Synopses & Reviews
In this sequel to The Miracle of Mindfulness, Thich Nhat Hanh draws on psychology, philosophy, and contemporary physics to investigate meditation and interdependence. Rooted in Buddhist understanding, The Sun My Heart is at once an intellectual adventure and an inspiration to practice.
The Sun My Heart is one of Thich Nhat Hanhs most beloved books. Using the objects and events of everyday life in his hermitage in Plum Village the gradual settling of the pulp in a glass of apple juice or the wind blowing into the room and scattering papers about Thich Nhat Hanh draws from Buddhist psychology, epistemology, and the world of contemporary literature and science to guide the reader along the path of clarity and understanding. This book can be read straight through, but is also designed to be opened randomly and experienced chapter by chapter, paragraph by paragraph. Nhat Hanh suggests that the book prefers to be a friend rather than a book. You can take it with you on the bus or subway as you do your coat or your scarf. It can give you small moments of joy at any time.”
