Ah Ling is an operational manager in a renowned hotel in
George Town. Although she seldom reviews her secret of her fellow workers;
people who know her well know that Ah Ling is a psychic as she has psychic
vision. Local Chinese call this type of people as ‘yin yang eyes’ (阴阳眼).
I like to chat with Ah Ling concerning her experiences with
spiritual world during the 7th lunar month or more commonly known as 'ghost month'.
It is normally at ghost month that Ah Ling will pay me a visit to ask for some
'fu' (符). Unlike normal folks who
only ask for one talisman; Ah Ling normally asks for two dozen pieces of talismans!
It was about this time that Ah Ling paid me a visit. So I
asked her some of her experiences during ghost months to be posted in my blog.
According to Ah Ling she routinely sees many ghosts in the
hotel she served in. However, it is during the ghost month that the hotel is ‘full
house’ just as if our normal holiday seasons. The more offerings people made
along the street, more ghostly crowd will enter the hotel.
Some of the ghosts will go into rooms along with hotel
guests, some of them just leaned against wall at a corner while some of these
ghostly brothers and sisters just squat beside the walls waiting for offering
sessions held by local communities. These offering sessions are normally held
in the evenings or nights.
Ah Ling said that due to her duty, she cannot avoid going
rounds the hotel to supervise her staffs. At many times she bumps into ghosts
and these spirits just entered and possessed her body intentionally or unintentionally.
The intentional possessions are mainly due to ghosts wanted her help to contact
their living relatives to ask for favours or offerings.
As recalled by Ah Ling, it was during last ghost month that
the spirit of her late father-in-law suddenly possessed her body while she was
doing her paper work in her office. With only 70% of her consciousness being
controlled by the spirit, she couldn’t help but to call up her hubby to pass an
The most favourite locations in the hotel is the hotel
kitchen, bar and restaurant. Ah Ling said the spirits like the smell of
tobaccos, alcohol and hot steamy foods. She naturally would try all possible
ways to visit these places especially the restaurant. The reason is that Ah
Ling couldn’t stop staring at ghosts licking hotel guests’ sirloin steak with
their long and slimy tongue and those people just continue to consume those
yummy steaks! What else is more disgusting than that may I ask?
Perhaps Ah Ling is having bad lucks due to her special
abilities. Whatever case this may be, I do enjoy listening to her yearly ghostly
An occultist has many reasons to enter a jungle. Perhaps
he/she wanted to meditate to increase his/her power, perhaps this person wanted
to collect rare herbs or perhaps he/she wanted to summon a powerful jungle
spirit to his/her service. Whatever reasons this magician has, a jungle is a
dangerous place to enter.
Not only a jungle is full of fierce and poisonous flora and
fauna; certain landscape such as ravines, holes, swamps and poisonous gaseous
etc. may cause injuries if one is not careful. I am no expert in jungle
survival but I have collected some knowhow when in a jungle.
·One should study the weather patterns beforehand
to decide if it is the best time to go into a jungle.
·On arrival to the entrance of the jungle, stop
and look at afar. If there is thick fog, go back and come another day.
·Offer some tobacco, pop rice, betel leaves and
benzoic incense to the watcher of the jungle. (This will save the magician
plenty of problems, believe it or not?)
·Bring light and high energy foods to reduce your
load. Previously people bring yam or amorphophallus konjac made foods as these
foods are very filling and easy to carry. Now days, we can find high energy
foods in shops selling camping gears.
In the jungle:
·A tropic jungle is full of poisonous snakes so
one should carry some snake poison antidotes and some kaffir limes. All magical
traditions will have a set of snake medicines.
·The kaffir limes is used to prevent any snakes
from entering a magician’s resting place. This is done by cutting a kaffir lime
into 4 pieces and put the lime sections at four corners of the magician’s camp.
·Insects are problems at night, so one should
take 3 pieces of red chillies, slit it lengthwise and then hang the chillies
over a candle or fire flame. That will drive away flying insects at night.
