Nei Jing Tu – Full Translation – Overview

The Nei Jing Tu (内經圖), or ‘Mapping One’s Inner Landscape’ is a well-known relatively modern scroll that depicts several essential aspects of Inner Cultivation.

This scroll is like a ‘Cole’s Notes’ of the most important skills, conditions, and the progression of a comprehensive lifelong (mostly Daoist) meditation practice.

The video on this page is an overview of the contents and a rough translation of the larger paragraphs. Each section is discussed in enough detail to demonstrate the value and long-term guidance included in the chart.

In the next series, I will translate the entire document character for character – or word for word.

This process takes about seven hours because the terminology contains contextual meaning and some terms that have encoded Daoist meaning about in-depth Apophatic Realization code words

I am interested in learning more about becoming a Qi Gong Teacher and/or a Medical Qi Gong Therapist and would like to receive your MONTHLY newsletter.
