The Creation of Wealth: Is Wanting to Get Wealthy A Sin and A Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet Miraculous Story Shared by My Guru Lama!

Published Setyembre 1, 2017 by jptan2012

wealthEncountering new amulets is always a unique and wonderful experience. Being one of the instruments to make the amulet available to some people is even a bigger blessing. Just recently another powerful wealth amulet was introduced in this blog, the amulet is called the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, and while it is a fairly new amulet to be read about, it is technically an old amulet since the instruction of it was found by my Guru Lama about 20 years ago in a Tantric Buddhist Scripture, whose original copy is said to have been written by high lama in Tibet approximately 1,200 years ago. This means, the amulet itself has been existing at the very least 1,200 years or maybe even more. There were several initiation for an amulet in the said Tantric Buddhist Scripture, and several are in use now, however, as to why this particular amulet has not been regularly used, nobody knows.

In the post called THE VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET: AN INTRODUCTION TO A VERY POWERFUL WEALTH AMULET, I wrote about how Guru Lama in a deep meditative state discovered the holy book (a copy of the original one) where the instruction and ritual in making this amulet was written. He also made this amulet for the first time for one of his Sangha member who at that time lives in poverty but is now one of the famous rich Singaporean businessmen.

Although that was the first time Guru Lama made the amulet, it was definitely not the last. From time to time, he will make the amulet for some people who badly need it. And today, I will share one of the stories whom Guru Lama has blessed by making this amulet for that person.

Chun Qiet (CQ) is a Malaysian – Chinese who was born in Singapore. His parents are both devout Buddhist and are Sangha members of the temple where Guru Lama serves as Abbot. His family would always go to temple and Guru Lama knows the family quite well. One day, tragedy strike, CQ’s family had an accident and both of CQ’s parents died.

CQ was left with his father’s business. But CQ was only 19 then and he is not familiar with the business. An uncle came to help, but after 4 years they soon found out that he is not capable of running his brother’s business and suggested to CQ to just sell the business. Since CQ is close to Guru Lama, he sought him out and asked for blessings. CQ confessed that if he doesn’t sell the business he might be left with nothing. He might have to sell their house. But at the same time he confessed that he doesn’t want to sell his father’s business because he feels that it is his father’s legacy.

Guru Lama doesn’t agree that CQ’s father’s legacy is the business because he believes the CQ’s father’s legacy is CQ himself, who has proven himself to be a responsible and good young man.

After that conversation that Guru Lama had with CQ, he decided to make the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet for CQ.

Note: That was not the second time Guru Lama made the amulet; he has made it for several other people.

After receiving the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, CQ was approached by an old friend of his father to ask about his welfare and the business. CQ opened up about his dilemma, and surprisingly this ‘uncle’ offered to invest in the business so CQ can help bring it back up, but on top of that he offered to help in the business. CQ’s uncle was initially reluctant because he was afraid that his brother’s friend would just take over the business. But somehow CQ realized that he got nothing to lose and he decided to just plunge into it, besides he felt that the amulet would help him.

Well, it did. That was 14 years ago. CQ is now again the sole owner of the business he inherited from his father. He has since made the business bigger. His father’s only guided him in the business for 3 years after which he gradually left the business until it was made official thru legal papers again 7 years after he invested and ‘meddled’ in the business. CQ has since then ‘bought him out’ of the business again, obviously this was done amicably. CQ firmly believes that it was because of the amulet that he was fortunate enough to be reacquainted with his father’s friend.

Vaisravana.

King Vaisravana a powerful Buddhist wealth god is the chief of the Four Heavenly Kings.

Guru Lama explains that the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is not an amulet that gives you a quick rich blessing. Although, he has seen this happened also. However, he said the main effect of the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is protection; protection that you don’t lose your wealth or money, but it is also helps you create your wealth by leading you to the right people and to the right sources. Guru Lama explains that in “Maha Biddhuya Vaircona Abihidisambohi Vikurvitadthisnana Vaipulya Sudrentaha Raja Nama Dharma – Paryaya”, the Tantric Buddhist Scripture or book where he found the guideline for the initiation of the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, it clearly states that this particular wealth amulet is an amulet that helps gather wealth sources for you, then helps you actualize your wealth, after which it will stabilize it and makes it a continuous process to help your wealth grow bigger and bigger. Thus it is imperative that the container is a cylindrical metal to represent continuity and stability. What does this mean? It means it is unique in such a way that it doesn’t pull out from your bazi or karma or own luck the money, but rather it creates wealth luck for you. Other amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel, which is mainly a protective amulet but has a very high percentage of wealth luck manifesting features, will bring wealth luck to you if you have wealth luck base on your bazi or karma. Our life are pre – determined, but this doesn’t mean that it is only pre – determined on a single path, it is pre – determined with various paths, the normal is 3 – 4 paths, sometimes more, but there are times that it is only 2. However, admittedly there is a single path is more dominant than all the other paths. And what the Vajrapani Ruel and the other amulet does is get your wealth luck from all the other paths. The Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is unique in such a way that even if there is no wealth luck in all the ‘paths’ of your life, it creates it for you. So in a way it changes your wealth destiny. So this amulet is very good for people who absolutely don’t have wealth luck. Nevertheless, for those who have wealth luck already but are unable to tap into it, the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet helps pull those luck for you, make it attainable and then creates a new path for you so that it becomes sustainable and continuous, it is not a “one time, big time” thing.

Inside the metal container are the consecrated mantras of King Vaisravana, the chief of the Four Heavenly Kings, and a known wealth god, with the consecrated mantras of the Yaksa (also spelled as Yaksha) wealth gods: Green Dzambhala, White Dzambhala, Yellow Dzambhala, Red Dzambhala, and Blue Dzambhala/Black Dzambhala!

Note: Dzambhala is also spelled as Dzambala, Jambhala, Jambala, Zambhala, Zambala.

The mantras were printed under strict Mahayana guidelines found in the Tantric Buddhist book and then consecrated under strict Mahayana – Hinayana initiations. It was then sealed under special prayers and mantras that a high lama like Guru Lama can chant.

Some of you might be asking why create a wealth amulet. That is because whether we accept it or not we are living in a time where there is a lot of uncertainty and money problems or financial problems seems to becoming more common. We all want and need financial blessings or money blessings and there is nothing wrong with it. It boils down to the intent and purpose; those are the things that determine the goodness or evilness of having money.

Majority of my readers are Christians, which is ironic because a lot of those attack my site as evil are also Christians, and I’m sure a lot of you will be asking whether isn’t this bad because ‘money is the root of evil’.

Money is not the root of evil. Money is simply that money, it’s a tool. It’s just like a computer or an iron or a chair or car, how we use it makes it evil or good. We are the root of evil, but we are also definitely the root of goodness. What we make of it determines whether it becomes evil or not.

To further answer whether money is bad, or wanting to be wealthy is bad or not, allow me to share something with you.

There is a silent but big number of theologist and scholars who believes that Christianity actually evolved from Buddhism. I have written about this in the past but to briefly put it, Christianity existed about 500 to 1000 years after Buddhism. And the similarities are simply astounding. For example, the Holy Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit are very similar to the concept of the Holy Trinity of Buddhism which consists of Amitabha Buddha (who even is not considered as Shakyamuni Buddha’s father is actually an ‘older’ Buddha and was the one who sent Bodhisattva Vajrapani to protect Sakyamuni Buddha on the eve of his full enlightenment), Buddha Sakyamuni (who is the Buddha of our world, who became human first and it has to be noted, if there is a tempting of Jesus Christ, there was also a tempting of Sakyamuni Buddha on the eve of his enlightenment), and Bhaysajyaguru Buddha or better known as Medicine Buddha (which is the only celestial Buddha, a Buddha that didn’t assume a human physical form). As you can see one can see that here this three Buddhas is similar to the Holy Trinity of the Christians.

Furthermore, the concept of the Holy Mother or the Virgin Mother can be akin to Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara who became Kuan Yin Bodhisattva. Even the white dress with the veil is very much similar. Not to mention her ascension is very similar to the ascension story not of Bodhisattva Kuan Yin but rather of Buddha Sakyamuni’s earthly mother.

Note: Bodhisattva Kuan Yin is also called, as already mentioned Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva and the other names are Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva, Quan Shi Yin Bodhisattva, Quan Yin Bodhisattva, Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva, Guan Yin Bodhisattva, Bodhisattva Chenrezig, or Kannon Bodhisattva.

Not only that, the concept of Second Coming is very similar to the concept of the coming of the next Buddha, which is Maitreya Buddha. I can go on and on about the other similarities but I think that is a topic for another post.

I say this because I find it surprising the despite of the many similarities, one of the major difference is how one looks at money or wealth. Most Christians whether Catholic or otherwise are not comfortable talking about wanting to have more money or increasing their wealth. That is despite of the fact churches are quite rich. In Buddhism, there is nothing wrong in wanting more money or having the desire to increase wealth. In fact, Buddhism teaches that wealthy people have good karma, it may or may not be from this life but it can be from past life or past lives. Also, being wealthy makes it easier to practice Dharma and to become kinder and helpful to other people. I’m not saying that it is a prerequisite, but what I’m saying is that it is a good tool to make oneself become more compassionate and be helpful.

Allow me to share a story that supposedly happened thousand of year ago:

Lama Atisha, the revered lama and Mahasiddha, came across an old man, dying of starvation in Bodghaya. Lama Atisha offered his own flesh, cut from his body, to save the old man. But the old man said, “How can I eat a monk’s flesh?” Lama Atisha felt helpless in the face of this suffering. In Lama Atisha’s moment of despair, Chenrezeig (Guan Yin), the Compassionate One, appeared to Atisha and said, “Out of my eye, will manifest Jambhala, the Buddha of wealth, to help suffering beings. I shall alleviate their poverty so they will not be distracted from practicing the good heart.”

This is just one version of the timeless story of Jambhala, a “wealth deity,” a profoundly simple story that illustrates why wealth is not necessarily the root of all evils. Again, I would like to bring your attention to the statement that says: I SHALL ALLEVIATE THEIR POVERTY SO THEY WILL NOT BE DISTRACTED FROM PRACTICING THE GOOD HEART. For me this is very important.

Note: The use of Buddha of Wealth is debatable whether it was really the term use. However, some scholars argue that sometimes Buddha is use every time there was selfless act done out of extreme compassion.

