His Holiness Grandmaster Thomas Lin Yun (1932-2010)
Deborah Gee’s Mentor-Teacher
Deborah studied under H.H. Grandmaster Thomas Lin Yun for for 25 years, “There’s a Chinese expression I learned from Grandmaster Lin Yun, Do not forget the source from which you drink. I have been blessed to have him as my Feng Shui master and spiritual guide. It is his teachings that I have been honored to share with my clients, in my seminars and television programs.”
H.H. Grandmaster Thomas Lin Yun “transitioned” on August 11, 2010 to begin his “next life.” He was considered a “living Buddha” with infinite compassion for helping others. “I believe he accomplished his mission,” says Deborah, “And has now returned to the realm of Buddhas. Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle. And the light of that candle will not be shortened. H.H. Grandmaster Lin has lit so many lives with his kindness, compassion and understanding. His candle will forever burn brightly in my heart.”
A distinguished philosopher and Buddhist leader, H.H. Grandmaster Lin Yun was one of the world’s foremost authorities on Feng Shui. The PBS show, “Feng Shui: Creating Environments for Success and Well-Being,” is based on his teachings and is the first major TV program on the subject for a Western audience. H.H. Grandmaster Lin Yun used Feng Shui to help heads-of-state and corporate executives raise profits and lower stress for more than fifty years. As spiritual leader of Tibetan Tantric Buddhism of the Black Sect, he met with world figures including the Pope, the Dalai Lama and Charles, Prince of Wales.
Born in Beijing in 1932, Tibetan lamas “discovered” H.H. Grandmaster Lin Yun’s spiritual gifts when he was six. They took him under their tutelage at the famous Yon-he Buddhist Temple. For nine years, they taught him Black Sect Tantric Buddhism and later Feng Shui. At seventeen, he left China for Taiwan and continued his studies with Buddhist scholars.
Trained Practitioners Around The World
A household name in Taiwan and Hong Kong, H.H. Grandmaster Lin Yun was the founder of Black Sect Tantric Buddhist Feng Shui, sometimes referred to as the “Modern School of Feng Shui” because it adapts this ancient practice to modern living. Black Sect Feng Shui incorporates science, architecture, environmental design, psychology and other contemporary disciplines in its analysis.
H.H. Grandmaster Lin Yun’s teachings were comprehensive, philosophical and spiritual, a synthesis of Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism, Feng Shui, I-Ching and folklore. He taught thousands of students in Asia, Europe, Latin America, Australia, and the United States. He was largely responsible for its popularity in America and trained many of its Feng Shui practitioners.
Philosopher and Professor
A distinguished philosopher and Buddhist leader, H.H. Grandmaster Lin Yun lectured at universities throughout the world, including Harvard, Yale, Oxford, universities of Munich, Beijing, and Scandinavia. A lifetime of study and meditation infused him with profound spiritual insight and abilities.
Author of four best-selling Feng Shui books, “Interior Design with Feng Shui,” written over 20 years ago, is still considered the bible of Feng Shui. Featured in the PBS program, “Creating Environments for Success and Well-being,” H.H. Grandmaster Lin Yun explained, “Video, a twentieth century invention, is an excellent way to show people how Feng Shui works. People can actually see and feel the ‘before-and-after’ differences Feng Shui can bring to homes.”
