With poetry and clarity, Thich Nhat Hanh imparts comforting wisdom about the nature of suffering and its role in creating compassion, love, and joy – all qualities of enlightenment.

In The Heart of the Buddha’s Teaching, now revised with added material and new insights, Nhat Hanh introduces us to the core teachings of Buddhism and shows us that the Buddha’s teachings are accessible and applicable to our daily lives.

Well meaning with brief moments of insight, but largely tedious. It felt like an endless amount of lists and repetitive phrasings. I really tried to give this text every benefit of the doubt, but I kept putting it down in boredom. There are better ways to teach than this pedantic method. Perhaps the monk is a better speaker than writer? ( )

Some good insights mixed with 80% drivel. ( )
