Book Description

Sep 1988 Arkana
This ancient Chinese manual of spiritual alchemy was brought to the West in translation by missionary and theologian Richard Wilhelm who is assisted in this book by Carl Jung. Averse to the blind aping of oriental ways, Jung suggests that Eastern treasures are best used to enrich our understanding of the work we have to do on ourselves and our culture.

By A Customer
Even if at first the text may seem rather incomprehensible and difficult to digest, with concentrated reading, one unfolds the secrets of the intricate workings of the human subtle body. It opens your eyes to what is really going on under the surface and is an indispensible guide to anyone who is approaching the task of meditation and stilling the mind. It provides many new tips and information on progress along the spiritual path, that are not found elsewhere in modern literature. The reader should not be discouraged by the allegorical style of writing and hidden meanings, which actually make reading this book like an interesting game, whereby one can unravel the truth behind the surface. It is a must for anyone who wishes to discover his true self.

A beautiful book which is a treasure of words from beginning to end. This further enhanced by the added notes of Jung.
