Although the much-beloved Bhagavad Gita was composed in India more than 2000 years ago, its timeless teachings on karma yoga (the path of service) and bhakti yoga (the path of devotion) make it a foundational text for modern yogis. Its compelling narrative, filled with iconic characters and colourful lessons about the spiritual journey, make it a pleasure to read.
Since its first English translation in 1885, the Bhagavad Gita has influenced countless luminaries, including Gandhi and Carl Jung, and it has inspired innumerable translations by both yogis and scholars. This new translation, by yoga scholar and author Georg Feuerstein with his wife, Brenda, rightly identifies the Gita as a householder text—meaning you don’t have to be a mountain-top yogi to absorb its wisdom. Whether you’re a housewife, an office worker or a yoga teacher, the Gita’s teachings on surrender and devotion can guide you in your daily life.
What, finally, makes the Feuersteins’s translation unique? Unlike the others, it is packed with scholarly essays that help students understand the Gita’s historical and cultural context, its colourful characters and its philosophical worldview before they read the text. This lengthy tome is written in an academic st

|Alex Grey was born in Columbus, Ohio on November 29, 1953 (Sagittarius), the middle child of a gentle middle-class couple. His father was a graphic designer and encouraged his son’s drawing ability. Young Alex would collect insects and dead animals from the suburban neighborhood and bury them in the back yard. The themes of death and transcendence weave throughout his artworks, from the earliest drawings to later performances, paintings and sculpture. Alex went to the Columbus College of Art and Design on full scholarship from 1971-3. Grey dropped out of art school and painted billboards for Columbus Outdoor Advertising, 1973-4. Grey then moved to Boston to study with and work as studio assistant for conceptual artist, Jay Jaroslav, at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 1974-5.|
At the Museum School, Alex met his life-long partner, the artist, Allyson Rymland Grey. At their meeting in 1975, an entheogenically induced mystical experience transformed his agnostic existentialism to a radical transcendentalism. The Grey couple continued to take “sacramental journeys” on LSD. For five years, Alex worked in the Anatomy department at Harvard Medical School preparing cadavers for dissection while he studied the body on his own. He later worked for Dr. Herbert Benson and Dr. Joan Borysenko as a research technologist at Harvard’s department of Mind/Body Medicine, conducting scientific experiments to investigate subtle healing energies. Alex’s anatomical training prepared him for painting the Sacred Mirrors (see below) and for working as a medical illustrator. Doctors at Harvard saw images of his Sacred Mirrors, and hired Alex for illustration work.
Grey instructed Artistic Anatomy and Figure Sculpture for ten years at New York University, and has taught the Visionary Art Intensive and other art workshops with Allyson at The New York Open Center, Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado, the California Institute of Integral Studies and Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York. The couple now teach MAGI workshops (Mystic Artists Guild International) at CoSM in Wappinger, New York.
In 1972 Grey began a series of art actions that bear resemblance to rites of passage, in that they present stages of a developing psyche. The approximately fifty performance rites, conducted over the last thirty years move through transformations from an egocentric to more sociocentric and increasingly worldcentric and theocentric identity. In a major performance entitled WorldSpirit, spoken word poetry in musical collaboration with Kenji Williams was released in 2004 as a DVD.
Grey’s unique series of 21 life-sized paintings, the Sacred Mirrors, take the viewer on a journey toward their own divine nature by examining, in detail, the body, mind, and spirit. The Sacred Mirrors, present the physical and subtle anatomy of an individual in the context of cosmic, biological and technological evolution. Begun in 1979, the series took a period of ten years to complete. It was during this period that Alex developed depictions of the human body that “x-ray” the multiple layers of reality, and reveal the interplay of anatomical and spiritual forces. After painting the Sacred Mirrors, he applied this multidimensional perspective to such archetypal human experiences as praying, meditation, kissing, copulating, pregnancy, birth, nursing and dying. Grey’s recent work explores the subject of consciousness from the perspective of “universal beings” whose bodies are grids of fire, eyes and infinite galactic swirls.
Renowned healers Olga Worral and Rosalyn Bruyere express appreciation for the skillful portrayal of clairvoyant vision his paintings of translucent glowing bodies. Countless teachers and spiritual leaders, including Deepak Choprah, incorporate Alex’s art in their power point presentations. Grey’s paintings have been featured in venues as diverse as the album art of TOOL, SCI, the Beastie Boys and Nirvana, Time and Newsweek magazines, the Discovery Channel, rave flyers and sheets of blotter acid. Exhibited worldwide, Alex’s art has been honored with solo exhibitions at Feature Inc., Tibet House, Stux Gallery, P.S. 1, The NYC Outsider Art Fair, The New Museum in NYC, the Grand Palais in Paris, the Sao Paulo Biennial in Brazil. Alex’s art has been featured in several year long exhibitions at the American Visionary Art Museum including a room installation he created with Allyson entitled “Heart Net” (1998-99). A mid-career retrospective of Grey’s works at the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego in 1999. A keynote speaker at conferences all over the world including Tokyo, Amsterdam, Basel, Barcelona and Manaus, the international psychedelic community has embraced Grey as an important mapmaker and spokesman for the visionary realm.
