Penang, Malaysia

Lao Tsu, writing in the 6th century BCE in China, is considered the father of Taoism. His book, Tao te Ching, gives insights for the inner way (I use Steven Mitchell’s translation):

“The Tao that can be told

Is not the eternal Tao.

The name that can be named

Is not the eternal name.”

Can you understand this? Inner meaning is beyond words.

We met some students who has recently graduated from college.




We talk with some kids — and they become our new Facebook friends.
