The Tao Te Ching

Lao Tzu

Overview

The great master Lao Tzu's teachings have stood the test of time. He invented Taoism in the 6th century BCE which has been passed on to generations. The Tao Te Ching contains his core lessons, and it has been translated into many languages across the globe.

Taoism philosophy is based on three pillars: simplicity, patience, and compassion. Lao Tzu said that these three principles are our greatest treasures. He further explained that by being simple in actions and in thoughts, you return to the source of being. Through patience with both friends and enemies, you accord with the way things are. And by being compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world.
