A hearty Congratulations to Grand Master Francis Leyau for his 30 Years of dedication in the field of Feng Shui.!


Truth and Facts of The Classic Text of San Yuan Di Li Lu Tou

Truth and Fact: History of two most sought after San Yuan Feng Shui Book by today’s Feng Shui practitioners & masters.

三元地理玄空路透 (San Yuan Di Li Lu Tou) and 三元地理玄空實驗 (San Yuan Di Li Shi Yan) are two well known Feng Shui text studied by many of today’s Feng Shui practioners & masters. These two classic texts document many undisclosed theories, practical research & analysis of the Yang (living) and Ying (tomb) Feng Shui.

三元地理玄空路透 (San Yuan Di Li Lu Tou) was first published in 1922 and 三元地理玄空實驗 (San Yuan Di Li Shi Yan) followed subsequently. Unfortunately, during the Japanese occupation of China and subsequent communist takeover, all the books were burned and destroyed with the exception of one copy each of the two books survived (safe-kept by Master Tang Yang Wu). To avoid the lost of the great art of Feng Shui, Grand Master Tan Yang Wu passes these two one-and-only copies to Grand Master Sui Beng who later came to Malaya and Singapore and by chance of fate, they were handed down to my Master, Master Francis Leyau (the only surviving direct lineage master from the Tan Sui Beng line).

Till then, the two books were never republished. Undertaking the task of safekeeping the two books, Master Leyau shared the exact same belief as late Master Tan Yang Wu. He doesn’t want this true art of Feng Shui to be lost. In early 1990s, these two original one-and-only copies were sent to Wan Li Bookstore in Singapore. The bookstore owner took the books to Taiwan for republishing. 4 years later after the books were published, the Originals were handed back to Master Leyau to be once again safe-keep.

We hereby thank Grandmaster Francis Leyau for his generosity of spirit in sharing this great art of Feng Shui that was almost lost. If not for the republishing, the true art of San Yuan Xuan Kong Feng Shui of today will never be complete.

The books became one of todays most sought after Feng Shui texts. Many look into unlocking the key behind these two classic manuscripts to level up their skills and knowledge in San Yuan Feng Shui (e.g. Flying Star, Xuan Kong Da Gua etc) and through the years; many claimed that they have grasped the true essence of the texts.

In theory yes, the texts may look simple but not to forget, the Chinese way of writing always hold multiple and hidden meaning typically with the ancient Chinese scripts. The person who understands best the true meaning and principle behind these two Feng Shui manuscripts are probably still the Masters of this lineage.

Feng Shui of Hyatt Hotel Singapore…Controversies or Confusion ?

As I prepare for the upcoming course in Kuala Lumpur, I came across some case studies that I suddenly thought of the Hyatt Singapore.

Many feng shui articles had been written about this Famous Hotel in Singapore in Scott/Orchard Road. Why this hotel shot to fame in the feng shui domain?

It all started by one of our Grand Master Hong Chuan who corrected the Feng Shui of this hotel and resulted in business growth after the audit. You can read more about this in internet.

But what prompted me to write about it now? I have read just too many comments about the feng shui of Hyatt and while today my aim is not to explain the feng shui of Hyatt, I just want to make corrections to a few vastly mistaken facts about feng shui and methods know only to our lineage, the Wu Chang lineage and not as what was written by those who do not belong to our lineage.

Seriously, you cannot comment on something you don’t know and I feel this is irresponsible when they try to downplay  Grand Master’s work.

Here I shall quote several statements and my comments on it.

Many say it is Castle Gate theory as done by Master Hong Chuan. This is not true. This is a method called Door Tilting but not many knows how it works actually though many practitioner tries to use it. And that is not my slipper.

Some even say it is from the San He 5 Ghost carry Treasure. Master Hong Chuan is San Yuan practitioner as his master is Master Yen Pen who did all the cases in the classic book of Er Zhai Shi Yan and Zhai Yun Xin An. Undoubtly, many master has this book in their homes but how many can fully interpret it? But still it is grand to have this book on the shelf!

Master Yen Pen is the student of Tan Yang Wu, our Great Grand Master from the Wu Chang Sect. How can someone just twist facts just to get fame and students!!! Wu Chang belongs to San Yuan School and this is clear!!!

