"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."
