THE FAKE EARTH DRAGON
We heard another fake YangGong FengShui theory in the market, both in Bolehland and the cradle of FengShui in the Middle Kingdom. This fake theory is related to the 5th element - earth. Such brandished theories are sold at a ransom USD20,000.00, to cheat the masses especially those from the west.
The late Grandmaster Li DingXing has been openly disclosing the fact that there are only 4 structures or SanHe frame in the YangGong old method such as Wood, Water, Fire and Metal. This is as prescribed in Jade Ruler Classics 玉尺䫎
The problem comes in with the Earth element. What does earth element follows? The late Grandmaster Li explained that ZhangShu states: -
Earth is the mother of Qi, have earth will have Qi. Qi is the mother of water, have Qi will have water. Therefore when Qi moves water moves. When Qi halt, water coagulates. Since earth follows water, incoming dragon is considered Yang and outgoing water mouth is considered Yin. This is known as Male and Female 雄雌.
So, earth dragon follows water structure/frame.
But this is not the case. Some took this theory a little further because in the model of YangGong FengShui that he learnt, he was never taught the very fundamentals of Yin and Yang. Therefore, he is not able to discern Yin Yang frames or structure. In that situation, whenever an Earth Xue is concerned, earth follows water may not able to explain the situation of a house or grave FengShui. So, a modification is require that is to say, earth dragon does not necessary follows water frame. This new theories are now available for sale.
To add sanctity to this phony method, it was claimed to be documented by some unknown ancestor in its practice journal that is able to be traced back to ancient YangGong practitioners who did the 13 Ming Emperors' tombs. The proprietor of this theory claimed that many masters failed to explain the greatness of Ming Dynasty due to the lack of knowledge of the earth dragon. If only the ancient masters of the past knew what is this phony theory about, they would have done a good job with the 13 Ming Emperors' tombs. Ming Dynasty would not have collapsed! For goodness sake only 3 tombs are opened to the public, how do one claimed that the rest of the 10 tombs failed because it does not conform to the phony earth dragon? This is how con master mislead the public.
This is what the fake earth dragon is all about that is carrying the price tag of USD20,000.00. To determine what structure or frame the earth dragon follows, first determine the incoming dragon. If the incoming dragon is water, it follows water. If it comes from metal, it follows metal and if it comes from fire, it follows fire. Unfortunately, these are all fake theories. The best thing is, it contradicted itself when the fake theories also stated, Xue is the incoming dragon and incoming dragon is the Xue. Great! Go measure incoming dragon... And is supposed to be the greatest YangGong secret of the century!
THE STATIC SANHE QI CONNECTION
Qi connection is a standard operating procedure SOP for practitioner to set up a FengShui formation. He must able to connect the internal structure with the external. Both SanHe and SanYuan schools shared the common approach but they termed it differently.
In SanHe, the Qi connection can be summed up as Incoming Dragon, Embrace, Meridian and Outgoing Water. Therefore, incoming dragon and Meridian or Xue are entirely different things. When these 4 aspects are connected, that is what is termed as riding Qi.
The only problem is how do you measure each and every one of these 4 aspects? Especially so with real case study of tycoon producing graves without a single tombstone for one to measure?
THE GRAVE WITH NO NAME (无名)
This is a grave belongs to the family of a tycoon who sells biscuit from locally to the international arena and he had also acquired a number of international brands to be under his establishment. The biscuit king's ancestral grave has no tomb stone and it was kept in that fashion until today. Apparently a recent visit revealed that the descendants preferred to keep it that way. This is one grave that has no tombstone, no fancy embraces and everything seems to be make shift!
