2 Cleary, Thomas Practical Taoism
Shambhala 1996 1570622000 / 9781570622007 Paperback Very Good 
This extraordinary collection of teachings and commentaries illuminates the many profound mysteries of inner alchemy, one of the most important dimens ions of the Taoist tradition. The science of inner alchemy consists of medi tation practices that enable the individual to have a more intimate, energi zing, and inspiring relationship with life. Although these techniques are d escribed in the sourcebooks of ancient Taoism, they are often couched in cr yptic symbolic language, making it difficult for today's seekers t put thes e teachings into practice. Some classical Taoist writers, however, did adop t a more explicit manner of expression. Practical Taoism is a collection of writings from these more accessible commentators on the traditional alchem ical texts, compiled by a seventh-generation master of the Northern Branch of the Complete Reality School of Taoism known as the Preserver of Truth.

5 Ying-ming, Hung The Unencumbered Spirit: Reflections of a Chinese Sage
Kodansha USA 2010 4770030975 / 9784770030979 Hardcover Near Fine/Near Fine 
We know almost nothing of Hung Ying-ming, except that he lived around the e nd of the Ming dynasty (1368-1644) and that he was extraordinarily well-rea d and cultured. The Unencumbered Spirit is his classic work, a tour de forc e offering wise words distilled through the fundamental teachings of Taoism , Confucianism and Zen Buddhism. Hung's poetic prose embodies the infinite transformations of the world's opposites, what the Chinese called yin and y ang--good and evil, honesty and deception, wisdom and foolishness, heaven a nd hell. Wise, profound, spiritual, humorous, witty, and timeless, The Unencumbered Spirit is, in short, a book about putting greed and competition aside, abou t getting at the true, clear essence of things, free of distractions and en cumbrances. It is a book about living without stuff, whether it be material , psychological, or spiritual. About living with simplicity and awareness. "It has been rare for one person to develop a thorough grasp of Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism, such is their profundity. But there have been a few. Among them, one person's work stands above the rest: namely, Hung Ying-ming's The Unencumbered Spirit. I can recommend this work to anyone interested in the way of the world's greatest sages, whose teachings can help us all to see into and to improve our own lives." Bill Porter (aka Red Pine), from the Foreword
