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.

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.

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? 😉

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…

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!

If you’re at all interested in the Tao then this is a must. The author takes a passage and then gives an interpretation. It really does give an interesting perspective every day.

If you want to follow up your I Ching readings, this is the perfect book for it. I bought it for my computer and Kindle, and am not sorry. My purchase is fairly recent, but the Daily Meditations is a wonderful addition to any reading of the I Ching, and you don’t have to cast any coins or yarrow stalks to approach it. The Tao te Ching presents meditations on many topics, and will give you something to think about as you go through its 365 chapters, one for each day of the year.
