Understanding the Power of Jade – Powerful Holy Jade Items for Wealth, Health, Harmony and Protection!

Published Hunyo 13, 2018 by jptan2012

jade-zoom-1I have been receiving a lot of messages encouraging me to continue this blog. However, it is already a “done deal” that this blog will end once it reaches the 1000th post. This is also the reason why my most recent articles focus more on empowering you to do your own Feng Shui and to understanding what needs to be done in case there is a Feng Shui blunder.

Some people are also asking about getting amulets after I have ended this blog. Well, it is possible that amulets will find their way to you if you are ready for it. However, you have to understand that sometimes you need to be able to understand when that time has come, sometimes an amulet that comes your way now because you need it will not present itself again in the future should you decide to let go of that opportunity.

Speaking of amulets, today’s article is about some special amulets. I think this is something being made available to us by Guru Lama because of the pending ending of this blog.

Those who have been with me in this journey of Feng Shui blogging right when it started will know that one of the most powerful natural Feng Shui tool from nature aside from the metal gold is the power of gemstones. For the Chinese, the foremost of all these gemstones is the jade.

I have written about the power of jade. In fact, the Piyao (also called or spelled as Pi Yao, Pixie, Pi Xie, Pi Xiu, or Pixiu) is only truly effective when it is made of gold or jade. Needless to say, real jade because there are so many fake jades in the market. It is not an exaggeration when I say that most jade Piyaos in the market now are made of fake jade. Of course, the most powerful ones are those that are blessed by a high lama or monk, and are made of empowered gold like the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO or empowered jades. They are empowered thru mantras, sutras, and/or pujas performed by Bhiksus or Bhiksunis or high lamas.

It also has fierce but still friendly face, this indicates that while you can be fierce in business or work, you will still gain the support and admiration of the people around you. This also means that you can you charm to get to your wealth luck.


HISTORICAL POWERFUL MYSTICAL USES OF JADE

Let me go back to the power of jade.

Contrary to popular belief that a jade is a Chinese stone, jade is actually used in various cultures and nations and Ancient Civilization or Ancient Societies, but I think it was given it highest regard by the Chinese. But history shows that jade is revered by a lot of cultures. Not to mention jade is also found in different countries like Mexico, India, Canada, New Zealand, and a lot more. However, they jade experts believes that superior jade is found in China, Russia, and Myanmar, formerly known as Burma.

These countries who also had the jade believes in the power of the jade.

In fact, the ancient Mexicans has very high regard for the jade. Like the Chinese they make that jade is use in the carving of their gods. In fact, Kukulcan and Quetzalcoatl, the supreme gods of the ancient Mexicans are traditionally depicted with jade in their eyes and navel. They believe that if jade is not used in their eyes and their navel the images are just plain simple images and will not be able to channel the energies of the said god.

It was also a custom of the Mayans to place small pieces of jade in the mouth of their ruler the Jaguar Bird at his death. It is said that the jade will act as the receptacle of the dead ruler’s spirit. The Mayans also associate the jade with water (money), vegetation (wealth), the sky (heavenly blessings), life (chi or energy), renewal and rebirth. You will notice that this is very similar to the Chinese. If you remember a previous article, it is customary for the Chinese to put a jade cicada in the mouth of a person who has just died to ensure good rebirth.

The belief of putting a jade in the mouth of the dead was shared by other ancient cultures. Some of you might find it surprising the jade was found in the tombs or even in the pyramids of Egyptian rulers. They were place at the heart of the Egyptian ruler. No definite study was made to understand why use jade as representative of the heart, that we can only surmise that they believe that jade is the stone that can aid good rebirth and capture the good essence of the heart of a person as the Chinese belief states.

Furthermore, in Mesoamerica, a jade is considered so precious and powerful that people of the “lower” class bracket are not allowed to own a jade. Because they believe that this will make the person powerful. A person of the “lower” social class bracket was found to have a jade, no matter how small, they would be immediately executed. Many books have written about this, but none has written about it as extensively as Peterson Fredrick wrote in his book “Ancient Mexico: Introduction to the Pre-Hispanic Cultures.”

According to Peterson Fredrick, the Aztecs has a law for a “man of low quality” to own a jade, because the stone was reserved for high priests and nobility. It is also considered as one of the most important offering, still much like what Chinese Buddhists do in offering jades and gold these days. That jade is used as a special sacred offering is fully evident in Cenoté and Chichen Itzá.

In the ancient Southwest Pacific, they believe that when you give a jade to a person, you also give a part of your soul. Thus, it is only given to a loved one or parent to child or vice versa.