Buddhism is all about non – materialistic, and I think it’s teaching about wealth and being non – materialistic perfectly compliment each other. If you are wealthy and is non – materialistic then you have practiced or is practicing one of the greatest dharma.

When Jonathan Ciliberto, a famous writer and critic of books especially Buddhist books, reviewed the book “A Shower of Jewels: Deities of Wealth” he wrote that “a lack of money is an obstacle to practice” to dharma or Buddhism. He further stated that, “Poverty itself, can make practice difficult. It is difficult enough to find birth in the precious human realm, our opportunity to practice the Dharma, without adding to suffering with the burden of poverty. One of the great perfections of practice is generosity—helping all sentient being. Instead of thinking of wealth as selfish (or feeling guilt about its accumulation), we should instead consider the Buddhist concept that wealth can be a virtuous means to help others.”

In Christianity or even in the West (generally speaking) there is some stigma attached to the idea of accumulating wealth when discussing spirituality and generosity.

Venerable Zasep Rinpoche, during a teaching at Gaden Choling explained that in eastern countries wealth practice is not frowned upon as it might be in western cultures. (I would like to clarify that eastern here refers to non – Christian countries). He further added that while meditating on and trying to accumulate wealth might be perceived as the opposite of generosity, as always with Buddhist philosophy, it comes down to intention. If the intention is to achieve virtuous deeds like generosity, healing, relieving the suffering of others and oneself, then wealth practice and accumulation is a meritorious deed.

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. Approximately 1.5 inches in height.

In the book “World of Transformation: Tibetan Art of Wisdom and Compassion”, which was authored by Marilyn Rhie, David Jackson and Robert A.F. Thurman, the father of Hollywood actress Uma Thurman who happens to be a good friend of Dalai Lama and Tibetan Buddhism scholar and professor, it stated that, These deities of prosperity are… benevolent, and are helpful to spiritual people by supporting the educational purpose of life in the Buddhist perspective.”

It makes sense, if we live in poverty and if we constantly look for money for our day to day survival, we won’t be able to progress in our spiritual growth and more importantly we are unable to help other.

The purpose of practicing wealth rituals or wearing or carrying amulets with high wealth effect like the Vajrapani Ruel, Surangama Mantra Amulet or the Traditional Sutra Amulets or wealth amulets like the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is mainly to provide the means to help oneself and others. Its purpose is not to live a life of luxury but it’s to remove the obstacle to the spiritual practice like eliminating poverty, which is certainly a hindrance.

This reminds me of people like Nanay Socorro Ramos (of the famous National Bookstore) or Bill Gates, or some of my readers like the one in Malaysia or Davao (BM) who despite of being really rich, they maintain a humble and most of all they benefit other people with their wealth. They use their money to help other people.

Now is there anything wrong in wanting to get rich, have money and become wealthy? Well, Buddhism says if the intention is pure, then there is nothing wrong with it.

The Miracle of Receiving Money from An Aunt: A Financial Miracle of A Reader Who Got the Avatamsaka Traditional Sutra Amulet!

Published Abril 6, 2017 by jptan2012

I wanted to limit the sharing the miraculous personal testimonies of my readers to those that are simple so that my readers wouldn’t start to think that all miracles are always spectacular. However, this is one miracle that is too good to not be written about.

Gerald is a 31 years old employee. He is the eldest of 4 kids, the youngest is graduating in college this 2017. According to Gerald, they can’t be called rich, but they have a comfortable life in the sense that they can eat whenever they want, they can eat what they want, and the family was able to travel to some Asian countries every three years or so, as long as they plan for it in advance.

His father passed away when he was only 20 years of age, but aside from longing his father’s love nothing changed much because his mom is a take-charge mom and when he the father passed away, Gerald’s mom resigned from her job to take charge of the business of his her husband.

Last 2014 she finally sold the business, and according to Gerald, their mother informed them that she was able to sell it at a very good price, she was able to sell it about 50% more than her intended price. Her mother then concentrated being a real estate sales manager. This is something that she did even when she was managing the business. At the same time she got several properties as an investment, which she plans to rent out.

October last year, Gerald’s mom had a stroke and half of her body was paralyzed. Her speech was also severely affected.

Since a lot of the money generated from the sale of the business was invested on several real estate properties, they are not financially liquid. However, with the high hospital bills and therapy sessions and high cost of medicines, her money in the bank was used up. It was up to Gerald and her other siblings to support her. Then, she had another stroke and this time in the hospital was longer, bills were really high. And so Gerald thought of selling some the properties that her mom has acquired. They will do this with a heavy heart because he knows that their mom and dad worked hard for all of it. But there is not much choice.

But when they started selling a particular property, there was no strong prospective buyer and some people will inquire but there was no strong lead. They were starting to become desperate.Gerald Maglalang

It was Gerald’s sister who told Gerald about me and at that time that they requested for a copy of a Traditional Sutra Amulet (TSA), Gerald was still in doubt whether he is just wasting money in getting a TSA. But he decided to get one. What he got is the Avatamsaka Sutra Amulet. That was less than a month ago. And so this is what he has to say, which I have translated verbatim or as close as possible.

Good news JP. You told me that it would take about three to seven months before I experience a miracle from the Avatamsaka Sutra Amulet but it has only been about 3 weeks and I already got what I wished for.

You were right when you said that I should expect a miracle but I should not dictate it. Because at that time the miracle that I was hoping for is for us to be able to sell one of land properties so we can have money. But what we got was so much better. My aunt paid the money that she owes my mom. We didn’t know that she owes my mom money. It’s really a miracle nobody was collecting from her, and we don’t know for sure that she owes my mom money, although we have some doubts. The money that we got is enough for us for what we need to pay off and we also got some extra from it.

Thanks a lot for everything JP.

Apparently, her aunt owes their mother about 2 million pesos. They have doubts about this but is not sure because their mom never told them whether it pushed through or not, not a single one of them was able to ask their aunt because they were afraid that it might offend her. But one day, her aunt just told them that she owes their money and decided to pay off her debt. While it took her awhile to tell them that she owes their money is something that they can only guess. But what is important is that the money has been paid off at a time that they need it most.

If this is not a miracle, I don’t know what is.

avatamsaka-sutra

One of 5 copies of the Avatamsaka Sutra (Kuan Yin Bodhisattva Chapter) that’s available here in the Philippines.

Now Gerald told me that he knows that his mother will get better. That is still with the help of the Avatamsaka.

If Nothing Seems to Go Right and Everything Seems to Go Wrong in Your Life You Might Have An Afflicted Bazi! – How Chanting of Mantras and Offering of Flowers Can Help!

Published Marso 25, 2017 by jptan2012

I once had a person come to me to tell me that everything seems to go wrong with his life and nothing seems to go right. In fact, he said, everything is so wrong in his life that he really wants to commit suicide already. He is seriously contemplating taking his own life.

My first recommendation for him is to immediately get professional counseling. I’m certainly not equipped to handle this kind of case, at least, not in the perspective of professional help. I’m glad that he took my advice and has started to get better. He has become a little bit more equipped in handling his problems.

Nevertheless, he still contacted me to ask for help because while counseling has helped him get better with how he copes with his problems, the problems are still there. You see he really has a lot of problem. He lost his only child then his wife left him for another man, and she took all their savings. Furthermore, his mother got sick and paralyzed, while his father continue to launder their money for his mistress.

He certainly has a lot of problems and upon checking his Bazi Chart / Paht Chee Chart it shows that his Bazi is terribly afflicted. There were a lot of conflicting elements and signs!

It’s quite difficult to cure this kind of problem. The Vajrapani Ruel(1) may help things get better a little but it certainly will not or it will take a lot of year for it to cure the afflicted Bazi. One way to cure this is to use the Ing Deng Pay(1), which I have written before. However, the Ing Deng Pay(2) or Landlord’s Tablet is quite pricey. And this particular person is unable to afford it. And so he decided to simply get the Vajrapani Ruel(2) and resorted to chanting mantras. Told him to chant the following mantras:

MANTRA OF BODHISATTVA KUAN YIN: OM MANI PADME HUM

MANTRA OF MEDICINE BUDDHA: TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKNADZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA

MANTRA OF BODHISATTVA VAJRAPANI: OM VAJRAPANI HUM

Also told him to offer flowers and half – sack to one sack of rice everyday to the image of Bodhisattva Guan Yin (also spelled or called as Kuan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon).

He followed my advice and was told that things are a little better than before.

I believe that if one has at least one powerful amulet and is sincere and is able to chant mantras at the deep meditative level, no matter how bad is your bazi is, things will get better.

2017 Year of the Fire Rooster Feng Shui Forecast for the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac Signs (Chinese Horoscope)

Published Enero 6, 2017 by jptan2012

I have been receiving calls and messages and even emails asking about my annual forecast. I’m sorry for the delay, my forecast is manually analyzed so it does take some time. While most Feng Shui sites has a pool of geomancers who do their forecast, this blog only has me to do everything, and coupled with the hectic December, it really takes time for me to finish this tedious process. I also make sure that I cross reference important points with my Guru Lama and my Feng Shui teachers.

At the end, it took me several days to finish working on the charts and analysis. And it took me 10 days to write this long but simple post. Because I want to make sure that I put the right words into the analysis and the right cure. You will notice that I have streamed line the cures, I decided to simply put the best cures that I believe will work. As a Feng Shui writer I realized that I should act like a doctor and not confused my readers with a lot of ‘medicine’ I should simply recommend the best cure I think that will work.

Also, in the past years I get a lot of complaints and request that I should put the pictures of the cures and enhancers everytime I mention them, because not all of you read all the forecast of each of the animal sign. I have heeded that request so that you don’t have to check online if you’re not familiar with mentioned cure or enhancer.

So after this long tedious process, which consists of 22 pages and 13,752 words (the normal newspaper article is between 500 to 1,000 words) without the Notes and footnotes on the photos, I humbly present to you my annual forecast for each of the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac (Chinese Horoscope).

I will start with the good news, while there are signs that need to be extra careful like the Horse and the Sheep, this year there is no single Chinese Animal Zodiac Sign that will experience what the Ox went through in 2016. In 2016 amongst the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac Signs, the Ox experienced a largely strong Wu Wang (#5 Flying Star, Five Yellow Star) and was devoid of any good stars, not to mention that the year was ruled by the #2 Flying Star or Illness Star, a star that causes not only illness but accidents also.

