The writings of Chuang Tzu stand alongside the Tao Te Chingas foundational classics of Taoism. Dating back to the fourth century BC, The Inner Chaptersis full of fantastical tales that both entertain and provide guidance on living a good life--a gigantic fish that becomes a bird, a cook who never sharpens his blade, a magical being who lives in the mountains, and more. This new luxury edition is distinguished by insightful commentary and superb photographs that convey in their wordless beauty the profound wisdom of Chuang Tzu's text.
Solala Towler draws upon his many years as a student of Taoism, an instructor of qigong, and his travels in China leading tours to the sacred mountains of Taoism, as well as his fifteen years as the editor of the only English language Taoist magazine, The Empty Vessel, to bring a fresh approach, and an open mind and heart, to this ancient work of Taoist wisdom.
