Mnemonics for the mountain hermits


By Sharon Weizenbaum

The character 訣 jué which appears in the title of the text the 輔契訣 Fŭxíngjué means “rhymed or pithy mnemonic formula” or “tricks of the trade”. The character compound 輔契 Fŭxíng  is translated as “assisting in action.” The Fŭxíngjué is then a text of “mnemonics to assist in action”. Who and with what are these mnemonics meant to assist?
