Yin Yang meaning definition: balance, love, life, taoism. It is said that yin and yang work together to create a whole. The yin and yang are in opposition to each other, which is where transformation starts. The word “whole” in the dictionary refers to anything that is constant and complete. The delicate equilibrium of the whole is disrupted when anything is sliced in half (yin/yang). To create new balance with one another, both sides are racing against one another.
