"Our biggest fear," says poet and Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, "is that we will become nothing when we die. If we think that we cease to exist when we die, we have not looked very deeply at ourselves."
It is possible to live every day without being afraid of what will happen when we die. Through a close examination of who we are, how we exist, and how we live, we can conquer our fears to live a freer and happier life. Through stories and lucid teachings, Thich Nhat Hanh brings peace of mind to a difficult subject and shows us how to live a happier life, free of fear.
