21. Taoism
A discussion on taoism. A source of information for deeper understanding of religious subjects.
(6th Century BC) General Information Tao means 'the Way' or 'Way of Life.' Lao - Tse is the supposed author of the Tao Te Ching, a small book containing the main tenets of Taoism. The book is divided into two parts, the Tao and the Tek, and is subdivided into 81 chapters. He was a contemporary of Confucius, who visited him several times and who was deeply impressed by the spirituality and humility of Lao - Tse. 'All things originate from Tao, conform to Tao, and to Tao they at last return.' Lao - Tse taught a belief in transmigration of souls, which got absorbed into Taoism, Confucianism and the other Eastern religions as reincarnation. Where Confucianism is rather practical, Taoism is largely negative in its teachings and emphasizes pacifism, mysticism, and the importance of non - activity. Taoism taught its believers to cast aside worldly pleasures, honors, and glory and to be content with their lot. Later on, Taoism came to be a religion of spirits and ancestor worship far removed from the original simple teachings. A priesthood arose, shrines and temples were erected, and an elaborate system composed of magic, charms, and spells was developed. BELIEVE

Part 4: Taoism and modernity
By Henry C K Liu
  • Part 1: The race toward barbarism
  • Part 2: That old time religion
  • Part 3: Rule of law vs Confucianism
    To Taoists, modernity is a meaningless concept because truth is timeless and life goes in circles. In post-modern thinking in the West, much of the awareness that Taoists have entertained for centuries is just now surfacing. Even in military strategy, Sun Tzu's On the Art of War (Sunzi Bingfa), an ancient Taoist military treatise (500 BC), is now much in vogue in this modern age of weapons of mass destruction and remote-controlled precision bombs.
    Historians are uncertain of the historical facts regarding Laozi, founder of Taoism. The name itself casts doubt on Laozi's identity. Ad verbum
  • 25. Eastern Philosophy- Taoism
    Article by Fritjof Capra. Compares taoism to other eastern philosophies as well as discussing dualism.
      by Fritjof Capra
    Of the two main Chinese trends of thought, Confucianism and Taoism, the latter is the one which is mystically oriented and thus more relevant for our comparison with modern physics. Like Hinduism and Buddhism, Taoism is interested in intuitive wisdom, rather than in rational knowledge. Acknowledging the limitations and the relativity of the world of rational thinking, Taoism is, basically, a way of liberation from this world and is, in this respect, comparable to the ways of Yoga or Vedanta in Hinduism, or to the Eightfold Path of the Buddha. In the context of Chinese culture, the Taoist liberation meant, more specifically, a liberation from the strict rules of convention.
    Mistrust of conventional knowledge and reasoning is stronger in Taoism than in any other school of Eastern philosophy. It is based on the firm belief that the human intellect can never comprehend the Tao. In the words of Chuang Tzu, The most extensive knowledge does not necessarily know it; reasoning will not make men wise in it. The sages have decided against both these methods. Chuang Tzu's book is full of passages reflecting the Taoist's contempt of reasoning and argumentation. Thus he says

    Taoism is a genuinely Chinese religion. Some hold the opinion that without understanding Taoism, there can be no understanding of Chinese culture. Doctrines of Taoism
    Lao Zi was the creator of Taoism. According to the Shi Ji, or Records of the Historian, by Sima Qian , Lao Zi was named Li Er, with Dan as his alias. He was a reputed thinker around 6th century B.C. There are many legends about Lao Zi but few historical records. He left a 5, 000-word book and went on his ox from Hangu Pass and to where nobody knows! Lao Zi's 5,000 words are rather concise compared to his profound ideological system but there were numerous books interpreting the true meaning of his book. Tao, originally, meant 'road' and then implied 'to rule' and 'principle'. Lao Zi used Tao to propound his ideological system; therefore his school of thinking is called Taoism. At the time Lao Zi created Taoism, it was simply a school of philosophy. It was during the Eastern Han Dynasty that Taoism became a religion.

    Laozi was the original and the only philosopher of Taoism. He has influenced many Chinese thinkers: Confucius, Sun Tzu, Han fei Tzu, and of course Chuang Tzu. However, Zhuangzi(Chuang Tzu) had romanticized his themes, he was thus more a man of letters. Sunzi(Sun Tzu), who was said to be once taught by Laozi personally, has established himself as a great military strategist. Hanfeizi wrote extensively on Legalism, whereas he was the first person interpreting

    Jump to: navigation search The Yellow Emperor , an early Taoist Taoism or Daoism is a type of belief It is at least 2,500 years old and it comes from China . Some people call Taoism a religion , other people call it a philosophy . People disagree about what to call it because it means different things to different people. Tao or Dao is the name of the Force or the "Way" that Taoists believe makes everything in the world. It is very mysterious and Taoists do not try to talk about it because they think that words cannot be used to say the right things about it. The very first line of the D o D© JÄ«ng (Tao Te Ching) , the most important text in Taoism, says: This is pronounced like, "Dao ke dao fei chang dao." One translation of this into English language might be:
    "The Way that can be explained in words is not the true Way."
    Instead of spending a lot of time trying to explain what the Tao is, Taoists focus on living a simple and balanced life in harmony with nature . This is one of the most important principles in Taoism. Taoists also believe that conflict is not good and that if you have a problem with something, it is better to find a way around it.

