Thanks to Taiwanese Master Wu Guo Bin for mentioning this Official Taoist Scripture for the Morning Chanting Ceremony - Huang Ting Jing (分場感謝吳國賓道長提及太上黃庭經﹐不然小道還未想起在此上貼此經與大眾分享).

Huang Ting Jing aka Tai Shang Huang Ting Jing (太上黃庭經), one of the Three Basic Taoist Scriptures that needed to be chant in the Morning Ceremony, but in South East Asia, this Scripture is always being neglected as there is an over-promoted of the other Scripture by other faiths - Tai Shang Gan Ying Pian (太上感應篇).

Huang Ting Jing explained about the Balancing of the Internal Body of Oneself, in-order to maintain a Balanced Body for Cultivation or to Attain a certain Level of "Immortality".

In the following is the Chinese introduction on Huang Ting Jing and in the attached is a PDF-copy of Huang Ting Jing, do feel free to go thru and start your self-learning on it:

《黃庭經》與《上清大洞真經》

《黃庭經》與《上清大洞真經》皆為道教上清經籙派的主要經典,最初分別出現於西晉和東晉,爾後在道教頗為盛行,道教茅山派尤重之

現傳《黃庭經》有三種,一為《太上黃庭外景玉經》,一為《太上黃庭內景玉經》,一為《太上黃庭中景玉經》。世傳《太上黃庭外景玉經》早出,始行於西晉,當時稱為《黃庭經》;東晉又出現了《太上黃庭內景玉經》,因此早出的《黃庭經》便改稱《太上黃庭外景玉經》,《外景》及《內景》以後也合稱《黃庭經》。另有《太上黃庭中景經》乃後人之作,宋鄭樵《通誌》中曾有著錄,《正統道藏》收有李千乘注本,但通常所說的《黃庭經》,並不包括《中景經》。

晉葛洪《抱朴子-遐覽篇》已著錄《黃庭經》。《列仙傳-朱璜傳》中有“與老君《黃庭經》,令曰讀三過”句,北宋歐陽修《刪正黃庭經-序》說:“有《黃庭經》石本者,乃永和十三年晉人所書”。又說:“世傳《黃庭經》者,魏晉間道士養生之書也”。按永和十三年後改升平元年(西元 357年)。所謂“晉人”,六朝以來多認為是王羲之。這表明《黃庭經》是西晉之前的作品。南北朝梁陶弘景《真誥》記東晉許長史(穆)自讀《黃庭》,許掾(玉斧)抄《黃庭》。陶弘景《真誥》提到的《黃庭》,皆指《黃庭內景經》法。迨至北宋歐陽修《集古錄跋尾-黃庭四首》說:

今《道藏》別有三十六章者,名曰《內景》,而謂此一篇為《外景》。又分上中下三部者,皆非也。蓋《內景》者,乃此一篇之義疏爾。又周必大《益公題跋》卷十一《題向鄉林家所藏山谷書南華玉篇》說

《黃庭外景》一篇,世傳魏晉時道家者流所作。自王逸少(王羲之)以來,高人勝士,皆善書之。此三十六篇,乃其義疏,名《內景》中,蓋養生之樞要也。

皆謂《外景》先出,《內景》出而《外景》之名乃立,《內景》乃《外景》之義疏。陶弘景提到許穆讀《黃庭內景》,這說明東晉已有《黃庭內景》行世。《外景》傳人為魏華存之師王褒,據唐釋道世《法苑珠林》烍六十九說:王褒曾撰《洞玄經》,則魏晉道士王褒便極可能是《外景》的作者。魏華存受《黃庭外景》於王褒,後秘傳弟子。又《外景》多談男子煉養之事,而《內景》則兼及女子煉養之術,極可能是女祭酒魏華存據《外景》傳本而草創《內景》,其後東晉楊羲得其秘典而增佈完成。

