Eight phrases

The eight verses or eight phrases in Zhineng Qigong were created by Dr. Pang.

The eight verses serve mainly to organize a qi field. Each verse has a special meaning and gets the practitioner into the qigong state before starting the practice. Through the visualization, qi is concentrated in the environment. The deeper a practitioner is in the qigong state, the stronger the effect of the qigong exercise. The eight verses are also suitable as an independent mantra.
