2018 Year of the Earth Dog Feng Shui Forecast for the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac Signs (Chinese Horoscope)

Published Disyembre 14, 2017 by jptan2012

earth dog2The whole process of coming up with a forecast is a very tedious process. Although I cross – reference the important factors with my Guru Lama and/or Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong, the whole process of coming up with the computations, the analysis, and eventually is single journey on my part. A lot of you have been writing to me, sending me messages and a few of you have been calling asking for my forecast, especially the forecast of the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiacs (Chinese Horoscope), but please understand, as mentioned, this for me is a single journey, I don’t have a team who do the analysis and the computations and the writing for me, I do everything on my own, albeit with the guidance of my Guru Lama and Feng Shui teacher.

I also would like to thank all of you who have written to me to share with me how much this forecast has guided you, and how you think that it is accurate. Nevertheless, I want to remind everybody that these forecasts can’t be 100% accurate because at the end, there are things that will really depend on your “Basket of Elements” base on your Bazi Chart / Paht Chee Chart, and also there are things that will depend on your karma and with the Feng Shui of your house and office. However, you can certainly use this forecast as a guide.

It is also quite important that you read the 2018 YEAR OF THE EARTH DOG FENG SHUI FORECAST BASE ON BAZI CHART, FLYING STARS FORMULA, AND 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA Part 1 and Part 2. This will help you a better overview of what is really in-store for the year. And as mentioned, base on the chart of the year, there is an absence of metal which represents money luck / wealth luck / financial luck of the year. So, for everybody, there might be some money-making hindrances. To avoid being a victim of this unfortunate occurrence, and to help ensure that you continue to have wealth luck, it is extremely advisable for you to wear a SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO (also spelled or called as Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pixie, Pi Xie) or the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET. Since there is no such thing as excessive activation of wealth luck this year, you can actually wear both.

Inner Chi and Life Chi is also weak for everybody, if these two are weak, then it is easy for one to give up and to just not fight for what one wants. Again, everybody is affected, and so it is extremely beneficial for everybody to wear an image of Bodhisattva Earth Store as a gold pendant. EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA is also known as Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa or Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva.

ksitigarbha statue

Again, if using an image of Ksitigarbha at home, I prefer to use the one with the crown, unless, he is placed the ancestral altar.

In cases that I mentioned that Inner Chi or Life Chi is strong it is still in relatively speaking in terms of its relationship to the year.

Lastly, the good news is that we have the Jiang Xin, an auspicious star that brings wealth and recognition, and aside from wealth, you will need to recognize for you to have more advantage in tapping into your wealth luck. However, due to the absence of the metal element, it is extremely good for you to activate this star so you can tap into its power. You can do this by wearing the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA Combined Amulet.

Of course, we all have to wear more gold also regardless of your “Basket of Elements”!

The three above mentioned amulets actually form the Holy Trinity of Amulets for the year.

And like last year, I will heed the request of my readers, to as much as possible to put photos of the amulets in all the animal signs. In the previous years, I will only put a picture in one of the animal signs since some of these are repeatedly mentioned, however, as my readers pointed out they sometimes jump the other animal signs that doesn’t concern them, so it’ll be better if I just put the link and photos in all the signs.

Also, as requested, I have streamed line the recommended cures. Before I always want to give you a wide array of cures or enhancers, but a lot of you have been complaining that this becomes confusing and so now I only recommend those I have really used lately and those that I know will really work. In this case, you will notice that I repeat a lot of cures. Furthermore, you may notice that sometimes I recommend a different for the same affliction. This is because I consider the “Basket of Elements” of the animal zodiac we are talking about.

One thing that you have to note that Chinese New Year (Lunar New Year) doesn’t come in until February 16, 2018. This means that there is ‘no spring’ this year, the change of energies will be quite abrupt. However, if you notice a lot of the energies next year will be a similar to the energy of the last three months of the lunar year of 2017. ‘No Spring’ means no renewed energies which is especially needed to attract wealth luck / money luck / financial luck. This together with the lack of metal of the year is actually quite a bad thing to happen. But I not a doomsayer, and there is no use knowing these things if we cannot remedy it. What you should do is to create spring into your life. You do this by putting fresh flowers with various colors around your house and office on February 4. If you have an altar, place some flowers on your altar also and a small bowl of clean water. Do this before 8am, and remove the water from the altar by 5pm, and use it to water some plants or a plant, or throw it on your front yard. Make sure you remove the flowers before it wilts. You can use roses, but make sure you take away all the thorns, otherwise this will invite a hurtful relationship throughout the year.

Now let me go to my forecast for each of the 12 Chinese Horoscope signs (Chinese Animal Zodiac)


RAT

RAT Chinese Zodiac

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

While I don’t’ like to start off with the negative, unfortunately, I always start off the forecast with the first animal sign. Normally, in a forecast using the Bazi Chart (Paht Chee Chart), the Flying Stars Formula, and the 24 Mountain Stars Formula, some will be bad and some will be good. I’m really sorry to say that it is not the case for the people born in the year of the Rat. As much as I look for a positive sign, a positive star, a positive computation or analysis, I can’t seem to find one. For the rat, aside from my Feng Shui teacher, I also went to ask other Feng Shui experts or Feng Shui consultants, I even called up the daughter of a very famous Feng Shui expert, but as fate would have it, we all have the same prognosis – THIS IS NOT A GOOD YEAR FOR PEOPLE BORN UNDER THE SIGN OF THE RAT!

Why?

The Bazi Chart, the Flying Stars Formula, and the 24-Mountain Stars Formula all shows negative readings or negative stars. It is only Guru Lama who has something positive to offer, and he said we are forgetting about karma. He said, karma plays an important role, and a good karma can offer so much protection. Furthermore, he added that prayers especially if we have faith will definitely work and offer not only protection but also good energies or good luck. Lastly, we still have the amulets that can certainly help us.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. First, allow me share with you my analysis for people born under the year of the rat.

I believe the keywords for the rat is take it slow but put it hard work and determination. The Rat faces a tremendous number of afflictions this year, but do not fight it but rather have a quiet acceptance and then just rise above the situation would be my advice. First, the Rat has a weakened Spirit Chi and Life Chi and Inner Chi. A weakened Spirit Chi means you have to constantly remind yourself how being spiritual has worked for you in the past, because this year you might find yourself questioning your faith and belief in the higher being. Weakened Life Chi and Inner Chi means you might feel insecure and without self-confidence. You will have to learn to trust amulets rather than continue fighting the flow of energies.

The interaction of the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog’s elements with the elements of the Rat are in quite hostile. As mentioned, Spiritual Chi is low, and to address this concern it is very important for you to wear an image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE as a gold pendant. This cure will also address the concern the low Inner Chi and Life Chi but it will still be good to wear a the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS & LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET, to help you survive the year.Ksitigarbha

Like any other signs, and like everybody else, you will have to increase your metal energy. You do this by wearing more gold! Having the VAJRAPANI RUEL will also help increase positive thought and welcome positive energies, and you will definitely need this a lot.

Vajrapani Ruel

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

The most dreaded star of the Flying Star Formula afflicts people born under the sign of the Rat. While the #5 Flying Star, which is also known as the 5 Yellow Star (Five Yellow Star) or Wu Wang, can bring all sorts of havoc to those born in the year of the Rat. In fact, being afflicted with this star will affect all aspects of your life, especially the weakest part of your life. It can cause financial havoc, or tragic accidents or even relationship problems. Some people say that the Wu Wang embodies all the negative stars of the Flying Stars Formula. The star could also turn away supporters and friends. This means that this year that you will have to be really cautious, while the star is not as strong as the Wu Wang of 2016 when it afflicted people born on the year of the Ox. It is still quite strong than the previous years. In fact, for some reason the 5-Yellow Star has been quite strong for the last three years. So, people under the sign of the Rat will definitely have to deal with this. The best way to deal with this is to wear a pendant of a gold FIVE ELEMENT PAGODA! This is the only cure for this star, and since it is quite strong, one should wear the 5-ELEMENT PAGODA with a gold KALACHAKRA pendant.

The Rat is also sitting on the Natural Disaster Star of the 24 Mountain Stars Formula. While this star normally doesn’t have any effect because of the weakened state of the Rat, this star could wreak havoc to a person by increasing its chances of going through an accident. This star will put you at “wrong place at the wrong time”. The good news is you can easily protect yourself from this star either thru one of the following: (1) WEARING A GOLD PENDANT IMAGE OF BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA (Earth Store Bodhisattva / Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa); (2) WEARING A GOLD KALACHAKRA PENDANT; (3) carry a VAJRAPANI RUEL.

You can also constantly chant the following mantras everyday:

  1. OM AMI DEWA HRIH
  2. OM VAJRAPANI HUM
  3. TADYATHA OM ANALE ANALE KHASAME KHASAME BHAYRE BHAYRE SAUMA SAUME SARVA BUDDHA ADISHTANA ADISHTITE SOHA OM SARVA TATHAGATHA USHINISHA SITATAPUTRA HUM PHAT

As if all these are not enough, the Rat is also afflicted with the Three Killings, and while it is easy to dealt with this star, and I’m not normally worried about this star, again the weakened state of the Rat will make it more susceptible to the negative effects of this star. The effect of this star is to bring major damage by way of three losses. It the past, I observe that these 3 losses are usually wealth, health, relationship. But it can be any other aspects of your life. To protect oneself from it, you can carry the THREE CELESTIAL GUARDIANS or wear three SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO.

3 Celestial

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

I said that a Rat should also work hard and this should help in making things better. However, if success comes to you it will be followed by malicious jealous people, which may cause the lack of recognition and/or financial recognition for you. To guard yourself from this, you should definitely activate your Jiang Xing, and you can do this by carrying with you the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET.

Looking at the Bazi Chart, the health luck of a Rat should be good. However, all the negative stars from the other formulas will definitely take a toll on the mental health of a Rat. Thus, it will be good for a Rat to have the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET and an AMETHYST worn either as a bracelet of pendant or a ring. This is especially true for the 46 and 58 years – old Rats. If you don’t have the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET, you can also wear the MEDICINE BUDDHA PENDANT and also chant the MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA:

TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDANZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA

Illness Suppression Amulet3

NOTE: THIS IS THE OLD ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET. THE NEW ENHANCED ONE IS IN A METAL CASE. 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.

Furthermore, the disharmonious “Basket of Elements” of the Rat also brings in a lot of negative energies, thus it is best to be protected with the LOTUS DIPAMKARA AMULET. This is a special amulet made of jade and consecrated to Dipamkara Buddha (Dipankara Buddha) and is only recommended for the Rat.

Wealth luck is generally bad for the year, but amongst the Rats, it is the 58 and 34-year-old Rat that will have some edge when it comes to wealth luck or money luck or financial luck. It is the 46-year old Rats that needs to take the most caution. But in the end, all Rats should learn that money might be a little elusive this year. To remedy this, I highly recommend either or both the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO or the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.

