As philosophy, the Pan Gu Mysitcal Qigong practice embodies elements of thought that have appeared in different times and locations throughout history. One of those schools is known as Taoism. I am not en expert in Taoism, but have loved to read the Tao Te Ching since I was a teenager. Here is one of the verses that provides some linkage to Pan Gu philosophy. When Master Ou was in Bonita Springs this year I asked him about Lao Tzu. His response was that it is "close" to what we are trying to accomplish. He then repeated from memory the first lines of the Tao Te Ching:
The Tao that can be told is not the
The name that can be named is not the
Here is a verse that I like and find complementary to the fundamentals expresses in the Pan Gu password:
The highest good is like water.
Water gives life to the ten thousand
things and does not strive.
It flows in places men reject and so is
like the Tao.
In dwelling, be close to the land.
In meditation, go deep in the heart.
In dealing with others, be gentle and
In speech, be true.
In ruling, be just.
In daily life, be competent.
In action, be aware of the time and the
No fight: No blame.
I am sure you can see the wisdom in these lines and how living them would be very much in keeping with the practice of Pan Gu Shengong. This is just one example of a profound parallel with Pan Gu philosophy. I believe that there is this connection because the root of PanGu practice goes deeply into the past, and deeply into the reality of the universe, which it the same for all times and locations.
