Introduction to the Dao

The book begins with the author’s account of her trip to China, where she met with a Daoist spiritual master. The subjects they discussed are elaborated upon in subsequent chapters, and illustrated with quotations from Chinese Daoist classics, such as the Daodéjing (Tao te Ching), Zhuangzi (Chuang Tzu), Huainanzi, and other literature. Themes include: the Dao as the spiritual realm of non-being and all-pervading divine presence; the dé as the Dao manifested in the creation; how to live humbly in accord with Dao; the concept of wu-wei, or “doing without doing”; cultivating the Dao through inner meditation; the vegetarian diet and the balance of nature; the balance of yin and yang; reclaiming one’s “original nature” by removing the dust from one’s heart; and the need for the “perfect man” or living teacher to serve as the human example.

Responsibility of the Customer

If an order is shipped by us but is returned back to us by the courier company or postal authorities due to any of the reasons listed below, the customer will be responsible to pay the return shipping charges:

  • Customer refuses to accept the parcel
  • Customer refuses to pay any additional import duties/fees levied in their country
  • Incorrect address/contact details provided by customer
  • Non-availability of customer to receive the parcel after repeated delivery attempts
A COVID surcharge of $15 will be levied on all orders under $30. This is due to the closure and/or reduced services of the postal systems in many countries due to the coronavirus pandemic. This has caused an overall unreliability of the global postal system, which formerly provided low-cost shipping.
