ABOUT THIS BOOK:
Learn the amazing inner secrets of the world's oldest book of spirituality and divination, when you getThe Pristine Yi King by Louis Culling.
Culling, a renowned occultist and expert on the Yi King (also known as the I Ching), undertook the task of "scraping away the barnacles," as he put it, that had fastened themselves onto the Yi over the centuries. In fact, much of the material in the most popular editions of the I Ching was added and not part of the original work. Most of the additions were made in the eleventh century. The original book was written 4,000 years earlier. InThe Pristine Yi King, you will learn:
·The history of the Yi King, including its five evolutions
·How the Yi King was originally used
·The true order of the hexagrams
·The way to quickly memorize the order and meaning of all the hexagrams
·Chess and the Yi King
·How to use the Yi King today, without referring to any books
In The Pristine Yi King, you will discover some amazing history of the ancient book. For example, did you know that the order of the hexagrams was purposely changed? It's true. It was done by King Wan who, while imprisoned, used this as a secret code to communicate with his followers while protecting himself from further government retribution.
But most importantly, you'll learn the original and obvious (when you see it) order and meanings for each of the hexagrams. The use of the Yi King will become so clear that you will be able to use it to give accurate readings without consulting any book. No longer will you have to ponder elusive passages (which were codes, anyway). Instead, you'll have one of the finest, clearest, and most accessible tools for divination and spirituality ever.
