盘法 - THE ART OF USING THE LUOPAN
In the entry level of many legitimate FengShui school, the art of using the LuoPan will be among the subject taught besides determining location versus direction. Among the many various way of taking a reading, two methods stood out foremost, that is to say Establish the LuoPan – LiPan 立盘 versus Gauging the LuoPan – GePan 格盘. After these 2 fundamental techniques, one will exposed to which location to LiPan and GePan.
ESTABLISHING THE LUOPAN 立盘
Foremost, is the question of where do you hold the LuoPan, above the navel or below the navel? The navel comprises of a meridian spot known as DanTian 丹田 or elixir field. SanHe and SanYuan methodologies differed in the way a LuoPan is held above DanTian or below DanTian. The obvious question is why such measurement must be taken above DanTian or below DanTian?
Establishing the LuoPan is taking a reference point or datum. It is a single point in space. The question is again, which point of reference? SanYuan and SanHe had different point of reference. One measure the solid, the other the void. One measure the void within the solid, while the other measure the solid within the void. One measure the highest within the lowest, while the other measure the lowest within the highest. One, very little known method, is to measure between the thresholds of YinYang… What do you know about the threshold of YinYang?
When the datum is established, it is always the relation between the locations versus the direction. A guiding string will be established radiating from the centre of the LuoPan to the fix a water feature, the door location and so on so forth… This string is also called “Heaven string” while aligning against the LuoPan string is called the “Earth string”. Ancient people liked to name things sophisticatedly. When the Heaven string matched the Earth string, it is called Heaven and Earth comes together.
When a second reference datum is required, LiPan may be required. Here a LuoPan is placed on a stool, a bucket full of uncooked rice or simply a stacked of joss paper. Older generation master has great regard with their tool – the LuoPan. When it is consecrated, meaning a guardian spirit is residing within the LuoPan, it must not have in contact with the soil. So you will never see the LuoPan placed on the floor, be it tiled or otherwise. This is a taboo observed by older generation master. Placing the LuoPan on a bucket filled with uncooked rice is very practical reason as it enable the alignment of the LuoPan to be balanced on the four corners.
BOLEHLAND CONMASTER WAY OF ESTABLISHING THE LUOPAN
We were told that the Bolehland Conmaster has been teaching student to first place the LuoPan on the ground to stabilize earth Qi and to take the Xue reading of a particular place. By placing the LuoPan on the surface of the floor and if there is a tile pointing or groove line, it shall be aligned to the grove line, the 72D earth Qi can be measured and be read in line with the 60D according to the Fake YuHan Jing methodology. For God’s sake, this is the most obscene way to establish a LuoPan and how on earth would the great YangGong taught such a method to his disciples??? This picture taken of placing the LuoPan on the floor, master teaching his student, is the most pathetic, ignoble and undignified ways of YangGong method of the Century… SHAME ON YOU, BOLEHLAND CONMASTER!
GAUGING THE LUOPAN 格盘
To gauge with the LuoPan is to butt one side of the edge of the LuoPan’s square surface to any other surface to measure the Qi intensity emitted from the object of measurement. This process is known as GePan. Gauging the LuoPan is to establish a sitting and facing of a tombstone, coffin, door and others. There is also a reason why the string must be in RED, when you gauge with the LuoPan especially in Yin FengShui… The real “KungFu” of a master vested in his manner of gauging with the LuoPan. Both SanHe and SanYuan schools have their own method to GePan. One measures the Heaven Xue, while the other measures the Earth Xue.
Westerners and even some Vietnamese students are very easily to fall prey to Bolehland Conmaster. As people say, talk is cheap… the over glorifications of the birth place of YangGong, GanZhou and doubtful lineage of the Fake YuHan Jing, fake royal decorum, unverified PhDs, unverified research papers that have no academic bearings be it on matter related to the 13 Ming Tombs, FengShui, Genting Highland, the collapsed of MAS, all the way to my grandma’s backyard FengShui research are all rubbish befitting only as a dossier for more con jobs to come, now targeting Russia, as I was told… This is not only the graduating moment from Bolehland Conmaster to World Wide Famous Conmaster in the making… somehow, no matter how it is done, this conmaster will NEVER beat Bolehland’s Greatest Con-Grandmaster of all Time – Mr. JOLOR who collects fees in the BILLIONS from the King of Bolehland… Maybe, because his ShengJi is not really working… For goodness sake, those who wish to learn FengShui please enrol to the school of Wan-MDeeBee.
Saying thus… the MOST CLASSIC of all shall be this very PICTURE of the Bolehland Conmaster and his Protégé taking measurement with the LuoPan place on the floor… As people say, picture paints a thousand words… This is Classics! I am Speechless…

For some reason - I can’t be sure -, and for the last 6 or 7 years it would seem, suddenly students have come into class, while they report to have learned to take a Luopan reading against a wall.

That is because if you cannot differentiate between measuring earth Qi versus heaven Qi, you will never understand when to LiPan and when to GePan. By the same token, you will never understand what to measure as sitting 坐 versus seating 座. That is when the entire application of SanHe and SanYuan goes topsy turvey as suggested through your observation. The secrets of FengShui is not within its formula but the way measurements are taken. To date 90% of the XKDG measurements are unfortunately inaccurate. Well that is the sad nature of the industry....
