Lok Shu Diagram洛書

History of Lok Shu

According to ancient Chinese legends, this formation of magic square has been around for nearly 4,000 years. This pattern of numbers appeared on a gigantic turtle shell in the River Lok (Lok Shu) and was discovered by Emperor Yu.  The Emperor Yu then discovered the fascination pattern formation based on the circular dots of numbers that were arranged in a three by three nine-grid pattern. The total in any direction will add up to 15. The I-Ching, Book of Changes, Flying Star Theory and Chinese astrology are all based on this Lok Shu magic square.                                                                          

(洛書 -載九履一,左三右七,二四為肩,六八為足者,洛書也)
