Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everyone wants peace, but as anyone who has tried to find it knows, the biggest obstacle is often our own powerful emotions. In Taming the Tiger Within, Thich Nhat Hanh distills the wisdom of his many books into short meditations and contemplations for applying his advice to daily life--for transforming anger, fear, jealousy, and other difficult emotions. An acclaimed scholar, peace activist, and Buddhist master revered by people of all faiths, Thich Nhat Hanh has inspired millions worldwide. Now, he focuses his profound spiritual insight on the basic human emotions we all struggle with every day: anger, fear and love. Drawn from his national bestsellers No Death, No Fear; Anger; and Going Home and grounded in the Buddhist practices of mindfulness and compassion, this handbook of meditations and reflections offers readers inspirational and pragmatic techniques for diffusing anger, conquering fear, and cultivating love in every arena of life.
