The world-renowned Buddhist monk offers his personal, heartfelt, and often surprising answers to 50 of the most common questions he has ever been asked
Posed to Thich Nhat Hanh by participants in his retreats and from his students, readers will discover that we all share the experience of carrying with us the one question that has always seemingly stood in the way. It may block the next step in our personal development, the development of our spiritual practice, or our understanding of ourselves.
6 thematic sections make the book easily accessible for those new to Buddhism as well as for more experienced practitioners:
• Daily Life
• Living and Dying
• Engaged Buddhism
• Mindfulness Practice
• Family and Relationships
• Children's Questions
Thich Nhat Hanh's answers condense Buddhist wisdom of 2,500 years into individual answers that shine with diamond-like clarity and summarize his own insights based upon a lifetime of practice.
These exchanges offer an accessible way into Buddhist teachings and often mix practical immediately applicable suggestions with ideas for further study and contemplation. The conversations also provide a lively glimpse into the connection between students and their teacher.
