I Ching

Chinese book of ancient origin that is considered a means of fortunetelling. It is part of the canon of Confucianism, the quasireligious philosophy that dominated China until the early twentieth century. "I Ching" combines two Mandarin words: yi, which means "divination," and jing, which means "classic" or "book." The I Ching features sixty-four hexagrams-drawings consisting of six lines each-which symbolize supposedly quintessential conditions, such as happiness, humility, innocence, and tranquillity.
