What this special Bagua symbolizes
and how to place the object?
The bagua is used massively in "Form
School of Feng Shui", which was the first and oldest feng
shui school dating back to Song Dynasty (AD960-1279). Form School
of Feng Shui which is the basis of all schools of feng shui overides
other school of thoughts when certain shapes and formation in
an environment is not in a desirable mode. This bagua has the
eight trigrams marked around the outside with a luopan and the
"Tai Chi" in the center and is used to neutralize any
unknown effects of external influences to create perfection in
feng shui for homes.
Eight Trigrams (derived from I-Ching or known
as Book of Changes) is the pattern of change in our universe and
its energy were formulated, with their transformation, events
and evolution of mother nature recorded diagramically in the form
of solid (yang) and (yin) lines called trigrams. These natural
events affected our health, livelihood, and relationships.
The eight fundamental trigrams
The symbol of Tai Chi represents the many basic
concepts of Taoist philosophy. It means that everything in the
universe (the "Ten Thousand Things") contains both light and dark,
good and evil. These are complementary aspects rather than conflicting.
The two small dots within each area indicate that Yin contains
the seed of Yang, and Yang contains the seed of Yin. Yin is the
dark, cold, female, introvert, passive side of life, shown as
the Black area. Yang is the light, warm, male, extrovert, active
aspect, shown as the White area. Such a symbol simply creates
balance and equilibrium in energy of your surrounding and is best
to neutralize and filterize excessive energy.
Beware! Baguas can only be placed outdoor. Baguas
placed indoor can be deadly and harmful to us. Baguas should be
placed at the "points of entry of bad chi" into homes
such as at the external portion of doors and windows:
1. Baguas are useful to prevent bad luck from
killing chi if our homes have main doors or windows facing cemeteries/funeral
homes, hospitals/convalescent centers, police/firestations, schools/colleges/universities
and houses of worship such as churches/mosques/temples.
2. Baguas could also repel evil spirits, bad
luck and harmful people when placed on top of main doors.
3. Baguas could also diffuse killing chi (poison
arrows) from lamp post, straight pole, tree and oppressing large building
too close for comfort directly in front of your house.
4. Baguas is best to remedy killing chi (poison
arrows) coming from sharp angles, corners of buildings and roof ridges
of your neighbours pointing at your front doors.
5. Baguas cures continuous rushing chi on a
T-intersection, a street that ends at your front yard with on coming
traffic heading straight towards your house.
6. Baguas nourishes any harmful chi that comes
into our homes through the maindoor without us knowing it.
Defect rules built over time: They have high
degree of quality gloss finish. But because they are held by tools
and shaped through machining from blocks , there could be tiny tool
marks or scratches visible under 30cm visual.
Cast brass work experiences high heat process, gas defect, extreme
shrinking and rough process steps, therefore they have "common
irregularities" on their surfaces. They include blisters, bubbles,
shrinkages, cavities, scratch lines, dents, tarnishes, dark spots,
oxides etc. They are NOT considered as faulty and therefore are
non rejectable. Despite obtaining from factories that provide high
brass purity and the best in workmanship that supply only grade
A pieces to us, common irregularities are still unavoidable.
