Heaven Jade Classics remained one of the most confused text of FengShui of all times. Yet it is one of the most important text believed to have contained the secret applications of YangGong FengShui. It is taken as the text book for both SanHe and SanYuan schools. As time passed, it did not escape the onslaught of corruptions with many texts added by later scholars to best suit its needs. As a result it is so corrupted that rendered it useless without the key guidance of genuine lineage holder. This is an attempt to discern two versions of the text, one being corrected by LiSanSu – grandmaster of the YangGong lineage and the version found in Earth Studies Discern Truth annotated by JiangDaHong – grandmaster of the XuanKong lineage. The text is sub-divided into 3 sections called, upper-middle-lower inner transmissions but it is more useful to group them into sub topics instead.
The YangGong lineage group the 1st part as 72 Dragons Leaning Stars due to the fact it is an instruction to the school to use the 72 Dragons Ring for determining the FengShui formation of the entire area.
