Summary

Originally published in the fourth century BC, wise yet worldly, spiritual yet practical, the Tao Te Ching is beloved by seekers all the world over. The Tao Te Ching is a series of meditations on the mysterious nature of the Tao - the Way, the guiding light, the very source of all existence. According to Lao Tzu (a name meaning "the old master"), the Tao is found where we would least expect it - not in the strong but in the weak; not in speech but in silence; not in doing but in “not-doing.” 

Here you will hear a lucid, poetic translation that makes the Tao Te Ching accessible to the modern world.

Great reserve

Interesting and contentful Requires notes since there aren't chapters. And the notes will be needed to be able to think through this vast source

Valuable Wisdom

Once you can understand this information, it becomes a powerful tool to practice transforming your life. The narrative was well done, I just had some struggles understanding the Tao. But you can Google the chapters and find translation on the 81 chapters.