 


OX

Ox Chinese Zodiac

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

While it is not perfect, people born under the sign of the Ox will enjoy a good year ahead. This may not be in terms of wealth luck or money luck, but they will definitely have personal and professional success, if they rise above their own temper. In fact, this year the Ox’s biggest enemy will be themselves, especially their temper. And this temper might destroy even their personal relationships.

Inner Chi and Life Chi are both very good, the only thing that is weak is Spiritual Chi, but most Ox has a strong foundation on their faith so they won’t really get affected by this right away. Nevertheless, it is good to protect oneself by wearing a gold pendant of the image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE (also known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa).Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva

The Ox might also be a little prone to negative energies thrown to them by jealous people, and they also might be a little susceptible to the negative energies of the year. This may cause some bad lucks and it is advisable that one should be protected by the VAJRAPANI RUEL. Furthermore, CHANTING THE MANTRA OF BODHISATTVA VAJRAPANI should also really help.

Vajrapani Bodhisattva Mantra: OM VAJRAPANI HUM

One of the biggest concern for people born under the sign of the Ox, and perhaps the only major concern aside from the wealth luck concern that affects everybody is that the #3 Argumentative Star afflicts the Ox this year. This star brings in a lot of fighting, gossip, tension, stress that may lead to the destruction of relationships or even court cases. In extreme cases, it might bring hostile fighting involving knives and guns. Make sure that you protect yourself from this energy by wearing a deep RED STONE like RUBY or GARNET. You can wear this either as pendant, ring, earrings, or even as a bracelet. You can also WEAR AN APPLE PENDANT and this should really deflect this negative energy. Furthermore, the VAJRAPANI RUEL is a very powerful amulet to deflect the negative effects of this star.  Having the SURANGAMA MANTRA AMULET should also bring in a harmonious energy into your life.

One of the best news is that the Ox sits on the Big Auspiciousness Star of the 24 Mountain Stars, this is a very powerful star brings in success and wealth. We really need to activate this star because this star also brings in wealth and we all need to attract wealth luck this year in any possible way we can get it, and wearing the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET should activate the Big Auspiciousness Star. It is important that this amulet should be in a metal case this year.

The Ox also sits on the Annual Killing Star of the 24-Mountain Stars Formula. This may create some personal problems in your life that will lead to health concerns. However, you can easily protect yourself from the effect of this star by wearing a GOLD KALACHAKRA PENDANT.

kalachakra gold pendant2

This is a Kalachakra pendant released by Lillian Too. I really love this pendant but find it too expensive. The Kalachakra Symbol is a powerful protection symbol. It is actually ten syllable mantra compressed into one symbol. The mantra is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, it is usually chanted with OM AH HUM thus making the complete mantra as OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. It is because off this that for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

The Ox is also in a confrontational position against the Tai Sui (Tai Suey / Grand Duke Jupiter) and offending the Tai Suey can be really bad. But simply having a Piyao, especially the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO should be enough to appease the Tai Sui.

While the 21 and 81 years old Ox should be cautious of their age, it is the 45 and 57 years old Ox that needs to take the most caution. They will have to protect themselves by wearing an image of the MEDICINE BUDDHA or by wearing the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET. Likewise, RECITING THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA (download The-Sutra-On-The-Original-Vows-And-Merits-Of-The-Medicine-Master-Lapis-Lazuli-Light-Tathagata)and/or CHANTING THE MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA should really help also.

Medicine Buddha Mantra: TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA

medicine buddhaBecause of the strong inner chi and life chi of the Ox they will find themselves ahead of the other animal signs, but one has to stay grounded and remember that failing is part of life because forgetting this will be the sure cause of failure. Wealth luck is bad for everybody, but with the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO or VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET an Ox will find themselves a little ahead of the wealth race. It is the 45-year old Ox that needs most caution and thus needs the special protection and power of both the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and of the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.


TIGER

1TIGER

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

The Tiger and the Ox almost always has similar lucks. And this year is the same. The forecast for the Tiger also shows some very positive points, of course, while it is not perfect, it still really good. It might be so good that this year you may tend to be aggressive. So, watch out for that attitude, you wouldn’t want to earn the jealousy of other people that may plot against, whether intentional or unintentional, you receiving the recognition or financial recognition that you deserve. To protect yourself from this it is highly recommended that you wear or carry with you the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND THE LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULETS.

Like the Ox, the Tiger finds itself in a fairly good situation. The “Basket of Elements” of the year of the Tiger are both in harmony. This makes the Tiger to have a strong Spiritual Chi and Life Chi. However, Inner Chi might be a little low, but simply having the VAJRAPANI RUEL should help.

However, the Tiger is also afflicted by the #3 Flying Star also known as the Argumentative Star. Again, this star brings in conflict, tension, stress and misunderstanding that may lead to loss of dignity, loss of good name, and this may also lead to court cases and serious hostilities that involves knives or guns. It is important that you protect yourself from this, by having the VAJRAPANI RUEL and/or by wearing a DEEP RED STONE as jewelry. RUBY and GARNET are quite powerful. Wearing an APPLE PENDANT should also help a lot, and likewise having the SURANGAMA MANTRA AMULET should also bring in some harmonious energy.

The Tiger has the Earth Seal Star from the 24-Mountain Stars, this helps bring in some good chi that adds to a more positive outlook of the year. This will also help you get grounded. Wear a gold pendant of the image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE (also called Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa) to help further strengthen this star.

Furthermore, you also have the Big Auspiciousness Star, and this star will help propel you to success and will also help bring in wealth luck, especially in a year where wealth luck is weak or nonexistent. You should activate this by wearing the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and let your Piyao do the chasing for wealth and auspiciousness for you.

It is a good year for the Tiger in terms of their health luck.

Wealth luck is relatively good as long as a Tiger is creative enough. But remember, there is an absence of wealth luck this year so having the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO or the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET is a must for the Tiger to be able to tap into their relatively good wealth luck. However, it’s the 56-year old Tiger that needs to be most cautious will prove to be the most problematic when it comes to money-making capabilities.

 


 

RABBIT

RABBIT chinese zodiac

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

Aside from one dreaded star from the Flying Stars, the year should be good for people born under the sign of the Rabbit. In fact, it’s quite a unique year for people born under the sign of the Rabbit. With determination and hard work, you will definitely come to see the fruition of the things that you worked on the past year. There will be several opportunities for the Rabbit this year, and if you are creative enough and hardworking enough and if you have enough foresight you will see yourself breaking new boundaries this year.

The Inner Chi, Life Chi and the Spiritual Chi of the Rabbit are all very strong this year, and thus will provide a big push for you to achieve whatever you want to achieve.

One major cause of concern is that you have the second most dreaded star of the Flying Stars, which is the #7 Flying Star or the Violent Star! This is a star that causes loss, accidents, and betrayal among other things. This is a star that you will definitely want to be protected from. Don’t fully trust people, even though they may be somebody you have worked with in the past. You need to be extra careful also in all your endeavors. Be very careful with the documents that you sign and always make sure that you read them twice or thrice. While you shouldn’t be selfish, don’t overly share information about what you do also, especially if the information that you share can be used to sabotage your progress. The strength of this star is also slightly stronger this year, so precaution should be definitely made. To help counteract this star it is strongly recommended that you wear a GOLD KALACHAKRA PENDANT or carry the VAJRAPANI RUEL with you. It will also be extremely beneficial is you supplement these amulets with chanting of the mantras of the PROTECTIVE DEITY KALACHAKRA and VAJRAPANI BODHISATTVA.

Mantra of the Protective Deity Kalachakra: OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT

Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani: OM VAJRAPANI HUM

The Annual Conflict Star found in the 24 Mountain Stars brings some concern also. These may be little matters that will zap you of energy in a big way. This is a serious matter that you have to dealt with, because this might affect the good luck brought about by the harmony of the “Basket of Elements” of the Rabbit, with the “Basket of Elements” of the year. One best way to deal with this is to wear or carry with you the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET. Simply having this with you will help in tremendous way.

Another cause for concern is that the Rabbit is also afflicted with the Yin Jia Star. What this star does is that it increases Yin energy of the Rabbit, and it magnifies the Yin or negative energies that arises from your situation. Thus, it may bring bad luck. Deal with this star simply by having the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO. The auspicious Piyao made from empowered gold will definitely be able to “eat” away the negative energies, and add on protection through the gold that is empowered with mantras, sutras, and pujas performed by Bhiksus, Bhiksunis, and High Lamas like Guru Lama.

Because of your strong Life Chi coupled with strong Spiritual Chi and Inner Chi, the Rabbit need not worry about their health condition this year. They will be able to avoid major health issues. However, the 7 and 70 years old Rabbit may find themselves getting involve in an accident that may lead to a long-term illness. They should protect themselves from it by wearing the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET or an image of MEDICINE BUDDHA  worn as a pendant.

The Rabbit’s strong inner chi, life chi, and spiritual chi will be their greatest ally in making money. But remember that wealth luck is really weak if not non-existent this year, thus it is important that you create wealth opportunity for yourself by wearing the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET, similarly having the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO, will also definitely help bring wealth in so that your hard work won’t go to waste. The 31 and 55-year-old, especially the 55, will really need to boost their wealth luck with the combined powers of the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.


 

DRAGON

DRAGON chinese zodiac

General Traits: Intelligent, full of energy, witty, quixotic, artistic, enthusiastic, inventive and original in thought, enigmatic, perfectionist, humourous, headstrong, generous, egostical, aristocratic, over-demanding, prone to worry, quick-tempered.

The very important thing that a person born under the sign of the Dragon should realize is that amongst the 12 Chinese Animal Zodiac signs it is only the Dragon and the Snake that has direct wealth luck / financial luck / money luck that they got from the Flying Stars. The #8 Flying Star, which is the Wealth Star and is considered to be one of the most auspicious star in the Flying Star in the Flying Stars formula directly affects the people born under the sign of the Dragon and the Snake. While this star needs to be activated because there is no wealth luck in the Bazi Chart, the Dragon will have to remember that they are already one step, maybe even several steps ahead when it comes to wealth enhancing factors.

Furthermore, the Dragon should also always remember that the Big Auspiciousness Star also flies into its sector. This is also extremely auspicious because this brings in blessings of success, fulfillment, and wealth.

You have to remember these two because it will take a lot of wisdom and strategic ideas to help the Dragon go through the 2018 Year of Earth Dog. And why is this? Because the ruling animal sign of the year which is the Dog is in direct conflict of the Dragon.

Spiritual Chi and Inner Chi are low and when I say low, I mean they are really low. This will greatly affect your chances of attaining success, be it wealth success, personal or career success! Hard work, determination, and faith in the higher being will definitely be your ‘allies’ this year! These are the things that will definitely help propel you to survive the year. However, determination and faith are affected by inner chi and spiritual chi respectively.

