Publisher's Summary

"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 happens when we die. Through a close examination of who we are, how we exist, and how we live, we can conquer our fear to live a freer and happier life. Through stories and lucid teachings, Thich Naht Hanh brings peace of mind to a difficult subject, and shows is how to live a happier life, free of fear.

Mesmerizing, Insightful. I am in Awe!

I could not put this book down. It gave me so much insight and helped in easing my fear of so many things in life including death. I was raised Catholic and I always had so many questions. This book simplified and answered many of those questions. Thank you for this blessing.

A true blessing

If you are suffering over the loss of a loved one, these words in this book will bring you peace. If you have the fear of death for you or a loved one, these words will bring you peace. If you value evidence, reason, and logic when looking deeply at the world and this life, these words will bring you peace. These words are remarkable and have led me to practice whole heartedly the wisdom and loving kindness Thich Nhat Hanh and the Buddha share. I have tremendous gratitude for having had the gift of hearing these words. Love

Comforting Indeed

I am fairly new to meditation and Buddhist teachings. I found this book to be full of useful, accessible metaphors to begin understanding the teachings. I also found the tone to be full of kindness and compassion. I look forward to listening to it again.

simple and Powerful

the concepts presented in here are things that we all know but we all lose sight of. the practices that are presented here help us to keep these insights firmly in mind and allow us to practice in our daily life the things that lead us away from suffering and toward genuine happiness.

Thick Nhat Hanh

Mr. Hanh has many books, and I read a few of his books, and so far this one is my favorite. Much information and at times repeated a bit often with intention, I believe, to make a very different state of mind clear, which was appreciated. This is a type of book I plan on rereading from time to time for it's importantce of content.

Eckart Tolle jokes that his talks are about One Thing; T.N.Hahn is similar, but still writes a book every 2 years

Another clear communication about Buddhism and how our minds are busy but often miss the big picture which often requires quietness of the mind. One of his books is enough to get you 99% to Zen. This one is as good as others, like “Happiness”.