For 2011 an 2012, the Watkins Review named Alex Grey one of the top twenty spiritual leaders alive today, in the company of such towering luminaries as His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Eckhardt Tolle, and Oprah Winfrey. The Temple of Understanding awarded and sighted both the Grey’s as two of the world’s top fifty Interfaith leaders.
Grey’s first monograph, the large format art book entitled, Sacred Mirrors: The Visionary Art of Alex Grey, has been translated into five languages with well over one hundred thousand copies. His inspirational book, The Mission of Art, traces the evolution of human consciousness through art history, exploring the role of an artist’s intention and conscience, and reflecting on the creative process as a spiritual path.
Transfigurations, Alex’s second monograph, contains over 300 color and black & white plates of his artwork. The Visionary Artist, a CD of Grey’s reflections published by Sounds True, leads the listener on a journey of art as a spiritual practice. The video, ARTmind incorporates Alex’s images in an exploration of the healing potential of Sacred Art. Grey co-edited the book, Zig Zag Zen: Buddhism and Psychedelics (Chronicle Books, 2002). In 2004, the VISIONS boxed set contains both earlier monographs of Grey’s artwork plus a portfolio of new works.
Alex Grey’s upcoming book Net of Being, to be released in late November 2012, shows how Alex’s visionary art is evolving the cultural body through icons of interconnectedness. Grey’s latest monograph includes over 200 reproductions of Grey’s artwork, contains spectacular photos of Grey’s collaboration with the cult band TOOL plus his worldwide live-painting performances, and offers Grey’s reflections on how art evolves consciousness with a new symbology of the “networked self.” Alex’s painting “Net of Being”—inspired by a blazing vision of an infinite grid of Godheads during an ayahuasca journey—has reached millions as the stage set and the cover and interior of the band TOOL’s Grammy award–winning triple-platinum album,10,000 Days. Net of Being is one of many images Grey has created that have resulted in a chain reaction of uses—from apparel and jewelry to tattoos and music videos—em
A five-year installation of Grey’s best loved artworks were exhibited at the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, CoSM, in New York City from 2004-9. Alex and Allyson have collaborated on performance art, live-painting on stage throughout the world, and the “social sculpture” called CoSM, Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, that the Grey’s cofounded in 1996. The Grey’s live at CoSM in Wappinger, New York and in Brooklyn since 1984. Their daughter, Zena Grey, born in 1988, is an accomplished actress and artist living in Los Angeles.
First a lttle background about the book.The moment this book came out in the market, it became instant bestseller.
In fact,there is nothing to be surprised about it, as the very name of Narayan Dutt Shrimali suggests mastery over the subject, and any book on palmistry or astrology written by him deserves such reception by readers.
According to palmistry our destiny is imprinted on our palms.
The thinnest line on the palm has its own significance - even a single thread-line is important.
Given the vast scope of the subject, this authoritative book on palmistry contains all aspects of this ancient art with clear illustrations and complete information in simple language.
The author has given the gist of Indian as well as western views on palmistry and has maintained the fundamental differences and causes thereof.
This practical self-learning compendium illustrates more than 240 palmistry combinations (Yog) which have been thoroughly explained.
Not only the common readers but also experts of astrology and palmistry will also be greatly benefited by this book.
The author, Dr. Narayan Dutt Shrimali, is a well-known palmist and writer.
He is also the President of the Indian Astrological Study & Research Center at Jodpur, Rajasthan. MsSVig
This Video Course on DVD will demonstrate step by step how you can use the Master Time Factor for any market. Even if you are a total novice, the clear explanations will leave you in no doubt how to find the pulse of the market.”
A question that crosses many Traders minds at one time or another is,
How do I find the cycle for a specific market?”
Most markets do have totally different dates as highs and lows.
W.D. Gann said that he found a Master Time Factor that allowed him to time individual markets highs and lows.
In My new DVD I will show you exactly how to precisely time highs & lows just like W.D. Gann.
Not only that I will teach you how to trade with the trend between these timing dates.
Rather than reading, I think it’s much easier to watch exactly how it’s done. Written words can be misinterpreted whereas a video can be played as many times as is necessary. By watching the videos you can see clearly every little detail in getting the correct time cycles. There is a tremendous amount of good material that will leave you in no doubt how to find the turning points yourself. Everything is on the screen so you can follow through as I explain exactly what is happening. What I show on the videos is exactly how to get the timing points, also how I determine if they should be traded and then how I actually trade them. After all, the practical application of timing with regard to trading is our whole reason for acquiring this knowledge