CHINESE BUDDHIST AND TAOISTS CONTINUE TO USE JADE FOR ITS POWERFUL MYSTICAL PROPERTIES

But as mentioned, nobody has used jade and revered it as much as the Chinese does. Chinese Buddhist and/or Taoists believes that an image of a Buddha, or Bodhisattva, or deity or god made of jade is superior to other images. Contemporary Buddhist monks try to downplay this belief because they don’t want people to have a misplaced belief that non – jade images are worthless, but to this day a lot of Buddhist monks believes this to be the case.

From ancient times to this day, the Chinese believes that everyone should own at least one jade. The stone will serve to protect you, bless you with wealth and health. I for one owns several pieces of jade, including a very rare piece of Chung Kwei black jade. My black jade is only one of the two black jades in the country. On top of owning a black jade, every single member of the family has at least one small piece of jade. The younger generation are all gifted with a jade, but of course, my generation and the older generation all have several pieces. I have mentioned several times in this blog my jade Kuan Yin pendant and several pieces of Piyao jade, I still wear this jade everyday even though I already have the very powerful SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO. On top of that I also have a jade ring set in gold. Sharing all these not to brag about my jade collection, but to show how much value and belief I have in a jade. In fact, Lillian Too, who perhaps is the world’s most famous Feng Shui writer has repeatedly mentioned and given credit to her jade bangle for her success and wealth.

Chung Kwei Black Jade

This is a rare black jade pendant image of Chung Kwei. Was fortunate enough to find one in Beijing, China in a small shop. Remember in choosing a Chong Kwei or Chung Kwei or Zhung Kwei or Zhong Kwei, always get a something that’s made of a black stone or gold. Otherwise, it might not be very effective.

But more than success and wealth, a jade is also a very good protection stone. I remember, when we were still young, my sister had an accident in school. She feels from the stairs, she was not hurt, even though the stairs were made of hard stone. Her jade bangle broke into two though.

I can go on and on and on about how powerful a jade is. In fact, one can write a book simply talking about its mystical properties and wonderful stories from people who experienced these energies. But one of the most powerful way to know this is simply by experiencing the power of a jade. Regular readers of this blog know that I always say that each and every person should at least own one piece of jade.


GETTING TO KNOW THE GEMSTONE JADE

Now another misconception about jade is that it is always green. That’s not true. There are brown jade, yellow jade, white jade, pink jade, purple or violet jade, orange jade, red jade, and as mentioned the rare black jade. But of course, the most common one is a green jade. But even the green jade has various shade. There is the ice jade, which is a clear type or opaque type of a very light almost white jade, there is the natural green jade, there is the imperial jade, the ink jade, which a lot of scrupulous sellers will tell you is the much-coveted black jade but is not the same as that of the black jade.

NOTE: AN INK JADE WILL LOOK BLACK, UNTIL YOU FLASH SOME LIGHT AT THE BACK WHERE IT WILL SHOW IT’S TRUE GREEN COLOR. THE BLACK JADE IS NOT REALLY BLACK BUT GRAYISH WITH WHITE. SEE THE PHOTO OF MY BLACK CHUNG KWEI.

One point of concern is that it is quite difficult to distinguish a real jade from a fake jade, and also quite difficult to distinguish a low-grade jade to a high-grade jade unless you have developed the skill to see it. Some people will also say that aventurine is a jade, aventurine is aventurine and it is a not a jade. Chrysophrase and Dioptase are two other green stones that are very jade like but are more porous. A lot of sellers will tell you that these stones are high quality jade but if you have developed the eye for real jade, or if you got them and wear them you will soon notice that they are not real jade.

Jade actually only has two major varieties, and they are nephrite and jadeite. Of all the jade, other than the black jade, it’s the Burmese imperial jade.


POWERFUL HOLY JADE ITEMS FOR HEALTH, WEALTH, HARMONY AND PROTECTION

Those of you who live in China, Honking, Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia, Nepal, Myanmar, etc. Knows that it is customary for Buddhists who have been blessed or who are asking for a favor from the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas to donate gold such as rings, necklaces, or even gold bars or gold coins. Recently, some of these, after being empowered, were again made available to the public by way of the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO. However, it has to be noted that it is also EQUALLY customary to donate jade and/or other gemstones. But more often than not jade is offered because a lot of Buddhists considers jade to be a superior jade as compared to emerald, ruby, and even diamonds. It is only the best first-class jades that are donated to the temple.

These jades and other gemstones are also put at the foot of an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva where they receive strong positive chi from the chanting of mantras, reciting of sutras, and pujas performed by Bhiksus, Bhiksunis and/or high lamas like Guru Lama. These jades are then included in the images of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas. However, Guru Lama’s temple has acquired so many of these jades, and people are still continuously donating high quality jade to the temple. So, Guru Lama thought of making these a FEW of these jades available to the public to help raise funds for food for novice monks, building temples, and for their charity work. By doing these the ones who will received these jades in exchange of stipulated amount for exchange of energies will also receive not just high-quality jade but also comes with the jade the energies from the pujas, chanting of mantras, and recitation of sutras.

