The Secret of the Golden Flower is the classic guide in Taoist esoteric tradition and meditation that Jung made famous. This Chinese classic text covers alchemy, history of religions, breathing and meditation techniques and makes the reader reflect that all esoteric traditions have the same inner meaning. Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism were considered path to the same goal. The described meditation technique is a straightforward, silent method: “zen with details.” A more recent translation by Thomas Cleary, directly from Chinese, offers this precious text a new modern interpretation.
