72 Mountains and 60 Penetrations七十二穿山六十透地-part 2

As mentioned previously 72 mountains minus the 12 ‘Big Space Peril’ that cannot be utilized to harness kind energies and left with 60 penetrations, nevertheless out of these 60 penetrations (sub-mountains), 12 earthy branches that are ‘miss-match’ should be omitted as well. In order to dictate the kind energies one must apply ‘Kei Mun Tun Kap’ to search for the auspicious as well as the inauspicious energies generated as a result. Those jargons and formula will be introduced later as this method is complicated and cannot be explained in few words, I will write a separate topic on this method in near future. Back to this topic, out of the 48 sub-mountains, only 2 sets of 12 mountains are qualified to be the auspicious dragon energies’ antenna. The 24 sub-mountains are called the 24 Jewels. 

1,   Green Bag Scripture (青囊經)-by Huang Si Kong黃石公

Explain the transformation processes of living beings and things in both philosophical and scientific manner. Such text will help to align your paradigm in a logical thinking mode.

1.       The invincible forces are the forces between heaven (sky) and earth. The Sky represents Yang energy while earth represents Yin energy. The energy form sky subsides while the earth energy rises resulted in intercourse that creates changes. The early days Bagua formation is the result of the interaction between Yin and Yang. The numbers ascribed here are synonymous to married couple with anything that repel is bad and attract is good. For instant the married couple numbers are 1 and 9, 2 and 8, 3 and 7, and 4 and 6. Beside this, the creation couples also serve to ignite kind energy and of course with the right timing are 1 and 6, 2 and 7, 3 and 8, 4 and 9. This Lok Shu magic numbers work wonder and are imbedded with secret codes and information that can explain the formation of universe.  The diagonal and straight sums up to 15 and when we minus the 5 in the center, the sum add up to 10, which is the married couple number. The numbers in term of 5-elements are 1, 6 are water, 2, 7 are fire, 3, 8 are wood, 4, 9 are metal, the position of such numbers dictate what element they belong to.

2.       In searching for the real ‘dragon pressure point’ for graveyard site, the dynamic of a dragon will need to meet with the static of the energy gathering point. This is the interaction of Yin and Yang. Sky () and Earth (), Mountain () and Swamp (), Thunder () and Wind (), Water () and Fire () are the symbol of Bagua that carry loads of information about the universe. This can be explained by the law of opposite attracts, without which things cannot hold well, there is no day and night, big and small, tall and short and contra in life.

3.       Forms and energies with cause and effect. Things are classify in accordance to Yin and Yang and 5-elements. Hard and soft, day and night, heavy and light and etc. Such phenomena none other than the interaction of Yin and Yang as a result. The form will dictate what kind of energy that will permeate and reflect out. This can be explained by the antenna concept in which a protruding tip will receive the cosmic stars energies and pass to surrounding inhabitant. Certain sensitivity requires adsorbing such energies. Such combination will need to satisfy the Yin and Yang concept and anything that violates such law resulted in unwarranted circumstances. In ancient days, such concept will help farmers to plant and harvest their produces.  The process requires accommodative of weather in particular. 

4.       The 5-elements of earth are virtually the 5-stars in the sky. This correlation is the natural law of nature that dictating the form and shape of landforms.  Ancient wisdom had let us know that the Wood Star (木星) has the unique characteristics among others like representing the direction of East and is the spring season energy. The Yinghuo (荧惑) represents summer, fire and the direction of South. The Zeng Star (鎮星) represents earth and the location of center. The Tai Pa Star (太白) is metal and represents the season of autumn or fall. The San Star (辰星) is water and represents winter.  The serial of stars in the sky also represents 5 –elements are the serial of 28-constelation. With 7 each represents by one element. The mountaineers and rivers are the earth energy. The sky and earth energy combining to achieve changes to take place. 

5.       The balance state of 5-elements is also the balance of Yin and Yang, any disturbance in equilibrium state will create undesirable outcome. Sole Yin or sole Yang will not live in harmonious state or they are not mutually exclusive. (孤陰不生, 獨陽不長).  

