What is the cardinal principle of Taoism?


  1. It’s been over 35 years since I read the Tao Te Ching, but if I recall correctly, the core principle is balance and moderation. But then I could be wrong.

  2. Here is a short excerpt from the Zhuan Falun Lecture on the web.
    “Daoists cultivate True, Good, Endure with an emphasis on being True. That’s why Daoists strive to, “cultivate truth and nourish inborn nature, say true words, do true things, be a truthful person, return to your original, true self, and ultimately cultivate into a True Person.” But they also have Endure, and they also have Good, it’s just that the emphasis is on cultivating the True part.”
    You learn more about the Taoist belief from the online lecture: http://www.falundafa.org/book/eng/pdf/zfl_new.pdf
    Not relating to Buddhism nor Taoism, Falun Gong is a unique Buddha School, combining the Daoist and Buddhist practice. Falun Gong is based upon the universal principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance. Falun Gong consists of five sets of powerful exercises.
    Falun Gong, Tibetans, other Buddhists, and Christians have been persecuted in China. The most offensive human right violation is the organ harvesting from the Falun Gong practitioners in China.
