Tao Te Ching

Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching is the source of Zen Buddhism, and is probably the most broadly influential spiritual text in human history.

Complete & Unabridged. Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library; a series of stunning, cloth-bound, pocket-sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition is translated and introduced by David Hinton. Fluent in ancient Chinese and an acclaimed poet, he skilfully reveals how remarkably current and even innovative this text is after 2500 years.

According to legend, Lao Tzu left China at the age of eighty, saddened that men would not follow the path to natural goodness. At the border with Tibet, a guard asked him to record his teachings and the Tao Te Ching is what he wrote down before leaving. Lao Tzu's spirituality describes the Cosmos as a harmonious and generative organism, and it shows how the human is an integral part of that cosmos.

Om forfatteren

Lao Tzu is the reputed founder of Taoism, but there is little evidence that he actually existed. He is said to have been a contemporary of Confucius and to have served as curator of the dynastic archives until retiring to the mythical K’un-lun mountains.

David Hinton has translated many volumes of classical Chinese poetry and is the first translator in nearly two centuries to translate all five of the seminal classics in Chinese philosophy. This work has earned him many national awards in the United States, including a lifetime achievement award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. His book of essays, Hunger Mountain: A Field Guide to Mind and Landscape was on the Guardian's Best-Books-of-the-Year list.

Paal – 20.02.2005

– Forlaget Penguin fant selv opp bekrepet pocketbok, og deres rikholdige utvalg av 'Penguin Classics' har kanskje mer enn noen annen serie bidratt til å gjøre litteraturhistoriens klassikere lett tilgjengelige. Deres utgave av "Tao te Ching" er med rette en av de mest leste ugavene av dette klassiske verket. "Tao Te Ching" kan kanskje best beskrives som en taoistisk bibel, og beskriver en annenverdslig, tilbaketrukket og kontemplativ åndelighet. I motsetning til andre 'bibler' er den faktisk svært kortfattet - oversetterens innledning i denne Penguin-utgaven er nesten like lang som den oversatte teksten. Taoismen er en temmelig verdensfjern tro, noe som gjenspeiles i "Tao Te Ching's" underfundige tekster, som helt tydelig muliggjør flere tolkninger. Denne utgaven er heldigvis utstyrt med detaljerte kommentarer til vanskelige passasjer i teksten, noe som er uunnværlig for leseropplevelsen.
