Basic Buddhism (1): An Introduction and What to do When You Meet A Buddhist Monk or Nun

Published Enero 26, 2015 by jptan2012

My email has been barraged with questions and requests for the Vajrapani Ruel, unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll be able to read all emails and between emails about the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, the FOUR DHARMKAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AMULET, the NAMTSO SALT, and now the VAJRAPANI RUEL, I think there would be more unanswered emails and I’m really sorry for this.

The internet has made it possible for people to know more about Buddhism and Buddhist amulets, however, I’m afraid that the internet has also, in a way, distorted the real concept of Buddhism. Buddhism is not simply about lighting incense, or wearing images of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Deities, or chanting mantras. Buddhist is all that but it is definitely much more than that, what I’ve written here on this blog, despite of the fact that some people saying it is substantial, is in reality just a fraction of what Buddhism really is.

The popularity of the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT with it’s numerous personal testimonies, the demand for the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AMULET, the rising popularity and demand both for the NAMTSO SALT and the VAJRAPANI RUEL, which is considered as the most powerful amulet the Buddhist pantheon, may have diverted some people from understanding real Buddhism.

Yes, the NAMTSO SALT, the VAJRAPANI RUEL, and the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AMULET are some of the most powerful amulets in the world. In fact, according to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, all stupas should contain the Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras! (Speaking of Stupas and Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras, in the next few days you shall read my post about it and regarding the special gift I got from a reader, AC. These are all written already but will be posted automatically via the scheduled post.) But these things are not available to everybody, and having a bigger picture of what Buddhism is all about is way better than simply having one of these items. The WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, which is no longer available for new requests until we have delivered all requests for it, also garnered some popularity the past two years with my inbox loaded with a lot of personal testimonies about it. Again, these are just tools, Buddhism is all so much more about that.

Thus, I have decided to come up with a new category and series called BASIC BUDDHISM. The objective of which is really to talk about Buddhism outside the amulets, the wearing of pendants. The topics are going to be pretty basic because I don’t think I can talk about Buddhism deeply, but the topics should be able to give you some basic guideline on Buddhist protocol and on basic Buddhism. Nevertheless, you should understand, that there are many lineage of Buddhism. In Tibetan Buddhism alone, there are four lineages, and there is Mahayana Buddhism and there is Zen Buddhism, and Pure Land Buddhism, their basic teachings are basically the same but there may be some variations. What I will discuss here is the Buddhism that I practice, which is a mixture of Tibetan, Mahayana and Zen Buddhism. I will try my best to be very specific as to what kind of Buddhism I’m talking about if it’s possible.Buddhist monks2

After the long introduction, today let me start with something quite simple, let me talk about a basic Buddhist protocol and I chose this topic because a lot of people have been asking me about this.

What to do when you meet a Buddhist monk or nun?

Let me start for non – Buddhist. Please do not stare at them, and if you have some belief and respect for Buddhism bowing your head is already a sign of respect.

For Buddhist, it is customary to greet Buddhist monks and nuns with OM MANI PADME HUM, or AMITOFU, or NAMASTE. Do this and do a half – bow, which is actually bowing, from your waist. Make sure that you put your palms together.

Make sure you don’t touch them, especially if you’re of different gender, this is considered disrespectful. In some countries, like Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, the Buddhist monks there are not even allowed to receive things from women.

It is customary to let them pass first and bow once they have pass.

For some lineage, especially Tibetan Buddhism, it is important that you don’t stand taller than the lama; so bending your knee a little is widely appreciated.

The World’s Most Powerful Amulet in the Buddhist Pantheon Called Vajrapani Ruel

Published Enero 8, 2015 by jptan2012

As a Feng Shui blogger and to some extent a very reluctant Feng Shui consultant ( I still cringed with the term consultant being associated with me ), I find it easy to write the articles I post on this blog. The reason being is because I only write about things that I have studied, experienced, or would have heard a first hand confirmed testimonial.

This post is quite different, I have known about this topic for quite some time, I even aspire to have one, but the truth is my knowledge this thing is quite limited, I haven’t experienced it’s effects, and because the last time this thing was created was 40 to 50 years ago, then there would be very little confirmed first hand testimonial about this. I’m talking about the Vajrapani Ruel.

Briefly speaking, a ruel, for the lack of appropriate terms, a ruel is a kind of Buddhist amulet. It is believed to be the most powerful form and the most effective amulet in the realm of Buddhism.

But before we go into Vajrapani, I believe it is worth talking about Vajrapani first.

Who is Vajrapani? The straight answer is that Vajrapani is a Bodhisattva, a Bodhisattva that is in the level of Avalokitesvara (aka Kuan Yin) and Ksitigarbha. However, simply saying that Vajrapani is a Bodhisattva in the level of Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin and Ksitigarbha, simply won’t do him justice.

Vajrapani is one of the lesser known but equally powerful and compassionate Bodhisattva!

Vajrapani is one of the lesser known but equally powerful and compassionate Bodhisattva!

For those who understands Buddhism as a loving and calm type of religious order will be surprise that arise a Bodhisattva like Vajrapani who is famous for his wrathful form. To be completely honest, there are a lot of wrathful deity or images in Buddhism, but the wrathful form does not represent the fact that they are angry but more of what they represents, a lot of these wrathful forms represents protection and wealth.

