The Tao Te Ching: A Translation of Translations


"Words they say are not Nature / Fragments they say are not a book / These are Eternal natures / In them, symbols are numbered / ... / The mystery is a many-folded path"
So begins this edition of the Tao Te Ching.
Nathan Coppedge, previously the author of Masterful Zen and Sufi Koans and a translation of the Mandate of Heaven, here presents his highly original translation of the Tao Te Ching, interpreted with much thought from multiple pre-existing translations. Considerable insight and additional thought has been acquired for this formidable text, one of the greatest of the ancient literary and philosophical classics.

It can be found on Amazon HERE.
