24 books of Laozi

The Tao Te Ching is fundamental to the Taoist school of Chinese philosophy and strongly influenced other schools, such as Legalism and Neo-­Confucianism. Written by Laozi -­600BC, this ancient book is also central in Chinese religion, not only for Taoism but Chinese Buddhism, which when first introduced into China was largely interpreted through the use of Taoist words and concepts. Many Chinese artists, including poets, painters, calligraphers, and even gardeners have used the Tao Te Ching as a source of inspiration. Its influence has also spread widely outside East Asia, aided by hundreds of translations into Western languages.

The Tao Te Ching, Daodejing, or Dao De Jing (道德經: 道 dào "way"; 德 dé "virtue"; 經 jīng "classic" or "book") also simply referred to as the Laozi, is a Chinese classic text. According to tradition, it was written around the 6th century BC by the sage Laozi (or Lao Tzu, "Old Master"), a record-­keeper at the Zhou Dynasty court, by whose name the text is known in China.

The “Daodejing” (“Tao Te Ching”) was originally compiled over 2500 years ago in what is now northwestern central China. This new translation of Laozi’s “Daodejing” attempts to present a fairly literal rendering of the short, ancient Classical Chinese text. The version of the “Daodejing” used here is the standard “received” text included in the young scholar Wang Bi’s third century commentary. The entire Classical Chinese text is presented line by line, from right to left, on pages facing the lines of English translation.

This translation differs from the dozens of previous translations (and hundreds of adaptations) of the “Daodejing” in that it does not project later cultural or religious beliefs back onto the text. It does not add words in order to explain away those portions of the text that reflect ideas or beliefs that are not compatible with a modern, “enlightened” worldview.
