Lao-Zi Xiang-Er Commentary

Recommended Posts

I wonder where I can find in this forum more about this commentary or if any English translation. Your input is much appreciated. Thanks

I think it depends on the type of sage you're referring to.  Would we say that Shamans were sages too ?   Or Buddha's who choose to remain within the world to help mankind?

 

The sage follows heaven and earth in viewing without partiality the arising/returning of the dualistic world.   That is like universal mind at work.  The subset of the local mind understands the manifest life and how people do not understand the universal mind truth.    The sage can bridge the local and universal understanding of mind.

 

 

 

I've long wanted to research this further and maybe we can.  I've mentioned it before and recall it was the Celestial Master's commentary on LZ that talks about it.  So it was easier to google and get one link for now:

How do I quote a thread?

Bokenkamp's book has a translation but it is on the surviving chapters.   Many other translations in the book as well at 500 pages.
