Abstract:   (641 Views)
In Daoism, 'Sheng Ren' or 'Perfect Man' is assigned to a person who acts in accordance with Dao and nature. A sage person is wholly in harmony with Dao and therefore, the most significant description of him is manifested as 'Wu-wei' or 'non-action'. Dao is the being which natural and spontaneous process of all the things is depended to it. Therefore, no one should put obstacles in the way of Dao. In conclusion, everything would appear in accordance with its natural and genetical way. Dao is itself without any action but it creates everything. A man can attain truth just in the condition that he acts naturally. In fact, not-action is not anything else than being in accordance with Dao and nature. A Daoist sage is a person who lets all cosmic courses circulate freely in him and in all the world and following that, both he himself and whole of the world reach to unity in calmness and tranquility. He lays down all his acquired and learned perceptions and realizes his being identical with everything in the world. He avoids from any kind of artificial autonomic interference in nature. As in nature everything arises in stillness and emerges his duties without any frippery or exaggeration also a man should do all his tasks in their natural course avoiding personal interests or benefits.
