The Magic of A Five Colored String in Creating Good Luck!

Published Agosto 3, 2017 by jptan2012

Today, allow me to share with you a short post on how to create good luck simply by using simple items. Those simple items are simple 5 different color of strings.

When you are experiencing some bad luck, and naturally would want those bad luck to turn into good luck, simple get 5 different strings. Get the colors RED, GREEN, YELLOW, BLACK/BLUE, and WHITE. These colors represent the five elements – FIRE, WOOD, EARTH, WATER, and METAL.

In front of your altar, light an incense, then pass the string three times above the incense burner, after that tie a knot at one end of the string then proceed to braid them, while braiding chant OM MANI PADME HUM.

This is a sample of what you want to achieve. But do not use metal hooks, you would want to knot it in the end.

The idea is to make a braided string long enough to become a bracelet. If you have long enough braided string, stop chanting and tie a knot again, make sure you have enough strings on both ends to tie a knot on your wrist. After you’ve done this, tie it around the wrist of your receiving hand. Leave it there, do not untie it even if you take a shower or swim. You should see some changes in your life within 7 days after doing this. Note though that this works best for small bad lucks.

Soon the strings will break, don’t worry about it, it’s just a normal wear and tear. Once it has broken off, bring it to a temple and leave it there.strings

8 Simple Steps to Give the Gift of Luck!

Published Hunyo 24, 2015 by jptan2012

goodluck-large-bpx-500x500I have a reader in Cebu who has a very generous spirit. She bought the Vajrapani Ruel(1) for herself, but when she found out that her friend is experiencing some problems, she was very generous to give her Vajrapani Ruel(2) to him, even if the Vajrapani Ruel(3) is not very affordable. In fact, it can be considered quite expensive. But I know because she was sincere in giving it and she is very generous, that simple act of passing on the Vajrapani Ruel(4) gave her a lot of good merit.

However, I know that not all of us will have enough money to give out expensive amulets, but what can one do if we see somebody experiencing a lot of problems and we want to help them thru Feng Shui.

There are a lot of things one can do that are not expensive, and it might not even cause you a single centavo. Here are some of them:

  1. Chant a mantra for them.
  2. Read a sutra and dedicate the merits of the act for them.
  3. Light some incense for them.
  4. Light some candle for them.
  5. Offer or fruits or flowers to the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas for them.
  6. Give them some fruits.
  7. Give them some flowers.
  8. Give them rice or sugar or salt as a gift.

Numbers 6 to 8 are gifts that has natural yang energy and the act of sincerely giving it to them also offers an added yang energy that will surely help them. Numbers 1 to 5 are very good acts that you can do for them. It may not be as strong as if they do it themselves but the act, when sincerely done, is filled with a lot of merits that it’s impossible that it doesn’t help them. What’s more by simply sincerely doing for them, you will also have some merits yourself.

So remember, while giving of images of Buddhas or Bodhisattvas, or amulets, or Feng Shui charms creates a lot of good luck for both the recipient and the giver, these things can get quite costly. So don’t feel helpless because the 8 simple acts mentioned above will work ‘magic’ as well.

Fu, The Taoist’s Magical Paper Talisman

Published Agosto 15, 2012 by jptan2012

I have been wanting to write about the Fu (Mandarin) or Hu (Foo Kien) for quite some time now, however, I debated whether it is proper for me to write about the Fu because it is something that is not easily available or something that can be bought in a store.

This Fu is from a Taoist temple in Valenzuela called Bi Tsong Put (pronounced as Bee Chong Poot). Depending on the Fu, one usually burns a set, one set is usually 3 pieces.

Fu or Hu is a Taoist magical paper talisman. Fu is an ancient and special form of ‘magic’ or sorcery (sorcery is not exactly negative unless use in a negative way) that uses special characters or images or symbols or prayers or words ‘printed’ on a yellow rice paper in red ink. It is believed that a Fu can store a magic spells and good chi. While anybody can make a Fu or Hu, it entails a special skill and blessing from a Taoist God  for you to be able to lock the magic spell or chi in the said magical paper talisman. To do this one has to be an ordained Taoist priest or a Taoist God medium. The said chi and spell is further locked into the Fu by making sure that it passes through the incense burner dedicated to the said Taoist God, Immortal or Deity mentioned in the Fu.

