    One thought on “The Complete Works of Lao Tzu: Tao Teh Ching & Hua Hu Ching”

    1. I am usually a bit wary of ancient books on eastern mysticism, religion or wisdom this is simply because as a reader reading in English I usually find the translations unsatisfactory They can be literal translations which are usually unintelligible without the cultural background or interpretations where you are left at the mercy of the interpreter who has to veer well away from the original to make it understandable.I was recommended this by a Chinese friend who said it was a good balance of tr [...]

    2. I did not like it for several reasons I have read many translations of the Tao Teh Ching, so I have a lot to compare the first half of this volume to I know nothing of the original language, so I can make no assessment of the accuracy, but I can compare it to other translations Based on that, I can say that I found this one to be clunky and unappealing It was difficult and unpleasant to read I have never read any translation of the Hua Hu Ching before, but I read this one concurrently with Hua H [...]

    3. Coming from a non scholar, who knows little about the Chinese language, the Tao Teh Ching translation seemed good for me The Hua Hu Ching was a bit harder for me to appreciate It seemed repetative Also, after hearing the history of the Hua Hu Ching, for some reason I doubted the authenticity of the text Of course, if a text were inauthentic, but still effective, I wouldn t mind, but I did not feel that Hua Hu Ching offered anything to me that the Tao Teh Ching didn t already have I feel that if [...]

    4. This appears to be a literate version of Lau Tzu s work There is a brief introduction that puts his work into context however, I would have preferred a bit detail on his life and the context in which he lived and wrote.A couple brief excerpts to give a sense of his thought Tao, the path of subtle truth,cannot be conveyed with words.That which can be conveyed with words is merely a relative conception Or The virtue of the universe is wholeness.It regards all things as equal.The virtue of the sag [...]

    5. The best translation I ve ever read of this timeless classic Truly a life perspective improving book I can t recommend it enough.

    6. Great collection of Lao Tzu s writings The Tao Te Ching is infinitely better than the Hau Hu Ching, which became and of a ramble as it went on The first quarter is worth reading, however.

    7. I think of this book as a philosophical diary of an ancient Chinese scholar Many of the statements are both simple and profound at the same time.

    8. Reading this book is an experience I found to be both relaxing and intriguing, as I contemplated the principles of Taoism and my own customary worldview Taoist philosophy poses a difficult challenge to many traditional ways of thinking, but its implications also offer a sense of comfort and peace.The first part of this volume, the Tao Teh Ching, is older, shorter, and historically likely to have been written by the actual Lao Tzu Laozi It consists mainly of short declarations about the Tao, var [...]

    9. Your basic Taoism writings by the founder himself, Laozi There are several translations of the Tao Teh Ching, but I don t think any of them capture the essence of what was written as well as this Translation and Elucidation by Hua Ching Ni, who himself is also Chinese and familiar with its oral traditions Although an additional Taoist text, The Hua Hu Ching, is included, some scholars believe it was not written by Laozi because they can t find history of him writing it Nonetheless, these texts a [...]

    10. This book needs to be respected, to be read slowly daily to contemplate upon the truth and wisdom shared Will always remain among the best books I ve always read Top 5 at the moment.

    11. I finished the Tao Teh Ching a long time ago, but I never read Hua Hu Ching I loved Tao Teh Ching, though I m excited to see what Hua Hu Ching has to say about life
