A Rose for Your Pocket: An Appreciation of Motherhood
Translated into several languages and having sold over 2 million copies worldwide, A Rose for Your Pocket is a beautiful prose poem on motherhood by Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. He reminds us of the qualities embodied by our mother and will lead the reader to a new and deeper appreciation of his/her mother whether she is still be alive or has passed away. Thich Nhat Hanh presents the various traditions in which motherhood is celebrated in cultures around the world and shares the story of how his wish to become a monk affected his relationship with his own mother.
Previously only available as a staple bound 14 page booklet, this completely revised and redesigned edition is a combination of the original A Rose for Your Pocket text, with additional material on the role and importance of motherhood based on more recent teachings by Thich Nhat Hanh, a meditation on the "Interbeing" of mother and child, as well as the practices of mindfulness and finding our true home. It concludes with instructions for the beautiful Rose Ceremony.
