Wudang Taoist Workshops 2016: Video Clips


 

1. Chaung Tzu's Dream of Butterfly
"Once upon a time, Chuang Chou, dreamt that he was a butterfly, a butterfly flitting and fluttering about happily enjoying himself. He did not know that he was Chuang Chou. Soon he awaked, and palpably was Chuang Chou again. He did not know whether he was Chuang Chou who had dreamed he was a butterfly, or whether it was a butterfly, dreaming that it was Chuang Chou. Between Chou and a butterfly there must be a distinction. This is called the transformation of things."

Master Hu Xuezhi gave his understanding about this story during the Wudang Taoist Study Workshops. People are welcome to watch the video on Youtube here: http://youtu.be/2pRcJdOvI08
 

 

2. Chuang Tzu's Story: Little Pigs and Their Dead Mother

This is lecture made by Master Hu Xuezhi during the Wudang Taoist Study Workshops.

The original text runs in such way:

"Once I went on a mission to the Ch’u State," replied Confucius, "I saw some little pigs sucking at the body of their dead mother. After a while, they gave a start and all ran away to leave her. For their mother could no longer entertain her own self, nor did she seem to be as same as she had been before. Their mother that they loved was not the body, but that which made the body what it was."

3. Chapter 47: Tao Te Ching By Master Hu Xuezhi
The chapter 47 of Tao Te Ching runs in such way:

Without going out of the door,
knowing all beneath heaven;
Without looking through the window,
catching sight of the Great Natural Way of Tao.
The farther one goes, the less one knows.
Thus the sage knows without traveling,
seeing all clearly without eyeing anything,
and accomplishes all wihtout taking any acquired action.

Here Master Hu Xuezhi uses his knowledge to give a detail understanding to this chapter and people can learn something from this particular vie point. Master Hu made this lecture during the Wudang Taoist Study Workshops.

4. Lecture Upon String Theory and Consciousness
Master Hu Xuezhi gave his understanding about the string theory and its relationship with consciousness during the Wudang Taoist Study Workshops.

String theory, in particle physics, is a theory that attempts to merge quantum mechanics with Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity. The name string theory comes from the modeling of subatomic particles as tiny one-dimensional “stringlike” entities rather than the more conventional approach in which they are modeled as zero-dimensional point particles. The theory envisions that a string undergoing a particular mode of vibration corresponds to a particle with definite properties such as mass and charge.
