What is Dunjia? Qi Men Dun Jia (or Qimendunjia) is one of the three most powerful divination methods, the other two being -Tai Yee and Liu Ren. These divination methods are used to discern both good and bad luck in relation to time and space (direction). Tai Yee is used to divine events that affect societies, such as earthquake, weather effects like hurricanes, massacres, natural disasters, etc. Qi Men is generally used for military action but, can be applied to competitive environments in making the right strategic decision in ever-changing situations. Liu Ren is mostly used for divining general daily events that affect our own daily lives. Qi usually means mysterious or strange, but in this context it means valuable or holy. Men means a gate, and Dun means hidden or escaped (to make hidden). Jia is the first of the ten Heavenly stems and is considered the most sacred in this method. These three oracles use very special charts to divine and give conclusions. They all use Heavenly stems, Earthly branches, He Tu, Luo Shu, Eight Trigrams, Emblematic elements and divine number, etc. and most of these principles are explained below. Dunjia can be divided into Year School Dunjia, Month School Dunjia, Day School Dunjia and Time School Dunjia in terms of time. In terms of reasoning methods it should be divided into Line-Up Palace Dunjia and Jump-inPalace Dunjia.

Here we introduce Time School and Line-Up Palace Dunjia
People may ask when, how and why Dunjia came into practice. Nowadays many people believe Dunjia originated from military arrangements on the battle field and such statements have gained wide approval in scholarly circles. In the ancient book "The Song from Old Fishing Man" carried the following story: Emperor XuanYuan fought a fierce battle with Shi You for many years. In a dream he dreamt Heaven gave him an oracle and XuanYuan then paid his respects upon a sacrificial platform and practised such arts which soon brought success. He ordered his military man Feng Hou to write down these arts and this was the beginning of Dunjia.

The popularity of this method spread far and wide from the late Spring and Autumn to the Warring States period - a time when many states fought endless battles to expand their territories. Also Sun Zi's book The Art of War carried similar information concerning the theory of Dunjia. Yet, most people didn't understand the exact meaning until now. In Three-kingdom Times the famous military counsellor Zhu Ge Liang applied Eight Trigram or Ba Gua Arrangement on the battle field and won huge success. As a result, the book the "Three Kingdoms" is necessary reading for intelligence experts and politicians around the world.

In Dun Jia (or Dunjia) theory, we use a kind of direction chart called Pan, this is drawn as a square and then divided into nine blocks ( 3 x 3. eight directions plus the centre ). In each directional block, one of the eight gates is positioned. We put away Jia (because of its holiness) and use the other nine stems to put them into Dun Jia Pan chart at first, and after several process of making, Jia comes into the Pan chart from one of the eight gates. And that's why this method is called Qi Men Dun Jia. Later due to the wide application of Dunjia this divination approach gradually broke its own
