Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
"Our biggest fear," Thich Nhat Hanh writes, "is that we will become nothing when we die. If we think that we cease to exist when we die, we have not looked very deeply at ourselves." Exploring that deepest fear and the very nature of existence, the author of Living Buddha, Living Christ teaches readers how our fear of annihilation can actually help us learn how to conquer fear. Sound crazy? "Freedom from notions," the author gently reminds us, "is the purpose of our practice."
From the Publisher
"Thich Nanht Hanh is a holy man, for he is humble and devout. He is a scholar of immensed intellectual cpacity. His ideas for peace, if applied, would build a momument to ecumenism, to wold brotherhood, to humanity." —Martin Luther King, Jr.

    A SPIRITUAL AND INSPIRING READ

    Thich Ngat Hanh has given me a different perspective on life and all it's changes. One needs to meditate deeply into what he is saying.

    I am the slave

    Fight me, mate me, injure or hurt me, or even kill me. I am a slave and i will let anyone use me for anything. You can buy me at the third result, there can be several buyers. (Remember we are cats) and you can do anything you want to me. You get to name me, dress me (there are items for sale in the second result), and other things. Go to the third result to buy me and the second result to buy things to dress me in.
