The Book of the Way

Tao te Ching

After seeing the Dalai Lama speak in 1989, I browsed the books for sale outside the university auditorium and first discovered the Tao te Ching.

That was Stephen Mitchell’s translation, and I took it home and read it,  bending like a stem to its soft humor and smiling guidance.

The 81 poems comprising the Tao provide a map to a spiritual territory, a land far from the pages of a book, closer perhaps to the heart of all our deeds.
