Six Yang Waters Technique - Da Liu Ren (大六壬)

Da Liu Ren (大六壬) is an ancient form of Chinese divination which is based on Chinese Sexagenary Cycle (六十花甲). In English, Da Liu Ren (大六壬) is casually translated as - Six Yang Waters Technique.

Along with the divination methods Qi Men Dun Jia (奇门遁甲) and Tai Yi Shen Shu (太乙神数) — collectively known as the "Three Styles" (San shi 三式) — Da Liu Ren (大六壬) is considered in China to be one of the 3 highest forms of Chinese metaphysics.

Qi Men Dun Jia (奇门遁甲) is generally used for military action but, can be applied to competitive environments in making the right strategic decision in ever-changing situations. Tai Yee (太乙) is used to divine events that affect societies, such as earthquake, weather effects like hurricanes, massacres, natural disasters, etc.

Chinese Sexagenary Cycle (六十花甲) - A cycle of 60 years in Chinese Calender Term.

甲子 乙丑 丙寅 丁卯 戊辰 己巳 庚午 辛未 壬申 癸酉
甲戌 乙亥 丙子 丁丑 戊寅 己卯 庚辰 辛巳 壬午 癸未
甲申 乙酉 丙戌 丁亥 戊子 己丑 庚寅 辛卯 壬辰 癸巳
甲午 乙未 丙申 丁酉 戊戌 己亥 庚子 辛丑 壬寅 癸卯
甲辰 乙巳 丙午 丁未 戊申 己酉 庚戌 辛亥 壬子 癸丑
甲寅 乙卯 丙辰 丁巳 戊午 己未 庚申 辛酉 壬戌 癸亥

Ren (壬) represents the element of Yang Water (阳水). In the River Map - Hetu (河), it stated "天一生水,地六成之" literally translated as “Heavenly One creates water, Earthly Six produces it”. It means Water is the Mother of all things as it gives birth to Life. One plus the middle number 5, turn into 6, 6 turns to water. Therefore 6 Waters (六壬).

There is a saying of Tai Ji(太极): "One gives birth to Two, Two gives birth to Three, Three gives birth to Ten of Thousand Births of Life". Therefore, the study of Liu Ren(六壬之学) , also means the study of Tai-Ji (太极之学).

The divination of Da Liu Ren (大六壬) is entirely base on the Taoist thoughts of "Tai-Ji produces two forms, Two forms produce four phenomena, Four phenomena produce the eight trigrams - Bagua(八卦)".

The Liu Ren 六壬 celestial chart comprise a Heaven Plate (天盘 - tian pan), an Earth Plate (地盘 - di pan),Sun (in relation to the 12 earthly branch or positions on Earth) - 太阳(日缠), Moon, 28 Constellations, Year-Month-Day-Hour, Four Seasons etc of natural periodical changes of life, all of in which space-time relationship is met, and the nature of birth and death or clashes and growths/production of the elements which is the essence of life. For the positive change of the system/Tai Ji, in order to achieve unity and balance, which is the highest stage of "Heaven and Man as One" (天人合一).

The proficient Liu Ren 六壬 practitioner could simply use his own palms and fingers to represent one earth plate and one heaven plate. The divination can be literally performed with fingers hidden inside one's sleeves to predict the happening of upcoming events. Thus, a good mastery of such Liu Ren (六壬) allows the preparation in advance for any circumstances in the horizon. Besides, one could even trace back the past with amazing accuracy as well.

If you have mastered Da Liu Ren, the inquirer does not need to ask any question - 学会大六壬来人不用问. It really means a proficient Liu Ren 六壬 diviner ( and also a QMDJ 奇門遁甲 diviner) can give you the answer that You need, without you asking a question. This is because both systems cover the picture of all the things in the present and the future transformations.

Ultimately, mastering Divination/Forecasting skills are very useful not just for daily mundane matters but also help one to develop a strategic compass to guide one to gain the high grounds despite encountering challenging circumstances/situations and consistently enhance one’s chances of achieving greater rewarding results and favourable outcome.

