  1. 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.

  2. 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.
