Place the word Tao
Into your heart.
Use no other words.
The Tao is constantly moving, the path that all life and the whole universe takes. There is nothing that is not part of it—harmonious living is to know and to move with the Tao—it is a way of life, the natural order of things, a force that flows through all life.
365 Tao is a contemporary book of meditations on what it means to be wholly a part of the Taoist way, and thus to be completely in harmony with oneself and the surrounding world.
Deng Ming-Dao is the author of eight books, including The Living I Ching, Chronicles of Tao, Everyday Tao, and Scholar Warrior. His books have been translated into fifteen languages. He studied qigong, philosophy, meditation, and internal martial arts with Taoist master Kwan Saihung for thirteen years, and with two other masters before that.

A fantastic book for anyone interested in Taoism and meditation.
I have been into numerous Asian martial arts (Judo, Jujitsu, Karate-Do, and Kenjutsu) and healing arts (Tai Chi, Qigong and Reiki) for more than fifty years and I recently purchased this amazing 380 page soft book (365 Tao Dailey Meditations by Deng Ming-Da) for a bargain price on Amazon.
The journey of humanity is the journey from ignorance to enlightenment!
From “365 Tao” by Deng Ming-Dao:
The finest book on Taoism since the Tao te Ching
I have had this book in my collection since it was first published. Well, not actually this particular book, pages and cover and all. Paper books come and go with changes in life — new work, new homes, new responsibilities, new leisure, new joys and concerns — but Ming-Dao Deng’s calm but not dispassionate collection of observations is my staple. Its availability as an e-book only makes it better. The day-by-day format works perfectly on my smartphone. It somehow has a more lasting presence, not being dependent on the physical necessity of a paper page. I’m definitely pro-book, but some wisdoms, like this one, travel better (in my experience) than conventional books I like the relatively recent new cover, also. It well captures the sense of 365 Tao. My delight is complete — and as a Taoist, I am fulfilled. My only question: what to do in a leap year? Does the Tao mysteriously grow another day? 😉
Poetic and insightful
This is my go-to book for reading before meditation. I’ve owned it longer than I’ve been married (21 years), and I had to replace my copy a few years ago because the old one was falling apart from use. All of which is meant to say, I love this book! I can’t imagine how Ming-Dao Deng managed to include so much poetry, inspiration and wisdom in one small volume. I recommend it highly. Even though I’ve been turning to this book for many years, I continue to find fresh and relevant insights.
Morning Contemplations !!!
What a book. I’m not gonna lie – I read this paperback in under 2 weeks. First, I read one page and suddenly found myself reading about 5-10 pages. Then I took a break — looked in the back where I realized — the author has laid out the book so that you can read one page a day, every day for a year = 365 days (that’s if you want). However, after the first 5 pages — I was hooked!!! I started reading about 30-40 pages a day. This volume is simple, straightforward and retains a clean-cut writing style, top to bottom. What’s more, after about 50 pages – I ordered Ming-Dao Deng’s other book “Everyday Tao”. I’m sure it will be a worthy follow up…
Best Daily Meditation Book in My Collection
I own quite of few daily meditation books and this is by far my favorite. I loved studying the Tae Te Ching when in college many years ago. The author of this book, Ming-Dao Deng, has made the mediations based on the verses much more accessible to the Western mind. I find each page to contain profound wisdom and purchased a second copy for my young adult nephew who is always searching for truth.
Thoughtful daily meditations. My wife and I get something …
Thoughtful daily meditations. My wife and I get something inspiration nearly every day. We’re always tempted to read ahead, but it’s more delightful to unwrap the new message by waiting for each day.
This is a thought provoking book, a life changing book. If you meditate, your process will deepen. If you don’t, you will want to and should, to ponder the thoughts and messages so beautifully written.
A wonderful, inspirational book for learning the way of Tao.
I had this book recommended to me, after I inquired about which book was best for learning the way of Tao. I, now, am highly recommending this book to you, and everyone I can! It’s wonderful, and something that calms, teaches, and inspires me every day. I have to feel it’s one of the best!
