About this audiobook

The Daodejing (Chinese 道德 經, Dàodéjīng) (older translation: Tao Te King) is a collection of spell chapters, which is attributed to the legendary sage Lǎozǐ.

The genesis is uncertain and the subject of sinological research. Regardless of other translations, Dào means 'way, principle' and 'sense', and Dé means 'force, life' and 'charisma, virtue, goodness'. Jīng refers to a guide or classic text collection.

The two eponymous terms stand for something inexpressible, whose actual meaning the book would like to point out. For this reason, they are often left untranslated. The work is considered the founding font of Daoism. Although this includes various currents that may differ considerably from the Dàodéjīng,

Daodejing (Tao Te Ching)


Laozi was a Chinese philosopher and author commonly understood to have lived in the 6th century BC, although the time of his life is much disputed, and he has become as much a legend as a historical figure. Traditionally credited as the author of The Book of Tao, also known as The Tao Te Ching and The Tao and Its Characteristics, he is regarded as the father of Taoism and one of the most universally influential figures in Chinese culture.