Vajrapani is one of the Bodhisattvas that are highly revered in all Buddhist tradition. But he holds special position in the Lotus family. The Lotus family is headed by Amitabha Buddha and is surrounded by Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin, Manjushri and Vajrapani. Vajrapani is also a member of the Vajra (thunderbolt) family, which includes Yamantaka and Akshobya, which is the lord of the Vajra family.

Vajrapani is also one of the earliest Bodhisattva that appeared in Mahayana Buddhism. As mentioned he is being part of the Lotus family, he automatically became a member of the three protective Bodhisattvas that surrounds the Buddha. Kuan Yin or Avalokitesvara manifests the Buddha’s compassion, Manjushri manifests the Buddha’s wisdom, and Vajrapani manifest the Buddha’s power. Furthermore, Vajrapani also manifest the power of the 5 Tathagatas.

Amitabha Buddha has also given Vajrapani of becoming the protector and guide of the Historical Buddha, or Shakyamuni Buddha when he was still a human Bodhisattva.

As if that is not impressive enough, Vajrapani is the only the Buddhist Bodhisattva or to be more accurate deity (as he was then still a deity) to be mentioned in the Pali Canon. He is also the only Bodhisattva worshipped in Pure Land Buddhism, Tibetan Buddhism, and in Shaolin Monasteries.

Vajrapani is also one of the first Dharmapalas mentioned in all Pali Canon texts. Dharmapalas are ‘fearsome’ beings in wrathful form, sometimes with several heads, and hands, and feet. They usually have red, black or blue (such as in the case of Vajrapani) skin. They will always have very fierce expressions and sometimes they come with fangs. But what one needs to understand is that Dharmapalas are depicted in such form to communicate their strength and their power over all evil. But Dharmapalas, despite of their terrifying look, are actually Bodhisattvas or Buddhas that still embodies high compassion, they only act wrathful for the benefit of sentient beings.

Vajrapani has a wrathful look to symbolize a yaksa to help generate ‘fear’ in sentient beings to loosen up his dogmatism and also to communicate to lower beings that he is protector Bodhisattva. He’s in a warrior pose to signify his immediate action. His loincloth is made of a skin of a tiger, the head of the tiger can still be seen somewhere on his left knee. Vajrapani’s right hand brandishes a Vajra (thunderbolt) to signify wisdom in fighting off his opponents, and at the same time to signify the capability to cleans the surrounding of negative chi or energy. It also signifies one of the greatest natural weapons in the universe. His left hand holds a magical lasso, which he uses to bind demons or evil intent. Around his neck is a serpent necklace, to signify his power to heal and to bring good luck. He also has a third eye, which depicts his ability to see through what is not obvious. He is also always depicted with a whole body flame halo, because this represents awakening and suppression of hostile energies.

vajrapaniIt is important to understand that unlike in Taoism were there image represents their ‘physical form’, images of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas that we see are just representation of the things that they want to communicate. Needless to say, enlightenment can’t be represented in any form. So the Zen images of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas, just like the fierce images of the wrathful Buddhas or Bodhisattvas are all ‘misrepresentation’.

Surely, we cannot imagine all the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas sitting around all day on lotuses meditating. The truth is our mind won’t be able to grasps even a fraction of the concept on how they work, that’s why they have to be translated through images, that in turn gathers some of their energy by virtue of it representing them.

In the Pali Canon texts, Vajrapani was described as a Yaksa (sometimes spelled as Yaksha). A Yaksa is a kind of warrior and guardian spirit, like a General. He became a Bodhisattva because of an incident that happened to Shakyamuni when he was still a living Bodhisattva.

When he was still a living Bodhisattva, Shakyamuni went into meditation, where he encountered a Brahmin entity name Ambattha. Ambattha was really rude to Shakyamuni because he believes that Shakyamuni was of a lower social caste. He literally taunted Shakyamuni. Shakyamuni then also questioned Ambattha about his ancestry, which is supposed to have been totally ‘humble’.

Ambattha refuses to answer Sakyamuni’s questions and the situation is about to escalate. Ambattha was then already in the spirit world, while Shakyamuni was still a living Bodhisattva, Vajrapani who is a protector and guide of the human Shakyamuni appeared and manifested himself. Ambattha then saw Vajrapani on top of Sakyamuni’s head about to strike him. Note this as a realization of an ancient prophecy. Ambattha was really scared and promptly answered Sakyamuni’s question. Ambattha eventually became a Yaksa or a Deity and Vajrapani became a Bodhisattva.

It is important to note that Vajrapani and other similar wrathful figures in the Buddhism pantheon are not representative or manifestation of ordinary anger, there is no such thing as ‘righteous anger’ in Buddhism. The wrathful image represents their power, their fearlessness, and their total awakened mind. Remember that Vajrapani is and will always be a very compassionate Bodhisattva.

In my post above, I gave an introduction of Bodhisattva Vajrapani. That particular is a short and incomplete account of who Vajrapani is, but for now, it should be able to show us his importance and the depth of his power and significance. He alone has the wonderful opportunity of being the assigned protector and guardian of Shakyamuni as a living Bodhisattva.

I would now like to discuss about the Vajrapani Ruel, as mentioned in the previous post, for the lack of an appropriate term, a ruel is a form of amulet, but it is said to be the highest form of amulet.

I have heard about the Vajrapani Ruel several years back and were in search of it. However, since it is so rare, I wasn’t really surprised that I didn’t found any. In fact, the last time a Vajrapani Ruel was made was some 40 to 50 years ago!

