Eine der wenigen guten und wirklich flüssig lesbaren Übertragungen entstammt der Feder von Rudolf Backofen, auf dessen Texten (aus den frühen 30-er Jahren des vergangenen Jahrhunderts) diese Ausgabe des Tao-Te-King beruht.

Sie bedürfen keiner Interpretation oder Erläuterung.

Lao-Tses Worte sind Worte der Weisheit; sie sprengen all unsere Vorstellungen. Lao-Tse schafft es, ohne Ge- oder Verbote aufzustellen, ohne Dogma und Theologie, einen Weg aufzuzeigen, der allen Lebenssituationen gerecht wird.
Möge seine Weisheit – nach über 2500 Jahren, die Menschen endlich dazu bringen, ihre geistigen Kräfte und Möglichkeiten bewusst in ihr Herz und in ihre Seele zurückzuholen und einzusetzen.
