Yin Yang

 

What is Yin Yang?

 

      

Harmony is the law of Life, discord it's shadow, whence springs suffering,

the teacher, the awakener of consciousness.

 

The Chinese Yin/Yang symbol represents harmony between opposites. In Chinese philosophy, Yin and Yang represent the two primal cosmic forces in the universe. The two opposite attributes yield to one another endlessly. The dark dot in the white area and the white dot in the dark area show the interdependency of the two. All opposites exist in harmony with each other.

For example, how can you appreciate the warmth of a Summer day without
experiencing the cold of a freezing Winter?

How can you enjoy the relaxation of a weekend without
reference to a hectic work week?

In the Martial Arts, how can you appreciate the benefits & techniques of a soft style
without reference to a hard style?

Everything behaves as a compliment to it's opposite, yielding and flowing together in harmony.
