Editorial Reviews

New York Times
“Among Buddhist leaders influential in the West, Thich Nhat Hanh ranks second only to the Dalai Lama.”
Dalai Lama
“Thich Nhat Hanh shows us the connection between personal, inner peace and peace on earth.”
Martin Luther King
“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 to ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity.”
Sogyal Rinpoche
“Thich Nhat Hanh writes with the voice of the Buddha.”
Thomas Merton
“Thich Nhat Hanh is more my borther than many who are nearer to me in race and nationality, because he and I see the exact same way.”
Robert Lowell
“Thich Nhat Hanh is a real poet.”
Marianne Williamson

If you want to read and learn about forgivness, this is the novel you have been waiting for! I never knew that monks can write such a wonderful book about love and sexual energy that makes people do action that they will regret for their whole life. I really enjoyed this book, and I know all who read this will too. I love you Thich Nhat Hanh.
