Wen-Tzu by Lao zi

Book Description

Lao-tzu, the legendary sage of ancient China, is traditionally considered to be the author of the "Tao Te Ching, "one of the most popular classics of world literature. Now Lao-tzu's further teachings on the Tao, or Way, are presented here in the first English translation of the Chinese text known as the "Wen-tzu." Although previously ignored by Western scholars, the "Wen-tzu" has long been revered by the Chinese as one of the great classics of ancient Taoism. In it, Lao-tzu shows that the cultivation of simplicity and spontaneity is essential to both the enlightened individual and the wise leader. This timeless work will appeal to a broad audience of contemporary readers who have come to consider Lao-tzu's "Tao Te Ching " a classic on the art of living.

Books By Author Lao zi

Daodejing by Lao zi Daodejing, Paperback (April 2016)

These 81 brief poems from the 5th century BCE make up a foundational text in world culture. Martyn Crucefix's superb new versions in English reflect - for the very first time - the radical fluidity of the original Chinese texts as well as placing the mysterious 'dark' feminine power at their heart.

Tao Te Ching by Lao zi Tao Te Ching, Paperback (August 1999)

In 1913, orientalist Leon Wieger translated the Tao-Te-Ching into French. For this edition Derek Bryce translated Wieger's French text into English. It offers commitment to both the original Chinese philosophies and Wieger's insights, as well as traditional commentaries.

Hua Hu Ching by Lao zi Hua Hu Ching, Paperback (April 1995)

This is one of the rarest yet most accessible of the Chinese wisdom texts, and a companion to Tao Te Ching. Most likely written in the middle of the first millennium BCE, it survived through oral transmission. It takes the form of 81 dialogues between the sage Lao Tzu and an unnamed prince of China.
