SANHE AND ITS COUSIN SANYUAN
Any different between SanYuan DaGua 三元大卦 and XuanKong DaGua 玄空大卦? It is the same question pertaining to the different between YangGong Fa 杨公法 with SanHe Fa 三合法? They may look the same but in techniques they are far apart.
CASE STUDY - SETIAWALK AND WATER WATER EVERYWHERE
Drop by at Setiawalk recently for a FengShui audit. I cannot keep my eye away from the lush landscape with extensive use of water elements. Indeed coincident to the very notion of water-water everywhere. There are more to meet the eye but I would just disclose a little.
The center boulevard is high with F&B and very happening especially during the evening where pubs come alive and the opposite is observed for the shops facing outward, almost starving. The vibrant side is located along the Yin side of the man-made river and the Yang side takes a longer to peak.
Indeed the design of the river has YinYang almost unseen for an untrained eye. Some of the practitioners I brought along were surprised as all they see was water features and lush landscapes. They had missed the real ingredients besides saying, “Ah… the river is meandering, so it is sentimental water”. Those fans of HHC should use this life example for their trainings based on his book on SanHe water formula. I must admit it is purely land form befitting into the context of both SanHe and SanYuan methodology. Wonder if it is the work of “JayWhy”?
While you don’t have to do much on each of the F&B outlets but to decide on the location of the main door, the office lots were a little disappointing with many vacant lots desperately to be filled up. Upon visiting, the answer is obvious. The design has not taken FengShui into consideration. Maybe the master’s work does not include such.
POSTSCRIPT - CONTRADICTING YANGGONG METHOD
I had a brief discussion with some YangGong practitioner on this case. He pointed out that the greater formation is wood but the internal formation is metal. Water exiting in Shen being the prosperity palace of metal frame. True enough, the vibrancy of the area could not last.
This shows that both SanHe and SanYuan methods have to conform to YangGong method although someone else may think otherwise.
Pure Yin, pure Yang 纯阴纯阳 is the polarity of Qi – for example, Yang incoming dragon matching Yang structure, facing Yang direction. A continuously uninterrupted flow of Qi of the same polarity - It tells the mechanism of Qi transfer. It has nothing to do with the same polarity cannot give birth to ShengQi 生气. YinYang intercourse is called CiXiong 雌雄 and it is addressed in another concept called real Yin, real Yang 真阴真阳.
Real Yin, real Yang 真阴真阳 is the interval when Yang produces Yin and vice versa. What it really means is when the old Yang die, the new Yin is born, the real Yin and real Yang principle 真阴真阳 and it also reflects how Qi transformed from one body to another. In SanHe this principle was embedded within the structure of birth, prosperous and death formation to receive ShengQi 生气. Another name is 12 ChangShen 十二长生 or LiuQi 六氣.
ZhangShu states: -
In Bury is to Store; is to ride on ShengQi.
YinYang Qi is wind, rises as clouds, descends as rain, and moves underground as ShengQi. ShengQi in underground, grows and gives life to the all things. Man, received their form from their parents, his bones receive Qi, when the remains of the parents are endowed. Life is an accumulation of Qi. Qi forms bones and in death only the bones remained. Therefore to bury is to acquire Qi into the bones and it is the path to benefit the living. The classic says: Qi prosperous and responds. Ancestral fortune benefits man.” It is like when the Copper Mountain collapsed in the West, The bronze bell spiritually responded in the East. Wood prospers in the season of spring, Millet sprouts in the room, Qi moves underground. Its movements is the terrain of the ground. Its accumulation is the cessation of terrain. The ancients regarded this as accumulation without dispersion, Qi movement that has halt is FengShui.
