Let us continue our exploration of Dao De Jing, by discussing how we are using multiple translations to understand the work. We will focus on poems 1 to 3 poems each week and have many people read from translations they find most enlightening. Then we will discuss the poems using the multiple translations as various interpretations of the poem. Let us use this method to discuss a few poems thoroughly—thereby learning about not only about Dao De Jing but also about how we can interpret it and try our best to get at its rich meaning.
