Overview

In this underground classic, five female masters of the dual cultivation in Old China lead a Taoist monk on a breathtaking journey to spiritual and erotic awakening.

White Tiger, Green Dragon follows the spiritual, erotic and psychic evolution of Tu Ming, a Taoist monk in Old China. Tu is apprenticed in sequence to five female adepts in the discipline known as the "dual cultivation," a kind of Tantric yoga in which sexual techniques replicate states of spiritual progress. This practice culminates in the creation of a spiritual embryo at the moment of enlightenment. The five masters who instruct Tu run the gamut of Chinese folklore characters, including the gentle pillow girl, Mei Cha, the doughty herb gatherer, Su Ba, and Lekshe Tsogyel, an acrobatic aristocrat from Tibet. Tu advances not only in his practice, but also in his understanding of life and love as he falls under the spell of five unforgettable women unequaled in religious literature. In the exciting conclusion, he experiences an epiphany that redefines what it means to attain the highest knowledge.

    a beautiful book!

    This story reminds me of the best historical novels, and in some ways of MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA, gently weaving fact and fiction. The author's knowledge of life in old China and Taoist philosophy is impressive, and her prose is artful. Her characters are so beautifully drawn! I loved the actual and spiritual journey of the main character, the women he meets along the way, and the delightful depictions of his adventures. A thoroughly enjoyable and poetic book.
