Translated by Gia-Fu Feng and Jane English, 107 Pages, Paperback.
Tao Te Ching is a book whose appeal is as broad as its meanings deep. It speaks to each of us at our own level of understanding, while inviting us to search for levels of insight and experience that are not yet within our comprehension. To read it is not only to see ourselves as we are but to glimpse a greatness extending far beyond our knowledge of ourselves and the universe we live in.
Book deals with what is permanent in us. It speaks of possible inner greatness and an equally possible inner failure, which are both indelibly written into our very structure as human beings. Under its gaze, we are not "American" or "Chines" or "European". We are that being man, uniquely called to occupy a precise place in the cosmic order , no matter where or in what era we live.
