Give a little and gain a mountain?



A Buddhist disciple had called a master on the phone and complained,
"I have worked hard and still not achieved much, why?  I have chanted mantra and done good deeds, but my destiny has not changed."
一位佛友電話抱怨道:為什麼我努力了還是得不到?念經行善了,命運卻不變?

Master: "Let me give you $500, is this OK?"
法師:我給你寄五百塊錢,好不好?

Disciple:  "Master, I dare not take your money!"
佛友:師父,你的錢我不敢要呢!

Master:  "I want you to help me do one thing."
法師:我是要你幫我辦一件事。

Disciple: "Master, tell me what you want and I will absolutely do it perfectly for you!"
佛友:師父,你說辦什麼,我絕對幫你辦好!

Master:  "Please buy a car for me."

法師:幫我買一輛汽車。

Disciple (surprisingly):  "Master, you cannot buy a car with $500!"

佛友(驚呀地):師父,五百塊怎麼能買到汽車呢?!

Master:  "You also know one cannot get a car for $500?"
法師:你知道五百塊買不到汽車?!


Revelation:
There are many people in this world trying to give a little to get a lot in return.  Obviously, this is not quite possible.
啟 示:
世上有太多的人都在絞盡腦汁,只想付出一點點,就得到很多。而這,顯然是不太可能的

Ken's comment:  This story is applicable to any religion or even events.  For example, someone admires the income of a medical doctor but does not have the patience or put in the effort needed to go through many years of medical school training.  I have some people pleading for spiritual help but are not willing to put in the time and effort to get them out of their predicament.  They want instant good luck with little effort or simply hearing good news.  The universe is fair (in the long run).  You get what you put in.

Two easy ways to enhance your luck

Today is your lucky day because I will show you two easy and free ways of enhancing your luck.

I was shopping at a department store today.  While reading the label of a merchandise, a feeble voice seemed talking to me.

I was amazed to find a 90+ old gentleman standing in front of me.  He saw me in a state of bewilderment because I was not sure if he talked to me.  He said, "I just want to talk to you."

Maybe I look funny with a pony tail.

To my surprise, there was another 90+ years old woman walking in front of him.  Both just has a walking cane though looked frail.  It is rare to have a 90+ years old couple walking unassisted together.  I suddenly feel great joy and lucky seeing this couple.

"In traditional China, anyone over 80 is considered god.  You two are gods to me.  Can I shake your hand?"  I told the old gentleman.

The couple smiled and had shaken my hand.  They walked away happily.

Traditional Chinese believes children under 6 (especially babies) and people over 80 are "gods".  Children under 6 are not yet "socialized" or conditioned to secular beliefs that block their sixth sense and spirits.  Their "spiritual eye" (the ability to sense spirits/energy) may still function.  Their souls or "spirit" or aura are stronger and purer than adults.   Hence, hugging or holding babies and young kids could could activate your potentials and enhance your energy, spirit, health and luck.   This luck enhancing trick is called "touching aura" (沾灵气).

People over 80 have endured the "wheels" of time and "absorbed" the essence or energies of the sun and moon.  Living through 80+ years is also a sign of blessing and longevity.  Touching the hands of these old folks can bring us good energy and luck.  This luck enhancing trick is called "accumulating blessing" (聚福气).

The easiest way to touch many old folks is to visit homes for the senior.

Go out and touch someone 80 years or older!

Quick astrology reading of royal baby Sussex

Royal baby Sussex was born today at 5:26 (May 6, 2019).  This is his Bazi chart:

Click picture to enlarge





This is a quick Bazi reading of this royal baby chart with minimal explanations:

1.  This baby boy is a "follow offspring" Gui-water daymaster (DM, the chart owner).  His father Prince Harry is a strong Ren-water DM and mother is a strong Jia-wood DM.  Favorable elements are non-supporting elements-- wood, fire and earth.  Unfavorable elements are water and metal.

