Tao Te Ching

Tao Te Ching Video

Legend has it that Lao Tzu was the keeper of the archives of the imperial court of China. Saddened and disillusioned at life and humanity, and that people were unable to follow the path of goodness, he left his position in the court.

It was in that renunciation that he wrote down his spiritual teachings and thus the Tao Te Ching – “The Way and It’s Power” was created.

“At the center of your being you have the answer, you know who you are and you know what you want!” -Lao Tzu

According to tradition, the work of the Tao Te Ching originates in the 4th century BC, but recent discoveries showed that it is no early than the 4th or 3rd century. The oldest existing copy is from 206 or 195 BC.

“Lao Tzu would have composed this work by the request of Yin Hsi, the Guardian of the Mountain Pass, while he began his wandering towards west.
It consists of 81 short chapters among which 37 form the first part, the Book of the Way (tao), and the next 44 form the Book of Te.
Its division in chapters is considered to be the result of the remarks of mysterious Heschang Gong (Han dynasty).” Source: taopage.com
