Overview

"[Thich Nhat Hanh] shows us the connection between personal, inner peace and peace on earth." --His Holiness The Dalai Lama

Nominated by Martin Luther King, Jr. for a Nobel Peace Prize, Thich Nhat Hanh is one of today’s leading sources of wisdom, peace, compassion and comfort.

With hard-won wisdom and refreshing insight, Thich Nhat Hanh confronts a subject that has been contemplated by Buddhist monks and nuns for twenty-five-hundred years— and a question that has been pondered by almost anyone who has ever lived: What is death?

In No Death, No Fear, the acclaimed teacher and poet examines our concepts of death, fear, and the very nature of existence. Through Zen parables, guided meditations, and personal stories, he explodes traditional myths of how we live and die. Thich Nhat Hanh shows us a way to live a life unfettered by fear.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Thich Nhat Hanh is a holy man, for he is humble and devout. He is a scholar of immense intellectual capacity. His ideas for peace if applied, would build a monument of ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity." —Martin Luther King, Jr.

"He shows us the connection between personal, inner peace, and peace on earth."—His Holiness The Dalai Lama

"Simple but profound." —The Denver Post

"[A] masterwork... Thich Nhat Hanh has rendered us an invaluable service by opening our hearts and minds." —Spirituality & Health Journal

"At some point in their lives, most people are haunted by the question 'What happens after death?' Beloved teacher, poet, and activist Thich Nhat Hanh takes this question to heart in his latest book about how to understand death and stop fearing life...His advice is founded on personal examples, and guided meditations help readers grapple with the loss of a loved one, confront their mortality, and live each day to its fullest." —Tricycle

"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."
