Feng Shui Tips to Enhance Wealth Luck, Financial Luck, and Money Luck!

Published Abril 7, 2017 by jptan2012

Last January 25, 2012 I wrote a post called FENG SHUI TIPS TO ENHANCE WEALTH LUCK! – Little did I know that it’ll become a constant most read article from the time it was written to this day, weirdly surpassed only by two other articles, namely:

I can understand why people would like the MYTH BUSTER 5 article, but I didn’t realize that a lot of people have been encountering bats.

Anyway, if you notice, what I wrote before is an article about increasing wealth luck. In this article, I will talk about wealth luck and financial luck. So what is the difference? Wealth luck refers more to more than just finances or financial. It refers to properties or even other aspects of getting rich. Financial luck refers to finances, it may be liquid or not. Money luck simply refers to money on hand.

You will notice that this article is going to be mostly a repeat of previous articles but more than that I have updated it and included more tips. You might also see yourself getting directed to older articles, this is when I need to manage the length of this article and will not have time to explain everything here.

When people found out that I studied Feng Shui and do Feng Shui consulting and audit on the side, they always ask me as to how can they enhance their wealth luck. Again, this is a question that can be fully answered by looking at the Bazi (also called Paht Chee, Four Pillars, Eight Characters) chart of the person. The Bazi is basically a formula wherein you look at the luck potential of a person by looking at their birth date and time.

Sometimes, there are specific wealth or financial or money amulet for a person depending on what the Bazi chart showed. However, there are some Buddhist or Taoist amulets that helps enhance wealth, financial, and money luck. Furthermore, there are Feng Shui symbols that will surely do the same.

Here are some of my favorite wealth, financial, and money luck enhancers…

VAJRAPANI RUEL

Lately, one of the Buddhist amulets that have the highest personal miraculous testimonies that have to do with enhancing wealth luck or financial luck or money is the controversial Vajrapani Ruel. I say that it is controversial because other than being considered as the world’s most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon, I think it is also one of the most attacked amulet, but the testimonies speaks for it self.

Here are just some of the more astounding and most read stories of the Vajrapani Ruel shared by my readers.

Please note that the Vajrapani Ruel although has a very high rate of money, financial, or wealth luck enhancement capabilities, it is still largely a protective amulet. But you will also find that it has a wish fulfilling capabilities.

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.

SURANGAMA MANTA AMULET

Although this amulet doesn’t enjoy as many personal testimonies as the Vajrapani Ruel, you will find that several readers still did experienced some wonderful financial luck stories about it. In fact, one of my readers said that she finds the Surangama Mantra Amulet better than the Vajrapani Ruel. You can read the story separately by clicking on the link below.

TRADITIONAL SUTRA AMULET (TSA)

THREE-LEGGED TOAD

The three-legged toad is one of the oldest and most powerful Feng Shui wealth charm or enhancer. However, for some time it was quite forgotten until Lillian Too of World of Feng Shui popularized it again.

My personal experience with the three-legged toad is simply astounding. However, what I want to share with you right now is about a friend’s experience with the three-legged toad. She asked me as to what can enhance her financial luck. After looking at her chart, I saw that her wealth luck is already ripe, but for some reason it hasn’t manifested yet. In fact, she’s currently in dire financial problem. I told her to get a three-legged toad. Furthermore, I gave her a three-legged toad pendant, and 2 months after she got the pendant and the three-legged toads, which she displayed in her house, she won the grand jackpot prize of the 6/42 lotto (in the Philippines). She won more than 4 million pesos! She swears it’s because of the three-legged toad…and I fully agree.

In getting the three-legged toad, please make sure that you place it adjacent to your front door. You can 3, 6, or 9 or more as long as it’s divisible by 3. Make sure that you have one toad facing the door and the other facing inside the house. Just scatter them on the floor; it can be under your table or chair. Never put the three-legged toad on the table they should always be on the floor and make sure that they all have a coin in their mouth!

Wearing a three legged toad pendant is also very auspicious!

You also might want to get to know more about the 3 – Legged Toad from Liu Hai. In a post called: An Unknown But Powerful Taoist Deity Called Liu Hai.

Three Legged Toad

The 3-Legged Toad. Please make sure when buying this you choose a three legged toad, there are some who sells the image of the frog. It’s not the same. It has to be the three-legged toad and choose the one with a coin in its mouth.

SAILING SHIPS

This is also one of the most powerful wealth charm or enhancer. You can place this on your sheng chi direction and or at the entrance of your house, store, or office. But please make sure that it’s ‘going in’ and not ‘going out’. You can also add some lucky coins on the ship.

However, I need to stress that if your element in your Bazi chart is really high in water or a weak fire, the Sailing Ship may not be the best wealth enhancer for you.

I recommended this to a friend whose retail store is just breaking even. He’s not making any money. After placing the Sailing Ship in his store, his sales started increasing. In fact, he now has 3 other stores.

Feng Shui Sailing Ship

In choosing a sailign ship, it would be better if it’s made of metal and colored in gold. Please make sure also that it’s going in and not out.

THE AUSPICIOUS WEALTH VASE

This is another powerful wealth enhancer. In fact, when I went to China, I realized that a lot of my wealthier relatives have wealth vases in their house. Yes, they keep not just one but several. One of my distant uncle has one in his living room, another one in the kitchen, one for each of the bedrooms, so not surprisingly, he also the wealthiest of my relatives in China.

The wealth vase is also both a Taoist and Buddhist wealth enhancer. In fact, to this day you’ll see Buddhist temples doing wealth vase blessings or wealth vase ceremonies.

In preparing a wealth vase you’ll need the following:

Any auspicious looking vase with a big mouth and a large body. It should have a cover also.

Five different cloths that can cover the head of the Vase. The colors should be white (metal), red (fire), blue (water), yellow (earth), green (wood). They represent the five elements.

Five different strings also representing the 5 elements.

3 different beans or grains. (E.g. Coffee bean, Red Bean, Rice Grain)

Whole Tea Leaves

Salt

Sugar

Three different candies or preserved fruits (no menthol).

