TAO TE CHING — of Lao Tzu, An Understanding— by Roshi Bob

Image_tao_chinese_characterThey say Lao-tzu lived sometime between 551-479 BCE. Nothing more conclusive can be said about this. Little is known about him, and some scholars even suggest he may have been a composite of chinese writers of the period whose work was collected under one name. It’s all very murky.
Translator, Stephen Mitchell says, “…all the information that has come down to us is highly suspect.”

Lao Tzu left no trace other than this book. But for someone who may or may not have existed, he’s made a lasting impression. Mitchell even calls his book, “… one of the wonders of the world.”
