Overview

The first book to cover the complete Taoist teachings on form, structure, and symbol in the I Ching.


• Provides many new patterns and diagrams for visualizing the layout of the 64 hexagrams.


• Includes advanced teachings on the hosts of the hexagrams, the mutual hexagrams, and the core hexagrams.


• Written by Taoist Master Alfred Huang, author of The Complete I Ching.


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 Fu Xi's unique circular layout of the 64 hexagrams, completely unknown in the West. Entire chapters are devoted to such vital material as the hosts of the hexagrams, the mutual hexagrams, and the core hexagrams--all barely hinted at in previous versions of the I Ching. With appendices listing additional symbolism for each hexagram, formulas for easily memorizing the Chinese names of the sixty-four hexagrams, and much more, The Numerology of the I Ching is a must for serious I Ching students.

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 that 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.
