Welcome to Taoist Mission
Taoism is about learning, cultivation and practice, that is, learning about the ways of the Tao, self-cultivation to achieve Tao and practicing the teachings of Taoism. Its origins could be traced back to the time of the Yellow Emperor (Huang Di, 黄帝), thereafter it was promoted by the philosophical writing of Lao Zi (老子), and finally organized as a formal religion by Zhang Dao Ling (张道陵), the religion’s Celestial Master.
Taoism is the only indigenous religion of China. It embodies forms of Chinese beliefs and traditions practiced from the early days of Chinese civilization. Thus, as the great Chinese writer Lu Xun put it, “The root of the Chinese people is Taoism.” It is commonly said that to understand Chinese culture, one has to understand the Taoist religion as Chinese culture lies in Taoism.
Taoism draws its philosophy and teachings from Lao Zi’s “Tao Te Ching” but it has never developed a dogmatic belief system. Instead Taoism wholeheartedly adopted the philosophy and principles of the “TAO”. Taoism emphasizes the paramount importance of understanding the natural order of things, because only by knowing the principles of the Tao people then can live in harmony.
