Tao Te Ching
The book of the month is the “Tao Te Ching” (pronounced Dow Deh Jing) translation by Stephen Mitchell. It is purportedly written by a man called Lao Tzu of which very little is known in about the 6th or 5th century B.C.E. It is one of my favorite little books because of its simple yet elegant prose on the nature of reality and as a manual on the art of living. Personally, I look to the Tao daily for spiritual guidance and insight by simply thinking of a question and opening the book at random. The insights I receive are not only helpful on an external level but I feel help me to connect with the river of inner peace within me. I hope you enjoy its timeless message also.
