Master Pushou of Tampines
Master Pushou 普寿师父 of Tampines St 11 is a very ordinary looking old man with great abilities. He is the spiritual teacher of a Buddhist group "Sakya Mee Toh Hall". The name Pushou was given to him by Ven Hongchuan, the late abbot of Bright Hill temple. Already 69 this year, he had the ability to see various supernatural beings since very young. During his late 30s he suddenly gained the ability to chant Buddhist kathas and use various methods to help people with spiritual problems, all without any master to teach him. Throughout the past few decades, he had tried to ask many famous highly attained masters why he possessed all those abilities, but gained no satisfactory answer. He only managed to find out that he was Lord Buddha's relative from Queen Maya's tribe in his past life. Some of his followers also believed he is the incarnation of 财光佛 "Wealth Light Buddha", a unique Buddha image unlike any that most of us have ever seen.
The side altar in Master Pushou's house. His house was like a warehouse of all sorts of religious and occult artifacts.. which made me feel dizzy immediately after I stepped in. But I felt better after the master gave me some blessed water to drink.
The main altar in the house. The black statue in the middle is the "Wealth Light Buddha" which I mentioned earlier. Although it did not look like any Buddha image we know, there were many miraculous stories surrounding it, as told to me by the master. He hopes to be able to help more people with his special knowledge and guide them towards the right path.
