Affection for one’s parents is not equal to eternally venerating the Dao

The below text is a translation by Tianma of a post of Daoist Master Zhao Ming Wang on his Chinese language blog “Daojia Qianfeng Xingming Shuangxiu de boke” (道家千峰性命双修的博客) or ‘Daoist Qianfeng Double Cultivation of Essential Nature and Eternal Life blog’.  

Affection for one’s parents is not equal to eternally venerating the Dao – Daoist Qianfeng Pre-Heaven School – Traditional Chinese Culture Health Exercises, Secret Daoist Family Lineage Method of Health Exercises.

Master Zhao Ming Wang and Dong Ying Gang

Today Dong Ying Gang (董英刚) (the husband of the (older) sister of my wife) and I get along more than 20 years, both of us being very fond of Daoist practice. Usually I also teach him some Daoist health practice, because two years ago he asked me why not pass on true Daoist gongfu. We talked about the fact that the Daoist practice cannot be passed on without being a disciple. After seriously considering this for two years, he made a firm resolution; those aspirants who sincerely seek the Dao, break all familial ties. He payed his respects to the Qianfeng Pre-Heaven School and entered to become a disciple.
