Riassunto: The Tao Te Ching, the esoteric but infinitely practical book written in the sixth century B.C. by Lao Tsu, has been translated more times than any work except the Bible. Chuang Tsu’s Inner Chapters was written in the fourth century B.C. as a companion volume to the Tao Te Ching. Chuang Tsu was to Lao Tsu as Saint Paul was to Jesus, and Plato was to Socrates.
This marks the sixteenth year of the Tao wall calendar, which features contemplative nature photographs, Chinese calligraphy and text from Gia-fu Feng and Jane English’s translations of the Tao Te Ching and Chuang Tsu’s Inner Chapters.
In the beginning those who knew the Tao did not try to enlighten others, but kept it hidden. Why is it so hard to rule? Because the people are so clever. Rulers who try to use cleverness cheat the country. Those who rule without cleverness are a blessing to the land. These are the two alternatives. Understanding these is Primal Virtue. Primal Virtue is deep and far. It leads all things back toward the great oneness.
—Tao Te Ching, Chapter Sixty-Five
