The key problem of the research on the levels of the qigong state is how to make a correct judgment. There is no scientific detection systems and the detection usually depends on self-consciousness and the descriptions in ancient medical classics. It affects the popularization of qigong exercises and often makes confusion.
The author advocates the production of qi and connecting between the Ren and Du Meridians is the criterion for the judgment of the qigong state. There are 5 levels of circle of qi, i.e., (l) Internal qi starts to produce; (2) Warm at Dantian; (3) Beating between the heart and kidney; (4) Minor circle of qi; (5) Major circle of qi.
