How do you pronounce Tao?
Tow; but the "ow" is not pronounced as in the way a truck would tow something, but "ow, that hurt!"
Tao has no gender. Tao, meaning "way" or "path" is, metaphorically speaking, merely the road upon which one travels in the pursuit of wisdom and understanding. The famous symbol of the "Yin and Yang" is a depiction of the Tao, showing that balance and equilibrium are of paramount importance. But Lao Tzu also wrote "The Tao which can be spoken is not the Tao. The Tao which can be written is not the Tao"
