Sau Sing Kung Longevity Pendant
Material: Stainless Steel
Color: Gold Plated and Stainless Steel
Dimension(in): 1.2x1.8in wulou; 0.7x1.5 god of longevity
This sensual designer's creation of our
brand features the "God of Longevity" pairing with a
"Wulou inscribed with symbols Sau (Longevity) and Wufulingmen
(5 Bats of Immortality)". An elderly, portly male with a
uniquely large cranium, long ears and long drooping eyebrows (a
sign of great age), typically holding a perfect peach is the Taoist
God of Longevity, Lao Shouxing or just Shouxing (or Sau Sing Kung).
The Star of Longevity is the ultimate symbol of longevity and
uninterupted health. The Star of Longevity commonly holds a "giant
peach of immortality" in his right hand, the powerful emblem
for prevention and healing of diseases. The peach is also known
as the fruit of immortality belonging to Si Wang Mu. In his left
hand, he holds a walking stick with attached gourd which holds
special life-giving elixirs. All this symbols conjure up wishes
for the beneficiary's longevity. His figurine is thus a popular
birthday motif for your parents or any elderly person wishing
that they can live up to their ripe ages. The chinese regard him
as the god that can prolong ones age. In Hong Kong, those who
fall terminally ill will be prescribed by feng shui masters with
Sau Sing Kung charms and motifs to increase the chances of surgery
survivability and to prolong their lives.
On the other hand, the wulou simulates the abstract shape of "Dui
Trigram". Symbolizing the role of a "heavenly doctor"
according to classical feng shui, the "Dui Trigram"
(made up of 2 male lines and 1 female line) is a strong diminisher
against monthly ill winds, viruses and serious illnesses. Protecting
the body from harm, it improves your immunity against frequent
sicknesses and restores your health to its original state. It
is also best worn to subdue harmful forces from sickness stars,
such as by Illness Star #2 and Deadly Five Yellow. This benefits
those who are sleeping or using rooms that are afflicted with
such stars. Inscribed with the symbol of "wufulingmen"
(5 Fortune Bats), it expresses the sentiment "wishing you good
fortune". The reverse side of the pendant is inscribed with "Medicine
Buddha Mantra". Medicine Buddha has unbiased compassion for
all. He protects everyone from physical and mental sickness and
other dangers and obstacles, and helps them to eradicate the three
poisons – attachment, hatred, and ignorance – which are the sources
of all illness and danger. Medicine Buddha not only helps in healing
but also for overcoming the inner sickness of attachment, hatred,
and ignorance. Thus Medicine Buddha can help decrease physical
and mental illness and suffering. The Medicine Buddha mantra is
held to be extremely powerful for healing of physical illnesses
and purification of negative karma. Anyone who is stricken by
disease can seek blessings from Medicine Buddha for curing. Equally
powerful is another "Taoist Incantation of Good Health"
that is inscibed behind the pendant to consecrate power onto the
pendant. This pendant is extremely suitable to be worn by elderly
partriach and martriach of the family to ensure they stay healthy
at all times.
This stunning pendant is a divine cure against karmic illnesses,
all forms of deadly viruses and possesses hopeful curitive properties
against cancer. Health is true wealth. We cannot afford to fall
sick because of many reasons. We need a healthy body to be able
to free ourselves from bodily sufferings so that we can obtain
better quality of life. We cannot afford to fall sick especially
during recession because medical costs are too expensive to bear.
We need to stay healthy to be at full potential and to earn a
better living. We need to be free from diseases in order to be
happy in life. The list goes on and this tells us how important
our health is.
This exclusive charm

is fabulous, yet futuristic for younger generation. Stainless
steel is naturally hypoallergetic and is notorious for being nearly
indestructible. Stunning in esthetics, this
graceful pendant constitutes a meaningful
and prestigious gift.

Sau Sing Kung
What the Wulou symbolizes?
The Star of Longevity "Sau Sing Kung" is
associated to the star in the south pole. This star is often being
symbolized by an oldman with protruding forehead, white hair and
beard whom attained immortality. He normally carries a dragon
crutch, a peach, the fungus of immortality ling tzi and the wu
lou (gourd) which have medicinal values. Legend has it that the
Star of Longevity began as the star Canopus in the southern constellation
Argo, also known as the Old Man of the South Pole. People worshipped
this and other stars in the belief that the heavens ruled human
fate. "Records of the Historian", "Shi Ji",
and important document of China's history written during the Han
Dynasty (206BC-AD220), states, "peace prevails in the world
when the Old Man of the South Pole appears, when he is not present,
there is cause for great concern. He often impart virtues to people
on the secret of longevity and ask them to avoid greed, negative
thinking and arrogance as principles to sustaining longevity and
good health. His magical peach is blossomed from the heaven only
every 3000 years. His image represents good health and longevity.
It is also said that this star god is the one who determines the
length of human lives. His presence at home symbolizes granting
of longer life by him. He brings good health, less sickness, longevity,
immortality, smoother life for elderly people and good fortune
Wulou (bottle gourd) originates from a
fruit. When dried, it is very durable and its shape render it
useful as a receptacle for medicine. The Wulou was often carried
by aged people as a charm of longevity and a charm to dissipate
or ward off pernicious influences. The Wulou, like baguas and
windchimes, is one of the most significant tools to cure many
bad situations and enhance our Feng Shui. It is the powerful symbol
of health and longevity. Many deities like the Sau Sing Kung (in
3 Lucky Stars Fuk Luk Sau), Li Tieh Kuai (in 8 Immortals) and
Mad Monk God (Chai Kung) carry this excellent item with them to
resemble their blessings to cure difficult ailment. Some said
the shape of the Wulou is also a wonderful integration of heaven,
earth and mankind. Deities and taoist monks even use the Wu Lou
to absorb bad evil spirits into it for imprisonment. Therefore
Wulou has the potency to absorb bad chi and negative energy.
The traditional use of calabash to cure Illness
star is based on Yi Jing (I Ching). According to Eight Trigrams,
the illness star#2 is a "kun trigram". And we know that changing
the first and second lines of a trigram yields the Heavenly Doctor
(Tien Yi). Changing first and second lines of "kun trigram"yields
"dui trigram". One such abstract representation of the "dui trigram"
is the shape of the calabash. The dried fruit also has a golden
yellow color which could represent metal element.
