Not many feng shui enthusiasts are familiar with the use of Pi Yao, or Pi Xiu. This does not make the Pi Yao less powerful, though. In fact, the Pi Yao (Pi Xiu) is the only feng shui cure used in the flying stars school of feng shui to protect against a specific type of negative energy, called the Grand Duke (Tai Sui).

Not only is Pi Yao (Pi Xiu) the most powerful protective feng shui cure against the Grand Duke (a flying stars school term), it is also a good feng shui cure to attract wealth.

As with most traditional Chinese feng shui cures, the roots of the Pi Xiu (Pi Yao) symbol lie deep in Chinese mythology. With the fierce look of a winged lion, the mythical Pi Xiu can ward off evil spirits and protect anyone from harm.
The Pi Yao is considered to be loyal and obedient, which makes him a very popular personal protector in traditional feng shui. This is the reason why you can find so many amulets with Pi Yao (Pi Xiu), be it bracelets, keychains or other accessories.
Pi Yao (Pi Xiu) has a voracious appetite that seems to have no end; this makes him a symbol of good fortune and prosperity. The display of a Pi Yao (Pi Xiu) statue in business is considered a good luck feng shui cure to attract a never-ending flow of money.