Soil (preferably from a rich man that you admire).

Money – Five different denominations. (Preferably you ask this from the rich people that you admire.)

Picture of 3 different rich people.

Picture of your dream house.

Picture of your dream car.

Faux diamond or other semi precious stone.

Faux gold coins, ingots, bars.

Incense.

Image or Statuette of a Deity (Guan Gong, Sun Wukong (Monkey G0d), Tua Peh Kong, Dzambhala). They should be made of metal.

Wealth Amulets from a Taoist temple. (Optional)

First you place the soil at the bottom of the vase, followed by the tea leaves, grains, fruit preserves or candies, salt, sugar, picture of the dream house, dream car, wealth people, and then the money.

Put the wealth deity on top of the money. Take note where it’s facing and consider it as the front side of the wealth vase. Make a mark so you don’t forget.

Then fill the wealth vase with faux gems, gold (coins, ingots, bars) and all the other ‘ingredients’. Once they filled place the Taoist wealth amulets. Then cover with the lid. Place the 5 different cloths on top of the lid. Yellow first, followed by white, followed by blue, and then followed by green, then red. Then tie it with the five different color strings.

Place your wealth vase inside the cabinet to keep it hidden. Make sure that the deity inside is not facing out of the house but rather he should be facing in, thus you need to make a mark.

Wealth Vase

The Wealth Vase is used by a lot of Chinese to tap into their wealth luck. In fact, if you go to a house of a wealthy person in China, most likely they’ll have a wealth vase hidden somewhere in their house.

FAUX GOLD BARS OR INGOTS

If you were just building your house, it would be great if you can bury 168 pieces of faux gold coins under your main entrance. By doing this you literally walk on them every time you enter your house, thus you seem like ‘walking on money’. Also, you can put 21 pieces of this faux coins at all the entrance of the bedrooms of your house. You can also put 21 pieces of this faux gold coins under your bed.

You can also litter faux gold coins or faux gold ingots at different parts and corners of your house. This is to signify ‘money everywhere’.

goldgold-ingots-coins-bars2-400x300

Faux golld bars, ingots, and coins.

WEAR AN IMAGE OF A BUDDHA, BODHISATTVA, DEITY, DRAGON, OR TAOIST GODS

Another powerful wealth enhancer is the wearing of the different images of wealth deity. This is better if the pendant is made of gold, because for the Chinese gold is considered as the ultimate symbol of wealth and is also very auspicious.

Some of the suggested deity pendants are the image of KUAN YIN, GUAN GONG (KUAN KONG), DZAMBHALA, MAITREYA BUDDHA (also known as THE HAPPY FAT BUDDHA), and SUN WUKONG.

SALT IN THE WALLET.

Another way of creating good wealth luck is to always have a small packet of sea or rock salt in our wallet. Salt is a great chi cleanser, and having this in our pocket helps enhance wealth/money luck.sea-salt

PUT A WEALTH SIGN OR WEALTH SYMBOL AS WALLPAPER ON YOUR MOBILE PHONE.

Feng Shui is all about symbolism, and putting a symbol of wealth as a wallpaper of your mobile phone helps a little in giving our wealth luck a little boost. You can use either of the following: three legged toad, pictures of gold bars, gold ingots and/or different currencies.

PUT THE WISH FULFILLING MANTRA AS WALLPAPER ON YOUR MOBILE PHONE

I’ve talked about the WISH FULFILLING MANTRA and the power of MANTRA in my previous posts. Putting the symbolic script of the Wish Fulfilling Mantra on your mobile phone helps in actualizing your wealth luck wishes.

WEAR A NINE-EYE DZI BEAD.

A DZI bead is a special Tibetan bead that is suppose to have come from heaven. The DZI beads available in the market now are not original but they work as well. Wearing a 9-eye DZI bead either as a pendant or as a bracelet creates a lot of wealth luck. Strung this with real citrine beads and a jade Piyao (Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pixie, Pixie) to further enhance its energies.citrine dzi piyao

WEAR A GOLD OR JADE PIYAO

A Piyao (or Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pi Xie, Pixie) is not only a good amulet to appease Tai Suey, but it is also a very good wealth enhancer.

WEAR AN IMAGE OF LIU HAI

It is said that only Liu Hai can manage the three – legged toad, which makes him an excellent wealth enhancer Taoist deity. You can read more about him on an article I have written about him before.

ALWAYS HAVE THE 8 NATURAL WEALTH AND FINANCIAL EHANCER INGREDIENTS AT HOME.

There are some very simple ingredients that we can find at home that can help enhance our wealth and financial luck. You can find the list by clicking here.

LEARN HOW TO USE CITRINE WATER OR CRYSTAL GRID

Citrine is one of the most powerful wealth luck, or money luck, or financial luck enhancer. Learn how to do them by reading the following articles:

Lastly, there is one thing that a lot of us forget. To help enhance wealth luck, financial luck, or money luck, remember that RECEIPTS IN THE WALLET/POCKET CREATE BAD MONEY FENG SHUI. Most of us tend to keep receipts in our wallet or pocket and just forget about it. In fact, it is not surprising that some of us may have some receipts in our wallet that’s been there for months or years. However, you should note that keeping a receipt in your wallet or pocket might create slight bad money Feng Shui. It signifies that you always have bills to pay.

And if you feel that everything is good with you, sustain it with Red and Gold. Learn more about it by clicking here.

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

Published Disyembre 27, 2016 by jptan2012

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

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

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

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

Effects:

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

Feng Shui Enhancers:

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

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

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

 

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

Effects:

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

Feng Shui Enhancers:

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

 

24 Mountains:

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

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

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

3-celestial-guardians

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

 

 

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

Effects:

Technically speaking, this is neither a good or bad star. The power of this star is to let you reap whatever you sow. This star basically multiplies whatever karma you accumulate. If you do more good things you’ll have more good luck in the future, but if you continue to do a lot of bad things, you multiply your negative karma as well.

Feng Shui Cure:

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

24 Mountain Stars:

However, the SouthEast has the Yearly Killing Star.