I was so happy when my Guru Lama contacted me to inform me that a Vajrapani Ruel is available, 40 to 50 years since it was last made. There are three kinds of known and accepted ruel, and depending on what Buddhist tradition you follow, it is said that the Vajrapani Ruel is the most powerful one.

Why does it take so long to make the Vajrapani Ruel?

The Vajrapani Ruel can only be made by a select group of highly enlightened lamas. These are lamas who can access those Wrathful images through a certain form of non – physical tantric meditation. But other than the fact that only a very few select group of high lamas can only make this particular ruel, there are certain conditions and ingredients that can only be access once every few years.

It would be impossible for me to list down all the ingredients, because according to my Guru Lama, the ingredients of the Vajrapani Ruel consist of 70 to 90 different ingredients.

Some of these are Namtso Salt that I recently wrote about, a certain soil that can be found only inside a certain place in Tibet. But more than various precious herbs, rare plants, crystals, one very important ingredient of the Vajrapani Ruel is a precious relic from a high lama.

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.

Those who are not Buddhist and are not familiar with the importance of relics might find this a little iffy. Relics are basically small pearl like objects found in the ashes of the dead lamas after they’re cremated. Weirdly, it is only high lamas and really good people produces these pearl like objects, and are most often than not are green in color. These relics are crushed into powder, mixed with the other ingredients and baked.

In the world only very few selected people can really own a relic. The karmic merit must be so high before one will have the chance to own a relic, so having the Vajrapani ruel, is an extremely fortunate and meritous thing to have.

Having the Vajrapani Ruel has various benefits, one of which has been mentioned several times. Vajrapani Ruel is one of the most powerful protective amulets. Again, depending on what Buddhist tradition you ask, some of them even consider the Vajrapani Ruel more powerful than the Kalachakra with its protective energies.

The difference of the Kalachakra and the Vajrapani Ruel is basically the Kalachakra is a very powerful protective symbol because it’s actually a compressed symbolic script. The Vajrapani ruel is in the strictest sense of the word an amulet.

But more than it’s protective properties, the Vajrapani Ruel has the ability to cleanse immediate negative energy and chi. It also gives you a upper hand in all your undertakings.

More than that, it also has the ability of bestowing tremendous wealth luck.

It also has the ability to bestow wisdom especially to people who people who are in the field that research and intellectual stimulation takes the front seat.

Because the last Vajrapani Ruel was made 40 to 50 years ago, it’s quite difficult to get first hand testimonials, but my Guru Lama shared some with me and will be sharing them in a few days.

According to my Guru Lama, a Vajrapani ruel can only be made inside Tibet, and he now has the latest batch of Vajrapani Ruel made available which was recently made. This particular batch of Vajrapani Ruel was smuggled out of Tibet together with the Namtso Salt.

2015 Year of the Wood Sheep Forecast for the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac Sign!

Time really flies so fast, it seems that I have just recently written about the 2014 Year of the Wood Horse forecast and in what seems a short time, I am now again writing about the 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep forecast.

In my previous posts, 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi, Flying Stars, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: A Balanced Year Filled with Wealth and Resources But May Be Ruled By Arguments and Fighting (Part 1) (Part 2), I talked about the year being ruled by the #3 Flying Star, which is also called the Argumentative Star. But really this star can cause more than just arguments, so it is important for you to remember that regardless of your Chinese Animal Zodiac Sign, you need to have the Holy Trinity of Protection for the year.


 

Note: To know more about the particular recommendation please click on the link. Some links may lead you to a different post that has different title but as you read along you’ll find that that particular recommendation is mentioned on that link. This only mean that I haven’t written about it separately. It might also lead you to a different site if I haven’t written about that particular recommendation at all. More importantly, I’m not selling any of the items below. Some are from my personal collection and some were just lifted from the net. You’ll also notice that some of the pictures are repetitive. This is for the benefit of the people who may opt to skip the signs that doesn’t matter to them.

This is also the third of the series of three posts. It will be nice if you can read all three posts to get a better picture of what’s in store for the year.

 

 


 

The Holy Trinity of Protection for the year are the following:

  1. Kuan Kong or Namo Sangharama Bodhisattva to suppress the #3 Flying Star.kuan kong pendant
  2. Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra to actively create harmony. As mentioned a Kuan Yin (1) (2) (3) pendant with the Heart Sutra can be very difficult to find, and although this is my top preference, separately carrying a Heart Sutra with you will definitely work as well.
    This is from my personal collection. The reason I love this pendants so much is because it has a inscription of the Heart Sutra at the back. I wear the smaller one everyday.

    My Kuan Yin pendant has the The Heart of Prajna Paramitra Sutra. Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to look for this kind of pendant.

  3. Lastly, a Kalachakra pendant, to continue protect you from the peripheral effects of the star, which may be cause by other people.

    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.

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. You can get a Kalachakra pendant as well.

 

It has to be mentioned that Chinese New Year or the Lunar New Year that will usher in the year of the Wood Sheep doesn’t happen until Feb. 19, 2015. That is the day when we can really say it’s the New Year.

 

Furthermore, for the animal zodiac sign forecast, one should also remember that these are general forecast and difference will still happen base on your actual birth date. By birth date I refer to the month, day, and time. However, this should still serve as basic guideline.

 

Now lets move to the different animal signs.

 

The RAT…

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.

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.

Is synonymous to lucky this year. Maybe the luckiest of all the 12 animal signs, you will not lack of resources, opportunities, success, and if you play your cards right, even wealth. Your luck is brought about by the wonderful #8 Star also known as the Wealth Star! Furthermore, you are flanked by two Big Auspicious Star from the 24 Mountain Stars calculation! The name says it all and there’s no need to explain this. All you have to do is to focus on what is there to take, focus on the positive and your biggest enemy for the year is yourself if you are filled with self – doubt.

