上天言好事,

好事傳人間,

人人得佑。

《道教新春文化。天慶祈福。叩答聖真》






 
《道教新春文化。天慶祈福。叩答聖真》



正月初三天慶日,

如開正,

小年朝。



寅月虎朝天德辰,

如迎春,

接貴人。



「正月初三日」,「史稱」【天慶日】,與【天貺日】同等「重要」,亦是【道教節日文化】中,必會慶祝的一個「節日」。



【天慶日】,如同「過年」,於「清晨」就得「獻香朝敬」,再來便是「祈福叩謝」。



除此之外,亦是「祭虎神」暨「招貴人」之日。



不知你「祈願」沒?


《道教新春文化。大年初三。行善集福》



《道教新春文化。大年初三。行善集福》



初三積善朝,

祈求闔家安。



慈善天德日,

寛心四季鴻。



恭喜恭喜。



「民間」一般認為「大年初三」是【赤口日】(「正月」為「寅虎月」,「初三」為「三虎日」),因而不「出門」或者「行春」,其實不然。



於【新春文化】中,此日其實被視為「行善日」,也就是於此日「行善」,反而能帶來「一年四季」的【平安】。



除此之外,於「大年初三日」,不可「心存抱怨」或者「道人長短」,再來不可有「負面情緒」,不然於「大年二十」及「大年廿一」之【天穿日】期之後,則會影響「下半年」之【運勢】。



所以大家要注意。

《道教新春文化。開年祭福德。乞財納福》








《道教新春文化。開年祭福德。乞財納福》



【立春聖日】,係為【開春】。

【大年初一】,係為【開正】。



那麼【大年初二】呢?



些許人會稱【大年初二】為【開年】。



【大年初二】,除了【女兒】們「回娘家」的【春俗】,再來便是準備【三牲酒禮】或【三牲九禮】,來「祭天地」及「祀祖先」。



而幾許【南方籍貫族群】則會在【大年初二】才「開葷」,因而會準備「大魚大肉」來向【神明】「賀歲叩恩」。



於【閩南新春文化】,【大年初二】就得準備【三牲酒禮】或【三牲九禮】來「祭土地」或者「敬福德」。



再來便是在「申時」後,向【土地公】「乞財」。



何為【九禮】?



此【九禮】並非【周禮】或者【禮記】裡的【九禮儀】,而是指【供品】或【貢品】。



很多人會誤為【三牲】一定要配【酒禮】(即是【酒】),其實不然。



「早期」的【九禮】係為,如下:



一,三種水果(當季)



二,三種糕餅(如今的【碰餅】【綠豆糕】【蔴花卷】)



三,三種甜食(如今的【花生糖】【貢糖】【芝蔴糖】)



一切準備好後,便可於「申時末」開始「祭祀」至「酉時正點」再「化寶答謝」。



之後,再於「大年初十」準備簡單【供品】敬【福德土地】即可。

《道教新春文化。初二開年。敬福德。祭土地。滿城黃金》






《道教新春文化。初二開年。敬福德。祭土地。滿城黃金》







轉眼就「大年初二」【開年日】了。







於「朝敬」【福德土地神】之時,記得誠心誦念其【寶誥】以求「平安」,當然也不能忘了【福德夫人】。







記得今天為【新春】中,「大吉利」之日,除了「囘娘家」,便是「乞財納福」之期。







最後,於此日千萬不可「自暴自棄」或者「言人是非」,不然「今年一整年」就得「應誓而行」,那就「大吉利是」了。







恭喜恭喜。

《道教新春文化。正月開年交子。迎接福祿壽》



《道教新春文化。正月開年交子接福祿壽



正月開年(開正)恭迎或上敬福祿壽三星文化﹐最早能追溯至【晉朝】【唐朝】初期。



每年在歲末新初(即年三十/大年初一子時)﹐【皇帝】及【高官】會設香案﹐恭迎福祿壽三星降臨人間﹐祈望來年國泰民安百業興隆



天文學所顯示﹐在每年的大年初一日﹐其三星會行至天之中央﹐不但如此﹐其星亮度為全年最亮。



那為何會有除夕接財神



其實這是在【清朝民初】時才有的習俗﹐最早新春接財神是源於【唐朝末年】【宋朝初期】﹐而且日子為大年初五日寅時始﹐對象為正一玄壇趙公明天君及部下四路財神



為了保留傳統﹐在此希望各方同道好友能繼續發揚此文化﹐以免此寶貴文化消失不見。

三星拱照福祿壽 Fu Lu Shou aka The Three Auspicious Star Lords




Ushering in Star Lord Fu Lu Shou on Lunar New Year



In South East Asia, due to Commercialization and Mis-concept, alot of Taoists & Folks tend to perform the Ushering of Deity of Wealth on the Eve or 1st Day of Lunar New Year, which this is totally In-correct and Ignorant. Recently in Singapore, there are even The-Claimed-Taoist-Organisations conducting the Ushering in of Deity of Wealth for Devotees and asking them to participant in the Ceremony, This is seriously distorting the Upright Culture of Taoism and Chinese Customs.



