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 good 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 effort.
Taoism works according to 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.
The ring is meant to remind us to accept the challenges life brings upon us and open our eyes to learn from them.
