Shrine of the Eternal Breath of Tao/ Universal Society of the Integral Way

Shrine of the Eternal Breath of Tao/ Universal Society of the Integral Way

Organization founded by Master Ni, Hua Ching, who had studied Taoism as a child in China. He moved to Taiwan after the Chinese Revolution. He continued his studies and became a teacher of Taoism and related martial and healing arts. During the 1970s, he moved to the United States and began to teach in Los Angeles.

This Toaist teaching concerns a universal law of subtle energy response. According to Master Ni, everything in the universe is a manifestation of energy in either its grosser or more subtle states. An understanding of how to develop the proper response to the energies of one's environment will bring harmony to one's life. The practice of Taoist meditation, martial arts (kung fu and t'ai chi ch'uan ), and medical practices (acupuncture and herbs) assist in attaining a balanced relationship to life. The universal law of response is claimed to be the basis of all spiritual practices.

The shrine is located in Los Angeles and sponsors the College of Tao and the Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Website: http://www.usiw.org/.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