In here, I will like to advise Taoists & Chinese not to get Con by such Temples, Organisations, etc. Cos Ushering in of Deity of Wealth can only be done on the 5th Day of Lunar New Year or 11.30Pm on the 4th Night of Lunar New Year.



So who we Usher in on the Eve or the 1st Day?



They are actually Fu Lu Shou - the Three Star Lords of Prosperity, Fortune (Career/Academic) and Longevity (福祿壽三星君簡介)



http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.619479301452254&type=1



So what shall oneself prepare?



For the Ushering of Fu Lu Shou, actually is very easy and simple.



Just prepare a set of 3 Good Incenses, 3 cups of warm Chinese Tea or Wine and a set of 5 Oranges.



After preparing, set up the Offerings on a small Desk that faces the Heaven (any Direction).



Once everything is ready, Recite the Offering Incense Incantation and then call upon the Title of Fu Lu Shou Xing Jun (福祿壽三星君寶誥):



http://javewutaoismplace.blogspot.sg/2013/02/banner-of-fu-lu-shou-bao-gao.html



After that, report who you are and where you stay, then make your simple Request.



Once finished, make 3 sincere Bows and then return back into the House.



After entering into the House, leave the Door open (with Gate locked for safety) until the whole family going to rest.



Once All these are done, Fu Lu Shou the 3 Star Lords will Blessed on the whole Family with All the necessary Blessings (better off then just getting Blessing from Deity of Wealth).



Do also look up into the Sky, cos Tonight, Fu Lu Shou Stars (Orion Stars 獵戶星座) are usually the Brightest in the whole Year.



Introduction on Orion Star aka Hunter Star (獵戶星座簡介):



http://javewutaoismplace.blogspot.sg/2008/02/introduction-on-orion-star-aka-hunter_1164.html



Do remember, do not go to any Un-official Temples or Organisation to join in any such Ceremonies, especially those that required Big Sum of Money. They are just trying to use the Name of Deities to gain the Un-necessary Money.



Last of All, wishes All:



福到祿到壽星到。

Fu Dao Lu Dao Shou Xing Dao



財旺運旺富貴旺。

《道教新春文化。臘月廿九日。換春聯。謝門神》







《道教新春文化。臘月廿九日。換春聯。謝門神》



【新春文化】中,每到「農曆臘月廿九日」(有者為「農曆臘月廿八日」,因爲該年沒有「臘月三十」),便是更換【春聯】及「謝門神」的日子。



如果是一般【春聯】,一旦取下後,便可「丟棄」或者放入【金爐】之中,隨之「化掉」。



但如果【春聯】上,印的是【門神】(不論是【鍾馗】,【尉遲恭秦叔寳】,等等),那就不可輕易或隨意丟棄,這樣是為「不敬」的。



在更換【門神】之時,先得點燃「三柱香」,向著【門神】舉行簡單的「答謝」,再來將【門神】取下,使用「一千金」一同與「三柱香」,將【門神】「化送」。



「化送」後,須得使用【五色花陰陽水】將【大門】擦拭乾净,之後等待「一刻鐘」(十五分鐘),再將「新」的【門神】貼上(貼【春聯】也是如此的步驟)。



【門神】上貼後,同樣點燃「三柱香」,向著「新」【門神】祝禱,祈求【門神】保佑一家大小「出入平安」,之後化「一千金」來恭迎「新」【門神】。



於此簡單分享,供大家明瞭。

《道教新春文化。歲末吉辰。北斗下降紀錄簿》











《道教新春文化。歲末吉辰。北斗下降紀錄簿》



【除夕】離我們是越來越近了,記得在【除夕】「前一天」得「上供迎斗保平安」。



【道教文化】之中,【歲末】「迎斗」無須「禮斗」,衹貴「點元辰燈」及「誦經」。



在【歲末】「迎斗」,每人可點上「一盞」【元辰燈】,之後誦念《北斗玅經》,如不會「誦經」者,可誦念以下所分享的《北斗九皇君寶誥》(女者可誦念《九皇夫人寶誥》)。



而上供時需要準備什麽呢?



