What is BaZi (八字)?

BaZi, which translates as "Eight Characters," is a technique utilised in ancient China to analyse or decode one's life path.

A life path is usually referred to as a person's 'Destiny'.

In its original form, BaZi is neither religious nor superstitious.

It basically tabulates a collection of data for analysis purposes using one's date of birth and solar time of birth.

Master Xu ZiPing (A.D 907-960) later restructured and expanded on this technique, which became known as 'ZiPing BaZi'. BaZi is also known as the 'Four Pillars of Destiny' in some schools.
