This is so much more than a book. It's absolutely an experience. I have walked alongside the Buddha for 572 blissful pages. Thich Nhat Hanh delivers a beautiful narrative of the Buddha's life, including his path to enlightenment and all his teachings in the years that follow. Imbedded within the Buddha's story are many stories about other followers, monks, and nuns, how they struggled, and how they came to follow the Buddha. Many of the Buddhas teachings are contained within this text and explained beautifully. The book is easy to read, but you want to take your time with it, letting everything wash over you and sink in. The process of reading it mindfully is a beautiful meditation. Highly recommend for anyone seeking to improve their spiritual life, regardless of their religion. The Buddha's precepts apply to us all.
