Yu ke - the 'feathered guests'
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Circa 1766 BC, China:
"The Xian were immortals capable of flight under their own divine power. They were said to be ‘feathered’, and a term that has been used for Taoist priests is yu ke, meaning 'feathered guest'. The fei tian, which might be translated as 'flying immortals', also add to the numbers of airborne beings in the Chinese mythological corpus." Source: Dr. Benjamin B. Olshin
