The Feng Shui world lost one of its best-known Masters, Professor Thomas Lin Yun of Taiwan and Berkeley, California, on August 11, 2010.
The Professor was one of the first to bring Feng Shui to the West over 25 years ago.
He is perhaps best known as the co-author with Sarah Rossbach of the earliest Feng Shui books in English, including Feng Shui: The Chinese Art Of Placement from 1983.
Professor Lin Yun influenced my life because many of my teachers learned Feng Shui directly from him.
Here are a few excerpts from the very moving message we received from Crystal Chu, CEO of the Yun Lin Temple in Berkeley.
“With deepest sorrow, I am very reluctant to let you know that the saddest thing has finally come upon us. Our beloved great teacher, His Holiness Grandmaster Professor Lin Yun left us yesterday….
“Some of us chanted at his bedside to pray that his Ch’i would be received by the Buddha in the Pure Land.
“One of the messages I received during the chanting was from His Holiness, and he said: ‘I have taught you more than enough, now is the time for you to go on by yourselves.’”
The Professor will be sadly and sorely missed by the entire Feng Shui community.
