Separated for 17 Years Brought Together By the Power of the Traditional Sutra Amulet: A Personal Testimony of A Person Who Has No Idea of What Buddhism or Feng Shui Is All About and a Little of My Personal Musings.

Published Setyembre 25, 2017 by jptan2012

For the past few days I was quite down physically, emotionally, and psychologically. The past few weeks has been quite challenging because three different groups have been consulting me about the same matter, and initially I wasn’t sure that they were all related then in the process I realized these groups were consulting about the same matter. They’re all in three different sides, well technically speaking, but the other two are on the same side, one on a personal level and the other one on a macro perspective. This has taken a toll on me both physically because meeting them is a tedious thing, psychologically because a lot of what was happening between them involves a lot of psychological warfare and deception, and emotionally because somehow one can’t get involve and become friends to some of them and of course one worries also especially if the reading or analysis of the chart shows something that is not nice.

Then a reader sent me a message who recently bumped into an employee of a professional Feng Shui consultant. And because my reader used to be a valued customer of the said Feng Shui consultant, the employee told her that his boss is really angry with me and blames me for the closing or downsizing of the Feng Shui stores in the Philippines. The employee further told my reader that it seems like it has become a personal mission of this Feng Shui consultant to malign me and bad mouth me in any possible way. And why is he sharing this with her, because he is looking for a job and wanted to work for my reader, so I think I will give the whole story some leeway for an exaggeration but still these things does get into you.Emily SMS

On top of that, another valued reader and friend for some reason stumbled into an issue and somewhat felt a little aloof. Of course, people surrounding him who doesn’t know him will be quick to judge, I’m just thankful that at the end all the positive things that happened prevailed for him to know and accept the truth. On top of that there was some sort of a miscommunication with a reader from Australia.

You see all these things sort of got to me and for a while I was thinking whether I should still continue writing or not. I have already written more than 800 articles, and even before I sort of feel that I might have written enough. So I thought I’d stop already or maybe stop on my 1,000th article.

Then I get another miracle and it all becomes clear again why I continue to write, despite of the anger of some people who are against these things, despite the attacks of some bashers, despite of some of my own shortcomings, I continue to write because of the miracles of the people who continue to believe and who continue to hope for miracles.

This particular miracle got to me because the persons involved waited for 17 years for it to happen.

Ben is an Uber driver. I met him October last year (that’s according to Ben) when my own driver was absent and I had to take Uber and we got into talking in the car because of a heavy traffic. I was with a friend at that time when Ben casually told us his story.

Ben is a single father of two. He lives on his own because his ex-wife is with their only daughter in Canada. His daughter, who happens to be his eldest, is now 25 years of age. My friend and I asked him why he didn’t live with them; he said he chose to stay because of his ‘true love’. His first wife has since remarried.

Ben said that he was not in – love with his ex-wife, he said they both got drunk and in the process he got his ex – wife pregnant and they bore a daughter. He said while his ex – wife is really not a bad person, they can’t seem to get along well especially ex – wife is a bit of a nagger. When their eldest was only a year old ex – wife left for Canada and made a promise to get them as well. Ben is the first to admit that ex – wife is a smart woman, and a hardworking one so when their daughter was about 7 years old they got their papers from Canadian embassy granting them permit to live in Canada with ex –wife who at that time was still his legal wife.

However, in the past few years Ben met another whom he had an affair with. Ben said he was contemplating separating with his wife then so that he can be with Lot the woman he is having an affair with. But Ben admits while he loves Lot he was racked with guilt for his wife. Nevertheless, she got Lot pregnant and knows that she has to do something about it.

Ben made a decision he will leave his wife so that he can be with Lot. But Lot wants Ben to talk with her father first, who has never liked Ben. So Ben and Lot’s father met. During that meeting Ben told his Lot’s father that he has decided to talk to his wife so that can properly separate and that he wish to marry Lot and take responsibility for the child. Should Lot and his father decides that they should not be married, he will still take responsibility of the child and give part of his salary from his job with Max’s Restaurant to provide for his child with Lot. The father was very amiable during that meeting, to which Lot was absent, and requested for Ben to give them a week to decide. And during that week, he told Ben not to see Lot because he doesn’t want her daughter to be confused and wants her to decide properly whether she wants to be with Ben or not. He told Ben that he would personally get in touch with him at his work. Ben said at that time they still don’t own mobile phones.

A week passed and he didn’t hear from Lot and her father. Halfway thru the second week he went to Lot’s house and he was met by Lot’s father who told him that Lot doesn’t want anything to do with him. He pursued Lot several times but Lot never once went out to meet him. Until the barangay told him that should he visit the place again he will be charged. Soon he found out that Lot’s family moved to a different house. He doesn’t know where.

But to be fair with his wife, he told her the truth and told her that he will not be joining them in Canada. So when his daughter left he explained to her why he was staying and told him she might have a sibling soon. That was 17 years ago last year and he has never heard of Lot again. He said he has been searching for on Facebook to no avail. He doesn’t even know whether their child survived or not and if it did he doesn’t know whether it is a boy or a girl.

Ben said he has never been with anybody else since then.

I just recently wrote about the Traditional Sutra Amulet (TSA) when I encountered Ben and was told about this story. My girl – friend who was with me at that time got really affected and told me we should do something for Ben. I decided to give Ben a TSA, and my friend who is a believer and just had a miracle from her Vajrapani Ruel pitched for half of the cost of donation for the TSA.

We got Ben’s number and he got ours. But of course we didn’t hear from each other again.

And so the past week I was feeling down and I got a call from Ben. To be honest, it’s been almost a year and I don’t remember him anymore. But Ben would help lift me out of that feeling of being down and he reminded me why I write about these things.

You see after 17 years Ben met Lot again and after 17 years he met his son! They now live together and will be married soon. So what happened?

After meeting Ben, Lot’s father went home fuming mad and told Lot to forget about Ben because Ben told him that while he will support their child financially, he will not acknowledge the child because he is married and is scheduled to leave for Canada! Lot was really heartbroken with this piece of news and so when her father suggested that she goes live with her uncle (his father’s brother) and auntie in Novaliches (a place quite far from where they live which is in Rizal) she agreed. That’s where she gave birth and soon his parents also moved to Novaliches and they lived next door to the Uncle and Auntie who took care of her while she was pregnant.

She didn’t know that Ben went looking for him but he was constantly sent away but his parents and that finally they threatened to charge him for continuously badgering them. When Lot’s son was 13 years old Lot’s father has a heart attack and before he died he told Lot that should he see Ben again she should talk to him. Lot said why should he when he has abandoned them, but Lot’s father just said that maybe Ben has repented, although Lot thought this was curious she just decided that this was all just musings of a dying old man.

When Lot’s son was 15 years old, he told his mom that he wants to meet his dad, but Lot told him to just leave Ben alone and that he has nothing to do with their life. She even refused to give him Ben’s name.

Last week of October 2016 Lot’s son had an idea to make a Facebook account for his mother, and he thought he’d put in the relationship status ‘Complicated’ in the hope that when Ben sees his mom’s account he will contact them. Little did he know that Ben would from time to time search for Lot on FB and he did see the account made by their son for Lot.