The first tenet prescribed receiving ShengQi is to bury. Second tenet, ShengQi originates from heaven and sips underground liked water. ShengQi moves underground. Chinese believe that the corpus of Jing Qi Shen 精神气. Jing 精 being the corpus is the result of intercourse between male and female – birth of a child. After death, the carcass is buried underground to receive ShengQi. Energy Qi 气 is preserved as ShengQi benefiting its descendant 神. It is such as the collapse of the Bronze Mountain in the West, toll is the Bronze Bell in the East. This imply that the Qi is transform in a continuous flux.
The Primary and the Secondary of Wind
Riding Wind Will Disperse, Entering the Boundary of Water It Stops”, these are the definition of FengShui, the genesis of the term wind and water from the burial classic. One important keyword is to ride wind and the question is how?
Perhaps reading the same notion as when wind moves, Qi moves, when Qi stops, water coagulates may bring about entirely different meaning…
First, to receive water, second, is to store wind. These are the two most important aspects of FengShui. Coincidentally this is also the two slices of the same TaiQi. To ride wind, is to first ride Qi. Similar to ride a horse, one has to sit on the horse. The notion of riding could not be possibly be opening the legs and allowing the horse to pass through. By the same token to ride on Qi, the property or grave has to sit on the source of Qi itself. Opening of the door to received Qi is not riding Qi, but of storing Qi. This is one great misconception that had plagued many…
Receiving Qi is secondary. To receive and to store Qi, the formation must be in placed such as the embraces, Parent Mountain, Table Mountain and bright hall are all coming together. The Chinese term this formation, as the four guardian paying attention. However, this is not necessary or warranted for riding Qi. Imagine, how many places have the four guardian paying attention? Not many indeed and yet within such common places there are still good Qi.
It is true that many well to do personalities do not originate from the so called, premium FengShui vicinity where the guardians are present. Many come from a humble beginning, yet most FengShui theory disseminated to date state otherwise that good FengShui vicinity must only be premium locations where the formations must be present to support the coagulation of Qi. Such is again, another great misconception and should this be the much prized FengShui techniques, the battle would have been half lost.
To store wind is secondary, to ride wind is primary. Yet many modern day advocates propagate the manner of storing wind as primary. The much heard notion of tapping Qi is in fact, storing Qi. To tap Qi, the formation must be present of which the table mountain must be at the correct height, which enable the practitioner to tap his hand against the tip apex of the Table Mountain, in the horizon. This process to tapping is known as to tap Qi. The entire phenomenon of measuring the environment or precisely measuring the embrace and table mountain by means of the human anatomy is to establish the quality of the bright hall. Failure to determine the two slices of the bright hall, any attempt to establish facing to tap Qi will be greatly compromised.
To ride wind, is to ride internal Qi, to store wind is to receive external Qi. Any property that is build must have a sitting and a facing. The definition of sitting and facing is varied, yet its crust meanings of sitting and facing stem from two more important notions of location and direction. Every entity that is placed on ground has a location as a reference point, datum or in the FengShui term, is a TaiQi spot. This TaiQi spot is independent on its own accord and yet dependent with the rest of the TaiQi spots, to form its centre of the greater TaiQi. In this dependency, the direction comes into play.
Qi is everywhere and every direction has Qi, similarly every direction has the 5 elements. These 5 elements are not static element. To say East has only wood element is grossly erred. To be précised, East direction refers to the eastern arm of the HeTu has the property of wood and this notion is entirely different from the actual direction of the East which has all the properties of the 5 elements in transition and motion…
To ride wind is to locate a spot that will receive internal Qi. Such is called establishing the sitting. The term to sit is corresponding to a seat. A seat is a location on the ground extracting the internal Qi and is called a Xue. Because there are 5 elemental internal Qi, there are only 5 types of Xue of wood, water, earth, fire and metal. Riding Qi is to establish these 5 types of Xue. This is primary.
To store wind is to face towards the external environment to receive external Qi. Such is called the establishing of the facing. The term to face is corresponding to a view. A view is a vector derived from the rebounding Qi of the environment inwards. The key of receiving such external Qi greatly depends on the quality of the bright hall. The interstices of the two slices will marry in the bright hall.