This year, although the #5 Flying Star, which is also known as the Wu Wang or 5 – Yellow Star and will be alternately called as such on this post, is still quite strong. Although not as strong as that of in 2016, but one the Horse and the Sheep, also including the Monkey has to be careful because these two dreaded stars lands side by side. Thus increasing it’s negative effects. But still unlike in 2016, all the animal signs this year has some good stars, unlike what happened to the Ox, which was totally devoid of any good stars. On top of that the year is ruled by the #1 Flying Star also known as Victory Star. And having the White Victory Star will also aid some good energies to the both the Sheep and the Horse.

There has been some confusion as to which animal sign has the best luck this year. Some say it’s the Rat, but I personally consider that it is the Ox; the only difference is that the Rat has some constant positive energy across all age groups, while with the Ox, born in 1961, where they experience bad financial luck. However, this can be remedied.

On a personal note, I’m quite happy that the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey is about to end already. This is because both on a personal level and as a Feng Shui writer or Feng Shui blogger and as reluctant Feng Shui consultant, I personally saw or heard a lot of troubling stories about people who were severely affected by the really strong Wu Wang this year that hit the Northeast, thereby severely affecting all those who stays in the Northeast and people who were born under the year of the Ox and Tiger. This coupled with the #2 Flying Star, which is the ruling star of 2016, thus creating a lot of accidents and illness. I personally have people who are relatively close to me or readers or their relatives and friends who had accidents and or fell ill and passed away. A lot of them are Ox and Tiger born. In fact, in Hollywood, they called these negative things that happened in 2016 as the ‘Curse of 2016’. And I bet a lot of you might have encountered some people who have experienced a lot of negative things, especially those who got sick or died. Obviously, not all these people are born in the years of the Ox or Tiger, but I’m willing to bet that a lot of them are and a lot of them are and/or a number of them fell ill and passed away without so much warning. All these are happening because of the very strong Wu Wang and the dominating energy of the year, which is the Illness Star. Again the illness star is a star that causes illness and accidents also.

The truth is according to my Guru Lama all the killings that happened in the Philippines, and also abroad are effects of the illness star. Chances are this will lessen on 2017, but if we are to look at the annual Bazi chart, it will not be totally stopped.

I also would like to note that Chinese New Year officially comes in on January 28, 2017 and the full shifting of energies comes in on Feb. 4, 2017. However, again don’t be surprised if you feel the shift of the energies as early as now. And there is also a prevalent Feng Shui theory that the negative energies become harsher towards the end of the lunar year. At this point, I still would like to warn people who are in the Northeast, and people born in the year of the Ox and Tiger that the month of January is still not a very good month. The way to deal with this is simply to put your protective amulets and continue to chant mantras, recite sutras, and pray hard.

NOTE: That on the Year of the Fire Rooster this 2017, everybody should try to citrine, either as a bracelet or necklace or ring. It is also quite important that all of us should wear a gold Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (Earth Store Bodhisattva) pendant.

citrine2

One sure way of knowing that your Citrine is that it has bubble – like inclusions and has some cracks inside. The shade of one single stone is also seldom constant, you’ll find some parts darker some parts almost white. These are signs of a real citrine, otherwise if its perfect it’s either fake or cost a thousand fold more expensive.

esbpendant

Look for gold Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva / Earth Store Bodhisattva similar to this one. Please note that this seems to be Bronze. However, what we need is gold.

Anyway, before I proceed to the main forecast, this year I would like to keep it simple. In the previous years, I always go into detail with the Bazi or Paht Chee analysis of each animal sign and I also discuss all the causes of the good or bad luck of an animal sign. I have been receiving emails that some people find it quite confusing. So I have decided to keep it simpler, although I will still put some of the cause, because I believe that educating my readers about the stars will help you arm yourself in the future without relying too much of Feng Shui consultants or Feng Shui writers like me.

Here now is my 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster Feng Shui Forecast for the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac Signs (Chinese Horoscope).


RAT

RAT Chinese Zodiac

General Traits: Artistic, imaginative, creative, talented, charming, resourceful, opportunist, ambitious, lively, pleasure-seeking, problem solver, resilient, sometimes unscrupulous, selfish, short tempered, spendtrift, insecure, usually successful, tend to gossip.

This is going to be quite a good year for the people born under the sign of the Rat. This is a year where you will shine and this is a year wherein you should not be timid and you should take hold of the blessings that surround you. You have a very good life chi and spirit chi, this means that you will be ‘full of life’ both literally and figuratively speaking. This year you will see yourself reaching new heights of success and with an extra boost of morale.

Change is also one of the keywords for people born under the year of the Rat. I’m not referring to change of career, although it can be that also, but you might be surprised with some unexpected upward development in your place of work or business. This is especially true for the 45 – year old rats.

Although I mentioned change as one of the keywords of your luck this year, this doesn’t mean that the instability that usually comes with change will be present. No you will prove that stability can be present in change. In fact, you will find yourself financially stable. If you want to enhance this good luck, it will be nice if you can carry a Vajrapani Ruel to give you that boost of positive luck and make it your winning edge, or you wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva made of gold and as a pendant.

Your main star in the Flying Star Formula shows that you have the #6 Flying Star, which is also known as the Heaven’s Blessing and Mentor Star. As the word connote it is a star that helps you tap into the blessings from heaven and also this is a star that gives you the blessings of a mentor. Meaning this year, especially when you need it most, you will encounter people who would be willing to help you achieve your goal. Mentor here means these are people of stature who can help pave the way for you, but it also means it can be friends, family or colleagues who can help you in your path to success. You just have to be open and sensitive as whom these people are. In Feng Shui it is advisable to activate this star by inviting an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity or Taoist Gods into your life both as image that can be placed at home or something that you wear. For this year I strongly suggest the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva made of gold. Gold for the high yang energy that comes with it’s metal element that we need for resources.

The other good news is that the Rat also as a Big Auspicious star lend to him from the side of his zodiac ally the Ox. This is quite good because this star helps to bring in good luck or good fortune. For this year, activating this star will help bring in tremendous amount of wealth and fortune. You can activate this by inviting an image of a golden Ox (again gold because you will need the yang energy of gold and at the same we all need to strengthen the metal element for us to activate the resources energy, which will spell a lot of difference in this year’s luck as shown in the year’s Bazi chart). And as mentioned the year’s success and failure of each person is determined by the power you hold and so aside from the citrine that we all have to wear, in activating the Big Auspicious Star, it will be good if one can get the image of a golden Ox that is on top of a Jade. Jade aside from being an earth element, jade is also a symbol of power, so in activating the Big Auspicious Star, you will also need the jade to strengthen your power this year.

Unfortunately, the Rat also has some bad stars brought about by the 24 Mountain Star Formula, namely the Star of Reducing Energy and the Yearly Conflict Star.

The Star of the Reducing Energy may help weaken your life force and spirit force and physically you may also become weaker. To help protect yourself from the negative energies of this star, it may help for you to have the new Illness Suppression Amulet (I still don’t have this with me at the moment) or the Windhorse and a Wu Lou (also known as Wulou or Holy Gourd).

Remember that you are in indirect conflict with the Tai Sui (Tai Suey or Grand Duke Jupiter) God of the year. It will definitely help if you carry a Piyao (Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pixie, Pixie) that has an active stance.

In terms of over – all health forecast the 9, 33, and 69 – year –old Rats should be careful about their health. This is base on the annual Bazi Chart or Paht Chee chart of the year, then cross reference with the Bazi or Paht Chee of the Rat. This should not be a very major concern but it is best to take caution. To manage this, one can wear the Illness Suppression Amulet or an image of Medicine Buddha or a Wulou.medicine buddha pendantb

The Wealth and Financial Forecast for the people born under the sign of the Rat is extremely positive, this is again base on the elemental formula base on the Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart. However, it might not come as easy as for the 21, 57, and 81 – year – old Rats. But carrying a Vajrapani Ruel with you should help negate this slight imbalance.

OX

Ox Chinese Zodiac

Very intelligent, logic and clear thinking, calm but stubborn, independent, trusting, industrious, deep and original in thought, reliable, a good leader, intolerant, peace loving.

I’m so excited to write about this year’s forecast for the Ox. You see when I was writing about what’s in store for people born under the sign of the Ox for the 2016 forecast, I was struggling really hard to ensure that I will not sound so pessimistic, because of the very grim prognosis for people under the sign of the Ox. I still remember that I was struggling to say something good and positive, which was made really difficult because all the formula shows only negative things, and indeed 2016 was one of the worst time for people born under the sign of the Ox (and Tiger). Although, we’ll have to wait until January 28, 2017 and for the stabilization of the energies of Feb. 4, 2017, the good news for people born under the sign of the Ox is that if last year, Ox has the worst luck, this 2017 Year of the Fire Monkey, Ox born people has the best luck!

If we are to look at the elemental formula forecast base on the Bazi Chart or Paht Chee chart of the year and cross-referenced with the Ox’s own Bazi Chart, the luck of Ox is only average. This is although technically speaking that ruling Chinese Animal Zodiac of the year, the Rooster, is an ally of the Ox. This has something to do with the relationships of the elements base on Paht Chee chart of the year. However, this shouldn’t be a cause for despair, because both the Flying Stars Formula and the 24 Mountain Stars Formula shows only good stars!!! If last year the Ox is surrounded only of negative stars from all formulas, this 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster the Ox is only surrounded by good stars, and that more than compensates for the average elemental luck. Still, the average elemental luck base on the Paht Chee should be remedied, especially towards the end of the year the energies will tend to be hostile. For this, I highly recommend that all Ox – born people should wear a citrine. It can be a bracelet, a pendant, or a ring. In fact, I recommend getting a new set of citrines to make the energies fresh. Then this average elemental forecast or luck should be boost by wearing an image of the Earth Store Bodhisattva made of gold. Again, it is important to wear it in gold because one needs the yang energy of the gold and we need to activate the resources energies by using strengthening our metal element. Earth Store Bodhisattva will also be the protector for the hostile energies towards the end of the year.

People born under the sign of the Ox enjoy a harmonious relationship of the energies thus paving the way for a smooth flow of energy (most of the time). Ox born people has the Spiritual Chi and Life Chi needed to rise above problems and obstacles that they might encounter this year. Although this is actually only average, the natural harmonious energies in favor of the Ox should make this stronger. But the best way to further strengthen this is simply to wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) as a gold pendant.

Most Feng Shui experts and consultants, especially my Feng Shui teacher, believes that there is something major good that will happen to most Ox – born people.

