered rat.

The Black Sky Star is further aggravated by the two clashing pillars of the year.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear an image of a Protective God (Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong (Guan Gong) or Amitabha Buddha) to protect yourself from the Black Sky Star.

Amitabha Buddha is a very powerful protector Buddha.

Amitabha Buddha is a very powerful protector Buddha.

Wear or carry an image the Victory Banner.

Wear a Holy Gourd or a Medicine Buddha Pendant, preferably with Mantra.

Carry or wear the Double Happiness symbol.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success. This is especially true for people born in the year of the RAT, TIGER, DRAGON, SNAKE, SHEEP/GOAT, MONKEY, ROOSTER, and PIG.

Since the Five Yellow Star is in the Center this year. It is also advisable that all of us safeguard ourselves from this star. We don’t know when we’re going to be in the center of a house, or building, etc. It is advisable for all us to wear the Five Element Pagoda.

SECOND, THE OX…

Will have a very good year for both personal and professional life. Your life palace shows that you have the Wealth Star and this means that money will easily come to you this year. However, note that you have the tendency to get into a lot of argument, so just simply watch out for that. This is further strengthened by the Excellent Seal Star, which is shown by using the Purple Flower Star Astrology.

The Ox born in 1973 should watch out for the Snake born in September of 1965. For some reason, which started last year, the two signs, which are normally friendly to each other, will find themselves clashing. The Ox seems to be at the loosing end, but the Snake seems to be at the wrong. However, this is not generalizing but seems to be what is indicated in the chart. While this particularly true between the Ox born in the year 1973 and Snake born in the year 1965 with focus on the month of September, all Ox born people must be careful in getting into arguments which might lead to a long term disagreement or fight.

The Purple Star Astrology shows that there are a number of minor namely the Goat Horn Star and the Brown Flag Star, which might cause some accidents and/or aggravate the possibility of an argument.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear as a pendant an image of the Wealth Deity/God like Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong. This is if you want to further enhance your wealth luck. They will also act as a protector from the effects of the Goat Horn Star and the Brown Flag Star.

Wear or carry the Ksitigarbha Fireball.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success. This is especially true for people born in the year of the RAT, TIGER, DRAGON, SNAKE, SHEEP/GOAT, MONKEY, ROOSTER, and PIG.

Since the Five Yellow Star is in the Center this year. It is also advisable that all of us safeguard ourselves from this star. We don’t know when we’re going to be in the center of a house, or building, etc. It is advisable for all us to wear the Five Element Pagoda.

TENTH, THE ROOSTER…

Will have very good financial wealth luck this year. However, the presence of the violent star in your life palace indicates that you have to be careful about losing your money. Be careful also for possible violent incidents this year.

Career wise it will also be very good for you. However, the presence of Crooked Star as indicated by the Purple Star Astrology indicates that you might have some reputation problem towards the middle of the year.

However, you will also notice that you will seldom get recognized by your efforts and that other people might get credit from your hard work. Because of this, success in terms of recognition might not be attained.

However, be happy that the Purple Flower Star Astrology or Purple Star Astrology also indicates the presence of General Power Star and the Land Relief Star. The General Power Star indicates that if you get into a problem, you will find solutions easily if you focus on your own strength, also the Land Relief Star will also give you the resources that you need to attain whatever you wish for.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear an image of Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong to protect you from the violent star.

Wear an image of the Maitreya Buddha (also fondly and popularly called as the Happy Fat Buddha) to cure the effects of the Crooked Star.

Wear or carry a Victory Banner to help you become always victorious.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success. This is especially true for people born in the year of the RAT, TIGER, DRAGON, SNAKE, SHEEP/GOAT, MONKEY, ROOSTER, and PIG.

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.

ELEVENTH, THE DOG…

Will have a good year even if wealth luck is not very high. You have the Heaven’s Luck or Blessing star in your life palace and you’ll find yourself being bless in a lot of ways, especially when it comes to your personal life. While wealth luck is not very high, it is neither bad. In fact, you’ll still see some improvement.

The Purple Star Astrology indicates the presence of two other stars. First, the Death Amulet Star, which means that there is a possibility of death or serious illness not with the Dog itself but may be with an elderly family member.

The other star is the Haul Paddle Star, which indicates that there is going to be a big professional change in your life this year.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear a 3-Legged Toad pendant or an image of the Yellow Dzambhala as a pendant to enhance your career luck.

Put an image of Kuan Yin (The Goddess of Mercy), or the Medicine Buddha to counter the effects of the Death Amulet Star.

To ensure that the Haul Paddle Star enters smoothly wear an image of the Goddess Tara or the seed syllable of the Goddess Tara, which is TAM. The WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT also has the seed syllable TAM.

This is a jade Goddess Tara pendant from my personal collection.

TWELFTH, THE BOAR/PIG…

Is in direct conflict with the Tai Sue and this might pose some of the difficulties in attaining your personal luck and your heaven’s luck.

Wealth luck is average, however, since your life palace is flank by a Violent Star, you will have to be careful that you don’t lose this through robbery. Be careful also that you don’t get into unnecessary expenditures also.

Personal luck should be better, unless you’re unable to appease the Tai Suey.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Carry or wear a Piyao (also spelled or called as Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu).

