山居吟 1
Shan Ju Yin

As with Yu Hui Tushan, although the version here is quite different from the one in SQMP, it remains attributed to Mao Minzhong, a famous qin player who flourished at the end of the Southern Song dynasty in Hangzhou, its capital.

For further information see the Shen Qi Mi Pu version of Shan Ju Yin.

 
Zheyin Shizi Qinpu preface:4

The introduction is the same as in Shen Qi Mi Pu, except that it begins

"The Beyond-Sounds Immortal says...according to the Royal Ancestor's Handbook..." and it ends with:

Ah! This wish to find pleasure among springs and rocks is so interesting!