Another author was saying that the original door was facing straight out to the road and that the reception desk was looking out directly to the road and cause wealth to leak out. Obviously, this person does not practice Flying Star Feng Shui. Jiang Da Hong said in the book Ba Zhai Tian Yuan Fu, ‘…to truly understand the 8 houses, you must understand the 9 numbers in the 9 palaces’.

Then a famous master from Hong Kong gave his diagnosis that the poor business was caused by bad Water star 8 at the door and Water 7 was trapped in the center. He then said that Master Hong Chuan tilted so the business is good during Period 7 and 8.  This is again not true. First, he does not understand the rule of the 3 & 5 auspicious in the Wu Chang lineage. Secondly, Master Hong Chuan had advice that by 1984 the feng shui has to corrected again.! This is already a great tip if you truly understand the Art of Door Tilting.

So the guesses goes on…right to even Xuan Kong Da Gua! Speculation after speculation.

To me it is more of a coincidence than real application that someone get good results unless he knows the Art of Door Tilting.

The saying that goes “The Pen is Mightier Than the Sword” is very true. Facts can be just twisted with a stroke of the pen. Generations down the road will learn all the wrong things and twisted history.

A Course Not To Be Missed…二宅实験 (Er Zhai Shi Yan)

If you are serious in the practice of Flying Star Feng Shui, this is a course you must not miss. Why?

This book 二宅实験 (Er Zhai Shi Yan) is the 3rd book of all the cases done by Master Yen Pen @ Eu See Yin on both Yang and Yin Cases recorded by his disciples.

The first 2 books are called Zhai Yun Xin An (New Case Study of House Feng Shui). Here is an article written by Master Issac Chung.

In fact if you search in the Internet on images alone this is what you will see..

All these books are the favourite collection of Masters around the globe and I bet if you visit the private study rooms of Masters, there are sure to be a copy there especially those Chinese Literate masters. However, how many is able to fully interpret the book? This is something I know is only a handful unless they are our graduates.

What is special about this book is that, inside are all the real case done and results obtain but more importantly it has doctrinated the advance theories of Flying Star Feng Shui. Only a Master from the same Lineage is able to understand what are the hidden secrets inside this book.

This is not another Flying Star Feng Shui course, this is one and only unique to CAFS. No way you can equate with other Flying Star courses.

This case study itself, you will learn how to lay a good feng shui formation that is proven, pin point the timing of happening and what is really a sha qi, the compartmentalise of a house and the application onto a plot of land.

Without going through this course, you cannot call yourself a Real Flying Star Practitioner. Next, I share 2 reasons and cases.

Most schools today like to mix and match systems. E.g. they mix 8 Mansion (Ba Zhai) with Flying Star or Mix San He with San Yuan Flying Star & call it Zhong He. They then sell this idea to newbies that they are merging the best of the 2 worlds like you try Western and Eastern medical methods to cure a patient. First of all, Feng Shui don’t work in this manner because they are founded on 2 different systems & it is more like trying to merge 2 religious believe together. Try imagine this, a couple from 2 different religion holding on to their believes and try to bring the best out of 2 religion after marriage. Perhaps there will be an emerging 3rd religion if they ever survive this as a couple.

A likely result from this is the proliferation of different arts each trying to explain what they cannot explain in their current learning. Today Chinese Metaphysicians are going after Qi Men Dun Jia Divination, Yi Jing Feng Shui, Zi Wei Feng Shui, 8 Mansions, Symbolic or play it down or up on “Internal Feng Shui” in an unending cycle trying to search the truth why this and that happened. Why sometimes I get the result and other times nothing happened or it had gone bad?

When the fundamentals are not correct, how do you expect to have the correct results? I have no issues if people wants to learn more but first get the fundamentals right.

We had a case, a client for Yin Feng Shui that the husband passed away after about 9 months living in the new house done by 1 famous feng shui master. After the burial was done, we had chance to speak to the lady who was so traumatized at the passing of her husband aged late forties. We persuaded her to show us the house but at first she was reluctant but later she agreed to show us the house where the husband passed away after a heart attack.

We were surprised that the bed was aligned 45 degrees and was in a 9-5 position in a 9-2.(if you dont understand this, it is understandable as this is unique in our course). We know that the master was a practitioner of mix and match system. If you think mix match is funny, think again! Feng Shui can get people into trouble if it is not done correctly.

