Publisher's Summary

If you have not encountered Chuang Tzu before, prepare yourself for a treat. He was the sage who stood apart from all others in Chinese history. He was a unique presence, a great mind like no one before or since. Chuang Tzu quickly distinguished himself and became well known for his deep understanding and sense of humor. His mastery was such that he could explain the Tao with simple stories, and his humor was such that he could see the joy in ordinary things. He taught his students about "carefree wandering" - the path of moving through life with a free and happy heart, regardless of how turbulent the journey might be. It is time for modern listeners to join in on the fun.

Chuang Tzu's wisdom is not just for Eastern culture but for all of humanity. We may not have the instability or the clash of massive armies indicative of Chuang Tzu's time, but we have a lot of stress and tension in our modern world. Many of us find ourselves fighting little battles on the personal front just to get through the day. We can benefit greatly from Chuang Tzu's teachings. These parables are presented throughout this audiobook and juxtaposed with the charming and intelligent prose of modern-day Taoist teacher and author Derek Lin. Together, Chuang Tzu and Lin will present you with simple lessons that will have a lasting impact on your life.

Critic Reviews

"A practical, systematic approach to the ancient and time-honored spiritual learning process. Using the same format that made The Tao of Daily Life a breakout Eastern wisdom best seller, Lin draws on the power of Taoist stories to illustrate important keys, or lessons." (Taoism)

Recommendation

I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this book. though my Affinity is for Eastern philosophy especially Chinese. there are some very good anecdotes and essays to ponder on. I will be sitting down to re-listen with pen and paper so I can paraphrase and further comprehended this fantastic material.

Chuang Tzu's Stories

Chuang Tzu's stories are cryptic messages, metaphors about material and spiiritual encounters, and how we should deal with them appropriately. These lessons when refined, in my opinion, with Buddhism will bring immediate elevation on the material and spiritual planes. Do yourself a favor and listen deeply.
