Gushen Grove Notebooks for the Dao De Jing

Chapters 1-20     Chapters 21-40     Chapters 41-60     Chapters 61-81



This is the current, February 20, 2017, Version 5.3, of the Chapter Index of the Tao Te Ching.  It was created by Michael P. Garofalo at the Valley Spirit Center, Gushen Grove, in Red Bluff, California.  This document has been online since 2010. 

I started this Tao Te Ching website project in 2010.  It was fascinating to learn how 81 Chapters have been written, selected, revised, retranslated, codified, rediscovered, reinterpreted, and modified since probably 500 BCE.  The Daodejing is now a standard part of Taoist lore, legends, scripture, stories, and inspiration.  The Tao Te Ching is standard reading for Taijiquan students, just as Pantajali's Yoga Sutra or The Upanishads are standard reading for Yoga students. 

I want to thank the Corning Union Elementary School District for employing me part-time, 24 hours per week during the academic school year, as either the District Librarian and/or the Technology and Media Services Supervisor from July of 1999 until June of 2016.  I also want to thank the various owners and managers of the Tehama Family Fitness Center in Red Bluff for employing me part-time from 2002 until 2016 as a instructor of yoga, tai chi chuan, gigong, mat pilates, spin cycling, Silver Sneakers, and as a personal fitness trainer.  All my web publishing costs average about $800 a year to stay online; but, this was easily covered by income since 2010.  I retired in  July of 2016 and moved from Red Bluff, California, to the City of Vancouver, State of Washington, in April of 2017.  I expect to continue to improve and develop this Tao Te Ching website for many more years.  Disk or thumb drive versions of the entire website and documents are available to scholars. 

I have prepared one webpage for each of the 81 Chapters of the Tao Te Ching (Dao De Jing), The Classic of the Way and Virtue, by Lao Tzu (Laozi). 

Each one of these 81 Daodejing webpage Chapters now includes over 25 English language translations for that Chapter, 5 translations into the Spanish language for that Chapter, the Chinese characters and the Wade-Giles and Hanyu Pinyin transliteration of the Mandarin words for that Chapter, 2 translations into the German language, and 1 translation into the French language. 

Each of the 81 Chapters includes detailed indexing for that Chapter, commentary, supplementary materials, recommended books, online resources, and more. 

Each Chapter webpage includes a Google Translate drop down menu. 

Each Friday, I present a post about one Chapter of the Tao Te Ching in my Cloud Hands Blog.  



As mentioned above, I have prepared one webpage for each of the 81 Chapters of the Tao Te Ching (Dao De Jing), The Classic of the Way and Virtue, by Lao Tzu (Laozi).  Each of these webpages now includes 25 different complete English language translations or creative interpretations or interpolations of that numbered Chapter.  Most of the English translations in each Chapter come from translations freely available in the public domain, from the over 140 English translations of the Daodejing now available online, and some of the Chapter's English translations or interpolations come from cited books in print and in my personal library.  I estimate that there are over 60 translations of the Dao De Jing from Chinese into other non-English languages that are now available online. 

The Chinese characters for each Chapter, and both a Wade-Giles and Hanyu Pinyin Romanized (i.e., Latin script) version of the Chapter are included on each of my webpages.  The Wade-Giles method for using the Roman (Latin) script to represent the sounds of Mandarin Chinese words was developed in 1892, and the Hanyu Pinyin method of Romanization was standardized in 1982 in the People's Republic of China.  For example, the Wade-Giles version of the title is "Tao Te Ching," while the Hanyu Pinyin version of the title is "Dao De Jing."

There is some variation in how the Chinese characters for a Chapter of the Tao Te Ching are arranged, ordered, punctuated, and presented on a webpage; so readers should consult the many excellent books and webpages cited on my webpages for alternative versions to my display of the Chinese characters and the corresponding line by line Wade-Giles and Pinyin Romanized translations.  I included some comments and notes about my style of displaying the Chinese characters of the Tao Te Ching on these 81 webpages.  I do not read, write or speak Chinese. 

There are 5 Spanish language translations for each Chapter, Spanish Terms in this index, and links to Spanish language resources about the Tao Te Ching.  I have very limited fluency in the Spanish language. 

A full index of the sources, both online and in print, for each English and Spanish language translator's version is provided.  Sources for the online and print Chinese-English language resources are also provided. 

Nearly all webpages now available online feature a specific translator's version of all 81 Chapters of the Tao Te Ching on a single webpage.  This arrangement makes it difficult to compare various translations of the same Chapter without switching between many different webpages. 

This website is unique in featuring a single webpage for each Chapter of the Tao Te Ching with many different translations (25+ English, 5+ Spanish, 2 Chinese, 2 German, and 1 French) for that specific Chapter on that single webpage.  It is very easy to compare different translations of the same Chapter with this arrangement.  Thus far, as of 3/29/2017, I've not found any other website that offers this advantageous arrangement with so many different translations presented.    

Sources for commentaries and related references are included on the webpage for each Chapter.  Suggestions for purchasing good books on the subject are provided on each webpage and in my reading list.  Each book graphic includes a imbedded hyperlink for purchasing the title. 

