Tao Te Ching (Paperback)
(This book cannot be returned.)
The Tao Te Ching, written by ancient Chinese philosopher Laozi around the 6th century BC, explores the fundamental principles of the universe and the nature of existence. Translated by James Legge, a Scottish sinologist, this edition offers an engaging version of Laozi's timeless wisdom. Legge was one of the first Westerners to study Chinese culture and history, and his translation of the Tao Te Ching is one of the most widely read and respected versions in the English language.
Laozi, also known as Lao Tzu, is considered one of the greatest philosophers in Chinese history. His teachings are the foundation of Taoism, one of the most important spiritual traditions in China. Laozi's work emphasizes the importance of living in harmony with nature and the universe, and the idea that true strength and power come from humility and simplicity. The Tao Te Ching is a collection of 81 verses that convey these ideas in a simple and profound way.