6.       The 4 direction and 8 Guas carry certain energies and information at different time period. And to live peace fully is to achieve the balance state of 5 elements. 

Summary: The invincible forces are the lively energies between sky and earth, while the forms and shapes determine what kind of element they belong to and any changes in the status quo resulted changes in outcomes. Change is the only constant and is prepared to accept changes in life. 

2.   Green Bag Preface (青囊序)-by Tang era Zeng Qiu Ji唐朝曾求己

The most obvious message in this text is Feng Shui cannot neglect the Yin and Yang concept and male versus female interactions or intercourse. 

The author of such book mentioned that Yang Jun Song perception of Yin and Yang is uniquely different from others. His sole explanation cannot be traced from other books. The sky energy subsides while the earth energy rises and to a point intercourse takes place and result in changes. Crops and produce to be planted in spring while harvesting take place in autumn. 

The invincible forces and energies transformed the universe. The transformation requires stages and processes. The Yang energy subsides and raises in Yin energy or vice versa that dictating the process. Observing such changes require attentive skill. Static and dynamic that contra to each other created changes within. To determine the 4 golden dragons, one must find out the 4 storages real direction (ox, dragon, goat and dog), such storages are the out-flow of water, by determining the outflow we can now trace back the real dragon water inflow or the water source. The critical part of a Yin is Yang and vice versa. Any changes require ‘movement’ such movement will create the motion that leads to changes. The Gua energy that Yin Feng Shui receive is the result of the changes in the time aspect and as well as space interaction. Changes in time period of Yang Feng Shui will determine the kind of energies the inhabitant will receive. Both the hardware (landform) and software (time) needed to stimulate in order for changes to take place. Nevertheless, the energies will lead the changes in form while the landform will lead the changes in energies. This is something for us to ponder upon. 

Changes in the landform, high versus low, incline versus decline and so on can dictate the Yin or Yang of the landform we intend to study. The hard form of dragon as well as the invincible dragon both will help to identify the source of in coming dragon. The source is critical for further identify the quality of the dragon. In recognizing the landforms, the interaction of three water mouths (intersection of river mouths) will help us to identify the real in coming dragon or mountain. Such point is critical for testifying the intercourse of Yin and Yang. 

The observation of dragon should be from opposite angle so that the ‘shape’ and ‘form’ can be detected. For instance the Dragon from the south should be observed from North while the Dragon from East should be observed from the West. 

A dragon can be divided into Yin and Yang and the interaction of Yin and Yang resulted in a formation of a dragon point. This is the typical example in Her Nan Lok Yang town whereby a ravine and river met. One source is from Hua San and the other from Song San. Many saints had therefore built their homes here where the real dragon emerged. After all said and done, once the time aspect is over such place will become less important. 

This lead to the Guo Pur important teaching, the Zhu Que (frontier) is vibrant that causes kind energies, that implying the in coming dragon will permeate to generate beneficial energies at the right time. 

The quick fix for certain solution should be in the proportion of 1 to 2 or 2 to 3. Such rational is the marriage of Yin and Yang that resulted in 3. The creation of universe is said to mimic such principle as well. To use one Yao we must also examine three Yaos, to understand one Gua, examine 3 Guas as well.  Both mountain and water will carry the characteristic of Yin and Yang.  Try this on for size, the mountain is said to be Yin but kind energy is Yang, such marriage resulted in auspicious setting. Water is said to be Yang while unkind energy in water is Yin, therefore the marriage of Yin and Yang would produce desirable outcome. This will lead us to the understanding that good setting will require the right timing to bring out the best kind energies, like wise, the bad setting will be catastrophe only if the timing is bad. One example that during this period 8, the 8, 9 and1 are auspicious and the less are inauspicious.  

The separation of duty is required here with attentive care, where mountain is governed by the mountain rule while water is governed by water rule; nevertheless one similarity in both is the marriages of Yin and Yang. Such intercourse produces offspring or kind energies. This intercourse should be natural and not manmade or interferences.  

