Body Element (lus)

  • One of the four aspects of elemental divination on the basis of which calculations concerning ill-health may be made in respect of a given year, month, calendar day or hour. The body elements corresponding to the years of the sexagenary cycle form thirty neighbouring or adjacent pairs (lus kyi kha srog sum cu). For the method of calculating the body element of a given year, based on the trigrams and natal year signs, see Part II, p. 000-000. GD (from the Glossary to Tibetan Elemental Divination Paintings)
