    Qigong:the secret of youth

    It tells you how to become immortal. Read this book and it teaches superhuman strength and even immortality if comprehended correctly and understood to the very most of your abilities. Follow all instructions carefully. Once you move your whole body in stillness which is realy hard you will be stronger than you've ever imagined possible.but I think the xi sui jing scripture marrow brain washing is not complete in this book.But the muscle tendon change scripture is complete. you should read "The root of chinese qigong" before you read Qigong: the secret of youth.

    Profound Translation of Rare Ancient Manuscripts

    Anyone desiring to understand Qi, whether for Feng Shui, Marital Arts, or any other reason, must understand the internal human Qi, and the best avenue to this understanding is through Qigong. This profound book is definitely recommended reading for a multitude of reasons, including its great contribution to the understanding and cultivation of Qi utilizing obscure and elusive techniques developed in antiquity through enlightenment. Da Mo, also known as Bodhidarma, was an Indian of the Mahayana Buddhist Sect. He was considered a Bodhisativa who greatly affected the Chinese Shaolin Sect. His theories incorporated that the physical body is important and must be clean and strong (both externally and internally) in order to attain enlightenment. Two rare ancient texts are attributed to him, both of which have been comprehensively researched and eloquently translated by Dr. Jwing-Ming Yang and offered with historical data and commentary. This second volume is an excellent sequel to the author's prerequisite book, The Root of Chinese Qigong : Secrets for Health, Longevity & Enlightenment. The Yi Jin Jing is the Muscle Changing Text and instructs techniques for physical health and physical strength. The Xi Sui Jing is the Marrow & Brain Cleansing Text and instructs techniques for internal cleansing and strength of the physical body via the internal organs including the blood and immune system. It further describes ancient practices designed as methods for channelling what can be termed sexual energy to energize the brain and gain enlightenment. These two texts may initially appear more applicable to the channeling of male sexual energy as they were written in an ancient society predominated by male monks. However, these texts afford a great contribution to the understanding and cultivation of Qi within the framework of 'Being' and the information is pertinent to both men and women. Buy this book, it is essential reading for anyone interested in defined techniques for longevity and enlightenment.
