Freedom is not given to us by anyone; we have to cultivate it ourselves.
—Thich Nhat Hanh
This compendium of the core teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh, based on a talk given at the Maryland Correctional Institution, shows how mindfulness practice can cultivate freedom no matter where you are.
When you understand the pain of those who cause you suffering and choose to let it go, forgiveness will come naturally.
—from the foreword by Sister Châng Không
[T]he power of the setting and the teacher’s generosity jump off these pages…This is living Buddhism at its best.
This beautiful little compendium of the core teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh actually says all you need to know in this world. It makes a thoughtful gift.
