Jade Emperor's Mind Seal Classic by Stuart Alve Olson
Book DescriptionTaoist mystics claim that it is possible to achieve immortality: "Within each of us dwells the medicine to cure the affliction of mortality." Now Western readers can access the wisdom of Taoist masters on the subject of immortality through the first English translations of three classic Taoist treatises: The Jade Emperor's Mind Seal Classic; The Immortals, from the Pao P'u Tzu by Ko Hung of the Sung Dynasty; and The Three Treasures of Immortality, from the Dragon Gate Sect. THE JADE EMPEROR'S MIND SEAL CLASSIC teaches that one can attain immortality through the cultivation of the three treasures of Taoism: ching (sexual and physical energy), qi (breath and vital energy), and shen (spirit and mental energy). Chinese history is sprinkled with accounts of individuals who applied the lessons of the Jade Emperor and lived up to 200 years. Drawing on his extensive knowledge of Taoism, martial arts, and Chinese history and culture, Stuart Alve Olson accompanies his translations with informative commentary that explains the historical context of the texts as well as demonstrates the practical applications of their teachings in contemporary life.