Wear a Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong (also spelled as Guan Gong) to protect you from the Violent Star.

Kuan Kong

Wear an image of the Yellow Dzambhala or a 3-Legged Toad pendant to help enhance your wealth luck.

SEVENTH, THE HORSE…

Will have not have very ideal wealth luck this year. However, career luck might be on the swing. Meaning, this is a year where employed people born in the year of the Horse will be luckier than the one’s who are in business. The employed horse will have a more stable financial luck than the entrepreneur horse.

Also the Purple Flower Star Astrology also known as the Purple Star Astrology indicates that you have Bad Chi Star, which will have an effect on your overall luck and pull you down a little. But the Purple Star Astrology also indicates that you have the Sun Star, which is a very good star to have. This together with the Flying Star #9 (Future or Multiplying Luck Star) indicates that you somehow your inner being will indicate whether you will have a good life or a bad one.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear an image of the Yellow Dzambhala to help you with your wealth luck.

Wear a Ruyi or an image of Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong (Guan Gong) to help you with your business. Wearing an image of Sun Wukong or wearing a Kalachakra Pendant will also help you deal with the Bad Chi Star.

The Kalachakra symbol is one of the most powerful protection symbol in Buddhism. It actually consists of ten syllable mantra, with it symbolic script condensed into one. The mantra itself is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, the mantra of the Kalachakra is never chanted without the mantra OM AH HUM. Making the complete mantra of Kalachakra - OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. This is the reason why I decided to put the symbolic script of the mantra OM AH HUM on top of the Kalachakra symbol. As mentioned this is a very powerful protection symbol and can be likened to the Scapular of the Catholics. In fact, you'll seldom see a Tibetan Monk with wearing the symbol of the Kalachakra on their body. It may be hidden but most likely they have it somewhere on their body. But you'll never see them have the symbolic scripts tattooed because it is considered extremely bad luck to have a mantra tattooed on your body.

EIGHTH, THE SHEEP/GOAT…

Will have to be very careful about their health luck. You’ll find yourself sicklier or more prone in getting into accidents.

Wealth luck is not very ideal either, and you have to be very careful in getting into big business transactions.

There is also no significant good change in your career life, and you have to be very careful about being complacent because a simple mistake can be detrimental.

What’s worst is that the illness star that flies into your life palace is further aggravated by the negative stars that are indicated by the Purple Star Astrology. There are several of these stars, and they are the Flying Chaste Star, which may make you more prone to accidents. Also you have in your life palace the Earth Death Star and the Earth Door Star, this star indicates that they may be death of a loved one and a possibility of grave illness.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear a jade Wulou or an image of the Medicine Buddha as a pendant to protect you from the illness star and the Flying Chaste Star.

Wear an image of the Yellow Dzambhala or Sun Wukong to help you with your wealth luck.

Wear an image of Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong (Guan Gong) to help you with your career luck and help you with your business.

Wear an image of Sun Wukong or Kuan Yin or the Kalachakra as pendant to protect you from the Earth Death Star and Earth Door Star.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success. This is especially true for people born in the year of the RAT, TIGER, DRAGON, SNAKE, SHEEP/GOAT, MONKEY, ROOSTER, and PIG.

Since the Five Yellow Star is in the Center this year. It is also advisable that all of us safeguard ourselves from this star. We don’t know when we’re going to be in the center of a house, or building, etc. It is advisable for all us to wear the Five Element Pagoda.

NINTH, THE MONKEY…

Will see an easing from arguments and relationship problems. However, I’m afraid that all is not well because this time the Monkey will take a beating with their health luck.

Wealth luck is also going to be a bit of a challenge. It will feel like that ‘you’re swimming against the current’ and it will exhaust putting more toll against your health.

While there will be lesser arguments, you still need to watch out for your relationships with the people you work with. Do have less talk and more action. Do not just bark you have to bite a little.

Monkeys who are married to a snake, especially Monkeys born in 1968 should face the reality that they are married to a person who might not be totally honest with them. Love and respect your husband but take a look at what’s your worth so that your spouse won’t feel that they can get away with their infidelity with you.

The Hanged Spirit Star as indicated by the Purple Star Astrology might make you feel insecure further aggravating your relationship problems. You have to remember that you can share your feelings with your family members. An Ox family member may be especially helpful.

Be careful also of the Painful Knot Star also indicated by the Purple flower Star Astrology, which may bring in a lot of gossips and might put you in a compromising situation.

However, the Country Wealth Star of the Purple Star Astrology and the Multiplying Star of the Flying Star method indicates that you will get some of the help you will need.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear an image of the Medicine Buddha with mantra or a jade Wulou pendant.

Wear an image of the Yellow Dzambhala or the 3-Legged Toad as a pendant to help you with your wealth luck.

A married Monkey should tie an amethyst geode on the foot of their bed and wear a double happiness symbol pendant.

Wear the Ruyi to give you more authority.

Wear an image of Sun Wukong to help you in your business pursuits.

To counter the effects of the Hanged Spirit Star wear an image of the Maitreya Buddha (also popularly and fondly called as the Happy Fat Buddha).

This is from my personal collection. I wear this pendant everyday. In choosing an image of the Happy Fat Buddha to be worn as a pendant, always look for the face. Make sure that it has happy jolly face.

