The first book to cover the complete Taoist teachings on form, structure, and symbol in the I Ching. • Provides many new patterns and diagrams for visualizing the layout of the 64 hexagrams. • Includes advanced teachings on the hosts of the hexagrams, the mutual hexagrams, and the core hexagrams. • Written by Taoist Master Alfred Huang, author of The Complete I Ching. The Numerology of the I Ching is the first book to bring the complete Taoist teachings on form, structure, and symbol in the I Ching to a Western audience, and it is a natural complement to Alfred Huang's heralded Complete I Ching. It examines not only the classic circular arrangement of the eight trigrams but also the hidden numerology in this arrangement and its relationship to tai chi and the Chinese elements. Huang explains the binary code underlying the I Ching, the symbolism behind the square diagram of all 64 hexagrams, and Fu Xi's unique circular layout of the 64 hexagrams, completely unknown in the West. Entire chapters are devoted to such vital material as the hosts of the hexagrams, the mutual hexagrams, and the core hexagrams--all barely hinted at in previous versions of the I Ching. With appendices listing additional symbolism for each hexagram, formulas for easily memorizing the Chinese names of the sixty-four hexagrams, and much more, The Numerology of the I Ching is a must for serious I Ching students.

A revised edition of the definitive translation of the world’s most important book of divination • More than 64,000 copies sold of the first edition • The first English translation from within the tradition by a Chinese Taoist Master • Includes translations of the Ten Wings--the commentaries by Confucius essential to the I Ching’s insights Translated by the eminent Taoist Master Alfred Huang, The Complete I Ching has been praised by scholars and new students of the I Ching since its first edition. A native Chinese speaker, Master Huang first translated the original ideograms of the I Ching into contemporary Chinese and then into English, bringing forth the intuitive meanings embodied in the images of the I Ching and imbuing his translation with an accuracy and authenticity not possible in other English translations. However, what makes his translation truly definitive is his return to prominence of the Ten Wings, the commentaries by Confucius that are essential to the I Ching’s insights. This 10th anniversary edition offers a thorough introduction to the history of the I Ching, how to use it, and several new divination methods; in-depth and easy-to-reference translations of each hexagram name, description, and pictogram; and discussions of the interrelations between the hexagrams and the spiritual meaning of their sequence.

The first translation to honor the authentic Chinese spirit of the Book of Change For more than 3000 years the I Ching has been the most important book of divination in the world. Yet it has always been translated by Westerners who brought their own cultural biases to the work. Now, for the first time, an eminent Chinese scholar has translated the original ideograms of the I Ching into English. Imprisoned and sentenced to death during the Cultural Revolution in 1966, Master Alfred Huang studied the I Ching in secret with some of China's greatest minds. Released in 1979, he emigrated to the United States, where he discovered that no I Ching existed in English that truly understood the Chinese mind. This book is the product of his desire to right that situation. To the Chinese, the I Ching is nothing without the Confucian commentaries known as the Ten Wings. Previous editions have given them only a minor place in the book, or have left them out altogether. In this new translation, they are restored to their central importance by Master Huang. This book also emphasizes the intricate connections between the 64 possible hexagrams, and introduces several new methods for doing readings.

