内容简介: Declarations of the Perfected is the first complete, annotated translation of the Zhen'gao, Tao Honging'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 interourse, with Perfected partners. The book is the first to examine in depth the full process of this practice--from preliminary courtship to the act of union itself, the gestation of the Perfected embryo in the body of the adept, and finally the adept's rebirth.
