    Quite a Treasure!

    I could feel my Soul jumping for joy when I received the book in the mail. I have been anticipating this for many lifetimes it seems! Master Sha is sharing some very profound teachings. I am reading the book with great eagerness and appreciation for the detail and depth with which he explains the Tao and the Way of the Tao. Athough I am devouring this book, I will begin again and follow the practices. I am sure I will read it forever! I have already benefitted from several healing practices, especially building our "foundational energy" and balancing the Yin and Yang energies. I highly recommend this timely book for a healthier and more balanced life. Not only can we return to health, we can be rejuvenated for a longer, healthy, HAPPY life! Thank you Master SHa!

    Fulfill the life journey

    At 9:30am this morning, UPS droped a package at my front door, I rushed to open the door to pick the package, because UPS only deliever the overnight package in the early morning. To my surprise, it was the Galley copy of Tao I book.

    I started to read the book, I was deeply moved by the Tao wisdom, knowledge, and practice, especially it came with Chinese Charactors. Because I am a Chinese, Chinese words have more deep connections and meaning for me. I like the words Yuan Man, which means enlightenment. Gong De Yuan Man means Serve unconditionally and gain complete virtue and reach enlightenment. 4 simple words gives us the purpose of our physical life, and meaning of our life.

    To fulfill our life journey is to uplift your soul standing. And there is only one way to uplift the soul standing is to serve others to gain virtue, then have the soul standing in Heaven uplifted.

    The teaching is simple, but it takes many thousands lifetime to reach the final goal of a soul.

    Today, I only had the chance to share one text from the Tao I book. Please read the book, do a lot of practices, the benefits are beyond words.

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

    Tao 1 A Transformative Classic

    Master Zhi Gang Sha's latest book Tao 1 is a text of pure transformation for every reader. In the tradition of ancient spiritual wisdom texts this is a book that will stand the test of time for its purity of teachings and depth of wisdom on every page. Master Sha's advanced spiritual teachings are revealed in every word and phrase. Readers are shown the Tao 1 text which when chanted in its entirety or line by line brings the reader into a deep meditative and life transforming experience. If you want to know the power of this book you have to experience it for yourself. This is not a book to be simply read, this is a book to experience, love and treasure for your whole life.

    TAO 1 FULL OF POWERFUL WISDOM TO TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE

    Tao 1 is filled with incredible treasures and practices to transform every aspect of your life. Tao has always been a mystery and many have found this difficult to explain.I have always been interested in health and longevity, and have had a special fascination with saints that have lived for over a hundred years. Up until now a lot of the special practices and teachings to live 100's of years have only been released to a few disciples. Now we are so blessed that Master Sha has released such incredible wisdom to humanity. The wisdom and practices contained in this book are extremely simple and easy to understand. Master Sha has explained this wisdom with beautiful and profound simplicity. I have experienced incredible power when doing these practices for 3 to 5 minutes.These practices bring so much light, love and joy and are a lot of fun.I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in health and longevity, to anyone on a spiritual journey. Once we transform our own lives we are able to help others. Thank you Tao, thank you Master Sha.

    This Book is Alive and Heals

    ao 1 The Way of All Life is a powerhouse of bright golden light and energy that can be felt in all chakras or sacred soul houses. I placed it over my heart before sleeping, asking for a message that could help me in my life. A very clear dream came about a friend, calling attention to his heart and something that is needed for health improvement. When I awoke, the golden light was filling all the space in the room, my heart chakra or Message Center was very active. I knew the dream was important and accurate. I was so grateful for the message to help a friend. Next, messages came very clearly about other issues in my life. I thought perhaps some guardian angel or holy one was living inside this book to live with me. It is astounding! I wanted to help a client learn about soul power healing techniques to strengthen her lungs. I held the Tao 1 book and opened it to the EXACT page that teaches about a powerful Tao herb for lungs, Message Center (heart) and brain! Only ONE day of having this book and can hardly believe how much service it has already given. Dr./Master Sha has poured a huge chunk of heaven into these pages. Just wait until it is sitting in your hands!

