and bronze make the process even more auspicious. That is why
we usually see temples having burners and a lot of other accessories
made from the metal elements. Such incense burners also resemble
metal energy which could dissolve away ill effects of 5-Yellow
(mishaps, fatality and accidents) and Illness Star-2.
The mystic knot symbol explains that everything
goes in a cycle, where there is not start and end point. It is
a neverending cycle in Buddhism. The mystic knot is seen as the
symbol of good tidings with minimal illnesses, problems, pain,
setbacks and any sort of sufferings. It is a knot that implies
smooth and easy life. Therefore it is also the magical lucky knot
in feng shui. It is also the perfect emblem of "persistant

the best symbol of protection in Period 8 against accidents and
misfortune. If you are travelling offshore or faraway, the mystic
knot will also protect you against accidents and danger, including
robberies, burgalary, kidnaps and any other kinds of danger.
The conch shell has survived as the original
horn trumpet since time immemorial. Ancient Indian epics describe
how each hero of mythical warfare carried a mighty white conch
shell, which often bore a personal name. It is an emblem of power,
authority and sovereignty whose blast is believed to banish evil
spirits, avert natural disasters, and scare away poisonous creatures.
Today, in its greatly tamed avatar, the conch is used in Tibetan
Buddhism to call together religious assemblies. During the actual
practise of rituals, it is used both as a musical instrument and
as a container for holy water. From a feng shui perspective, the
conch shell is great emblem of networking luck, especially those
undertaking business connected to export and import. It helps
to make one prosper from gaining global acceptance if your business
is targeting worldwide. It is also a good activator of popularity
and associated to fame luck in the south.

of material desires. In the sagas and fairytales of many different
cultures, for example, there is the recurring idea of an inexhaustible
vessel.The treasure vase symbolises an endless rain of long life,
wealth and prosperity and all the benefits of this world and liberation.
Its presence is believed to attract wealth and bring harmony to
The canopy is symbolized by the umbrella, whose important function
is to cast a shadow, the shadow of protection. The dictionary
defines a parasol as an umbrella used for protection from the
sun. It is a traditional Indian symbol of both protection and
royalty. The ability to protect oneself against inclement weather
has always, in all cultures, been a status symbol. Thus the coolness
of its shade symbolizes protection from the heat of suffering,
desire, and other spiritually harmful forces. The precious umbrella
symbolises the wholesome activity of preserving beings from illness,
harmful forces, negative influences, obstacles and so forth in
this life, and all kinds of temporary and enduring sufferings
of the three lower realms, and the realms of men and gods in future
lives. It also represents the enjoyment of a feast of benefit
under its cool shade. In feng shui, it is being used to represent
success in career and triumph in all areas of life including business
pursuits and examination.
The wheel has its rim representing the element
of limitation, the hub is the axis of the world, and the eight spokes
denote the Eightfold Path set down by the Buddha, which leads to
the cessation of all suffering. In feng shui, it signifies overcoming
of shortcomings of mankind such as ignorance, bad temper, love and
greediness which translates to the rootcauses of sufferings. The
symbol is therefore often used to achieve spiritual growth, confidence
The double golden carps symbolize happiness,
as they have complete freedom in water. They represent fertility
and abundance as they multiply very rapidly. Fish often swim in
pairs, and in China they represented conjugal unity and fidelity,
where a pair of fishes would often be given as a wedding present.
In Buddhism, the double fish is a powerful charm capable of countering
evil, accidents, succumbing to epidemics and bad intentions. The
double fish is being displayed by rich families to enjoy abundant
good fortune and to activate wealth corners.
The pattern of growth of a lotus signifies
the progress of the soul from the primeval mud of materialism, through
the waters of experience, and into the bright sunshine of enlightenment.
Though there are other water plants that bloom above the water,
it is only the lotus which, owing to the strength of its stem, regularly
rises eight to twelve inches above the surface. The lotus flower
symbolises the complete purification of the defilements of the body,
speech and mind, and the full blossoming of wholesome deeds in blissful
liberation. In feng shui the lotus brings happiness, love luck and
uninterupted social advancements.
In Sanskrit, the banner or sign of victory
is known as the dhvaja, meaning standard, flag or ensign. Originally,
the victory banner was a military standard carried in ancient Indian
warfare, and bore the specific insignia of its champion.In Buddhism,
the flag of victory also denotes Buddha's triumph over Mara (evil),
who personifies hindrances on the path to spiritual realization.
It was only after conquering these four negative traits that Buddha
could proclaim victory over ignorance, and achieve nirvana. In feng
shui, the victory banner symbolises the victory of the activities
of one's own and others' body, speech and mind over obstacles and
negativities. It also stands for the complete victory of the Buddhist
Doctrine over all harmful and pernicious forces.
