If this is your first experience with this amazing insightful writer and thinker, you are in luck. 'Happiness' covers every aspect of his thoughts, beliefs and teaching in one volume . From the importance of being aware of our breath and breathing to keep us in the present moment to how to do the smiling meditation which is so relaxing. He explains his philosophy of how we should live and respect nature and each other; how to sustain good relationships and improve less healthy ones; how to stay physically and emotionally healthy; our contribution to society and role within it; food and healthy agriculture, Short and long spoken meditations for every aspect of our waking day to remind us to be grateful and mindful of what we have and how to treasure it and achieve peace of mind and happiness as the title implies. All these aspects are then treated in different books more in depth, but this, along with 'Peace is every step' will change anyone but the most entrenched person's life. you will benefit greatly from reading it, and hopefully will go back to it time and time again. Beware! Just reading it may have some effect but it's only by putting his teaching into practice and making it part of your daily routine that you will really benefit from his writing.

Well, if you've scrolled down as far as the reviews, you're probably thinking about reading this book. I think you should - it's simple, insightful, profound, and leaves you feeling like you've just had a hug from a Zen Master. The title says it all, but if you'd like a further justification, think of it as offering possibly one of the best returns on your investment this year. This is the only item I've brought from Amazon that has inspired me to write a review, though I've had 'happiness' from all of the other things. Go on, click the button; you know you want to ;-)

This is a book which manages to be both simple and profound. I refer to it often, and I practise meditations from it. It has changed the way I think, and helped me change for the better.

Happiness is a user friendly guide into the bliss of mindfulness - I would recommend it to anyone, particularly those who are always busy, stressed or anxious. If you are never in the moment and always thinking of the next thing on your endless 'to do' list, you are not really living. This book can help you break the cycle, it is also a pleasure to read and contains beautiful language. Bliss.

Excellent read, explains about our path to happiness, and what stops us from achieving this by simply projecting all the time...... Staying in the moment, and realising the happiness we have all around us if we just care to sit still for a while and realising how blessed we are in this very moment and in the 24 brand new hours we are given everyday.

Really great book to read I passed it on after I had read it as it was that good. Anyone who is interested in this should read this book first as it is an easy first read to understanding mindfulness.

Accesible and delightful, though idealistic the ideas and thoughts are worth deep consideration and I would love to visit Plum Village.
