Publisher's Summary

We can spend a lot of time looking for happiness when the world right around us is full of wonder. But our hearts and minds are so full of noise that we can't always hear the call of life and love. To hear that call and respond to it, we need silence.

In his beautiful new book, Buddhist monk and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Thich Nhat Hanh explains how mindfulness is the practice that stops the noise inside. With gentle anecdotes, simple Buddhist wisdom and practical exercises, he shows us how to live mindfully so that all the internal chatter ceases and we are left with the eloquent sound of silence.

Now, at last, we can answer the call of the beauty around us. Through silence, Thich Nhat Hanh reveals, we are free to hear, to see - and just be.

Enjoyed the wonderful concept of SILENCE

The author explained in simple way and made the way clear. The result to every individual will vary and depends on practice and bringing in daily life.

Practice and Theory of Silence

If you are a regular meditator, you can grasp the content of this book with more clarity. I have been practising Vipassana meditation for couple of years, few of my doubts got clarified thru this book.

Touches too close to the chakras

Enlightening, touched my anahatha, made me think a lot about me and myself. We have been drifting apart. Thanks

Speed was too fast

I wish this book would have been read slightly slower, at the pace Thich Nhat Hanh reads his own books himself.