A few small booklets based on the lectures by Paramahansa Yogananda (Autobiography of the yogi) from the Self-Realization Fellowship:
* Habit Your Master or Your Slave
* Increasing the Power of Initiative
* Nervousness Cause and Cure
* Seek God Now!
* The Art of Living
* The Universality of Yoga
* Who Made God
Paramahansa Yogananda was an Indian yogi and guru who introduced many westerners to the teachings of meditation and Kriya Yoga through his book, Autobiography of a Yogi.
Self-Realization Fellowship / Yogoda Satsanga Society of India is a worldwide spiritual organization founded by Paramahansa Yogananda in 1920 and based in Mount Washington in Los Angeles, California.
The group carries on Paramahansa Yogananda's teachings, including Kriya Yoga, a form of yoga the group claims originated millennia ago in India. To this end, it conducts home-study lessons; publishes Yogananda's writings, lectures, and recorded talks; oversees temples, retreats, meditation centers, and monastic communities bearing the name Self-Realization Order; and coordinates the Worldwide Prayer Circle, which it describes as a network of groups and individuals who pray for those in need of physical, mental, or spiritual aid, and who also pray for world peace and harmony.
Every day is a chance for a new beginning - an awakening. Start each day with the gift of time-tested wisdom from the Kabbalah. Kabbalah 365 is a unique collection of rare Jewish mystery and understanding. People from all walks of life are finding their paths illuminated within the Kabbalah. Each selected reading, one for every day of the yearly cycle, encourages honest contemplation, true inspiration, and deep reflection. Here are just a few examples: If you are in a hurry to get to an appointment, and you are riding on a train that is moving too slow, do you think you will arrive at your destination any faster by getting up and running through the train? Likewise, when the time is right for you, you'll be arriving at your destination - no sooner, no later. In the meantime, make sure you are on board. If you are rubbing two sticks together and are having difficulty lighting a fire, move to another place and try again. Likewise, if you are having difficulty in the place where you are, shift to another place. Experience the vastness and riches of the Kabbalah with Kabbalah 365, which ably preserves the integrity of the original texts, some translated here for the first time, and renders insights in easy-to-understand language.

From the Preface:
An Analysis of the Pali Canon was originally the work of A.C. March, the founder-editor of Buddhism in England (from 1943, The Middle Way), the quarterly journal of The Buddhist Lodge (now The Buddhist Society, London). It appeared in the issues for Volume 3 and was later offprinted as a pamphlet. Finally, after extensive revision by I.B. Horner (the late President of the Pali Text Society) and Jack Austin, it appeared as an integral part of A Buddhist Student’s Manual, published in 1956 by The Buddhist Society to commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of its founding. The basic analysis of the Tipitaka appeared in The Mahā Bodhi, 37:19–42 (Calcutta 1929), and was reprinted in K.D.P. Wickremesinghe’s Biography of the Buddha (Colombo 1972).
In the present edition, the basic analysis of the Canon has been left in its original state although some minor corrections had to be made. However, it has been found possible to fully explore the Samyutta and Anguttara Nikāyas together with three important texts from the Khuddaka Nikāya: Udāna, Itivuttaka, and Suttanipāta. It was deemed unnecessary to give similar treatment to the Dhammapada, as this popular anthology is much more readily accessible. The Paṭisambhidāmagga has also been analysed.
The index (except for minor amendments) was originally prepared by G.F. Allen and first appeared in his book The Buddha’s Philosophy. In this edition it has been simplified by extensive substitution of Arabic for Roman numerals.
The Bibliography has been completely revised as a consequence of the vast output of books on the subject that have come on to the market over the past few decades. Indeed, it was originally intended to make this an exhaustive section of Pali works in the English language, past and present. A number of anthologies include both suttas in their entirety and short extracts from the texts. In such cases the compiler has only indicated the complete suttas. Moreover, to keep the Bibliography to a manageable size, it was also necessary to omit a number of anthologies which include selected translations available from other, more primary sources.
It is thus hoped that this short work will awaken in the reader a desire to study the original texts themselves.

