Back to Basics, The Stove
November is the beginning of a new Storyboard membership year, and every year we go back to the basics for a moment. Here is one question asked of Professor Lin Yun years ago. Each one of us must have the answer at our fingertips.
What does it mean if the kitchen stove is in the center of the house?
It means that there may be a fire, an illness of the heart or along the central line of the body. Here is a new cure:
Paint the surrounding walls and cabinets dark green.
Or, perform the following steps:
Every day for 9 days, fill 9 glasses with water. Chant the Six True Words (Om Ma Ni Pad Me Hum) into each glass 108 times. If you know ten mantras, you can chant ten mantras into each glass.
Every day, sprinkle a few drops of water from each glass onto the stove and wipe with a clean cloth. The next day, replace the water, chant, and sprinkle once again.
Visualize that the water will balance the fire and prevent any misfortune.
If the stove can be seen from the bed (or aligned with the bedroom door), there may be accidents that involve seeing blood, or illnesses of the blood.
If there are doors on both sides of the cook standing at the stove, there may be arguments in the family, and there may be a loss of money.
If the stove faces the main entry to the house and can be seen from the entry, there may be fire danger, heart disease, illness along the midline, and nagging problems of all kinds.
