The Secret of the Golden Flower, Chapter 3, Part 8

All holy men have bequeathed this tone another: nothing is possible without contemplation (fang-chao, reflection). When Confucius says: "Perceiving brings one to the goal"; or when the Buddha calls it: "The vision of the heart"; or Lao-tse says: "Inner vision", it is all the same.
Translators of The Secret of the Golden Flower are Richard Wilhelm and Cary F. Baynes. If you missed any posts in this series, please utilize the Golden Flower label below.
