Everyone Needs to Know the Way

Lao-Tzu's Taoteching, translated by Red Pine with Selected Commentaries of the past 2,000 years shows the Way. It's that simple.

As a student of The Way for three decades, Red Pine's beautiful, thoughtful journey through many sages' interpretation of The I Ching gifted me beyond measure. Over the decades, I have created from many translations of the I Ching's 64 Hexagrams my own personal book.

Red Pine shows and presents 81 thought forms, not hexagram based, another way to learn The Way, that I found enlightening.

I realize that the brevity of my review anticipates a certain knowledge of the Chinese wisdom known as The Way of Heaven, I Ching, and Tao Te Ching (pronounced dow da jing). The reason beyond brevity, stems from the likelihood of attraction by those familiar.

Still, I can't stress enough the supreme value of reading Lao-Tzu's Taoteching even if you are not, as yet, familiar with this Chinese wisdom and the land's great sages, like  Confucius.

Other greats from other lands became famous for practicing wisdom like The Way of Heaven: Jesus of Nazareth, Gandhi of India and Martin Luther King in America.

Read this book as one of the treasures of ancient wisdom and allow the principles presented  to penetrate your body to come to rest in your heart, mind and spirit forever.

Thanks for posting the reviews, Barbara! I've so many books to read that it'll probably take a while before I get to this one. However, I did manage to download a free copy of Sun Tzu's Art of War recently, have you read it before?

Indeed I have and it is a great read, well worth the time. He was wise and taught me much.

Of course, there's a poem out of the 81 thought forms. Contact me at http://www.BarbaraGarro.com if you would like to hear it.
