For more than six decades, Thich Nhat Hanh has engaged people all over the world with his accessible approach to Buddhism and his devotion to peace. Looking back on his long life, Hanh teaches Dharma through 87 personal reflections and stories of his early years in Vietnam, and his formative experiences travelling around the world to teach mindfulness. In these thoughtful vignettes, Hanh uses his boyhood love of cookies as a springboard to discussing meditative eating, explains how (and why) he learned how to hug, inspires a Vietnam veteran to help disadvantaged children, and offers a thought-provoking view of the hereafter.
