What the Chi Lin symbolizes and how to place the object?
The Unicorn, Dragon Horse or Chi Lin is
a fabulous heavenly creature of good omen, and the symbol of grandeur,
felicity, wise administration, longevity and illustrious offspring.
It had attained the age of 1000 years old and said to be the noblest
form of animal, emblem of perfect good incarnated essence of Five
Elements. The predominant characteristics of the unicorn is its
perfect goodwill, gentleness, and benevolence to all living creatures.
It possessed all the good qualities found in all animals and has
the head of a dragon, scales of the carp and body of a horse.
Some believed that the Chi Lin was actually a giraffe. If one
were to observe carefull, it could be the fact! Its voice is like
the sound of bells and other musical instruments. It carefully
avoids treading upon any living insect, or destroying the grass
under its feet, and its gait is regulated according to propriety.
It is reputed to be able to walk on water as well as on land and
last appeared before the birth and death of Confucious. Confucious
was often associated to Chi Lin because he was born a sage after
his mother stepped on the footsteps of the Chi Lin and got pregnant.
The Chi Lin is regarded by Buddhists to carry the civilizing Book
of Law on its back. In ancient feng shui studies, the Chi Lin
was described as coming out of Yellow River and appeared to Fu
Hsi, the first legendary Emperor, bearing on its back a mystic
Ho Tu map from which the Flying Stars formulas is said to have
evolved. It is always seen as solitary, and appears to mankind
only when a king of the highest benevolence sits upon the throne,
or when a sage is about to be born. It had appeared during the
halcyon days of the Emperors Yao and Shun and when Confucius was
living, but so degenerated have mankind since become that it has
never since shown itself to us again.
Since Chi Lin is a wonderful combination of a dragon's head and
a horse's body, it produces a harmonized mixture of excellent
qualities between the two auspicious animals. It has a more royal
status compared to the other guardians and is simply adorable.
Chi Lin blows "sheng chi" because of its Dragon head
to benefit surrounding. Unlike lions and other fierce creatures,
the Chi Lin representing a "new born baby" by ancient
chinese is very loyal to its owner and easier to tame, like a
lovely horse. Its energy represent vitality, strength, ambition,
good competing spirits, great health, perseverance and fame. Besides,
it also has the scales of a carp which ushers in wealth, prosperity
and abundance. The patterns on its back were used to derive the
earlier heaven bagua, an ultimate symbol in the study of Feng
This powerful symbol is an excellent support
for important people. Chinese emperors have Chi Lin objects on
their tables next to their important seals. And many architectural
motives will use the symbol of Chi Lin to manifest blessings and
good fortune. Large Chi Lins are also used to protect huge businesses
like hotel industry, ministers' homes, banks, antique shops etc.
Chi Lin being an extremely lucky symbol of fortune is usually
depicted standing or sitting on a bed of wealth like coins and
gold ingots to represent increasingly steady income luck and unlimited
windfalls. One will enjoy wonderful prosperity by owning the auspicious
Lin produces wonderful results to enhance family prosperity, career
luck, longevity and excellent health health, wealth luck and family
