What is a GuanYin Divination?
A GuanYin divination is a buddhist/taoist ritual to seek an answer to a single question or plea from Bodhisattva GuanYin. The ritual requires a divination cylinder containing 100 numbered bamboo sticks and a pair of “wooden moon blocks” called 筊杯. The moon block is a moon-shaped block of wood with a rounded side and a flat side.
A divination (求签）is performed after praying to Bodhisattva GuanYin. The devotee takes the divination cylinder and moon blocks before the altar. The moon blocks are first thrown to see if GuanYin is ready to take the devotee’s plea. Toss the moon blocks until a flat side and a rounded side are faced up. (求签之前，先确认神明是否在案前，需求得一圣杯，若求到阴杯或是笑杯，则再重覆此步骤。)
Devotees consults GuanYin with a single question or plea in mind, while shaking the cylinder until a single stick falls out. Next a pair of moon blocks are tossed to confirm the validity of the divination lot.
-The lot is valid if one flat side and one rounded side are faced up, the devotee’s question is answered by the lot.
-The lot is denied if both rounded sides are faced up, the devotee’s question should not be asked again in the near future.
-The lot is undecided if both flat sides are faced up, the devotee’s question is not concise or is undecided. The devotee may redraw the lot again. This may also appear If the devotee already have an answer in mind or knows that the time is not right.
Once a valid lot is confirmed, the devotee can retrieve a divination slip containing the divination verse (签诗) corresponding to the lot number from the temple. Every verse is a 28 words poem with a particular meaning associated to it. This verse can then be interpreted from the free books in the temple (in English and Chinese).
