DetailsAvailable for the first time in a handy, easy-to-use size, here is the most accessible and authoritative modern English translation of the ancient Chinese classic.This new Vintage edition includes an introduction and notes by the well-known writer and scholar of philosophy and comparative religion, Jacob Needleman. Tao (the Way) is one of the most profound and influential of the world's spiritual traditions, and the Tao Te Ching (The book of the way and its virtue) has left its imprint on Far Eastern philosophy, art and literature for over two thousand years.This classic of meditative insight was an important influence on Buddhist thought. Its key tenet is wu-wei, naturalness and simplicity, a mystical path of spontaneity and noninterference that fosters individuality and spiritual freedom. Although Taoism has declined in importance as a formal religion, its spirit of harmony and peace not only permeates art and life in the East but also continues to animate New Age consciousness in the West. This high-quality, inexpensive edition of the authoritative Legge translation will prove invaluable seekers of enlightenment, students of Eastern religion and thought, and general readers.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Laozi or Lao Tzu and Lao-Tze was an ancient Chinese philosopher and writer.
