Satsangs in Trimurti about Tao-te-ching from Lao tzu
Tuesday 24 - Sunday 29 March 2020
During these days, Naropa will lead us into the world of Tao.
We will be tasting the omnipresent Tao in the silence and peace of Trimurti.
The word “Tao” can be translated as “path”, “source” or “essence”.
Lao-Tzu is an extravagant 6th-century B.C. master and tradition informs us that it was a borderline patrol who made him write down Tao-Te-Ching. The patrol would not let him leave China until he entrusted his insights to the paper. Then he disappeared in the mountains without a trace…
Lao-Tzu shows us in Tao Te Ching that the truth can be neither articulated nor described. Nothing is good or bad and all ambition and self-importance are pointless. The only thing that matters is to see Tao and live it.
“Tao that can be named is no true Tao.”
Wu wei is the principle of non-doing (not to be understood as doing nothing!). Meditation means simply to be, in connection with nature.
“Find the supreme emptiness.
Keep the deepest silence.”
Taoism was born from a tradition with Lao-Tzu and Chaung-Tzu as the founders.
They later connected with Buddhism, which brought Bodhidharma to China. This, in turn, led to the Chan/Zen tradition emerging.
