In eighty-one brief chapters, Lao-Tzu's 'Tao Te Ching, ' or 'Book of the Way, ' provides advice that imparts balance and perspective, a serene and generous spirit, and teaches us how to work for the good with the effortless skill that comes from being in accord with the Tao-the basic principle of the universe.