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

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

Prayer wheel solar

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

 

 

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

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

Effects:

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

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

Feng Shui Cure:

AGAIN! AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE MOVE OUT FROM THIS SECTION OR DON’T USE THIS SECTION. If that is not possible, you can also use the Five Element Pagoda (5 – Element Pagoda), and the Kalachakra made of gold. But I only recommended this as a secondary option. There is going to be a slight difference on how you use the Five Element Pagoda. First, make sure you are using a new one, take away the old ones and get a new one. Make sure also that it is something that can be opened (please see image below). Inside the top opening, instead of putting a soil, put a crystal. In that case you will still have use an earth element but with a very positive chi. Then at the bottom opening, you have to put three to five powerful amulets or mantras or sutras. I strongly recommend the following:

Please note that you should have at least have 2 of the first three suggestions.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

24 Mountain Stars:

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

 

 

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

Effects:

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

Feng Shui Cure:

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

24 Mountain Stars:

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

sutra-amulets

These are just one copy each of the very limited copies sent to me by my Guru Lama of the THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA, THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA. Sutras are also used as very powerful amulets, that is why you will often old Buddhist Chinese houses has a copy of the Sutra on their altar though they might not be reciting the sutra itself.

 

 

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

Effects:

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

Feng Shui Cure:

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

24 Mountain Stars:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

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

Effects:

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

Feng Shui Cure:

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

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

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

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

Illness Suppression Amulet3

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

 

24 Mountain Stars:

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

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

 

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

Effects:

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

Feng Shui Enhancers:

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

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

24 MOUNTAIN STAR:

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

 

 

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

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

Effects:

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

Feng Shui Enhancer:

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

24 MOUNTAIN STARS:

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

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

The Politician’s Lucky Charm or Amulet!

Published Oktubre 26, 2015 by jptan2012

It is once again election time, and whether we admit it or not, a lot of Filipinos now believes in Feng Shui and incorporates a lot of Chinese rituals to help ensure that they win the election on 2016.

Recently, a representative of a politician called me up asking for several pieces of the Vajrapani Ruel, I had to explain that the Vajrapani Ruel is very limited and that a person can only have one piece, a family may have 2 or at most 3, this is to give more family to have one.

I also notice a surge in the inquiry as to what is the best amulet or Feng Shui charm for a politician who is running for office.

Here are a few of my recommendations:

  1. Sun Wukong or The Monkey God. Read my post about this powerful Taoist deity or god and you’ll understand why wearing his image as a pendant is greatly beneficial to politicians. sun wukong
  2. Kuan Kong. I have written about Kuan Kong already and wearing his image will also give a politician a competitive edge this coming election.kuan kong pendant
  3. Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra. If you are in an area that is considered as a hot spot during elections because of hostile political opponents, I suggest that you wear a Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra this is to help temper the possible hostile energies.

  4. Vajrapani Ruel. As mentioned on the very post about the Vajrapani Ruel, it is largely a protection amulet, although regular readers of this blog knows that there are a lot of different wishes that are fulfilled by the Vajrapani Ruel. A dream to serve the people should be one of them. Plus, given that Vajrapani Bodhisattva is a Bodhisattva that of lightning and thunder family, it gives the people who has it the winning edge.

    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.

  5. Surangama Mantra Amulet. To understand more about this amulet, I suggest you read my initial post about it by clicking here. However, bear in mind, that when a person wears the Surangama Mantra Amulet, one is surrounded by certain heavenly beings, thus giving a person a good and ‘charming’ aura; it makes a person more likeable. But more than that it is also a protective amulet, so it is highly advisable for hot spots also.
    Pure Land Buddhists believes that when you wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet, heavenly beings that has an affinity with you will hover over you.

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

Published Disyembre 14, 2014 by jptan2012

Photo Uploaded from Google Images

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

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


 

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

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

 

 


 

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

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

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

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

    The Kalachakra Symbol is a powerful protection symbol. It is actually ten syllable mantra compressed into one symbol. The mantra is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, it is usually chanted with OM AH HUM thus making the complete mantra as OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. It is because off this that I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

It is because off this that for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol. You can get a Kalachakra pendant as well.

 

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

 

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

 

Now lets move to the different animal signs.

 

The RAT…

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

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

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

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

Recommendations:

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

To help manage the Wu Duo star you can wear a prayer wheel with the mantra of Bodhisattva of Compassion, Kuan Yin or Guru Rinpoche.

 The OX…

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

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

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

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

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

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

Recommendations:

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

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

Gold Piyao pendants worn as amulets are also very auspicious.

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

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

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

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

This is a Kalachakra Pendant designed by Lillian Too. She has included some mandala sands inside the pendant to make it more potent. I personally love this pendant and has one that is made of white gold. The Kalachakra Symbol is a powerful protection symbol. It is actually ten syllable mantra compressed into one symbol. The mantra is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, it is usually chanted with OM AH HUM thus making the complete mantra as OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. It is because off this that for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA'S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

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

Medicine Buddha

 The TIGER…

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

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

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

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

Recommendations:

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

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

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

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

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

Recommendations:

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

To further enhance your power and authority, you can wear an image of Kuan Kong or a Ruyi.ruyi jade pendant

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

Lastly, wear a Victory Banner to enhance the #1 White Victory Star.

The DRAGON…

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.

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

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

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

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

Recommendations:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Recommendations:

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

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

The HORSE…

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

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

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

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

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

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

Recommendations:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nowadays, people use a prayer wheel with a microfilm to significantly increase the numbers of mantras that’s inside the prayer wheel.

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

The SHEEP…

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

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

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

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

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

Recommendations:

The first thing you should do is wearing an image of the Piyao (Pi Xiu, Pixiu, Pi Xie, Pixie, Pi Yao) or Dou Mu Yuan Jun to appease the Tai Sui God of the year. I together with a help of a reader might come up with a Master Tai Sui Protection pendant.

But more than that, on the entry of Feb 19, 2015 (midnight of Feb 18, 2015 and Feb. 19, 2015) do light incense on your altar or west section of your house.

