About the Author
Swami Anand Nisarg has been a practitioner of both western magick and eastern mysticism for over twenty years, and has been studying the I Ching for the same length of time. He is the Guru of a Tantric Mystery School lineage, devoted full-time to teaching on the principles of universal mysticism, and works with a focus on encouraging authentic practice for the experience of Truth, choosing to work closely with a small number of dedicated students rather than seeking to appeal broadly to a popular audience. In his work with the Mystery School he has sought to study and express the common core of Eastern and Western Esoteric symbolism.

First of all, his approach is very intuitive and so is his guidance to the reader. His writing is straight forward and down to earth and at the same time very enthusiastic. He also has a very good knack for drawing in those who are accustomed to Western magick and mystical approaches of divination, making comparisons with the Tarot and Kabbalah. The Swami also offers a new approach to casting that is a much better alternative to the three coin method, which eventually gives too many changing lines that can at times stifle a divination. His approach is sheer genius. I really enjoyed his treatment of the Plum Blossom method and his forethought in providing a link that features a Chinese calendar which allows you to reference corresponding dates for the divination was thoughtful. It might seem like a small thing to some, but having read Da Lui's book and having had to struggle with transposing dates, it is very much appreciated. There is so much more to this book than I am incapable of speaking of, not unlike the Tao. If you are a beginner with the I Ching, I highly recommend this book. Even if you have many years of experience, like myself, you will find this book a joy to read. Even an old dog like me learned a few things. I can't say that about most books on the I Ching. I rarely give anything five stars but this book deserves it. It's the book I wish I had written. Ha!