The I Ching, also called Book of Changes, is the most comprehensive and oldest oracle originated in ancient China. The I Ching (consists of 64 Hexagrams) signifies all situations and behaviors relating to nature and humans. The I Ching system is the integration of cosmology, philosophy, mathematics, symbolism and divination. It stresses the point of balance of opposites; indicates the changeable and the unchangeable which is that things change inevitably as times and conditions change while the laws of nature never change. Binary Number, the modern computer language, was invented by Gottfried Leibniz in 1679. Leibniz was deeply inspired by the I Ching. He recognized and wrote that his original concept of Binary System (using only the digit 0 and 1 throughout the computation) was corresponded to the I Ching’s Trigram (binary number from 000 to 111) thus the Hexagrams (Gua). Yin (0) and Yang (1) are the basic binary configuration of the I Ching symbols. Furthermore, DNA (the hereditary material of all life) Genetic Code, which consists of 64-Triplet of nucleotides, is exactly analogous to the 64-Triplet System of the I Ching. Isn’t that miraculous? Besides the above stated values, the philosophical and symbolic structures of the I Ching are also infinitely valued. The I Ching originally contains a system of divination. However the Numerology of I Ching, which was derived thousands of years later, significantly enriches the I Ching divinatory methods. It adds values of numeric, time, symbolism and the Five Elements (mutual generation and restriction between Metal, Fire, Water, Wood and Earth) to the original I Ching divination system, makes it simple to learn; swift to be used and miraculous the results. This book will focus on introducing this numerological way of divination. In order to allow beginners to straightforwardly understand this numerology in a short time, this book employs plenty of graphical images and charts to make it easy and simple to learn. All steps of divination are presented as visualized as possible. As a I Ching beginner or a lover, you will enjoy the great fun of using the Numerology of I Ching in life, in problem-solving or decision-making. — David Huang

The Eden Express describes from the inside Mark Vonnegut’s experience in the late ’60s and early ’70s—a recent college grad; in love; living communally on a farm, with a famous and doting father, cherished dog, and prized jalopy—and then the nervous breakdowns in all their slow-motion intimacy, the taste of mortality and opportunity for humor they provided, and the grim despair they afforded as well. That he emerged to write this funny and true book and then moved on to find the meaningful life that for a while had seemed beyond reach is what ultimately happens in The Eden Express. But the real story here is that throughout his harrowing experience his sense of humor let him see the humanity of what he was going through, and his gift of language let him describe it in such a moving way that others could begin to imagine both its utter ordinariness as well as the madness we all share.

'The Magician's I Ching' has been written to address two goals: first, to serve as a “practical” I Ching, organized in such a way as to be easily used by those interested in the I Ching's actual use as divination. Second, to have a particular emphasis on its use for the modern western magical practitioner; this emphasis is framed in such a way as to not be restrictive to the book's utility. The book is at once accessible and of interest to beginners, to those whose interest in the I Ching primarily relates to its connection to Magick, and to advanced students of the I Ching who are not specifically magical practitioners. Included in the book is a new interpretation of the complete core text of the I Ching, organized in the traditional “King Wen” sequence, with the original text adapted to a straightforward language and English terminology oriented toward facilitating the practical user. The chapters of the core text include western elemental descriptions, Confucian Commentaries distilled to their essence and expressed in plain language, and instructions on how the hexagram relates to the “Great Work” (of esoteric self-transformation). Beyond the core text, there is also significant material for the advanced practitioner: secret techniques of I Ching work, the significance of opposition, nuclear hexagrams, the mathematics of the I Ching, and the importance of line positions. There is information on the history of the I Ching and philosophical concepts in I Ching history that are rarely mentioned in western books on the subject. Also featured are entirely new methods of casting the I Ching, as well as the historical “Plum Blossom” numerological method (the I Ching “horoscope” of dates and times). Western esoteric practitioners will also find particular use in advanced material on the relationships between the I Ching and the western concepts of the elements, the I Ching and the western Qabalah, historical notes on Aleister Crowley's relationship with the I Ching, and an appendix with practical instructions on how to integrate the I Ching into one's daily magical/mystical practice.

A Companion to Yi Jing Numerology and Cosmology

Translations of the Yi jing into western languages have been biased towards the yili ('meaning and pattern') tradition, whereas studies of the xiangshu ('image and number') tradition - which takes as its point of departure the imagery and numerology associated with divination and its hexagrams, trigrams, lines, and related charts and diagrams - has remained relatively unexplored. This major new reference work is organised as a Chinese-English encyclopedia, arranged alphabetically according to the pinyin romanisation, with Chinese characters appended. A character index as well as an English index is included. The entries are of two kinds: technical terms and various other concepts related to the 'image and number' tradition, and bio-bibliographical information on Chinese Yi jing scholars. Each entry in the former category has a brief explanation that includes references to the origins of the term, cross-references, and a reference to an entry giving a more comprehensive treatment of the subject.
