Notes:

  • The Secret of the Golden Flower Translated by Richard Wilhelm. Osho’s book The Secret Of Secrets is based on this translation.
  • The Secret of the Golden Flower Translated by Walter Picca.
  • Thomas Cleary has also translated, and commented upon, the treatise of Master Lu-Tzu; the result is to be found in his book carrying the same title. In it Cleary states that the flowering of the Golden Flower is a matter of intensified awareness:
    Using neither idea nor image, it
     [the alchemical praxis – jrædan] is a process of getting right to the root source of awareness itself. The aim of this exercise is to free the mind from arbitrary and unnecessary limitations imposed upon it by habitual fixation on its own contents. With this liberation, the conscious individual becomes a ‘partner of creation’ rather than a ‘prisoner of creation’. The experience of the blossoming of the golden flower is likened to light in the sky [gold within blue – jrædan], a sky of awareness vaster than images, thoughts, and feelings, an unimpeded space containing everything without being filled. Thus it opens up an avenue to an endless source of intuition, creativity, and inspiration. Once this power of mental awakening has been developed, it can be renewed and deepened without limit.
