About the Author


The traditional founder of Taoism, one of the three great religious and philosophical traditions originated in China, Lao Tzu (meaning “ Old Master” ) was a mystic Chinese philosopher and writer who lived during the Eastern Zhou Dynasty. Though the historical authenticity of Lao Tzu is not certain, according to tradition, he is believed to have been a slightly older contemporary of Confucius. He is reckoned a scholar who worked as a record keeper in the court of Zhou in the sixth century B.C., and is best known as the author of Tao Te Ching, a fundamental text of Taoism. Translated roughly as “ the way of integrity,” Tao Te Ching contains political advice for rulers; lessons on leading a balanced life; guidance on self-knowledge, peace, humility, virtue, morality; and common wisdom. Written more than two thousand years ago, this treatise is one of the most translated works of world literature. Its ancient wisdom still stands relevant in modern times.
