Free Download PDF The Tao of Pooh & The Te of Piglet
An utterly unique and accessible introduction to the ancient principles of Taoism with the world’s favourite bear, Winnie-the-Pooh and his friend Piglet.
Winnie-the-Pooh has a certain way about him, a way of doing things that has made him the world’s most beloved bear, and Pooh’s Way, as Benjamin Hoff brilliantly demonstrates, seems strangely close to the ancient Chinese principles of Taoism. And as for Piglet, he embodies the very important principle of Te, meaning Virtue of the Small.
“It’s hard to be brave,’ said Piglet, sniffing slightly, “when you’re only a Very Small Animal.”
Rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: “It is because you are a very small animal that you will be useful in the adventure before us.”
Benjamin Hoff’s explanations of Taoism and Te through Pooh and Piglet show that this is not an ancient and remote philosophy but something that you can use, here and now. Beautifully illustrated by E H Shepard.
