Chinese Dreams Dictionary
The author of the Chinese dream book is Zhou-Gong, who was one of the sons of Wen-Wang’s son, who was ranked among the most notable representatives of the Zhuuss dynasty (XI century BC). Zhou-Gong as author of interpretations and prophecies was extremely authoritative, he introduced many innovations to the methodology of traditional fortune-telling systems, he is one of the authors of "Cyclic Transformations", "Chou-I", which are considered perhaps the most authoritative publications in the philosophical directions of Chinese science.
The collection of interpretations of Zhou-Gong, or as it is commonly called the "Chinese Dream Book", is usually included in the content of calendars and other similar publications, this edition is very popular in the open spaces of Southeast Asia. Similarly, it should not be forgotten that the dream book of Zhou-Gong was very popular among the ancient Chinese healers, which makes its authority even more justified and time-tested. However, it should be noted that the use of the book in medicine was inherent only to individual physicians of China, because the pedantry of the majority of doctors prevented them from trusting the ancient scripture.
The Chinese dream book educates the reader in a special way about dreams, their evaluation and the application of their instructions. This is not surprising, because it is China that is famous for its respect for all that has been given from above, therefore dreams in those parts have always been interpreted with a special predilection. The collection of interpretations of Chou-Gong first of all assesses the dream as an invaluable message of the gods, not to appreciate the dignity that an unforgivable mistake. Moreover, the content of this publication does not tie the interpretation to the orientations of the Eastern religions, therefore it can not be perceived as very limited in terms of mentality. But despite this, the Chinese almanac is unlikely to be useful to representatives of European countries, because the manners of China are far from those that exist in Europe, and at earlier stages of the historical ladder these differences were even more striking.
This collection of interpretations will be equally useful to everyone who is interested in the culture of the East. Regardless of how this or that person relates to dreams. Because the content of this publication perfectly reflects the culture of China in its peak period. Therefore, to pass this dream book can only indifferent to the history of China the reader. The interpretations of this edition are imbued with the spirit of the East and the atmosphere of the sacrament of customs and customs there. The Chinese Dream Book includes twenty-one sections, each dedicated to its own unique topic. Such a structure is justified, because this avoids confusion as to which interpretation to apply.
