Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Reviews for the previous edition
“Thich Nhat Hanh skillfully penetrates, like a diamond needle, to the very marrow of his subject. In its suitably quiet way, this book is a masterpiece.”
&#8212New Asia review

“Thich Nhat Hanh’s narrative and meditation on love and compassion is so skillfully presented that before one knows it, the gap between master and student, between Asian and American, and between East and West has seamlessly melted away.”
&#8212Parabola

“Thich Nhat Hanh’s most personally revealing work.”
&#8212Turning Wheel

“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 favorite book of his ”.
&#8212From the Foreword by Natalie Goldberg, author of Writing Down the Bones
