|Ever since the adepts handed on
The secret of the sword,
The true imperative has been upheld
Completely, truly adamant.
The subtle function of spiritual work
Is truly hard to measure;
I now give an explanation for you.
In telling you about it
I divulge the celestial mechanism.
The precious sword fundamentally has no form;
The name is set up because it has spiritual effect.
Learning the Tao and practicing reality
Depend on this sword:
Without this sword,
The Tao cannot be achieved.
Excerpt from The Book of Balance and Harmony,
13th century Taoist Handbook (or Manual)
