Dao De JingAudiobook CD - 2003
Composed more than 2,000 years ago, the Dao de Jing (Tao Te Ching) set forth an alternative vision of reality in a world torn apart by violence and betrayal. Second only to the Bible, this timeless classic is one of the world's most revered inspirational books. Daoism advocates a full understanding of the wonders hidden in the ordinary. Now in this luminous new translation, based on recently discovered ancient bamboo scrolls, Chinese scholars Ames and Hall bring the timeless wisdom of the Dao de Jing into our contemporary world. Eschewing philosophical dogma, the Dao de Jing sets forth a series of maxims that outline a new perspective on reality and invites listeners to embark on a regimen of self-transformation--the attainment of personal excellence that flows from the world and back into it.
