Song of the Real Meaning of Taijiquan

1. “No shape, no shadow” (無形無象).

2. “Entire body transparent and empty” (全身透空).

3. “Forget your surroundings and be natural” (忘物自然).

4. “Like a stone chime suspended from West Mountain” (西山懸磬).

5. “Tigers roaring, monkeys screeching” (虎吼猿鳴).

6. “Clear fountain, peaceful water” (泉清水靜).

7. “Turbulent river, stormy ocean” (翻江鬧海).

8. “With your whole being, develop your life” (盡性立命).
