Archive | Secret of the Golden Flower

This work has been popularized as The Secret of the Golden Flower, and is one of Daoism’s main meditation and internal alchemy texts. The text is attributed to Lu Dongbin (one of the Eight Immortals) who lived during the Tang dynasty (618-907 C.E.). This text, however, was more likely composed by Wang Chongyang (王重陽, 1113-1170 C.E.), the founder of the Complete Reality Sect (全 真 派, Quan Zhen Pai). Postings from this work provide both the original Chinese text and the English translation. In the near future, Stuart Olson will be releasing this work with a detailed commentary.
