Cultivating The Mind Of Love: the practice of looking deeply in the Mahayana Buddhist tradition
'I am continually amazed at how Thich Nhat Hanh is able to translate the Buddhist tradition into everyday life and make it relevant and helpful for so many people. CULTIVATING THE MIND OF LOVE just might be my favourite book of his.' —from the forward by Natalie Goldberg.
In CULTIVATING THE MIND OF LOVE, Thich Nhat Hanh shares heartfelt moments in his own formation - drinking the clear water of a hermit's well; seeing a drawing of the Buddha on the cover of a magazine; becoming a monk to practice for his generation, his society, and the world; and falling in love. Interweaving these episodes with a close examination of key Mahayana Buddhist texts, including the DIAMOND, LOTUS and AVATAMSAKA SUTRAS, Thich Nhat Hanh helps the reader understand the 'interbeing and interpenetrating' nature of all that is, overcome the notions that stand in the way of direct experience, and enter the 'Avatamsaka realm of ultimate reality.' With masterful simplicity and clarity, he shows us ways to cultivate our own 'mind of love' and bring joy and hope to ourselves and many others.
Thich Nhat Hanh is a poet, Zen Master, and peace activist. He served as chair of the Buddhist Peace Delegation to the Paris Peace Talks during the Vietnam War, and was nominated by Dr Martin Luther King Jr. for the Nobel Peace Prize. He is the author of seventy-five books, including LIVING BUDDHA, LIVING CHRIST, OLD PATH WHITE CLOUDS, and PEACE IS EVERY STEP.
"Thich Nhat Hanh is one of the most beloved Buddhist teachers in the West, a rare combination of mystic, scholar, and activist." —New Age Journal
