  1. Suicide?

    When younger, I decided to sit still till enlightenment. Result, my toe turned black due to a blood clot. Fortunately I then stopped, went to the GP and lived to tell the tale, lol.

    Hi @Tombajo I am interested in this, because I am translating the DaXue and the ZhongYong. So how do you get around this problem?

  12. What’s Tao?

    I started learning Chinese two years ago, my aim is to make my own translation of all the Tao Te Ching verses. I got sidetracked by a friend who is into Confucianism. She gave me 大学 and 中庸 to translate. Lol, I have finished 大学 now, it took me almost a year. I am now doing 中庸 and the character 道 (Tao) is in it. I don’t want to leave it untranslated, as is often done. But what could be a short translation for it? I went online in search of a short description, and that’s how I found this forum. Nice to meet you all.
