Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An ideal starting-point for those interested in Buddhism, Being Peace contains Thich Nhat Hanh's teachings on peace and meditation. Using real examples from his own life, as well as poems and fables, Nhat Hanh explains his key practices for living "right in the moment we are alive." These lessons are taught with fine writing and sparkling phrases that draw the reader in and make Being Peace a book that encourages multiple readings, both alone and in groups.

This new edition of Nhat Hanh's seminal bestseller marks the book's first update since it was released in 1987. It includes a new introduction by noted Buddhist Jack Kornfield and beautiful illustrations by internationally recognized artist Mayumi Oda. Still as timely as when it was first published over 15 years ago, Being Peace is a revelation for anyone concerned with the state of the world and the quality of life.

Synopsis:

Being Peace is a timeless introduction to Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and his most important teachings. First published in 1987 and translated into more than thirty languages, this spiritual classic reveals the connection between our own personal happiness and the state of the world around us.

Thich Nhat Hanh's key practices are presented in simple and clear language, offering practical suggestions for creating a more peaceful world "right in the moment we are alive." Being Peace is a must-have for those interested in Buddhist practice and a perfect starting point for anyone concerned about how to create peace in themselves and the world. This newly revised edition contains an introduction by author and spiritual teacher Jack Kornfield.
