The Dude De Ching is an interpretation of the Tao Te Ching for followers of Dudeism.

Dudeism is an authentic religion with over 150,000 ordained "Dudeist Priests." It is inspired mainly by Taoism and the Coen Brothers' 1998 film "The Big Lebowski." This funny and inspiring book of spiritual lessons will help you take it easy and abide in the face of any gutterballs that are thrown your way.

Each verse is followed by the original Tao Te Ching (Peter Merel's interpolation) to help show the similarity between Dudeism and Taoism.

The Dude De Ching is illustrated by award-winning mystery novelist and cartoonist Colin Cotterill.
