Major and Minor Cycle of the Universe (Macro and Micro Cosmic), da xiao zhou tian 大小周天
by: Joe Hing kwok Chu
The basic foundation training of dao jia (Daoist philosophers) is the minor cycle of the universe and the major cycle of the universe. It is difficult for the general public to read the old Chinese writing on these training. The same physiological location of the body can be called several different names in the same article to confuse the outsiders. For example dan tian in the same article can be called he dong, huang tin etc. Today the different qigong book writers each of them has his or her own version of what the trainings are. It is like the Chinese saying "It is easier to draw ghosts than to draw people." because nobody has seen a ghost or very small number of people had had these trainings until the Red Chinese Government started to promote qigong in the late fifties or early sixties.
Minor Cycle of the Universe (micro cosmic cycle)
Moving the qi downward along ren mai to the perinium and up the tu mai at the back to complete a cycle is called the minor cycle of the universe.
it is important to note that this practice is not suitable for every body.
Major Cycle of the Universe (macro cosmic cycle)
Moving the qi to all the jin luo (meridians) of the body are back is call major cycle.
