京房八宮卦新義

The New Paradigm of Jin Fang Eight Palaces Gua

The basic Eight Palaces Gua is arranged in the order of Kin, Chan, Ham, Kan, Kwan, Shun, Lei and Tui, with Kin commands 3 sons while Kwan accords 3 daughters. Such systematic arrangement with little changes cannot explain the Yin and Yang concept and the changes within. On the other hand author has different view on such issue.

八宮卦序

The Arrangement of Eight Palaces Gua

The arrangement of Eight Palaces Gua in order of Kin, Chan, Ham, Kan, Kwan, Shun, Lei and Tui, with Kin commands three sons while the Kwan accords three daughters, this is the general conviction of most I-Ching scholars. With no dispute that Jin Fang finding was base on the text of “Shui Gua Chuan”. It is based on the arrangement of Eight basic Guas as Eight palaces; with each Gua has it own six Yaos, called ‘Chong Gua”, the two sets of three Yaos stack on each other to become six Yaos of ‘Chong Gua’. Every palace gradually changing the first Yao to become a new Gua. For instant, six Yaos of Kin Gua with changes in first Yao has resulted first three Yaos still a Kin Gua and the upper three Yaos become Shun Gua called Tian Feng Guo Gua and so on. The fourth changes swayed away from Kin and change from Kin to Kwan. As a result of such conflict with Kwan Gua, therefore the six changes revert back to fourth Yao changes, as result Fire Earth Chun Gua emerged as Yu Wen Gua and last Gua with Gui Wen Gua. Such changes are acceptable and recognized by many scholars and also the sole explanation on Jin Fang Eight Palaces thus far.  So far such changes would only explain the changes in the Gua within the eight palaces and nowhere to explain the Yin and Yang concept.  ‘Jin Shi Yi’ constantly discussed the Yin and Yang in line with the concept of changes that evolved around Yin and Yang, with Yin set and Yang rise and vice versa. Such changes involve the cosmic and human indefinitely. 

I-Ching scholar arranged the Eight Palaces Gua accordingly but that could not be his intention to begin with. Such arrangement did have flaws and sad to know that it cannot perform to fullest. For example, how the 4 main Guas and 4 corners Guas perform and function appropriately? How to interpret the meaning of ‘Fei Pu Yu Qiu’? Every Gua and every Yao has its own Yin and Yang, Si and Ying’s Yin and Yang, the Lok Shu magic number’s trail and so on. Today let me explain briefly such queries. 

洛書軌跡

Lo Shu Trail

‘Jin Shi Yi Chuan’ mentioned that Fire and Metal in Period 2 combined as Earth’s Koon, it is a conviction that the Eight Palaces Gua is based on the Lok Shu magic numbers, 94 as metal, 16 as water 27 as fire, 38 as wood and things repeat it selves every ‘six’ multiple, it is related to eight sequential steps of life journey which begin with start, ignite, journey, experience, fly, hibernate, swim and return. That as a result the 64 Guas are emerged. The observation of comic stars and the changes of topography or landform in which end up with the beginning is synonymous with life and death of living beings.

 ‘Start’ is explained as a mother who gave birth to new born and the baby start to cry and relevant to the beginning of life force, ‘Journey’ is the journey of life, ‘experience’ is the process of going through the path that might bump into ups and downs of life, which is also the ugliness and happiness of living beings. ‘Chung’ is the sickness and aging process that lead to death. ‘Fly’ is the emotion and feelings related to happiness, kindness and Yang part of life, ‘Hibernate’ is hidden with opportunities and threats, unforeseen circumstances and sadness or Yin part of life. ‘Wander’ is path of life after death and ‘Return’ is associated with reincarnation of living beings. ‘Begin’ is associated with the beginning and ending of life forces. 

卦之陰陽

Yin and Yang of Guas

Heaven (Cosmic) is Yang, Earth is Yin, and The 8 Palaces of Guas is divided is equally to:

32 Yang Guas.

The Yang Guas are: Kin, Gou, Dun, Pei, Shun, Siao Xu小畜, Jia Ren家人, Yi, Kan, Pen, Da Xu大畜, Seun, Kwan, Pu, Lin, Tai, Chan,Yee, Kai, Hang, Tui, Kun, Sui, Xian,Ham, Ji, Tun, kei ji 既濟, Lei, Rui, Ding, wei ji未濟. 

32 Yin Guas

The Yin Guas are:Kwun, mok, Chin, Da Yu大有, Wu Mang无妄, Ser He噬嗑, Yi, Gu, Kwai, Li, Chong Fu中孚, Chien, Da Chuang大壯, Kui, She, Pi, Shen, Jing, Da Guo大過, Chui, Jin, Chian, Xiao Guo小過, Kui Mei歸妹, Ker, Feng, Ming Ye明夷, Ser, Mong, Huan, Zhong, Dong Ren同人. 

The combination of both Yin and Yang existed in line with the formation of Guas that begin with Fly, Hibernate, Wander and Return in ‘Chong Gua’ with the track of Lok Shu magic square. This is critical symmetrically to the journey of life forces

Chu Xi mentioned ‘The ignition of Heaven and Earth has resulted in Yin and Yang, the interaction of the two energies has created life forms and forces. This creation has led to the forming of identify. Life and death, male and female, static and dynamic, contract and expand, up and down, whole and part, solid versus gases and the list goes.  Jin Fang has placed great emphasis on the Yin and Yang concept. This has led to the conviction of using Eight Palaces Gua. The Yin and Yang not limited to the Eight Palaces Gua but the Yaos in between the Guas. This is the real essence to explain life form.

