Description About the author Contents
Bestselling author and Zen Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh is one of the most respected peace activists in the world. Having lived through two wars in his native Vietnam, he strives to prevent conflict of all kinds, from the internal violence of individual thoughts to interpersonal and international aggression. For the first time, in Creating True Peace, he tells vivid, deeply affecting stories of his and his students' wartime experiences in Vietnam and how they were able to remain nonviolent and work for peace in the face of the most stressful, dangerous, life-threatening circumstances.
The same teachings and practices that Nhat Hanh and his studentsuse every day can help us, too, to create peace in our own lives, in every moment. With a combination of courage, sweetness, and candor, Nhat Hanh brings to life the ancient wisdom and stories of the Buddha and other sages and reveals a clear, practical blueprint for living nonviolently today- no matter what your circumstances. For anyone who sincerely desires to create peace, here are practices to improve all our relationships - friendships, partnerships, marriages, even our relationships with our elected representatives. Here, too, are beautiful, simple meditations and mindful practices for individuals, couples,and parents, along with ways to teach children how to create peace in their daily lives and to improve family communications. From this book, we can all draw the determination and inspiration to do the right thing, to make a difference. We are not helpless; we can create peace here and now. Creating True Peace shows us how.
