YUAN GUA 元卦
Learnt that in Australia there is a revival of another form of SanYuan method. This is called YuanGua 元卦 method. Claimed to have been from the pedigree of GanZhou under the lineage of Liu JingDong, one of the first generation of disciple of Yang YunSong. For more historical account of him, read ‘here’. What is interesting of the claim from this lineage is, they are the only ‘family’ that is allowed to teach the ‘genuine YangGong’ FengShui method to outsiders. Very ‘fishy claim’. The other interesting part of the story is, the ‘transmission of knowledge’ was intact since the ‘cultural revolution’. A good point to ponder, as to how much has really left? Anyway, the ‘lineage holder’ is only allowed to teach the first of three parts within the entire knowledge for mass consumption.
It was said that YuanGua 元卦 provides:
YuanGua 元卦 pays heavy emphasis on water mouth 水口, instead of dragon 龍.So far this is ‘agreeable’ compared to the ‘mass consumption knowledge’ of SanHe. When the period is ‘prosper’ and the prosperous ‘star’ is in the water mouth sector, the entire area will not be prosperous. This is because the prosperity is being ‘flushed out’. YuanGua 元卦 measures period based on the LoShu 洛書內丹盤. Quoting instances as in Melbourne, during period 2 there was a massive depression. In Sydney, during period 4 almost the same time the Sydney Opera House was built, another massive depression hit Sydney. Unfortunately this is not always true, for other cases. You can always do a ‘reverse engineering’ to proof this point.
YuanGua 元卦 pays heavy emphasis of immediate landform to Eight Killing 八煞黃泉. This method has been prescribed ‘here’. The only catch here is, YuanGua 元卦 defines, ‘fake’ and ‘real’ Eight Killing 八煞黃泉. This is ‘real’ Eight Killing 八煞黃泉 when conform will ‘screw up your FengShui’ big time, either in health 丁 via Eight Killing 八煞 or in wealth 財 via Yellow Spring 黃泉.There is an undisclosed way of determining this but in landform 形 itself it is very easy to strike this unlucky formation, especially in ‘terrace houses’.
To illustrate this point, Eight Killing 八煞黃泉 will be activated once water is incoming 45 degree of your main gate relative to your main door. In normal situation, it will always be either to the left 龍 or the right side 虎. The chances are 50-50. If you strike the ‘real’, too bad. If you strike the ‘fake’, congratulations!
So, what are the ‘fake’ Eight Killing 八煞黃泉?
SIMA WATER METHOD 司马水法
YuanGua 元卦 borrows from SiMa the Monk Water Method 司马头陀水法:
Is kind of a cool, to belong to a lineage. There are plenty of lineages for sales in GanZhou, GuangXi. You take a stone and throw, almost anybody got hit is a lineage holder of GuangXi YangGong FengShui especially central within the descendants of Yang楊, Zheng曾, Liao廖 and Liu劉. This is where people says, abusing lineage rocks become lineage sucks!
The Liu劉 method has been largely available in the masses covering all the ‘popular theories’ from the Taiwanese styles SanHe to the HonKee styled QMDJ. The YangGong ‘old method’ school prescribed that these were watered down methodologies.
The late LDX has a point, especially when you reworked the YangGong methods against the Eight Killing 八煞黃泉, one will notice that when YangGong methods are in place, Eight Killing has been automatically taken care of. SiMa Water Method 司马头陀水法 is only an extension to the YangGong methods.
OLD FOX'S TALE...
We posted in our FB page, detail HERE and we found that not many people knows about SanYuan...
Therefore, This is the FIRST TIME the secret of the HEAVEN YUAN PLATE 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!