When their son saw Ben trying to add and chat Lot, he had a gut feel that this could be his father and saw he told his mom about the FB account he made for her and about the man name Ben who was trying to get in touch with her. Lot got so angry, angry like she has never been before. And so their son knew then Ben was his father. But Lot also asked for the details of the FB and he soon chatted with Ben.

She decided to meet Ben first and when Ben called her ‘Balot’ again, a pet name Ben created for Lot, she knew that she was still in love with Ben. And the rest is history. Ben said he is now trying to establish a good relationship with his son. He said it was not easy but they’re both trying. Ben and Lot will get married soon. Ben said he forgot about the TSA and never attributed everything to it. But when cleaning the house, Lot saw and asked him about the TSA, and he told him the story. They realized that their son put up the FB account a week after Ben got the TSA. And so that sealed their belief that it was really because of the TSA that they got back together. Ben wants me to be their godfather on their wedding. I felt I was too young to be their godfather but I still said yes. It’s a miracle that they got back 17 years after and my girl – friend who is going to be a godmother will want to witness the wedding that is 17 years in the making.

With this story there is another miracle, and that is the miracle of Ben sharing with me their story at this time. It helped me to stay on track to continue writing what I write. Will I stop on the one thousandth post? I don’t know but in the meantime Ben and Lot’s story is one of the reasons why I write and share these things.

Never Put A Septic Tank On the Right Side of Your House!

Published Marso 30, 2017 by jptan2012

Regular readers of this blog would know by now that any water feature on the right side of the house or building is really bad, because the energy created by having any water feature on the right side of the house or building is to encourage disloyalty and betrayal. Whether is domestic, husband and wife, or professional, employer and employee relationship.

When we say water features we refer to anything that connotes water, be it fountain, a faucet, or even simply a pipe. This is also refers to whether it is something that we can see or not, like if it’s hidden under the floor or ground.

But one of the worst water features you can put on the right side of your house is a septic tank. This does not only hold water, but it holds dirty (very dirty) water. The effect will be much worse than disloyalty and betrayal. The main problem will be still disloyalty and betrayal, but it will be the worst kind of disloyalty or betrayal. It may even end up with violence or death cause by a crime or murder or homicide.

It may also cause loss of business because of internal problems, which will be most likely due to betrayal of trust.

The cure for this really depends on how big the septic tank is. But usually one needs a powerful amulet for this. Recently, a reader had to use 4 Vajrapani Ruels(1), has instructed by Guru Lama, only because the septic tank is quite big and more than that, when they excavated the ground for the septic tank they must accidentally unleashed and hurt some entities.

However, it is impolite to simply put the Vajrapani Ruel(2) on top of the septic tank, one will have to make a house, more like a pagoda or a dome shape stupa where one should place the Vajrapani Ruel(3).

2017 Year of the Fire Rooster Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi, Flying Star, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: A Balance Chart But A Conflicting Year (Part 2)

Published Disyembre 27, 2016 by jptan2012

In my preceding post, which happens to be the first part of this post – 2017 YEAR OF THE FIRE ROOSTER FENG SHUI FORECAST BASED ON THE BAZI, FLYING STAR, AND 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA: A BALANCED CHART BUT A CONFLICTING YEAR (PART 1) -I talked about what the year’s Bazi has in store for us. There I talked about how power will play an important role for all of us this year, and how it is quite likely that there is a manmade catastrophe that will happen on the 2nd half of the year. This is quite bothersome on my part because in the previous years, the analysis on the charts has been almost accurate. This started with the Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) to the Nepal Earthquake, and lastly to the financial instability that we are experiencing at the moment. And so if the analysis of the chart is correct again, what may happen may be something big and will be most likely in a political sense.

At any rate, allow me to share with you now the analysis base on the Flying Star Formula and 24 Mountain Stars Formula.2017-flying-star

THE CENTER HAS THE #1 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE VICTORY STAR.

This means that the ruling star of the year is a good star or positive star or White Star. This is quite auspicious because this will in some way temper the challenging Bazi chart (Paht Chee chart) of the year, especially at the beginning to the year. As mentioned the beginning of the year may prove to be quite difficult for people who wants or have some projects to take off, but also towards the 2nd half of the year shows a lot of conflicts on the chart that it may affect a lot of us either personally and professionally and even financially. Although, technically the year proves to have a lot of money making opportunities but this may be hindered by year’s conflicting energies. For those who have a very good center in their houses or office will prove to be more successful. This also means the China might become more powerful this year.

Effects:

This star brings luck to your endeavors. It helps ensure your success. This year the White Victory Star also ensures that people whose bedroom or office is in the center will have wondrous victory luck.

Feng Shui Enhancers:

Put in your bedroom / office or carry or wear one of the following images – Victory Banner, Lung – Ta or Wind Horse, Kuan Kong, or Vajrapani Ruel or Surangama Mantra Amulet.

Note: That if the center of your house or office is a stockroom or washroom /comfort room/ rest room this is really bad and you should try to avoid using that room.

 

kuan kong 2

Kuan Kong (Guan Gong, Guan Yu, Sangharama Bodhisattva)

 

THE EAST HAS THE #8 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE WEATLH STAR BUT IT ALSO HAS THE THREE KILLINGS OF THE 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA

Effects:

This star is a very good star. It gives you abundance and to some a ‘bottomless’ pocket filled with money. This star is not just about money wealth but this is also for over – all abundance.

Feng Shui Enhancers:

Faux gold Coins or Bars or Ingots should be place on this sector. Wear an image of a Wealth Deity like the Maitreya Buddha, Kuan Kong, Bodhisattva Earth Store (Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha) or Sun Wukong.

 

24 Mountains:

This year the Three Killings also found its way to the EAST, Unlike the Tai Suey or the Five Yellow Star, which we must avoid, the 3 – Killings is something that we must confront. Meaning, the best way to deal with it is to face the Three Killings and not turn our back against it. If the 3 Killings is not confronted then it can wreak three kinds of misfortunes to a person. The three misfortunes are accident, financial loss, and illness.

So a good way of dealing with the Three Killings is to place the image of the Three Celestial Guardians or images of three different Buddha, Bodhisattva, Deity or Immortal in the East section of the room, house, office, and building. Those who are staying in the East section of their house, office, building, or room must wear an image of the Three Celestial Guardians or images of three different Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Deities or Immortals.

The Three Celestial Guardians are the Fu Dog, Chi Lin (also spelled as Qi Lin or Chilin or Chi Lin) and Piyao (also spelled or called Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu).

3-celestial-guardians

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

 

 

THE SOUTHEAST HAS THE #9 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE MULTIPLYING AND FUTURE PROSPERTIY STAR.

Effects:

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.

