Truth and Fact: History of two Famous Feng Shui book 三元地理玄空路透 / 实验
三元地理玄空路透 (San Yuan Di Li Lu Tou) and 三元地理玄空实验 (San Yuan Di Li Shi Yan) are two well known Feng Shui text studied by many of today’s Feng Shui practitioners & masters. These two classic texts document many undisclosed theories, practical research & analysis of the Yang (living) and Ying (tomb) Feng Shui.
三元地理玄空路透 (San Yuan Di Li Lu Tou) was first published in 1922 and 三元地理玄空实验 (San Yuan Di Li Shi Yan) followed subsequently. Unfortunately, during the Japanese occupation of China and subsequent communist takeover, all the books were burned and destroyed with the exception of one copy each of the two books survived (safe-kept by Master Tang Yang Wu). To avoid the lost of the great art of Feng Shui, Master Tan Yang Wu passes these two one-and-only copies to Master Sui Beng who later came to Malaya and Singapore and by chance of fate, they were handed down to Master Francis Leyau (the only surviving direct lineage master from the Tan Sui Beng line).
Till then, the two books were never republished. Undertaking the task of safekeeping the two books, Master Leyau shared the exact same belief as late Master Tan Yang Wu. He doesn’t want this true art of Feng Shui to be lost. In early 1990s, these two original one-and-only copies were sent to Wan Li Bookstore in Singapore. The bookstore owner took the books to Taiwan for republishing; Master Leyau claims not credit for the republishing. 4 years later after the books were published, the Originals were handed back to Master Leyau to be once again safe-keep.
We hereby thank Grandmaster Francis Leyau for his generosity of spirit in sharing this great art of Feng Shui that was almost lost. If not for the republishing, the true art of San Yuan Xuan Kong Feng Shui of today will never be complete.
The books became one of todays most sought after Feng Shui texts. Many look into unlocking the key behind these two classic manuscripts to level up their skills and knowledge in San Yuan Feng Shui (e.g. Flying Star, Xuam Kong Da Gua etc) and. through the years; many claimed that they have grasped the true essence of the texts. In theory yes, the texts may look simple but not to forget, the Chinese way of writing always hold multiple and hidden meaning typically with the ancient Chinese scripts. The person who understands best the true meaning and principle behind these two Feng Shui manuscripts are probably still the Masters of this lineage.
Truth and Fact:
About 70% of todays World-renowned Feng Shui Masters and Practitioners graduated from the Central Academy of Feng Shui (CAFS).
Over the last 30 years, Grandmaster Francis Leyau has trained thousands of students from all walks of life including professionals. Among his students, some have become masters themselves while some others have become practitioners and consultants.
Most students trained under him are in fact not beginner. Prior to taking the mastery courses, they have already studied Feng Shui elsewhere.
Why do they choose to join Grandmaster Leyau and his Mastery schools?
From common feedback, most actually did further self-study and research on Feng Shui practices and found CAFS (Malaysia) and CFSM (Singapore) to be able to provide them with the correct path of Feng Shui learning.
A week ago I did an audit on a terrace house. I noticed that the house main door is directly facing a T-junction. Cars will be travelling towards the direction of the main door before making a turn. After taking the house direction and as usual I would fly my stars manually on a piece of paper as I don’t depend on any PDA or books to check on, reason by flying manually you could understand the stars well. I congratulate the owner for having a good house feng shui. He was surprised to hear that. And I ask him why? He told me that he had read on books and articles saying that a house fendshui was deemed to be bad just by having a main door directly facing the main road and what I just told him was the opposite. He was just concern about the junction and that was why he engaged my service. He admitted since he has been staying here for the past 10 years have enjoyed a blissful life. His wife who was working as an officer in the government sector have 4 promotions for the past 10yrs and he have been earning a reasonable income from his business venture too. Son is intelligent and already a graduate and getting marry this year. All his family members enjoying good health. I told him not to worry about the junction, as the junction actually help him a lot and base on the past family history it definitely tally with the good house fengshui. He was pleased to hear that.
Now why the house enjoyed good fengshui when the door is facing the junction. To be frank I only apply the very basic foundation of Xuan Kong Flying Star(XKFS) , I did not even use my Xuan Kong Da Gua Feng Shui application on this project at all. From the door I am certain that it will bring abundance of wealth and promotion to the house. What I did next is just to fine tune the house using XKFS method. I wish to thanks my Master Francis Leyau for his kind teaching that enable me to have a great understanding of XKFS.
