Teachings of the Tao: Readings from the Taoist Spiritual Tradition

Eva Wong


"The Tao that may be spoken of isn't the genuine Way," reads a well-known line from the Tao-te-ching. yet even if the Tao can't be defined by way of phrases, phrases can let us seize a fleeting glimpse of that mysterious strength of the universe that's the resource of existence. The readings during this booklet are a beginner's entrée into the colossal treasury of writings from the sacred chinese language culture, which includes unique translations of excerpts from the Taoist canon. short introductions and notes at the translation accompany the choices from the classics; books of devotional and mystical Taoism; texts of inner alchemy; tales of Taoist immortals, magicians, and sorcerers; moral tracts; chants and rituals; and teachings on meditation and strategies of longevity.
