The Tao Te Ching (sometimes rendered in recent works as Dao De Jing);roughly translated as The Book of the Way and its Virtue is an ancient Chinese scripture originally named the Laozi. The work is traditionally said to have been penned about 600 BC by the famous sage called Lao Zi (WG: Lao Tzu, "Old Master"), who is said to have been a record-keeper of the Emperor's Court of the Chou Dynasty; but authenticity, dates and authorship are still debated.
This short and obscure book is one of the most influential on Chinese philosophy and religion, especially through Taoism, but also through Buddhism, because this Indian religion shared many Taoist words and concepts before developing into Chinese Buddhism. (Indeed, upon first encountering it, Chinese scholars regarded Buddhism as merely a foreign equivalent of Taoism.)
Many Chinese artists, such as poets, painters, calligraphs and even gardeners have used this book as a source of inspiration. Its influence has also spread widely outside the Far East and, for now, it is probably the most translated Chinese book.
In the form we have it now, the Tao Te Ching is separated into two sections (Dao and De) and in 81 chapters. Each chapter is rather short, using few characters to express in a poetic way ideas that are not always clear. Some chapters could have three or more readings, from individual wisdom to advices aimed at a king, through medical recipies.
