Buddha, Living Christ /
Booklist , 09/15/95 Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, author of more than
70 books, is truly a universal spiritual teacher whose mission is to
translate Buddhist precepts into language everyone can understand and
to explain the practice of mindfulness in terms of contemporary life.
These efforts are in keeping with the Buddhist belief in open-mindedness
and the acceptance of change, as is Nhat Hanh's recognition of Jesus
as "one of his spiritual ancestors." As he carefully compares
key aspects of Christianity with Buddhism, Nhat Hanh distinguishes between
the historical and the living Jesus and Buddha, celebrates common ground
shared by their teachings, and explicates important differences. His
ability to see beyond dogma is in sharp contrast to the rigidity of
certain Christian perspectives, a contrast Nhat Hanh discusses with
respect and urgency. If there is to be understanding, compassion, and
peace in the world, spiritual teachers must learn to honor the "jewels,"
or "best values," at the heart of diverse traditions, and
to keep their own alive by interpreting them in light of the here and
now. Donna Seaman Copyrightę 1995, American Library Association.

associate says: "The definitive guide to the meditation experience.
Though I know it isn't beneficial, I spent years trying to fit all the
pegs in their proper holes in my meditative practice. Questions like
"If they feel that why do we feel this?" or "Is this
experience the same as that, only named differently?" or "Who's
really correct?". With one read this book resolved all my issues
and doubts about the validity of my own path, Vipassana, and how my
practice relates to all others. I've learned how everything does sort
of fit together, at least generally so, and much to my teachers' delight
I am able to plunge more deeply into practice without reservation. I
have no more doubts!"

the rush of modern life, we tend to lose touch with the peace that is
available in each moment. World-renowned Zen master, spiritual leader,
and author Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how to make positive use of the
very situations that usually pressure and antagonize us. For him a ringing
telephone can be a signal to call us back to our true selves. Dirty
dishes, red lights, and traffic jams are spiritual friends on the path
to "mindfulness" -- the process of keeping our consciousness
alive to our present experience and reality. The most profound satisfactions,
the deepest feelings of joy and completeness lie as close at hand as
our next aware breath and the smile we can form right now.
