In this beautifully illustrated offering of ancient wisdom, Deng Ming-Dao shares the secrets of the spiritual path handed down to him by Kwan Saihung, his Taoist master, as well as by herbalists, martial artists, and other practitioners of the ancient arts. Deng tells how Taoist philosophy and practice may be integrated into contemporary Western lifestyles for complete physical, mental, and spiritual health. He provides an abundance of philosophical and practical information about hygiene, diet, sexuality, physical exercise, meditation, medicine, finding one's purpose in life, finding the right teacher, death, and transcendence.
Ming-Dao Deng has devoted much of his life to studying the Tao. He was a student of Taoist master Kwan Saihung for 13 years, and he has written several books on the ancient wisdom accrued during his decades of practice. In Scholar Warrior, Ming-Dao Deng stresses the equality of physical and mental health for aspiring Taoists. The mind is nothing without the body, he states, and vice versa. Deng goes on to show how Taoist philosophy can be applied in modern daily life, writing that the path of the Tao "is one of self-cultivation". Fred Sanders captures the warm, instructive tone of the book, adopting the voice of a great teacher who might just change a listener's life.
