I Ching, also Yi Jing or The Book of Changes, is thought to be the oldest and most abstruse classic in Chinese history. It has been an aid to foretell the future and make decisions for thousands of years. Rich philosophic viewpoints lurked in the thoughts have provided a case of guiding significance. It is a well built philosophic ideology, which is for most of the people obscure and difficult to follow. Hence there are a lot of eisegesis.

I Ching (Book of Changes). The brilliant South American group Uakti released their album "I Ching", a wonderful musical interpretration of the Classic, in 1993.

Pi indicates that (under the conditions which it supposes) there is good fortune. But let (the principal party intended in it) re−examine himself, (as if) by divination, whether his virtue be great, unintermitting, and firm.

Start by marking The I Ching or Book of Changes as Want to Read . I have used this little Book of Changes for about 15 years (I'm on my second copy) and it has never, ever, ever steered me wrong (unless I've ignored what it said, which has been far too often).

Book of Changes influence on modern society. There is no final authority on the cosmic truths that the I Ching reveals. But it does offer us an ancient and renewed paradigmatic way of viewing the world.

I am anti choice. I dislike making decisions. A number of years ago I faced a complex dilemma. I had to select between two choices of ambivalent value. The wrong choice would probably be bad for me. Even the right choice held dangers if I did not respond correctly to it.

I went to I Ching, tossed my three coins, and read what it said in the hexagram the coins directed me to. What I read was appropriate to my circumstances. I was still not ready to make my choice, but I had a better understanding of the situation in front of me. I wrote down the hexagram, and took notes on what I Ching told me.

Then I lost my notes. Because I still needed to make my decision, I tossed the three coins again, and went to the hexagram they told me to study.

I was astonished. I was told to go to the same hexagram I had been directed to the first time. The chances of this happening were one in 4,096. I Ching is magic, I concluded. I wrote down the hexagram, and took notes on what it told me about my situation.

Several days later I found my first notes. It turned out that with two tosses of the coins I had been directed to two different hexagrams. Nevertheless, in each case what I read was relevant to my situation. Each hexagram helped me make a difficult decision that turned out to be in my interest.

I Ching is not magic. In a sense it is even more remarkable. It does not serve as a sorcerer, but as a skilled psychologist, one who asks the right questions, helps you to understand aspects of your subconscious mind, and who helps you to solve your problems.

Astrology is somewhat the same. The next time you read your horoscope in a newspaper, do not read what it says for your sign. Read what it says for another sign. If you are facing a problem in your life you will probably find that the writing for the other sign is helpful. Then read your sign. It too is helpful. Finally, read the horoscope in another newspaper, and see what it says for your sign.

There will probably not be any similarity in what the two different horoscopes say about your sign. Nevertheless, each will be helpful.

I have never worked with tarot cards. I suspect that they work the same way. I Ching, astrology, and tarot are evocative. Their ambiguous messages encourage you to project your concerns into them. In the process they help you in ambiguous situations.

The use of the yarrow-sticks or the coins is a way to encourage one who consults I Ching to believe that there is something super natural in its working. What would be less psychologically interesting, but equally effective would be to use a roulette wheel with 64 slots, or to cut 64 small pieces of paper, write one to sixty four on the pieces, put them into a hat, shuffle the hat, close your eyes, and pick a piece of paper. Any one of the 64 hexagrams can give you helpful insights and advice.

Epictetus said that a gambler cannot determine the roll of the dice. He can determine what he will do when the dice stop rolling.

I Ching will not tell the future. It will not give you a winning lottery number. It will not tell you which horse will win a race. It will not tell you which stocks will gain in value, and which will lose. It will not tell you that next week you will receive a letter from a former love interest you have neither seen for years nor been able to forget. It will help you decide how to respond to that letter, if you received it last week.

Brilliant advice and fantastic translation. My only criticism is just how much liberty Wilhelm seems to take with his personal interpretations of the text. He gives a great reference point and in many cases vital perspective regarding ancient Chinese culture, but as Jung illustrates in his interpretation of his own reading in the foreward, the text itself is meant to be interpreted by the asker in the moment of asking. Just remember that, while he is a scholar, and well versed in the paradigm of the eastern mind, he is still a man of the west.

I have consulted the I Ching for most of my life, and I bought this edition because the one I had was stolen from my library.
Now I am a hard-core scientist and an agnostic, but sometimes things happen...
I am not going to try to explain what is happening here, neither for myself nor for others.
It is something to be explored, and like music, poetry, maths, chess, gardening, quantum physics ...what-have-you, sometimes you get entangled, sometimes you don't.
If you do with this book, it will be a fulfilling lifetime affair with someone you never really get to know.

This book is amazing and a keeper for me for life. The translation and interpretation is very clear and easy to understand. It is the kind of book that just "comes alive and right off the page" if you connect with it. It makes an excellent read anytime because it is very inspirational as well. I read it at night before sleeping, and it seems that the wisdom that it imparts has affected my life in a positive, most profound way!

I only recently came across this text, having read Master Huang's work initially and I find that both are complementary to each other. Wilhelm's relationship with Jung has increased the hidden meanings behind many of Jung's words that I read in tandem with my tao studies. It's really beautiful how the tone and theme of one book shows up in the basic language of another simply because they were in correspondence. Anyway, totally easy to read and very concise with melding Eastern and Western thought, especially as it is the first instance of translation from someone who actually embedded himself in Chinese culture in order to attain the knowledge to begin with.

If I could award six stars to a book then this would be the one. It is absolutely ESSENTIAL for anyone who wishes to undertake a serious study of the I Ching, as it contains not only the most authoritative reading of the text ever published but also a wealth of supporting commentaries that bring further insight into the minds of the great scholars who have read and attempted to divine its full meaning. And all within the same book! I also highly recommend the companion work, Understanding the I Ching, which provides many other valuable insights from the father-and-son Wilhelm team. But beware! There is nothing simple or superficial about either of these books and both will require long hours of patient study and reflection before the reader can begin to understand them. But I cannot think of any other time that would be better spent, especially if the reader is interested in the origins and the history of the religious impulse in man.

I use the I Ching earnestly and frequently for its intended purpose (divination) and find Wilhelm is always my guy. Next to him on the shelf are the Blofeld, Ritsema, and Wen translations. Wilhelm's ability to weave in the commentaries and elucidate the symbolism of the poetic imagery is unmatched in these other versions. It provides clear contours with more than enough metaphor at the center.

If you feel Wilhelm is too archaic, try adding Ritsema's translation as it provides a richer set of linguistic tools to access the text. Only bring Blofeld in when you're totally stymied.
This is a timeless book. I have bought it several times over the years. I'm surprised at the inferior binding the front and back are already curling up the material is so thin and flimsy. This however does not change the knowledge within.
