The Story of Shigandang and its Uses
This is based on a true story that happened
in China over 1000 years ago. The story started with a family
that used to live in the village of Tai Ann. For a period of time,
the daughter of this poor family felt disturbed by an evil wind
that blew from the southeast direction everytime there was a sunset.
As time passed, she became more and more hysterical because of
the frequent visit of the evil. Her mother then went to the magical
mountain Tai San to seek help from the master who developed his
magical powers there. The master's name was Shigandang. He helped
the family and fought off the evil. However, later somebody else
in the south of Hokkien District was again reported to have faced
similar problem. Again, Shigandang was invited to chase away the
evil spirit. It again did not end there. The evil spirit repeatedly
went from one village to another to cause similar problem. The
havoc spread like wildfire from village to village and so the
people started to carve Shigandang's name on stones and displayed
them at home. Shigandang's name in fact scared and frightened
off every evil spirit. The evil finally gave up and the problem
was solved. Since then, feng shui masters have started using Shigandang's
name as a simple yet powerful method to cure many problems associated
to evil chi or shar chi.
Today, the there have been a few types Shigandang Cures available.
They are widely used in Guangdong and Hokkien in China. The premises
in those cities preferred to use Shigandang compared to the bagua
mirrors when countering T-Junctions and Shar Chi, so as not to
harm the neighbours in the opposite direction. The following are
the types of Shigandang cures endorsed to be useful:
1. Stones engraved with the words "Tai San Shigandang"
2. Shigandang with the Fu Dog Head
3. Shigandang with Dragon Tortoise
4. Chilin with Two Legs Carrying Shigandang
5. Shigandang with Fu Dogs
The one that is shown in the picture above is
the Shigandang with Fu Dogs. The name Fu Dogs are actually derived
chinese "foh" (recited in chinese as Buddha) because
these beings are found as stone mounting guardians at Buddhist
temples. They are considered sacred in Buddhism, where most deities
are depicted sitting on it. It is the emblem of wisdom, power
and protection, which could be the reason why they are being embroidered
on ancient chinese official robes. These powerful guardians are
fun to own like a lovely pair of real dogs at our homes and are
easy to tame. This powerful symbol provides potent protection
and demon scaring for ancient palaces, banks, mansions, shops,
malls, businesses, hotels and jewellery shops. Their faces may
look like lions, but take note that they are different from the
