The Tao Te Ching, written by Lao-Tzu, a Chinese philosopher who lived in the 6th century B.C., is a simple yet deeply rich book containing 81 verses relating to the ways of nature. They speak to the truths of the universe in order to help you find your path and to live your life in harmony with yourself and others.


"From caring comes courage." -Lao-Tzu


The Tao (pronounced Dao) loosely translated into English from Chinese means the "way, path or truth," an all-embracing truth present everywhere revealing the laws of nature, the polarities of existence, Yin-Yang, Darkness and Light.