《黃庭經》傳本較多,歷代名人法帖中,晉王羲之,唐褚遂良﹑宋米蔽﹑黃庭堅都寫有帖傳世。《唐書-藝文誌》中《老子黃庭經》作一卷。《崇文總目》著錄《黃庭經》凡八種,《外景》三卷,不分章,或不分卷而作二十四章;《內景》不分卷,三十六章。現存最早之《黃庭經》包括《內景》﹑《外景》傳本為《雲笈七籤》中所收載梁丘子(中唐白履忠)和務成子的注本,《內景》分三十六章,名《上清黃庭內景經》;《外景》分為上﹑中﹑下三部名《太上黃庭外景經》

《黃庭經》是道教教義與醫學相柔合的養生﹑修真古籍,以七言韻語描述人體五官﹑五臟,六腑諸神,更推廣至全身八景神及二十四真之形象與作用,宣稱恆誦神名及存思諸神形象,可以消災袪病,不憚虎狼凶殘,臟腑安和,卻老延年,甚而升天登仙。道教以存思之術能通靈達神,洞觀自然,養精補氣,煉髓凝真,乘雲飛仙。《經》中雖隱括呼吸胎息﹑固精煉氣及符圖諸術,但在修煉術中仍以存思﹑存神為主要內容。為後世內丹理論的淵源。《外景》與《內景》雖主旨一致,但其文字風格及內容亦略有不同。《外景》文字簡明平易﹑詞清意暢,臟腑色象神名均較少;而《內景》則文字典奧隱深,對臟腑色象神名之描述甚為繁雜。所謂“黃庭三宮”,即上宮腦中,中宮心中,下宮脾宮。《外景》在煉養上較重腦﹑心;《內景》則較重脾胃。梁丘子《黃庭內景經注》說:

外指事,即天中人中地中。內指事,即腦中心中脾中,故曰黃庭。內者,心也。景者,象也。外象諭日月星辰雲霞之象,內象諭血肉筋骨臟腑之象也。心居身內,存一體之象色,故曰內景也。

《內景》重氣養精﹑存觀一象,在道教謂之“存神”;而《外景》則重存思外界自然之象,致神以內祐。

歷代道教煉養家均重視《黃庭經》,為該經作者不少,如金代的劉處玄,明代的陸西星,清代的李涵虛等都曾注過《黃庭》。後世道教全真派更以其作為講習功課之一。歷代文人學士亦頗重視《黃庭》,如唐李白詩中有:“山陽道士如相見,應視黃庭換白鵝”。宋陸游詩有:“白頭始悟頤生妙,盡在《黃庭》兩卷中。”

《上清大洞真經》簡稱《上清真經》﹑《大洞真經》,因全文分三十九章,故又稱《三十九章經》。此經為道教上清派經系之首經。出現於東晉哀帝興寧年間(西元364~365年),撰作者可能為楊羲。據陶弘景《真誥-敘錄》謂:

“伏尋《上清經》出世之源,始於晉哀帝興寧二年太歲甲子,紫虛元君上真司命南嶽魏夫人下降,授弟子瑯琊王司徒公府舍人楊羲,使作隸字寫出,以傳護軍長史句容許某並其弟三息上計掾某某。二許又更起寫,修行得道。凡三君手書,今見在世者,經傳大小十餘篇多掾寫,真受四十餘卷多楊書”。

《大洞玉經》二卷,有符。其中《誦經玉訣》與《上清大洞真經》本稍異 。全部經文亦分三十九章,無存真法,有注人,末附龔德同跋語,云乃太玄趙真人注本。

《正統道藏》洞真部玉訣類收有《大洞真經註》兩種:

一﹑《玉清極總真文昌大洞仙經注》十卷,有圖,東蜀蓬萊山中陽子衛琪注。衛琪,元代人。

二﹑《玉清大洞真經玉訣首義》一卷,真靖大師陳景元撰。陳景元,北宋人。經文分三十九章,章次及名稱與洞真部本文類《上清大洞真經》相同,經文略有不同。

《正統道藏》太玄部《雲笈七籤》卷八《三洞經教部》中收有《釋三十九章》。此為北宋傳本。

上述《大洞真經》傳本,以陳景元撰《玉清大洞真經玉訣音義》中之經文,為現存傳本中最早的傳本經文。《上清大洞真經》六卷便淵源於北宋傳本,與《玉清大洞真經玉訣音義》所據傳本一致。

