In Buddhism, reading or carrying a sutra will imbibe the blessing of a Buddha or Bodhisattva to whom the sutra comes from. I personally read the Medicine Buddha sutra everyday. It’s quite long but if you are in a rush, reading the shortest sutra in the world, which is the – THE HEART SUTRA – which is the Sutra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion, will also do.
The HEART SUTRA which is also one of the Sutras of the Bodhisattva of Compassion is the shortest sutra in the world. This is the Chinese version of the sutra.
Reading a sutra is a very powerful way to open up yourself to the blessings of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas. More importantly, it cleanses you from negative energies and negative karma. Sutras also carries with them protective attributes that work like amulets and by simply carrying the sutra or reading them you spiritually acquire these protective attributes.
For non-Buddhists, I was told that the Koran and the Bible might also bestow some blessings to the reader simply by looking at it.
Feng Shui masters believes that it is in the front door and the living room of our house that energy enters, thus it is very important that we keep the front door of our house free from clutter, and the living room uncluttered and also the furniture should be arrange in a way it doesn’t feel like it’s a maze and blocks normal passage.
The front door should always be clutter free.
Putting a pair of Piyao/Pixiu in front of the front door may also spell a lot of difference. It doesn’t just guard the whole house but it also captures luck and brings it to the inhabitants of the house.