·Bring some salts to remove leeches and to reduce
itchiness caused by bamboo hairs.
·The worse scenario one will come across is to
step into an underground beehive. The stings of these tiger head hornets are
lethal. So a serious jungle hiker would bring a piece of thick canvas of some
kind just in case. However in the event of emergency and nothing to cover, one
should lie flat face down on the ground and recite:
call upon mountain gods and local earth gods, come immediately from all 8 directions
and assist me. Come on your auspicious clouds, help me in distress. Drive away
these hornets. As my will, so mote it be!"
·Missing in the jungle:
oIn case of one has lost one's way, the common
method is walk downwards to find water source and not to walk upwards where
many people have made a mistake and lost their lives.
oFor magicians with guardian spirits, he/she can
call upon his/her spirits or use the kuji-kiri mudra to find his/way out. The
spirits will not fail their masters.
·On returning from the jungle, one should ideally
perform a ritual or flower bath to wash away any energy or entities attached to
The best choice is of course not to enter a jungle alone and
without the knowledge of anyone. The above pointers are just something fun to
read about however.
Many professional ladies and gentlemen who worship Phra Ngan
for more 10 years came to me complaining about problems with their family,
work, finance and even court cases. All of them have this doubt: Why didn’t
Phra Ngan protect them all the while they gave good care to Ngan?
This troubled me for a while but finally I found the answer.
This must be due to the professions these folks engage in.
Well, a professional would most likely a salary earner or
who is performing legal businesses. In Astrology terms, standard professions
belonged to ‘proper business’ (正官).
Their income would be 'proper income' (正财)
and that their authority is 'proper authority' (正印). With these three factors, a professional should
be a law abiding citizen.
Phra Ngan belongs to 'side business' (偏官), 'side income' (偏才) and illegal authority (偏印). So if a law abiding person worships Phra Ngan,
this Ngan will change his/her character to 'side ways'. If this is the case and
the person changes accordingly; so be it. I am not judging if the change of
character will be good in this case.
I know that many of these professional ladies and gentlemen
make use of Phra Ngan to gain favours from opposite sex such as money, promotion
or personal favours. Such actions is contrary to their 'proper business' as
such whatever given by Phra Ngan will eventually have to be vomited out
eventually. If this person is in 'side business' then this would not be a
A lady who is the personal secretary of a MNC director came
to me complaining that her bosses wanted to sue her for what they have given to
her. She asked me why her Phra Ngan didn’t protect her and she has worshipped
Ngan for 10 years. I merely look at her and asked: “Did you sleep with all your
The answer is of course a big ‘NO’. It will be over this
lady’s dead body to have done so as her character is too hard to yield to
anyone. Had she really slept with all her bosses, then she would not face all
those court cases now days. And why is that if you may ask?
Well, we must know Phra Ngan is a ‘sex machine’, so other
than an offering of liquor, ‘sex’ is also a must and that is where the Phra
Ngan is energized and become more active. If this secretary was also a social
escort and didn’t mind to sleep with others, she will be a happy rich lady by
It is too late to change anything for this secretary… Perhaps
she cares to try the Phi Phop or the ‘banana spirit’? That too will present
another problem… Hahaha..
“The Trāyastriṃśa heaven
is an important world of the devas in Buddhist cosmology. The word trāyastriṃśa
is an adjective formed from the numeral trayastriṃśat, "33" and can
be translated in English as "belonging to the thirty-three [devas]".
It is primarily the name of the second heaven in Buddhist cosmology, and
secondarily used of the devas who dwell there.
heaven is the second of the heavens of the Kāmadhātu (欲界), and the highest of the
heavens that maintains a physical connection with the rest of the world.
Trāyastriṃśa is located on the peak of Sumeru (須彌山). This heaven is somehow comparable
to the Greek Olympus in some respects.
