Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh uses the Lotus Sutra, one of Mahayana
Buddhism's most revered texts, to illustrate the Buddha nature inherent
in everyone. With great passion and clarity, he demonstrates how each
human being has the capacity to transform their individual suffering,
develop compassion, and help create more peace in the world.
Nhat Hanh's insights invoke a wide range of contemporary topics and
concerns, from war and the threat of terrorism, to individual anxiety
and the degradation of our environment. In proposing radical new
solution to current conflicts, he encourages each of us to work on our
own mindfulness practice to create greater peace and harmony. His
thought and accessible reading of the sacred text demonstrates its
practical and direct applicability to today's concerns.
