Book Description :

A Daoist classic that has had a profound influence on Chinese thought, the Laozi or Daodejing, evolved into its present form sometime around the third century BCE and continues to enjoy great popularity throughout East Asia and beyond. Philip J Ivanhoe's lucid and philosophically-minded interpretation and commentary offer fresh insights into this classic work. In the substantial introduction and numerous notes, Ivanhoe draws attention to the issues at play in the text, often relating them to contemporary philosophical discussions and directing the reader to related passages within the Daodejing and to other works of the period. The Language Appendix, unique to this edition, offers eight translations of the opening passage by well-known and influential scholars and explains, line-by-line, how each might have reached his particular interpretation.

Book Description :

The Dao De Jing is one of the richest, most suggestive, and most popular works of philosophy and literature. Composed in China between the sixth and fourth centuries B.C., its enigmatic verses have inspired artists, philosophers, poets, religious thinkers, and general readers past and present. This new translation captures the beauty and nuance of the original work. In addition, the extensive and accessible commentary by Moss Roberts sheds light on the work’s historical and philosophical contexts and shows how the Dao De Jing addresses topics of relevance to our own times, such as politics, statecraft, cosmology, aesthetics, and ethics.

Book Description :

A new version of the Dao that was 30 years in the making. It truly is an "easy to understand" text that is written in English, but retains the "tone" of the original Chinese text. It provides a blank page opposite each chapter for the reader to record their own thoughts and ideas. Having been written by a layman and not a scholar, it does not contain any academic analysis; it is solely the evaluation of one attempting to understand and live by the words of the "old master".

Book Description :

"so both thrive both discovering bliss real power is female it rises from beneath" These 81 brief poems from the 5th century BCE make up a foundational text in world culture. In elegant, simple yet elusive language, the Daodejing develops its vision of humankind s place in the world in personal, moral, social, political and cosmic terms. Martyn Crucefix s superb new versions in English reflect for the very first time the radical fluidity of the original Chinese texts as well as placing the mysterious dark feminine power at their heart. Laozi, the putative author, is said to have despaired of the world s venality and corruption, but he was persuaded to leave the Daodejing poems as a parting gift, as inspiration and as a moral and political handbook. Crucefix s versions reveal an astonishing empathy with what the poems have to say about good and evil, war and peace, government, language, poetry and the pedagogic process. When the true teacher emerges, no matter how detached, unimpressive, even muddled she may appear, Laozi assures us there are treasures beneath ."

Book Description :

The Laozi, Daodejing (also published as The Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching) is a new translation and commentary for 2015 and beyond. Unlike many other translations, this book's commentary invites the reader into the interpretive process. It provides the reader with a look into the visuals that make up key Chinese characters in order to assist the reader in understanding its practical philosophy of Realism. The 2500 year old Chinese text is not about rights and wrongs, nor is it about trying to change the world so that it suits you. It is about how we regard value and how this sense of value may, in turn, inform ourselves. It is about how adapting ourselves to the world as it exists may make the world a better place in which all can live. It might best be regarded as self-help philosophy.

Book Description :

2,500 years ago a little known government official in China wrote a book that has been translated more often than any other book in the world except the Bible. This book, the Daodejing (pronounced "Dow De Jing" and often referred to as just "The Dao"), is the basis of much of the Eastern world's philosophical and religious thought as well as Tai Chi and Kung Fu. It contains wisdom that pertains to daily life as well as the administration of government, but it is an entertaining one-night "read" (I'll bet you can't read it without smiling?!). It consists of 81 one-page chapters. It is one of those books that you will enjoy on your first reading, but you may reread time and time again, each time finding some new meaning. It makes a great gift, too. If you read the reviews of the various versions of the Dao on Amazon, you will find that many readers of the Dao have multiple copies. Add this book to the collection of anyone that enjoys an entertaining and thought-provoking book! It is also known as "Tao De Ching", "Dao Teh Jing", "Tao Teh Ching", and others. The ascribed original author was Lao Tzu (the more current spelling in pinyin Chinese is Laozi).

Book Description :

Challenges standard views of the origins of the Daodejing, revealing the work’s roots in a tradition of physical cultivation. Thomas Michael’s study of the early history of the Daodejing reveals that the work is grounded in a unique tradition of early Daoism, one unrelated to other early Chinese schools of thought and practice. The text is associated with a tradition of hermits committed to yangsheng, a particular practice of physical cultivation involving techniques of breath circulation in combination with specific bodily movements leading to a physical union with the Dao. Michael explores the ways in which the text systematically anchored these techniques to a Dao-centered worldview. Including a new translation of the Daodejing, In the Shadows of the Dao opens new approaches to understanding the early history of one of the world’s great religious texts and great religious traditions. “Michael’s work provides a fresh and innovative methodological approach to a well-known and much studied text. Unlike the vast majority of previous studies, which situate the Daodejing in an ahistorical philosophical realm divorced from ritual and practice, Michael’s analysis takes seriously the possibility that the text both contains and advocates for self-transformative practices. In addition, his translation, while not intended to be a stand-alone work, significantly contributes another important perspective. This excellent, groundbreaking book lays the foundation for a new round of vigorous debate and scholarly attention.” — Jeffrey Dippmann, coeditor of Riding the Wind with Liezi: New Perspectives on the Daoist Classic

Book Description :

Tao Te Ching translates very roughly as "the way of integrity". In its 81 verses it delivers a treatise on how to live in the world with goodness and integrity: an important kind of wisdom in a world where many people believe such a thing to be impossible. Taosim affirms that each human being is a reflection of the whole universe, a microcosm within the macrocosm, and that all of us live under the same cosmic laws of the Tao. The Taoist follows the path of non-action (Wu Wei), flowing with the constantly changing stream of life, and trying to live in universal harmony and balance. The easily assimiliated aphorisms in this great book are a continuous source of spiritual guidance and nourishment, and its insights on statesmanship are practical guides for our own time. Ralph Alan Dale's brilliant translation uniquely captures, as never before, the essential meaning of this profound text, and makes it entirely relevant to today's readers.

Book Description :

A new and attentively restored dual-language edition of the 6th-century B.C.E. Chinese Philosophical and Spiritual classic, presented in the celebrated translation of James Legge with the original text at its side. Through 81 transcendent topics, Laozi dispenses his accumulated knowledge and original philosophy of peace and harmony, and the virtues of simplicity. He introduced the doctrine of meekness conquering brutality and repaying injury with kindness to a consistently unforgiving world. And, perhaps most importantly, he introduced the idea that behaviour is a choice, wisdom coming not from learning, but being. Foundational to Taoism, and highly influential in the West for over two centuries, the Dao De Jing's legendary wisdom and sagacious inversion of the apparent is a must read for every student of traditional Eastern philosophy, religion, spirituality, and history.
