LAO TZE: THE ETERNAL TAO
with Mr. John Li
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13th, 2018
12 East 79th Street, NYC
Returning to the source is Stillness, is called Returning to Life.
Returning to Life is Eternal, knowing the Eternal is called Realization.
Not knowing the Eternal, misfortune is foolishly created.
— Lao Tze
What is in a name, and how is the universe governed?
Both questions are answered in the first verse of the Tao Te Ching and illuminated in the subsequent 80 verses. They are reflections of knowledge that everyone is equipped to verify. What experiences might be reflected in these verses? How do they accord with our own?
Join us to explore how the ancient wisdom held in the Tao Te Ching can be translated into experience as we penetrate the deeper meanings expressed in this ageless Chinese poetry.
The evening’s talk will draw upon selected verses based on new translations and root meanings of chosen Chinese texts.
Tickets are $25.00, which includes light refreshments, and are available by clicking here or by visiting the Registration Office on the 1st Floor of 12 East 79th Street, New York NY 10075.
