Sanlao, also known as Laoxi, is located in Meijiao Town, Xingguo County, Jiangxi Province. It is the birthplace of Chinese Fengshui culture. This is an ancient village known for Yang Gong Fengshui. The cradle of feng shui masters”.
Laoxi’s topography, spreading stories and cultural characteristics are very unique. It has made people curious and fascinated since ancient times. Especially in recent decades, San Lao has attracted many Yi scholars and feng shui enthusiasts to explore the secrets. .
The magical Tai Chi picture village-Lao Xi, also known as San Lao.
The landforms of Laoxi are strange, which can give people a sense of harmony between nature and man, and the natural way of Taoism. There is a rare oval basin in the hilly area of Laoxi, surrounded by mountains on all sides, with heavy ridges and ridges, surrounded by serene stream springs, surrounded by mists, purple qi rising, and auspicious signs. At the entrance of the village, there is indeed a wonderful sight of pinnacles, commonly known as “compass stone”. As soon as you enter the village, you will see a row of pinnacles. The gate is shaped like a compass pointer and points to the south of the village. Isn’t Laoxi a natural “compass”? The “compass stone” and the “umbrella tree” behind the village, as well as the “wrapped stone”, also called compasses, umbrellas and parcels, are natural and vivid! It is no wonder that Dr. Jin Ziguanglu (that is, the national teacher) at the end of the Tang Dynasty, Yang Junsong, would say that such a geographic shape will give rise to Mr. Geography from generation to generation.
The Lao River is surrounded by mountain peaks, and the four temples of Donghua, Nanji, Xizhu, and Beidou stand majestically in the four directions of the village’s south, east, north and west, which play a role in filling the gaps and making them more in harmony with the “yin and yang” in the ancient book of changes. “Gossip Picture” is incomparably mysterious. If you climb high and look into the distance, look around, the entire Laoxi terrain will have a panoramic view, like a vivid and natural figure-the “Tai Chi Picture”, it is really magical, people can’t help but stick out their thumbs and admire nature. Made in heaven. What is even more amazing is that the unique Yanggong Temple of Zeng and Liao’s two families in Laoxi was built right at the yin and yang fisheye of this “Tai Chi Picture”. Both Yanggong Temple have couplets. The Zeng’s Yanggong Temple is simple and solemn. The couplets on both sides of the gate: “Learning the heavens and the people, the scholars, the meritorious denominations of the world”; Thirty-eight generations of Deze will live forever”, “Books have images to understand the news and reach the heavens, and the good fortune is invisible to the avenues.” . The Liao’s Yanggong Temple is gorgeous and dignified. The first couplet outside the shrine, “The bamboo sticks are green, thousands of miles of rivers and mountains return to the sticks, the green bag is a wonderful day, and the stars are hidden in the middle of the man.” The story, and the second version of “sweeping lines for elephants can move the stars for a day, avoiding evil and seeking good luck is the gods of all nations” is said to have been written by the prime minister of the Southern Song Dynasty Wen Tianxiang.
These two ancient Fengshui ancestors, Yanggong Temple, are the most authoritative and sacred places of Chinese Fengshui culture, revealing that Lao Xi is the place where Yang Gong’s Fengshui inherits and develops. Since ancient times, the scholars of the Book of Changes in the land of China have worked hard, traveling thousands of miles into Laoxi to worship the ancestor Yang Gong, looking for the fairy relics of Yang Gong, and exploring the mystery of Laoxi.
Wenfeng in the east of the village is beautiful and beautiful, like a dancing phoenix; in the south of the village, the peaks and ridges are majestic, shaped like a heavenly horse. The truth is that the four beasts are available, the five gods are sufficient, and the spirit of the earth overflows. Therefore, there is a prosperous humanity and a prosperous humanity. Therefore, Sanlao Village has a large population. Then became a giant, for inherent reasons.
The two crooked rivers in the village converge into an “S” shape and traverse the whole village. The hardworking and wise people of Laoxi have been kept for generations. The villagers say that the water in these two small rivers is different in temperature, whether in summer or winter, and they are called “Yinyang River”. There are 108 ponds in the village, and seven ponds with different shapes, named “Seven Star Ponds”. As far as the whole village is concerned, it is said that the “Seven Star Pond” has a special role of accumulating gas and transforming evil spirits and helping people in Wangwang.
In Laoxi, there are both supernatural craftsmanship created by nature and wonderful craftsmanship meticulously constructed by great craftsmen. The two are in perfect harmony. Where he is, where he can see, Laoxi reveals the wonderful realm of the unity of nature and man everywhere, and also shows the harmony of man and earth everywhere. It’s so mysterious and unpredictable, very strange!
Mysterious Thousand Years’ Story-Yang Gong retired in Lao River to pass on Feng Shui.
