Live a life of truth,
And you will look back on a life of truth.
Live a life of fantasy,
And you will look back on delusion.
(Order – taken from 365 Tao by Deng Ming-Dao)
Some of you recently commented on my photos of January’s full moon. Could it be that you are as fond of and as mesmerized by the moon as I am? If following and celebrating the moon with the help of a lunar calendar full of festivals, stories, meditations, and exercises and learning about Taoist wisdom sounds intriguing to you, then I highly recommend this new Harper One book, The Lunar Tao: Meditations in Harmony with the Seasons which was just published on January 29, 2013.
The author of the book is no other than contemporary Taoist master, successful writer, and renowned fine artist, Deng Ming-Dao, who has previously published 8 other books, among them the hugely popular 365 Tao. In The Lunar Tao: Meditations in Harmony with the Seasons you will also find some of andelieya’s photographs as part of the illustrations.
Here are some useful links to more information about the book, such as sample pages and reviews:
