Description

Buddhism teaches that the present moment contains the seeds of all things, including liberation from samsara (the world of suffering). In this live audio retreat with Thich Nhat Hanh, you experience firsthand the traditional Buddhist practices designed to touch the energy of mindfulness that you carry within, and learn how to open to the joy that is always present and waiting to enter our lives.

As a humble Buddhist monk in 1966, Thich Nhat Hanh was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Martin Luther King, Jr. Since that time, he has developed a special way of teaching the dharma (essential Buddhist truths) in the West—a way that addresses the spiritual challenges unique to our day, while honoring all faiths. The seeds of internal and external peace are already inside you, he teaches. You need only learn to contact and nurture them. This is the path to transcending fear and anger; this is the path to a more peaceful world.

You will learn a treasury of detailed meditations to help you walk, breathe, communicate—even cope with traffic—more deeply and consciously. The Present Moment is a rare opportunity to learn ancient Buddhist practices directly from a living master of the tradition—practices that are life-changing today, just as they were thousands of years ago. More than seven hours of direct instruction from this living master of Buddhist meditation techniques.

I love this recording and listen to it everyday. It is a wonderful recording and I cherish it. He does the best induction to breathing that I have ever heard. He is "Present" in it.

This program has affected me more deeply than anything else I've ever read or listened to. TNH seems so simple and mellow upon first listening ("Breathing in I say Yes, Breathing out I say Thank You") but under the scabbard is a brilliant and passionate Zen scholar and poet, on fire with clarity and compassion. I heard CD2 ("cassette #2" back then) in a very arid period my life and it was like a drink of cool, sweet water. I've listened to the whole program at least a dozen times. This "simple monk" has my greatest, heartfelt appreciation. - AY
