Buddha Mind, Buddha Body
Thich Nhat Hanh opens this inspirational follow-up to Understanding Our Mind with the question, Is free will possible? That query becomes a leitmotif as the author considers how the mind functions and how we can work to cultivate freedom and understanding in mind, spirit, and body. Nhat Hanh discusses the connection between psychology, neuroscience, and meditation. He describes the importance of creativity and visualization in a successful meditation practice, presents basic Buddhist practices, particularly walking and sitting meditation, and writes movingly about the importance of brotherhood and sisterhood in finding love, happiness, and harmonious coexistence with others. Punctuated with memorable stories from the life of the Buddha as well as anecdotes and observations from his own life, Buddha Mind, Buddha Body conveys powerful life lessons in Nhat Hanh’s characteristically light, humorous style.
