Ba Zhai - A Complete System (Part 1)
By Master Yap Boh Chu

Many know about the Ba Zhai (8 Mansions) school of Feng Shui as a simple system that is based on a person date of birth to generate 4 good directions and 4 bad directions. However, Ba Zhai is much more than that. Although many know the simple application only from the 8 direction of the Ba Gua, proper Ba Zhai actually uses the 24 mountains. It is a complete system that holds all the essentials of a feng shui - location, direction and timing.

KEYNOTE
Master Yap Boh Chu
Prosperity

Many people know that feng shui is all about prosperity, but what is prosperity? Most equate prosperity with wealth, and will say that feng shui can help to make you rich. Many of you as practitioners must have encountered questions from clients such as “Now that you have done my feng shui, when can I strike lottery?” or “Will I soon become a millionaire?” Is it all that feng shui is about, by making people rich? As a matter of fact, traditional interpretation of “Prosperity” is much more than wealth and Feng Shui is an all-encompassing practice that supports a person in many other ways as well. To truly appreciate what feng shui can do for us, let us delve into Chinese culture to understand more about”福” or “prosperity”, and the true meaning of “being rich”.

What is Happiness? Money, career, social status, health or a long, stable marriage?

GM Dr Stephen Skinner
The Historical Purpose of Feng Shui

The Historical Purpose of Feng Shui was not to ‘live in harmony with nature’ or ‘spiritual ecology’ nor was it to just improve the interior decoration. Its purpose was to accumulate qi (ch’i) and to organise it in such a way that the ‘luck’ of occupants of the building would increase and their life be made easier, more fertile and richer, blessing them with abundance. The original names for these practices were Dili and Kan you, not feng shui. Dili concerned itself with identifying the patterns in the landscape, the presence of mountain dragons and water dragons, and their effects on adjacent buildings, so it is not surprising that the modern Chinese meaning of that word is ‘geography’. Kan you related to the timing of changes, and the relationship between direction and time. In the third century these subjects came to be called feng shui, and the effects of wind and water on the accumulation of qi were formulated.
