The man who lived for more than 250 years
The Chinese man, Li Ching-Yuen, master of martial arts, tactical advisor to the Imperial army and herbalist, lived his life in the mountain ranges of China, gathering herbs and knowledge of longevity methods.

At the age of 130 Master Li encountered an older hermit in the mountains who taught him Baguazhang and a set of Qigong with breathing instructions, movements training coordinated with specific sounds, and dietary recommendations, which included the daily consumption of the goji berry, reishi, ginseng, he shou wu and gotu kola.

Da Liu reports that his master said that his longevity "is due to the fact that I performed the exercises every day - regularly, correctly, and with sincerity - for 120 years."

In 1927, Li Ching Yuen was invited by General Yang Sen to visit him in Wan Xian, Szechuan. The general was fascinated by his youthfulness, strength and prowess in spite of his advanced age. His famous portrait was photographed there. Returning home, he died a year later. Some say he died of natural causes, while others claim that he told friends that "I have done all I have to do in this world. I will now go home," before he died.

After Li's death, General Yang Sen investigated the truth about his claimed background and age. He wrote a report that was later published.

The article "Tortoise-Pigeon-Dog", from the May 15, 1933 issue of Time reports on his history, since it included Master Li Ching Yuen's answer to his secret of a long life:

• Keep a quiet heart
• Sit like a tortoise
• Walk sprightly like a pigeon
• Sleep like a dog
