Episode Summary

EDIT
Stephen Mitchell: The Second Book of the Tao
AIRED:
The most widely translated book in world literature after the Bible is Lao-tzu's Tao Te Ching, or Book of the Way, the classic manual on the art of living. Following his extraordinarily successful translation of the Tao Te Ching, renowned scholar Stephen Mitchell delivers The Second Book of the Tao.Drawn from the work of Lao-tzu's disciple Chuang-tsu and Confucius's grandson Tsu-ssu, it offers Western readers precious new lessons in the Tao.Mitchell has selected the freshest, clearest teachings from these two great students of the Tao to reveal the poetry, depth, and humor of the original texts, with vivid new clarity. Alongside each translated passage, Mitchell includes his own commentary; his meditations and risky reimagining of the original texts creat a book that is both a companion volume and an anti-manual to the Tao Te Ching.Stephen Mitchell's many books also include Gilgamesh, The Gospel According to Jesus, Bhagavad Gita, The Book of Job, and Meetings with the Archangel.moreless
