Oh my God!
Flying Star is at the bottom of the “food chain”! Joke aside; let us contemplate a little…
During the Big Sister era, 8 Mansions was the known basic of the basic FengShui taught in kindergarten. In those days, it was the easiest method. So simple that practitioners graduated to advice couples of different Gua to sleep separately. 8 Mansions were actually at the bottom of the “food chain”.
Not satisfied, they opted to primary level – Flying Star. Those days, Hoo-Ha of period 8 was as staggering as the Y2K. Some Chinese literati grandmasters started off very much earlier in the 70’s HongKong where huge classes were organized.
Period 8 passed by and NOTHING happened. So, FlyingStar must have been a flaw! They enrolled into LiuFa. Tan’s School is not the one and only. Read our FengShui history. LiuFa is still out of bound reserved to the elitist Daoist cult.
Then, some opted to do “A” level instead. Entry into University of FengShui takes up 2 routes, Pre-U Matriculation - XKDG and “A” level - SanYuan LongMen BaJu LMBDJ. Surprising, it had never crossed their mind is that - XKDG is actually kindergarten stuff - the so called 8 Mansions!
SanYuan is NOT XuanKong. XuanKong is only a very small subset, thus it is the most confused system among the arts of SanYuan. Cloaked in secrecy, a complete system must contain prediction, application and activation. Strangely, XuanKong that we knew of today, is almost a standalone system with different and conflicting fundamentals.
SanYuan is the continuation of SanHe. The most valuable part of SanYuan is in its application of water method.
On and off there will be mysterious standalone method in the market. While XieZi is almost forgotten, another emerged in the light of the revival of LianShan GuiChang Gua 连山归藏卦. Can we call it by another name such as SanYuan DaGua?
