The Tao Te Ching was written by Lao-Tzu translation by S. Mitchell Дао де дзин


Теряя благоговение,
люди обращаются к религии.
Не доверяя себе,
ищут власти над собой.

Посему Мастер отстраняется,
дабы не смущать умы.
Учит так, что не замечаешь.

When they lose their sense of awe,
people turn to religion.
When they no longer trust themselves,
they begin to depend upon authority.

Therefore the Master steps back
so that people won’t be confused.
He teaches without a teaching,
so that people will have nothing to learn.
