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.
A few years back a momentous event occurred which greatly facilitated the deciphering of the meanings of the ancient Feng Shui and astrology texts. Grandmaster Francis Leyau had requested me to evaluate with him the ancient Feng Shui texts of Green Satchels, i.e. Qing Nang Jing, Qing Nang Xu and Qing Nang Aow Yi. He was surprised that I had found it easy to understand and interpret the Green Satchels.
The Green Satchels form part of the 5 books forming the Di Li Bian Zheng, the remaining two books being Tian Yu Jing and Du Tian Bao Chou Jing.
The Ming Feng Shui master Jiang Da Hong had tried his hand in interpreting the 5 books. People in his days did not agree with his interpretations and accused him of trying to bluff them. Around 1930's renegade master Tan Yang Wu, who renounced Fei Xing for Liu Fa, also tried his hand in interpreting Di Li Bian Zheng, once from the Xuan Kong Fei Xing viewpoint before he renounced Fei Xing and then later another from Xuan Kong Liu Fa viewpoint. Tan Yang Wu claimed that certain parts of Di Li Bian Zheng were practically not understood even up to his days. Tan Yang Wu's case shows how easy it is to be so sure but would change later!
As Francis said, everyone interpreted according to his school!
Practitioners have found the ancient Feng Shui and astrology texts difficult to understand. One master admitted that he read Han Lung Jing and gave up. A student of mine looked up a Mandarin commentary to Zhang Shu and said he could not take head or tail what was discussed. Many so-called Mandarin commentaries proved to be nothing more than re-phrasings which continue to leave readers frustrated in the dark.
The Di Li Bian Zheng is supposed to be a Bible of Xuan Kong Feng Shui. If the text is so difficult to penetrate one would wonder whether the differing schools have anything right at all. It is definitely due to the difficulty in understanding that the different schools arose, with contradicting views.
Francis had asked me to interpret as he felt that I had a fresh mind and would not be prejudiced to read according to any particular school.