There is a saying that bright hall eliminates killing Qi. This may not be true if the quality of the bright hall is bad, as one may be swallowed by the bright hall. Such constituency of bright hall and the environment is called external structure. Because there are only 4 structures of external rebounding Qi, there are only four structures of wood, water, fire and metal. Storing Qi is to establish the correct facing in corresponding to the spot. This is secondary.
Because the nature of external Qi is rebounding, it takes time to tap into rebounding Qi and could be greatly weakened. Therefore, it becomes secondary. Otherwise it will be wiser to tap directly into the internal Qi. This is primary. So, next time when one decide to move along SanHe or XuanKong, asked oneself which has the primary and which has not.
This is FengShui…
In SanHe, to accumulate ShengQi without dispersion is to conform to pure Yin, pure Yang 纯阴纯阳 and to ride ShengQi is to bury in where real Yin, real Yang 真阴真阳 is formed in CiXiong 雌雄.
Points in mind – SanHe School Modern Fallacy
Five years ago, there was a query stating that since 4 major water mouth and assistant star water method are both SanHe, what happened if they contradicted each other? Which take precedent?
Reviewing back my writing then, I put the blames on different schools, different interpretations. In fact, it is actually different part of the same “elephant” as viewed by the “blind men”, in accordance to YangGong true method. It may also be the problem of categorization. First, one has to discern that not everything to do with YangGong method is SanHe.
SanHe, loosely translated as 3 combinations have many interpretations from the obvious Dragon, Embrace and Facing to the Three Stooges, you watch in TV. What this school strength is that the believed of having the 3 positions fortified, any collapse of one portion, 2 of the others will able to hold the fort. In order to seamlessly combine the three, a Yang incoming dragon must match Yang water establishing a Yang Facing. This is believed to be what is known as Pure Yin Pure Yang.
This so called Pure Yin Pure Yang forms the basis of assistant star water method or FuXing ShuiFa, originated from Entering Earth Eye, Ru DiYan (入地眼) by GuTuo (辜托). Therefore, it is assumed to have been a very old method of SanHe since it is believed that GuTuo is a monk lived in the Zhou Dynasty. At that time, the Heaven’s Plate of the SanHe LuoPan is unheard of. On such account and unlike modern application, FuXing ShuiFa is never measured using the Heaven’s Plate.
Qing Dynasty witnessed the following methods: -
1. 4 Major Water Mouths
2. Later Heaven Method
3. Earthly Principle 5 Verses
4. QianKun National Treasure
These methods were categorized under SanHe and were claimed to have been YangGong’s method, employing the Heaven’s Plate. Heaven Plate is a 24 mountains ring correcting the “original” Earth Plate to mark the True North based on the Sun path for measuring of Water.
Even within these methods, there are sheer inconsistencies, often mocked around by pure YangGong practitioners such as LiDingXin. YangGong is believed to have been the forefather of FengShui lived in the Tang Dynasty.
Strangely, the copy of Ru DiYan (入地眼) by GuTuo (辜托) as it is available today contain text which mock the usage of the Heaven’s Plate while the 3 YangGong classics of Green Satchel Profound Saying, Heavenly Jade Classic and Jade Ruler Classic, clearly dispel the inconsistency of flipping Gua method or FanGua as sheer divination without valid compliance to GuoPu’s Burial Classic therefore, not genuine FengShui.
Furthermore with the last chapter of Ru DiYan (入地眼) dedicated to 8 Mansions, it is even glaring that this very classic has been adulterated beyond recognition, most likely during the Qing Dynasty. GuTuo (辜托) may even have been a monk living in the Sung or Ming Dynasty instead. Even one chapter dedicated to evaluation of the embrace dedicated to Lai BuYi's urging officer scroll.This is one classic example of the "Death becomes Alive" and the "Living becomes Deceased".
