Don't Live In The State of WANTON 浑沌!



Have you EVER wondered, why is the dumpling called “WANTON”?

I mean, all the times you ordered wanton mee, you never questioned? 

Not only because they are supposed to float on the soup, and so the poetic name 云吞 (swallowing the clouds). It actually came from the term 浑沌 (or 混沌), which sounds exactly the same as WANTON (云吞) in some dialects. In fact, the North still calls WANTON as 馄炖.

浑沌 means chaos. It means before the universe was formed. We called that 浑沌未开. That means it was a state before everything, before existence.

Our WANTONs, are an analogy of 浑沌. That pre-primordial state, before time, before space. So you prep the wanton skin, you mix that meat filling with chives and other spices, and you wrap that into a wanton, that’s like a...thing, before the forming of a universe.

Do you want to live in a state of mess and chaos with no energy flowing around?

There is no Qi 气 in the state of 浑沌, there is no energy flowing, and for sure, there is no wealth luck. I mean, it’s just a mess.


This state of 浑沌 — WANTON, mess, chaos, before time and existence, before yin and yang — is so terrible that ancient Chinese demonized it as one of the 四凶 Four Perils (as contrast to 四灵 Four Divinities, like the 麒麟 Qilin).

“昆仑西有兽焉,其状如犬,长毛四足,似罴而无爪,有目而不见,行不开。有两耳而不闻,有人知往。有腹无五脏,有肠直而不旋,食物径过。人有德行而往抵触之。有凶德则往依凭之。天使其然,名为浑沌。”——《神异经》[汉]

"It has eyes but can't see, walks without moving; and has two ears but can't hear. It has the knowledge of a man yet its belly is without the five internal organs and, although having a rectum, it doesn't evacuate food. It punches virtuous men and stays with the non-virtuous. It is called Hun-tun."


And coincidentally, “WANTON” can also mean reckless, malicious, inhumane in English.

In “The Commentary of Zuo  左传”, one of the most ancient and important Chinese historical text, the WANTON was mentioned as well:

“昔帝鸿氏有不才子,掩义隐贼,好行凶德,丑类恶物,顽嚚不友,是与比周,天下之民谓之浑敦。”——《左传•文公十八年》

“The ancient emperor Hung [Hwang-te] had a descendant devoid of ability [and virtue]. He hid righteousness from himself, and was a villain at heart; he delighted in the practice of the worst vices; he was shameless and vile, obstinate, stupid, and unfriendly, cultivating only the intimacy of such as himself. All the people under heaven called him Chaos [hundun].”

Therefore, the state of mess and chaos from not doing fengshui was first demonized as one of the Four Perilous Beast. It was also personified as a son of an ancient emperor, who has no virtues, but obstinate, self-obsessed, villainous and stupid.

Do you want yourself and your family to be in this state of mess and chaos and be like the ancient emperor's descendant?

Definitely NO!

And ...... How to get out of the state of mess and chaos 浑沌?

《易经》gives us a clue: “是故,易有太极,是生两仪,两仪生四象,四象生八卦” and so, there is the state of Taiji, which gives birth to dualities, and from there, the four manifestation, and from there, the eight divinations.


太极, literally meaning the extreme ends or conditions, a form right after 浑沌. To evolve from there, you need 两仪, the dualities, the yin and yang.


When the yin and yang of your house or office is not sorted out and when your MOUNTAIN and WATER are not in place, then that is  living in a state of 浑沌 WANTON. And you are living in and with this ancient destructive beast, which chases away benefactors and all things good to you.

The yin and yang to your home, that’s the mountain and water. 阴者静,阳者动 the yin is quiet, the yang is active. Your MOUNTAIN is quiet, and your WATER is active. When you have your MOUNTAIN and WATER in place, you have done up the fengshui foundation of your home and office.


You would have moved from the state of 浑沌 mess and chaos, to a flowing yin and yang, which begets the many prosperities we know today.


So ...... look at your house now. Have you done up your MOUNTAIN and WATER? If you haven’t, that means you are staying in a WANTON, and you are the meat filling. You are a 肉馅.


Now, and even more so after 2024, you will need your MOUNTAIN. Chase the beast 浑沌 out of your home! Have both wealth and health, for you and your family.