"thirty-three" in the name of the heaven is not an enumeration of the
gods who live there (there are far more) but a general term inherited from
Vedic mythology, implying "the whole pantheon of gods". Hindu
mythology provides a full list (with some variations) of thirty-three named
deities, but it is inconsistent with the Buddhist conception and mythology of
Not many people are aware that Mountain Lu Taoism (闾山教) has a practice aimed at
gaining supernatural power. This practice is known as “The Sutra Of 33 Heaven”.
One must first memorize the below sutra by heart:
(Prostration to the 33
heavenly sutras coupled with meditation in the mountain, my dharma reaches to
heaven. The armies of gods travels through earth, I am following the order of
Buddha. I am training generals and soldiers of gods, the stars, 36 fierce
armies heed my orders! I have a golden pagoda on my head, five elementals trained
my body. I am practising 5 types of sutras at noon and midnight, the fire god
is accompanying me. His fire entered my mouth and transformed me to an
immortal. My breath turns into sword and movement causes the stones to be blown
away. Heavenly generals are on my left, heavenly soldiers are on my right, I am
reciting the heavenly sutras and dharma from all 5 palaces comes to me. Now the
5 thunders strike, the heavenly soldiers descended. I am transforming into
millions of heavenly soldiers. My soul is hidden inside 10,000miles of mountain
ranges; no one can see or find me because I am using the formula of black
heaven! I am following the dharma of Mountain Lu and Amitabah Buddhaya, the octagon
protects me according to the order of Master Taoist! )
above sutra must be recited for 49 times between 9pm to 2am.
exercise must be performed for 49 consecutive nights.
the sutra recitation, one must meditate for at least 1 hour.
must keep all the information or messages from the spiritual world to him/her
as too many disclosures to a second party may cause his/her power to fade.
Last but not least, the practice to gain psychic power must
be treated with sincerity and caution. As a novice, we will not be able to
differentiate what types of spirits are present and many practitioners have
faced with serious problems during this type of training.
The beautiful but lethal Taoist Kali, the guru of Huangdi (黄帝); i.e. the ancestor of Chinese Han ethnic.
Goddess Kali is worshipped in India, Indochina and China by
people to gain magical power for revenge and destructions. Below is a Taoist
method to request the bestowment of power by Chinese Kali, or the ‘black maiden’.
She is better known as the ‘maiden of the nine heavens’ by Taoists.
The Taoist Kali looks more peaceful than the Hindu Kali and
she is also known as the goddess of war and destruction. So, I think both of
the goddesses are the same.
First, one must set up an altar for this black maiden. This
person must also avoid eating meat products and refrained from intimate acts.
When everything is readied, he/she need to recite the below mantra for 21 times
to 49 times once in the morning and once at night:
(She is the holy black
maiden who saves sentient beings from all ten directions; who heeds all
prayers; please fulfil all my requests. I am bestowed by the heaven to drive
thunders. As I am beloved by the heaven, my power is quickly bestowed within
the three religions and on the Earth. I am the strongest amongst all holy
beings and that the water cannot drown me, the fire cannot burn me. Now I break
the earth and summons the thunder of all 5 directions with a delay. According
to the seal of wind and fire, I am carrying out the order of the Taoist master!)
If one practices the above ritual for 49 consecutive days
then one will received psychic power of some kind… Some people will be bestowed
by sixth senses while others may be bestowed by astral travel or visions.
However, I cannot guarantee that everyone will be receiving magical powers as
each individual is different.
The term ‘power
of gods’ commonly used in Chinese culture generally refers to supernatural
power in the West, it is synonymous in Tantric practices as ‘siddhi’. The
common practices to gain these powers of gods are mainly meditation, fasting
and chanting mantras.
there are two ways to gain supernatural powers: gifted (果报) and trained (修炼).
folks obtained supernatural powers when they are born. People believe that it
is due to their previous accumulated merits and when the karmic fruits are
ripened (机缘), the power
manifests automatically in these gifted folks. However, these gifted powers are
not permanent. If these gifted psychics do not continue to practice or they use
their powers to swindle money and flirting around; then their power will also
fade accordingly. I have personally seen many of such cases and while lamenting
the lost of these psychics, nobody will ever trust them again. As the saying
“He prayed to the
heaven, the heaven kept silent.
