Description

Reviews for the previous edition:
"Nhat Hanh's meditations illuminate the connection between spirituality and social action and point us to the value of mindfulness in everyday life."--"Publishers Weekly"
"A beautiful, wise, sensitive book for Buddhists and those open to learning from other traditions. Highly recommended."--"Library Journal"
"Thich Nhat Han's deep understanding of the precepts [trainings] and his actual contact with today's suffering make these reworkings profound." --"Turning Wheel"
"The insightful and penetrating commentaries on the precepts, by one of the wisest and most compassionate spiritual guides of our times, offer challenging responses to the most difficult moral dilemmas we face." --"Fellowship in Prayer"
QUOTE
"Violence, racial injustice, alcoholism, sexual abuse, environmental exploitation, and so many other problems compel us to find ways to stop the suffering that is rampant in ourselves and in society. To realize peace in our daily lives, we need some guidelines. 2,500 years ago, the Buddha offered Five Wonderful Precepts as a practice to help us live a peaceful and wholesome life."
--Thich Nhat Hanh
Endorsements
"The teaching of the Buddha is said to be 'vast and profound'. I firmly believe that it has the power to transform our society, but only if more and more men and women come to embody it in their lives, living in mindfulness and acting with compassion both toward themselves and toward others. The great and gentle strength of Thich Nhat Hanh's teaching is to show us that a vision of a world in peace is not only possible, but that it begins here, begins now, with each one of us looking deeply within, and honoring limitless potential. We can change the world by how we live, and nothing less than the survival of our species on Earth may be at stake. As human beings, to live in wisdom, and to love in compassion, is not only our responsibility, but our birthright."
Sogyal Rinpoche - author of "The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying"
