Yin Yang Symbolizes The Co-arising & Interdepence Of All Things
Yin-Yang symbolis the best known of the Taoist symbols (also calledTaijitu) .It is a circle divided into two teardrop-shaped halves, one black and one white. Within each half, is embedded a small circle of the opposite colour.
The complete circle represents Tao, the fundamental absolute or wholeness out of which all existence arises.
The white half, yang (“sunny side”) symbolizes the masculine energy or the DOING-ACTIONaspect of the Taijitu.
The black half, yin (“shady side”) symbolizes the feminine energy or the BEING-NON ACTIONcomponent.
Both yang and yin are co-arising and interdependent, continuously transforming one into the other. One could not exists without the other, like night becomes day & day becomes night.
The Qi (“life force” or energy flowing) is arising depending on how yin & yang interplay. That is why it is important to balance yin-yang in a continuous process for harmonization.
