Need help understanding what this means.


Recommended Posts


Its from a Sifu given to his student. I have a picture of it if you wish I'll post it. I was wondering if someone might be able to help me to understand when it means. I know that the last part means 1991, the last character meaning year, but the rest is a bit hard to grasp. All help would be great!

My guess is -

德高安 (De Gao An) - probably a name transliterated from a western name (like the name of the student)

粹人書 - written by 粹人 (probably name of the sifu)

辛未正月- the first month of the lunar calendar of Xinwei year (year of the sheep/goat; 1991 is a Xinwei year)

一九九一年 - 1991
