San Yuan Qi Men Dun Jia, the Creme de la Creme of Date Selection

Here is testimonial from our Student on the recent class. If you have the knowledge he has revealed something here:

The 64 Gua Qi Men Dun Jia (64卦奇门遁甲) is diamond of  Sanyuan (三元) Fengshui courses that I have been waiting for years and it’s finally here and I couldn’t believe it when it was inform by Dennis. Master Leyau have been very kind to share this very secret knowledge of  Sanyuan(三元)64 Gua Qi Men Dun Jia(奇门遁甲)and this will help one to close the gap in pursue of the Golden Nectar of San Yuan(三元) Fengshui knowledges and applications.


The 3 trinity of 三元 Fengshui has always mention when one have discussion on the very topic and actually how many people really understand the real meaning of 天 (Heaven : Season), 地 (Earth : Fengshui) and人 (Human : Birth).  Have you ever wonder what is common link or DNA that will bridge the 3 trinity. To keep the story short and sharp, this is the course that will reveal a lot of mystery or missing gap that kept me pondering and wondering all these years.

Master Leyau have been generous and patience to guide us step by step knowledge of how do the Qi Men(奇门) Almanac using Zhi Run Fa (置闰法) instead of Chai Bu Fa(拆补法). I have finally understood how the Yin Yang Dun (阴阳遁) numbers (1,6,7,2,8,3,4,9) come about from the seasonal chart which was beautifully taught through simple explanations through the understanding of the Season Markers Chart. Reference to get the Ba Men (八门) for the 64 Gua (卦)can be complicated and confusing at times. It was made simple by inclusion of few simple chart cleverly and neatly lay out to ensure ease of reference. As usual, with Master Leyau loud and thunderous voice, when he humorously explained how the “Phenomenon” part come about which all of us was eagerly anticipating and brought everyone of us crying with laughter when we know the method and reason. Now all students could proficiently explain the “Phenomenon” on the mysterious wind that Zhuge Liang borrowed,  flock of Birds flying, sudden drop of temperature etc…

After attending Master Leyau San Yuan 64 Gua Qi Men Dun Jia (三元64卦奇门遁甲), I finally could understand Ceng Zi Nan (曾子南) materials and even able to fully appreciate and use Ceng Zi Nan (曾子南) Almanac (万年历) and Qi Men Calendar (奇门历表) to the fullest.

There is one word that I can express about Master Leyau teaching as follows:  “Sifu teaching is like the Clean Air we breathe in easily everyday and always taking it for granted as simplicity is it’s core. Only when we see others gasping for air at their dying moment just wanting to live a little longer than will we realize that the Fengshui knowledge available outside is choking everyone with complicated hard to understand teaching which makes everyone wanting for more.”

Here is another nice one from our student…this will give you a glimpse of what San Yuan Qi Men is about and not what you find in books in the market. Updated 1-1-2013

I am thankful to Master Francis Leyau for bringing to light for the first time the secret knowledge of San Yuan 64 Gua Qi Men Dun Jia. The charts were first published by the famous Taiwanese master Zeng Zi Nan, and many years later, a course that teaches how to derive and use them. One of the last and best kept secrets of Xuan Kong Feng Shui! This knowledge is based on the traditional San Qi Liu Yi (3 rare 6 protocol) and Ba Men (8 Door) plates, that are expanded into 64 directions using the Shao Yong sequence. You will then learn how to use them in conjunction with date selection to find the best timing for a given building or grave. In the last day of the course, sifu shows how to observe the phenomena that manifests when such powerful and precise timings are chosen. The student also becomes proficient in making his own Qi Men Dun Jia calendar from scratch. I strongly recommend to all Feng Shui enthusiasts and date selection practitioners in particular to attend this module. I have previously learned with other masters but it was at the Central Academy of Feng Shui that I found the teaching is authentic with the straightforward practical applications and above all, yielding the best results.

San Yuan Qi Men Dun Jia 三元奇門遁甲

San Yuan Qi Men Dun Jia….the ultimate skills of Timing.

San Yuan Qi Men Dun Jia is one of the most sought after art of QMDJ but unfortunately not much of it’s information is available to the public.

