This paper continues to single out the analysis of the Obscure Heaven 60D as a continuous examination of the use of the 3 sets of Earth Penetrating Dragon, hereinafter called the equal division 60D. XinFa 新法 continues to surprise us with many pre-SanYuan theories that may not have been widely known before to the mainstreams. In this instances, we are able to see how the SanYuan proponent actually adopted the 3 kinds of Gua 三般卦 into its SanYuan DaGua methodology. They singularly distilled the Obscure Heaven 60D as the pre-cursor to the currently known SanYuan DaGua Heaven Plate. Even more surprising, SanYuan DaGua actually adopted the Yao Application Methodology 用爻法 as their analysis of the 5 relationships.

This article will continue to disclose the intimate secrets of the Yao Method 爻法 to eventually link SanYuan to GuSanShi 古三式, or the ancient Three Styles of DunJia 遁甲, TaiYi 太乙 and LiuRen 六壬. Collectively, these GuSanShi 古三式 are also called QiMen SanShi 奇門三式. The root of SanYuan vested in QiMen. The root of QiMen vested in the Calendric Systems. The Calendric Systems are the forerunner of how Qi spirals through the LoShu giving birth to the forerunner of SanYuan Flying Stars called – The Six Jia Flying Palaces 六甲飛宫. In ancient time, the term Flying Palaces 飛宫 means Flying Star.
6 JIA FLYING PALACES 六甲飛宫
The analysis of Obscure Heaven NaJia 渾天納甲, Yao Application Methodology 用爻法 is also sometimes called the 5 Relationship Analysis 五亲 to identify the locations of Child 子, Father 父, Wealth 財 and Officer 官. Unlike the normal 6Yao Divination techniques, the Self is not referred to as it is related to the deceased.
Take this Obscure Heaven 60D 渾天60龍 as an example…
This 60D BingZi has given this Wind over Water, Kun 困 Hexagram - Trap. By virtue of Obscure Heaven NaJia 渾天納甲, we obtained: -
Child 子 is in 4th Yao
Father 父 is in 2nd and 6th Yao
Wealth 財 is in 1st Yao
Officer 官 in 3rd Yao
All these 5 Relations 五亲 are presence in this example. This Hexagram conforms to bring tidings to Resources and Descendent Luck, Wealth and Officer Relationships. The question now is which are the sectors that will bring GOOD TIDINGS?
The 6 Yao Method 六爻法 is supposed to have its own way to insert the “directional factors” into the equation by adopting the 4 Heraldic Beasts Methodology 四象法. However this is not the case… Instead, it opted for QiMen 奇門… giving hint the possibility that the 6 Yao’s 6 Heraldic Beasts Method 六爻六象法 is a later modification or invention derived from QiMen 奇門.
SANYUAN QIMEN 三元奇門
QiMen 奇門, being one of the oldest art forms are the mother of SanYuan 三元. The entire framework of SanYuan 三元 is built upon the foundation of QiMen 奇門 via a perpetual set of clockworks that closely knitted to the calendric system. To further understand such, you ought to know these fundamentals such as JieQi 節氣, Hou 候, Dun 遁 and Ju 局.
The 60D 60龍, having 6 of its pair receiving additional 2 Hou 候 will give a total of 72 Hou 候 of the 24 JieQi 節氣 or Seasonal Node. From these 24 seasonal nodes, the first half are Yang Dun 遁 and the second half are Yin Dun 遁. This YinYang threshold is a border that will cut through the winter 冬至 and the summer solstices 夏至. The Dun 遁 will decides how Qi would dance to the comic music… and as a results, a recognisable patterns that repeats and mirrors itself called Formation Ju 局 are created. These Formation Ju 局 are the indexes of which a QiMen 奇門 plate will be constructed.
DIFFERENT SCHOOLS DIFFERENT STROKES. Not all schools agree on the followings: -
For the ease of discussion, we had appended herewith a schedule for discussion only. We, personally don’t quite buy this “shit”.
