THE BOOK OF BALANCE:
LAO TZU’S TAO TEH CHING
BY YASUHIKO GENKU KIMURA

A modern, visionary translation of the classic ancient text Tao Teh Ching

   
  “A good translator of the Tao Teh Ching…must also be an integral thinker in both science (this-worldly knowledge) and spirituality (otherworldly knowledge) to capture the duality and wholeness embedded in its writing. Yasuhiko Genku Kimura, with his background as a Zen Buddhist priest and as an advanced student of integral science, is such a translator. It is his integral thinking that separates this translation from the many translations of the Tao Teh Ching in my library. For this reason, I strongly recommend this translation to the serious students of Chinese philosophy and to readers of integral science and spirituality.” -- Professor Wing Pon, author of Neo-Taoism and Knowing the Unknowable: The Holon Theory of Everything

“Yasuhiko Genku Kimura is eminently qualified to present us with a philosophically sensitive and insightful translation of this rich and illusive text. There are numerous translations of Tao Teh Ching available in the marketplace, but this one stands out for me in its conceptual lucidity, philosophical accessibility, and textual fidelity….This is an important contribution to global philosophy.” -- from the Afterword by Ashok Gangadean, Ph.D., author of Meditative Reason and Between Worlds

“…Yasuhiko Genku Kimura’s new translation of the ancient Tao Teh Ching is…as clear and readable as can be wished for. On every page the reader will encounter that special and exciting glow found only when an author truly loves his subject….It deserves to be read widely.” -- from the Foreword by Herbert Guenther, Ph.D., D. Litt., author of The Matrix of Mystery and From Reductionism to Creativity
