User: How would you characterize Daoist teachings in their entirety

Weegy: Together with Confucianism, ?Daoism? remains to be one of the two greatest philosophical traditions that are indigenous in China. [ Daodejing characterizes early Daoist teachers as people whose thoughts and practices can be regarded as being ?philosophical,? sometimes ?religious,? and sometimes a combination of the two. Though the modern scholars particularly those in the West have been trying to classifying Daoist teachers as being either ?religious,? or ?philosophical?, most of the Daoist teachers themselves were never uninterested in those kind of classifications (Nivison, 1996). Daoist teachers just preferred to have their main focus on the understanding of nature, reality, ordering life morally, increasing their longevity, regulating diet and consciousness, and practicing ruler-ship. It is confirmed by the characterization of Daodejing that early Daoist teachers fundamental concerns and ideas included ziran (?naturalness?), wuwei (?effortless action?), how to be a zhenren (?realized person?) or shengren (?sage?), and the mysterious ineffable Dao (?Way?) (Wilson, 2002). ]