The formation of 24 mountains is derived from 12 earthly branches, with 8 stems and 4 Guas. It is also believed that most of the 64 Guas can be traced from these 24 mountains. Nevertheless to fix such 24-mountains require attentive care and rather not easy to fix. 

The 24 mountains will rotate either clockwise and anticlockwise and such combination will resulted 48-setting. The Yang will rotate clockwise (left) while the Yin will rotate anticlockwise (right). Such spinning is creating the 5-elements and thus the Yin and Yang. From the spinning lead to 48 setting, we have derived and come to determine who are grandparents, parents, sons and grandsons! This is none other than the marriages and intercourses that take place as a result. The clockwise and anticlockwise, the up and down, the through and flow of such information resulted intercourse. 

The net Yin and Net yang is not without limitation. Xuan Kong Da Gua will consider both the Yin and Yang as well as to differentiate them. The real Yin and real Yang will meet each other and again such intercourse will create kind energy. The rational here is should the mountain is Yang then the water should be Yin and vice-versa. The interconnectedness of 24 mountains and Gua energies should be in harmonious state and act as one entity. 

24 mountains by itself will carry 5-elements on its own, and the rotation of left and right or clockwise and anticlockwise to determine the orientation of a setting.

The mountain is governed by mountain rule while the water is governed by water rule. If such setting is disorientated, where the mountain is found is the water and vice versa thus such setting violated the natural courses of kind energy generation. 

The incoming dragon or incoming of water flow should be inline with Gua or net situation, any dislocation will result in out or Gua or ‘tarnish’ situation. The intention here is to create a married couple scenario, be it slanted or straight; the result should be in the combination of 10. Such setting would fence off the unwarranted unkind energies. The incoming dragon should be lively and generate kind energy. If the Gua energy is tarnished and unkind energy will be generated. 

The stars in the sky are limitless and complicated to study; nevertheless we should know only one principle that is the creation numbers, 16, 27, 38 and 49. The Xuan Kong theory is the creation numbers that inline with Gua energies to produce desirable outcome. The topographical setting should satisfy the time aspect that related to the stars. Such cosmic reaction of time and space is critical part yet difficult to understand. Gua energy will align the mountain as well as the water mouth to generate kind energy. It is like gooses in a pond that meeting each other happily. 

Mountain implying static while water implying dynamic. Mountain governs health and people while water governs wealth and fortune. The combination of both will dictate the fame and fortune of a person. Kin, Kwan Kan and Shun Guas are imbedded with 4 kind of energies, auspicious, create, drain or inauspicious. The criteria here are to satisfy the right timing at the right place. 

Out of ten tombs that examined nine are broke, the reason is simple, they did not follow the simple rule of incoming water should be auspicious and the out going water should be inauspicious. 

The combined 10 and combined 5 auspicious setting should be followed. The number 4 should meet with only number 1 or 6. Such violation is not good in Feng Shui setting. Apply wrongly the 5-elements orientation would also result in catastrophe.

3.   Green Bag Mystery (青囊奧語)-by Tang era Yang Jun Song 唐楊筠松

Hidden with precious Feng Shui techniques and secrecy. Understand and read in between lines will give you a clue as to apply the Xuan Kong Dai Gua by understanding the techniques of yin and yang interaction.

The mystery of star allocation (挨星) is none other than allocating each star with 5 elements. These nine stars each allotted with 5-elements. Tan, Jue, Lu, Wen, Wu, Po, Pur and Pat each have its own uniqueness and this is also the Lok Shu numbers. From the statement of ‘Kwan Yam Yue Jue Men from the start’ one can find out that as long as we uphold the combined-10 theory, we are able to achieve the desired outcome. The combined-10 theory is important because such intercourse would result in offspring. Sen Gua in Kwan is 2nd period while Kwun Gua in Yam ought to allocate 8th period Jie Gua in Yuet, the 2nd and 8th period now satisfy the combined-10 theory. Such combined-10 resulted Jue Men setting as a result of ‘Kwan Yam Yuet Jue Men from the start” 

‘Kap Kwai San (monkey) Tan one way street’ is explained as such: The Lei Gua in 1st period of Kap will need to match with 9th period Kwai of Yik Gua, Monkey is the 9th period of Wei Jie Gua, this will lead to Tan Lang setting.  

