Hidden Thoughts:

  • All the Emperors thought that this life is just a temporary life, when you passed away, you would live a real life. So what you needed in this life, you would need in the afterlife.
  • That’s why the first thing all the Emperors did when they first came throne is order Fengshui masters to go around the country to choose the perfect Fengshui places to build the royal tombs.
  • The royal tomb is like a journey of the Emperor from Sunrise to sunset. From this life to the afterlife.