The Kalachakra Pendant is one of the most powerful Buddhism tools to counter negative energies. Kalachakra doesn't have a direct translation in any other language but it loosely  means 'the one with 10 powers'. It is also a very powerful protection pendant. You'll normally see Buddhist monk wear this somewhere around their body. I personally have 3 different Kalachakra pendants. One is made of crystal quartz engraved with a the Kalachakra, another one is made of stainless steel but enclose on it are colored Kalachakra sand and was personally blessed by Lama Zopa Rinpoche. The third Kalachakra pendant is a white gold Kalachakra with Kalachakra Mandala Sand from one of the Kalachakra initiation conducted by the Dalai Lama, this third piece is truly a collector's item because there are only 1,000 pieces made.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

To manage the #7 Violent Star alone, you can carry the Blue Elephant and Blue Rhinoceros charm. But to manage the combine effects of the Star of Violence of the Flying Star formula and the Robbery Star of the 24 Mountain Stars formula you SHOULD combine either an image of Kuan Kong or Sun Wukong or Amitabha Buddha with the Kalachakra or the image  of Ushnisha Sitataputra (also known as the White Umbrella Goddess).

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

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

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

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

Recommendations:

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

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

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

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

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

Recommendations:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The PIG…

General Traits: Just, discerning, wise, intellectual and well-informed, lucky with money and in friendship, always admired, self-indulgent, cultured, loyal, reliable, naïve, tend to get frustrated due to lack of knowledge

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

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

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

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

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

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

Recommendations:

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

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

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

Windhorse or Lung-Ta with the 'Wish Fulfilling Jewel of Enlightenment' on its back.  Please note that this is the Lung Ta or Wind Horse, just found out that some people try to sell of an ordinary image of an ordinary horse saying its a Lung Ta.

From my personal collection. A rare Red Amber Ksitigarbha. If wearing it as a pendant, I prefer the image with the five leave crown.  Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to get a Ksitigarbha pendant unless you're from Malaysia, Hong Kong, or Singapore.

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

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

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

2015 Year of the Wood Sheep Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi, Flying Stars, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: A Balanced Year Filled with Wealth and Resources But May Be Ruled By Arguments and Fighting ( Part 2)

In my previous post, I talked about the forecast for the 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep, mainly focusing on the Bazi or Paht Chee with the annual Flying Stars and 24 Mountain Stars. There I talked about the Holy Trinity of Protection for the year, which are the images of Kuan Yin, Kuan Kong and a Kalachakra.

flying-star-2015

Image lifted from Google Images.

In all my forecast I start with the East, but I’d like to change that a little this time. Let’s start with the center because this is quite important.


 

This is the second of three series of forecast:

 

 

 


 

The Center has the #3 Flying Star, which is also, called the ARGUMENTATIVE STAR, because of this, the year is then ruled by this particular star. The 3# Flying Star’s element is also wood, and as we know, if coupled with the Bazi reading of the year which is largely ruled by the Wood element it thus then make the ruling star a very strong one. Its natural strength is enhanced and doubled.

Effects: The Flying Star #3 also known, as the Argumentative Star is a star that causes relationship problem, numerous bickering, litigation problems, quarrels and problems/conflicts with people in authority. This year it will greatly affect all of us. And it is further doubled if your office or room is in the center of the house, building, establishment, etc. Furthermore, as mentioned in the earlier post, there’s a destructive pillar in this year’s Paht Chee chart, namely the word element destroying the earth element this further strengthens the quarrelsome nature of the star. If not controlled and suppressed, this star will bring about tremendous with your family and officemates or business partners. It can also cause a lot of unnecessary legal issues. This star has to be suppressed.

It also has to be noted for this year, that all of us are affected by this star, but the most affected are the animal signs whose intrinsic element is earth and people whose self – element is earth are the most affected.

Feng Shui Cure: Normally the best cures for this star are either the Ksitigarbha Fireball or the Nine – Ring Sword of Kuan Kong. The image of Kuan Kong is also a very good cure for this star. People affected by this star can wear or carry an image of the cures. The Maitreya Buddha also known as the Happy Fat Buddha is also a great help. These are what I normally recommend. However, for this year, as mentioned in my previous post, we will all need the Holy Trinity of Protection for 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep. The said Holy Trinity of Protection are Kuan Kong, which will suppressed the said star, Kalachakra for the peripheral effect, and Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra (you can carry the Heart Sutra separately) to create harmony. It is not enough for us to simply suppress and protect ourselves from the effects of the said star, we must actively create harmony. Inviting the said images in your home, and wearing their images as a pendant will protect us from the terrible effects of the said #3 Argumentative Flying Star. For those who have the Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant, all you need is to get an image of Kuan Yin and a Heart Sutra that you can carry around.

In wearing a Kuan Kong pendant remember to look for one that has a fierce face and better to get them in gold or something that has a red face.

The Kalachakra symbol is one of the most powerful protection symbol in Buddhism. It actually consists of ten syllable mantra, with it symbolic script condensed into one. The mantra itself is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, the mantra of the Kalachakra is never chanted without the mantra OM AH HUM. Making the complete mantra of Kalachakra - OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. This is the reason why I decided to put the symbolic script of the mantra OM AH HUM on top of the Kalachakra symbol. As mentioned this is a very powerful protection symbol and can be likened to the Scapular of the Catholics. In fact, you'll seldom see a Tibetan Monk with wearing the symbol of the Kalachakra on their body. It may be hidden but most likely they have it somewhere on their body. But you'll never see them have the symbolic scripts tattooed because it is considered extremely bad luck to have a mantra tattooed on your body.

If you wish to wear or invite ‘non – religious’ images for this star, you can use the Ksitigarbha Fireball or Nine – Ringed Sword with apple, and Kalachakra. Kalachakra is a religious image but it doesn’t bear the image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva.

The Ksitigarbha Fireball is a pearl on the hand of  Ksitigarbha Buddha that fires up when there are negative energies.

