Despite being one of the largest salt-water lakes in Asia, Namtso is still relatively an unknown name to most people. But from this unknown lake comes one of the rarest Buddhist artisan salts that are good in combating and protecting us from negative chi and also helps generate wealth luck.
Namtso Lake is more popularly known as the ‘Heavenly Lake’ and is considered as the third holiest lake in Tibet. It is also the largest salt-water lake in Tibet.
Before China invaded Tibet, Namtso Lake is one of the most popular pilgrimage sites; inspite of it’s relatively being inaccessible. The famous Tashi Dor monastery is located at the southeastern corner of the lake. Now it has simply become a tourist spot because the Chinese government has disallowed that it be considered a pilgrimage and holy site. namsto.4
I’ve never been to Namtso Lake, but according to my Guru Lama, Namtso Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes one can ever see. Its water is turquoise in color giving it a look of an ocean. It is believed that Namtso Lake has been an apparition site of various Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, namely, Avalokitesvara (Kuan Yin in her original form), White Dzambhala, Medicine Buddha. Furthermore, it is said the Guru Rinpoche himself has declared the lake to be holy.
There is no clear history as to when it started but Namtso Lake being a holy salt-water lake, gave rise to one of the most powerful salt in combatting negative energy and helping to enhance wealth luck.
Namtso Salt is a whole round chunk of salt as big as a small baby’s head. It is usually process in a clay pot and is considered as one of the purest salt. Placing the Namtso salt in a room will protect the room from negative chi. It is extremely advisable for one to use Namtso Salt if one doesn’t know whether a Feng Shui of the room is good or bad. Furthermore, a Namtso Salt that has been blessed by a monk can drive away evil spirits.
Aside from driving away evil spirits and protecting us from negative chi, Namtso Salt placed on the center table of the living room and on the dining table acts as a very potent wealth enhancer. According to my Guru Lama, he personally witnessed this when a 2nd generation Tibetan refugee migrated to Singapore to seek for greener pastures. However, after 2 years of staying in Singapore he was unable to improve his life and has not been able to send a single centavo to his family in India. Worst, he is not even able to send letters because he was so poor that he doesn’t have money for postage and of course, emails is out of the question. Out of frustration, he seeks out the help of a monk who happens to be a student of my Guru Lama. This particular young monk then brought his story to the attention of my Guru Lama. My Guru Lama then decided to do a special puja for him, but since he has a small chunk of Namtso Salt with him, he decided to bless it and gave it to the Tibetan refugee. His luck then has since has a great turn around, it has been 10 years since it happened, and he has now went back home to India where he now has his won business. He got his capital in Singapore and has largely recognized that his luck started to change for good after he received the Namtso Salt.
Making the Namtso Salt is a very tedious process, and takes months before one is finally available.
First, Buddhist monks usually gathered fallen woods from the forest. They will the soak the woods in the Namtso Lake for 6 months. After 6 months, they will then chop the woods into smaller chunks and dry them out under the sun. The process usually takes up to 5 days. Then they will slowly burn the said wood, once the wood is burnt into ashes they will then put more Namtso Lake salt water and put it into clay pots. That’s when they’ll cook the salt. The salt is cooked once the clay pots broke. namtso salt
To my knowledge, there is only one other place who do a similar artisan salt this way, and that’s here in the Philippines. Bohol also has a similar process, but unlike the Namtso Salt the one in Bohol is made for cooking.
In using the Namtso Salt as a protection against negative energy or to drive away evil spirits, it’s advisable to place one whole Namtso Salt in each room of the house or in the room where the evil spirit dwells. If you’re confined in a hospital, it’s also good to bring one whole Namtso Salt and place it in your hospital room.
Breaking a Namtso Salt into smaller pieces can also act as protection amulet. Again it will drive away evil spirits and protect us from negative energy. It is recommended when carried on as an amulet, place a small chunk (about the size of a tablespoon) in a red cloth and carry it with you. Carrying when going to the yin places like cemeteries, hospitals, etc. will also protect us from the yin energy of the place. These small chunks will also act as a micro wealth luck enhancer.
As mentioned, to use the Namtso Salt as wealth enhancer, one can place it on the dining table and on the center table of the living room.
Placing a whole Namtso Salt on the front door will repel all negative energies, and putting them inside the toilet, will help alleviate the negative energies cause by having a toilet in that section of the house.
Taking a Namtso Salt bath is also the most effective salt bath. One you can do is get a small chunk about a size of a tablespoon and put it in the tub.
China’s invasion of Tibet has made the making of the Namtso Salt even more difficult. It was already extremely difficult to make a batch of Namtso Salt before but it was even harder now, so much so that per batch of Namtso Salts are only made every 10 to 15 years. Furthermore, this is usually smuggled out of Tibet because the Chinese government in an effort to stop Buddhism has also made it illegal to make and export Namtso Salts out of Tibet.
A very limited number of Namtso Salts is being made available for the readers of this blog thru the kindness of my Guru Lama. Proceeds of the sale of the said Namtso Salts are to be given to either for the food of the Buddhist monks or to Tibetan refugees. However, because of the bulkiness of the Namtso Salts, there will only be limited areas or countries that can receive them. Also, for shipments we might have to do it by bulk.

How to Counter the Negative Chi of A Hospital

Published Mayo 7, 2014 by jptan2012

Today, I would yet like to share with you another natural way of countering negative chi. It is almost inevitable that at one point in our life we will either be hospitalized, have a loved one who’s going to be hospitalized, or visit somebody in the hospital.

As I mentioned before the hospital is one of the most yin place one can visit, and it is extremely important that one is totally protected when we enter the hospital, either as a patient or as a visitor.Ft. Belvoir Hospital

I personally just wear my WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT and/or the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT whenever I go to the hospital. The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT has the image of The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven Sun Wukong who is one the most powerful protector deity. The WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA pendant on the other hand has the image of the Medicine Buddha, Kuan Kong, Kalachakra, both the immediate and the negative karma cleansing mantra, which are all very powerful protector from the yin energy that a hospital emits.

However, the truth is not everyone can afford the pendants that I mentioned. But there are other ways of protecting oneself from the yin energy of the hospital without having to buy either of the pendants.

As a patient if the doctor’s recommendation is that you be confined in the hospital, ask a love to make sure to put rock salt in the 4 corners of your room and in the 4 corners of the restroom. About a teaspoon each will do. You personally, should have about a teaspoon of rock salt beside your bed and make sure that you always have flowers inside the room. Try to choose colorful ones rather than those that are quite dull in color. Having fruits in the room will also help. So having the salt and flowers and/or fruits will ensure that the yang energy of these things will counter the yin energy of the room or of the hospital.

Flowers are a great way of dispelling the negative chi or yin energy of a hospital. Furthermore, it can make a sick person feel better. (Photo lifted from Google Images)

Upon discharge, take a piece of flower with you and some salt as you leave. Throw them out on your way home, just before you get home.

If you are taking care of a love one or are visiting a loved one, try to have a small packet of rocket salt and put it in your pocket. Throw them out every time you leave the hospital and bring a new one whenever you’re going there. If possible also get a flower and throw it out just before you reach your home.

Additional piece of advice, if you can, before entering your hospital room, have a love one knock on the door first, open the door, and act as if someone is getting out of the room. This is to make sure that if there are any lingering spirits inside, they hopefully take the cue that they need to leave the room.