The only slightly hindrance to attaining your full luck potential is by the appearance of the Wu Duo Star. This normally bring about the loss of money, however, a large group of Feng Shui experts believes that when Wu Duo appears between two Big Auspicious stars then the effects are either lessened or totally negated. Nevertheless, it is still better to keep yourself aware of this possible loss so that you can be careful.

Recommendations:

To further enhanced your wealth luck and at the same time give you the confidence you can wear a Wind Horse or Lung – Ta coupled with one of the following images Kuan Kong, Sun Wukong, Maitreya Buddha (Happy Buddha), Yellow Dzambhala, or Three – Legged Toad. Preferably wear them in gold.

 The OX…

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

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

Aside from the #3 star that affects everybody, is surrounded by auspicious stars from the Flying Star formula, on the ‘house’ of an Ox lies the #6 flying star also known as the Heaven’s Blessing and Mentor Star, on the right is the #8 flying star that is also called wealth star and lastly on the left lies the #1 flying star known as the White Victory Star! All three combined creates the auspicious three – digit number 168. Furthermore, you also have the Big Auspicious star of the 24 Mountain Star formulas. The only conflict is that you’re Sui Po this year, which means you’re in direct conflict with the Tai Sui of the year, and on your left is the Annual Conflict star also from the 24 Mountain Star formulas.

What does this mean? This mean that you’re greatly blessed this year and wealth is definitely within your reach. Furthermore, you may always be victorious in all your endeavors and to top it off you won’t run out of help from powerful individuals who can make things easier for you. On top of that, if you remain good and harvest good karma, help will definitely come from heaven.

You just have to be careful about the Sui Po and the Annual Conflict star, because this can divert your attention from the real price. This translates into making you more susceptible to the effects of the #3 Star. So always remember that for you the best thing to do this year is simply to quietly walk away from arguments and quarrels. Don’t let it lead you to disaster and forget about better things.

The Ox is also greatly affected by the #3 Ruling Star.  So better watch out for your temper.

Recommendations:

To enhance the good stars wear the White Victory Star wear the Victory Banner. You can also wear the image of Kuan Kong and Sun Wukong to enhance both the #6 and #8 flying stars.

Wear an image of the Piyao (Pi Xiu, Pixiu, Pi Xie, Pixie, Pi Yao) or Dou Mu Yuan Jun to appease the Tai Sui God of the year. I together with a help of a reader might come up with a Master Tai Sui Protection pendant. It’s called the Master Tai Sui Protection pendant because it will bear the image of Dou Mu Yuan Jun (to know more about her please click here) and a pair of Piyao. Hopefully, at the back it will bear the Tai Sui protection prayer. But more than that it is a Tai Sui pendant that will cover all the Tai Sui God, so one need not replace the Tai Sui amulet every year. Hope this comes to fruition.

Gold Piyao pendants worn as amulets are also very auspicious.

Gold Piyao pendants worn as amulets are also very auspicious. This is a Piyao designed by Lillian too.

Dou Mu Yuan Jun or Goddess of the North Star is a powerful Deity to counter the effects of Tai Suey. She is said to be the creator of all the Tai Suey Gods does has the power to rule or control over them.

To protect oneself from the effects of the Annual Conflict, make sure you always have something red on your body. Just a little will do. So a little red gemstone worn, as jewelry will do.

Lastly, to protect oneself from the combined effects of the Sui Po and Annual Conflict stars, which create another negative chi, wear a gold Kalachakra or an image of Amitabha Buddha or Amitabha Buddha’s symbolic script.

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.

Please note that some Ox because of the effect of the Paht Chee is highly susceptible to have health issues this year. This is specifically true to Ox born in the years 1973 and 1985. So wear an image of the Medicine Buddha or Medicine Buddha’s symbolic script or a prayer wheel containing the mantra of Medicine Buddha.

Is another animal sign that enjoys tremendous luck, while you don’t have the Wealth Star, remember that base on the Bazi of the year wealth is quite accessible for all of us. But you do have the #6 Flying Star and the #1 Flying Star, this means with the help from mentors or influential people and from Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Deities, Gods, you can certain attain success in all your endeavors.

However, the 24 Mountain Stars formula of Feng Shui shows you are affected by the Annual Conflict and you are slightly facing the Three – Killings. The Annual Conflict star will make you more susceptible to the #3 Flying Star that is also known as the Argumentative Star. The Three – Killings might also present some problems. Normally, the way to manage the Three Killings is to confront it but this year because the 5 Yellow Star resides in the same sector, confronting the 3 Killings might do more harm than good. But the good news is that you also the Heavenly Seal, which means help from Heaven will surely come your way, this should temper all the bad effects a little.

Lastly, don’t forget that you are also slightly facing the Tai Suey, so better protect yourself from the ill effects of the wrath of the Tai Sui God.

Recommendations:

To enhance the good stars wear the White Victory Star wear the Victory Banner. You can also wear the image of Kuan Kong or Sun Wukong to enhance both the #6 and #8 flying stars. Alternately, a citrine with 9 – eye DZI will also help bring in wealth luck.

