  • grammatical and interpretive notes on individual terms and verses; * a unique commentary on the first verse, which represents a complete spiritual teaching in itself; and

Star's translation and the included tables, by verse, make this classic come alive for the novice and the experienced user of the Tao Te Ching. The manual is structured to allow the user to explore the more subtle and powerful possbilities of the original "Book of the Way and Its power" A must have for the serious seeker.
