  • Discussion of Tao Te Ching: Part 2 (4 Part Series)

    2022-01-22  12:00 - 13:00

    Daughter of Sunset Lodge, Vancouver BC
    Open to the public

    Tao Te Ching is one of the most influential spiritual texts. Aleister Crowley considered Taoism closely akin to Thelema, and explained the full meaning of the OTO system as the “Way of Tao.” In this four-part series, we’ll start each seminar with an introduction, we’ll discuss Thelemic correlations, we’ll read a passage of the Tao Te Ching (perhaps comparing different translations), and for those who wish we can choose a teaching or aphorism from the Tao Te Ching and apply it as a resolution for the upcoming week.

    This week we will focus on the social application of the tenets from the text. ("The Daode Jing: A Guide" Part One, Section Four)

    A text of the Tao Te Ching is available online: http://www2.hawaii.edu/~freeman/courses/phil394/Daodejing.pdf

    The Tao Te Ching is the small text to the left, and on the right can be found notes.

    It’s also available to purchase as Tao Te Ching, introduction by Jacob Needleman, translation by Gia-Fu Feng, Jane English, and Toinette Lippe.


    A translation by Crowley of the Tao Te Ching, including his important introduction, is also available online: https://www.sacred-texts.com/oto/lib157.htm


    We’ll also be using “The Daode Jing: A Guide” by Livia Kohn as the source text for introductions of this topic.
