This is a translation that follows the middle path, bypassing both the awkward rigidity of more formal translations as well as others that, by attempting to adapt for modern audiences, stray so far from Lao Tzu's words that they fail to convey the subtleties of the original text. It is not necessary to be flamboyant to be accessible, nor is it necessary to be pedantic to reveal truth. Lao Tzu expressed profound complexities using the simplest words and images. This translation attempts to do no less in bringing his work to modern, english-­speaking readers.

The Tao Te Ching is one of the most translated books in history, however, one cannot say there is such thing as a best translation for this text since some are more of an interpretation than a translation.

To better understand the concept it teaches, and for easy comparison, this book presents for each of the eighty-­one chapters of the Tao Te Ching, six side-­by-­side classic translations by:

- Dwight Goddard and Henri Borel (1919)
- Walter Gorn Old (1904)
- James Legge (1891)
- Isabella Mears (1916)
- C. Spurgeon Medhurst (1905)
- Ch’u Ta-­Kao (1904)

The book also presents twenty-­one beautiful traditional Chinese paintings to illustrate this classic text of the Chinese philosophy.

The founder of Taoism is Laozi (also spelled Lao-­Tzu), whose literal translation means "ancient child.­" Very little is known about Laozi's life. What we do know is that his birth name was Li Erh, and that he was a native of the southern feudal state of Chu. As an adult, he held a minor government post as a librarian in the imperial archives. At some point he relinquished this post - presumably to engage more deeply with his spiritual path.

As legend has it, Laozi underwent a profound spiritual awakening, and then traveled to the western frontier, where he disappeared forever, into the land of the Immortals. The last person that he encountered was a gatekeeper, named Wen-­Tzu, who requested that Laozi offer to him (and all of humanity) the essence of the wisdom that had been revealed to him.

In response to this request, Laozi dictated what was to become known as the Daode Jing (also spelled Tao-­Te-­Ching). Along with the Zhuangzi (Chuang-­Tzu) and the Liehzi (Lieh-­Tzu), the 5,­000 . . .

The Tao Te Ching is one of the world's oldest and most profound pieces of literature. Written around 2,­500 years ago by the enigmatic Lao Tzu, its wisdom is timeless and its message just as relevant today. The text, presented here in its entirety with additional commentary on all 81 chapters, is both subtle and expansive. Lao Tzu explores the workings of the cosmos and the natural world, reflecting on the origin and essential nature of mankind. He offers us a better way of living: one that's free of rigid belief systems, dogma, conflict and the stress and strain of perpetual craving and striving that characterises so many people's lives.

The Tao Te Ching urges us to live in harmony with the natural flow of life. Tao literally means ‘the way’, and throughout the text Lao Tzu draws parallels between the Tao and the effortless flow of nature. As one verse states: "I drift like a wave on the ocean. I blow as aimless as the wind.­" More than just poetic words; they encapsulate the . . .