While in 2016 the Ox has the dreaded Wu Wang (#5 Flying Stars, Five Yellow Star) as their ruling star, this year the Ox has the #4 Flying Star also known as Romantic and Scholastic Star. For single Ox this means that there is a stronger possibility of finding one’s love. For those who are partnered or who are attached, this means that your love for each other will be stronger, but it could also mean the possibility of the a 3rd party getting involved in one of you or both of you. The usual cure for this is to have the image of a rooster with a fan. However, this year the rooster is afflicted with the #3 Flying Star also known as the Argument Star so bringing in this symbol will make couples argue. So instead you can put an amethyst geode at the foot of your bed tied with a red string. Having the Surangama Mantra Amulet should also protect you from 3rd party interference.

Surangama Mantra Amulet N

Pure Land Buddhists believes that when you wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet, heavenly beings that has an affinity with you will hover over you.

But this also means that scholastic luck is going to be good this year. For students, you’ll find yourself learning the lessons easier. And for those who are involve in careers, or businesses, or jobs that involves research this should also mean that this should be a good year for you. Furthermore, it is surrounded by the good flying stars 168!

As I said, last year even the 24 Mountain Stars formula only shows negative stars. This year, the Ox is only surrounded by good stars. The first of these good stars from the 24 Mountain Stars formula is the Earth Seal Star, this stars helps boost your life chi but at the same time it help strengthen your stability. To further strengthen this again it would be wise to wear a gold Earth Store Bodhisattva pendant.

The Ox also has the Big Auspicious Stars, and I’m not talking about one Big Auspicious Star, but two Big Auspicious Stars! This is, well to be redundant about it, extremely auspicious! This has the potential to give the Ox – born people some windfall luck, especially about unexpected income or wealth! Furthermore, this may help bring an Ox person to a new level of success in terms of career or business! There is no need for the Ox to activate the said star because unlike the Ox it landed on the Ox’s sector.

The Ox – born people will also enjoy good health. However, the 32 and 68 – year – old Ox can be prone to some illness or accidents. So it is better to wear the Illness Suppression Amulet or an image of the Medicine Buddha or a Medicine Buddha prayer wheel.

I’m sure the Ox – born people will be very happy to find out that generally speaking wealth luck is going to be really good! This is especially true for the 44 and 68 – year old Ox. This is where I slightly differ in perspective, and upon confirmation with my Feng Shui teacher he agrees with me that the 80 – year – old Ox also has a good wealth luck, it may not be as good as the 44 and 68 – years – old, but still good. However, amongst the Ox – born people, the 20-year – old and the 55-year – old has law wealth luck. In fact, some Feng Shui expert will put it as bad. This has something to do with 20 and 55 – year – old elemental luck. But there’s no need to worry because you can simply invite the wealth luck of the ‘other’ Ox. You do this by wearing or carrying an image of a gold Ox (pendant) on top of a Jade. Why gold? Gold again for the yang energy and the energy of wealth that is found in gold, again jade because it is a symbol of power and also has the earth element, which is the direct energy of power this year. Again, as mentioned this year who has power has the upper hand on everything.

goldoxjade

In getting this look for an Ox that looks ‘young’ and in active stance but still relax. This one is a perfect example. This one also has the symbol of luck inscribed on the Ox.

TIGER

1TIGER

General Traits: Lucky, powerful, proud, aggressive, courageous, a good leader, vivacious, high self-confident, energetic, impulsive, dignified, handsome, self-concerned, arrogant.

In 2016, the Tiger has the second worst luck and was only saved by a good star from the 24 Mountain Stars Formula. This year, the Tiger also enjoys almost the same luck with that of the Ox, but is tempered by some bad stars from the 24 Mountain Stars Formula. So you see, it was the reversed of what happened last time. But what a Tiger – born person should remember is that while there some obstacles that might have to be dealt with, the 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster can have some very auspicious blessings and great success in store for you.

Remember that you are almost as lucky as the Ox this year, but unlike the Ox where they seem to be always met by blessings and opportunities, you will have to look or open the door yourself. You need to be aggressive. To help take away these obstacles to your full success, I highly recommend that you carry the Vajrapani Ruel, which is considered as the most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon. The Vajrapani Ruel should also help in strengthening your weak life chi and inner chi. And to strengthen your power and put stability to the already conflicting year as discussed in the first part of the 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster forecast, wearing a gold Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) pendant should help you achieve and access the luck that is already for you.

Like the Ox, you also have the #4 Flying Star, which is also known as the Romantic and Scholastic Star. While in 2016 the Tiger and the Ox has the dreaded Wu Wang (#5 Flying Stars, Five Yellow Star) as their ruling star, this year the Tiger and the Ox has the #4 Flying Star also known as Romantic and Scholastic Star. For single Tigers this means that there is a stronger possibility of finding one’s love. For those who are partnered or who are attached, this means that your love for each other will be stronger, but it could also mean the possibility of the a 3rd party getting involved in one of you or both of you. The usual cure for this is to have the image of a rooster with a fan. However, this year the rooster is afflicted with the #3 Flying Star also known as the Argument Star so bringing in this symbol will make couples argue. So instead you can put an amethyst geode at the foot of your bed tied with a red string. Having the Surangama Mantra Amulet should also protect you from 3rd party interference.

Surangama Mantra Amulet N

Pure Land Buddhists believes that when you wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet, heavenly beings that has an affinity with you will hover over you.

But this also means that scholastic luck is going to be good this year. For students, you’ll find yourself learning the lessons easier. And for those who are involve in careers, or businesses, or jobs that involves research this should also mean that this should be a good year for you.

Luckily you also have the Big Auspicious Star, and like the Ox you don’t need to activate this star. This star should help you achieve new heights in your career and wealth luck. And this should also temper the Robbery Star from the 24 Mountain Star Formula that goes directly into your sector. The Robbery Star as the name implies loss from malicious intent of wealth, recognition, or even good name. More importantly this also strengthen the possibility of a 3rd party interference in relationships of those who are already partnered or attached. But putting an amethyst geode with a red string and wearing the Surangama Mantra Amulet should help prevent the interference of a 3rd party.

Aside from the Robbery Star, you also have the side affliction of the 3 Killings (Three Killings). But with the Vajrapani Ruel this would have been addressed already.

Generally speaking the health forecast for all Tiger – born people are not so good to average only. But the 31 and 55 years old Tigers should take the most caution. Remember in Feng Shui illness can also mean accidents that would result to illness and maybe even death. So it will be good for all Tigers to have either the Illness Suppression Amulet, or Medicine Buddha pendant, or Medicine Buddha prayer wheel, or a Wu Lou (Wulou, Holy Gourd).

Again the wealth forecast should be good, especially if a Tiger person is able to create his own opportunity. So it will help if a Tiger – born person will wear a citrine with a 9 – eye DZI and also wear or invite an image of Kuan Kong (also spelled as Guan Gong or called as Guan Yu or Sangharama Bodhisattva) into their home.

RABBIT

RABBIT chinese zodiac

General Traits: Talented, ambitious, shrewd, patient, cautious, diplomatic, sophisticated, cultured, old-fashioned, gentle, good-heated, symphatetic, affectionate, loving, often artistic, self-indulge, over-attach to people/objects, emotional, moody.

Like the Tiger – born people, the Rabbit also has a lot of potential this 2017, but you shouldn’t be timid about it. There is a wide range of opportunities and luck for you as a long as you ‘create’ the opportunity and look for the door of good luck yourself. This year, the Rabbit should focus more on his or her professional life rather than dwell on family life. I’m not saying that one should be simply career oriented; it’s just that a Rabbit – born person should learn more to handle the pressures of a family life that may be a little troublesome. But simply dwelling on them might create more problems. However, for these potential family problems you can simply put a Traditional Sutra Amulet in your house and should help ease the possible occurrence of a family tension. You can also invite the image of Kuan Yin and this should also help ease family concerns. And to be able to create more opportunities for yourself, have the Vajrapani Ruel or an image of Kuan Kong worn as pendant.

The Tiger – born person should also realize that the best thing that happened to them this 2017 is the landing of the #8 Flying Star also known as the Wealth Star into their sector. This means money luck or financial luck should be within reach as long one creates an opportunity for it to come in. To further enhance this star you can invite as a gold or jade pendant the image of either Maitreya Buddha (Happy Fat Buddha), Kuan Yin (also spelled and called as Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon), Sangharama Bodhisattva (also known as Qie Lan Pu Sa, Kuan Kong, Kuan Yu, Guan Gong, Guan Yu) or Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva / Earth Store Bodhisattva (gold only).

Unfortunately, the presence of the Three Killings in the sector might pose some problem. However, this is a star from the 24 Mountain Stars Formula that is quite easy to deal with. All you have to do is carry the image of the Three Celestial Guardians, namely the Piyao (Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pi Xie, Pixie) or the Kalachakra pendant made of gold or jade or clear quartz.

The other cause for concern is the presence of the Natural Disaster Star, despite of it’s name the Natural Disaster Star can be a natural disaster or man – made. For this 2017, this may mean that you would be severely affected by natural disaster, but the way I read it and analyze it is more with the Man – made disaster. Like the Ox you might be greatly affected by the possibility of the man – made disaster that may happen on the 3rd or 4th quarter of the year. To protect yourself it is important to wear the Kalachakra pendant made of gold or jade or clear quartz. And also a gold Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) pendant. This should be done even before the entry of the Chinese New Year!

The Rabbit – born people is directly confronting the Tai Sui god of the year. Thus it is important to appease the Tai Sui (also spelled as Tai Suey or called as Grand Duke Jupiter) by wearing an image of the Piyao (Piyao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pi Xie, Pixie) and or participate in a Tai Suey Ritual.

piyao-pendant

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

Health wise the Rabbits are getting an average reading but the 30, 54, and 90 – years – old Rabbit needs to take extra precaution. It is advisable for them to have the Illness Suppression Amulet or an image of the Medicine Buddha worn as a pendant or a Wu Lou (Wulou or Holy Gourd) also worn as pendant.

Wealth forecast for Rabbit – born people are generally good. They just have to be aggressive and use wisdom to create opportunities. However, because of the side affliction with the Robbery Star they also have the potential to be robbed off of this wealth luck. Special attentions are addressed to the 30 and 66 years – old Rabbit. So having either the Vajrapani Ruel or the Kalachakra pendant made of gold or jade or clear quartz should definitely remedy this.

