    Sitting in Oblivion: The Heart of Daoist Meditation

    Rated 0 out of 5
    $35.00 $19.95 Add to cart
    Sale! $35.00 $19.95
    • PDF ebook: 249 pages
    • Author: Livia Kohn
    • 2010 edition
    • ISBN 10: 1931483167

    This book is an expansion of Seven Steps to the Dao (1987). It outlines the history and intricacies of zuowang, an essential form of Daoist meditation. It divides into two parts. “Discussion” begins by placing the practice in the larger context of the phenomenology of meditation and Chinese religious history. It then has eight chapters, discussing historical forerunners in pre-Han and Twofold Mystery texts, Tang masters and main works, the theory and practice of Tang Daoist meditation, and its relation to Buddhism and modern science. “Translation” presents eight core texts, some translated here for the first time and all with ample annotation.

    Drawing on decades of Daoist scholarship and meditation experience, this book is the culmination of Kohn’s extensive, path-breaking work. It makes difficult materials accessible and greatly enhances our understanding of the complex methods and conceptualizations involved in attaining Dao.

    The first English translation with commentary of three classic Taoist texts on immortality

    * TranslatesThe Jade Emperor’s Mind Seal Classic, The Immortals,andThe Three Treasures of Immortality

    * Defines the Taoist concept of immortality and examines the lives and practices of Taoists who achieved this state

    * Reveals the steps needed to achieve immortality in our modern society

    Taoist mystics claim that it is possible to achieve immortality: “Within each of us dwells the medicine to cure the affliction of mortality.” Now Western readers can access the wisdom of Taoist masters on the subject of immortality through the first English translations of three classic Taoist treatises:The Jade Emperor’s Mind Seal Classic; The Immortals,from the Pao P’u Tzu by Ko Hung of the Sung Dynasty; andThe Three Treasures of Immortality,from the Dragon Gate Sect.

    The Jade Emperor’s Mind Seal Classicteaches that one can attain immortality through the cultivation of the three treasures of Taoism:ching(sexual and physical energy),qi(breath and vital energy), andshen(spirit and mental energy). Chinese history is sprinkled with accounts of individuals who applied the lessons of the Jade Emperor and lived up to 200 years. Drawing on his extensive knowledge of Taoism, martial arts, and Chinese history and culture, Stuart Alve Olson accompanies his translations with informative commentary that explains the historical context of the texts as well as demonstrates the practical applications of their teachings in contemporary life.

    Rated 0 out of 5

    Sale! $17.60 $9.95
    • PDF eBook: 146 pages, Pub. 2000
    • Author: Eva Wong
    • ISBN 10: 1570627258

    Here is a classic Chinese text on the Taoist arts of longevity and immortality. The text dates from the Five Dynasties (907960 C. E.) and is attributed to Chungli Ch’uan and Lü Tung-pin—two of the most popular figures of Taoism and Chinese culture. This text focuses on Taoist inner alchemy, a theory and method for transforming the mind from within by using practices such as breath control, calisthenics, meditation practices, and sexual alchemy (the method of gathering energy from a sexual partner).

    The teachings address the following topics:

    • The nature of immortality and how it can be attained by realizing the laws of the Tao within us
    • The art of health
    • The art of longevity
    • How to deal with obstacles and recognize spiritual progress
    The Art of Health, Longevity, and Immortality will be of interest to both beginning students of Taoism and scholars. Wong’s introduction includes a concise overview of the evolution of Taoist longevity practices as well as an elucidating section for readers who are unfamiliar with the teachings and practices of Taoist inner alchemy. She also includes a list of helpful hints for reading and understanding each section of the text.
