Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

Biographie de l'auteur

Deng Ming-Dao is the author of eight books, including 365 Tao, The Living I Ching, Chronicles of Tao, Everyday Tao, and Scholar Warrior. His books have been translated into fifteen languages. He lives in San Francisco.

Un livre magnifique, qui apporte par rapport aux autres livres consacrés au I Ching. La lecture de cet ouvrage m'a permis de comprendre des aspects que j'avais jusque là omis. La langue est relativement aisée même pour une francophone. je recommande ce beau livre.

Par Kindle Customer - Publié sur

What made me like this book so much was not just the readability, but the way that the content was brought forward. It makes more sense to me to have someone who speaks Chinese as their native language and has conquered English, then vice-versa, to bring this Chinese writing into this moment. The author also brings a truly well-considered explanation of what had preceded this moment in time in regards to Chinese history from almost 5,000 years ago, through the creation of writing, and the changes that occurred through dynasties, the technology of writing on bamboo sticks held by leather thongs, to the politics of ancient China, and so much more. I could spend a lot more words on this, but will end by recommending this book to anyone who seeks thoughtfulness, perspective, and comfort within their day. It is not divination, but wisdom, experience and compassion for those who came before, and those who will follow.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Elegant Taoist Philosophic-Poetic Perspective on the I Ching 1 avril 2013
Par Timeater - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Readers of other works of Deng Ming-Dao will not be disappointed with "The Living I Ching," which exceeds in depth, clarity and scope all that he has produced before. Readers and users of texts on the I Ching written by other authors will find their own consciousness and awareness developing, and enriching their lives beyond normal expectations. Those who have had little or no experience with either Eastern thought or the I Ching can have confidence in the authenticity of the principles underlying the composition of the I Ching.

The author's purpose is to help readers shape their own lives with the assistance of "ancient Chinese Wisdom". The I Ching is not a "fortune-telling," divination means in the usual sense of the term, nor a prophetic announcing. Rather, it is an oracle for guidance in living life harmoniously. It reveals both the nature of a given situation and the sequence of circumstances and events which led up to the situation in question, as well as the course of events to emerge in the future. Deng Ming-Dao writes:

"This, then, is what the 'Changes' finally means: it means absorbing the principles of change so that we can not only sense them intuitively, but also make intelligent decisions for the future to yield positive benefits. This is also the best way to understand the 'Changes' moral structure."

Deng Ming-Dao has created a text that is "a step-by-step way of absorbing the "Changes" directly." He frames the book with the metaphor of a pilgrimage (a spiritual journey) of 8 Circles. The circle is a common aspect of a pilgrimage, i.e. "one travels with the intention of returning to normal life". The second common aspect is "change," for the person on a pilgrimage returns to normal life with enhanced insight and spiritual strength. The circles start with "The Origin" continues through "Yin and Yang", "The Four Images", "The Early Heaven Eight Trigrams", "The Early Heaven Hexagrams", "The Later Heaven Eight Trigrams", "The Later Heaven 64 Hexagrams', to the 8th circle, "The Voice of the Oracle." The last circle is actually written in the first person on the "I Ching" who tells of its own "pilgrimage".

This pilgrimage takes the reader/user from ontological/cosmological principles underlying the I Ching through the evolution of yin and yang, trigrams, hexagrams and the words of Fu Xi, King Wen and Confucius. All of this is presented in the most down-to-earth, reader friendly style I have ever read in books on the I Ching. Deng Ming-Dao says that the I Ching is a human oracle and he presents it as a human in writing and in philosophy.

The "poetry" of Deng Ming-Dao increases the dimension of understanding of each hexagram. The pictographic lines are concise and informative. An accompanying poem/verse presents an earthly event such as a woman seated in a carriage meeting a man, or a crane swooping down while people on the ground erecting a building. The verse gives a "sense" of the significance of the principle underlying the hexagram and is worth re-reading after reading the more formal exposition. The Statement is an overall summary of the action of the hexagram. Each line of the hexagram (arranged diagonally bottom to top) is again an action type statement. The Image again is very physical in description and always includes aspects of nature. The text itself extends 2 pages. The first part contains a bit of philosophy, using history as an example and the second part, discusses each line, concluding with the relevance of the Image to the hexagram as a whole. Altogether, it is a rewarding and thought provoking discussion.

I highly recommend this book.

Beautiful book, wonderful layout, but serious flaws (goofed up young yin and young yang) and typos galore. The artwork is very good, and also the poetic renderings, but hard to look past the basic mistakes.

I was instructed to find an I-Ching translation that speaks to me and this is one of two I have chosen. I love this one for the not only the beautiful interpretations of the hexigrams and the latout, but for the indepth explanation of the development and meaning of the complete bagua and the both arrangements.
I currently have the kindle version but plan to buy a hardcopy as well. I've not given 5 stars because the kindle version does not have the the sixty four hexigrams linked from the table of contents or an index so it is laborious to find a particular gua.
Regardless, if you are looking for I-Ching with a more softer more personal tone take a look at thus one.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful introduction and reference work 21 mars 2009

For those with interest in the I-Ching, or Book of Changes, Deng Ming-Dao does a spectactular job translating the intent, beauty and complexity of each hexagram and trigram. Each Hexagram gets 4 pages showing the character, the pinyin, the statement and the lines with a detailed discussion.

This is far more than a new-age surface reading of the I-ching. The translations and discussion are fresh and timeless with illustrations by Mr. Ming-Dao himself. Whether you are trying to develop a deeper undertanding of Chinese Culture or are looking for a guidance in living your life this volume is well worth picking up, reading and rereading.