I hope you will enjoy the information that I bring to you and that it inspires you to seek out knowledge for our own personal reasons and rewards. You see the mind is like an old chest that you one day find up in the attic. It is usually very large, and has a latent beauty and usefulness to it. But first things first.
    First for it to be useful you must empty it so you can begin to fill it, then you must clean it up and make it worth presenting. In other words dump all preconceived notions, for most are wrong, and begin to reconstruct your mind. The first step in this recovery process is to accept how ignorant we all are in this world and to try to make a little dent in that overwhelming ignorance before we die. Become the seeker, and go on unflinching with your quest.

    Taoism for Kids - in ancient China, a philosophy of how to live your life according to the Way
    Later portrait of Lao Tsu Taoism is a philosophy or way of life that may have been started by a man named Lao Tsu (or Lao Tzu) who lived a little before Confucius , about 600 BC . Tao means the "way" or the "path". According to the traditional story, Lao Tsu worked as a librarian in the emperor's library (this was in the Eastern Chou dynasty). Lao Tsu believed that the way to happiness was for people to learn to "go with the flow." Instead of trying to get things done the hard way, people should take the time to figure out the natural, or easy way to do things, and then everything would get done more simply. This idea is called "wu-wei", which means "doing by not doing". Lao Tsu also thought that everything alive in the universe (plants, animals, people) shared in a universal life-force. There were two sides to the life-force, which are called the yin and the yang. This picture is often used to show how the yin and the yang are intertwined with each other. The yin (the dark side) is the side of women, the moon, things that are still like ponds, and completion and death. The yang (the light side) is the side of men, the sun, things that move like rivers, and creation and birth. Everyone has some yin and some yang in them, and Taoism says that it is important to keep them balanced. Chinese doctors believed that a lot of illnesses were caused by too much yin or too much yang.

    An open letter to Taoists
    See this page in: Korean - 한국어 This article is addressed mainly to those of you who adhere to and/or are proponents of one of three major Eastern religious and philosophical traditions— Hinduism Buddhism , Taoism. This article is addressed particularly to those of you who lean toward a Toaist (or Daoist) view of life. Only a very limited number of individuals living here in the West today would consider themselves Taoist by religion, but in terms of a Taoist thoughtform you certainly do have significant company. A FAMOUS TAOIST SAYING: “Those who know don’t say, and those who say don’t know.” I n the sixth century B.C. Lao-tzu, the purported founder of Taoism, said (and wrote) many things about Taoism. And certainly this very famous Taoist saying has now been said. Are we therefore to understand that no one who has ever spoken for Taoism in the past (including Lao-Tzu himself), or who would ever speak for Taoism in the future, actually knows anything about Taoism or 'Taoist truth'? “The cosmic Tao is invisible, inaudible, unnameable, undiscussible, inexpressible”

    TAOISM: A PORTRAIT by Dr. Douglas K. Chung
    Professor at Grand Valley State University School
    of Social Work, Grand Rapids, Michigan
    Li Erh (6th century BCE) commonly known as Lao Tzu (the Old Master), was a contemporary of Confucius. He was the keeper of the imperial library, but in his old age he disappeared to the west, leaving behind him the Tao Te Ching (Book of Tao and Virtue). Taoism derived its name from this profoundly wise book, only about 5,000 words in length. It can be used as a guide to the cultivation of the self as well as a political manual for social transformation at both the micro and macro levels. The philosophy of Taoism and its belief in immortals can be traced back to the Yellow Emperor, Huang-Ti. That is why Taoism is often called the "Huang-Lao" philosophy. Taoism believes "Tao" to be the cosmic, mysterious, and ultimate principle underlying form, substance, being, and change. Tao encompasses everything. It can be used to understand the universe and nature as well as the human body. For example, "Tao gives birth to the One, the One gives birth to Two, and from Two emerges Three, Three gives birth to all the things. All things carry the Yin and the Yang, deriving their vital harmony from the proper blending of the two vital forces." ( Tao Te Ching , ch. 42) Tao is the cause of change and the source of all nature, including humanity. Everything from quanta to solar systems consists of two primary elements of existence, Yin and Yang forces, which represent all opposites. These two forces are complementary elements in any system and result in the harmony or balance of the system. All systems coexist in an interdependent network. The dynamic tension between Yin and Yang forces in all systems results in an endless process of change: production and reproduction and the transformation of energy. This is the natural order.
