This is the FIRST TIME the secret of TaiJi Tu has been disclosed to the public within the English Speaking community. Never has this secret been revealed! In time to come, if any of the teacher teaching this piece of information and they are not coming from our establishment, you know well that the knowledge that they acquired are secondary and less authentic. Truly, there are too many rubbish floating around in disguise as genuine FengShui courses. Buyers beware!
WHICH IS YOUR TAIJI 太极?
After SanHe now the SanYuan craze is on... but before we dwell into the subject of SanYuan, there are many confused FengShui teachers, self proclaimed grandmasters, con masters of Bolehland, practitioners and so forth do not even know how their YinYang turns. These confused lots do not know which Taiji belongs to the art of FengShui, Daoism or even the most common - YiJing. Most took for granted these two Taiji are the same.
One conversation that we found most interesting, in the FB on the same subject is this, we quote, "Taiji Tu written counter-clockwise has a sinister, or negative, value.... going right means RIGHT, I think. The two dots have to be on vertical line in TaiJi. On and on...looks like you and I are picking mistakes by the dozen... Do you know what JY elder says about presenting TaiJi? I AM MOST INTERESTED in what JY elder says, he is on the masters I mostly appreciate, please do let me know, if you want privately here, what he says... Master JY elder says that orientation of Taiji shows how deep is the master's knowledge about FengShui's principles…"
So, from these conversations, master JY elder preferred the "B" TaiJi Tu and proclaimed the "A" Taiji Tu to be sinister or having a negative value. If such is to be true, we may as well throw all the XKDG methods taught in the west into the rubbish dump... So, some well informed practitioners do say it correctly, only scholars should attempt to answer and not children in kindergarten. Do kindergarten kids teach FengShui in the West, especially North America?
YIJING TAIJI 易經太极
Confucius illustrated such as day night changes while he commented on the ZhouYi. When at dawn, a dim light breaking the darkness, this is Young Yang. When at noon, the sun is at its peak, this is Old Yang. When at dusk, the sun sinks leaving the trace of twilight, this is Young Yin. When at midnight, it is in total darkness with chills, this is Old Yin. This is exactly how it is reflected in the Later Heaven BaGua or the Zhou WenWang Gua and later adopted by other YiJing expert liked Zhou DunYi and JingFang.
REAL YIN REAL YANG 真阴真阳
Pure Qi rises, therefore Yang. Reaching its peak and becomes Old Yang. A young Yin is born within. This is a Yin within Yang. Putrid Qi sinks, therefore Yin. Reaching its peak and becomes Old Yin. A young Yang is born within. This is a Yang within Yin. These young Yin and young Yang are called Real Yin and Real Yang. Detail read HERE. Therefore, the YiJing TaiJi shall look like this as above..
Before we attempt to explain the TaiJi Tu or how the TaiJi turns in the field of SanYuan, one has to understand the working mechanism of LuoShu - The Book of River Luo Numerology.
LUOSHU TAIJI 洛書太极
Different schools had different ways of defining the YinYang boundary into the LoShu and gives polarity and meanings to the numbers. We would like to share with you one way of doing so as the followings.
BOOK OF RIVER LUO 洛書
The LoShu is the ideal SanYuan Qi map. It begins in the centre 5 moves to 6 Northwest. From the 6 it moves to 7 west and completes in 8 Northeast. From 8 it moves to 9 south and 1 north meeting 2 southwest. The last path is to take flight from 3 east and finally returns to 4 southeast. 6 is where Qi begins and 4 is where Qi ends.
1234 and 6789 are but a special Qi connection known as pearl string. In DaGua these are known as the Upper Period of 1234 and the Lower Period of 6789.
YINYANG BOUNDARY 阴阳界
As we knew YuanKong starts from the 5 and take flight as 6,7,8,9 and go back to 1,2,3,4 before returning to 5. This sequence revealed that 6,7,8,9 are completion numbers with the 5 and 1,2,3,4 are origin numbers without containing the 5. Between 9 and 1 is the boundary of YinYang. Therefore all the origin numbers are Yin and all the completion numbers are Yang in accordance to the record of LianShan Yi, when the Chaos of HunDun has been split open to establish Heaven and Earth fixed position, Pure Qi rises, therefore Yang. Putrid Qi sinks, therefore Yin. This is how the TaiJi Tu turns.
Mapping against the LuoShu, some fascinating truth revealed. One will find that 8 and 2 are at a "misplaced" YinYang. 8 being the completion number is within the Origin sector while 2 the origin number is within the Completion sector. These 2 and 8 are the YinYang within the YinYang. Some would term them as the Young Yin and Young Yang. This has a special application in FengShui and forecasting.
In the following article we shall explain as to why SanYuan fundamentals are rooted on Early Heaven Bagua matching LoShu instead of the Later Heaven BaGua matching LuoShu as largely misinterpreted by the XuanKong school especially ShenShi XuanKong school of Flying Star... to be continue.
REGISTRATION OF INTEREST
All SanYuan methods must conform to this arrangement. It is how SanYuan measures the Heaven. If one is not able to discern its core configurations, any application of SanYuan method will be futile and one is not able to merge SanYuan to SanHe. In fact, SanHe is so predominantly fundamental that only SanYuan is able to achieve miracles. There is wisdom in saying first class master looks for the stars, second class master look for the water mouth and third class master run around the mountains seeing nothing. It shows to say the fundamental of water mouth SanHe FengShui is still very valid before one able to discern the stars and the constellations. Sadly, such has been omitted in most modern schools of Chinese Metaphysics.