Qi Men Dun Jia (奇门遁甲) is an ancient form of Chinese Divination. Along with Da Liu Ren (大六壬) and Tai Yi Shen Shu (太乙神数), it is one of the 3 China's highest metaphysical arts. Originally, Qi Men Dun Jia (奇门遁甲) was devised to help form military strategy and tactics.

The Origin of Qi Men Dun Jia (奇门遁甲)
4600 years ago, Yellow Emperor (黃帝) - 2697 BC to 2597 BC) was fighting against a war with Chi-You (蚩尤), who had the capability to summon the wind and rain. It was said that his head was as strong as copper and arms are like iron (铜头铁臂) and able to win any wars.

During the battle, Yellow Emperor knew he did not have the capability to defeat him. In desperation,Goddess Jiu Tian Xian Nu (九天玄女) sent him a Heavenly Book - Long Jia Shen Zhang (龙甲神章).

In addition to the method of building and making weapons, Long Jia Shen Zhang (龙甲神章) also documented the strategies of war and movement and deployment of soldiers.

At the same time, Feng Hou (风后) - The Prime Minister (宰相) Of Yellow Emperor, invented the the South Pointing Charot (指南车) and devised the Ba Zheng Tu (八阵图) - 8 Battle Arrays .

With the knowledge of Long Jia Shen Zhang (龙甲神章), the South Pointing Charot (指南车)  and  the battle formation of  Ba Zheng Tu (八阵图), Yellow Emperor was able to win the war against Chi-You (蚩尤).

Later on, Yellow Emperor put Feng Hou (风后) to task to reorganize Long Jia Shen Zhang (龙甲神章) into 13 Chapters Of Art of War (兵法十三章) , 12 Chapters of Solitary Virtual  Methods (孤虚法十二章) and 1080 Configurations of Qi Men Dun Jia (奇门遁甲一千零八十局).

The Powerful Techniques Of Qi Men Dun Jia (奇门遁甲)

Qi Men Dun Jia offers a map of hourly (Chinese Hour) that few other systems can match. Qi Men Dun Jia draws its power from the Post-Heaven Trigram or Ba Gua. A Qi Men Dun Jia chart will provide information with regards to Heaven, Earth and Man interaction (天时地利人和). If the chart shows support from Heaven, Earth and Man means it is an auspicious chart.

In the Qi Men Dun Jia Pan (Plate or Chart) consists of the following elements:
  • 九宫八卦图 (9 Palaces 8 Trigram chart)
  • 地盘 Di Pan (Earth Plate)
  • 十天干 (10 Heavenly Stems)
  • 八神 Ba Shen (8 Gods)
  • 天盘 Tian Pan (Heaven Plate)
  • 人盘 Ren Pan (Human Plate)
  • 驿马星 (Traveling Horse)
  • 空 (Emptiness)
Qi Men Dun Jia is based on astronomical observations, and consists of various aspects of Chinese metaphysics, including the doctrines of yin and yang, five elements, the eight trigrams, the ten Heavenly Stems and the twelve Earthly Branches, as well as the twenty-four solar terms.

The Qi Men Dun Jia cosmic board consists of a 3 × 3 magic square of nine palaces, which includes a Heaven and Earth pan, a spirit pan, eight gates and a star pan. The various symbols rotate around the palaces with each double hour, making a total of 1,080 different configurations of the Qi Men Dun Jia cosmic board. These "ju" (局) or situations are recycled four times per year, and are divided between the Yin and Yang halves of the year.

Each type of Qi Men Dun Jia divination carries its unique set of Use Spirits (yong shen). For example, medical divination relies mainly upon the Tian Rui Star, the Tian Xin Star, and Yi Qi. The task of the Qi Men Dun Jia analyst is to interpret and analyze the meanings of the symbols in relation to questions asked. Any Qi Men Dun Jia ju may be interpreted or analyzed to respond to a wide variety of questions, or to solve a multitude of problems.

Qi Men Dun Jia is rooted in non-western concepts of time, where time takes on qualities and characteristics, and one segment of time is not necessarily comparable with another. The analyst makes reference to the configuration of the cosmic board at the time when a question is posed, or for birth times of individuals or corporate entities, such as businesses or nations. At times, the same or very similar configurations of the cosmic board will appear in relation to the same series of questions or problems.