Feng Shui Cure:

Two years ago, I didn’t put any enhancer or cure recommendations because I want people to be more conscious about what they do. However, a reader told me that there are times that we simply, without intending to be bad, create some things that earn us negative karma. For this I highly recommend either the image of the Medicine Buddha or the symbolic script of the mantra OM AH HUM or OM HANU PASHA BARA HE YE SOHA both of which are on the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT. For those who don’t have the Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant, you can simply chant the mantras mentioned above or wear the Surangama Mantra Amulet or Vajrapani Ruel.

24 Mountain Stars:

However, the SouthEast has the Yearly Killing Star.

If your bedroom or office is in the SouthEast of the building or house, I suggest that you put a Prayer Wheel. And if the entrance of your house or office is in the Southeast or if the entrance is in the Southeast, I strongly suggest that you carry or wear a Prayer Wheel or wear an image of a Bodhisattva such as Kuan Yin Bodhisattva or Earth Store Bodhisattva made of gold.

Nevertheless, you also have the Small Auspicious Star and this should prove to be a small luck that may make a difference by counteracting the negative effects of the Yearly Killing Star, especially if coupled with an image of Bodhisattva made of gold worn as a pendant.

Prayer wheel solar

A solar prayer wheel is a prayer wheel that spins on its own with the use of solar energy.

 

 

THE SOUTH HAS THE VERY DREADED #5 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE 5 – YELLOW STAR OR WU WANG.

Feng Shui practitioners all know that this is the most dreadful star amongst all the 4 bad flying stars. In fact, sometimes it doesn’t matter whether you’re lucky base on your Bazi chart, if you are afflicted with this you are going to face a very challenging year. This year, the Wu Wang is ever more dreadful because it lands on the South sector, maybe not as dreadful as when it landed in the Northeast on 2016 but still it is more dreadful than usual. That is because the South is ruled by the fire element, which produces earth thus making the Wu Wang, an earth element even stronger or powerful. So the effects may be doubled. If you stay (office, room) in this sector or if your house faces this sector or if you are born in the year of the Horse, it’s IMPERATIVE that you deal with this star. If you are on a budget and there is only one thing that you can deal with this year, deal with this. I cannot stress enough the importance of dealing with this.

Effects:

The 5 – Yellow Star is the worst of all negative stars! It’s the most dreaded star. It is said to bring 5 different kinds of misfortunes!

And as mentioned this year the Wu Wang is much stronger.

Feng Shui Cure:

AGAIN! AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE MOVE OUT FROM THIS SECTION OR DON’T USE THIS SECTION. If that is not possible, you can also use the Five Element Pagoda (5 – Element Pagoda), and the Kalachakra made of gold. But I only recommended this as a secondary option. There is going to be a slight difference on how you use the Five Element Pagoda. First, make sure you are using a new one, take away the old ones and get a new one. 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.

For people who stays in this section of the house or building and if you can’t move out of this sector, it is very important that you wear either the Kalachakra (gold, jade or clear quartz) and the Five Element Pagoda (strictly in gold) and also carry with you at least 3 of the mentions amulets that has to be placed inside the Five Element Pagoda. Furthermore, people born in the year of the Horse should also ensure that they wear either the Five Element Pagoda (gold) and the Kalachakra (gold, crystal quartz, jade) and carry the above-mentioned amulets. The logic of this advice will be explained on the forecast for the Horse.

Admittedly, the 5 – Element Pagoda and the Kalachakra pendants can be hard to find, especially you need to wear them in gold. For the Kalachakra pendant you can search the web to look for one, there are some online stores that sell them in gold or clear quartz or jade. It might be a little pricey though. For the Five – Element Pagoda gold pendant, unfortunately, I have been searching the web where to get this but I can only find two sources. One is thru Lillian Too’s online store.

The other one is through a private seller. I only have praises for the one sold online in Feng Shui Megamall of Lillian Too, but the only draw back is that it can be quite pricey (relatively speaking) and with the tax and shipping fee involved, it’s price is almost doubled.

I also asked my Feng Shui teacher about other alternatives for the cure against the Wu Wang, and as of now it remains to be the 5 – Element Pagoda or (secondary) the Kalachakra and nothing else.

But I’m glad that a reader from Davao has since then provided me a 5 – Element Pagoda and Kalachakra with superb craftsmanship, unlike my previous jeweler, she has also proven to be quite professional and trustworthy. Her Five Element Pagoda pendant and Kalachakra pendant both fashioned in gold which is quite important for the purpose of protection is as good as that of the ones found online but with half or only 1/5 (for the Kalachakra) of the price.

It is worth noting again that for this year the Five – Element Pagoda should include some powerful mantra or sutra amulets and instead of soil put some crystals. For those who will need to wear the Five – Element Pagoda pendant it has to be in gold and carry 3 of the mentioned powerful mantra or sutra amulets above.

It is also important to get these cures early not only because they may be quite difficult to find but also because the energies of 2017 can be felt as early as January of the western calendar.

24 Mountain Stars:

The good news for the people who stays in the South is that unlike last year with the Northeast, this year the South is flank by two small auspicious stars. If you are aptly protected from the strong Five Yellow Star, these small auspicious stars should prove to be quite useful. For people who stays in the South and for Horse born people, it is important to protect yourself from the Wu Wang then enhance this star by wearing the semi – precious stone citrine and victory banner or an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva pendant made in gold.

 

 

THE SOUTHWEST HAS THE #7 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE VIOLENT STAR WHICH IS THE 2ND MOST DREADED STAR IN THE FLYING STAR FORMULA.

Effects:

The star brings hostility and loss through robbery, theft, or even manipulation. Next to the Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang, this is one of the most dreaded stars. This year people born in the sign of the Sheep and Monkey are affected by this star and those who stays in the Southwest are also side afflicted with the dreaded #5 Flying Star also known as Five Yellow Star. But more on that on the succeeding post. This year because of it’s side affliction with the Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang, the Violent Star is made stronger also.

Feng Shui Cure:

Since this is one most the more serious star that we have to take care of, it’s important that people whose houses are facing Southwest or simply staying in the Southwest side of their house or office should have the following: Vajrapani Ruel and 5 – Element Pagoda or Kalachakra.

24 Mountain Stars:

While the Southwest is also affected by the Small Auspicious Star, it is also unfortunately side afflicted by the Wu Wang (of the Flying Star Formula) and the Yi Duo. To help counter the negative effect of this star, it is important that you put a Surangama Mantra Amulet or a Traditional Sutra Amulet on this sector. For those who stay on the Southwest, it is important for you to protect yourself from the Yi Duo by wearing a Surangama Mantra Amulet.

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.

 

 

THE WEST HAS THE #3 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE ARGUMENTATIVE STAR.

Effects:

The Flying Star #3 also known, as the Argumentative Star is a star that causes relationship problem, numerous bickering, litigation problems, quarrels and problems/conflicts with people in authority. If not controlled and suppressed, this star will bring about tremendous problems with your family and officemates or business partners. It can also cause a lot of unnecessary legal issues. This star has to be suppressed.

