De 'Taoist Canon - A Historical Companion to the Daozang' geeft de volgende biografie:
Ge Hong, the descendant of a learned but poor family of Jurong county in Jiangsu, Ge Hong was the grandnephew of Ge Xuan. Selling wood to pay for his studies, Ge Hong acquired a vast knowledge in literature as well as various sciences and techniques, especially alchemy, medicine, and Taoist methods. He became the disciple of the hermit Zheng Yin, who taught him a method for transforming cinnabar. Later,
Ge served as a high military official. Eventually moving to Guangdong, he led a hermitic life on Mount Luofu. His aspiration was to achieve immortality, and his thought was a synthesis of Confucianism and longevity techniques, based mainly on outer alchemy. His most famous extant works are contained in the two collections Baopu zi neipian and Baopu zi waipian. His Biographies of divine Immortals (Shenxian zhuan), often quoted in ancient texts, is now lost but has been partially reconstructed. (Schipper 2004, p1260)