These jades are going to be made available to the public so that they will be blessed. Some of these jades are gem quality and thus they will be made thru a ring with a mantra. It will come in different sizes so hopefully all those who are interested will find one that will fit them.

But more than that, there are 15 of almost century old jade ingot. You all know that an ingot is one of the most powerful symbol to welcome wealth, money or financial luck in Feng Shui. Made from either jade or gold it becomes more powerful. But if it comes from the temple who has been empowering it for almost a century it should be extremely magical. There are 15 of these holy jade ingots, but only 3 are being made available thru this blog. Having this holy jade ingot will definitely bring in a lot of wealth luck to a family or person where this ingot is. This is especially highly recommendable who have their own house and/or are moving to their own house/new house.

holy jade ingot 1

This HOLY JADE INGOT is a very powerful tool to bring in wealth luck. Specially good for those moving to a new house or already have their own home. This jade is roughly a century old jade. The actual size of this is about 3 inches in length. Approximately.  Apologies for the amateur photo. The monks who took the picture are not camera savvy.

On top of that, there 3 holy jade teapots. These holy jade teapots are about half – a – century old, and one will be made available thru this blog. For those who are familiar with Feng Shui will know that a teapot is also a powerful wealth symbol and harmony symbol. Those who are running a business and wish to close a deal can put rock salt in the holy jade teapot for 7 days, then put water in it and pour the water onto your head on the day of business transaction. This is also a powerful house cleansing tool. The process of which will be shared with the person who is lucky enough to get this.

This HOLY JADE TEAPOT is around half – a – century old. Just like the HOLY JADE INGOT, this is hand carved and hand polished. Very good wealth luck and financial luck enhancer and also good for powerful protection ritual. Also very good harmony Feng Shui tool. Apologies for the amateur photo. The monks who took the picture are not camera savvy.

This HOLY JADE TEAPOT is around half – a – century old. Just like the HOLY JADE INGOT, this is hand carved and hand polished. Very good wealth luck and financial luck enhancer and also good for powerful protection ritual. Also very good harmony Feng Shui tool. You can pool rock salt, sea salt, pink himlayan salt, or black lava salt inside. Apologies for the amateur photo. The monks who took the picture are not camera savvy.

Of course, there a few more jades, some are rings, or gem quality that can be made into a ring or pendant. There are different images also like the Cicada, Piyao, Happy Buddha. Naturally all these are empowered thru the pujas, chanting of mantras and recitation of sutras performed by Bhiksus, Bhiksunis and other high lamas like Guru Lama.

These are all very old pieces, and you can actually see some signs of age to this holy pieces. I think it’s really part of the charisma of these pieces. Imagine these pieces receiving all the energies from the pujas, mantras, and sutras for decades!!!!

The truth some of these jade have been made available to a small selected group of readers in the past. Either with exchange of energies of or as a gift.

But this time it will be made available to everybody.

However, please note that these are going to be on a first – come, first – served basis and are limited. Also, please note that not because you want it and has the means to send the monetary exchange of energies you will have it. Guru Lama will decide if you can have it base on your birthdate, this is especially true for the holy jade ingot and the holy jade teapot. For the others, Guru Lama will decide what you can have base on your birthdate or whether you’ll be allowed to have them.

To understand about the exchange of energies, please read the article called THE EVOLUTION OF ACQUIRING AN AMULET.

Chant – A – Mantra (3d): Daily Mantras to Chant – Health, Wealth, Liberty from Negativities!

Published Hulyo 14, 2016 by jptan2012

Yes! I chant a lot of mantras everyday. And while at first it might seem quite tedious once you get the hang of it, it will be quite easy to chant even if there are a lot of mantras to chant. But don’t get me wrong, when I say quite easy it will still take you some time, and it is perfectly worth it to invest some time everyday because the blessings that we receive simply by chanting mantras is quite enormous. It is more powerful when one chants it under deep meditation, at a level where you are almost unaware of your surroundings. However, needless to say, mantras are powerful and depending on your faith simply uttering it a few times is bound to give you some blessings. How much more if you chant it 108x everyday!