2.  Chart has strong wood or +output (shang-guan or performing talent) elements.  DM will likely be in performing arts career or an artist like his mother.  He is smart and kind (water stands for intelligence and wood for kindness).

3.  Chart has 3 out of 4 traveling horse elements (yin, shen, si and hai).  He cannot sit still and will move a lot.

4.  Day-branch or spouse palace sits a peach-blossom mao-wood element and is favorable.  He will have a pretty and helpful wife.

5.  Resource (geng-metal) or mother star is very weak, hidden and in void branch.  He is likely not have close relationship with parents (month branch parental palace si-fire is in void).

6.  First 4 and half 10-years-luck periods are all favorable.  DM will enjoy good fame and wealth during these periods.  Below average luck will come after 2064.

7.  In 2064 jia-shen year and jia-zi 10-year-luck period (2059-2068), when DM is 46, luck periods will form a yin-si-shen 3-penalties.  This may likely jinx his mother more than his father.  Mother's chart also shows something serious may happen to her that year.

8.  In 2065 yi-you year and jia-zi 10-year-luck period (2059-2068), you-metal will clash mao-wood in spouse palace and zi-water will penalize mao-wood too.  This is a signal of sex scandal resulting in separation with spouse.

9.  His luck from 2059-2088 will not be as smooth as the first 40 years of his luck, but he will manage to survive.  But when 2089 xin-you 10-year-luck arrives, life will be very tough for him because his "follow offspring" profile will be broken.

10.  Likely health issues are skin/ digestive issues, followed by kidney or heart problems.

11.  Overall, this is a great chart.

One Pillar Bazi: Marriage Prediction

Today is your lucky day!  After reading this post, you can predict one's marriage life in general without knowing much about Bazi. 

Here are the step by step procedures:
1.   Use the birthday the person and convert it into a Bazi natal chart with 4 columns.  Each column is called a "pillar".  Our focus is on the day-pillar (see Appendix below for simple procedures to do it). 
2.  Write down the name of the day pillar from the Bazi-Calculator output (see Appendix).  In the Appendix below the example day pillar is geng-shen.
3.  Match the entries below and read explanations.

KEY TO DAY-PILLAR AND MARITAL BLISS
Day-pillar consists of two parts.  The upper part is the day-stem or daymaster which represents the chart owner.  Lower part is the day-branch or "spouse palace".  It represents the spouse of the daymaster (DM).  This method checks which star occupies the spouse palace to determine marital bliss of the chart owner.

1.  Great and happy marriage for male daymaster with wealth star (zheng-cai/ pian-cai) in  day-branch (spouse palace).  Wealth star stands for wife for a male DM. If wealth star is favorable, the male may get wealth from wife or her family.  If DM is a female, the marriage is also above average because wealth star nurtures power star (husband star for female).  There are eight day-pillars in this category:
-- yi-chou, yi-wei, bing-shen, ding-you, wu-zi, ji-hai, geng-yin and ren-wu.

2.  Great and happy marriage for female daymaster with power star (zheng-guan/ qi-sha) in day-branch (spouse palace).  Power star stands for husband for a female DM. If power star is favorable, the husband is famous with high status.  If DM is a male, the marriage is also above average if he is a strong DM.  There are eight day-pillars in this category:
-- jia-shen, yi-you, ding-hai, ji-mao, geng-wu, xin-si, gui-chou and gui-wei. 

3.  Good and happy marriage for female daymaster with resource star (zheng-yin/ pian-yin) in day-branch (spouse palace).  Resource star stands for mother or older generation.  Resource star in spouse palace means spouse nurturing DM.  Hence it will be a happy and blissful marriage for both male and female DM. There are twelve day-pillars for this category:-- jia-zi, yi-hai, bing-yin, ding-mao, wu-wu, ji-si, geng-chen, geng-xu, xin-chou, xin-wei and ren-shen.

