Tao Teh King Or, The Tao And Its Characteristics
By Lao-Tze, Translated By James Legge
About This Book
The title means "The Classic of the Way and Virtue," or "The Way and
its Power." This long poem (or collection of poems or work of
philosophy and advice) is the basis of the set of beliefs that comprise
Taoism. Like the Analects of Confucius, the Tao-Teh King
has influenced every aspect of Chinese history and culture. But while
Confucianism addresses and governs social order, Taoism emphasizes
individual life and tranquility.
Attributed to the Chinese scholar Lao-Tzu (6th century B.C.) and codified
over 2,000 years ago, the Tao-Teh King contains between 5,227 and 5,722
words and is often called the 5,000 character classic.
