Qian Long tomb.
Critical Aspect of Feng Shui of Yin Premises
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.]
There was no doubt that in those ancient Zhou period, when there were no yet permanent tombs, there was already ancestor worship, which was regarded as top priority, even by Confucius, as quoted above. The ancestral temple was more important than the Yang residence. Any event no matter how great must stop when there was a solar eclipse or when there was a fire at the ancestor temple.
In agreement with the perspective coming down from Confucius' time, the Ming dynasty Feng Shui master Jiang Da Hong also emphasised the top priority of ancestor worship:
- 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
It is this Feng Shui of the Yin premise of the ancestor temple which is most critical and still much valid today. It is the ancestor temple not the tomb around which Feng Shui of Yin premises is built.
- An Indian astrologer came to learn in our Feng Shui courses. He said the Hindus would just cremate the corpse and throw the ashes into the Ganges. There were no tombs but the Hindus have their own version of ancestor worship. Likewise, there are ancient cultures which even let the corpses be eaten by birds but they had ancestor worship rituals. The corpse is not important. What is important is the ancestor worship.
There is no true Feng Shui of Yin premises on tombs. The current Feng Shui of tombs, which has no support at all from the ancient texts of the Sung dynasty and before, is just a myth. Those who advocate tomb Feng Shui are just bluffing themselves and others, who are misled to spend a lot of money on false Feng Shui of so-called tombs Feng Shui
Return to the real Feng Shui of Yin premises which is always centered on ancestor worship. Stick with us to learn and find out what is the true original Feng Shui of Yin premises once used by the Chinese emperors.
