Treasures of the Tao eBook

Treasures of the Tao eBook
Special Offer


Publisher: Tao Booklets

by Richard Bertschinger

This is a new translation of Laozi's Tao-te Ching (The Book of the Way and its Power) the foundation text of Taoism, along with two original commentaries, one popular and the other scholarly. The earliest was penned by the 'Old Man who Lived up the River' and represents the folk tradition of the book; the second is by the early philosopher Wangbi. The first is a guide to qigong or Taoist yoga, while the second is the earliest exposition of the Tao-te Ching's philosophy of 'being' and 'non-being'. These gentle philosophies of turning away from the world's troubles and deepening an inner life crystallise all that is best in the Chinese mind. They reveal an message of harmony, and naturalness in action, rejection of pretence and artificiality, and a simple life with regard to the environment. Both are newly rendered into English and placed directly after the original text in the traditional manner. There is a short note to each chapter describing its content and textual variations.
