Top Definition
Someone who follows the way or path of Taoism. It is a pagan spirituality developed by Lou Tzu around(400B.C.) in China when Confucianism was lacking, that embraces living in balance and harmony with the Tao. They worship a Pantheistic Godhead, the Tao(Mystical Spirit), or some may be Polytheistic. Their main text is an 80 page book, Tao Te Ching. Taoist belief in an afterlife or reincarnation depends on the practitioner, but many believe the soul has the ability to reincarnate through the universe. A Taoists main spiritual goal is to become one with the Tao, while achieving immortality, unlike the goal of Nirvana in Buddhism. Most Taoists practice inner and outer alchemy by becoming in tune with the Tao's 5 elements, eating a very healthy diet, and practicing medicinal herbal healing; much like white magic in the west.
Living in harmony with nature & universe is what a Taoist does.
