Tao has been built into the foundation of East Asian culture for millennia, and many books have been written to explain it. But Tao cannot fully be explained in words; it can only felt and experienced. Tao is something you live, day by day, moment by moment. It's the omnipresent oneness beyond ephemeral phenomena that expresses itself in everything.

New York Times bestselling author Ilchi Lee, an enlightened Tao master from South Korea, has laid out a path to living Tao everyday. Along this path, he guides you to an understanding of the meaning of birth, death, and everything in between, building a foundation for living a complete and whole life.

The universal principles contained in "Living Tao: Timeless Principles for Everyday Enlightenment" stem from the Korean practice of Sundo, an ancient tradition of mind-body training, as well as Lee's own life experience.

With these tangible principles, Ilchi Lee makes this profound topic simple and accessible. "Living Tao" has an unparalleled depth in its simplicity that anyone can absorb and immediately apply.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Due to the influence of Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching, many people think that the Tao belongs to China. However, in most ancient East Asian countries, the Tao was an important cultural, spiritual tradition, and a part of life. Although it's clear that the word, Tao, is from an Eastern language, in fact, the Tao does not belong to the East alone. Even before the word existed, the Tao is that something that has always existed fully, transcending the limitations of space and time comprehensible to humans.

I have little interest in understanding the Tao on a conceptual and intellectual level. For the Tao is not to be found in words. My interest is in how to feel and become one with the Tao. We must guard against the Tao remaining as no more than a superficial idea, as a spiritual accessory, failing to become a part of our lives.

The purpose of this book is not to provide an emergency prescription or cure-all to solve an in an instant all of your problems. The purpose of this book is to methodically teach you a path to the Tao through 12 steps, each of which is a chapter, and to inspire you with a passion for living a life of oneness with the Tao.

The path to Tao introduced in this book is rooted in my personal experience and in Sundo, which is Korea's own millennia-old tradition of mind-body training. This Sundo existed before Taoism and Buddhism were prevalent, and, although it influenced and was influenced by other religions and spiritual traditions, it developed very independently.

The core philosophy of Sundo is found in complete oneness with the Tao, and this is expressed as follows in the Chun Bu Kyung, which is an ancient Korean scripture. . . .

As the Chun Bu Kyung says, all humans have an inner longing to know the Tao. Human bodies also contain a complete Tao sense and system through which they can feel and see the Tao. You can gradually grow closer to the Tao by ceaselessly awakening that sense and working to live a Tao-centered life.
