1 Review
For centuries the I Ching has been used as a basic map of conscious development, containing the underlying principles of all religions, and highly prized by followers of Buddhism. Chih-hsu Ou-i uses the concepts of Tianti Buddhism to elucidate the I Ching --concentration and insight, calmness and wisdom, and various levels of realization. Skillfully translated by Thomas Cleary, this work presents the complete text of the I Ching plus the only Buddhist interpretation of the oracle.

Review: The Buddhist I Ching

User Review  - Joe Fiala - Goodreads

I like the concept of this book series and this is definitely a valuable resource to have on hand, but doesn't stand well on its own. On its own, it would not give adequate respect to the Yi Jing teaching. Again, a great resource, though. Read full review
