And Lao Tzu’s call in Chapter 63 for his disciples to do good to him who has done you an injury (p. 70) will similarly .

And Lao Tzu’s call in Chapter 63 for his disciples to do good to him who has done you an injury (p. 70) will similarly bring to mind Jesus’ call for his disciples to Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you (Luke 6:27-28).

The text's authorship, date of composition and date of compilation are debated

The text's authorship, date of composition and date of compilation are debated. The oldest excavated portion dates back to the late 4th century BC, but modern scholarship dates other parts of the text as having been written-or at least compiled-later than the earliest portions of the Zhuangzi.

From the book Tao Te Ching: The Taoism of Lao Tzu Explained. Preface Tao Te Ching, which is the major source of Taoism, has a clouded origin. My first meeting with the Tao Te Ching was in my late teens. Tao Te Ching, which is the major source of Taoism, has a clouded origin. It was composed no earlier than the 6th and no later than the 4th century BC. According to legend, its writer was Lao Tzu, a high official of the Chinese empire, who left his work and his country in dismay, fed up with the charade of government. He is said to have departed riding on a water buffalo.

The Tao Te Ching by Lao Tz. Lao-Tzu: Te-Tao Ching a New Translation Based on the Recently Discovered Ma-Wang-Tui Texts Tr. by Robert G. Henricks, 1989.

The Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu. 老子 : 道德經 Laozi : Daode jing The Daode jing is a short book of about 5,000 Chinese characters. It has 81 short chapters. The two silk books are part of the Cultural Relics from the Mawangdui Tombs collection at the Hunan Provincial Museum. Mawangdui Laozi A 老子甲 - Laozi jia The Hunan Provincial Museum notes, "This is called Version A of Book on Silk Lao Zi, because it was copied out in classical official script. The silk is partially damaged, with many Chinese characters missing.

J. Legge, Translator. Sacred Books of the East, Vol 39). 1. The Tao that can be trodden is not the enduring and unchanging Tao. The name that can be named is not the enduring and unchanging name. Conceived of as) having no name, it is the Originator of heaven and earth; (conceived of as) having a name, it is the Mother of all things.

New York, Ballantine Books, 1992. Includes Chinese characters for each chapter.

The Tao Te Ching (or Daodejing, in pinyin) is a classic Chinese Taoist text dating from at least the fourth century BC. According to tradition it has its origins even earlier, around the sixth century BC. The title may be translated. The title may be translated as Instruction regarding the Way of Virtue. The literary style is terse and often cryptic, so that multiple interpretations of the individual sections are often possible, but the essence of the work is clear, in communicating an approach to life which is in accord with the natural, and so conducive to spiritual tranquillity and resilience. Like the Homeric texts, the Tao Te Ching has been ascribed to a single author and to many.

The most translated book in the world, next to the Bible, is the Tao Te Ching. Great wisdom can be found on every page. Lao Tzu is believed to have written the text in China in the sixth century BCE. It forms the basis for Taoism, one of the world's great wisdom traditions. In addition to being considered one of the best books ever written, it is also one of the easiest to read. One of the few women to offer a translation is Mears, who seems to add a more intuitive or sensitive touch. She has created a beautifully rendered translation that deserves to be shared and preserved for generations to come.

I had no idea what to expect of this book when It arrived. I turned it over in my hands and it was clearly very short in length, so I decided to just read a few pages while I finished my morning coffee.

One and a half hours later I had finished the book entirely, along with my coffee, and I immediately knew upon completion that I would read this book many, many more times in my life.

It was a highly profound, dare I say life changing read that dramatically impacted my perspective towards my own happiness and how I interact with others. Written as a collection of very short, almost poem-like chapters, often each occupying less than a single page, this book is a masterfully crafted guide to find real happiness and fulfillment in your life. It is a tome that empowers you, humbles you, and leads you around the pitfalls that so many humans fall into throughout their lives.

It is not a modern self help book with life-hacks, habit forming tips, or other such articulations, but rather a fundamental, deep, and moving look at what makes up a fulfilling life.

If you are someone who has discovered mindfulness, explores meditation, or ponders philosophy, then this book is, without question, a must-read.

And if you are more of a go-getter. A driven entrepreneurial type who is looking more or straightforward advice on building your business, achieving goals and finding ‘success’, then I encourage you more-so than anyone else to pick this book up.

It has helped me make difficult business decisions, cut through the unimportant details and roadblocks, optimize my time, and improve my relations with my clients and really everyone else in my life for that matter. It is a book for the true winners, who understand that karma is practical, and that compassion is the path to real success.

It is a book that I will cherish for the rest of my life, and I feel indebted to the author and translator for bringing its wisdom into the world.

I first read the Tao Te Ching in college. Somewhere along the line I lost that copy so I decided to pick up this one (especially since it had such high reviews). This copy seemed much different than the one I read years back. And I am not just talking about the author's choice to use female pronouns as well as male pronouns in his version (incidentally - how close can one get to awareness of Tao if one allows oneself to get hung up on seeing "He" rather than "She" in the teachings?).
In one portion of this "tao de ching: A New English Version" ("Version" is the key word) the author chooses to translate "When the Tao is absent in a country,/ war horses are bred on the borders" to "When a country goes counter to the Tao, Warheads are stockpiled outside the cities". This author has written his "modernized" version of the Tao Te Ching and he claims to have been open in this fact, supposedly by him using the terms "A New English Version". When one reads further one in the notes you see the author admitting he does not even know Chinese (so his interpretation of the Tao is from other translations - and how he thinks the lines should read for poetics sake, or P.C. sake, etc).
At first I thought I would not write a review on this book. But when seeing the author admit to what I had suspected it made me feel like I really got ripped off. If you are looking for a translation of the Tao Te Ching do not get this author's book. The author respects the Tao but this is not the real deal. I will be purposefully losing this book and looking for a better translation.

As with so many books, we endure the scholarly and erudite reviewers who claim to know which text and translation is the most recondite, the most accurate, the most true to the original. I don't know about all that. I know Lao Tsu was so important to Asian culture and life, and I know this book makes me feel whole again with each reading. I slow down, and his true words align the iron filings in my heart.

Let the educated debaters go on with their "Ten thousand things" arguing about translations and meanings. They miss the point. Get this book, make some tea, turn of the incessant rattlings in your brain and the screens in your home and relax to ancient wisdom that has influenced millions of hearts and minds for thousands of years...

From the book: "Empty your mind of all thoughts. Let your heart be at peace. Watch the turmoil of beings, but contemplate their return. Each separate being in the universe returns to the common source. Returning to the source is serenity. If you don’t realize the source, you stumble in confusion and sorrow. When you realize where you come from, you naturally become tolerant...." I could select any page or any line from this work by Lao Tzu and translated by Stephen Mitchell and find insight. If any of these words in this review or other reviews or in previewing this book has touched you you may want to purchase this work :-)
