Chapter 1 is all about the meaning of FengShui. How the word FengShui came about and what is its actual meaning. What are the different aspects of FengShui. And whether FengShui is superstition or not.
Chapter 2 is on the History of FengShui. This chapter is packed with vital information not only on the ancient development of it, but also more recent developments. There are short biographies of famous FengShui personalities from Yang Jun Song to Jiang Da Hong, Shen Ju Ren and Tan Yang Wu.
Chapter 3 is the Chinese Calendar system. This chapter traces the development of the Chinese Calendar system and its indispensable connection with FengShui and other Metaphysic studies.
Chapter 4 is one of the most crucial of chapters – Stems and Branches. In this chapter I have put in extremely vital information on Stems and Branches that are not commonly available in English. There is detailed information on the history and development of Stems and Branches; specific meanings and characteristics of each Stem and Branch; its combinations and clashes; etc…..
Chapter 5 is on the 5 Elements – concepts and theories. The history and development of 5 elements; its relationship with other phenomena; individual meanings and characteristics; generation and control; birth and death cycles; balances and imbalances; and 13 different types of 5 Element theories — example Hong Fan 5 elements, NaJia 5 elements, BaGua 5 elements, etc.
Chapter 6 is all about the Yin and the Yang of all phenomena. It traces the history and development of Yin Yang philosophy and its expansion from the TaiJi and integration into the BaGua, 5 elements and others.
Chapter 7 deals with the Concept and Theory of Qi. This is one subject that is most interesting. To the student of FengShui and the professional practitioner, this subject is closest to heart. A FengShui practitioner cannot be proficient if he/she does not have a good grasp of what Qi is all about. This chapter touches on both the philosophy and Metaphysics of Qi. It describes the origin of Qi, Primordial Qi, and Qi as defined in FengShui.
Chapter 8 is the longest chapter of this book – about 40 pages and close to 10,000 words of jam packed information purely on the subject of HeTu and LoShu. The information ranges from the historical development to the different relationships with other phenomena and its indispensable integration into Chinese Metaphysics. How the HeTu is related to the Heavenly Stems and the BaGua; how the LoShu is developed from the HeTu; etc….
Chapter 9 explores the relationship between the YiJing, TaiJi and the BaGua. There is detailed explanation on the TaiJi’s development into the BaGua. There is also detailed explanation on the relationship of the TaiJi with the YiJing.
Chapter 10 is most interesting to the FengShui enthusiast who had never attended practical courses before. It is a chapter dedicated to the explanation of the LuoPan and on the practical usage of it.
Chapter 11 is the last chapter of this book. But this chapter is most crucial for the new students who are undecided about which type of FengShui he/she wants to study. This chapter is all about the different schools of FengShui. It has ample information about contemporary FengShui schools. There is unbiased writing on my part to give the students a fair view of all the different contemporary FengShui schools so that they can decide which school they like to learn from; or what combination of FengShui schools (methods) that they want to learn. I promise that this chapter will be most eye-opening to the new student of FengShui.