2013 – Year of the Water Snake Chinese Animal Zodiac Feng Shui Forecast: Dragon & Snake (Part 4)

Published Disyembre 22, 2012 by jptan2012

FIFTH, THE DRAGON…

Will have a generally good year. It is also a year where in scholastic pursuit or scholastic approach to things will help you reap success and wealth. You’re also flank by the Flying Star #9 meaning what you sow is what you will also reap. Do more good things and you will also be rewarded with more blessing.

Money or wealth luck will be smooth but you have to more open to advice coming from your family. Do not dupe yourself into thinking that you know everything.

Romance luck may be good for single dragons; however, those who are partnered should safeguard themselves from a possible third party. Whether you’re a single dragon or a married or partner dragon you should be thankful for the presence Crimson Chamber Star, as indicated by the Purple Flower Star Astrology, because this star will enhance the positive effects of the Romance Star but at the same time it will help safe guard the relationship of the dragons who are already in a relationship.

You are also partially affected by the Argumentative Star thus it will be good to take control of your temper.

The 37, 63 and 71 years old Dragon should be careful with their health.

The Tai Suey is also in the same sector of the sector of your life palace. You’ll have to be careful not to offend the Tai Suey.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Wear an image of the 3-legged toad or of the Yellow Dzambhala to enhance your wealth luck.

For single dragons wear a pair of mandarin ducks or the symbol of double happiness pendant.

Wear the Ksitigarbha Fireball as a pendant.

Wear a jade wu lou or holy gourd or an image of the Medicine Buddha pendant. You can also wear the symbolic script of the Medicine Buddha.

This is a sample of a Medicine Buddha pendant. This is similar to the one released by Lillian Too. Photo lifted in Google images.

Wear a Piyao either as a bracelet or as a pendant to appease the Tai Suey.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success.

SIXTH, THE SNAKE…

Will have to remember that you have a turbulent but potentially a good year. The stars are in your favor, however, the presence of the Tai Suey in your life palace will have to be taken care. You do this by sincerely being good and nice. You can also avoid the wrath of the Tai Suey by carrying or wearing an image of the Piyao (also spelled or called Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu).

Also, some of the Snakes had very financially rewarding 2012. However, most of these are indirect wealth in the sense that they had this because of the big help or big influence of other people. You might still have that, however, the Snake that forgot and become swell headed will see themselves taking a financial dip this year. That is simply the law of Karma working as indicated by the future blessing’s star.

The Snake born in the year 1965 will have to learn to be humble, among all the other people born in the snake year, it is the one born in 1965 that has the highest potential to have good luck, but also has the highest potential to have bad luck, this is because you are greatly affected by the multiplying star thus making whatever you do or think multiply several fold.

All snake should be careful with their health and do watch out for possible accidents.

The Purple Flower Star Astrology or Purple Star Astrology also indicates that you have the Hidden Death Star. Despite of the name of the star, the star no effect on death, however, it has something to do with your family relationship. This star might lead to frequent arguments. Also, if you’re a married snake and are living with your in-laws, remember that you have to be humble in your manner in dealing with them. You have to be careful also because you have the potential to get into infidelity, worse you might set your eyes with one of your in-laws. Remember that this is a disgraceful act!!!

Again, for the Snake born in 1965, you will have the tendency to have a big fight with an Ox born in 1973. Without generalizing, the stars indicate that most likely it’s the Snake who is at fault. Remember that the Ox is only defending his/her family.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Piyao worn as a bracelet or pendant.

Always get a Pi Yao pendant that has an active stance.

Always get a Pi Yao pendant that has an active stance.

Wear an image of Kuan Yin or Green Tara or Ji Gong to help you remain humble. Wearing a prayer wheel pendant, and putting several prayer wheels in your office, room, and home will also help.

2013 – Year of the Water Snake Chinese Animal Zodiac Feng Shui Forecast: Tiger & Rabbit (Part 3)

Published Disyembre 22, 2012 by jptan2012

THIRD, THE TIGER…

Will have a complicated year brought about by a lot of the conflicting stars both found in the Flying Star and Purple Flower Star. Having said that, if I were to say whether it is a good year or not, I’d say that it is generally going to be a good year.

The Flying Star formula indicates that you have the wealth luck this year, however, this calls for some strict discipline and vigilance on your end, because you are also somehow affected by the Flying Star #7, which is the Violent Star or what some people will call as the Robbery Star. Because of this your wealth luck will tend to be average, and you will see that you have to work harder for you to get the wealth that you aspire for. It can be ‘dangling’ in front of you but not easily attainable. But look on the bright side and all you have to do is enhance it and then cure the negative star.

Career luck is also a little promising, however, you’ll find yourself in a lonely path to success. Meaning you won’t be able to rely others except on your own hard work. As I said it’ll be a complicated year, you’ll find yourself on your own when it comes to success, however, when facing some trouble you’ll find helpful people, but their involvement can be a little fleeting.

Your Purple Flower Star Astrology indicates that you have the Six Danger Star. The 6 Danger star despite of the name doesn’t mean that there are six different kinds of danger. However, it is still that one should be wary of because it is a star that may bring about feelings of loneliness and depression. The star at the very least will make you ill tempered or moody.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Carry or wear the 3-Legged Toad as a pendant. This is a very powerful Feng Shui enhancer or cure for people who are unable to attain the wealth luck that is already at hand.

