"TAO-TE-CHING: The Way of Virtue in Leadership and Life," is a uniquely merged rendering of Taoism's classic, sacred text. Based upon five respected translations dating from 1944 through 2003, poet and theologian John Ross, Jr. has re-focused his own poetic version upon Taoism's intrinsic virtues critical for successful contemporary leadership. By preserving the deep wisdom natural to Lao-Tzu's ancient text, Ross has not only upheld the academic legacy and literary contributions of those translations preceding his, but also provides five appendices of helpful notes, theological scholarship, and reflective commentary. Each of the 81 chapters endeavors to instruct the reader toward acquiring a non-aggressive attitude toward all forms of leadership. For parents, educators, government officials, military leaders, clergy; and especially for those in today's business world, this new American version is one greatly welcomed. As you surrender to the principles of the Tao, may you embrace the spiritual invitation offered by the Reverend Gail Tapscott in her FORWARD to this inspiring book, one which reminds each of us that: "...as we assimilate and put the teachings of the Tao-Te-Ching and other Taoist wisdom to work in our personal, professional and spiritual life, we must all produce our own version in the end." In this comprehensive volume, Reverend Tapscott also offers a genuine and enlightening personal journey, which details her early encounters with Taoist principles beginning way back in the the nineteen sixties; and extending to this very decade. In her minsistry as a Harvard trained theologian, college professor, and decades-long minister in the Unitarian Universalist tradition, she offers the reader practical insights highlighting the features of this unique version of Lao-Tzu´s ancient text. Her commentary and theological insights serve as a spiritual guide to those who may be uninitiated in how to incorporate Taoist principles and teachings into their own busy ´digital-driven´ lifestyles. This book is a must for those interested in contemporary spirituality, the relationship of Taoism to the world´s great religions, Asian philosophy, the writings of Confucius, or simply Taoist teachings in general.

(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed) Written during the golden age of Chinese philosophy, and composed partly in prose and partly in verse, the "Tao Te Ching" is surely the most terse and economical of the world's great religious texts. In a series of short, profound chapters it elucidates the idea of the Tao, or the Way-an idea that in its ethical, practical, and spiritual dimensions has become essential to the life of China's enormously powerful civilization. In the process of this elucidation, Lao-tzu both clarifies and deepens those central religious mysteries around which our life on earth revolves. Translation of the Ma Wang Tui Manuscripts by D. C. Lau

Walking the Way affirms that, like yin and yang, the flowing spontaneity of Tao and the precise simplicity of Zen find perfect balance with one another. Robert Meikyo Rosenbaum brings the two traditions together in a unique presentation that elicits Zen insights from his fresh interpretation of verses from the Taoist classic, the Tao Te Ching. Personal anecdotes illustrate the dynamic potential of Rosenbaum's approach, skillfully revealing Zen within the Tao and the Tao of Zen. Not only does the author reveal the elegance of each tradition, he shows how their interrelatedness does, in fact, have import on our meditative practices and on our day-to-day lives. Parenting, meditating, dealing with setbacks and illnesses--Walking the Way shows us how to live well in the midst of many complex demands, finding harmony and equilibrium between honing in and letting go, balance between being ourselves and selflessly serving others.

A VISUAL INTERPRETATION. A book to illustrate the depth, subtlety and richness of the language and philosophy by explaining the visuals provided by key Chinese characters and the pictograms that precede them. Even if a translation appears fairly straightforward, all interpretation is subjective; it must be. Just as every translator interprets, every reader brings his or her abilities to understanding (interpreting) what they read. So it is, will be, and always has been, you will interpret what I have interpreted. Valuing this tendency rather than fighting that which is natural, I intend to offer up ways of seeing the text: Together we will re-view the text through its images rather than hearing only the words as traditionally translated.

Lao Zi (also Lao-Tzu or Lao-Tze) was an ancient Chinese philosopher and writer. His book, Dao De Jing (or Tao Te Ching), has been in circulation for more than 2,500 years. There are many versions and more than one thousand annotations, yet most readers still find it difficult to understand, let alone apply in daily life. Thus Dao De Jing is often misunderstood and regarded as containing mystical teachings disconnected from reality. In Mysteries of Dao De Jing (Tao Te Ching) Revealed, author Dr. Guo Yong Jin dismisses many myths about this great work, including its link to Taoism (a religion founded six hundred years after Lao Zi). Shedding the mystical and surreal, he brings clarity to the teachings by drawing on Lao Zi’s source of inspiration—nature. In this way, Dr. Guo distinguishes his interpretation of Dao De Jing from those before him. The typical interpretation focuses on the semantics of Lao Zi’s written word; Dr. Guo, however, returns to the roots of Dao De Jing, using simple observations of nature to clarify the text. Dao De Jing lays bare the truths and realities of life and the universe. It explains the origins of life and the principles upon which the universe operates. Though much of Dao De Jing is mirrored in science and psychology, the ancient text offers an even deeper understanding. It is neither superstitious nor religious, nor is it a personal philosophy. Dao De Jing is simply wisdom in its essence.

'This is an extraordinary book, enlightening and insightful in personal and social realms. Many readers will value it as a work of art, others because of the new meaning it gives to their lives. Dr. Dale's work is, in fact, a treasure for today and for the future.' Milton Schwebel, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Psychology, Professional Psychology, Rutgers. The late Ralph Alan Dale translates Tao as the Great Integrity, that is the return to holism, honesty and creativity; our harmony with each other, with the environment and indeed with ourselves. We are perhaps the first generation in the 2500 years since this inspirational book was written, to fully appreciate the words and their message. It resonates with our 21st century hopes, dreams and new capacities as though Lao Tzu had written this remarkable book only for us. This book is presented beautifully, with stunning, atmospheric photographs printed in black and silver to enhance the verses and stimulate the imagination of the reader. A classic work, and a beautiful volume to own and give.
