No references in SD to "I-Ching", it seems. Two references to "Y-King"
found: SD, II, 374 & 486.
One reference to "Book of Changes":
"In China, 1, 3, 5, 7, are called “celestial numbers” in the canonical “Book
of Changes.” (Yi King, or transformation, as in “Evolution”)".
The popular 'divinatory' use of I-Ching is doubtless a distraction.
In passing, there is "A Tentative Translation from the Chinese" by Dr.
Isabella Mears of the "Tao Teh King" published by TPH, London. Seems to
retain something of original key-note.
