The Tao Te Ching, attributed to Lao Tzu, is considered a foundational text of Taoism.The following version of The Tao Te Ching is based upon a translation from Lionel Giles, The Wisdom of the East: The Sayings of Lao Tzu (The Orient Press, 1904). This adaptation replaces masculine pronouns and references with the feminine, providing a text that speaks directly to women in the female voice. No longer do women have to infer that a text is meant to be inclusive when reading. It now addresses women directly. This publication is part of the Feminine Sacred Texts Project, which aims to add the female voice to traditional works by reversing male gender pronouns and wording to the feminine, rather than simply providing gender neutral translations. Written in the feminine, these traditional sacred texts speak directly to the sisterhood of women.
