Publisher's Summary

Wise yet worldly, spiritual yet practical, the Tao Te Ching is beloved by seekers all the world over. This new edition features a lucid, poetic translation that makes the Tao Te Ching accessible to contemporary listeners.

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".

:(

I would love to listen to the whole thing but the readers voice (or maybe the recording quality) hurts my ears really bad.

Worth Listening Again and Again

This is a beautiful translation of the Tao Te Ching that is beautifully read by someone who has an understanding of what she is reading. I have listened to several translations with different readers. I have also read the Tao in many forms. This one is outstanding and I will relisten frequently.

Poetically spoken

The narrator speaks with a poetic style, which makes for a relaxing-even spiritual-experience.
