This Practice has been included to help Shinpiden students gain a better understanding of the kanji Dai from Daikomyo. The kanji of Dai means great, big, and most interestingly human. Therefore internalising this kanji supports the practitioner in a greater understanding of the Shinpiden level and the tools it utilises.
This technique also brings you into working with the interconnectedness of dual elements (such as heaven and Earth, Moon and Sun) working towards Oneness. Here you can see some of the relationships that the term ‘duality’ encompasses. The Moon and the Sun are specifically used in this technique. However, they also represent other forms of duality.
Earth – Moon – Feminine – Left
Heaven, – Sun – Masculine – Right
