I know you were asking about Buddhist qigong in another thread - there are a couple books I know of that cover a wide range of qigong practices, and have sections in them discussing Buddhist qigong . . . these books are "The Roots of Chinese Qigong" and "Qigong Empowerment." You may be able to find them at your library.
