Publisher Comments:

Place the word Tao
Into your heart.
Use no other words.

The Tao is constantly moving, the path that all life and the whole universe takes. There is nothing that is not part of it—harmonious living is to know and to move with the Tao—it is a way of life, the natural order of things, a force that flows through all life.

365 Tao is a contemporary book of meditations on what it means to be wholly a part of the Taoist way, and thus to be completely in harmony with oneself and the surrounding world.

Deng Ming-Dao is the author of eight books, including The Living I Ching, Chronicles of Tao, Everyday Tao, and Scholar Warrior. His books have been translated into fifteen languages. He studied qigong, philosophy, meditation, and internal martial arts with Taoist master Kwan Saihung for thirteen years, and with two other masters before that.

Synopsis:

< P> Umbrella, light, landscape, sky& ndash; < /P> < P> There is no language of the holy. < /P> < P> The sacred lies in the ordinary. < /P> < P> This treasury of life& ndash; enhancing daily readings turns a wise Taoist light on every facet of life. Each daily entry with a one& ndash; word title and its Chinese character in elegant calligraphy. < /P> < P> A brief, poetic aphorism provides the theme, followed by a clear, insightful mediation on the day's Taoist principle. < /P>

Synopsis:

This explanation of Taoism avoids the use of Chinese and technical terms, even such well-known terms as yin and yang. Each meditation included in this book begins with a one-word title and its Chinese character, the number of the meditation, and a brief poetic aphorism. Each meditation illustrates a single Taoist principle in natural imagery. An appendix of months and days aids readers who want to read one prayer each day.

Synopsis:

"Bark, George," says George's mother, and George goes: "Meow," which definitely isn't right, because George is a dog.

And so is his mother, who repeats, "Bark, George." And George goes, "Quack, quack."

What's going on with George? Find out in this hilarious new picture book from Jules Feiffer.
