Terry Gou 郭台銘 born October 8, 1950 is a Taiwanese tycoon who is the founder and chairman of Foxconn, a company that does contract manufacturing of electronics for other companies such as Apple Inc. It is the largest electronics manufacturing Services Company in the world, with factories in several countries, mostly in mainland China, where it employs 1.2 million people and is its largest exporter.

Gou was born to a poor family where his father was just a career police officer. At one time, they were so poor that the entire family live in a temple 慈惠宮 nearby. Occupying a sanctum now known as the God of Wealth altar 五路財神殿, it was said that exactly that spot called the Toad Meridian 蟾蜍穴 is the FengShui meridian originated from the vein of BanJio Ling’s Family 板橋林家的龍脈 that has the capacity to produce tycoon. Terry Gou was lucky to have live there for almost a decade that the luck of his family begin to change for the better, therefore they move.
Gou’s father passed away at the ripe age of 80 and was buried in North Taiwan, village of SanXia, White Rooster Mount 台北縣三峽鎮白雞山區. White Rooster Mount 白雞山 comprises of 3 peaks – Deer Cave Peak 鹿窟尖, Rooster Shape Mount 雞罩山 and White Rooster Mount 白雞山. It was believed that this spot FengShui also benefited Gou.

Then the question come… who is the FengShui master behind the success of Gou?
THE ILLUSIVE FATHER AND SON FENGSHUI MASTERS - 福惠堂林金寶父子
This team of FengShui family shun publicity, the perfect candidate for most of the tycoon in Taiwan alike. Unlike their contemporary that pay heavily for advertisement and buy their ways to be media darling, this father and son team is so low profile that you don’t even notice that they actually existed. Their FengShui establishment is hidden within the alley that you need to observe closely to see their hall mark marked FuHui Tang 福惠堂. This FengShui outlet is formerly helmed by Master Lin ChunXiong 林春雄 (The Elder Lin) and now handed over to Master Lin JingBao 林金寶 (The Younger Lin). Collectively, they are responsible for the success of Gou’s industrial ventures.
Ever since, many other tycoons are hunting them down and strangely, another FengShui master by the name of Zhang QingYuan 张清渊 publicly disclosed that he is the legitimate FengShui master for Terry Gou 郭台铭御用风水师. Zhang QingYuan 张清渊 has since been very active in the media and FengShui circle within the non-Chinese speaking community too. He has written a so called – The World’s Numero-Uno Encyclopaedia of FengShui LiQi Book 天下第一风水理气大全. You may have a chance to learn from him…
There are always 2 sides to the truth. The genuine one would preferred to be extremely low profile while the others may opt for a more glamorous path such as calling themselves as – Public Figure… Have you ever wonder why?
OLD GLAMOROUS TEACHING OF PUBLIC FIGURE FENGSHUI MASTERS
Confession of an Instructor Part One - 01122008
I remembered a conversation I had with an instructor in the self acclaimed academy of Chinese Metaphysics in town; he admits that right up to this date, he has to teach all the redundant formulae laced in the module work book that it is almost worthless. I asked, if he doesn’t believe in the system why would he continue and silent was his only reply. He then said, if by all means he could help is to go beyond the system of the academy by affording others to be aware of these redundant formulae via other means, at least his Karmic effect would have been lessened. On such accord, it will be instrumental to share with the masses of what these redundant theories are all about. Hopefully, other good souls could also help to spread the “gospel” in light of the coming Armageddon for the ride by night academy.
The lesson on 8 mansions was a disgrace. Yet these proprietors had the cheek to lace it as advance 8 mansions by incorporating the system of NaJia, when the notion of NaJia had been grossly misinterpreted. The good thing is, this proprietor advocated the House Gua instead of the Ming Gua and at least husband and wife of different Gua group will not have to sleep in separate beds. Yet the confusions is so much that later on by the day, when the introduction of Shen’s Flying Star comes into the picture, trying to blend both methods result in disasters. Yet these proprietors have the cheek to find ways of consolidation beyond the means of natural order, seemingly force fitted and they re-brand it as whatsoever for life. Can one believe it?
The most fundamental of establishing sitting and facing is grossly erred. Stepping 3 feet behind, looking outward from the inside is ridicules, not in virtue of concept but in virtue of logic. The reasons of free from magnetic interference were absolute rubbish. All from the first lesson to the last were talking about establishing facing versus location, sitting versus facing with charts that does not fit into real life applications of the LuoPan. When it comes to measuring the bed, stove and the office desk, it will be a whole lot of display of whimsical fallacies, so force fitted that students at the end of the day will require purchasing a LuoPan, of inconsistent rings, that they are only taught to use the 24 mountain ring for everything below Heaven. How thoughtful and wise, after that, be called as a practitioner. Imagined, how many others will first be conned then insult in this manner.
For the rest of the course, one seemingly consistency is the lesson on Shen’s Flying Star was taught when, the academy, in fact, did not believe in it. I would strongly recommend the book written by a Singapore Teacher Practitioner called something liked, Fundamental of the Science of FengShui, which cost lesser then a real life course and loaded with better information on the lesson of Shen’s Flying Star methodology. In a nutshell, the course is worthless. To those who are Chinese literate, might as well read from the source book of Shen Si Xuan Kong Xue, in three volumes.