明《正統道藏》洞真部本文類收有三種《大洞真經》:

一﹑《太上極總真文昌大洞仙經》五卷,全文分三十九章,卷一有序,有云“乾道戊子”(即宋孝宗剜道四年西元1168年)﹑“景定甲子(即宋理宗景定五年,元世祖至元一年,西元1264年),故此為宋末元初傳本。

二﹑《上清大洞真經》六卷,卷一為誦經玉訣,餘五卷經文分為三十九章。前有茅山上清二十三代宗師朱自英序,每卷題有“上清三十八代宗師蔣宗瑛校勘”,卷六後有“咸淳壬申”(即南宋度宗咸淳八年,元世祖至元九年,西元1272年)程公瑞後序及元代四十三代天師張字初後序,故此亦為宋末元初傳本。上清派視此經為上清諸經之首。《真誥》謂:“若得《大洞真經》者,復不須金丹之道也,讀之萬過畢,便仙也。”《雲笈七籤》卷八《釋三十九章》說:

《大洞真經》云:高上虛皇道君而下三十九道君,各著經一章,故曰“三十九章經”,乃大洞之首先。

明白雲齊《道藏目錄詳注》中概述《上清大洞真經》(六卷)內容說

《大洞》秘旨,其中多是身中百神之名字,所生所居宮,分山林樓台池館,一一明白大概。以生門死戶,守雌抱雄為主,混合百神常存,各居其所,各理其務。存養自已神炁,吟詠寶章,則天真下降,與兆身中神炁混融,以至長生不死之道也。

《上清大洞真經》是《黃庭經》的發展,重存神,強調存養神炁及吟詠“寶章”,乃是道教內視內觀之術,以精思凝想守護己身之“神”。很 明顯,《大洞真經》的宗教思想是重存思並用符咒。行存思之法,並輔以 服氣咽津,念咒佩符,乃是上清派的主要煉養法。

Promoting the Official Culture of Taoism Series - Salvation Ritual Culture (宣揚正統道教文化系列之超渡法會鎮壇神祇)


Credit to Taiwanese Taoist Priest Master Chen Luo Ting for sharing with us this picture (非常之感謝由台灣陳羅霆道長與我們分享此照片).

I think we have been promoting this for quite sometime, but yet ...in South East Asia, many folks are still not able to get it correct.

These few years, it's great to see that in Taiwan, China or even Singapore, we are promoting the Upright Culture for Taoist Salvation (拔渡法會) or 7th Month Celebration (中元普渡) by not using the Unofficial Paper Figurine of Da Shi Ye aka Ghostly King (而並非鬼王大士爺), instead, we use the Official Taoist Heavenly Generals/Marshals to guard on the Salvation Ground/Premises (鎮守法會壇場).

In here is a picture of Heavenly General Lu (魯元帥), Full Official Taoist Title as Tie Niu Da Jiang Lu Yuan Shuai (鐵牛大將魯元帥), which partnered with Shen Hu He Qiao Er Yuan Shuai (神虎何喬二元帥) & Dong Yue Wu Dao Jiang Jun (東嶽五道大將軍), in maintaining the order in the Salvation Ground/Premises or to lead the Wandering Souls for Salvaged by Heavenly Lord Tai Yi (受太乙救苦天尊之拔渡).

Hope to see this is being widely promoted in time to come, as to preserve our Official Taoist Culture & Teaching till far & long.

Qing Dynasty Qi Tian Da Sheng Scripture & Talismans Sharing (清代齊天大聖真經與靈符)


Dear All,

Upon request, Jave have "reopen up" my old collection and decided to share something that fans/follower/believer of Qi Tian Da Sheng (齊天大聖) will like to have - this Qi Tian Da Sheng might not be referring to Monkey Sage that appeared in Journey to the West.

