    Basically, you can go into a chinese CM bookshop blindfolded and just pick any book. Trust me it will be better than any of the diluted english CM books out there!


    Here’s my recommended list of chinese titles:

    Any book from Tu Jie series (It has lots of pics, so what? It’s that good!)








































    By people sharing knowledge/info publicly, the info itself does not devalue to become "common internet data which lacks credibility and needs verifying". If everyone thinks in this way, nobody would want to share anymore in order to protect the value and integrity of their knowledge.

    Wow you are into blindman bazi as well.

    Thanks for generous recommendation.

    About the 6-book ZWDS. I remembered you had praised them so highly. They are what sect exactly?

    Book 1 to 3 = generic San He

    Book 4 to 6 = He Luo sect (IIRC)

    Those who like to dive deeper into the constellations, I recommend these which are more in-depth, complete and comprehensive than that Derek Walter book.





    Part 2 talks about QZSY:

    I saw you reading this topic. What are your top 10 books for ziping bazi books?

    Haha how did you see me? i'm supposed to go unnoticed. 8) 8)


    I might have posted these somewhere but here are 10 of my favorite ZiPing books

    1. 子平真诠

    The most comprehensive, organized, orderly book that teaches traditional Ziping, without the commentary of course. The commentary was helpful when I first started learning. But it contradicts the original texts quite a bit.



    2. 三命通会

    A huge compilation of work. It's like an encyclopedia of traditional Bazi. Contains a lot of information that is not only about ZiPing but also about the fundamentals of Chinese Metaphysics.



    3. 神峰通考

    A lot of inputs from a very experienced practitioner who was a member of the court. Some of his views disagrees with traditional Ziping, he covers partially the other branch of MingLi called 五星. which I never study but I believe is a form of QZSY



    4. 源海子平

    A lot of information in here but rather similar to SMTH, some people say it is the most basic book for ZiPing but also the most advanced book. Which is true. The compilation of classics at the end is certainly very advanced ZiPing.



    5. 星平会海

    A collection of information about WuXing and ZiPing methods, including the Nayin usage to a certain extent. This is another huge encyclopedia of ZiPing and WuXing (QZSY) that was found in mount Wudang, of unknown author



    6. 穷通宝监

    Nicknamed 'the imitation of ZiPing', the concepts are clearly ZiPing with a simplified application. The author clearly had a strong fundamental in ZiPing. This book can be misleading to people who don't have a strong base but it is still a very good reference.



    7. 千里命稿

    One of the most basic books, simplified modern ZiPing. Lots of modern BaZi books contents are taken from this book. Very useful for beginners, simplified concept, easy to understand, basic fundamentals of modern BaZi. I disagree that the author was the most proficient BaZi practitioner in his era because I believe Yuan Shu Shan was the best.



    8. 命理约言

    Authored by Chen SuAn, I never finished reading but I find the content nicely arranged and easy to follow but I still think ZPZQ is the most important of traditional BaZi books.



    9. 滴天髓

    I don't like neither Master Ren's nor the original commentary. I only like the original phrases. The attempts of the commentaries are not concrete enough for me. Explanations are missing everywhere. I don't understand why Master Ren wrote a commentary of a classics to propose his new theory and why he didn't just write a new book instead. He did, however, showed hundreds of case studies to prove his point and was rather convincing with his reasoning.



    10. 命理探源

    I think Yuan ShuShan was better than Xu LeWu and Wei QianLi. This is his book and it is heavy and contains valid references and sources. Read this and know how the concepts came to be.



    There are my favorite 10 ZiPing books in no particular order, some I don't like the contents but they still belong to my favorite list

    thanks but no thanks for "astrology" books.

    I saw a 16-book blindman bazi on sales. Very tempting but I know have no time for that.