Having one mountain at home, whole family is harmonious.

Having two mountains at home, the wealth can carry on for generations.

Call Mr Cola at 8137 8024 immediately for your house fengshui now!

Master Yun's Speech at the 6th International Students’ Mandarin Recital Contest

Dr Tan Li Xiang asked me to come on stage to share some words of encouragement with our students from all over the world. But as I was watching everyone's superb performance on stage, I thought to myself: what else is there to encourage? So instead of big ideas, I'm going to share about three trivial things. They are a rice dumpling, a fan, and two fishes. 
 
Let's start with the rice dumpling. 
 
Why am I talking about a rice dumpling? That's because regardless of nationality, religious belief or political inclination, Chinese worldwide will enjoy rice dumplings yearly during Dragon Boat Festival, which falls on the fifth lunar month's fifth day. As Chinese, when we speak of rice dumplings, we are reminded of Qu Yuan. 
 
My university lecturer, Professor Chew Cheng Hai, once spoke about Qu Yuan in class. He said Qu Yuan's patriotism should not be seen through his suicide by drowning. Instead, we should focus on the fact that he used the Chu language to compose poems, allowing the culture of Chu to be recorded for posterity.   
 
When we speak of Qu Yuan today, we can say he's quite a failure as an official. That's because he can't even protect his country, so he clearly can't be a good official. However, when it comes to Qu Yuan as a person, he's also a failure as life is already short, and he ended it earlier. 
 
Qu Yuan's success lies in the fact that he elevated the language of his country to the realm of poetry, and because of this, he preserved his country's culture forever. Qu Yuan's patriotism is reflected through his elevation of his country's language to the realm of poetry, and because of this, he preserved his country's culture forever.
 
Today, four to five thousand years later, when Chinese all over the world are eating rice dumplings on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month, I hope that we think of how we can elevate our spoken language to the realm of poetry to preserve Chinese culture for posterity. 
 
 A fan. 
 
Why am I talking about a fan? That's because I always have a fan in my hand. When people see a fan in my hand, they ask: "Master, why do you have a fan in your hand? Is the air conditioner not cold enough, or is the fan not cool enough?" I'm going to explain why I always have a fan in my hand. 
 
I don't use to hold a fan. Four or five years ago, a French and a Korean living in Japan invited me to their Japanese home to evaluate their fengshui. One day, I decided to take the subway into the city to experience the life of the locals. 
 
It was summer, a hot summer. As soon as I entered the subway, I saw many Japanese men in neat suits. They took out a paper fan from their briefcase and fanned themselves.
 
My first thought was: "Goodness! Why are these Japanese men such a sissy?"
 
Then it came to my mind that: "This thought of mine is unwarranted. Why? Because it is the Chinese culture that men use fans. I did not set an example for Japanese men to use fans; instead, I'm laughing at them for being sissies."
 
From that time on, I'm a regular user of fans. Whenever someone asks me: "Master, why are you using a fan?" I will reply: "This is the most environmentally friendly air cooler in the world."
 
The most environmentally friendly air coolers and air conditioners invented by Westerners are not more environmentally friendly than this fan. And this fan uses paper, one of the four greatest inventions of the Chinese people. So, if Chinese people worldwide use fans today, the technology of making rice paper in China will not disappear.
 
Two fishes.
 
Lastly, I'm going to talk about two fishes. What are these two fish? One is a goldfish, and the other is a carp. Where is the carp native to? It's China. Who bred the goldfish? The Chinese. 
 
How much is a carp sold for in China? Not a few dollars a pound. How much is a carp sold for in Japan? A few hundred, a few thousand, tens of thousands or even over a million dollars for one carp. How much is a goldfish sold for in China? A few dollars. How much is a goldfish sold for in Japan? A few hundred dollars, or even thousands of dollars.
 
What is the difference between the goldfish and carp sold in China and the goldfish and carp sold in Japan? The answer is that China sells the life of a goldfish and the flesh of a carp, whereas, in Japan, the culture of goldfish and carp is on sale. 
 
As Chinese, we should be ashamed that we only treasure the life of goldfish and the flesh of carp but sold the cultures of goldfish and carp to Japan.
 
