  1. Zhen 眞 / 真

    Zhen (眞 / 真) is one of the most important word in the Daoist tradition. It appears for example in: zhenren Quanzhen xiuzhen (i.e. Xiuzhen Tu diagram, Liu Yiming' s work: Xiuzhen houbian), Chuzhen (The title of the second chapter of Huainanzi) What is the best English translation for this word in a Daoist context? (noun:) Perfection, Reality, Truth, (adj:) True, Authentic, Genuine? What does "zhen" mean in the Daoist tradition? Is this a different term for Dao? Why exactly this one?
