Tao Te Ching

A Listmania! list by Swami M.
The list author says: "The Tao Te Ching is said to be the third-most-translated book into English, after the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita. Here are some translations available on Amazon.com. I must have been possessed by some strange compulsion when I made this list. It is not complete; there are even more translations, but these must be the major ones.
