In troubled times, there is an urgency to understand ourselves and our world. We have so many questions, and they tug at us night and day, consciously and unconsciously. In this important volume Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh—one of the most revered spiritual leaders in the world today—reveals an art of living in mindfulness that helps us answer life’s deepest questions and experience the happiness and freedom we desire.  Thich Nhat Hanh presents, for the first time, seven transformative meditations that open up new perspectives on our lives, our relationships and our interconnectedness with the world around us. Based on the last full talks before his sudden hospitalization, and drawing on intimate examples from his own life, Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how these seven meditations can free us to live a happy, peaceful and active life, and face ageing and dying with curiosity and joy and without fear. Containing the essence of the Buddha’s teachings and Thich Nhat Hanh’s poignant, timeless, and clarifying prose, The Art of Living provides a spiritual dimension to our lives. This is not an effort to escape life or to dwell in a place of bliss outside of this world. Instead, this path will allow us to discover where we come from and where we are going. And most of all, it will generate happiness, understanding, and love, so we can live deeply in each moment of our life, right where we are.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In elegant prose, stitched with stories from his Vietnamese homeland and years in Paris, Hanh lays out wisdom from the poignant to the practical…The Art of Living offers an exit ramp from the madness of modern-day overdrive and just might let us grasp the heaven on Earth.” Chicago Tribune
“In this sturdy and enlightening work, Thich Nhat Hanh explores seven key meditations…with ample grace and abounding insights. We were immensely impressed with Thich Nhat Hanh’s writings on aimlessness and resting in God, impermanence and the futility of trying to live forever, and the art of letting go as a means of releasing our suffering.” Spirituality & Practice
“[An] exposition of Buddhist principles…a thought-provoking introduction.” Booklist
