说说吉祥物-斑彩螺 (Ammonite)

在加拿大的免税商店看到美丽夺目的斑彩石,爱不释手。才知道这么美丽的彩石原来是从斑彩螺切割成的。

在宇宙万物中,螺形是一个宇宙符号,象征吉祥、和谐,而“太极圈”也来自宇宙螺旋的意念,因此螺的化石被视为蕴含极多螺旋信号的吉祥物。 斑彩螺是海底的活螺化石,乃上天七千万年前赐予人类的宝物。它吸纳天地灵气,具有七重鲜艳的色彩,每一种颜色开发人体的特定轮位,让其潜能获得充分发挥。


斑彩螺有助消除负面能量,平衡周遭的五行之气(金、木、水、火、土),让人感觉舒畅;整体卷抱着的形态,有入无出,带有吸财的功能。此外,它也可作为吉祥护身符,利于增强判断力、激发创造力。


The conch of an ammonite harnesses a unique shape that symbolises luck and harmony. Ammonites, fossiled 70 million years ago often, lived directly above seafloor waters. It has absorbed the essence of heaven and earth and possesses seven layers of vibrant colours, each activating the specific chakras of the human body, enabling the hidden potentials to be adequately displayed.


Ammonite balances the five elements’ energies- Metal, Wood, Water, Fire and Earth. Thus helps to create a comfortable feeling and also functions as a means of gathering more wealth with the help of the spiral. The spiral, in addition, symbolises only an entrance and no getaway of wealth in this case. The ammonite can be used as a protective lucky charm to dispel negative energies, increase judgment and ignite creativity.

在youtube上看到很多三巴旺天后宫歌台的视频

“So what is Blessing Lantern?”

在龙山门网站看到这篇有关祈福灯的解说,适逢是三巴旺天后宫祈福灯上场的时候,贴上来与大家分享。

So what is Blessing Lantern?
In Chinese, we address it as Ping An Deng (requesting for Blessing thru-out the Year平安燈), Fu Gui Deng (requesting for Prosperity富貴燈), Guang Ming Deng (requesting for Smoothness & Brightness光明燈) or Chang Shou Deng (request for Healthy & Longevity長壽燈), such titles are being addressed according to what Oneself requested or wish to request. Usually such Lanterns come in Red Rounded form with Nice pattern being printed on it, after hanging up onto the Roof of the Temple, the Lantern will stay there for a Year.

During the Lighting of the Blessing Lantern, a Priest or the Person-in-charge will write the Name of Oneself or the whole Family onto the Lantern and upon completion, the Lantern will be bring forward to the Main Altar of the Temple and the Priest or Person-in-charge will assist the Devotees in making the Reporting & Requesting.

So for such Lighting of Blessing Lantern, does it really help?
Frequently speaking, Yes, it does help certain People, especially for those who didn’t make any form of Un-necessary & Realistic requests.

And of cos, the Temple/place that Oneself choose to light the Blessing Lantern also play a part in the making of the Requesting/Wish comes True.

So what type of Temple/Place Oneself can go for the Lighting of such Blessing Lanterns?
In Singapore, there are quite a number of Temples/Places that provide such services, but due to the Energies & Activities that take place in the Temples/Places, for some people, after they lighted the Blessing Lanterns, more issues happen rather then Blessings being bestowed upon them.

1 Oneself shall try to avoid Temples/Places that conduct Consultation Sessions by Mediums
2 Temples/Places with Main Deities which are Heavenly Deities and not Nether World Deities
3 Oneself shall try to avoid Temples/Places with Ancestral Halls being set-up
4 Oneself shall try to avoid Temples/Places that don’t allow Devotees to be present while the Lantern is being hang-up
5 Temples/Places with Priest or Person-in-charge doing the Reporting & Requesting while hanging of the Lantern

So what are the items that needed to prepare before going for the Lighting of Blessing Lantern?
Oneself need not worry on the items to prepare or buy. Usually when you are at the Temple/Place, they will prepare the Necessary Offerings for you to do the Honouring to the Deities.

Best is, remember to wear RED while going for such Lighting of Blessing Lanterns.

So usually how much does such Blessing Lanterns cost?
Normally such Blessing Lanterns’ cost can be range from S$10 – S$38 per Lantern, if the cost of the Lantern goes beyond S$50, then I will advise you all not to purchase it, cos usually such Temples/Places are using the Lantern to earn extra Commercial Value/Money.