4.  Different outcomes for female and male daymaster with output star (shang-guan/ shi-shen) in day-branch (spouse palace).  Output star nurtures wealth star (wife for male DM).  Output star is favorable when DM is strong.  Hence for strong male DM with output star in spouse palace will have an above average marriage but poor relationship if this male DM is weak.  Output star hurts power star (husband for female DM).  Hence, marital relationship will be bad if female DM has output star sitting in spouse palace.  There are nine day-pillars in this category:
-- jia-wu, yi-si, bing-chen, bing-xu, ji-you, geng-zi, xin-hai, ren-yin and gui-mao.

5.  High divorce rate for both female and male daymasters with peer star (bi-jian/ jie-cai) in day-branch (spouse palace).  Peer star controls or "snatches" wealth star (wife for male DM) and drains power star (husband for female DM).  Hence people with this peer star in spouse palace have higher divorce rate.  There are twelve day-pillars for this category:
-- jia-yin, yi-mao, bing-wu, ding-si, wu-xu, ji-wei, ji-chou, geng-shen, xin-you, ren-zi and gui-hai.

6.  Incorrect yin-yang days are inauspicious for marriage.  Both male and female born in these days will remarry.  There are 12 "Incorrect yin-yang days" (阴阳差错日):
--  bing-zi, ding-chou, wu-yin, xin-mao, ren-chen, gui-si, bing-wu, ding-wei, wu-shen, xin-you, ren-xu and gui-hai. 

7.  This two day-pillars jinx spouse:  jia-chen and ji-xu


Appendix:  How to find the day-branch of a person
1.  Go to http://bazi-calculator.com/
2.  Type in the birthday and gender (F or M) in the input table in the left side.
3.  Click "CALCULATE" box
4.  Check the left color table below the input table.  See the example here:
5.  The third color column (counting from right to left) is the day branch of the person.  It is "Geng-shen" in this example of someone born in June 24, 1990.

Will you get both wealth and love in 2019?

"When will you get both wealth and love at the same time?" is one of the chapters in my upcoming "Wealth Bazi" course (NOT a get-rich-quick course).  In that chapter, I have used the Bazi features of people who will likely get both love and wealth in 2019 ji-hai year as illustration.  I have extracted some of the contents below for this blog.

Many people fantasies getting both love and wealth through romance or marriage.  But the harsh reality is that not everyone is equipped to get wealthy and love through romance EVEN for those with pretty or handsome faces.  We have to look into the romance or peach blossom elements in their Bazi charts first.  In other words, it is already written in one's destiny.

This chapter answers the question of when one is likely to get both love and wealth.  Below are the specific timing and conditions (we use 2019 ji-hai year as example, you may figure out the rest by substituting different daymaster (DM) and annual lucks).   For Bazi terminology convention used here, check:
http://kenlaifengshui.blogspot.com/2011/05/4p-bazi-terminology-conventions.html

PEOPLE WHO ARE LIKELY TO GET LOVE AND WEALTH IN 2019
1.  Male who is a strong jia/ yi-wood or wu/ ji-earth DM and also in strong wealth (zheng-cai/ pian-cai) luck region, will likely get both love and wealth.

2.  Female who is a strong ren/ gui-water or bing/ ding-fire DM and also in strong power (zheng-guan/ qi-sha) luck region, will likely getting both love and wealth. 

3.  Jia-wood male DM combines with ji-earth in 2019 (ji-hai).  Ding-fire female DM combines with ren-water +power star (hidden in hai).  Ji-earth female DM combines with jia-wood +power star (hidden in hai).  These combinations with annual wealth and power luck reflect potentials for getting both wealth and love for the DM.

4.  For 2019 ji-hai year, ji-hai is the strong output annual luck for bing, ding, geng and xin DMs.  These DMs are likely to have "getting both love and wealth" events if they have strong output stars in their natal chart already.

