Being Peace by Thich Nhat Hanh
Item # 9781946764683
Being Peace by Thich Nhat Hanh was one of the author's first books published in the United States. Intended for peace activists and as a commentary on the peace movement of the time, the book became a sensation, and continues to be an indispensable guide along the path more than thirty years later, as Thich Nhat Hanh himself has become an internationally renowned spiritual leader.
Translated into more than thirty languages and with half a million copies sold in the US alone, reading Being Peace is like drinking a cool glass of water on a hot day. Many of the hallmarks of Thich Nhat Hanh's teaching appear here for the first time, in his trademark clear and steady style. The book's opening has become one of his most widely quoted teachings: "Life is filled with suffering, but it is also filled with many wonders, such as the blue sky, the sunshine, the eyes of a baby. To suffer is not enough."
