About the Author

Jiang Weiqiao (1873 1958), born in Changzhou in the Jiangsu province of China, is famous for his influential book Yinshizi's Method of Quiet Sitting which he wrote after curing his pulmonary tuberculosis through the practice of Jing Gong (quiet sitting). Jiang Weiqiao was a big advocate of using Qi Gong and Jing Gong to maintain good health and to prevent disease and illness. He gave many lectures about Qi Gong and contributed several important publications related to Qi Gong practice. His other major works include History of Buddhism in China (1929), History of Chinese Philosophy in the Last Three Hundred Years (1933), and General Discourse on Buddhist Studies. Jiang Weiqiao died in 1958 at the age of 85. Chen Yingning (1880 1969), Daoist name Yuandunzi, was a native of Huaining, Anhui. After passing the imperial examinations at the local level toward the end of the Qing dynasty and graduating from the Anhui College of Law and Political Science, he turned to the study of Daoism instead of pursuing a career as a government official, and spent his time touring famous mountains and Daoist temples, seeking teachers and visiting friends. For more than sixty years, he remained a devoted scholar of Daoist teachings and gained considerable expertise on Daoist breathing methods and ways of building up the life force. In the 1930s, he worked as chief editor of Daoist Virtues Bi-weekly and Daoists' Monthly, and wrote multiple volumes on Daoism. After 1957 he served as Vice Director, and later, Director of the Chinese Daoist Association. He gained wide influence and prestige in the Daoist community and made contributions to Daoism.
