Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you're unsure of the purpose of the I Ching - get this book. If your understanding of the function of yang and yin is incomplete - read and contemplate on, hexagrams One and Two. Read one hexagram a day and the exercise produces a comprehensive view of the I Ching and its many uses, whether psychologically, strategically or spiritually. In fact, follow instructions.
More importantly a practical and insightful understanding develops with regard to Personal Progression in one or all of these areas.
Recommended to anyone whose Personal Development Program includes the development of others. Not just for Buddhists, as the title might suggest.

Extremely profound writing, simply can't be written without a lot of wisdom. However, most people today would not understand even a slight bit of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Refreshing Point of View 6 Aug. 2013
By Kim Trotman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The I Ching has been a constant inspiration to me for years. This rendition combines Buddhism and Taoism for a deeper expression of the ancient text. If you have an interest in Buddhist teaching and practice I believe this book will enrich your contemplative work and enhance your understanding of this classic work in a most useful way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Translation of a Classic 1 April 2008
By C. J. Guleff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I originally purchased this translation to see what a Buddhist treatment of the I Ching would look like. I already had a number of other translations, including some of the "standards" or "classics." This has since become one of my most-used I Ching editions. I use it to understand the basic text of each hexagram (Judgement, Image, Lines, etc.) before I read other commentaries. This edition is useful even for readers who are not particularly interested in the Buddhist commentary.
