Lao Tzu (LaoZi), the author of Tao Te Ching (Daode Jing), is a philosopher in Spring and Autumn period and the founder of Taoist school. According to the biography of The Record of the Great Historian, Lao Tzu surnames Li, first names Er and styles Dan. Some Taoist books take Dan as his posthumous name and Boyang as his honorific name. Some scholars say Lao is his family name, Dan is his first name and his honorific name is Boyang. He was born in some place close to Luyi County, Henan Province. His official position in Zhou's court is on the duty of both the imperial library and archive bureau. Lao Tzu departed from Zhou when he witnessed the elapse of imperial power. It is said that he left the five- thousand-word book which latterly named after him at the request of the pass keeper Yin Xi at Hangu Pass where leads to the Silk Road.

In Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu established a philosophy centered on Tao. He refers Tao as the extraordinary Way, which transcends but indwells everything. Tao is the origin of the world and Tao is preexistent. "The Tao gives birth to the one, and the one gives birth to the two, the two gives birth to the three, and three gives birth to the myriad of things." Related to Tao, Te is the manifestations and realizations of Tao in the world including the humans.

Lao Tzu presents his thought in a style of dialectics; he tends to articulate Tao in twin categories, for example, the beauty and ugliness, blessing and disaster, softness and hardness, yin and yang, etc. His principles, including respect of nature, striving for inner purity, and reduction of personal desire, have been important idealistic goals for Chinese people for tens of centuries.

After the religious tradition was introduced at the turn between the first and the second century, Lao Tzu has been venerated as the Lord, and Tao Te Ching has been canonized and theologically expounded as the most important sutra.

Tao Te Ching has been reprinted and commented for formidable times in China. Furthermore, it has been translated most widely only second to the Bible in the modern world. It is taking up its influence on the globe today.

Let us join the pure, silent, natural, ethereal and beautiful tour of Tao Te Ching.