This book primarily concerns the Lidai faboa ji (Record of the Dharma-Jewel Through the Generations) composed sometime between 744 and 780 CE by the short-lived Bao Tang sect of Chan at the Bao Tang Monastery in Yizhou, Jiannan (Sichuan), regarding their master Wuzhu (714-774). The manusc
It is the subject of the author’s doctoral thesis and has been described as ‘dense’ by one of my professors. However, overall I found it a very interesting book. It focuses on a truly obscure and only recently rediscovered Chinese Chan text, the Lidai fabao ji, but it does so in a way that carries with it an enormous amount of history (its contexts) from the period leading up to, during, and just after the time the text was written, the Tang Dynasty or eighth century China, sometimes (erroneously?) called the “Golden Age of Chan.”

The Secret Doctrine of the Kabbalah:
Recovering the Key to Hebraic Sacred Science
A vast reconstruction of the knowledge of the ancient Jewish priest-scientists, with vital implications for contemporary spirituality and science.
• Reveals an ancient science that used geometry, sound, and number to link the finite world of human experience with the infinite realm of the divine.
• Uses teachings extending back thousands of years to explicate key concepts of quantum physics and quantum cosmology.
For centuries the Kabbalah has fascinated devotees of mysticism while its origins have remained obscure. Now, in her brilliant new work, Leonora Leet reveals that the Kabbalah was the product of a sophisticated, though largely forgotten, Hebraic sacred science that was the rival of any in Egypt or Greece. Not only does Leet reconstruct the secret teachings of the priest-scientists of the Hebrew temple, she also shows them to be the key to understanding both biblical and kabbalistic cosmology.
Unlike previous purely historical explorations of the Jewish esoteric tradition, The Secret Doctrine of the Kabbalah resurrects this ancient body of knowledge to reveal eternal truths that can have a profound and positive impact on contemporary spirituality. New experimental methods of practicing Hebraic sacred science are explored that explain as never before the meaning of the central cosmological diagram of the entire Western esoteric tradition--the kabbalistic Tree of Life. Leet shows that the Kabbalah and its central diagram enshrine a key to the purpose of the cosmos, a key that has vast implications for modern physics and cosmology.
In a final synthesis, she envisions a culmination in which the universe and its divine child, perfected humanity, achieve that unification of the finite and infinite which has ever been the secret doctrine of the Kabbalah.

The Kabbalah is divided into three branches—the theoretical, the meditative, and the practical. While many books, both in Hebrew and English, have explored the theoretical Kabbalah, virtually nothing has been published regarding the meditative methods of these schools. This is the first book published in any language that reveals the methodology of the Kabbalists and stresses the meditative techniques that were essential to their discipline. Kaplan offers a lucid presentation of the mantras, mandalas, and other devices used by these schools, as well as a penetrating interpretation of their significance in light of contemporary meditative research.
In addition, Meditation and Kabbalah presents relevant portions of such meditative texts as the Greater Hekhalot (textbook of the Merkava School), the writings of Abraham Abulafia, Joseph Gikatalia's Gates of Holiness, Gate of the Holy Spirit (textbook of the Lurianic School), and the important meditative hasidic classics. Also investigated is the intriguing possibility, suggested by the Zohar, that the meditative methods of the East might have been derived from the mystical techniques of the prophets.