DRAGON

DRAGON chinese zodiac

General Traits:

While it won’t be a very easy year, your affinity with the ruling sign of the year, the Rooster, should give you some very positive chi to help you become successful. It will be a year wherein hardworking Dragons will be rewarded with some wonderful career and financial blessings. The keywords for Dragon – born people are perseverance and optimism.

As mentioned in the post entitled “2017 YEAR OF THE FIRE ROOSTER FENG SHUI FORECAST BASE ON THE BAZI CHART, FLYING STARS FORMULA, AND 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA: A BALANCED CHART BUT A CONFLICTING YEAR (PART 1)”, this is going to be a year that is going to be ruled by power, so as a Dragon, you naturally have this energy, however, some of you will have to really enhanced it. You can do this by wearing a Ru Yi (also spelled as Ruyi), which is called a Power Scepter. Remember, things will only not go as smooth as you want it to be if you are not able to take the reign of power within your hands. People must see that power in you. Another very powerful tool to help you have power is for you to wear an image of Sakyamuni Buddha (Shakyamuni Buddha) in jade or gold. Wearing an image of Kuan Kong (also spelled and called Guan Gong, Kuan Yu, Guan Yu, Sangharama Bodhisattva, Qie Lan Pu Sa, Guan Sheng Di Jun) in jade.

You should also be constantly be able to plan ahead and try to foresee some problems that may arise.

Your energy or life chi might be a little low this year, but you have the power of the Lung Ta (Windhorse) with you and so this should help you along the way.windhorse-opt

One really wonderful news is that you have that the #9 Flying Star, which also known as the Multiplying and Future Prosperity Star. This star is neither good nor bad, but it has the power to multiply your karma. It means, that if you plan good deeds, you multiply your good karma and it gives you a future full of prosperity. However, if you do bad deeds, it will multiply your bad karma. So I write this in a positive note because that assumption is Dragon – born people will want to plant good seeds. To help enhance this star one can wear the Surangama Mantra Amulet.

Surangama Mantra Amulet N

Pure Land Buddhists believes that when you wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet, heavenly beings that has an affinity with you will hover over you.

Another good news is that the 24 Mountain Stars brings you the Small Auspiciousness both direct and indirect thru the side sector. This is quite food because you will be blessed with small opportunities which you have the potential to make big. You should learn to be more aggressive. A timid Dragon will not go anywhere, so you have to be compassionately aggressive. Note the key words are COMPASSIONATELY AGGRESSIVE. One other way for you to tap into this power and at the same time resources is to wear the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) pendant made of gold. According to Sakyamuni Buddha, Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha is the source of power of the earth and so wearing His image should help you have the earth power right from it’s source. But at the same time the gold represents resources and it carries with it an intrinsic yang energy that we all need.

esbpendant

Look for gold Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva / Earth Store Bodhisattva similar to this one. Please note that this seems to be Bronze. However, what we need is gold.

Unfortunately, there is some bad news also brought about by the 24 Mountain Stars Formula. First, you have the Yearly Killing Star, which is a star that has the power to bring in a some problems and hindrance to blessings and success. Please note that this star resides in the sector of the Dragon, so its effect is quite strong. To help counter this, you should wear the Kalachakra pendant either in gold or jade or clear quartz.

Furthermore, you also have the Star of Three Killings (3 Killings), which can cause some trouble also. But it is quite easy to deal with this star. You can simply carry an image of the Three Celestial Guardians or again the Kalachakra (made of gold or jade or clear quartz) worn as a pendant.

The 17, 53, and 77 years old Dragon should be careful with their health or safety. You can wear either the Illness Suppression Amulet or an image of the Medicine Buddha.

The 29 and 65 – years –old Dragon will have the best financial luck. While the 53 – year – old Dragon will have moderate money luck. But then again it is there you will just have to exert a little effort to really be able to tap into it. And as mentioned above all Dragons will need to have power to tap into their wealth. Remember earth element controls power this year so wearing some gemstones should really help. Citrine should be the best because it is also a money stone. The 41 – year – old Dragon though has the tendency to lose some money this year. They will have to be really careful and it will be extremely good if they have the Vajrapani Ruel with them.

SNAKE

SNAKE chinese zodiac

General Traits: Proud, determined, wise, ambitious, talented in many directions, almost always successful, courageous when necessary, passionate, intelligent, quick-witted, cool-headed, charming, mistrusting.

While there are some minor blockage cause by a side affliction, this year is going to be quite a good year for people born under the sign of the Snake. It is not going to an immediate successful year, but rather it will be steady gradual way to success and blessings.

This should be a good year to start and planning for your long-term future. Remember, don’t expect something outrageously wonderful but rather learn to take pleasure in the small miracles that will often come to you in the Year of the Fire Rooster. These small miracles when harnessed properly may slowly bring you to new heights of success and wealth. The challenge is recognizing these small miracles.

One of the best news for the Snake – born people is that you have the #9 Flying Stars, which is also known as the Multiplying and Future Prosperity Star. This star basically doubles your good karma and will help you have wonderful blessings in the future. But remember it also doubles your negative karma, so be good and think positive things only. To help enhance this star, one can wear the Surangama Mantra Amulet.

Surangama Mantra Amulet N

Pure Land Buddhists believes that when you wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet, heavenly beings that has an affinity with you will hover over you.

Sadly, you are in side conflict or you are side afflicted with the Wu Wang or Five Yellow Star or #5 Flying Star. This is only a side affliction a gold Kalachakra pendant should be able to help and protect you from this star. However, you may still opt to get the Five Element Pagoda if you so wish.

The wonderful news is that you also have the Small Auspiciousness star, while this stars brings only ‘small’ blessings by way of opportunities, when you learn to recognize these blessings you have the potential to make it really big. One other way for you to tap into this power and at the same time resources is to wear the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) pendant made of gold. According to Sakyamuni Buddha, Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha is the source of power of the earth and so wearing His image should help you have the earth power right from it’s source. But at the same time the gold represents resources and it carries with it an intrinsic yang energy that we all need.

esbpendant

Look for gold Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva / Earth Store Bodhisattva similar to this one. Please note that this seems to be Bronze. However, what we need is gold.

The 52 and 76 – years – old Snake should be careful and take care of themselves because they are quite prone to illness and accidents. It will be wise for them to have either the Illness Suppression Amulet or the image of Medicine Buddha worn as pendant, or a Wu Lou (Wulou, Holy Gourd).

The 16, 40, and 76 – years – old Snakes will need the Vajrapani Ruelto help enhance their financial and wealth luck.

Vajrapani Ruel

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

HORSE

Horse chinese zodiac

General Traits: Mostly Popular and loves the attention, admired, friendly, sexually-appealing, carefree, optimistic, pleasure-seeking, imaginative, inquisitive, hardworking, loyal, good talker, capable, practical, energetic, impulsive, moody and egoistic

While it is not as bad as what the Ox had to go through in 2016, it is still a rough time ahead for the Horse – born people. But the key element here is that they only have to see what a lot of Ox – born people had to go through in 2016 and the Horse should know that they would survive 2017. Learn from the Ox be resilient but importantly one has to prepare for 2017!

Horse are sometimes quite impatient, remember that, and remember that you will need patience. Patience, perseverance, determination and also faith in yourself and in the higher being be it Buddha, Jesus Christ, Allah!

But more than that you have to realize that you have to lie low ad avoid taking risk. Whether it is business risk, or risky physically avoid them. But remember, sometimes, although we don’t recognize this a lot, sometimes it is risk about our family members. Don’t be complacent.

Unlike the Ox last 2016, this 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster, the Horse is gifted with a good elemental luck, which is base on the year’s Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart and cross referenced with the Paht Chee Chart of the Horse. You, the Horse, have good life chi and spirit chi and so these two good things will help propagate you to moving forward. You can further enhance this with the combined powers of wearing the Lung Ta (Windhorse) and having the Vajrapani Ruel with you. You will need two to help counteract the tremendous negative energy around you.

The worst thing that affects you now is the presence of the Wu Wang or #5 Flying Star (Five Yellow Star) the most dreadful star amongst all the stars. Then you are also side afflicted by the #7 Flying Star known as the Violence Star.

Let’s discuss the Wu Wang first. The Wu Wang this year is stronger than usual. Maybe not as strong as it was in 2016 in the Northeast, but it is still quite stronger than usual. Regularly speaking the Wu Wang or the 5 – Yellow Star is naturally considered as a dreadful star because it has the power to make really good things turn to really bad things. I have seen people lose their business almost overnight because of this affliction. This 2016 alone when it affected the Northeast and the Ox and Tiger, I saw a young man who is seemingly healthy die without any warning. I know some people who just went out to unwind then went home dead because of accidents. I have seen some people who seem to be totally in control of their business who seem to have lost everything just because of as ingle mistake. I have a reader who for no apparent reason the chandelier just fell off the ceiling and hurt her. It is imperative that you protect yourself from this and you do this by wearing a gold 5 – Element Pagoda pendant (it has to be gold) and carry a Vajrapani Ruel for the added protection!

5element pagoda

Five Element Pagoda Pendant

DO NOT IGNORE THE WU WANG!

It is also imperative that you protect the South sector of your house and your office. If you have more than one house that is active (meaning where you stay every once in a while) you must protect all the South sector of all your active house. So aside from wearing the gold Five Element Pagoda pendant, you should also put the 5 – Element Pagoda (for display) in all your South sector.

In getting the Five Element Pagoda make sure also that it is something that can be opened (please see image below). Inside the top opening, instead of putting a soil, put a crystal. In that case you will still have use an earth element but with a very positive chi. Then at the bottom opening, you have to put three to five powerful amulets or mantras or sutras. I strongly recommend the following:

Please note that you should have at least have 2 of the first three suggestions.

But this is where it gets a little more troublesome. Aside from being directly afflicted with the dreaded Wu Wang, you are also side afflicted by the #7 Flying Star known as the Violent Star that brings in a lot of misfortune and also harm to those who are afflicted. Because you are already naturally weakened because of the Wu Wang, you will be more susceptible than usual to the effects of this star. To manage this star, it is highly recommended for you to wear the Kalachakra pendant (made of gold or jade or clear quartz).

KALACHAKRA PENDANT

This is a Kalachakra Pendant designed by Lillian Too. She has included some mandala sands inside the pendant to make it more potent. I personally love this pendant and has one that is made of white gold. 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 for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

And as if it is not enough you are also in side conflict with the Tai Suey (Tai Sui / Grand Duke Jupiter). To appease the Tai Sui God of the year, it is important that you wear a Piyao (Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pixie, Pi Xie).