Feng Shui Cure:

The best cures for this star are either the Ksitigarbha Fireball or the Nine – Ring Sword of Kuan Kong. The image of Kuan Kong is also a very good cure for this star. People affected by this star can wear or carry an image of the cures. The Maitreya Buddha also known as the Happy Fat Buddha is also a great help. These are what I normally recommend. But lately I noticed that another great cure for this are the Surangama Mantra Amulet and Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra Pendant. However, for this year, it is highly recommended because of the Fire Element of the Rooster, which resides in the West, might make this star a little stronger than usual. So instead of simply using the Ksitigarbha Fireball, it might help to have Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (Earth Store Bodhisattva) himself. You can place His image on this sector or for those people whose office or bedroom is in this sector should wear the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva pendant made of gold.

24 Mountain Stars:

This year the Three Killings also found its way to the EAST which is the opposition position of the West, thus making it facing the Three Killing. Unlike the Tai Suey or the Five Yellow Star, which we must avoid, the 3 – Killings is something that we must confront. Meaning, the best way to deal with it is to face the Three Killings and not turn our back against it. If the 3 Killings is not confronted then it can wreak three kinds of misfortunes to a person. The three misfortunes are accident, financial loss, and illness.

So a good way of dealing with the Three Killings is to place the image of the Three Celestial Guardians or images of three different Buddha, Bodhisattva, Deity or Immortal in the East section of the room, house, office, and building. Those who are staying in the East section of their house, office, building, or room must wear an image of the Three Celestial Guardians or images of three different Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Deities or Immortals.

The Three Celestial Guardians are the Fu Dog, Chi Lin (also spelled as Qi Lin or Chilin or Chi Lin) and Piyao (also spelled or called Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu).

However, it should be noted that this year, the Tai Suey God is in the West. It has to be noted that Tai Suey is not part of the Flying Star or 24 Mountain Star but we need to always take this into consideration because offending the Tai Suey will create a lot of bad luck.

The Taoists, where most of how we do Feng Shui originated, believes that a certain God called Tai Suey or Tai Sui or Grand Duke in English rules a year. This year 2017, Tai Sui of the year is General Tang Jie (唐杰). However, you have to understand a little about Taoist Gods for you to be able to understand why we have to be careful in dealing with the Tai Suey.tai-sui-2017-ofss

Taoist Gods are like humans with supernatural powers. They have magical and godly powers but they may also have human temperament and they also have characters and personalities. Meaning, they can get angry with our acts, they can be disturbed and get angry with us and thus render a punishment to us, or maybe the simple act of them getting irritated with us might create some misfortune. However, they can also be appease and happy with us and render us some good blessings, or again, the simple act of the Tai Suey getting happy with us will create some good fortune.

To help ensure that Tai Suey is happy with us always carry an image of the Pi Yao or Pi Xiu. This celestial animal will help appease the Grand Duke or Tai Suey. Another image that can help manage the Tai Suey God is to carry, display or wear an image of the Wind Horse or Lung Ta. People born in the year of the Roosters and Rabbits are directly affected by the Tai Suey God (also spelled as Tai Sui, Tai Sue) regardless of where there room is, also affected are the Horse and Rat, and they should have the Piyao. Also, if your door faces Weast, or if your bedroom and office is in the West you should also put the image of the Piyao. People who are occupying the West also should wear or carry the image of the Piyao. Also one of the best protections for the Tai Suey is an image of the Goddess of the North Star or Dou Mu Yuan Jun, thus having her image is also highly advisable.

 

 

THE NORTHWEST HAS THE #2 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE ILLNESS STAR.

Effects:

As the name implies, this star causes illness and to some extent it can be fatal or terminal. This star also causes some accidents that may make you invalid for a long time if not permanently. Everybody who stays in this sector is affected.

Feng Shui Cure:

To counter the effects of this star, it is important that one constantly recite the Sutra of the Medicine Buddha and the Medicine Buddha Mantra (TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA). Secondary cure for this displaying a Wu Lou (also spelled as Wulou) or Holy Gourd and putting it at the Northwest of the house.

Last year my Guru Lama has come up with a special Illness Suppression Amulet and that is he has combined three of the most powerful anti – illness and anti – accident mantras, which he has consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha and included some powerful Dharma Pills.

I shall write about the Dharma Pills in my succeeding post. But basically a Dharma Pill is a special small object that is made of second-class relics of high lamas and is highly consecrated. Please note consecration is better than simply blessing it.

The mantras that are included in this Illness Suppression Amulet are the Medicine Buddha Mantra printed in a blue paper, Namgyalma Mantra and White Umbrella Goddess Mantra printed on a white paper, and Amitayus Mantra printed on a red paper. Aside from wearing this, this should definitely be in the Northwest sector of the house or office. For this year, my Guru Lama has made an enhanced ‘version’ of this amulet. I still don’t have it but will see it soon.

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.

 

24 Mountain Stars:

The Illness Star in this sector is further strengthened by the Yin Chia Xing star of the 24 Mountain Stars; this is a star that will definitely make the Illness Star stronger. To help counter this star, it is quite important for one to have the Traditional Sutra Amulet on this sector. If you stay in this sector also it is important to have a Traditional Sutra Amulet (small size) in your body or a Vajrapani Ruel or a Surangama Mantra Amulet.

The good news is that this sector also has two Golden Deity stars of the 24 Mountain Stars formula. This is one of the most auspicious stars one can have, and it should help to counter the effects of the Illness Star and the Yin Chia Xing. To activate this star, it will be very well to invite a golden image of a Buddha or a Bodhisattva or a Deity or Taoist God. However, my suggestion is since Earth Store Bodhisattva is an image that plays a very important role this year.

 

THE NORTH HAS THE #6 FLYING ALSO KNOWN AS THE HEAVEN’S BLESSING AND MENTOR STAR.

Effects:

This star helps set the ‘tone’ of the year for people whose office, or room is in the North side of the house or building. Meaning, if you continuously do more good the more blessed you’re going to be. This also means that if you’re Chinese Animal Zodiac is not so good, you will have help from Heaven (Buddha, Bodhisattvas, Deities, Immortals, or Saints). This also means that you’ll be lucky enough to have people who will help you achieve your goal.

Feng Shui Enhancers:

In your room or office put some crystal ball or 6 White Jade tied with a red string. People who are staying in this sector and people born in the year of the Rat will do well if they invite an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity or Immortal by wearing their image as a pendant. I personally suggest one of the following: Kuan Kong, Avalokitesvara aka Kuan Yin, Maitreya Buddha aka Happy Fat Buddha, Shakyamuni Buddha, Medicine Buddha, Yellow Dzambhala, Green Tara and Earth Store Bodhisattva.

The #6 Flying Star is a star ruled by the metal element and North is ruled by the water element. If it is the other way around their relationship would have been on a productive cycle, however, at this state they are on a exhaustive cycle, so it means it may weaken this star, so it is quite important to enhance this star by putting any of the above recommendations that is made of metal.

24 MOUNTAIN STAR:

The good news this sector is further strengthened by the Big Auspicious star. However, there is also the Annual Conflict star, which may dampen the effects of the good star. You can remedy this by placing a Vajrapani Ruel or a Traditional Sutra Amulet on this sector of the house or building or bedroom or office.

