TRUTHS AND MYTHS IN FENG SHUI OF YIN PREMISES
Part 2. Myth of Accuracy in Tomb's Facing Direction

Prof. Dr.Ong Hean-Tatt. 11th January 2009

GUI Management Centre scientific research has finally unlocked the secrets of the ancient lores of Feng Shui and astrology. Powerful ancient mysteries are being unlocked!



Introduction

In the previous part we have discussed that Yang Yun Sung wrote Feng Shui of Yin premises is potent enough to be a causative basis for the long duration of the Han dynasty. He also emphasised that ancestor worship is the key to Feng Shui of Yin premises. However, modern conventional tomb Feng Shui contains a lot of deviations from what Yang Yun Sung taught.

Many are blindly following what their masters taught without comprehending their art

Inaccuracies in Magnetic Compass Readings

One hype is that practitioners of Feng Shui of Yin premises would warn that accuracy of even less than one degree in compass readings is required. This accuracy is said to be necessary especially with respect to avoiding the tomb's facing falling into one of the inauspicious Kung Mang (Death Emptiness) lines.

The Xuan Kong Fying Stars would claim that there are 48 Kung Mang lines. The Yang Kong group would claim this is rubbish as there are 72 Xiao Kung Mang and 8 Da Kung Mang lines. Who are right?

These warring schools miss the one great point.

They do not realise that it is scientifically impossible to get accurate compass readings of less than one degree! The Earth's magnetic pole is also not stable and has a gradual shift of at least 1.35 degree every 200 years, making long term compass accuracy impossible.

Ever use a modern GPS (Global Positioning System)? You will find that when the GPS is placed on a flat surface to eliminate variations due toi hand handling, its readings will still vary by at least one degree.

Hence, masters doing the same site have even claimed that the others got the wrong directions. Actually, the same person doing readings can get a few degrees variation, what more different persons.





Qian Long's Tomb


  • In early 2006, one group of Feng Shui enthusiasts claimed that the tomb of Manchu emperor, Qian Long, had an inauspicious Kung Mang "Death and Emptiness" direction. It was expressed that even an emperor with his Feng Shui advisers would make a mistake. However, back in 2005, a different group of Feng Shui enthusiasts led by a famous Yin Feng Shui master did not detect such a "Death and Emptiness" direction with Qian Long's tomb. Which group made the wrong readings?

    Frankly, I do not think Qian Long and his Feng Shui advisors, who would know so much about Feng Shui, would make such a mistake. As given below, there is a good explanation of serious implications for modern Feng Shui practice.



Ancient Compasses Not That Accurate

During the Tang dynasty period of Yang Yun Sung there were only the 24 divisions in the directions corresponding to the 24 Mountains. The 360 degrees compass was invented in AD 1200. Hence, how do some cook up that Yang Yun Sung taught a 360 degrees Feng Shui?

The Yang Gong school wrote that Yang Yung Sung wrote in his Tian Yu Jing, Heaven Jade Classic, about the 360 degrees:

  • In the Tuan Yu Jing it was stated, "Yang Gong Pan 360 Degrees, there are 5 Elements in it, these 5 elements belong to Sheng Qi to differentiate auspicious and inauspicious,as such each 15 Degrees Shan of 24 Shan in the Di Pan there are 3 Dragons to make up 72 Dragons. Under the 72 Dragons, each Dragon has 5 Degrees to make up of 360 Degrees,representing the Earth to rotate against the Sun, there is a Jia Zi for each day".


However, the truth is that Yang Yun Sung never wrote anything like that. For the said Tian Yu Jing passage never mentions any 360o! Most practitioners would not have read the ancient Feng Shui texts like Tian Yu Jing and would be misled by the quotation.

It is quite impossible for the AD 900 document of Tian Yu Jing to mention any 360 degrees, as the 360 degrees compass was invented only in AD 1200, basically a Western innovation.

You can judge the Yang Gong group for making that misleading quotation.



Chou Kung Tower, Luoyang, was a gigantic sundial system used by the imperial family in "Watching the Red Sparrow", i.e. to detect the status of the qi at the different seasons of the year. It underscores that one essential feature of the Ming Tang is a South facing.

The variations in the solar shadow as measured by an instrument like the Chou Kung tower form the Yin Yang image.

The direction finding of this Chou Kung tower is far more accurate than the compass. The image drawn by the variation in the solar shadow can be divided into accurate divisions. Yet the ancient Luopan never have more than 24 divisions. The 360 degrees Luopan is a later invention adopting Western innovation and has no place in ancient Feng Shui.


Testimony from the Imperial Tombs

Owing to the susceptibility of wooden structures to fire, only few above ground imperial structures like the Ming and Qing palaces still remain. However, a wide range of imperial tombs, being built with massive stone structures, do survive.





Each imperial tomb was built as soon as the new emperor ascended the throne. The emperor himself would take interest in supervising the construction of his tomb which might take many years. The layout of the tomb was thus laid down very early, long before the death of the emperor. The imperial tomb was usually established along a courtyard system, like the courtyard system of the imperial palace. Pertinent to our discussion is the Soul tower right in front of the tumulus where the coffin would be placed. In this tower is the huge stone tablet inscribed with the name of the emperor and his achevements. This is of course equivalent to the modern tombstone with the name and particulars of the deceased.


If you look at the imperial tomb, you will find that the imperial stone tablet is aligned with the entrances and external tortoise stele in a straight line along the main axis. This auspicious Feng Shui concept was also called the theory of Ze Zhong Lun, or "Choosing the Center".

No one shifts the imperial stele tablet, equivalent to the modern tombstone, to face any socalled auspicious direction. All those shiftings of tombstones to get auspicious facings are nonsense!

In extension to Yang premises, all those shiftings of doors are also nonsense.

The auspicious Feng Shui concept of Ze Zhong Lun must not be violated.



Mouling, Qing mausoleum in Western Mausoleum

Each tomb was started to be built early during the reign of the emperor.

At the rear is the tumulus area where the coffin would be buried. In front of the tumulus is the Soul Tower where lies the stone tablet inscribed with the emperor's particulars. This stone tablet is in line with the entrances of the tomb layout all of which are aligned along the main axis of the tomb.

There is no tilting or shifting of the stone tablet to get socalled auspicious facings!

Beware of Date Errors in San Yuan Feng Shui!

SATURN JUPITER CONJUNCTION AS THE SCIENTIFIC BASIS OF THE XUAN KONG 20 YEARS 'YUN'
San Yuan practitioners have been using the 20 years "Yun" without realising it is now two Periods out of date! The 20 Years "Yun" is due to the Saturn Jupiter conjunction which has a cycle of 20 years. It is now no longer Period 8 but Period 1! The Xuan Kong "Yun" is now two cycles out of date and is in a messy state of knowledge! Find out more why.




Beware of Date Errors in Astrology!

PRECESSION OF EQUINOXES CAUSES SHIFT OF ONE ZODIAC SIGN EVERY 2,000 YEARS
Every 2,000 years, the Zodiac signs will shift one sign. The Chinese used to correct for this shift from the Hsia to the Han dynasties. But there have been no corrections since the end of the Han dynasty. What is called Year of the Ox in 2009 is actually Year of the Tiger. All uncorrected Ba Zi calculations are wrong, making both astrology calculations and date selection messy. Find out more why.