Subsequent works revealed that assistant star water method or FuXing ShuiFa is further adulterated to include piecemeal methods such as Five Ghost Carry Treasure, 8 Mansion Five Ghost methods, FlyingStar, Water Dragon Classics and so forth with some part of it blended into SanYuan and XuanKong as well. Not surprising if you can find special RuDiYan LuoPan these days.
A genuine YangGong method discerns all these and therefore cannot be classified as a pure SanHe school -
Note this FACT!
Eight Killing 八煞 as the name suggests is a standard textbook entry level for FengShui practitioners. Derived from SanHe School, it is a watered down version of YangGong method. It comes in many forms such as: -
Sitting Mountain 8 Killing - 坐山八煞
8 Killing Yellow Stream - 八煞黄泉
However, one SanYuan School - QianKun GuoBao/LongMen BaDaJu 龍門八大局 / 乾坤國寶 also incorporated the same into their techniques. It is extremely strange that as a SanYuan version require to use a SanHe method unless within SanYuan there is SanHe and such secret has been interwoven so deeply that it requires a genuine master to enlighten?
Saying so, there is also a SanYuan version of 8 Killing forces called: -
Sitting Mountain Robbery Killing - 坐山劫煞
Sitting Mountain 8 Killing - 坐山八煞
Kan Dragon Kun Rabbit Zhen Mountain Monkey. Xun Chicken Qian Horse Dui Snake Head. Gen Tiger Li Pig are 8 Killer. House Grave together perish.
The keyword is sitting mountain, meaning how your building sits. Genuine YangGong people will measure the Seat instead of the Sit.
The original method is to first determine the incoming Qi based on the BaGua 8 directions and the sitting of the house or grave must not be located at the specific animal sign according to the 24 mountains, as in accordance to the above poem. Failing so bloodshed will manifest.
By the same token, if you are born in a specific year according to the animal sign as specify as above, your personalized Killing Force is the direction as mentioned. For example, a person born in Pig year will have his Killing Force in the Xun location. In 8 Mansion method, this Pig year born person must not live in a Gua 4 house. Gua 4 is Xun sitting house.
The alternative method as procured in QianKun GuoBao/LongMen BaDaJu 龍門八大局 / 乾坤國寶, is to use the sitting Gua of the house must not face Sha or Killing structure at the specific animal sign according to the 24 mountains, as in accordance to the above poem. Failing so bloodshed will manifest. This is known as the direct killing forces.
Whereas the indirect killing forces depend on the early and later heaven configuration of the sitting Gua of the house to determine the specific results of bloodshed or otherwise material lost.
Example, Kan house must not see ShaQi in the location of Dragon (Chen) and Dog (Xu). Early Heaven of Kan is Dui. Dui killing forces is Snake (Si). So if there is ShaQi at Si location - there will be bloodshed. Later Heaven of Kan is in Kun. Kun killing forces is Rabbit (Mao). So if there is ShaQi at Mao - there will be robbery and material lost.
Also note that there is a hidden Dog marked in red. Olden day master purposefully drop one or two of their techniques so that they will remain relevant and always better then their disciples.
8 Killing Yellow Stream - 八煞黄泉
Geng ding Kun up is Yellow Stream, Kun face Geng Ding cannot be said; Xun face avoid moving Yi Bing up. Yi Bing must protect Xun water first; Jia Gui face up see Gen, Gen face prelude Jia Gui suspiciously; Qian face Xin Ren move not get, Xin Ren water flow afriad meeting Qian.
Sitting mountain deals with branch while Yellow Stream deals with Stem and Gua location. The caveat is there must be "Pulling Nose" Sha drawing Qi away from the Main Door. So the reference point is the House Facing or Door Facing.
Example, Kun facing must not have road or water flowing out at Geng or Ding mountains. Similarly, Geng/Ding facing must not have Kun water flowing outward.
Here, another contentious issue with diverting opinion is: -
Strangely, RuDiYan 入地眼 has never advocated the use of Heaven Plate and it is believed that this classic predates YangGong and having roots in Huang ShiGong 黃石公.