Anyone can activate and tap into the power of the Fu by carrying the magical paper talisman on one’s body, putting them on the window or door, or placing in the room, or simply by burning them. Most Fu or Hu are burned while one calls on the God, Deity or Immortal represented by the Fu followed by the intent. However, as mentioned, there are some Fu that are to be worn on the body like an amulet, or place on the door, etc.

Fu(s), I believe, is one of the most powerful talisman in the world, provided you get it from a reliable source, and from somebody who is not driven by monetary reasons. Unfortunately, in the Philippines, there are some temples that sell their Fu. I don’t believe that this is right, especially, if there are patrons who have greatly benefited from tapping the power of the Fu, that they sponsor printing of Fu(s).

There are different kinds of Fu(s), depending on the temple and sometimes depending on the purpose or intent of the person needing the Fu. One can use a Fu to invoke a God/Deity/Immortal’s help, to protect a household, heal the sick, or exorcise demons or bad spirits. Some people would associate the Fu like a petition paper, or a court order depending on the purpose or intent.

This is a Fu that I burn every morning. It is a Fu of a Taoist Temple in Abad Santos St., Manila called – CHEAT TAI SOON. Unlike most Fu, one set of this is 7 pieces.

There is no clear record as to what Chinese civilization first used the Fu, however, the Fu is mentioned in a lot of Chinese religious and political texts. An apocryphal Taoist text call Ku Wei Shu or Old Mystical Test, the role of Fu is associated with the last legendary Five Emperors of China, especially with Great Emperor Yu, the mysterious Emperor who founded the Hsia Dynasty.

It is said that the Great Emperor has stop a terrible flood that has devastated most of China by burning several Fu of the Goddess of the North Star.

This is the Fu of the Goddess of Mercy / Bodhisattva of Compassion / Kuan Yin. I make sure I burn at least one set of her Fu everyday.

Personally, I can attest to the power of the Fu, and I use it a lot in conjunction of my mantras and Feng Shui.

There was this one time when one of our houseboy went into a epileptic attack, some say he was being possessed by a spirit, we don’t really know, but I specifically remember my mom just got a set of Fu, burned it and after less than a minutes our houseboy became visibly relax. He was sent to the hospital, but the hospital said that they don’t think he had an epileptic attack, and our houseboy claims that he saw a dark shadow hovering over him.

This is the Fu of The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven – Sun Wukong. Sun Wukong has three different kind of Fu. This one is for personal, family matters.

Another experience with the power of the Fu that I had, happened when I was still involve in an NGO. One of our managers got an educational grant in Berlin, but he has to pay for her own airfare and board and lodging. The organization raised funds for her board and lodging, however, nobody has volunteered to shoulder her airfare. We decided to write to several politicians, travel agencies, and famous businessman. Unfortunately, all of them turned down our request, except for one Chinese businessman. When we called up his office, his secretary informed us that her boss has read the letter but that he really hasn’t replied. We are quite desperate already because our colleague is scheduled to leave in 2 days and she still hasn’t raise her airfare fund. We beg the secretary of the Chinese businessman to give us time to present our cause to the businessman himself, the secretary agreed and said we should go to their office that same afternoon and she’ll see whether she can give us 5 minutes with the Chinese businessman. We immediately left, and for some reason, I decided to bring a set of Fu (one set is 3 pieces) of The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven Sun Wukong.On our way, the secretary called my colleagues mobile phone and said that there’s no need for us to go because her boss has already informed her that he can’t finance my colleague’s trip. My colleague informs the secretary that we are already downstairs and begged her to still allow seeing the Chinese businessman. The secretary agreed and I decided to burn the Fu with the intent of getting the businessman to finance my colleague’s trip to Berlin. To make the long story short, we went up, had an audience with the businessman, and was asked a single question – How would the country benefit from this trip? – My friend gave her reply and she got the funds for her airfare!

This is another Sun Wukong’s Fu. This one is for business. There’s another one but I don’t have a copy of it, that is for health.

I know somebody who is sick of cancer and was given a ‘death sentence’ by his doctor. He started burning some Fu and now he is well. Even his doctor was surprised that he won over the cancer.

There are a lot more stories about the power of the Fu, be it about money, business, personal problems, etc. The Fu has always made magical solutions for seemingly unsolvable problems.

For one to be able to tap into the power of the Fu, the Fu is burned. You call on the Immortal/Deity represented in the Fu, then you say your intent. However, there are some Fu that can be worn on the body and or placed on the door, etc.
