The I Ching,
also known as the book of change,
is one of the oldest books in the world. The writers of the book
examined the cyclic nature of stars, tide, yearly periods and the world
of animals and plants. At the same time they examined the human world,
family, politics, economics, love, wars and pride. They used 8 trigrams
and 64 hexagrams (that appear in the pendant) to create a system that
shows the interactions in different life fields.
The I Ching is a tool to examine how a human being responds to the processes occurring in the universe. The I Ching gives us the ability to see data and reasons that are usually hidden from us.
Around the pendant is engraved in Hebrew:
“What was will be again, what happened will happen again. There's nothing new under the sun.”
The sentence is taken from Ecclesiastes book written by King Solomon. King Solomon was aware of the cyclic nature of things and with a Buddhist approach wrote this phrase. The I Ching, like King Solomon, shows us how small we are in relevance to the processes occurring in the universe but gives us knowledge with which we can better understand our existence.
The I Ching pendant gives the wearer the understanding of the human place in the universe and the ability to attain great knowledge and power in life.
