These inspirational and poetic teachings, written by a modern Taoist master, will be a compelling source of reflection for all those acquainted with the Tao-te Ching, the Analects of Confucius, the Buddhist sutras, or the Zen poetry of Han Shan, Basho, and Ryokan. Loy Ching-Yuen stresses the importance of practice rather than speech or ideals. Viewing the heart as the center of right-mindedness and self-empowerment, he teaches benevolence, humility, and meditation in a refreshing approach to living simply and honestly in the world.
