Where are Your Sources?

One well known Qi master came all the way from Germany to study Feng Shui from me. We take a lot of efforts to explain the physical geography and the scientific planetary astronomy which are the true basis of Feng Shui and astrology. He knows that we are the only group teaching a highly scentific Feng Shui very different from those currently touted in many so-called schools. He knows that we took great pains to examine the ancient texts to get the true basis of the original Feng Shui.

After studying from me the last few years, he came to one conclusion. All these former masters he learnt from, they really know nothing. He flung his arms outwards and realised with great sadness that all these so-called masters just know nothing.

He recounted to me that he purposedly asked one master which are the sources of their teachings on Feng Shui and astrology. He found the answer disturbing, for the standard answer was: "This is how my master taught me, and his masters before." There was no mention of how the ancient texts form the basis of their teachings.

Of course, when I forced him to read the ancient texts to see what the Sung and Tang masters really say, he saw the enormous contradictions of most current teachings with what the ancient texts really say. The Qi master opinionated that what the current masters used are merely rather recent texts from the late 1800s and early 1900s, and these have deviated much from the much more ancient texts.

So, what are the sources of your learning?

Confucius knew much about Feng Shui and wrote down much of Feng Shui in his texts

Confucius Wrote Down the Second Oldest Feng Shui Texts

Modern practitioners may vaguely believe that their Feng Shui came down from Tang dynasty Feng Shui master Yang Yun Sung, or the Ming dynasty master Jiang Da Hong.

  • However, one passage in Xue Xin Fu, the Tang dynasty Feng Shui text, specifically hails Confucius as the Feng Shui master!

    XXF 440 Even though calling it water, how to get the water, who know sage Confucius' heart?
    XXF 441 To the greatest extend believe the book saying but is inferior to no book, still want to have a sharp vision.

    Confucian sages and men of virtue enjoy mountain enjoy water's true heart means. comment to Xue Xin Fu, Book 4, Chapter 4

In fact, the physical landform around Confucius' tombs was mentioned as a top model for Feng Shui!

  • XXF 433 Tai mountain (Tai Shan) the foot hill branches, water criss-cross flowing, Kong Ling (Confucius's park or jungle) is most luxuriant.
    XXF 434 Inside dragon tiger mountain the wind is not blowing, the immortal garden forever long lasting.

We have emphasised many times through our books, courses, and web articles that Confucius was a great Feng Shui master. He studied from Lao Zi and examined the Feng Shui of Luoyang and its anceastral temple. Confucius recorded down the specific Feng Shui lore in his Li Chi, Book of Rites. His Four Classics and Five Books were peppered with pertinent Feng Shui references. His Shu King, Book of History, devotes two chapters to the founding of Luoyang on a Feng Shui basis.

Much of what Tang dynasty master Yang Yun Sung and Jin dynasty master Guo Po knew actually drew much from what Confucius recorded down. It is really foolish for some to claim Confucius knew no Feng Shui. These people just betray that they do not read enough.

Furthermore, what Confucius compiled are only the second oldest texts on Feng Shui. There is another far older text about Feng Shui!


Coming: book on Shan Hai Jing and its shaman magic and Feng Shui
Enigma of Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic

The amazing thing about our deep research into Feng Shui and astrology is the finding that the oldest extant text about Feng Shui is the enigmatic Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic, reputedly compiled in the 3rd millennium BC, long before Confucius was born.

Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic have long puzzled both Chinese and international scholars, owing to the descriptions of strange and fantastic beings and creatures. Beings with one body but several heads or one head but several bodies must seem to exist ony in wild dreams. Guo Po, that Jin dynasty master who wrote Zhang Shu, Book of Burial, wrote an analysis of Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic, and labelled these fantastic creatures of Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic as rubbish. However, those fantastic things Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic wrote about exist! It is only that puzzled commentators did not know enough global geography and biology to understand. Many of these puzzling beings existed outside ancient China and thus the Chinese scholars including Guo Po had long been bewildered by them. The remarkable fact is that these puzzling things can be seen even today!

