Guide To The I Ching

A Guide to the I Ching is an interpretive manual to the classic Wilhelm/Baynes translation of the I Ching. Now a classic in its own right and translated into other languages (German, Spanish, Portuguese, Croatian, and Italian), the “Guide” is recognized by teachers and long time students of the I Ching as indispensable to its understanding and use. Developed from notes taken over many years, the Guide mirrors the reader’s true inner feelings, helping him to bring his life and fate into harmony with the Tao — the way of the Universe.

From the Publisher:This book, published first in 1980, is here presented in its third revised and enlarged edition. It remains the best selling I Ching book for its major independent press distributors in the U.S. and England, and it has been translated into German, Spanish, Portuguese, and Croatian. It has attained a dedicated and enthusiastic worldwide following from readers of all interests and backgrounds.

The I Ching is used in a type of divination called cleromancy, which uses apparently random numbers. Six numbers between 6 and 9 are turned into a hexagram, which can then be looked up in the text, in which hexagrams are arranged in an order known as the King Wen sequence. The interpretation of the readings found in the I Ching is a matter which has been endlessly discussed and debated over in the centuries following its compilation, and many commentators have used the book symbolically, often to provide guidance for moral decision making as informed by Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism. The hexagrams themselves have often acquired cosmological significance and been paralleled with many other traditional names for the processes of change such as yin and yang and Wu Xing.
