Site selection 寻龙点穴 based on SanHe FengShui is not difficult. There are basically 3 important layers to take into considerations such as: -
1. The Larger Environment
2. The Medium External
3. The Small External
Beyond that it is “trade secret” and you ought to pay to learn.
What to look for within each of these layers are best represented by the following mantra: -
1. Water Mouth determine structure.
2. Structure establish Facing.
3. Facing establish Sitting.
Beyond that it is, again, “trade secret” and you ought to pay to learn.
A CASE IN MIND
There is a memorial park up north in Malaysia. It has been established quite sometimes ago about 10 years with many name changes. Google and you will know. As to why the name keeps changing is for me to know for you to find out. One obvious reason may most likely be of commercial reasons. However, as believed, it is likely due to the land formation that is less than ideal.
Observing the “larger environment”, the incoming main source of Qi from the Titiwangsa Range is branched out via a vein from northeast to southwest. This incoming dragon carries 壬寅 which is unfortunately, metal Qi. The “larger environment” water mouth is at the southwest 坤申 that may not gel well with metal frame, thus the site may considered as bad FengShui. A memorial park that is supposed to be long lasting and yet may not conforming to the “larger environment” is not worth.
The original land form has no river crossing the site. It is in fact, boundary between Selambau River and Muda River. A memorial park without a natural river cannot sell. So a man-made river was dug out from the north to the south, thus separating the site into 2 halves – The East River and the West River sides. The way the river is designed does not take into consideration of meandering. A straight river has no affection 情. No affection 無情 is by itself ShaQi 殺氣.
The water mouth flowing to the south was virtually locked. This direction also coincides with the “medium external” water mouth, marked “Y”. Measuring with the LuoPan, the “medium external” water mouth should exit 巽巳 that conform to only metal or wood frame. Yet, the “larger environment” dictates otherwise.
Moreover there are high tension electrical pylons travelling pass the site. These structures are considered as ShaQi or Killing Qi and it affects greatly the auspiciousness of the site. If it is found within the palaces of 3 Auspicious 6 Elegant, the divination for the site is greatly inferior. A good memorial park shall be devoid of these structures.
Neglecting the metal incoming Qi, retrospectively reviewing both “medium external” and “larger environment” the only structure that may fit both profiles is wood. Only wood frame can be employed?
Reviewing the “small external” is even more interesting. Having the site now separated into 2 halves – The East River and the West River sides, any RnD engineer would advise that the way to go about is to have the entire site clustered into 4 sectors, namely A,B,C and D. Now, if you were tasked to select among these clusters, which cluster fetched the best FengShui formation? The answer is within the “small external” ?.
River West has a superior position compared to River East, because River West conform to its overall YinYang compared to River East. This conforming of YinYang is also known as conforming to Pure Yin Pure Yang Principles. Again, evaluating the 3 layers of "Greater Environment", "Medium External" and "Small External", the only compatible structure shall be wood frame. Yet, within "A" and "C", which one has a relatively superior standing?
Having said thus, it is undoubtedly not an "Emperor Producing" quality land form to begin with. If it is not because of the Killing Structures of the Pylons affecting both, River West would have been much superior. Also the River has no affection 無情 is by itself ShaQi 殺氣.
This site has been formerly marketed for ShengJi 生基. For the purpose of ShengJi 生基 or Life Grave, it is totally another cup of tea. Truly there are different types of ShengJi 生基. One is to have immediate effect, while the other has a longer but slower effect. These all has to do with land form.
If you want to learn more about Land Form and SanHe, enroll into our workshop where Students will learn to evaluate the capacity of a site by taking into consideration the macro incoming and outgoing Qi, to establish its Qi maps. The same is applied to the immediate external and follow through towards the compound of the property, so that every layers are consistent to a structure. This is the art of harnessing Qi. The interior of the property is arranged to conform to such structure as to allow Qi to flow unobstructed. The art of harnessing is through the Xue, not one but multiples. SanHe method is employ to where Qi begins.
