Determining Entrance Direction

Recommended Posts

Guest
Question: in the Eight-House method, I have read conflicting books about determining which is the entrance direction to be used.
One text insists that the direction of the back door takes precedence and determines the actual direction of the house. Another text says that it is the front door that does, even if the back door is the one most often used.
I am very confused, and would like some help with this question as it means the difference between my house being a Chen house or a Kun house (I'm a Tui!).
Thanks!

Dear Barbara,
Yes, it can be very confusing after reading many books on this simple
theory.
Most of all, it really does not matter if you have to determine the entrance
direction based on the front door or back door.
What I mean is that each author may directly or indirectly use different
methods. But if they are doing it based on traditional Feng Shui, the result
or answer will be the same.
For example, if you follow the `instructions' of the author who says to use
the backdoor, if his written instructions is clear, you would finally arrive
at the same answer as one which uses the front door.
As a reference, the model used in at this url:
http://www.geomancy.net/fs/house1.htm can serve as a reference. This is
because, since the website was launched in June 1997, so far, I have not
changed it and there was once, a frequent user had even consulted e.g.
Professor Steven Field of the Feng Shui Gate who have also confirmed the
information i.e. the template is identical to the kua number.
Very recently, a user noticed that one of the popular books had most likely
had a typo error in the Direction of the kua. I do come across many books
even by reputable authors who once a while may have either a typo error in
their books. This is understandable.
As mentioned earlier, you should try to use the entire model of created by
the author and then if you want, reference the `results' to other books or
even websites like this. Here we are around to clarify any of your doubts.
What this author uses is the Luo Pan where, when you stand at a particular
location, there are two `vertical lines ' one for the facing direction and
the other the `sitting' direction. Here, this person is most likely saying
that the sitting direction is the most important. I do agree here. Either, I
am not sure if you have read his /her concept in total or just reading
between the lines.
If you read between the lines then, you may not get the full essence of what
the person is trying to do. Sometimes also if the author does not put across
his/her ideas clearly, we will continue to have doubts after reading the
book(s).
Warmest Regards,
Cecil

Dear Barbara,
Further to my earlier reply, it would be best to get books that try to
simply Feng Shui theories rather than to `impress' its readers by using
powerful terms. The simplier the explanation, the better. Here, there is
less likely for the information to be mis-interpreted.
Frankly, read books from authors you are comfortable in. If the theory is
the same as the other book, for example the Eight House Theory is very
simple, try to `stick' to the method used to derive the answer. But if other
books are better written in other areas, then utilize the information. This
method, would reduce the confusion we now have with so many books being
`churned out' daily.
Recently, I also come across a few users who e-mailed me directly on
concepts put forth by some writers in the internet. The `teaching' materials
are so impressive that no one understands these terms. But if we put these
terms simply.... it is not that complicated! Try picking up a Feng Shui book
written in Mandarin, one glance and you know the essence of the idea.
The idea here is that if after reading the information or `teaching' once
and you do not get the meaning, put the book or `teaching' aside. Feng Shui
if correctly worded is never that complicated unless one wants to impress
others. Here, it is of no use if no one can get useful information out of
it.
Warmest Regards
Cecil Lee