So in Singapore, where can Oneself Light the Blessing Lantern?
As mentioned above, there are quite a number of Temples/Places that perform such Lighting of Blessing Lanterns for Devotees, but remember not to get Con.
Look for Temples with Main Deities which are Heavenly Deities.
Here are a few that Oneself can consider for the Lighting of the Blessing Lanterns for Geng Yin Year:

1 Sembawang Tian Hou Temple (三巴旺天后宮) – Admiralty Street (Woodlands Ave 10)
2 Tuas Pek Kong Temple (大士伯公宮) – 118 Boon Lay Drive (besides the Hawker Center)
3 Telok Blangah Tee Kong Temple (萬壽山天公廟) – Telok Blangah Height (besides Block 45)

Last of ALL, Long Shan Men will like to wish ALL of you, having a Joyous Lunar New Year ahead, everything is Smooth & everyone is enjoying Brightness in their Life.

春始花開顯富貴。

點燈求福樂連年。

光明長映消災厄。

處處平安貴人協。

妈祖,一个只在宋朝活了28个春秋的年轻女子


世上有数亿的虔诚信众,数千座遍布世界各地供奉她神像的宫庙。
民间,有“妈祖平安面”“妈祖服饰”和许多以妈祖命名的事物。。
地理上,有“妈祖镜”“妈祖书库”。。以妈祖命名的地标。。
文化界,有独特的“妈祖文化”。
历代皇帝无数次褒扬,史无前例超长近70个字的诏封。
一个只在宋朝活了28个春秋的年轻女子实在是令人无不驚叹和肃然起敬。

妈祖髻和妈祖装“帆船头、海蓝裳,红黑裤子保平安。”

湄洲女的服装,上身是蓝色和红色搭配的斜襟大布衫,下面是红黑两截拼成的裤子。相传这是妈祖生前最喜欢的装束,由于妈祖常年在海上,红色的裤子被海水打湿成黑色,久而久之就演变成现在红黑的样式。 据当地人说,蓝色比喻大海,红黑分别象征吉祥与思念。

帆船头又称妈祖髻是妈祖自创的发型,妈祖为了证明自己将终身献给了大海,矢志一生行善助人,拯危扶难,济世救人,一辈子侍奉双亲不嫁的决心。

将长发梳得像船帆一样,左右各插上一支波浪形的发卡,象征船桨;盘在发笈里的红头绳,代表船上的缆绳;一根银钗横向穿过发髻代表船上的锚。 

这就是湄洲女现在最典型的装扮。

妈祖诞来临----2010年5月6日

谷歌,你为什么要离开?

科技的发达,把世界变小了。通过互联网联系,我们瞬息间就能和世界各地的朋友畅谈、互通互动。

打开新加坡品牌网你会找到三巴旺天后宫
谢谢,能把三巴旺天后宫介绍给全世界,这真是我们的荣幸!!
但是,中国的朋友向我投诉:“你能再设个网页吗?http://sbwthk.blogspot.com/ 我们开不了啊!”。
唉!谁叫我把博客设在Blogspot.com呢?
当初,那是免费又最具人气的啊!

谷歌,中国那么大,竟然没有你容身之处。我好伤心啊!

抱歉,祈福灯笼又断货了!(4月7日讯:货到了!)

今年,三巴旺天后宫订的货柜连连出状况。
早在农历十月,天后宫的祈福灯笼已经没有了,好多香客循例在十二月初八到庙里来询问,我们只能一再的道歉。后来才发现供应商根本没有收到我们的订货单,这时,工厂开始生产已经是赶不及发货了。接着,货柜到了海关又发生“查箱”事件,结果,一再延误,直到大年初二,我们的货柜才姗姗来迟。

大年除夕,本来应该挂上数千个灯笼的天后宫,今年显得很“素净”,一扫往年的“盛妆”,还真让大家有点不习惯。

唉!!!年年难过年年过。非常抱歉,现在,我们的祈福灯笼又断货了!

