Publisher's Summary

With poetry and clarity, Thich Nhat Hanh imparts comforting wisdom about the nature of suffering and its role in creating compassion, love, and joy–all qualities of enlightenment. 

“Thich Nhat Hanh shows us the connection between personal, inner peace, and peace on earth.”—His Holiness the Dalai Lama

In The Heart of the Buddha’s Teaching, now revised with added material and new insights, Nhat Hanh introduces us to the core teachings of Buddhism and shows us that the Buddha’s teachings are accessible and applicable to our daily lives.

Covering such significant teachings as the Four Noble Truths, the Noble Eightfold Path, the Three Doors of Liberation, the Three Dharma Seals, and the Seven Factors of Awakening, The Heart of the Buddha’s Teaching is a radiant beacon on Buddhist thought for the initiated and uninitiated alike.

Philosophical enlightenment

As this is the first book I have read on Buddhism, I am not sure whether the book covered all the aspects of Buddhism. Nevertheless, the topics that were covered in the book were explained clearly without any ambiguity. The narration was done at the right pace and was excellent. Reading the book, I got a real understanding and a deep appreciation for the philosophies of Buddhism. It gave me a very balanced view and perspective of life. I believe practicing the principles entailed in the book will help everyone to have an enhanced life experience irrespective of their religious beliefs.
