PRACTICAL TAOISM, Cleary, Thomas
1 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.

AWAKENING TO THE TAO, I-Ming, Lui
2 I-Ming, Lui AWAKENING TO THE TAO
Shambhala 1988 087773447X / 9780877734475 Paperback Near Fine 
In excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlig hting. The spine remains undamaged. The Tao is the Way, the Way behind all ways, the principle underlying all principles, the fact underlying all facts. Taoism, in its broadest sense, is the search for truth and reality. In a narrower sense, it is the original knowledge tradition of China, yet Taoism has already in the last couple of centuries extended its influence to many different fields of endeavor in the West. In English today we have books on Taoism and investment, Taoism and health, Taoism and sex, Taoism and war, Taoism, and science, Taoism and art, Taoism and life. This book, Awakening to the Tao, is none of these but includes something of all of them, and more--over one hundred methods of attaining reality as a fully conscious human being. According to the masters of ancient times, when you awaken to that unique Way at the crossroads of all ways, you then hold the key to all ways, and can succeed in any of the ways you choose to practice.

SEVEN TAOIST MASTERS: A FOLK NOVEL OF CHINA, Wong, Eva
3 Wong, Eva SEVEN TAOIST MASTERS: A FOLK NOVEL OF CHINA
Shambhala 2004 1590301765 / 9781590301760 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. History and legend are interwoven in this folk novel that both entertains and instructs. Written by an unknown author, Seven Taoist Masters is the story of six men and one woman who overcome tremendous hardships on the journey to self-mastery. These characters and their teacher, Wang Ch'ung-yang, are all historical figures who lived in the Southern Sung (1127?1279) and Yuan (1271?1368) dynasties. Wang is regarded as the greatest patriarch of the Complete Reality school, a highly purified branch of Taoism having a strong affinity with Zen Buddhism. The novel brings to life the essentials of Taoist philosophy and practice, both through the instructions offered by Wang--on topics such as the cultivation of mind and body, meditation techniques, and overcoming the obstacles to enlightenment--and through the experiences of the characters.
