The Lieh-tzu is a collection of stories and philosophical musings of a sage of the same name who lived around the fourth century BCE. Lieh-tzu's teachings range from the origin and purpose of life, the Taoist view of reality, and the nature of enlightenment to the training of the body and mind, communication, and the importance of personal freedom. This distinctive translation presents Lieh-tzu as a friendly, intimate companion speaking directly to the reader in a contemporary voice about matters relevant to our everyday lives.

About the Author

Eva Wong is an independent scholar and a practitioner of the Taoist arts of the Pre-Celestial Way and Complete Reality lineages. She has written and translated many books on Taoism and related topics, including A Master Course in Feng-Shui; Tales of the Taoist Immortals; and Taoism: An Essential Guide.


Perhaps the best-known sacred texts of Taoism are the Tao Te Ching and the Chung Tzu. Yet the Lieh-Tzu is familiar to Taoists as a practical guide to the workings of everyday life. Although philosophic in its approach to the creation of the world, the Lieh-Tzu focuses primarily on matters like the nature and development of happiness, the emptiness of rank and wealth, and the value of trust and confidence. Wong, director of studies at the Fung Loy Kok Taoist Temple in Denver, offers a bright and lively translation that captures the essential insights of the Lieh-Tzu. Recommended primarily for academic and large public libraries.
