Unabridged (100% Original content) Font adjustments & biography included Illustrated About Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu The Tao Te Ching, Daodejing, Dao De Jing, or Daode jing , also simply referred to as the Laozi , is a Chinese classic text. According to tradition, it was written around 6th century BC by the sage Laozi , a record-keeper at the Zhou dynasty court, by whose name the text is known in China. The text's true authorship and date of composition or compilation are still debated, although the oldest excavated text dates back to the late 4th century BC. The Tao Te Ching, along with the Zhuangzi, is a fundamental text for both philosophical and religious Taoism, and strongly influenced other schools, such as Legalism, Confucianism, and Chinese Buddhism, which when first introduced into China was largely interpreted through the use of Daoist words and concepts. Many Chinese artists, including poets, painters, calligraphers, and even gardeners, have used the Daodejing as a source of inspiration. Its influence has also spread widely outside East Asia, and is among the most translated works in world literature. The Wade-Giles romanization "Tao Te Ching" dates back to early English transliterations in the late 19th century; its influence can be seen in words and phrases that have become well established in English. "Daodejing" is the pinyin romanization.

Download and read online The New Lao Tzu in PDF and EPUB "A new interpretation of the Tao Te Ching, this book is a celebration of the Way of Harmony and Balance." "Ray Grigg transforms what has been traditionally called the Tao Te Ching, what he calls the Lao Tzu, from the mysterious to the meaningful. He accomplishes this by abandoning the historical convention of a literal reading of the Chinese texts. The result is a poetic expression of ancient wisdom in a language that readers can approach directly." "The wisdom of the Lao Tzu rests in its ability to tease confusion into insight that is beyond the confinement of intellectual understanding. Beautifully illustrated with ink drawings by Bill Gaetz, The New Lao Tzu demonstrates that living the wisdom of the Lao Tzu requires more instinct than reason, more intuition than argument."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Download and read online The Haiku Tao Te Ching in PDF and EPUB The "Tao Te Ching" is the foundation of Taoism. Its empowering philosophy has enlightened minds for millennia. Now, in this new simplified format, this ancient wisdom is easier than ever to read, comprehend, and internalize. This illustrated version is further enhanced with inspiring photographs and other graphics that facilitate a richer experience with the ancient content. Many of the pictures are themselves each a meditation. Translated literally, “the Tao” is “the Way” or “the Path.” It is the way of heaven, or the path to enlightenment. However, in some contexts, it seems to describe the same thing that various texts refer to as “Source,” “intelligence,” “the spirit of God,” or “the light of Christ” that creates and sustains everything in existence. By aligning with that light, or walking that path, our awareness increases, giving us expansive love, joy, deep inner stillness, peace beyond reason, a sense of wholeness within, and oneness with all of creation. This Tao consciousness enlightenment is also called Krishna consciousness, Buddha consciousness, or Christ consciousness. It is all the same awakened consciousness. Considering the "Tao Te Ching" concepts taught by Jesus in the Bible, and considering the non-Biblical stories of his many travels with Joseph of Arimathea, it is apparent that Jesus had learned the Tao. He self-identifies with it when he says, “I am the way” (John 14:6). With that same Tao consciousness, each of us may also self-identify with it. Likewise, he self-identifies with “the light of the world” (8:12) and encourages us to do the same (Matthew 5:14). Learn the Tao. Align with the Tao. Then be the Tao. Be the way.

It has been translated into virtually every written language in the world, with more than 60 versions existing in English alone. This brand-new translation with modern commentary by a student of Eastern Asian culture is of unusual value in that it reflects recent manuscript discoveries in China. Examined in light of modern scholarship methods, the discoveries suggest that previous translations of this seminal philosophical work are wrong in several important details. Stephen Hodge's commentaries explore the Tao Te Ching by placing its concepts and observations in the context of ancient Chinese culture, and then pointing out the philosophy's key ideas as they relate to the lives of men and women today. In discussing the limitations of words and language, he emphasizes our need to go beyond words in our quest for universal truths. The philosophical work's traditional 81 short chapters are arranged thematically, and are supplemented with commentary that explains both the ancient and modern significance of each text. More than 100 photographs complement the text with scenes of natural peace and serenity.
