Pagoda are most known in feng shui for their abilities in academic or literary luck and protection. Perhaps this is because of their historical function of housing sacred relics and texts. Academic achievements aided by the presence of a pagoda and literary luck are a prerequisite to fame and fortune later on in life. Pagodas make a great gift to those who are in school or seeking higher education.
According to the Lo Shu arrangement, placing a Pagoda in the southeast corner of the house can help adult members in the family to achieve fame and recognition in their career or business, and children in the house to achieve exceptional academic excellence.