Your very low spiritual chi will leave you susceptible to evil intentions, whether intentional or not. It will also make you disheartened easily. Furthermore, it will make you also more susceptible to negative energies, or Yin energies around you. To counter this, I strongly recommend that you wear a gold image of EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA pendant. Bodhisattva Earth Store is also known as Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa. The weak inner chi will make you easily lose interest or give up on projects or business dealings, and so it is important to address that concern also by wearing the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET!

I would like to share a good thing though. The Dragon’s Life Chi is also good. It will give you the focus and vitality to overcome the yin energies coming from failed progress of projects caused by other people. And also, simply having the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET will definitely give you the bolster that you need to sustain a strong life chi, to help supplement the weak spiritual chi and inner chi. Furthermore, wearing a BODHI LEAF DZI BEAD tied with a RUTILATED QUARTZ bracelet will help bolster the said strong life chi. You will need to bolster it or energize it because you don’t want it getting depleted because of your weak spiritual chi and inner chi.

As mentioned above, the Dragon has to always remember that they have the #8 Flying Star or the Wealth Star. While this star is still dependent on the general wealth luck of the year base on the Bazi Chart, it has to be mentioned that it is only the Dragon and Snake who has this star. And it is quite easy to strengthen and focus the energy of this star to affect the Dragon. You do this simply by wearing the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET and/or the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO.

The other good thing is that the Dragon also has the Big Auspiciousness Star of the 24 Mountain Stars. This star brings in success and wealth amongst other auspicious blessings. One should activate this star by wearing the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO. But for the Dragon it will help if you can have an image of MAITREYA BUHDDA or HAPPY FAT BUDDHA made of gold empowered with special prayers. This will help bolster that Big Auspiciousness Star, and you really need to energize it to compensate for the other weaknesses.

You are also afflicted with the Tai Suey (Tai Sui, Grand Duke Jupiter) of the year. Maybe you are in direct confrontation position with Tai Suey, and you are also in direct hostile position with the ruling Chinese animal zodiac of the year, and these will bring obstacles, stress, hindrances to your endeavors. The good news is simply wearing a Piyao will help appease the Tai Sui. And so, get a Piyao or better yet get the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO so that it helps bring in other good things also aside from simply appeasing the Tai Suey.

As a foot note to the low spiritual energy, you should remember that going to a temple (lighting some incense) or if you’re a Christian simply going to church and/or praying the rosary or reading the Bible should help strengthen your spiritual chi.

Physical health may be average for the Dragon; however, mental and emotional health are of a concerned. All affected but this is especially true for the 30, 42, and 90-year-old Dragons. You will have to be alert in the first sign of illness and make sure you take a lot of rest. Wearing the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET should help a lot. Likewise chanting the MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA should also help.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

NOTE: THIS IS THE OLD ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET. THE NEW ONE IS MADE OF METAL. SHOWING THIS PHOTO SO YOU BASICALLY HAVE AN IDEA WHAT’S INSIDE. 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.

As mentioned again, remember that the key to making money is to remember that you have the Wealth Star and the Big Auspiciousness Star and that having the recommended amulets will certainly help you to tap into the power of these stars. One of the frustration here is that the Dragon has the wealth luck, but it might be difficult to tap into it. So aside from having the recommended amulets, you can also chant mantras of WEALTH GOD OR DEITIES.


 

SNAKE

SNAKE chinese zodiac

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

There are only two Chinese animal zodiac signs this year that is directly affected by wealth luck or money luck or financial luck, and that is the Dragon and the Snake. Wealth luck usually comes from the Bazi Chart of the year and its relationship to the “Basket of Elements” of the sign and the Flying Stars Formula and 24 Mountain Stars Formula. However, this year because there is no wealth luck to be found in the Paht Chee Chart / Bazi Chart of the year, and no direct wealth luck to be found in the 24 Mountain Stars, aside from the indirect wealth from the Big Auspiciousness Star, the only wealth luck will come from the Flying Stars. This however is also slightly dependent to the year’s “Basket of Elements” and so activating this star should be really important.

Furthermore, the Snake also has the Heaven’s Seal Star, which is another star one really wants to have. The Heaven’s Seal also helps provide the Snake the capabilities to cope with the energy of the year. Because of the Heaven Seal, people born under the year of the Snake will have the most power to reign over their destinies, which is absent from the other animal zodiac.

On top of that, the Snake’s Inner Chi is also quite strong and so it provides it the power to reach success in the Snake’s endeavor. Spirit Chi and Life Chi are quite mediocre, and so it is best to wear a gold pendant image of BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA (Earth Store Bodhisattva / Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa) so that it doesn’t get any lower which may affect your over-all success. Furthermore, you should also address the mediocre life chi by wearing or carrying with you the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET.

EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA PENDANT

The Earth Store Bodhisattva Pendant should be in gold or platinum. Bodhisattva Earth Store is also known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa.

As mentioned, the Snake is one of the only 2 animal zodiacs that has direct wealth luck by virtue of the #8 Flying Star which is better known as the Wealth Star. The Snake has better luck than the Dragon in tapping into these energies of the Wealth Star, however, as mentioned this star is somewhat dependent on the wealth luck provided in “Basket of Elements”, so for one to be able to tap into this luck and activate its wealth, it is extremely advisable for one to wear the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and/or the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.

 

The Heaven’s Seal will also support give the Snake the support that it needs to fulfill all his endeavors. This is an auspicious star to have. And to make this work, it will help if one wears an image of BODHISTTVA EARTH STORE or BODHISATTVA AVALOKITESVARA (also known as Kuan Yin, Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kannon, Bodhisattva of Compassion, Goddess of Mercy) in gold pendant.

However, there are two possible worries that the Snake has to contend with. This is the Annual Conflict and the facing of the Three Killings. It is easy to deal with Three Killings, as long as you keep active you are already deflecting its negative effect which may cause three kinds of losses. But the Annual Conflict has to be dealt with. For the Snake, it will be beneficial to have the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET. Having this amulet will protect you from the ill effects of this star which may cause some hindrance in your success.

Health wise the Snake should not be bothered about possible illness. That is generally speaking, however, the 29, 41, and 89 years old should try to take care of themselves and ensure that they have enough sleep. Whatever will strike them may be due to weakening of their immune system and maybe because of them abusing their bodies. It is advisable for them to have the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET so that they can be protected from an illness that may hinder their success.


 

HORSE

Horse chinese zodiac

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

Most people born in the year of the Horse had a rough year in 2017. 2018 Year of the Earth Dog will prove to be a little better, but I cannot say that it will be a perfect year or a totally good year. So, to speak, they might have seen the light at the end of the tunnel but that will still have to navigate a slightly bumpy road ahead before they reach the end of the tunnel.

The chart shows that with hard work and determination the year may prove to be a career or professionally satisfying for a person born under the sign of the Horse.

This year will be a year where a Horse will determine what he/she really wants to achieve and have, although money luck like anybody else will be something that a Horse should really work hard for. The Horse’s Spirit Chi and Life Chi are average. It is neither strong nor weak, and they should try to work on it so that it can be their tool to achieve greater heights. To further strengthen their spiritual chi, it will be good to wear a gold pendant image of EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA (also known as Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa or Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha). For the life chi, a Horse should carry or wear the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO.  It is important that a Horse should not give in to negativity or yin energies, sometimes it may prove to be difficult but they should always look at the positive. And as I always tell my readers who consult me, staying positive is always the first line of defense.

One of the major concern is the very weak inner chi of the Horse. Having a weak inner chi will make success elusive because of your own sentiments. So it is important that when you a big goal, come up with smaller goals to achieve it, then focus on each of the smaller goals first until you hit the big goal. It is also important to strengthen your inner chi, and you can do this simply be carrying or wearing the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET.

Since the Dog is the Dog’s zodiac friend or ally, it will be a good for the horse to tap into the power of the Dog this year. You do this simply by carrying with you an image of a DOG. This can be a pendant, or as simple as a nice keychain.

dog key chain

In looking for a dog key chain look for something that has a happy and friendly image.

One good news is that the #4 Flying Star, also known as the Romantic and Scholastic Star flies into the sector of the Horse. This means that the Horse will do good in work or projects that involve a lot of research or “studying”.

The #4 Star also brings love to the Horse, this means that single Horses who are looking for love might find romantic love this year. Married or attached Horse will find that their love is blooming. However, this is a star that may also bring in a third party into the relationship, so it is best that you safeguard yourself. For married couple, you can tie an AMETHYST GEODE WITH A RED STRING at the foot of your bed. Or you can wear the DOUBLE HAPPINESS SYMBOL in gold. For single who wants to further enhanced this luck you can find a PAIR OF MANDARIN DUCKS and carry with you the SURANGAMA MANTRA AMULET.

 

This star also gives the Horse a charming aura, so networking for your business or work will definitely good this year.

However, there is a bit of bad news. The Horse is afflicted with the Wu Duo Star of the 24 Mountain Stars. This is a star that brings misfortune and is definitely a big stumbling block for the Horse’s endeavors. Furthermore, this is almost like the #7 Violent Star of the Flying Stars, and thus one needs to protect oneself from this star. It can cause failure, and thus is it best to protect oneself from this star by carrying or wearing the VAJRAPANI RUEL. Better if this is combined with a gold or jade pendant of BODHISATTVA KUAN YIN (also known as Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kannon, Avalokitesvara, Goddess of Mercy, Bodhisattva of Compassion). Carrying a VICTORY BANNER will also help.

Technically speaking you are also facing the Three Killings, which can bring three kinds of misfortune. However, an active Horse will already have dealt with this simply being active. But you can also carry with you the THREE CELESTIAL GUARDIANS.

The Horse will have to be careful about their health, especially since as mentioned they may be prone to stress. This is especially true to the 16, 28, 52, 76, and 88 years old Horses. The only ones not so affected are the 40 and 64 years old Horse. However, it will still be good for all Horses to carry or wear the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET.

Considering that wealth luck is elusive this year, the Horse will have an average wealth opportunities if they aptly work hard and put on wealth enhancing amulet like the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and/or the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.


 

SHEEP

sheep chinese zodiac

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

Despite of the fact that the “Basket of Elements” is not in total harmony with the “Basket of Elements” of the year, a Sheep can still have a prosperous and fulfilling 2018. This is a year where major changes for the betterment of a Horse’s life may happen.

The Sheep’s Inner Chi is quite strong and this should prove to be a successful year for a Sheep who will work hard to achieve its goal. Having the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET should further this luck thus giving you a great advantage.

Spirit Chi of the Sheep is of a concern because this may cause waning of your enthusiasm and may cause psycho – emotional concerns. It is best to protect yourself by wearing an image of Bodhisattva made of gold. I highly recommend the EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA or the BODHISATTVA KUAN YIN.

 

Life Chi is good thus it will provide the energy you need to course through the year.