 However, I think what is more important to know here is that depending on the location of the seat power, some countries might experience more political instability because of fighting. Some countries might even brew a possibility of war. Middle East countries are definitely affected with this star and the China might also be affected, although knowing China, it is highly possible that this is going to be because of their own doing. South East Asia is technically not very much affected of this star, but since this is the ruling star and because of their proximity to China, this might affect them. For the Philippines, base on the chart, our sea dispute with China might further escalate. We can only hope that the peaceful Tai Suey and ruling sign of the year will be enough to temper the effects of this star. Leaders who are calm are needed now.

THE EAST HAS THE #1 FLYING STAR CALLED WHITE VICTORY STAR

Effects: This star brings luck to your endeavors. It helps ensure your success. This year the White Victory Star also ensures that people whose main door faces the east will have wondrous victory luck.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Put in your bedroom or carry or wear one of the following images – Victory Banner, Lung – Ta or Wind Horse, Kuan Kong.

THE SOUTHEAST HAS THE #2 FLYING STAR CALLED ILLNESS STAR

Effects: As the name implies, this star causes illness and to some extent it can be fatal or terminal. Sometime, this star can also cause some accidents that may make you invalid for a long time if not permanently. However, while it will still affect the eldest daughter of the family, this year it is a weak star.

Feng Shui Cure: The primary cure for the ILLNESS STAR is the Medicine Buddha. Wear an image of the Medicine Buddha as pendant or wear the symbolic script of the mantra of the Medicine Buddha or wear a Medicine Buddha prayer wheel to help counter the ill effects of the said star. Chanting the mantra of the Medicine Buddha is also a great way to manage the said star. Secondary cure is Wulou (also spelled as Wu Lou) or Holy Gourd. Please note that it is considered very disrespectful if you put an image of the Medicine Buddha in your room, so in this case one can put the Holy Gourd.

THE SOUTH HAS THE #7 FLYING STAR ALSO CALLED THE VIOLENT STAR

Effects: The star brings hostility and loss through robbery, theft, or even manipulation.

Feng Shui Cure: One of the following items – Image of Sun Wukong (aka Monkey God), Image of Kuan Kong (also known as Kuan Ti, Guan Ti, Kuan Te Ya, Guan Te Ya, Guan Gong), Image Elephant with Rhinoceros. For people who are staying on this side have the house or office, or for people born under the sign of the horse, it is advisable to wear an image of Sun Wukong, Kuan Kong, or a Mantra Pendant. The WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT that has the image of THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN – SUN WUKONG, and the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT that has the image of Kuan Kong are also advisable.

Sun Wukong aka Monkey God aka Pilgrim aka 'Great Sage, Equal to Heaven' is a very powerful wealth and protector god. He is one of the few deities worshipped both in Taoism (also spelled as Daoism) and Buddhism.

THE SOUTHWEST HAS THE #9 FLYING STAR CALLED THE MULTIPLYING AND FUTURE PROSPERITY STAR AND IT IS JOINED BY THE TAIS SUEY GOD OF THE YEAR

Effects: Technically speaking, this is neither a good or bad star. The power of this star is to let you reap whatever you sow. This star basically multiplies whatever karma you accumulate. If you do more good things you’ll have more good luck in the future, but if you continue to do a lot of bad things, you multiply your negative karma as well.

Feng Shui Cure: Last year, I didn’t put any enhancer or cure recommendations because I want people to be more conscious about what they do. However, a reader told me that there are times that we simply, without intending to be bad, create some things that earn us negative karma. For this I highly recommend either the image of the Medicine Buddha or the symbolic script of the mantra OM AH HUM or OM HANU PASHA BARA HE YE SOHA both of which are on the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

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

The Taoists, where most of how we do Feng Shui originated, believes that a certain God called Tai Suey or Tai Sui or Grand Duke in English rules a year. This year 2015, Tai Sui of the year is Great General Yang Xian. However, you have to understand a little about Taoist Gods for you to be able to understand why we have to be careful in dealing with the Tai Suey.

Great General Yang Xian is the 2015 Tai Sui God.

Great General Yang Xian is the 2015 Tai Sui God.

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

To help ensure that Tai Suey is happy with us always carry an image of the Pi Yao or Pi Xiu. This celestial animal will help appease the Grand Duke or Tai Suey. Another image that can help manage the Tai Suey God is to carry, display or wear an image of the Wind Horse or Lung Ta. People born in the year of the Sheep and Ox are directly affected by the Tai Suey God (also spelled as Tai Sui, Tai Sue) but those born under the sign of the horse, monkey, tiger and rat are also indirectly afflicted by way of side of afflictions. should have either the Piyao or Lung – Ta. Also, if your door faces SouthWest, or if your bedroom and office is in the SouthWest you should also put the image of the Piyao or Lung Ta or Windhorse. People who are occupying the SouthWest also should wear or carry the image of the Piyao or Lung Ta. Also one of the best protections for the Tai Suey is an image of the Goddess of the North Star or Dou Mu Yuan Jun, thus having her image is also highly advisable.

Always get a Pi Yao pendant that has an active stance.

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

THE WEST HAS THE #5 FLYING STAR OR THE DREADED FIVE YELLOW STAR AND THE THREE KILLINGS

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

Feng Shui Cure: AGAIN! AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE MOVE OUT FROM THIS SECTION OR DON’T USE THIS SECTION. You can also use the Five Element Pagoda (5 – Element Pagoda), or the Kalachakra. For people who stays in this section of the house or building and if you can’t move out of this sector, it is very important that you wear either the Kalachakra or the Five Element Pagoda. Furthermore, people born in the year of the Rooster should also ensure that they wear either the Five Element Pagoda or the Kalachakra.

Five Element Pagoda

Five Element Pagoda

This year the Three Killings also found its way to the West, thus making a double whammy on this sector. Unlike the Tai Suey or the Five Yellow Star, which we must avoid, the 3 – Killings is something that we must confront. Meaning, the best way to deal with it is to face the Three Killings and not turn our back against it. If the 3 Killings is not confronted then it can wreak three kinds of misfortunes to a person. The three misfortunes are accident, financial loss, and illness. However, since it’s with the #5 Star confronting it might be bad for us.

