To travel through China is to walk on holy ground. To undertake a pilgrimage to one of the sacred mountains of China is to travel back in time over three thousand years. To understand the soul of China, you must see the sacred in China, which is there in the designs of buildings, the street plans of the cities, in the household shrines at the back of the shops and in the concept that the very land of China is itself sacred. 'Sacred China' is a guide to the soul of China: to the vast religious and spiritual heritage of the many faiths which have emerged or interacted within China. It is also a guidebook which enters into the spirit of the Tao, the Way through which the culture and traditions of China are brought to life. Thus the traveller becomes the pilgrim. Martin Palmer has been a student of Chinese language and culture for over 20 years. He has translated numerous major Chinese religious texts, and written many books on Chinese religion and culture.
