For many centuries, Meditation and Relaxation of various forms have been used by the Ancient Chinese, Hindus, Arabs, Jews and Christians as a means of im- proving the human mind and body. In China, the Taoists called it “Chi Kung” or “Cultivation of Energies” an “Esoteric Practice”. Perhaps it is more than a coincidence that Kundalini Yoga is somewhat similar to the Taoist “Chi Kung.” In Europe and America, many Christians, both Catholics and Protestants have practiced meditation for spiritual and religious reasons.
In Mainland China and in Taiwan, the Art of Meditation of various types has become very popular and is even attracting the attention of many Euro- peans and Americans. With the surprisingly rapid improvement of means of communication, the peoples of the world have grown closer. Thus, in recent times, Western scientists, physicians and clinical researchers have acknow ledged the bene cial effects of meditation and relaxation. For example, Mr. James May, a non-Chinese, wrote his personal testimony in 1978 describing how he had learned “Chi Kung” (Chinese Meditation by Preserving and Improving En- ergies). He began to learn Taoist Meditation several years ago and in 1976 he wrote to Mr. Liam Wang from Taiwan, reporting on his improved health and expressing his gratitude, for having taught him the art. Wang has published a book on Taoism, as it turns out, in which he cites the case of one of his former students, Mr. James May. Master Mantak Chia is an expert in the Esoteric Art of Taoist Meditation, who can help you develop and bring into harmony your various bodily energy systems. Indeed, he is one of the few living heirs of this secret Taoist Meditation practice.
