The Tao Te Ching translated into Dudeish!

the-dude-de-ching Every religion needs to have a holy book. Christianity has the Bible, Judaisim has the Torah, Buddhism has the Dhammapada and Scientology has Dianetics.

Of course, we too have a tome that you can use to really tie your head together, and it’s called The Dude De Ching.

It’s basically a translation of the Tao Te Ching (the holy book of the Taoists), only it utilizes lines from The Big Lebowski to transform an ancient and challenging bunch of philosophical poems into the parlance of our times. Now you can die with a smile on your face without feeling like the good Tao confused you.