Consulting plant spirits for spiritual and psychological guidance and healing
• Reveals how, by communing with the deva or spirit of a plant, we can call forth its medicine without even needing to ingest it
• Includes wisdom from the devas of 13 herbs, such as rosemary, datura, and uva ursi
• Empowers readers with the tools to develop their own inner resources for healing in relationship with the plant devas around them
Each plant has a story to share with us, a healing story to guide us in trying times, a spirit medicine for the New Earth that is presently unfolding. Herbs are some of the most powerful allies we have for these transitional times--we just need to learn how to listen as they share their knowledge with us.
In Wisdom of the Plant Devas, Thea Summer Deer reveals a new dimension of herbal medicine, one where the plant’s spirit is consulted for guidance and healing beyond the physical. Examining the botany, modern and traditional uses, history, and folklore of 13 special herbs, such as rosemary, uva ursi, and datura, she shares divinations and messages from their devas, or plant spirits, explaining how these stories carry the herbs into our lives, letting them work their magic on us. Exploring herbal medicine from an energetic perspective, she reveals that by communing with the deva of a plant, we can call on the plant’s physical, psychological, and spiritual medicine and guidance--without ingesting it or even being in its presence.
Detailing the sacred space of a Medicine Wheel Garden, whether in a backyard or our imaginations, she connects us with the devas and empowers us to seek our own answers with their much-needed spiritual guidance and divinatory advice. Creating a bridge between botanical medicine and plant spirit medicine, she shows how by coming into community with the devas and co-creating with the world of nature, we can gain tremendous insights to help heal our hearts, our minds, and our spirits and consciously evolve as together we birth the New Earth.

A practical guide to understanding and awakening the human energy body
• Shows how the energy body forms our reality from the infinite possibilities presented by our thoughts, feelings, and those around us
• Illustrates the anatomy of the energy body, including its connections to the nervous system, chakras, and meridians
• Provides step-by-step exercises to awaken the energy body, expand awareness, and begin consciously creating your own reality
At a time when consciousness and other aspects of our energetic anatomy are finding their way into modern science, Kenneth Smith blends traditional shamanism with cutting-edge research in bioenergetics, neuroscience, and psychology to offer this user’s guide to the energy body--explaining what it is, what its capabilities are, and how to harness it as a vehicle for higher consciousness and heightened awareness.
For more than 5,000 years, shamans of the Toltec tradition have worked with the energy body, learning its structure and perceptual capacities as well as mapping it as an ob
Nicolas Poussin, célèbre peintre du XVIIe siècle, contemporain de Louis XIV, est-il venu à Rennes-le-Château? Quel redoutable secret recèle cette toile les Bergers d'Arcadie, qu'il a peinte à l'apogée de sa gloire et qui lui a permis de s'élever au rang des maîtres du classique français?
Daniel Dugès, chercheur obstiné et cryptographe aguerri, n'a pas craint de braver les tabous. Il lui a fallu, en effet, beaucoup d'abnégation pour suivre certaines pistes, qui se sont révélées le plus souvent sacrilèges, voire hérétiques.
L'énigme de Rennes-le-Château mérite-t-elle d'être résolue, fut-ce au prix de voir nos croyances voler en éclats? L'auteur, en tous cas, n'affirme jamais sans preuves.
Nicolas Poussin, a famous painter of the seventeenth century, a contemporary of Louis XIV, has come to Rennes-le-Château? What terrible secret that holds the canvas Shepherds of Arcadia, which he painted at the height of his fame and allowed him to rise to the rank of the masters of French classic?
Daniel Dugès, obstinate researcher and seasoned cryptographer, was not afraid to defy taboos. It took, in fact, a lot of dedication to follow some tracks that were most often sacrilegious or heretical.
The mystery of Rennes-le-Château deserves it to be resolved, even at the price to see our beliefs shattered? The author, in any case, does not says without proof. MsSVig

Two interesting, ecstatic and long songs directly from Sikh tradition:
Side A - Bhagat Kabir
Side B - Sheikh Farid (for both see complete covers details in English)
These songs are from The holy granth, the Shri Guru Granth.
The holy granth consists of hymns and writings by the first nine Sikh Gurus, along with religious text from different Muslim and Hindu saints like: Kabir Ji, Baba Sheik Farid Ji, Bhagat Namdev, Bhagat Rav Dass Ji, etc. The Shri Guru Granth itself is considered the 11th and final Guru, and the Sikh's holiest religious text. It was made so by Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji.