To deal with the 3 Killings, all you have to do is wear an image of the Three Celestial Guardian, namely the Piyao, Fu Dog and Chi Lin (Qi Lin), or you can also wear an image of 3 different Buddhas, or Bodhisattvas, or Deities, or Taoist Gods or Goddesses. For those who have the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, please note that the image of Medicine Buddha, Kuan Kong, and Yellow Dzambhala are more than enough to deal with the 3 Killings.

Three Celestial Guardinas consists of the Fu Dog, Pi Yao (Piyao), and Chi Lin (Chilin).

Had a tough year this 2014. A lot of people born under the sign of rabbit fell into some kind of health issues. Some were easily remedied with rest or popping a few pills, but a lot was a lot more serious. This year should be better, but a lot of you might still continue feeling a little under the blue. But other than your health issues, this should be a good year for people born under the sign of the rabbit. The #1 Flying Star called White Victory Star goes into your sector, this means that you will be victorious with your endeavors. Success will come easy to you.

On top of that in the 24 Mountain Star formula, you got the General Star or Star of the General. This means Rabbit born people who are in the leadership position will find themselves becoming real leaders, there will be more strength in your voice and you will be commanding with confidence.

You are also directly facing the 3 – Killings, and as we said this used to be an easy star to deal with, but this year because it resides at the West and is joined by the Five Yellow Star, it is best to avoid directly confronting the 3 – Killings.

Recommendations:

To help manage your health concerns, you can wear any of the following: Medicine Buddha pendant, Medicine Buddha prayer wheel, Wu Lou or Holy Gourd.

Is one of the luckiest signs the past years, but in the year 2015, which is lead by the Wood Sheep you’ll see yourself losing some steam. You’re usually brimming with self – confidence, however, due to the effects of the year’s bazi, you’ll find yourself losing some of these confidence. You might face a lot of challenges also. Whenever you faced self – doubt please just remember that you are right beside the #1 Flying Star, which is the White Victory Star. This should aid you in remembering that you can still be victorious as long as you regain that self – confidence and do away with all the negative thoughts.

More than the White Victory Star you should also know and always remember that you have the Big Auspicious Star from the 24 Mountain Star formulas. This means that this should be an auspicious year for you. Plus you also the Star of Golden Deity, thus you can expect help from the Gods.

However, the 24 Mountain Stars formula of Feng Shui shows you are affected by the Annual Conflict and you are slightly facing the Three – Killings. The Annual Conflict star will make you more susceptible to the #3 Flying Star that is also known as the Argumentative Star. The Three – Killings might also present some problems. Normally, the way to manage the Three Killings is to confront it but this year because the 5 Yellow Star resides in the same sector, confronting the 3 Killings might do more harm than good.

Also you’re afflicted with the Illness Star, which is the #2 Flying Star. While this year the said star is not as strong as last year, it is still wise to make sure that you take care of yourself, what your health and do not participate in any dangerous activities.

Recommendations:

Self – confidence is something difficult to deal with because it has something to do with your personality, so the best cure for this is really to remind yourself your worth. Nevertheless, to help keep an upbeat disposition in life, do wear a Star of David Crystal pendant; wear something that is made of citrine, amethyst, or clear quartz.

The Star of David pendant is a crystal pendant that is faceted in such a way that they call Star of David. It has a lot of uses, but one use of Star of David is to help strengthen your inner essence, and help renew energies.

Enhance the White Victory Star by wearing the Victory Banner and this should serve as a reminder to yourself that you do have the White Victory Star. Wearing a Kuan Kong will also help enhance this star.

Kuan Kong also spelled as Guan Gong is a warrior god. He is a very good protector and wealth god.

The best way to activate the Star of Golden Deity is by inviting to your house or wearing an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity or a Taoist God in gold. I suggest one of the following: Kuan Yin, Kuan Kong, Sun Wukong, Yellow Dzambhala. In fact, you can get a different image for your house and a different one for a pendant. But since you are also suffering from self – doubt and lack of self – confidence I strong recommend wearing a gold pendant of an image of Kuan Kong or Sun Wukong.

Should also have a good year. This is largely because of the effects of this year’s bazi to the fortune of the horse. You don’t have much wealth luck this year if fortune is going to be solely base on the Flying Star formula, but remember, wealth luck is accessible for all of us this year base on the year’s bazi. Your personal Windhorse is also your greatest asset this year.

You should be ready to take charge of the success that comes your way this year, don’t be timid, and while caution is always advice, be bullish and aggressive but at the same you should remain humble.

Furthermore, base on the 24 Mountain Stars formula, two Big Auspicious stars also visit you, this is great news, and on top of that, like the Dragon, you also have the Star of Golden Deity. All these should be enough to make your year a wonderful one.

But also take note that you were visited by the #2 Flying Star that is the Illness Star, but this year the star is not very strong but still it is best to take caution, because if you’re naturally weak or unhealthy this could have a grave effect on your health. Take note, you should also not tempt fate by engaging in dangerous activities or sports.

Recommendations:

To attract more wealth luck you should have one of the following: Kuan Kong, Sun Wukong, Three – Legged Toad.

Wearing a Three Legged Toad Pendant is considered very auspicious and it captures wealth for you.

The HORSE…

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

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 egoistical.

Is going to have a balanced year that in the sense that the luck that affects you is quite mixed. Because the sheep is an astrological ally, this would mean that the year would be generally in favor of you. Nevertheless, you have the flying star #7 known as the Violent Star or Star of Violence. There is a potential of robbery or some sort of violence happening in your life. So be extra careful and avoid going out at night and be carefree or careless.

