  1. Replenishing Yuanqi

    Thanks for sharing your opinion though it's not the stance from Daoist point of view.. and seems to make Daoism approach devoid of self cultivation.

    http://pages.ucsd.edu/~dkjordan/chin/bashian/bs0Intro.html Btw, I said "the story about him has no practical sense in Alchemy" Meaning the folklore stories in the 8 immortals, which are clearly not factual events. It may be based on real person who existed once in history, but does not mean all tales including his name are factual.... what are you arguing for? Btw it's a bit off topic now. Better to open a new thread about "8 immortals" if you wanted to continue.

    Can you provide source about when these schools were formed? As far as I see it, and not just talking about Daosim.. religion seems to be degradation of Spiritual practices, and losing the original purpose, focused all on ritual and or worship. Thanks for Ge Hong source, I'll check it when I have time.

    Any proof about it? Or just based on paintings from artists imagination?
  5. Ming Stages/Replenishing Yuan Qi/Ming Gong

    Really? Locgical fallacy.. I can write story about Ormus with all beautiful tales and fantasies, but are they factual or just tales... I said the stories of 8 immortals are folklore. Not that Ludongbin and others never existed.

    A few things.. Iron Crutch Li is folklore and the story about him has no practical sense in Alchemy - ie it's a fairytale. 8 immortals stories are just fairytales.. of course they can contain some basic lessons and some essence of Daoism, but it's nothing to go by for talking about Alchemy in a serious scientific way. About Ge Hong, do you have any links to translations of these texts, or any excerpts you can share? About Laozi, they're not photo's by the way, they are paintings, and only the artists interpretation. I've asked about this long ago to Teacher(s) of mine and have been told it's basically because of people's misconceptions and lack of understanding / lack of deep connection to the Tradition. And not just this but it could be a thing of respect to the name "old Master" etc. Also, referring to him as Tai Shang Lao Jun, is connecting to religious Daoism which was formed later and has not much in common with Neidan (Traditional Daoism) as I understand.

    Hi Ormus, see below in bold:

    #1 The signs on this man's face shows nothing similar of what a genuine Master who has achieved any decent level in Daoist cultivation. #2 I am not a WLP member, you're mistaken. #3 I don't have skepticism, I know the persons real name. Here is the name: 普光 (普光老和) (sorry to spoil the fantasy's of it being Liuhuayang )
  9. Ming Stages/Replenishing Yuan Qi/Ming Gong

    It's google images. I'll get a link for you shortly. What about wlp members..?

  12. Ming Stages/Replenishing Yuan Qi/Ming Gong

    Photo's of Liuhuayang, you honestly believe this is photo of Liuhuayang? http://www.dycndg.com/?page_no=43〈=0&show_case=

    It's not my website. I was a previous student of him, yes. But quite sometime ago. Typing then stopped? Not sure what you are talking about

    It's your fate not mine. I'm not here to prove you anything. If you want to study Daoism you will check such sources and gain something useful, grow your knowledge and so on. If not, then it seems you're just interested in useless arguments and internet trolling.. You obviously don't want to learn anything by your tone. Obscure source, right... lol.
