1000-Light & An Tai Sui Dharma Rites
Pacify your year or request a blessing for yourself or your business.
Extinguish Spiritual Obstacles, Alleviate Disasters and Suffering.

Why register for An Tai Sui ceremony?

In Chinese astrology every year is governed by a zodiac sign. Your luck, success, and prosperity is affected by the ruling zodiac sign of the current year. If your personal zodiac sign does not have a favorable relationship with the sign of the current year, it can cause challenging circumstances throughout the year. This protective, life-enhancing prayer ceremony is of exclusive benefit to those born under any of the four zodiac signs that are in conflict with or offending the upcoming year’s ruling sign, and registering on the An Tai Sui beneficiary list. Those born under the “offending” Chinese zodiac animal signs are strongly recommended to register for the An Tai Sui Dharma Rite. This ceremony extinguishes personal spiritual obstacles, and creates good spiritual cause for overflowing financial resources; extinguishes disasters, suffering, and difficulties. Businesses can also benefit, we will pray for the business to enjoy successful litigations and have a promising future.
