Taoist Master Yun Xiang Tseng on Taoism: Returning to your true nature

I discovered Daoism in 1991 and have been a faithful Daoist ever since, practicing everything from Feng Shui to Chinese Astrology to Qigong, and writing many “Illuminating The Dao” columns http://yang-sheng.com/?cat=114 on the Dao De Jing as well as reviewing books on Daoism for the Yang Sheng Magazine.

In The Way, all the symbols and cycles intertwine so poetically in their cosmic dance. What I love most about the Dao are the teachings of non-duality (“not two” as they say), balance and harmony, and the nature and energy of cycles. Not only within the container of the teachings, but with other traditions as well, teachings such as “the purpose of life is to be happy,” and “to know the Truth, go inward,” and even the teachings on forgiveness and compassion and non-attachment remind one of A Course In Miracles, Jiddu Krishnamurti, and Buddha.


Taoist Master, Yun Xiang Tseng, a child prodigy from the ancient mountains of Wudang, PRC., speaks on Returning to your true nature and the mysteries of Tao. (The Wu Dang Mountains have a very long and prestigious history of hosting Daoist spiritual and retreat centers for approximately 2,000 years and is a popular site for Daoist pilgrims. Having been on pilgrimage in India, I should go to China some day, too!)


From the Master’s website (www.wudangtao.com) : Master Chen

“Master Yun Xiang Tseng, known as “Chen,” is a Wu Dang Daoist priest and healer. He comes from a direct line of Wu Dang Daoist teachers, a lineage that is over 700 years old and completely unbroken.

“At a young age he was chosen to study on Wu Dang Mountain with the Wu Dang master Li Cheng Yu. After intensive study with Master Li, she sent Master Chen to the United States to share this ancient wisdom and healing art. (As he mentions in one of the videos, he’s been in the US for more than 20 years.)

“Master Chen is known for his profound knowledge of the Wu Dang tradition and his ability to engage his students with depth and humor. Thousands of students from around the world have been inspired to seek ‘the master within’ with Master Chen.”
