Compared with theZhengyi School in the Mount Longhu Area,Shangqing School in Mount Maoshan Areaand Lingbao School in Mount Gezhao Area which was the three main school called FuluGroup,Tianxin derived from the Taoist Theory for Inner alchemy as well as thefolk-belief which was called New Fulu School. It was considered as a new school thatexerted an great influence on the common people during the Song and Yuan Dynasty. Asa new school on the base of the traditional Fulu Group,Tianqing school opened a newdoor to combine the taoist theory from Fulu Group with the method of InnerRefining.Further more,it also established and developed a new taoist method,ritualtradition,which made a far-reaching impact on many taoist schools that followed.Tianxin school made clear that they obeyed the positive law and it is the humanbody itself that is the neutral among Nature,Heaven and People according to the taoisttheoty of Negative and Positive,which can help understand the Narual Law. It alsobelieved only a pure meditation can help to know how to utilize the Natural Law calledTao and one must obey the law to adjust to the Nature. Tianxin school act and trainaccording to the idea of “Tao is the hint of Natural law”,in which Tao is invisible butbasic for the methods with which one can use Tao to penetrate the world. Thus, forminga relationship between Tao and the Natural Law called “inner core outer format”or“inner alchemy outer law”. Tianxin school keep musing inner adjustment and keepmusing Sanguang,hankering to reach the harmony between himself and the nature. TheMusing methords have two aspects. One is to muse Sangaung,the other is to muse thevariable law of God. Tianxin school has always attached great importance to spell,whichis in great many. But it merely use the following methods for the benefit of society andpeople:“three character two print”,as we discussed above that they keep musingSanguang and God,walking along the a line as one steps on the Big Dipper,praying forchinese God like Aeolus,Zeus,Demeter to bring a foison,together with the specialmethod to make use of a group of soldiers.