Another simple explanation is that Kwan, Yam and Yuet are allotted as Jue Men Star (star 2) with facing Kan, Peng and San that allotted Po Jung (star 7), Shun, Shun and Boar are Wu Ju (star 6) while Kin, Dog and Snake are Tan Lang (Star 1), that left with Kap, Kwai and Monkey are Tan Lan (Star 1) then Kang, Rat and Tiger should be Wu Ju (Star 6). 

The Left rotation of Rat and Kwai will end up at Boar and Yam, while the right rotation of Horse and Ding will end up at Snake and Peng. Such phenomenon is none other than the concept of Yang subsides while Yin rises and vice versa.  This is implying that each mountain in the 24 mountains carries both Yin and Yang values. 

The intercourse of Yin and Yang at the right time is the ultimate desired outcome of Xuan Kong Da Gua. To differentiate the Yin and Yang or husband and wife is utmost critical and yet difficult task. It is believed that one should seek the Yin and Yang in the Guas rather than in the 24 mountains. 

Mountain is hard while water is soft. Mountain and water both carry different Yin and Yang and thus different Gua energy. Both static and dynamic created changes and outcomes. As such the kind and unkind energies are dictated by the Xuan Kong effect.  

Understand Xuan Kong in depth and breathe by utilizing the 9-stars and 5-elements will be sufficient and will not require the knowledge of Stem adoption theory. 

To understand fully the 24-mountains will lead to emerge of treasure or valuable outcomes, and at the same token there is always 2-sides of a coin; in which such information always lead us to catastrophic events. This is also the flying star method of deriving a setting. In which Yang might replaced Yin and vice-versa. In flying star setting, the time aspect is critical in determining the kind or unkind setting of a direction. The same setting is auspicious in certain of period and might just be inauspicious in another period. 

In searching for a real golden dragon, a skilled master will require observing, analyzing and identifying weather the dragon is still moving or lively, and such dragon will then require the intercourse of time aspect. The combustion of such couple with the right 5 elements will result in desired outcome. The key point here is the dragon must be alive. 

This will lead us to identify the trail of a dragon movement. The ancient saying when the dragon moves so does the energy. When the dragon halts do does the energy.  Certain dragon will need the ‘stoppage’ or ‘barricade’ to halt; some dragons require water to halt its energies. 

A bright hall or Ming Tang that is slanted or elevated is not a good one. This is in line with the incoming energy that should be directly channel to bright hall. The alignment of tomb with the incoming dragon is critical to determine the fame and fortune of its next generation.  This is to point out that both the incoming dragon as well as the bright hall is imperative criteria for selecting a tomb site. 

The channel of energy via dragon body should not be suppressed by its surrounding, In other words, the up tip or down tip of a dragon should not be too close to a tomb site.  

Four ‘gods’ in a cross line. Such metaphor is to describe a good site should have a balance of left (Green dragon), right (White Tiger), front (Zhu Que) and back (Xuan Mu). If these four were to form a cross, then such site is said to be a perfect one. Such cross is the intercourse of Yin and Yang point. 

This is again to reinforce the importance of the four ‘gods’ that must in proper alignment in order to generate kind setting. 

The eight Guas water mouth are important, as they will dictate the inflow of kind or unkind energies. This will require the effort of time aspect in which each must satisfy the combined-10 theory.  

The incoming of water need attentive care. In simplicity, the incoming water direction should be auspicious while the outgoing water mouth should be inauspicious.  It is said that the incoming and outgoing of water can be tailor made in accordance to our need. In other words, to harness to good one and evade the bad one. 

We have come to a point of a flat land; a flat land will require us to use the same logic. Nevertheless we will need certain rational and flexibility to identity a good site.   

