Book Synopsis



Zen master and one of the world's most beloved teachers returns with a concise, practical guide to understanding and developing our most powerful inner resource--silence--to help us find happiness, purpose, and peace.

Many people embark on a seemingly futile search for happiness, running as if there is somewhere else to get to, when the world they live in is full of wonder. To be alive is a miracle. Beauty calls to us every day, yet we rarely are in the position to listen. To hear the call of beauty and respond to it, we need silence.

Silence shows us how to find and maintain our equanimity amid the barrage of noise. Thich Nhat Hanh guides us on a path to cultivate calm even in the most chaotic places. This gift of silence doesn't require hours upon hours of silent meditation or an existing practice of any kind. Through careful breathing and mindfulness techniques he teaches us how to become truly present in the moment, to recognize the beauty surrounding us, and to find harmony. With mindfulness comes stillness--and the silence we need to come back to ourselves and discover who we are and what we truly want, the keys to happiness and well-being.

"In his new book, Thich Nhat Hanh offers tips on finding some internal and external silence so we can hear the call of beauty. We discover how to pay attention, how to listen deeply, and how to be still. Silence, says Thich Nhat Hanh, is profoundly joyful and nourishing." -- Shambhala Sun

"How do we practice mindfulness? As we have come to expect, Hanh's instructions are accessible and concise: 'You stop, you breathe, and you clear your mind.'" -- Sam Mowe, Spirituality & Health
