The ring of Tao contains the
Hebrew engraving of the sentence – “The road is wiser
than the one who walks in its path”. In the middle of the ring
appears the symbol of the Tao. Taoism is an ancient Chinese philosophy
based on the book “Tao te ching”.
The meaning of the word Tao is “Road” in the sense of path, road and as
well knowledge. The symbol of Tao
that appears on the ring means – “when the walker and the road become
one”. The Tao philosophy says that there is a law of nature
according to which all things act. When the walker on the path realizes
and feels this law, he becomes one with the universe. Each and every
step he makes is made in harmony with the universe. When the walker is
in this state he works by the principle of “wu wei” – a minimal effort
at each and every step - because harmonic movement does not require any
Taoism works according of the principles of the yin and yang.
Taoists live a simple life, based on strong relations with nature,
family and modesty. The Tao model of leadership is based on three basic
principles (Three "treasures" as Lao Tse calls them) – compassion,
modesty and efficiency.
