Lao Tzu, the legendary author of the Tao Te Ching , is also credited with the authorship of the Hua Hu Ching , which embodies some of his later teachings. During a time of political turmoil in the fourteenth century, all copies of this work were banned and ordered to be burned. Thus, few if any complete and accurate manuscripts exist today.

Overview

Lao Tzu, the legendary author of the Tao Te Ching , is also credited with the authorship of the Hua Hu Ching , which embodies some of his later teachings. During a time of political turmoil in the fourteenth century, all copies of this work were banned and ordered to be burned. Thus, few if any complete and accurate manuscripts exist today. Fortunately, the complete teachings of the Hua Hu Ching have been preserved through the oral transmission of generation after generation of Taoist masters to their disciples. In this book, Master Ni, heir to that orally transmitted wisdom, offers a superlative rendering of this reassured teaching.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Many Western spiritual seekers have found entrance into the perplexing and peaceful philosophies of Eastern thought through the rivers of the Tao Te Ching. Now the principles of Taoism may be more fully experienced through an immersion in these dialogs between Lao Tzu and an unnamed Chinese prince. As in the Tao Te ching, Lao Tzu emphasizes the impermanence of all things and the integration of the spirit with the Tao. The collection is marked by graceful translation and lyric prose. Even so, only libraries that want to build an exhaustive world religions collection will want to purchase this book.
