Finding Our True Home is an examination of the Amitabha Sutra, a central sutra of the Pure Land School of Buddhism. Thich Nhat Hanh skillfully melds mindfulness practice and Pure Land Buddhism in his commentary and shows the relevance of the practice for people of all faiths. Everyone has the desire to create and live in an environment that is a "Pure Land" - a place of peace and harmony. He reveals how students of meditation can use Pure Land practice as one of many Dharma doors that can bring happiness and transform suffering. A practice since the time of the Buddha, Pure Land practice puts us in touch with the beauty in our own world and brings us security, solidity, and freedom.

I understand this explanation of Pure Land Buddhism better than others I have read. The Pure Land is an inner state of happiness + peace. Читать весь отзыв

Об авторе (2003)

Thich Nhat Hanh was born in central Vietnam on October 11, 1926. He entered Tu Hieu Temple as a novice monk at the age of sixteen. During the Vietnam War, he was part of a movement called "engaged Buddhism", which combines traditional practices with nonviolent civil disobedience. For this, he was exiled by both the Communist and non-Communist governments and was nominated by Martin Luther King, Jr. for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967 for his efforts to reconcile North and South Vietnam. He is a teacher, author, poet, and peace activist. He has written over 100 titles on meditation, mindfulness and Engaged Buddhism, as well as poems, children's stories, and commentaries on ancient Buddhist texts. His books include The Heart of the Buddha's Teaching: An Introduction to Buddhism, Peace Is Every Step, The Miracle of Mindfulness, The Art of Power, True Love and Anger, Vietnam: Lotus in a Sea of Fire, and Living Buddha, Living Christ. He founded a retreat in France called Plum Village.