What is pertinent is that many analysts have long recognised that Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic is a shaman book. Much of Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic relate to an ancient worship sacrifice system dating back to at least 2000 BC. Many of the Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic objects relate to this ancient worship sacrifice system which had profound Feng Shui roots.

  • What is particularly ill-recognised is that Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic describes a Feng Shui actually used by Yellow Emperor Huang Di as well as Ta Yu, the reputed inventor of the Luo Shu. This was a very ancient Feng Shui

    Practitioners have vaguely recognised Ta Yu as one of the original Feng Shui masters, along with Fu Xi and the Yellow Emperor. Did not Fu Xi discover the Hetu on the dragon horse and Ta Yu the Luo Shu on the tortoise shell? But have these modern practitioners read the ancient texts which show what Feng Shui were practised by Yellow Emperor and Ta Yu? Well, their Feng Shui practices are actually described in Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic!.

    What is astonishing but logical is that the Feng Shui applied by Yellow Emperor Huang Di and Ta Yu in Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic is a universal one, also adopted universally among the other ancient cultures.


Our Research into the Feng Shui of Shan Hai Jing

Both Chinese scholars down the ages as well as modern Western analysts have tried to decipher the meanings of Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic. To accept that Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic has significant Feng Shui applications, one must first accept that it is a truthful text.

We have re-translated the text from Mandarin into English and re-evaluate what the passages really mean.

  • One of the first things to recognise is that, although going back to 2000 BC, the text actually describes animals like hummingbirds, opposum, snapping turtles, rattesnakes. These are animals found in the Americas. Objects not found in ancient China include the cowries, vultures.

    The author agrees with some who have concluded that much of Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic refer to the Americas and in some places to Australia and Africa.

  • As noted earlier, what stumped many are the references to fantastic beings. Careful considerations have deciphered practically what all these fantastic beings are. Some are ill-understood biological forms. Some are actually totemic objects still seen in heritage sites of the ancient cultures.

According to legends, Emperor Yao, circa 2400 BC, had ordered Ta Yu and his assistant Feng I the Divine Archer to survey the world after the Great Deluge in order to re-assess the new landforms patterns which had occurred. Ta Yu, Feng I and their groups transversed the globe and recorded their sightings into the Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic. Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic is no fable but a truthful travel log with much geographical, biological and social dictations!

Hint: those who have traveled the ancient heritage sites all over the world should re-look carefully at what they saw. These ancient heritage sites recorded down many strange creatures which are actually recorded as fantastic beings in Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic. These modern travelers would see what Ta Yu and Feng I saw 4,000 years ago!

  • However, while marvelling at the geographical sense of Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic, the author is more fascinated by what the text says about the original Feng Shui practised by the Yellow Emperor and Ta Yu back 4,000 years ago.


Where are the ancient texts showing how Yellow Emperor Huang Di, Ta Yu and the like practise Feng Shui?

Huang Di was reputed to be a "world emperor", meaning he ruled the whole world. The Feng Shui he practised must be one also found in ancient cultures other than that of China. His Feng Shui is described in the Shan Hai Jing!

Feng Shui of Yin Premises of Yellow Emperor and Ta Yu

Confucius recorded down:

  • "When a superior man is about to engage in building, the ancestral temple should have his first attention, the stables and arsenal the next, and the residences the last." [Li Chi, Bk. I, 11, Pt. I, 9. Cf. "She King," Pt. III, Bk. J, Ode III, and Legge's note, S.B.E., Vol. III, p. 384.]

The above principle of the Feng Shui of the ancestor temple had to exist sometime before Confucius recorded it. This principle had to pre-exist in some more ancient texts than Confucius. One of these more ancient texts who described the Feng Shui is actually Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic.

Analysts would recognise that Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic is a shaman text with many references to ancestor temple sacrificial worship systems. What is intriguing but ill-understood is that these ancient ancestor temple sacrificial worship systems alluded to critical landform Feng Shui guidelines. Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic has several passages about Feng Shui. These Feng Shui guidelines form major basis of what Confucius recorded down.

