UN SENTIERO VERSO LA FELICITÀ
Ogni passo dovrebbe essere amore.
Ogni passo dovrebbe essere perdono.
In questo nuovo libro, il maestro Thich Nhat Hanh rivolge un appello ai cittadini di ogni tradizione, cultura e religione per porre le basi di una etica rinnovata capace di traghettare l’umanità verso un mondo di pace e di condivisione della ricchezza, in cui vengano superate tutte le divisioni e sia possibile vivere in totale armonia. Attraverso pratici esercizi di mindfulness ed esempi tratti dalla vita e dagli insegnamenti del Buddha, il monaco vietnamita indica un percorso interamente basato sulle Quattro nobili verità del buddhismo: è solamente attraverso la consapevolezza dell’esistenza del dolore e la ricerca delle radici del male che si può procedere alla comprensione delle sue cause per poter finalmente intraprendere la via verso la felicità e fondare un’etica globale basata sul rispetto reciproco.

While this is a review for one of his books, I have read a couple of other books by him ("Fear", "Silence") and this review is equally valid for them (and many others written by him) because are all connected and revolve around very similar central themes. These books are certainly not to be compare Leggi tutto
A framework for engagement with the world derived from Buddhist principles (the 4 Nobles Truths and the Eightfold Path). The thing that stood out most to me were the emphasis on introspection, to understand the causes of your own suffering and that of others in order to build empathy. The emphasis o Leggi tutto
I enjoyed the breadth of topics covered that the author mentioned to be connected to his Buddhist beliefs, but at the same time I feel that his explanations did not go deep enough to make sense or satisfy me on a few sections.
A simple book of guidance that I should go back to often. Speak truthfully, without lies. Speak consistently, without saying one thing to one person and something else to another. Speak respectfully, without insult. Speak accurately, without exaggeration.
One of the most life-changing books I have ever read. Read this again and again.