He then prayed to the
mother earth, the earth doesn’t respond.
He turned to his
fellow members, no one heeds him.”
I would think that the psychic powers obtained through training are more
lasting than the gifted ones that behave as if loose cannons. Religions holistically
speaking, forbid followers to gain psychic powers with an exception. Taoism however, specifically trained to gain
psychic powers through rituals, mantras and talismans.
Buddhism, psychic powers should be treated as a byproduct of orthodox Buddhist training.
The reason why the Buddha rejects the practice of psychic power is that these
powers gained through many years of practices are not permanent. This
standpoint is generally stated in the Vajra Sutra (金刚经):
All worldly endeavors
are as if dreams and reflections on bubbles,
They are as if morning
dew and also lightning.
Hence, we should treat
(these efforts) as such.
collected some sort of training that perhaps may give the trainees some sort of
supernatural power and shall be sharing here in this blog later.
Over the years, I have had many opportunities to study the
fates of professionals, senior executives and the like for Singapore and
Malaysia. Many of them have very similar characteristics. Let me list them down
for your reference, chances are that you also fall under these groups or a
combination of few:
strong personal character
character of these folks is so strong that until any blessing rituals or
amulets have no effect on them. In another words, even ghosts are scared of
folks are normally either still single or have monetary problems.
will have aggressive personality that made them climbed up to corporate ladders
tend to hurt themselves and others.
who fall into this group will have multiple fatal attractions due to the fact
that they like to flirt a lot.
people tend to like the persons they shouldn’t.
age money crisis
people will face financial problems from 40 to 70.
are salary owners mainly and hence life is bored.
life for a start
is good during 20 to 40 years.
folks like to be bossy and like to be in control.
things to themselves
like to keep things to themselves hence they will be quite lonely during old
with boss or laws
of these people will have problems with their bosses or at least facing one or
two law suits.
If you feel that you have 4 out of the 8 points match your
character, especially the first one; then forget about using magic rituals or
amulets to gain career advancements. It is better to start a new business than to work under
I have to emphasize that fate characteristic for
businessmen/businesswomen and hawkers is total different. Remind me if you are

The flying star charts for year and months of 2014.
I was asked if a peace keeping troop will do any good at the
Well, the flying star system is a pretty reliable one, so
let’s have a look for the fun of it:
In 2014 and in the 8th period, Star 5 and 9 is at
the NW of Southeast Asia.
9 and 5 represent ‘the emperor’. However during July, August
and September 2014, this emperor is being disturbed and hurt by the star 3;
which means ‘war’ or unrest at the speed of ‘fiery thunder’ (aeroplanes down, missiles
down, artilleries down etc.)
Between August and September, the star 2 drops onto the NW
corner forming a combination of stars 2, 5 and 9; i.e. ‘death’ and ‘widows’.
So, any interference of forces between July to September 2014 would mean
The best time to send in troops would be in the mid of November
to the mid of December 2014 where these peacekeeping troops would be much
However, if the peacekeeping troop would move from South to
the North and back, then the peacekeepers would be going against the Yearly
Lord (太岁) and the 3 Kills (三煞) in the months of Nov and
Dec 2014 and also Jan 2015.
Looks like it would mean the peacekeepers from SEA would be
engaging in actual combat with folks in SE corner with casualties… Another
option is only sending peacekeepers from the West only. Perhaps that is an
indication of World-War III? Something to think about…
Zen Buddhism (禅宗)
is a branch of Buddhism spread by Bodhidharma in China during the Northern Wei
Dynasty (386-534). This branch of Buddhist practice advocates the method of ‘pointing
to one’s heart and hence realising one’s Buddha nature” (直指人心，见性成佛).
The Chinese scholars also praised Zen school as the other
teaching of Buddha:
"One that cannot be recorded, it is transmitted outside of
Now days, Zen is very popular in China, Japan, Korea and in
other part of the world. Zen is sometimes being practiced together with the
Pure Land School (净土宗). Some scholars like to relate the practice of Zen with
Dzongchen (大圆满) but I
think both of them are quite different.
