Lao Tzu: 道德經 dào dé jīng



N though she generally refers to the sage as a man whereas Mitchell states that since we are all potentially the Master since the Master is essentially us I felt it would be untrue to present a male archetype as other versions have ironically done Ironically because of all the great world religions the teaching of Lao tzu is by far the most femaleAs for my experience with this book I should revisit it in a few years The dynamics between opposites that say and don t say that affirm and deny that teach without speaking and act without doing it all starts to get a tad annoying after a while I wasn t able to identify with some notions naturally my skeptical disposition began to take control rather soon However The Tao Te Ching includes several useful concepts to improve our fleeting stay in this world Moreover many of those impressions are addressed to politicians In that regard this book should be reuired reading for every single one of themI close this review with some chapters according to the views of each translator 18On the decline of the great Tao There are humanity jen and righteousness i General comment The overall message of this chapter just as in preceding and subseuent chapters is that the unconscious state of nature is superior to the conscious state of virtue Consciousness marks a ack We are not aware of and do not pursue something until we have already become separated from it 30One who assists the ruler with Tao Does not overpower ch iang the world by military conuests Such affairs have a way of returning huan Where armies are stationed Briars and thorns grow After great campaigns Bad years are sure to follow The good person is resolute The Kite lwo only But dares not kan take the path of the strong ch iang Be resolute kuo yet do not boast ching Be resolute yet do not show off fa Be resolute yet do not be haughty Be resolute because you have no choice Be resolute yet do not overpower ch iang When things are full grown they age This is called not following Tao Not following Tao they perish early General commentWhile the preceding chapter serves as the basis of a theology of nature this chapter provides the rationale for a theology of peace It carries the theme of non action or non domination in the preceding chapter to international relations If humans are not supposed to dominate other creatures neither should they dominate fellow humans This chapter is a critiue of military power ch iang specifically against wars which are instruments of death 66Rivers and seas can be kings of the hundred valleys Because they are good at flowing downwards hsia Therefore they can be kings of the hundred valleys Thus if you desire to be above the people Your words must reach down hsia to themIf you desire toead the people Your person shen body must be behind themThus the sage is above Yet the people do not feel his weight He stays in front Yet the people do not suffer any harm Thus all gladly praise him untiringly pu yen Because he does not contend with any Therefore no one under heaven can contend with him General commentThis chapter on the relationship between the ruler and the people is directly connected with chapter 61 which is on the relationship among states The key concept is again hsia The Power of Place low or downward flowing In domestic affairs as well as in international relations the ruler is to imitate water by reaching downward to the people assisting in their own self unfolding without imposing himself on themAug 18 18 Also on my blog I shared the same chapters on each review This is an amazing I ve read many books out there and this is the best one Very enjoyable read I highly recommend it I bought this book at discounted price from here There are many translations of the Taoteching nearly every one of which is probably worth reading but this is my favorite version I can t attest to the accuracy of the translation but having read so many different translations of the same text I feelike in some strange way I have a grasp of the original as if a blank space the Chinese original has been given shape and definition by all the English versions surrounding it But anyway while I Thoughtful Interaction Design like the spare sensitivity of theanguage in this version what makes this version extra special are the added bonuses an engagingly detailed introduction exploring the A course in Game Theory life of Lao Tzu what amounts to an original thesis on the very meaning of tao and commentaries on specificines even specific words appended to each of the 81 entries that have been culled from centuries upon centuries of critical commentary by scholars and eccentric mystics alikeThere is recent scholarship that is making the argument that instead of meaning way or path which is usually taken to mean how we as people conduct ourselves in accordance with a mysterious spiritual principle that tao actually refers to the Moon and its various phases and paths in space with particular emphasis on the darkness of the new moon and its significance as potential in darkness The new moon hides its fullness The fullness is there in potential unspent I Topless Cellist like this There s something pleasingly primitive about it gimme that old time religion ie something real and tangibly mysterious but also something practical and spiritual a connector between eye and heart that through some subtle gravity guides our feet along a pathThe commentaries that follow each poem or entry are fascinating and just scratch the surface of what I understand is a vast accumulation of scholarship on this text The commentaries are often wildly contradictory and tangential obsessive to an anal nth degree but also at times wise in their own right These commentaries have been written by official scholars by mendicant monks and even one or two extreme eccentricsiving on the fringes of society unaffiliated with any institution At the back of the book are short biographies of each commentator which is fascinating reading in itself It all adds up to evidence that this is a iving book with enough clear and direct meaning to be perpetually valid and enough obscurity to be endlessly ponderedThe translator is an American who goes by the name Red Pine He s almost 70 now and has been a practicing Buddhist for years but in the wandering independent scholar Gary Snyder type style He s also translated the Diamond Sutra poems of Han Shan Cold Mountain and Stonehouse and some other Buddhist texts In every work of his I ve read there s serious scholarship in evidence but also a free spirit and independen. à nghiên cứu đã dịch và bình chú về cuốn Đạo Đức Kinh của Lão Tử Nhờ những cách hiểu và khám phá mới mẻ của mỗi nhà nghiên cứu mà nội dung uyển Đạo Đức Kinh ngày càng trở nên

