Why own the Tao Te Ching?

Having your own copy of the Tao Te Ching (Dao De Ching) is an essential piece of literature to every home and it supports the authors who have spent thousands of hours translating it to English. It is nearly impossible to render Chinese text exactly in English without losing some of its original nature. The classical Chinese symbols do not stand for a single concrete idea, but evoke associations of different ideas and things and thus, in order to understand the original text fully it is helpful to read various translations. You can see all the ones we own and have enjoyed here.