大悲心陀羅尼經 - 觀世音菩薩告訴大梵王:「先誦持大悲咒五遍,並取五色線,合成一條繩索,再誦大悲咒二十一遍,有不可思議的神妙功效。」
民间相信五色线代表 - 1健康与智慧;2桃花运跟人际关系,及对外发展能量;3不动产的好运气;4名气与散发在外面的能量,还有事业;5财运。

这就是为何五色线具有不可思议的神秘力量,流传千年的答案。

妈祖宴在新加坡


(本博综合讯)来自妈祖故乡的莆田市烹饪协会,新近在新加坡举办全新的妈祖宴品尝会。

  新加坡新明晚报饮食记者许瑞霞评价:“你可以看得出是师傅很用心,视觉设计上非常的精致。因为跟妈祖文化结合在一起,所以你吃这道菜又好像有妈祖在保佑你的感觉。”

  为了准备全新妈祖宴,莆田的名厨们可谓煞费苦心,以手工线面为主要原料,加上烘焙紫菜、花生、金针、煎鸡蛋等有着吉祥喻意的配料做成的主食,人人都知叫做“妈祖寿面”。用整条鱼做成船型,用食品、海鲜类做成船桨,组成一道形象逼真的“碧海龙舟”,它的名字叫“惠普慈航”,寓意妈祖“济航拯溺,神佑海疆”,其他还有“镇海平番”、“圣灵之光”、“天妃赐子”等,十三道妈祖宴菜每一道菜的名字都与妈祖有关。

  中国驻新加坡大使馆二等秘书白延雷称赞:“我觉得让我吃起来有一种感动,它给我们带来这样一种祥和的,一种平安的这样一种感动.”

妈祖宴菜的发明人为莆田王文基。宴菜依妈祖故乡民间习俗共设计十三道,主要以莆田当地最地道的优质食材作为菜品主料。同时,根据每道菜品的食材或造型特点,结合妈祖传说、典故、封号和祥瑞之语等进行命名。

妈祖宴首次走出国门之所以选择新加坡,不仅由于新加坡人对莆田菜有很大的接受度和认可,更重要的是新加坡人对海上女神妈祖也十分信仰。

媽祖 (韓寶儀主唱)

你咁有聽見 (韓寶儀主唱)

媽祖靈驗傳奇:

Mazu and Mazu Culture

Over 1,000 years ago, a beautiful young girl by the name of Lin Mu was born at the Xianliang Port of Meizhou Bay in Putian, Fujian Province. Clever, brave and kind-hearted, Lin Mu could forecast the weather and was happy to help fishermen in distress at sea. She encouraged the people to conquer nature and defeat evil, so she was much loved and esteemed by the people in her hometown. Unfortunately she died an early death at only 28. As the legend goes, she ascended to heaven and became an immortal at Meizhou Bay located opposite to the Xianliang Port.

For more over 1,000 years, she has been living, with a composed and tender smile, in the hearts of the people. The people pay homage to her, respectfully calling her fairy, the daughter of dragon, goddness, the mother or Mazu ( a title of respect for an aged woman): rulers of past dynasties upheld her and granted her the titles of "Lady", "Heavenly Queen" and "Holy Mother"; the times have bestowed her a series of loveable and respected names such as "Goddess of the Sea", "Goddness of the the Straits" and "Goddess of Peace of the Straits".
She is none other than the world-renowned Mazu, goddess of the sea, of Fujian, China.
The respect for Mazu has turned into a wide-spread belief with the passage of time. Following the footprints of sea merchants and overseas Chinese, Mazu went out of Putian, out of Fujian and out of China, making her presence in many corners of Asia, America, Australia and Europe. Consequently, over 1,500 Mazu temples are found all over the world, where Muzu from Meizhou are consecrated. The belief in Mazu has become a sort of transnational folk belief with more than 100 million worshippers. However, different from a religion in the ordinary sense, is a special kind of ideology connected with theology, religion, folklore, sociology as well as the history of sea commnication overseas Chinese, culture and the development of Fujian and Taiwan. This is the culture of Mazu which has aroused an extensive interest and great attention of Chinese and foreign scholars and is now under integral part of the culture of the Chinese nation and a part of the brilliant civilization of China.


In recent years, there are a number of academic groups, experts and scholars working on research of Mazu and published special works on the subject in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao regions and in such countries as Japan, the United States, France, Singapore and Malaysia. The research on the Mazu culture has a great appeal and cohesive force to the Chinese both at home and abroad. Now the achievements in the research on the Mazu culture have become valuable material in the research on the history of navigation, science, overseas Chinese, development of off-shore islands and economic and cultural exchanges with foreign countries as well as the history of folklore and religion of ancient China.
