My question is simply this: What is the difference between heaven and treasures?
“7. Union of Man with Dao
Stage: Eternal present moment realized, the three Heavens & Treasures merge into wuji.
Cauldron: Wuji, the Supeme Unknown.
Unknown. Arises spontaneously when virtue, destiny, and cultivation are complete.”July 1, 2005 at 8:27 am #6170
And when do you expect to release that special breathing practice? I cant wait! 🙂
And one more thing.
“IMMORTAL SELFS 9 TAO ALCHEMY FORMULAS
The Spiritual Core of Master Mantak Chias Teaching”
And Master Chia evidently has 9 formulas. Would you please comment on this difference?July 2, 2005 at 5:08 pm #6172
Question is answered in handouts from Qigong Fundamenals 2 course:
The 3 heavens are different dimensions of Tao in its cycle of flow, primordial to Subtle to Manifest and back.
The three treasures are described differently, depending where you are looking.
Inside the human, they are jing, chi, shen. In the Earth, they are wind, water, land. In the sky, they are sun,moon, stars.

1. Yes, the new DVD is available, not yet posted on web,but can be ordered by phone or email (888 999 0555 firstname.lastname@example.org)
Ocean, Sky, & Great Heart Breathing:
Blissful Breathing Qigong
It will be packaged in with Qigong Fundamenals 3. 1.5 hours.
Links physical with subtle body breathing in sets of three simple breaths.
It takes about 5 minutes to do a cycle of this form.
One cycle erases stress.
Two cycles puts you feeling good and balanced.
Three cycles takes you into Bliss.
2. 9 Formulas seems to be invention of Dennis Huntington, website writer for Mantak, likely with Mantak’s permission. Undoubtedly this rewrite of history is designed to solve the problem of incorporating all the new practices Chia has added in. Its a classic Chinese solution – credit everything new to the ancients to lend it legitimacy. But here a bit awkward, given the published versions of 7 formulas for two decades…..
Reading the site you would think Taoism is a subtopic of Quantum Physics.
Its a total repackaging of Tao into new age speak. I love physics too, but not willing to abandon the elegance of the ancient concepts of Tao for the heartless ideas of mechanical physics.