One of the best news is that the Sheep has the #6 Flying Star also known as the Heaven’s Blessing and Mentor Star! This is a very auspicious star to have because it brings in huge amount of blessings from the heaven and more that it brings in the mentor star. This means that the Sheep will always have support of superiors and there will always somebody to guide them. It is extremely good to further activate this star by inviting an image of a BUDDHA, BODHISATTVA, or a DEITY to signify that you honor them and also signify a focused energy on you. I strongly recommend that you get one or two of any of the following Buddhas or Bodhisattvas: SAKYAMUNI BUDDHA (also spelled as Shakyamuni), MEDICINE BUDDHA, KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA, KUAN YIN BODHISATTVA, GODDESS TARA.Goddess Tara

You also have the Yi Duo Star!!!! This means all the good things may be multiplied. And if you want to activate this star with a focus or having better wealth luck so that money will come in, I strongly recommend that you get either the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO or the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET. Wearing a PRAYER WHEEL will also fill you with auspicious blessings!

You are facing the Three Killings which may bring three kinds of misfortune. However, an active Sheep will already have dealt with the negative effects of the Three Killings. But if you want to get a cure, I suggest that you carry with you at all times the THREE CELESTIAL GUARDIANS!

Health luck should be good because of the #6 Flying Star where the Heavenly Beings and the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas will protect you. But the 27, 75, and 87 years old should take an extra care of their health. Wearing the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET should be enough to protect you.


 

MONKEY

monkey chinese zodiac

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

It is going to be a good year for people born under the sign of the Monkey!!! The Monkey enjoys an auspicious and harmonious energy this year. Their strong Spirit Chi and Life Chi can help propel them to great heights. This year, a Monkey should follow their instinct and they will also enjoy some sort of mental clarity that will help them move forward this year.

The success that a Monkey will achieve this year is largely because of hard work and determination plus being focus on what they want. As mentioned, a great spirit chi and life chi are two things from within that will ensure their success. Inner Chi might be a little low but either the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO or the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET should be enough to address this concern of the Monkey.

As if it’s not enough good news. The Monkey, like the Sheep, also enjoys the #6 Flying Star, which is the Heaven’s Blessings and Mentor Star! This is a very auspicious star to have. Great opportunities and blessings from the Heaven awaits the Monkey. While money luck is bad for everybody, the Monkey can tap into the power of this star to attain some wealth luck. They can do this simply by having the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and an image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE in gold.

The #6 Flying Stars also brings in the Mentor Luck; thus, the Monkey will enjoy the support of their superiors. They will also constantly find a person who can help them.

Another great news is that they have Golden Deity star, this is a star that brings wealth from the Heavens and it also brings in blessing and support from the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Deities, and Taoist Gods. Activate this star by inviting an image of a deity in gold. I strongly suggest any one of the following: SAKYAMUNI BUDDHA, AMITABHA BUDDHA, MEDICINE BUDDHA, KUAN YIN BODHISATTVA, EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA, GODDESS TARA, MAITREYA BODHISATTVA.

 

The only cause of concern is that the Monkey is flank by two negative stars from the 24 Mountain Stars. These are the Annual Conflict Star and the Yin Jia Xing. These two stars combined can cause a lot of serious havoc that may lead to loss of wealth, grave illness or accidents and even death! It is best to suppress the effects of these stars, and one can do this by wearing the VAJRAPANI RUEL and/or a gold KALACHAKRA pendant.

Wealth luck is better than most of the animal zodiac, but this has to be activated with the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET or the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO!

Health luck is generally good for most Monkeys.


 

ROOSTER

Rooseter chinese zodiac

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

If we are to base everything on the harmony of the Rooster’s “Basket of Elements” with that of the year’s “Basket of Elements”, then we can say that this year is going to be simply superb and wonderful for people born under the sign of the Rooster. Spiritual Chi, Life Chi, and Inner Chi are all strong and not to mention, I repeat the Bazi Chart of the Rooster and of the year are in sync.

Personal luck, career luck and relationship luck looks really positive, and thus the year is for the Rooster to take. You will need to magnify your spiritual chi, inner chi and life chi because these are the only tools you have to take on the year. And unfortunately, the Flying Stars and the 24 Mountain Stars both brings in some very negative stars, and thus bolstering the luck you get from good spiritual chi, inner chi, and life chi is a must. Not to mention the harmonious relationship of the “Basket of Elements” of the Rooster and that of the year’s should be taken advantage of.

To bolsters these good energies, I strongly recommend that people born under the sign of the Rooster wears a gold pendant of the image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE, FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET, and the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO.

The Rooster is afflicted with the #2 Flying Star, which is also known as the Illness Star. The Illness Star causes different kinds of disease or weaknesses, but more than that it causes accidents also that may become an illness, that may affect the outcome of your luck.

I remember that a person consulted me before because he was really having a lot of luck that year. Projects come in one after another, but he failed to contend with the Illness Star, which afflicts him that year, and so while good things are coming in, it was hindered when he had an accident that cause him to be bedridden and unable to walk for a little more than a month. And so this star has to be dealt with. You can do this by wearing the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET or by wearing a gold pendant of the image of MEDICINE BUDDHA. Likewise, chanting the MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA and the WHITE UMBRELLA GODDESS MANTRA should help avert the negative effects of the said star.

Medicine Buddha Mantra: TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA

White Umbrella Goddess Mantra: TADYATHA OM ANALE ANALE KHASAME KHASAME BHAYRE BHAYRE SAUMA SAUME SARVA BUDDHA ADISHTHANA ADISHTITE SOHA OM SARVA TATHAGATHA USHINISHA SITATAPUTRA HUM PHAT HUM MAMA HUM NE SOHA

Another thing negative thing that a Rooster has to contend with are the two Annual Conflict Stars and the Reducing Energy Star!

The said stars can create major problems that will disrupt the good flow of energy and will disrupt your peace of mind. So if you’re a Rooster, like the Ox, you should remember to try to keep cool and maintain your own peace of mind. Remember that you have the power to control your emotions and thoughts. Furthermore, the Reducing Energy Star will further make the Rooster, who is already afflicted with the Illness Star to become weaker and/or to become more susceptible to infections and even accidents. The ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULETS and the CHANTING OF MANTRAS OF MEDICINE BUDDHA and/or WHITE UMBRELLA GODDESS is enough to handle the concern brought about by the Reducing Energy Star. However, for the two Annual Conflict Stars, it is best to carry with you a VAJRAPANI RUEL and a gold KALACHAKRA pendant.

Wealth luck should be good if the Rooster will overcome all the negative stars brought about by the Flying Stars and 24 Mountain Stars. However, this has to be activated and so I highly recommend the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and/or the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.


 

DOG

DOG

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

The Dog enjoys some very good stars both from the Flying Stars and the 24 Mountain Stars, and these stars should help the Dog in achieving its wish for the year. However, as early as now, I would like to clarify already that wealth luck is not at its best for the Dog. While this may be true for everybody, this is more significant for people born under the sign of the Dog. So it is better if a person born under the sign of the Dog will focus more on personal success or professional success that is not financial or money-centric.

A Dog should realize that they have the support of the Tai Sui (Tai Suey or Grand Duke of Jupiter) God of the year, and this should also provide an added boost. However, the Tai Suey should always be appeased, and thus they should wear a Piyao, better if they wear the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO because of their weak wealth luck. So, they can sort of hit two birds in one stone.

They should also take advantage of a special luck brought about by their Paht Chee Chart or Bazi Chart, and I’m talking about Noble Aristocrat Star. This is a star that seldom appears but can prove to be an auspicious one. To put plainly, it is a star that is similar to the Mentor’s Star of the Flying Stars, however this is more focus in bringing wealth. What this star does is that it brings you people who can mentor you or lead you in wealth generating ideas. To activate this star, it is extremely good to have the VAJRAPANI RUEL or an image of KUAN KONG (also spelled or called as Guan Gong, Kuan Yu, Guan Yu, Kuan Teh Ya, Guan Teh Ya, Teh Ya Kong, Sangharama Bodhisattva, Bodhisattva Sangharama, Qie Lan Pu Sa).

The “Basket of Elements” of the Dog as an animal zodiac sign, is not in sync with that of the year’s “Basket of Elements”! You might be wondering and say that this is lunar year of the Earth Dog, how come it is not in sync? The truth is, and I have written about this in the past, is that if the year’s animal sign is also the same of that of your animal sign doesn’t mean that you are lucky, in fact, it is mostly the contrary. This is because too much of the same thing will repel each other, and this is what happened with the Dog or with any signs for the other years. The only saving grace for the Dog is the good stars from the Flying Stars and the 24 Mountain Stars.

The sole driving force of the Dog for the year is their strong life chi. This is the only thing base from their bazi that will sustain them. And as you know if you kept on running on a single source that thing will be depleted, it’s the same with chi, and so it is better to sustain this by amplifying it with the use of the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET.

The Spirit Chi and Inner Chi of the Dog are really weak. A weak spirit chi will make a person more susceptible to yin energies, and it will make you more prone to unseen entities. This can also pull you down from achieving your full potential for the year, thus it is extremely advisable to wear an image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE as a gold pendant. Weak inner chi can also take a blow on your perseverance, confidence and determination, this may sound petty but sometimes these are the only things that can drive us to finish something and this year this is more important than ever. So, it is better to strengthen your inner chi, and for the Dog, I would strongly recommend having the SURANGAMA MANTRA AMULET.

 

The wonderful news is that the Dog has the #1 Flying Star, which is also known as the Victory Star. This is a star that brings in auspicious luck and fortune. Having this star will let you triumph over things that can pull you down. Sometimes, being victorious can also bring wealth luck, and this year all wealth luck / financial luck / money luck are indirect and you have to search for it. Being victorious will certainly open doors for wealth luck and you will strongly need all opportunities because as mentioned wealth luck of people born under the sign of the Dog are weak, weaker than most of the signs, except maybe that of the Rat. And so, having the VAJRAPANI RUEL, which also enjoys a lot of miraculous personal testimonies that involves financial luck is highly recommended.

Vajrapani Ruel

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

The 24 Mountain Stars brings in the Small Auspiciousness Star to the Dog, and while this brings small luck, in the long run this could prove to be really helpful, especially if you can really make it active by constantly giving you small lucks all the time. You can further bolster the effects of this star by having the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO, and since the Piyao will also appease the Tai Sui God of the year, you are already addressing two things in one cure or amulet.

The bad news is that the 24 Mountain Stars also brings in the Annual Conflict Star, and this should be addressed and dealt with right away because for some to reason the one that afflicts the Dog is quite strong. And having a weal spirit chi will definitely expound its effect. For this I strongly recommend that you protect yourself with a gold pendant image of BODHISATTVA KUAN YIN (also known or spelled as Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Kannon, Avalokitesvara, Chenrezig, Goddess of Mercy, Bodhisattva of Compassion) or with the FOUR DHARMAKAY RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET!

