Présentation de l'éditeur

In this beautifully illustrated offering of ancient wisdom, Deng Ming-Dao shares the secrets of the spiritual path handed down to him by Kwan Saihung, his Taoist master, as well as by herbalists, martial artists, and other practitioners of the ancient arts. Deng shows how Taoist philosophy and practice may be integrated into contemporary Western lifestyles for complete physical, mental, and spiritual health. He provides an abundance of philosophical and practical information about hygiene, diet, sexuality, physical exercise, meditation, medicine, finding one's purpose in life, finding the right teacher, death, and transcendence.

Biographie de l'auteur

Deng Ming-Dao is the author of eight books, including 365 Tao, The Living I Ching, Chronicles of Tao, Everyday Tao, and Scholar Warrior. His books have been translated into fifteen languages. He lives in San Francisco.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Just how does one properly practice Taoism? Here's how... 26 août 2000
Par H. Powell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book is a remarkably comprehensive guide for the modern practicing Taoist. It stands alone among the numerous volumes published on this pragmatic religion/philosophy for this very reason: it is not just another commentary on the works of Lao Tzu and Chuang Tzu, but rather a treatise on how the actual living philosophy has been applied to daily life for over 2500 years. Deng Ming Dao has accomplished a bit of a miracle here, for he has synthesized an admittedly confusing tangle of ancient Chinese Taoist traditions (many of them contradictory) and has presented the essence of the ancient wisdom and practices for the contemporary reader. Deng, like most Taoists, is a realist: he urges the practitioner to attain a level of absolute and "effortless" mastery (Wu Wei) in whatever endeavor he/she undertakes in this life ON THIS PHYSICAL PLANE. This is accomplished through persistent practice and daily focus...Taoism is NOT about "going with the flow", but rather about following the path of the heart without giving in to societal pressures or feelings of doubt. The Way has typically been walked by the "rugged individualists" of the world, NOT those who follow the herd. This is the uncompromising quest for perfection, and this perfection can only be attained if the individual is healthy in mind, body, and spirit, all of which Deng sees as being totally interdependent: one with a sick body can not have a healthy mind and one with an underdeveloped mind can not benefit from a healthy body. Hence, the intellectual must not have disdain for physical workouts and the athlete must not shun books. Indeed, roughly half of the book concerns itself with physical health: herbology and qigong breathing/stretching exercises are lucidly described. In regard to herbal remedies, Deng stresses prevention of maladies through the use of herbs as opposed to their uses as cures for diseases (in which case, he tells us, we must naturally turn to the aid of licensed physicians). I should note here that you will probably need to order many of the herbs that Deng reccommends through mail order if you do not live in an area with a "Chinatown" (addresses for mail order herb outfits are provided). The Way of the scholar warrior is a difficult one and it is not for everybody, but for those who wish to "be all that they can be" and who are willing to "just do it" (isn't this the whole essence of the Tao Te Ching?), I highly reccommend this book as a ready guide.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A very well written and thoroughly-researched book 7 juillet 2000
Par A. A. Spence - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Yes. I'm a Taoist, at 13 years of age. I buy every book I see on this subject, and I bought this one. And let me tell you, it was a good decision. It's very interesting from a philosophical standpoint as well as spiritual and a religious standpoint. Deng-Ming Dao uses simple language and mixes in with complex and abstract concepts, making a fascinating and compelling book in Taoism.
The book starts off with an introduction giving the reader the basics of the concepts and ideas that s/he will learn in the book. Even the introduction is intriguing! After the reader has read the introduction, s/he gets into the nitty-gritty, the history of the Scholar Warrior! This chapter is probably the most interesting chapter in the entire book. It tells of how old Chinese men used to strive for the elite status of the Scholar Warrior. Much like Japan's Samurai, Scholar Warriors were the elite class of society. They were the `perfect' ones. And that is what Deng-Ming Dao is trying to help us readers to learn, to be the elite. The next 3 chapters are spent on T'ai C'hi, which I'm not happy about because Deng-Ming Dao should know that the only way to learn T'ai C'hi and C'hi K'ung (Qi Gong) is with a teacher or through videos, because you can't be looking at the book while doing it. There is also a section on healthy foods you can prepare. The second half of the book is spent on the philosophy of Taoism. I guess you could say this section puts the Scholar in Scholar Warrior. This second section is very interesting and was the part I spend most of my time looking over when I look back at this book. The ending drops in to more deep `mind stuff', and that didn't interest me too much, but anyway, it's a fun set up!
The one think I noticed about this book is that it's not a book centered primarily on Taoism. It's more a mixture of Taoism, Martial Arts, and Alternative Medicine. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but I just wanted to point that out for all you people who think this is just some Taoism book.
Anyway, I hope you like it!
A.A.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A must have for the severely confused. 31 octobre 2000
Par C.M.Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Are you an aspiring Taoist who just can't seem to get past the horrors of bad translation and esoteric texts filled with unexplained terms? If so, this is the book for you. Filled with helpful tips on exercise, diet, and the underlying themes of this wonderful belief system, it is truly one of the most informative books on the subject I have ever had the pleasure to read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 great intro to practical taoism 15 octobre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Here's one person writing about Taoism who doesn't try to make it all "sweetess and light." Almost all the way through Deng is completely credible. The stretching and qigong exercises are great, too. More info on meditation would have helped, but that's the book's only shortcoming.

This book won't please the heads-in-the-clouds New Agers, but so what?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very, Very, Very Good 27 octobre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Whether you are seeking a new path in life or simply want to learn about the history and practice of Taoism in a not-quite-textbook context, this is the book for you. Written with sensitivity, grace, and insight, this is a book to read and read again.
