Serendipity and Affinity (Part 2)

Published Disyembre 28, 2014 by jptan2012

In my earlier post, I talked about Serendipity, now I would like to talk about Affinity. In Chinese there is a word called Yuen, which really has no direct English translation, but the closest word for it is affinity.

The Taoist and Feng Shui believers do believe that we sometimes have yuen or affinity with some Deities, Gods, Buddhas, or Bodhisattvas. The Buddhist don’t believe this, I personally tend to believe that yuen do exists but it is not a precursor for us to be able to get the help of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas.

The Taoist belief that if you have yuen or affinity with a God or Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity, your prayers tend to be heard better and it’ll be easier for you to receive a blessing. It is also said that if you have yuen or affinity, you’ll personally feel closer to the said Deity, God, Buddha or Bodhisattva.

Personally, while I believe in yuen or affinity with the Buddhas, I don’t believe that this makes it easier for you to receive their blessings, it only means that you may be more attuned to their messages and you might feel closer to them. Whether it is easier or they will give us more blessings because we have affinity with each other should be the same with all people, but yuen or affinity might make us more attuned to their message and blessings.

Writing this because just recently, TK, a reader who had had the opportunity to consult and meet with me in person exhibited a strong affinity with the Bodhisattva of Compassion or Avalokitesvara aka Kuan Yin.

TK, consulted me about her family, and the initial reading showed that she should wear an image of Kuan Yin carved out of a Pink Chalcedony. Luckily, she was able to acquire one and after wearing it for a few months, it got broken. I think it got broken because she needed to be cleansed of a negative energy that may be causing her some harm thus causing her family problems. She has to replace it with another Kuan Yin pendant carved out of a High Grade Black Dragon Obsidian stone, this is quite hard to find but she found one. Then after while she also needed a Kuan Yin carved out of a Golden Chalcedony. Again, this is a very rare stone, but for some weird reason, just a day before she looked for one, a supplier has one, which arrived just a day before she started looking for one.

The Kuan Yin with the Heart Sutra is part of the Holy Trinity of Protection for the 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep. The sutra can be carried separately.

I guess one of the biggest surprises was when I wrote about THE HEART OF THE PRAJNA PARAMITA SUTRA where I mentioned my Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra pendant. Most of you would know that it is quite difficult to find this particular pendant, and I myself had only come across it a few times. However, TK for some reason read my article and somehow although they don’t know each other, another person who is not a regular reader of my blog also happened to check my blog and read that particular post. It also happened that he still has one Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra pendant left. Then for some reason, TK also received a message from a person who all of sudden thought of sending her message, TK mentioned about the pendant, and this person also happened to have gotten a call from the person who read my post who has the pendant. Needless to say, this person became a bridge for TK to have the pendant.

Back side of my Kuan Yin pendant. You can see though it's small the The The Heart of the Prajna Paramita Sutra is written behind it.

When a monk heard about the story and when he got TK’s birthday and name, he said TK has yuen or affinity with Kuan Yin. I also had come to this conclusion myself. The coincidences is simply too much. I guess TK is so lucky to have yuen with Kuan Yin.

Feng Shui Tips to Activate Descendant Luck

Published Pebrero 29, 2012 by jptan2012

One of the greatest aspirations of the Chinese is to ensure that they have good descendants, thus when looking for a spouse they consult Feng Shui experts to ensure that descendant’s luck of a couple is present. In fact, once the wife gets pregnant she is treated like a goddess, even the mother-in-law will definitely make sure that the pregnant daughter-in-law is taken care of properly to ensure a smooth pregnancy.

Also, in the old days much effort is given to ensuring that a boy is born, is to ensure the family’s lineage is well preserved. A girl is considered as a less important child because she is destined to be married off to another family, and thus considered as somebody else’s child. In fact, this practice or belief has become so bad that there are some Chinese families who don’t give names to their daughter because they’re destined to be known as the wife of so-so. Thus when addressing them in the household they’re simply called as First Daughter, Second Daughter, Big Sister, or Second Sister, or Third Sister. When addressed by somebody else other than their family they’re simply called as ‘First Daughter of Wong Family’ they’re simply defined by their family name and whether they’re the eldest daughter or the youngest, etc. When they get married they’re then simply defined by the husband’s family name. My own grandmother doesn’t even have her own name.

