San Yuan Qi Men Dun Jia
Qi Men Dun Jia deals with identifying the exact time to perform an action in a particular location in order to get the desired results. The exact time is identified based on the observation of the occurrence of predefined ‘phenomena’. The desired result will be achieved when we commence an action upon observance of the predefined phenomena. Examples of some phenomena are “birds starting to sing in a nearby tree” or “a woman dressed in red walking by.” The Qi Men Dun Jia Charts describe the phenomena that must occur in order for the desired results to be obtained. There are two major methods in Qi Men Dun Jia:
- The 9 Square Method which is also known as the San He method of Qi Men Dun Jia
- The San Yuan method of Qi Men Dun Jia is based on the 64 Hexagrams of Xuan Kong Da Gua
The 9 Square Method (San He) is the basic method of Qi Men Dun Jia which involves fitting the 10 Heavenly Stems, Eight Doors, Nine Stars and Eight Gods into the chart composed of the 9 Squares. One of the 10 Heavenly Stems will be ‘missing’. The 9 Square Method involves locating the ‘missing’ Heavenly Stem in the 9 Square to identify the phenomena that needs to occur.
The San Yuan Method is a hidden secret and the ‘key’ to the practice of San Yuan Xuan Kong Feng Shui, This secret is only passed down through a direct lineage from previous Masters. The San Yuan Method is based on the 64 Hexagrams. There are 1080 Qi Men Dun Jia Charts. Each chart is divided into 64 Hexagrams of Xuan Kong Da Gua. There is a predefined phenomenon for each of these 64 Hexagrams.
A San Yuan Luo Pan containing the 64 Hexagrams of Xuan Kong Da Gua is required in order to practice San Yuan Qi Men Dun Jia. The Xuan Kong Da Gua Method of selecting an auspicious time to commence an action only allows us to identify the appropriate ‘Chinese Hour’. One Chinese Hour is equivalent to two Western Hours. It allows us to identify within this Chinese Hour the exact ‘moment’ when the action must commence in order to obtain a guaranteed result. This ‘moment’ is when a predefined phenomenon is observed to occur.
The effectiveness of applying Qi Men Dun Jia in actual practice lies in our ability to observe the occurrence of the predefined phenomena. Sometimes the phenomenon take a slightly different form compared to what have been described in the old text and it takes an experienced practitioner to spot it.Course Info