The pendant that gave my friend is similar to this one. Wearing a three-legged toad pendant is also very auspicious.

The pendant that gave my friend is similar to this one. Wearing a three-legged toad pendant is also very auspicious.

Wear the image of Sun Wukong or Kuan Kong (Guan Gong) to protect you from the Violent Star or from any harm. Both Sun Wukong and Kuan Kong can also help you achieve better career. To know more about this you can read my post about Sun Wukong and Kuan Kong.

'The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven' Monkey King called Sun Wukong is a very powerful wealth and protector god that's both highly revered in Taoism and Buddhism.

‘The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven’ Monkey King called Sun Wukong is a very powerful wealth and protector god that’s both highly revered in Taoism and Buddhism.

Wear the image of Kuan Yin or Goddess Tara or the symbolic scripts – OM AH HUM, Medicine Buddha Mantra, or the seed syllable TAM to counter the negative effects of the Six Danger Star.

This is from my personal collection. The reason I love this pendants so much is because it has a inscription of the Heart Sutra at the back. I wear the smaller one everyday.

Since the Five Yellow Star is in the Center this year. It is also advisable that all of us safeguard ourselves from this star. We don’t know when we’re going to be in the center of a house, or building, etc. It is advisable for all us to wear the Five Element Pagoda.

FOURTH, THE RABBIT…

Is in charge of his/her luck this 2013 – year of the Water Snake. This is the year when you need to a little scholastic in dealing with your wealth and career. Meaning, you have to study everything that you get into for you to be able to achieve success and wealth luck. The appearance of the Jade Hall Star as shown by the Purple Flower Star Astrology indicates that your scholastic luck is further enhanced. Rabbits who are in the field of education will find themselves ‘shining’ in their field.

The sad thing is the Flying Star #3, which is the Argumentative Star, is in your life palace now. This means you’ll find yourself getting into a lot of arguments and fight. If you are not careful, this might escalate into a legal problem. You will need to think twice before you act or react.

The Purple Flower Star Astrology also indicates that you have the Deferred Guest Star. This star is harmless unless activated by the person who has this star in his or her life palace. The Rabbit has this star so it is best not to activate this star. How does one activate this star? This star is activated when one goes into a highly Yin place such as a funeral or a cemetery. When the Deferred Guest Star is activated it will absorb all the negative energies that are present in the highly Yin place and it may create havoc in your life.

A Rabbit will also have a balance romantic luck. It will be positive but not too great that they have to worry about third party involvement.

Feng Shui Recommendations:

Ruyi to enhance career luck and wear an image of Yellow Dzambhala to enhance wealth luck.

Yellow Dzambhala

Yellow Dzambhala

If you’re single and want to look for a partner, you can enhance the romantic luck by wearing a double happiness symbol or a pair of mandarin ducks pendant.

To counter the Argumentative Star carry or wear an image of the Ksitigarbha Fireball.

Again the best way to avoid activating the Deferred Guest Star is to avoid going to highly Yin places like the funeral house, hospital or cemetery. However, if this totally unavoidable wear the symbol of the Kalachakra as pendant. Truth be told, if you have this star it is good to simply wear the symbol of Kalachakra because you’ll never know when you’ll get yourself into a Yin place, especially when you travel a lot.

Wear the Lung – Ta (also known as the Wind Horse) to avoid the slight bump brought about by the two clashing pillars of the year. You don’t need this if you have the complete elements in your Bazi. But wearing one won’t do any harm but it will continue to bless you with continued success. This is especially true for people born in the year of the RAT, TIGER, DRAGON, SNAKE, SHEEP/GOAT, MONKEY, ROOSTER, and PIG.

Since the Five Yellow Star is in the Center this year. It is also advisable that all of us safeguard ourselves from this star. We don’t know when we’re going to be in the center of a house, or building, etc. It is advisable for all us to wear the Five Element Pagoda.

2013 – Year of the Water Snake Chinese Animal Zodiac Feng Shui Forceast: An Introduction (Part 1)

In the past two posts we talked about the general Feng Shui forecast of the year 2013, which is the Year of the Water Snake.

I’m sure a lot of you want to know about the Feng Shui Forecast base on your Chinese birth signs, which is base on an Animal Zodiac.

First, allow me to state once again, just like last year, that while this is helpful, an accurate forecast can only be possible if one is to have your Bazi/Paht Chee. Nevertheless, this general forecast will still give you a bird’s eye view of your general luck.

Also for this year, I’ve decided to push the accuracy of this general forecast a little further by incorporating another branch of the Feng Shui called Purple Flower Star Astrology also known as the Purple Star Astrology. Please note that in Bazi Reading, the more advanced Feng Shui consultants almost always incorporate this technique. However, this is much more complicated to discuss that most of the Feng Shui consultants will just skip mentioning it.

Last year, when I made my 2012 YEAR OF THE WATER DRAGON FORECAST, I didn’t include this method, thus I was able to write my forecast at an earlier date. However, I thought I’d include this now to have a more accurate forecast. Incorporating this took a longer time for me to calculate everything but I think it is also better than just solely relying on the Flying Star with 8 Mansions method because the truth there are a lot of other stars that affects our luck.

