Lao Tzu

Tao Te Ching

The Tao Te Ching (also Dao De Jing or Daodejing) by Lao Tzu (also Laozi, Lao Tsu) is an ancient Chinese text from approximately the sixth century, and the foundation of the school of Taoism (or Daoism).

The book has had tremendous influence in shaping the philosophy of Taoism, as well as the Religious Taoism and Chinese Buddhism.

The book’s title may generally be translated as “The Great Book of the Way and Virtue” — with the concept of the Tao being ‘The Way’.
