Panda 🐼 is in China the living embodiment of Yin and Yang ☯️. He is not the only being living in strong symbolic value. The turtle 🐢 for example is known in China as the holder secrets of heaven and earth🌏. She is too the living representation of Yin, the roundness, slowness and calm being characteristics Yin.
Let's take a closer look this association and the symbol Yin and Yang.
SYMBOLIC YIN AND YANG
Yin and Yang 阴阳 represent two categories at the same time opposed and complementary that one finds in almost all aspects of life and the universe. Yin represents the feminine, as well as various other connotations such as black, moon 🌑, dark, negative, etc. Yang, is associated with lighter figures such as white, the masculine, the sun☀️, light, positive.
The biaoli are dots of opposite colors that recall the link between two concepts, the existence of one is linked to the existence of the other. They also show that in everything that is white there is black, and that conversely, there is neither absolute black nor immaculate white. We can therefore conclude that no one can be considered as entirely bad or good.
PANDA AND YIN AND YANG
Panda is the living embodiment of Yin and Yang ☯️ with its contrasting black and white fur. The Chinese consider that the gentle nature of the panda 🐼 proves how Yin and Yang bring peace and unity when the universe is in balancee. It is because it is a symbol of harmony that the panda is often used in diplomacy by China, because the panda is at the same time a symbol lasting friendship.
YIN AND YANG IN THE KUNG-FU PANDA FILM
What can I say ? A movie 🎥 ingenious and very spectacular ! Realized by Mark Osborne and John Stevenson, Kung Fu Panda is one of his films that manages to completely entertain. The best animated film I have ever seen, even better than a feature film Disney animation or a Pixar ! This animated film by Dreamworks is the best since Shrek ! The humor is sharp and scathing. Animation and drawing are also very high quality with scenes fight worthy of a kill bill or large productions from Hong Kong. The rendering of textures and the care given to the decorations are a true tribute to traditional China ⛩.
In Kung Fu Panda 3 Oogway appears to Po in the World of the Dead, he reveals that he chose her because of his ancestry and his deep connection to yin and yang. Po becomes Oogway's official successor, one thing being to return to the world of the living using his newfound power and teaching his friends the power of Chi.
QUOTES FROM THE MOVIE KUNG-FU PANDA YIN YANG
Oogway : You've finally become the panda you were always meant to be.
Po : But ... how did you know I could?
Oogway : The first day we met. I saw the future of kung fu ... ... and the past. I saw the panda that could unite them both. That's why I chose you, Po. Both sides of yin and yang ... and my true successor.
Kai : Who are you ?
Po : I asked myself the same question: am I the son of a panda, the son of a goose, a student, a teacher? It turns out that... I'm all these things. [creates a Dragon avatar with his chi] I'm the Dragon Warrior. You understand?! See the giant dragon? Get ready to feel the thunder! Whoa! It's great!
