Xuán Jī Xuán Zhū Huán Wú Duān
[Like an] Armillary-Sphere hanging suspended, the Pearls are linked in a ring,
circling about for what seems to be no particular reason.
Xuán Jī Yùn Zhuàn Qì Mài Liú Tōng Wú Fù Xiū Jìng Yĕ Bì Kŏu Yǎng
Shén Shù Liàn Lǐ Quán Rú Liú Zhū
An Armillary-Sphere operates by revolving.
Qi in the Pulse circulates without return or rest throughout.
The Mouth is used to nourish the energy by gargling and rinsing,
with Refinement caused by the flowing waters of the Sweet Fountain.
In compliance with this, are the 'Drifting-Around Pearls' (the Eyeballs).
Xùn Pǐn Jīn Yào Cháng Wán Jiān Xùn Pǐn Jīn
Yào Cháng Wán Jiān
Fast is the Female,
golden is the Flute.
Constant use of them results in firmness and solidity.
Yīn Wéi Pǐn Yáng Wéi Yào Liǎng Bù Xiāng Shāng Dé Zhōng Hé
Zhī Qì Huán Jīng Liàn Xíng Gù Dé Wán Jiān
Yin stands for the Female,
Yang stands for the Flute.
Between the two there is no mutual injury.
The result is neutralization of the Qi as it returns in
refinement repeatedly until is obtained perfect purity of the body.
Therefore, the ultimate result does finish up being solid and firm.
