Re Taoist alchemy, i swear they replaced all the mercury and lead type description with vitality, spirit etc etc, at least in the PDF i have.
The book generally feels quite clear to me apart from a few points, but still it's not a system i would practice without a teacher.


Taoist Yoga by C. Luk is available on PDF? That would help me tremendously if it's not picture scans and it is actual text. I could create a word document and go through and batch replace terms that sound like gibberish to me with what they actually mean and reread it till I understood it and condensed it.

It doesn't flow well at all for me. It was like these guys did the English translation:

If you guys aren't going to review it anytime soon could someone post at least the table of contents please? :)
I hate my enemies and cling to my friends.
Groping in dark delusion as to what to accept and reject,
When practicing the Dharma, I fall prey to dullness and sleep.
When involved in non-Dharma, my senses are clear and sharp.
Guru think of me, regard me with compassion.
Bless me that I destroy my enemy - disturbing emotions.

No but you could have given a brief description, like shui gong is sleeping qigong etc... Also Mantis' review prompted me to cancel the order, will wait to see more reviews first.

edit: And besides, Ish kindly offerred to do that by himself, otherwise I might not have even asked.

Nu Dan xin fa = Female golden pill guideline. So it's the womans practice after they have foundation in yin xian fa, zhi neng gong, san xian gong etc.

Nei shi fa = Method of inner vision

Zi shi gang = "zi shi" is the time 11pm - 1am there are some methods for gathering yang qi. It is used after there is strong foundation in the other arts.

Guan Shi Mo Xiang and ting fu yi mu = Visualizing our master and memorizing his image. Listening to and remembering our parents. May eliminate karma and train the ling (soul) to communicate with others.

16 is related to a bagua sphere
17 and 18 are interesting methods to communicate with the universe/stars,
Developing xing and ling.



Although the book isnt "perfect" (you cant expect a perfect training manual on this kind of art through a book - imo) i would still strongly recommend. It contains a load of good info, and gives some insight into this school.
I think mantis said it's not like a step by step manual - fair enough but there definitely is some structure, lots of the practices are supplemental i think, i assume if you are taught in person certain practices may be more essential to you depending on your developement.
