I know many masters especially those who resides in the west say that Yin Feng Shui 阴宅风水 or Burial Feng Shui is more about filial than Feng Shui per se. I don’t know what prompted them to think this way. Maybe it’s their lack of knowledge, bad experience when they started handling Yin Feng Shui cases before or simply misinterpretation of the classics since they do not come from a Lineage school.
Recently I was invited to one of the most established Memorial Park in Malaysia. During the tour the staff brought me around for introduction to their park. The half way during the tour the staff asked me about a particular grave.
He said, Sifu, can you do a quick look at this particular grave? ” and being obliging I pull out my Luopan and measured the tomb stone and subsequently the surrounding land forms. I then said ” This grave after done, will prosper all children but in particular, female benefit more” His face was nothing but a frozen look.
Yin Feng Shui or Ancestral Feng Shui
It has been sometime that I have not written something on Yin Feng Shui or also known as Ancestral Feng Shui / Burial Feng Shui. This is a very important process in the Chinese tradition because we revered our ancestors very much and hence put in the importance of honoring them even after they have completed their lives here on earth.
As we Chinese belief, this is one of the most powerful method of feng shui that can help a family rise to great heights and also cast a spell on the descendants for many years if done wrongly. This is sometimes a scary thing that most people today decided to cremate rather than bury.
Of course cremation also makes better sense in today’s situation simply due to scarcity of land as well as the high cost associated with burial. After cremating, they can put the ashes into a columbarium.

Yin Feng Shui Principles
Yin Feng Shui is very dependent on the land formations and the skill of the Feng Shui master to select the land which is called a Xue spot 穴. The Xue is considered a good spot with the strong and auspicious energy that can prosper the descendants through the bones of the deceased. Many may find this concept hard to accept but it is a fact and today modern science is able to explain.
Ms Tsai Ing Wen, the new president of Taiwan was said to have benefited from the ancestral Feng Shui or Burial Feng Shui. In Feng Shui terminology, it is known as Yin House Feng Shui 陰宅風水. It is called Yin because it is Feng Shui for the deceased & buried under the ground.
This video is a documentary about the history of the parents Feng Shui and some description about the land forms in Mandarin. Her father was a car mechanic and became very rich after his father passed away and had the Feng Shui done by a Feng Shui Master back then in Taiwan.
This is one of the many stories of people enhancing their life with proper Yin Feng Shui done. The land selection criteria is very important in Yin Feng Shui & this is the key to the success of a Yin Feng Shui formation.
Her father’s grave was once planted as a Life Grave or known as 種生基, which later was converted to a Grave after his demise. It was all done with the hope to help the daughter to be someone great in life. You can see very strong Mountain Qi surrounding this tomb.
