Greatest Kan and Li
Gathering the Cosmic Light
This booklet contains instructions for the final of the Kan and Li
meditation series, the Greatest Kan and Li. The essence of the Greatest
Kan and Li practice is the establishment of the cauldron at the Heart
Center, also known as the Middle Tan Tien or Cinnabar Palace, and
the further refinement of the soul and spirit. It is at the Heart
Center that most of the Greatest Kan and Li practices take place.
The coupling of the energies here, involving macrocosmic-microcosmic
energetics, is the central formula.
The Kan and Li practices point to the Taoist road
to spiritual immortality and Taoist internal alchemy. The immortal
fetus is produced, nurtured and finally matures into a spirit body
which unites one with the Tao. Master Mantak Chia is the first Taoist
to introduce this spiritual discipline to the Western public.
As well as the instructions for the Greatest Kan
and Li practices, the student is given instructions on the basic
formulae to practice in preparation for the higher practices. The
practitioner then learns the foundation procedures leading to coupling
at the Heart Center; the activation of the Cranial and Sacral Pumps
and the Alignment of the Three Triangle Forces. Coupling then leads
to the birth of the Inner Child or Pill of Immortality. Other practices
described in this booklet help you to draw energy from the Cosmos,
enabling you to "plug in" to a resource
of limitless power.