The beauty of topography alone is not enough; the inner beauty should be considered as well. The reason is simple that the combination of both will generate desirable outcome or offspring. The inner beauty here is the time aspect. 

To identify or fixing the direction, one must know the point of Yin and Yang. The combined-10 theory, the right Yin and Yang, the right incoming and outgoing water are the essential criteria in determine the tomb direction. 

In searching for the essence of a right place for a site, the quality or the soil will look right a spiral of Yin and Yang diagram with Chinese Character of 8 both symmetrical to each other (The Chinese word of eight looks like this). It is not an easy task to identify such quality. 

The shapes of 5-stars should not be neglected as they carry significant meaning in term of 5-elements. Fire shape is sharp, earth shape is square, metal shape is round, and wood shape is straight while the water is a wave like. To analyze shapes and sizes, the important thing is without a dent, collapse like, or significant development of mountain. 

The high versus low of an area is critically important affecting the site selection process. The frontier of a site also serves as an important element in the process. The site is either elevated or slanted, far versus near, with or without a mountain, hill and etc. 

To generate kind energy we must fulfill the basic principle, that is at the right time, any disorientation might result in otherwise intended outcome. The direction must be auspicious. Understanding the interaction of 5 elements in term of creation, destruction, and drainage is imperative in searching for a right site. 

Some incidences whereby ‘bones’ of a dragon (any solid rocks that protruding out) could be good or bad depending on the appearances. If such rocks are rough and spiky then they will bring unkind energies, if such rocks’ surfaces are flat without sharp edges than these rocks are good rocks that bring good fortune. Both left and right good rocks will bring ‘status’ energy to the site. 

To understand that any incoming water should be auspicious and any outgoing water should be inauspicious. It is to recommend that at the frontier, one should place water for generating kind energies, even if the setting is inauspicious, the water will serve to ignite the kind energies, beside, water in front will help us to un-trapped or synergies the ‘trapped’ energies. 

Xuan Kong 5-elements and the 24-mountians 5 elements are not the same no matter how you turn the table upside down. The 1, 6-water, 2, 7-fire, 3, 8-wood, 4, 9-metal, early days Bagua 5-elements are the ultimate power of Feng Shui; such power is to differentiate the 24-mountain original 5-elements and the Bagua. Every year or every twenty-years, a particular star will be in command and such star is located in the middle of Lok Shu square, this is termed as Central Heart of the Commanding Period (天心正運). Nonetheless, the interchangeable information of both early and later days Bagua is the method that most masters hard up on mastering. 

One Clear Gua energy is none other than to select the right site at the right direction and at the right time. To satisfy this we must know the four-criteria that are the Dragon, Mountain Water and Direction. Both 4 must have the right Guas energies to bring out the best of a tomb site. Dragon must be energetic and lively, mountain should provide a good support, and water and direction should be inflow from the auspicious setting. 

To find out the real dragon point is not easy task let alone to identify a quality one. Searching for such site require the right Yin and Yang and the Bagua 5 elements that inline with the right period of time. 

Summary: To identify the real dragon, first we must determine if such dragon is moving or static, the way the dragon moves or halts will serve as an indicator to dictate the ultimate shapes and sizes, the shapes and sizes in form of appearance and 5-element will determine the kind of energies to be radiated. We would than differentiate the Yin and Yang and 5 elements of such forms. Combinations of both resulted the intercourse of Yin and Yang that might bring the offspring to blossom. That is still not enough; we still need to identify the Gua energies and the time factor. If all is well, then the right spot emerge. 

4.     Heavenly Jade Scripture (天玉經)- by Tang era Yang Jun Song (唐楊筠松)   

A more refined version in descriptive as well as rhyme format to explain his rational in certain protocol but rather vague. This can be explained by the fact that he would not want his techniques to be in the hand of the bad guys that might use such techniques to do bad things that harm society and the other reason being that such techniques were exclusively for the imperial and common person can not enjoy such privileges. 

