Luo Pan Chinese Compass

Luo Pan compassLuo Pan compasses range from 4 inches corresponding to the Four Seasons, 8 inches based on the Ba Gua and 12 inches for the Twelve Earthly Branches or animals of the Chinese zodiac. Some rings are paired and cannot not be used alone, and some carry important messages associated with timing.

Although looking extremely complex, in understanding the Five Elements we can quickly determine the auspiciousness of a direction through the use of the Twenty Four Mountains. Although most rings use the 5 Elements, some are based on the Twelve Palaces and show the strength of an element in a particular direction.

Types of Professional Luo Pan

Our Luo Pans are manufactured to the highest standard and are used by the most famous Feng Shui Masters in the world today. There are two main types of Luo Pan, namely the San He meaning triple combination, which is used at an elementary level and the advanced level of Luo Pan, the San Yuan, meaning three eras. There is also a combined Luo pan called a Zhong He. The smaller the Luo pan, the fewer rings it will have and therefore the easier it will be to use.

The Feng Shui Institute also offers training in the application and use of the Chinese compass through one of our feng shui accredited schools or via our online feng shui courses.

enter Luo pan type and size.

To compliment your Luo Pan, we also offer a range of accessories.

Luo pan with Viewer Enhancer (LVE)
luopan viewer

The LVE is our top of the range Luo Pan. Supplied with an optical device for surveying the site, it is the world's first "see through the lens" Luo Pan. It is also the world's most accurate Luo Pan for positioning water courses, entrances and all other cures and enhancements.

Compare the LVE with other positioning systems such as GPS; a satellite based system that uses software to find positions on earth. Publicly available GPS is accurate only to within 2 meters (the military version can pinpoint a position to within 1 meter). However, the LVE is accurate to within 15cm and therefore an essential tool in professional Feng Shui practice. See configuration

The Luo Pan Tripod can be used on even the most bumpy ground, ensuring you receive an accurate reading from your Luo Pan. It also offers protection from geopathic stress interference so there is less vibration in the needle. It can also be used to gain multiple observations from one position.
