Thich Nhat Hanh grew up in Vietnam in poorer conditions than we are used to in the UK. Then he lived through the war before being exiled from his homeland in its aftermath. But there is no trace of self-pity - merely numerous examples of how keeping a mindful perspective enabled him to transmute the hard times into an unassailable serenity when others without his knowledge of mindfulness & experience of meditation would have been devoured by self-pity & despair.
This book is truly inspirational, showing how as it does that even a hard life can be infused with joy if we merely open up our hearts to it.
