Description
Taoism is a religious tradition that has taken many forms, including philosophical speculation, esoteric rituals, and disciplines of personal cultivation. At the heart of this diverse array is the Tao, or Way—the source of all creation and the inexorable pattern of change by which the universe comes into being. This book introduces the key themes of Taoism, including the life of its founding sage Laozi and his teachings, the influential texts of the Tao Te Ching and Zhuangzi, the concept of wu wei (noninterference), the cultivation of simplicity and detachment, the attainment of harmony, and the quest for immortality. It is a succinct, accessible survey, compact and easily portable yet beautifully bound and printed, with color photos and reproductions throughout and heavy paper covers.
