The well-known I Ching was originally only one of several works that formed the Ta Pu, the Grand Oracle. It has long been thought that the I Ching's companions had been destroyed, but now, after 2000 years, one of those lost works, through the T'ai Hsuan Ching has been rescued from oblivion.

have one, translation by Derek Walters; T'ai Hsuan Ching : The Hidden Classic and The Alternative I Ching

I have seen at least two, and have one, translation by Derek Walters; T'ai Hsuan Ching : The Hidden Classic and The Alternative I Ching. I have also seen two by Michael Nylan; Elemental Changes and The Canon of Supreme Mystery. I have not yet found either of these books, or any other English book on the Tai Xuan Jing, as either a ebook or pdf. Nor have I found any English Tai Xuan Jing book in the public domain or creative commons.

I get so annoyed everytime I read the snarky review on this page stating that Nylan was more scholarly and more correct. Nothing could be further from the truth. 700 pages of Nylan's work and there is only ONE sentence about Jen at all, stating it is signified by a twice broken line. WRONG. And she offers no citation. She sidesteps around this throughout the entirety of the hundreds of pages. Why is it so hard in Academia to say I DONT KNOW WHYI DONT KNOW FOR SURE? It's like some kind of obsessive-compulsive disorder. Derek Walters is not a layman and he really knows the bones of Chinese mathematics. Furthermore throughout her book she doesn't bother to differentiate between Yang the flux value and Yang the author of the THC. The best and for a while the only translation of the THC available in English. Derek Walters is a British scholar who is both charming and animated in real life and his writing style. He truly loves the work and has a real understanding of the THC. The later work by Michael Nylan analyzes the cultural and literary pedigree but misses its occult virtues. Nylan's version also offers no charts or diagrams explaining why she says in one small sentence at the beginning that the Jen element is represented by a twice broken line. This is incorrect and has to do with the math of the THC as opposed to the I Ching. They are not the same system and the review above doesn't understand this either. Furthermore if you are looking for a BEAUTIFUL translation the Walters version should be your first choice. Michael Nylan doesn't have a poetic bone in her entire body. She is quite good at analyzing words however, so if you were going to create a new translation you'd probably want both of them for reference. Otherwise just get the Walters version, it's more complete and correct.

This was the first book in English to discuss the Tai Xuan Jing and its 81 tetragrams. So it deserves credit for that.

However, there is a careless error in the chart of tetragrams which I have seen perpetuated by other Internet writers using this book uncritically and reproducing the faulty chart from the book.

The chart in the book shows the unbroken line for "Heaven," the once-broken line for "Man," and the twice-broken line for "Earth."

That is wrong. The correct sequence is Heaven, Earth, and Man. It is "Man" that has the twice-broken line. "Man" is third, after "Heaven" and "Earth", since "Man" is the offspring.

The Chinese text, and the later, scholarly translation of the Tai Xuan Ching (by Michael Nylan), has the correct correlations.

This is important in studying the tetragrams correctly. Otherwise you can write an entire essay and be off-the-mark with your conclusions. So, just to review, Derek Walters (or the publisher) made an error in his chart, and the correct way is:

solid line for "Heaven"
once-broken line for "Earth"
twice-broken line for "Man"
