Simplicity in all things is essential for right living in a complex world. Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh speaks plainly of the need for ethics and meditative practice in The Mind of Transformation. In this talk given in London in March 1999, the venerated and much-beloved Hanh explains meditation and actively practicing ethics moment by moment in his characteristically humble style. Holy men rarely make great showmen, and this one is no exception; patience and receptivity are required of the viewer in order to absorb his message fully. This may be a strength of the production--only those with the interest and attention to follow Hanh's slow, accented English are likely to benefit. Missing only the unmistakable physical presence of the deeply spiritual, The Mind of Transformation gives a good seat before a master teaching of the Buddhist Threefold Training. --Rob LightnerFrom the Back Cover:
Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh is widely acknowledged as one of the great spiritual teachers of this century. He was ordained as a Buddhist monk in 1942. He worked tirelessly for peace throughout the war in Vietnam and was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Marin Luther King. Thomas Merton said of him, "Just the way he opens a door and enters a room demonstrates his understanding. Her is a true monk." Now living in exile in France, Thich Nhat Hanh has established Plum Village, a retreat center where Western and Vietnamese people live together in harmony and offer a place of spiritual transformation to thousands of visitors each year. This talk, given in London in March, 1999, is based on the traditional Buddhist Threefold Training. Thich Nhat Hanh explains how the practice of ethics and of meditation leads to insight and transformation.
