Taoism regards Tao, or the Way, as its ultimate belief. The "Tao" that we believe in is fundamentally the "void" or nothingness yet encompassing everything. Therefore, we always advocate the spirit of tolerance. In this world exist many cultures and religions, large in number and distinct in nature. We believe that these distinctions do not necessarily lead to conflict. Taoism advocates the Tao's way in accordance with the law of Nature. Although Nature may be composed of very different species, it goes on in a harmonious and systematic way. As long as we can tolerate each other and respect each other's beliefs, values and lifestyles, we will be able to live in harmony with each other.

To cultivate in people a sense of tolerance and harmony, Taoism advocates the spirit of "universal love." "Universal love" is to maintain a benevolent loving heart towards all people, be their family members or strangers, the great or the humble. Taoism calls for people to feel happy about the wellbeing of others, sympathize with others in suffering, help those in danger, support those in need, and feel joyous over others gains and sorrowful for then losses just as we do over our own gains and losses. If every one of its cherish a loving heart, is there any conflict in the world that cannot be resolved?
