Description The most widely translated work in world literature after the Bible, Tao Te Ching or The Book of the Way is the classic text of Taoism, the ancient Chinese school of thought.
Believed to be written by Lao-Tzu, the father of Taoism, Tao Te Ching applies timeless wisdoms on themes as diverse as statesmanship, ecology and love, and aims to give readers a serene and generous spirit. Stephen Mitchell's acclaimed new translation of the book's 81 homilies reveals as never before the gem-like lucidity and the pure poetry of this manual of the art of living from China of fourth century BC.
People who bought this also bought. The Art of War Sun Tzu. The Hua Hu Ching is one of them, a compilation of stories about Lao Tzu and his teaching activity from his elder years beyond the borders of China. Thought to have been suppressed for centuries, this rare text has been translated by contemporary Taoist teacher Hua-Ching Ni and serves as a thought-provoking companion volume to the Tao Te Ching. The Wen-tzu is a second book that is said to contain orally transmitted teachings from the life of Lao Tzu.
Usually when one speaks about essential reading for Taoism, the Tao Te Ching comes up first and the Chuang Tzu second. In many ways, they are the pillars on which the Taoist tradition is based. These teachings from an early Taoist sage are written in the form is easily relatable stories—fables, poetic verses, meandering conversations, and anecdotal wisdom.
This translation from Sam Hamill and J. Seaton is joyful, witty, and a delight to contemplate, as any good rendition of the Chuang Tzu should be. Over the course of his career as a professional scholar and translator, Thomas Cleary has produced dozens of translations of traditional Taoist texts.
And the transmission of Taoism to the Western world owes much to Cleary for his decades of effort. This series collects his numerous translations into four extensive volumes. The first volume contains his full translation of the Tao Te Ching along with the Chuang-tzu , Wen-tzu , and others. Subsequent volumes go even deeper into the tradition and shed light on many centuries of Taoist development. Highly recommended for anyone looking to learn the heart of the tradition.
