On a recent visit to England, world Master of Black Sect Tantric Buddhism Thomas Lin Yun, a renowned expert on Chinese geomancy, Feng Shui, was asked if the special feelings one often has when visiting an old castle are due to the architecture, the people who have lived and prayed there, or a special quality of nature at that place. Master Lin's response was that the people had made a difference and the architecture seemed inspired, but none of it could have happened if a place had not first drawn people to it.