In here is a picture of the Scripture cover-page of the One-&-Only Scripture that is dedicated to Qi Tian Da Sheng and with this Scripture, there are 2 Talismans, one mend for Safety & Health Blessing (保命護身符) and the other one for Curing of Diseases (化病符). According to the date stated in the original Scripture, it was first being copied in Qing Dyansty Jia Qing 9th Years (清嘉慶九年), which is AD1804.

This set of Scripture & Talismans, was supposedly given to 2 Temples that located in East Singapore, but after knowing that, these collection of Jave might be misused, so Jave had decided to take back.
After 4 years, now Jave decided to share it out with people whom really will appreciate it and may it be promoted uprightly - even though this might not be an Official Taoist Scripture/Text.
For Temples or Organizations that are interested, please do PM or Email Jave at javecxwu@gmail.com, from there we will arrange for a meet-up for discussion or delivery-to-your-premises.

Long Hu Shan - Hall of Subduing of Demons (龍虎山大上清宮伏魔殿)

這是小道年前前往正一祖庭時﹐在大上清宮伏魔殿拍下的幾張照片。

In here, are a few pictures taken years back when we visited China Jiang Xi Mt Long Hu.

In this album, you all will be seeing the Hall of Subduing of Demons (伏魔殿). According to records, this Hall was used by Heavenly Master Zhang Dao Li...ng (張祖天師) to imprison the 108 Demons that he had subdued while he was promoting Taoism back then in Han Dynasty.

As you all can see, there are 2 big Talismans pasted on the entrance, these Talismans were believed to be the 1st layer of Guarding to prevent the Demons from escaping.

As we entered into the Hall, we saw a big well being surrounded by the Wooden-barrier. And as we peek into the Wooden-barrier, we saw that the Well was being sealed up and on top of the Sealed-cover, a Talismans was found.

This was believed to be the 2nd layer of protection. One thing strange is that, the surrounding of the Well seems to be wet, even though there aren't any rain or water-spill.














Brief Introduction on Bai Diao Qian aka the Long White Coins (道教往昇咒與白吊錢簡介)


Bai Diao Qian (白吊錢) or Bai Gao Qian (白高錢), literally translated as the Long White Coins, a traditional Paper Offerings of the Hokkien Clan in China Jinmen (中國福建金門傳統紙料), which originated in Jin Dynasty (最早記錄為晉朝時已用于送葬), for the Pass-on or spe...cial Salvation Rituals dedicated to Wandering Souls.

Today in Singapore, Jave had bring back this Traditional Practise, hope that this Ancient Culture of our Ancestors can be pass-down further to those who are interested in preserving our Root-culture.

This Year, Jave will be using this Bai Diao Qian in the 7th Month Salvation Ritual and hope that by then, more people can also use it together with Jave to promote it to more people.

In here is a picture taken by Royce Tan, whom had prepare the Bai Diao Qian with the enhancement of the Seal of our Official Taoist Wang Sheng Incantation (道教往昇咒).

In Taoist Contexts, this Bai Diao Qian with our Taoist Wang Sheng Incantation is known as Kai Ming Yin Lu Qian (開冥引路錢) or Lu Tou Qian (路頭錢), which will use to lead the Souls to Lord Cheng Huang Department (城隍殿) for reporting

Manifestation Anniversary of Heavenly Emperor Zi Wei 2013 (癸巳蛇年北極紫微大帝千秋聖誕)


In Taoism, on the 15th Day of Lunar 1 Month (農曆正月十五日), it is believed to be the Most Important Day of the whole Lunar Year.

Why? Due to the Inspection of Heavenly... Lord Tian Guan (天官紫微大帝) – in some Contexts, this Day is also known as the Manifestation Anniversary of Lord Tian Guan.

