“Among Buddhist leaders influential in the West, Thich Nhat Hanh ranks second only to the Dalai Lama.” —New York Times

“Thich Nhat Hanh is a holy man…. His ideas for peace, if applied, would build a monument to ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity.” —Martin Luther King, Jr., nominating Thich Nhat Hanh for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967.

In this much-anticipated follow-up to his bestselling classic, Peace Is Every Step, Thich Nhat Hanh—one of the most revered spiritual leaders in the world today—offers an insightful guide to living a fuller life. In this deeply insightful meditation, the world-renowned Vietnamese Zen Buddhist master, poet, scholar, and peace activist illuminates how each of us can incorporate the practice of mindfulness into our every waking moment. In the tradition of The Art of Happiness and Living Buddha, Living Christ, Thich Nhat Hanh’s Peace Is Every Breath opens a pathway to greater spiritual fulfillment through its patient examination of how we live our lives.

"Thich Nhat Hanh has been writing and talking about mindfulness for nearly fifty years. In the bestselling classic, Peace Is Every Step, the Zen Master introduced us to the peace that is available to us in each moment. This past year Thay, as his students call him, sat down to pen this book because he believes that the busyness of our lives has gotten out of control and led to unnecessary unhappiness. In Peace Is Every Breath, he does not argue that we put our lives on hold or stop living our fast-paced lives. Far from from it in fact, in this jewel of a book Thay illuminates how mindfulness can help us thrive and transcend the mad rush of our days and discover that within the here and now, the rituals of our days, we have the ability to experience true happiness. Thay guides us through the day offering personal anecdotes, meditations and advice for mindfully connecting with our present experience. We do not need to escape reality to harness the joy and peace we can experience with every breath we take. In Peace Is Every Step Thich Nhat Hanh introduced the world to idea that through mindfulness we can find peace. With Peace Is Every Breath, he takes this concept further and makes it even more applicable to our busy, modern lives. Thich Nhat Hanh believesthat now more than ever we need to use the power of mindfulness to heal ourselves from the many stresses that surround us. Peace Is Every Breath is a timely book filled with timeless wisdom and practical advice that is destined to become a classic"--

This is a powerful book which set me straight on what meditation is. essentially, the author says, meditation only means being aware of what is going on in our bodies, our feelings, and our minds. What he talks about is so simple like admiring nature that I'm very keen on following the simple steps. I borrowed this book from the library but since it is a keeper I'm buying it.