I’ve decided to mention this now, because you’ll see that my forecast here will be a little different with the other more famous or commercially available forecast. That is most of them will solely use the Flying Star with the 8 Mansions method to do a general forecast.

The question is are they wrong in not including the Purple Flower Star Astrology method? The answer is NO. It works and it’ll give you a guide, but I just thought to incorporate this because it will give a more accurate forecast. Having said that, it is still a general guideline or overview of one’s luck. An accurate forecast can only be achieved with an accurate and methodological analysis of one’s Bazi or Paht Chee. But just the same, a basic guideline is better than none at all…

I have to warn you though that some of the name of the stars in the Purple Flower Star Astrology / Purple Star Astrology might sound funny, ridiculous or weird, that is because of the limitations of a good translation. One other thing that you’ll notice is that unlike the Flying Star Method wherein a single star can affect two or three different animal zodiac, the Purple Star Astrology is life palace specific and therefore a single star won’t affect more than one animal zodiac.

Reading through the forecast, some of you will wonder whether how you’re suppose to wear all the recommended Feng Shui charms/amulets. That was also my dilemma before, because some people will laugh at me how much pendant I have to wear because it looks like I have a very small tit at the middle of my chest or it looks like I might break my neck because of the heavy Feng Shui charm. It is also irritating how some will recommend a different Feng Shui cure or enhancers every year, which become an endless cycle of buying different Feng Shui charms/amulets every year. Because of this, I decided to design and make my own Feng Shui pendant that incorporates most of the cures or enhancers that I know we will need every year. These are the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT and the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

Front image of the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT is that of - THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN SUN WUKONG.

Front image of the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT is that of – THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN SUN WUKONG.

At the back of the Wealth and Master Protection Pendant is the Chinese character for the GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN, and the image of the 3 Celestial Guardians (namely the Fu Dog, Piyao, and Chilin), at the bottom are the Five Element Pagoda and the Ksitigarbha Fireball. This is the only pendant that you'll get that has all the essential Feng Shui cures. I decided to just put them all in one pendant so that you don't have to wear a lot and spend a lot of money.

The WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT has the image of the Medicine Buddha on the front and the Medicine Buddha Mantra symbolic script at the back.

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.

Wearing the 2 pendants has been a lot of help and now I really don’t feel like I have to break my neck wearing a lot of different stuff just to cure the bad stars and enhance the good stars. While the pendant that I designed is already ideal, admittedly, some of you will still need to have more than just the two pendants that I designed. Note that I first made these pendants for myself and my family until friends started ordering them also and when I started my blog, several of you, my readers has also ordered it. These pendants are made to order, and the biggest problem that I have now with them is how to make them more affordable by making it thinner. I’m still constantly looking for a jeweler who can make it more affordable by making it lighter.

2013 – Year of the Water Snake Bazi and Flying Star Feng Shui Forecast: A Balance Year with Fresh Energies (Part 2)

Published Disyembre 22, 2012 by jptan2012

In my last post, I wrote about what’s install for 2013 Year of the Water Snake, mostly base on its Bazi or Paht Chee chart. Although, I also mentioned about the Flying Star flying on its original position in the Lo Shu, which happens every 9 years, I wasn’t able to expound on it. I will discuss about it now.

If you’ve read my 2012 YEAR OF THE WATER DRAGON FENG SHUI FLYING STAR FORECAST, you’ll know that these stars basically will have the same effect in whatever location they may fly. So, what one can do is just familiarize themselves with the effects in whatever location they fly into. However, for this year, since they are flying back into their original position, which is a positive thing, some of the stars might have a slightly different effect. It will still retain its intrinsic effect but for some signs it might have some added or lesser degree of effect.

First, what are Flying Stars? Flying Stars or Xuan Xong is basically a discipline or branch of Feng Shui that studies the annual movement ‘stars’ or chi of a location that may affect your profession, health, career, finance/wealth, physical energy, psychological energy, spiritual energy. In Feng Shui the energy of your house and of your workplace is as important as your animal sign. The truth is Flying Star is also applied to the village, town, barangay, municipal, city, country and for the really good ones they can actually foretell the ‘fortune’ of the country by applying the Flying Stars concept in the world map.

The founder of Flying Stars assigned a specific number to each of this energy, and succeeding generation assigned a name depending on the effects of this energy. The name may vary a little from one Feng Shui consultant to another but they’re basically the same. It is also important to understand that the Tai Sui (Tai Suey) God and the 3 Killings are not part of the Flying Star concept. However, in discussing and determining the Flying Star of the house we include both the Tai Suey and the Three Killings in the equation because they also occupy the one of the nine squares in the Lo Shu Square.

This is the Flying Star Chart of the year. Image was lifted from Google Images.

The nine Lo Shu Square are – EAST, WEST, NORTH, SOUTH, SOUTHEAST, SOUTHWEST, NORTHEAST, NORTHWEST, CENTER.

To understand more about the Flying Star, I suggest check out Wikipedia. They offer a brief but clear explanation of the Flying Star. They’re also a lot of books that solely deal with Flying Stars Feng Shui.

 THE EAST HAS THE FLYING STAR #3 (ARGUMENTATIVE STAR)

Effects: May cause relationship problems, numerous bickering, litigation, quarrels and problems/conflicts with people in authority. This will also affect the eldest son, and whether his room is one east side or not, you will see the eldest son to be impatient. This year the Rabbit is also greatly affected by this star.