Heavenly Jade Scripture (天玉经) -Upper Volume

‘Heaven with 5-elements while Jade with 5 virtues that is the name given to this scripture.’

There are many versions in interpreting this ancient text and many schools of thought cannot seem to be agreed on each other’s interpretation. Let us examine such text in a much broader context and mind you there is no right or wrong only sufficient rational given in terms of era of such text is written and period of such text is interpreted.

Upper Volume 

The first line in Heavenly Jade Scripture is implying that changes in the Guas period is the movements of certain Yao. For example the Pure Gua is governed by period 1, while the changes in first Yao is period 8, changes in the 2nd Yao is period 4, changes in 3rd Yao is period 9, changes in 4th Yao is the period 2, changes in the 5th Yao is the period 6 changes in the 6th Yao is the period 3 and changes in the 7th Yao is the period 7. This is in line with the context of 1 (odd) and 2 (even). The movement of odd Yaos, 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th resulted in period 8, 9, 6 and 7 while the movement of even Yaos, 0, 2nd, 4th, and 6th resulted in period 1, 4, 2, and 3. 

Western Jiang Gua governs the period 2, 3 and 4 while Eastern Jiang Gua governs the period 6, 7 and 8. The period 2, 3 and 4 parent is 9 while the period 6, 7 and 8 is 1. In the period 2, 3 and 4 the direction of water should be 6, 7 and 8 while in the period 6, 7 and 8, the other wise is true where the water should be in the period of 2, 3 and 4. Same Gua governs both Southern and Northern main Pure Gua, which is the first period Gua.

Clockwise Offspring Guas (順子卦)-Kwai/Ding/Yuet/San/Boar/Snake/Monkey/Tiger癸丁乙辛, 亥已申寅

Anticlockwise Offspring Guas (逆子卦)-Yam/Peng/Ox/Goat/Kap/Kang/Dragon/God壬丙丑未, 甲庚辰戌 

The 24 mountains is governed by the 24 dragons and dictated by the above Heavenly Dragon, Human Dragon and Earth Dragon. This highly precious technique is not advisable to leave on the hand of irresponsible masters. To fully master the above parent, anticlockwise offspring and clockwise offspring Guas will pave the way to prosperity. 

The Heavenly Gua governs the mountain while the Earthly Gua governs the water. Knowing the matching of mountain and water Guas is the essential criteria for achieving ultimate outcome. This is important to know that ‘Zhong Gua’ is a stake of six Yaos, with the upper three is Heavenly Gua while the lower three is the Earthly Gua. It is also said that the upper Gua represents the Eastern Guas while the lower Gua represents the Western Guas. One represents odd and Yang and also the upper Gua, while two represents even and Yin and also the lower Gua. 

Both Guas and Yaos will have their own parents and offspring. To identify the parent Gua or parent Yao is critical for separation of Yin and Yang, both mountain and water should have separation of duties, any wrong combination would result in unwarranted energy. Differentiate the Parent Gua or Parent Yao is to ensure the intercourse to take place properly. The next step should identify the replacement Gua should there be one. The left and right replacement should have different impact and therefore one should analyze and judge properly. 

The euphoria situation requires the direction inside the Gua area, anything that outside of Gua area in not ideal. For instance Yam Rat and Kwai, if the Gua line is between Rat and Kwai it is said to be in the Gua area if the Gua line is between Rat and Yam, this is considered to be out of Gua area. The rational of this is simple, as long as it satisfies the combined 10 or 15-theory, if it is within the Gua area. Yam is 3 Rat is 9; the combined does not match the theory. While Rat is 9 and Kwai is 6, combined equal to 15 that matches the theory. With the inner Gua energy couple with the topography water direction that is inline; this setting provides the opportunity to achieve fame and fortune.  To neglect and ignore the point of out of Gua energy is not wise thing to do. Both criteria must be in place in achieving desirable outcome. 

