Today is Labor Day and this day is to commemorate the effort and labor of people who have contributed to society. Unfortunately, the a labor of Grand Master Yen Pen has been shadowed for many years and I am partially guilty for not posting up this earlier and this has allowed others to plunder his good effort for years.
Kek Lok Si Temple in Penang has been around for a long time since the British rule in Malaya back in the late 1800s. It was constructed between 1890 to 1905. You may read a bit about it’s history over the internet as there are many resources written about it before.
It is a very famous and prosperous place for a long time and hence it’s fame has attracted many Feng Shui masters and enthusiast to come study to see if it is related to Feng Shui in any way.
Over the past few years quite a few Feng Shui masters and his loyal disciples of the same kind, has touted their Feng Shui method has reign supreme over Flying Star Feng Shui. One example, they used was that Kek Lok Si temple has prospered till today was due to their system’s superiority and that only their system are able to explain the prosperity of this temple.
As to why they need to repeatedly mention that Flying Star system is not a capable system, I don’t know what is their personal grudges against flying star system. To me, when you have known the result of the place, all you need is some creative reverse engineering work to tally the theory to the outcome (good or bad). This is not difficult at all. It is standard industry practice by many aspiring masters.
Why specifically attack Flying Star Feng Shui? Why is there the need to attack other schools? Inferiority Complex ? Why not just proclaim to the world that their lineage is World No 1 ? I am sure there will always be a few loyalist who will believe to the core.
Many students tend follow blindly, they fail to understand that the real skill in Feng Shui is not based on hind sight logic (reverse engineering) but the master’s ability to built and set the formation and later the result comes as predicted during the infancy stage. This is how we do it in all our cases, just read the testimony that we have.
However, not many know that this temple once was having serious financial problems for a number of years and it was rescued by Flying Star Feng Shui. The master responsible for this feat is Grand Master Venerable Yen Pen who is truly a 9 Star Feng Shui system master. The 3 photos are just an extracts of the old diary of our grand master. The full version is with me.
It was mentioned “Looking at the sadness of the abbot, Master Yen Pen could not bear to see the abbot’s sadness so one morning he took his loupan and went to see the abbot and explained to him about the Feng Shui of Kek Lok Si and what has caused the temple’s predicaments. It was in the 1920s then and initially Venerable Yen Pen was reluctant to talk about Feng Shui to the abbot. Luckily, the abbot agreed to the suggestion of Master Yen Pen as to how to change the Feng Shui. The rest is history.Continue reading “Kek Lok Si Temple & Flying Star”
