Ancient people observed the nature and universe very closely and came up with yin yang concept. In their eyes, no single being or form could exist unless it was seen in relation to its surrounding environment. By simplifying these relationships, they tried to explain complicated phenomena in the universe.
The yin yang sign is a symbol of completeness. Yin energy comes upwards from the earth. It is moist and cooling. It moves upwards through the yin channels. Yang energy comes down from the sun and sky. It is warm and invigorating. It runs downwards through the yang channels . yin and yang are opposite but complementary to one another.
