The Five Yellow is one of the most feared afflictions brought by the flying stars. It causes all kinds of obstacles to manifest, disrupting the best-laid plans and bringing misfortune, heartache, and loss. In 2024, the Five Yellow flies to the West.
This year’s Five Element Pagoda features the White Umbrella Goddess mantra on its base, with the Chinese couplet “Bringing peace and protection against harm.” The White Umbrella Goddess is a deity who manifests her power with her thousand heads, arms, and legs; it is believed that just viewing her mantra protects against illness, disasters, and spiritual harm and brings great auspiciousness.
In 2024, when the world’s energies go through such a significant change from the changeover new period, there is nothing like invoking the blessings of the White Umbrella Goddess.
