9780060850029: Living I Ching: Using Ancient Chinese Wisdom to Shape Your Life

To be blunt, no other "I ching" lays out its philosophy simply and clearly. Written by the bestselling author of "365 Tao: Daily Meditations", this book has been reviewed in "MBS" magazines. You will also find reviews and mentions of this book in "MBS" pages of national newspapers e.g., "Body & Soul" and "The Times". Deng is the author of "365 TAO" and 7 other "Harper" titles. A renowned Taoist authority, Deng applies his own knowledge and poetic sensibilities to one of the world's oldest books - the "I Ching". Rather than using this ancient book of wisdom as a fortune cookie, Deng's rendition opens it up so that it is restored to its purpose - that of an "art of living" manual. While mostly known as a tool of divination, the "I Ching" is actually a repository of centuries of wisdom. Most of the existing translations neglect the wisdom and philosophy of the "I Ching". Deng, first of all acknowledges the challenges of translation - it is of course written in ancient Chinese, and some of the words appear only in the "I Ching" and nowhere else.

Deng has taken a more holistic approach to the book - his aim is to expose the very basic wisdom and philosophy of the "I ching" so that it becomes more than "just" a divinatory tool, it becomes a manual for living - so that readers will be able to apply the lessons of the "I ching" to their everyday lives, not just with an occasional reading. The language itself is friendly, open and welcoming without compromising the integrity of the original text. This will be beautifully illustrated with Deng's own pen and ink drawings.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 183 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Known widely as a tool for predicting the future, the I Ching is also a repository of three thousand years of philosophy. Its basic premises are simple: that all the world changes, that change is driven by impersonal forces that can be seen in terms of yin and yang, and that all change is cyclical. The wise person harmonizes with the great cycles of change, and, in order to be a master of change, must understand the I Ching. With this new translation, Deng Ming-Dao, a leading authority on Taoist practice and philosophy, recovers the true wisdom of this ancient classic. The language is friendly, open, and welcoming, and a breathtaking watercolor by the author opens each chapter. This innovative translation brings the ancient Eastern wisdom of the I Ching alive for contemporary readers. Bookseller Inventory # AAR9780060850029

Book Description HarperOne. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 448 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 7.2in. x 1.2in.From the author of 365 Tao and a leading authority on Taoist practice and philosophy comes a completely innovative translation of the classic text of Eastern wisdom, the I Ching. The I Ching, or Book of Changes, is an ancient manual for divining the future. Its basic text is traditionally attributed to the Chinese King Wen, the Duke of Zhou, and the philosopher Confucius. By tossing coins, rolling dice, using a computer, or, more traditionally, counting yarrow stalks, one can create a seemingly random combination of heads or tails, odd or even, yin or yang, to construct six lines (for example, solid for odd numbers or broken for even numbers). These six lines make up a hexagram that provides advice, predictions, and answers to questions on topics from love and career to family and finance. While known mostly as a tool of divination, the I Ching is also a repository of centuries of wisdom. Most of the existing translations offer either dense, scholarly commentary or little more than fortune-cookie platitudes, but in The Living I Ching Deng Ming-Dao takes a more holistic approach. His new translation recovers the true wisdom and philosophy of this ancient classic, so that the I Ching becomes more than just a book of fortune-telling -- it becomes a manual for living. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9780060850029