5.  For 2019 ji-hai year, charts with mao, wei, yin, zi, chou and wu in the branches, are likely to have "wealth and love" events due to combination/s with annual luck branch  (Note: hai-mao-wei wood 3-unities, yin-hai combination, hai-zi-chou water 3-meetings, hai-wu hidden combination).

(Original chapter has more detailed explanations) 

FINAL REMARKS
While one's chart may look getting "both love and wealth", one still needs to check if power star (as in female DM) or wealth star (for male) is favorable to him or her.  If favorable, everything will be great and happy.  If not, it could mean losing wealth for male DM and being implicated/ hurt emotionally/ physically by males for female DM.

Heaven can wait, but you can't

".... in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes."
— Benjamin Franklin

"Death is a topic that most people avoid talking about.  First edition of this date-selection course had no coverage of burial.  A few years later a table on when to do burial is added.  Not until last year (2018) when there were two cases of a friend's family had 2 inter-generational deaths within a month, had alarmed me about the importance of date-selection for burial.  I had the burial data of only one of the two cases.  What had happened was the first burial date had clashed a family member's animal sign. That person had died of a sudden brain hemorrhage in a few weeks. 

Burial and funeral date-selection are a huge topic within date-selection which would take a few months to learn.  In this chapter, the goal is not finding the best dates and location for burial because this requires extensive Bazi and Feng Shui knowledge.  The simple goal is to AVOID using the most negative days for burial.  It is more for the safety of the surviving relatives of the deceased than enhancing prosperity.  No negative event happened to your client is as good as not losing money (and lives) for him/ her." 

The above paragraphs are the introduction of a new chapter on funeral added in my "Practical Date-selection Methods" course.  No one can escape choosing a date for funeral eventually.  My goal is to prevent deaths due to inauspicious date-selection of funeral dates.  I know not everyone can afford my course or hire a Feng Shui master to do the selection for them.  Hence I put the summary of this chapter on funeral date-selection here: 

For the deceased:
* Do not choose a funeral/ burial day that clash the animal sign of the deceased
* Do not choose a funeral/ burial day that clash the day-pillar of the deceased
* Do not bury the deceased in the sitting mountain of the deceased animal sign 

For the living close relatives of the deceased 
* Do not use a funeral/ burial day that clash the animal sign of any close relative
* Do not use the Month Breaker day月破日
* Do not use the Double Deaths day重喪日
* Do not use the Triple Deaths day 喪日 

If you are interested in the 2019 Edition of "Practical Date-selection Methods", here is the link for the latest details:
http://isfengshui.blogspot.com/2015/11/practical-date-selection-methods.html

New chapters added for 2019 edition are:
1.  "Marriage: Proposal, engagement, wedding and bed setting"
2.  "144 animal signs combinations: Marriage date-selection based on couples' animal signs"
3.  "Departure: Funeral and burial"
4.  "Quality control: Critical final inspection of the date selected"

Course fee is US$849, mention where you see this blog post get you $50 off from the $849 listed price (expires in 4/30/2019).

Easy Feng Shui fixes for bad luck

When life and things are great, people often think that the good life is "normal" and will last forever.   But Life is like a roller-coaster with many ups and downs. What goes up will go down someday.  

Without bad luck, there would be no good luck to contrast.  Sooner or later bad luck will catch up with anyone.

How do you know you are in a bad luck period?  Beside getting a Bazi reading, check the following list to see if you are in bad luck now:
  1. Poor sleep or insomnia; nightmares or strange dreams
  2. Eyelids tickling or ringing ears
  3. Unstable emotion, easily irritated , throwing tantrums
  4. Minor illness, pimples or swellings grow on face
  5. Confusing mind and thought, unable to quiet down to think
  6. Poor interpersonal relationship with relatives, friends and coworkers
  7. Running into obstacles when doing anything.  Daily chores that are used to be a breeze are difficult to do well now.
  8. Sudden breaking of everyday utensils, light bulbs, flooding, leaking pipes, machines or electronics.
  9. Losing money and wealth without knowing the reason behind.   
  10. Minor traffic accidents or car damages/ scratches

Zen and Self-Penalty

I get the following story from the web about a conversation between a venerable monk and a woman.  The original is in Chinese.  I translate it here: 

一位女士不停地述說自己的苦難,沒完沒了。
 A woman had been talking non-stop about her suffering and grievance. 

