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…

There is another XKDG 玄空大卦 book in the market for the English readers but this book is not for the uninitiated. It jovially called itself as XKDG: Not Exactly for Idiots. It is a softcover book less than 300 pages written in a lucid style of the author trying to be funny at times to garnish a stale plate with otherwise dry and boring subject. Offered at a price of below USD50.00, with the same amount of “craps” found in live courses for the same subject for most schools of Chinese Metaphysics in the market that would probably burnt a deep hole in your pocket, like nothing less than USD5,000.00. It is truly an instructional book. However, being the initiated reader, we may offer some additional “craps” that is hardly heard of in this subject…
HOW THE HECK YOU GROUP YOUR HEXAGRAMS ? - 八宮位
WHAT IS THE MECHANICS OF XKDG? - 龍山向水
HOW TO SET UP A FORMATION IN XKDG? - 定局
THE "MAGICAL ART OF HARRY POTTER" IN THE HEXAGRAM'S YAO CHANGE... - 用爻法
The book ends its note with some “sticky issue” that court controversy such as: -
While we do agree with the author on such notion, but what if the actual FeiXing 飛星 method vested on the same fundamentals of DaGua 大卦, simply called it as SanYuan FeiXing 三元飛星? The FeiXing becomes the integral part of the entire system of SanYuan 三元. One ought to work its ways from the BaGua system of Eight Mansions to the 24 mountains of Feixing, then only the 64 Hexagrams of DaGua. By such you will find that XuangKong that we knew of today, is nothing more but a fake system…
By saying such, it apprently make sense that this book cost only USD 50.00 and yet what has been discussed are the core syllabus of many XKDG live courses in the market that can fetched up to USD10,000.00 probably in the West and some also said, in Bolehland and Kiasuland respectively... With added stuff liked QMDJ and called it SanYuan XianTian QMDJ XKDG , it may goes up to USD 15,000.00. Day light robbery? Not really if it really dishes out the real stuffs instead of the common knowledge found in many Chinese FengShui books of the same topic.
As for the Book, coincidentally called - XUANKONG DAGUA Not Exactly For Dummies written by our favorite author, Master Hung HinCheong, is strongly recommended to buy for collection...

A CASE IN MIND...
XIEZI OF SOON TO BE DRAGON SPOT - 18102010
The fiasco of soon to be master has opened up another opportunity. Exactly the sort of case study we ought to investigate - why would a FengShui practice (subject) ceased to survive in Kuala Lumpur? It was rather puzzling as the claimed expert in locating "dragon Spot" with self proclaimed XieZi would have located a wonderful office to begin with? Why all the sudden packed and go? We ought to understand what has gone so very wrong with the location itself or perhaps what has gone so wrong with the method of application.
Located at a commercial area, the tapping of Qian incoming with two rivers namely, Sungai Keroh and Sungai Batu, exiting at Xun could be well benefitted. Qi sequence from Templers, Selayang, Sungai Buloh, Kepong and all the way to Segambut and Sentul manifesting "cowboy town" Tell tale sign of robust business with a lack of nobility. That is why there are a lot of wealthy Chinaman.
Subject office is sitting Wu (Li) facing Zi (Kan), very close to DE, how can that be possible? Higher on the front and lower at the back, contradicting ideal land form principle. Conforming to the SanYuan LingZhen principle which is, in this case, only GOOD on paper because it is not supported by landform.
XKDG perspective, Dragon matching Mountain, GuaQi metal 9-4, Water matching Facing GuaQi water 1-6. All period 6 Gua conforms to lower period 8 onwards. What has gone so freaking wrong? All matching hexagram is not Out of Gua neither are they from different family of East River Gua. Qi communication, technically smooth.
SanHe perspective, Yang Fire structure incoming Extinct exiting Officer. Receiving Stale Qi and Exiting Vibrant Qi. Water mouth unlocked.
PostScript: Jo Ching said... any idea which yao is the sitting on? this is a chou yao huan xiang method. Might have changed to the wrong image.
XIEZI OF SOON TO BE DRAGON SPOT 2 - 20102010
Prompted by a fellow practitioner in Singapore about 抽爻换象, altering the Yao to transform the imagery. Novel idea to add more layer in the XKDG methodology. To achieve 一卦纯清 or Single Pure Gua Formation, there is a tendency that the selected Hexagram, of 5.625 degree, may have changed to another Hexagram based on a more refined subdivision of Yao, within the region of 0.937 degree (speaking about German accuracy here in the context of ancient Chinese art). That is an absolute accuracy given the fact that the rustic handmade LuoPan is quite a primitive tool. No doubt, it is subject of major criticism yet for completeness let's investigates further.
Physical measurement revealed that it is close to the 3rd Yao. Change from the sitting Hex of Eliminating to Marsh. Can this 一卦纯清 or Single Pure Gua Formation?
The original Hex Eliminating denotes cutting off. Five Yang Yao cutting off a single Yin Yao, leaving no room for retreat. The general connotation of this Gua is inauspicious reflecting careless move and ill judgment. Such is the nature of soon to be master FengShui practice located in this alignment which are bound to disputes and disharmony. Whereas, the transformed Hex Marsh is an auspicious one. Such will only be beneficial if one is sincere without ulterior motives. However, would it transform in the first place?
No combination taken place within the transformed Hex itself. Speaking of 一卦纯清 or Single Pure Gua Formation, not so easy as it is...
