Nikolova, Antoaneta. The tasteless of dao. – In: Manas: Senses and Sensitivity, Vol. 2, 2, 2015.
Summary: The article presents the daoist understanding that dao can not be fixed within strict and specific sensory perceptions. This, however, does not mean that it refers to some transcendent reality. Being the potentiality of all manifestations, it can not be reduced to any specific actualisation. Therefore, the Chinese poet of dao can achieve it in a specific meditative state of consciousness and should express it in simple and unsophisticated verses – as simple as the taste of fresh water.