法師打斷她的話說:你的苦還真多呀!
The master had interrupted her, "You really have lots of suffering!"

女士:別人訴苦最多需要三天三夜,我訴苦需要三年! 
 Woman:    Other people may at most take 3 days and nights, my grievance needs 3 years to spell out!

法師:那是什麼時候的苦? 
Master:   When did your sufferings occur? 

女士:前幾年。
Woman:   Within the last few years.

法師:那不是過去了嗎?為什麼還緊抓不放呢?(停了一下)你拉出的糞便臭不臭? 
 Master:   Were these sufferings already passed?  Why do you still hold on to these sufferings?  (Paused).  Do the feces of your bowel movement smell?  

女士:當然很臭啦!
Woman:  Of course, very smelly!

法師:現在糞便在哪裡呢? 
 Master:  Where are your feces now?

女士:拉完就沖掉了。
Woman:  I had flushed them away after I was done.

法師:為什麼不把它包起來放在身上?見到人就拿出來告訴別人,說我被這東西臭過? 
Master:   Why don't you wrap your feces up and carry with you?   Then show and tell anyone you meet that you were smoked by these feces.   

士:那多惡心!
 Woman:   This is nauseating!

法師:對呀!苦難也是一樣,它已經過去了。回憶和訴苦就如同把糞便拿出來向人展示,既臭自己又臭別人!越訴苦越苦,越抱怨越怨。
 Master:   Exactly!  Sufferings and grievance are similar.  They had already passed.   Recollection and grieving about them are similar to showing your feces to people--  smelly to other people and yourself .  You suffer more when you recollect your past suffering.  You grieve more when you talk about your past grievance.

The story above illustrates the Bazi concept of "self-penalty"-- people's tendency to relive their grievance and suffering by talking and thinking about their unpleasant experience repeatedly.  People who listen to their grievance also suffer from this self-penalty like second-hand smoking.  We may call this "second hand penalty".

Psychologists and psychiatrists like self-penalty because they get paid US$200+ per hour here to listen to people's grievance.

Averting or Deflecting Misfortune and Disaster

During my Grand Duke Talisman charity drive in last January, a couple from the Philippines sent me this order (all names and city are renamed for privacy reason):

Dear Sir, 

I would like to order two Grand Duke talismans for 2019. One is for myself and the other for a friend. We are currently both not employed but do what we can to rescue cats from the streets. Hopefully 2019 will be kinder to us and our rescue kitties. 

Attached is the receipt of the donation. 

Thank you in advance! 

Best, 
Susan
**********
Below is my reply to this couple:

You volunteer work for stray cat rescue is good enough for the talisman (no donation needed).  So I give you an extra talisman to help you with job-seeking.  You may print it out in any size (business card size or bigger size) and carry with you (similar to the instruction listed for Grand Duke).

**********
The extra talisman that I had sent is the Lotus Guru Padmasambhava Mantra Wheel.  Usually I offer this talisman to my relatives and students only.  It offers protection from negative annual luck, astrological events and removes misfortunes and obstacles.

Last week, I have received a surprise email from this couple:

Dear Ken, 

In January you gave us a gift of the Mantra Wheel. This is to let you know how it has saved us twice this month. 

