Bagua is the energy map of Feng Shui and has ancient origin. It was
originally known as pa-k'ua. Over the years, it has changed to bagua.
The map, or chart, is a system of trigrams, which consists of solid
and broken lines, with a mirror in the center. It was devised by the
Chinese King Wen, around three thousand years back. Ba-Gua describes
the different changes taking place in the universe. When examined,
it resembles an eight point compass, with a particular trigram
linked with each direction.
The solid lines on the Pa Kua denote Yang, while the broken lines
symbolize Yin. The trigram with two or more broken lines is
considered Yin and the one with two or more solid lines is
considered Yang. The Yin trigrams are linked with receptive energy
and stillness. The Yan trigrams are related with expansive energy
and action. The basic principle behind trigrams is the Chinese
assumption that if they knew how things changed with time, they
could predict future. This forms the foundation of I-Ching, the Book
Bagua brings luck and prosperity along with positive energy. It is
octagonal in shape and is placed on the main door of the house. The
map/chart is usually encased in a wooden frame and is about four to
six inches in measurement. Bagua is usually placed on the outside,
at the entry points of negative energy, to ward off any bad luck.

quality Pa Kua to maximize the result.
