Short book of the sayings ot Lao Tzu the founder of Taoism. I had a student who was Tao once and because of my knowledge barrier and our language barrier, I had trouble understating until I realized through him that Buddhism and Taoism were separate religions. I thought Taoism was the Chinese version of Buddhism and he was the one who helped me understand that. Reading this book helps me understand Taoist beliefs more clearly. Good reading.
از اونجایی که دائوئیسم یکی از آبشخورهای ذن بود، سراغش رفتم تا ببینم چی ازش دستگیرم میشه. تاثیر نظراتش کاملا مشخصه، ولی در ذن تا حد زیادی ضدیت با عقل (تا جایی که من فهمیدم) تعدیل شده.
قسمتهای جالب زیادی داشت. پاسخ دائو چیست، تا حد زیادی شبیه است به پاسخ ذن چیست. ولی هر چی به انتها نزدیکتر میشدم، ارتباطم با مطالب کمتر و کمتر میشد. خصوصا قسمتهایی که در مذمت عقل بود و اون رو مایهٔ خیلی از مشکلات میدونست، فرمانروایی خوب رو در این میدونست که مردم رو بگذاریم به حال خودشون تا بهخوبیوخوشی زندگی کنند.

I enjoy reading different translations of this philosophy, seeing how the translator's values give flavor to the text. Interesting that one of my favorites, Blakey's, is attributed to Lin Yu Tang, my favorite. I also recommend Aldous Huxley's translation, which I didn't find on this listing.

"Se você procura a sua realização nos outros, você nunca será realizado. Se a sua felicidade depende de dinheiro, você nunca será feliz consigo mesmo. Se está contente com o que você tem; fique feliz com a maneira como as coisas são. Quando você perceber que não está faltando nada, o mundo pertence-lhe".
