According to a Japanese legend, a white tiger named Byakko was a supernatural, celestial being. He was also the guardian of the West.

Quote of the day:
Be strong when you are weak,Brave when you are scared, &Humble when you are victorious ✨
Fenrir the wolf is bound by the 'Gleipnir Enchanted Rope' ( a thin silk ribbon, stronger than any chain ) ✨ It is Constructed from 6 impossible ingredients: sound of a cat's footsteps, root of a mountain, beard of a woman, breath of a fish, she spittle of a birth, sinews of a bear. If the wolf breaks free, it will kill Odin 😳
In Chinese cosmology, the Universe creates itself out of a primary chaos of material energy, organised into the cycles of Yin & Yang. That are formed into objects and lives ✨ Thus many dualities like light-dark, fire-water, male-female etc. ☯️ Developed before 4th century B.C, the concept describes how obviously opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world. The Yin & Yang are not complete opposites. In fact, it is important that each side has a little bit of the other in it 👌
Such seemingly opposing ( but actually complementary ) forces interact to form a dynamic system. In this system the whole is greater than the parts. Everything in this infinite Universe has both the yin & yang aspects. Either of the 2 major aspects may manifest more strongly in a particular object, depending on the criterion of the observation.

A simillar representation to the Yin & Yang concept can be seen in ancient Hindhuism belief of "Arthanareeswarar" 🙏 . An inseparable from of lord Shiva combined with goddess Parvati depicted as half-male and half-female . The belief dates back pre first century CE!