One of the master who popularize this art was Master Zhen Zi Nan (曾子南). Master Zhen was one of the best San Yuan Master known to date. He was famous for 2 arts, QMDJ & the other is the Xuan Kong Da Gua which is more famously known as Xie Zi Fa.

Master Leyau with Master Zhen (Right) during The 10th International Conference of Yi Ching Learning in Taiwan 1993.

In the art of Qi Men Dun Jia, typically there are 2 main styles, one is the San Yuan version which is based on the 64 Hexagrams while the the other is based on the 9 palaces, 8 gods, 8 door,etc..and collectively called the San He version.

Briefly, the art of QMDJ is mainly used to find the auspicious hour to get or do what you intended but the approach is different within the 2 arts of QMDJ.

The San Yuan version is an art refined to a level that it pin points the exact time period within a Chinese Hour or typically a 2 hour in our current time system after doing a Xuan Kong Da Gua Date Selection.

A seasoned practitioner will be able to predict the situation/weather/phenomena during that short most auspicious  period. Other practical application is like to set headstone of a tomb. Such is the real use of San Yuan QMDJ.

This is what precisely Zhen Zi Nan is famous for. Using San Yuan QMDJ to select dates and obtaining the desired results through observing the phenomena happening. This greatly enhanced the strength of the feng shui that he does just like a catalyst in a chemical reaction.

Timing is important in what ever we do in life. Very simple example is, “is this the right time to talk to boss regarding this matter?”.

Is this the best time to buy this property? Timing presents it’s question to us on a daily basis. While I am not advocating that every thing that you do, has to be date selected using QMDJ, what I am trying to say is that Timing is important and that choosing the right time gives us the best opportunity to succeed especially when you are setting the Feng Shui.

San Yuan QMDJ is the ultimate skill in Date Selection 擇日 in Feng Shui System.


Another Great Testimonial from A Seasoned Practitioner.

Here I append the English Translation, my humble translation…for the Chinese Version (Original Version), please visit fengshuimastery.com

Feng shui is not an easy art to master. This is my honest expression from years of practicing feng shui. Without the guidance of an experienced master, it is very difficult to master the finer points of feng shui. Reason feng shui as been taken by public as a superstition or con man’s tool to cheat the public is part on us as feng shui practitioners, we have the responsibility to correct this wrong perception.

Those ancient masters I don’t mention, just the more recent masters like, Tan Yang Wu, You Xin Yin (Yen Pen), Ven. Hong Chuan, Ven. Sui Ming, Chen Bei Sheng, Zhen Zi Nan etc…, those people who benefitted from their help are countless and same time many practitioners who have not mastered the finer art of Feng Shui has eagerly gone into practice, may have caused damages to their clients and their generations without knowing it. It is sad to know this happenings.

As they have passed away, I can only patiently accumulate the experience, and through mistakes I verify respected teachers’ teachings. Sometimes I am stuck and I have nobody to ask for guidance so I have to only depend on myself to find the answers. Most masters only explain the wordings on the classics but not the hidden meaning of the texts and this is very common nowadays. After many years of searching for a real master which I almost give up but perhaps heaven heard my sincere heart’s calling and via Mr Lai I finally managed to meet Master Leyau.

Laozi in his book Tao De Ching, has a poem that I can use the best describe or express my gratitude to my Master:

Extracted from Tao De Ching

When the great man learns the Way, he follows it with diligence;
When the common man learns the Way, he follows it on occasion;
When the mean man learns the Way, he laughs out loud;
Those who do not laugh, do not learn at all.

Therefore it is said:
Who understands the Way seems foolish;
Who progresses on the Way seems to fail;
Who follows the Way seems to wander.

For the finest harmony appears plain;
The brightest truth appears coloured;
The richest character appears incomplete;
The bravest heart appears meek;
The simplest nature appears inconstant.

The square, perfected, has no corner;
Music, perfected, has no melody;
Love, perfected, has no climax;
Art, perfected, has no meaning.

The Way can be neither sensed nor known:
It transmits sensation and transcends knowledge.

In the above poem, there is 1 phrase that “great man learns the way” and sincere people after listening will strive to work harder while those who are not clear after listening, will only laugh at it but the real dao are usually things that we laugh at. That is why the sage says “ the illumination in the dao is like darkness, the forward dao is like moving backwards” it is like a kind of contradictory meaning because its true meaning has not been unraveled. Usually the accomplished person will often look like a monk/priest/sage.