The weak spirit chi and inner chi together with the unfavorable and disharmonious relationship of the “Basket of Elements” and because of the side affliction of the #2 Illness Star, the Dog’s health is not exactly at its best this 2018. Caution is advised to all ages and they would all need to arm themselves with the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET. However, it is the 12, 60, and 72 years old Dogs that are most in danger. I strongly recommend that they as well as the other age group arm themselves with the RECITATION OF THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA (download The-Sutra-On-The-Original-Vows-And-Merits-Of-The-Medicine-Master-Lapis-Lazuli-Light-Tathagata) and with CHANTING THE MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA!

Medicine Buddha Mantra: TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA!

Illness Suppression Amulet3

NOTE: THIS IS THE OLD ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET. THE NEW ONE IS MADE OF METAL. SHOWING THIS PHOTO SO YOU BASICALLY HAVE AN IDEA WHAT’S INSIDE. 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.

Lastly, as mentioned, I just would like to reiterate that wealth luck is quite bad for the Dog. But follow the advice above and if possible wear the VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET and the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO and CHANT THE MANTRAS OF THE WEATH DEITIES should really make things better.

Vaisravana Dzambhala Wealth Amulet

The Vaisavana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet has the consecrated copies of the mantras of King Vaisravana of the Four Heavenly Kings and the mantras of the Five Dzambhalas. Furthermore, there are some special ingredients in powder form that are included to add to the potency of the amulet. Before it is sealed it is furthered consecrated on the image of The Four Heavenly Kings.It is placed in a metal case, not just for its durability and protection but according to the Tantric Buddhist Scripture book where Guru Lama got the instructions for this amulet, it has to be placed in cylindrical metal case to symbolize continuity and stability.


 

PIG/BOAR

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

Like the Dog, the Pig’s “Basket of Elements” is not also in sync with year’s “Basket of Elements”. But if there’s something that should be told to people born under the sign of the Pig is that they should be mindful of their attitude. That would be the respectful of saying it, but I will be blunt here, they should not have any negative boastful attitude.

Success will be within reach for the Pig, and they might find themselves successful in any of their undertakings, thus they have to watch out for having some attitude. They should also realize who are really there for them and not assume things. For they might ostracized somebody who is silently helping them just because they didn’t see what they want to see or hear what they want to hear.

The Pig’s Spirit Chi and Life Chi are weak. Weak spirit chi might make the Pig more susceptible to yin energies, thus they should protect themselves with a gold pendant image of BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE!

EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA PENDANT

The Earth Store Bodhisattva Pendant should be in gold or platinum. Bodhisattva Earth Store is also known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa.

A weak life chi will diminish the drive and energy of Pig and thus will prevent you from getting the success that is presented to you by your bazi. To protect yourself from this I strongly recommend, for the Pig, the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET.

The Pig fortunately has the #1 Flying Star, which is also known as the Victory Star! This star would make a Pig be victorious in its endeavors, sometimes this can pave the way to wealth luck. To further enhanced this star, it will be very good for people born under the sign of the Pig to carry the VAJRAPANI RUEL or have the VICTORY BANNER with them.

The Pig also have the Small Auspiciousness Star, albeit this is weaker for the Pig than that of the Dog. This star also brings in a lot of small luck that may spell a lot of difference this year. If you want to make this star constantly active and help chase good luck for you especially wealth luck, then it is extremely a good idea to have the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO.

However, the bad news is that the Pig is also afflicted with the Robbery Star. Aside from the implication as robbery, this could also mean wealth loss through theft or betrayal of trust. Furthermore, it can also mean people stealing your ideas or stealing your recognition. It is best to protect yourself from this by having the gold KALACHAKRA PENDANT or the VAJRAPANI RUEL.

Because of the disharmonious relationships of the “Basket of Elements” of the year and that of the Pig, the Pig will really have to take care of their health. Depression and/or other psycho – emotional conditions is the thing that may affect the Pig this year. Thus it is best to wear the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

NOTE: THIS IS THE OLD ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET. THE NEW ONE IS MADE OF METAL. SHOWING THIS PHOTO SO YOU BASICALLY HAVE AN IDEA WHAT’S INSIDE. 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.

As mentioned, wealth luck for everybody or for all the signs this year is quite weak. The same is true for the Pig, although the Small Auspiciousness Star, the Victory Star and strong inner chi will strengthen the chances of the Pig to have some wealth luck if they are able to create it. The best wealth luck amulet for the all the Pig is the VASIRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.


 

PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU CANNOT GET ALL THE RECOMMENDED AMULETS, GET AT LEAST THE HOLY TRINITY OF AMULETS FOR THE YEAR. THEY ARE THE GOLD PENDANT IMAGE OF BODHISATTVA EARTH STORE; FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET; AND SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO OR THE VAISRAVANA-DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET.

Note: The Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras and Lama Atisha Combined Amulet has not arrived yet.

Understanding the Special Gold Piyao: Your Questions Answered!

Published Nobyembre 9, 2017 by jptan2012

Today, I will continue to answer a few of the most common questions sent to me via email, sms or through voice call. Yesterday, or the preceding post was about answering the questions regarding the forecast and how to be protected. In it I talked about the Special Gold Piyao, but there are a several of you asking more about the Special Gold Piyao, and wanting to avoid confusion I decided to write about it separately.

  1. What is a Piyao?

I initially thought that I have given a good introduction of what is a Piyao (also spelled or called as Pi Yao, Pixie, Pi Xie, Pixiu, Pi Xiu), but not wanting to bore you with a long post, I might have shortened it to the point that it is not clear what a Pi Yao is.

A Piyao or Pixiu is a celestial being or celestial animal. Celestial is described as (adjective) (1) pertaining to the sky or visible heaven, or the universe beyond the earth’s atmosphere; (2) pertaining to the spiritual or invisible heaven; (noun) (3) an inhabitant of heaven. Taking this description, it means that a Piyao is a being or animal of the heavens or simply put a Heavenly Being or Heavenly Animal. Some people will say that a Piyao or Pixie is the Chimera, but according to Guru Lama this is not so. A Piyao is a celestial being that reside in the heavens. I cannot go into detail about this, because it is a topic worthy of an entire post, but in Buddhism, heaven is a plane of existence. In Christianity or even Taoism, Heaven is the ultimate goal of destination; it is the highest level of existence. This is not the case in Buddhism; Heaven is a plane or existence higher than Earth but definitely lower than achieving Bodhisattva or even being a Buddha. Anyway, a Piyao is a Celestial Animal that provides protection and is said to be good wealth accumulator or collector. This Celestial Animal, the Piyao, is more prominent in Taoist scriptures, for it is said that it was the Jade Emperor (the highest god in Taoism, but is only a high heavenly being in Buddhism) that instructed the Piyao to eat only Gold and Silver or precious metals. While it enjoys a prominent relevance in Taoism, it is still definitely mentioned in some Sutra, especially those that can be more esoteric like the “The Surangama Sutra”. In fact, you can see a Piyao in most Taoist and Buddhist temples especially Pure Land Buddhist Temples.

 

  1. So what does a Piyao really do?

Allow me to enumerate some of the things that a Piyao can do.

  • A Piyao is a celestial being or celestial animal that has a big mouth but it has no anus. Which means it only eats but it doesn’t ‘throw’ away anything, thus making it a good wealth accumulator or collector. This is also especially good for people who seem to earn a lot of money but find it difficult to save money.
  • Some people think that a Piyao is a dragon or has a dragonhead. Again this is wrong, a Piyao is a Piyao and technically Piyao has a fierce face because in Buddhism and Taoism, fierce connotes protection and aggressiveness. In fact, most wealth Gods or even wealth Bodhisattvas has a fierce looking face. For example, the five Dzambhalas (also spelled as Dzambalas, Zambhala, Zambala, Jambhala, Jambala), Bodhisattva Vajrapani, to name a few.
  • Piyaos has sharp teeth. Because they symbolically and esoterically use these teeth to bite of demons, and or negative energies. I know of people who always wakes up at around 3 in the morning. After wearing Piyao they just slept thru the night,
  • In the texts that mentions the Piyao, it is also said that Piyaos are bringers of good health.
  • Furthermore, as mentioned they are good protectors. In fact, there are a lot of people who escapes accidents unscathed only to find out that their jade Piyaos have broken into two or more pieces.

 

  1. Is there only one kind of a Piyao?

A Piyao is a Piyao so technically speaking yes; there is only one kind. However, it is better to get a Piyao with an active stance rather than that of a relax one, because experience shows that this symbolic difference does have an effect on how your image of Piyao works for you. Different Taoist and Buddhist scriptures also talked about the different ‘permutations’ of a Piyao and how this represents different aspects of our life and how it affects it.

 

  1. Guru Lama designed the Special Gold Piyao, so did he invent it?

The Special Gold Piyao was designed by Guru Lama base on some old Buddhist texts, and so he did not invent it. However, he did incorporate two different designs and molded them into one Piyao. He did this after performing an oracle to see if this can be done.

 

  1. So why is it called Special Gold Piyao?

Again, technically speaking, it is a Piyao, but I decided to call it Special Gold Piyao, because it is indeed a specially designed. Although copycats who have the means will surely copy the design, like what they usually do with the Feng Shui charms or amulets of Lillian Too. Each and every aspect of the design was well thought off and is base on old Buddhist scriptures. In fact, the harness is not a common feature, but is something that was incorporated by Guru Lama. Also, I would like to clarify (although I have not written about this to avoid confusion and making the communication so cluttered) that there are actually two designs made by Guru Lama. One is that I have already featured, and the other one has a slight variation. Instead of only coins at the bottom of the Piyao, are magical words that connote protection, abundance, luck, health, etc. What design one gets will depend on what one needs.

Piyao2d2

Instead of only coins at the bottom of the Piyao, there are magical words that connote protection, abundance, luck, health, etc. What design one gets will depend on what one needs.So if you are a person who really need to attract money only or is in a bad financial situation, you will get the one with only the Heavenly Money Coin. However, if you already have abundance of wealth and needs only to safe guard it, or if you also need protection, and good health, and abundance in other aspect of your life, what you will get are those that have the magical inscriptions that will further bring all these aspects to your life. It is Guru Lama who determines this, thus we will request for your birthdate when you request for a Special Gold Piyao.

So if you are a person who really need to attract money only or is in a bad financial situation, you will get the one with only the Heavenly Money Coin. However, if you already have abundance of wealth and needs only to safe guard it, or if you also need protection, and good health, and abundance in other aspect of your life, what you will get are those that have the magical inscriptions that will further bring all these aspects to your life. It is Guru Lama who determines this, thus we will request for your birthdate when you request for a Special Gold Piyao.

Piyao2d3

Other than the magic inscriptions at the bottom both designs are basically the same. Please note that the photo of the Piyao is base on a close – up shot. The Piyao is less than an inch long.

