The Heart of Buddha's Teaching - Thich Nhat Hanh - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Heart of Buddha's Teaching:

A deep dive into the Path of Compassion.

My favorite Thich Nhat Hanh quote from the book:

"Volition is the ground of all our actions."

Questions to ponder while reading Thich Nhat Hahn's The Heart of Buddha's Teachings:

Do you suffer?

Are you happy?

My review of the book The Heart of Buddha's Teachings:

A comprehensive look into the Buddha's teachings.

A detailed explanation of concepts.

Surprisingly readable and full of love.
