Do Nothing and Do Everything: An Illustrated New Taoism

Do Nothing and Do Everything: An Illustrated New Taoism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The power of the Tao has accompanied the author through his journey as pupil during the Chinese Cultural Revolution to professor at an American liberal arts college. In Do Nothing and Do Everything he applies the ideas of Wu Wei (do nothing) and Wu Bu Wei (do everything) to modern life. Do Nothing and Do Everything is supplemented by observations of American and Chinese life. Rich and humorous illustrations convey the subtle ideas that go beyond language and are re-created in the same style as the ones the author draws impromptu on the blackboard in his classes. This introduction to ancient Taoism is conveyed in a lighthearted and humorous manner. This illustrated new Taoism will answer the widespread thirst for an alternative approach to life, and a longing for health, tranquility, and spiritual liberation.

Book News Annotation:

Filled with drawings by the author and quotes from Chinese philosophers dating back to Lao Tzu himself, this appealing volume provides a clear, practical method for learning how to live in western society according to taoist principles. Zhao (Burton and Lily Professor of Chinese, Carleton College, Minn.) bases his book on a course on tai chi and taoism in modern life he's taught since 1997.