Also, as mentioned in my previous post, Guru Lama designed these Piyaos as usual with a fierce face, however, he has also made in gentle or friendly, so it was quite a challenge to ensure that it comes out the way want it to be – FIERCE YET FRIENDLY. This is one very important factor that makes it unique and special. Because the energies of the year will be quite hostile in terms of moneymaking capacity, and even if were not hostile, you still want enough aggressiveness and power to be able to get that career or business goal and that wealth luck that you want, but at the same time you don’t want to appear very fierce that people will hate you and you will lose support or live/work in a unfriendly and hostile surrounding, thus it has to connote friendliness also for you to continue to have support and that no hostilities and envious eyes will be thrown against you. This is very important for Guru Lama that you don’t just get wealth luck or financial luck or money luck and feed on hostilities but that you get them in a friendly competitive and harmonious way.

You can read about the other features on my previous post.

  1. So it is the design that makes it Special?

At this point, I would like to clarify that the best Piyaos are those that are made of real jade and gold. This is base on the experience of Feng Shui experts, Taoist priests, and some Buddhist lamas.

But what makes this particular Piyao really special aside from the unique well thought off design that will address several concern, is that the metal use here is 24k pure gold coming from the ‘treasury’ of the temple. These are gold that were ‘donated’ to the temple as a way of an offering. These gold (which comes from either a jewelry or sometimes even miniature/small gold bars or gold coins such as those that can be bought in Dubai and China) are then placed in secured container and placed under the foot of an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva, usually images of Sakyamuni Buddha (Shakyamuni Buddha), Amitabha Buddha, Medicine Buddha, Dipankara Buddha (Dipamkara Buddha), Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (Earth Store Bodhisattva, Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa), Bodhisattva Kuan Yin (Kuan Shi Yin, Quan Yin, Quan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon, Chenrezig). They are placed there for years, and while they are there, when the High Lamas like Guru Lama or the Bhiksus or Bhiksunis perform a puja or chant a mantra or recite a sutra, they are blessed by it’s energies. And so the gold made into the Piyao are considered blessed gold.

I would like to add, these are same gold made images of Buddhas or Bodhisattvas, or for gold plating images.

 

  1. What if I’m not able to get the Special Gold Piyao does that mean I cannot have the protection and luck I need?

If you can’t get the Special Gold Piyao, which admittedly might be relatively expensive for some people (because again in exchange of the Piyao you need to make offering of images of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas and food for the monks, etc. as way of exchange of energy, aside from the labor cost in making the intricate design) you can always chant the mantras that I have written in my previous post. Or you can wear the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet. You can also ensure, regardless of your basket of elements in your Bazi Chart (Paht Chee Chart), to wear more metal. Any metal will do, but of course the yang energy of gold metal adds more chi to simply having metal in your body.

Furthermore, you can also get some Piyao. The design might be different but it should also work somehow. If you can’t a gold one you can get a jade Piyao and just wear more metal. But whatever you do, make sure you get one that in a active stance and not a relax stance, it might be a little more difficult to find but the small difference in the stance makes a lot of difference.

I hope I was able to answer your questions about the Special Gold Piyao. I initially was apprehensive to introduce the Special Gold Piyao to my readers because of the delay in the delivery of the last gold item that was released in this blog. I’m talking about the “Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant”. However, I was assured that there are several hundred pieces made already and so technically there is no waiting time. Furthermore, it is rarely that there is special piece with this well thought of ‘design’ that comes out, most Piyaos are that of a relax or resting stance. I personally have been looking for a gold Piyao with a very good design and in a active stance, but since I find it hard, I had to settle for some jade Piyaos, but even that was quite difficult to find, so I when I saw one I acquired several pieces for myself.

A Special Gold Piyao Empowered By A Crystal to Invite Wealth Luck!

Published Nobyembre 7, 2017 by jptan2012

In the preceding post – An Important Peek to the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog: Bleak Financial Forecast and Early Preparation is Key! –  I talked about how the remaining three months (November, December, January) of the 2017 Lunar Year,  is besieged with conflicting energies that it becomes a challenging three months. Furthermore, one will find it hard to harness one’s wealth luck or financial luck in the said last three months. But what is quite disturbing is that the Bazi Chart of 2018 Year of the Earth Dog indicates that the year is devoid of the metal element which for the year represents wealth luck / financial luck / money luck.

This means that the year is going to be financially challenging.

And so Guru Lama has recently released the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET, to help address this concern. But on top of that this year a gold Piyao (also spelled as Pi Yao, Pixie, Pi Xie, Pixiu, Pi Xiu) plays an important role for us to be able to harness wealth luck or financial luck or money luck this year. But if you read thru the post, which a big part has been written in the preceding post, you will see that the Piyao is not just for 2018, it is a Feng Shui charm with Buddhist and Taoist influence (as you will see it a lot in both Buddhist and Taoist temples) and always play an important role in our lives. I personally constantly wear a jade Piyao and makes sure that I have some extras just in case it broke. But this time, I’m upgrading to a gold Piyao and not just any gold Piyao but the Special Gold Piyao designed and released by Guru Lama.

The Piyao is part of the Three Celestial Guardian but on it’s own is a powerful celestial being, when its image is worn or displayed, bestows great merit of protection and wealth!

Guru Lama is releasing a SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO (also spelled as Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu, Pi Xie, Pixie). A Piyao is quite common, but as I always say it is best to get the one with an active stance and not the one lying down or relax stance, this is specially true for 2018 Year of the Earth Dog.

A Piyao or Pixiu or Pi Xie is a celestial animal or being known for its protective qualities when facing the Tai Suey. This celestial animal that is part of the Three Celestial Guardian is a great ‘peace’ offering to the Tai Suey or Grand Duke Jupiter. However, more than just as an offering it is a very powerful wealth accumulator.

As mentioned, the Pi Yao or Pi Xie is a mystical creature that is particularly powerful and auspicious. It is said to have a voracious appetite that is infinite. The interesting part is that the Pi Yao does not have an anus, which means things only go in but never come out. On top of that, the Piyao as directed by the Jade Emperor (who is the highest God in Taoism but is a powerful heavenly being in the Buddhism) is only able to eat gold and silver. It is therefore a favorite must-have for businessmen and merchants who want money to come in and not spill out a dime. It is no wonder that Pi Yao can often be seen in banks, casinos, foreign exchange markets and finance companies in Oriental countries. I mentioned earlier that traditionally, a Piyao is not an animal meant to be worshipped, but, in countries like Thailand and Cambodia, people worship the Pi Yao and offer incense and flowers within business premises. Having said this, if your Piyao is made of natural crystal its okay to light an incense in front of your Piyao not to worship it but to cleanse it from a negative ‘energies’.

Aside from this, the Chinese adore the Pi Yao because of its very protective, obedient and loyal nature. It is believed that the Pi Yao will always try its best to grant its owner’s wishes and protect its owner from injuries. Because of these capabilities, smaller versions of Pi Yao are often worn as amulets. Many stories have been told where victims of car accidents or robbery assaults surprisingly escaped the ordeal unharmed and found out later that the Pi Yao amulets they were wearing or keeping had mysteriously broken into two or damaged. It is said that their Pi Yao had sacrificed themselves to protect their owner. Treat your Pi Yao like it’s a real pet – pat them, rub them – a happy Pi Yao will go the extra mile to grant your wishes.

Note: The Pi Yao, like the Dragon, although highly revered and considered as really powerful, are not meant to be worshipped. The Fu Dogs and Piyaos are usually placed and used as temple, imperial court guardians. However, unlike the Fu Dogs, Pi Yao are also usually placed outside business establishments, banks to act not only as guardians but also as wealth catchers. There are some establishments in China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan that have the Fu Dogs in their gate or outer door and a pair of Pi Yao in the main entrance or in the lobby.

Regular readers of this blog knows that even if the bazi chart of the year doesn’t lack wealth luck, I still firmly believes in the power of the Pi Yao or Pi Xie or Pi Xiu. But on 2018 Year of the Earth Dog and the coming years, starting this last quarter of the 2017 lunar year, the Pi Yao plays an important role for everybody. It is one of the Holy Trinity for the year, the will ultimately play an important role for one’s security in wealth luck / financial luck / money luck.

Note: Pi Yao is also a wonderful symbol to appease the Grand Duke Jupiter or Tai Sui. Depending on your horoscope sign, you might be offending the Grand Duke in a particular year, directly or indirectly. If your horoscope sign is in conflict with the Grand Duke, you will suffer a year of bad luck and obstacles. Those afflicted with Tai Sui should display the Pi Yao where the annual Grand Duke Jupiter resides in your home as well as carry a Pi Yao protection amulet. The person with the Chinese horoscope sign that is in direct conflict with the Grand Duke Jupiter MUST wear a Pi Yao charm either as a pendant or as a bracelet throughout the year of affliction to guard himself or herself from misfortunes. This practice is highly recommended by Feng Shui enthusiasts.

People who personally know me might have seen the jade Pi Yao that I regularly wear on my wrist with my citrine bracelet. However, this year I will upgrade it to the Special Gold Piyao released by Guru Lama.

There are a lot of Piyao in the market, but what makes this special?

This is specially designed by Guru Lama so that it best represents and embody the wealth acquiring abilities and also fight the negative energies of the remaining lunar months of 2017 and also the lack of money making energies of 2018.

This limited Special Gold Piyao has 4 horns that represents the four cardinal directions – East, West, North, and South. This means that one will be able to take by the horn the challenges to gain financial luck. It also has fierce but still friendly face, this indicates that while you can be fierce in business or work, you will still gain the support and admiration of the people around you. This also means that you can you charm to get to your wealth luck.  Furthermore, it is a ‘special harness’ so one can ‘harness’ it’s energy, this is something that is not found in any other Piyao’s or Pi Xie’s. On top of that they designed the said Pi Xie’s with 12 heavenly money coins to represent wealth luck for each of the 12 lunar months. The coins are found on it’s back and also at the bottom part of the image and on his legs, so this represents that it walks on money and is need not ‘search’ for it. On top of the 12 ‘big’ heavenly money coin, it also has another 5 heavenly money coin on each side of the it’s harness. This further represents that the ‘owner’ of the Pi Yao can harness wealth into his or her life. On each side of its hind legs is the symbol for protection. This represents protection from earthly dangers and envious eyes, and also harmony so that one doesn’t get into a rough, hostile situation is one’s quest to simply get more financial luck to provide for one’s family. Also incorporated is the symbol for longevity to constantly provide good health. Lastly, although quite small and not easily visible, the Piyao was designed to have strong sharp teeth, to represent its power to fight off demons and also negative energies that might cause bad luck. There are a lot of Piyaos especially those that are made out of jade or other stones, but this one is specially designed to confront the remaining negative 3 month of the lunar 2017, and the lack of wealth energies of the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog. But on top of that, the gold used in making the said Piyao are gold from the offering of the Sangha members to the temple.