LOCATING THE 6 JIA LEAD 六甲旬符頭
In SanYuan 三元 the 60 JiaZi are generally grouped into Streams 旬 of 6, being each controlling 10 JiaZi. Therefore the lead stem or FuTou 符頭 are the 6Jia 六甲, leaders of the streams. In this exercise, one ought to locate the leaders of every Yao’s JiaZi. This will determine where the starting point of every 6Jia 六甲 is, in the next episode…
… Continue from the same example, we obtained: -
Child 子 is in 4th Yao – DingHai FuTou 符頭 in JiaShen
Father 父 is in 2nd – WuChen FuTou 符頭 in JiaZi and 6th Yao – DingWei FuTou 符頭 in JiaChen
Wealth 財 is in 1st Yao – WuYin FuTou 符頭 in JiaXu
Officer 官 in 3rd Yao – WuWu FuTou 符頭 in JiaYin
STARTING THE FLIGHT 符頭定宮法
BingZi 60D found itself within Great Snow 大雪 of the 24 JieQi 節氣, Middle Hou 中候, YinDun 陰遁 – reverse order, taking Ju7 七局 – where the following FuTou 符頭 will starts from these palaces: -
TAKING THE FLIGHT 符頭推卦
Array the subsequent JiaZi accordingly and the following results will be obtained: -
Child 子 is in 4th Yao – DingHai FuTou 符頭 in JiaShen: Kun Palace (2).
Father 父 is in 2nd – WuChen FuTou 符頭 in JiaZi: Zhen Palace (3) and 6th Yao – DingWei FuTou 符頭 in JiaChen: Li Palace (9).
Wealth 財 is in 1st Yao – WuYin FuTou 符頭 in JiaXu: Kun Palace (2).
Officer 官 in 3rd Yao – WuWu FuTou 符頭 in JiaYin: Dui Palace (7).
It becomes obvious that the “Rocket Science” of the day, is to eventually complicate the reading of the Yao 爻法 into Flying Palaces QiMen 飛宫奇門. This may also be the reason how SanYuan proponent improvise such into creating their very own Yao analysis based on 定爻法 Fixed Yao method, 飛爻法 Flying Yao method and 抽爻換象 Flipping Yao to change the imagery method [Details read HERE]. They cannot just exist out of thin air, right?
Locating Father, Son, Wealth and Officer locations are to enable one to further identify another sets of “Jewels” or “Treasure Box” known in FengShui jargon as Salaried Horse Nobleman 祿馬貴. That shall be another story for another day…
Note: Please take note that the above said illustration is only one example adopted by ONE school. We do not recommend the use of the above said techniques due to many faults. Kindly enroll into our academy if you want to learn more, otherwise just take it as information only... Reader's discretion is highly recommended.
This paper continues to examine the use of the 3 sets of Earth Penetrating Dragon, hereinafter called the equal division 60D. XinFa 新法 proud of having knew the secret of these 60D. While the GuFa 古法 thinks that it is absurd to "pull down your pants to fart". The 3 rings of 60D is never to be found in the modern SanHe LuoPan. The only traces left was the 60D attached to the Human Plate 人盤. It was 'extinct' since. Later XinFa 新法 morphed it into the early SanYuan School. These 3 rings of the 60D paved the method now, known as the 64 SanYuan DaGua.

三元龍虎門 - SANYUAN DRAGON TIGER DOOR
紅鸞水法 - HONGLUAN WATER METHOD
穿山透地 - PENETRATING TIGER AND RESURFACING DRAGON
To appreciate as to why XinFa 新法 uses the Tiger as the Body and the Dragon as the Application, we have to revisit Zhang JiuYi's 張九儀 words again: -
CHINESE ASTRONOMY 101 - OBSCURE HEAVEN 渾天
Obscure Heaven 渾天 is referred to as the "Egg-like hypothesis" where the earth is surrounded by a “Heaven” sphere rotating over it. The celestial bodies are attached to the “Heaven” sphere. To demarcate the static dimensions of the Heaven, Heavenly stars were employed. There were generally 2 sets Heavenly stars, Group of stars within the ZiWei Enclosure and Group of stars within the Equatorial Belt, known as 28 asterism 廿八天星.
To demarcate the dynamic dimensions of the Heaven, these 7 governors 七政 were employed. They are the 5 planets, namely, Mercury 水星, Venus 金星, Mars 火星, Jupiter 木星, Saturn 土星, Sun日 and Moon 月. Collectively, these are the early Geocentric Model of the Obscure Heaven 渾天. These 7 governors 七政 move while the stars are fixed. They are called the “celestial - palaces” 星宮. Observer from earth created devises such as armillary sphere 渾儀 to “measure the Heaven”. Time master 時師 morph it into the LuoPan and thus called Heavenly Ruler 量天尺 or the outer astronomical rings.
