Description: Epigrammatic, enigmatic, intensely poetic, the "Tao Te Ching" is the mystical, spiritual soul of Taoism, one of the three great religions (along with Confucianism and Buddhism) of ancient China. The Tao is usually translated as "the way" or "the path, " but it is better understood as a universal life force that flows around and through all things. The "Tao Te Ching" teaches us that happiness is found in becoming one with the Tao, which enables us to live in harmony, balance, and peace and to develop the virtues of humility, moderation, and compassion. Taoism emphasizes "non-dualistic" thinking and the interconnectedness of all life. The "dualistic thinker" looks at the world and sees differences, comparisons, and contrasts. The Taoist sage knows that all such judgments depend on the person making them, not on the reality of what is being judged. Unlike theistic (God-centered) religions, Taoism does not involve prayer to a deity. Instead, Taoists meditate on the wisdom in the "Tao Te Ching", seeking to unravel the paradoxes and understand the complexities that lie within its simple language.

Gia-Fu Feng was prominent as both an English translator (with his wife, Jane English) of Daoist classics and a Daoist teacher in the United States.

Lao Tzu, Chinese philosopher, was a native of Chu, a southern state during the Zhou dynasty. His birth and death dates are uncertain. He is considered to be the founder of Taoism. According to legend, Lao Tzu set out on a journey to leave China. At the border, he was asked by a border guard to record his teachings. These teachings were compiled into what we know as the Tao-te-Ching, translated as the Classic of the Way and Virtue.
