A classic Chinese text dating from the 6th century B.C., the "Book of the Way" consists of 81 short poems that unfold the spiritual nature of Taoism, one of the ancient Chinese religions. In describing the universal life force implicit in all things, this work shows readers a path that teaches contentment and balance. The simple language of Lao Tzu's manual on the art of living essentially encourages being humble, temperate, and considerate in the face of life's predicaments. The wisdom of being a part of the Tao leads to a serenity of spirit that improves all aspects of human life, from work to family, difficulties and joys. An essential for the meditation of Taoists for thousands of years, the "Tao Te Ching" is as beneficial and informative as it is enduring. This edition is drawn from the authoritative translation of James Legge and is interspersed with detailed critical analysis by the translator.

About the Author:

Sage and philosopher Lao Tzu was a record keeper in the Zhou dynasty court during the 6th century BC. In the religious form of Chinese Taoism, he is regarded as one of the three highest deities. James Legge (1815-97) was a Scottish sinologist, a Congregationalist missionary, and the first professor of Chinese at Oxford University. In addition to the Tao Te Ching, Legge is known for his translations of the Confucian Analects, as well as the works of philosophers Zhuanzi and Mencius. The Cleveland Museum of Art, established in 1913, holds one of the most comprehensive collections of Chinese art in the United States.
