If you play Baguazhang or study the Yijing this mat is perfect for you. The center contains a Taiji Tu (Yin & Yang symbol) that is lined up correctly with the Xiantian Bagua or pre-heaven Fuxi arrangement shown as white lines. These inner symbols (gua) present the correct relation of the Yijing gua to the Taiji Tu 太 極 圖 symbol. The outer ring is the Houtian Bagua or later heaven, King Wen configuration and is shown as red lines. It has the gua in their correct sequence for Feng Shui and Numerology. This is a traditional diagram from the Chinese Han Dynasty showing the Early Heaven and Later Heaven trigram sequences directions and numbers in a circular arrangement.
Under the Gua in the Houtian Bagua sequence (outer ring) are symbols that look like Daoist constellations. They are, in reality, representation of each trigrams associated number as used in Feng Shui and Yijing Numerology. Students of the Yijing, Taijiquan, Feng Shui and Daoist methods can frame it or hang it on a wall. If you play Baguazhang you can put it on the floor as a reference point for circle walking and many other exercises.