References and links to related subjects in Taoist mind-body arts, published online by Green Way Research or at Ripening Peaches: Taoist Studies and Practices, are provided.  A number of these webpages include my own interpolations of the Chapter, poems, and comments.  I have been practicing Tai Chi Chuan or Chi Kung since 1985, and have been reading Buddhist and Taoist and philosophical literature since 1962. 

I hope that enthusiasts of Taoist works will find this hypertext collection of translations of the 81 Chapters of the Tao Te Ching useful in their studies.  New readers of the Tao Te Ching will find many suggestions for wise and peaceful living in the varied translations and interpretations of this classic Chinese contribution to our world heritage.  Undoubtedly, some of Laozi's views are contradictory or vague or incorrect or impractical or antiquated.  No informed and wise wise person should consider any ancient text or scripture as inerrant or sacred or above criticism. 

Those fascinated by the process and implications of translating thoughts and ideas between different languages, and the implications of reinterpretation and reading, will find the many versions of a single Chapter quite interesting and revealing. 

Readers should keep in mind that the texts of the Tao Te Ching may have been a group of sayings from many Taoist adepts and philosophers, records of a school of thinkers, rather that the work of one person.  By 400 CE, Laozi was considered in the Taoist popular religion as an immortal, a messenger of the Gods, a divine person, an inspired revealer; therefore, worshippers believe he wrote the entire Tao Te Ching.  It is often said that Laozi was skilled at reading and writing, and was employed as a archivist and librarian before he left on an adventure to the Western regions, therefore it is not unlikely he could have penned many of the verses attributed to him. 

After each quoted version for a Chapter, I use the expression "Translated by ..."  The version of the Chapter could be a strict or free or loose "translation" of the Chapter by a qualified bilingual, Chinese-English, scholar, teacher, Taoist, adept or expert, e.g., Stephen Addiss, Ellen Chen, Thomas Cleary, Robert Henricks, Livia Kohn, Michael LaFargue, Victor Mair, Red Pine, Lin Yutang, Arthur Waley, Hua-Ching Ni, Burton Watson, John Wu, etc..  It could also be an "interpolation" by a qualified or unqualified non-bilingual author who compared a dozen translations into English, and then authored their own English version of the Chapter, e.g., Aleistar Crowley, Wayne Dyer, Ursula Le Guin, Rivenrock, John Worldpeace, Ray Larose, etc.  It could be an "interpretation" of the Chapter to suit their own tastes, ideas, or beliefs, e.g., John Mabry's Christian interpretation or John Bright-Fey's esoteric Taoist interpretation.  I just call them all "translations," because I am often ignorant about the background, qualifications, and intentions of the translator/author.  

The "translations" for each Chapter are selected both by personal preference and randomly from the over 140 translations now available online of the 81 Chapters of the Daodejing.  I also own over 28 books of translations of the Daodejing.  The selections may or may not be "the best," or "most accurate," or "most meaningful," or "most beautiful"─ often a matter of different opinions by both scholars and educated readers.  These women and men, translators and authors, for some reason, decided it was worth their time to labor in the same fields of wisdom where once Laozi walked, following the Tao and striving to be both industrious and virtuous. 

Some translation's versions, now in the public domain, published before 1950, are liberally quoted.  Other translations, not yet in the public domain, published in book form after 1950, are quoted infrequently (mostly less than 5 quotations out of 81).  Since many translations available online have never been published in book form, and show no copyright information, it is difficult to ascertain their status.  I try to respect copyright and scholarly conventions regarding quotations.

This Chapter Index can also function as an electronic Concordance to the Daodejing.  Use the Ctrl + F keystroke combination to open the search function in any web browser.  Then, you can search this webpage by English, Spanish, and the Wade-Giles Romanized 'Terms.'  I use the word 'Terms' in my Chapter Index to loosely refer to: keywords, themes, phrases, chapter titles, terms frequently used in English language translations, subjects, topics, words, nouns, verbs, adverbs, or adjectives.  I tend to favor inclusiveness, related meanings, interrelated concepts, and generality when including Terms in this index; reflecting the fascinating complexity of translating and reinterpretation. 

One of my main objectives was to create a detailed subject index (Concordance) by Chapters of the Tao Te Ching, searchable by English and Spanish language Terms, and the Wade-Giles Romanized spellings for the Terms likely to correspond to the Mandarin Chinese language characters.  I completed a first draft in 2012 for searching by English language Terms for all 81 Chapters; and by July of 2014 for searching by Spanish language Terms for all 81 Chapters .  By July of 2015, I completed adding the Wade-Giles Romanized spellings (Latin script) for the spoken Mandarin Chinese Terms to all the web pages cited in this Chapter Index. 

I believe that all of the webpages on my Taoism website, including all 81 webpages on the 81 Chapters of the Tao Te Ching, all of these webpages now include a Google Translate Drop Down Menu, located near the top of each webpage.  I understand the many problems and deficiencies of computer software translations, but more access to and opening the door to more non-English translations for reading of the Tao Te Ching are improved. 

Each week I try to revise, edit, add to and improve one of my webpages on the Tao Te Ching.  Each Friday, I present a post about that one Chapter of the Tao Te Ching in my Cloud Hands Blog.  

Thanks for visiting this website.  Your feedback and support are appreciated.
