Continuing, Maya explained that Dao, a noun in the Chinese philosophy, was the absolute principle guarding the universe, and in combination with the yin and yang principles was significant with the behavioral code and agreed with the natural order. She added:

"The interpretation of Tao in the Tao-te Ching developed into the philosophical religion of Taoism. This dude is a KING, and he knows it!"

"Berkeley Seon Dunbar 8.3lbs 20.5in… Mom is doing great. We are absolutely in LOVE with our daughter!"
