Once again, the Chinese New Year is quickly approaching. We wish everyone with the affinity and the destiny to receive this message, a joyous holiday, and a new year filled with good luck and all the fortune you desire!
On Chinese New Year’s Eve, Dari Rulai Temple offers three kinds of spiritual blessings
to bring people a more joyful, prosperous, and obstacle free New Year:
1: An-Tai-Sui Dharma Rite (Make Peace with the year).
2: New Year’s Spiritual Blessing Lamp (Safe &Well, Wealth, Longevity, Great Merit, Child’s Career).
3: Thousand Light Dharma Rite (Brings Blessing to All Beings. Light a candle for your loved ones).
An-Tai-Sui Dharma Rite: In Chinese astrology every year is governed by a zodiac sign. Your personal zodiac sign is determined according to your birth year. Your luck is affected by the sign of the current year. If your personal sign does not have a favorable relationship with the sign of a given year, this can cause bad luck and problems during that year.
We hold the “An-Tai-Sui Dharma Rite” to pacify problems caused by clashes between your zodiac sign and the coming year. The “An-Tai-Sui Dharma Rite” also helps promote a spiritually healthy body, a happy heart, an abundance of wealth and all and everything according to your will.
The coming year, the year of the Fire Monkey, could be particularly difficult for you if you were born in the year of the Monkey, Tiger, Snake, or Pig.
Monkey: 1908, 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016