So what has it got to do with me in my journey of finding master? It is me telling master “I will remember your teachings & work diligently towards it” & master’s image in my mind is like the above poem.

Also, I must thank Wanli Singapore Mr Lai for leading me to meet Master Leyau. He helped me accomplish my wish in searching for a right Master although I have at least 16 years of experience in Feng Shui. When I decided to enroll to master’s courses, I choose to start off with the most basic course and learn from beginning [to unlearn to learn].

1. 三元玄空飛星課(Flying Star Feng Shui)

Those who have learnt Xuan Kong will know what is Flying Star and I am no exception and I have deep experience in Flying Star, at least this are my thoughts before I attended the course. During the course, Master’s explanation is really profound and deep. Then from here my understanding of Flying Star has gone another level deeper as master decode the real meaning behind. He always explains in simple words the application & interpretation of Flying Star. Like the meaning of Mountain and Water is not as what I have understood till today, & I felt very surprise with this new teaching, it is an eye opener. Even the most common 81 combination, no need to memorize and you can almost immediately remember. Master Zhang’s  secret formula of 7 star Robbery was explained well by Master and is not as complicated as what you read in books. The Castle gate theory that has been most feng shui master’s difficult/confusing subject because most common teachings has explained in many ways but are not practical. However, what master has taught can be used to benefit the public, at least this is my understanding. In Xuan Kong Feng Shui, everyone knows that the main door is important but how to know the right position to bring in auspiciousness because a slight misunderstanding of the theory can make good become bad. Just an explanation from Master, I now grasp the real secret of this concept. My years of doubts and blind spot in Flying Star has been cleared during this course. If you really serious about learning Flying Star, this course is a must for you.

This is my experience after attending the course with master.

2. 二宅實驗課( Er Zhai – Advance flying star)

This is my 2nd astonishing class, Er Zhai Shi Yan is a book that every practitioner of Xuan Kong should read. It records the past cases and by far one of the most comprehensive records of Xuan Kong teachings and secret but master has so skilfully explained it’s content. Grandmaster (Yee Sin Monk) has recorded so many cases and to expound the key concepts inside this book. Before this course, this book is one of the intriguing book even after going through it many times. Those sections that I cannot understand has now been clearly explained by master (Master Leyau) the Yang(Living) house sections. Each case is explained in detail so I have now cleared my blind spots. Now, when I re study the book, I now understand Grandmaster’s meaning in the book and his hard works. Master has explain both the theory and application completely. Without his guidance, it is impossible to catch the essence of this book. So many practitioners of Xuan Kong Flying star think that it is about big and small taiji of the 9 palaces and perhaps you are one of them. If you come to this course and also read this book人間天眼指南 you will discover the real meaning of shifting palace & sitting and facing then you will truly understand the secret and call yourself a graduate.

3. 玄空大卦風水課(Xuan Kong Da Gua Feng Shui)

At present there a many XKDG feng shui courses and many have learnt it before, however, XKDG is not as what books or course teach outside as they are not pragmatic. After attending master’s course I only feel this is real feng shui. It is like a refreshing feeling of a new understanding of for example, what is truly Qian mountain Qian facing Qian water, what is Kun Ren Yi, coming out from Ju Men, River East coming auspicious, 8 gods 4 as 1 etc. is like the oral secret of the classics exposed by master. Now the key points, in 7 star robbery, Li palace must combine, this secret is not as what books or common books say, Li palace as the robber, Kan as the fake robber. Apart from this, I also have understood the oracle of Jing Fan, Bagua Yao, Wen wang gua etc. which was in the past a difficult & also subjects  like zhuang gua & changing yao.

Master’s XKDG course, I can say is really an eye opener. I am fortunate to have learnt from master the essentials. Even the book Di Li Bian Zhen every sentence is explained by master.

I really appreciate master’s guidance and teachings.

These are my experience so far attending the course with master. Later I will join master’s Yin Feng Shui, XKDG date selection and San Yuan Qi Men Dun Jia and palmistry.


I too hope more people can acquire the right knowledge but perhaps one needs good karma to find a good master? Have a nice coming week!
