Taoist Classics

Tao-te ching cover

The main sources from which we extracted the teachings of Taoism are the books written by the Taoist masters. The best known of these is, of course, Tao-te ching.

The word "ching" can be translated into sacred text, scripture, work of fundamental importance, hence the idea of classic.

Besides these books, we also included the texts of the Book of Changes (I-ching)which also give us many insights into the theories and practice of Taoism.

We present these books and significant extracts from them according to the following list:

> Tao-te ching (with comments)
Chuang-tzu (Nan-hua Chen-ching)
The Classic of Perfect Emptiness or Lieh-tzu
I-ching (Book of Changes)
