Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“The way that can be spoken is not the eternal way.” The famous first line of the Dao De Jing (6th century BCE) is the beginning of a generations-long dialogue among Chinese sages about the meaning and purpose of life. Confucian & Taoist Wisdom introduces readers to that dialogue in poetical excerpts from the writings of Laozi, Confucius, Mencius, and many others. Divided into key subject areas (Family, Education, Warfare, The Dao, Government, Sagehood, and Death) and illustrated with beautiful photographs that emphasize the oneness of man and nature, this richly produced anthology will inspire all who seek answers to lifes eternal questions.

Synopsis:

He is the award-wining author of a novel, several short stories and radio drama for the BBC World Service. Completed novels are looking for a literary agent. His non-Fiction includes, A Dictionary of Religions and Secular Faiths, The Maya Prophecies for 2012, The Maya, 2012 - The End of the World or the Dawn of Enlightenment? The Maya Prophecies for 2012 - The Message and the Vision (Illustrated), The Five-minute Philosopher, and anthologies of Buddhist, Chinese and Celtic texts. The God Enigma, will be published shortly.

Synopsis:

Solala Towler draws upon his many years as a student of Taoism, an instructor of qigong, and his travels in China leading tours to the sacred mountains of Taoism, as well as his fifteen years as the editor of the only English language Taoist magazine, The Empty Vessel, to bring a freshness and an open mind and heart to this ancient work of Taoist wisdom.
