Master Yun Speaks: Launch of Compilation of Theses Awarded Lotus on Water Gold Medal and Book Prizes

I shall not be too assuming to discuss profound doctrines in front of learned people here today. So I share with you some small stories.

When I was studying in the university, my female classmates often rushed out of the classrooms to cry. It was because they could not understand the full content of discussion between the lecturer and I.

And when I sat for my exams, all my male classmates did one thing, they wore checkered shirts like I did. They thought that was my secret lucky charm to do so well in my Chinese papers. No. It was just because I loved checkered clothes the most at that time.


A professor asked me to help my classmates, especially the juniors in their studies. I said: “Why do you ask me to do something so unpopular?”

The professor said: “Think about it. When you graduate, no one will ask you for your marks. They will only ask you which university you graduated from. If your juniors are outstanding, so will the brand of your certificate, which you have spent so many years to receive.” Thus I spent much time creating study groups in my university life.

Fortune takes a meandering path, I did not continue my career in the academic world. However, I have seen NTU rise in ranking from position 71st in the world in year 2006, to position 11th in the world, and 1st in Asia, this year.

This is the result of the hard work of the teachers and students. As an NTU alumni, I too share the glory. Thank you for sharing with me the glory which I have not worked for.

Albeit, I have never forgotten the words of my professor. I always hope I can do something for the NTU Chinese studies students.


In my opinion, in ancient China, the speed of knowledge spreading was slow, so emphasis of examinations was on the retention of knowledge.

In the modern world, the speed of information sharing is exceedingly swift. There is an overwhelming amount of information everywhere. So the emphasis of tests should be on the discernment of information. Something which we call “critical thinking skill“.

And I think that the best way to develop critical thinking skill is through thesis writing and not examinations. Thus, Lotus on Water Book prizes and Gold Medal Award are to be given to students who have written the best thesis papers, and NOT to students who have scored highest in their examinations.

And...we hope that freshmen will learn from the good models in thesis writing right from the beginning, instead of hurrying through in their last years. This is the reason to why we publish the compilation of the thesis papers that have won the awards, and we launch it today. Hopefully, the thesis papers of our graduate students would improve one year after another.

Whether it is academic studies, enterprises, or living daily lives, “critical thinking skill” is vitally important. The world is filled with too much naysaying that's selfishly emotional.

For example, a popular saying in the social media: “You are not earning enough because you are working for others. When you get back home, you are too tired to do any financial planning for yourself.” If this statement were true, housewives should be the richest people in the world.

Another negative and harmful saying: “Just make enough for yourself, do not be too greedy in your life.” If everybody thinks likewise, who is going to pay enough taxes to build the nation?

These selfish and negative words should never be on the lips of NTU graduates, if not it just reflects the smallness and triviality of our minds and our hearts. And we should not waste away the time and efforts that our teachers, our educational institutions and our nation have invested on us.

I have shared the words of my professor to you, in order to remind you and myself that we as individuals can bring values to the  team, and the team can bring values to our individual lives.

The team includes not just our own families, but also our schools, companies, enterprises, nations and the world.

If you win the awards of Lotus on Water Book prizes and Gold Medals, please never say “enough”! Please win greater, grander, prettier awards for yourself and for your team.

If you do not win the Lotus on Water Book prizes and Gold Awards, please never say “it’s alright”. Please win greater, grander and prettier awards for yourself and your team.

On the 27th and 28th of September, renowned Southeast Asian fengshui master and artist, Master Yun Long Zi, held his fengshui art exhibition at Barcelona’s La Pedrera-Casa Milà. Close to 200 representatives from various governments, consular corps and business circles, attended the opening ceremony on the 27th. With them were His Royal Highness Prince Tesso Sisowath of Cambodia and His Excellency Dr Julio Jeldres, Counsellor to the Cabinet of His Majesty the King of Cambodia.

Master Yun Long Zi is the sixth generation fengshui master in his family, renowned in Southeast Asia. Inheriting the wisdom and knowledge from his predecessors, Master Yun founded Lotus on Water Feng Shui Gallery in 2006. Lotus on Water offers authentic and elegant fengshui jewellery, collected even by royalties, transforming and prospering lives of its passionate and large following.

High Royal Highness Prince Tesso Sisowath delivered the opening speech at the launch of Master Yun’s Dancing with Prosperity and Elegance art exhibition. After that, Master Yun took to the stage to welcome all guests and to express his appreciations. Sharing his family’s history with fengshui, he said: “I’m the sixth generation fengshui master of my family and my ancestral home is in Dapu of Guangdong while my maternal grandfather was a Hakka living in Fujian… Our family’s fengshui philosophy focuses on hope, we believe that it is human nature to be hopeful be it during adversity or good times. This is a valuable human trait and this is something my family’s fengshui philosophy focuses on.”

Master Yun's painting under the light

Having practised art since young, Master Yun is also a painter. His fengshui paintings are inspiring creations of celebration, using real gold and silver, a true hallmark of prosperity and elegance. Currently, Master Yun’s fengshui paintings are printed on the packaging of Laurent-Perrier’s La Cuvée, and on the label of Grand Siècle. Master Yun also invented the method of using champagne in his fengshui paintings, the first and only one in the history of art. For his contribution to Champagne, Master Yun was inducted into “Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne” in 2018.

Collectors of Master Yun’s fengshui paintings include His Majesty King Norodom Sihamoni, Her Majesty the Queen Mother Norodom Monineath, Her Royal Highness Princess Norodom Buppha Devi, His Royal Highness Prince Sisowath Tesso, His Royal Highness Prince Sisowath Veakchirauuddh, of Cambodia. Ms Alexandra Pereyre de Nonancourt, owner of Laurent-Perrier champagne, and Mr Manuel Rabaté, director of Louvre museum, are also collectors of Master Yun's fengshui paintings.

Speaking of his paintings, Master Yun shared: “Europe’s most famous artists are Picasso and Van Gogh, very strong-willed individuals, which is a trait I share and something I try to bring across in my artworks… I practise fengshui that’s been passed down generations in my family and there’s this saying that life is art and art is life, hence, I think art should reflect one’s life philosophy. Feng shui is part of my family’s belief and philosophy, so it has naturally made its way into my art. 

Close to a hundred of Master Yun’s paintings were on display, including "Spring Spreading like Blooming Wings", "Great Tidings", "Wishes like Wild Celebrations" and "The Immense Attraction". Peacock is the subject of most of these works and Master Yun used special paint that allowed these works to flow under ultraviolet light. Besides creating an aura of wealth, strength and happiness, it symbolises that there is always light in the darkness” and that “there is always sunshine after the storm”.

Master Yun said that: “My works revolve around peacocks because their characteristics are similar to my fengshui philosophy, and they are cross-cultural and cross-regional. Peacock is a positive figure in most people’s eye and my painting appears as a peacock in the day but the peacock’s feathers turn into planets under UV light. This is an expression of my fengshui philosophy—with a strong mind, you will be like a planet which attracts all the positive energy around you, for you to lead a life of pride and glory.

Ambassador Julio Jeldres, Counsellor to the Cabinet of His Majesty the King of Cambodia, even complimented Master Yun as the master who made the West fall in love with the East. Prince Tesso Sisowath was also full of praises for Master Yun during his opening address. After the exhibition in Barcelona, Master Yun’s paintings will travel to Singapore and other countries as part of its world tour.
