Summary

The Tao Te Ching is a Taoist philosophical treatise. Lao Tzu, a great Ancient Chinese philosopher and teacher, is considered to be the author of this book.

Dao De Jing = Correct Pronunciation

it was annoying that the Tao was mispronounced throughout the entire reading.
The essential teaching is the same of course but this was an unforgivable error by the narrator.
