Ascended Master Lao Tze


A semi-legendary figure, Lao Tze is usually portrayed as a 6th-century BC contemporary of Confucius, but some modern historians consider him to have lived during the Warring States period of the 4th century BC. A central figure in Chinese culture, Lao Tze is claimed by both the emperors of the Tang dynasty and modern people of the Li surname as a founder of their lineage.

Lao Tze had a large number of students and disciples during his lifetime. Whether he actually ever ran a school is often debated. Lao Tze appears to have worked as the Keeper of the Archives for the royal court as a young man. This allowed him to read the works of the Yellow Emperor and other Chinese classics.

Eventually Lao Tze became unsatisfied with city life. Legend holds that he then lived as a hermit for nearly a century. Returning to the city, he was recognized by a guard who asked Lao Tze to write a book explaining the wisdom he had gained during his solitude. This was the fabled origin of the Tao Te Ching.

One of the main principles in Tao Te Ching is literally "non-action". This central concept is similar to other spiritual practices such as meditation that attempt to empty the mind of bodily consciousness and thought. The Tao Te Ching has become one of the most significant spiritual classics in Chinese history.

According to the Tao Te Ching, humans are one of the 10,000 manifestations of the universal source of life. Lao Tze is traditionally regarded as the founder of Taoism. Some analysts view Taoism as a religion specifically addressing the quest for immortality. Taoism has now grown into a pantheon of deities with Lao Tze himself, the Jade Emperor and close associates at the top.

He is not only a Master of Wisdom, but also the Master of Joy and Lightness of Being. He is here to remind us life is not all about work and that life can contain simple joys. We are all so solemn; we live our lives looking down when there is so much to be gained from turning our face to the sun and being the Being we are. He manifests on the yellow ray, the second ray of Wisdom.