On this Day, while Lord Tian Guan performed his Inspection, he will also perform the Bestowing of Prosperity and Luck to those who deserve it (from ALL the previous Recordings & Inspection).

And so, in Taoism, on this Day, Taoists & Chinese will have to perform the Honouring dedicating to Lord Tian Guan. While performing the Honouring, Oneself shall Sincerely & Faithfully make Self-reflection, make Vows to make Changes – Eliminate the Wrong Doings, etc.

But in other Taoist Contexts, Lord Tian Guan's Anniversary also falls on 18th Day of Lunar 4 Month (農曆四月十八日).

For Year 2013, it falls on 27 May, a Monday.

So what can Oneself Prepare for the Honouring?

For Honouring of Heavenly Lord Tian Guan, for Official Taoist, we try to keep it Simple & Official.

For Official Taoists, Oneself can just use Taoist Five Offerings (道教五供) for the Honouring (link at http://javewutaoismplace.blogspot.sg/2012/11/introduction-of-taoist-five-offerings.html).

For Layman Taoists, Oneself can add in Longevity Buns (壽桃包), Longevity Noodles (壽麵), Huat Kueh (發糕), Ang Ku Kueh (紅龜粿) and Five Oranges (五粒桔子).

So when is the Best Timing to Do the Honouring?

The Honouring can be starts on the Eve after 11.00Pm.

For those who can’t, the Honouring can be done between 9.00Am –5.00Pm on the Actual Day.

So what shall Oneself do during the Honouring?

Before the Honouring starts, remember to place ALL the Offerings on the Main Altar at Home or Temple.

For those who wish to do the Honouring at Home but do not have an Altar then Oneself can prepare a Table facing outdoor or Heaven.

After everything is being put in place, sincerely light 3 Long Incenses and make 3 Bows.

After the 3 Bows, kneel down and start to report Oneself’s Name (for those who wish to do the Honouring on Behalf of the Others, remember to recite their Names too), Residing Address and then Call-upon the Official Title of Heavenly Lord Tian Guan (天官紫微大帝聖號) and last, Recite the Praise Incantation aka Bao Gao of Heavenly Lord Tian Guan (天官紫微大帝寶誥).

Official Title of Heavenly Lord Tian Guan (天官大帝聖號):

Shang Yuan Yi Pin Jiu Qi Tian Guan Ci Fu Zi Wei Da Di (上元-品九氣天官賜福紫微大帝)

Refer to this link: http://javewutaoismplace.blogspot.sg/2013/05/praising-incantation-of-lord-san-guan.html

Upon Completion of the Recitation of the Bao Gao, make 3 Bows and then start to do Oneself’s Requesting.

Once the Requesting is done, make 1 Bow and then slowly stand up and leave the Altar.

The whole Honouring will End here.

Zi Wei Zheng Zhao Di Jun (紫微正照帝君)


In case someone is wondering who is Zi Wei Zheng Zhao Di Jun (紫微正照帝君), here is a picture of him.

Zi Wei Zheng Zhao Di Jun (紫微正照帝君), another Manifestation form of Heavenly Emperor Zi Wei (北極紫微大帝) for the Eliminating or Warding-off of Negative Entities.

Brief Introduction on Heavenly Emperor Zi Wei Subduing of Evil-curse Talisman (北極紫微大帝除蠱滅魔食妖符)


In here, you all will be seeing an Official Taoist Talisman, yet look funny, that is associated with Heavenly Emperor Zi Wei aka Bei Ji Zi Wei Da Di (北極紫微大帝), the Heavenly Emperor of the Northern Hemisphere.

For oneself to evoke this Talisman, permission will needed to be granted by Heavenly Emperor Zi Wei and from there, Emperor Zi Wei will manifest himself into his sub-form as Zi Wei Zheng Zhao Di Jun (紫微正照帝君) and then, summon the subordinate - Heavenly Marshal Tian Peng (天蓬都督大元帥) to lead his "Black Spiritual Armies aka Hei Sha Jun (黑煞軍)" to subdue ALL the Negative Entities, Evil Spirits & Demon Beings that are command by the Evil-curse or Black-spell.