About two weeks ago Rick was on his bicycle at around 10pm. He was on a main road in the business district of Main City. As he was approaching an intersection two dump trucks came rushing past him on his left side. The first one cut in front of him to make a right turn at the intersection barely missing him. Luckily he was able to swerve to the right as the second dump truck came rushing past him too. He was shaken but unharmed. He said that if he didn't swerve the truck would have run over him. It was a close call. And the trucks didn't stop at all. Rick carries the Mantra Wheel in his wallet at all times. 

Some of the homeless cats rescued
The second incident happened two nights ago. We were watching TV and once or twice we would get a whiff of burning rubber. It wasn't strong so we thought it was coming from the outside. Checked outside and nothing there to account for the smell. Back inside one of my cats laid down on top of the DVDs player. As Rick picked her up he noticed the smell of burning rubber was stronger in that area. I immediately turned off the TV and player. We found out that the plug of the DVD had a broken prong and the rubber insulation was melting. It's a good thing we discovered it on time. If it had lasted longer I am almost sure it would cause a short circuit or even a fire. The Mantra Wheel is displayed on a shelf in the room where the TV is in. Thank goodness Coco the kitty decided to lie down on the DVD when she did. 

In both instances, carrying and displaying the Mantra Wheel has saved us from misfortune. And it's worked so quickly. 

I can't thank you enough for your kindness! The Mantra Wheel saved us twice already. What a blessing!

Thank you again for giving us the Mantra Wheel. Bless you, Ken! 

Hugs,
Susan

*********
While I believe the Lotus Guru talisman may have helped averting their misfortunes, I think what they have been doing-- saving the lives of homeless cats helps more in saving Rick's life and their house.

This incident illustrates one of the most effective methods of deflecting misfortunes is saving lives of any living things.  This couple has rescued 12 homeless cats so far.  Hence, if any astrological reading predicts you have an upcoming "obstacle" or major misfortune, saving a life is an effective way to averting it.  Yes, it is difficult to have the opportunity of saving human lives, but saving animal lives like cats and dogs are easier to accomplish.

Some of you may want the Lotus Guru Mantra Wheel talisman for protection For a donation of US$30 (or US$5 if you are unemployed or cannot afford US$30) to your local Animal Humane or Welfare agency (or any charity that reduces human suffering), I will email you a  Lotus Guru talisman consecrated and blessed in your name.  DO NOT SEND MONEY TO ME.  Send it directly to your favorite charity.  Your donation "activates" this talisman.  This limited offer is good till April 30, 2019 and will not be offered again.

Email your order and proof of donation to:  kenlai88@yahoo.com

Another Approach to Self-penalties

Previous post derives self-penalties by matching branch 3-unities (San-he) to 3-meetings (San-hui).  This post uses branch groups to locate self-penalties.

Classic Bazi segregates 12 branch elements into 3 groups:

4 cardinal or peach-blossom elements
--  zi, wu, mao and you
4 sub-cardinal or traveling horses elements
--  yin, shen, si and hai
4 storage or tomb elements 
--  chen, xu, chou and wei 

From the above, we have 3-penalties
  1. zi-mao penalty
  2. yin-shen-si 3-penalties
  3. xu-chou-wei 3-penalties

The branch elements that are missing in these 3-penalties actions become self-penalty when running into identical element.  

Self-Penalties:
  • Chen-chen
  • You-you
  • Wu-wu
  • Hai-hai

Don't overlook the destructive power and influence of self-penalty.  It could be as serious as other penalties.  Out of the 4 self-penalties, wu, you and hai self-penalties are most serious because:

  • Wu-fire is the yang-knife (羊刃) of bing-fire
  • You-metal  is the yang-knife of geng-metal
  • Hai-water is the yang-knife of gui-water 

Self-penalty becomes serious matter when the corresponding stem showing up in the stem level, especially if the stem is also the daymaster (DM).

Self-penalty could mean:
  • self-inflicted pain/ injury
  • self-sabotage 
  • addiction
  • depression
  • worrisome
  • meddlesome
  • petty
  • cannot let go of trivial matters
