Lao Tzu & Tao Te Ching

 

Tao Teh Ching, or Dao De Ching (道德经), is the foremost text of Taoism, thought to be written by Lao Tsu between 6th and 4th century BC in ancient China. It is also known as Lao Tzu.

Tao Te Ching has transcended historical and cultural confines. It is timeless and universal! In China, it has been widely read by people over the centuries, from the ordinary folks, scholars to politicians; and exerted tremendous influence on the ways of life there; including the arts, from writing, painting and calligraphy to landscaping.

Since its introduction in the late 19th century, the work has been widely read in the West as well. It is believed to be the most translated work after Bible.
