The Feng Shui Direction For Mothers
Mother is a word use in various culture which can referred to an actual woman, the Earth itself or to the Mother Goddess. In Japan, the Mother Goddess is known as Amaterasu. In Greece, she is called Demeter and the Egyptian calls her Isis. The Tibetans refers to her as Tara and the Hindus calls her Shakti.
The earliest known tributes to mothers date back to the annual spring festival the Ancient Greeks dedicated to the great goddess Rhea, wife of Cronus and mother of the Olympians. Ceremonies in her honor began around 250 BC. In Chinese, the feng shui symbolism for mothers is known as KUN which represents the element of Earth. The Earth element belong to the Southwest sector.
To enhance for the luck of the Matriarch, the mother of the household, enhance the Southwest sector of the home with amethyst, rose quartz, or quartz crystal. Images and statues of the Goddess Kuan Yin, White Tara Goddess or Green Tara Goddess is excellent in this sector. However, please note that in 2013, the Southwest has the the 2 Illness Star which is an Earth star. Enhancing this area with too much Earth element is not ideal in 2013. To protect the Matriarch, the following cures can be place in the Southwest sector:
Maitreya Heart Shrine Relic Tour: A Once In A Lifetime Experience
A precious collection of sacred relics of the Buddha and many other Buddhist masters is currently touring the world. The Maitreya Project Heart Shrine Relic Tour is a collection of more than 1,000 sacred Buddhist relics. Many Buddhist masters from a number of traditions and countries, including Burma,Indonesia,Thailand, Tibet and Taiwan, have donated relics to the collection, including relics of Shakyamuni Buddha which were offered by His Holiness, the Dalai Lama.
This is a rare educational and spiritual opportunity to view these relics, which were found among the cremation ashes of Buddhist masters. They resemble beautiful, pearl-like crystals. Buddhists believe relics embody the master’s spiritual qualities of compassion and wisdom and are deliberately produced by the master at his death.
Visitors often report experiences of inspiration and healing when in the presence of the relics. While some are inspired to pray for world peace and to develop their inner wisdom, others are overcome by emotion as the powerful effects of the relics open their hearts to compassion and loving-kindness.
The relics are clearly visible inside display cases that encircle a life-size, golden statue of the Maitreya Buddha. Visitors may participate in a Blessing Ceremony where the relics of the Buddha are gently placed on the crown of the visitor’s head as a personal blessing.
According to Buddhist scriptures, Maitreya will be the next Buddha to bring teachings of loving-kindness to the world. Eventually, the relics will be enshrined in a 500-ft/152-m bronze statue of Maitreya Buddha that is being built in Kushinagar, northernIndia.
Maitreya Project puts the teachings of loving-kindness into action by:
- building the 500ft/152m Maitreya Buddha statue – a magnificent monument to loving-kindness intended to inspire people all across the world to think and act with kindness.
- providing, free of charge, spiritual, education and healthcare facilities in Kushinagar, Uttar Pradesh, one of the poorest areas in northern India.
- providing immediate and long-term employment.
- helping to develop the area’s infrastructure.
- serving as a focus and influence for sustainable, positive development in this emerging part of India.
“The very name ‘Maitreya’ means loving-kindness – in today’s world, we really need loving-kindness. This Project is really wonderful and is the result of great courage and determination, and from the depths of my heart I appreciate and applaud this wonderful project.”
– His Holiness the Dalai Lama