This come to a point we must review our understanding on the combined –10 theory, which is illustrated above, and the creation numbers of 16, 27, 38 and 49. Beside the combined-10 theory anything that is in creation number would be ideal to achieve the desirable outcome. For instance the Rat is 9 while the goat is 4 and such the creation number of 49 emerges. To identify the parent is essentially the source of this point here. Any anticlockwise movement should also refer back to parent, because ultimately parent provides the protection to the offspring. Both mountain and water will also go through clockwise and anticlockwise setting with the intercourse of Yin and Yang. Yin and Yang will diverge into separate routes and the 12 Yin and Yang could be located in the 24 mountains and nevertheless the Parent Gua is important and serves as engine to the setting. 

The secret of the Xuan Kong is none other than eat, sleep and even dine with Yin and Yang, knowing the Yin and Yang upside down, knowing the Yin and Yang inside out!! This is to reinforce the importance of Yin and Yang and once the intercourse take place, the embryo would be conceived and offspring would be delivered.  The mismatch of Gua and Yin and Yang would produce undesirable outcome. 

3-Yang is described as the beginning of a blossom season as well as the full Yang in a Gua but it is only half of a ‘Zhong Gua’ that is also implying the intercourse of Yin and Yang. 3-Yang means auspicious while 6-beauty means the six offspring of Guas with two spirits. This is a desirable end result that the water at the front or bright hall should be large enough to harness the kind energy; the three-water mouth should be auspicious with the spirits of the 6-beauty. This is none other than the combination of the topography with the time aspect that can be traced from the Guas energy. It is also serving as reminder that Parent Guas are important while the offspring Guas are secondary. 

The importance of the arrival of water created wealth and thus status. The meeting of water points normally resulted in commercial activities and busy streets. As such, affluent, politicians as well as scholars will gather here.  It is also not surprising genius can be found here both school smart and street-smart kids.  The vicinity topographical should be considered as well. If the water mouth meets with a ‘Guidance’ mountain that shaped like a ‘stamp’, than the place will breed famous and prominent leaders.   Should the water from the site created dripping sound and both left and right sides protect the area nicely, than this place should be famous for many reasons. 

This is again to reinforce the importance of both time and space aspects.  The combination of water and mountain, time and space require attentive care. Either one out of time or place will nullify the qualification as a good setting. The time aspect in regards to the three cycles of the dragon point takes the parent Guas into consideration. Differentiate the Yin and Yang point in relation to water mouth both incoming and outgoing. The dragon requires turning back as to divert its energy back to the site. 

Identify the 6-Yaos of a ‘Zhong Gua’ to determine the right dragon of the 3 (Heaven, Human and Earth dragons). The incoming dragon should match the incoming water i.e. 1 and 6, 2 and 7, 3 and 8 and 4 and 9 (creation numbers). The four main Guas use the stems to match while the four corner Guas use the earthy branches to match. If the out-going water out of Gua then catastrophic event will occur. That is why the emphasis of in-the-Gua-area is utmost important beside the right topography. 

The dragon and mountain should in the creation number i.e. 1 and 6, 2 and 7, 3 and 8, 4 and 9, while the mountain and direction should be in the combine-10 or married couple numbers 1 and 9, 2 and 8, 3 and 7, and 4 and 6.  Knowing the creation and married couple’s numbers as well as identifying the entire Yin and Yang is critical. 

The incoming dragon and mountain should be in the ideal locale as mentioned above. Again this is to reinforce the critical point of the sit and face scenario. The Sit (mountain) should be static, yin, quiet, without strong wind, high to name a few while the Face (incoming water) should be dynamic, yang and low to name a few. The Yin and Yang should be separated for different reasons. If the direction and mountain is sick (out of Gua) and it is obviously not suitable to use. The source of water direction should be inline with the direction of the site. It is also worth to point out that the method of identifying the actual or precise direction of all the four main criteria is critical because of the details degree, as fine as approximately 1 degree. Again the inner Gua should be in the creation or married couple numbers and anything that is not match (out of Gua) would be detrimental.  

