Posted by: bao_pu (Scott Barnwell)Why is the Lüshi Chunqiu in the history section, or, for that matter the Chunqiu Fanlu?

Posted by: dsturgeon (Donald Sturgeon)Thanks for the reminder - these texts have been misclassified for some time. The main reason I hadn't moved them was that moving them requires some work to avoid disrupting the search system. They should now appear under 雜家.

Probably some other texts could also do with being reclassified. Ultimately the classification of many of these texts is largely arbitrary, and conclusions should not be drawn from which section a text is placed under.

Is it possible that you can include this text?
Excuse me if this is not the right place to ask this question.

Since 'The Secret of the Golden Flower' is a very late text I don't think it is likely to be posted on this site. The text can be found here: www.tbsn.idv.tw/viewthread.php...

If you are interested in gaining a wider perspective, then two works by Louis Komjathy, both called 'Daoist Texts in Translation', are very useful. The first is an annotated bibliography of Daoists texts and can be found at www.daoistcenter.org/texts.pdf. Finding the Chinese text is easier if you search under the Chinese characters so if you want to find a particular text copy the Chinese characters out and you can find the text for almost anything. That is how I found the Chinese of the text translated by Charles Luk as 'Taoist Yoga', which if you are interested can be found here: bjxywy.777.blog.163.com/blog/s...

The second text is more of a critical review of issues in the translation of Daoist texts which is quite interesting and can be found here: www.onmarkproductions.com/taoi...

I have checked the above links, the two for Komjathy's works seem to add an extra period at the end of the URL and I found that they come up with 'file not found', if so just go the the URL window and delete the period and hit enter this should pull up the correct document. The other two seem to work just as they are as far as I can tell from the from the post preview. I hope that you find this useful.

Posted by: jb1usaI, as well, am interested in this text, 太乙金华宗旨- Secret of the Golden Flower, but have failed to find a working traditional Chinese text version of it anywhere online. As snowflake pointed out above, the tbsn.idv.tw link previously provided is dead. Does anyone have a working link they can share? Many thanks for any help you can give.