Piyaopendant1

Gold Piyao pendants worn as amulets are also very auspicious.

Having all these afflictions may prove to be a little troublesome and a lot of these have a natural element of the earth. So it is imperative for you to seek the help of the ruler of all earth, as described by Buddha Sakyamuni (Buddha Shakyamuni). It will prove to be beneficial if you can wear an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) as a gold pendant. By wearing this it should strengthen you and give you power and also resources to give you the survival edge that you so need this 2017.

Furthermore, it will be very helpful if all Horse – born people should put a Traditional Sutra Amulet (preferably The Sutra On the Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva) inside their office and house. It is said that when you have the Traditional Sutra Amulet it is like the Buddha himself and his disciples, the Bodhisattvas, Arhats, Deities, etc. are also present.

This is a copy of the traditional SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA that my Guru Lama sent me.

Another unfortunate thing that afflicts the Horse – born people this 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster is that their health luck is not so great. So it is advisable for them to wear the Illness Suppression Amulet, or an image of the Medicine Buddha. You can also chant the Medicine Buddha Mantra: TADYATHA OM BHEKNADZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADXZA SAMUGATE SOHA. Please note that since you are heavily affected by several negative stars, the Wu Lou will not work for you.

Generally speaking money luck and financial luck doesn’t look really good for all the Horse – born people. But the 27 and 51 – years old Horse should take the most precaution. It might be good for all Horse to wear citrine, but for the 27 and 51 this is where the importance of wearing an Earth Store Bodhisattva gold pendant and having the Vajrapani Ruel will make the difference.

citRINEBEAD

This is a picture of a real citrine. Compare it with the above picture of the fake citrine. A real citrine will have inclusions.

I don’t normally talk about romance forecast, but there is some good news for single Horse – born people, and that is romance should be in the air this 2017 for them.

For married or attached Horses, this romantic energetic can either be good or bad. It can enhance your relationship with your partner, but it can also mean that there will be a third party interference. To enhance the love between you and your partner, put the Double Happiness Symbol on your headboard or at the bedside table. To protect yourself, please wear the Surangama Mantra Amulet.

Another bit of good news for the Horse – born people is that you are in side with the Small Auspiciousness Star. Although you won’t feel its effect it doesn’t mean that there is no good coming out from it. You are so side afflicted with the negative stars you won’t feel it’s effect. But this star will act as some sort of a buffer.

My last words for the Horse – born people is that this year be the egg and not the potato in the boiling water. The potato softens but the egg hardens.

SHEEP

sheep chinese zodiac

General Traits: Quiet, reserved, symphathetic, sincere, patient, unemotional, practical, realistic, common sense always prevails, optimistic, sincere, non-judgemental, ambitious, determined, can’t work under stress.

The sheep is the second most afflicted Chinese Animal Zodiac. Last year it was the Tiger, the Horse this year has it better than the Ox, and this year the Sheep has it better than the Tiger.

This is going to be a challenging year for the people born under the sign of the Sheep. Base on the chart of the Bazi there should be some sort of success, but it will be an obstacle filled path to it. So having the Vajrapani Ruel is highly recommended to make this path smoother.

Vajrapani Ruel

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

Your Lung – Ta or Windhorse is weak, and so wearing a Windhorse may prove to be helpful. A weak Lung Ta will prove to make your success a difficult thing to achieve. You can also have the Victory Banner either placed on your table or carried as a charm.

Your Life Chi is also quite weak and thus you may be more susceptible to problems and stress. It is highly suggested that you wear a gold pendant of the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) so that you will be given the extra boost with your natural earth element by the ruler of all earth energies. Furthermore, you will also need the power brought about by the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha) and the gold’s metal element should provide the resources you need to help you traverse the path to the success that is present but blocked by a lot of negative energies.

Look for gold Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva / Earth Store Bodhisattva similar to this one. Please note that this seems to be Bronze. However, what we need is gold.

One major concern is that you are afflicted by the #7 Flying Star known as the Violent Star. It is quite stronger than usual this year and so it is important that you get protected. Leaving yourself unprotected from this star may prove to be fatal both figuratively and literally. The best way to protect yourself from the effects of this star is to wear or carry with you the combined protective energies of the Vajrapani Ruel and the Kalachakra pendant (made in gold, jade or clear quartz but preferably in gold).

kalachakra pendant2

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.

Unfortunately, you are also side afflicted from the Wu Wang or the #5 Flying Star (Five Yellow Star), and this star is also stronger than usual, and you are also naturally weakened state because of the #7 Flying Star, so it is highly advisable for you to wear the gold Five Element Pagoda pendant. It is also imperative for you to protect you South with the 5 – Element Pagoda figure.

In getting the Five Element Pagoda makes sure also that it is something that can be opened (please see image below). Inside the top opening, instead of putting a soil, put a crystal. In that case you will still have use an earth element but with a very positive chi. Then at the bottom opening, you have to put three to five powerful amulets or mantras or sutras. I strongly recommend the following:

Please note that you should have at least have 2 of the first three suggestions.

Now for some good news, in your sector and on the side lands the Small Auspiciousness Star! This proves to be quite a blessing because it should help temper some of the negative effects of the negative stars that fall on your chart. And so with the protective amulets I mentioned and this two stars, you should not be affected as bad as you should be.

The health forecast for the sheep is at best average. But the ones who really needs to take precaution are the 38 and 62 – years – old Sheep. It will be advisable for them to wear either the image Medicine Buddha or the Illness Suppression Amulet.

Wealth luck is actually present for all the Sheep – born people, but it is highly deterred by the presence of the Wu Wang and the Violent Star. The most severely affected of this reverse wealth luck are the 26 and 50 – year – old Sheep. Thus it is highly advisable for them to wear an image of a Wealth God like Kuan Kong (Guan Gong, Kuan Yu, Guan Yu, Sangharama Bodhisattva, Qie Lan Pu Sa).kuan kong pendant

MONKEY

monkey chinese zodiac

General Traits: Lively, quick-witted, crafty, mercenary, opportunist, original thinker, clever, innovative, self-centred, devious,amusing, sociable, ammiable, very ambitious.

Although also afflicted with some negative stars, the 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster proves to be generally a good year for those born under the sign of the Monkey. Success is always within reach if some effort is put into it. For those who are employees, a chance of a recognition or promotion is likely to happen this year.

You have a weak life chi and so having the Vajrapani Ruel should be able to remedy this. The good news is that you a strong Spirit Chi and Windhorse or Lung – Ta, these two good energies should help propel you to success.

Vajrapani Ruel

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

Unfortunately, you are afflicted with the #7 Flying Star also known as Violent Star, this star has the possibility of to make things bad and even put you in danger both figuratively and literally. This star has proven to be fatal in the past. So it is best to protect yourself. Sometimes this is also called a Betrayal Star because it also has that effect, and with the Monkey this seems to be the energy this year. You might be betrayed by a person you trust with regards to money. To protect yourself it is important for you to wear the gold Kalachakra pendant and carry with you the Vajrapani Ruel.

kalachakra gold pendant2

This is a Kalachakra pendant released by Lillian Too. I really love this pendant but find it too expensive. 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 for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

Fortunately, you also have two Small Auspiciousness Star and these stars may bring in opportunities that may become big depending on how you harnessed them. And since power is the main energy of the year, it will be good for you to wear the image of Bodhisattva Earth Store (Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha) as a gold pendant. The Holy Bodhisattva will give you the power that you need so that you can totally harness the energies of the two Small Auspiciousness Star, and at the same the yang energy of the gold will help boost your life chi, to top it off the metal element of the gold will give you the resources that you need.

esbpendant

Look for gold Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva / Earth Store Bodhisattva similar to this one. Please note that this seems to be Bronze. However, what we need is gold.

Fortunately or unfortunately you also have the Yi Duo. This star has the power to magnify your energies so if you remain upbeat or positive the energies it attracts are also good. But if you become negative it will also attract such kind of energies. Thus it is important to remain upbeat. To help enhanced only the positive energies, it is highly suggested for you to have the Traditional Sutra Amulet, and for this purpose The Diamond Sutra is highly suggested.

diamond-sutra2

This is a copy of the big and small THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA (traditional sutra amulet and sutra amulet) that my Guru Lama sent me. They are quite limited. I only have 10 of the big ones, and 7 of the small ones.

The 25, 61, and 85 – year – old Monkey should take extra precaution about their health and be wary of possible serious accidents. So it is important for them to carry or wear the Illness Suppression Amulet.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

Wealth forecast is quite good for the Monkey in general. The 25 and 49 – year – old Monkey will enjoy a good wealth luck and financial luck. The 37 and 61 – year – old Monkey should take more precaution in their dealings. Thus it is going to be good if they either have the Surangama Mantra Amulet or an image of Kuan Kong (Guan Gong, Kuan Yu, Guan Yu, Sangharama Bodhisattva, Qie Lan Pu Sa).

ROOSTER

Like in the past years, I would like to clarify that you shouldn’t assume that if the ruling sign of the year is the same with of the your sign, it doesn’t really mean that it is good. It all depends on the Bazi Chart (Paht Chee Chart) and the stars that goes into your sector.

This year the combinations of the elements, and of the stars both from the Flying Stars Formula and the 24 – Mountain Stars Formula makes it an average or mediocre year for the people born under the sign of the Rooster.

The truth is success luck should be quite good or better than average, however, the concern here is there may be some obstacle along the way that will dampen your inner chi and life chi. This may manifest in a slightly weaker physical state and weaker determination. And as I said this year who has the power would strive, thus it is highly advisable for you to wear the image of Bodhisattva Earth Store (Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha) as a gold pendant. Earth Store Bodhisattva should provide the power that you need and at the same time the metal element of the gold will provide resources for you along the way, and the yang energy of the gold should help boost your life chi.

esbpendant

Look for gold Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva / Earth Store Bodhisattva similar to this one. Please note that this seems to be Bronze. However, what we need is gold.

Another damper of your good luck is the presence of the #3 Flying Star also known as the Argument Star. Some Feng Shui experts also call this as the Quarrelsome Star. This year you will find yourself more argumentative and short tempered. This star also has the ability to affect all kinds of relationships and thus making it shakier. Your partner will have to be more patient with you, but you yourself should realize that you are not your usual self this year. It is quite important for you to have the Surangama Mantra Amulet and also if possible the Ksitigarbha Fireball. If you have the image of Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha (Earth Store Bodhisattva), His image will naturally have the Ksitigarbha Fireball.

