bookshelves: buddhism
Recommended for: Beginners and Experienced practitioners.

I've read this commentary and translation of these two suttas, Theranamo Sutta and Bhaddekaratta Sutta several times over the years, and this time I taught it to a group of students, both beginners and experienced, and went deeper than I'd ever done before. Simple, short, succinct as they are, they contain great wisdom, the core teachings of the Buddha, and very practical and pragmatic explication on what it means to "live in the present moment."

I am grateful to Thay Nhat Hanh for this simple book, and if conditions permit, I know I'll be sharing these profound teachings many times over!