During the Ceremony of the Subduing, the Taoist Priest will transformed himself into Heavenly Marshal Tian Peng, after chanting a series of Spiritual Incantation. While he is conducting the exorcism, certain Spiritual features will be seen, such as Strong gust of Winds, Black Smoke surrounding the area or Stinky-smell floating around.

Once the exorcism is conducted successfully, a Bright-ray will enhanced onto the person-whom-got-cursed (金光/紫光護體).

In Taoism, this exorcism is considered as a High Level Skill, that not Taoists/Priests are allowed to train-on or conduct.

Brief Introduction on the various types of Five Thunder Talismans (道教各別五雷符簡介)





Upon request, in here, you all will be seeing 3 different sets of Five Thunder Talismans, each set from different level of Masters/Spiritual Teachers/Taoist Priests.

For the First set (1st Set), it’s quite commonly seen in the “market” or so-called “Layman Taoist Society”. Mostly these types of Talismans are issued by Masters whom had trained, whether in auditing of Geomancy or performed certain Luck-blessing Ceremonies, but not being Official Ordained as Taoist Priests.

But for nowadays, we do see some Taoist Priests issuing such Talismans as a form of Protection-blessing to devotees or Home-enhancement (
護宅).

For the Second set (2nd Set), these are Spiritual Symbols aka Hui Zi (諱字) or Hua Zi (花字), that are being used during the Enhancement of a completed-written Talismans – those can be found at the bottom of certain Talismans.

In this 2nd Set, different types of Symbols will have different effect, such as to Cure Diseases (
治病), to Seek Immediate Attention for Eliminating a Negative Energy (飛捷報應) or to Block a SHA (退煞) aka Negative Entity from coming near.

These Symbols can also be drawn on the Palm for self-protection while oneself is out in the field or recce in jungles (
書於掌中為掌雷).

For the 3rd Set, its known as the Official Taoist Five Thunder Talismans that being pass-down by Heavenly Master Zhang (正一張天師) from various Eras or from High Priests whom had attained their Immortality.

Nowadays, such Talismans are hardly seen, as not much Taoists or People do know of their existing or No-one is able to know how to use it or evoke the Energy before using.

If oneself will to pay more attention to this set of Talismans, actually its not hard to discover them, cos of the Talismans are being carved on the Five Thunder Command Block aka Wu Lei Hao Ling (
五雷號令), where Taoist Priests used during Taoist Ceremonies/Rituals.

For this set of Talismans, for those who are Ordained as Official Taoist Priests, can also write them on a piece of Yellow/Red Cloth (可書與黃或紅布之上), after then, honour the Cloth for 49 Days (祭煉四十九天) before using it as the Wrapping-cover for the Wu Lei Hao Ling. And whenever the Dried-thunder period has arrived, this Cloth can be placed on the Altar, together with the Wu Lei Hao Ling, to get the Enhancement from the Natural Thunder & Fire Elements.

Health Blessing for Summer (夏季祛病保平安)


Summer has just arrived and many of us had started to fall sick.

This year's Summer is indeed different from those in the past years, I do sincerely hope that all of us here can take care and stay healthy for the next 3 months.

In Taoism, during Summer, we will have to follow a few sets of rules/regulation or practise certain skills to stay health and get rid of the "Negativities" that "invaded" us.

One of the common practises will be "Sending Off the Negative Enetities/Energies of Diseases", in Chinese known as Song Sha (送煞).

As recorded, there are at least 72 types of different Deities/Beings/Spiritual Creatures that are In-charge of the Energies of Diseases (七十二路煞神監管天下萬般煞氣). And by conducting a special Taoist Ritual/Ceremony, we will "Send Off" (in fact is requesting them not to come) and allowed Health-blessing to be bestowed upon all people.

