The Tao te Ching of Lao Tzu is among the wisest books ever written and one of the greatest gifts ever given to humankind. In the handful of pages that make up the Tao te Ching, there is an answer to each of life’s questions, a solution to every predicament, a balm for any wound. It is less a book than a living, breathing angel.

Brian Browne Walker’s contemporary translations of Taoist classics have received high marks for their simplicity, clarity, and accessibility. This beautiful and functional app, which you can read in a linear fashion like a book or receive random readings from, and which allows you to email any selection to a friend with the click of a button, will be a beloved friend for years.

You have made me very sad…

I bought the bundle all this wisdom from Asia… A few years ago and it was simply wonderful I started memorizing the towel but… this all went away with you last update I am totally blind and I use voice over… But with the recent update I can’t do anything on the screen zero zilch nothing I Up by tap back I can’t find any buttons I can try and get any voices this is worse than not axing it accessing it in the beginning or I could just go find something else but you gave me a rich dessert with brownies and ice cream and chocolate syrup and just when I was enjoying it you took it away I humbly ask on my old knees that you fix this problem for me in the other blind people 90% of which are Apple users or… Can you send me a link to the previous apps before this updated yours truly Thom

Great app! Some additional features would be nice

Love the app and the translation they used. I wish there was some way to bookmark, highlight, or favorite passages though, because I often have to sift through a number of chapters before finding the one I'm thinking of.