Aside from the mantras of the 3 Main Buddhas (Amitabha Buddha, Shakyamuni Buddha, and Medicine Buddha) and the 4 Main Bodhisattvas (Bodhisattva Kuan Yin, Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha, Bodhisattva Samantabhadra, and Bodhisattva Majushri) and the Protector, Business and Career, Wealth Bodhisattvas (Bodhisattva Sangharama and Bodhisattva Vajrapani), I also chant the following mantras:

  1. NAMO DANG LIE XIA XIENG MI LO CHUN FO and OM MAITRI MAHĀ MAITRI MAITREYA SOHA (Mantra of the Future Buddha, Bodhisattva Maitreya) – Chanting the mantra of the Future Buddha, Maitreya Bodhisattva, who is also known as the Happy Buddha would shower with blessings of health and wealth. To understand him better you can read my post about him entitled: THE HAPPY FAT BUDDHA: A REPRESENTATION OF MAITREYA BUDDHA’S BLESSINGS.
  2. OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SOHA (Mantra of the Swift Liberator, Goddess Tara) – Chanting the mantra of Goddess Tara is really good specially when you encounter a lot of problems, because she is considered as the Swift Liberator because she liberates us from sufferings. To understand more about Goddess Tara please read the following articles: GODDESS TARA: THE MOTHER OF SWIFT LIBERATION and PAYING HOMAGE TO GODDESS TARA.Goddess Tara
  3. OM DZAMBHALA DZALIN DRAYE SOHA (Mantra of the Buddhist Wealth Deity, Yellow Dzambhala) – Chanting the mantra of Yellow Dzambhala will shower us with enormous wealth blessings. To understand Yellow Dzambhala, you can check out the article I have written about him entitled, INCREASE YOUR WEALTH BY PAYING HOMAGE TO YELLOW DZAMBHALA!

Ksitigarbha Buddha is a Bodhisattva that Vowed to Help All Those Who Suffer in Hell and in this World!

Published Oktubre 6, 2013 by jptan2012

A few days ago I wrote and introduced you to the possible wonderful blessings of THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS, and the response has been truly overwhelming. Of course, regular readers are well familiar with WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, and the several personal testimonies of people who has requested for it. Sometimes, between THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS, WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, and the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT, which, unfortunately is no longer available for requests because of its price, I believe that there is no more excuse for us to go through any form of suffering. The truth Feng Shui, Taoism, and Buddhism has a lot of deities, Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, not to mention power of symbols and mantras that can help alleviate us from any form of suffering.Ksitigarbha

However, why do many of us still suffer? Many of us still go through some form of suffering because of either of two things. One, it can be due to the fact that our house Feng Shui is bad, or it can be also due to karma, whether past life karma or recent karma. When I say recent karma, I refer to karma that is sowed during this current lifetime.

Nevertheless, still, we have a lot of Bodhisattva who have vowed to help uplift us from any form of suffering. First, of all these Bodhisattvas is the Goddess of Mercy, Kuan Yin or Avalokitesvara in Tibetan Buddhism. She remains to be the most popular and revered Bodhisattva. In fact, often times she’s referred to as the Bodhisattva of Compassion or Buddha of Compassion.

Today, allow me to introduce to you another such Bodhisattva, who in reality is already a Buddha but vowed to stay on as a Bodhisattva until such time there is no longer any soul in hell. I’m referring to Ksitigarbha Buddha, who again is actually a Bodhisattva.

Ksitigarbha Buddha, is usually depicted as a Buddhist monk, and for bigger temples, he usually has his own temple hall. In the Philippines, and smaller hall he is usually placed at the memorial halls of the dead or mausoleums this is because of his vow to save people from hell. Personally speaking, I believe this is a limitation of how Ksitigarbha should be perceived. A lot of Filipino – Chinese Buddhists thinks of Ksitigarbha only as a Bodhisattva of the souls of the dead. While it’s perfectly true and accurate, this belief doesn’t paint the whole picture of who Ksitigarbha truly is.Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva

Ksitigarbha Buddha or Dizang P’usa (also spelled as Ti Tsang P’usa, he is also called in Chinese as Dizang Wang P’usa or Ti Tsang Wang P’usa). There are a lot of translations of Ksitigarbha’s name in English, but the most common one is Earth Store.

Ksitigarbha Buddha or Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva is known for his vow to take care take responsibility of souls that are experiencing hell. This is where the translation becomes a little muddy; because some people took it to mean the literal hell, and while they are not incorrect, they’re not entirely correct either. I personally believe the other translation, hell means suffering, whether these are the souls that are suffering when they are in – between transitions from one earth life to another, or it is suffering because of what we are going through here on earth. Some people seems to have forgotten that Ksitigarbha’s vow is to take responsibility for the enlightenment of all souls in the six worlds between the physical death of Gautama (Sakyamuni or Shakyamuni) Buddha (also known as the Historical Buddha) and the rise of Maitreya Buddha (also known as the Happy Buddha or the Future Buddha), with this vow is the vow of not entering Buddhahood until all hells are emptied.

