Book Overview

A renowned Zen master and Nobel Peace Prize nominee introduces a Buddhist approach to practicing authentic love in our everyday lives

In this eye-opening guide, Zen monk Thich Nhat Hanh offers timeless insight into the nature of real love. With simplicity, warmth, and directness, he explores the four key aspects of love as described in the Buddhist tradition: lovingkindness, compassion, joy, and freedom--explaining how to experience them in our day-to-day lives. He also emphasizes that in order to love in a real way, we must first learn how to be fully present in our lives, and he offers simple techniques from the Buddhist tradition that anyone can use to establish the conditions of love.

Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk, is an internationally known author, poet, scholar, and peace activist who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Martin Luther King Jr.

Simple, yet effective, recommended Dr. Goin. Six of his books were purchased by me, and they all contain great advice on obtaining true happiness and love by practicing mindfulness, gratitude, and compassion in everything we do. They also spoke of how to deal with anger and sadness. These are Christian practices, and they are practical, real and stem from Jesus' same teachings.

This is a great book. If you want to stay married, you must first get married. The book is a simple but succinct introduction to love and Buddhism. You are truly the greatest gift you can give another person, he said.

I gifted a copy of this to someone close to whom I did not identify. The connection of love as we see it and our similarities. This is a beautiful way to share beliefs in a very understandable way, Raymond said.