《京房八宮卦新義》

八宮卦的基本認可排序為乾震坎艮坤巽離兌,謂乾統三男,坤統三女.

此種排列方法只能夠說明八宮卦系統性,嚴謹性地變動,而它不能說明陰陽之道.作者對此有另一番見解. 

八宮卦序

易學大師普遍將八宮卦排序為乾 震 坎 艮 坤 巽 離 兌,謂乾統三男,坤統三女,這是普遍易學大師的認同,均認為京氏取義于《說卦傳》.而它的排演方法是以八個基本卦為八宮,自身重卦而成本宮卦.例如:乾卦由三畫爻重疊三畫爻構成六畫爻為乾卦,其它七卦如此類推.每宮逐步改變每一爻,為一個新卦,如:乾卦六爻,初爻陽變為陰,外卦為乾,內卦為巽,為天風姤,其它如此類推.當逐步向上變演變時,到乾宮上爻,再變坤卦,故與坤宮有所抵觸了,所以將第六次變動改為四爻變,為游魂爻火地晉,下一爻為歸魂爻,乾卦外爻變內卦,剛第四爻變時為離卦,為外卦,為火天大有,其它七宮如此類推.這種逐步變爻方法,普遍來說都被大部份易學大師所認同,也是他們唯一對京氏八宮卦解釋推演.此種排列方法只能夠說明八宮卦系統性,嚴謹性地變動,而它不能說明陰陽之道,《京氏易》處處論陰陽,”易者變也,陰極則陽來,陰消則陽長”,而此種逐爻變方法只能說明到爻中陰陽,不能明確地顯示卦中也有陰陽,說明宇宙之道,人事之道.

易學大師將八宮卦此此排列,也許並不是先師原意,此種排列將會漏失很多及隱藏了很多寶藏,難以發揮八宮卦全面性功能,甚為可惜.例如:四隅四正卦如何演成?飛伏游歸本身意義?不單只爻中有陰陽每一卦也有陰陽之分,世應的陰陽,洛書數軌等,今天便由我來粗略簡單地說. 

洛書軌跡

《京氏易傳》”金火二運合土宮”,其明顯地說明八宮卦是根據洛書數而構成,九四為金,一六為水,二七為火,三八為木,周流六虛,起始經歷飛伏游歸八種人生歷程,構成八宮六十四卦(見八宮圓圖).不單只”仰之以觀天文,俯之察于地理”,易曰:”原始返終”,說明生死之說.

”始”解作人生從母胎開始呱呱落地成長;”經”長大階段學習過程;”歷”人生悲歡離合喜怒哀樂,種種人生百態,也嘗透了;”終”生老病死,此乃人生無法避免的歷程;”飛”飛揚,飄逸,開心,善的一面,良的一面,明的一面;”伏”人生隱藏種種危機,未能遇知得見,看得見,也謂暗的一面,苦的一面;”游”死後道路,游離境界,不願多談,此乃中國人傳統觀念;”歸”再道輪迴出世;”起”起也,起也謂開端,也謂終結. 

卦之陰陽

陽為天,陰為地,八宮六十四卦分三十二卦為陽,乾,姤,遯,否,巽,小畜,家人,益,艮,賁,大畜,損,坤,復,臨,泰,震,豫,解,恆,兌,困,萃,咸,坎,節,屯,既濟,離,旅,鼎,未濟.三十二卦為陰,觀,剝,晉,大有,无妄,噬嗑,頤,蠱,睽,履,中孚,漸,大壯,夬,需,比,升,井,大過,隨,蹇,謙,小過,歸妹,革,豐,明夷,師,蒙,渙,訟,同人.以上乃是八宮卦之六十四卦卦分陰陽之序.《京氏易傳》”陽中有陰,陰中有陽”,陽卦由起,始,經,歷,重卦而成為陽,陰卦由飛,伏,游,歸,重卦所組成.其軌跡為洛書數,詳述見(宇宙運動規律圖譜).

朱熹云:”天地只是一氣便分陰陽,緣有陰陽二氣相感,化生萬物,故事物未常無對.氣分陰陽,陰陽為氣故有性質.陰陽二氣猶如天地,生死,男女,動靜,屈伸,往來,升降,闔辟.陰陽變化無窮,萬物因而得之以生生”.京氏易以陽變陰即返回陽道,陰變陽即返回陰道,陰極則陽來,陽來則陰消,從此點我們便知道,京氏易無不提及陰陽之道,以陰陽之氣的進退之消長,來說明八宮卦的陰陽合理性.不單只爻要陰陽,卦也要陰陽,這才符合八宮卦的真諦,這才合說明世間人事萬物之道.(見八宮卦新義)


世應

易學大師將八宮卦的世爻定在誰爻變動誰爻持世,例如:乾宮初爻動,天風姤為一世爻持世.世間萬事萬物必要有磨合相盪,事物才會有發展.男和女,善和惡,悲與歡,交與合等等,此事無容讓我再多序了!于是設有應爻之分.乾鑿度”動于地上則應于天上;動于地之中則應于天之中;動于地之下則應于天之下”.換言之初爻持世便四爻應,二爻持世便五爻應,三爻持世上爻應四爻持世初爻應,五爻持世二爻應,上爻持世三爻應,這是普遍認受之觀念.但從中我們有沒有看到世應分陰陽之道理在裡邊呢?它只能表示動于地則應于天之概念.

《京氏易傳》”乾”六位純陽,陰象在中;”坤”陰中陽,氣稱萬象.在新義中,世為陽,應為陰,應為陽,世為陰,世中有陽,應中有陰,三爻四爻陰陽互有,是應孔子之理,中庸之道,事物要有中庸之道,陰陽互見(見圖)
