    Learn how complete awareness can open the door to lasting transformation in work, worship, love, and all other areas of your life. Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh's acclaimed theory of mindfulness explores ways to shine the light of awareness into our intimate relationships. He examines Buddhism's four basic qualities of authentic love: kindness, compassion, joy, and freedom.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Thich Nhat Hanh presents a depth of truth so simply, so accurately, so profoundly that it's really easy to miss it unless you truely listen hard, and then again, and then again. It's a bottomless well of wisdom. Told by one of the wisest, most loving, most gentle and loving souls living today.

    In the words of the Buddha, the four foundations of mindfulness (the four sadhipatthanas) are " the direct path for the purification of beings, for the surmounting of sorrow and lamentation, for the disapperance of dukkha (suffering) and discontent, for the acquiring of the true method, for the rea;ization of Nibbahna." Within the quinitessential discourse called the Satipatthana Sutta, we find the Buddha's seminal teachings on the practice of meditation.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. I love J. Goldstein, but this is not his best. In fact, I hope it's his worst because I found it so lacking in his usual wit and cleverness, so dry, I've pretty much given up on listening to it all the way through. If you're looking for a lot of technical information, and don't mind ploughing through this, it could be fine.


    What was most disappointing about Joseph Goldstien’s story?

    Lacked his witty and fun take on Buddhism.


    Was Abiding in Mindfulness, Vol. 3 worth the listening time?

    Only if your dead set to get technical information - a scholar who doesn't mind reams of dry presentation.


    Any additional comments?

    Too bad. Normally, I love everything he does. He's a true teacher, but he forgot to laugh in this.