And for those areas that had already been infected by the Sha, a more major/larger scale of Ritual/Ceremony would be conducted, in order to "Sweep/Eliminate (滅煞)" the Sha. Usually during such Ritual/Ceremony, Remedies would be given to the sicks (施藥) and the Purifying of the surrounding (淨化) would be done by spraying Medication on every house, roads and borders of the areas.

So for other layman Taoists, what can oneself do?

1st, by staying healthy.

2nd, oneself can request blessing from the Dipper Lords of Southern Dipper (南斗六司延壽星君) by chanting the Official Taoist Scripture dedicating to them, which is known as Tai Shang Shuo Nan Dou Liu Si Yan Shou Du Ren Miao Jing (太上說南斗六司延壽度人妙經)

or

request blessing from Heavenly Lord Pu Hua (九天應元雷聲普化天尊) by chanting the Official Taoist Scripture dedicating to him, which is known as Jiu Tian Ying Yuan Lei Sheng Pu Hua Tian Zun Shuo Yu Shu Bao Jing  (九天應元雷聲普化天尊說玉樞寶經).

In these 2 Taoist Scriptures, a few methods of how to "protect oneself" from getting infected by the Sha, are mentioned.

Last of All, hope that we all will be healthy and for those who are able to request Blessing from the Deities on behalf of the others, please do so.

What is Dao Jing Shi (何謂道經師)


本門每日必修功課之一﹐就是一定要與個別弟子作一回的"論道"﹐今辰也不例外。

今天的課題是﹕

"道經師"是甚麼﹖
如何將"道經師"引用在每日生活中﹖
如何將"道經師"發揮在引人入道門等等﹖

討論結果可說是滿意 。(勝于這幾年來與一些同道討論此課題時﹐換來得都是"課本"中的"規定答案")

PS﹕

那您的對"道經師"認知又是甚麼呢﹖

對多數人而言﹐"道經師"永遠是"道經師"。
但對小道而言﹐還沒了解"師經道"﹐根本是不可能明白何為"道經師"。
每每入道者一定要從"師經道"做起﹐方可達到"道經師"之玄境。

Heavenly Lord of Prosperity Distributing Blessing for Summer 2013 (癸巳蛇年夏季天官登貴安福祿朝)


On the 10th Day of Lunar 4 Month of Gui Si Snake Year (19 May, a Sunday 農曆梅月初十日), Heavenly Lord of Prosperity (天官) & Summer Celestial Officer-in-charge (夏季司...馬仙官) will be Upraising the Court (登貴) to fix on the Distribution of Blessing to the Needy and those who have accumulated Good Credits from Merits (按個人福報而安福祿定財富).

On this Day, Oneself just needed to face South-west direction while honouring the Heavenly Lord & Summer Officer (面西南而朝禮天官及夏季仙官).

The Descending timing for the Officer will be 1500 – 1700 hours (申時 Singapore Timing).

Oneself just needed the following Offerings for the Honouring of Heavenly Lord & Summer Officer:

1 – 3 Long Incenses (長壽香三枝)

3 – 3 Cups of Chinese Tea (三杯清茶)

Mothers' Day 2013 (癸巳蛇年母親節祈福儀式)


母親節雖非道教節日﹐但每年的今天﹐小道及弟子們總會為家族中的母親們點燈祈福﹐因此今年也不例外。

眾人常說﹕"敬神不如敬父母" - 這是小道非常讚同的一句話。不論你個人修行有多高或法力有多強﹐不敬父母者就等同畜牲一樣﹐一切皆為枉然。

與此﹐借此機會﹐祝賀全天下母親(包括非人類)﹕

母親節快樂。
大道永護佑。

Even though Mothers' Day is not a Taoist Festival/Feast Day, but every year, on this Day, Jave & disciples will light Lamps for All Mothers in the family, in-order to request Health/Luck/Prosperity Blessing for All of them.

Filial Piety is important in our Faith. No matter how Skillful or Powerful oneself is, without Filial Piety, oneself is consider Nothing (or worst then a beast). And this is why, Jave always encouraged disciples to uphold Filial Piety.

