When winding down at the end of the day, this tiny volume is like a cool drink of water on a hot day. Thich Nhat Hanh, a Buddhist monk and renowned meditation teacher, explains in simple terms what it means to be awake to the world and how to find deep happiness. This is a book to be read slowly, a page or two at a time, savoring the words and pondering their meaning. As far as I can tell, it is all true, which cannot be said of most books.

Shelves: spirituality
This was a lovely translation and commentary on 2 fundamental Buddhist texts. I'm a bit of a Nhat Hanh fan-boy so I have a biased perspective, but I get so much out of his commentaries and teachings. I find myself challenged and guided to new insights with the seeds his words plant in me. This is a great text to read, study and meditate with as we make our spiritual journey.