KsitigarbhaI mentioned earlier that Ksitigarbha Buddha is second to Bodhisattva of Compassion, Kuan Yin in terms of ‘popularity’ and followers to East Asian Buddhist. What’s striking is that Kuan Yin, became a woman in China from the male form of Avalokitesvara.

Ksitigarbha also had a transformation of gender, however with Ksitigarbha, he was she before she became a he. Also, unlike Kuan Yin, it is believed that Ksitigarbha really became a human being.

Much of what we know about Ksitigarbha Buddha or Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva is base on his own sutra, Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva Purvapranidhana Sutra, which is one of the most popular sutra in Mahayana Buddhism. It is said to have been spoke by Sakyamuni Buddha himself to the Trayastrimsa Heaven towards the end is earth life.ksitigarbha3

To this day it’s not clear whether the Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva Purvapranidhana Sutra has an Indian or Chinese origins. It was first believed that Tipitaka Master Siksananda, who is a famous Buddhist monk from Khotan who also provided a new translation of the Avatamsaka Sutra and the Lankavatara Sutra, translated it from the Sanskrit into Chinese during the Tang Dynasty in the 7th century. However, among all the sutras, Ksitigarbha Sutra strongly advocates filial piety, w/c was stereotype associated with Chinese culture. It talked about Ksitigarbha’s filial piety as a human or mortal, which lead to great vows to save all sentient being. Furthermore, no Sanskrit manuscript of Ksitigarbha’s sutras was ever found, which strengthen the belief that it is of Chinese origin.

According to his sutra, Ksitigarbha was a maiden in the distant past eons. He or she was of the Brahmin caste named Sacred Girl. She was said to have shown love and respect towards her parents, especially her mother. When her mother died, Sacred Girl became deeply troubled because her mother had been very slanderous towards the Triple Gem. Wanting to save her mother from the tremendous tortures of hell, Sacred Girl sold everything she has to buy offerings for the Buddha of her era. The Buddha then is known as the Buddha of the Flower of Meditation and Enlightenment. Remember that Sakyamuni Buddha was then still a Bodhisattva.

Some Buddhists, specially in japan and China (where the one child policy is forcing women to commit abortion), Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva is considered as the Bodhisattva for the souls of babies who died.

Sacred Girl would always make offerings and recitation of prayers to help save her mother’s soul. One day, while she was making an offering and prayers at the temple, she heard the Buddha of her era telling her to go home and recite his name in meditation if she truly wants to know how her mother was in the other world. She did what she was told and her consciousness through a vision was transported to a realm of Hell.  There she met the guardian of hell who informed her that through her offerings and fervent prayer, she has helped her mother accumulate enough merit to negate her karma and she has ascended to heaven where she awaits to be reborn. Sacred Girl was greatly comforted with this; however, she saw the suffering to the souls in Hell, which greatly affected her. She then made a vow to do her best to relieve the beings in hell of their suffering in her future lives.

It is normal that people will call Ksitiagrbha a Buddha even if he is actually a Bodhisattva. That is because like Kuan Yin, it's his choice to remain a Bodhisattva to help suffering people and sould.

At this time Sacred Girl is already considered as living Bodhisattva, much like how some people consider the Fourteenth Dalai Lama and Lama Zopa Rinpoche to be a living Bodhisattva. When Sacred Girl left her physical body and went to heaven, she was given the chance to go back so she can start her vow to save souls. This time she chooses to be male monk. Before he left heaven to assume his new life as a monk, he found that her mother when she was still Sacred Girl would also go back to earth to take a life of a dog; this is because she has to earn a lesson from being slanderous about the Triple Gems.

Ksitigarbha as a monk seek out Sacred Girl’s mother who is now a dog. The dog often acted as Ksitigarbha’s guard, which is a way for Sacred Mother’s mom to repay Sacred Girl’s love.

Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva is popularly depicted in two ways, one as a bald monk and the other one as a monk who wears a Five Leave Crown. He is depicted either seated or standing up on a lotus base. On his right hand is the Ringed Staff, which is carried by a lot of monks during his time. The Ringed Staff is also called the Alarm Staff; it is used to warn animals and insects that he is arriving so that he can avoid harming them by unintentionally stepping on them. In Feng Shui the ringed staff has come to symbolize the announcement of an impending danger. On his right hand is the Wish Fulfilling Jewel, which actually is a pearl. The Wish Fulfilling Jewel symbolizes the fact that Ksitigarbha has ability to help us fulfill our wishes. The Wish Fulfilling Jewel becomes a Fireball to help subdue negative energies such arguments or fighting. So it is not surprising that in some temple, you’ll see Ksitigarbha holding a round ball signifying the Wish Fulfilling Jewel, while in other he holds the Fireball. These two are actually one and the same. In Feng Shui, the Ksitigarbha fireball signifies the taming of arguments and fighting.