While wealth luck is generally good for a lot of people, you should take extra care in being cautious in how you spend money. It is also possible that even if money is already within reach, sometimes you’ll see it getting lost.

The 24 Mountain Stars formula also indicates that you were sandwiched by two Big Auspicious Star, which means that this should be an auspicious year for you, but another adversary for the year is the Star of Reducing Energy that will manifest itself in making you feel tired and losing both physical and inner energy, this is further heightened by the fact that you are also in side conflict with the Illness Star. So better watch out for your health and always ensure that you stay in top shape because this will be your greatest stumbling block from attaining your full potential for the year. Remember, it is not only the body that may feel tire, but also your inner drive, your inner energy.

On top of that, you’re also in side conflict with the Tai Sui or Tai Suey, thus if not managed this might pose further problems with the Tai Sui God making things harder for you.

Recommendations:

To counter the effects of the #7 Flying Star you can invite into your home and wear the image of the following: Kuan Kong, Sun Wukong, Amitabha Buddha, or Kalachakra symbol. A Blue Rhinoceros with a Blue Elephant Feng Shui charm will also be helpful.

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.

To be able to tap into the year’s wealth luck and safeguard it you should wear a 9 – Eye DZI with Citrine or Three – Legged Toad or an image of the Yellow Dzambhala, and safeguard it with Kuan Kong or a Lock Coin.

For the Star of Reducing Energy, always make sure that you keep yourself in shape, and wear a Star of David made of amethyst or clear quartz. Furthermore, you’re also affected by the Illness Star and the Star of Reducing Energy might make it’s effect worse than normal, so you should definitely have Medicine Buddha pendant or Medicine Buddha Prayer Wheel.

I personally have a hand held, table top, and pendant Prayer Wheel. A Prayer Wheel has a very good calming effect.

I personally have a hand held, table top, and pendant Prayer Wheel. A Prayer Wheel has a very good calming effect. The prayer wheel will vary depending on the mantra placed inside. Nowadays, people use a prayer wheel with a microfilm to significantly increase the numbers of mantras that’s inside the prayer wheel.

Lastly, wear an image of the Piyao (Pi Xiu, Pixiu, Pi Xie, Pixie, Pi Yao) or Dou Mu Yuan Jun to appease the Tai Sui God of the year. I together with a help of a reader might come up with a Master Tai Sui Protection pendant. It’s called the Master Tai Sui Protection pendant because it will bear the image of Dou Mu Yuan Jun (to know more about her please click here) and a pair of Piyao. Hopefully, at the back it will bear the Tai Sui protection prayer. But more than that it is a Tai Sui pendant that will cover all the Tai Sui God, so one need not replace the Tai Sui amulet every year. Hope this comes to fruition.

The SHEEP…

Might have the notion or belief that this is going to be good year because this their year. Like always, I again would like to remind everybody that this is a misconception, and there’s no exception for this year. But it doesn’t mean it is going to be an extremely bad year for the Sheep (some will say Goat or Lamb). One thing you should realize is that you should appease the Tai Suey, if you do this properly you will definitely get his support and he will definitely help in making this year a very good year for you.

Base on the 24 Mountain Stars formula you have both the Big Auspicious and Small Auspicious stars, the difference is only in the amount of auspiciousness that they will bestow on you, but all you have to understand is that these are good stars and auspiciousness is definitely just around you.

You have to take note also that you have the #9 Flying Star or the Multiplying and Future Prosperity Star. Technically speaking, this is neither a good or bad star. The power of this star is to let you reap whatever you sow. This star basically multiplies whatever karma you accumulate. If you do more good things you’ll have more good luck in the future, but if you continue to do a lot of bad things, you multiply your negative karma as well. So if you’ve been good you need not worry because this year you’ll reap some of the good karma and help you go through the year, but if you’ve been bad you should try to negate all those negative karma and take advantage of this star by sincerely doing good. Remember, the operative word is sincerely.

Unfortunately, you’re in side conflict with the #7 Flying Star (also known as the Violent Star) and the #5 Flying Star (also known as the Five Yellow Star), which is one of the most dreaded stars. Thus you have to be really careful and ensure that you tempt fate by going out in the evening a lot. Always make sure that you are cautious, not totally paranoid, but cautious. The Five Yellow Star is also said to bring in 5 different kinds of misfortunes, so ensure that you get the help of the gods to keep you safe.

Lastly, your personal Lung – Ta or Windhorse is not very strong either, and this might make you feel a little down. So better strengthened your personal Lung – Ta also.

Recommendations:

The first thing you should do is wearing an image of the Piyao (Pi Xiu, Pixiu, Pi Xie, Pixie, Pi Yao) or Dou Mu Yuan Jun to appease the Tai Sui God of the year.

But more than that it is a Tai Sui pendant that will cover all the Tai Sui God, so one need not replace the Tai Sui amulet every year. Hope this comes to fruition. But more than that, on the entry of Feb 19, 2015 (midnight of Feb 18, 2015 and Feb. 19, 2015) do light incense on your altar or west section of your house.

The Kalachakra Pendant is one of the most powerful Buddhism tools to counter negative energies. Kalachakra doesn't have a direct translation in any other language but it loosely  means 'the one with 10 powers'. It is also a very powerful protection pendant.

One is made of crystal quartz engraved with a the Kalachakra, another one is made of stainless steel but enclose on it are colored Kalachakra sand and was personally blessed by Lama Zopa Rinpoche. The third Kalachakra pendant is a white gold Kalachakra with Kalachakra Mandala Sand from one of the Kalachakra initiation conducted by the Dalai Lama, this third piece is truly a collector's item because there are only 1,000 pieces made.