This is what it meant by Obscure Heaven opens the precious mirror 渾天開寶鏡.
PLATE LINE 盤線
Plate and Line 盤線, is a jargon comprises of 2 words, the Plate 盤 which is referring to the face of the LuoPan and the Line 線 which is the string attached to the LuoPan. Collectively, it is a verb meaning pressing against the string so as to “lock” the plate of the LuoPan from moving. Only by virtue of such, the Precious Mirror 寶鏡 can be opened, a romantic jargon of reading the LuoPan.
SANYUAN 60 DRAGON 三元60龍
Each time when you Plate Line 盤線 (assuming it is a verb) the 60D, you will obtain 3 sets of Hexagrams comprising, Heaven Yuan Gua 天元本卦, Earth Yuan Gua 地元本卦 and Obscure Heaven Gua 渾天本卦. This technique is known as obtaining 3 kinds of Gua 卦取三般. These 3 kinds of Gua 三般卦 will give the following readings: -
1. Earth Plate – Portend占 the Vein and the Meridian
2. Human Plate – Portend占 the Effect of the Embrace to the Meridian
3. Heaven Plate – Portend占 the Effect of the Water Mouth to the Meridian
OBSCURE HEAVEN NAJIA 渾天納甲
The moment you obtain the 3 kinds of Gua 卦取三般, every Hexagram can tell a complete story in itself. The science and art of this is called – Heaven and Earth NaJia 天地納甲. Details can be read from the followings: -
1. - DISCOURSE IN HEAVEN EARTH NAJIA YINYANG
2. - DISCOURSE IN HEAVEN EARTH NAJIA YINYANG 2
However, when the NaJia 納甲 method is assigned to the Obscure Heaven Gua 渾天本卦, for some SanHe school, it is called, Obscure Heaven NaJia 渾天納甲 – superficially to assign the 60D 透地龍 for the respective GuaYao 卦爻 and to portend 占 the following lucks 運: -
1. Son, Father, Wealth and Officer - 子父財官
2. Salaried Horse and Noble People - 祿馬貴人
3. Golden Water and the Sun Moon - 金水日月
4. 3 Mysterious and the 4 Auspicious -三奇四吉
Each and every methods to define the Luck 運 itself is Rocket Science beyond the scope of this paper. In a nutshell, it is how you blend QiMen and SanHe into a collective whole.
TO BE CONTINUE, MAYBE…
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.
MOON PHASE NAJIA 月相纳甲
Continue from HERE...
One theory of NaJia is based on Moon Phase 月相. Meaning the point of observation in from earth, Geocentric.
Kun Qian Kan Li are all 1,9,7,3 therefore Yang - Early Heaven Numbers.
Zhen Dui Xun Gen are all 8, 4, 2, 6 therefore Yin - Later Heaven Numbers.
Points to note:
ONE GUA CONNECTS QI, NAJIA ONE QI - 一挂同气, 纳甲一气
Based on the principle above, two postulations are derived: -
Points to note:
Based on these postulations above, one obtain YinYang of the Earth Plate for the SanHe LuoPan.
Some quarters believed that such YinYang of the Earth Plate are wrong. The critics are from both YangGong and SanYuan school. Their arguments, among others, are as the followings: -
Questions - Do you know what is the correct postulation of NaJia?
This is quite a modern classic authored by Grandmaster Zhang JiuYi claimed to have lived in the Qing period as the royal tomb supervisor and acclaimed to have been from the lineage of Grandmaster Lai BuYi, famous for the method of 砂派 or the school of embrace. Contain within this classic is the application for using the 72 dragon earth penetrating mountain and the 60 dragon earth resurfacing mountain. These secret knowledge can be summarize as the following poem: -
To appreciate this poem, one would have to understand the following jargons: -
What is meant by 穿山 penetrating mountain and 透地 resurfacing earth? Why is it differentiated by 虎 tiger and 龍 dragon? What is meant by 渾天 or the Obscure Heaven and 寶鏡 the precious mirror? Of all the five elements, what has it got to do with 金水 metal and water? Strange enough, what has it got to do with the moon 月?
After meeting a number of HongKong masters, we can see that they are really thrilled by this classic. One has this to say: -
Another postulation... (More towards the explanation of the LuoPan)
TRULY, WILL THIS THEORY HOLDS WATER?
