Was Zhuangzi a Sage?

Was Zhuangzi a Sage?
by Scott Bradley

Was Zhuangzi (Chuang-Tzu) a sage? How can we know? If he truly experienced the “far and unfettered wandering” of which he wrote, then in my book he was. But it’s easy enough to have flights of spiritual fantasy without ever arriving at our proposed destination. So, I guess the only way to know is to actually arrive oneself. But no matter, flights of spiritual fantasy a la Zhuangzi are fun in any case. And you don’t even need to take off your shoes, get felt-up, or have a full-body X-ray before boarding.

You can check out Scott's writings on Zhuangzi here.
