Heart-Seal Scripture of the Exalted Jade Sovereign (Gaoshang yuhuang xinyin jing)



An anonymous scripture from Chinese internal alchemy. To understand it, one needs to understand the three treasures:

  1. physical sexual matter (ching-ye )
  2. sexual energy (qi / chi 氣 / 炁)
  3. consciousness, divinity (ching-shen )

These three are mutually interdependent and interconnected.

As this scripture explains, spiritual awakening depends upon them.

In synthesis, the scripture is closely related to the prajnaparamita literature of Buddhism, which explain that ultimate reality (suchness, Shunyata, the Absolute) is one with form, matter: to perceive this reality, one must master meditation, and to do this, one must have the three treasures united within.
