There are dozens, perhaps hundreds of translations of the Tao te Ching, the root sacred text of Taoism, one of the three traditional religions of China. This one, written by an ex-missionary who appears to have had Theosophical leanings, includes extensive notes on similarities with other religions, primarily Christianity, but also Buddhism and Hinduism. This gives a new way of looking at this multi-faceted text, which has always had appeal to mystics of all persuasions.
This book has 143 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1905.
Production notes: This ebook of The Tao Teh King: A Short Study in Comparative Religion was published by Global Grey in 2018.
