diffrent school of feng shui: Chinese - Japanese - Malay  



There are numerous schools of feng shui which deal only with landscapes, directions and locations.  The San Yuan school happens to be the only school which includes the time dimension when assessing the feng shui. This adds a three-dimensional effect and  gives it depth thus making the school superior to the others.  The school's insistence on the time factor means that it places a great importance on the changing forces of different periods, thereby incorporating the astrological aspects into it which allows a more accurate and minute prediction of the feng shui effects. As good and bad times do not last forever but change with time it gives us
