ISBN 978-1-906787-28-4 The written sources of Chinese Wisdom, in the form of philosophy, poetry, reflections on nature, sacred texts and secular literature, are among the oldest texts in the world. With inspiring writings from Taoism and Chan (parents of Zen) and Confucianism, the coverage is broad. Voices heard include Chuang Tzu, Lao-Tzu, Lin Yutang and Confusius; there are enlightening passages from the Tao Te Ching, the I Ching, the Book of Rites, and The Gateless Gate. Ranging in character from the urbane, practical, social and political to the sublimely abstract, mystical and enigmatic, this ancient literature reflects profound maturity of thought. The anthology offers techniques for living that are still relevant to the modern age ��� at the same time recapturing for us our vital sense of wonder.