Has superb inner essence and Windhorse or Lung – Ta and this is your greatest asset for the year. Just remember to keep an open mind and remember while challenges await you, draw strength from your inner strength and go forward. Remember that for the year it is important to focus on small successes that will lead to the big ones. Do not be too aggressive and ignore the small ones just because you have your eyes set on the golden apple. Remember before you to the million you will need to start with the smallest coin.

The Flying Star formula shows that you have the Multiplying and Future Prosperity Star, technically speaking; this is neither a good or bad star. The power of this star is to let you reap whatever you sow. This star basically multiplies whatever karma you accumulate.

Remember, the operative word is sincerely. But your luck will largely depend on what you sow before.

You’re also in side conflict with the Tai Sui so it is important that you appease him because an angry Tai Sui can make it a difficult year for you.

Remember that you are also in side conflict with the #7 Flying Star, also known as the Violent Star or Star of Violence. Thus it is important that you be very careful. This coupled with the Robbery Star of the 24 Mountain Stars formula is a sure indication that you will have to be careful, be wary of possible backstabbing and betrayal also. There is a possibility of loss of money also.

Lastly, you are also in side conflict with the dreaded #5 Yellow Star, which 5 kinds of misfortunes, thus you must remember that you should definitely protect yourself against this star.

While you are in side conflict with the 3 – Killings this should pose no threat to you. Luckily, you also have the Star of Small Auspicious, and this should reiterate that you should focus more on smaller successes that leads to the big one rather than go straight for the biggest prize.

General Traits: Moody, dreamy, talkative, vain, outgoing, extravagant, over-confident, self-confident, attentive to friends, flamboyant, unaided, dignified, handsome, headstrong, arrogant, vain.

Is going to face a challenging year ahead, BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT YOU HAVE A STRONG LUNG – TA AND INNER ESSENCE SO THIS SHOULD HELP YOU GET THROUGH IT. The energies of the year are quite hostile towards people born under the sign of the rooster. The best thing to do for the Rooster this year is to work hard, strive hard, but keep a low profile. Don’t challenge the universe. Wealth luck is not impossible because the year’s bazi shows that wealth luck is attainable and therefore if you keep yourself protected you should be able to go through the year with problem.

You do have to be wary about the dreaded Five – Yellow Star or the #5 Flying Star though. This star is also Wu Wang; it says to cause 5 kinds of misfortunes that may affect your health, wealth, personal relationship, safety amongst others. Thus ensure other than getting the support of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Deities or Taoist Gods to keep you protected and safe. You do have to watch out for your temper and manage stress because little things might lead to bigger problems. The #3 Flying Star, which is the ruling star that affects all the animal sign, will also affect you more than the other signs also. Thus remember to always keep your temper and feelings in check.

You’re also affected by the Three – Killings, and if you read my posts about the 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep forecast, I said that for the year you shouldn’t really deal with the 3 – Killings because it is with the 5 – Yellow Star, but because you’re in the same sector, you will be naturally dealing with it, therefore it should not pose any problem. Nevertheless, it is still best to keep yourself protected.

Lastly, also with 24 Mountain Stars Formula, you are further affected by the Natural Disaster Star, and this stars doesn’t really just refer to rains or earthquakes but may also mean personal disasters that may naturally occur.

Recommendations:

To manage the Five Yellow Star or #5 Flying Star, wear a gold Kalachakra or a 5 – Element Pagoda (Five Element Pagoda) note that the pagoda pendant should be made of metal, either silver or gold, not jade or other semi – precious stone.

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.

There are different versions of the 5-Element Pagoda. However, personally the original version and a small one, I believe, is okay and powerful enough to counter the effects of the 5-Yellow Star.

To deal with the 3 Killings, all you have to do is wear an image of the Three Celestial Guardian, namely the Piyao, Fu Dog and Chi Lin (Qi Lin), or you can also wear an image of 3 different Buddhas, or Bodhisattvas, or Deities, or Taoist Gods or Goddesses. For those who have the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, please note that the image of Medicine Buddha, Kuan Kong, and Yellow Dzambhala are more than enough to deal with the 3 Killings.

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.

The 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.

General Traits: 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.

Will see that while wealth luck is within reach, this is a year to focus more on family, personal, and scholastic life. The wealth that a person born under the sign of a dog will come from this year bazi and not the flying star. This means that you will have to be more resourceful that usual, and you can get this luck by having a scholastic approach, meaning do research and study about the situation carefully. Whatever you do, remember career and wealth should not be your main goal this year. It should be your personal and family life.

The 24 Mountain Stars formula also indicate that you have the Star of Annual Killing or Yearly Killing, the effect of this star is that you have the tendency to become emotionally imbalance and mentally imbalance, this does not mean that you’ll go crazy, but this will mean that you may not be in your usual self when dealing with things. I hate being negative, but it seems that this star is quite strong this year and that some event that may be traumatic and may grave effect on your psychological and emotional well – being is really likely to happen. Furthermore, the Star of the Yin House also visits you, this means you will be more susceptible to the effects of Yin energies and you have to make sure that you continuously have a dose of Yang energy to counter this. Lastly, you are also in side conflict with the Three – Killings, but this should not pose any serious problem but it is still better to protect yourself from it.

