Readings in Daoist Mysticism

ByLivia Kohn

A comprehensive reader, suitable equally for students and teachers of mysticism in theory and practice, this collects seven scholarly articles together with seven easily accessible translations of relevant primary sources. Topics covered include notions of body and mind, key features of mystical practice, distinctions between enstatic and ecstatic experiences, as well as the role of mystics in the world. Texts selected cover ancient philosophers, medieval manuals, and hagiographic accounts. The book is perfect for classes covering Daoism and Chinese religions, courses on Asian religions, and introductions to mysticism in comparative perspective. It can also be used for general information on the subject or to access relevant sources.
