Description

REL 133 WEEK 4,

Write a 1- to 2-paragraph response to each of the following:

1. How does the Daodejing characterize early Daoist teachers? They rely on the Dao for their yin-yang. For over 2000 years they relied on China for their philosophy. No one really is able to read the Dao, and it makes it hard for anyone to seize it. Many quirks arrive at that time.

The biggest problems arose with the ones in authority. Each person that gathered them may have been specialists of ceremonies as well as had a part in civil administration. Some of the philosophy appears directed at them too. The ruler is someone in a clouded position. Everyone is considered content when they complete their duties.

2. How would you characterize Daoist teachings in their entirety?

Daoists teachings in their entirety would basically be summed up as they rely on the yin-yang for one’s journey in life. People need to rely on them in order to reach peace. They came from years of fiction, ceremonies, and such. Everybody has the choice of their own path and how they want to live it. Nature is the focus. The Daoists worship anything that has to do with nature and try to become one with it.
