Baopuzi(Master Embracing Simplicity)

Post  Admin on Mon Oct 10, 2011 11:36 pm

The Daoist text "Baopuzi "(The Master Embracing Simplicity) was written by Ge Hong 葛洪, an early 4th century Daoist master. He lived in a time when the scholars were frustrated in their pursuit of political position and embraced the role of literary recluse. Showing no interest in popular religious movements, the writings of Ge Hong nevertheless played an important role for Daoist thinking in southern China during the time of division.

The Baopuzi is divided into the Inner Chapters (Neipian 內篇) and the Outer Chapters (Waipian 外篇). The Outer Chapters with their dialectical form are an extended polemical defense of the legist-oriented conservative political, social and religious scholarship of Later Han Dynasty which still prevailed in south China. The much more important Inner Chapters of this work contain Ge Hong's own researches into the art of transcendence and immortality, topics like alchemy (jindan 金丹, pills), health preserving (yangsheng 養生), meditation and breathing techniques (xingqi 行氣), exorcism, sexual practices (fangzhongshu 房中術), herbalism (fuyao 服藥) and talismanic charms (shenfu 神符). Because of his preeminent position for southern Daoism, many works are falsely attributed to Ge Hong.
