    Tao Te Ching Introduction. Are you ready for a heapin' helpin' of ancient Chinese wisdom? You couldn't have come to a better text, Shmooper. The Tao Te Ching (or Dao De Jing) has been blowing minds and changing lives for over 2, years. The worldwide influence of these eighty-one short chapters can't be shortchanged.   With this edition of the Tao Te Ching, an unlikely team of a Japanese art expert and a Greek translator pull off a uniquely powerful version of the one thing marks the language of the original Tao Te Ching, it is linguistic n Addiss and Stanley Lombardo are the first to succeed in duplicating the language in English, and although their Reviews:

Lao-tzu's Tao Te Ching, or Book of the Way, is the classic manual on the art of living and one of the wonders of the world. In eighty-one brief chapters, the Tao Te Ching llods at the basic predicatment of being alive and gives advice that imparts balance and perspective, a serene and generous spirit.

However, most scholars today trace its writing to as late as the 4th or even 3rd century BCE. The title translated means "The Book of the Way and its Power.". This is what is called ‘The mysterious Quality’ (of the Tao). Chapter Verse 1. When the Great Tao (Way or Method) ceased to be observed, benevolence and righteousness came into vogue. (Then) appeared wisdom and shrewdness, and there ensued great hypocrisy. Chapter Verse 1.