    Fun and Simple Way to Heal!

    After spending a few weeks doing the practices in this book, I must say I can really feel the benefits. I've memorized the Tao Jing (Tao text), and every time I sing the whole thing through, I experience a very noticeable clearing in my lungs. I feel more oxygen coming into my body and my breathing becomes deeper and more satisfying. My mind feels more at peace also. I've tried everything else but nothing really made a noticeable difference. I have overcome any doubts about how simply singing something can have such an instant healing effect on the body. Many will find it too simple to believe. Do not let your mind block you. Give it a try. I know that the more I do the practices in this book, the better I feel--physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I highly value Dr. Sha's teachings.

    The Way to Balance and Health

    The Tao I book is a wonderful addition to the Soul Power Series. It is a beautiful expression of the way of life, and it goes beyond the study of Taoism by providing practical, easy to use techniques and practices that are designed to be integrated into one's daily life for transformation to balance, harmony, health and rejuvenation.

    The cd included in the book is a special addition because Dr. Sha sings many of the chants written in the book. It is a wonderful companion to the book and will help every reader to learn these powerful chants on a whole different level. I recommend getting the book and enjoying the benefits of what it can bring.

    Tao is the way of all life

    The "Tao I" book is absolutely amazing. Dr. and Master Zhi Gang Sha has revealed simpler, more powerful secrets, wisdom, knowledge, and practical techniques than before. With every book Master Sha releases, the wisdom becomes simpler and the practices become more powerful.

    This Tao I book is not about the "Tao Te Ching", by Lao Tze. This book includes ancient wisdom and new Tao wisdom given directly to Master Sha. Master Sha releases a new 75 line Tao text, which will become a classic for the ages. To give you a preview, one line of this text is simply and powerfully:

    "Tao Tao Tao"

    Two one-sentence secrets that are a part of this section are:

    "What you chant or sing is what you become."
    "To chant 'Tao Tao Tao' is to reach Tao."

    You may be thinking that this is too simple or too hard to believe. Great! The simplest wisdom and practice are the most powerful. As Master Sha teaches in the book, "Da Tao zhi jian," which means, "The Big Way is extremely simple." Many human beings like to make things very complicated. Why make it harder and more complicated than it needs to be?

    Master Sha outlines profound, sacred, and new Divine and Tao wisdom. He gives practical techniques for healing, preventing sickness, rejuvenation, longevity, enlightenment, immortality, and offering service. He shows you the way to reach Tao. It may take a lot of work, or even lifetimes. It is possible. Anything is possible.

    Journey into the Tao with Master Sha. Read the book. Apply the wisdom and practices to every aspect of your life.

    (Note: I received an advanced copy of Tao I before the official release.)

    A Must Have for Every Family!

    Tao I is a must have book for any family! It is not just an ordinary book. You get both an ancient text simplified and a divine healing mantra or chant to directly apply Tao wisdom to your health, relationship and financial concerns. My five year old can't put this book down because he sees and feels the Tao light, love and power imbued in every word! He grabs this book often and asks me to chant the Tao Jing with him! This rejuvenation chant alone makes this book priceless and you will not find it in any other Tao text. The included CD will help you learn it or you can just listen while it transforms and enlightens your soul. The Tao has been studied by the greatest dedicated and disciplined Masters yet very few in history have actually deciphered its true essence and melded with the Tao! Dr.& Master Sha, demystifies the Tao, presenting the essence of the ancient Tao wisdom in simple easy to understand language (FINALLY) and introduces new divine wisdom only available in this series of Tao texts! The Divine Tao Jing chant included in this text, contains the sound frequency to transform all that needs transformation within you. We FINALLY have a real opportunity to meld with the Tao! Not only has Master Sha studied with Tao masters from a very young age, he is himself a triple Tao lineage holder and the 373rd lineage holder of Peng Zu, teacher of Lao Tzu the father of Taoism and author of the Tao Te Ching. Chanting the Divine Tao Jing only included in this text, will heal you, rejuvenate you, enlighten you and help you meld with Tao! What other book can do all this? I cherish my Tao I book and you will too!

