British-born philosopher, author, and speaker Alan Watts is well-known for interpreting of Eastern philosophy for his western audience. This one hour long video contains a lecture given by Watts regarding the I Ching, an ancient Chinese book or manual consisting of divine teachings regarding the eight symbolic trigrams and sixty-four hexagrams. The interpretation of this book is based on the age-old principles of yin and yang.
I Ching is one of the five classics of Confucianism and has been considered by westerners who read it as a profound manual because it leaves readers amazed and baffled at the same time. Those who read it believe they understand what I Ching is trying to convey but unfortunately, have a different interpretation as the Chinese literati. This video sets the records straight about the I Ching.