Using this opportunity, Jave and members will like to wish All Mothers in the World (including Non-human-beings);

A Happy Mothers' Day

Praising Incantation of Lord San Guan & Huo Guan (三官及火官大帝寶誥)

 
 


 
 In here, you all will be seeing the 4 Praising Incantations extracted out from the Old San Guan Scriptures.

Please do share around.

Lord San Guan's 360 Official Lords Stone Carving (三百六十應感天尊南山石雕)


In here, you all will be seeing a picture on the 360 Official Lords (三宮九府三百六十應感天尊 或 九宮廿七府一百二十曹三百六十天尊) that assist San Guan Da Di (三元三品三官大帝) in performing the Recording of Credits & Merits, Distributing of Blessing and Eliminating of Obstacl...es.

PS: As recorded in the Taoist Scripture of Lord San Guan, Bao Gao & other relevant texts of San Guan.

These Stone Statues of the 360 Lords were carved in Song Dynasty (石彫刻于宋代), located as China Chongqing City, Da Zu County, Nan Shan Stone-cave Area (中國重慶市大足省南山石刻區) - the ONLY set in the World.

Due to Cultural Revolution & the invading of the Natural Disasters, not the Carving of the 360 Official Lords only left with 231 statues. Its quite a pity that we cant see the full set of the Lords anymore.

Today, in Singapore, as one of the few Taoists that promote the Culture of Lord San Guan, Jave will like to bring back the full set of 360 Official Lords to Singapore, in-order to allow more people to get to know more on San Guan and the importance of Honouring them.

Hope that in near future, our fellow Taoists in Singapore or South East Asia will be able to see them in our local Temples.

To know a little bit more, please do watch this Documentary.

與此﹐你們將欣賞到中國紀錄片-"國寶檔案之泰山石敢當"。希望各方同道會喜歡。

Manifestation Anniversary of Emperor Lord Dong Yue 2013 (癸巳蛇年東嶽大帝千秋聖誕吉慶)


28th Day of Lunar 3 Month (農曆三月廿八日) is considered as the Manifestation Anniversary of Emperor Lord Dong Yue aka Dong Yue Da Di (東嶽大帝).

Dong Yue Da Di, a High Ranking... Taoist Deity that being appointed to In-charge of ALL beings Life-span and After-life Issues. Due to misconceptions and misleading Info, Dong Yue Da Di is always being depicted as a Nether World Deity, which actually is NOT Accurate.

In Year 2013, Lord Dong Yue’s Anniversary falls on 07 May, a Tuesday.

So in Singapore, what can Oneself do to honour Lord Dong Yue?

For Taoists, we can just prepare the Taoist 5 Offerings/10 Offerings (道教五供/十供) to honour Lord Dong Yue as these Offerings can consider as the Highest Respect in Taoist Culture.

Five Offering Intro: http://javewutaoismplace.blogspot.sg/2012/11/introduction-of-taoist-five-offerings.html

Besides that, Oneself can add in some Traditional Cake/Cookies (傳統糕點) stuffs such as Longevity Peach Buns (壽桃包), Longevity Noodles (壽麵), Huat Kueh (發糕), Ang Ku Kueh (紅龜粿) & Ang Ee (紅圓包).

As for the Paper Offerings, actually for us Taoists, we can save up the Paper Offerings, as long as Oneself is able to prepare 3 sticks of Good Long Incenses and a pair of 24hours Red Candles aka Dou Zhu (斗燭) for Lord Dong Yue, Oneself and the whole Family will be Blessed.

So in Singapore, where can Oneself honour Lord Dong Yue?

In Singapore, oneself can Honour Dong Yue Da Di at Dong Yue Temple (東嶽廟) located at Bukit Purmei Road (besides CHIJ Kellock).

東庭仁聖降覃恩。
嶽河山川萬靈澤。
大悲賜福全天下。
帝座赫赫顯豪光。