Origin Of Chinese Tomb Sweeping Day - Qingming Festival (清明节)

Qing Ming Festival(清明节) is a traditional Chinese festival on the 104th day after the winter solstice (or the 15th day from the Spring Equinox). Astronomically it is also a solar term - Qing Ming (清明). The Qingming festival falls on the first day of the fifth solar term, named Qing Ming (清明). Its name denotes a time for people to go outside and enjoy the greenery of springtime (踏青 Tàqīng, "treading on the greenery") and tend to the graves of departed ones.

Qing Ming (清明 - clear and bright) is the name of the 5th solar term of the traditional East Asian lunisolar calendar, which divides a year into 24 solar terms (节气). Qingming begins when the sun reaches the celestial longitude of 15° and ends when it reaches the longitude of 30°. It more often refers in particular to the day when the sun is exactly at the celestial longitude of 15°. In the Gregorian calendar, it usually begins around 4 April or 5 April and ends around 20 April.

Qing Ming Festival (清明节) is known by a number of names in the English language:
  • Chinese All Souls Day
  • Clear Bright Festival
  • Ancestors Day
  • Festival for Tending Graves
  • Grave Sweeping Day
  • Chinese Memorial Day
  • Tomb Sweeping Day
  • Spring Remembrance

The Origin of Qingming Festival (清明节)

Qingming Festival is the day when Chinese people visit the graves or burial grounds of their ancestors. The festival originated from Hanshi Day (寒食节, literally, Day with cold food only), a memorial day for Jie Zitui (介子推).

Jie Zitui died in 636 BC in the Spring and Autumn Period. He was one of many followers of Duke Wen of Jin (晉文公) before he became a duke. Once, during Wen's 19 years of exile, they had no food and Jie prepared some meat soup for Wen. Wen enjoyed it a lot and wondered where Jie had obtained the soup. It turned out Jie had cut a piece of meat from his own thigh to make the soup.

Wen was so moved he promised to reward him one day. However, Jie was not the type of person who sought rewards. Instead, he just wanted to help Wen to return to Jin to become king. Once Wen became duke, Jie resigned and stayed away from him. Duke Wen rewarded the people who helped him in the decades, but for some reason he forgot to reward Jie, who by then had moved into the forest with his mother.

Duke Wen went to the forest, but could not find Jie. Heeding suggestions from his officials, Duke Wen ordered men to set the forest on fire to force out Jie. However, Jie died in the fire. Feeling remorseful, Duke Wen ordered three days without fire to honour Jie's memory. The city where Jie died is still called Jiexiu (介休, literally "the place Jie rests forever").

Qingming has a tradition stretching back more than 2,500 years. Its origin is credited to the Tang Emperor Xuanzong in 732. Wealthy citizens in China were reportedly holding too many extravagant and ostentatiously expensive ceremonies in honor of their ancestors. Emperor Xuanzong, seeking to curb this practice, declared that respects could be formally paid at ancestors' graves only on Qingming. The observance of Qingming found a firm place in Chinese culture and continued since Ancient China

Celebration of Modern Day Qingming Festival (清明节)

The Qingming Festival is an opportunity for Chinese Folks to remember and honour their ancestors at grave sites. Young and old pray before the ancestors, sweep the tombs and offer food, tea, wine, chopsticks, joss paper accessories, and/or libations to the ancestors.

Despite having no holiday status, the overseas Chinese communities in Southeast Asian nations, such as those in Singapore and Malaysia, take this festival seriously and observe its traditions faithfully. Some Qingming rituals and ancestral veneration decorum observed by the oversea Chinese in Malaysia and Singapore can be dated back to Ming and Qing dynasties, as the oversea communities were not affected by the Cultural Revolution in Mainland China.

Qingming in Malaysia is an elaborate family function or a clan feast (usually organized by the respective clan association) to commemorate and honour recently deceased relatives at their grave sites and distant ancestors from China at home altars, clan temples or makeshift altars in Buddhist or Taoist temples.

