2.5-inch Golden Brass Wu Lou - Mantra
Made from genuine pure brass with polished
surface, this traditional wulou has a bagua eight trigrams at
its bottom surface and a chinese "chao chye coin" as
its lid. It is mantra enhanced by filling its stomach with a rolling
of the "Long Mantra of Medicine Buddha". This mantra
protects everyone from physical and mental sickness and other
dangers and obstacle. It also helps you to eradicate the three
poisons – attachment, hatred, and ignorance – which are the source
of all illness and danger. The Medicine Buddha not only helps
in healing but also for overcoming the inner sickness of attachment,
hatred, and ignorance. Thus the 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 the Medicine Buddha for curing.
All in all, this wu lou is a strong diminisher against monthly
ill winds and illnesses.
What the wulou symbolizes and how
to place it?
The Wulou (bottle gourd) originates from
a fruit. When dried, it is very durable and its shape render it
useful as a receptacle for medicine. In olden days, 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 to enhance good luck in Feng Shui.
It is a 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 the Wulou
with them to resemble their ability to cure difficult ailments.
Some said the shape of the Wulou is also a wonderful integration
of heaven, earth and mankind. Feng Shui masters often regard the
Wulou as the replica of the Dui Trigram which signifies heavenly
doctor. In real life, taoist monks also use the Wulou to absorb
and arrest bad evil spirits into it for imprisonment. Therefore
Wulou has the potency to absorb bad chi and negative energy.

According to Eight Trigrams philosophy, the illness star#2 is
represented by the "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". And the abstract representation of the "dui trigram"
is actually the shape of the calabash. The actual dried fruit
has a golden yellow color which could represent metal element.
Later new feng shui masters created the bronze and brass wulou
because they prefer real metal energy to counter the illness star#2.

Defect rules built over time: Because they
are held by tools and shaped through machining from blocks , there
could be tiny tool marks or scratches visible under 30cm visual.
Cast brass work experiences high heat process, gas defect, extreme
shrinking and rough process steps, therefore they have "common
irregularities" on their surfaces. They include blisters, bubbles,
shrinkages, cavities, scratch lines, dents, tarnishes, dark spots,
oxides etc. They are NOT considered as faulty and therefore are
non rejectable. Despite obtaining from factories that provide high
brass purity and the best in workmanship that supply only grade
A pieces to us, common irregularities are still unavoidable.
