What is Daoism?
by Tim Bruewer
Daoism is the traditional religion of China. In general, it is believed that Daoist organizations were formally established 1,900 years ago by Celestial Master Zhang Daoling during the reign (AD 126-144) of Emperor Shundi of the Eastern Han Dynasty. However, the original sources of Daoist doctrines can be traced back to the Pre-Qin period (4000-221BC).