The emphasis here is the mountain (sit) should be higher than the direction (face), but should the mountain contains water, this will nullify the qualification of a good setting even with only little water. This is the basic criterion to study the mountain. It is a different situation with the direction, the direction should have water but how big or small area is not the most important thing to consider, nevertheless should the direction have a small mountain, this will not nullify the qualification of a good setting. This is logic and base on the rational that the totality of the site should be analyzed rather than go by the book. 

We come to a point that we should re-examine the stars-allocation and the 5 elements. The interaction of the stars for the four criterions should be in creation, breed and not destruct or drain. Identifying the parent Guas, the offspring Guas and their Yin and Yang, as well as the interaction of creation or destruction among them. For instance the incoming dragon could be from many facets, identifying the Gua of the incoming dragon should not lead to the same level of parents Gua, it should be from parents Gua to offspring Guas. And with this we must satisfy the creation rather than the destruction of the stars interaction in terms of 5-elements. The next critical point to notice is the same period Guas, which is why the ancient text mentioned ‘it should be the same siblings’. This is to divert the same period (time aspect) energy into consolidated one.  This is the ultimate for achieving the One-Pure-Gua-Energy setting.  This is imminent for 64 Guas practitioners. 

24-mountains contain 2 ways, one is yin and one is yang.  The upper period and the lower period both move opposite ways. Should the Gua energy is mixed (bad) meaning that the right period but not the right Gua or wrong yin and yang, the pure water element (frontier) will help to alleviate the bad energies.  The frontier will dictate which son or daughter of the family prospers, broke or mediocre. The left side affects the number 1, 4th and 7th family members, while the direct front affects the 2nd, 5th and 8th members and right side affects the 3rd, 6th and 9th members.  

Dragon, Direction and Water must not out of Guas; it is like a connected pearl. The movement of mountain ends up in many different shapes, sizes and forms. Therefore the mountain and dragon both have its own Gua energy. The relation of these two is tightly connected to each other. To identify the movement of the dragon either static or dynamic, to ensure the direction and the water mouth would harness the dragon energy by way of funneling through the mountain to the water direction with the right Gua energy.  The 5-elements of dragon, mountain and water should be in cohesive manner to achieve desired outcome.  

The way to prosperity is none other than the right combination of dragon, mountain, water and direction with the right Gua energy, right yin and yang or the intercourse with right 5-element in creation cycle that provide a platform to ignite the right kind of energy to the site. The rear should have mountain to support the front should have water for harness; this is the simple rule of an auspicious site. Adhering to the creation and married couple numbers and the right yin and yang should be able to provide a good setting for generations. 

The main focal point here is to place greater emphasis on Gua rather than Yao and to place even more emphasis on the parent Gua as oppose to the offspring Guas. This is where the parent Gua provides the right dragon to funnel the kind energy. 24-mountains provide the path to prosperity as well as status in the community. Both the yin and yang of the 24-mountains serves different routes and therefore searching for the right route is imperative. The right parent Gua might lead you to Chang An (where most successful politician will become ministers of the cabinet) but with only the right offspring Guas you might settle for wealth with no fame. 

The enormous right kind of energy ought to be from parent Guas, nevertheless the left and right offspring Guas combining effort should also take into consideration due to the uneven topographical nature. If the combination of the Guas energy is contaminated or impure, than this should not be consider as good site. Again the right mountain should be at rear and the right water should be in front.  Each Gua is divided into first, middle and third tier and the middle tier represents the second son or second daughter of the family. 

The right mountain energy is alive and moves clockwise while the dead energy is reverse, but the right kind of energy of water is ‘dead’ water and the ‘unkind energy’ is lively water. Mind you that different Gua at different time should affect different family members. 

The upper volume places great emphasis on the parent Guas and 3-General Guas, the three general Guas are the Eastern, Western and Southern/Northern Guas with each has its own parent Guas. To achieve the desirable outcome for a good setting or fame and fortune we should examine the parent Guas properly that must be inline with the both time and space aspects. The Dragon, Mountain, Direction and Water must be in right Yin and Yang, right intercourse, right creation and married couple numbers. That is dictum in Feng Shui!!
