This preparation is usually taken together with other formulas.  Commonly, a disturbance in other bodily energies will affect the Heart Spirit.  Disharmonies that are treated by Quiet Comtemplative, Relaxed Wanderer, Dynamic Warrior, or Prosperous Farmer can also affect the Heart Spirt and require the additon of the Compassionate Sage.  However, the Chinese do take this formulation alone if the appearance of a Sage pattern is present and unaccompanied by other indications. - Kan Herbals Formula Guide

Chinese name hu po yang xin dan
English name Compassionate Sage, (8 oz.)
Description "This is the traditional formula for someone who has the potential for friendliness, humbleness, charm, and clarity, but instead lives in a state of frivolousness, envy, vanity, forgetfulness, and muddledness. This preparation is concerned with that part of the Fire element's power that is clear, makes it presence felt, and enlighten the outer environment and inner world." - Kan Herbals Formula Guide

"The Compassionate Sage acts on that aspect of our lives that is distinctly human. It affects what the Chinese call 'shen" or spirit. The Spirit is what is outgoing, advancing, and connects to life; it centers us and allows us to reach out. It allows affinity and clarity, and when it's not nourished properly we can become scattered and lose our sensitivity. The 'style of government' of the Fire organ, according to old Chinese texts, is enlightened and compassionate. Our Sage preparation adds deep sympathy and lucidity to how we sense the universe and ourselves: the Sage is designed to help on compassionately embrace the cosmos and the self." - Kan Herbals Formula Guide

"The development of this herbal formulation has a long history. Sun Dong-Su's 'Tonify the Heart Powder' found in his Profound Pearl of the Red Water (1540 A.S.), is our point of departure. However, we have modeled the Compassionate Sage most directly after Shen Ji-Nao's prescription "Amber Nourishing the Heart Pill,' found in his On the Importance of Life Preservation (1773 A.D.). To strengthen it we've added biota seed, mimosa bark, red sage root and reishi mushroom to Dr. Shen's formula derived from Cheng Guo-Peng's famous 'Calming the Spirit, Centering the Will Pill,' found in his Enlightenment of Medicine, 1732 A.D.). - Kan Herbals Formula Guide
