The Taoist Classics

Tao-te ching cover

The main sources from which we draw the teachings of Taoism are the classic books ascribed to the Taoist masters. The best known of these is, of course, the Tao-te ching.

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

Besides these books, we also present the I-ching ( Book of Changes), a book of divination used by the ancient Chinese emperors and princes.

The Taoist concept of changes affecting the universe (both material and human) appealed to the I-ching divination and advice in order to establish the future trends of the momentary germs.

We present these books - significant abstract and commentaries - in the following sections:
