Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Among Buddhist leaders influential in the West, Thich Nhat Hanh ranks second only to the Dalai Lama.” —New York Times

“Thich Nhat Hanh is a holy man…. His ideas for peace, if applied, would build a monument to ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity.” —Martin Luther King, Jr., nominating Thich Nhat Hanh for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967.

In this much-anticipated follow-up to his bestselling classic, Peace Is Every Step, Thich Nhat Hanh—one of the most revered spiritual leaders in the world today—offers an insightful guide to living a fuller life. In this deeply insightful meditation, the world-renowned Vietnamese Zen Buddhist master, poet, scholar, and peace activist illuminates how each of us can incorporate the practice of mindfulness into our every waking moment. In the tradition of The Art of Happiness and Living Buddha, Living Christ, Thich Nhat Hanhs Peace Is Every Breath opens a pathway to greater spiritual fulfillment through its patient examination of how we live our lives.

Synopsis:

Spiritual practice is possible for all of us.

You cannot say, "I'm just too busy, I have no time for meditation." No. Walking from one building to another, walking from the parking lot to your office, you can always enjoy walking mindfully, and enjoy every one of your steps. Each step you take in mindfulness can help you release the tension in your body, release the tension in your feelings, and bring about healing, joy, and transformation.

—from the IntroductionOffering personal anecdotes, meditations, and advice for mindfully connecting with our present experience, Zen master and international bestselling author Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how we can discover within the here and now our own innate ability to experience inner peace and happiness. We do not need to escape reality to harness the joy that is possible with every breath we take.