For a genuine YangGong practitioner, they are less bother with this method.
Sitting Mountain Robbery Killing - 坐山劫煞
Xun Wei Shen Mountain Gui robbery conceal; Xin Xu reside Chou Geng horse native. Zhen Gen meet Ding jia see Bing; Ren monkey Qian rabbit Bing Xin direction. Kan Gui stich snake Si Wu chicken; Ding You meet Yin Kun Hai Yi. Dragon Tiger meet goat Yi monkey robbery; one ox dragon position cannot place.
This is a SanYuan version of 8 Killing Forces using the sitting as the reference point. Example property sits Gui cannot see broken structure at Shen, Wei and Xun mountain. Its origin remains illusive and some account to it having taken from the asterism.
Illustrated here are just some of the mainstream 8 Killing theories. There are countless other sub variants liked XuanKong DaGua Killing Forces and so forth. For the genuine practitioner, these are just end-users' techniques. All complete sets of SanHe or SanYuan methods had such being incorporated into their applications notably from the text Heaven Jade Classics - 天玉经.
First observe Golden Dragon stirring not stirring, next examine blood vein identify incoming dragon.
The XuanKong Flying Star 玄空飛星, will interpret these 2 liners as the way Flying Star 飛星, supposed to fly. Note that the meaning of Golden Dragon represents Qian sector. In the Later Heaven BaGua, Qian is assigned to the northwest and receive the element of Metal and in Chinese means 金. Qian is also related to Dragon 龙 based on the notion of Yao change. Together one must observe if the Golden Dragon 金 龙 moves or not. If the star take flight it must start from the Qian palace. In the event of a missing sector in Qian, the entire Flying Star 飛星 chart cannot work! It also means if there is a vertical missing sector in Qian, Flying Star 飛星 chart also cannot work. The reason being the LoShu 洛书 flight takes 3 dimensional along the 3 dimensional of the Later Heaven BaGua.
HeTu in 3D: -
The early Chinese does not concern so much as to the sitting and facing of their homes. Their main concerns are the community. So, the EH is use to assist them in locating prosperous spots. It is all location, location and location.
EH BaGua is imagery, Xiang of the cosmos. To understand its attributes, EH Numerology is invented. This is another component called Li (method). So HeTu is derived to interpret the EH BaGua. HeTu is derived from the understanding of Qi, the 5 elements. As the saying goes, Heaven bestow, Earth receives, Qi originates from Heaven and settle underground as in the forms of mountain (Gen) and rivers (Dui). Such manifestation is called as above, so below. As above there are asterisms. As below there are mountains and rivers which we called Dragons. So, it is believed that the working mechanism of Qi must follow an order. This order is HeTu. So, Li, Qi and Xiang 里气象 are complete.
However, have we ever thought that HeTu is also in 3D?
ZHANGSU 葬书 - THE FOUR GUARDIANS
ZangShu 葬书 is believed to have been written by GuoPu 东晋郭璞原著, although there is no record that he has done so. Again as at to date there are various version of ZhangShu and 2 versions stood out to be one an account for SanHe school, duly rectified and edited by the YangGong old school patriarch, the late Li DingXin, while the other for the rest, notably SanYuan school.
On this chapter we are investigating the notion of the 4 Guardians land form as best contradicted the very land form of China being the birth place of FengShui.
ZangShu (Editted by Li DingXin)
Land has 4 forms, Qi originates from 8 locations,
Thus, land form on the left is Green Dragon and right is White Tiger,
In-front is Red Phoenix, back is Black Tortoise.
Black Tortoise lay with sunken head,
Red Phoenix rising,
Green Dragon hovering,
White Tiger coaching.
If forms and contours are reversed, burial will result in devastation.
Therefore Tiger on guard is like holding the corpse in its mouth;
Dragon on guard is like an envious master;
Black Tortoise that stood up rejects the corpse;
If Red Phoenix that does not dance will fly away.”