Before we end the forecast for the Dog, you should also remember that you’re in side conflict with the 5 Yellow Star of the flying star formula, this star is said to bring 5 kinds of misfortunes, thus it is best to keep yourself protected from this star.

Recommendations:

To enhance wealth luck wear the 9 – Eye DZI with citrine.

To help suppress your Star of Annual Killing, wear a gemstone, I suggest going for jade. You can also wear the seed syllables HUM or TAM. Combine this with the image of the Kalachakra and a protective Buddha or Bodhisattva like Amitabha Buddha, Kuan Kong. Note the Medicine Buddha is also a protective Buddha.

Always look at the face of the Kuan Kong pendant that you're getting for yourself. The 'braver' the face the better.

It’s quite easy to manage the Yin House, engage in Yang activities like sports, go out and enjoy nature specially the sun, play positive games, eat out with friends, listen to good music, and I know my friend and reader DU will be happy to hear this, wear gold. By gold I mean yellow gold, make this in the image of Buddhas or Bodhisattvas and other powerful images to make it more Yang.

To deal with the 3 Killings, all you have to do is wear an image of the Three Celestial Guardian, namely the Piyao, Fu Dog and Chi Lin (Qi Lin), or you can also wear an image of 3 different Buddhas, or Bodhisattvas, or Deities, or Taoist Gods or Goddesses.

Lastly, to manage the Five Yellow Star or #5 Flying Star, wear a gold Kalachakra or a 5 – Element Pagoda (Five Element Pagoda) note that the pagoda pendant should be made of metal, either silver or gold, not jade or other semi – precious stone.

There are different versions of the 5-Element Pagoda. However, personally the original version and a small one, I believe, is okay and powerful enough to counter the effects of the 5-Yellow Star.

The 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

General Traits: Just, discerning, wise, intellectual and well-informed, lucky with money and in friendship, always admired, self-indulgent, cultured, loyal, reliable, may be naïve at times, loves to gain more knowledge, may be flamboyant.

Has quite a confusing year ahead. Wealth luck both from the Flying Star and the year’s Bazi or Paht Chee is available for the Pig or Boar to take, however, initial glance on the year’s bazi to the effects on a person born under the sign of the pig shows that there is some form of lethargy that will be experienced. Your personal Windhorse is also somewhat weakened and this might have an effect on your overall success and victorious luck for the year. You might feel easily disappointed or discouraged. On top of your inner essence is a little weak thus making you more susceptible to negative energies or negative chi.

You’ll also find yourself better pursuing personal and family luck rather than career and wealth luck, but this doesn’t mean that the last two will be elusive it only means, your personal and family life should take a front seat this year. When it comes to money or career, it is better if you engage more on a scholastic approach, this doesn’t mean that your luck is limited to education or research but whatever you do you should do your research and study the matter really well.

The 24 Mountain Stars formula shows that you the Star of Big Auspicious and the Earth Seal Star. The Big Auspicious star will bring a lot of auspiciousness to different aspects of your life and it might balance out some of the negative effects of the flying star and the year’s bazi or Paht Chee, but what you really should be happy about is the Earth Seal Star, because this brings about stability in all your endeavors. However, those who will find themselves changing career might not benefit from this star so much.

However, you have to be careful about the Yin House Star. This means that the star will make you more vulnerable to yin energies or may make you more susceptible to it. The effects depending on the how much Yin attracts may be from a simple setback, slight fever, or to accidents and grave misfortune.

You are also in side conflict with the Five Yellow Star, the effect of this star is greater for people born under the sign of the Dog, but nevertheless it is better if you protect yourself from the 5 misfortunes brought about this star.

Recommendations:

Wearing the 9 –Eyed DZI with citrine or images of Wealth Gods will enhance your wealth luck.

Get the Clear Quartz Generator to enhance scholastic luck. Similarly, wearing pendants with image of Manjushri, Lu Dongpin or Shakyamuni Buddha will also enhance your scholastic luck.

Of course, wearing a Windhorse is also highly recommended. And to strengthen the Star of Earth Seal, wear any gemstones. I personally believe that everybody should have at least one jade, so hit two birds in one stone, and just wear jade. An image of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva is also a very powerful enhancer for the powers of the Earth Seal. Furthermore, you need a lock coin pendant to help catch on the wealth luck.

This is a lock coin gold pendant, which is sometimes mistaken as a money bag. If you find your luck quite unstable, or easily flowing out, use the lock coin to act as a safeguard for your luck to make it more stable.

It is quite easy to deal with the Star of Yin House, all you have to do is engaged in Yang activities like go out and have fun, listen to uplifting music, play some mantras, or chant mantras, eat out with families and friends, be surrounded by naturally more yang animals like dogs and birds, be surrounded with flowers, and much to my friend and reader DU’s happiness wear gold. To add more yang wear gold in the image of the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas or Deities. By the way, a Happy Buddha is also very Yang.

This piece looks much better in person than in this picture but I know somebody who got this pendant. The person was having a hard time deciding, but for some reason when this picture was taken there seem to appear an aura like image. Also, this particular Maitreya Buddha pendant or Happy Buddha pendant is quite different because if you look at its face it has a happy but calm or serene face.  By the way, I'm sure there is a valid scientific explanation for the appearance of the aura, but for it to happened at the time when the person is deciding to get it or not, is something that can't be easily explained.

Namtso Salt: A Rare Buddhist Artisan Salt Used for Protection from Negative Energy and for Enhancing Wealth Luck!

Published Nobyembre 29, 2014 by jptan2012

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