Feng Shui Cure: Ksitigarbha Fireball (place this is in the East section of the house or room). For the people born under the sign of the Rabbit or the eldest son or if your room is in the East section of the house you can wear or carry the Ksitigarbha Fireball pendant/key chain. Wearing a Maitreya Buddha or Happy Fat Buddha pendant will also help.

The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT that I design also has the Ksitigarbha Fireball.

The Ksitigarbha Fireball is a pearl on the hand of  Ksitigarbha Buddha that fires up when there are negative energies.

THE SOUTHEAST HAS THE FLYING STAR #4 (ROMANCE AND SCHOLASTIC STAR)

Effects: Romance luck is heightened if your room is on this side of the house. For single people, you might have the possibility of finding love. For partnered people, you might find your love getting more ‘fragrant’. However, for married couple the effect might be two fold. First, you might find yourself loving each other more deeply, but there might also be the possibility of a third party getting involved. It is also called Scholastic Star because it also has a good effect on the scholastic pursuits of a person. Meaning, students may become more studious, and professionals might find that it’s easier to understand documents. This star affects both the Dragons and the Snake.

Feng Shui Enhancer: For single person you can put a Rose Quartz Mandarin Ducks on your bedside. For married couple, you can hang the Double Happiness on your headboard. To safeguard yourself from a third party, tie an Amethyst Geode with Red String on the foot of your bed.

Additional Feng Shui Tip: Do not put any water feature on this side of the house because it might create a sexual scandal or infidelity problem. A water drainage is considered as a water feature. 

THE SOUTH HAS THE FLYING STAR #9 (MULTIPLYING AND FUTURE PROSPERITY STAR)

Effects: Technically speaking, this is neither a good or bad star. The power of this star is to let you reap whatever you sow. This star basically multiplies whatever karma you accumulate. If you do more good things you’ll have more good luck in the future, but if you continue to do a lot of bad things, you multiply your negative karma as well. The Horse is also affected by this star thus it will be good if he/she can be more conscious of the things he/she does.

THE SOUTHWEST HAS THE FLYING STAR #2 (ILLNESS STAR)

Effects: As the name implies, this star causes illness and to some extent it can be fatal or terminal. Sometime, this star can also cause some accident that may render you invalid for a long time if not permanently.  For this year, this star also affects people born under the sign of the Monkey and Sheep.

Feng Shui Cure: Wulou (also spelled as Wu Lou) or Holy Gourd or Image of the Medicine Buddha. For people who stays in this section of the house or office, and for the middle sons and people born under the sign of the Monkey or Sheep it is advisable for them to wear a Jade Wu Lou pendant and/or a Medicine Buddha pendant (preferably with Mantra).

Just want to share that the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT has the image of the Medicine Buddha on the front and the Medicine Buddha’s Mantra at the back. This pendant was not available at that time I wrote about the 2012 Feng Shui forecast.

THE WEST HAS THE FLYING STAR #7 (VIOLENT STAR)

Effects: This star brings hostility and loss through robbery, theft, or even manipulation. This year it will also affect people born under the sing of the Rooster.

Feng Shui Cure: One of the following items – Image of Sun Wukong (aka Monkey God), Image of Kuan Kong (also known as Kuan Ti, Guan Ti, Kuan Te Ya, Guan Te Ya, Guan Gong), Image Elephant with Rhinoceros. For people who are staying on this side have the house or office, or for people born under the sign of the Rooster, it is advisable to wear an image of Sun Wukong, Kuan Kong, or a Mantra Pendant. The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT that has the image of THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN – SUN WUKONG, and the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT that has the image of Kuan Kong are also advisable.

THE NORTHWEST HAS THE FLYING STAR #6 (HEAVEN’S BLESSING AND MENTOR STAR)

Effects: This star helps set the ‘tone’ of the year for people whose office, or room are in the Northwest side o the house or building. Meaning, if you continuously do more good the more blessed you’re going to be. This also means that if you’re Animal Zodiac luck is not so good like the Goat, you will continuously have help from Heaven (Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Deities, Immortals, or Saints). This also means that you’ll be lucky enough to have people who will help you achieve your goal.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Crystal Balls/ 6 White Jade tied with a Red String / Invite an image of Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity or Immortal. People born under the sign of Dog or Pig who are affected by this star can enhance it by wearing an image of Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity or Immortal.

Effects: This star or chi brings luck to your endeavors.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Victory Banner / Lung – Ta or Wind Horse / Water Feature in the North side unless its in the bedroom.

Note that the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT has the images of both the Victory Banner and Lung – Ta or Wind Horse.

THE NORTHEAST HAS THE FLYING STAR #8 (WEALTH STAR)

Effects:  It gives you abundance and to some a ‘bottomless’ pocket filled with money. This star is not just about money wealth but this is also about abundance.  This year people born under the sign of the Ox and Tiger are blessed by this star.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Faux Gold Coins or Bars or Ingots, Wealth Deity (Maitreya Buddha or Kuan Kong or Sun Wukong). The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT has the image of Sun Wukong, and the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT has the image of Kuan Kong.

This is from my personal collection. I wear this pendant everyday. In choosing an image of the Happy Fat Buddha to be worn as a pendant, always look for the face. Make sure that it has happy jolly face.