More importantly, by gaining this skill, one will not be easily conned by unethical FengShui masters with motives to sell burial plots for their sponsors especially the latest fashionable ShengJi 生基.

HOW ABOUT OTHER MEMORIALS?
BLISSFUL DRAGON SPOT IN BM - 17.04.2013
Visited a controversial memorial park in BM. Greeted by their resident FS master, we walk around looking for an auspicious spot. Strangely, it is somewhere hovering at the earth deity temple with plenty of sparrows encircling the bright hall.
Some controversial background surrounding this park is that some DiLi expert from Taiwan came and dotted this spot as a very auspicious site particularly for ShengJi or living tomb. Needless to say, others disagree. One reason for is that the site lack of natural streams. So, an artificial stream was constructed and separating the site into multiple zones. No main static spot was formed. Can one guess which the multi-million zones are?
On Google, one tiny vein is clearly identifiable while the others just continue on. So, technically the dragon is on moving forming the left embrace of the site with a weaker right embrace. Those graves that are closer to this little vein would benefit the most yet their alignments are still crucial. Can this site be used? Yes, just tap the vein.
The water mouth is “locked” artificially in a SanYuan manner. Very similar to the one in Semenyih. All is required is to tap into the current prosperous water star. This sort of formation is nice to show about typical memorial landform. Where is the so called, incoming dragon, water and exiting water mouth.
The resident master is all ear and eye observing us fearing that we will sabotage some auspicious grave there. However, that is not our cup of tea. Just before signing off, there is a point to note on the facing mountain of a “gold ingot”. Can you see one?
GRAVE MATTERS - 28.06.2010
Burial plot selection in well organized memorial parks, these days can be a grave matters where one has plenty of potential killing Qi when it is located by the highways of Malaysia with lots and lots of electrical pylons whereas the others don’t even worth a shit although it has appeared numerous time in TV and a series of chasing the dragon sitcom or something liked this with 2 ladies and a guy chirping their ways insulting the Imperial tombs to be much inferior as compared to their sponsor’s memorial park with a distinctively murky water dragons. I wonder, how good can it be? Whereas the last one, although not perfect, as much of the undulating terrains had been pressed down, it is much better in some ways or another compared to the former.
First the selection team touch based with the one located besides the highways. Everywhere almost flattened, with only the hill slopes reserved for the privileged. Even so, the undeniable land form Sha, liked the pylons are everywhere. Speaking about the real TaiSui Sha, do we need to place PiYao everywhere to appease the TaiSui?
Next, we arrived at the one, so well advertised in the media and endorsed by the one of the academy in town. The sale team brought us to the worst locations with the bright hall facing the alley with a price tag as big as the mammoth. How about the good lots? Well, at the moment the so called good one is not released for sale. Honestly, even the so called good one is also not so good. Look at the so called water dragon in murky formations. The imperial lots are facing the unlocked water mouth. How good can that be? One thing good, there is no pylon to be seen.
Well, the last option is to see the one neighboring park. Upon entry there is a huge dragon sucking the pearl. Is this FengShui or Mc FengShui? You do the calling. After many rounds of turning, we finally arrived at a location with an acceptable bright hall. What is lacking is the crossing of the gap, which has been flattened. So the Qi is going to be leaked. Well, nothing is perfect and it is all heaven’s will. Even within the same location, the plot at a step above which has already been taken, has a better Qi capacity compared to the lower one. Such formation is called white tiger crossing bright hall. Does it means to say the female has more authority?
