Well it’s your health. A Calabash or a Wu-Lu as it is called is symbolic of longevity and health. According to Chinese mythology, Wu-Lu is associated with the god of longevity (Sau Sing). Wu-Lu, as such, is a dried gourd believed to hold the elixir of health and longevity.
As tradition would have it, a Wu-Lu was used as a water container and Taoist monks used it to absorb evil spirits and imprison them for life. The Wu-Lu has a typical shape and represents the amazing integration of heaven, earth and mankind. The top half is heaven and the bottom half is earth.
A Wu-Lu when placed in the eastern sector of your living room or the dining room brings about good health of the whole family.
Hanging a Wu-Lu in the car prevents accidents as it absorbs poison and kills shar chi’ (negative energy) and thus acts as a protective shield.
If a person is prone to sickness, a Wu-Lu hung in the bedroom or by the bedside prevents occurrence of health problems.
Place or hang a set of Wu-Lus on both sides of the bed of a person suffering from long drawn sickness.
