By Master Alfred Huang
Trade paperback book
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 the unique circular layout of the 64 hexagrams, nearly unknown in the West. Entire chapters are devoted to such vital material as the hosts of the hexagrams and the mutual hexagrams – all barely hinted at in previous versions of the I Ching. With listings of additional symbolism for the ba gua, formulas for understanding the sacred He Tu and Lo Shu diagrams, and much more, The Numerology of the I Ching is a must for serious I Ching students.
About the Author:
Master Alfred Huang is the author of The Complete I Ching which has been hailed as a modern masterpiece and judged by Intuition magazine to be “superior in nearly every respect” to the earlier English versions. Imprisoned and sentenced to death during China’s Cultural Revolution in 1966, Huang studied the I Ching in secret with some of that country’s greatest minds. Released in 1979, he emigrated to Hawaii, where he discovered the no accurate material on the I Ching existed in English. Since then he has devoted his life to righting that situation. He lives on the island of Maui.
