They say: The Book of Changes, I Ching, composed of 64 hexagrams each of which includes a judgement, is an ancient Chinese text considered the best source for Eastern philosophy and wisdom. Tradition attributes the conception of an initial text to Emperor Fu Xi who lived during the third millennium before the Christian era. Much later, in 1150 BC ca., King Wen and his son developed this text. During the 5th century BC, Confucius wrote the comments, making it public. This is how it became recognized as one of the five Confucian classics and was called I Ching or the Book of Changes.

In Eastern and Western tradition, the universe follows the law of dualism, or rather; everything has within itself its own opposite, thus causing the cosmic dynamism of death and rebirth, the passive and the active. In the East, that which is active is called Yang, and its opposite, passive, is called Yin. The cosmic law which governs them is the law of continuous change which is called Tao, the most profound and vastest symbol of the Chinese culture, considered the harmony of everything: that is,the Road to Illumination. Tao is therefore the Road which encourages man to understand and accept nature and its laws in order to become one with it.

During divining, the 64 I Ching responses will always provide pertinent answers, suggesting how to behave in various situations or before making a decision. The response will help between one decision and another regarding love, profession, or what to do in the future. Each card of the book of I Ching bears the hexagram and number corresponding to the original I Ching text, whereas each response in cursive points out the judgement's primary meaning.


Guest review

"The Chinese I Ching is one of the world's oldest systems of wisdom, advice and divination. Based on 64 Hexagrams (geometric designs), the I Ching is traditionally consulted using 50 stalks of dried yarrow or three oriental coins. This new pack of 64 cards simplifies the process and instead of a complicated ritual involving yarrow stalks or coins, you simply select a card from the pack. Each card represents a different Hexagram. However, instead of showing the actual geometric Hexagrams, the artist illustrates each card with a muted, but thought-provoking picture, which describes some of the qualities of each Hexagram. For example, No. 6 entitled Live Dangerously, shows a man balanced precariously on the noses of two large sharks. Having chosen a card and contemplated the picture, the booklet is then consulted. This quotes a short 'sentence' about the card, followed by a detailed 'commentary' which expands on the theme of the 'sentence'. These cards are ideal for anyone who wishes to consult a simplified, but interesting, version of the I Ching."
