Taoism, also known as Daoism, is a spiritual tradition that originated in China and emphasizes the harmony between humans and nature. In Taoism, prayer is not as prominent as it is in other religious traditions. Instead of asking for divine intervention, Taoist practitioners focus on cultivating their inner spiritual energy or Qi. Taoist prayers are more like meditations or contemplations, aimed at attuning the mind and body to the natural rhythms of the universe. These prayers often involve repeating mantras or visualizing natural images, such as mountains, rivers, or the sun. The ultimate goal of Taoist prayer is to achieve a state of inner peace and harmony with the Tao, the ultimate reality that underlies all existence.

let us empty of all doctrines, The Tao is wisdom eternally inexhaustible. Fathomless for the mere intellect, The Tao is the law wherewith all things come into being. It blunts the edges of the intellect, Untangles the knots of the mind, Softens the glare of thinking, And settles the dust of thought. Transparent yet invisible, The Tao exists like deep pellucid water. Its origin is unknown, For it existed before Heaven and Earth.
