A Pocketful of Tao: Two Taoist Classics Complete In One Volume By Dwight Goddard & Henri Borel
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Of the ancient Chinese Sage Laotzu, founder of Taoism, "Father of Beat Zen" Dwight Goddard writes, "I want you to appreciate this wise and kindly old man, and come to love him. He was... More > perhaps the first of scholars (6th century B.C.) to have a vision of spiritual reality, and he tried so hard to explain it to others, only, in the end, to wander away into the Great Unknown in pathetic discouragement…" But his great work, the Tao Teh King (Tao Te Ching) lived beyond his personal disappearance to profoundly influence Chinese religion and cultural character. Through Taoism's marriage with Buddhism in the Chinese Cha'n and Japanese Zen traditions, Laotzu's vision has imprinted the spiritual understanding and practice of the entire world. Bringing two classic interpretations of his work together in one slim, portable volume, A POCKETFUL OF TAO is the ultimate hip-pocket companion for modern travelers of the Watercourse Way.< Less
