Laotzu's Tao and wu-wei by Laozi( Book )

21 editions published between 1910 and 2018 in English and Chinese and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Tao Te Ching is a spiritual, inspirational work that guides us through life, helping us to live within each moment and find the beauty that is all around each of us. Simple, beautiful, and life changing. The Tao Te Ching is fundamental to the Taoist school of Chinese philosophy (Dàojia) and strongly influenced other schools, such as Legalism and Neo-Confucianism. This ancient book is also central in Chinese Buddhism, which when first introduced into China was largely interpreted through the use of Taoist words and concepts. Many Chinese artists, including poets, painters, calligraphers, and even gardeners have used the Tao Te Ching as a source of inspiration"--

Tao te ching : a book about the way and the power of the way by Laozi( )

27 editions published between 1922 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Red Pine notes in his introduction, I envisioned this book as a discussion between Lao-tzu and a group of people who have thought deeply about his text. What distinguishes this volume is its commentary: here as well are the voices of scores of poets, monks, recluses, adepts, scholars, and emperors. More than a translation, more than a book of poetry or religious teachings, this edition gathers the wisdom, thought, and individual voices of its readers across millennia.--Copper Canyon Press

The sayings of Lao Tzŭ by Laozi( )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Tao, which can be expressed in words, is not the eternal Tao; the name which can be uttered is not its eternal name. Without a name, it is the Beginning of Heaven and Earth; with a name, it is the Mother of all things. Only one who is eternally free from earthly passions can apprehend its spiritual essence; he who is ever clogged by passions can see no more than its outer form. These two things, the spiritual and the material, though we call them by different names, in their origin are one and the same. This sameness is a mystery-- the mystery of mysteries. It is the gate

500 Quotes of Lao Tsu for Meditation by Laozi( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lao Tsu, also known as Lao Tzu or Laozi, is an ancient Chinese philosopher and sage, and an absolutely central figure in Asiatic culture. He is known as the author of the Tao Te Ching or Daodejing and the founder of Taoism. In traditional China, Taoism is a way of living in harmony with the Tao, "way", "path", or "principle", something that is both the source of, and the force behind, everything that exists. Throughout history, Laozi's work has been embraced by various anti-authoritarian movements, because his style is designed to elicit critical thinking through ambiguousness. We have selected for you 500 of his most profound quotes, to guide you through meditation, and help you approach the Path as you delve into the Old Master's philosophy

A Chinese reading of the Daodejing : Wang Bi's commentary on the Laozi with critical text and translation by Rudolf G Wagner( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many of the brightest Chinese minds have used the form of the commentary to open the terse and poetic chapters of the Laozi to their readers and also to develop a philosophy of their own. None has been more sophisticated, philosophically probing, and influential in the endeavor than a young genius of the third century C.E., Wang Bi (226-249). In this book, Rudolf G. Wagner provides a full translation of the Laozi that extracts from Wang Bi's Commentary the manner in which he read the text, as well as a full translation of Wang Bi's Commentary and his essay on the "subtle pointers" of the Laozi. The result is a Chinese reading of the Laozi that will surprise and delight Western readers familiar with some of the many translations of the work."--Jacket