While I was meditating in a Zen monastery, a Zen master came
to me and our conversation thus begun:
(He took a bow at me.)
Master: “Prostration to Lord Buddha!”
Me: “Which Buddha do you mean?”
Master: “There is only one Buddha shouldn’t you think so?”
Me: “You are a Buddha. All enlightened beings are Buddhas.”
Master: “Why then so many sentient beings are still
suffering in the cycle of reincarnations?”
Me: “They failed to see the true Buddha nature inside them (执迷不悟).”
Master: "Am I a Buddha?"
(I took a bow and kept on meditating without answering.)
(The master smiled, retreated and walked away...)
To me, Buddha is only a title similar to 'Guru'. There are
certainly many enlightened beings. The Buddha nature is inside everyone, i.e.
in you and me. These enlightened beings are certainly do not limit to Buddhism
However, if a talk is only a gibberish talk, then we call it
‘tongue in cheek’ (口头禅).
She suddenly barged into my way while I was walking with a social
escort back to our hotel after a night’s bar hopping. My social escort said
this lady was mad ever since the infamous Tsunami.
This lady attracted my attention as she kept repeating a
sentence in English:
“I mean you no harm… my body is still under the rubbles of a
hotel beside Patong Beach!”
So I stopped my path and asked the escort try to talk to the
mad lady on what she wanted.
After a while, the mad lady started to talk:
“I am from Yugoslavia
(now according to Wiki: Bosnia, Kosovo, Slovenia,
Montenegro, Macedonia, Croatia and Serbia) and my name is Michael Viki. I came
to Phuket on December 24th, 2004 with two friends. Our bodies are
still under rubbles of a hotel beside the Patong Beach. I mean no harm; I just
want to go home…”
I wanted to ask further, but my escort didn’t like the idea
and I was half dragged away from the scene as the crowd was slowly gathered to
see what was a tourist doing with a mad lady.
I supposed, incidents such as the above are no surprises
after major disasters where majority of those unlucky ones died of sudden and
violent death. Their mind cannot accept their horrible consequences that they
are already met their doom. Moreover, how can those supposedly merry making
folks who have planned for enjoying a joyous holiday but instead experienced a
one way ticket to the doom?
There are many ways to go about to create a major life
foundation (MLF). The below method is said to be originated from Master Lai
First and foremost, the location of life foundation shouldn’t
be too near a public graveyard or mass burial sites. It is also forbidden to
use a formal burial site or any places that are not ours. This is because there
are mountain spirits and earth spirits watching over places without any
There are five main ingredients for a successful major life
·The owner’s date and time of birth
oThe person’s astrology chart must first be
consulted to see if this person is suitable for a particular life force
foundation according to his/her needs.
·A suitable Feng Shui loction
oThis is the most important aspect of a
successful major life foundation as a true dragon knot will energize the owner
with earth energy for achieving the person’s desires:
§For health, wealth, free from law suits, for
oOf course, the prerequisite is that one must
know how to find a good dragon beforehand.
·The person’s personal effects
oHairs, fingernails, worn clothing or small
quantity of blood.
·Special blessing ritual
oIf the personal effects are not empowered, then
it will take a longer time for the chi of the earth to reach a person. Normal
process will be 1~2 years, but empowered ritual will speed up the process to 6
months or so.
·An auspicious date
oGood dates are pretty hard to come by but this
is not an option.
I have noticed that there is a simpler method to perform
major life foundation advocated by other Feng Shui masters. In this method, all
the clothing, hair, fingernails are put into an urn and then buried into the
ground. This method is not proper however as the owner will be prone to the
disturbance of wandering spirits.
For people who don’t want to DIY, please refer to the below
FS life foundation
talk can be arranged in Malaysia and Singapore if the number of enquiry is
sufficient or by special arrangements. As per norm, life foundation lots are
limited and allocation is based on first come first serve basis.
