Interment or Cremation: A Feng Shui Perspective!

Published Nobyembre 1, 2016 by jptan2012

I understand that the Roman Catholic Church now allows cremation provided that there is going to be a proper interment after.

Some of you, especially my regular readers, would know that I’m a big advocate of cremation. Why? Because this takes out a lot of the possible problem of Yin Feng Shui.

Yin Feng Shui is the branch of Feng Shui that has to do with the Feng Shui or burial sites or cemeteries. I myself am not very familiar with this because this is a critical branch of Feng Shui, something that may cause harm to the one who does this. My Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong is a certified Yin Feng Shui consultant, and my Guru Lama himself without explicitly telling me is somebody who knows how to handle Yin Feng Shui. But again this is a very delicate branch of Feng Shui. In fact, in Hong Kong there is a famous Feng Shui consultant, one who is adept in doing Feng Shui and who is quite famous because he has attracted some of the richest people in Hong Kong as his clientele. However, when he did a delicate Yin Feng Shui and went to the cemetery, he died right there and then while he was doing it when a landslide happened and buried him alive. I’m sure my readers from Hong Kong and Taiwan would know whom I’m talking about, just as those who are familiar with Feng Shui.

But no matter how delicate Yin Feng Shui is, one has to do it if one opts for an interment, because a Yin Feng Shui, for example wrong placement of the tomb, or wrong direction can lead to really tremendous bad luck to the descendants of the person. Or the person itself might go to the lower realms like Hell or Hungry Ghost or Animal Kingdom or it may make your life next life as a human really bad.

But I repeat, doing Yin Feng Shui that is why I never fully studied about it except for some basic guidelines. And throughout my life as a Feng Shui practitioner, I have never attempted to do Yin Feng Shui except maybe thrice. One is when we have to correct the burial site of my paternal grandmother because the first Feng Shui consultant who did it made a mistake, but in effect I didn’t do it myself because all the decisions were made by my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong and all I did was to relay details to him. But even I was just a conduit I made sure that I’m absolutely protected.

Then the second time was when my good friend practically begged me to help him correct his father’s burial site. Again this was done with the help of my Feng Shui teacher and Guru Lama and I again act as conduit.

Last time was when BM who has minor burial site with her mother’s tomb, my Guru Lama guided me what to do. In fact, I really don’t want to do it at that time but my Guru Lama said that I owe it to BM to do it and so I went to Davao and did it. But again, with BM it was just a matter of placing a Vajrapani Ruel and a special amulet and doing some ritual and again I made sure that I’m totally protected. In fact, I even have to wear a special ritual robe for it, which was later burned.

You see a wrong burial or interment process, or bad Yin Feng Shui will cause all sorts of problems to the ones left behind. But, as mentioned, also to the ones that was buried.

What are these problems? Well, it can range from extreme financial bad luck or grave ill health, or even turbulent and chaotic relationships. I know of a person who is unable to have a child only because of an alleged mistake in the burial site of her husband’s grandfather. Another loss all his family’s wealth when he didn’t have the proper direction of his mother’s tomb.

We can get rid of all these problems and potentials issues if one resorts to cremation. Of course, one has to consult a Feng Shui as to what is the best time to cremate a person, but that is the only concern one has to deal with, because with cremation, you actually take out the entire chi left by the consciousness of the person who passed away. In a way, you also get rid of the vessel and in the process you take away the entire chi also. That is why, when Westerners cremate and throw the ashes on the sea or mountain or even Niagara Falls, there is no bad luck that is created because there is no chi that comes with it.

The Argument of Who is Good and Who is Evil

Published Hunyo 8, 2014 by jptan2012

Good_Evil_Wallpaper_by_VermishisThe past few weeks, I was lucky enough to have several healthy discussions with a reader who has become a good friend. DU and I would always try to meet up to simply talk about Feng Shui and charms and amulets, however, lately our discussions has become so much deeper, to some extent it has become philosophical.

