Born in Tokyo, Japan on November 22, 1916, Masahisa Goi was a poet, philosopher, writer and musician. As a youth he aimed at a career in music, but found himself spontaneously drawn to the realms of philosophy and spiritual guidance. At the age of 30 he experienced oneness with his divine self.

Mr. Goi has authored more than 60 books and volumes of poetry, several of which have been translated into English and other languages.

In 1955 he initiated an international movement of prayer for world peace which has spread globally to people of all ages, faiths, and walks of life. This movement, centering on the universal peace message and prayer May Peace Prevail on Earth, continues under the leadership of his adopted daughter, Mrs. Masami Saionji.

The Spirit of Lao Tsu

"I sense that many readers feel exasperated when they try their own hand at interpreting Lao Tsu’s words in their original form, regardless of which chapter they may attempt. This is why I have chosen to write these essays on Lao Tsu, as I hope to take his profoundly difficult, seemingly unrealizable words of truth . . . and erect a pillar of light which can easily be climbed by the average person."
from The Spirit of Lao Tsu by Masahisa Goi
In this new important collection of commentaries, Masahisa Goi reveals the profound wisdom radiating from Lao Tsu’s Dôtokukyô (Tao-te Ching). The author’s incisive explanations illuminate Lao Tsu’s words to reveal essential truths for our modern age in an engaging, down-to-earth manner.
