Yunhe Chen, a Daoism Priest of the Zhengyi Daoism, religion named Da Xiang. Priest Yunhe studied and practiced the Daoist Elixir and Medicine for many years, he is the successor of the Daoist “Tai Su” Pulse diagnosis. He is the Standing Director of the Taoist Association of Sichuan Province, the Standing Director of Chengdu Taoist Association, the Vice President of the Guangyuan Taoist Association, the President of the Jiange Taoist Association. He is also in charge of the Heming Temple of Mt. Heming in Jiange Pu’an town.
Priest Yunhe dreamed of martial arts since young, wished to follow Priest Zongfa You from Mt. Gexian of Peng County in Sichuan Province, who specialised in Ermei martial arts, and learn “Sipingquan” and “Huolongquan”. As a talented student, he was guided by Priest You in practicing Neigong first and then Daoist Medicine. He started to learn the “Tai Su” pulse diagnosis as well. Later, he followed Master Zhao from Chengdu, and mastered the advanced contents of the “Tai Su” pulse diagnosis. Priest Yunhe also followed Mr Tidao Jia to study the philosophy of Daoism, I Ching and the Daoist Elixir, furthermore he followed an Astronomy Master Zihua Liu to learn the Eight Trigrams (Bagua). After the series of studying and self-practicing, apart from having a much deeper understanding to the Daoism and progressive skills in practicing Daoist medicine, Priest Yunhe also brought up a contrasting theory from the traditional fundamentals of the “Tai Su” pulse diagnosis - the “Daoist Medicine Tong Zhong Lun”, hence providing a comprehensive interpretation on the Daoist medicine in terms of its origin, theories, pulse diagnosis, application of herbs and health maintenance. Later, he became the last disciple of the leader of Zhengyi Daoism, Master Liansheng Chen.
In July 1997, Priest Yunhe was invited by the Ministry of Culture, People's Republic of China to participate in the "Chinese Cultural Festival" held in Europe (including Netherlands, Germany, France, etc.), and to promote the Daoist medicine, during which he demonstrated the Daoist “Tai Su” pulse diagnosis. The precise diagnostic results created a sensation in the conference. He played a positive role for the West-East cultural exchanges and was praised by the Chinese and foreign media.
