Zhai Yun Xin An 宅运新案

ZhaiYunXinAn

余初泥儒。继执科学。夙不信阴阳家言。及学佛。复以佛说一切心造。超脱一切。于所遇阴阳家言葬宅吉凶。更不注意。迨戊辰夏。寓沪世界佛家居士林。闻老友尤雪行居士及别一庞居士。在林讲三角光。能依兹光辨宅运衰旺。试听之理由玄妙。颇契彼怀。至端阳后。梅雨阴湿。时有小疾。辄自医。时止时发。缠绵未己。尤居士一日见访。推算余所住室。则曰:须速移北床位至对面南。病方愈。且从小暑至大暑。宏法有殊胜缘。余初持万法唯识说。病仍未却。不得已依移床位。即夜安好。病去若失。越数日小暑。适有巨公名流多人。请余讲摄大乘论。以气候过热。匆匆至大暑毕。又推算居士林六月念旬以后。当得大财施。如期果有郭某居士。忽送两千元来林作功德。众皆讶为奇矣。至七月中旬。余复以腹泻剧病。六日夜目不交睫。所谓五阴激盛之苦。殆于此亲尝之。然屡医翻覆。将弥月。无可奈何。本拟函询尤居士。适林友沈润秋居士已代详询。

函告余速于是夜八时半。迁于某房某床位乃大吉。余即于所嘱迁之。比夜果安。越日更佳。不数日痊愈。余反复思维。盖学佛若修习至垂证果位。已超出地水火风之四大外。则身心不为阴阳五行所拘。固可以随缘自在。如在初学。或其功行未能余越四大范围。则对一切环境之应付。则不能不藉他缘为增上。而善此术遂如顺风扬帆矣。况此术乃远兆周易。演洪范。太史公所云叙四时之大顺。为天道之大经者。实亦东方文化精萃之一。自国人迷西化。舍弃家珍。枉外乞讨。颠倒可愍。果有大志者钩玄撷要。益自阐发。转输于远西。岂独一隅沾润。将全球受赐。亦若震旦之顶戴科学焉。尤居士研此术既早且精。迩年学佛宏法。愿广缘强。犹不少辍者。实见此术足为学佛者之助缘。济世之利器。故特于休养之暇。撰述此编。以广利他。余方力阐东方文化。而于此道又躬亲受益。故于斯书之梓行。特略论旨要以弁其端云。

民国十七年戊辰仲秋月唐大圆。

 

Introductory Paragraph from the books

 

Tang Da Yuan (唐大圆) (1885~1941)湖南人,初归依印光法师修学净土 describes as follows:

 

I have a practical and scientific personality. I did not believe in “Yin Yang Person” (now known as Feng Shui Master). In the later part of my life, I had become a devoted buddhist. As the buddha quotes “All matter arises from the heart.” That was why I cannot accept nor ignore any Feng Shui Master’s beliefs or theories from any of them.

 

Until summer time Wu Chen 1928, while I was residing at Ju Shi Lin Buddhist Temple in Shanghai, I overheard a conversation between You Xue Xing – Ju Shi (Buddhist Practitioner) and Mr Pang -Ju Shi (Buddhist Practitioner) regarding residential Feng Shui. After hearing their theories & facts reasoning, I felt fascinated.

 

After Duan Yang, there were heavy downpours. I was diagnosed with illnesses and used self-treatment medication but I was not able to fully recover. One day, You Ju Shi visited me. He told me to shift my bed from the North sector to the South sector. He also made a prediction that I would be invited to preach Buddha teachings from the 20th day of the 5th lunar month to the 7th day of the 6th lunar month.

 

I did not really believe him and ignored his advices. My illnesses still showed no improvement at all. I had no other options, I took my chance and shifted my bed according to his advice. I was surprised I was fully recovered on the very same day. I was really invited to give a talk during those days.

 

You Xue Xing Ju Shi had also predicted that the temple would receive a huge amount of donation during the 6th lunar month. True enough, at that exact month, a donor Mr. Guo donated $2,000.00 for merits. We all were amazed by his predictions.

 

On the 7th lunar month, I was diagnosed with a sudden serious diarrhea. I was not able to have any good rest for six nights and it was very suffering. I visited a few doctors but still cannot get cured. After suffering for a month, I seek assistance from You Ju Shi. He told me to shift my bed to a specific location in the other room on a selected date and time at 8 pm. I followed according to his advice and changed room. On the very same night, I felt better and after a few days I was fully recovered.
