A religion with roots stretching back nearly five thousand years, Taoism combines elements of folklore, occult sciences, cosmology, yoga, meditation, poetry, and exalted mysticism. Mysterious and charmingly poetic, it is a living remnant of a way of life which has almost vanished from the world.

In this comprehensive study, John Blofeld explains the fundamental concepts of Taoism, tells many stories of ancient masters, and provides incisive reflections on Taoist verse. He writes in a colorful and unique way about his visits to Taoist hermitages in China and his interchanges with contemporary masters. Taoist yoga, a little known aspect of Taoist practice, is also discussed in detail. This book captures the spirit of the Tao, communicating the serenity and timeless wisdom of this tradition.

..".Taoism encompasses exalted mystical aspirations and practical self-cultivation. Blofeld's book comprehensively devotes space to both aspects and also gives an overview of Taoism's origins and growth through the ages. The author's first-hand descriptions of Taoist hermitages and recluses in China add a charming dimension and deepen our understanding of a complex tradition."-- Library Journal
