Interbeing: Fourteen Guidelines for Engaged Buddhismby Thich Nhat Hanh, Fred Eppsteiner
The Fourteen Mindfulness Trainings of the Order of Interbeing have been newly updated. These ethical guidelines remain a penetrating expression of traditional Buddhist morality as practiced in contemporary times. Interbeing presents each training and a commentary by Thich Nhat Hanh. Embedded in these reaches is a practical blueprint for living mindfully that has proved meaningful to people from all walks of life. Also included are a brief history, ceremonies, and the revised charter of the Order of Interbeing, whose members meet worldwide to practice these guidelines in the pursuit of happier, more peaceful lives.
Vienamese Zen master and peace activist, Thich Nhat Hanh became a Buddhist monk at the age of sixteen. In the 1950s, he and his fellow monastic and lay friends formed the movement known as Engaged Buddhism to make their religion relevant for the times.
Thich Nhat Hanh is the author of more than thirty books that have sold more than 1.5 million copies in English. He is one of the widest-selling Buddhist authors in the United States. Thich Nhat Hanh travels worldwide teaching the art of "mindful living". His books appear in twenty-nine languages.
