Touching the Earth , $11.66
Based on the loving-kindness and compassion meditation of the Lotus Sutra, Touching the Earth contains one of the most popular and transformative practices of Thich Nhat Hanh. Written in short simple meditations, it is a step-by-step guidebook to the practice of Beginning Anew, containing clear instructions and over forty guided meditation verses. It allows the reader to practice alone or with others by engaging in an "intimate, poetic conversation with the Buddha."
The Beginning Anew practice has the capacity to put an end to obstacles brought about by wrongdoing in the past, and it restores the feeling of being alive. It presents an opportunity to heal relationships through forgiveness and embrace one's ancestors, parents, teachers, and self. It has become a widely used tool of inclusiveness and reconciliation and an essential ingredient to become a bodhisattva, a peaceful warrior.
