Qi Men Dun Jia

Understand the History of Qi Men Dun Jia

Qi Men Du Jia, is classified as an Imperial study of the highest level of divination classics, in both ancient and modern times. It is China’s most valued and treasured divination study. The main reason why it is being held in highest esteem, is because it can help one defeat the enemy and achieve greatest winnings thousands miles away.

The source of Qi Men Dun Jia begins from a fairy tale, of about 8 thousands of years ago. And later in the Zhou dynasty, Jiang Tai Gong used it to defeat the king of Zhou and updated the book to 72 plots. It was later passed on to Zhang Liang, from Huang Shi elder, and Zhang Liang has updated the 72 plots to 118 plots. This is the Qi Men Dun Jia that we are seeing now.

Legend has it that the revolution war led by Mao Ze Dong, who is China’s hero and also world hero, used Qi Men Dun Jia to achieve victory. It is recorded in 1947, Mao Ze Dong at the time he decided to leave Yan An, Zhou En and his army persuaded Mao to leave as soon as possible, but Mao said he has something to do now. At that time, the Kuomintang army has already reached the land on the other side of the river and Mao is not bothered and continued with his matters. When Mao was finally done with his work, his group of armies thought it is time to leave but, Mao did not do so. Instead, he stood at the top of the rock at the river and looked over at the enemy. After some time, he finally said, “It is time to leave” and walked steadily away right under the nose of Chiang Kai-shek’s army.

This is something for us to think about. What was Mao doing at the time and what was he thinking? Was it like Qi Men Dun Jia strategy? He was selecting time and space before action. There are too many interesting stories surrounding Mao and according to his biography, he had been a librarian and left no books unread. With his intellect, it is no wonder how I Ching will become under his wisdom.
