THE talk on how to improve health and wealth through Vasthu Sastra (Indian feng shui) by Sunday Star Ancient Secrets columnist T. Selva drew a big crowd.
Many were seen standing at Straits Quay’s first floor lobby as seats were all taken.
“The elements ether, fire, water, earth and air influence our environment and we must be in harmony with these natural forces to enjoy health, wealth and happiness,” Selva said.
Selva also advised potential house buyers not to choose units located at T-junctions as the buyers might suffer from health problems later and their expenditure would exceed their income.
“Pyramids can be used effectively for healing. It is a spiritual symbol with four sloping sides that emits positive energy,” he added.
Selve then gave out 250 micro-pyramid chips of various colours to the 300-odd audience who eagerly jostled for the chips.
The crowd also took the opportunity to snap up Selva’s book ‘Vasthu Sastra Guide’ and other Indian feng shui ornaments at a makeshift stall set up during the talk.
Selva also advised the audience not to rear fish as it was inauspicious and sinful to keep marine lives trapped.
Gleneagles Medical Centre consultant nephrologist Dr Goh Heong Keong said there were around 5,000 people diagnosed as patients with end-stage renal failure annually in Malaysia.
He encouraged the public to pledge as an organ donor.
Other speakers were Pantai Hospital Penang obstetrician and gynecologist Dr R.M. Udayar Pandian Ramanchandhiran who spoke on menopause and consultant urologist Dr Git Kah Ann who gave a talk on prostate cancer.
Another speaker was GMC consultant orthopaedic surgeon Dr Siva Kumar Ariaret who spoke on ‘Knees Arthritis Manage-ment’.
