If in the Compass School the Bagua placement is determined by the compass direction of the main door, in the BTB School the directions are not being taken into consideration. No matter which direction the main door faces, the BTB feng shui school bagua will always be placed in the same way, with the center of the facing wall being considered as the Fame & Reputation area (which is South area in the Compass feng shui school.)
The founder of BTB School, Professor Lin Yun, is often referred to as His Holiness Grandmaster Professor Thomas Lin-Yun, as he is also the founder and supreme leader of the contemporary Black Sect Tantric Buddhism at its fourth stage.
According to followers of the BTB School of feng shui, his teachings are comprehensive, philosophical, and spiritual. BTB Feng Shui School incorporates the essence of Confucianism, Taoism, Yin-Yang philosophy, Eclecticism, Exoteric Buddhism, Esoteric Buddhism, I-Ching, Theory of Ch'i, holistic healing, feng shui, and folkloric studies.(YunLinTemple.org)
Even though the BTB School of feng shui is often ridiculed by many, especially by the traditional Chinese feng shui practitioners, the school has many merits. A well trained BTB feng shui practitioner knows how to work with the energy of the space and often uses the so called secret cures, mantras, specific meditations and other techniques to bring about the desired change.
