Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For the first time in one volume—an extraordinary spiritual odyssey of the making of the Taoist master Kwan Saihung. Born into a wealthy family in a remote province of China, Kwan defies his parents' wishes and enters into the rigorous and mysterious discipline of Taoist practice. Renamed "Little Butterfly" by his Taoist masters, he survives the upheaval of the Japanese occupation, and the later the Chinese Revolution, all the while becoming adept in the Taoist arts. Eventually his inner and outer journey lead him to America, where he becomes a Golden Gloves boxer and martial arts instructor.

Part adventure, part parable, Chronicles of Tao travels through a labyrinth of enigmatic Taoist practice, marital arts discipline, and international adventure.

Synopsis:

An introduction to Taoism as chronicled in the secret life of a Taoist master. This book gathers Deng Ming-Dao's three-volume biography and history of China in the 20th century.

Synopsis:

A guide to freeing ourselves from the inappropriate and crippling behaviors that sabotage our success.

Synopsis:

For the first time in one volume--the odyssey of the secret life of a Taoist master.
