The Taiwan Presidential election is drawing near. As the heat is on we are contemplating of writing a piece of Taiwanese FengShui and this coincide well with the recent publications of walking the Taiwanese Dragons and Dotting the Formosa Meridians, a FengShui tour that cost a bomb without seeing the real stuff, yet. This write up will be good as a guiding principle of the FengShui structure of Taiwan and the real masters that make its pulse jotting.
The shape of the Island of Taiwan is liked a small fish with a spine aligned from the north to the south. This spine is the range of mountain built up from the rim of the ring of fire linking Japan to the North and the Philippines to Sumatra and Indonesia to the South.
Therefore, Taiwan can be clustered into northern region, central region and southern region. All these regions are said to be peppered with meridian spots and interesting tales of FengShui attributed to the patriarchs of FengShui are as plenty and interesting far more superior compared to the saga of the Bolehland Conmaster that these had been made into their national epic drama and soup opera. These patriarchs are Lin PanXian of the northern region, He YeYun of the central region and Lin LangXian of the southern region. They were all hailed from the cradle of FengShui namely, GuangXi GanZhou. More stories of these patriarch are forthcoming....
THE SELECTION OF TAIPEI
Of the three regions, why Taipei was selected as the capital of Taiwan? This has to do with landform. The dragon backbone is said to have been originated from KunLun with one splintered off to DaTun mountain then to the Seven Dipper mount before dropping it veins onto Taipei a sunken location like a dish surrounded by mountains.
Is it a coincidence that most of the capital cities are in fact spiral cities? The great town planners of Taiwan of the old cities are Qing officers with some of them, qualified from GuangXi school of FengShui. Through its entire history, from a fishing village to a Japanese administrative center and finally a world metropolitans of plastics and microchip components, Taipei remained a close guarded city failed to be exploited by the communist China. Why? Has it got to do with its FengShui?
The selection of Taipei the northern region is to tap Qi from where it begins - DaTun mountain. A walled city was constructed with only 5 city gates instead of 6. Why? The absent gate is supposed to be at Gen sector, NE. This is truly aligned to the astrological ShiPan, the direction of the Devils' Gate - HuangKuan Yellow Stream of Hell. The major buildings, now national monuments are all aligned off 3 degrees to tap into the vein of the Seven Dipper Mount.
The outgoing water is at Xu - Qian, locked by the north guardian mountain, KuanYin mountain. Most of the monuments sit with the rear facing the water mouth and face the incoming dragon instead. Who says Yang FengShui must be liked Yin FengShui having the back higher and facing the sea? Who say bright hall must be big and bright?
Therefore, this spiral city of Taipei is destined to prosper!
SANYUAN LANDFORM ANALYSIS, GET REAL!
There was a write up of SanYuan analysis of Kuching, the capital of Sarawak in the net. To our amusement after reading it, it says nothing about SanYuan. Really, what is so SanYuan about telling where the water flows? Where the dragon comes? Even if it is XuanKong, how are the stars going to fly without the constrains of the enclosure? Truly, these are all bullshits SanYuan analysis.
It is really not about the timeliness of the stars. It is all about incoming and out going of Qi. The model so provided by QianKun GuoBao is the best model to describe the landform of SanYuan. For the benefits of the doubt both SanHe and SanYuan landform are the same, only emphasis is different...
HE YEYUN 蝨母仙
Also known as the Deity of Mother Lice. A contemporary to Liu BoWen, after the war ending the rule of the Yuan Dynasty, as a broken soldier, he traveled south. Poor as he may, he was portrayed to be draped with a robe, unkept hair and beard adorning a rosary of beads, the only inheritance he had, he traveled south of China, benefitting the poor along his journey passed through Taiwan and some claimed that he did ended up in Thailand. He is known as a FengShui grandmaster in the form of a beggar. He practised austerity to a degree that it was said he attained to be a deity being anointed by the Mysterious Lady of Nine Heaven. He was granted these 'magical' Fleas, where his title originated.
In Taiwan he has dotted many graves and one being the strangest called the fighting Ox grave. The entire tomb stone was tilted to ramp over the opposite earth deity temple. His lineage can still be found in Taiwan, Thailand and even Malaysia. We found one old master at the ripe age of 70s still in pink of health using his method to do FengShui, in the southern tip of Johore. While in Thailand, an entire clan is dedicated to his lineage, practising his teaching called the mysterious Geng...