    The Tao: I'm homeward bound

    Every day we fill our time with who we are, what we do, why we're here, where we go, how we live. This journalistic approach to life is considered reality to many people on Mother Earth. It's what's been taught each lifetime in the absence of true knowledge. Behind this seething existence is something that keeps us alive, keeps our hearts beating until it's decided that we must continue our journeys elsewhere in a different time and in a different form. We go through this cycle many times, moving through lessons in each lifetime that hopefully teach us more about who we are than we knew previously. All the while the stillness of creation watches as we work our way back to the place where we were born, where unity is the way. This is the Tao - the source. Tao I: The Way of All Life is the sixth book of the Soul Power Series received by Dr. and Master Zhi Gang Sha. It introduces you to a new understanding of Tao, and teaches you the first steps to reaching Tao.

    My experience of this book is not like any other I've read. Sometimes we like to curl up with a good book and experience the comfort the book's content brings, and that is a very nice feeling. This book, however, gave me something much more comforting. It brought me home. How much more comfort do we ever need than to feel that we have arrived home? A mother's love is a distant second to the home I experienced reading Tao I. I opened the book and was swept into a place of knowing that I had forgotten perhaps eons ago. The sense was that I had once left the fold to find myself, and hundreds, maybe thousands of lifetimes later I was returning to tell my stories and to be received in the one true home I ever had. The Tao is this home, it is fulfillment. It is where we started, and it is where we will ultimately return.

    Master Sha's insights and incredible wisdom in this book show us that learning to find our way back home is indeed priceless. These are teachings that require an openness, an attentiveness, and a willingness to move forward, away from the limiting voices that tell us otherwise, so we may once again know who we truly are and where we truly belong. I recommend this book to everyone who wants to go forth to get back home.

    Amazing Grace

    This book teaches you a better way to "do your life." You become empowered by the experiences of how chanting upon rising, chanting before & after meals, chanting before bed, and chanting at other times of the day/evening can benefit your life. As I tried and experienced each of the different chants (3-5 words each), I noticed a distinct difference in my body. Especially when I ate a little too much at a meal; the chanting after meals one works really well! Experience is the true teacher...check it out and experience the amazing grace of this book and the Tao I practices.

    Priceless Gem!

    "Tao I: The Way of All Life" is a very unique and sacred text. The Tao I teaching has many layers of wisdom. Each line of the 75 lines of the Tao Jing text is a powerful mantra as a standalone, or in combination with other lines. The entire Tao Jing is an experience of beauty. The companion CD in the book is a valuable tool in learning the text and also experiencing the frequency of each aspect of the Tao Jing or other Divine mantras and soul songs included on it. Meditating to the Tao Jing is a powerful experience. I have experienced deep peace, stillness, and emptiness that is beyond anything I have had before. The practices in this book are profoundly simple and effective. I have read all of Dr. Sha's books and I can say that this book, in particular, is very special. This level of the teachings of the Tao have never been shared in this way before, and certainly not been made available to the public. This is a rare and timely teaching for everyone! A priceless gem!

    the true price

    If there were a way to ascribe a true price to a purchase there would be no way to do that for this book. It is a treasure: the secrets of the universe, of creation, of the eternal Tao are shared within. It is priceless! The practices, downloads (gifts,) wisdom, knowledge and power "Tao 1: the Way of all Life" contains are beyond belief: it is as if a lovely gift were gift wrapped, most generouly added to, all gift wrapped again... and this process continue indefinitely. Profound yet simple, sublime yet practical, inspiring, uplifting, beautiful, heart felt, soul driven, wise beyond measure: this book- and generous audio CD of practices and chants- are food for the soul, heart, mind and body. Thank you thank you, thank you!!!
