The Method of Holding the Three Ones(1980)
A non fiction book by Poul Andersen
This study is based on historical sources from the formative period of the Mao-shan sect (4th - 5th century A.D.). It deals with a meditational tradition associated with 'Jin-que-di-jun', the supreme ruler of the millenium to come. The object of this meditation is the supreme trinity of gods, The Three Ones, who exist simultaneously in the universe and in the microcosm of the individual. Through visualization and concentration this presence is reinforced, and thus immortality is achieved. The work includes an integral translation of the basic scripture of this tradition, 'Jin-que-di-jun san-yuan-zhen-yi jing', accompanied by copious notes. The introduction includes an exposition of the general background of the text with a discussion of the basic ideas of the meditational tradition in question.
