Exploring Advanced Meanings of the Pure Yang Mudra
I started writing this article in 2002, shortly after I first moved to the United States from China. After detailed review I realized the article discussed topics that I considered to be too advanced for the general public, so I decided to submit an abbreviated version, entitled “Seeking the Roots of Classical Qigong – Exploring the Original Meaning of the Pure Yang Mudra” for publication. I kept the full article in my computer files and have not felt that it was ready for publication until now.
There are two reasons I feel that it is now time to share my old writing with Qigong friends: 1) I have seen a great development of Qigong practice in the western world over the past 15 years; 2) The publication of my book, Chinese Shamanic Cosmic Orbit Qigong – Esoteric Talismans, Mantras and Mudras in Healing and Inner Cultivation (Singing Dragon: London, 2011) delivered the Pure Yang Mudra practice to a broad range of readers and subsequently, the public demand for learning the advanced meanings of the Pure Yang Mudra has increased dramatically.
