Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh leads us to a new and deeper appreciation of motherhood. Using Buddhist teachings, recollections of his own mother, and rituals from around the world, Nhat Hanh reveals our deep interconnectedness with our mothers. Full of personal stories of love, struggle, and reconciliation, this book is a gift to treasure.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese poet, bestselling author and peace activist, has been a Buddhist monk for over 40 years. He was chairman of the Vietnamese Buddhist Peace delegation during the Vietnam War and was nominated by Dr Martin Luther King for the Nobel Peace Prize. In 1966 he visited the US and Europe on a peace mission and was unable to return to his native land. Today he heads Plum Village, a meditation community in south-western France, where he teaches, writes, gardens and aids refugees worldwide.
A Rose for Your Pocket is a beautifully composed essay on motherhood. A thoughtful gift for Mothers' Day, and that means every day!
