What is Tao

Tao is the fundamental concept of Taoism.

In Chinese, it is written as 道, and can be literally translated as ‘the path’ or ‘the way’.

It is a very elusive concept, which is difficult to explain — especially when we have to do it in words alone. What we may say is that it is the ultimate principle of the universe, embodied in all existence.
