*** History and Development of the Wild Goose Qigong ***
The Wild Goose Qigong originated from the Kunlun School of Taoism In the Kun Lun Mountains of South-Western China. It was here during the Jin Dynasty around 265AD that a hermit named Si Dao An (the Peaceful Way) observed the movements of the many wild geese that haunt the area and began to incorporate these bending, stretching, twisting and fluttering techniques into a health-enhancing routine called the Dayan Gong (Wild Goose Qigong) (Wilde, 2006). "
"In Taoist tradition it is said that "Starry Beings," immortals from another galaxy, or a higher plane of existence descended to the Kunlun Shan 6,000 years ago bringing with them the secrets of the universe. These beings lived among humans and taught the secrets of life. They reincarnated as buddhas, boddhisattvas, and immortals."
"Yang Mei Jun (1895â 2002)
The teachings of the Wild Goose Qigong were handed down as secret doctrine. Traditionally, one could not teach the system until the age of 70, and then only to a single student (Tze, 2002). Yang Meijun was 27th generation lineage holder of the Kunlun System. She began her qigong training at the age of 13 when her 73 year old grandfather taught her. Although small in stature this remarkable woman worked for many years developing and preserving this unique system of Qigong.
In 1978, after the death of her husband she made the decision to publicly teach her many systems of qigong, as she wanted to pass its many benefits on to others and strengthen the Chinese population after the end of the Cultural Revolution (Robinson, 2002).
There are many remarkable stories about her life and abilities. Some examples include tales of her training nightly in secret with her grandfather at 3am, and even once being buried alive by Japanese soliders during their occupation of Manchuria. According to witnesses, at 101 years old she was able to leap several feet in the air and had been known to cure terminally ill people with Qi from her hands (Zhi, Dao Guan, 2006).
The Spread of Modern Wild Goose Qigong
In recent times the Wild Goose Qigong has flourished, and the first âpre-64â form has become one of the most popular styles. It is one of the eleven qigong methods that are officially Chinese government sanctioned, who thoroughly traced its linage, history and researched its benefits. Mme Yang MeiJun was given a place on the council of China Scientific Research Institution of Qi Gong, and made honorary professor of many universities. As such, Wild Goose Qigong is now taught in the government wushu schools in China, and is practiced all over the world (Zhang, 2000)."
H. P. Blavatsky wrote:
"To the present day Foh-tchou,* who lives in his Foh-Maeyu, or temple of Buddha, on the top of the "Kouin-long-sang," â the great mountain, produces his greatest religious miracles under a tree called in Chinese Sung-Ming-Shu, or the Tree of Knowledge and the Tree of Life, for ignorance is death, and knowledge alone gives immortality. This marvellous display takes place every three years, when an immense concourse of Chinese Buddhists assembles in pilgrimage at the holy place."
"â This mountain is situated south-west of China, almost between China and Tibet."
