"Tao-Teh-King" or The Way of Tao as it is called here, is a small book in 81 brief chapters by Lao-Tse ( 571 B.C. ) comprising the cream of experience of the sage.
Bhagwan Shree has rightly said,"It is true that what Lao-Tse has said is 2,500 years old; but in a sense, it is as new as the morning dew." The path is absolutely untouched, unused. The ancient sages revealed their knowledge, their philosophy in the form of maxims and seed-mantras. The teachings remind us of Kabir in his patronage of simplicity and mysteriousness of Life.
This book comprises 22 lectures on the first 8 Chs. of the book. Bhagwan Shree in his characteristic and inimitable and lucid exposition lays bare the secrets of The Way of Tao. Having absolute detachment and exclusive power of identifying himself with anyone, Bhagwan Shree lives the life of the sage Lao-Tse and reveals.
This is Part ONE OF THE WAY OF TAO- other parts will follow.
About the Aurhor
Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh :- For over a decade, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh has been captivating large audiences throughout India with his message about the Ultimate Experience of Enlightenment, which he says is possible for all.
A spiritual Master in various esoteric and religious traditions for many lives, he reveals that he has consciously taken birth in the modern age to teach mankind the science for inner transformation which is '' meditation'' , thereby hoping to avert the total atomic devastation toward which man's destructive instincts are leading him.
One of the few fully Enlightened Master alive in the world today, Bhagwan has devised new revolutionary meditation techniques, based on chaotic breathing and cathartic expression, which are suitable for modern man who has become too tense, suppressed and closed to be capable of successfully utilizing ancient yogic methods which were meant for a more relaxed age. Bhagwan's methods are designed to quickly awaken man's latent divine energy known as "Kundalini".
"I have come not to teach but to awaken. Surrender-and I will transform you. This is my promise," he reveals.
