If there is one feature of martial arts training that elevates one's art beyond physical boundaries and exemplifies its divine qualities, it's the practice of meditation. The invocation of spiritual deities provides martial artists with access to universal powers transcendent to the physical abilities developed through external training.
Some of the more practical benefits provided by frequent meditation are: the subjugation of latent aggressive tendencies that are an essential component of the combat mind-set, the counteraction of fear, as well as the development of extraordinary focal abilities. Perhaps, more importantly, meditation can lead to heightened spiritual development, which is the highest expression of Kung Fu.
In spite of this, few would argue with the fact that the vast majority of martial artists spend a disproportionate amount of time perfecting fighting techniques, compared to time spent meditating and nurturing the spirit. This imbalance of (yin) internal meditation and (yang) external physical training is in conflict with the most fundamental Taoist principle of equality between the two cosmological energies (yin and yang).
To assist us in this often overlooked under-estimated element of martial arts practice, specific formulas were developed by our martial ancestors. These formulas are famed for their ability to enhance meditation, improve concentration and focus, calm the spirit (abate restlessness), and sedate without stupefying the user -- which allow us to reach deeper levels of meditation.
One such formula is Yuan Qi Elixir, which is composed of nine herbs dang gui, du zhong, gan cao, gou qi zi, lu rong, ren shen, shan yao, shan zao ren, and shu di huang. All are powerful herbs that are used to invigorate the Dan Tien and calm the spirit, revitalize and nourish the blood and Qi, especially in the lower Jiao (the lower region of the body where the vital energy is refined and circulated through the body).