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

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

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

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

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

Feng Shui Enhancer: For single person you can put a Rose Quartz Mandarin Ducks on your bedside. For married couple, you can hang the Double Happiness on your headboard. To safeguard yourself from a third party, tie an Amethyst Geode with Red String on the foot of your bed or ask your partner to wear a gold image of Kuan Kong. You can also use the power of Green Tara to ensure that this star works for the positive only.

THE NORTH HAS THE #8 FLYING STAR CALLED WEALTH STAR

(Thank you to the one who called my attention for the typo.)

Effects: This star is a very good star. It gives you abundance and to some a ‘bottomless’ pocket filled with money. This star is not just about money wealth but this is also for over – all abundance. People born under the sign of Rat, Ox, and Pig or Boar will benefit from this star.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Faux gold Coins or Bars or Ingots should be place on this sector. Wear an image of a Wealth Deity like the Maitreya Buddha, Kuan Kong, or Sun Wukong.

Faux Gold Coins, Ingots, and Bars are available in Ongpin. If you can't find one please contact me at sanaakosirickylee@gmail.com

THE NORTHEAST HAS THE #6 FLYING STAR CALLED HEAVEN’S BLESSINGS AND MENTOR STAR

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

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

There are several different forms or manifestations of Dzambhala (also spelled as Jambala or Dzambala). Dzambala is a Buddhism Wealth God. The one in the picture is the most common or most famous manifestation of Dzambhala which is the Yellow Dzambhala.

The 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep (also called as Goat or rarely Lamb) doesn’t usher in until Feb. 19, 2015, but as early as now people are already clamoring for a forecast. So here is the first part of my analysis base on the year bazi or paht chee, flying stars and 24 mountain stars formula.

The bazi or Paht Chee of the year of the Wood Sheep (2015) is a balanced chart, meaning it has all the 5 elements: wood (3), earth (2), water (1), metal (1), and fire (1).


 

This is the first of three series.

 


 

 

Let us focus on the Wood element first because it has the highest number of appearance on the chart that is not counting the hidden elements. Wood, represents wealth this year, and I’m really happy that the number 3 is just perfect because would it have been 4 and 5 it might mean that we will all be aspiring for wealth that is totally unattainable, so 3 is just right. Having said this, it is clear that 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep presents a lot of wealth luck potential for all of us. Unlike in 2014 Year of the Wood Horse, wherein wealth is largely concentrated on the first half of the year; this year’s wealth luck is spread throughout the year. However, much of our wealth and resources luck has been depleted this year, it might take us awhile to actually feel the wealth potential of 2015. It has to go through some sort of regeneration. This only mean that the last half of the year is going to be better than the first half, or at most we will start to feel the wealth luck by the 4th lunar month of the 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep. The hidden element shows two more fire, and again this serves to contribute to our wealth luck, what does this mean, even if you don’t have a clear way of making money, if you just work hard you’re sure to get it. Kuan KongTo further enhance this wealth luck you can invite the image of Kuan Kong or Sun Wukong or Maitreya Buddha (Happy Buddha) to your home, wearing their images, as a pendant is also really good. Aside from their images you can also wear either a pendant of the three – legged toad.

Next we have two earth elements, again not counting the hidden elements, and for this year the earth element represents resources. Again, as you can see this is a very good sign because this shows that we won’t lack for personal and professional resources. This totally makes sense because resources will also lead us to wealth luck, but this also mean that even if we only a small share of resources it will still lead to great wealth. As you can see the coming year, as shown on its bazi or Paht Chee chart is showing a lot of potential for us. The hidden element shows 2 more earth elements, and this translate in the fact that when one humble oneself, and one perseveres, one will surely find the resources that they need. To enhance this year’s earth element so that you can fully tap into the luck that it brings, it is also advisable to wear any kind of gemstone. One will do and because I believe that all of us regardless of your Basket of Elements should have a jade, then let it be jade.

I'm a firm believer that everybody should have at least one jade. That is regardless of your animal sign and basket of elements.

I’m a firm believer that everybody should have at least one jade. That is regardless of your animal sign and basket of elements.

If you’re familiar with Bazi or Paht Chee reading and with the relationships of the elements, you’ll notice that there is destructive pillar in the chart. I’m referring to the Wood element and the Earth element. This might mean that there might be significantly destructive earthquakes happening next year, especially in the first half of the year. Or it could also mean any kind of calamity that has something to do with earth or agriculture. It could also mean potential landslides brought about the storm. Again, what I write here are not fortunetelling, these are base on calculations from the year’s Bazi and my own analysis. A lot of human factor is involved so I can be wrong. For example, although, as pointed out by a reader, I was able to accurately ‘predicted’ (for the lack of word) the Yolanda (Typhoon Haiyan) crisis last 2013 down to the point as to where it might happen, I was not able to accurately analyze that there is going to be another Super Typhoon hitting the Philippines this 2014. Although, I did say that while this year is going to be really warm, strong rains is also going to happen. While my analysis was correct, I was not able to predict the Super Typhoon Ruby or Hagupit. But in hindsight, it should have been obvious but human factor; specifically my emotions disrupted the process in having a very good analysis because my emotions and mind is unable to conceive of another super typhoon hitting us.

Going back to the analysis, it should be mentioned that this destructive pillar also needs to symbolically happen because in Taoism wood destroying earth means there is a release of wealth that’s going to transpire. Figuratively, it needs to be released from its hiding place, which is believed to be deep with the earth or mountains. So again this destructive pillar is another indication that wealth luck is going to be good. And again, wood represents wealth this year, and it shows that wood is destroying earth, so again it means that if you use your resources wealth is going to come. If the destructive earthquake should happen, there is a possibility that it will happen in a part of the world where it is mountainous, because as I said it has to ‘release’ the wealth from the mountain, and there is also a possibility of it happening in Asia. That’s another good analysis of the chart but obviously we have to go through some cathartic process.

