Dān Tián Zhī Zhōng Jīng Qì Wēi
The Cinnabar Field (Dan Tian) of the Center contains the Refined Energy,
the Basic Motive Qi of Life (Jing Qi), this being Abtruse (Wei) by nature.
Qí Xià Sān Cùn Shì Yĕ Fāng Yuán Yì Sān Cùn Qí
Qì Wēi Miào Cún Zhī Zé Zài Wáng Zhī Zé Wú Yòu Yì Shī Gù Yuè Wēi
Underneath the Navel about three inches is where it is found.
It has a circumference of three inches, and the Qi there is Delicate and Subtle (Mei).
This also is where it will accumulate.
However, this generally tends to be overlooked and neglected.
But, without [practiced] repetition Change (Yi) will fail.
This is the reason it is called 'Abtruse' (Wei).
Yù Chí Qīng Shùi Shàng Shēng Féi
The Jade Pool with its clean waters flowing upward,
produces Life and Fertility.
Yù Chí Kŏu Yĕ Qīng Shùi Kŏu Zhōng Jīn Yè
Yĕ Shàng Shēng Féi Zhĕ Jīn Yè Hùi Jù Shé Shàng Gù Yuè Féi Yĕ
The Jade Pool (Yu Chi) is inside the Mouth.
The Clean Water (Qing Shui) found in the Mouth is the Saliva Juices.
Filling up with Life, Fertile.
These are the Fluids of the Body.
All meet together in union at the Tongue, and then brim out [from it].
Therefore this is called 'Fertile' (Fei).
