The Meaning of Yangming

The two Yang unite brightness (ming) to form Yangming. Unite here means to converge or to join together, which is the opposite of to divide or to open. It implies that yang qi begins to gather and draw together, changing from a state of issuing and release to a state of accumulation and storage. This understanding of Yangming is equivalent to that of Jueyin, which results from the completion of the exchange of two yin. The interpretation of Yangming will become more evident as we go deeper into its details and place it within the context of the natural world and the cosmos it comprises.
