"Thich Nhat Hanh shows us the connection between personal, inner peace and peace on earth."

-H. H. the Fourteenth Dalai Lama

 

THIS MOMENT IS THE GATEWAY TO ENLIGHTENMENT. It is the only moment we have to be joyful, mindful, and awake. The key is to be there for yourself-to learn to be fully present in your life. This, Thich Nhat Hanh explains, is the heart of Buddhist practice.

In this introduction to the practice of presence, the beloved Buddhist teacher provides indispensable insight on the essentials of Buddhist thought and offers a range of simple, everyday practices for cultivating mindfulness. These teachings empower us to witness the wonder of life and transform our suffering, both within us and around us, into compassion, tenderness, and peace-not in some long and hard struggle, but in this very moment. As Thich Nhat Hanh declares,

"the energy of mindfulness is the energy of the Buddha, and it can be produced by anybody." It's as simple as breathing in and breathing out.

A Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk, THICH NHAT HANH (1926-2022) was an internationally renowned author, poet, scholar, and peace activ-ist, and was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Martin Luther King Jr. He is the author of numerous books, including the best-selling Living Buddha, Living Christ; Anger: Wisdom for Cooling the Flames; Peace Is Every Step; and The Miracle of Mindfulness.
