Diagram of Cultivating Perfection (Xiuzhen Tu)

Recommended Posts

I posted more than 30 PDF files that contain bilingual texts of Taoist classics and texts, here (latest DL links at post #56):

Right now I'm translating Xiuzhen Tu (XZT). (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xiushen)

 

I'll post it for free download when it's complete. Although it's one of the two most famous Taoist diagrams, it's not translated into English. (The other famous Taoist diagram is Neijing Tu; see the thread above, post# 60.)

 

I'll post the DL link for the PDF file of the translation (with bilingual text, annotations, etc.) appr. 40 days later (the same thread above).

 

But the only XZT picture I have is an online pic, found in many sites, like this one,

and it's low-resolution. I'll magnify parts of the diagram, so I need a high-res (300 dpi) scan of the diagram. If you have a high quality XZT in a book, etc., please scan it and send me so that I can create a better PDF for all fellow Tao bums and others.

 

Your contribution will be awarded.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

P.S. Please save the picture file as a TIFF file.
