Grand Master Alex Anatole
Since Lao Tzu first introduced the world to Taoism more than two
millennia ago, his elegant teachings have been shrouded in mystery and
interpreted in many different ways. Finally, The Truth of Tao explains
the secrets of this powerful philosophical system in clear, concise
language that everyone can understand. Grand Master Alex Anatole takes
readers on a journey of enlightenment, revealing the confusion inherent
in Western and Eastern cultural values, clarifying Lao Tzuís principles,
and showing how to apply these principles in everyday situations.
Taoismís elegant system logically unfolds, unifying the physical, mental
and spiritual realms until ultimately the purpose of life is revealed.
