I wish to begin by expressing my heartfelt
gratitude to my late Master, the Reverend Sui Beng, for
bequeathing to me his profound knowledge of San Yuan Feng Shui;
and to the late Grandmaster T’an Yang Wu for his teachings as
recorded in the last two copies of his invaluable publication,
‘T’an’s San Yuan Xuan Kong Feng Shui’.
Not forgetting the late Master Yen Pen with his three precious
‘Theory and Case Studies on Yin and Yang Feng Shui’.
Following in their footsteps, I believe it is my responsibility
in turn to pass down the accumulated knowledge on San Yuan Feng
Shui, as its loss will be a sacrilege to mankind.
Throughout my years of teaching, I have passed this knowledge of
San Yuan Feng Shui to over a thousand students. Besides
benefiting themselves, some have gone on to benefit others in
teaching and consultation work. Nevertheless, I feel my method
of teaching is slow and restricted to a limited circle, mostly
people educated in Chinese.
Due to the tight schedule of my teaching and consultation work,
I have been unable to teach more advance subjects. To overcome
these shortcomings, I have now teamed up with some of my
ex-students, who are professionals in their own fields, to
establish the Central Academy of Feng Shui (CAFS),
in order to make possible the spreading of this beneficial
knowledge to the world at a much faster pace.
Students who have attended courses at the CAFS and have passed
certain levels will be able to ‘read’ the Feng Shui of houses.
They will be able to comment or give ‘specific’ advice,
indicating for instance, the person(s) affected in that
household, the likely part of the body affected, the probable
month of the occurrence and etc.
This may sound strange or unbelievable, but if the theory and
its practical applications are understood,
‘everything in this
universe seems calculable, depending on one’s knowledge and
An example of this statement is that ancient people did not
believe in the existence of germs in the environment as they
could not see them with their naked eyes, until science came
along and proved it with the ‘magical’ microscope. With the CAFS,
a Research Section has been set up, which I believe will one day
also substantiate and provide creditability to the tenets of San
Yuan Feng Shui with another ‘magical’ microscope.
Many people are ignorant of the importance of our surroundings
with respect to our well-being. They do not realize that our
breathing, continuous throughout the 24 hours of a day, is
keeping us alive. What more then do they know about the
life-long interaction of our body with the energy of our
environment. When we ponder over this, we begin to be amazed at
the wonders of nature.
Why does a slight change in climatic conditions increase the
number of sick people? The answer has to do with our body’s
interaction with the energy of the environment and it is this
‘energy’, also known as ‘Qi’ (Chi) in Chinese, to which Feng
Shui is linked. This energy permeates the air as well as the
earth of our world, similar perhaps to electromagnetic waves. No
magic, no superstition and no religion! This energy or Qi as we
call it, affects all living things, and mankind of all races and
religions cannot live without its omnipotent influence.
In Feng Shui, Qi is categorized into Heaven’s Qi, Earth’s
(Environmental) Qi and Man’s Qi. Understanding the importance of
Qi in Feng Shui enables us to concentrate on major issues rather
that on irrelevant remedies. For instance, the placing of an
octagonal (Ba Gua) mirror at the front door of a house will not
be able to counter Nature’s mighty Qi. To hope that this puny
mirror will improve a house’s Feng Shui, reveals a lack of
understanding of the colossal power of the Nature’s Qi or its
To create a situation, a combination or ‘synergy’ of different
Qi is required to occur together. This interaction of two or
more different Qi occurring together produces an effect. A
single Qi by itself remains dormant. As an analogy, water is
produced from the synergistic action of hydrogen and oxygen
atoms, which on their own do no result in any reaction.
In conclusion, I would advise that this opportunity to learn the
invaluable knowledge of San Yuan Feng Shui should not be missed,
as it will bring a lifetime of benefit. Together we can enrich
the world and the coming generations.
