I simply love his teachings and have enjoyed his books, as well as articles in the Shambhala Sun. His words are easy to read and absorb. They are simply put, yet profound. I love analogies, and he uses many to illustrate his point. Very helpful to me in uncovering some of the reasons why I react as I do at times.

A Long-Awaited Treasure Nov. 24 2010
By Brian Kimmel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Thich Nhat Hanh has written a book that helped me to touch the very deepest roots of suffering, anger, violence and neglect within myself, and the generations that are a part of me. A path toward living happily and at peace even amidst suffering. Through the teachings, stories and practices offered in this book, I found the fertilizer for my own practice. Taken to heart, applied honestly, with wisdom and with encouragement from trusted friends, the flowering of peace within individuals, families and society can be made possible.

Thich Nhat Hanh writes, "Many of us practice sitting meditation in order to run away from suffering...we behave like a rabbit going back into its hole in the earth in order to feel protected...We do this because we suffer so much, we want some kind of rest, some kind of running away. But that is not the true purpose of meditation...We have to use our intelligence and concentration to get insight, transform the suffering within, and become a Buddha, an enlightened one, a free person...Without suffering, without the understanding of suffering, true happiness is impossible."

My advice: Buy this book for yourself, for a person you love, and for a person you think may need it, who may be open to receiving it. Smile, and enjoy!

If you made it this far..... March 23 2011
By Raoul - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am not one to review every item I buy from Amazon, but as a Hanh reader and someone who is a father to a beautiful young man I feel I have something to communicate with you. My father left the family when I was five and after 35 years of no correspondence, I didn't know if he was dead or alive, he decides to come back and "complete the circle".

You know, I was quite well to this man and gave him a clean slate, until I found that he had lied to me about a step sister I didn't know of. That is where the relationship turned as I went into warrior stance precipitated by the wounded youngster in me. As a father myself I have gained some tools and without this book I wouldn't know how to be my own father. I know, sounds a bit strange but bear with me.

Upon further reviews of my father relative to behaviors, my sister (the mental health pro), diagnosed him with NPD ([...]). This is an important part prior to my reading of Reconciliation as it added a POV for my forgiveness and understanding of someone who hurt me very much and who had also been hurt very much himself growing up.

Basically the book connects the dots that we are everyone of our ancestors, good, bad and ugly. Alive or dead, and even if we did not get to know them very well we carry their genetics and through our parents inherited the problems that they could not reconcile.

I can not stress the importance of this wonderful book as I believe everyone should read it. I will buy a copy for my father and with Thich Nhat Hanh's help I believe I will not commute the family issues any further, but instead bring a view of the suffering as a opportunity to learn more compassion.

P.S. If you do not have that mental health professional as a sister, as I have, here are some resources:
[...]

With Blessings!

I'm an avid follower of Thich Nhat Hanh and I think this is the clearest and most effective expression of his and the Buddha's teachings.

By Brenda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very life changing for me. This book has helped tremendously to find inner truths, and to feel whole again as a person. I recommend this to anyone who wants to transform their life! You will get out of it all that you put into it, and then some!

My deepest thanks to Thich Nhat Hanh for writing it.

Healing and Transformation Dec 29 2010
By WyldWoodsWomyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A must read for anyone following or contemplating a spiritual path. It's message is simple yet profound, and presented in a way that makes sense to all ages and situations. Thich Nhat Hanh is a masterful teacher, and this, his latest book, is possibly his best yet, offering simple insights that can help to transform individuals and society.
