Hidden Immortal Lineage

It is said that XiWangMu 西王母 (Queen Mother of the West) of KunLun 崐崘 Mountain was the first person to start teaching Qi cultivation techniques to help others become immortals. In the Daoist tradition, she is addressed as JinGuang XuanMu 金光玄母 (Golden Light Mystical Mother). Historically, the next important teacher of shamanism and Daoism is XuanYuan 軒轅, otherwise known as the Yellow Emperor. He passed down secret cultivation techniques of immortality after he became immortal. More than 2,000 years after the Yellow Emperor, another very important teacher appeared in the Zhou dynasty (1027–256 BCE). This was Laozi 老子, whom we also call TaiShang LaoJun 太上老君 (the Most High Lord Lao). Although many people benefited from Laozi’s teachings, two stand out: ShaoYang ZuShi 少陽祖師 (whose original name was Wang XuanFu 王玄甫) and WenShi ZhenRen 文始真人 (whose original name was Yin Xi 尹喜). These masters started two immortal cultivation teaching lineages: ShaoYang Lineage and WenShi Lineage:

The WenShi Lineage is also called Yin XianPai 隱仙派, the Hidden Immortal Lineage, or YouLong Pai 猶龍派, the 'Just Like a Dragon Lineage' as the masters in this lineage were hermits, just like hidden dragons. WenShi ZhenRen taught Yijing prediction techniques and internal alchemy cultivation secrets to MaYi DaoZhe Li He 麻衣道者李和. MaYi DaoZhe passed his practice on to XiYi XianSheng Chen Tuan 希夷先生陳摶.  HaiChanZi Liu Cao, from the Complete Reality Lineage, passed his internal alchemy practices on to Chen Tuan 陳摶. Then Chen Tuan passed his lineage to HuoLong ZhenRen 火龍真人.

HuoLong ZhenRen was so deeply hidden deep that no one knew his real name. He did not teach his secrets to anyone until he met Zhang SanFeng ZuShi 張三丰祖師, who had been praying intensely for a teacher for over 30 years. At that time, HuoLong ZhenRen finally passed his secrets on to 67-year-old Zhang SanFeng ZuShi. SanFeng ZuShi passed his secrets on to several different students, including passing his knowledge of Taiji Quan 太極拳 to Wang ZongYue 王宗岳.

My master, Yang YongJi 楊永積 was the 12th generation student of Wang ZongYue.  The Taiji form I have passed to western students comes directly from his teachings.
