Burial Feng Shui

Burial Feng Shui ( aka Yin House Feng Shui )

In ancient times, the emperors would typically commence preparing his tomb and its Feng Shui during the early years of his ascendary to the throne. The actual construction of the tomb will take many years besides locating an auspicious grave site to begin with. The Burial or Yin House Feng Shui premises was a major factor underlying the long reign of the different dynasties. The impact of Burial or Yin House Feng Shui premises can be hundreds of years. The potency of Burial or Yin House Feng Shui is simply Amazing!

Modern days Feng Shui practitioners who are generally familiar with the appreciation of Yang House Feng Shui or Feng Shui for the living are not necessarily knowledgeable about the potency or secrets of the Burial or Yin House Feng Shui. Such arcane knowledge / insights are not made available in classic textbooks as it is only imparted via verbal transmission passed down the line through their own school's lineage. Most modern days Feng Shui practitioners merely pour through the ancient texts to make endless futile attempts to decipher the secrets hidden therein. It is not something common-sensical in the first instance.

Live Grave Setting Up


However, the ancient texts are filled with cryptic-coded characters which are personalised notes only intelligible to the authors themselves. Only their loyal disciples can have the privilege to decode from with the "key" revealed to them by the experienced Feng Shui Masters who in turn received it from their predecessors.

Broadly, the residential and occupational properties of the living persons are called Yang dwellings or Yang houses. Burial sites and tombs, which are dwellings for the dead are called Yin dwellings or Yin house. The Yin domains also include temples. Feng Shui aka Chinese Metaphysics Scholars are still debating which came first, Yang house or Yin house. Yang and Yin house Feng Shui are complementary and are like two sides of the same coin. The underlying principles are the same, only their application differs acccording to their different schools of practices & research validity along their respective lineage.

The Chinese believe that desirably auspicious burial sites allow the dead to rest in peace, ensuring a favourable reincarnation, and can also secure the happiness and prosperity of future generations of descendants. Thus, the need to be buried at a site with good Feng Shui is traditionally very important to the Chinese. The Chinese people believe that a body inauspiciously buried will bring misfortune to the living for at least next three generations. However, if the deceased were to be buried in the correctly aligned orientation with respect to the dead, with the correct environment and at the right time, the family can prosper for many generations to come.

There are many different explanations offered that human life is not only just flesh, blood and bones. They believe human have energy called spirit or soul. There are others think that human has qi ( loosely translated as vital energy force ).  Different people from different background and cultural experience will have their own interpretations and invariably they make a good attempt at describing it to their best insights.

In the Feng Shui context, this "energy" is transformed to something called DNA signature. If the human remains are buried at auspicious location or site, then a chain reaction will be triggered off in which the earth's magnetic energy is modulated by the Qi of the interred human. Thus, a signal is activated to be in their right bandwidth with the deceased person's descendants where they have familial affinity. This deceased person's DNA signature will then provide the linkages to the descendants with similar DNA signature. Another analogy to illustrate this point would be only through specific tuning of the radio signal, will the descendants with similar DNA signature be able to receive a specific broadcast frequency.

Thus if the burial site and time of burial are auspicious, the signal activated will be auspiciously positive. The descendants picking up this 'signal' will be blessed with good health and good fortune. However, if a burial site is inauspicious, a negatively aligned 'signal' will be activated and the descendants will be inauspiciously impacted.

Selecting an auspicious site for burial is highly paramount. If the Yang and Yin qi at a particular meridian spot on the site are well balanced and harmonious, there will be sheng qi or growth qi. This is positive and strong qi and will lead to a good burial site. Conversely, if the earth qi at a burial site that is inauspiciously out of balance and heavily infested with negative attributes, this site will be highly undesirable for burial.


Ultimately, any authentic Feng Shui Practitioner who is worth its salt, will need to have a good mastery of both Yang House Feng Shui and Burial or Yin House Feng Shui knowledge, insights and hidden secrets not made available to the general readers of ancient classics. It is only through established lineage could one truly learn the authentic "da vinci codes" to uncover its potency. In the final analysis, Yang and Yin Feng Shui are like two sides of the same coin. Knowing only one part of the body of knowledge will result in moderately effective solutions at best. At worst, it will be like a surgeon who just had a "successful" major operation but the patient still remains dead. I will leave the conclusion to you and the kind of outcome is up to you to decide.


May the Auspicious Qi Be With You!
