Immortal Sisters presents life stories and teachings of distinguished female Taoist adepts who lived from the third up to the twelfth century.

Through poems, stories, teachings and commentaries, Immortal Sisters sheds light on the spiritual methods taught and practiced by these women.

The book is about Taoist Alchemy and it uses the symbolism from the Taoist Alchemy. As such, it would appeal the most to female practitioners of Taoist Alchemy.

The poems themselves contain instructions for practice, but even with the commentaries included, but again, they will make most sense only to the practitioner of Taoist Alchemy.

An ancient guide for woman taoist alchemy 25 mars 1999
Par Dantao - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Cleary again has done an incredible job of translating from the writing of a modern taoist master Cheng Yinling who was the head of the China Taoist Association. Master Cheng's wrote the comentary based on the ancinet text of several woman taoist masters who gave very detail instruction in the image rich langauge of taoist oral tradition. Cleary is able to tease out some of the more unique terminology like the spirit water as salivia. Having read the original Chinese text, I have to say that Cleary did a great translation job once again.

Rarer than one bird singing, more beautiful than its song 11 décembre 2002
Par Lisbeth West - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The poetry of Sappho has been read as THE example of women from ancient times, but this text shows us that the rarest of the jewels come from the Eastern civilization. These works are like a Chinese brush painter's stroke; from the heart of the spirit to the characters on the page. Each stroke reads as if it is found in a great brushpainter's' tradition of "having the bamboo completed in your chest" -- or seeing with one's inner eye and then simply writing what one sees.

What an exceptional find for students of daoism who are interested in learning the true beauty and wonderful myth of the Taoist Immortals and their jouneys! The Immortals include women but seldom do we get the chance to learn of them -- or in this case -- read their actual "bamboos of the chest."

Yes, Cleary follows his tradition of translating rare and visionary material, but since I have yet to master the language, I cannot say how true his translations are to the original words. This poetry is as simple as a final brushstroke in the holy spot on a sheet of rice paper. But these interpretations are filtered by what men perceive in these women's writing, and how their lives shape this text.

I wait to hear the translations from wonderful contemporary daoist women like we find in the mastery of Eva Wong. Clearly, the author notes that few works were written for both women and men. These ancient women were clear that much of the poetry was written for women only.

Do not hesitate to purchase a copy of this amazing gift to the world of beauty. Each page is fresh with new readings and is a staple of my bedside library. The works shape meaning into paths I follow and into the nature I seek as I live in solitude on the side of a mountain.

In the busy city, in a quick moment on that bus in rush hour, or during a break in your day of dealing with "reality" -- this amazing little text will spill over to give you the visions of the immortals and the sanctity of the women who penned each verse.

Nothing can be better for your quest of "having the bamboo completed in your chest."

Interesting practices, readable translation 7 janvier 2014
Par wiredweird - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As always, Cleary has produced a very readable English form of these Chinese classics. These selections show the importance of women in Taoist practice - a notable contrast to their position in the Confucian hierarchy. Although these parts of Taoism treat men and women as equals, the text also emphasizes their differing roles and practices, a seeming contradiction that I would like to understand better.

Although I came to this book predisposed to like it, I came away less informed than I hoped. That does not seem to be a problem in Cleary's translation, but central to the esoteric subjects of the originals. Given the arcane practices themselves, plus some tradition of deliberately obscuring the inner teachings, I never developed a solid understanding of what the Immortals meant to convey.

Pleasant read 27 juillet 2013

I enjoy and respect Thomas Cleary's poetry translations and I appreciated the commentary by Chen Yingming. Immortal Sisters is nice as a historical document, but secret teachings are not revealed.
