Common Fengshui Mistakes (93) Please refrain from buying any properties that are located near a temple


Due to population increases and rapid urban development, many residential areas now have temples or religious sites right beside them.

First, a home is for the living to live, relax and rejuvenate. A temple is a place for the living to pray to gods and seek religious services. This is a clear clash of purposes. The home inhabitants will suffer from disharmony and regular disputes.

Second, most Chinese and Indian temples have decorations, statues and tiles. Most of them have sharp pointy objects (dragon teeth, tiger claws and warrior swords) which contain negative “sha” energy. People living nearby may suffer from body ailments and pain.

Third, temples are well known to have really bad Fengshui. The main reason is that it is easier to communicate with the supernatural (especially spirits) if the Fengshui is bad. It is best to consult with your the temple authorities whether the temple Fengshui will affect your home. Another good advice will be to check the business nearby and ask your neighbors.

Fourth, a major characteristic of temple is that in contains lots of “yin” energy. Some temples also act as columbarium or temporary resting places. Some people may get rid of “small ghosts” and “yin” amulets. Many people think that temples ward off spirits. That is not really true because temples do play Buddhist chants that actually help wandering spirits to seek reincarnation.

The solution is to seek properties that are not in sight of any temples or religious sites. If that is not possible, grow green plants (without thorns) and ensure regular sunlight into your home. Put a bagua mirror at your front door and invite the Goddess Guan Yin into your home for praying. Offer incense to the gods and spirits in the temple once every 2 months will also bring you karma and luck.
