The Te of Piglet . . . in which a good deal of Taoist wisdom is revealed through the character and actions of A. A. Milne's Piglet from the bestselling author of The Tao of Pooh Piglet? Yes, Piglet. For the better than impulsive Tigger? or the gloomy Eeyore? or the intellectual Owl? or even the lovable Pooh? Piglet herein demonstrates a very important principle of Taoism: The Te--a Chinese word meaning Virtue--of the Small.

The bestselling author of The Tao of Pooh offers a uniquely authentic translation of the enduring Tao Te Ching, based on the meanings of the ancient Chinese characters in use when the Taoist classic was written. From Benjamin Hoff, author of The Tao of Pooh and The Te of Piglet, which have sold millions of copies worldwide, comes The Eternal Tao Te Ching, a new translation of the Chinese philosophical classic, the Tao Te Ching. The Eternal Tao Te Ching is the first translation to employ the meanings of the pre-writing brush characters in use 2,400 years ago, when the classic was written, rather than relying on the often-different meanings of the more modern brush characters, as other translations have done. Hoff points out in his chapter notes the many incidents of meddling and muddling that have been made over the centuries by scholars and copyists, and he corrects the mistakes and removes such tampering from the text. Hoff also makes the provocative claim—and demonstrates by revealing clues in the text—that the Tao Te Ching’s author was a young nobleman hiding his identity, rather than the long-alleged author, the “Old Master” of legend, Lao-tzu. And Hoff’s chapter notes shed new light on the author’s surprisingly modern viewpoint. With a selection of lyrical color landscape photographs by the author, this is a unique, and uniquely accessible, presentation of the Tao Te Ching.

World Religions falls outside the scope of the types of materials the Committee reviews.

This is a book about the advice I've read, mainly on the bus, on how to become a bit happier, calmer, kinder, and wiser, and how to get a slightly different perspective on life. I'm aiming this advice mostly at my children, and I've written this book with them in mind... but it’s helpful for anyone! I cover the wisdom of the Taoists, Zen Buddhists and Stoics and then some modern psychology, before I move on to some practical advice to increase your happiness based on the philosophies, books and articles that I’ve read. The BUS route is an abbreviation of: be here now, understanding empathy and compassion, and shrink desires. The book title is a happy coincidence, isn’t it? Throughout history we’ve had to deal with fear, anxiety, dissatisfaction, uncertainty, stress and lack of control. Our age is no different. I offer ways to cope, which includes: being more aware of life in the present moment, being more compassionate to yourself and others, looking at things more positively or realistically, looking at the big picture, and finding ways to manage your wants. This is a light-hearted look at how to be a little happier on the metaphorical bus journey of life, no matter what bumps in the road you’ll find.

Easternization of the West

... Western children's stories as if they were themselves spiritual guides, as witnessed by such works as Benjamin Hoff's The Tao of Pooh and Te of Piglet or Joey Green's The Zen of Oz: Ten Spiritual Lessons from over the Rainbow.

In this provocative and groundbreaking book, Colin Campbell shows that the civilization of the West is undergoing a revolutionary process of change, one in which features that have characterized the West for two thousand years are in the process of being marginalized, to be replaced by those more often associated with the civilizations of the East. Moving far beyond popular trends, Campbell assembles a powerful range of evidence to show how "Easternization" has been building throughout the last century, especially since the 1960s. Campbell demonstrates how it was largely in the 1960s that new interpretations in theology, political thought, and science were widely adopted by a new generation of young "culture carriers." This highly original and wide-ranging book advances a thesis that will be of interest to scholars in many disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.

In this book, J.J. Clarke shows us how Taoist texts, ideas, and practices have been assimilated within a whole range of Western ideas and agendas. We see how Chinese thinkers such as Lao-tzu and Chuang tzu, along with practices such as Feng Shui and Tai Chi, have been used as a key Western inspiration in religion, philosophy, ethics, politics, ecology and health. The Tao of the West not only provides a fascinating introduction to Taoism, it also offers a timely insight into the history of the West's encounter with this ancient tradition, and into the issues arising from inter-cultural dialogue. Anyone interested in understanding the key influence Taoism has had on the West will welcome and embrace this book.

When faced with a sudden and unexpected crisis, when faced with a death of a child, where your whole life is changed forever, where interacting with life is a huge challenge, where everyday matters are difficult to cope with and life seems insurmountable, how does one go on? How does one gather the strength and the courage to pick up the pieces of a shattered life? This book is the story of a mother’s journey—of a sudden and dramatic crisis—a descent into darkness and the journey back into the light. It is a journey of hope, love, survival, self-empowerment, and healing. It is a journey she hopes will inspire and uplift all who have lost a child or a loved one. She discovers that her children are still “alive” in their spiritual bodies—dead to this world but alive as shining lights in the evening sky.
