Product Description

Review

Louis Komjathy's Daoism: A Guide for the Perplexed dispels the many misconceptions that people have about China's indigenous religion, and sorts through the wealth of recent scholarship about Daoism. In so doing it builds up a clear and authoritative picture of China's indigenous religion that is both reliable and accessible. James Miller, Professor of Religious Studies and Chinese Studies, Queen's University, Canada Whether perplexed, bemused, or simply curious, wayfarers along the path of life will find Louis Komjathy's little book a very knowledgeable and helpful guide to the Daoist tradition (formerly Romanized as Taoism). In a concise but accessible way, Komjathy gives the reader a complete map to the interesting and often wonderfully strange historical, cultural, and religious landscape of Daoism. Honest wayfarers may not be completely un-perplexed when finishing this guide, but they will learn that Daoism is a tradition that honors honest perplexity as a crucial step toward self-awareness and spiritual transformation. Norman Girardot, University Distinguished Professor of Comparative Religions, Lehigh University, USA