There is one element of water in the chart, and the hidden element shows no other water. Water, which represents intelligence in the 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep, simply shows that this year once intelligence is not going to be the main factor in attaining success and luck this year.

There is also one metal element found in the chart. And again this is good news because this year the metal element represents either friends or foe, it represents the self – element of the year, and if this high it will mean that it’s going to be a very competitive year, and having a low metal element means it’s going to be a year that will make those who are friendlier and not very maliciously competitive, and whose approach are not aggressive more successful. This shouldn’t be confused on the fact that this is going to be peaceful friendly year, because this year’s flying chart is ruled by #3 star, a star that shows that there will be a lot of fighting and quarrelling, this is not contradictory with each other, but more on this later.

Lastly, there is a single fire element, which is enhanced by 2 hidden fire elements, which indicates power and authority. This is good because this means that those in power or those who have authority will tend to be more helpful towards who don’t have it, but more than that, all of us will enjoy some sort of power and authority. The difference will come on how we use it. This means all of us will have some kind of leverage.

Earlier on this post, I mentioned of the destructive pillars. But the good news is there are also productive pillars. I will not go into details what are these hidden elements but I would like to state that this would manifest in enabling stability. This will manifest more in one’s career and social position.

And here’s another piece of good news for this year, this year we also have the Star of the Powerful Mentors and this manifest in the form of elderly or influential people extending help. To attract and enhance the Star of Powerful Mentor, it is beneficial to wear an image either of Amitabha Buddha, Kuan Kong/Sangharama Bodhisattva or Lu Dongbin.

Unfortunately, also base on the flying star, the year ruled by the #3 flying star that is also known as the Argumentative Star. This star brings about a lot of fighting and arguments. There will be possible lawsuits and to top it off, there might be violence brought about this star. To subdue this star, all of us must wear either the image of Kuan Kong or Ksitigarbha’s Fireball. However, to continue to protect oneself from the peripheral effect of this star, one can wear a Kalachakra made of gold or jade. Lastly, it is not enough to subdue and protect oneself from the peripheral effects of this star, it is also important to create harmony, and we can do this by wearing an image of Kuan Yin while carrying the Heart Sutra. If you can get the Kuan Yin with the Heart Sutra at the back, all the better. For those who have the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, all you need is to get an image of Kuan Yin, because the pendant already has the image of Kuan Kong and the Kalachakra. I consider Kuan Yin, Kuan Kong, and the Kalachakra as the holy trinity of protection of the year.

An analysis of the 24 Mountain Stars also indicates a generally positive year. There are so much more positive stars than negative ones. One of these stars that are quite strong is the Big Auspicious star, and almost all animal signs is actually going to feel this star. Again, to further enhance this star is recommended that you wear an image either of Kuan Kong, Sun Wukong, Yellow Dzambhala, White Dzambhala or Maitreya Buddha.

Namo Sangharama Bodhisattva: A Bodhisattva that Protects, Grants Wealth Blessings, Protects Marital Relationships and is Better Known as Kuan Kong

Published Nobyembre 18, 2014 by jptan2012

kuan kong 3The first time I wrote about Kuan Kong was last February 15, 2012. Since then I have not written much about him except for a few mention in some blog articles and about the boy who is believed to have been saved by Kuan Kong from his death when Typhoon Yolanda (with international name Haiyan) hit the Philippines.

After almost 2 years, I am once again writing about Him because I feel that not to write about Him more is a great injustice to Kuan Kong (also called or spelled as Guan Gong, Guan Yu, Kuan Yu, Kwan Kong, Kwan Ti, Kuan Ti, Guan Ti, or Guan Sheng Di Jun).

Guan Yu as he is known as a person died in 220, but his date of birth is unknown. He actually served as a general with Liu Bei, as Eastern Han Dynasty warlord. It must be noted that although they’re called warlords it doesn’t necessarily mean they’re evil; we have to understand that during those time it is the norm.

Guan Yu is one of the best-known Chinese historical figures throughout East Asia that has slowly taken on the world. As mentioned in my last post about Guan Yu or Kuan Kong, the web is a treasure trove of stories about his life. However, I don’t think anyone alive now can actually say for certain what are the most accurate facts and what are the embellishments because people by nature loves to romanticized a person they admire or idolized. However, please be assured that in the bits and pieces of his life that I will share here in this post I will share with you what are the stories that historically proven and accepted. In the absence of that ‘confirmation’, it doesn’t mean that it didn’t happen, but it only means that it may be not very accurate or that it is widely accepted but may be argued by some historians. kuan kong 2

What is not arguable here is Guan Yu is so much loved and so much respected that he is the only person who became a deity or Bodhisattva in three of the major oldest religion in China. Although there has been a lot of crossovers between Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, like Kuan Yin being a high goddess in Taoism, and giving rise to the unofficial religion called Chinese Buddhism, Guan Yu or Kuan Kong or Guan Gong, is the only historically human being who became a significant deity or lord in Taoism, a significant Bodhisattva in Buddhism, and a significant god in Confucianism.  Not to mention that he is also a prominent figure in Chinese folk religion.

Guan Yu is known for being a very good general. In fact, he won most of his wars with as little bloodshed as possible. He doesn’t believe in killing all the enemies. When he wins a war he will not take unnecessary prisoners, so the prisoners that he takes are only the high officials and he would always treat them with utmost humanity. Those soldiers who yield to him are given the choice to join his troops or leave and go home to their family. His wars always has a cause and he will only resort to go to war only if he is absolutely sure in his heart that the war will in the end will serve greater good and is only the last resort. This kind of attitude runs akin to the Buddhist teaching that states one cannot judge the means but one can only judge what’s inside the heart of a person. I hope this will not be taken out – of – context, but in a simplistic point of view, what it means is that at the end some means might be seemingly evil or bad but in the end it is the deepest intent of the heart of the person whether the act is really evil or not. I would like to expound on this teaching a little further and leave Guan Yu’s story for a while in the next paragraph.

