The book of changes

“The book of changes” is an ancient classic about the changes of everything in the world. It was painted by fu xi according to the laws of nature and compiled by king wen of zhou and Confucius. The full text is only 5000 words, but it contains everything in the world, become the treasure of the Chinese nation.

Some people think that the Book of Changes originated from "Hetu" and "Luoshu". Legend has it that in ancient times, there appeared dragon horses with pictures on the back of the Yellow River, and spiritual turtles with characters on the back of Luoshui. Therefore, the sage Fuxi drew "innate Eight Diagrams". Up to now, in Chinese society, anyone who believes in Feng Shui must have heard the Book of Changes, and no Feng Shui teacher knows nothing about the Book of Changes. It can be seen that the Book of Changes can indeed be used for divination.

He Tu / Luo Shu

In the Book of Changes, it is believed that "Taiji begets two instruments, two instruments beget four images, and four images beget eight diagrams". Fuxi used "—" and "— —" to form the image of hexagrams when he drew eight diagrams. This kind of symbol is called "Yao", "Yang Yao" and "Yin Yao". In the Book of Changes, there are six hexagrams in one hexagram, and eight hexagrams can be divided into eight parts separately, so there are sixty-four hexagrams.