From my personal collection. A rare Red Amber Ksitigarbha.

Having an image of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva at home or as a pendant, will help people who are going through some hardships, Ksitgarbha will help make things better. Furthermore, having his image at home or as a pendant will also help people deal with the compulsion or addiction. Addiction and compulsion are a form of hell and suffering, thus devotion to Ksitigarbha will help. People who are going through a difficult time will get some relief if they have the image of Ksitigarbha.

If wearing it as a pendant, I prefer the image with the five leave crown.  This is a rare red jasper Ksitigarbha pendant from my personal collection.

If you are suffering from a fixed karma, meaning karma from your past life and as indicated on your Paht Chee or Bazi, having Ksitigarbha’s image and reciting his mantra will help eradicate this negative past karma.

The mantra for this is OM PRA MANI DANI SOHA.

The other mantra for Ksitigarbha Buddha is OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM.

His mantra in Chinese is NAMO DIZANG WANG P’USA.

If you wish to get an image of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, I find that an image of Ksitigarbha made of red jasper, or red amber is the best. The one made of jade only works for a select group of people.

Again, if using an image of Ksitigarbha at home, I prefer to use the one with the crown, unless, he is placed the ancestral altar.

Between the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS, the images in the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, GUAN YIN, KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA to name just some of the things that I’ve written there is no reason for us to suffer, as long as we keep our hearts pure and consciousness clean.

2013 Year of the Water Snake Essential Feng Shui Cure and Enhancer

Published Pebrero 8, 2013 by jptan2012

A few weeks ago, I wrote about this year’s general forecast base on the year’s BAZI and also a general forecast of the different animal zodiacs base on the Flying Star formula and Purple Flower Star Astrology.

Each sign would require a different Feng Shui cure and enhancer; however, I constantly received questions about what is the year’s most essential Feng Shui charm.

Today, I would like to make a short post about the year’s essential charm.

Windhorse or Lung-Ta with the 'Wish Fulfilling Jewel of Enlightenment' on its back. Please note that this is the Lung Ta or Wind Horse, just found out that some people try to sell of an ordinary image of an ordinary horse saying its a Lung Ta.

Please note that this is the Lung Ta or Wind Horse, just found out that some people try to sell of an ordinary image of an ordinary horse saying its a Lung Ta.

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.

Most if not all, would need the Lung Ta or Wind Horse. The only ones who really won’t need the Lung Ta are people with a complete and balance set of elements in their Bazi or Paht Chee. However, even if you have a complete set of elements, having a Lung Ta will still definitely be beneficial for you. The Lung Ta or Wind Horse is very good for wealth and career success.

When I decided to include the Lung Ta on the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT last year, I didn’t know that the it will be an essential charm this year.

Another important charm that is more of a Feng Shui cure is the Five Element Pagoda or the Kalachakra. This is because the Five Yellow Star of the Flying Star runs to the center and everybody is affected. We all must wear either a Five Element Pagoda or a Kalachakra all through out the year, if possible 24/7. One will do, but I personally have both because I’m wearing both the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT, which has the 5 – Element Pagoda, and the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, which has the Kalachakra.

Lastly, it will be beneficial for everybody to invite by wearing a pendant (preferably made of gold), and by putting an image in his or her home and office a Deity or Buddha. I highly recommend the image of Kuan Yin, Kuan Kong, Sun Wukong, Yellow Dzambhala or Maitreya Buddha (Happy Buddha).

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.

In choosing a Kuan Kong it's important that you look at the face. The 'braver' the face the better. Also, I prefer dark colored stones or gold Kuan Kong, because Kuan Kong is basically a red face god. I veer away from the white jade variety. Photo lifted from Google images.

2012 Year of the Water Dragon Feng Shui Essential Charms

Published Enero 12, 2012 by jptan2012

I’ve been receiving email and inquiries as to what are the Feng Shui essential charms (lucky charms) for protection from the negative chi and enhancers for the positive chi for the year of the Water Dragon.

I listed the essential charms in my previous posts…

Feng Shui-Chinese Zodiac Forecast for 2012 Year of the Water Dragon (Part 2)

However, if you just want to found out about the essential cures(protectors) and enhancers without knowing the reason behind it. Please read thru the rest of the posts.

I. FLYING STARS FENG SHUI CURES AND ENHANCERS:

EAST:

Rose Quartz Mandarin Ducks / Symbol of Double Happiness, Amethyst Geode with Red String tied on the foot of the bed.

