When five bats are put together (wu fu) in Feng Shui, it stands for five kinds of blessings, namely heath, relationship, wealth, virtue, and the desire to die a natural death in old age.

A very popular Chinese charm featuring five auspicious bats biting on a coin. The coin is embossed with the characters for "Wealth Inviting" on one side and "Five Types of Blessings Approaching" on the other. Coin is called Qian in Chinese which also sounds like "before" while Bat is Fu (sounds like good fortune). Hence a depiction of bat with a coin in front connotes "Good Fortune is before you eyes"!.

Unlike in the West where this nortunal animal is usually feared and often associated with vampire, the Bat is an popular symbol to the Chinese – this is because the sound for “bat” in the Chinese language, “fook” is similar to the word “Fuk”, which is closely related to the phrase for happiness and good fortune. When five bats are put together (wu fu), it stands for five kinds of blessings, namely heath, relationship, wealth, virtue, and the desire to die a natural death in old age.

In ancient China, the Bat was an adorned figure by the emperors and government officials; having the emblem of a Bat sewn into their robes was a sign of high status, and high income. Combined with other auspicious animals such as the dragon or the crane, these robes were icons of long life and good fortune for those who wore them. Figurines of Bats were also held by distinguished deities such as Chung Kwei and Sau Sing Kung, to show their superiority and prosperity.

Contrary to western belief, the Bat is not a symbol of darkness or evils. It has the ability to do good for its owner, attracting prosperity energy and driving away bad forces which could cause illness, diseases and untimely death.

Feng Shui tips to position the bat for its best benefits:

Mentor Luck, Nobleman Luck or "Gui Ren" luck is the kind of luck that will bring you a good samaritan or someone kind and helpful who will give you a lending hand or a life-changing push during times of distress, trouble and difficulty; not necessarily in the form of money but also opportunities, wise advice, support, encouragement or simply be there to listen.

2) It is believed that when you place five Bats in the same vicinity, they will bring the power of the Five Blessings, bringing the beholder enlightenment and everlasting happiness.

3) To summon success and good fortune luck into your work place, hang this good luck charm from the wall of your office, preferably in an area behind where you sit.

4) Bats symbol can be displayed from the walls or surfaces in many areas of your home, such as the bedroom, living room, dining room, kitchen or library. It can also be hung in the car.
