Description

Product Description

“Among Buddhist leaders influential in the West, Thich Nhat Hanh ranks second only to the Dalai Lama.” —New York Times

“Thich Nhat Hanh is a holy man…. His ideas for peace, if applied, would build a monument to ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity.” —Martin Luther King, Jr., nominating Thich Nhat Hanh for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967.

In this much-anticipated follow-up to his bestselling classic, Peace Is Every Step, Thich Nhat Hanh—one of the most revered spiritual leaders in the world today—offers an insightful guide to living a fuller life. In this deeply insightful meditation, the world-renowned Vietnamese Zen Buddhist master, poet, scholar, and peace activist illuminates how each of us can incorporate the practice of mindfulness into our every waking moment. In the tradition of The Art of Happiness and Living Buddha, Living Christ, Thich Nhat Hanh’s Peace Is Every Breath opens a pathway to greater spiritual fulfillment through its patient examination of how we live our lives.

From the Back Cover

Spiritual practice is possible for all of us.

You cannot say, "I''m just too busy, I have no time for meditation." No. Walking from one building to another, walking from the parking lot to your office, you can always enjoy walking mindfully, and enjoy every one of your steps. Each step you take in mindfulness can help you release the tension in your body, release the tension in your feelings, and bring about healing, joy, and transformation.

—from the Introduction

Offering personal anecdotes, meditations, and advice for mindfully connecting with our present experience, Zen master and international bestselling author Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how we can discover within the here and now our own innate ability to experience inner peace and happiness. We do not need to escape reality to harness the joy that is possible with every breath we take.

I was in my local library looking for a book to manage stress that was not "wordy". I picked this one up, (still have it at home), and immediately ordered my own copy. I knew I would be referring to it for the rest of my life. If you are like me, as I start each chapter my mind goes "Yeah, but..." and by the time I am finished it is clear. The breathing techniques this monk describes are simple and make sense. I use them everyday now and try to stay in the moment. If you have a horrible childhood that effects you to this day, maybe this will be of some help. It puts things in perspective and provides a way to look at life I had not considered. AND helps me clear my brain when trying to go to sleep...worth every penny.

This is one of most refreshing books I''ve ever read, quite frankly. It is the ONLY book, outside of personal copies of our scriptures, that my wife and I have purchased two copies so we could each have our own - it''s that good. It''s very easy reading, and can be read small bits at a time or straight through with ease. If you''ve ever even thought about using breathing meditation, whether you''re interested in the "Zen" philosophy or not, this is a truly great read.

There is a 21 minute YouTube video of the author being interviewed by Oprah Winfrey. I do not enjoy watching Oprah, yet that did not detract from the video in any way for me. I highly recommend it! (There are shorter extracts of it - be sure to watch the 21 minute version from her Super Soul Sunday program.) Thich Nhat Hanh is truly one of a kind, and in his mid-80s, is a soon-to-be-lost world treasure. I wish I''d learned about him decades ago. (My wife could not be any more positive either - so this deserves a double 5-star rating, since we purchased two copies.)

I love me a good Thich Nhat Hanh book. They''re usually quick and simple to digest, chock-full of easily-applied sage wisdom from one of the most influential Buddhist leaders in the West. “Peace is Every Breath” is no exception.

Hanh is a world-renowned Vietnamese Zen Buddhist master, poet, scholar, and peace activist who attempts to show people how to incorporate the practice of mindfulness into each and every waking moment. The followup to his bestselling classic, “Peace is Every Step”, the chapters of this book flow together as a helpful guide that the reader can use to live a fuller life.

He writes:

“Mindfulness is what brings us back in touch with what''s happening in the present moment in our body, in our feelings, in our thinking, and also in our environment. It enables us to be present in the here and the now, mind and body together, aware of what''s going on inside us and around us. And when we are very mindful of something, we are concentrated on it.”

This book shows the reader how it is possible to practice cultivating mindfulness in each and every moment, featuring short chapters on various everyday activities that are often tedious and unmemorable for most of us, such as waking up each morning, eating breakfast, and brushing your teeth. I think that Hanh successfully unpacks the concept that we can continue our meditation or yoga practice even if we have gotten up from our zafus or stepped off our mats for the day. While I enjoyed the first book, “Peace is Every Step”, a bit better than this one, I still think that “Peace is Every Breath” is well worth reading and would encourage you to check it out if you''re in need of a relaxing deep breath.

If there is only one book you can read it is this book. It is written in love, compassion, understanding and no judgement. The words of Thigh Nhat Hanh are needed for our troubled lives

I bought this after reading some of his quotes. This book has been an amazing read for me. I recently lost my husband quite unexpectedly and was left devastated with emotional pain. This read has been incredibly comforting and indeed life altering. I suggest this read to anyone whether they are practiced in meditation and their faith or not. I have been on a spiritual journey for most of my 61 years and this is something I would like everyone I know to read.

Teachings that I aspire to live by, but am so far away from consistent practice. I guess nothing that is truly worthwhile will be easy. This book is a good place to get started on the path to enlightenment.

I like the simple expressions of Buddhist-like wisdom . A book to have handy to pick up any time. Not the sort of book to sit and read through though you might be inspired to do this. This guy has written many books.

Simple and accessible.
Reviewed in Canada on August 7, 2013
At times Thich Nah Hanh is almost too simply elegant in his writing: we run the risk of missing the pure genius of the essential ideas. This is a book to be savoured in small chunks and he''s designed it that way, breaking it up into your life and your day.

Like Present Moment, Wonderful Moment this takes everyday actions and brings meaning to them by the method of a short gatha, verse and a commentary. We all perform certain actions each day often mechanically and we can transform the most mundane aspects of our daily life and give them as much attention as we do with our meditation practice. Indeed Thich Nhat Hanh''s teaching is that the ordinary aspects of our life are as important as seated meditation. We are not doing this action in order to get it over with and on to the next ''thing'' that action is important and sacred in its own right. So it is helpful to have a path through our lives and become aware of what we are doing rather than being on automatic pilot or lost in thought. A helpful, practical and poetic book.