Buddhist would offer money, food, flowers, oil, incense to an image, but a lot of them especially those are in grave situations will also offer gems and gold. It can be a gold necklace, gold bracelet, gold ring, or gold earrings, but it is not surprising to see even real miniature/small gold bars or gold coins (such are those found in Dubai or China). These gold offerings are recorded for proper auditing and put in a special container under the foot of either the image of Sakyamuni Buddha (Sakyamuni Buddha), Medicine Buddha, Amitabha Buddha, Dipankara Buddha (Dipamkara Buddha), Bodhisattva Kuan Yin (also spelled as Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Quan Yin, Quan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon, Chenrezig), Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (Earth Store Bodhisattva / Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa) or Vajrapani Bodhisattva. They are just there for years, and whenever the Bhiksu (Monks) or Bhiksuni (Buddhist nuns) with the higher lamas chant mantras or recite sutras or perform pujas, the said jewelries or gold offerings are blessed as well. Then the once in a while they open one of these containers to melt the gold to make an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or makes gold flakes out of it so that when we invite an amulets, they can ‘sell’ these gold to make said images of Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or plate images under our name. This becomes a way for them to raise funds to make more images or temple or food for the monks especially the student monks and also for their food.

So you see, because they stay under an image for years, and they get the power from the chanting of mantras, reciting of sutras, or pujas from the Bhiksu, Bhiksuni, or the high lamas like Guru Lama, these gold items becomes really blessed. And this is what Guru Lama has used to make the said Special Gold Piyao.

But simply wearing a Piyao or the Special Gold Piyao is not enough. You need to ensure that the element produces metal is constantly present in your life as well. Thus the Special Gold Piyao is strung along with some crystals. However, this is where it becomes personalized because the crystal or semi – precious stone while largely earth element that will harness the growth of metal, should also be dependent on the element that best represents your own wealth luck. So for some it will be citrine, some will be amethyst (like me), some may have jade or aventurine, some may have clear quartz or a moonstone, and some may have lapis lazuli or tourmaline or onyx.

As mentioned the Special Gold Piyao will play an important role and is one of the Holy Trinity must have amulets of the year. However, having this Special Gold Piyao for the rest of your life will also prove to be a powerful tool to continue to harness wealth luck / financial luck / money luck and also serves a great protection charm. Furthermore, if you find yourself confronted by Tai Suey or the Grand Duke Jupiter, it also serves as great ‘offering’.

An Important Peek to the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog: Bleak Financial Forecast and Early Preparation is Key!

Published Nobyembre 6, 2017 by jptan2012

2018Regular readers of this blog will know that I don’t usually write my forecast until January, since lunar new years come in sometime late January or February or early March, but last year I wrote my forecast early because it was necessary, this year will be the same, I will write about the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog Forecast base on the Bazi Chart (Paht Chee Chart), Flying Stars Formula and 24 Mountain Star Formula quite early because 2018 is going to be a little quite challenging in term of money making or financial luck.

However, that forecast will be posted in the next few days, because I want to cross-reference my calculations and analysis with that of my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong and Guru Lama.

But as discussed with Guru Lama that it is important that I give you a ‘peek’ already of one important factor for 2018 because it is important that we must prepare for it.

This year the Bazi Chart is extremely lacking of the metal element. By extremely lacking I mean it’s totally devoid of the said element, and as fate would have it, the metal element this year represents financial luck or wealth luck or money luck. So it is easy to conclude here that moneymaking capabilities doesn’t look hopeful. Financial aspects will be quite challenging.

This is not surprising since all Feng Shui experts or masters has predicted that the last part of 2017 Lunar Year which run between November to January will have a conflicting energy as shown by the 2017 Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart. Financial and Wealth luck is also going to be quite limited already, and this will continue to 2018 as the chart indicates we don’t have the metal element which for 2018 represents wealth luck or financial luck or money luck.

In the past two preceding posts I already have talked about this. But let me reiterate some part more clearly and also add the aspect of the 2018 Paht Chee Chart.

What this means?

This means that earning money might be a little harder, especially those who are in the business. Stocks will not do well as well, and as we can see here in the Philippines, there is already an indication of this since the government itself has announced that there was a 95% decline in foreign investments. The worst we ever had in recent history. To some extent we faired better during the Cory Aquino regime even though it was besieged by numerous coup attempt, because the decline in foreign investment then was not that high. With all humility a 95% decline is not a decline but rather it means foreign investments has become almost non – existent. No country can survive without foreign investments.

To put it into context or proper analogy so that it is easier to understand, it is like a family in a house that is trying to be self – sufficient. Kids will be thought at home, with things that are only found at home, no buying of books outside. The parents will try to earn money from home without outside buyers. Electricity and water are produced at home with no outside help. Food our simply from their own backyard without allowing rain or sunshine to come in to grow the plants, or poultry are raised without buying feeds. Is that possible? Totally possible? One may survive a few months but how can one survive totally being isolated?

Aside from the Philippines, this is already happening, albeit to a lesser degree in countries, namely Malaysia, USA, UK, etc.

Technically everybody is affected, because if business owners are affected employees are definitely affected as well.

Furthermore, you might find yourself put in a situation wherein you will lose money either by spending it or by ‘losing’ it either thru carelessness or bad business deal. This November to 2018, it is best not to lend somebody money.

If there is any consolation, even there is no metal element ergo wealth luck / financial luck / money luck on the bazi chart of the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog, there is however a small sliver of hope that can be found in the hidden stems. Will discuss this further in the main forecast, but what does it mean for us.

It means those who are going into the 2018 Year of the Dog prepared will not suffer or experience this financial drought as much as other would. What preparedness means is being prepared both in practical manner or Feng Shui wise.

Practically speaking, it is best to ensure that your contracts are in place and that your client or business stakeholders won’t be able to rescind from it. This is what I did 2016 when my Feng Shui forecast is really bad; that before 2016 entered I made sure that my business will survive. Of course, this is not the only way to protect your business, if you have established good relationships with people, you will find people giving you leeway and or pushing you to help you maintain good business.

If you are an employee, and if you have been working hard and has been recognized your boss, you will find yourself having some kind of an edge over those who don’t work hard, or those who work hard but doesn’t make themselves recognized by the superiors.

Make sure also you review all business transactions carefully and that you study your investment thoroughly. It will also be good if you will spend your money wisely.

In Feng Shui it is important that you armed yourself with powerful wealth charms like the ingot or three – legged toad. Make sure these charms are made of gold.

3 legged toad pendant

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

Note: If you wish to read more about wealth enhancing charms or cures please read the post –FENG SHUI TIPS TO ENHANCE WEALTH LUCK, FINANCIAL LUCK, AND MONEY LUCK.

It is also important for all of us, regardless of our bazi chart to wear more gold this year, yellow gold is better because we will also need the yang energy it provides. Furthermore, you can wear powerful Buddhist amulets. The following are what I highly recommend:

  1. VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET is a powerful wealth amulet that I recently introduced on this blog. It is an amulet rediscovered by my Guru Lama about 20 years ago and has decided to make because he has foreseen this worldwide financial slump that is about to happen. Furthermore, this amulet is in a metal case, and we all need to have more metal in our body. You can read more about here by clicking on the link below at the end of the article.
  2. VAJRAPANI RUEL is another powerful amulet, perhaps the most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon, although, it is first and foremost a protective amulet rather than a wealth amulet. However, it should be noted that a lot of people who has the Vajrapani Ruel has experienced superb wealth miracle / financial miracle / money miracle. Some almost instantly and some gradually.
  3. WEAR AN IMAGE OF KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA or MAITREYA BUDDHA or MEDICINE BUDDHA made of gold.

Guru Lama is also releasing a SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO (also spelled as Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu, Pi Xie, Pixie). A Piyao is quite common, but as I always say it is best to get the one with an active stance and not the one lying down or relax stance, this is specially true for 2018 Year of the Earth Dog.

Piyao7

This is a special gold Piyao designed by Guru Lama and made of blessed gold.

A Piyao or Pixiu or Pi Xie is a celestial animal known for its protective qualities when facing the Tai Suey. This celestial animal that is part of the Three Celestial Guardian is a great ‘peace’ offering to the Tai Suey or Grand Duke Jupiter. However, more than just as an offering it is a very powerful wealth accumulator.

As mentioned, the Pi Yao or Pi Xie is a mystical creature that is particularly powerful and auspicious. It is said to have a voracious appetite that is infinite. The interesting part is that the Pi Yao does not have an anus, which means things only go in but never come out. On top of that, the Piyao as directed by the Jade Emperor (who is the highest God in Taoism but is a powerful heavenly being in the Buddhism) is only able to eat gold and silver. It is therefore a favorite must-have for businessmen and merchants who want money to come in and not spill out a dime. It is no wonder that Pi Yao can often be seen in banks, casinos, foreign exchange markets and finance companies in Oriental countries. I mentioned earlier that traditionally, a Piyao is not an animal meant to be worshipped, but, in countries like Thailand and Cambodia, people worship the Pi Yao and offer incense and flowers within business premises. Having said this, if your Piyao is made of natural crystal its okay to light an incense in front of your Piyao not to worship it but to cleanse it from a negative ‘energies’.

Regular readers of this blog knows that even if the bazi chart of the year doesn’t lack wealth luck, I still firmly believes in the power of the Pi Yao or Pi Xie or Pi Xiu. But on 2018 Year of the Earth Dog and the coming years, starting this last quarter of the 2017 lunar year, the Pi Yao plays an important role for everybody. It is one of the Holy Trinity for the year, the will ultimately play an important role for one’s security in wealth luck / financial luck / money luck.

People who personally know me might have seen the jade Pi Yao that I regularly wear on my wrist with my citrine bracelet. However, this year I will upgrade it to the Special Gold Piyao released by Guru Lama.

There are a lot of Piyao in the market, but what makes this special?

This is specially designed by Guru Lama so that it best represents and embody the wealth acquiring abilities and also fight the negative energies of the remaining lunar months of 2017 and also the lack of money making energies of 2018.

This limited Special Gold Piyao has 4 horns that represents the four cardinal directions – East, West, North, and South. This means that one will be able to take by the horn the challenges to gain financial luck. It also has fierce but still friendly face, this indicates that while you can be fierce in business or work, you will still gain the support and admiration of the people around you. This also means that you can you charm to get to your wealth luck.  Furthermore, it is a ‘special harness’ so one can ‘harness’ it’s energy, this is something that is not found in any other Piyao’s or Pi Xie’s. On top of that they designed the said Pi Xie’s with 12 heavenly money coins to represent wealth luck for each of the 12 lunar months. The coins are found on it’s back and also at the bottom part of the image and on his legs, so this represents that it walks on money and is need not ‘search’ for it. On top of the 12 ‘big’ heavenly money coin, it also has another 5 heavenly money coin on each side of the it’s harness. This further represents that the ‘owner’ of the Pi Yao can harness wealth into his or her life. On each side of its hind legs is the symbol for protection. This represents protection from earthly dangers and envious eyes, and also harmony so that one doesn’t get into a rough, hostile situation is one’s quest to simply get more financial luck to provide for one’s family. Also incorporated is the symbol for longevity to constantly provide good health. Lastly, although quite small and not easily visible, the Piyao was designed to have strong sharp teeth, to represent its power to fight off demons and also negative energies that might cause bad luck. There are a lot of Piyaos especially those that are made out of jade or other stones, but this one is specially designed to confront the remaining negative 3 month of the lunar 2017, and the lack of wealth energies of the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog.