LIN LANGXIAN 林浪仙
The deity of the wave, Mr. Lin is an accomplished GanZhou gentleman DiLi master en route to FuJian for the imperial examination decided to travel by sea in fear of the tiger infested inland roads (a little strange for FengShui masters accustomed to forest). Strike by storm, he landed on the beach north of Taiwan. Salvaged by the locals he decided to make Taiwan his home. After successfully dotting at least 100 meridian spots on KuanYin mountain, he forgone his imperial examination quest and single-mindedly decided to go pro as FengShui master.
He wrote an entire treatise on the 100 spots he has discovered and he even buried each and every spot with an inscribed slab. He loved to challenge other FengShui masters to some extend he was also famed as the destroyer of others FengShui. These 100 spots of meridian became a fanatical quest for modern day Taiwanese leader including its former president of Taiwan. Unfortunately many of these spots were not found and still remained buried, some believed to be within the national park of Taiwan.
He was also known to have dotted the grave for the family of Taiwan's richest industrialist, Mr. Wang YungChi nick named the Plastic King of Taiwan. This tycoon came from a poor family background. His ancestor has chosen to be buried on the spot with delayed auspicious and they have to wait an entire 60 JiaZi to prosper.
Mr. Lin was well taken cared off by his benefactor. Upon his death it was said that the land of his burial was successful but the burial wasn't. Therefore his descendants did not enjoy the blessings of his tomb
It was believed that his lineage was passed down to the family of the late grandmaster Zhen ZiNan, who has successfully rediscovered the meridian spot of Lin LangXian, one being used by the Taiwan's richest industrialist, Mr. Wang YungChi himself, nick named the Plastic King of Taiwan in KuanYin Mountain.
LIN PANXIAN 林半仙
Another GuangXi pedigree FengShui grandmaster known as Half-Deity Lin. He travels to the northern side of Taiwan during the period of Japanese administration of Taiwan. Famed for his ability to locate water source, he was famed to have dotted a meridian known as the the auspicious crane meridian. This meridian was so strange that once it is dotted, he will go blind. So, an agreement was set that the benefactor shall look into his welfare for his entire life due to his blindness. However, one faithful event of the benefactor dishing him a plate of dead mutton, had him seek revenge against his benefactor. He told his benefactor that the crane meridian he dotted has some issue. It required re-burial. Buying into his scheme, his benefactor dug up the grave again and mysteriously releasing all the cranes from the grave. A gush of spring water spit out and Half-Deity Lin took the water to wash his eye and at once his blindness went away. The meridian spot was rendered useless...
Half-Deity Lin has a very vengeful character and most likely his seven killing characters resulted in him going awry with the Japanese administration of his time. He was later arrested and put to death. Before he die, he tricked the Japanese governor into burying him in the spot known as the Scissor Xue. He must be buried inverted with the head down the burial hole. Upon burial, the entire village was struck with plague with many death. This Scissor Xue was known as the worst malignant Xue of his time. So bad of its effect that his coffin was later dug up and reburial to another site. A bronze statute of the late Jiang KaiShek was later erected to suppress the Xue. Even so, an earth deity temple was built opposite it to further suppress the malignant effect of the Xue.
EMPEROR PRODUCING LAND
Taiwan is believed to be a potential emperor producing land, verified by the polymath Emperor QianLong himself. Having worried of a potential uprising, QianLong dispatched his entire team of FengShui masters to destroy the FengShui of Taiwan. Until today, no Taiwanese President is able to confront China. Some notable examples are the attempt to choke the dragon's neck and burying ShaQi known as Heaven enclosure and Earthly Net formation to break the Dragon Qi.
FengShui for the Taiwanese are not just superstitions but daily matters. Even though they may looked very superstitious but the common Taiwanese may know more about FengShui then any others. These places of interests are now favourite tourist spots such as the 7 dipper Xue surrounding the lake in the central of Taiwan. Yet, validating these meridians required strong fundamental of FengShui beyond just normal sight seeing...
Whatever it is please do not succumb to believe that if the incoming dragon is metal direction, the colour of the soil for that direction should be metallic. These sorts of pathetic theories only to be found in the belly of Bolehland Con Master. It is common to find a combination of five colour soils for the entire mountain and does it means to say the entire mountain is the meridian spot? Crazy! Also remember tasting the soil with your mouth is not a requirement. These are only methods befitting masters that are known to be Ghost Eating Soil 鬼食泥... Guess you get what we meant!