一切簡單就好,可備【道教五供】或「九杯清水」即可。



在此分享,共大家明瞭,也祝福各位:

元辰光彩壽添增。

斗星覃照福盈歲。



恭喜恭喜。

祈願【斗府星尊】增福保安,生靈添佑。



恭喜恭喜。

《立春上敬平安香》




《立春上敬平安香》



【道教】「上香之法」,多不勝數,每種「上香法」都有個別的意思及代表性,而且還得配合不同場合,不同「時節」,來上不同的【香】。



【立春聖日】來臨,以下「兩種」【道教香法】,可在【立春開春】之時敬上,之後看其變化來預測一年的吉祥:



1 – 四季祈福香



【四季】,既是「春夏秋冬」。



於「上敬」此【香法】時,爲了祈求「一年四季」皆能平安度過,大災除滅,小災免來。



「上香」後,以「順時方向」觀察,其中「一柱香」若有「異樣」,與「那一季」就得小心,如若【香】的【高度】「相差過半」,身體就得多加注意。



>>>





2 – 六時平安香



【道教】之中及【醫學】之内,【六時】所指如下:



大暑,處暑,秋分,寒露,霜降,大寒



這【六時】是「一年」【廿四節氣】中,變化最大的「六個時節」,因此人在此【六時】最容易生病或身體會有異常變化。



於「上敬」此【香法】之時,也是爲了祈求全年平安健康,也可預測在那個時候的多加注意。



上香后,以順時方向觀察:



>>>



大暑   處暑   秋分

大寒   霜降   寒露



在此分享,共大家明瞭。



祝福大家:



一年四季身體健。

六時無災多興旺。



恭喜恭喜。

《己亥豬年。生肖運程之犯衝刑太歲表》





《己亥豬年。生肖運程之犯衝刑太歲表



【己亥豬年當年太歲】,是爲【謝太將軍】,民間一般又稱為【謝燾】或者【謝壽】,而於《南北朝六十甲子太歲名錄》記載,【己亥豬年當年太歲】則是【尉遲明進士】,如今一般所供奉之【當年太歲】,為【清朝】版本



Chinese Zodiacs Luck in Ji Hai Pig Year 2019 - Conflicts with Lord Tai Sui



Its again the period for Jave Wu to do the analysis of the Luck for the various Chinese Zodiacs for the Year of Pig (2019) aka Ji Hai Pig Year (己亥豬), Taoist Calendar Year 7207 (道曆七千二百零) & Lunar Calendar aka Huang Li Year 4716 (黃曆四千七百十).



Huang Li aka Lunar Calendar was founded accordingly to the founding year by Yellow Emperor aka Huang Di (軒轅黃帝).



As for Taoist Calendar, many Taoists or People had been using the same calculation method as Lunar Calendar which is not very accurate. In here, Jave will like to use this opportunity to correct it back. According to records, Taoist Calendar should follow the founding year when the oldest painting of Nv Wa (女媧蛇身畫軸) was founded, which was 7207 years ago.



Ok, direct to the topic:



For Ji Hai Pig Year, the following Chinese Zodiacs will have some minor issues with Lord Tai Sui General Xie Tai.



In Official Taoist Records in Southern & Northern Period, the Tai Sui of Ji Hai Pig Year was known as Yu Chi Ming.



The version that we are using now is from Qing Dynasty, which have got a lot of mistakes that have yet to be clarify or change. :



Direct Front-facing (Direct Conflict) with Lord Tai Sui of Ji Hai Pig Year:

Pig (正犯太歲: )



Lunar Age involved (農曆虛歲): 13, 25, 37, 49, 61, 73, 85, 97



Direct Back-facing (In-direct Conflict) with Lord Tai Sui of Ji Hai Pig Year:

Snake (正沖太歲: )



Lunar Age involved (農曆虛歲): 19, 31, 43, 55, 67, 79, 91



Adjacent Left-facing (Major-side Conflict) with Lord Tai Sui of Ji Hai Pig Year:

Tiger (偏沖太歲: )



For age Below or Of 12 & Above or Of 99 wont be affected by the Conflicts or Issue-facing with Lord Tai Sui, so for those who have kids and elders of this Age-group, please do not worry so much (童生不越虛歲十二﹐老者虛歲欲百﹐皆不與太歲犯衝刑。).



