Cultivating the Mind of Love [New Edition]
Looking Deeply in the Mahayana Buddhist Tradition
New edition. Thich Nhat Hanh shares heartfelt moments from his own experience of recognition and awakening, interweaving these episodes with a close examination of key Mahayana Buddhist texts, including the Diamond Sutra, Lotus Sutra and Avatamsaka Sutra. He helps the reader understand the interbeing and interpenetrating nature of all that is, overcome the notions that stand in the way of direct experience, and enter the Avatamsaka realm of ultimate reality. With masterful simplicity and clarity, he shows us ways to cultivate our own mind of love and bring joy and hope to ourselves and many others.
"I am continually amazed at how Thich Nhat Hanh is able to translate the Budhhist tradition into everyday life and make it relevant and helpful for so many people. Cultivating the Mind of Love just might be my favourite book of his, because it is about one of our all time favourite subjects and the one we`re most confused about - love." Natalie Goldberg.
