Description

The Tao possesses no power to cause anything to exist or to take place. As for TO ON, which superficially might seem the best translation of Tao as described in the text, it is the most misleading of the three.

The Tao possesses no power to cause anything to exist or to take place. Yet our experience when analyzed tells {6} us that the only reality of which we may be sure is this path or Way which resumes the whole of our knowledge.

Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) was uniquely qualified to produce a translation of Lao-tzus Tao Te Ching. He was called the finest English metrical poet of his generation by some of his contemporaries, and his work is anthologized in the Oxford Book of Mystical Verse

Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) was uniquely qualified to produce a translation of Lao-tzus Tao Te Ching. He was called the finest English metrical poet of his generation by some of his contemporaries, and his work is anthologized in the Oxford Book of Mystical Verse. He was also a profound and experienced magician, mystic, and philosopher, trained in western esotericism, Hermeticism, the Qabalah and more traditional western philosophy, but with a deep and abiding interest in the ancient philosophies of the Orient. Crowley traveled widely in the East, and he actually walked across Southern China.

Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) was uniquely qualified to produce a translation of Lao-tzus Tao Te Ching. He was called the finest English metrical poet of his generation by some of his contemporaries, and his work is anthologized in the Oxford Book of Mystical Verse. He was also a profound and experienced magician, mystic, and philosopher, trained in western esotericism, Hermeticism, the Qabalah and more traditional western philosophy, but with a deep and abiding interest in the ancient philosophies of the Orient. Crowley traveled widely in the East, and he actually walked across Southern China in 1906. His first-hand experience of the Orient made him one of the first students in the West to grasp oriental philosophy on its own terms, without a Eurocentric or Judeo-Christian cultural bias. The Chinese scholar Hellmut WIlhelp acknowledged the primacy of Crowleys work in Taoist studies. Crowley had no Chinese, and his translation is that of a poet interpreting the dry and scholastic translation of James Legge, as Ezra Pound would later do with the Confucian Analects. He contributes and autobiographical and critical introduction that discusses his religious philosophy and his lifelong attraction to Taoism, and his extensive notes and commentary to his translation help to amplify the meaning of the Chinese classic. This edition includes Crowleys verse translation of the Ching-ching Ching (Liber XXI, The Classic of Purity) as an appendix. This edition includes an editorial forward by Hymenaeus Beta, Frater Superior of O.T.O., as well as bibliography and index.

Crowley's intepretation of the Taoist classic is very illuminating, showing if nothing else the flexibility of the Law of Thelema. The book is a peircing look into Crowley's own sycretist mind. However, Crowley's technique of intepretation leads to a very dry reading of the text. The book is set up like a typical Thelemic Liber, with paragraph headings and so forth. The chapters are written in prose paragraphs, rather than free verse as other translations. THus, the poetic power of the text is actually somewhat diminshed. The inclusion of footnotes to explain things is very unTaoist in spirit. Overall, however, Crowley's Toa Te Ching is a very illuminating read. It shows that the Law truly is for all, and that it has been hiding for centuries. This, if nothing else, makes the book worthwhile.

Although this volume is more of an interpretation than a translation, since by Crowley's own admission he was working from English texts, nevertheless it displays those multiple levels of spiritual wisdom and understanding which are typical of his best work. In addition, the book serves as an excellent introduction to his work for a broader audience, in that he has omitted his usual technique of shocking the unwary out of complaisancy through the use of humor.
He has somehow managed to synthesize the basic tenets of the Tao Te Ching with his own core doctrine as expressed in the Book of the Law. This resolution of seeming opposites goes to the heart of both systems, in that each teaches that the nature of Truth is Paradox. In this work the author appears (for him) incredibly restrained, as though in awe of the text he is working with. There are many levels of depth to be derived from each chapter, and the book deserves repeated reading and meditation. Those unfamiliar with Crowley's work will have a chance to encounter the depth of his wisdom without trepidation, and old fans will realize herein deeper profundities reserved for the initiated and the willing.

Okay, maybe I am going out on a limb to give this book five stars, as it will only appeal to Thelemites - chances are pretty good that it will offend an actual Taoist. Uncle Al's translation and interpretation of this ancient Chinese book of mystery is a mind blowing experience though. Just keep in mind that it is not to be read in the light of Lao Tzu's thought as much as Crowley's mysticism. There is even a disclaimer at the beginning of the book by the Beast himself that basically admits to "garnishing the radish". So if you are a Thelemite, or if you are just interested in Crowley or the blending of Taoist mysticism with that of Western Magick, buy this book. Or better yet, go to [...] and copy and paste the whole book onto your word document and get the whole thing for free! (*wink wink*)

For any student of Thelema, this is A. Crowley's adaptation of the Tao Te Ching. It is notable particularly in the Thelemic slant in the translation/interpretation. I found it particularly interesting when compared to more literal translations; this was especially illuminating with regards to understanding Thelema.

As a daoist that can read the chinese directly, I don't find the book very worthwhile.

As a thelemite, I find that it struggles to unite thelemic concepts with daoism. It has its moments, but for the most part, you'll get what you need out of any translation you can read.

I'm a big fan of Stephen Mitchell's translation. I have compared several others and haven't liked them because they often lack clarity. I came across Aleister Crowley's translation and although it is a very loose translation, his paraphrasing of the ideas from the book are very insightful. Not sure what the other reviewers actually disliked.

I feel I could study this translation for years and still find new pearls of wisdom. Truly excellent work.
Fantastic imagination... and makes me wonder: "(...)"
Fancy reading about Tao Te Ching
from someone who couldn't even pronounce Chinese words correctly...
Crowley had done a great job of convincing many that a cat is
essential a dog and the great thing is many giving praises for this
book.
Thelemic Tao Te Ching? Give me a break!