Besides these two fishes, we also sold many cultures that initially belonged to China to others. For example, Ming dynasty's ikebana culture and Northern Song dynasty's tea and incense cultures.
 
I heard that primary school students in China no longer learn calligraphy. Therefore, calligraphy culture will disappear in China over the next few decades, just like carp, goldfish, flower, and incense cultures. With the disappearance of calligraphy culture, the culture of rice paper making, ink making, inkstone making, cinnabar making, seal making will also disappear.
 
Where will these cultures be found instead? In Japan. Japanese primary school students are required to learn calligraphy. 
 
So, who sold these cultures? We, the Chinese. When were they sold? Today. That's because we did not invest our time and money to use, cherish, and protect our culture and elevate it to the realm of poetry and art.
 
The International Students' Mandarin Recital Contest was initiated by Dr Tan Li Xiang and Professor Hao Zhiben. I was young and ignorant then and didn't think highly about the art of reciting. I thought there was nothing remarkable about public speaking. Now that I am a little older and wiser, I know that great patriotism does not happen on the battlefield. Great patriotism is to take care of the most minor thing that belongs to oneself. To use it, maintain it, respect it, cherish it, and bring it to the realm of poetry and art year after year. In this way, there is hope that our culture will forever remain in our hands. 
 
Congratulations on completing the 6th International Students’ Mandarin Recital Contest. Here's wishing Mandarin recital many good years ahead!

Master Yun's Speech at the University of Macau

 


On 1st November 2019, Master Yun was invited to the University of Macau Choi Kai Yau College's 5th Anniversary Celebration. He also delivered an inspiring speech on that day.

 


Xinhua Group invited Prince Tesso to attend Choi Kai Yau College's 5th Anniversary Celebration. He asked Master Yun to attend this meaningful academic and cultural exchange at the University of Macau.

 



There were representatives from Asian countries: Cambodia, Japan, and China. 

 




Below is an excerpt from Master Yun's speech at the event.

 

In Asia, art has a beautiful characteristic, and that's spirituality of art. 

 

Cambodians believe that the traditional Apsara dance of Angkor can move the heavens to bring blessings to the world.

 

Whilst Japanese art is often regarded as being Zen. Zen is a sect of Buddhism, and it is believed that one can gain enlightenment from the simplest and most ordinary things.

 

The Chinese believe that the epitome of art is the way of "harmony between man and nature".

 

As "spirituality" is preserved in Asian art, Asians are exceptionally respectful towards tradition. Art and creativity are processes of improvement and enhancement, not weapons for reform and confrontation.

 

As "spirituality" is preserved in Asian art, we treat art with sincerity, love, respect, faith, and hope. 

 

In good times, we celebrate with art. In bad times, we seek refuge in art, enduring cold nights in anticipation of the dawn of festivities.

 

It seems that now is the time when we Asians should gather in the halls of art and pray with conviction and hope.

 

We celebrate the moment. We also look forward to better days full of hope, peace, and prosperity.

 



There were also interesting, inspiring, and engaging dance performances that day. 

 


Master Yun had been invited to speak in different countries; which will be next? Stay tuned.

三则108沉香念珠

If you have visited Lotus on water agarwood and sandalwood gallery, you may remember there are always some very unique collections displayed in the conspicuous position. The beads are so valuable and always in demand and if they are collected by blessed clients, you may miss them for quite a while.

如果你来过沉檀馆, 你会留意到显眼的位置上总会摆着特别的宝物。这些珠子不同凡想, 总是供不应求, 如果被有福的客人请走, 你会有很长一段时间见不到它。




When human being was created by heaven and earth, we are blessed by the universe significantly. At the same time, troubles and problems come along no matter how you want to stay away from them. Buddha already taught us the way to stay away from obstacles long long ago.

当人生于天地以来, 我们从宇宙得到很多, 与此同时, 烦恼也跟着一起来, 无论你多想摆脱掉它们。然而佛陀早已在《佛说木患子经》教给我们远离障碍的方法。



When Buddha was on the mountains with 1,250 of his companions.

