太平經 Taiping jing

Tàipíng jīng.
Engelse titel: The Scripture on great peace

ook Taiping qingling shu 太平清領書 -Book of the Pure Commands of the Great Peace.

Barbara Hendrischke, who has published an English translation of a significant portion of The Great Peace (juan 35–37, 39–49),19 argues that the bulk of the material in The Great Peace only makes sense if understood as issuing from the context of the popular Daoist religious movements of the Han dynasty. Most of it bears the format of conversations between an anonymous figure known as the Heavenly Master (Tianshi 天師) and his disciples who are referred to as Genuine Persons (zhenren 真人). The Heavenly Master presents himself as being on a mission from “Heaven” (tian 天) to proclaim a message that can reform government and society in a manner by which the impending apocalypse can be averted, a peaceful, just and happy society can be real- ized, and the best of people can attain immortality.
