  • 1. Symbolism of Yin and Yang Knowing Tao
  • 2. The Yin-Yang symbolism is quite interesting. Yin is the black side with thewhite dot and the Yang is the white side with the black dot on it. Therelationship between them is typically described in terms of a mountainand valley illuminated by the sunlight.Yin, which literally means the ‘shady place’ or ‘north slope’ is the darkarea of the valley, a receptacle or receiving energy and is thus darker inquality. Yang which literally means the ‘sunny place’ or ‘south slope’ isthe mountain, the protruding more outward energy form and also thebrightly lit portion of the symbol.In their dynamic aspect, Yin and Yang symbolize that they trulycompliment and completely merge in each other- to create all ofcreation. Here, Yin represents the primal female energy and Yang, theprimal male energy. The interplay of this male and female primal energycreates everything in this manifested, material world of form and spirit.Sun, which represents the source of light (the Divine Spirit or the essenceof Tao) illuminates this creation and the constant play of Yin and Yang.
