Full color with a foreword by Wudang Master Tseng Yun-Xiang. Max Wright shows how the well-known t'ai chi (yin-yang fishes) diagram portrays the entire process of creation in exquisite detail. The essentially Taoist foundation of the t'ai chi symbol is laid down by the ancient sage Lao Tzu in the 'Tao Te Ching'. Westerners often find it difficult to fathom the metaphorical language of the Chinese classics, but here, layered in for the first time, is the combination of the bagua or trigrams of the 'I-Ching' plus the essence of the Vedic teachings of ancient India - to deepen our understanding and illuminate the symbolism within the diagram, building a truly complete system for understanding our reality. Practical principles are explained using the popular martial art of T'ai Chi Ch'uan. By describing the processes as they work in our busy daily lives, including the modern business arena, the text takes something very subtle, very precious, and makes it plain to see on the surface of life. With a new perspective, we can see how the innocent result of an individual practice - working consciously from the deepest level of Nature's functioning - can result in a happy and peaceful world community, the ultimate aspiration of the martial arts and enlightened people, from every tradition, all over the world.
