Last Night (20 April 2008), a few of us the Taoist Spiritual People gathered together to have a Dim Sum Dinner at Rui Chun Dian Xin Shop located at Jalan Bersah, as we had our Dinner, we also discussed about the ways of Promoting of our Upright Culture of Taoism, the Future of Local Zheng Yi Sect and also, how to get in more interested Parties to join in the Group to promote our Culture and get the Teaching to pass down Generation by Generation.

So who attended?

Thanks to Taoist Priest Simon Lee of Hian Eng Taoist Group aka Xian Ying Dao Tan, Bro Matt from UK London, me of Long Shan Dao Tan and last, my lastest Student Donnie.

In here, will really like to express my Thanks to Donnie who rushed down from his work to the Hotel where Bro Matt was staying to fetch us to the Dinner and then to some other places for a quick Night Tour. With his sincerity and kindness, all of us are really happy and appreciated.

So what have we discussed?

During the starting of the Dinner, Priest Simon and Bro Matt were discussing about the various Qi Gong styles then switched to the Healing Energies from various Taoist Practice, then to the Visualization Skills that we used in Taoist Rituals/Ceremonies and last, the current situation on our Local Taoism and the future of our Zheng Yi Sect.

As all of us know that, today, in Singapore, Not much Priests or Taoists will dare to claim themselves as a follower of Zheng Yi Sect. Why? Due to the Political Issues and the Wrong promoting of Culture from the various Organisations.

This is really a Pity scene to see and Terrible news to know.

And so, we discuss about how to attract more interested parties to join us to do the promotion.

So, we briefly come up with some ideas, such as doing more simple translation on our Taoist Scriptures, doing Reports on Taoist Rituals/Ceremonies not commercial type but the Traditional type, by imparting the Upright and yet interesting information to the newer Generation and last, to stop the destructive wrong promotion on the Folks Culture that affected the image & Reputation of our Upright Taoism.

As discussed, now a lot of the Folks tend to treat a lot of Folks Culture to be the Upright Culture and Teaching of our Taoism, which this is Not Accurate and True, cos, even though Folks Culture is a minor Part of Taoism, but they do not have the Authorities to speak up or represent the Big Dao.

And so, as time goes by, our Upright Taoism will be strongly affected by such ignorant scenes and last, lead to the Death of our Upright Taoism.

As we had our discussion on the Dinner, time flies and so, soon we had to make our move to a short tour, and this marked the end of the Day.

Look forward to the next meeting up and hope that more people will be able to join in the Fun.

Do you all organize any classes to educate the public? The 2 groups of people worth looking into are the young to middle-aged adults with the passion to pass down their knowledge to the other group which consists of the young who are still open and not afflilated to other religions. smile.gif

There are 2 Taoist organizations in Singapore, Taoist Federation and Taoist Mission, as mentioned in the website. I just wonder if they offer classes to the public too. smile.gif

This one, you have to ask them, cos my School does not have any connection with them.

The teachings that my School has are being imparted down since Tang Dynasty, in South East Asia, only in Singapore, you can find the only Lineage - which is me left.
