More great stuff from Thich Nhat Hanh Sep 16, 2010

I'm not a Buddhist, but feel a real inner connection to Buddhist teachings. The Dalai Lama and Thich Nhat Hanh are my two favorite "teachers" reads. It's very hard to read anything by either of them and not have your inner self nod in agreement.
As with many other of Thich Nhat Hanh's books, his insights into how to live a calmer, more fulfilling life are straight forward and seem quite do-able. I've learned how to be more peaceful and happy just through learning how to wash dishes, thanks to his teachings. Who would ever think one would come to actually like washing dishes? I do. (now)
This is a great book for anyone who would like to learn about different ways to meditate in everyday life, (yes, let your dishes be part of it) and gain a few insights into basic Buddhist teachings.
