Tao Teh Ching:The Way and Its Nature
 

Translated by John R. Leebrick

Authored by Lao Tse

The Tao Teh Ching, or The Way and Its Nature, has granted its profound truths to humanity for 2,500 years. An enduring Chinese classic and the foundation of Taoist mysticism, it is as timely today as it has been throughout the ages, especially when compared with the new paradigm of reality emerging from modern physics.
The appeal of the Leebrick translation comes from his personal mastery of the mystical insights of Taoism. Although the work exists in numerous English versions, typically the profound concepts and paradoxes of Lao Tse have evaded the minds of translators using an academic approach.
As Leebrick, a native Texan, points out, "It is a tremendous help, if not a necessity, for a translator to understand what is being said. This understanding only comes from study and meditation. In short, to properly translate the Tao Teh Ching, one must be a Taoist."
