The Diamond That Cuts Through Illusionby Thich Nhat Hanh
In The Diamond That Cuts Through Illusion, the Buddha and his disciple Subhuti teach us how to cut through our dualistic ways of looking at the world in order to have a deeper contact with the wondrous reality that is inside us and all around us. In his lively and penetrating commentaries, Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how this understanding, which he calls "the dialectics of the Prajnaparamita," leads to a deep reverence for the environment, and he applies these teachings of the Buddha to our own experience, giving practical examples from community and family life, couple relationships, and social service.