I believe we were discussing about karma when we got to talk about good and evil. She was asking me whether a person is innately good or bad. I told her that I believe that all people although they may be doing things that we perceive as bad, to the extent that we label them as bad are all capable of doing being good or they have the inner desire of wanting to be good rather than bad.

But the questions is although for most of us there is a clear cut definition of whether a person is good or bad, I really believe that in the end, while there are good or bad things and that there are people who do good or bad things there can’t be a person who is absolutely bad. As mentioned, I believe that most if not all people generally want to be good even though they may be doing bad things.

But what is really good or bad. I can go on and on and on making arguments of what is good or bad. I can say that if it hurts somebody then it may be considered as bad, but I would like to share here that in the Buddhist’s perspective, there are no clear cut answer of what is good or bad. What is good or bad boils down to the intent of the person committing the act. For example, and I’m sharing here what I told Denise, if I slap her people will generally think the act as bad, but the truth is it boils down to my intent. Using this as en example to drive my point but even if I cannot give a reason as to why I would slap DU, in Buddhist perspective the act itself should not be categorized as good or bad, it’s the intent that one must look at.

We got to talk about Hitler, and I know I must thread carefully here in talking about him. History has already presented Adolf Hitler as one of the most evil people the world has witnessed and the world has ever had. Maybe he is, I certainly don’t agree with the things he has done. But if I were to be a good Buddhist, the truth I should not readily judge him, what I should be doing is to look at Hitler’s intent. I should be asking questions like what were his intentions? Is it possible that he truly believe that the Aryan race is the superior race and that he is doing the world a favor by eradicating all the Jews in the world? Again, I’m not saying he is right, in fact even if I live in a different generation, I cant help it but be appalled at the thought of what he did to the Jews. I’m appalled that be orchestrated the holocaust! The act of killing human, much less all those innocent, helpless kids makes me angry, but if I were to be a good Buddhist I should not be judging Adolf Hitler as evil, instead in the end one should look at his intent, and again at the end only he can truly say what were his intentions.

Of course, we cannot deny all the evil that he has done and as a Buddhist it is my belief that one has to fight all the “bad” things that are happening in this world, keeping quiet is almost tantamount to doing the act itself. But we should fight this with love and compassion and kindness. However, the “perpetrator” should not be judged and one should deal with the “perpetrator” with love, compassion, kindness, and we must seek to understand his or her motivation and intent. In truly trying to understand the motivation and intent it is only then when we can truly help stop his acts that may be causing harm. However, we can never judge the “perpetrator” because in the Buddhist perspective he is the only one who can judge his or her intent and whatever his intentions are it will be dealt with by his karma.

Mayan Apocalypse 2012 is Not Happening!

Published Disyembre 19, 2012 by jptan2012

When I was not yet very familiar with Feng Shui, I actually thought that Y2K might be an apocalyptic year, not because it is the end-of-the-world but because I can’t imagine a world without computers and electricity, and they’re people who are seriously afraid that this might happen. I was delving into Feng Shui already at that time, but I didn’t fully believe in the power of the calculation of Bazi or Paht Cheeand truth be told, I’m not yet familiar at that time in counting the Year Bazi.

apocalypse-world-121119Having said that, I would like to announce, in fact, I would like to declare that Dec. 21, 2012 is not apocalyptic day. The end-of-the-world is not about to happen on that day. Reviewed the Bazi charts and it will not happen on that day. Neither anything really bad on a worldwide magnitude will happen on that day.

Also, in a Buddhist perspective, there is no such thing as end-of-the-world, at least, not in the perspective of how Christians views it. From time-to-time some cleansing might happen, but not an end-of-the-world scenario, not until we all reach Buddhahood.

Having said that, Psy of the famous Oppa Gangnam song, is not a sign that predicted by Nostradamus that end-of-the-world is about to happen.

Also, I took the liberty of putting a link here of the top 5 apocalypse that never happened. Please click here.
