    First, I want to make a distinction between what I d like to call cultural Buddhism and secular Buddhism Secular Buddhism, much like secular Christianity, is a distilled version of cultural Buddhism made to fit the vogues of our society Offensive elements are purged, unreasonable stories and precepts dismissed, and what you have left is a perfectly digestible form of th

    If you re looking for an erudite, comprehensive overview of mainstream Buddhist thought, The Heart of the Buddha s Teaching is an adequate choice, but prepare for a long, hard slog Thich Nhat Hanh is at his best when he s telling stories from his own life his time in Vietnam during the war, or stories about the Buddhist community he started in France Unfortunately, most

    I loved this book I think I love Buddhism, but please, please, please, don t make me take a test on it.When I decided I wanted to know about Buddhism, it was because of my developing interest in yoga I can t tell you how exactly Buddhism is related to yoga, but it surely is First of all, I find no need for faith in yoga or Buddhism It works I practice yoga, I feel better

    Let us look at a wave on the surface of the ocean A wave is a wave It has a beginning and an end It might be high or low, or less beautiful than other waves But a wave is, at the same time, water Water is the ground of being of the wave It is important that a wave knows that she is water, and not just a wave We, too, live our life as an individual We believe that we have

    Lucid and helpful with great presentation of Noble Eightfold Path especially.Thoroughly enjoyed reading it and am incorporating parts of it in my meditation.

    One of the difficult books I have read, to the point where I am not sure I got out even a tenth of what Thich Nhat Hanh put into it I will want to revisit this in the future, once I have let it settle in.I was bothered by some of the symbolism and examples, such as this The Buddha offered this example A young couple and their two year old child were trying to cross the dese

    book by a prominent Buddhist monk outlining key teachings of Buddhism I started off rather liking it as an approach to mindfulness and how to process suffering and the good things about life But after he Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path, I started to get a bit irritated with the constant discovery of new lists of important spiritual things, from the Two Truths up to t

    I have been savoring this book for some time, and was lucky to have it with me while trapped on planes and in airports and on an overnight detour to Detroit Hanh s teachings didn t quite transform the ordeal into great spiritual practice, but they did vastly improve the experience Many of his other books can be read almost as a philosophy of Buddhism here he explains the basic

    This book by Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh goes into a lot of the background from the later life teachings of the Buddha such as the Lotus Sutra, so in a way, it s about what the Zen school of Buddhism or Mahayana sects in general teach Concepts are well explained with copious footnotes, and it remembers the Indian roots of Buddhism throwing in Sanskrit Pali terms i

    160813 this is a very useful book for me, helping to clarify exactly what is the difference between religious and philosophical texts, what I like about Buddhist thought, what I learn, what I generally do not note as far as difference ethical assertions within a metaphysical superstructure, ontological arguments, referring often to texts or authorities or stories, is religion conceptual exploration of said superstructure, of metaphysics, of arguments, referring often to other philosophical texts, is philosophythere are a lot of numbers here, lists of behaviours or concepts, which are perhaps useful for practitioners but confusing or boring to usual readers, do hold together, do seem to best reconcile various apparent disagreements through the distinction of relative truth and absolute truth, for example but I remember only the primary lists found in all Buddhist texts the four noble truths, the eightfold path, the three baskets, the three jewels the other lists, well described, would probably be something for extensive studylike his insistence on the inter dependence aspect of the world, his chosen metaphor of the individuality of each wave but the essential unity of the water which manifests each wave, his truthful recognition to which we must agree in how every flower is in fact the entire world, the sun, the rain, the soil, the gardener who tends it some beautiful poetic insights, some accessible metaphors, which you can extend according to your knowledgeso for a serious student of the religion, this book rates higher, but for me, whose interest is philosophical, it is perhaps interesting to read how Buddhism has developed, how a Buddhist monk explains it, but does not convince me to assume Buddhist thought on any practical level beyond recognizing the basic lists, the ideas of lust, hatred, delusion, the inescapable reality of transience and this sounds like a little, but as any wave is of an entire ocean, this is actually everything
