You have the internet. Use it.

The Free Thinker

Taoism have no dogma or doctrines. All “worship” it in their own way.

The “scripture” of Taoism is the Tao Te Ching. Taoism is not theistic, that is, it doesn’t say there is a god.
Look up the rest on the internet.

Start at the beginning: read the Dao De Ching by Lao Tzu. It’s only some 5,000 lines, the length of a long short story. This is the sacred text of Daoists. Understanding it is difficult and requires further study.
Daoism had a strictly philosophical form, that taught by Lao Dzu. The other forms were popular forms which had deities, symbols, and so forth. Kung Fu was a practice developed by Daoists, as was alchemy in the search for immortality.
Find a brief guide to Chinese mythology and a guide to ancient Chinese customs. There are free encyclopedias of religion online.