However, the highlight was the instructor, whom capitalized on the academy’s fame and marketing to provide private consultation beyond the charges of the founder proprietor himself, taking all opportunity of the class to first Con his potential client, then Insult them accordingly for seemingly private BaZi readings that cost a fortune to the unassumingly students of metaphysics, notably the well to do ones. Out of fear these students duly complied to his request that always end with an audit that cost a hefty price with seemingly no follow-up. As the local market is seemingly waned, the efforts to sell these courses are booming elsewhere in the western and southern part of the world, repeating its cycle once again, in full force.
Confession of an Instructor Part Two - 01122008
In Level 2: -
The lesson starts with the so-called 8 Killing forces at its most blatant serving, almost devoid of the fact that this is indeed a SanHe method best used with a SanYuan LuoPan, how insightful? It starts with the deliberation of incoming dragon from Kan cannot meet door facing at Chen, otherwise the occupants of the property will be dead. How convenience. Next, the applied version of a house sitting in Chen cannot see broken mountain in Kan. Same disaster will befall to the occupant of the property. How convincing. Nothing mentioned about the source of this method, keeping everyone in the dark. Next, in the higher level, it was revealed that it has a later and early heaven application. This is very refreshing for a SanHe method interpreted in a SanYuan ways, a very interesting point of departure.
Next, the 8 Roads of Destruction shared the same blatant serving, using the SanYuan LuoPan, very insightful. No discussion on the nature of this method as a derivative from more reliable sources. In the higher levels, when the assistant star water method was taught, students are more confused as in one method, water exit were auspicious and the others were not. So, which is right and which is wrong? Such inconsistency is obvious for the rest of the lessons, available or noticeable only by the initiated. By the time, one knew of the facts, it would be too late. Again, the graphical representations are not reflective of the way it is applied in real life. How could the student master the art?
Next, the peach blossom water, measuring incoming with the SanYuan LuoPan again. 3 Harmony roads indicating SanHe as the followings, if there is a mountain in Shen, house sitting in Zi and water exiting in Chen, then this will form the water frames of Shen Zi Chen, conforming to the SanHe principle, obviously a method to make millionaires. Same were to be applied indoor with tables, chairs and book selves. Don’t forget the aquarium! This is SanHe methodology using the SanYuan LuoPan.
Next, the TaiYang Dau Shan date selection for the mortification of SanSha, TaiSui and SuiPo. The assumption were based on when the sun arrive at the mountain, all the evils will be pacify. Question, what has SanSha, TaiSui and SuiPo being the stars of ShenSha method has to do with this method? Are these stars evil by its own nature? Is TaiYang Dau Shan a method for date selection? Think again?
Next, the 5 Ghost carry tidbits, using the SanYuan LuoPan. This is a derivation method, only being informed to the students when they had reached level 5, as being part of the FuXing XuiFa. Complicating it with NaJia, the application was served raw in piecemeal beyond recognition, implying the application for the external. None has any clue pertaining to its application in reality.
Next, a revisit of Shen’s Flying Star and more 8 mansions screwed up theories before calling it up for the day. No question shall be entertained as more revelation will come in the higher level and kindly register with the marketer just outside of the lecture room for early bird discount. That was the parting message. Formally concluded means, the informal business of ConSulting for the instructor begins. How convenience. After graduating, students are able to call themselves as advance practitioner. Very wise indeed.
Confession of an Instructor Part Three - 01122008
In level 3 and a half: -
The opening lessons are all recognizing of landforms and its terminology of which is obvious and are largely made available in Chinese book on the same topic. Walking the dragon via the projectors with half cooked imagery, the wises choice besides FengShui entourage.
The main dish of the days is the water method in SanHe. Now, students must buy the SanHe LuoPan. What is to be used of the SanYuan LuoPan, nobody knows. The most impressive of all is the SanHe 4 major water exits. There are basically 4 structures, of which water must not be outgoing from these directions and water must best come in from these directions. It is therefore paramount important to establish the following auspicious facing to tap into the water mouth which is equivalent to the road junctions. Facing is based on the gate, so tilting of gates is the norm of SanHe FengShui, just to receive water. Use this method together with the 72 dragon for measuring the quality of the Gaps, based on the HETU luck cycle with the selections only of the Bing, Ding, Geng and Xin stems for the rest is emptiness called turtle shell and squeezing emptiness, based on WenWang NaJia postulation. Interesting hypothesis indeed. These are all fallacies.
The sub-dishes are nothing but the introduction of mountain method notably of LaiGong’s human plate, measuring and divination of the embrace, determine the quality of the veins and spots using the 60 dragons, taught in half heartedly without dwelling in the basics of how would such 60 dragons be established from the outer to the inner rings of the LuoPan. A brushing encounter of the 3 auspicious 6 elegance method of embrace for the evaluation of the vicinity, as a standalone technique devoid of the water method, classify as SanHe and solely squeeze into the 24 mountain Earth plate of the SanHe LuoPan. These are also fallacies.
Again, upon graduation, one is entitled to be called; super advance practitioner and God bless all. Until such, no clue whatsoever of taking a sitting and a facing the SanHe method. This time around, the instructor has no time to answer question let alone do any sideline income from the students.
