The Lotus Sutra is one of the most revered Mahayana sutras and is sometimes called “the king of sutras.” Stamped with his signature depth of vision, lucidity, and clarity, Thich Nhat Hanh’s insights based on the wisdom of the Lotus Sutra invoke a wide range of contemporary topics and concerns. He demonstrates the practical and direct applicability of Buddhist teachings to today’s issues, from the Palestinian-Israeli tragedy to the threat of terrorism and the degradation of our environment.
Opening the Heart of the Cosmos suggests radical new ways of solving universal, contemporary conflicts and challenges governments and the United Nations to act as a community and work for peace and harmony in the world. This book shines sixty years of study and practice upon one of the crowning scriptures of the path of the Buddha.
