Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
The Tao, the undivided, great one, gives rise to two opposite reality principles, the dark and the light, yin and yang. From yin comes the receptive feminine principle; from yang comes the creative masculine principle; from yin comes ming, life; from yang, hsing or human nature.
Each individual contains a central monad, which, at the moment of conception, splits into life and human nature, ming and hsing.
In the personal bodily existence of the individual they are represented by two other polarities, anima and animus. All during the life of the individual these two are in conflict, each striving for mastery.
If the life-energy flows downward, that is, without let or hindrance into the outer world, the anima is victorious over the animus; no Golden flower is developed. If the life-energy is led through the 'backward-flowing' process, that is, conserved, and made to 'rise' instead of allowed to dissipate, the animus has been victorious. A man who holds to the way of conservation all through life may reach the stage of the Golden flower, which then frees the ego from the conflict of the opposites, and it again becomes part of the Tao, the undivided, great one.
