The text of Using Mindfulness in Every Day Life was originally written in Vietnamese as a long letter to Brother Quang, a main staff member of the School of Youth for Social Service in South Vietnam in 1974. Its author, a Buddhist monk, had founded the school in the 1960s as an outgrowth of "engaged Buddhism". The school drew young people deeply committed to acting in a spirit of compassion.
Since this time the text has found its way to the Western world and developed a following of epic proportions. It has been touted as the must-have manual for all those who seek enlightenment or wish to learn more about the Buddhist way.
Using Mindfulness in Every Day Life has been translated into over 30 languages and has been printed or distributed on every continent in the world.
