Publisher's Summary

Achieve harmony and balance with the ancient wisdom of the Tao Te Ching!

The Tao Te Ching, also known as The Tao and Its Characteristics, is an ancient spiritual book of expressions and aphorisms on the mysterious nature of the "tao" - a mysterious, force-like principle of the universe which emphasizes the discipline and philosophy of "non-action".

The underlying principles of the Tao Te Ching includes strength tempered with humility and self-restraint for efficient, focused participation in the harmonious flow of life. Includes subliminal period musical soundscape for enhanced listening experience!

Many artists and business people, including poets, painters, actors, CEOs, public speakers, and even social media influencers, have used the the Tao Te Ching as a source of inspiration. Spiritual yet practical, the book of the Tao has been inspiring seekers all the world over for centuries!

The Tao Te Ching had a profound impact on other schools of Chinese philosophy and religion, including Confucianism and Buddhism. Its influence has spread widely outside Asia, and the book is now among the most translated works in world literature to date.

A Chinese classic text traditionally credited to the sixth-century BC sage Laozi (Lao Tzu), the text's authorship, date of composition, and date of compilation are debated to this day, as is the identity of the poet-philosopher himself.

Beautiful philosophy with a calming presentation

Performed in a precise and pleasant manner complete with the faint sound of Classical Chinese music in the background which helps create an ambient meditation space
