Thomas Cleary says: “Sun Bu-er, whose given name means ‘Peeless,’ was born in 1124 C.E. She had three children and took up single-minded Taoist practice when she was fifty-one years old. This pattern of entering fully into spiritual Immortalism only after attaining maturity and fulfilling the normal requirements of social life was highly approved of in the Complete Reality school, according to which preliminary work could be done while in the ordinary world.”