Rose Quartz Mandarin Ducks

Chinese Characters or Words are very symbolic. Does they become effective Feng Shui tools also.

Amethyst Geode with Red String

SOUTH:

Victory Banner / Image of a Horse, Three Celestial Guardian

For people who stays in the section of the house or office please wear THE WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT.

Victory Banner

When choosing a horse for feng shui purposes, its important that you choose a horse that has a winning or winner look.

Three Celestial Guardinas consists of the Fu Dog, Pi Yao (Piyao), and Chi Lin (Chilin).

The front side of THE WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT has the image of 'The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven' Sun Wukong.

At the back of the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION is the title GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN in Chinese characters, followed by the 3 Celestial Guardians, and then at the bottom are the Five Element Pagoda and Ksitigarbha Fireball. I'm also currently looking for a jeweler who can carve the images and symbols of the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT on a jade, that is because Chinese loves jade and a lot of people have been inquiring about a JADE WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT.

CENTER:

Crystal Balls / 6 White Jade tied with a Red String

For 2012 its better to use a red crystal ball.

6 White Jade tied with a Red String. You need not have the Wu Lou at the end.

WEST:

Faux Gold Bars or Ingots or Coins / Wealth Deities (Maitreya Buddha or Kuan Kong or Sun Wukong)

Faux golld bars, ingots, and coins.

In choosing an image of a Happy Buddha, you have to look carefully at the face. It has really to look happy.

In choosing a Kuan Kong look for something that has a fierce face. Kuan Kong or Guan Gong is a famous wealth and protector god.

'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.

NORTHWEST:

Image of Sun Wukong (aka Monkey God) / Image of Guan Gong (aka Kuan Kong) / Mantra Plaque / Image of Elephant with Rhinoceros

Mantra Plaque

Elephant and Rhinoceros Plaque

Foe head of the family/business/corporation/organization whose room is in the Northwest section of the house. Please wear one of the following: Sun Wukong Pendant / Kuan Kong Pendant / Mantra Pendant / WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT.

The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION has one of the best images of Sun Wukong that's in a pendant. It's really difficult to look for a good Sun Wukong pendant.

This is a Tibetan Mantra pendant. I'm not in the process of having my jeweler craft the Mantra pendant that I personally designed. It has the mantra of the THE MEDICINE BUDDHA, YELLOW DZAMBHALA (JAMBALA OR DZAMBALA) MANTRA, THE WISH-FULFILLING MANTRA, THE NEGATIVE KARMA CLEANSING MANTRA, THE SEED SYLLABLE OF GREEN TARA, and OM AH HUM. It also has the image of The Medicine Buddha, Yellow Dzambhala, Guan Gong, Kalachakra Symbol and the Victory Banner. It's another all-in-one pendant.

SOUTHWEST:

Ksitigarbha Fireball

For Matriarchs whose room is in the Southwest section of the house. Please wear or carry a small Ksitigarbha Fireball (pendant or keychain) / Maitreya (Happy Fat) Buddha Pendant.

The Ksitigarbha Fireball is a pearl hold by Ksitigarbha Buddha that fires up when there are negative energies.

Happy Buddha Pendant. Again, you need to look for something that has a postive feel.

NORTH:

Wu Lou (Holy Gourd) / Image of Medicine Buddha

For people who stays at this section of the house, and also for middle sons and people born under the sign of the Rat, please wear a Jade Wu Lou or a Medicine Buddha pendant (preferably with Mantra).

Pi Yao is a Celestial Being that pleases the Tai Suey God.

FENG SHUI – CHINESE ZODIAC FORECAST FOR 2012 YEAR OF THE WATER DRAGON (PART 2)

Feng Shui-Chinese Zodiac Forecast for 2012 Year of the Water Dragon (Part 1)

Published Disyembre 29, 2011 by jptan2012

Allow me to share with you my own Feng Shui forecast for each of the Chinese Zodiacs for the coming year of the Water Dragon. This is base on my own reading. I actually enrolled in several intensive Feng Shui and Bazi class in HK and Singapore, but more on that next time. For now, just let me share with you my own Feng Shui reading for 2012. Please note though that this is a generalized ‘prediction’ for each sign. For a more accurate personal reading, one has to know one’s Bazi or Four Pillars. For this I need to have your Birth-year/month/day/time.

The RAT…

will have a good year. Money luck will be good a stable with the possibility of new financial opportunities coming your way. You should be more aware of opportunities and ‘open doors’, because you’ll surely have a lot of these. You just need to guard yourself from being greedy. Also you should make sure not to get too high profile because jealousies from other people might cause some negative energy.

You also have a good mentor luck this year. Meaning, there are a lot of people who might come your way to help you realize your dreams or help you earn more money.

