Interpreting: The Book of the Tao (by Lao Tze, Verse 12)

Verse 12 *** The five colors blind the eye. The five tones deafen the ear. The five flavors dull the taste. Racing and hunting madden the mind. Precious things lead one astray. Therefore the sage is guided by what he feels and not by what he sees. He lets go of that and chooses this. *** Tao Te Ching, verse 12 Read & interpreted by Gabriel Raam Translated by Gia-fu Feng and Jane English, Vintage Books, 1989
