Tao Te Ching

Tao Te Ching

The Wisest Book Ever Written...
Complete on Audio...The Entire 81 Chapters (and Introduction to) Stephen Mitchell's exquisite new tradition of Lao-tzu's Tao Te Ching, or Book of the Way -- the classic manual on the art of living revered as one of the wonders of the world. Dating from the 6th century B.C., the Tao Te Ching look at the basic predicament of being alive, giving advice that imparts balance and perspective -- serene and generous spirit.

The Tao is about wisdom in action. It teaches how to work for the good with the effortless skill that comes from being in accord with the Tao (the basic principle of the universe) and applies equally to good government and sexual love, to childbearing, business and ecology.
