Description:

Taoism is based upon a concept of the Tao, or Way, as the universal power through which all life flows. 'Tao Te Ching' offers a practical model by which both the individual and society can embody this belief, encouraging modesty and self-restraint as the true path to a harmonious existence.

Author bio:

Gia-Fu Feng was prominent as both an English translator (with his wife, Jane English) of Daoist classics and a Daoist teacher in the United States.

Lao Tzu, Chinese philosopher, was a native of Chu, a southern state during the Zhou dynasty. His birth and death dates are uncertain. He is considered to be the founder of Taoism. According to legend, Lao Tzu set out on a journey to leave China. At the border, he was asked by a border guard to record his teachings. These teachings were compiled into what we know as the Tao-te-Ching, translated as the Classic of the Way and Virtue.
