Song of The Sip Sam Seh
The translation for The Sip
Sam Seh is The Thirteen Influences. These are broken
down into two main groups:
O Heng or Five Elements, which are strategic in
nature and correspond to the five elements in the
metal, wood, earth, fire, and water.
Pahl Gwe or Eight Directions, are spatial and correspond to
the eight points of the compass: N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W,
form a framework which we, through training, learn to manifest the
characteristics of the elemental forces of nature and
blend them with the directional forces to create a
unified whole of which we become a part.
