Trigram Notes: "Chien", Heaven

Chien is the trigram traditionally translated as “Heaven”. 

It is pure Yang, solid and unbroken. It is the celestial power, all the energy of creating, strong, the cold force, the masculine, the phallus, light, the father. 

It is the quality of forcefulness. Its key spiritual concept is “Creative”.

Chien is the great creative force.  Being active in nature, it always has a dominating influence over the other trigrams present in hexagrams where Chien is present.  More understanding regarding the Heaven trigram can be gleaned from studying Hexagram #1, which is Heaven doubled. There is also added commentary on this subject in the Confucian commentaries. Additional information are presented on these in the Curriculum of Level 2 of the Yi Fa Society
