Publisher Comments:

In this little treasure, Thich Nhat Hanh offers a Buddhist view of love along with techniques for manifesting it in our daily lives. In his characteristically direct, simple, and compassionate style, he explores the four key aspects of love as described in the Buddhist tradition: loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and freedom. In order to love in a real way, Thich Nhat Hanh explains, we need to learn how to be fully present in our lives. In True Love he offers readers the technique of conscious breathing as a method for synchronizing the mind and body to establish the conditions of love, and a mantra practice for generating and sustaining love.

After reading Pema Chodron's When Things Fall Apart, I came across this wonderful little book. With very few words, Hahn is able to pass along a treasure of simple, practical ways in which we can care for ourselves and others in our lives. Being in the present moment and appreciating ourselves is quite simple, and the sentences he provides as little mantras to use in meditation exposed the feeling for me that the root of a lot of discontent in life is simply based on the fact that we our not very nice to ourselves. Reminders for "being there" for both ourselves and others is the biggest part of healing old hurts.
