by Lao Tzu
First written in the 6th century in classic Chinese, Tao Te Ching has been translated numerous times into English. Recently revised and re-translated, Tao Te Ching now reflects the true essence of Lao Tzu’s teachings. Although religion and Taoism are the overarching themes of this book, the advice given can be applied to even the lives of the most extreme atheists. This book outlines the simple actions that can be taken to be free of the negative effects of desire, greed and judgmental thinking.
