Overview

Travel with the ancient sage Lao Tzu in this wonderful adventure story set in an ancient Chinese border city. Not only an engaging novel, Nine Nights with the Taoist Master is a landmark book that cracks the code of the secret mystical teaching hidden inside Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching.

For over the last 2500 years, many scholars have tried to interpret the Tao Te Ching. Unfortunately, they all failed to capture its true essence. Master Liao provides the important missing link based on the oral tradition of generations of Taoist wisdom masters.

Written into this exciting novel are keys to secret knowledge previously reserved for Taoist masters and their disciples. Additionally, Master Liao's translation of the Tao Te Ching is given in its entirety and indexed to key story lines.

Anyone interested in eastern philosophy, mysticism, ancient Chinese culture, and self-discovery will enjoy the story of Nine Nights with the Taoist Master.

Editorial Reviews

Walter Hayley
"...Nine Nights with the Taoist Master is unique and insightful, highly entertaining, likely provocative, and well worth the read. I usually juggle several books at once, moving back and forth as the mood hits me or as boredom takes over. But once I began reading this, I set other readings aside. It was that engrossing...There are many important lessons to be had here, and I plan to reread this book. Nine Nights with the Taoist Master will be one of the books I return to time and time again."

Meet the Author

From the age of twelve, Waysun Liao studied with a wandering Taoist and in a Taoist temple until he became a full Taichi and Tao master. Considered one of the world's foremost authorities on traditional Taoist wisdom and Chi arts, he is the founder and master of one of the oldest Taichi centers in North America, which is located in Oak Park, Illinois. He is one of the few remaining Tao masters carrying and transmitting the ancient oral traditions concerning the power of Tao, and shares his wisdom with students across the world.

Master Liao is the author of several books, including Tao: The Way of God, Nine Nights with the Taoist Master, Chi: Discovering Your Life Energy, Essence of T'ai Chi, and the acclaimed T'ai Chi Classics, which has been translated into nine languages. In addition, he has compiled a complete Taichi learning system on DVD, preserving the ancient temple teachings on moving meditation, the Tao, and internal energy development.