People are familiar with the Taoist three holy Yuanshi Tianzun, Lingbao Tianzun and Moral Tianzun. The three sages of geography, Yang Yunsong, Zeng Wenyuan and Liao Jinjing (namely Liao Yu), have been passed down through the ages in Laoxi. Laoxi is not only peculiar in topography, but also has a thousand-year legendary Fengshui story-Yang Gong secluded in Laoxi to teach his apprentices and founded the Gan School Fengshui. Therefore, the local cultural characteristics of Laoxi are unique and unique.
The whereabouts and feng shui works of Yang Gong’s master and apprentice are scattered to the folk like broken jade and scattered beads, confusing and full of legends. Therefore, the folk legends about “saving the poor” Yang Gong are inconsistent, and the opinions are divided. In Laoxi, the legend about Yang Gong spreading geographical geomantic omen is unanimous and true.
The history of Yanggong Fengshui culture in Laoxi can be traced back to the Tang Dynasty. Tang Wei, when the state teacher Jin Ziguanglu doctor Yang Yunsong (named Yi, titled “Poverty Relief”) set off from Chang’an City in Northwest China, traveled all the way, wading through mountains and rivers, and came to Jiangxi after untold hardships. He accidentally discovered Laoxi (namely San Lao), a place that approximates the shape of the Yin-Yang Taiji diagram, was chosen as the treasured land of Fengshui. Gong Yang has a unique eye, sees through the mystery of the heaven and earth, and asserts that this is the best place to inherit and carry forward his Feng Shui culture forever, so he lives here with his disciples Zeng Wenyuan and Liao Jinjing. Yang Gong lives in Tai Chi, and Zeng Gong and Liao Gong occupy the position of two rites. Sooner or later, he will follow Yang Gong and practice the gifts of his disciples. Master and apprentice living together is more conducive to communication and inheritance, so Zeng Gong and Liao Gong can inherit Yang Gongzhen’s inheritance and pass it on to future generations. Laoxi is located in southern Jiangxi, where Yang Gong founded the situational Fengshui, so Laoxi Yang Gong Fengshui is also called “Gan School Fengshui”. “Gan School Fengshui” created a precedent for Fengshui culture in southern China.
The history book of Liaoxi records: “Gong Yang and his disciples wandered around here, watching the mountain-shaped gathering, the dragon is strange, the public is called the disciple, this is the place where our generations found their lives. Bu Xia Chuangju. Yuxian Longzhang’s beauty, entrepreneurship and Shang, the two surnames are Shiju, distributed in the position of Liangyi, Yang Gong lives in Tai Chi, and three shelters are built as huts, and Sanliao got its name.” At that time, Yang Gong personally selected the site for Zeng Wenyuan’s house, and wrote the “House Theory Clamping Notes” that has been passed down through the ages, and the criticism was accurate. The “clamp note” is still there today:
The landscape of Laoxi is not easy to see, and there are good peaks and mountains on the four sides.
Jiashang Luojing Mountain rises, and the northwestern Lianmu responds.
In the south, Tianma water flows to the east, and cyclists are worshiping.
Gen Yinxiang, a centipede unearthed, was prosperous in the middle of ten generations.
Today, this place is Erju, worshipping the imperial capital for generations.
The first generation of money and food did not flourish, only because of ugly punishment.
Middle-aged wealth and wealth are thunderous, and Jiamu is cultivated by hydroponics.
Tuma is rich and noble, and dog is in the top position.
Today, this note is Fu Wenyuan, and the thirty-eight generations of official positions are evident.
San Lao is the most famous of the “Eight Scenic Spots in Lao River”, which was originally named by Gong Yang. According to the ancient genealogy of Zeng’s “Liaoxi Wencong”, the “Eight Sceneries” were named by Gong Yang himself. He told his disciple Zeng Gong: “Although the Lao River is remote, the mountains and rivers are particularly good. Panyu monolithic rock, admire the late green of the southern forest, watch the clouds in the East Valley, watch the evening photos of the West Mountain, listen to the fishermen’s songs of Beipu, send reveries to the Linfen Water Dragon Pool, lay the dragon ball to understand the mystery, and cultivate the south acre to nourish Eating, sucking the dragon spring and cooking tea, the rest of my life will have endless happiness, it can be said to be content, and death without regrets.”
Unique Culture——Liaoxi Yanggong Fengshui Culture
It is precisely because of the appearance of Yang Gong’s master and apprentice and the inheritance of Yang Gong’s Fengshui that the unique style of Laoxi Yanggong Fengshui culture is established, which is deeply rooted in the magical soil of Laoxi.
Laoxi Yanggong Fengshui culture is quite magical. Its magic lies not only in its long history, but also in its breadth and depth, in its infinite meaning, and even more in its practical experience, which can withstand the turmoil of the world. Therefore, it can endure thousands of years of unfailing, spreading across the world without end, and it has been passed down to this day. It has rooted and sprouted everywhere in Laoxi and even in various parts of China.

