Special articles from Dr. Ong's monumental scientific astronomical research into Chinese astrology and Feng Shui. Gui Management Centre is making available preliminary findings of our highly scientific research into Chinese astrology and Feng Shui, backed up by intensive analysis of the ancient texts.

The Unique Feng Shui Texts

Although many claimed that their Feng Shui comes all the way from Tang grandmaster Yang Yun Sung, circa AD 900, they do not really study, much less understand, the ancient texts of Yang Yun Sung!

One master had stated that he had read the Mandarin version of Yang Yun Sung's Han Lung Jing, Arousing Dragon,, but was honest enough to admit that he found the text very difficult to understand. GUI Management Centre has a large project translating the ancient Mandarin texts of Feng Shui and astrology into English and elucidating their true meanings. Back in 2008, Dr Ong Hean Tatt had Han Lung Jing translated from Mandarin into English along with an exhaustative commentary published.

Using a strong knowledge of physical geography, Dr Ong had found it easy to crack the secrets of Han Lung Jing. Using a similar scientific approach, he had been able to unravel the secrets of that other text of Yang Yun Sung, vis Yi Lung Jing, Doubtful Dragon.


These two ancient texts of Han Lung Jing and Yi Lung Jing provide a comprehensive deep explanation of what Form Luan Tou Feng Shui is really about. They were surprisingly written in a systematic format.

Both documents are concerned with the Luan Tou Feng Shui features of that auspicious place known as the Xue, or Dragon Cave, or Ming Tang the "Bright Hall". The astonishing thing is that modern practitioners are unaware of what these significant ancient texts say, and the alarming result is that major parts of modern Feng Shui have seriously deviated from the Feng Shui taught by Yang Yun Sung back in AD 900.

Identifying Auspicious and Inauspicious Features

All Feng Shui and astrology are concerned with enhancing the auspicious qi aspects while countering the inauspicious sha features. Checking with Han Lung Jing and Yi Lung Jing reveal that there are much nonsense teachings in modern Feng Shui!

Han Lung Jing and Yi Lung Jing are meant to complement each other. The Han Lung Jing is more concerned with the auspicious aspects, but has also identified the general features of the inauspicious mountains. But it is the Yi Lung Jing which mostly addresses the problems of identifying the auspicious hsueh. It describes various defects which will identify the inauspicious areas through three sections, which deal sequentially with 3 types of defects, vis:

  • 1. Upper Chapter:
    Defects of water retention, leaking water flows and windy terrain in the hsueh
  • 2. Middle Chapter:
    Defects of rocky terrain and multiple hsuehs
  • 3. Lower Chapter:
    Inauspicious sites along ridges, rushing waters.

The last two sections are interesting, as it shows that even within a hsueh there can be less auspicious spots. They deal with the fine tuning of the final position of the Ming Tang within the hsueh .

Examples of Errors in Modern Feng Shui

Much of Yi Lung Jing supports the principles of the armchair shaped physical features corresponding to the Four Cardinal Beasts as emphasised by Yang Yun Sung in his Han Lung Jing :

  • Also having high mountain that is Xuan Wu, the Xuan Wu dropping (crouching) place is the four animals' gathering place. The gathering place is the place Lung gather star, where four animals do not visit is emptiness. On the Kong Wang Lung place do not go to find hsueh, even though having hsueh also easy to die and extinguish. Han Lung Jing 53-55

  • At the back of dragon and tiger there are Ee Ji (referring to the front collar or the front and back pieces of a cloth), these are Guan Guan Bai Wu Xiu (government barrier praying (visiting) the dancing sleeves). Yi Lung Jing 103.

The auspicious armchair formation with the side Dragon-Tiger ridges has a South frontage associated with the Red Phoenix, one of the four animals. It actually means that Feng Shui approaches teaching other directions away from the South for frontage are fakes. In the traditional auspicious formation the water flow will also exit via the South frontage. This means that a lot of so-called water theories, which can recommend other exit directions, are nonsense.

The auspicious place must have water and be free from winds:

  • 87. Ming Tang appreciates the water like appreciates the blood, avoid the wind in the hsueh like avoid the thieves.

    209. In between the two mountains must have water, mountain and water inter sandwiched are the important sources.

Barren places common in urban cities are essentially inauspicious! Many condomoniums complexes lacking plants are highly inauspicious! There are so-called Xuan Kong practitioners who go around saying that this or that condomonium has auspicious numbers or Guas combinations - they do not really know and are bluffing!


The surface of the Sun is not homogeneous. The different segments on the surface of the Sun emit different solar radiation. As the Earth orbits around the Sun, the Earth will receive different solar radiation through the months and seasons of the year.

This heterogeneous surface of the Sun is a major astronomical basis of Xuan Kong Feng Shui and even Zi Wei Dou Shu

A common mistake, betraying the lack of understanding of the ancient texts, is that of not realising that the Ming Tang is a large area and not a small restricted space in front of a door.

  • 156. Water and mountain intermingled forming as table mountain, only fear that the Ming Tang is narrow and not wide.

    336. The Ming Tang is very wide, the qi is also very wide, An (table) mountain very near and forceful will cause people to be very fierce and stubborn.

Small, narrow, constricted areas create fierce and stubborn people!

Yi Lung Jing also has a number of passages which show that current Feng Shui applied to Yin premises and tombs are in great errors.

Frankly speaking, if you have never read and study Han Lung Jing and Yi Lung Jing, your level of Feng Shui is only so so. Your understanding of Feng Shui, particularly Xuan Kong Feng Shui, is always in doubt and never stable, and you will be susceptible to changes in views.

Some of the faked aspects also affect the Ba Zi Eight Characters divination, which is actually an inferior astrology extracted from a small part of Zi Wei Dou Shu.

Further Research

Although Han Lung Jing and Yi Lung Jing concentrate on Form Luan Tou Feng Shui, their principles have to be understood if one wants to go further and master Xuan Kong Feng Shui, which is quite a high level of Feng Shui.

It may be said that Compass practitioners have made a mess out of "Xuan Kong Feng Shui."

Unable to penetrate texts like the Han Lung Jing, Yi Lung Jing, Green Satchels, many could not understand what Tian Yu Jing and Du Tian Bao Zhou Jing explain about the astrological interactions between the San Pan Gua (linked to the 3 Auspicious) and the 6 Siews. Also ill-understood is that, as known by Lai Bu Yi, Xuan Kong Feng Shui is intimately linked with Zi Wei Dou Shu astrology!

We have just translated Guo Po's Yu Zhao Ding Zhen Jing, a text written in a similar way as Tian Yu Jing. It indicates that Yang Yun Sung was studying Yu Zhao Ding Zhen Jing, when he was writing Tian Yu Jing.

The major weakness in those trying to understand these ancient texts is their lack of knowledge of geography and astronomy. All the Feng Shui and related astrology are based on geography and astronomy. Nothing happens by magic and superstition but must have logical scientific causes.

  • Using the geography and astronomy approach as well as reference to the ancient history, it is possible to unravel the meanings of many other ancient Feng Shui and astrology texts.

Many findings are new and may disturb current views, but practitioners should be proactive to advance further.

Read and study the ancient before Ming Feng Shui and astrology texts. Do not be bluffed anymore!
