Lao Tzu Biography
Lao Tzu, also known as Laozi, was a philosopher in ancient China,wholived in the 6th century BC. However, there are historians who say that heis a mythical figure, or a synthesis of multiple historical figures. Thestories say that he never created a formal school. However, he attracted alarge number of students and loyal disciples.According to the legend, Lao Tzu was the keeper of the archives at theimperial court, which gave him the opportunity to study the archive booksand gain a great deal of knowledge.During his life, LaoTzugot knownfor his wisdom,and it is said thateven thefamous Chinese philosopher,Confucius, heard about Lao Tzu, and came tovisit him. However, recentscholars place him about two centuries later.Lao Tzu believed that the human life, like everything else in the universe,is influenced by outside forces. He believed "simplicity" to be the key totruth and freedom, encouraging people to observe, and seek to understandthe laws of nature. He also preached for building up personal power, andusingit for leading life with love, without force.When Lao Tzu was about eighty years old, he set out for the westernborder of China, towards Tibet, saddened that peoplewere unwilling tofollow the path to natural goodness. At the border, a guard, asked LaoTzu to record his teachings before he left. He then composed in 5,000characters the Tao Te Ching (The Way and Its Power).It is said that Lao Tzu is the founder of the Chinese spiritual tradition,Taoism, mainly because of his text called Tao Te Ching (Tao: the way of all life, Te: the fit use of life by men, Ching: text or classic).A large number of people trace their lineage back toLaoTzu, as did theemperors of theTang Dynasty. Though many of these claims might notbe true, they provide a testament to the impact of Lao TzuontheChineseculture.