For the oversea Chinese community, the Qingming festival is very much a family celebration and, at the same time, a family obligation. They see this festival as a time of reflection and to honour and give thanks to their forefathers. Overseas Chinese normally visit the graves of their recently deceased relatives on the nearest weekend to the actual date. According to the ancient custom, grave site veneration is only feasible ten days before and after the Qingming Festival. If the visit is not on the actual date, normally veneration before Qingming is encouraged.

The Qingming Festival in Malaysia and Singapore normally starts early in the morning by paying respect to distant ancestors from China at home altars. This is followed by visiting the graves of close relatives in the country. Traditionally, the family will burn spirit money and paper replicas of material goods such as cars, homes, phones and paper servants.

In Chinese culture, it is believed that people still need all of those things in the afterlife. After the ancestor worship at the grave site, the whole family or the whole clan feast on the food and drink they brought for the worship either at the site or in nearby gardens in the memorial park, signifying family reunion with the ancestors.

Cold Food Festival (寒食节)
The Cold Food Festival or Hanshi Festival (寒食节) is a traditional Chinese holiday celebrated for three consecutive days starting the day before the Qingming Festival. It is celebrated in China as well as the nearby nations of Korea and Vietnam. At this time of year, the sky becomes clearer and buds sprout in the field. Farmers sow various seeds and supply water to their rice paddies.

Legend has it that Chong'er (重耳), a prince of Jin, endured many hardships while he fled around the warring states. Once, in order to help the prince who was tormented by hunger, Jie Zhitui (介之推; also called Jie Zitui (介子推) cut off the flesh from his thigh and offered it to the prince for sustenance.

Later, when Chong'er became Duke Wen of Jin (晉文公), he ordered a search for Jie Zhitui who had gone into hiding in the remote mountains with his mother. Jie Zhitui had no political ambitions and felt ashamed to work with his hypocritical fellows, hence refused invitation of the Duke. Chong'er ordered the mountains to be burned down in order to force Zhitui out of hiding. Unfortunately Zhitui did not give in and the fire ended up killing Zhitui and his mother.

Filled with remorse, Chong'er ordered that each year during these three days the setting of fire is forbidden – all food was to be consumed cold. Therefore the Festival is thus named. In Jiexiu City of the Shanxi Province, where Zhitui died, locals still remember this tradition clearly. But even for them the tradition of eating cold food is no longer actually practiced.

In reality, the true source of the Cold Food Festival started from the ancient tradition of setting fire by rubbing wood pieces together and the tradition of lighting new fires. Due to the change of seasons and the change in the type of wood available, the ancient practice was to change the type of fire-starter-wood used from season to season. Fire is lighted anew upon the start of each season. Before the new fire is officially started no one is allowed to light a fire. This was an important event during that time. The traditionally practiced activities during the Cold Food Festival includes the visitation of ancestral tombs, cock-fighting, playing on swings, beating out blankets (to freshen them), tug-of-war, etc. The practice of visiting ancestral tombs is especially ancient.

In China ancestral worship used to be practiced during the time of the Cold Food Festival. It was later moved to coincide with the Qingming Festival. The Cold Food Festival began to decline after the Tang Dynasty (618-907) and gradually assimilated by the Qingming Festival, also known as Tomb-Sweeping Day.

Korea - Hansik (한식)
In Korea, it is called Hanshik (한식) , literally meaning "cold food," and is a traditional Korean holiday. In the modern version of Hansik, people welcome the warm weather thawing the frozen lands. On this day, rites to worship ancestors are observed early in the morning, and the family visits their ancestors' tombs to tidy up.

Falling on the 105th day after the winter solstice (April 5 by the Gregorian calendar, except in leap years). At this time of year, the sky becomes clearer and buds sprout in the field. Farmers sow various seeds and supply water to their rice paddies. The custom of eating cold food on this day is believed to originate from a Chinese legend, but recently this custom has disappeared.

Since this day coincides with Arbor Day, public cemeteries are crowded with visitors planting trees around the tombs of their ancestors.

Vietnam - Tết Hàn Thực
In Vietnam, where it is called Tết Hàn Thực, the Cold Food Festival is celebrated by Vietnamese people in the northern part of the country on the third day of the third lunar month, but only marginally. People cook glutinous rice balls called bánh trôi on that day but the holiday's origins are largely forgotten, and the fire taboo is also largely ignored.