T thinker with a uniue store of fresh air I m always reading this ittle book containing the essence of wisdom For years I ve read it again and again one chapter every morning This is by far my favorite translation of the Tao Te Ching I own a few others and they re all well and good but this one is the one I continually read from and refer to when people ask me about the TaoThe translation is well done it captures the nature of the text well and it flows fairly evenly It s not overly flowery or ornate it gives you the basics of what you need to understand the various entries and assist in understanding what Tao is ie the the Tao named Tao is not the great eternal TaoIt s a book that changed my Tax Progressivity and Income Inequality life I The Tao is always nameless Chapter 71Trying to narrow down the philosophy of the Tao Te Ching with Learning and Development limiting words is to violate its primordial essence How can one describe the Universe the natural order of things the incessant flowing from being to non being the circular unity of a reality traditionally mismatched in dualistic terms The Tao Te Ching doesn t provide answers because there needn t be uestions just the harmony of moulding to theandscape rather than trying to impose a particular shape on itThe Tao Te Ching is the route in itself the path to emptying the human mind of ambitions schemes and desires and allow it to be flooded with the smoothness of humility and the exhilarating iberation o Tao Te Ching Lao Tzu The Tao Te Ching also known by its pinyin romanization Dao De Jing is a Chinese classic text traditionally credited to the 6th century BC sage Laozi The text s authorship date of composition and date of compilation are debated The oldest excavated portion dates back to the ate 4th century BC but modern scholarship dates other parts of the text as having been written or at Mastering Gephi Network Visualization least compiledater than the earliest portions of the Zhuangzi The Tao Te Ching along with the Zhuangzi is a fundamental text for both philosophical and religious Taoism It also strongly influenced other schools of Chinese philosophy and religion including Legalism Confucianism and Buddhism which was The Canadian Regime largely interpreted through the use of Taoist words and concepts when it was originally introduced to China Many Chinese artists including poets painters calligraphers and gardeners have used the Tao Te Ching as a source of inspiration Its influence has spread widely outside East Asia and it is among the most translated works in worlditerature

