Origins Taoism is one of the most important “strains” of Chinese thought through time. Taoism, unlike other religious traditions has no single origin, like Christianity or Islam. There are two distinct sources for Taoism: One, the philosophers of the Civil War period (403-221 BCE) who followed a Tao or way of nature instead of following the Tao of society. Second, The shamans and magicians who, since the Shang Dynasty (1700-1100 BCE) played a significant role in the life of the ordinary Chinese population (Hubbard 25).

Help Taoism Alternative Religions profiles History/Founder/important persons/saints Taoism (or, Daoism) was adopted as the state religion of China in the fifth century. Taoism is based on the work, The Tao-te-Ching, believed to have been written around 600 BCE (Scholars place the book at no earlier than 300 BCE) and attributed to the philosopher Lao Tse. The true beginning of the Taoist religion is placed in the first century with the adoption of Lao Tse's philosophy by the teacher Zhang Dao Ling. Another important figure is Chuang-tse, but the important Taoist work of the same name attributed to him was most likely authored by his disciples. Current leader/governing body: None. Taoism is a widespread and largely autonomous faith. Number of Adherents: About two hundred million worldwide.

Tao (pronounced Dow) means The Way (to happiness) . This sounds very nice, but what is the Way? It was easy for me to begin to understand Taoism. I had a great teacher, Winnie-the-Pooh! There is a delightful book by Benjamin Hoff called "The Tao of Pooh " (Penguin Books, 1982). If you are familiar with A. A. Milne's enchanting characters, Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit, Owl, Tigger, and Eeyore, you'll be surprised if you read "The Tao of Pooh" at how easy it is to learn about Taoism. It's also a great deal of fun, which is very Taoist, as Taoists are firm believers in joy and laughter. Taoism is not a religion . Taoism is a philosophy, a way of looking at life and a way of thinking about things. Taoists believe if you look at life and think about things in the right way, you'll be much happier. Here are three Taoist philosophy statements and three conversations from The House at Pooh Corner by A. A. Milne. Can you guess which Taoist philosophy statement might go with which conversation? In other words, can you match them up? For the answers

Home Agriculture Art Business ... Travel Chinese Philosophies and Religions Taoism Taoism and A Few Words about Tao Taoism is a philosophy, a religion and also the basis for Traditional Chinese Medication. It represents the wisdom accumulated over 5,000 years of Chinese history. Together with Confucianism and Buddhism, it has been continuously guiding Chinese in behaviors and governing. There are some very basic different approaches taken by the West and Chinese philosophies. The West treats individual as an independent and separate entity. Chinese treats individual as an element in the whole universe and is interrelated. West tends to be self-centered and thus any blame will be first on others. On the opposite, Chinese is taught to merge self into the environment as a whole or there is no self at all. Tao and Taoism are different from "God" and "Bible". To understand Taoism, one has to "unlearn" or break out from own paradigm to view it from a completely new angle. "Tao" means "behavior, understanding and the constant changing from and to". Taoism is a philosophy and a belief of simplicity and the very nature of universe. There is no absolute "stillness". Everything, including the universe, is changing all the time. The relative "stability" can be achieved when a harmony is reached between "Yin" and "Yang", which are said to be the opposite but related natural forces in the universe. There are five elements in everything. The following diagram described their interrelationship.

Taiwan 2002
Taoism developed from the philosophy of Lao Tzu ¦Ñ¤l, who lived in the sixth century b.c. He and his disciples emphasized individual freedom, laissez-faire government, human spontaneity, and mystical experience. Taoist philosophy takes The Way and Its Power ¹D¼w¸g as its central text. The themes of Taoism as a religion coalesced in the third century b.c., but Taoism itself did not become an organized religious movement until the second century a.d. The fundamental aim of religious Taoism was the attainment of immortality. Accordingly, people who lived in harmony with nature were said to become "immortals" ¥P. Lao Tzu, founder of the philosophy of Taoism, eventually was deified as a Taoist god at the head of a huge pantheon of "immortal" folk heroes. Famous generals and sages made up the rest of the pantheon once they had ascended to immortal status. The Taoist pursuit of everlasting life ultimately led to a search for immortality pills or potions. Medieval Taoist rituals to some extent mirrored alchemical research in Europe during the same period. Taoism was adopted as the religion of the imperial court during the seventh through the ninth centuries, and Taoist mystical elements were codified. In the ensuing centuries, the Taoist religious community was increasingly fractionalized. Taoism became interlaced with elements of Buddhism, Confucianism, and folk religion. The particular forms of Taoist religion brought to Taiwan (then regarded as an outlying frontier area) some 300 years ago are considered typical of the fragmented Taoist traditions. The most distinctive feature of the present practice is the worship of one's forebears alongside Taoist deities.

Comments on the Tao Te Ching
using the D.C. Lau translation (Penguin Books, 1963)
  • Book I: The Tao Te Ching , the " Classic of the Way and Virtue" (or, the "Power of the Way," etc.), is divided into two books. This was often thought to be an arbitrary division; but recently a manuscript was discovered in which the order of the two books was actually reversed. An interpretation has now been offered that the two books are intended to be about the Tao ] and Te ]. Book I does begin with statements about the Tao , and Book II with statements about Te . Since the Tao might be thought to be more important than Te , the format that reverses the books may then simply reflect that judgment.
    • Chapter I: Comparing our edition with other translations of the Tao Te Ching , you may discover that they can be wildly different. One problem is just that ancient Chinese really is a different language from modern Chinese. This can create uncertainties even in translating Confucius , who was trying to be clear and simple. But the problems multiply with Taoism, which is often deliberately obscure and paradoxical. Why Taoism is that way is explained by the first verse: the Tao really cannot be spoken of or named.

Fast Facts on Taoism (Daoism)
Taoism (also spelled Daoism ) is based on the teachings of the Tao Te Ching , a short tract written in the 6th century BC in China. Its emphasis on spiritual harmony within the individual complements Confucianism's focus on social duty. The two great Chinese belief systems were founded at about the same time and continue to exist side-by-side in today's China. There are two main strands and schools within Taoism, usually labeled " philosophical Taoism " ( Tao-chia ) and " religious Taoism " ( Tao-chaio ). Scholars now say the two are not as strongly distinguished as once thought, but the former generally focuses on the philosophical writings of Lao-Tzu, Chuang-Tzu and other early mystics while the latter emphasizes religious rituals aimed at attaining immortality. Today, there are

"13 Chapters on Celtic Taoism"
by Frank Allen

A short introduction to the book - and - the Idea CELTIC TAOISM is founded on the idea that all seperations exist only for the potential of union. The blending of the basic philosophy of Northern Asia with the root culture of Northern Europe shows the syncretic harmony which exists, inherently, in ideas from the oppposite ends of the earth. This represents the, all important, potential for the unity of humankind. An idea that may be essential to the continued existence of man. Seperation, in a time of overpopulation, can only lead to chaos. Unity, with respect for Individuality, can lead to evolvement, instead of following chaos into extinction. "The Thirteen Chapters" are only the foundational guidelines, which are devised to provoke thought and commentary. They are as follows:
  • The Birth of a Sect; explains the beginnings. Why Celtic Taoism?; answers the basic question. shows the Yin and Yang of East and West. The Morality of No Morality expounds Balance over Good and Evil Thierna-Na-Oge and the Taoist Transitions of the Death Cycle;
