Master Zhongxian Wu, lifelong Daoist practitioner, lineage holder of four schools of qigong and martial arts, and author of 12 books on Chinese wisdom traditions
In Daoist Meditation, Master Wu Jyh Cherng guides us through the Seven Steps of Obtaining the Dao as taught by Master SiMa ChengZhen (647–735 CE), renowned ancestral master of the Daoist TianTai ShangQing tradition. Master SiMa's pivotal work, ZuoWangLun, is one of the most important Daoist internal alchemy classics ever written. It is our great fortune that Master Wu Jyh Cherng's translation and insightful commentary of this historical work - the one that marked the shift away from external alchemy and towards internal alchemical processes – has brought this practice back to life. Daoist Meditation is an essential addition to the library of any serious student of authentic Daoist internal cultivation practices.

It has been a true pleasure to read this book on the arts of 'sitting and forgetting' and 'emptying the heart'. Though not an easy practice, perseverance and diligence can help a person to enrich every aspect of their life. Any assistance whilst walking this path is always welcome and I am sure that the guidance in Daoist Meditation will help many in their training.
