      Lau Tzu is the father of Taoism, and author of the Tao De Ching. His main teaching was acting in harmony with nature and the universe. The most common symbol associated with this philosophy is yin-yang.

      Lao Tzu was the main teacher of Taoism. His main priciple is that the Way of the Universe could not be adequtely described in words, and that it would be insulting both to its unlimited power and to the intelligent mind to attempt to do so.

      Lao Tzu is attributed with the foundations of Taoism, and the written work Tao Te Ching. One of the tenets of Taoism is meditation. Another is harmony with nature. Another is living in accordance with “The Way.” Another is the universal principle of polarity (Yin/Yang). Tai Chi is grounded in Taoism.

      Lao Tzu’s name became legendary with this writing, which also happens to be his only work.
      Lao Tzu (his name is sometimes written Lao Tse or Lao Zi, and he is also known as Li Er and Lao Dan) was supposedly born in Honan on the 24th of March in the year 604 BC. His name means “old-young” and he has been called the “Old Master”.
      Lao Tzu was very old, when he rode on a water buffalo to retire in the mountains to a province in the western frontiers. There he was approached by a border official named Guan Yin Zi, who urged the master to write down his teachings so that they might be passed on. Lao Tzu then retreated into the solitude of the mountain pass, wrote the Tao Te Ching, whereupon he went westward and was never seen again.

      Is this a trick? Everyone is correct, but I like harijanti’s answer best.
