  • დაო დე ძინი By Lao Tzu Epigrammatic, enigmatic, intensely poetic, the Tao Te Ching is the mystical, spiritual soul of Taoism, one of the three great religions along with Confucianism and Buddhism of ancient China The Tao is usually translated as the way or the path, but it is better understood as a universal life force that flows around and through all things The Tao Te Ching teaches usEpigrammatic, enigmatic, intensely poetic, the Tao Te Ching is the mystical, spiritual soul of Taoism, one of the three great religions along with Confucianism and Buddhism of ancient China The Tao is usually translated as the way or the path, but it is better understood as a universal life force that flows around and through all things The Tao Te Ching teaches us that happiness is found in becoming one with the Tao, which enables us to live in harmony, balance, and peace and to develop the virtues of humility, moderation, and compassion.Taoism emphasizes non dualistic thinking and the interconnectedness of all life The dualistic thinker looks at the world and sees differences, comparisons, and contrasts The Taoist sage knows that all such judgments depend on the person making them, not on the reality of what is being judged Unlike theistic God centered religions, Taoism does not involve prayer to a deity Instead, Taoists meditate on the wisdom in the Tao Te Ching, seeking to unravel the paradoxes and understand the complexities that lie within its simple language.

      The book that can be reviewed is not the constant book.The review which reviews can be neither full of review nor lacking.But as the river changes course over seasons must the reviewer neither review nor not review, but follow the constant review.

      I m an unbeliever and have been since the first time I played hooky from Sunday services and the Eye in the Sky didn t say boo So it may seem strange that I m reviewing the Tao Te Ching, the widely known and influential Taoist text, written by Lao Tzu and poetically translated in this edition by Stephen Mitchell For me, the Tao Te Ching is folk wisdom than religious treatise and is useful than a million sermons.Where the Tao Te Ching parts company with religious attempts at morality such as th [...]

      The Tao is always nameless Chapter 71 Trying to narrow down the philosophy of the Tao Te Ching with limiting words is to violate its primordial essence How can one describe the Universe, the natural order of things, the incessant flowing from being to non being, the circular unity of a reality traditionally mismatched in dualistic terms The Tao Te Ching doesn t provide answers because there needn t be questions, just the harmony of moulding to the landscape rather than trying to impose a particu [...]

      This is, by far, my favorite translation of the Tao Te Ching I own a few others and they re all well and good, but this one is the one I continually read from and refer to when people ask me about the Tao.The translation is well done, it captures the nature of the text well, and it flows fairly evenly It s not overly flowery or ornate, it gives you the basics of what you need to understand the various entries and assist in understanding what Tao is i.e the the Tao named Tao is not the great, ete [...]

      There are many translations of the Taoteching, nearly every one of which is probably worth reading, but this is my favorite version I can t attest to the accuracy of the translation, but having read so many different translations of the same text I feel like in some strange way I have a grasp of the original as if a blank space the Chinese original has been given shape and definition by all the English versions surrounding it But anyway while I like the spare sensitivity of the language in this [...]

      I m always reading this little book containing the essence of wisdom For years I ve read it again and again, one chapter every morning.

    8. Heidi Parton on said:

      This version irritates me a lot, largely because of Stephen Mitchell s arrogance in writing it I ll go into that in a bit This is not a translation which Mitchell was at least gracious enough to make clear in the back of the book it s a translation of various translations The problem with this is that a translation of a translation turns out the same way that a copy of a copy does while some of the original words and phrases are identifiable, there s a lot that s lost or skewed.For example, here [...]

      review after rereading This book s contents and history have both a sense of vagueness, but not in a bad way, in my opinion It s somewhat uncertain when it was written circa 4th 3rd century BC , the author s life details are largely invented, and the existence of the author is not quite certain either Lao Tzu is just his title, and also it s not known if the text is by one author, or a group of authors worked over some years It was first translated in the late 1700s, and the oldes existing copy [...]

