Lao Zi


Lao Zi lived during the Zhou dynasty (1122 to 221 BC). He was the head of the state library and much of his time was devoted to learning. He was not a seeker of fame but his name lived on because of his book Tao Te Ching and he was widely regarded as the founder of Taoism. It seemed that one day, Lao Zi just left China on an oxen to travel westward. He wrote the thin book, Tao Te Ching, in response to a request from Yinxi, a guardian of the Western Pass.
