Feng Shui Chinese Medicine are must learn subjects for ancient Chinese students.
In the past, especially during the Confucian time (about 500 BC), students of Confucian, they must learn subjects such as, Li (Ritual), Music, Archery, Driving, History, Literature, Mathematics and of course I-Ching. They learnt the Confucianism I-ching to be exact. The Confucianism I-ching is different from the fortune telling divination I-Ching.
As time evolves, these subjects change according to education policies of Dynasties. However, Confucian set up these syllabus for the posterity scholars.
One of my Feng Shui Masters told me that other than the above subjects, the students also need to learn Feng Shui Chinese Medicine.
Chinese has strong traditional culture, such patriarchal and sons have to be filial son. They need to learn traditional Feng Shui Chinese Medicine in order to look after their parents’ life and dead.
Learning Feng Shui Chinese Medicine
Learning Chinese medicine is to look after their parents while they have health issues. What kind of medicine or herbs to give to their parents to cure various illnesses when they felt sick.
Every human being’s life cycle is the same: birth, growth, sick and dead. None of us can escape from the cycle. It is a matter of sooner or later.
The Feng Shui aspect comes in is to look after their parents when they are passed away.
A filial son must learn Feng Shui in order to find a good Feng Shui spot to bury his parents. In traditional Chinese culture, when parents reach their mature age. Mature age means over 70 years old. They will ask their children to find them a good Feng Shui spot for them. It is called “Sheng Ji” (生基). It is hard for me to direct translate these 2 characters. But it means a good bury spot ready for someone after they passed away.
Feng Shui Chinese Medicine are both based on the Yin-Yang and Wu Xing (five-elements) theories.
