Banyen's Description: 

For over 2,500 years the words of the Tao Te Ching, the primary scripture of Laoism and   Taoism, have been regarded as among the greatest treasures of the world. Lao-tzu, whose name means “the ancient child,” wrote these brief but essential verses that have both confounded and conferred blessings on humankind, while providing guiding counsel for many generations of leaders and sages. Now Taoist masters Mantak Chia and Tao Huang guide readers through the origins of this philosophy, the meaning behind its 5,000 pictographs, and the way of living that generations have followed.

The book includes Tao Huang’s English translation of the Tao Te Ching from the original Chinese Mawangdui text unearthed in 1973.

While the text of the Tao Te Ching has been passed down in literary form for generations, the essence of the text can be understood only through heart awakening—a true integration of body and mind—made possible with the insights and exercises in this book. The Secret Teachings of the Tao Te Ching analyzes Lao-tzu’s teachings, line by line, and offers meditations, interpretations, and practical illustrations that clarify the true meaning and purpose of this classic text.
