Written by an unknown author, Seven Taoist Masters is the story of six men and one woman who overcome tremendous hardships on the journey to self-mastery. Eva Wong is the Chairperson and President of TopHuman, which was founded in Canada in 1995 and has expanded globally in the past 11 years.

History and legend are interwoven in this tale of adventure that both entertains and instructs. Written by an unknown author, Seven Taoist Masters is the story of six men and one woman who overcome tremendous hardships on the journey to self-mastery. These characters and their teacher, Wang Ch'ung-yang, are all historical figures who lived in the Southern Sung (1127–1279) and Yuan (1271–1368) dynasties. Wang is regarded as the greatest patriarch of the Complete Reality school, a highly purified branch of Taoism having a strong affinity with Zen Buddhism. The novel brings to life the essentials of Taoist philosophy and practice, both through the instructions offered by Wang—on topics such as the cultivation of mind and body, meditation techniques, and overcoming the four obstacles of anger, greed, lust, and drunkenness—and through the experiences of the characters.

A training manual written in the form of a story, the book: 'SEVEN TAOIST MASTERS: A Folk Novel of China' (c. 1990) translated by Eva Wong, introduced the reader to a blend of myth and history to both entertain and teach, in the form of lectures, the Taoist philosophy of Wang Ch'ung-yang and Ch'iu Ch'ang-ch'un. History had recorded that the disciple "Ch'iu Ch'ang-ch'un was befriended by Kublai Khan and was appointed court high priest during the reign of the first Yu'an Emporer" (p.xvii). And Wang Ch'ung-yang lived during the Sung (1127-1279) and Yu'an (1271-1368) dynasties.

Wang Ch'ang-yang (the rebirth of yang, or the rejuvenation of mind & body) was regarded as one of the greatest patriarchs of the school of True Reality (or the school of Complete Reality) and his students, the seven Taoist masters, were of the Northern School of Taoism, that branch of Taoism which advocates the 'singular path', where enlightenment and immortality are achieved through meditation and chi-kung exercises, it is the closest to Buddhism and Ch'an meditation of the Taoist sects. Ch'iu Ch'ang-ch'un, one of the seven masters, founded the Lung-men (Dragon Gate)sect of Taoism.

SEVEN TAOIST MASTERS presentd a mix of myth and history in the most appealing way to the reader conforming to the Taoist pedagogy of story telling to instruct as more accessible in an intuitive reading than as analytic reading of a text. The main character, Wang Ch'ung-yang, was approached by two immortals, Lu and Chung-li Ch'uan, dressed as beggars, who had to convert mortals into Taoist immortals before the flowering of the immortal peach so that the Empress of Heaven wouldn't have to eat it alone. While Buddhism emphasizes reincarnation, Taoism strives for immortality, by means of internal alchemy, the actual transformation of body & soul through various Taoist efforts and personal sacrifices of the apprentice.

So in the SEVEN TAOIST MASTERS, the experiences of Wang Ch'ung-yang are used as a vehicle to describe the attitudes and situations for Taoist training and the obstacles usually encountered on the road to enlightenment. The seven Taoist masters each represent seven different approaches to the Tao, and each master must negotiate an obstacle in their own way on the path to enlightenment. In this particular theology of Taoism is the belief that destiny can be changed by the actions of people, reward and retribution will be given according to one's behaviour.

The book, SEVEN TAOIST MASTERS, contained a number of typographical and grammatical errors, such as "propserous" (p. 89), and "emerge" for merge throughout the work, and a number of ancient Chinese woodblock illustrations; yet overall, this is an excellent introduction to the Northern School of Taoism using a primer originally written for the training of Taoists priests. Also, please read TAOIST MASTER CHUANG (c. 2000) by Michael R. Saso, to gain further insight into the life and training of a Taoist disciple.

The Greatest spiritual Movie ever made has not yet been made. Come on, aspiring screenwriters! This one is a hit! I've loved this book for years. and would love to see it on the big screen. Especially the moment Chiu Chang Chun offers his head to the police officers he has carried across the rushing river... and alas, one of the men has dropped the bandit's head he was taking to the Court. The story is so compelling that one forgets its a spiritual teaching. That's what makes it so helpful and appealing.

This is an interesting and easy to read Taoist novel. There is a list of other books by her to read as well. Also I found out that she has a mediation retreat in Colorado where you can stay and sign up for classes. Fees are extremely modest and include meals.

I bought this book to use as ispiration and support in practices my basic Toaist meditations. I read this book so fast I had to slow myself down so that I got more out of it and make it last longer!

Seven Taoist Masters is the story of a Taoist practitioner accomplishment of enlightenment/immortality and his leading seven disciples to this state. This book is great because it has teachings told in the form of a story making it very easy to incorporate personally. There are also direct teaching of masters given to disciples and many principles of the Tao are casually in the book allowing the reader to absorb the principles with little conscious effort. Fantastic book!

One of my favorite parts of the book was seeing Buddhism and Taoist existing together in Chinese society and the interaction of various Taoist and Buddhist masters. As a student of Buddhism for many years I found many teachings of the Buddha included in this book in the Taoist context. Very informational, transformational, and FUN book for me!

Like I said I couldn't put it down and was even reading to my girlfriend all the time, because I couldn't hold in my excitement with spiritual principles woven throughout the book. I am mailing the book to my mother now to (hopefully) share the growth, excitement, and inspiration I received from reading this. Enjoy!

Written by an unknown author, Seven Taoist Masters is the story of six men and one woman who overcome tremendous hardships on the journey to self-mastery. These characters and their teacher, Want Ch'ung-yang , are all historical figures who lived in the Southern Sung and Yuan dynasties.

The novel brings to life the essentials of Taoist philosophy and practice, both through the instruction offered by Wang - on topics such as cultivation of mind and body, meditation techniques, and overcoming the four obstacles of anger, greed, lust, and drunkenness - and through the experience of characters.

While all road eventually lead to the experience of the Tao, each individual's path is unique, as is the adventure of each master in this book.

I enjoyed it very much. I am very involved in Taoist Tai Chi classes, and we are discussing this book at a book club meeting once a month. The leader of the book club is very knowledgeable and able to explain the deeper meaning behind the story.
