MAJOR RENOVATION AND SHIFTING HOUSE NOT ADVISABLE FOR ELDERLY PERSON
Question: A Buddhist friend’s brother went along with his father’s suggestion to rebuild their old mansion. After doing so, it seemed that not only his brother’s career became unfavorable, but also incurred a large sum of debts. His family met with major setbacks and was wrecked. He was under so much pressure from the aggressive debt collectors that the thought of jumping to his death often haunts him. What should he do?
Answer: For elderly person, it is best not to perform major renovation or to shift house. In fact, any elderly above the age of seventy should not be shifting house as it can cost them their lives as soon as they do it. This is because any piece of land would have its local deities, in addition to those ancestors who had passed away on the land, all of whom may come after the person. As such, old mansions should not be disturbed. Some of those who did so, or digged their ancestral tomb experienced a series of deaths in the family.
Should this ever happen, the person must repent for his wrongdoing. For non-Buddhist practitioner, he would meet major trouble. Cases of this nature require a minimum recitation of 108 times of Eighty-Eight Buddhas Great Repentance (Li Fo Da Chan Hui Wen).< About Fengshui and Metaphysics