I later check on the date he shift into his house from our Xuan Kong Da Gua Date Selection method. He actually moved in on a very auspicious date. He revealed he did not consult any fengshui master for the date of moving in at all. Was this his Good life Destiny? May heaven bless this family.
Note: This is a special case only. Do not select a house facing an oncoming traffic without proper advice from a Feng Shui Master.
Two houses have the exact same Facing Direction and same Structure. Feng Shui reading for the both is good in Period 8. Anyone who stays in this house will enjoy good fortune and prosperous luck.
The owners are however advised by their respective Feng Shui master to move in at a very different timing and season.
House A: Move-in Date & Time selected in the Spring Season (Feb to Apr) 2009
Effect After they’d moved in:
- Great destructive influence from financial loss, sickness and mishaps.
- Their younger daughter was injured in a road accident.
- The lady owner (a single mother in her mid 40s) was retrenched due to corporate downsizing process.
- The elder son began to suffer from poor health.

House B: Move-in Date & Time selected in the Autumn Season (Aug to Oct) 2009
Effect After they’d moved in:
- The house owner strike in buying 4D.
- Business started growing immediately after shifted into the house.
- Wife had a huge promotion at work.
- Their elder daughter got her first job after graduating from college.
How can the result be so different?
- Is it because different people have different luck?
- Result is different depending on individual?
- Or is it that one has done something wrong his / her previous life?
Answer & Fact: Difference in the time-factor
(Good and Bad Move-in date)
Method of Date Selection:
House A: - Other date selection method
House B: - Traditional XKDG Date selection
P/s: Genuine case encountered 2 neighboring house at Bishan district
In order to be an accomplished Feng Shui practitioner, you must have good knowledge in Date Selection
Many Feng Shui practitioners know how to read Feng Shui, do audits, offer changes, but somehow they may not get the desired results after the changes are made. This is due to the incompatible method of Date Selection applied. In Xuan Kong Feng Shui, one must use the Xuan Kong Da Gua Date Selection method to obtain the desired results.
Do You Know?
Do you know that Moving Into a New House on the Wrong Date will affect a house Feng Shui? The bad effect will stayed with you until the day you shifted out.

A good Feng Shui Master knows the importance of a luopan; he only depends on the luopan to take a house direction. Can it be so easily for an actual house direction to be detected, just as the way the house meant to be?
Can a practitioner be able to correctly utilize the 天池tian chi(compass needle) on a luopan? Can the 天池tian chi(compass needle) react correctly to the surrounding, or is it influence by the way you interact with it, or merely we depend on location, timing or heaven will to get the reading? Can this be the 天tian (heaven) 地di (earth) 人ren (human) way? How true does a practitioner knows about the 天tian (heaven) 地di (earth) 人ren (human) way?
The only partial lunar eclipse of 2010 and is happening on Saturday 26 June 2010! You will get to see half of the Moon gradually disappearing as it is covered by the Earth’s shadow.
There is a solar eclipse when the moon blocks the sun from the Earth. A lunar eclipse is when the earth blocks the sun from the moon.
In the study of Feng shui does this play an important role? If the answer is yes, then does it signify any special moment for a fengshui master to conduct any special activity? Maybe only we know, but what about the others?

Erecting The Headstone with Grandmaster Francis Leyau
Location: Memorial Park
Sunday 29th August 2004, 7am – 9am
Joss sticks and offerings to the “guardian” of this gravesite. A gravesite with good Feng Shui is regarded as “Treasure” and as many legends, sites containing treasure are always protected by guardians. Prayers of “asking the guardian to allow erection of headstone” are made before the process starts. On the left is the plate filled with uncooked rice on which the Luo Pan (feng shui compass) will be placed.
Close-up plate filled with rice on which the Feng Shui Master will place the Luo Pan during the proceedings. A Chinese “Red Packet” is put on top of the rice. It is forbidden to place the Luo Pan directly on the ground.
The place of uncooked rice with Luo Pan placed on top. The Luo Pan is placed in such a way that the needle points to the exact position where the headstone is intended to face.
When the Feng Shui master places his Luo Pan ike this for the first time, it is mandatory that the surrounding people remain silent.
The yellow paper rolled around some joss sticks and placed under the pineapple is the offering for the “marking” of the line of headstone.
At the auspicious time, the Feng Shui Master (Grandmaster Francis Leyau in Blue) will give the signal for the worker to erect the Headstone.
Once the Headstone is in position, the Feng Shui Master will check its alignment with his Luo Pan.
