Finding Our True Home presents a new definitive translation of the Amitabha Sutra along with Thich Nhat Hanh’s first commentary on one of the most practiced forms of Buddhism in the world, the Pure Land school.
Introduced in the Buddha’s own lifetime, Pure Land practice puts us in touch with the beauty in our own world and brings us the security, solidity, and freedom we need in order to truly enjoy it. Realizing that Buddha is within us, we see that the Pure Land (paradise) is here and now, rather than in the future.
Thich Nhat Hanh examines the Amitabha Sutra and reveals how it is capable of transforming suffering and bringing true happiness to anyone in the East and West today. Finding Our True Home will open a new Dharma door to many students of meditation.
Born in Hue, Vietnam, Thich Nhat Hanh is a Buddhist monk, poet, scholar, and human rights activist. In 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize. He is author of more than one hundred books, and is one of the best known Buddhist teachers in the world today. Previous best-selling books include Being Peace and Buddha Mind Buddha Body. He lives at Plum Village, his meditation center in France, and travels worldwide, leading retreats on the art of mindful living.
With stories from East LA to the jungles of Peru, this honest and no-jargon collection by a rising young star of mindfulness focuses on compassion as the toughest and fiercest response of all. Available 11/7/17. Pre-order here.
