Description


Written more than two thousand years ago, the "Tao Teh Ching, " or "The Classic of the Way and Its Virtue," has probably had a greater influence on Asian thought that any other single book. It is also one of the true classics of world literature.
Traditionally attributed to the near-legendary "Old Master," Lao Tzu, the "Tao Teh Ching " teaches that the qualities of the enlightened sage or ideal ruler are identical with those of the perfected individual. Today, Lao Tzu's words are as useful in mastering the arts of leadership in business and politics as they are in developing a sense of balance and harmony in everyday life. To follow the Tao or Way of all things and realize their true nature is to embody humility, spontaneity, and generosity.

About the Author


According to tradition, the "Tao Te Ching" was written in China around the 6th century BC by Lao Tzu ("Old Master"), a record-keeper at the court of the Zhou Dynasty. This ancient text was put into this Haiku poetry format by Thomas E. Uharriet, the same poet who encoded the world's largest acrostic, which is found in "The Memoirs of Billy Shears" (See www.BillyShears.com). In addition to writing books, Uharriet also enjoys energy work, meditation, Yoga, philosophy, art, travel, public speaking, and time with each of his five sons.
