This is the great Tao. lt has both reality and substance, but it does nothing and has no material form... It fins heaven and earth and envelops everything within the universe. When the ancient Chinese sages first discovered the Tao, they realised in themselves its mysterious results : profound guidance for a long life, penetrating insight, harmonious contentment, wisdom and knowledge of the future. Mark Forstater unveils the philosophy of the Tao, meaning The Way, which began in its written form with Chuang Tzu in the 4th century BCE. lt remains among the most influential philosophies in the Eastern world, forming the basis for everything from feng shui to acupuncture. The spiritual writings of the Tao are profound, moving and ultimately mysterious. Forstater selects and reinterprets the fables and stories of Chuang Tzu for the contemporary reader. A true innovator of human thought, Chuang Tzu's funny, striking and radical writings show how the Tao works, and how its teachings are as relevant today as they were 2300 years ago.
