  4. Methods to turn sleep into cultivation?

    There is actually a part translation of the Da Cheng Jie Yao 大成捷要 on a webpage: http://fiveimmortals.com/the-essentials-of-the-shortcut-to-the-great-achievement/ I have not read it all, but I believe it contains chapters on sleep cultivation, and dietary requirements etc. It is certainly an interesting read containing explanations from a Daoist renunciant that are not in the original text.
  5. notes from a recent Daoism seminar

    There is actually a part translation of 'Da Cheng Jie Yao' , the essentials of the shortcut to the great achievement' that I came across through research on this webpage: http://fiveimmortals.com/the-essentials-of-the-shortcut-to-the-great-achievement/ By the looks of it it seems to contain many valuable explanations form a Daoist priest that are not part of the original text
  6. book search

    Hi guys, I came across this fascinating guy called Li Ching-Yueh who supposedly lived for more than 200 yars. Now I am looking for the book written by general yang about him. This is the title: Sen, Yang. A Factual Account of the 250 Year-Old Good-Luck Man. Taipei, Taiwan: Chinese and Foreign Literature Storehouse. A lot of people refer to the title online without mentioning the specific content or availability of this book. Has anyone ever gotten their hands on it or could lead me in my quest to pinpointing it. Thanks in advance