Many masters in Laoxi stayed in the folk works, ranging from the capital to the folks, without statistics, and it is difficult to describe them all. As far as the three officials are concerned, there are countless examples of works with amazing results. For example, the ancient ancestral halls in Laoxi and the ancient tombs in Yanggainao reflect the ingenuity of Yanggong’s Fengshui theory and the effectiveness of practice, so they all have far-reaching influence.
Yanggong’s Fengshui theory and Yanggong’s practice proved that Laoxi culture occupies an important historical position in the field of Chinese Yixue culture, and proved that Laoxi Fengshui culture is an indispensable part of Chinese Guoxue culture.
(2) Laoxi Fengshui Zeng and Liao families are equally famous, and the masters of the country have come out in large numbers in successive dynasties.
Yanggong lived in seclusion and started the school, and there were many masters of Laoxi’s dynasties, and produced many masterpieces of Fengshui. The effects are magical, confusing, mysterious and unpredictable, highlighting the unique charm of Laoxi culture.

Geographical geomantic omen has prevailed in Laoxi until now. Ye Mao has deep roots, outstanding people, and a thousand-year-old village. The technique of Feng Shui has been passed down from generation to generation. Due to the recruitment of the imperial court and the needs of the people, the talents of the past dynasties have gathered together, and the teachers of the country have come out in large numbers.

Among them, the emperor directly entrusted the emperor to the Qin Tianjian Lingtai Ph.D. 36 people. For more than a thousand years, the splendid Laoxi landscape has nurtured thousands of descendants of Fengshui and geography.

With their superb feng shui techniques, they benefited the people and established a good reputation.

This indisputable fact confirms the fact that Yang Gong stated that “there is a compass suction stone in front of him when he was in Laoxi more than a thousand years ago.” After that, there was an umbrella wrapped around him, and he said that Mr. Geography from generation to generation” can be said to be approved first and then accurate.
