Sun Si Miao 1
This is the first chapter of Sun Si Miao.
Sun Si Miao (581-682 CE. Sui and Tang dynasty) belonged to the Yu Qing Huang Lao Pai (Jade Purity Yellow Emperor Lao Tzi School), as Master Jeffrey C. Yuen (88th generation). He was a famous Chinese medicine doctor in the Taoist tradition. He is a major reference for his significant contribution to medicine and tremendous care given his patients.
Sun Si Miao wrote two books that were both milestones in the history of Classical Chinese Medicine: Beiji Qian Jin Yao Fang (“Essential Formulas for Emergencies a Thousand Ducats of Gold Worth”) and Qian Jin Yi Fang (Supplement to the Essential Formulas Use Worth a Thousand Ducats of Gold). The former listed 5300 recipes for medicines, and the latter 2571.
Sun Si Miao gives precise indications to “self-cultivation” in his medical ethics:
- Be present to what you are doing
- Listen to the patient
- Keep contact with the divine through silence and meditation
Furthermore, Sun Si Miao believes that the alchemical transformation will improve life, and that changing oneself will modify illness.
