Tai Chi 太极

Tai Chi 太极

Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese practice and is one of the central elements of traditional Chinese culture.

In the Book of Changes (Yijing), the ancient philosophical text in which the concept is first mentioned, Tai Chi is the source and union of the two primary aspects of the cosmos, Yang (active) and Yin (passive).

The Tai Chi philosophy holds that all natural phenomena have two aspects – Yin and Yang. They are the opposite and complementary forces which form the two primary aspects of the universe. Yin and Yang are interdependent and cannot exist independent of one another. If there is no light, one cannot talk about darkness. Without stillness, there is no motion.

Tai Chi philosophy emphasizes the importance of maintaining balance between Yin and Yang – a perspective which applies to all aspects of our daily lives.

太极是中国古代关于自然的哲学,是中国传统文化的核心要素之一。

最早提到这一概念的古代哲学文献是《易经》。在《易经》中,太极是宇宙里阳和阴的来源和结合。

太极认为所有自然现象都有两个方面:阴和阳。它们相对而又互补,是构成宇宙的两个主要方面。阴和阳是相互依存的,它们不能彼此独立地存在。如果没有光亮,就无法谈论黑暗。没有静止,就没有运动的概念。

太极哲学强调保持阴阳平衡的重要性,这个观点适用于我们生活的方方面面。