However, because I don’t believe that women are of a ‘lesser’ being compared to men, I will not write about Feng Shui tips in ensuring that the couple are to have a boy, rather, I’d like to share some Feng Shui tips to activate one’s Descendant Luck or Fertility Luck.

Several of the Feng Shui tips that I’m going to mention are things that I’ve recommended to friends and family.

RED KUAN YIN PENDANT.  Kuan Yin (also known as ‘Goddess of Mercy’, ‘Buddha of Compassion’) is a Bodhisattva revered both in Taoism and Buddhism. Kuan Yin grants the wish of having of babies. For this purpose a red Kuan Yin (also spelled as Kwan Yin, Quan Yin) is best to help you activate your Descendant’s Luck. It is highly recommended that both the husband and the wife wear a red Kuan Yin pendant. However, if this is not possible, then it is recommended that the woman wear the pendant. I have three different previous post about Kuan Yin. Get to know her by reading them. The first post is KUAN YIN: THE ONE WHO HEARS THE CRIES OF THE WORLD, the second post is UNDERSTANDING MERCY AND COMPASSION: THE TRANSFORMATION OF AVALOKITESVARA TO KUAN YIN, and the third post is PAYING HOMAGE TO KUAN YIN, THE BUDDHA OF COMPASSION.

RABBIT. A rabbit is a very powerful symbol of fertility. It’s believes that placing the image of a rabbit in the East section of the bedroom can increase the chances of fertility.

HAPPY FAT BUDDHA WITH CHILDREN. Having the image of the Happy Fat Buddha whose real name is Maitreya Buddha in your house helps increase your potential of having a good descendant luck. You can also know more about the Happy Fat Buddha by clicking here.

CARNELIAN BRACELET. Carnelian or Carnelian Agates or Orange Agates worn as bracelet is one of the best fertility charm. Carnelian is a stone or semi-precious stone that directly controls our sixth chakra – the sire where our reproductive organs are located. Wearing a carnelian as a bracelet will increase the wearer’s chance of being more fertile. This charm is also great for people who have found to have low sperm or egg count.

IMAGE OF KUAN YIN WITH A BABY. Placing an image of Kuan Yin with a Baby is another Feng Shui Descendant Luck enhancer. For this purpose, it’s best to place the image of Kuan Yin with a Baby on the west section of your house. If this is not possible you can also place the image of Kuan Yin with a Baby in the West corner of your living room.

A PAIR OF ELEPHANTS. This is one of the most effective Feng Shui cure and enhancer to activate one’s descendant luck. You should note that the trunk of the elephants should be down and not up. Place a pair of elephants with the trunks down on the west section of your room and if possible both couples should stroke the trunks of the elephant three times each night.

THREE PIECES OF CERAMIC OR PORCELAIN POMEGRANATE AND/OR PEACH. Both the pomegranate and the peach are powerful Feng Shui tools to enhance your descendant luck or fertility luck. In choosing a ceramic or porcelain pomegranate, choose the one that has a color of deep red. For ceramic or porcelain peach choose one that has a color of bright pink.

RECITE THE MANTRA OF GODDESS TARA. Goddess Tara or Green Tara is a Buddhist deity born out of Avalokitesvara or Kuan YIn’s tear drop. I’ll discuss more about Green Tara on a future post, however, allow me to say that calling on Goddess Tara by reciting her mantra is one way of activating one’s Descendant Luck. Furthermore, placing an image of the white manifestation of Goddess Tara called White Tara on the west section of your house also activates one’s descendant luck. Goddess Tara’s mantra is OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SOHA. Wearing her seed syllable TAM is also a powerful tool to activate one’s descendant luck. The seed syllable TAM is one of the featured symbolic syllable in the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.
