The book: "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 BC) comprising the cream of the 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." (...)
This book comprises 22 lectures on the first 8 Chs. of the book.
translated from
Hindi : Tao Upanishad, Bhag 1 (ताओ उपनिषद, भाग एक). Translator: Dolli Didi.