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama once shared a story. A guy went on a trip via a ship. While he was onboard the ship he came across a plot by two men to plant a bomb on the ship and kill all the people onboard as an act of terrorism. The man went to inform the captain, but after some reluctant investigation, for they didn’t believe him, it was said that there was no plot at all. Still he did his best to make people believe him, however, nobody believed him. He was totally left in despair as to how to save the people on board. As the time of doom arrives he decided to confront the two terrorists, his first approach was to talk them out of what they plan to do, but because the terrorists perceived that he is a threat to what they have set out to do they manhandled him, brought him to their cabin to either bound him there or kill him. All throughout the man never feared for his life but he feared for the life of the hundreds of people onboard the ship. He knows that he has to do something otherwise all the people on the ship will perish, but he also knows that it is not only the people onboard the ship that will perish but their family will also grieve for them. He was left with no choice and although he knows what he needs to do is wrong, in the end he was left with no choice but to fight the two terrorists and hurt them enough to restrain them. In the process, he accidentally killed both terrorists. There is another version of the story that says he also died with them, an act of suicide that also killed the other terrorist. Whatever the version of the ending the message is quite clear. Killing and suicide are both considered graved sin one that causes eons of negative karma, but the man was reborn as a high lama that is because according to the Dalai Lama, while the act itself alone is pure evil, the deepest intent, meaning deep in his heart, it was not simply to kill the two men, but to save hundreds of live and prevent several more the pain of grief. Superficially speaking this is a Buddhist concept that can be easily abused. But let us always remember that in the end it is not our fellowmen’s judgment that we must be wary of but our own deep conscience and that of karma.

kuan kong 4Going back to Guan Yu, one of the most famous verified story about him was when he took a hit from an arrow. It was a poisoned arrow and the doctor needs to clean his wound right to the bone. He wants to administer a strong alcohol (medicinal wine) to Guan Yu so that he won’t feel the pain, or at the very least he will be able to tolerate the pain as he would open and clean it down to the bone. Guan Yu refused to take the alcohol because he believes taking the alcohol will totally cloud his mind. Please note that at this point he is already showing some signs that his belief are leaning towards Buddhism. For if he were purely Taoist, it would have been fine for him to drink the medicinal wine even if it clouds his mind. For Buddhism, medicinal wine are allowed as long as it doesn’t cloud your mind so much that you are unable to control it. What happen next are two different versions of the story. One version states that he didn’t take the wine but instead went into deep meditation by concentrating on a single matter and in his case he choose to play Chinese chess with himself, and that he totally didn’t feel any pain, even if the doctor was scraping his wound down to the bone to make sure there are no poison left. The other version is that he felt the pain but still bravely faces it rather than cloud his mind with the effects of medicinal wine. Personally, I’m unable to make a decision, which is true, because if he is a practicing Taoist or Buddhist, and if his practice is really deep already, being ‘operated’ without pain relievers, in his case medicinal wine is not impossible. But the point of importance here, is that he already showed signs of refusing wine for the reason that he doesn’t want to cloud his mind, which is a Buddhist teaching. I raise this point because it is later on very important part of his life for him to be accepted as a Bodhisattva in Buddhism. This is important because historians are not clear as to what his religious belief was.

Guan Yu is a celebrated war general, and he always wins a war until towards the end of his life. He was part of the ruling dynasty, but towards the end he notice that his leader is becoming selfish and goes to war not because it is the last resort but he simply wants to conquer more lands and wealth. He decided to break away and vowed to protect the weak. He became a minority, and it is said that in the last war he went to he already knew that he and his troops are going to be betrayed and that he will die, he figured this out when an oracle was done, something that is usually done during his time. They usually consult either a Taoist oracle or a Buddhist oracle to determine whether they should go to war. The oracle showed that he will lose the war and that he will die, but he has to go to this war for a long term good. So he went to war and true enough he and his family and closest friends were betrayed and they were captured.

His ‘archenemy’ who used to be his leader has great respect for him that he refused to kill Guan Yu, something that was totally unacceptable during those times. Not killing Guan Yu is a sign of great weakness and will render him a coward and a lame leader. To avoid killing Guan Yu and simply make him a prisoner for life he has show the people is of poor moral and a scum that needs to suffer imprisonment for the rest of his life.

As a ploy he decided to put Guan Yu in a cell full of women. Unverified stories states that Guan Yu was put amongst the wives and daughter of his friends. But Guan Yun didn’t give in to carnal desires instead he made sure that he became protector of said women. Seeing that this ploy didn’t worked. Guan Yu was then transferred to a better prison and he was imprisoned with naked virgin courtesans and was given permission to deflower them, still Guan Yu didn’t give in to carnal desire, instead he took time out too teach them to read. At the end, he was reluctantly sent to his death. kuna kong

Verified reports states that several weeks before his death, his consciousness would always appear to a monk. And he would ask him to read different sutras so that he will reach enlightenment. This is an important factor in the story and is largely the reason why he became a Bodhisattva. The question is whether his Bodhisattvahood was largely due to a testimony of a single monk? The answer is no, because while the testimony of this monk was the one that is largely popular, there are other numerous both verified and unverified reports that says that before his death his consciousness would appear to different monks to ask for a sutra reading. Also, all these monks so a vision that Guan Yu received enlightenment. In fact, some of these testimonies where not found out until the death of some the monks who saw these visions, for they were never shared but written in their testimonies or orally shared to their students or disciples.

In my last post, I already made mention of the fact that Kuan Kong or Sangharama Bodhisattva is a wealth god and a protector, however, what most people don’t know is, and I myself has temporarily forgotten about this is that he is also a Bodhisattva that helps safeguard marital relationships. This is because in his lifetime, Guan Yu, exhibited extreme loyalty and faithfulness to his wife. He never took on a concubine, or visited courtesan houses, although it was a norm during his time.

kuan kong pendantTo honor and pay homage to Sangharama Bodhisattva, it is highly recommended for you to get his image. Please choose the one that has a beautiful fierce face. Wearing a pendant of his image is also highly recommended. I myself decided to get more Kuan Kong pendant, and of course, Kuan Kong or Sangharama Bodhisattva is one of the Bodhisattva that I featured in my Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant.