Remember that the Argument Star will bring more than just plain arguments. It may cause legal problems, and trust me you’re on the losing end if you go to court and you have this star.

Having either The Diamond Sutra or The Sutra On the Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva as a Traditional Sutra Amulet should greatly offer protection to you.

sutra-amulets

These are just one copy each of the very limited copies sent to me by my Guru Lama of the THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA, THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA. Sutras are also used as very powerful amulets, that is why you will often old Buddhist Chinese houses has a copy of the Sutra on their altar though they might not be reciting the sutra itself.

You are also facing the Three Killings, but carrying an image of the 3 – Celestial Guardian should take care of this.

3 Celestial

Admittedly, its difficult to find a ‘3-Celestial Guardian’ Pendant. A key chain will do. However, that’s also the reason why I designed my WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT with the 3-Celestial Guardian at the back.

One good news is that you have the support of the Tai Sui God of the year. But it is important that you constantly appease the Tai Sui (Tai Suey / Grand Duke Jupiter), thus is important that you always carry or wear an image of the Pi Yao (Piyao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pixie, Pi Xie).

piyao pendant

Piyao Pendant

Health forecast is above average, but the 60 and 84 – year – old Rooster should take some precaution. Thus wearing the Illness Suppression Amulet or the image of Medicine Buddha or a Wu Lou (Wulou, Holy Gourd) should help.

Wealth and financial forecast for all the Rooster is good. Though the 36 and 60 – year – old Rooster should take some precaution in their business dealing. Having the Vajrapani Ruel should help protect you.

Vajrapani Ruel

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

Another good news in that you have the side blessing of the Golden Deity star and this should provide you with help from the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Taoist Gods or Deities. Activate this by inviting an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Taoist God or Deity and wear them as a pendant or put the image inside your house. I strongly suggest the following images of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva (Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon) if you can have the Thousand Hand Kuan Yin Bodhisattva the better, Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva), Kuan Kong (Guan Gong, Kuan Yu, Guan Yu, Sangharama Bodhisattva, Qie Lan Pu Sa), Maitreya Buddha (Happy Fat Buddha), Goddess Tara, Yellow Dzambhala (Yellow Jambala), White Dzambhala (White Jambala), or The Monkey God – Sun Wu Kong.

DOG

DOG

Loyal, just, strong sense of morality, reliable, dutiful, patient, caring, sincere, compassionate, honest, generous, intelligent, confident, idealistic, affectionate, a worthy leader, tend to become lazy and depressed, pessimistic.

While it cannot be said that it is bad year for the Dog, neither it can be said that it is good. A lot of the luck that comes your way should highly depend on you. But one thing for sure is that you are extremely blessed with the presence of the Golden Deity Star. This should provide you with help from the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Taoist Gods or Deities that may prove to be the best thing to happen. Activate this by inviting an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Taoist God or Deity and wear them as a pendant or put the image inside your house. I strongly suggest the following images of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva (Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon) if you can have the Thousand Hand Kuan Yin Bodhisattva the better, Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva), Kuan Kong (Guan Gong, Kuan Yu, Guan Yu, Sangharama Bodhisattva, Qie Lan Pu Sa), Maitreya Buddha (Happy Fat Buddha), Goddess Tara, Yellow Dzambhala (Yellow Jambala), White Dzambhala (White Jambala), or The Monkey God – Sun Wu Kong.

 

I know I mentioned a lot, but for this year, it is best to invite the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) as a gold pendant because He will provide the power from the earth element and the resources from the metal element of the gold.

This is also a year where relationships will become better and might take a better part of your life over your career and financial success.

There is also a big possibility of change. A big change that may come your way that is indicated in your elemental forecast! In fact, the Bazi Chart of the year and the Bazi Chart of the Dog shows harmony, making the elemental forecast your strongest armor this year. Your Life Chi, Spirit Chi, Inner Chi and Lung – Ta are all either above average or strong. So this should help propel you to success and achieving the things that you desire for. Carrying the Vajrapani Ruel with you should help to further enhance these energies.

One bad news is that you are directly afflicted by the #2 Flying Star, which is also known as Illness Star but remember this is a star that doesn’t only causes illness but also accidents. This may affect you both physically and mentally and thus it is important for you to have the Illness Suppression Amulet and it is also equally for you to chant the mantra of Medicine Buddha (TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA) 108x a day, everyday.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

Another negative star that comes to you this year is the Yin Chia Xing and this might make the Illness Star stronger. To protect yourself from the negative effects of this star it is important you have the Traditional Sutra Amulet inside your bedroom. If you are married, you cannot have the Traditional Sutra Amulet in your bedroom, so better to put it in the room where you stays the most, next to your bedroom, and put it there in high clean place.

sutra-amulets

These are just one copy each of the very limited copies sent to me by my Guru Lama of the THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA, THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA. Sutras are also used as very powerful amulets, that is why you will often old Buddhist Chinese houses has a copy of the Sutra on their altar though they might not be reciting the sutra itself.

While the 23, 47, and 83 – years – old Dogs needs to take the most precaution, I would like to stress that all Dogs are affected by the Illness Star (a star that causes accidents and illness) so again it is best for you to have the Illness Suppression Amulet and the Traditional Sutra Amulet (TSA) because the (I repeat) Yin Chia Xing strengthens the effects of this star and the cure for this is TSA.

While superlative Wealth luck forecast is not the name of the game. Wealth luck is average or above average for most Dogs. This is especially true for the 35 and 59 – year – old Dogs. For the other age groups who want to enhance their wealth luck wearing the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva as a gold pendant and wearing citrine should really help.

PIG

PIG

General Traits: Just, discerning, wise, intellectual and well-informed, lucky with money and in friendship, always admired, self-indulgent, cultured, loyal, reliable, naïve, tend to get frustrated due to lack of knowledge

This is quite a good year for people born under the sign of the Pig if we are to base it on its relation to the year’s Paht Chee Chart. There will be challenges ahead of you but you will be able to overcome them.

This is a year wherein you have the potential to shine and improve your current situation. The best news is that both your Spirit Chi and Life Chi are quite strong. Thus giving you an advantage already. However, your Lung – Ta or Windhorse is quite weak, thus it might create some hindrance, however, simply having the Vajrapani Ruel should address this concern or wearing the Windhorse pendant should also address this.

 

One of your major concern is that you have the #2 Flying Star also called as the Illness Star (a star that cause both illness and accidents), which is further enhanced by the presence of the Yin Chia Xing. You should addressed both these stars because this is your major stumbling block for the year, and thus it is very important for you to chant the mantra of the Medicine Buddha (TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA) every day for 108x a day, and carry the Illness Suppression Amulet with you. Furthermore, to manage the Yin Chia Xing, it is important for you to have the Traditional Sutra Amulet in your bedroom. If you are married put the Traditional Sutra Amulet in your living room or the second most frequently used room.

Furthermore, you are also in side conflict with the Annual Conflict Star / Yearly Conflict Star a negative energy star that has the power to create a lot of problems and hindrance to your good luck. To protect yourself from this star please carry with you the Vajrapani Ruel or wear a gold Kalachakra pendant. You should also place a Traditional Sutra Amulet on the Northwest Sector of your house.

kalachakra gold pendant2

This is a Kalachakra pendant released by Lillian Too. I really love this pendant but find it too expensive. 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 for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

However, the extreme good news is that you have the Golden Deity Star, which is one of the best stars one can have in the Twenty-Four Mountain Star Formula. This should provide you with help from the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Taoist Gods or Deities that may prove to be the best thing to happen. Activate this by inviting an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Taoist God or Deity and wear them as a pendant or put the image inside your house. I strongly suggest the following images of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva (Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon) if you can have the Thousand Hand Kuan Yin Bodhisattva the better, Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva), Kuan Kong (Guan Gong, Kuan Yu, Guan Yu, Sangharama Bodhisattva, Qie Lan Pu Sa), Maitreya Buddha (Happy Fat Buddha), Goddess Tara, Yellow Dzambhala (Yellow Jambala), White Dzambhala (White Jambala), or The Monkey God – Sun Wu Kong.

 

I know I mentioned a lot, but for this year, it is best to invite the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) as a gold pendant because He will provide the power from the earth element and the resources from the metal element of the gold.

Look for gold Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva / Earth Store Bodhisattva similar to this one. Please note that this seems to be Bronze. However, what we need is gold.

Again all Pig – born people is prone to illness or accidents that may lead to long – term illness. All of you should have the Illness Suppression Amulet, but special mention must go to the 22, 46, and 52 – years – old Pig because they are the most severely affected by the effects of the said illness star.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

Wealth forecast is generally good for all Pigs.


 

Remember that the forecast for each animal sign is done in a general manner. Sometime the time of birth and day of birth makes a lot of difference in terms of luck. Nevertheless, you have to realize that one has to really get protected if you have some of the negative stars, especially the #5 Flying Star (Wu Wang, 5 – Yellow Star) and the #7 Flying Star (Violent Star). In Feng Shui, protection and cure is given more importance than enhancement of the good star. So if you find yourself in a tight budget because effective cures and real cures are naturally quite pricey, remember the key is to protect first.

At this point, I also would like to add that it is also quite important for you to read the other posts on this series, because there are times that you have a good star but then your room or office or direction of your head when you sleep is in the bad sector, then it might severely affect your luck. For example, you might have #1 Flying Star (White Victory Star) but then you stay in the South, then the Wu Wang of the South might severely affect the good effect of the #1 Flying Star. Or for example you are Sheep that is affected by the #7 Flying Star (Violent Star) and side afflicted by the Wu Wang, but then you happen to stay in the Northwest who happens to have the Golden Deity star, then you can activate your Golden Deity star to help give you added protection from your bad star. You get what I’m trying to say? The worst case scenario is you are Sheep that is already affected by the #7 Flying Star and side afflicted by the Wu Wang, then you happen to stay in the South then you become even more afflicted by the Wu Wang. So you must cross reference the stars of your Chinese Animal Zodiac Sign (Chinese Horoscope) with the stars of the compass directions and also take note of the effects of the Bazi Chart of the year.

