It's a rare and magnificent discovery when I encounter a book that changes my perspective on life. This is one of those books! This book is the perfect reprieve for us stressed out, professional city dwellers. It encourages patience, calmness and acceptance. If all of this sounds too cliche to you, you need the book more than I did. Not a book to be read just once - a book to cherish and live by. Read it, love it, live it. And then repeat.

The Miracle of Mindfulness speaks with you simply, directly, and precisely. The author is a storyteller, a teacher, and a speaking partner at the same time. He speaks with you in an unassuming, honest manner that you are compelled to listen. In this safe, free, state of mind, the words become a part of you. The words and the teaching dance with your thoughts: it becomes beautiful within you. The wisdom finds its way to your soothed heart. The teaching comes about easily and naturally. It is an excellent book, not to learn about mindfulness, but to become mindful.

Thich Nhat Hanh's Miracle of Mindfulness will always have a special place in my heart. It was the first book of his that I read, and it still seems to me the best example he has written about remaining mindful during difficult and challenging times. His writing is very personal, but easy to grasp. He offers vignettes that illustrate Bhuddhist tennants of non-attachment and mindfulness. Too often, these books about Buddhism can be esoteric or hard to follow, but Hanh's book is easy to digest and very relatable to everyday people.

thich nhat hanh's gentle teachings are so clearly illustrated in this volume. he teaches that peace is not something that is illusive, but rather a constant state of being that can be attained by all who are willing to look at the present moment.

The writings of Thich Nhat Hahn were recommended to me by a Soto Buddhist Monk. After reading this book, I add my own recommendation. An excellent introduction to Meditation and Buddhism. The path through everyday life is a varied one. Each moment on that path can be experienced only if we are paying attention. That is what Thich Nhat Hahn calls 'Mindfulness'. If only for the moment that you are reading the book, you are mindfuly aware, then Thich Nhat Hahn has done his job.

Thicht Nhat Hanh is an important voice for our World. Living in the present moment and mindfulness of our connectedness with all matter and energy in the Cosmos puts us in our proper place in time.

All of Thich Naht Hanhs books have helped me in my daily life tremendously. Anyone who wants to live a better, happier and overall more peaceful life should read any of his books and apply these principles to their life.
