Thich Nhat Hanh offers a Buddhist view of love along with techniques for manifesting it in our daily lives.
A Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk, Thich Nhat Hanh is an internationally known author, poet, scholar, and peace activist who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Martin Luther King Jr. He is the author of numerous books including the bestselling Peace Is Every Step and The Miracle of Mindfulness. He has founded monastic communities in France, Vermont, and California and teaches actively around the world.
Zen monk Nanh offers his insights into love as private emotion and public force in his thought-provoking guide to Buddhism's four key aspects of love. Narrator James Gimian, a Buddhist himself, relates Hanh's ideas with admirable clarity. However, listeners may find themselves struggling to get through the entire recording as Gimian's delivery is fairly monotonous. For those able to focus on the message rather than the medium, there is much to be gained by repeated listening. A Shambhala hardcover. (Mar.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
