The Tao that can be spoken of is not the real Way reads a famous line from the Tao-te-ching. But although the Tao cannot be described by words, words can allow us to catch a fleeting glimpse of that mysterious energy of the universe which is the source of life. The readings in this book are a beginner's entree into the vast treasury of writings from the sacred Chinese tradition, consisting of original translations of excerpts from the Taoist canon. Brief introductions and notes on the translation accompany the selections from the classics; books of devotional and mystical Taoism; texts of internal alchemy; stories of Taoist immortals, magicians, and sorcerers; ethical tracts; chants and rituals; and teachings on meditation and methods of longevity.

The greatest strength of this collection is that it goes beyond the well-known texts of the Tao-Te Ching, Chuang-Tzu and Lieh-Tzu to encompass the later Taoist texts featuring the magical, alchemical, devotional and physical facets of Taoism.
