The first English translation of an 9th century Daoist text on internal alchemy and meditation practice

About the Author

Richard Bertschinger has published several translations of ancient Chinese texts and is a practising acupuncturist and teacher of the healing arts. He studied for ten years under the Taoist sage and Master Gia-fu Feng.


In ancient Chinese culture, the oral traditions and old practices of the Immortals played a major part - especially in the Taoist Dao Zang. Modern research into the Classics does not attach much importance to the study of these texts... Richard has made a truly precious contribution. -- Professor Dr Bo-Ying Ma MD, MA, PhD, Chairman of Federation of Traditional Chinese Medicine (UK)
The teachings of this book are a true treasure trove for the Daoist practitioner. -- From the Foreword by Master Zhongxian Wu, lifelong Daoist practitioner and author of 12 books (5 in Chinese) on Chinese wisdom traditions.
