Introduction to the Tao Te Ching

Tao-Te-Ching-Stephen-MitchellThis class is 4 weeks long.

The Tao Te Ching is a Chinese spiritual classic. According to tradition, it was written around 6th century BCE by Chinese sage and governmental record-keeper, Lao Tzu.

Tao means “the way.” Te means “virtue” or “inner strength.” Ching means “great book” or “classic.” So, we can translate Tao Te Ching as “The Great Book of the Way’s Virtue.” However, “virtue” in this context does not refer to virtue as humans typically understand it. In fact, if humans really understood, embraced and lived the virtue of the Tao, appearances like conflict and lack would be impossible.
