Chinese founded the art of Feng Shui. Feng Shui is the art of harnessing good earth energy or Qi to prosper human beings. This has lead to the founding of Yin Feng Shui or Burial Feng Shui and the main objective is to benefit their descendants in health, wealth, descendant luck, relationship, achievements etc.
Later this art found it’s way to Living Feng Shui or Yang Feng Shui which means houses, offices, temples, palace, city and so on. This came about because Chinese believe there are also Qi above the ground that can be used to benefit Live people.
Essentially, humans are made of energies and we receive and emit energies despite that we may not be aware of it because we cannot smell it, feel it or see it.
But why temples and ancestral halls? They are neither alive nor dead, they are just statues or plaque. How does it relate to Feng Shui? How does it benefit the descendants?