THE CENTER HAS THE FLYING STAR #5 (FIVE YELLOW STAR)

Effects: The 5-Yellow Star is the worst of all negative stars! It is said to bring 5 different kinds of misfortunes! What’s bad it runs in the center of the house or building.

Feng Shui Cure: AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE MOVE OUT FROM THIS SECTION OR DON’T USE THIS SECTION. You can also use the Five Element Pagoda (5-Element Pagoda), Kalachakra. For people who stays in this section of the house or building, as mentioned, please move out or if that is not possible, please wear the Five Element Pagoda pendant or a Kalachakra pendant. I just would like to share that THE WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION has the image of 5 – ELEMENT PAGODA, while the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT has the image of the KALACHAKRA.

There are different versions of the 5-Element Pagoda. However, personally the original version and a small one, I believe, is okay and powerful enough to counter the effects of the 5-Yellow Star.

The Kalachakra Symbol is a powerful protection symbol. It is actually ten syllable mantra compressed into one symbol. The mantra is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, it is usually chanted with OM AH HUM thus making the complete mantra as OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. It is because off this that I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

Additional note on the Flying Star #5 aka Five Yellow Star, while it’s the most dreadful star of all the negative star, for this year, because all the stars are in their original position, the Flying Star #5 will not have any bad effect on some signs, on the contrary, they will bring some wealth benefit to these animals signs.

They are the following:

MALE: 1941 and 1977 Snake, 1950 and 1986 Tiger, 1959 and 1995 Pig, 1968 and 2004 Monkey.

FEMALE: 1936, 1972 and 2008 Rat, 1945 and 1981 Rooster, 1954 and 1990 Horse, 1963 and 1999 Rabbit

In Feng Shui, enhancing the auspicious stars really encouraged, however, consultants and experts will stress that it’s more important to subdue the negative stars of the Flying Stars. If you’re on a tight budget, you need to subdue the negative stars first before enhancing the auspicious ones.

Other than the 9 Flying Stars, we also must take note and watch out for the Tai Suey (also spelled as Tai Sui) and the Three Killings, which is a directly translation of the Chinese words (Saam Sat or Saam Sart).

Technically speaking, they are not part of the Flying Stars, but we always take note of their position in relation to the Flying Stars because they are also very important in determining the luck of a person or place and it affects the outcome of the Flying Stars. Take for example this year. The SouthEast has the auspicious Flying Star #4, however, because of the Tai Suey, it might make it harder to get the luck of the said Flying Star, or it might even totally negate it.

Who is General Xu Dan?General Xu Dan is an historical person who became a Taoist immortal. He was in during the Han Dynasty in Ping Ling, Shaanxi, China. He is said to be a courageous, patriotic, generous and revered general who is skilled in martial arts. He is just one of the 60 Tai Suey Gods.

Who is General Xu Dan?
General Xu Dan is an historical person who became a Taoist immortal. He was in during the Han Dynasty in Ping Ling, Shaanxi, China. He is said to be a courageous, patriotic, generous and revered general who is skilled in martial arts. He is just one of the 60 Tai Suey Gods.

First, the Tai Suey. Taoists, where most of how we do Feng Shui originated, believes that a year is ruled by a certain God called Tai Suey or Tai Sui or Grand Duke in English. This year’s Tai Suey God is General Xu Dan. However, you have to understand a little about Taoist Gods for you to be able to understand why we have to be careful in dealing with the Tai Suey.

Taoist Gods are like humans with supernatural powers. They have magical and godly powers but they may also have human temperament and they also have characters and personalities. Meaning, they can get angry with our acts, they can be disturbed and get angry with us and thus render a punishment to us, or maybe the simple act of them getting irritated with us might create some misfortune. However, they can also be appease and happy with us and render us some good blessings, or again, the simple act of the Tai Suey getting happy with us will create some good fortune.

This year the Tai Suey is in the SouthEast. To be specific it flies in the SE3 section, but let us not bother ourselves with the specific degree, it’s enough to know that the Tai Suey is in the SE because it’s power will directly affect all the SE section. Be it either the SE section of the room, house, office, building, city, state, province, country, or world. If you notice the year 2012 brought a lot of tension in the China – Philippines relationship. That is because we are in the SE, and the disputed islands are in the SE, not to mention about the other countries involve in the disputed islands. This happened because the year the Tai Suey and the Five Yellow Star are in the SE. Having said that in the year 2012 might see some easing up of the tension because the Five Yellow is no longer in the SE, however, it might also create a war if the Tai Suey, who is still is the SouthEast is not appease.

In the same manner, everybody who is in the SE section of his or her house, room, office, or building will have to take some precaution. It’s very important that you don’t do any any renovations in this sector. If possible, do vacate this section. However, if that is not possible you can always put an image of a pair of Pi Yao in that section. For those who stay in that section of the house, or office, or building, it is also advisable to wear an image of the Piyao (also spelled or called as Pi Yao, Pixiu or Pi Xiu). This is because the Pi Yao or Pi Xiu appeases the Tai Sui or the Grand Duke.

