        They are called The Teaching of Lao-Tzu. Lao Tzu talked about Tao, he didn’t really teach, but more told stories and wrote poems.

        Lao-Tzu wrote the Tao Te Ching in approximately 529 B.C.
        He wrote it just before he dissapeared from that region in China(and was never heard from again)
        He was a very obsure person. Very little is known about him.
        He started to leave town one day and the gatekeeper turned him around and told him he could not leave town until he went home and wrote this book.(Tao Te Ching)
        He merely wrote down his philosophy and gave it to the gatekeeper, went through the gate and disappeared, never to be heard from again.
        So we have this book the Tao Teh Ching, and those are the teachings or philosophy of Lao-Tzu.
        Taoism (pronounced Dowism in the western world ) as currently practiced, may or may not be based on the Tao Teh Ching.
        Tao means: the Way or more exactly” the way to solving the mystery that underlies all mysteries.”
        It says you can solve this mystery and says more or less how you might go about seeking and finding your Taohood in various ways, but you would have to practice and live a certain way in order to achieve this.
        Best to read the Tao Teh Ching. There are several good translations available. It is a very small book.
