Chu Tai Yin 1

The title Chu Tai Yin comes from the last line of the Chu Ci poem Yuan You.

I entered the region of the Great Source.

"Into the neighborhood of the Great Source" is the title of Section 8 of the qin melody Yuan You. Dwell at the Source is thus obviously a prelude to Yuan You, and the explanation for both pieces is included with Yuan You.

The title Chu Tai Yin appears only in Xilutang Qintong;2 there are no available recordings.