Burial plot selection in a well organized memorial park is quite a different cup of tea, especially when the terrain has been muddled with the absents of the trail of the veins, disappearing of the natural niche and the constructions of the retaining wall which sometimes make the slope even steeper at the rear. The best thing is do we need a LuoPan for such an exercise? Maybe not. An I-Phone with pre loaded LuoPan is better. Think about it…
MOOLAH OF THE MOOSTI SPOT - 03.11.2008
I find it rather amusing that the art of KanYu is devoid of spiritual practice as claimed by the academy in town, whereas the so called best spot in reserved for the erection of the Earth Guardian spirit pavilion. This spot could be set aside for other millionaires’ or millionaire wannabe’s grave, to tap into the surrounding petal formation. Wouldn’t it be a silly venture to give it to the deity instead of the bones of the mortal if the same logic were to be applied? On another note, is it a spot that has been located in the first place or merely a fabricated spot instead? Good question!
In 2006, I visited the so called spot. The table mountain is rather elongated bun liked shape. What do we called this? Sleeping WuQu? The height is a little too high. The left embrace is called dragon crossing bright hall, longer and extending to the table mountain. The tiger embrace is shorter and lower. Both embraces are high by any standard, however, sentimentally embracing. Water is flowing from the left to the right, quite a miss in a way, not a great water dragon, but a great water lizard instead. Usable, yes I would have thought, but re-engineering required. The parent mountain, very weak. In conclusion, by any natural observation of the landforms, strictly speaking, cannot have formed a spot. Well, nobody said it is ideal, except the academy.
In 2008, I visited the very same spot, now occupy by the Earth Guardian spirit pavilion. I was there under the invitation of the agent, notably sales wasn’t that promising. I wonder why? The entire scene has been re-engineered. The table mountain has been reshaped, a sexier look reflecting JuMen, jade pillow as what they called. The height of the embrace, Table Mountain has been compensated by raising the altar to an “appropriate” level. The tiger embrace has been strengthened with a building. Water dragon has been widen and no longer a lizard looking one, forced to enter into the bright hall from the left embrace. The work of genius is displayed by anchoring a building at the back of the pavilion, reflecting the missing parent mountain. That keeps me occupy for a fact, where is the crossing of the gap, almost unseen or if there is any in the first place? I really can’t tell. The re-engineering effect is neat and I keep wondering at what cost and at what sort of promises that had been made to produce the desired effect for the entire sanctuary? Only time would tell.
Coincidentally, I bump into the so called split dragon rock at the incoming water location. Next, while this blog is penned, I bump into another blog that speaks about the same split rock, meaningful coincident I called. Not quite a good omen. It reflects that the veins had been severed and I wonder which part of it? The site in question or the opposite one. It however did not face in the axis of the opposite site, which is almost flattened and this may mean that the damages are done, beyond cure. The good news is there is another on left intact.
So as I was looking for the moolah from the moosti spot, I really found nothing but a prefabricated one. Yet within a prefabricated one, I found a real moosti laying on the opposite site. At least the moolah has been found, all I need is to get to the moosti. Any hope?
SEMENYIH MEMORIAL - 07.09.2008
Incoming Dragon: 壬寅
Water Mouth: 坤申 / 丁未
SanHe Method Analysis: -
Metal frame Incoming dragon controlling wood frame water gate. Is this an auspicious site? What does this portend? How do one arbitrate the situation? This site had been ear marked as the next sanctuary for managed memorial parks. In the event if the site is auspicious the site would have been lustfully developed since. Why it takes so long even to be noticed or had we missed some thing important?
Which sitting would the grave be located? In the micro context, would one able to locate the spot?
This site has been designed to keep the original contour intact. The lack of a stream is apparent. They practically dug out a man-made stream enlarging the existing earth drains from the plantation. The drawback of the site besides the absent of the stream shall be its location that sit within the main Qi source – Titiwangsa Range. It is said that the dragon has not stop, thus the meridian will not form.
With the stream cutting the site into halves, River North and River South, both sides are designed with graves overlooking the stream.
Suits water exiting from 艮寅 to 丁未.
Conforming to water and wood frames.
Suits water exiting from 坤申 to 癸丑.
Conforming to metal and fire frames.
Such design of Memorial Park has been very instrumental in deploying SanYuan methodology of Ling Zhen Principles. Notwithstanding such, it also conforms to SanHe methodology to the dot.
