No Death, No Fear: Comforting Wisdom for Life
Book Summary of No Death, No Fear: Comforting Wisdom for Life
(Thich Nhat Hanh) shows us the connection between personal, inner peace and peace on earth' His Holiness the Dalai Lama'Thich Nhat Hanh writes with the voice of the Buddha' Sogyal RinpocheThich Nhat Hanh says: 'Our biggest fear is that we will become nothing when we die. If we think that we cease to exist when we die, we have not looked very deeply at ourselves.'With his usual blend of stories, exquisite analogies and guided meditations, Thich Nhat Hanh takes the reader through the same examination of death, fear and the nature of existence that Buddhist monks and nuns have been performing in their meditations for 2500 years. The understanding of no death comes from exploding the myth of how we think we exist. Knowing how we actually exist produces the state of no fear. This is a new subject for Thich Nhat Hanh and many people will turn to him for his help with fear and death, just as they did for his help with anger.

This book was recommended by a teacher who responded to my interest in gaining more acceptance of death. This book was reassuring that death is not the end but a continuation much like birth. For us to be fully present and be at peace with ourselves life is more dooable. There is no need to worry...
I use the stories in this book for my own classes. Of all the books on my bookshelf about Buddhism and emptiness, this is the one I turn to when I need to come back home. Simply told, clearly described, and gently narrated, the charming stories that enhance the main body of the book convey the be...
If youâ??re familiar with Thich Nhat Hanhâ??s work, there isnâ??t much in here that will be new to you. A quick summary: Hanh explains that our ideas of birth and death, being and non-being are just that, ideas. Constructs. For example, before each of us was â??born,â? we existed in our ancestors, and whe...
I lost my Mom just over 2 years ago, and have been thinking about death quite often ever since. I think that's a normal reaction to the loss of a loved one, especially someone as close to me as she was, but the thoughts of death were beginning to turn into an unhealthily obsession. Dark, frighten...
