Written during the Tang dynasty, this unusual tantric guide documents a sexual tantra that is thought to have been practiced by kings for several dynasties, before losing favor to a more ascetic approach to Taoism. According to legend, the author was last seen on the edge of a precipice, clasping the book to his chest, and proclaiming the sincerity of his practice.

This illuminating text, translated in English for the first time, describes the methods of this sexual internal alchemy practice, pursued strictly for the spiritual advancement of the practitioner, and undertaken only once desire and attachment for a consort had been overcome. Cloaked in metaphor, the techniques and attendant virtues of the practice are presented in poetry and prose, with explanatory commentaries throughout.

About the Author:

Chang Sen Feng was an active Taoist Master during the Tang dynasty (660-780 AD). He was schooled in the Chai Tzan tradition, which he practiced, expanded, and taught. His personal practice led him to explore techniques that favored the use of sexual energy as a source for internal alchemy. This text, his record of the practice, disappeared for over seven hundred years before it was rediscovered by Jie Yi Tze during the Ming dynasty
