Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since its publication in 1987, Being Peace has become a classic of contemporary religious literature. In his simple and readable style, Thich Nhat Hanh shows how our state of mind and body can make the world a peaceful place. We learn to transform the very situations that pressure and antagonize us into opportunities for practicing mindfulness.

Review:

"[Hanh] is a person whose very presence brings peace wherever he is. His writing is simple and clear. This book is for everyone." Fellowship Magazine

Review:

"Free of jargon and eminently practical, this wise and joyous book celebrates the spirituality inherent in daily life." Library Journal

About the Author

Thich Nhat Hanh has lived an extraordinary life in an extraordinary time. Since the age of sixteen he has been a Buddhist monk and a peace activist. During the war in Vietnam, he worked tirelessly for reconciliation between North and South Vietnam. His courageous efforts to generate peace moved Martin Luther King Jr. to nominate him for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967. Forced into exile because of his efforts to negotiate peace in Vietnam, he continued his social activism, founding universities and social service organizations in his homeland and working to rescue boat people. Thich Nhat Hanh is the author of many books including such important classics as Peace Is Every Step and Anger. He lives in France.

A great book! It's a collection of Thich Nhat Hanh's lectures that he gave to peaceworkers and meditation students during his tour of Buddhist centers in 1985. Among many things, he talks about walking meditation, sitting meditation, how our environment affects us and how we handle situations affects not only us, but those around us. Definitely a book that should be read several times throughout a lifetime...and should be given as a gift to others.
