All sutras are powerful, but admittedly I am quite partial towards the sutra that I’m sharing with you today. I’m talking about the Noble Stack of Auspiciousness Sutra.
Not only because it is a powerful sutra, but more than that the Noble Stack of Auspiciousness Sutra is a sutra that proves Feng Shui really exist in Buddhism. The truth is there are some lineage of Buddhism who downplays Feng Shui, in particular, Zen Buddhism, they will tell you that Feng Shui is ‘useless’. I’m putting it in quotation marks because what they will usually say that Feng Shui is impermanent, thus they believe that one should not practice it. Yes Feng Shui is impermanent, anything that changes is impermanent and I totally understand where that belief is coming from, but I believe that Feng Shui should not be practiced just because it is impermanent. In fact, it is part of the Tibetan Buddhism and Pure Land Buddhism. I will discuss about this topic more in my succeeding post. However, what I want to say here is that the Noble Stack of Auspiciousness Sutra is one sutra that shows Feng Shui is quite important.
In the sutra, as you read you will see it in details, Shakyamuni Buddha when he still has His human body talked about inauspiciousness brought about by bad directions, bad funeral site, etc. This obviously indicates Feng Shui.
Anyway, I will discuss about that in detail in my succeeding posts. For now, I would like to share that reciting this sutra will surely bring about a lot of auspiciousness to the person reciting it. Furthermore, it is also quite important to recite this sutra when you moved in to a new house or office or when you are experiencing a spade of bad luck. On top of that, if you think a place has bad Feng Shui constantly reciting this sutra in that place will help temper the negative effects of the bad Feng Shui.
I also would like to draw your attention to the fact that in this sutra, only three Bodhisattvas were considered more than auspicious, and they are Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara (also called or spelled as Kuan Yin, Kwan Yin, Gwan Yin, Guan Yin) who is described as auspicious and compassionate, Bodhisattva Majushri who is described as auspicious and wise, and Bodhisattva Vajrapani who is described as auspicious and powerful. This is further indication that Vajrapani Bodhisattva, whose extension power is found with the world’s most powerful amulet – Vajrapani Ruel – is indeed a very powerful Bodhisattva. But I’m getting off track here but I thought this is an information that I should share with my regular readers, especially those who have the Vajrapani Ruel.

But remember, as always when reciting a sutra one has to chant 3x NAMO FUNDAMENTAL TEACHER SHAKYAMUNI BUDDHA
Followed by the Sutra Opening Gatha:
The Dharma Infinitely Profound and Subtle
Is Rarely Encountered Even In A Million of Kalpas
We Are Now Able to Hear, Recite, and Follow It

Then recite the sutra!
