天玉内传, 即青囊奥语, 挨星五行, 玄空大卦之理.
杨公妙用, 止有一法, 更无二门, 此乃反复其词, 以授曾安公者也.
但南北东西, 应有四卦；而此云三卦者, 缘玄空五行, 八卦排来, 止有三卦故也.

Heavenly Jade internal transmission, indeed Green Satchel profound Sayings, leaning stars 5 elements, XuanKong DaGua principles. YangGong subtle applications, only has one method, further without 2 doors, such indeed repeat the words, as taught by ZengGong. River south, north, east and west, Zeng’s preface already annotated, yet south, north, east and west should have 4 Gua yet this says 3 Gua. Affinity with XuanKong 5 elements, 8 Gua arranged only have 3 Gua.
These phrase referred to XK Leaning Star that form the basis for XuanKong DaGua XKDG principles. It refers mainly to Star Period – XingYun. The North Dipper Star groups the Parent Gua as North and South River Gua while the Children Gua as River East and River West Gua. These are the 4 Gua instead of 3. Matching XuanKong Elements to the 8 Gua – there are only 3 Gua… The secret of XKDG is within the understanding of the Direct/Indirect spirits of the one Gua in 8 directions and so forth…
If you really understand what Jiang DaHung is trying to say, our common understanding of Direct/Indirect spirits on timeliness are all wrong!
The Late LiDingXin Commentaries on Jiang’s Annotation in DLBJ:
This SanHe grandmaster took a narrow interpretation on Jiang’s annotation by condemning that Jiang did not understand the meaning of River East and West. His reference of 8 spirits to the 8 Gua shows that he has very little understanding of the classics. Furthermore, the 4 referring to the 4 positions are all incorrect.
However, some SanYuan School feels that Jiang purposeful deviation of the classics indeed is to hide the SanYuan approach in understanding YinYang. He is presenting a total different view of approaching the same matter in different light – using the 64 Hexagram instead of the 60 JiaZi of the 72 dragons.
