Dear Reader,

(including all its subsidiary (and/or sister) pages on "coombs.anu.edu.au" server) has permanently ceased its publishing operations on Friday 21st January 2011.

All of the online resources reported here have been thoroughly checked at the time of their listing. However, it is possible that, with the with the passage of time, many of the originally reported materials might have been removed from the Internet, or changed their online address, or varied the scope and quality of their contents.

Fortunately, in several cases it is possible to access many of the older versions of the resources listed in the MONITOR. This can be easily done via the free services of the "The Internet Archive" http://web.archive.org/, a remarkable brainchild of Brewster Kahle, San Francisco, CA.

- with warm regards -

Editor, Dr T. Matthew Ciolek.

Das Tao Te King von Lao Tse (The Laozi Daodejing)


www.geocities.com, Germany

"This website is a collection. It does not represent anything, but the pure text of the Tao Te King. The only 'statement' of this website is the great variety of perspectives. Any version will be integrated, no matter what quality or interpretation."

["This website is a collection of various Daodejing versions, including those found in Mawangdui, and its translations as far as they where/are available to the maintainer of the site (83 in March 2004). To allow comparison it is possible to split the screen and simltaneously view up to four different versions of the text." - h. lecher.]
