Without Action chinese characters simplified

Four characters are pronounced ‘wú wéi ér zhì’. It means to govern by doing nothing that goes against nature. The meaning of this phrase is Taoistic basic thought. It is also a basic way for those who want to cultivate oneself according to a religious doctrine. This thought was put forward by Lao Tzu, founder of Taoist. But within this phrase, ‘wu wei’ does not mean doing nothing, but mean being not against Tao.



This phrase is from Chapter 3 of TaoDeJing (laozi-daodeching). This thought was put forward by Lao Tzu, 4th-century Chinese philosopher on whose teachings Lao-Tzu based Taoism, founder of Taoist. Below is the full text of Chapter 3 of TaoDeJing.


3. without Action - Not praising the worthy prevents contention, Not esteeming the valuable prevents theft, Not displaying the beautiful prevents desire. In this manner the sage governs people: Emptying their minds, Filling their bellies, Weakening their ambitions, And strengthening their bones. If people lack knowledge and desire Then they can not act; If no action is taken Harmony remains.
