Right I have always had an interest in Budhism but done very little about it, I have skimmed the odd book and liked what I saw. But this book is a master piece, something that always raises my mood and has helped me deal with stress and depression. The ideas and information have helped me understand myself and the world around me on a far deeper level than I had achieved before. The explanations so clear that the conclusions seem simple and obvious. If you are of any religious creed or even atheist or agnostic this book is still a great read. The more I read it the more I realise that buried deep in the bible there are real teachings about how to live.
I wish I was more eloquent and could actually express how brilliant this book is. All I can say is
BUY THIS BOOK!
I try to buy copies for anyone that I think will read it and think deeply about it.
I have been curious about Thih Nhat Hanh/s teachings for awhile. This guide is a great starting point. Alot of ground is covered. The principles may look simple but I think that is a factor of the teachers deep wisdom. Very pleased to have this at my fingertips.
I have read Thich Nhat hanh's books for many years and I love this book. It is small enough to carry around and you only need to read a sentence or two to feel his wisdom and practicality coming through. It is just right for someone like myself but also appeals to people who have only just discovered his writing.
Truly loved this book and Thick Nhat Hanh he is inspirational.I am so glad I read this book and will read many More of his work. His teachings have uplifted me and I follow his path. Thank you for sharing.