services and the Eye in the Sky didn t say boo So it may seem strange that I m reviewing the Tao Te Ching the widely known and influential Taoist text written by Lao Tzu and poetically translated in this edition by Stephen Mitchell For me the Tao Te Ching is folk wisdom than religious treatise and is useful than a million sermonsWhere the Tao Te Ching parts company with religious attempts at morality such as the 10 Commandments is in its inclusiveness Seven of the 10 Commandments don t mention God and are sound advice designed to facilitate peaceful community relations respect your elders don t kill don t cheat on your spouse don t steal don t tell Testing Aircraft, Exploring Space lies and don tust after another s spouse or his belongings For me the tragedy of the Great List is that the three that top it serve only to divide the world into believers and nonbelievers regardless how closely you follow the ast seven if you don t believe in God you re not worth a fig In doing so the first three create division where the ast seven seek harmony With Taoism even if you don t believe in the Force ike nature of the Tao and in case there s any uestion I don t you can still consider yourself a TaoistTaoism seeks harmony by freeing the individual from the caustic effects of judgmental thinking desire and greed and its fulcrum is the concept of non action or iterally doing not doing Non action Mitchell writes in his introduction is not the act of doing nothing but instead is the purest form of action The game plays the game the poem writes the poem we can t tell the dancer from the dance This slim book is both a uick read and a Un Cadeau pour ma Femme long study Mitchell syrical rendering of the Tao Te Ching might read to some ike silly hippie clich s but there s to it than that Take chapter 9 a photocopy of which hung on my office corkboard for yearsFill your cup to the brim and it will spillKeep sharpening your knife and it will bluntChase after money and security and your heart will never unclenchCare about people s approval and you will be their prisonerYou can almost see the hacky sack and smell the patchouli But there s a truth to it that if grasped will change the way you thinkAs chapter 1 states The tao that can be told is not the eternal TaoThe name that can be named is not the eternal Name Analogy then plays an important role in understanding the Tao Te Ching and the reader has to do uite a bit of work the ong study part to fathom the book s richness Take chapter 11 in its entirety where non action is discussedWe join spokes together in a wheel but it is the center hole that makes the wagon moveWe shape clay into a pot but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we wantWe hammer wood for a house but it is the inner space that makes it Shadow Bound livableWe work with being but non being is what we useThere is to the book than philosophical abstraction In fact common sense pervades the Tao Te Ching Take theseines which discuss the roots of crime If you overvalue possessions people begin to steal chapter 2 and If you don t trust the people you make them untrustworthy chapter 17 Or these from chapter 38 which describe the toll of illusory thought When the Tao is Mapapansin Kaya? lost there is goodnessWhen goodness isost there is moralityWhen morality is Buntus Foclora lost there is ritualRitual is the husk of true faithThe beginning of chaosTherefore the Master concerns himself with the depths and not the surfaceWith the fruit and not the flowerHe has no will of his ownHe dwells in reality andets all illusions goI m telling you had I been born into Taoism I might actually believe in something The book that can be reviewed is not the constant bookThe review which reviews can be neither full of review nor Life at the End of thevTunnel lackingBut as the river changes course over seasons must the reviewer neither review nor not review but follow the constant revie.

forgottenGoodness and pity appearNotes the great Tao Jayata said to Vasubandu If you have nothing to ask for in your mind that state of mind is called the Tao goodness and pity appear When the Tao is forgotten people act according to rules not from the heart This goodness is as insecure as Job s and can be as self satisfied as Little Jack Horner s Whereas a good father has no intention of being good he just acts naturally 30Whoever relies on the Tao in governing mendoesn t try to force issues or defeat enemies by force of armsFor every force there is a counter forceViolence even well

Lao Tse Lao Tu Lao Tsu Laotze Laosi Lao Zi Laocius Lao Ce and other variations was a mystic philosopher of ancient China best known as the author of the Tao Te Ching often simply referred to as Laozi His association with the Tao Te Ching has led him to be traditionally considered the founder of Taoism pronounced as Daoism He is also revered as a deity in most religious forms of the Taoist religion which often refers to Laozi as Taishang Laojun or One of the Three Pure Ones Laozi translated literally from Chinese means old master or old one and is generally considered honorificAccording to Chinese tradition Laozi lived in the 6th century BCE Historians variously contend that Laozi is a synthesis of multiple historical figures that he is a mythical figure or that he actually lived in the 5th 4th century BCE concurrent with the Hundred Schools of Thought and Warring States Period As a result of being a a central figure in Chinese culture both nobility and common people claim Lao Tzu in their lineage
