Daoist Mystical Philosophy: The Scripture of Western Ascension by Livia Kohn

The Scripture of Western Ascension is a central text of medieval Daoist mysticsm, allegedly containing oral instructions Laozi gave to Yin Xi, the Guardian of the Pass, when he transmitted the Daode jing, which it resembles in structure and contents. Written in the fifth century, the text has played an important role in Daoist religious thought and had a major impact on the school of Twofold Mystery in the early Tang. This study examines the text in its historical unfolding and studies its mythological framework narrative as well as philosophical, mystical dimensions. The book also contains a full translation of the text, carefully annotated with regard to textual variants. It is an exemplary study of an important philosophical Daoist document.
