Editorial Reviews

Review

"Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming has given us a very lucid presentation of the ancient practices of Chinese Medicine. It is a most worthwhile contribution to the bridging of Eastern and Western medical traditions." (Herbert Benson, M.D. Harvard Medical School, author of The Relaxation Response and Your Maximum Mind)

"This profound book is definitely recommended reading for a multitude of reasons, including it's great contribution to the understanding and cultivation of Qi utilizing obscure and elusive techniques developed in antiquity through enlightenment." (Bill Clement, Feng Shui Information Resource Feng Shui Information Resources)

Format: Paperback
The previous comments on this book are basically accurate. The reader is correct that it does not go into detail regarding the small circulation, but that's cause it wasn't meant to. Dr.Yang mentioned in the beginning that you should have already read and accomplished some part of the Yi Gin Ching before going on to this volume. Also he mentions that you should have READ and UNDERSTOOD what was written in his previous books, "The Root of Chinese Chi-Gung" and "Chi-Gung, Health and the Martial Arts". The Health and the Martial Arts book is where the Small and Grand circulation is mentioned and taught in much greater detail.

I have been into REAL Gung-FU, Wu-Su for twenty-seven serious years now and for fifteen years when I first wrote this review. I know that what Dr.Yang is talking about is correct because I was taught, or heard my instructors talking about the same things as Dr.Yang for years before I read his books. I was taught by a student of a Gung-Fu Master that grew up in one of the last Shaolin Temples that was destroyed in 1927. He is now over one hundred years old and looks like he's about sixty, with a strong solid physique, so you can be sure that he knows that Marrow washing Chi-gung as well.

Dr. Yang states repeatedly in his books that you must make sure that you read and understand all the theory and comprehend it BEFORE you go on to the next level of material. Train smart and slow, NOT stupid and fast as he repeatedly states in his books. Just cause you may not understand something, don't assume that it's the authors fault. I'm not saying that it's all perfect, some things could be a little clearer. But being into physics myself since I was about 6 years old, and that fact that Dr.

Format: Paperback
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.

31 of 32 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on December 17, 1998
Format: Paperback
I have mixed feelings on this book.Firstly,It is my understanding that it was written as a kind of compilation of ancient knowledge,training keys and'secrets'in order to understand the concept of the muscle/tendon changing,brain/bone marrow washing classics.Do not approach this book as a 'how to'.Especially frustrating was the lack of specifics governing the small circulation training which is repeatedly stressed as the premier means to accomplish the higher level chigung practices.In the area of commentary,Dr.Yang provides very intersting transliterations and explantions of chinese writing and idealogy.The pictures remain useful throughout the book and the grand circulation exerices are good and useful and the sexual hormone chigung is extremely informative and usable it would be a good idea for the prospective reader to cross train or learn of other systems before tackling the Yi Gin Ching namely because it is conceptually different than the average chigung book.I applaud Dr.Yang for researching so much and praise his commentary .It is a good and usefulbookprovided you already have a working level of chigung knowledge and practice under your belt

35 of 37 people found the following review helpful By Ren Qi-zhen on March 28, 2002
Format: Hardcover
Yang uses Buddhist and Taoist documents, reproduced and translated section by section, to explain the esoteric training methods Yi Jin Jing and Xi Sui Jing. The first method generate qi to strengthen muscles and tendons, the second teaches Huan Jing or how to return vital energy through the spine to energize the brain. Evidently very baffled by certain aspects of these exercises, Yang sometimes has to conjecture. His translation is uncertain, yet this description includes valuable source material withheld in the popular books by Mantak Chia. This is an early work of a prolific writer who could really use an editor, and readers may find the non-standard Cantonese transliterations rather puzzling.
