The Tao Te Ching is the premiere Taoist text. After 2500 years it is still fresh and alive and relevant. A guide to living well, a source of profound wisdom, a text to mediate throughout our lives. Since 1972 Cloud Hands has devoted itself to bridging the gap between East and West, to bringing the wisdom of the Tao to life. The Cloud Hands Edition combines historical accuracy with clarity and the poetry of Lao Tzu.
