Dunhuang Manuscript P.3282、P.2455、S.6841 has been named “Lingbao Natural Fast” by academic circle, which is one of the Lingbao Six Fasts in The Six Dynasties. Many of the Taoist ritual texts In the late Tang and early Song dynasty claimed that “Natural Worship Ritual” was the origin of the Ritual Fast in Taoism, and this opinion is worth further studying and exploring. This article based on Dunhuang Manuscript “Lingbao Natural Fast” aims to analyze the contents and the function inside the “Natural Worship Ritual” and ”Natural Fast”, will try to explain the possible origin and meaning as well. Through this study we hope to clarify many issues in the early Taoist Ritual development.
