Tao Te Ching (sometime translated Dao De Jing or Daode Jing) means "The Way to Enlightenment Book." Tao means "The Way" and was the "The Way" long before that group existed in 1st century Israel. Te means enlightenment or virtue. Ching is book. There is a religious and non-religious form of Tao. Tao Te Ching is a non-religious set of meditations to help you gain insight into the world around you. You don't need a master for Tao Te Ching. The goal is to master yourself. There are 170 meditations. I'll try to post a new one daily, but I may miss.
