πŸ“˜ Happiness – by Thich Nhat Hanh

This is Thich Nhat Hanh’s best book, in my opinion. It is the most concise description of the two greatest gifts of his teaching. Firstly, a gentle and simple way to practice mindfulness in everyday life. Secondly, mindful activities that can be used to build a sangha, a meditating community.

“All these practices have the same basic purpose: to bring our minds back to our bodies, to produce our true presence, and to become fully alive so that everything happens in the light of mindfulness.”

The book is short and to the point, but it’s rich with practice tips. It gives a real flavour of the style of practice and how it changes our experience of life. After explaining how to practice as an individual, he covers the group or sangha practices of the Plum Village tradition that he has created.

“We can recognize that we have a treasure of enlightenment, understanding, love, and joy inside us. It’s time to go back to receive our inheritance. These practices can help us claim it.”
