Abstract:

"The Lieh-tzu is a collection of stories and philosophical musings of a sage of the same name who lived around the fourth century BCE. The subjects of Leih-tzu's teachings range from the origin and purpose of life, the Taoist view of reality, the nature of enlightenment to questions about training the body and mind, communication and understanding, and the importance of personal freedom. This distinctive translation presents Leih-tzu as a friendly, initmate companion speaking directly to the reader in a contemporary voice about life and death, fortune and misfortunate, grain and loss, and questions and problems that we want to solve in our everyday lives. Why do things run smoothly for some people and not for others? How can we deal with stress and anxiety in our daily lives? How can we learn more effectively? What brings happiness? Why are there so many problems in our world? By providing answers to these practical questions, Leih-tzu builds the foundations that are necessary for the higher levels of Taoist training."--cover, page 4.