In geography, there are 3 dragons coming into China from west to the east, before branching into 5 branches namely Qian, Kun, Kan, Li and Dui. Thus the western side of China is always higher than the eastern side. If South is taken as the facing, we would end up having the white tiger higher than the green dragon. This is a geographical fact. It is also said that all veins has its origin from the KunLun Mountain.
KunLun range is at about 13,000 ft. or higher at the region of the Tibetan Plateau, running along sides the Himalayas, branching out to Karin Basin, Gobi and Greater Khingan Range back dropping the Manchurian Plains, whereas the others bordering the great Yangze, Yellow and Xi Rivers. Apparently this is the source of all major rivers from Brahmaputra and the Chinese Great Rivers. Apparently only Yangze, Yellow and Xi Rivers flow down the fertilized Sichuan Plains before exiting to the North China Sea and Yellow Sea at the Eastern region of China and Brahmaputra turns into the region of Bhutan and Bangladesh.
At this juncture, it does not fit well into the prescription of good land form in accordance to ZhangShu? The issue is with our understanding of ZhangShu as it never say that the green dragon has to be higher than the white tiger. It merely states the nature of these guardian land form should be in terms of spatial vastness.
One other point, green dragon is associated with male therefore Yang and white tiger is female therefore Yin. If the dragon side is higher than the tiger side, water will flow from the dragon side to the tiger side ultimately enriching the female rather than the male and such is a big taboo in traditional Chinese family. Similarly if the tortoise side is higher than the phoenix side, the presumed good FengShui formation will be sitting Yang facing Yin yet we call the bright hall as facing Yang?
Such cannot be true!
YangGong old age observes male female, all under heaven various book say differently.
First observe Golden Dragon stirring not stirring, next examine blood vein identify incoming dragon.
Commentary based on SanHe perspective: -
ZhenGong implied that YangGong method of his time is already so corrupted especially in the fundamental understanding of CiXiong (雌雄).The first thing to do in FengShui is the ability to discern YinYang but yet many schools may take such differently. Such follow by the 2 important tenets: -
More importantly, this text qualify that a real water dragon has to be accompanied by the incoming dragon, without such it will not form a meridian. Yet, upon close scrutiny it set the following method: -
On the same account of Golden Dragon, do you know that the FengShui of the Forbidden City, after being designed by top notch SanHe masters are the worst FengShui monument in China?
If you are going to understand FengShui, one must not lose sight of the Forbidden City. Some believes that Forbidden City has the best of the best FengShui such as “…been constructed to the best level of FengShui with the application of the theory of YiJing, YinYang and BaGua…”, is going to be cursed as the unfolding events related to Forbidden City is otherwise related by lightning strike, bloodshed, tyranny and all that can be accounted for - the worse FengShui in town. Yet, we still believed in the soothsaying new age masters.
Forbidden City is “designed” to be total FengShui failure, when the time comes. It is not the dragon and the phoenix (4 heraldic beasts) that is going to save Forbidden City’s FengShui; it is the conscious attempt of the then, FengShui masters to include an operative obsolescence devise that will purge the entire Imperial family into the gutter. The so called, mysterious glitch at the Northwest sector (Qian), where the incoming water dragon is engineered to be carrying the so-called JadeBelt formation with the Golden River is but an “automated switch” of obsolesces. The Qian as imagery of the leader is again, imagery only. The real Qi is still the depressed conduits, in this case, manmade streams or Gutter, incoming from the Officer palace. Ancient master do know how to rectify a missing corner when they have the tendency to even move mountains.
The “barbaric” Yuan Dynasty moved the capital of China to Beijing. The Ming Emperor discarded it for Nanjing and they have a solid reason to do so, not until the megalomaniac Emperor returned to expand it, perhaps based on the “misinformation” of FengShui knowledge his forefathers help to screwed up for the use of the then perceived “barbaric” neighboring countries like Korea and Japan, later suffocating defeats from the then Qing Invader and partly due to the ripening of their own bad Karmas. Even Qing Emperor KangXi and QianLong, Empress Dowager Ci Xi opted to live somewhere else. The post-revolutionary Chairman Mao too, has decided not to make such as “wonderful” FengShui Forbidden City into his living abode. Yet, we were again being told that Forbidden City has a very good FengShui!