 

 

THE NORTHEAST HAS THE #4 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE ROMANCE AND SCHOLASTIC STAR.

If the Northeast was the worst sector in 2016, it is now one of the best sectors despite of a presence of a strong negative star from the 24 Mountain Star formulas.

Effects:

Romance luck is heightened if your room is on this side of the house. For single people, you might have the possibility of finding love. For partnered people, you might find your love getting more ‘fragrant’. However, for married couple the effect might be two fold. First, you might find yourself loving each other more deeply, but there might also be the possibility of a third party getting involved. It is also called Scholastic Star because it also has a good effect on the scholastic pursuits of a person. Meaning, students may become more studious, and professionals might find that it’s easier to understand documents.

Feng Shui Enhancer:

For single person you can put a Rose Quartz Mandarin Ducks on your bedside. For married couple, you can hang the Double Happiness on your headboard. To safeguard yourself from a third party, tie an Amethyst Geode with Red String on the foot of your bed or ask your partner to wear a gold image of Kuan Kong. You can also use the power of Green Tara to ensure that this star works for the positive only. For those single people hoping to find love, you can also wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet or gold Kuan Yin Bodhisattva (also called or spelled as Avalokitesvara, Kannon, Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kuan Shi Yin) pendant.

24 MOUNTAIN STARS:

While this sector also has the Robbery star, a star that has to be taken seriously because robbery here doesn’t only mean physical / material robbery but also as well as ideas, businesses, or more importantly the greater possibility of having a third party for those who are married or attached who stays in this sector. For those who are in business this may means losing some business opportunities. Nevertheless, it is quite to remedy this, one simply has to put a Vajrapani Ruel or a Traditional Sutra Amulet in the said sector of their office and/or house.

But the good news is that this sector also houses two very auspicious stars, and that is the Big Auspicious star that will surely bring a lot of good things, but also it has the Earth Seal, and this star is one of the most besotted star. For this year, where one needs strong power to really be able to tap into once wealth luck the Earth Seal will show that it gives you a boost of power. However, like in any other years where the Earth Seal appears, this is a star that needs to be activated. One can do this by putting more crystals, especially Citrine on this sector. Also one very powerful way, if this sector is not a bedroom or bathroom or a toilet, putting an image of the Earth Store Bodhisattva (also known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) made of metal is a very powerful image to use to boost the full potential of the Earth Seal.

Understanding the Vajrapani Ruel Stories: Clarifying the Difference in the Miracles and Why the Anonymity of Those Who Experienced It!!

Published Hulyo 29, 2015 by jptan2012

Recently, I wrote about the story of RP whose family, as of the writing of this post, had three Vajrapani Ruel miraculous stories, two of which have been initially written about. The one experienced by his wife, MP, entitled “90 Million Pesos Mutual Funds Deal Closed Without A Sweat!” gathered the highest number of reactions for the Vajrapani Ruel Stories series (for lack of a better word) from readers, most of it, majority of it are positive reactions, while a few are negative.

Some people find it hard to comprehend that a financial advisor can close a mutual fund deal worth Php 90,000,000.00 (ninety million Philippine pesos), which is approximately US$ 2,000.000.00 (two million US dollars)! Actually its less than two million US dollars (approximately 1.9+ M US dollars) base on the latest exchange rate at the time of writing this post. Please note that the time of writing and posting may be different. But I guess this only shows the limited perspective of a person. Sometimes, the miracles we attract depends on the how wide is our perspective, so that is one reason why some people get so much miracles and some seems to have only a ‘handful’.

However, I believe our past life karma and immediate past karma in the present life has a big significance on the kind and ‘amount’ of miracle one receives. Most of my readers are familiar with karma so I will not expound on it, you can also search on it if you are not familiar with karma. Allow me to clarify this by giving you an example, but because I don’t read past lives, the only example I can give is the one that I’m sure happened in the present life.

First example, MP who was able to close the Php 90,000.00 mutual funds deal, is not a neophyte financial advisor. She must have established a name for herself, and she must have handled the past accounts properly that’s why when the construction magnate decided to buy a 90 million pesos mutual fund MP is the one he contacted. Furthermore, what she did with part of the commission that she earned will give you a perspective of what kind of a person she is. As mentioned in my post, I believe part of the money went to the restoration of a church and part went to computers for a public school.

Likewise, AP, RP and MP’s daughter, whose story I also recent shared with you must have been a good employee. Otherwise, the Vajrapani Ruel wouldn’t have worked so well with them.

If you can recall the story of GS in the Vajrapani Ruel Stories entitled “Miraculous Healing and an Unexpected ‘Miraculous’ Financial and Wealth Luck”, you will note GS and her husband, although I didn’t explicitly wrote about it, it can be deducted that they are good, hard working people who wants the best for their family.

Also for the very first modern day Vajrapani Ruel story that I shared entitled “How A Man Got His Land Back After A 20 – Year – Old Legal Battle” it is quite obvious that JS is a good son and a good person. So it is safe to conclude that karma has something to do with the degree of miracle one can experience from the Vajrapani Ruel.

But take note that it doesn’t mean that a bad person won’t experience miracles from the Vajrapani Ruel. Remember, we don’t know anything about a person’s past life karma, and it is entirely possible that if they have gotten enough good karma in the past, no matter how unfair it seem may be especially if they’re bad now, they may still reap it’s fruits in this life with the help of the Vajrapani Ruel.

Before I address the second most questions, which is why I only put initials in the stories that I share in my blog and has never publicly stated their name, I would like to explain why I want to address this question.

People have been asking me how come I have never tried what other Feng Shui consultants are doing. That is to publicly declare the names of those who consults them. I have long ignored this question because (1) I started the blog for the sole purpose of me wanting to write, this blog was never intended to become a Feng Shui blog but fate has something else in store for me and for this blog and that is to make it a Feng Shui blog. Furthermore, (2) I have always taken a stance that I don’t care whether people believe me or not, it’s up to them, or it’s up to you who read this blog. Whether you believe what I write here or not doesn’t change anything about the things that I have written and will be writing. But some people have since taken misinterpreted this action, and a few even took advantaged of this action.

In the course of writing on this blog, I have made some mistakes. I guess it was arrogance that made me feel that I don’t have much responsibility to the people who write to me or to the people who are asking for my help because I’m not a professional or commercialized (please note that professional and commercialized here are not used in the same breath) Feng Shui consultant, and that I’m here only because I love to write and happen to have wide training in Feng Shui, and that I’m just helping people out. That is where the arrogance comes in, no matter how subtle, it is arrogance and I admit to that fault. As a result, I ignored a lot of warning signs and in the process and have hurt some people. Some of them has since aired their feelings and are being addressed albeit slowly but they are being addressed. Again, a lot of people had taken advantage of this situation. But suffice to say the legit people who were hurt are being addressed. Also happy to know that two of these people have already experienced some miracle, specifically those who identified themselves as Ruth and Marian. I have written about their stories and it’s scheduled to be posted soon.