On another case, we have a student who only studied 2 courses from Master Leyau, Flying Feng Shui and Advance Flying Star (Er Zhai). After graduation, he did the next 10+ cases and his friends/relatives was astonished how he can tell the house and the occupants so well! This was the testimonial he happily gave Master Leyau. I am not bragging. I am only telling what was told to us by the student himself. I cannot lie for lies will be exposed someday and there is no need to do so. Real conviction comes from real experience.

It is not the problem with the art nor the student nor the master. It is the combination of the Right Knowledge from the Right Master then you will be the Right Student!.

I know most students are frustrated but actually they don’t have to, really! .When you acquire the right knowledge, your skills will be apart from the rest because you and your family deserves to have a better life. Don’t miss this!

Read on to know what you will be getting in a complete San Yuan Flying Star system.

Historical Melaka boast many tourist attractions, good food and everything that is uniquely Malaysia. I can now ‘smell the aroma of the pork Satay, the fragrant curry, the tasty satay celup and ah…not forgetting the awesome Hainanese Chicken Rice. A stroll down Jonker Street brings many fond memories…

Case Study…Taking Direction

Last year I was in Singapore and a long time friend invited me to stay over and as we caught up after so long, we suddenly touched the subject of feng shui since she knew the reason I was in Singapore was to assist Master Leyau in the class. She never thought I could end up in this field…Haha…anyway,

She started to tell me how it all started when the husband engaged the feng shui master to audit the house prior to renovation. Then she lamented that it was not “smooth” even after couple of years. She then asked me a few questions related to what she observed and what the Master told them but I could not comment for a while as I don’t know her house. Finally, she asked me to take a “look” at her house. So as a childhood friend, how can I say no and after all she offered me free accomodation.

Out of curiosity my first question to her was “Where did he take the direction?” She promptly replied me “Here!” . I just acknowledged and wish her good night as it was already late, by my standards..haha… I promised to check it tomorrow morning. I already know the answer because that is not where you should take the house facing based on her condominium structure.

Next morning, while everyone was still asleep, I measured the condominium and later I asked her just a few questions and to my surprised it was Yes all the way…now I know ….

2 lessons learnt: 1. always do good, for you may be returned with free services…haha…2. fundamental things when is not well mastered, it spells disaster for yourself or your clients.

Jokes aside, simple things like where to take direction when is done wrongly, it make a whole lot of difference. Taking house direction or house facing is an art very important in the practise of feng shui.

Unfortunately, in her house, all the furnitures, bed etc…was fixed, typical situation in Singapore houses…sad but lastly I told her only 1 remedy. Happily 3 months later she dropped me a thank you sms that things has improved a little.

I was happy for her…the least I can do for a long time friend.

The reason I shared this is not to sell CAFS courses nor me as a consultant but rather to emphasize that in the study of Feng Shui, don’t be too eager to apply advance techniques or too eager to practise feng shui commercially but rather master the fundamentals well.  There is a saying “Rome was not built in a day.” Acquire the right knowledge for wrong knowledge is worse than no knowledge.

When the basics are strong, many problems are already solved and friends, remember that everything has it’s own Karmic values.

Happy Learning…..

Recently Concluded Flying Star Feng Shui Malaysia.

Here are some news on the recently completed course in Flying Star Feng Shui Course. A very big thank to Master Leyau for hosting us in CAFS Melaka School and going through the practical session with students.

The 4 days was fully packed both day and night. During the day everyone was busy and attentive to the course work during the day and at night we had sumptous dinner, night tour in melaka, “spiritual” training with Grand Master. Extended informal sessions with Master is a real eye and ear opener for all students including me a long time student.

Students have to understand all the Feng Shui case studies and nothing is better in learning than practical experience. One case explains a hundred theories & they all tied up together in application.

Personally, I am very happy to be able to be a part of this noble deed of continuing passing on the real art of Flying Star Feng Shui to more people. Knowledge is important but only if it is Real. Thank you Master!.

Here are some testimonial from students:

Learning in and outside the class is always lots of fun with GM, interesting subjects, materials and discussions, gm wants us to understand all the concept easily by his vast teaching method from his long year experiences, practical learning is something that we definitely cant get from any book of fengshui, make all of us wont this course finish early, especially after having those meals cooked by himself, he, he, yummy,,, thank you so much,, we want to learn more & more,, and more,,, Adios Erwin R Tan – Surabaya, Indonesia

Thank you – Liew, Kuala Lumpur.