Piyao5

It also has fierce but still friendly face, this indicates that while you can be fierce in business or work, you will still gain the support and admiration of the people around you. This also means that you can you charm to get to your wealth luck.

Piyao8

On top of that they designed the said Pi Xie’s with 12 heavenly money coins to represent wealth luck for each of the 12 lunar months. The coins are found on it’s back and also at the bottom part of the image and on his legs, so this represents that it walks on money and is need not ‘search’ for it.

Piyao4

On top of the 12 ‘big’ heavenly money coin, it also has another 5 heavenly money coin on each side of the it’s harness. This further represents that the ‘owner’ of the Pi Yao can harness wealth into his or her life. On each side of its hind legs is the symbol for protection. This represents protection from earthly dangers and envious eyes, and also harmony so that one doesn’t get into a rough, hostile situation is one’s quest to simply get more financial luck to provide for one’s family. Also incorporated is the symbol for longevity to constantly provide good health

But on top of that, the gold used in making the said Piyao are gold from the offering of the Sangha members to the temple.

Buddhist would offer money, food, flowers, oil, incense to an image, but a lot of them especially those are in grave situations will also offer gems and gold. It can be a gold necklace, gold bracelet, gold rings, or gold earrings, but it is not surprising to see even real miniature or small gold bars or gold coins. These gold offerings are recorded for proper auditing and then put in a special container under the foot of either the image of Sakyamuni Buddha (Sakyamuni Buddha), Medicine Buddha, Amitabha Buddha, Dipankara Buddha (Dipamkara Buddha), Bodhisattva Kuan Yin (also spelled as Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Quan Yin, Quan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon, Chenrezig), Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (Earth Store Bodhisattva / Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa) or Vajrapani Bodhisattva. They are just there for years, and whenever the Bhiksu (Monks) or Bhiksuni (Buddhist nuns) with the higher lamas chant mantras or recite sutras or perform pujas, the said jewelries or gold offerings are blessed as well. Then once in a while they open one of these containers to melt the gold to make an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or makes gold flakes out of it so that when we invite an amulets, they can ‘sell’ these gold to make said images of Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or make images under our name. This becomes a way for them to raise funds to make more images or temple or food for the monks especially the student monks and also for their food.

So you see, because they stay under an image for years, and they get the power from the chanting of mantras, reciting of sutras, or pujas from the Bhiksus, Bhiksunis or the high lamas like Guru Lama, these gold items becomes really blessed. And this is what Guru Lama has used to make the said Special Gold Piyaos.

But simply wearing a Piyao or the Special Gold Piyao is not enough. You need to ensure that the element that produces metal is constantly present in your life as well. Thus the Special Gold Piyao is strung along with some crystals. However, this is where it becomes personalized because the crystal or semi – precious stone while largely earth element that will harness the growth of metal, should also be dependent on the element that best represents your own wealth luck. So for some it will be citrine, some will be amethyst (like me), some may have jade or aventurine, some may have clear quartz or a moonstone, and some may have lapis lazuli or tourmaline or onyx.

As mentioned the Special Gold Piyao will play an important role and is one of the Holy Trinity must have amulets of the year. However, having this Special Gold Piyao for the rest of your life will also prove to be a powerful tool to continue to harness wealth luck / financial luck / money luck and also serves a great protection charm. Furthermore, if you find yourself confronted by Tai Suey or the Grand Duke Jupiter, it also serves as great ‘offering’.

But aside from the above mentioned charms and amulets. It will also be good if one can chant everyday under deep meditation a full mala of the mantras of King Vaisravana and the Five Dzambhalas (also spelled as Dzambala, Jambala, Jambhala, Zambhala, Zambala).

Some Basic Questions About the Hungry Ghosts and the Hungry Ghost Month Answered (3): What to Do When a Loved One or A Relative Dies on a Hungry Ghost Month?

Published Setyembre 6, 2017 by jptan2012

Death is always perceived as something negative. But the truth is sometimes death is actually good, because sometimes this means that a person can reincarnate into a better life.

However, if there is a death that one want’s to avoid is death in the evening and death during the Hungry Ghost Month. In this article we will solely talk about death during the Hungry Ghost Month.

First, if you are not familiar with what is Hungry Ghost Month, I suggest you read first the articles with links and titles found below this article.

Hungry Ghost Month is considered one of the worst seasons of the year, with its highlight on the day of the Hungry Ghost Festival, which is on the 15th day of the 7th lunar month. Hungry Ghost Month is the whole of the 7th lunar month. People are warned to take extra care and not take unnecessary trips and activities. One of the most important things that a Chinese takes caution of is going to the hospital or a funeral during this month.

I remember when I was young when a sister of my grandmother is really ill and her family was praying for her early demise out of compassion and pity so that she will not longer suffer. However, she lives on for a few months until during the Hungry Ghost Month there was sign that she was about expire. And so this time her family started praying that she live until after Hungry Ghost Month. This scene might be a little comical but if you are familiar how much negative energies goes around during Hungry Ghost Month you will understand why this is no laughing matter.

Buddhist and Taoist believes that when a person dies during Hungry Ghost Month this is surely a sign that this death was caused by the Hungry Ghost, with the exception of those who passed away between 5AM and 9AM, unless of course the cause of death is something that is tragic or sudden.

It is said that the consciousness (soul) of the newly dead is immediately pulled into the Hungry Ghost realm because there is a very big chance that the person’s dying process was hasten because ‘misery loves company’ and so the destitute Hungry Ghosts will try to pull a sick person’s soul so that they can have a surge of yang energy provided by the dying person.

Also when a death occurs on a Hungry Ghost Month, it usually means there are 2 more following that death, this 2 usually happens within a year of the death of the first one. And more often that not, the first death will also cause tremendous bad luck to the family.

So what to do if somebody dies within the Hungry Ghost Month?

  1. Go to a Buddhist temple and have a special puja done for the person for 49 days.
  2. Go vegetarian for 49 days.

 

If the above remedy is not possible, do the following instead:

  1. Get a Vajrapani Ruel and put it on the body or on the casket of the dead person all throughout the wake.
  2. Better to cremate the body.
  3. After the wake, get the Vajrapani Ruel and set – up a temporary altar for the person, and place a picture there and place the Vajrapani Ruel in front of the picture. Leave it there until the 49th day of the death of the person.
  4. Recite the The-Sutra-On-The-Original-Vows-And-Merits-Of-The-Medicine-Master-Lapis-Lazuli-Light-Tathagata and/or Sutra-of-the-Past-Vows-of-Earth-Store-Bodhisattva once a day for 49 days.
  5. Make offerings (flowers, oil, incense, water, fruits and vegetables, money) to an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva for 49 days.

Sutra & Mantra Retreat and Vajrapani Empowerment Ritual!

Published Nobyembre 4, 2015 by jptan2012

I have always believe in the power of chanting mantras and reciting / reading sutras. When people get in touch with me asking for the Vajrapani Ruel and because they can’t afford it or its not available at the time of request, I always tell them to chant some mantras or recite some sutras because these are very powerful tools or rituals that can help us surpass our problems. In fact, regular readers of this blog will see some personal testimonies of readers who simply chanted some mantras and were able to get their wishes.

That is why I’m very happy to announce that my Guru Lama is coming to the Philippines early next year to do a two – day Sutra and Mantra retreat and one day Vajrapani Empowerment Ritual. What’s even better is that the retreat and the Vajrapani Empowerment Ritual are going to be absolutely free!

I can’t clearly express as to what are the benefits of chanting a mantra and reciting a sutra because the wonderful blessings that one can get from them if properly done is simply enormous. It has the power to heal the sick, turn bad luck into good luck, create some wealth and financial luck. If these things are done for our recently departed relatives, it may give them a chance to be reborn with a good life.

The Sutra and Mantra retreat is going to be for 2 days from 6:30AM to 2:30AM straight! It seems quite tiring, but the truth is it’s not and if one is in the middle of it you’ll feel that 8 hours is simply nothing. Nevertheless, we’ll have 5 minutes bathroom break every hour or every hour ninety minutes, depending on the mantra and sutra being chanted or recited. On the first two days, which is the Sutra and Mantra retreat, we will be chanting and reciting different mantras and sutra for 8 hours each day straight! Well…almost straight!

On the third day, my Guru Lama is going to conduct a Vajrapani Empowerment Ritual or Puja.

What is an empowerment ritual or puja?

An empowerment ritual or puja is a ritual that is headed by a certified Lama that invokes the power of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity. This is to request blessings and protection from the Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity being invocated. This kind of ritual is rarely done in the Philippines and one needs a highly ordained monk or lama to be able to do this. For this particular empowerment ritual, we are invocating Vajrapani Bodhisattva, to get to know more about Vajrapani Bodhisattva please read my post called – THE WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL AMULET IN THE BUDDHIST PANTHEON CALLED VAJRAPANI RUEL.

Vajrapani Bodhisattva is primarily a protective bodhisattva but as you see in the various testimonials of people who has requested for the Vajrapani Ruel, a lot of these involve other things which is other than simply protection. For you to know more about these miracles you read some of the stories you can find below.

I will announce the exact date and time and location of the Sutra and Mantra Retreat and the Vajrapani Empowerment Ritual once we have finalized the details but this is confirmed and will happen soon after Chinese New Year of 2016.

As mentioned these events are absolutely free of charge. A reader who has experienced a Vajrapani Ruel miracle has committed to sponsor the vegetarian lunch (although it is going to be served after the retreat which is after 2:30pm). The vegetarian lunch is going to be cooked by Buddhist nun and volunteers of the host temple. Please note that although this is free we encourage you to bring some fruits as an offering to the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. We will also encourage you to give a Sangha Offering, which is customary for every Buddhist ritual. A Sangha Offering is done by giving you a red envelope and you can put any amount inside the envelope, which you will then offer on the altar. The money inside can be as low as twenty – five centavos and nobody will know the amount that you will put because it will be then passed on to the host temple without being opened. We do this because the host temple will have some expenses by hosting us that goes to electricity, water, incense, and manpower.

As early as now I will also like to say that during these events no late comers will be allowed to join, and we will start promptly using the Philippine Standard Time as our official time. Should you feel that the even is taxing and tedious we suggest you leave during one of the bathroom breaks, but once you leave you will not be allowed to enter again. This is because in events like this we have to be very conscious that you don’t disturb the presiding lama and the participant. Phones are also going to be collected for safekeeping. No phones and/or any gadgets are allowed inside the ceremony hall to preserve the solemnity of the hall and the retreat or ritual.

I’m sure a lot of you will be asking as to what are the Sutras and Mantras that we are going to recite and chant. Please see the list below in no particular order.

  1. Medicine Buddha Sutra
  2. The Buddha Speaks of Amitabha Sutra