Info on Lord Tai Sui of Ji Hai Pig Year as followed:



己亥豬年安奉當年太歲星君介紹》



Paying Respect to Lord Tai Sui Of Ji Hai Pig Year



Dear All,



After Dong Zhi aka Winter Solstice of Year 2018, all Paying of Gratitude to Lord Tai Sui of Wu Xu Dog Year (民間一般通常在【冬至】之前答謝該年當值太歲星君) will end (for those who miss this, usually will do it before 16th Day of Lunar 12 Month of the Year or the Day for Thanksgiving Ceremony (如若有人無法在【冬至】前答謝﹐可在【歲末答謝神恩】時或【尾牙】答謝該年當值太歲星君) or before Li Chun Day 或者在【立春】前答謝也可).



何時為安奉新年當值太歲星君?

So when is the Best timing or Accurate Day to pay respect to Lord Tai Sui?



真正安奉【當值太歲星君】為【立春日】。



According to Chinese Custom & Taoist Practice Records, the Best & Accurate Day to pay respect to a the Lord Tai Sui of the New Lunar Year starts on Li Chun Day - which means that, the Initial Starts of the Spring Season (a lot of people may think that the 1st Day of Lunar 1 Month is the start of a New Lunar Year, but actually is not, if we are to go according to the Old Ancient Calendar, Li Chun shall be the actual day of the arrival of Spring Season).



【己亥豬年立春日】是何時?

So when is Li Chun Day for Ji Hai Pig Year?



Li Chun Day for Ji Hai Pig Year falls on 30th Day of Lunar 12 Month of Wu Xu Dog Year (戊戌狗三十), 04 Feb 2019, after 11:14hr (Horse Hour 一刻).

So what are the Offerings that needed to prepare?



Usually the Temples that dedicate Altars to Lord Tai Sui will have set of offerings prepared for Devotees, but if you needed to get extra shares, here are the suggested items:



1 - One set of Mandarins (5 quantities 大吉)



2 - One set of Chinese Tea Leaves & Traditional Cookies (Jian He 餞盒)



3 - One set of Lord Tai Sui Incense-paper (optional 太歲金)



4 - One set of Lord Tai Sui Robe (in Blue Color 藍色太歲袍)



5 - One set of Lord Tai Sui Talisman (optional, beware that, only choose the Taoism one, not those mix with other Religions Wordings/Charms on it 正統道教太歲符)



6 - One set of Incense (not to short, medium length will be best - more than 48cm 富貴長命香)



7 - An Ang Bao with an amount of S$1.20 or S$12.00 (for Ji Hai Pig Year, there are only 12 Lunar Months)



8 - A Spiritual Petition to report on the name, age, DOB and address of the person who paying respect to Lord Tai Sui (some Temples will prepare for the devotees, if not, can always look for any Taoist Spiritual People for one 安奉太歲疏文)

Protection & Blessing Items for Oneself



Recently, many People had approached me for the enquiry of what Items to be bought in-order to do Self-protection for the Conflict-issue against the Lord Tai Sui.



《安奉當值太歲星君所需供品物件》



Here are a few items that oneself can get:



1) Wu Di Qian aka The Five Emperors Coin (五帝錢)



Pls refer to link 五帝錢簡介: http://javewutaoismplace.blogspot.sg/2007/12/wu-di-qian-aka-five-ancient-coins-of_2302.html



2) Wooden Pendant (木制墜子)



For example, Wooden Ru Yi Pendant (木如意)



3) Golden Jewelry (金飾)



4) Tai Sui Coin (太歲錢)



5) A Copy of Lord Tai Sui Praise Incantation (太歲寶誥)



Remember, the Tai Sui Incantation must be written by oneself, do not ask anyone to do the copying or writing on behalf of you. This Incantation can be written or copy after 24th Day of Lunar 12 Month.



The Incantation can be found in (太歲寶誥資料):



http://javewutaoismplace.blogspot.sg/2007/09/pictures-of-lord-tai-sui_9423.html



Copy it on a Red or Yellow Paper with the dimension of 10cm by 10cm.



After complete writing, on the Day of Paying Respect to Lord Tai Sui, bring it along and then before burning off the Paper Offerings, bring out the Mantra and bring it on top of the Urn, go 3 rounds on top of the Incense Fume and then keep it in the Wallet.



Whenever Oneself feels uneasy or frustrated, take it out and recite once, the Issues that you faced will somehow be solved.



Last of All, wish everyone after paying respect to Lord Tai Sui, All necessary blessings will be bestowed to you and your family.
