The Tao Te Ching was written in China 2,500 years ago and is one of the most translated books in the world. It serves as the basis for the philosophy of Taoism. It teaches that there is one undivided truth at the root of all things. When translated, it literally means:

Tao: the way
Te: strength/script
Ching: scripture


The tao that can be told
is not the eternal Tao
The name that can be named
is not the eternal Name.

The unnamable is the eternally real.
Naming is the origin
of all particular things.