It is not the aim or purpose of this article to fully interpret Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic. However, as an indication of its reference to the practice of Feng Shui by Ta Yu, we will give one example here:

  • Also east 10 li, Qing Yao (Green Request) Mountain, really maintain emperor secret capital. North looks to He Qu (River Song), is much sail birds (seagulls or albatross). South looks to Shan Zhu (Altar Bank), Yu Fu (Ta Yu Father) his changing place, is much servant together, monocot flowerting plants black. God miltary manager take-charge, is human face leopard markings, small waist, white teeth, bore ear muscial objects, it sounds like singing jade. Is mountain also, suitable female child. Shan Hai Jing 5.28a

    Also east 40 li, called He (Harmony) Mountain, up no grasses or trees and much precioius stone and green jade, Shi Wei (Fruit only) river 9 capital, is mountain also 5 bends, 9 water goes out here, join northward flow pours into Luo, itsiddle (area) much dark blue jade. Auspicious god Tai Feng (Peace Meet) , it is like human face tiger's tail, is good place unknown Bei Mountain at south, emerges enters have light. Tai Feng (Highest Chance) god moves Heaven Earth qi also. Shan Hai Jing 5.31

The passage is about a site established by Emperor Ta Yu back around 2205 BC. It has the auspicious Feng Shui features of a southern frontage to an altar and 9 turnings of the river. It was full of light and qi. It was an ancient Feng Shui site! It shows how Ta Yu applied Feng Shui.

  • Practitioners have long parroted that Ta Yu found the Feng Shui associated with the Luo Shu. It is time they realise that this Feng Shui applied by Ta Yu is found within the pages of Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic.

    Other passages show that this Feng Shui also related to Yellow Emperor and other ancient emperors like Shun, Shao Hao and Di Jun. Theirs is the real original potent Feng Shui, not the "half past six" things commercially promoted today.


Are you studying the ancient texts? Or, do you just receive what you know from your master, and he from the previous master, and so on?
Ancient Original Feng Shui Intergrated with Ancestor Worship Rituals

Practitioners of the many modern Feng Shui schools are committing serious harmful errors as they do not study the ancient texts and the historical testimony. Manchu Qing Emperor Kang Hsi lamented:

  • "Siting experts have a great deal to say, not from books about how the great sages and worthies of ancient times made their selections, but rather from books fabricated by people later on to suit themselves..." (Ole Bruun 2003 p.66).

Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic also shows that the ancient potent Feng Shui has to be integrated with worship rituals. Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic has not only many passages about Feng Shui but also about worship rituals. Here is one pertinent worshjip ritual:

  • 1.10a: All 10 mountains, 2,950 li. Have god condition each bird's body with dragon's head, its ancestor worship its ceremony: hair (value) use one stone jade bury (sacrifice), sacrifical rice use sticky rice, [at] one wall, unhulled rice, white grass serve as mat.

    Comments. Verse 1.10 describes a worship ceremony at a mountain, presumably its foothill. There appears to be two physical sections, and inner one where glutinos rice would be offered and another outer section along the wall unhulled rice.


Secrets of the connections between Feng Shui and astrology to the sacred mandala universally found in the ancient cultures have been lost, but are being recovered in our Center.
Back in 2205 BC, Shan Hai Jing, Mountain Seas Classic spells out a Feng Shui intimately integrated with ancestor worship rituals.

Then, around 600 BC, Confucius recorded down an emphasis on the ancestor worship system:

  • "When a superior man is about to engage in building, the ancestral temple should have his first attention, the stables and arsenal the next, and the residences the last."Li Chi, Bk. I, 11, Pt. I, 9. Cf. "She King," Pt. III, Bk. J, Ode III, and Legge's note, S.B.E., Vol. III, p. 384.]

Later, 2,000 after Confucius. circa AD 1600, the Ming dynasty Feng Shui master Jiang Da Hong also emphasised the top priority of the ancestor worship Feng Shui:

  • Commenting on house god ancestor temple is the most crucial, that why people maintaining and building temples to be the priority. Tian Yuan Wu Ge 4.35

You have to bring back the ancestor worship rituals into Feng Shui!