One OldFox has this to say, “To answer your question posted at the beginning of this thread, the original SanYuan YinYang is the one on the right, the B version, because the YinYang allocation is based on the YinYang of the SanYuan of the Tian Yuan, Di Yuan and Ren Yuan. The version on the left, the A version, was promoted by Master Shen JuReng used in his Flying Star and it is based on the YinYang of the Stems and Branches plus the four diagonal Trigams of the LH arrangement being all Yang according to the Hetu arrangement. They are two different ways to express the same philosophical idea of ‘Early Heaven being the Ti or the Principle and Later Heaven being the Yong or the Application 先天为体, 后天为用. IMHO, to really appreciate the different Yin YangYang and Yang YinYin configurations, one has to realize that the different FengShui methods, and there are many, are the result of different ways to express a philosophical preference 'mechanically', to say that 'ShenJuReng's postulation is not quite there yet', shows you and David have yet to reach this point of understanding, but this is just my personal opinion, no offence is intended. May be you do know but want to keep it as a secret until we can attend your classes to find out, or maybe you and David just want to tease us! Either way it is a good thing, it keeps us thinking. Thank you for your contribution… Where are the 3 rings of the SanHe and SanYuan LuoPan? There you go again, 'the pot calling the kettle black' ´by JT the Just Teasing, who is really David Yak the architect with a fake name. Only the SanHe LuoPan has the 3 Twenty-four-Mountain rings, SanYuan LuoPan only has one and the 3 SanYuan are built into the one ring, you will only waste your time looking for the other two rings in a San Yuan LuoPan. Get YOUR fundamentals right before you tell others to get theirs right! Indeed, there are plenty of craps being taught out there...”
EH AS PRINCIPLE LH AS APPLICATION 先天为体后天为用
Let’s investigate these craps a little…
The original version of SanYuan’s YinYang Dragon is not the B version. It is definitely not based on Tian Yuan, Di Yuan and Ren Yuan. These came very much later. They have another meanings to them. The A version is the original SanYuan’s YinYang Dragon. This is the Tian Yuan Dragon and its YinYang is derived from the LoShu, Early Heaven as the body or the Principle, 先天为体. Shen JuReng derived such as his basis for Shen’s Flying Star and it is based on the YinYang of the Stems and Branches plus the four diagonal Trigams of the LH arrangement being all Yang according to the Hetu arrangement (detail read HERE). This is a typical text-book answer.
ONE GUA CONNECTS QI NAJIA ONE QI 一挂同氣納甲一氣.
Similar to its SanHe forerunner, SanYuan has its peculiar way to subscribe to Early Heaven as the body or the Principle and Later Heaven as the Application, 先天为体, 后天为用. Both SanHe and SanYuan subscribed to the same method of decoding Heaven’s secret called NaJia. SanHe is well known to adopt what is known as One Gua same/combine Qi, NaJia singular Qi, 一挂同氣納甲一氣. One Gua here referred to Early Heaven Qi connection to formulate their YinYang dragon, detail read HERE. Therefore, it has mislead many that SanHe NaJia is based on Early Heaven as Principle.
HEAVEN YUAN NAJIA PLATE 天元纳甲盘
SanYuan subscribed to NaJia to allocate the 8 Gua into the 24 mountains. Instead of using One Gua same/combine Qi, NaJia singular Qi, 一挂同氣納甲一氣 principle liked its predecessor, SanYuan uses LoShu matching the Later Heaven BaGua as Application, 后天为用. Therefore, these sets of the 9 stars (comprising the LaterHeaven BaGua) form what is probably known as 天元纳甲盘. Each star is repeated 4 or 2 times forming 6 mountain groups within the 24 mountains such as the followings: -
1 - 子辰申癸, 6 - 甲乾, water
2 - 乙坤, 7 - 酉丑丁巳, fire
3 - 卯未亥庚, 8 - 艮丙 wood
4 - 辛巽, 9 - 午戌寅亥 metal
With each of the 4 elements balanced, these form the original SanYuan 9 stars ring within the 24 mountains. Again, you will notice that it is the LoShu matching the Later Heaven BaGua to derive NaJia as Application, 后天为用 and not the LoShu matching Early Heaven BaGua as the body or the Principle, 先天为体. Saying thus in application, the HeTu GuaQi is still accounted for.
EARTH YUAN PLATE 地元盘
We recap, from this version A we derived the NaJia 9 stars ring 天元纳甲盘. There is also a subsequent Earth Yuan Plate 地元盘, that we shall not disclose. From here, the next layer, we shall discuss about the different Yin YangYang and Yang YinYin configurations that form the so called modern SanYuan earth plate 24 YinYang Dragon 三元盘阴阳龙 as shown in version B (we shall discuss about it in detail some other time).
