  • The Chinese Gnosis

    < Back The Chinese Gnosis A commentary on the Tao Te Ching Book Details: Pages 461 ISBN 9789067321839 Publisher Rozekruis Pers Published 2018 Publishers Code 4091 Previous Catharose de Petri and Jan van Rijckenborgh Ancient China has been marked by the mysterious testimony of a timeless wisdom. It is the eternal call for a reunion with the Tao, the absolute of man. Just like the Bhagavad-Gita and the Gospels, the Tao Te King, a concise work of only 81 aphorisms by the Chinese sage Lao Tse, transmits us a universal teaching that is the object of interest of countless people around the world, a fact proven by the fact that it is the most read book after the Bible, with countless editions in various languages. According to tradition, the Tao is transmitted to the one "on the borderline," prepared to listen to the revelation of the path back to the original perfect man, the man-microcosm. Jan van Rijckenborgh and Catharose de Petri recognized in the Bible of Taoism the universal Gnostic teaching. In The Chinese Gnosis, the authors unveil the language with which Lao Tse clothed his teaching. These are comprehensive and extremely up-to-date commentaries that help those who seek the path to spiritual realization, and show the perfect viability of this path for modern man. Let's take as an example this verse from chapter 33 of the Tao Te King: "He who conquers other men is strong, but he who conquers himself is omnipotent. About this verse, the authors say, "To become omnipotent means to penetrate the fundamental essence of the Godhead and become part of it." In a nutshell, this sums up the entire and magnificent mission that underlies human existence. The Tao Te Ching is here read as a gnostic writing. Gnosis is the knowledge that gives people ac-cess to the way of redemption. The text contains everything that the searcher for the truth needs. The authors in their comments: 'Every pupil on the path must read and reread the Tao Teh Ching. Why? The Other, for whom Tao is destined, is caught in you and you can release him by letting him awaken in you, by self-surrender in wu wei.' Get PDF Next
