The first mention of Feng Shui comes from The Book of Burial (c. 300 BCE) where it says: "The energy that rides the wind stops at the edge of water and is retained." Just how Feng Shui developed across the world is hard to say. Traditional Feng Shui started as a joining of construction and astrology In Chinese the literal translation of Feng Shui is "Wind Water". Since the time of Xia, Capital cities in China have been constructed to the rules of feng shui. The rules for the construction of cities can be found in the Zhou-era Kaogong ji (Manual of Crafts). Rules for builders were codified in the Lu ban jing (Carpenter's Manual). In fact, it is only within the last 50 years that Feng Shui has actully been introduced indoors. An interesting note is that in 1949, feng shui became illegal in China. The Chinese Government then assigned a departement to oversee the practise of Feng Shui.
