Description

Have you cast your hexagram today?

The I Ching has long been used as an oracle and many different ways coexist to “cast” a reading, i.e., a hexagram, with its dynamic relationship to others. In China the I Ching had two distinct functions. The first was as a compendium and classic of ancient cosmic principles. The second function was that of divination text.

Also known as The Book of Changes, the I Ching is one of the oldest of the Chinese classic texts. The text describes an ancient system of cosmology and philosophy that is intrinsic to ancient Chinese cultural beliefs. The cosmology centers on the ideas of the dynamic balance of opposites, the evolution of events as a process, and acceptance of the inevitability of change.

The Elkins.org version of the I Ching is the most complete yet for the iPhone. This program does not reduce The Book of Changes to a handful of fortune cookie sayings, instead, all sixty-four hexagrams are indexed with full commentary based on the translation from Chinese by Richard Wilhelm. Additionally, a guide to the eight trigrams is included, along with introductory text regarding the genesis of the I Ching and its use in divination.

This program offers a valuable resource for the serious student of the I Ching as well as easy access for casual users.
