DR Sahadev made it big in business. He spent money buying a piece of land in the town of London and built a 3 -storey villa. He had an impressive swimming pool in the garden with a 100-year-old Lychee Tree in the backyard. In fact, he bought the property precisely because of this tree. His wife loved eating lychees.
During renovations, his friends urged him to get guidance from a Feng Shui Master, just to thread on the side of caution. Dr Sahadev never quite believed in Fengshui yet surprising he took the advice to heart and went out of his way to engage a feng shui master from Hong Kong. The Grand Master was Master Cao who’s been in the profession for over 30 years, renowned in the Fengshui circle. They had a meal in the city then flew to the City of London…..After reaching London Dr Sahadev…. Who had a heart of gold….. drove the Master to his house. Along the way, when cars behind them tried to overtake, he would simply give way.
The Master laughingly remarked: “Big Boss Dr Sahadev….. your driving is really safe.” He spoke really fluent mandarin for someone from HK.
DR SAHADEV… laughed at the remark: “Usually people who need to overtake have some urgent matter to attend to, so we shouldn’t hold them up.”
Arriving near the house….. the streets grew narrow and so my good friend Dr Sahadev…….. slowed down.
A giggling child suddenly darted out from an alley and as the child ran across the street, Dr Sahadev…… still didn’t speed up. Instead, he kept his gaze on the alley, as if waiting for something. Out of the blue, another child darted out, chasing after the child ahead.
Master Zao was surprised and asked: “How did you know there’d be another child the following suit?”
Dr Sahadev…. shrugged: “Well, kids are always chasing after each other so it’s impossible for a child to be in such glee without a playmate.”
Master Cao gave him a big thumbs up and laughed out loud: “That’s really considerate of you!”
Arriving at the Villa, they got down from the car. Suddenly about 7 to 8 birds flew off from the backyard. Seeing so, Dr Sahadev…. said to Master Cao: “ If you don’t mind please wait here for a little while.”
“What’s the matter?” Master Cao was taken aback.
“Oh, there’s probably some kids stealing lychees in the backyard. If we walk in now we might give them a fright, let’s not risk anyone falling off the old Lychee Tree.” Dr Sahadev….. replied humorously.
Master Cao stayed silent for a while before stating matter-of-factly: “This home doesn’t need a Feng Shui evaluation anymore.”
Now it’s Dr Sahadev ‘s……. turn to be shocked: “Why’s that?”
“Any place graced with your presence naturally becomes the property with the most auspicious Feng Shui.”
When our minds prioritize others’ peace and happiness, the one who benefits is not just others, but ourselves too. When a person is considerate of others at all times, then this person has unconsciously accomplished sainthood.
The saint is, in fact, a person who through benefiting others become enlightened.
Hope your home too, does not need a Feng Shui master
