Happy Vesak Day to all readers!
Today the story will touch on Buddhahood and the Yin point of view. Well, I am not suppose to touch on religion in my stories but today is Vesak Day, I will describe the Yin practitioners’ point of view on Buddhahood – Probably my humble point of view. Please treat this as a fictional story by all means.
Hmmm… let me see how I should put it. At this stage, I have only written on the Entering Phase of the Yin Feng Shui, I will jump a little to how a yin practitioner would or might react when they are more in depth in Yin Feng Shui.
Talking about Yin Feng Shui – There are practitioners who are first a Buddhist or Buddhahood practitioners before they enter into Yin Feng Shui; while there are some who first entered into Yin practitioners and subsequently become a Buddhist or Buddhahood practitioners. Both of these categories have the same “experiences” and “mindset”
This may be due to some similarities between Yin practitioners and Buddhahood practitioners in the “form” or way of practice. One most similarity is to practice detachment. In other words, Yin practitioners have to throw away all knowledge of Yang Feng Shui before learning Yin Feng Shui – This is a form of detachment i.e. no form or method of Feng Shui. It is similar to Buddhism, in my humble opinion, this way is the way of learning through unlearning. In Buddhahood, it is taught that one has to “let go” and gain wisdom through detachment and learn from the universe. Well, Yin practice works the same logic – according to my practice when I was a Yin practitioner.
Then finally after learning the yin way, the practitioner again has to “throw away” the Yin knowledge and step into the “Ba Gua” (Tai Chi) way so that he can balance both the Yin and Yang forces. This again is very similar to the “Middle Path” that is always taught in Buddhism.
As such, a full pledged Feng Shui practitioner may “migrate” to being a Buddhist and walk the Buddhahood path (The Middle Path) and to further understand the universe. In other words, to gain wisdom.
My sincere apologies that I am not going to elaborate more on religion here in my stories. This story is to somehow highlight why some Feng Shui practitioners may at times relate themselves as Buddhist after years of practice.
To all Buddhist, Happy Vesak Day!!!
By the way, many of you may know who my idol is. He is Albert Einstein! And I hereby quote what he says about Buddhism:-
“Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion: It transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural and the spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity.”
“If there is any religion that would cope with modern scientific needs it would be Buddhism.”
These are quotes from Albert Einstein, my idol.
Well, Have an enjoyable long weekend!!!! I will be training my swim in the open waters and feel free to accompany me, throw floats to me if I am in stress… Choi!!!
For all those who are performing the rituals of “3 step 1 kneel prayers”, I salute you for your perseverance and honoring the Buddha, the Dharma and Sangha.
Happy Vesak Day to all Buddhist friends once again!!!
