    (PDF KINDLE) 道德經 [dào dé jīng] By Lao Tzu This version irritates me a lot largely because of Stephen Mitchell's arrogance in writing it I'll go into that in a bit This is not a translation which Mitchell was at least gracious enough to make clear in the back of the book; it's a translation of various translations The problem with this is that a translation of a translation turns out the same way that a copy of a copy does while some of the original words and phrases are

道德經 [dào dé jīng]

review 道德經 [dào dé jīng] 道德經 dào dé jīng Summary Ä 6 Lao Tzu ☆ 6 review Written 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 Traditio. I m an unbeliever and have been since the first time I played hooky from Sunday services and the Eye in the Sky didn t say boo So it may seem strange that I m reviewing the Tao Te Ching the widely known and influential Taoist text written by Lao Tzu and poetically translated in this edition by Stephen Mitchell For me the Tao Te Ching is folk wisdom than religious treatise and is useful than a million sermonsWhere the Tao Te Ching parts company with religious attempts at morality such as the 10 Commandments is in its inclusiveness Seven of the 10 Commandments don t mention God and are sound advice designed to facilitate peaceful community relations respect your elders don t kill don t cheat on your spouse don t steal don t tell lies and don t lust after another s spouse or his belongings For me the tragedy of the Great List is that the three that top it serve only to divide the world into believers and nonbelievers regardless how closely you follow the last seven if you don t believe in God you re not worth a fig In doing so the first three create division where the last seven seek harmony With Taoism even if you don t believe in the Force like nature of the Tao and in case there s any uestion I don t you can still consider yourself a TaoistTaoism seeks harmony by freeing the individual from the caustic effects of judgmental thinking desire and greed and its fulcrum is the concept of non action or literally doing not doing Non action Mitchell writes in his introduction is not the act of doing nothing but instead is the purest form of action The game plays the game the poem writes the poem we can t tell the dancer from the dance This slim book is both a uick read and a long study Mitchell s lyrical rendering of the Tao Te Ching might read to some like silly hippie clich s but there s to it than that Take chapter 9 a photocopy of which hung on my office corkboard for yearsFill your cup to the brim and it will spillKeep sharpening your knife and it will bluntChase after money and security and your heart will never unclenchCare about people s approval and you will be their prisonerYou can almost see the hacky sack and smell the patchouli But there s a truth to it that if grasped will change the way you thinkAs chapter 1 states The tao that can be told is not the eternal TaoThe name that can be named is not the eternal Name Analogy then plays an important role in understanding the Tao Te Ching and the reader has to do uite a bit of work the long study part to fathom the book s richness Take chapter 11 in its entirety where non action is discussedWe join spokes together in a wheel but it is the center hole that makes the wagon moveWe shape clay into a pot but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we wantWe hammer wood for a house but it is the inner space that makes it livableWe work with being but non being is what we useThere is to the book than philosophical abstraction In fact common sense pervades the Tao Te Ching Take these lines which discuss the roots of crime If you overvalue possessions people begin to steal chapter 2 and If you don t trust the people you make them untrustworthy chapter 17 Or these from chapter 38 which describe the toll of illusory thought When the Tao is lost there is goodnessWhen goodness is lost there is moralityWhen morality is lost there is ritualRitual is the husk of true faithThe beginning of chaosTherefore the Master concerns himself with the depths and not the surfaceWith the fruit and not the flowerHe has no will of his ownHe dwells in reality and lets all illusions goI m telling you had I been born into Taoism I might actually believe in something

review 道德經 [dào dé jīng] 道德經 dào dé jīng Summary Ä 6 Lao Tzu ☆ 6 review Nally attributed to the near legendary Old Master Lao Tzu the Tao Teh Ching teaches that the ualities of the enlightened sage or ideal ruler are identical with those of the perfected individual Today Lao Tzu's words are as useful in masteri. There are many translations of the Taoteching nearly every one of which is probably worth reading but this is my favorite version I can t attest to the accuracy of the translation but having read so many different translations of the same text I feel like in some strange way I have a grasp of the original as if a blank space the Chinese original has been given shape and definition by all the English versions surrounding it But anyway while I like the spare sensitivity of the language in this version what makes this version extra special are the added bonuses an engagingly detailed introduction exploring the life of Lao Tzu what amounts to an original thesis on the very meaning of tao and commentaries on specific lines even specific words appended to each of the 81 entries that have been culled from centuries upon centuries of critical commentary by scholars and eccentric mystics alikeThere is recent scholarship that is making the argument that instead of meaning way or path which is usually taken to mean how we as people conduct ourselves in accordance with a mysterious spiritual principle that tao actually refers to the Moon and its various phases and paths in space with particular emphasis on the darkness of the new moon and its significance as potential in darkness The new moon hides its fullness The fullness is there in potential unspent I like this There s something pleasingly primitive about it gimme that old time religion ie something real and tangibly mysterious but also something practical and spiritual a connector between eye and heart that through some subtle gravity guides our feet along a pathThe commentaries that follow each poem or entry are fascinating and just scratch the surface of what I understand is a vast accumulation of scholarship on this text The commentaries are often wildly contradictory and tangential obsessive to an anal nth degree but also at times wise in their own right These commentaries have been written by official scholars by mendicant monks and even one or two extreme eccentrics living on the fringes of society unaffiliated with any institution At the back of the book are short biographies of each commentator which is fascinating reading in itself It all adds up to evidence that this is a living book with enough clear and direct meaning to be perpetually valid and enough obscurity to be endlessly ponderedThe translator is an American who goes by the name Red Pine He s almost 70 now and has been a practicing Buddhist for years but in the wandering independent scholar Gary Snyder type style He s also translated the Diamond Sutra poems of Han Shan Cold Mountain and Stonehouse and some other Buddhist texts In every work of his I ve read there s serious scholarship in evidence but also a free spirit and independent thinker with a uniue store of fresh air Stop Giving Your Power Away ualities of the enlightened sage or ideal ruler are identical with those of the perfected individual Today Lao Tzu's words are as Holding on Tighter upon centuries of critical commentary by scholars and eccentric mystics alikeThere is recent scholarship that is making the argument that instead of meaning way or path which is Five Point SomeoneOne Night at the Call Centre2 States The Story of My MarriageThe 3 Mistakes of My Life usually taken to mean how we as people conduct ourselves in accordance with a mysterious spiritual principle that tao actually refers to the Moon and its various phases and paths in space with particular emphasis on the darkness of the new moon and its significance as potential in darkness The new moon hides its fullness The fullness is there in potential دریغا ملا عمر unspent I like this There s something pleasingly primitive about it gimme that old time religion ie something real and tangibly mysterious but also something practical and spiritual a connector between eye and heart that through some subtle gravity guides our feet along a pathThe commentaries that follow each poem or entry are fascinating and just scratch the surface of what I Ainakin tuhat laivaa understand is a vast accumulation of scholarship on this text The commentaries are often wildly contradictory and tangential obsessive to an anal nth degree but also at times wise in their own right These commentaries have been written by official scholars by mendicant monks and even one or two extreme eccentrics living on the fringes of society New York to Dallas unaffiliated with any institution At the back of the book are short biographies of each commentator which is fascinating reading in itself It all adds Empire of Hell uniue store of fresh air