Recently, I met a reader from Bohol who came to Manila. CM has been in touched with me before and I agreed to meet her at that time because she wanted to meet me and consult some thing. I sensed her distress so I agreed to meet with her and agreed to do a consultation for free. She didn’t have to spend a dime on me when we met; we each had to pay for our own drinks. She wanted to get the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, but because my jeweler was unable to deliver properly anymore, I told CM to just copy the design and have somebody make it for her. This was after she mentioned to me that she has a friend who knows a jeweler. When we first met, her daughter went with her, which proved to be a wise decision for her because CM’s primary language is Bisaya, and we had a hard time communicating. In that meeting, I gladly and accommodated as much of her questions as long as time would permit, then we parted nicely.

After that first meeting, CM would always text me and consults me from time to time. I will always do this for free, no charge. I remember I even sent her the design of the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA pendant so that she can have her friend’s friend make the pendant. At any rate, she informed me later on that her friend’s friend is unable to make it. But she still would consult me from time to time. Until gradually her questions became less and less until I didn’t hear from her for a long time.

Recently, I sent a group message to some readers and in that message it was stated that it was a group text. She received the message and contacted me again even if she doesn’t have to reply to the message. She requested for the Vajrapani Ruel, but since she is still in Bohol she wanted me to wait for her and reserve one for her. I told her that that it is not possible, that I don’t normally accept reservations especially for the Vajrapani Ruel. She insisted and told me that her daughter was even asking as to why I was not willing to wait. To make the long story short I relented and agreed on a date to meet with her.

Prior to the meeting CM and I agreed on a venue, but she wanted to change the venue. I didn’t agree. So she went to meet me at place that I suggested. There before she got the Vajrapani Ruel, she consulted me on some matters again, and she was a little surprised that I was able to tell her some of the things that was happening in her life. She finally admitted to me that her daughter, whom I’ve met also, the one who was with her during our first meeting was trying to prevent her from seeing me. Apparently, her daughter heard or saw something that puts me in a bad light. I clarified to CM that some of the things her daughter might have heard are true but some are not. I understand that she is a daughter who cares for her mother, but what I find surprising is that we’ve met and she must have seen how much I accommodated CM, her mother, and they didn’t spend a single thing. In fact, she was there when I suggested to CM to think about and reconsider on getting the pendant. So I have to be totally honest here, I was a little hurt. But after some time and some thought I realized that it is really so much easier for people to believe what is bad, this is evident on how easy for most of us to jump on the bandwagon on convicting a person even before we’ve found the real facts. Yes, CM’s daughter and I have met, I believe that in that meeting she has no reason to doubt my sincerity, but as CM explained to me, her daughter had a bad experienced before wherein somebody duped her. CM also said has posed two questions, one is how come I only put initials in my posts and that do people who want to help other people still exist?

This had me thinking and that lead me to also write this post. First, why do I only use initials and not reveal names. Well, one when I write a story I write them because I believe in them and I want to write them, that is still my primary reason. This blog is my outlet for my desire to write, whether people believes what I write or not is really not my ultimate desire. Second, I value my reader’s privacy. It’s bad enough that I write about them publicly, to use their full name seems to me an abuse of their kindness for me to allow them to write. Having said that, some of my readers has given me the heads – up to name them but to maintain the standard and to make sure that they don’t regret it later I decided to just stick with using initials. Third, even I use their real names would you be able to check them out? Several if not most of them has common names like Roland, April, Bon, Merriam, Grace, Cristy, Joan, or family names like Cruz, Dela Paz, Tan, Chua, and Gonzales. I have to admit though some names are more unique and some family names are rare also. Lastly, I don’t think it was important for me to put their names because I don’t need them to be my brand ambassadors, because I don’t do this professionally or commercially. I’m not a professional or commercialized Feng Shui consultant. Again, I would like to clear that commercialize and professional are not used in the same breath here. It doesn’t mean that professional Feng Shui consultants are also commercialized and vice versa. Neither do I have anything against them.

And just an after thought, if you have let’s say 1% of 90 million pesos as a commission, would you want the public to know about it? Would you be going around to tell people about it?

So I guess I have answered a lot of people’s questions that CM’s daughter voiced out. Second do good people still exist?

Well, to answer that, I know that there are a lot of negative things that’s happening in the world. There are a lot of negative stories happening in this country. But if we are so focused on the negative that we failed to notice a the good news such as the few stories you can find below among the thousands like this, then maybe we are only seeing what we choose to see. I believe it was Mahatma Gandhi who said that a person only sees the things that his mind his accustomed to.

These are just some, a fraction, of the thousand and thousands of stories that good people still exist:

These are just a few of thousands of stories on the web. But I bet we can see some of these kinds of stories on your daily life. All we need to do is to make the decision to see them. At the end seeing good or bad is a choice.

 

The Landlord’s Tablet: More Than Just A Symbol of Power and Wealth

Published Marso 20, 2015 by jptan2012

“…the crowd, intoxicated with the unstructured power bestowed upon them by the government barge into the house of the man’s palatial house. They searched for the Landlord’s Tablet, and unfortunately for the man and his family, they have two. The tablets were used to hit them repeatedly. At the end, the master of the house with his children, in – laws, and grandchildren were all severely bruised. The mistress of the house was not so lucky, because she died in the process.”

In his book HUNDRED DAY WAR, which is considered as one of the most accurate book about the Cultural Revolution and the Communism that preceded it in China, William Hinton made mention of the Landlord’s Tablet. The Landlord’s Tablet is also known as the Rich Man’s Tablet.

The Landlord’s Tablet is called as such because in the olden times it is usually the rich person or a landlord who has this kind of tablet. It is also sometimes called as the Statesman’s Tablet. In some way, it has become a symbol of a rich man’s status and power, but the Landlord’s Tablet, which is also known as the Rich Man’s Tablet is not some kind of an official tablet declaring their wealth and power or that they are from the government. It is actually a Taoist – Feng Shui amulet that is put in the house.

Officially, for traditional Feng Shui masters and Taoist priests the Landlord’s Tablet, or the Rich Man’s Tablet or the State Man’s Tablet is actually called Ing Deng Pay (Pay is pronounce as pie), which is also called Ing Tiak Pay.

The Ing Deng Pay became commonly known as the Landlord’s Tablet or State Man’s Tablet or Rich Man’s Tablet because the ones who usually have are the landlords or rich man or government officials.

The truth is the Ing Deng Pay is one of the greatest Taoist – Feng Shui cure or enhancer one can have. Not all Feng Shui experts are familiar with this, and needless to say not all Feng Shui masters can make one. In the same manner, not all Taoist priests are familiar with making one. Usually, to make an Ing Deng Pay it will take for a Taoist Priest who is familiar with it and a Feng Shui Master who is also familiar with it to collaborate with each other.

Recently, my Feng Shui teacher has found a Taoist priest who is familiar with making the Ing Deng Pay and they have set out to making it available to people. The Ing Deng Pay is usually made of marble, granite, any hard stone, or hard wood. Sometimes it might have some crystals, depending on one’s birthday and/or needs.

