Description

The Tao Te Ching of Lao Tzu states that, "the epitome of virtue is to acquire immortality (Ma Wang Tui Excavation, Version A, Chapter 42.)" A large part of the 200,000-plus pages of the ancient (500 BC to 1400 AD) Chinese Taoist Canon, the Tao Tsang, deals with life prolonging breathing methods, the so called "Embryonic" or "Primordial Breathing" techniques. The reader will find fascinating, detailed, objective instructions, written centuries and centuries ago, from personal experience, on how breathing is to be trained and refined, on the six different types of exhalations, that ancient Chinese believed, could cure different ailments and on the secret Taoist calisthenics or physical exercises that might prolong life.