The headstone is adjusted accordingly to the master’s instructions. This process of adjustment and re-measuring continue until the master is satisfied with the alignment.
The Feng Shui Master will take his Luo Pan reading from several points on the headstone to ensure that the alignment is absolutely correct.
A little hole is built behind the headstone which will then filled with small quantity of earth from the grave and some pebbles. The hole is known as the “Throat of the Dragon” and serve as the connection between the headstone and the grave. The “Qi” from the grave is transmitted to the headstone through this hole…

With its origin in China, and developing over 2,000 years as a system on how to survive, excel and live in harmony with nature, the Chinese has practiced Feng Shui for thousands of years. It started during the Han Dynasty (206BC – 220AD) as Chinese Philosophy about the relationship between humans and their environment; about how everything is connected and affects our well-being. Based on the Laws of Nature, its theories offer us a way of understanding why certain things occur and how to create a comfortable environment that lets us live and work efficiently and progressively.
The word ‘Feng Shui’ derived during the reign of Jin Dynasty (265 – 420AD) when Guo Pu, the author of the book Zhang Jing (Study of Burial Ground) first used it. In the book he says, “The travel of Qi is conducted by air and water. When the air is dispersed, the Qi too is dispersed; when the water is stagnant, the Qi too is stagnant.”
Feng Shui is based on the Taoist philosophies of nature; these include the Yin-Yang Theory, Five-Elements Theory and The Trigrams based on Yi Jing. Feng Shui literally means (the flow of) ‘wind’ and ‘water.’ It takes into account many different elements affecting your environment. Good Feng Shui is where the balance of Yin and Yang achieves harmony and the Chinese believe that everything has Qi or cosmic energy and all that has Qi has Yin and Yang qualities. The Qi is divided into three categories: The Tian Qi (Heaven’s Qi), Di Qi (Earth’s Qi) and Ren Qi (Human’s Qi). Yin and Yang are both opposites and complimentary. When we practice good Feng Shui, we attract and cultivate positive energy called ‘Sheng Qi’ and dispel or eliminate negative Qi called ‘Sha Qi.’
Today, Feng Shui is a multi-disciplinary study encompassing architecture, urban planning, geography, astrology, electromagnetism, landscaping, environmental psychology and many others. In the wake of these realities, it is gaining more and more popularity in the West. Like most martial arts disciplines, Feng Shui consists of various system, some good, some not-so-good and some a mixture of both. It is only through years of studies and practical experiences that one can be accredited a Feng Shui expert. Even then, there are very few genuine Feng Shui experts around. Traditionally, Feng Shui was passed down from one master to another and never through a classroom setting.
Feng Shui can be classified into the Theory School, which has three different aspects: The San He, The San Yuan and The Nine Star and The Form School with its emphasis on the study of landscaping. The Theory School was practiced more in the North and Central China while The Form School in the South. After the Ming Dynasty they were merged as one to give a wholesome picture and study of Feng Shui, which was until then sort of incomplete.
The subject of Feng Shui has been well publicized with substantial number of books written, both with complimentary and most of the time conflicting views. Today, however, many claimed to be trained by true Masters of Feng Shui. For such claims to be authentic, the disciple of the art may in turn desire to be a master him/ herself must be able to provide a track record or written record of the master under whom they are trained or the credibility of the school they go to.
To counteract such adulterant and dubitable teachings, a more favourable and unadulterated approach has been taken with more and more traditional masters coming forward.
At the beginning when Feng Shui was popular, many believed that they were into genuine and traditional Feng Shui and gained certificates and became practitioners very quickly. Unfortunately with the passing of time, the master himself became confused and his clients disillusioned and negative results and news started to spread through friends and contacts. Most of them were not even ‘in the know’ of the Feng Shui compass, let alone the usage of it. There was no need to, as their systems did not require it. Instead of suggesting proper remedies, their proposals were in conflict with the Feng Shui of the place.
In other words, instead of using ‘soya source,’ they were using ‘tomato ketchup;’ instead of using ‘paracetomal’ (panadol), it was ‘ponston.’ As a result, Feng Shui fell as fast as it has risen. As Feng Shui is an intricate art, such practitioners must be honest enough to put aside their worthless certificate and start anew.
There is still good news for those genuine and well-established practitioners, for those interested in the knowledge and authentic learning of this intricate art, please contact The Central Academy of Feng Shui, Malaysia & Classic Feng Shui Mastery, Singapore.
