The Way of the Golden Elixir: A Historical Overview of Taoist Alchemy

PDF, 60 pp., free download

ABSTRACT: Chinese alchemy has a history of more than two thousand years, recorded from the 2nd century BCE to the present day. Its two main branches, known as Waidan (External Alchemy) and Neidan (Internal Alchemy), share in part their doctrinal foundations but differ from one another in the respective practices.

This volume in the Contemporary Anarchist Studies series focuses on anti-statist critiques in ancient and modern China and demonstrates that China does not have an unchallenged authoritarian political culture.

Picturing the True Form investigates the long-neglected visual culture of Daoism, China’s primary indigenous religion, from the tenth through thirteenth centuries with references to earlier and later times. In this richly illustrated book, Susan Huang provides a comprehensive mapping of Daoist images in various media, including Dunhuang manuscripts, funerary artifacts, paintings, and other charts, illustrations, and talismans preserved in the fifteenth-century Daoist Canon.

Even since the Daoism studies about Qiu Chuji the Immortal of Quanzhen Daoism began, we have been waiting for someone to bring us a panoramic view on the unresolved issues raised by scholars. With this informative and thought-provoking book by Guo Wu[1], the whole life of Qiu Chuji is manifestly seen and some of those questions are finally answered.
