    Good for you. Thanks in advance. I would translate Di Tian Sui (Disclosed Heavenly Essence of Bazi) if my primary interest was still in Bazi.

    Now I just translate TBSS.

    Just a suggestion: Instead of translating the ancient text, translate a modern edition re-written in modern language (白话). There are also modern editions with the important points summarized, so it's clearer and easier for you. Unless you like ancient language so much for its "original flavour", then by all means start with the ancient text.

    And this goes to show, even for thoroughly researched and tested theories like DTS, it is not working for (and not agreeable by) some practitioners. For me, I just use, if not working this time, I just keep aside. Maybe will work for another time. I don't want to waste too much time testing and testing.

    Hi everyone. I want to say that I'm v grateful
    for all the karma points given to me so far.
    But at the same time, I'm also v discouraged.
    I put in so much effort trying to
    understand the difficult Chinese.
    But after translating 4 chapters,
    I still never learn anything from
    the text I translate!! How come like that?

    Ok fair enough maybe I learn something, but it will
    take another 1000 year to understand what I translate!

    I do understand Chinese.
    I might as well be spending time
    on other easier texts no?
    Like Zi Ping Zhen Quan
    or San Ming Tong Hui?
    Sigh.

    This is just a rant sorry lol

    Jellynut I think I try to find
    yr Gui pillar text in DTS first.
    Cos by the time I'm able to
    finish all 63 chapters,
    my brain will be ... Lol

    Jia you @existentialistalbert !! You  may not understand now but after few reading, you will get it... DTS is very cryptic though...

    ....................

    From what I see, you're embarking on a difficult-to-read ancient language edition. You might want to try to pick up an easier-to-read 白话 edition like the below.



    And don't be discouraged by some members' opinions that we need to be Phd holders in order to be qualified to translate or need to read ancient text for the full contents. They just enjoy giving "opinions" without contributing anything substantial. "Empty vessels make the most noise."

    You're making good progress. Keep it up.

    @existentialistalbert

    The key to your quest is dedication. You barely translated couple chapters, how can one understand the depth of ocean by standing at the shore. Dive in and enjoy the process, eventually it will all come together.

    Also, being a non-Chinese learner, I am excited to read your translations.

    Keep it up!