 

Piyao4However, for this year I would like to stress that the Philippines is in a compromising situation because we are in the Southeast section of Asia. This implies that we might face some turbulent year. This might come in the form of war, political unrest, or natural calamities. Having the romance and scholastic star when taken in the perspective of the country might not be very good, because this might imply political extra – marital affairs, which means it can mean that the president might not know who are his real people and that some people in the cabinet or elected official might create some chaos. Also, some people might think that they are the best person for a certain position thus it might create political unrest or chaos because power grabbing. Furthermore,  the center portion of the country must take extra precaution because of the Five Yellow Star. As mentioned this is the worst star to have. Obviously, the center of the country is Visayas (Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao), this can mean that Visayas might be besieged by some natural calamities. While it’s difficult to say what are the natural calamities because Feng Shui is unable to determine the specific problem that might occur. However, if you look at the year’s Bazi or Paht Chee, although it’s a balanced chart, the strong elements are Earth, Water, and Wood. This MIGHT mean that the calamity might have something to do with these three elements. Meaning the natural calamity can be a drought, or a typhoon, or earthquake. I really can’t be sure which one but these three might be the possible effects of the combined effect of the Tai Suey or Tai Sui and the 5 Yellow Star.

Next is the Three Killings. Unlike the Tai Suey or the Five Yellow Star, which we must avoid, the 3 Killings is something that we must confront. Meaning, the best way to deal with it is to face the Three Killings and not turn our back against it. If the 3 Killings is not confronted then it can wreak three kinds if misfortunes to a person. The three misfortunes are accident, financial loss, and illness.

You can protect yourself from the Three Killings by facing the direction of the Three Killings that is in the East or staying in the East section of the house, this means, the people who are in the West are the ones who are directly affected by the 3 Killings. Another best way to deal and subdue the Three Killings is to place the image of the Three Celestial Guardians in the East section of the room, house, office, and building. Those who are staying in the West, East section of their house, office, building, room must wear the image of Three Celestial Guardians to protect themselves from the effects of the 3 Killings.

The 3 Celestials Guardians are the Fu Dog, Chi Lin (also spelled as Qi Lin or Chilin), and the Piyao (also called or spelled as Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu).

Personally, I just wear my WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT, which has the image of Sun Wukong. I’ve extensively talked about The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven, Sun Wukong. However, given that we don’t have enough time at that time I didn’t discuss one another aspect of Sun Wukong. The Monkey God, Sun Wukong, before he was subdued by Kuan Yin (Quan Yin), The Goddess of Mercy and by Shakyamuni Buddha was the only immortal who won a fight against all the Tai Suey. Thus aside from having the image of the Piyao, which is incorporated in the 3 Celestial Guardians, Sun Wukong is also a very good protector from the possible wrath of the Tai Suey. The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT is a pendant that has the image of Sun Wukong, a protector and wealth immortal/god, which is also a good cure against the Flying Star#7, and it also has the Piyao which is incorporated in the Three Celestial Guardians and it also has the image of the 5-Element Pagoda which is really good for the deadliest Flying Star the Five Yellow Star, and it also has the Ksitigarbha Fireball which is a cure against the Flying Star #3.

Get Wealth Abundance and Financial Security Through THE WEALTH GRANTING TARA!!!

Published Disyembre 3, 2012 by jptan2012

One of the posts that I’ve ever written here in this blog that has a lot of traffic is about THE GODDESS TARA. Today, allow me to introduce to you another powerful manifestation of the GODDESS TARA, which is THE WEALTH GRANTING TARA!

If you wish to know more about GODDESS TARA, do read my earlier post entitled – GODDESS TARA, THE MOTHER OF SWIFT LIBERATION.

As the name implies, WEALTH GRANTING TARA is a manifestation of GODDESS TARA that helps grants material needs. Like the root manifestation of GODDESS TARA, WEALTH GRANTING TARA is also green in color. The difference is that the WEALTH GRANTING TARA has four (4) arms and hands. Another manifestation of the WEALTH GRANTING TARA is that of an eight (8) arms and hands, however, for this posts let’s focus on the four-armed and hand manifestation.

She is usually depicted as a TARA that is seated on a lotus, with fine adornments. She is usually seen as wearing a bejeweled headdress, bejeweled necklace, bracelets, and anklets.

In her hands are a mala (which signifies that whoever chants her mantra will be blessed), an Uptula flower (which signifies her power), a holy text (which signifies that she’ll grant material and wealth blessing to those who follow Buddhism and that she grants wisdom for those who are in need of it), and her other right hand shows the wish granting mudra (which signifies her power to grant wishes and blessings).

The best way to tap into the power and blessing of WEALTH GRANTING TARA is for us to chant her mantra. For those who are yet familiar about mantras please read my post entitled – MANTRA: THE INSTRUMENT TO TAP THE POWER OF SYMBOLIC SOUND, SCRIPT, AND THOUGHT.

WEALTH GRANTING TARA is not a very popular but very powerful manifestaion of GODDESS TARA. There are very few images of the WEALTH GRANTING TARA in the market or on the net. So far, one of the best rendition is that of Lillian Too's WEALTH GRANTING TARA, which is available in WOFS or World of Feng Shui.

WEALTH GRANTING TARA’s mantra is – OM TARE TUTTARE TURE DANAM ME DADA SOHA.

Chant her mantra 108 times a day for you to continuously get her blessings, especially when you are in n need of financial assistance.
