The Celestial Dragon I Ching
A Unique New Version of the Chinese Oracle for Making Decisions and Discovering your DestinyBook - 2012
This elegant I Ching evokes the mystery and majesty of ancient China, while serving as an enjoyable and illuminating tool for practical self-discovery and decision-making, thanks to profound insights that have stood the test of time. The I Ching, which is more than 5,000 years old, is a collection of divinatory wisdom that encapsulates the whole of human experience. In China the system was once used with yarrow sticks but these days it is more common for people to toss three coins. You throw the coins six times, and convert the resulting six permutations into a hexagram a sixline symbol of broken and unbroken lines. Here at last is a version of the I Ching that pays due consideration to the imagery and character of the original, and converts the predictions into thoroughly modern, understandable terms without losing the atmosphere of antiquity. Designed to appeal to all those intimated or baffled by more purist editions of the ancient Chinese text, The Celestial Dragon I Ching offers a complete oracle by which you can read your destiny and make good decisions whenever you face a dilemma inspired by Chinese wisdom.