In the old times, a Chinese businessman or politician will usually hire a professional Feng Shui master or a Taoist priest, most of the time both, or a Taoist priest who is also a Feng Shui expert to do a Bazi (also call Paht Chee) analysis and an analysis of his property. Especially if his property is missing a sector. They will then make an Ing Deng Pay to ensure that missing sector is countered and continuously cured of its adverse effect. In a way, having the Ing Deng Pay makes an auric or psychic sector. For example, if the missing sector is the South, having the Ing Deng Pay made under the chart of the master of the house and the missing sector will create an psychic South sector and thus it becomes like there’s no missing sector. Furthermore, more than creating a auric or psychic sector, the Ing Deng Pay is also usually incorporated with powerful inscriptions that brings in wealth and power luck. That is why most people that have the Ing Deng Pay are not only wealthy and powerful but has very good social standing in the community.

The Ing Deng Pay is usually hidden because if somebody who is familiar with the art of understanding and making an Ing Deng Pay and wishes to do you harm, they can come up with another Ing Deng Pay that will counter the inscription of your Ing Deng Pay sneak it in to your house and your Ing Deng Pay might lose it’s power. Furthermore, the master of the house usually keeps his Ing Deng Pay hidden because if somebody in the house wants to create bad luck for the master of the house they can steal his Ing Deng Pay and destroy it. Some Ing Deng Pay is hidden under the ground.

However, the Ing Deng Pay as written in my first post about it –ARE YOU SUFFERING FROM AN AFFLICTED BAZI THAT’S CAUSING SEVERE MONEY, CAREER, RELATIONSHIP, OR PERSONAL PROBLEMS? AN ING DENG PAY IS A POWERFUL TAOIST CURE FOR THESE PROBLEMS -was first created not for the missing sectors. The original formula of the Ing Deng Pay is originally for those people whose Bazi is severely afflicted with a lot of conflicting elements or signs. When a child is born, specially if its a son, the father will usually ask a Feng Shui master to check on the Bazi of the baby, if they see it’s afflicted they then make an Ing Deng Pay for him. It is said that the members of the royal family will have their Ing Deng Pay guarded 24/7.

It was not until the 17th century when a famous Taoist priest who is also a Feng Shui master discovered (or created) the formula for creating an Ing Deng Pay for the house. Since then, the formula was handed down from one generation to the other until Mao Zedong’s ruling disrupted it when he banned China. And to ensure that people get scared of acquiring and Ing Deng Pay the government seeded to the army and later on the Red Army of the cultural revolution for them to use the Ing Deng Pay to hit and reeducated landlords.

It has been a long time dream of my Feng Shui teacher to make an Ing Deng Pay, he is well familiar with the formula but he is not very confident. But it’s a good thing that he was introduced to a Taoist priest last year that is also knowledgeable to make the Ing Deng Pay, they then sent out to making Ing Deng Pay/s available to the public.

Note: I’m not showing a picture of an Ing Deng Pay because of privacy reasons. Some information, for those who are familiar with it, may reveal information about the owner of the Ing Deng Pay.

Clarifications on the Post About the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde

Published Hunyo 20, 2014 by jptan2012

I know that the information shared on this blog the other day about the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde entitled – WHAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE – & – PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE ILL EFFECTS OF THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE – can be a little overwhelming for a lot of you. Almost immediately I was bombarded by literally hundreds of emails, which I really haven’t read. On top of that, there were also an overwhelming number of sms that was sent to me, not to mention several phone calls.

I thought it is only appropriate to clarify something for everybody’s better understanding of the topic.

First, Mercury Retrograde is as mentioned a Western Astrology concept, I’m not an expert and I don’t have mastery of the said topic, however, I know it to be true because:

  1. I know that Western Astrology to be true. Before I dwelt on Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology, Western Astrology was my first interest. My personal bias is that Chinese Astrology is more accurate but it doesn’t change the fact that Western Astrology has some basis.
  2. Mercury Retrograde is a concept that I have read before. In fact, several years back. There are also some famous people who have claimed that they experienced Mercury Retrograde and that it has affected their relationship and work. Some of these people are Ronald Reagan, Cameron Mackintosh, Shirley Maclaine, etc.
  3. The few times I got to meet some reputable Astrologer, this is something that we’ve discussed. And they are all in agreement that this is true.
  4. Particularly this year, when June set in a lot of people have been complaining to me about their relationship problems and communication problems, which prompted me to do more research about this topic.
  5. I believe that it is stronger this year because of several factors that may affect it to become stronger. This is just theory and I didn’t included in the first two article because it is quite difficult for me to substantiate this, but the stronger Hungry Ghost Month this year might be making Mercury Retrograde stronger also.

Second, the stronger Hungry Ghost Month phenomenon is not something new. Although rare it has been known to happen. And it is different from what happened last year, because last year we had a triple whammy, but this year it is simply stronger Hungry Ghost Month that we have to deal with it, and because it is stronger, it also extends itself. As mentioned, I’ve consulted other Feng Shui experts, particularly my teachers; most of them agree that this is indeed the case. However, I would like to clarify that there is one particular Feng Shui expert that said that they (group that she works with) are not sure whether this is an interpretation concern. Meaning, they saw it but they seem to think that this is still subject to further discussion. They are drawing their unclear stand from the ‘Double Negative Theory’; this theory states that in some aspects of Feng Shui a double negative may be a positive sign.

Third, regarding the cures for the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde, I would like to reiterate that something is still way better than nothing at all.prayer

Lastly, we should not under estimate the power of a prayer. In fact, if you look at the suggested cure, a lot of it is drawing power or protection from Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, and sutras (Buddhist holy texts that are considered prayer books) and mantras, which is a form of praying. On top of this, I personally believe is also going to create some form of protection. Do good deeds, help people, help people you know, but more than that help people that you don’t know. Do something that is beyond what is JUST COMFORTABLE. The positive energy created by a very good deed is a very powerful protection, and remember a good deed is not measure by how many people you help or by how much you spent. A good deed is measured by sincerity, the amount of compassion you have, and how much of you was shared.

Protect Yourself from the Ill Effects of the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde

Published Hunyo 18, 2014 by jptan2012

In my previous post – WHAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE, I talked about how the combined effect of the annual and monthly flying stars and of the annual and monthly Bazi or Paht Chee are making this year’s Hungry Ghost Month so much stronger that its effects will be felt 15 days before the first day of the Hungry Ghost month which is on July 27, 2014 up to 15 days after its supposed last day which is August 24, 2014. This phenomenon is made worse with the last Mercury Retrograde periods of the year sandwiching this year’s Hungry Ghost month, leaving us with about 5 challenging months in succession.

At the start of the year, a lot of Feng Shui writers and consultants talked about how the first part of the year will show an abundance of luck for most people, and how towards the end of the year it will get depleted. This was obvious on the year’s Paht Chee chart; but nowhere was a definitive explanation of the cause discussed. It is actually only by accident that I came across a possible explanation. I believe the effects of both Mercury Retrograde and the particularly strong Hungry Ghost Month of the year occurring in succession explains why the energy of the year gets depleted towards the end of the year.

