Product Description

"Wonderful work and translation. I am growing spiritually from reading it!"
- Dr. Michael Saso, Professor Emeritus of Religion, University of Hawai'i, Ph.D Classical Chinese/Anthropology. Author of 15 books on Eastern religions, including, "Teachings of Taoist Master Chuang."

Central to Taoism, Zen Buddhism, and neo-Confucianism, the Tao Te Ching may be the single most influential Eastern philosophical text of the last 2300 years. Ho-Shang Kung (circa 100 AD) clarifies the language and metaphors of the Tao Te Ching, while offering a Sage's insights into how they may be applied to the cultivation of wisdom, vitality, longevity, harmonious leadership, and Taoist virtues such as naturalness, sincerity, and ease.

With an intimate understanding of the culture and history within Lao Tzu's verses, Ho-Shang Kung's commentary has played an indispensable role in deepening the understanding of the Tao Te Ching for mystics, philosophers, and scholars alike.

Guided by Ho-Shang Kung's commentary and linguistic analysis, Dan G. Reid provides a translation which is both eloquent, and exceptionally faithful to the Chinese text. With an audience of scholars and Taoist practitioners in mind, a Classical Chinese reading guide is provided, and the Chinese text appears alongside the commentary. Dan G. Reid's translation of the Tao Te Ching also appears separately for focused study.