However, people born under the sign of the rat should take care of their health, because you’re are affected by the illness star and the 3 killings.

Feng Shui Protection: Jade Wulou (Holy Gourd) / Medicine Buddha Pendant

Feng Shui Enhancers: Ruyi and Kuan Kong Pendant

A sample of a Jade Wulou or Holy Gourd. I personally prefer a jade wulou with a darker shade of green. This picture was lifted from Google images.

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

THE OX…

will have a good business/professional/career/financial luck this year. But this luck becomes conflicting because of your tendencies to become hot tempered and swell headed which may cause a lot of negative energies and wash out your good celestial karma.

People born under the sign of Ox should be very careful getting into arguments and delicate legal matters because these things might cause misery to you.

But as mentioned, you will have good financial luck and like the rat there will be a lot of stable, long term money making opportunities for you. However, the similarities with the rat’s luck doesn’t end there, because you will also have to watch out for your health. Be extra careful and avoid getting sick, also there’s a possibility of an accident. To prevent this, try to donate blood during the first lunar month of the Chinese calendar or donate money to a charity.

Feng Shui Protection: Jade Wulou (Holy Gourd) / Medicine Buddha Pendant and Kuan Kong Pendant and Ksitigarbha Fireball (Pendant/Key Chain)

Feng Shui Enhancers: Ruyi(pendant or keychain), Mystic Knot (pendant or key chain)

Kuan Kong also spelled as Guan Gong is a warrior god. He is a very good protector and wealth god.

In choosing a Kuan Kong it's important that you look at the face. The 'braver' the face the better. Also, I prefer dark colored stones or gold Kuan Kong, because Kuan Kong is basically a red face god. I veer away from the white jade variety. Photo lifted from Google images.

Ksitigarbha Fireball helps protect the bearer from the 'argumentative' star. Picture lifted from Google images.

Place a Ruyi on top of your work table or beside your bed.

Wear a ruyi pendant to continously 'carry' its power.

Ruyi DZI bead. You can also wear this as a pendant or as bracelet mixed with some semi-precious stones. For this year red stones works best.

THE TIGER…

has financial luck this year. But it is not strong and stable, which means money may come easily but it may not be a big amount and/or you may lose the money as easy as well. However, the main solution here is for you to be work harder and try to be more conscious in how you spend your money.

Feng Shui Protection: Mystic Knot (pendant or key chain)

Feng Shui Enhancers: Golden Deity (a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity made of gold or gold plated. My suggestions are Kuan Yin, Sun Wukong [Taoist and Buddhist Monkey God], Kuan Kong, Dzambala, Tua Peh Kong, Maitreya Buddha [also known as the Happy Fat Buddha], Tara, or Che Kong.)

Mystic Knot

Green Tara

THE RABBIT…

will have a better luck this year compared to last year. However, this is a ‘slow process’ and you will need to work hard to ‘erase’ the negative energies of the past year. You will have to look and work hard for opportunities to open up for you and you will have to ‘grab it by the horn’. You cannot be timid but neither you can be to bullish without weighing properly weighing the situation.

Health wise may be a little bleak also. You might be constantly wear down by minor illnesses that may not be serious but may cause long term discomfort.

On the love front – a single rabbit may continue to have a flat line, while a married or a partnered rabbit will have to be careful in having a third party get involved in their partnership.

Feng Shui Protection: Jade Wulou (Holy Gourd)/Medicine Buddha Rooster with Fan Pendant or Figurine/Double Happiness Pendant, Mantra Pendant

Feng Shui Enhancers: Mystic Knot, Kuan Kong Pendant/Maitreya Buddha (Happy Fat Buddha) Pendant/Kuan Yin Pendant

The Double Happiness symbol is a powerful Feng Shui tool to enhance and/or safeguard your love life.

Maitreya Buddha or more commonly known as the Happy Buddha or the Fat Buddha is actually the future Buddha. Maitreya Buddha symbolizes abundance, wealth, happiness, peace, and good health.

Kuan Yin is one of my most favorite Deity or Bodhisattva. I personally have several gold, jade, and other semi-precious stones Kuan Yin pendant.


On my next post I’ll discuss the other signs-DRAGON, SNAKE, HORSE, SHEEP, MONKEY, ROOSTER, DOG & BOAR(PIG). Almost all the Feng Shui Enhancers and Protectors mentioned in this post are available in Ongpin. I can also help you avail some of the charms. Unless specifically specified any kind of material will do except the ones that are made of plastic. But remember, semi-precious or precious stones like jade, high-quality jade, ruby, diamonds, etc. are better. Gold, platinum being precious metals also enhances the Feng Shui charm’s energy.
