Meditation Book Review

Silence: The Power of Quiet in a World Full of Noise by Author Thich Nhat Hanh

(How to pronounce his name:Tik · N’yat · Hawn)

Reasons to meditate are abundant and readily available. Personally, I have found meditating one of the most powerful and meaningful activities I have ever committed to in my life. No exaggeration here.

When I came across this book on audio by Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, I was very open to creating even more quiet in my daily life beyond my meditation practice.

Silence: The Power of Quiet in a World Full of Noise by Thich Nhat Hanh gives informative and compelling reasons to carve out some quiet or silent time during a day and even during a lifetime.

The audio version was very easy to listen to and understand although now that I have listened to the book three times, I can see that having a copy of the physical book would be very convenient for referring back to specific phrases or suggestions for meditations.

Thich offers meditations to try for particular life challenges. For example, he suggests that sometimes we may need to meditate on being “open like a lotus flower” and other times we may need to meditate on being “solid like a mountain”. Depending on the circumstances.

The most memorable portion of the book for me was the explanation of the Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thích Quảng Đức who lit himself on fire in 1963 to protest the persecution of Buddhists by the South Vietnamese government and the subsequent letter to Martin Luther King, Jr. I am sure you recall the images. I will let you read the book yourself to understand.

Enjoy the silence and consider reading Silence.
