The Book of Burial (Chineset , s , p Zàngshū) was an AD 4th- or 5th-century work by the Taoist mystic Guo Pu.

The work was a commentary on the now-lost Classic of Burial (t , s );[1] as it survived and transmitted the classic's teachings, the Book of Burial's principles relating the flow of qi to the appropriateness of a tomb's location were influential on the development of fengshui.
