A companion volume to Gia-fu Feng and Jane English's translation of Tao Te Ching, which has enjoyed great success since its publication in 1972, including seven foreign editions.

Chuang Tsu anticipated Zen Buddhism's emphasis on a state of emptiness or ego transcendence. With humor, imagery and fantasy, he captures the depth of Chinese thinking.

This translation of Inner Chapters was originally published in 1974 by Knopf/Vintage. These new editions, published by Earth Heart in 1997 and by Hay House in 2014, include many new photographs by Jane English and an introduction by Tai Ji master Chungliang Al Huang, who has been highly successful in bringing to the West the wisdom of the East.
