In the 1960s, Thich Nhat Hanh founded a School of Youth for Social Service in Vietnam. The school's members practised "engaged Buddhism" and helped to rebuild bombed villages, teach children and organize cooperatives during the Vietnam War. This book was first written as a letter to the School after Thich Nhat Hanh's exile to France. Thich Nhat Hanh, poet, Zen master and chairman of the Vietnamese Buddhist Peace Delegation during the Vietnam War was nominated by Dr Martin Luther King Jr for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Review:

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
