Taoist Meditation: The Mao-Shan Tradition of Great Purity (SUNY series in Chinese Philosophy and Culture) by Isabelle Robinet

A study discussing the ancient Mao-shan Taoist tradition of visionary meditation while also helping to clarify the relationship among the early Taoist classics, the Buddhist tradition, and the later Taoist religion. Robinet (Chinese history and civilization, U. of Aix- Marseilles, France) describes the unique visionary cosmology, bodily symbolism, astral journeys, internal alchemy, meditational techniques, and ritual practices of the Mao-shan or Shang-chiing (Great Purity) movement--one of the most important foundational traditions of the Taoist religion. An expanded translation of the original French text of 1979 which includes a new afterword by Robinet as well as up-to- date bibliographies, additional illustrations, and a newly compiled list of textual citations. Paper edition (unseen), $19.95. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
