Publisher's Comments

The Hua Hu Ching, a virtually unknown work of Lao Tzu has, like the Tao Te Ching, enormous power and impact. A collection of texts from the same period as the Tao Te Ching, it is a road map for those who seek deeper personal insight and who want to live in accordance with the Tao, the eternal nature.

Lau Tzu's profound teachings, as recorded in the Hua Hu Ching, are the perfect companion to the Tao Te Ching. Expertly translated by Brian Walker, each of the eighty-one teachings in the Hua Hu Ching is rich with wisdom, mystery, and startling enlightenment.

Lao Tzu was one of the great philosophers of ancient China, and is a central figure in Taoism. According to Chinese tradition, Lao Tzu lived in the 6th century BC. Historians debate whether Lao Tzu is a combination of multiple historical figures, a mythical figure, or an actual person.

Brian Walker is the author of contemporary poetic presentations of the I Ching and Tao Te Ching, The Crazy Dog Guide to Lifetime Happiness, and The Crazy Dog Guide to Happier Work.

"The Hua Hu Ching is a collection of eighty-one lessons for attaining enlightenment and peace of mind. When the book was banned in China, the lessons were passed by word of mouth from teacher to student ... Beautiful ... inspirational."-- Weekend Edition, National Public Radio
