New I Ching/Yijing translation
The I Ching/Yijing text on this site was changed, as of March 2007. It has been replaced by one made by the author of this site, translated from the original Chinese text.
I also made a more simple and clear consultation page, that only shows the relevant hexagram texts. I decided not to add the text which is called "The Image" in the Wilhelm/Baynes translation that used to be on this website. This text was written later than the core text of the I Ching, and in my view it doesn't always fit particularly well with the original hexagram texts, while it is built upon a different value system. With The Image come the trigrams, which I also decided to leave out, as I think that the core text can speak for itself.
I've found the core text of the I Ching to be inaccurately translated by Wilhelm/Baynes. Also, this text is, in fact, more sexist than the original Chinese text, and it adds elements of Christianity that have nothing to do with the ancient Chinese culture the I Ching is coming from. Therefore, I do not recommend using it.
The I Ching from this website is now also available as an eBook for the Amazon Kindle.
