Declarations of the Perfected 《真誥》全譯本

Part One: Setting Scripts and Images into Motion

作者 Author:
Thomas E. Smith

出版年 Publication Year:
April, 2013

出版社 Publisher:
Three Pines Press

內容簡介 Abstract:
Declarations of the Perfected is the first complete, annotated translation of the Zhen’gao, Tao Hongjing’s (456-536) masterful compilation of the Shangqing or Higher Clarity revelations, setting the stage for the heyday of medieval Daoism.

This volume presents its first part (fasc. 1-4), centering around the practice of achieving “spiritual union,” a spiritual analogue to sexual intercourse, with Perfected partners. The book is the first to examine in depth the full process of this practice—from preliminary courtship to the mechanics of the act of spiritual union, the gestation of the Perfected embryo in the body of the adept, and finally the adept’s rebirth.
