Lung - Yin Organ (by SQY)

When i first saw this symbol, i relates it to religion, but in my learning path as yoga practitioner, i started to understand the hidden meaning within this symbol, that is about the Yin (阴) & the Yang (阳)which is closely related to our life!
Yin & Yang Symbol

Yang represents Sun, Male, or anything that is Bright, Energetic, Movement, etc.

Yin represents Moon, Female or anything that is Dark, Slow, Stagnant, etc.

So there is always Yang within Yin, Yin within Yang

Our organs also classified into its Yin and its Yang.

Lung is one of the Yin organ in our body, its partner organ ie Yang is Large Intestine.

All of us know the basic function of the Lung is about breathing. When we breath, Qi (气)moving in & out of our body through nose (sometimes mouth) and this is how the energy circulate to keep us alive.

During our day, we involve in activities (ie Yang) and feel tire after too much Yang. Hence, we need to replenish our Qi by resting our body (ie Yin).

There are many ways to nourish your Lung's Qi,  You can try this before you go to bed or whenever you feel tire after long day of work.
