A famous painting exists of 3 Asian men, way back in time, who are gathered around a big vat of liquid. Vinegar, to be exact! They are dipping their fingers in the vat and tasting it. One man reacts with a sour expression; the second man has a bitter look on his face; and the third has a smile on his lips. These three men are Buddha, Lao Tzu, and Confucius, and their reactions to the taste of the vinegar represent their philosophies. Can you guess which man is associated with which expression? This famous painting was discussed in The Tao of Pooh, so you may already know the answer. But tune in anyway, because we'll be talking about the differences between these 3 key philosophies.