As the illustrious Lochen Ngok, a great translator from the New Schools of Later Translations of Tibet, said:
Vairotsana's knowledge is equal to the sky,
Ka and Chok are like the sun and the moon, and
Rinchen Zangpo is like a star at dawn.
Before them I am like a butterfly.
Worthy of this praise, the great translator Vairotsana, crown ornament of all the Indian and Tibetan scholars, who was equal in realization and accomplishment to the second buddha from Oddiyana, extended the life force of the Buddhist teachings and living beings in Tibet in one lifetime. Understanding that his wondrous biography, the Great Image, is indispensable for spreading the light of the Dharma all over the world these days, the faithful Ani jinba, born in Holland, translated this into English and checked it with many learned ones. Having seen the need for this publication, the old Dilgo Khyentse wrote this foreword. May it be virtuous.

Extract from Introduction:
Particularly, when one reads any books about Dharma, including the histories of sublime beings, I must beg readers first to recognize the characteristics of the two different kinds of magic. Black magic is the suffering of samsara that tortures beings who are grasping at unreal phenomena such as time, place, and the similarity or dissimilarity of the nature of beings and their ideas, while thinking they are real. These beings circle between rejection and acceptance and continuously suffer because there is no certainty that phenomena exist. This black magic should be abandoned because it always lures us, pretending to be true, even though it is not, created by deluded habit as it is. White magic, on the other hand, is the manifestation of wisdom qualities of all sublime beings, which is the non-grasping freedom of the display of unobstructedness, without any thought of anything within time and space or of the similarity or dissimilarity of the nature of beings and their ideas, and without rejection or acceptance, manifesting continuously in exaltation because no certainty or uncertainty exists within nondualistic wisdom. White magic always brings us the inspiration of joy, always creates love and faith, and always brings about compassion and wisdom, which are the sources of enlightenment, not pretending to be either real or unreal, which is the uncreated manifestation of self-accomplishment.
So whenever we have the time and space, we should read biographies of sublime beings and ponder their qualities in order to receive their blessings and go beyond time and space as they have done. There are many biographies of sublime beings from Tibet; among them, one of the most precious is the life history the Great Image of Vairotsana.

Extract from Second Introduction:
I would like to suggest that you not read this biography as an ordinary novel. Reading novels about love and anger only creates attachment or hatred accordingly. Reading complicated books will just cause dullness. Many philosophical texts have already been translated into English, so I feel that it is now very beneficial to make biographies available. You see, worldly life is based on mimicking. Whoever mimics best is the most successful, even among Dharma practitioners. . .
People sometimes say, "I don't know what the Dharma is or how to practice it," while holding a difficult book on Madhyamaka. They are like travelers without a guide. If they would read biographies, they would know how the great beings of the past lived, how they found their guru and treated and served him. By reading their biographies you can learn how tolerant you should be. . .
Seeing how the great beings of the past acted will help one's practice very much. Biographies, like this one, can have a very positive influence on your life, so you should keep an open mind about it. You may find that there is a lot of repetition, but in one's daily life things are repeated all the time. You should be tolerant when reading these repetitions; it is Tibetan st
There are many general Dzogchen teachings, but it is very hard to find a real Dzogchen practitioner, a Dzogchenpa. . .
So, while reading this biography, you should use Vairotsana as an example of how to act, practice, and contemplate and try to become like him.

The "Yijing" (I Ching) or "Book of Changes" was originally a manual of divination that gradually, over time became the repository of all a practical philosophy to face the vicissitudes of life. The long period during which its development takes place, beginning at about the ninth century BC, we must add a whole huge tradition of glosses and commentaries that have been added over the centuries by many different authors, reaching to this day, which makes it the most influential text in China for the last three thousand years, not to mention the great echo that has had on Western culture.
This edition is the first complete direct translation from Chinese into Spanish. To carry it out, translators, deeply familiar with the Chinese language and culture, have taken into account recent linguistic and archaeological findings gathered by experts in the last fifty years, and a detailed comparative study of the text with other works of the same time. But also, for the first time, are added to the aphorisms of the sixty-four figures and the Ten Wings, the famous comments of Wang Bi (226-249), one of the most important Chinese thinkers of all time. Wang Bi was a Taoist, legalist and Confucian philosopher who despite dying prematurely at twenty-three, with his glosses exerted a huge influence for more than seven centuries. Then they would be replaced by Confucian official versions, to stay later forgotten for ten centuries. The rescue of his eclectic vision of the "Yijing" returns this great classic from China to its authentic and original sources.
