New Evidence for the Interpretation of the Chinese Character “Heng” in Yijing (The Book of Changes)

LIU Qing (Chinese Language Document Institute, Southwest Normal University, Chongqing, 400715, China)  
In the popular editions of Yijing (The Book of Changes), the character "Heng" has two controversial interpretations, "prosperity or going smoothly", or "offering sacrifices to gods or ancestors. " However, the customs of the Han and other ethnic peoples offering sacrifices to gods or ancestors before divination by the Eight Diagrams have established strong evidence for the second interpretation. The context of the character "Heng" and some other unearthed and handed-down materials all confirm the possibility that the ancient people would offer sacrifices to gods or ancestors before divination. This is what the character "Heng" conveys and also the new discovery in the studies of Yijing.
