    What is Fengushi?
 
  What is Fengshui? (The Chinese Concept Of Vastu):- Literally, Feng-shui means “Flow Of Energy through Wind & Water” (In Indian terms – Hava-Paani). This ancient Chinese practice of positioning and placement promotes living where the “wind is soft, water is calm & the life is balanced".

Origin of Feng-shui:- Feng Shui, the ancient "art of placement" (like Indian Vasthu-shastra) originated in the breath positive beautiful mountainous regions & hills of the Middle Kingdom of China from where it spread in Japan, United Kingdom, India, Malaysia, Indonesia, Burma & Taiwan and in other parts of the world through informal & traditional mediums and well defined guidelines through formal literature. Ancient Chinese people believed that the earth was full of supernatural powers like spirits. Everything in the world is there in it: human being, cattle, animals, birds, plants, rocks and minerals, the water, thunder, lightening and the mighty weather systems all carry wonderful cosmic power and energies. They have the capacity and capability to generate different positive & negative vibrations. Feng Shui, the mystic science or the ancient Chinese art of achieving harmony through careful placement of objects, is finding followers in whole of the World.

Logical explanation: According to the belief of feng-shui, it defines that everything in this world has one or the other kind of energies. The modern science too agrees with this concept up to enough extent. That is why this science came into existence and got a good hold amongst all the occult sciences working on the principles of subtle energies.

Pure modern science proved that every living, non living or the all other types of objects & articles including clay, sand, stone, plant, birds, animals etc. are formed with the different molecules, elements and compounds taught in chemistry. Therefore, everything has a configuration of an atom that contains protons and neutrons in the central space called nucleus and they have electrons moving in the preset orbits and sub-orbits around the nucleus. Thus, as per the above philosophy, each thing in a house keeps on receiving & emitting vibrations. That’s the basis of talking of energies in Feng-sui.

Origin and background: This art of living and positioning and placement of various objects in an abode was originated in the lap of mountains of Everest towards the Tibetan part & other Southern geographical regions of China. In all the Fengshui masterships, Feng shui is normally & typically associated with the following methods to calculate the Yang & Yin impacts.

Feng-shui & Astronomy:
Early feng shui also relied on the universal system of astronomy to find correlations between human beings and the universal energies and it is inseparable from an understanding of political power in premodern China. In ancient time Chinese often used the celestial poles determined by the pole stars to determine the north-south direction axis of settlements.

This technique explains why Shang palaces at Xiaotun lie 10 east direction of due north. Similarly, in some cases, as Paul Wheatley observed, they bisected the angle between the directions of the rising and setting sun to find north direction. This technique provided the more precise alignments of the Shang walls at Yanshi.

Early Yanshao and Hongshan cultures provide the earliest evidence for feng shui. In those times, the fangshui practitioner Professor David Pankenier and his associates reviewed astronomical data for the time of the Banpo dwellings (4000 BCE) to show that the asterism Yingshi (Lay out the Hall, in the Warring States period and early Han era) corresponded to the sun's location at this time. Centuries before, the asterism Yingshi was known as Ding. It was used to indicate the appropriate time to build a capital city, according to the Shijing. Apparently an astronomical alignment ensured that Banpo village homes were sited for solar gain to have long term benefits to the whole mankind.

The positive vibrations and its benefits from the direction of east is valued globally. Even in India too, our ancestors used to give first preference to the direction of early sun rise, i.e. east.