During the 4 days courses (Xuan Kong Flying Star) and stay in Malacca is the best course I ever had. Never regret but gain a lot of knowledge from Great Master Francis Leyau. Master Francis Leyau spends a lot of time with us then his family.

 Master Francis Leyau character is patience, passionate, caring, simple, down on earth generous with his time and knowledge. The course conducted is easy and simplifier. It is like fixing a jig jag puzzle.

At the last days we can see the whole picture of what we had learnt. In the evening Master Francis Leyau brings us to eat Malacca specialties food and hot spring water.

During practical time, Master Francis Leyau and Mr. Alan Chong (instructor) will hands on moving the furniture’s and partition of wall to show us. It was a wonderful experience. Mr. Alan Chong is a very easy to get along as if we know each other for years. Mr. Alan Chong will go round on each table to see and guide us.

On the second last day Master Francis Leyau personally cook delicious food for us to eat. Not only us (class) and also invited his ex-student over. It is like a big family from Central Academy of Feng Shui. WE get to know each other. For those who have read our past testimonial should join the first course and you will feel the different. If you read and don’t act is a great lost. If you read and join you are smart and make a correct decision.

Finally, I would like to thanks Master Francis Leyau and family. Mr. Alan Chong to link us to Master Francis Leyau.

Sincerely Chew Woon Ping – JB M’sia.

Reasons to Learn from CAFS…

I would like to express my grateful gratitude to Master Leyau for his knowledge that he had shared with us – indeed so simple, remarkable patient. Master has many methods in his teaching; complicated subject can be explained in a very simple way. I always used to think that my knowledge in Ba Zi is good enough (I have taken two courses from two different masters, and read many times over few English books in this special subject), but … the very first lesson on the first day, I only realized – all the statistics in Ba Zi have a new interpretations.. I do not remember who, he said :. “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes” Wizard, the magician, who opened our eyes to observe things (which we had already knew) in a new perception. This is a very challenging and interesting movement. I think it is necessary to progress and improve my knowledge. Therefore, I hope Master can find time and opportunity to organize an advanced course in Bazi two years from now, ( he has promised) for our Russian group. I can certainly recommend this course to everyone –suitable for beginners or those who want to improve their “Bazi” to the next level

I’d like to express my appreciation to Grandmaster Francis Leyau for selflessly sharing of his knowledge and decades of experience on the topic, and to Master Dennis Lai, who facilitated the course and provided valuable guidance along the way.

The CAFS/CFM Xuan Kong Flying Star course has undoubtedly the most comprehensive syllabus that I have ever seen. The delivery of the course was so precise, concise, and best of all, made so easy to understand that in just 4 days, all doubts were clarified and all confusion dissolved. Everything just made perfect sense.

Then comes the Advanced Xuan Kong Flying Star Course that completely blew my mind away! The highly advanced concepts that had so many seasoned practitioners befuddled were laid out and explained in no less clarity than basic and simple theories.The course certainly delivered what it had promised, i.e. a complete understanding of the Xuan Kong Flying Star system of Feng Shui and taking my skills to an unprecedented level of competency!

Sincerely yours, Ken Tan


Basic Flying Star —————– This is a required foundation course for picking up Tan Yang Wu school’s Flying Star Feng Shui which is slightly different from other schools of Feng Shui.  Grandmaster Leyau’s profound knowledge and experience in Flying Star Feng Shui is revealed in the course as his fast and comprehensive in-depth coverage of the subject really enlightened us.

Advanced Flying Star ——————– The “Harvard of Feng Shui”. The case study approach to Flying Star is unbeatable.  This is a without doubt a required course for anyone seriously considering entering the trade part time or full time.

I believe there are many learners, including myself has attended many different Chinese metaphysics classes, but still don’t have the full confident or knowledge to practice effectively. I feel that the most important aspect when we attend any class, is to be able to practice effectively on what we have learned at the end of the lesson. After attended both San Yuan Xuan Kong flying Star Mastery and the Advance course, I’m able to apply what I was taught in class with great confidence, when I perform the Feng Shui Audits. I would like to say a big thank you to Shi Fu Francis Leyau for his wonderful teaching. He has certainly made me understand Flying Star Feng Shui with greater depth, and guided me to the correct learning track. Thank you Shi Fu
