Interview with Grand Master Tan Khoon Yong

In this edition of Interview with a Master we sit down and chat with professional Feng Shui Researcher and Practitioner, as well as author and founder of the Way On Net Group Pte Ltd, Grand Master Tan Khoon Yong.

Grand Master Tan Khoon Yong, who was born in Singapore, established Way Chinese Geomancy Centre at the mere age of 30 in 1984. He provides professional feng shui services and continues to research on feng shui. Over the last 28 years, he has successfully promoted his practice of feng shui to an internationally renowned hub of geomancy services and conducted more than 1000 seminars worldwide, breathing life into the age-old theories of feng shui.

Way Chinese Geomancy Centre was privatised to become Way Geomancy Pte Ltd in 1997 and earned the prestige of being the first geomancy consultancy firm to be awarded the coveted ISO 9001:2000 certification. A bilingual feng shui portal, www.WayOnNet.com was set up in 2000, which was a world first. In 2001, he merged all 5 subsidiaries and established Way OnNet Group Pte Ltd after internal corporate restructuring.

A brand name is not only a logo; it also represents the spirit and culture of the business. Only through perseverance, can a brand name stand the test of time and establish itself firmly in the industry. In 2006, Way OnNet Group Pte Ltd launched its new business subsidiary, Emblems of Fortune, hoping to realize the ultimate dream of becoming an internationally recognized brand.

Grand Master Tan wields a powerful pen and has published many books such as Light of Liu Li, Emblems of Fortune: Luck, Prosperity, Longevity, Happiness and Wealth, Essentials of Four Pillars of Destiny, Hottest Feng Shui Tips for Your Home, The Secrets of the Five Dragons, Hottest Destiny Tips for Your Life.  Apart from annual publications of the Way Bilingual Almanac and Receive Divine Wealth series, his latest work is Four Pillars of Destiny (Intermediate).

Learned and gifted in numerous areas, Grand Master Tan draws inspirations from the philosophies of feng shui for poetic expressions, and published literary works like Xin Guan and Feng Ya Song.

Being the Singapore representative participating in the International Feng Shui Convention from 2004 to 2011, Grand Master Tan not only shared his knowledge regarding the converging theories of diversified feng shui schools of thought, he also took a bold approach in presenting his global political forecast for the next 20 years. The attendees marveled at the optimistic direction and prospects, which feng shui is embarking upon as an international practice and faith. He is currently the Vice President of the International Feng Shui Association (IFSA).

Conferred the title of PBM by the President in 1999, Grand Master Tan's talent and broad knowledge has earned him accolades from several prestigious institutions. He is the Advisor to the Department of Philosophy in Peking University and Vice Chairman of the Organisation for Promoting Global Civilisation. He is also serving as an honorary committee member at the Singapore Association of Writers. Grand Master Tan also became a 20th generation disciple of the Quan Zhen Hua Shan Sect in China by Reverend Min Zhi Ting; he is currently serving as the President of the Singapore Quan Zhen Hua Shan Sect.

Despite his fame and accomplishments, Grand Master Tan remains a humble man. He frequently remarks, "The study of feng shui is a ceaseless pursuit for humanity that spans time and space. Therefore, we must spare no efforts in the lifelong quest for its infinite wisdom".www.wayonnet.com 

  1. How did you first become interested in Feng Shui? Please share some of your path of learning with us.
The practice of feng shui was passed down from generation to generation in my family. I learned under both my grandfather and father, with my grandfather as the main teacher. I followed him when he went for feng shui assessments and learned from there. Now that I recall those times, it was really tough training. After my grandfather passed away, I continued to work hard and did research on my own, reading countless feng shui books to further my knowledge.
 
There is no shortcut in learning feng shui. One must work hard and put in lots of time and effort. New problems will crop up from time to time and one must be prepared to devise new solutions for them.

  1. Many Feng Shui consultants feel that the further they study Feng Shui the more confused they become. Did you experience this during your own journey, and if so how did you overcome it?
I would advise the aspiring feng shui practitioners to learn with a selective and prudent mind. Obstacles are definite along the learning path of feng shui. For me, I’d press on and try to overcome them with deeper research. With this, I’d progress further and gain more knowledge instead of confusion.I would advise the aspiring feng shui practitioners to learn with a selective and prudent mind.
