'llie Tibetans use the allocation of space and the seasonal correspondences established by King Wen, using the river Lo as a model. Occasional slight differences exist, such as the reversal of the trigrams Chen and Sun. According to our text:

Starting at the South and moving to the right, [these trigrams] art: found, in order: Li ■ ■ J ¡¡re, Khon — Earth, Da — Metal, Khen — Sky, Kham — Water, Kin — Mountain, Tsin — Woud, and Zm — Wind. Although Sky, Mountain, and Wind are new, lht> .ieiivt, in far.i, from the five elements.

/Vs the text suggests, ihr eight Ilirkii.is are an extension of the theory o| the fr.v elements. (See diagrams opposite,)

Tibetan and Chme$e Ingram,
