Characteristics of “Taoism” and Its Enlightenment on Regimen

Pengying ZOU, Yuhui YANG


The philosophical meaning of Taoism is the quintessence of Taoism thought, and also the theoretical basis of regimen thought in Taoism. The quintessence of regimen extracted from Taoism is the starting point and the end. Thus, this paper mainly absorbs quintessence of Taoism from Tao Te Ching and discusses its enlightenment on regimen. This paper starts with the observation of Lao Tzu’s Taoism, and then further reveals the theoretical origins of philosophical thought of regimen, the core of which is the nature law that emphasizes “theory that man is an integral part of nature” and “holism of body and spirit”. Human, as one part of the universe, should obey and follow laws of “Taoism”, namely naturally regular survival and living, and achieve the unification with “Taoism” and harmony with nature. Only in this way can be the overall preservation to individual and group life be realise.
