Day 2: January 2 – Everything Has Its Seed

Long gallery for viewing the lotus pond at the Prince Gong Mansion in Beijing



The Tao produced One;

One produced Two;

Two produced Three;

Three produced All things.

All things leave behind them the Obscurity (out of which they have come),

and go forward to embrace the Brightness (into which they have emerged),

while they are harmonised by the Breath of Vacancy.

~ Lao Tzu