As mentioned in my previous blog post, as I wanted to validate my reading of the year’s annual and monthly flying stars and Paht Chee charts especially in relation to the year’s Hungry Ghost Month, I decided to call first my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong, and my Guru Lama in Singapore. Both of them confirmed the said phenomenon. After writing the previous blog post, and just before writing this one, I decided to call another Feng Shui teacher from Beijing, China, and he also confirmed the said phenomenon. Lastly, I was also able to discuss the matter with other Feng Shui consultants, who likewise acknowledged the phenomenon. Certain experts, however, are not sure whether they will be discussing it through any of their avenues because of two reasons: (1) they are not sure whether the effects are in fact going to be really bad (this goes into interpretations of the resulting calculations) and (2) if in fact the effects will be very bad, they are not sure whether remedies exist to successfully counter the effects.

In the course of writing this entry, I decided to call another Feng Shui teacher. This particular Feng Shui teacher practices Transcendental Feng Shui, which is also known as Spiritual or Third Dimension Feng Shui. Like the other Feng Shui experts that I consulted, he acknowledges the said phenomenon and like my Guru Lama he believes that we can do something about it.

Before I go into discussing how one can protect oneself from this phenomenon, let me explain that the recommendations below are an aggregation of the different recommendations that I gathered from my Guru Lama, Feng Shui teachers, and a few of my own recommendations based on my own experience. Also, it would be of course best if you follow all the recommendations; and, needless to state, following some is better than following none of them. I would also like to point out that it was a reader who since then has become a good friend, DU, who pointed out this direction of how to remedy this phenomenon.

Always have with you the following:

  1. Kuan Yin pendant, preferably with a sutra.
    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.

    Back image of the Kuan Yin pendant. This is the reason why I love these pendants is because they have very nicely crafted image of Kuan Yin pouring healing and auspicious from her magical vase, and at the back it has the Heart Sutra. Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to look for this kind of Kuan Yin pendant.

    Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to look for this kind of Kuan Yin pendant.

  2. Chong Kwei (also spelled as Chung Kwei) or Mahakala (a wrathful image of Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin) pendant. To be honest I’ve been looking for a Mahakala pendant and I’m unable to find one. For this year, according to my Guru Lama, Mahakala is preferred but no one can deny the efficacy of a Chong Kwei pendant during the Hungry Ghost month. Please take into consideration that he may be partial to Mahakala because he is a Buddhist Lama and Chong Kwei is of a Taoist lineage. Your Chong Kwei should be made of a black stone or gold.

    This is a rare black jade pendant image of Chung Kwei. Was fortunate enough to find one in Beijing, China in a small shop.  Remember in choosing a Chong Kwei or Chung Kwei or Zhung Kwei or Zhong Kwei, always get a something that's made of a black stone or gold. Otherwise, it might not be very effective.

  3. Kalachakra pendant, preferably made of gold or jade or clear quartz.
  4. Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva pendant.

    From my personal collection. A rare Red Amber Ksitigarbha.  Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to get a Ksitigarbha pendant unless you're from Malaysia, Hong Kong, or Singapore.

  5. Wear or carry a Prayer Wheel and spin it as often as you can.
  6. Medicine Buddha pendant or simply carry a Medicine Buddha sutra.
  7. Always carry a Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras or Lama Atisha Amulet with you at all times.

    I decided to put THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS inside a test tube type glass holder that I bought in The Bead Shop, then I included the incense ash, Pink Himalayan Salt inside before sealing it. Thank you to DU, a reader and friend who took this photo.

At home and in the office you should have the following:

  1. Figurine of Kuan Yin.
  2. Figurine of Mahakala or Chong Kwei.

    This is an image of a Mahakala, the wrathful form of Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin. Wrathful form doesn't mean that they are really angry, it means that they are largely use for protection.  This photo was uploaded from Google images.

  3. Figurine of Medicine Buddha or Kuan Kong. These two are optional.
  4. Figurine of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva. It may be pretty difficult to get a figurine of Ksitgarbha Bodhisattva. What you can do instead is print his image, laminate it and put it on your altar. If you don’t have an altar, put them where the other images are.

    In looking for an image of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva either as a pendant or a figurine for your home, you will come across with two versions, the one with the 'Amitabha' hat and the one where He is not wearing any hat and shows his bald head. I prefer the one with the hat, because the one where He is bald is usually associated with the spirits of the dead and connotes that he hasn't attain His Buddhahood.

  5. Put Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras or Lama Atisha Amulet on all the doors and windows of your house that are facing the perimeter of your house (living quarters). If you find it difficult to find these, then the second best option would be to use Kalachakra stickers.
  6. Put a small bowl of rock salt in all the rooms of your house.
  7. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: FIX ALL THE FENG SHUI ERRORS OF YOUR HOUSE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE THE YIN EFFECTS OF ALL THESE FENG SHUI ERRORS ARE MULTIPLIED.
  8. Play mantras in all the rooms if possible.

 

Do the following ‘rituals’:

  1. From July 12, 2014 to Sept. 8, 2014, chant, DAILY, 10 full malas of OM MANI PADME HUM, 10 full malas of the Medicine Buddha Mantra – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA, and 100 full malas of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva’s mantra. He has several and you can choose which of the following are you more comfortable with:
    1. OM PRA MANI DANI SOHA
    2. OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM
    3. NAMO DI ZHANG WANG PUSA
    4. NAMO KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA
  2. Recite both the Wish Fulfilling and Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra.
  3. Do the usual rituals for the Hungry Ghost Month that I’ve written about in the past.
  4. Try to make offerings at the temple or church or give to charity as often as you can.
  5. In reciting the mantra of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, it will be better if you gaze upon his image.
  6. Light some incense and read the following sutras as often as you can – MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA and KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA SUTRA, which is known as THE SUTRA OF PAST VOWS OF THE EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA. The sutra of the Medicine Buddha is in a blog post that I wrote about Him. Please see link below. If you want a downloadable PDF file of the Sutra of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, please click Earth Store Bodhisattva and KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA SUTRA. The two versions are basically the same but slightly differ in the way it was translated. One of the difference is that in one of them Shakyamuni Buddha is simply called Buddha, which is is the more common term in addressing Shakyamuni Buddha is most of the Sutra translations. This is because it is widely accepted that all sutras that we have now are from the time of Shakyamuni Buddha. A sutra is basically a prayer and word of Buddha written in a story or conversation format.
  7. Avoid the usual things that one should avoid during the Hungry Ghost Month.

For the Mercury Retrograde periods (June 7- July 1; October 4 – 25), wear an image of Kuan Kong or Kalachakra, and if possible, wear or carry with you a Prayer Wheel and spin it as often as you can.

Optional for July 12 to Sept. 8 is also to wear the script of the Wish Fulfilling Mantra and the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra.

There are a lot of things mentioned on this post that for some might be hard to understand. For example what really is Hungry Ghost Month, which I didn’t discuss in detail in these 2 posts about the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month, or about Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, Kuan Yin, four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras, etc. I humbly suggest for you to read some of my previous posts to make you understand things that were discussed here better, or why were such items recommended as a cure.
