Answers from the Heart: Practical Responses to Life's Burning Questions Cover

 

Review-A-Day

"Nhat Hanh doesn't shy away from the hard questions in this book. Random questions include, "Can mindfulness practice help us live with our sexual energy and remain loyal to our spouses and partners?" or "What can we do when a person attacks us physically? May we use force in order to protect ourselves? Can a country use force to protect itself?" Nhat Hanh answers questions such as these on a multitude of levels. However, in the end, they always rest on three things: boundless compassion towards all beings (including ourselves!), the necessity of being totally present to everything that arises in our lives and experiences and approaching those experiences in a state of total awareness, and the recognition of the ethic inherent in our interbeing.

What is the right way to live?
How do I balance my work and my family?

How can I repair my relationship with my parents?

In Answers from the Heart, each answer is a concise summary of Thich Nhat Hanh's own insight based on his lifetime of practice. Together, the question and answers provide a useful guide for dealing with concrete problems, an accessible way into Buddhist teachings, and a lively glimpse into the connection between students and their teacher.

Review:

"Anyone familiar with Thich Nhat Hanh's writings will relish this book of questions and answers; it covers a lot of ground!" Spirituality and Practice

Description:

For many people, one key question prevents them from taking the next step in their personal development, the development of their spiritual practice, or their journey toward self-knowledge. Answers from the Heart collects 50 of these important and heartfelt questions posed to Thich Nhat Hanh by his students and participants in his retreats, along with his often surprising answers.

The exchanges are divided into six thematic sections Daily Life, Living and Dying, Engaged Buddhism, Mindfulness Practice, Family and Relationships, and Children's Questions and combine practical, immediately applicable suggestions with ideas for further study and contemplation. The questions are from all ages and interest groups and provide a lively glimpse into the connection between students and their teacher.

Hanh's answers condense 2,500 years of Buddhist wisdom into individual answers that shine with clarity and that summarize his own remarkable insight based on a lifetime of practice.