On a separate note: -
Perhaps there are truth that the Imperial master of that time were not taught the genuine art of KanYu, we knew Emperor QianLong has had a hard time convincing the masses to contribute books for the compilation of Siku Quanshu. We also know that he hired guns from the Jesuit Priests to "correct" the Chinese measurements of space and time. Would he able to convince the Han to easily dispose of their knowledge in KanYu for the benefits of the Qing? The most inner rings of any SanHe LuoPan called the BaSha HuangGuan and the BaLu HuangGuan is the testimonies of such a watered down method handed over to the Qing for posterity. We salvage these rotting ideas again from the later generations of Ming or Qing imperial master lineages without question! So, beware if someone were to tell you if he or she is from the imperial lineages. You do not know what they are going to offer and better don't trust them to the fullest as you may not know what sort of obsolescence devise they may installed for you...
FACIAL LANDFORM - RENZHONG XUE 人中
The human face is the reflection of land form as in the study of FengShui or DiLi 地理. In the event there are darken Qi surfacing in any part of the face it is usually associated with Killing Forces incurred at that very location of the living abode or ancestral grave.
The forehead is where the Qi source originates diverting from the point on top of the head in the BaiHui Xue flowing down the nose bridge. The sunken part of the nose bridge in between the eye brows is the crossing of the gap or probably known as Angle's Bridge. Qi rises again in point 44 as officer/ghost mountain before apex on the nose tip as the parent mountain, drops vein onto the meridian spot also called RenZhong Xue 人中 among one of the most important acupuncture point in a human body that resuscitate life. Embraced by the cheek and fronting the chin as the table mountain, the mouth represents the Bright Hall or MingTang. The quality of your health depends on what you consume into your mouth just liked the quality of the water in front of your bright hall. Coupled with the QiMen or BaZi chart, one's reading will be absolutely accurate.
One event using RenZhong Xue 人中 as one of the most important acupuncture point in a human body that resuscitate life - While discussing some urgent matter with a friend over dinner in a restaurant, an old man suddenly dropped off his chair and in a stiff fit lying motionless with everyone panicking and in a loud thud like a heavy sack of potatoes thrown to the floor. Some try to hold him but none dare to move towards him. Being an architect, not a doctor but strangely the lady boss was yelling for a helping hand as though architect is a miracle worker or some sort of shaman healer, pressing the acupuncture point of Ren zhong xue does help. With a solemn prayer, he is back from being unconscious to conscious. He was breathing and there is no sign of death on his face after he collapsed so it is a good indication that he will regain consciousness. Apparently his daughter shower her thankfulness for the wholesome deed. It is a wonderful experience that I wish to share. Some basic knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine could save life in an unexpected way. For sure there is also some Devine intervention on such account.
Here is more to be said about RenZhong Xue http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.med-vetacupuncture.org%2Fenglish%2Farticles%2Fgv26.htm&h=eAQFG4Tey, according to medical terms. The highest level of Face Reading or MianXiang 面相 is by reading the Qi surfacing on your face and not just some moles surfacing here and there. May the merits be shared among all beings, seen or unseen and may all be well and happy.
QingNanAoYou 青囊奥语, is another text book of FengShui believed to have been written by YangGong and yet 2 apparent versions from 2 different schools of thought.
In summary, classical texts are often distorted beyond recognition. YangGong did not write any of these classics. It was written by his students. Jiang DaHung commentaries on this classic is a sheer attempt to distort it further to his inclination and understanding. Often than not, he is labeled as a con-artiste instead. Yet, contemporary observation of masters from both schools showed tremendous results. What is your say?
