What is the right way to live? How do I balance my work and my family? Why do I worry, even
when everything is okay? How can I repair my relationship with my parents? In Answers from
the Heart, Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh offers his personal, heartfelt, and often surprising
answers to fifty of the most pressing and common questions he has ever been asked.
Each answer is a concise summary of Thich Nhat Hanh’s own insight based on his lifetime of
practice. The book is divided into sections: Daily Life, Living and Dying, Engaged Buddhism,
Mindfulness Practice, Family and Relationships, and Children’s Questions. Together,
the questions and answers provide a useful guide for dealing with concrete problems, an
accessible way in to Buddhist teachings, and a lively glimpse into the connection between
students and their teacher.
