HUANG DI




Long Bojian explains the association of the Nei jing with Huang Di
with two arguments. First, the Nei jing emphasizes the yin-yang and the fiveagents
doctrines, which, according to the Shi ji, had been introduced by Zou
Yan Ql. Because Zou Yan, in turn, venerated Huang Di, the Nei jing was
given his name.
Second, Long Bojian quotes a passage from the Huai nan zianlof the
second century b.c.: “The ordinary people often venerate the old and despise
the new. Hence those who set up the Way are forced to do so under
the names of Shen nong and Huang Di, and it is only then that they may enter
the discourse.”1
