In The Tao Speaks, Tsai Chih Chung brilliantly retells, through his enchanting and irreverently humorous cartoon panels, the two thousand-year-old text of Tao Te Ching, the inspiring classic upon which Taoism is based.
Attributed to the great Chinese philosopher Lao-tzu, The Tao Te Ching has attracted generations of followers from across the world to its simple tenets of modesty, peace, and realism. According to Lao-tzu, "If we are at peace with ourselves and the world around us, success will come unsought." Advocating poise, serenity, and complete assurance, Lao-tzu teaches men and women to work with nature rather than resist it.
