A timeless introduction to Thich Nhat Hanh’s most important teachings, this spiritual classic reveals the connection between peace in oneself and peace in the world.
Being Peace was one of Thich Nhat Hanh’s first books published in the United States. Intended for peace activists and as a commentary on the peace movement of the time, the book became a sensation, and continues to be an indispensable guide along the path more than thirty years later, as Thich Nhat Hanh himself has become an internationally renowned spiritual leader.
Translated into more than thirty languages and with half a million copies sold in the US alone, reading Being Peace is like drinking a cool glass of water on a hot day. Many of the hallmarks of Thich Nhat Hanh’s teaching appear here for the first time, in his trademark clear and steady style. The book’s opening has become one of his most widely quoted teachings: “Life is filled with suffering, but it is also filled with many wonders, such as the blue sky, the sunshine, the eyes of a baby. To suffer is not enough.”
Available in this stunning hardcover commemorative edition for the first time, this is the perfect introduction to Thich Nhat Hanh’s work, for yourself or for your loved ones.
