Cultivating The Mind Of Love
Thich Nhat Hanh begins with a moving story from his past. When he was a young monk, he fell deeply in love with a young nun. How he translates his passion for a woman into a passion for the world is a breathtaking process..."Where is the self? Where is the non-self? Who is your first love? Who is your last? What is the difference from your first love to your last? How can anything die?" Originally subtitled "The Practice of Looking Deeply into the Mahayana Buddhist Tradition" (for some reason this was dropped in the newer editions) he also discusses the Mahayana traditions and concepts while presenting practical information about meditation. An excellent review by Binh Anson.
