Dao De Jing
Welcome to Dao Is Open
Laozi's Dao De Jing includes my own translation and commentaries of the Dao De Jing.
- Guodian Laozi. On each page you'll find photographic copies of the Guodian Bamboo Slips with the Traditional and Simplified Chinese for each character, the Pinyin and Wade/Giles spellings and the English definitions.
-Comparison Chart shows the various Chinese versions of the text.
Zhuangzi (Chuang Tzu) contains my own translation of the text, and....
- a Glossary / Index of the people and places mentioned in the book
- ZZ Links a list of helpful internet links and books about Zhuangzi.
I've written the Romanized spellings of Chinese words on this site in PinYin, which is the accepted spelling for Chinese words throughout most of the world. I've occasionally included the Wade/Giles spellings in parenthesis after the PinYin spellings, since many people are more familiar with that spelling of the Chinese words.
Thus: Dao is the same as (Tao).*
