© and (P)1996 by Thich Nhat Hanh; (P)1994 Sounds True
This is one of my favoriate books by Thich Nhat Hanh. It is the foundations of his teachings and one that I have referred back to over and over.
The stories that are told are very inspirational.
I would compare it to "The Present Moment" by Thich Nhat Hanh. The content is different and yet the message of love and compassion is very similar.
The story of David and Angelina was my favourite!
Yes, the moment when Thich Nhat Hanh says that his driver is his "Angelina". And when he describes having a wall of "Angelina's". And it inspired me so much to think of all the "Angelina's" in my life and to honour them.
Love and compassion radiates throughout this recording.
The Master is incredible. It would have been even better if the recording had been remastered to edit out the coughing in the audience, which at times became distracting.
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.
I got about five minutes through before getting bored to death. The narration goes at a snail's pace, the narrator has a very thick accent that makes the audio feel clunky, and the content just feels like a series of very obvious and not insightful statements.
"This book made my spirit smile."
This book made my spirit smile. A beautiful book by a beautiful spirit. With wisdom.