    12. James on said:

      The Tao Te Ching is a book that cannot be read directly Unfortunately, I have little experience reading books indirectly, so I found this a difficult book to read, end even difficult to discern what was being said by the author A friend told me that he thought Heraclitus, the Greek pre Socratic philosopher, was somewhat like Lao Tzu Heraclitus said you can t step in the same river twice He believed that reality was a flux composed of a unity of opposites I suppose it is possible to consider Lao [...]

    13. Jeremy on said:

      This has got to be one of the most perennially beguiling, elliptical things ever written And it seems all the mysterious to me because so much of it is couched as this extremely practical, almost Machiavellian political advice Having been schooled entirely in the western intellectual tradition, with its notions of hierarchy, dualism and progression historical, socio cultural or otherwise , this was a complete mind fuck to me It sort of reminds me of Heidegger, with those really crazy, cyclical [...]

      Interesting in that round about way, the way ambiguous wordplay in poetry tend to be Overall though it couldn t hold my attention for long I had to stop and restart a page several times because my mind wandered It had nothing to do with the content of the writing, but rather the soothing rhythmic beat that made it easy for me to not focus Half the time I didn t even realized I was doing it until I reached a photo page This book might be better as an audio That soothing rhythmic beat would be eve [...]

      This version of the Dao De Jing, translated by Richard John Lynn, is highly recommended to those who are not looking for the touchy feely Laozi Rather it is a translation for those interested in ancient Chinese thought A wonderful translation.The Dao De Jing was probably written, by author or authors unknown, in the fourth century B.C.E and is primarily addressed to the ruler who would be a sage king and is mainly concerned with achieving the good society through harmony with nature This version [...]

      It is by being alive to difficulty that one can avoid it.As much as I wished to write a review for Tao Te Ching, I d abandoned the prospect of writing a review a couple of days ago Too many changes over the past few days that I couldn t summon the will to write as I had intended to To bring a little peace, I opened my journal to write and my eyes fell to the last line I d written, the line I ve quoted from Tao Te Ching, and it almost magically assuaged the tremors of my mind Whether Lao Tzu was [...]

    18. Evan on said:

      The description of this book is wrong Like Stephen Mitchell, acclaimed author and poet Ursula K Le Guin has attempted a nonliteral, poetic rendition of the Tao Te Ching It s nothing like Mitchell s pretty but totally opaque translation LeGuin gives you readable ideas, arguments in poetry, a philosophy to ponder Of all the translations I have encountered, this is the only one that gives you a point of entry into the rich treasury of ideas in the Tao Te Ching.

      An ode to apathy as a means of utopia If people are simple and cannot think and the rulers are good then the empire will work Except this would be the death of humanity s constant evolution and revolution I could literally see this being handed out in Orwell s Oceania, that s how far off I find this philosophy.

    21. Alex on said:

      To a Westerner, the Tao Te Ching presents another perspective for understanding meaning and effectiveness For example, the Tao Te Ching shows how movement towards progress creates movement against progress, Do not exalt the worthy, and the people will not compete Do not display objects of desire, and the people s minds will not be disturbed Therefore the ordering of the sage empties their minds, fills their bellies and causes the wise ones not to dare to act He does nothing, and there is nothing [...]

      Profound, Reflection provoking piece of ancient text, studded with natural imagery and lyricism The message has lots of similarities with the Gita Some parts were obscure and contradicting though, so planning to read a guidance text soon.

      Ancient poems contain numerous interesting things, pleasure of silent air coolness of still water beauty of trees perfume of blossom riches of emotion and the most important thing, brightness of wisdom What does appear to the readers depends on their ways of interpretation It is, in my opinion, the law of philosophy.Tao Te Ching is not good for ones impatient and unimaginative Short and complex, but sound like mad poems might bore you easily I don t advise you using it for studying in classes, e [...]

      If I was allowed to only read one book for the rest of my life then it would be the Tao Te Ching by Laozi I read it at the right time in my life courtesy of a good friend s timely recommendation I find myself returning to it whenever I hit my deep and meaningful mode It s the original anarchist text and is based on principles rather than dogma Everyone should study this simple yet complex philosophy at least once in their lifetime.