Lastly, aside from the Horse and Sheep who really needs to have the Five Element Pagoda and Gold Kalachakra, if you really cannot have all the recommended cures and enhancers, then at least have the following: GOLD EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA PENDANT (stress is given on the gold, not copper, not silver, not brass, not stainless or jade) because aside from the effects of the image in giving us more power thru the earth element and resources thru its metal element the end of the year is also ruled by Hostile Energies and it is the image of the Earth Store Bodhisattva in gold that will help protect us from these hostile energy, VAJRAPANI RUEL, and to a certain degree Citrine.

I also would like to add that at the end of the day, especially those whose forecast is quite negative or grim. I would like to share with you a short story about my reader who became a friend – BM. BM is an Ox who as we know is affected by the extra strong Wu Wang of 2016. On top of that, her bedroom is in the Northeast. We still have one month to go, but BM seems to have surpassed 2016 still strong. Sure she had some bumpy times this 2016. But nothing that is so bad that would make her really cry. Why? She has all the cures that she needs but more importantly, in fact more important than the cures is that BM has planted the seeds of good deeds, of love, of compassion, of kindness a long time ago. And she continues to plant those seeds of goodness with expecting in return. And ironically because she wasn’t expecting anything, and she just kept on planting those seeds of goodness without any other intentions but simply to do good, she is reaping the fruits of those seeds now, and those seeds is what made her survive 2016. But more importantly, she knows the power of prayers, constant prayer and not when needed only. Her prayers protected her also. Even if her prayers are mostly for other people.

Why Do Feng Shui Consultants Push For Some Cures or Charms? : Would A Doctor Prescribed a Medicine that Won’t Work?

Published Nobyembre 26, 2016 by jptan2012

The other day I received this email. For the privacy of the sender, I will not share the person’s name and neither will I put an initial.

The sender of the said email who is a Christian, as he/she claims in the email, but seems to follow several Feng Shui consultants and writers wants to know why do Feng Shui consultants, or in my case as a Feng Shui write sort of promotes some items. This person said that he thinks that Lillian Too promotes her medallions, annual cures too much, and that another Feng Shui consultant promotes some type of cloth and faux jewelries, while I ‘promote’ the Vajrapani Ruel a lot.

Doing Feng Shui is very much like acting as doctors of the Earth Luck aspect of a person. Remember, there is Heaven’s Luck, which is basically your karma (where you’re born, condition of your birth, etc.) and also help from Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Taoist Gods, or Jesus Christ and the Saints. Then there is Man’s Luck, which has something to do with what you do and how you work. Then there is also Earth’s Luck or Feng Shui. Practicing Feng Shui is very much acting like a doctor, you cure / treat the bad things or prevent the bad things from happening first before you start boosting the good things.

When you go to a doctor, that’s what they’ll do. Treat or cure your illness first before they focus on preventing other diseases to come up. But by curing or preventing, a doctor will naturally prescribe a treatment or medicine that they believe will work. They will not prescribe a medicine or treatment that doesn’t work. Otherwise, what’s the point of the treatment or medicine? Furthermore, different doctors might prescribe different treatment or medicines basically depending on what is within reach. A doctor in a remote town might believe in angioplasty but will not recommend it only because it is not available.

I understand that sometimes there are commercialized Feng Shui consultants, who are into this as business might push for an items that they sell. I will not deny that that happens. But generally speaking most will only prescribed something that they believe will work.

So Feng Shui consultants, or a Feng Shui writer like me will naturally recommend something that we believe in. In my case, I often times recommend readers items that are available online or available from other Feng Shui sites. But I only recommend something that I have experienced and believe will truly work. I also believe in a permanent thing rather than something you change annually, thus my recommendations might seem repetitive. Because they work and it’s perpetual!

Chant – A – Mantra (7) & Recite – A – Sutra (8): Additional Protection from the Double Illness Star and Double Wu Wang in the Northeast!

Published Nobyembre 4, 2016 by jptan2012

Any Feng Shui enthusiasts and Feng Shui students would have known by now that the month of November (starting on November 7, 2016 – December 6, 2016) a lot of us will have to be very careful and be ready for double negative energies brought about by the combination of the Annual Flying Stars and Monthly Flying Stars.

Note: To understand this post better you can read the first two posts about it. 1. Double Wu Wang Whammy for People Born in the Year of the Ox and Tiger this November. / 2. Is the Double Wu Wang in the Northeast this November Fatal?

First, the most dreadful star (#5 Flying Star / Wu Wang / Five Yellow Star / 5 – Yellow Star) is doubled in the Northeast this month, which means people born under the year of the Ox and Tiger, Middle Sons (regardless of age, regardless whether they are married or single and whether they still live with their parents or not), and people staying in the Northeast (bedroom, office or even if your house is in the Northeast of the village or subdivision) and people whose house or office door faces the Northeast are all affected by the Double Wu Wang. This is the most dreadful star in the Flying Star formula, and all Feng Shui experts or Feng Shui consultants caution us about this, and having it doubles this year in the Northeast brings tremendous stress to those who have to deal with it. Those who have to deal with it are the people I mentioned above.

But at the same time, the #2 Flying Star, which is known as the Illness Star, a star that causes not only grave illness but also serious accidents that may lead to long term illness or death is also doubled this month. We are all susceptible to this, but people who are affected by the Wu Wang, as mentioned above, are doubly affected. As a precaution, it is highly advisable for you to wear the Illness Suppression Amulet if you have it.

For those who are affected by the Double Wu Wang in the Northeast can wear the Vajrapani Ruel and a gold 5 – Element Pagoda (Five Element Pagoda) pendant, and a gold Kalachakra pendant. Carrying or surrounding yourself with Traditional Sutra Amulets like THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA or THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA or THE DIAMOND SUTRA will also greatly help and offer much protection.

In my earlier post about the same topic, I also said that this is the time for one to rely and have faith on prayers. For Catholics you can do your novenas or pray your rosary. For Christians and Muslims you can pray to your God and have faith in Him. For Taoist, you can ask special protection Fu from your Taoist priest. For Buddhist and those who would be willing to practice how Buddhist protect themselves now can do the following suggestions found below.

Go to the temple and light incense everyday.

Go to the temple and bow to the images of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas everyday.

Donate to the poor or who are in need with utmost sincerity.

Chant the following mantras (minimum) 108x a day everyday:

  • Mantra of Amitabha Buddha: OM AMI DEWA HRIH
  • Mantra of Medicine Buddha: TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA
  • Mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion Guan Yin: OM MANI PADME HUM
  • Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani: OM VAJRAPANI HUM
  • Mantra of Bodhisattva Cundi Avalokitesvara (Chundi Avalokitesvara): NAMO SAPTANAM SAMYAKSAM BUDDHA KOTINAM TADYATHA OM CALE CULE CUNDI SOHA
  • Mantra of the Protective Deity Kalachakra: OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT

You can also Recite the following Sutras as often as you can:

Is There A Feng Shui Relevance to All Souls Day?

Published Oktubre 31, 2016 by jptan2012

Ire, Loves Well, obviously the Chinese ‘All Souls Day’ or day of remembering the dead doesn’t happen in November 1, or to be more accurate about it on November 2. All Saints Day / All Souls Day is a big deal for a lot of Filipinos and perhaps Catholics in the world. But is there is Feng Shui significance or relevance to this special day?

For Chinese, especially those who are in the older generation, it is very important that we remember our ancestors or loved ones who passed away, this is taken as a sign of respect but at the same time, it is believed that we should not earn their ire by forgetting about them, or we should earn their approval so that they can help shower blessing upon the living. This is why remembering our loved ones or dead ancestors are important part of the life of a Chinese. In fact, a lot of us have images of our ancestors in our home, where we light incense and offer food on special occasions. The older generation will offer incense everyday. This may be a little too excessive.

In Buddhism, according to the Medicine Buddha Sutra, when a person dies his or her consciousness will undergo rebirth within 7 days or 21 days or 35 days or 49 days. I will clarify that it will go through rebirth on the first day, it will have to wait for 7 days, then if you didn’t go through rebirth on the 7th day then on the 21st day if not then it will be 35th day, until 49th day. If you don’t go through rebirth in the first 5 stipulated days, then you will sure go rebirth on the 49th day.

But rebirth doesn’t necessarily mean rebirth here on earth as human.

There are different levels of possible rebirth and starting from the bottom they are the following:

  1. Hell
  2. Hungry Ghost
  3. Animal Kingdom
  4. Human
  5. Asura
  6. Heavenly Beings
  7. Arhat
  8. Pratyekabuddha
  9. Bodhisattva
  10. Buddhahood

The first six are considered as the lower realms wherein the being still has an attachment and the last four are considered as the upper realm wherein the being or our consciousness no longer has any attachment. Once one is born in the upper realm, his or her consciousness no longer goes back to any of the lower realm.

It should be noted that for Catholics or Christianity, heaven is the ultimate goal, for Buddhism is a better place than the first five but it is still a place where in desire and attachment exist and one can still go down to the other realms. It is also not the most desired realm. I will talk about the 10 realms further in a future post.

I will also discuss the difference between Hungry Ghost and the Hell in another post.

But for now what I want to show is that for Buddhism, one can be born in different realms, until we reach Buddhahood.

So when a person dies, his consciousness or soul as Christians would call it will be born again in one of these realms. As humans 98% we will be born in either the realm of Hell or Hungry Ghost or Animal Kingdom or Human (again). If we have been good we might be born in the realm of an Asura or a Heavenly Beings.

This is where remembering and offering ‘good merits’ to our departed love ones or ancestors will become important. For example, your loved one or ancestor was born in the realm of the Hell or Animal Kingdom or Hungry Ghost, by offering good merits to them such as praying for them or chanting mantras or reciting sutras for them will shortened their suffering in the lower realms of Hell or Hungry Ghost or Animal Kingdom. On the other hand, if they were born in the realm of Human, by offering good merits to them their life will be better. If their current life is bad it will become better, if it is already good it will become even better. And if they were born as an Asura or Heavenly Beings then their life will even become better or they maybe pushed up to being born as Arhat or a Pratyekabuddha.

But this is the thing. Days like ‘All Souls Day’ are important because it forced us to remember them on these days. However, it certainly doesn’t mean that we should only remember them on this day. In fact, it is very important that we offer prayers or mantras or sutras or incense to them everyday. And by remembering them and offering merits to them everyday, we in turn make our life better. Because we are interconnected with each other. They may have a totally different life now but because of affinity with each other we are somewhat linked to each other. And if we send them merits, in a way we also get our own merits.
