Ling Chi Ching: A Classic Chinese Oracle by Ralph D. Sawyer, Mei-Chun Lee Sawyer

TheLing ChI Chingwas first created by an unknown Chinese scholar who consciously sought to present the world with a more accessible oracle than the esotericI Ching. For centuries theLing ChI Chinghas been a popular divination device for attaining self-knowledge and wisdom. Like its more famous cousin, theI Ching, theLing ChI Chingis rich in poetic language and metaphorical imagery, linking the dynamic principles of heaven and earth with the affairs of people. But theLing ChI Chingis far more accessible than theI Ching, focusing on the concerns of day-to-day life and positive accomplishment, with no moving lines to interpret. The method of consultation includes throwing twelve coins, which are then arranged in three rows to yield one of 125 possible trigraphs. In the text, each trigraph is represented by a core oracle describing a situation, problem, or event, and its internal dynamic, along with a verse emphasizing the trigraphs more subtle, intuitive qualities. To aid the reader in interpreting the oracle, selections from classical commentaries have been included, as well as the translators own commentary on the text.
