We delve into The Tao Te Ching(In English, 2023 Revision).


Lao Tzu, believed to have lived during the Jin Dynasty, which was ruled by the descendants of Shun, the originator of ritual practices, was born in Gokin-ri of the Zhou Dynasty. In 534 B.C., the Jin Dynasty was overthrown by the Zhou Dynasty. Laozi is said to have been a contemporary of Confucius, living during the 6th or 5th century BCE. In 501 B.C., when Confucius was 51 years old, during the Spring and Autumn Period, he embarked on a journey to seek out Laozi, described as an elderly man with a full head of hair, to learn about the proper etiquette of the Jin Dynasty. According to \'Zhuangzi\', they met near the middle-upper stream of Huisu, not far from the Sang of the former Jin dynasty. It was during this encounter that Confucius first encountered Laozi\'s philosophy of natural spontaneity and self-liberation. After realizing its stark contrast with his own teachings centered around humanity and the goal of cultivating a harmonious society, Confucius turned away. Lao Tzu, feeling disillusioned with the state of the world in an era of chaos, retreated from society, recognizing the impermanence of human affairs. At Hamgokgwan, he left behind a collection of 5,000 characters known as \'The Tao Te Ching\' for Yoon-hee, representing the foundation of all philosophy and thought.
