Names Associated with the Bottom of the Ch’in


All of the body has the same form as the top.  The (bottom) shape is like an overturned tile.  Under the forehead (e ), one finds the crop (su ).  Under the dew receptor (ch’eng-lu 承露) and the bridge (lin-yueh 臨岳) area, we have the peg-pool (chen-ch’ih 軫池).  On it, there are seven holes, called string eyelets (hsuan-yen 絃眼), that come straight down from the dew receptor.  Down from the shoulders (chien ) in the center of the bottom, there is a long square hole, called the dragon-pool (lung-ch'ih 龍池). It is in the area of hui four to seven.   In the middle of the waist (yao ) there are two small square holes.  These holes bordered by hui nine and ten are where the wild geese feet (yen-tzu 雁足) are placed.  In the center of the back, and the front of the tail, we have an additional long square hole, which is called the phoenix pond (feng-chao 鳳沼).  It is found in the area of hui ten to thirteen.  At the extreme end, (the ch’in) has gums (yin ) which are partially recessed.  This is called the gum receptor (yin-t'o 齦託).
