The I Ching in the Shinto Thought of Tokugawa Japan

Recommended Posts

A fascinating article about attitudes toward the Yijing by Japanese Confucian, Shinto, and Confucian-Shinto intellectuals:


Some "orthodox" and some rather outlandish ones too, such as:


Alas! When the realms of humans and gods began to separate, our god,

Okuni-nushi-no-kami, also called the Holy Fu Hsi by the Chinese, went

across the ocean to China and taught the foolish people about morality. The

I Ching was made as a tool for this purpose.