一时佛游罗阅只耆阇崛山中,与大比丘众一千二百五十人俱,菩萨无数,名称远闻,天、人所敬。

The king of Po-Liu-Li kingdom suffers, sent an ambassador to seek advice from Buddha for help to bless his people and country. He implored to mercy of Buddha to teach him the way to depart from sufferings.

时难国王,名波流离,遣使来到佛所,愿世尊特垂慈愍,赐他要法!未来世中人民和国家远离众苦。

Buddha told the king: "If you want to be free from obstacles, troubles, prepare a string of 108 beads and bring it along wherever you go. Regardless of whether you are walking or sleeping, be focused and praise the three treasures with one heart and push one bead. Bead by bead, from 10 times, to 20 times, with total focus, until it becomes more than a hundred, thousand times. Even more than tens of thousands of times..." (full article please refer to: How to meditate with 108 beads)

佛告诉国王:“若远离烦恼, 当用木槵子108念珠无论行住坐卧, 随身携带, 常常聚集精神, 称佛陀、达摩、僧伽名, 依次推出木槵子108珠子,若十、若二十、若百、若千,乃至百千万...”



If you noticed some blessed clients wearing 108 on their wrists, a string of 108 can be set into several rounds and tied with a special designed knot, prosperity with elegance, no matter rain or shine.

如果你注意到旺财馆许多客人都喜欢把108戴在手腕上, 一串108可以分成几串, 用旺财馆特别设计的扣固定, 无论何时, 高雅的旺财。





Why Lotus on Water 108 agarwood beads is so special? It is one of the rarest and most powerful forms of agarwood treasure. It takes years to form one string of 108 agarwood a beads, and it also gives the strongest Yang energy. The number “108” is 9 times 12 . The number “9” is highest Yang number. When you wear your Lotus on Water 108 agarwood beads, you are having the most Yang energy for all 12 months of the year.

为什么云龙子的108沉香念珠那么特别? 因为它是沉香里面最难以聚集的, 经过许多年才能凑成一串108。它也会给出至阳的气场, 因为108=9x12, 因为9是至阳的数字, 当你佩戴108, 让你在一年12个月里面都能获得这样的能量。



But as vast and as mysterious the universe might be, there is a sacred number “108” that connects this cosmology. One hundred and eight, “108”, has appeared in the motion of many heavenly bodies. (“And Master Yun Said: I Listen To The Voice Of The Universe”)

但由于宇宙可能是巨大的和神秘的,有一个神圣的数字连接。”108”, 一零八, 不少天体的运行都遵从这个数字。


When you are wearing your Lotus on Water agarwood beads, you can meditate with them by pushing out the beads. Every single beads you pushed out, you are sending your wishes to the universe. And as your agarwood beads get darker, your wealth and benefactors shall also come to you faster and grander.

当戴着沉香108冥想时, 你可以拨动珠子, 当你拨出每一个珠子, 你的愿望直达天庭。当你的珠子颜色变深, 你的正财和贵人会又多又快的来到身边。

108沉香念珠,在一颗一颗珠子往外推时,冥思的3步骤。

1) Know what you want and summarize it in one line, “I am....”. Make sure it is as if you have already achieved it, “I am healthy, happy and wealthy”, not future tense (“I will be...”), not making a wish (“I wish...”).

清楚你要旺什么,用一句话写出来,”我是/我拥有…”。确保是已经完成的形式,“我拥有健康、快乐,财富”,而不是未来式(“我将会…”),也不是许愿(“我希望…”)。

2) With every bead you push out, recite that one line, and attempt to visualize. You are sending your message to the universe, and attracting the energies to fulfill your wish.

每推出一珠,就默念该句一次,尝试一边观想你所念的。你这是在向宇宙广播你的愿望,吸引帮助你的能量。

3) Repeat for the whole set of 108 beads, use the mother-bead (not part of 108) as the marker. Might take only 5 minutes.

整套108念珠,依此重复,以母珠(不是108之内)为记号。可能只需5分钟。




There might really be aspects of our lives that are beyond the limits of the human mind. And maybe we should all spend some time to quiet our hearts, and listen to the voices of the heavens.

也许我们的生命真的超出我们思想的限制, 我们应该花更多时间静下心, 聆听上天的声音。

108 agarwood beads, so many ways pulling energies of the universe to you...and ONLY ONE still available.
