On a closing note of inspiration, we’re pleased to share the culmination of the teachings of the Immortal Zhang Sanfeng.
ZHANG’S FIVE PRACTICES OF CULTIVATION
- Perform sword movements by moonlight to enliven the spirit. (Zeng Shen)
- Practice Tai Chi in the dark of the night, to increase essence. (Yi Jing)
- Climb a mountain on a windy night as it broadens Chi. (Zhang Chi)
- Study and read the scriptures on rainy nights, it illuminates mind. (Ming Hsing)
- Sit in meditation at midnight—it brings clarity of mind. (Jiang Hsing)
These statements on the essentials for practice come from the 13th Century, credited as the founder of Tai Chi, Zhang Sanfeng lived a remarkable one hundred and seventy years.
It is surely great that we have incorporated all of these incredibly interesting and functional exercises into our contemporary lifestyles.
We are fortunate to have access to the method, and respect the spirit of the sages that guide us in the simple practice of meditation, to attain tranquility in life.
