Daoism is a Chinese religion that traces its roots back to the Warring States period in China. Historically it has been divided into two different groups, the philosophical Daoism of the Daojia (道家) and the religious Daoism of the Daojiao (道教). However, recent academic research points to Daoism without this division, where Daoism starts with a philosophical movement and then evolves into a religious movement. Both of these share the same terms and trace their creation back to the same source. In this paper I introduce the philosophical concept of non-action (無為) and compare it with the non-action found in the Taipingjing, a religious Daoist text, in order to investigate the changes that occurred in this Daoist evolution. Through this comparison, it is found that the concept of non-action, possibly due to the difficulty in understanding the concept itself, did not evolve in the way that other philosophical terms did, to create religious teachings that were necessary to establish a religious following.
