Miracle of Mindfulness is a sly commentary on the Anapanasati Sutra, the Sutra on Breath to Maintain Mindfulness. "Sly" because it doesn't read like a dry commentary at all. One of Thich Nhat Hanh's most popular books, Miracle of Mindfulness is about how to take hold of your consciousness and keep it alive to the present reality, whether eating a tangerine, playing with your children, or washing the dishes. A world-renowned Zen master, Nhat Hanh weaves practical instruction with anecdotes and other stories to show how the meditative mind can be achieved at all times and how it can help us all "reveal and heal." Nhat Hanh is a master at helping us find a calm refuge within ourselves and teaching us how to reach out from there to the rest of the world. --Brian Bruya --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Instructions from a Zen Buddhist masterReviewed in the United Kingdom on March 27, 2019
Thich Nhat Hanh is a Vietnamese Zen Buddhist master, a revered teacher around the world. His teachings are clear and compelling, with flashes of subtle humour. The first half of the book is easily accessible and becomes deeper and more detailed after that. But if someone were to read the descriptions of his life and work and the initial teachings and PRACTICE THEM it is hard to think of a better introduction to skilful means to change your life. A treasure of wisdom. The start of the most important journey of your life.

An okay book but not as good as Power of Now which also has mindfulness as its central theme.Reviewed in India on February 12, 2017
This book is the original book that started the mindfulness cult in the west. This is also the basis of other popular books like Eckhart Tolle's "The Power of Now". The book teaches how to focus on your breath thereby leading to a quieter mind. The main issue with this book is that it seems to be a one trick pony and through the entire book it is only breath control which is stressed under different situations like meditating, walking, working etc. It does not have any philosophical insight about meditation in Buddhism. The latter half of the book is mind deadening repetition of reminding one to watch one's breath. If you are looking for salvation then will this book deliver - to some yes but to many no. Is this book useful. Yes in a limited way - however, "The Power of Now" which also has mindfulness as its central theme is better written, edited and offers more insight into mindfulness. In the end it is my experience that no book can be the one and only in the quest for nirvana - lot of them offer a rung but just like a ladder you need many rungs for the ladder to be useful.

Keep Calm.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on May 30, 2018
Brilliant to help you focus on the small, ge in mind. And be calm in your life. Not by changing it. But by how you react to your life.