SANYUAN 3 NEEDLES 三元三盘
One SanYuan school advocated that there are 3 needles in the SanYuan LuoPan just liked its counterpart SanHe. These needles are the Heaven Human and Earth needles. They are meant to measure different things. As mentioned above, the original SanYuan YinYang Dragon is called the Heaven Needle as in version A while the contemporary SanYuan YinYang Dragon is called the Human Needle as in version B. What is absent is known as the Earth Needle. Without knowing this Earth needle, one will not able to measure earth Qi, thus not able to do FengShui… This SanYuan School in particular reckoned that the current known SanYuan earth plate 24 YinYang Dragon 三元盘阴阳龙 is not really the earth plate but the HUMAN plate instead…
OLD FOX SEE OLD FOX DO...
So, when OldFox says, “May be you do know but want to keep it as a secret until we can attend your classes to find out, or maybe you and David just want to tease us!”, reflects truly that the OldFox knows nuts about this subject, especially true when he says, “Only the SanHe LuoPan has the 3 Twenty-four-Mountain rings, SanYuan LuoPan only has one and the 3 SanYuan are built into the one ring…”. As it is OldFox needs to - “Get YOUR fundamentals right before you tell others to get theirs right! Indeed, there are plenty of craps being taught out there...”
As for the other friend from Indonesia, you will be glad to hear that SanYuan people also advocated LoShu matching the Later Heaven BaGua to derive NaJia as Application, 后天为用 but it is used in other unique ways.
SANYUAN YUANKONG GEOMANCY 三元元空風水
SanYuan is a school heavily annexed to the system of calendric sciences one being known as SanYuan QiMen DunJia 三元奇门遁甲. As time passes, the authentic art of SYQMDJ has been watered down. With the emergence of master liked Jiang DaHung notably bastardizing the work of grandmaster Yang YunSong as in DiLi BianZhen, XuanKong DaGua 玄空大卦 emerged to replace SanYuan DaGua 三元大卦. At one level, SanYuan is able to merge with SanHe. SanHe has remained to be the fore runner of YangGong method. All FengShui methods come from Qing WuZi before GuoPu and subsequently Yang YunSong. There is only one method – YangGong method or probably known also as GanZhou method. Subsequently, splinter group forms and SanYuan school was born and probably known also as FuJian method. SanYuan school is developed upon SanHe theories and at certain level, it merges.
This is the FIRST TIME the secret of how the LOSHU SPINS 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!
LEANING STAR - THE STATIC PLATE
The static plate of Leaning Star comprising of the commonly known forward cycle and reverse cycle. The forward cycle starts from the Center 5 and continue with the sequence 6789 and follow by 1234. The illustration shown here is the forward cycle.
The reverse cycle starts from the Center 5 and take a reverse path with the sequence 4321 and follow by 9876. It is a reverse flow as shown by the following diagram.
Shen JuReng took this as his basis for Flying Star ie. odd Yang fly forward, even Yin fly reverse. Yin or Yang follows the YinYang Yang or YangYin Yin of the 24 mountains SanYuan One Ring LuoPan.
However, this is only the XuanKong method not SanYuan.
LEANING STAR - THE DYNAMIC PLATE
There is a SanYuan method for the Dynamic Plate. We called it dynamic because the 1st path that the star lean differed and not static. If you look carefully to the static plate reverse cycle, you will eventually realised that the 1st path of the star lean takes a total opposite of the 1st path the static plate forward cycle. As a result it looks as though the star leans backward like 5 4321 9876. But no. It is still a forward cycle with a different path of commencement.
It means to say, the first path that the central star leans can eventually be any of the 8 palaces within the LoShu grid and not necessarily Northwest. So, given the 8 directions, you will have 8 sets of Leaning Star as your natal chart. This is a SanYuan method of Leaning Star.
Next instalment - Dragon God
The above description is commonly found in Google. It defines in face value the 24 mountains of the SanYuan Earth Plate. More important it can be grouped and defined with its respective YinYang as the followings: -
4 Graves, 4 Baths and 4 Stables are referred to the 12 growth phases. Stables are referred to Sickness or the Horse positions. The 4 Yang Stems and 4 Yin Stems together with the 4 Ordinal Gua complete the 24 mountains.
