Hua Hu Ching: The Unknown Teachings of Lao Tzu

  1. Lao Tzu Chinese pinyin L oz Wade Giles Laosi also Laozi, Lao Tse, Lao Tu, Lao Tsu, Laotze, Laosi, Lao Zi, Laocius, Lao Ce, and other variations was a mystic philosopher of ancient China, best known as the author of the Tao Te Ching often simply referred to as Laozi His association with the Tao Te Ching has led him to be traditionally considered the founder of Taoism pronounced as Daoism He is also revered as a deity in most religious forms of the Taoist religion, which often refers to Laozi as Taishang Laojun, or One of the Three Pure Ones Laozi translated literally from Chinese means old master or old one , and is generally considered honorific.According to Chinese tradition, Laozi lived in the 6th century BCE Historians variously contend that Laozi is a synthesis of multiple historical figures, that he is a mythical figure, or that he actually lived in the 5th 4th century BCE, concurrent with the Hundred Schools of Thought and Warring States Period As a result of being a a central figure in Chinese culture, both nobility and common people claim Lao Tzu in their lineage.

  1. Completely unknown, I think, but a terrific companion to the Tao Te Ching It clarifies and elucidates and reinforces We are lucky to have this other collection of Lao Tzu s sayings, and this translation is a good one.

  2. I savor this book, along with several other books of poetry by Rumi, Kabir and Hafiz each morning Brian Walker has translated Lao Tzu s sayings well Each one is like a flower that blooms on reflection.

  3. Most people who have heard of Lao Tzu know him through his book the Tao Te Ching, a fundamental Taoist text The authorship and history of the Tao Te Ching is still being debated And so it is also the case for the Hua Hu Ching which is also often attributed to Lao Tzu The text has come down to us largely through oral tradition although fragments, although a partial manuscript was discovered in a cave in China.In 1979 the first English translation by Hua Ching Ni of the Hua Hu Ching was published [...]

  4. The story on this book is that it represents a collection of Lao Tzu s oral teachings Since the original Tao Te Ching was also supposed to have been dictated by Lao Tzu before he left for the hills, I m not sure what the difference is Nonetheless, these apparently additional writings are wonderful for students of Lao Tzu to further their understanding of the Tao They add simple ideas of how to live your life in harmony with the Tao, and in that they do seem to ring true.

  5. I certainly liked this translation better than The Complete Works of Lao Tzu Tao Teh Ching Hua Hu Ching Unfortunately, like Ni with his translation, Walker does not give much of an introduction making clear his translation choices, so it is not possible to take what I read here and compare it to what I have read in other texts translated by other people And like Ni, he does not deal with the history of the Hua Hu Ching I think the possibility of fraud in the origin of a text is important I know [...]

  7. The Tao Te Ching is recognized as Lao Tzu only book, however, there is a collection his oral teachings recorded in a book called the Hua Hu Ching This version translated by Brain Walker is made up of 81 teachings on the subject of attaining enlightenment and mastery through the Tao It is a compact book but filled with much insight and thought provoking teachings.

  8. A consensus of scholars indicates this was probably not done by Lao tzu, but was written during the 3rd century AD during the imperial debates between Taoists and Buddhists In any case, a decent companion to the Tao Te Ching.

  10. I found this book sitting on my mom s bookshelf What a delightful treasure Really poignant teachings that are described in impactful words I actually think I might like it better than the actual tao te ching.
