''The Dragon Fixes the Pearl''
In the Taoist tradition, the elixir Chi Kung was considered one of the last secrets that a master passes on to his students before his passing. Grand Master Mantak Chia makes this precious knowledge public without restriction and conveys complex practices in his inimitably humorous way in an understandable way.
In summary, one can say that one's own bodily fluids are energised with chi through alchemical actions. One transforms one's own bodily fluids in an as yet unexplored but extremely effective way.
In Chinese medicine, bodily fluids are regarded as a key indicator of vital health. If the fluids are functioning, this speaks for an intact production and a good supply of oxygen and nutrients to the organs, for a vital sexual energy and for an adequate burning of nutrients. Overall, a good supply of fluids to the body provides information about a person's vitality.
The ''Chymical Wedding''
The West also knows comparable traditions.
The ''Chymical Wedding'' as the title of one of the basic writings of the Rosicrucians and as an instrument of the inquiring adepts who possessed the hermetic keys of alchymy, Kabbalah and astrology. In alchemy, the Chymical Wedding is understood as the union of opposites and reveals the gradual path of initiation into the ultimate great mysteries of our existence.In the alchemists' masterpiece, the production of a philosopher's stone with which gold can be made and an immortality elixir obtained, one of the necessary acts is the coagulatio of matter, the coagulation of incompatible substances in a chymic marriage.
White Queen and Red King
In the erotic symbolism of alchemy, this refers to the climax of the Great Work (opus magnum), when the white queen (symbol: moon, silver or mercury) unites with the red king (symbol: sun, sulphur or gold). The union of the polar opposites, however, is not only an external process, but also an allegory of the inner, spiritual process of change of a human being, since the purposeful change of the human being itself was one of the most important goals of alchemy.
The Taoists recognised saliva as one of the sources of life. Western scientists describe saliva as "an extremely complex fluid containing a vast array of substances that have the potential to influence many aspects of our physical lives".
The Golden Elixir, also known as Heavenly Nectar, is the source or water of life. It is a mixture of saliva, hormonal fluids and external essences. From an alchemical point of view, however, it is far more than a mere external material process; rather, through coagulation, spiritual is incorporated into matter, thereby elevating it to a higher level of existence.
Taoists believe that this elixir is a great transformer for higher, spiritual work. The Golden Elixir is said to be able to cure diseases, grant immortality. Some Taoist texts recommend swallowing the saliva up to 1,000 times a day for spiritual work and healing. In the practice presented by Grand Master Mantak Chia, exercises that have only recently been made public have flowery names, such as ''The Dragon Fixes the Pearl'', ''Spinning the Silk and Swinging the Leg'' or ''Harvesting the Golden Earth Medicine''.
