Summary:

ACADEMY AWARD WINNER BEN KINGSLEY READS NOBEL PEACE PRIZE NOMINEE THICH NHAT HANH'S INSPIRING MASTERPIECE

"When you are a truly happy Christian, you are also a Buddhist. And vice versa." -- Thich Nhat Hanh

World-renowned thinker and scholar Thich Nhat Hanh, considered by many to be a "Living Buddah," explores the spiritual crossroads where the traditions of Christianity and Buddhism meet. Living Buddha, Living Christ reawakens our understanding of both religions and the connections between them.

The bestselling author of Creating True Peace, and one of the most beloved Buddhist teachers in the West, Vietnamese monk Thich Nhat Hanh has been part of a decades-long dialogue between the two greatest living contemplative traditions. In lucid, meditative prose, he explores the crossroads of compassion and holiness at which the two traditions meet, and reawakens our understanding of both. "On the altar in my hermitage," he says, "are images of Buddha and Jesus, and I touch both of them as my spiritual ancestors."

    This audiobook, The Living Buddha, the Living Christ, is what I wished for. For me, the book is a means to enter into meditation, providing the content of meditation, the instruction about Buddhist spiritual practices, and because this is an audiobook, it provides the opportunity to pause and stay in the moment until I am ready to move on. I plan to open each morning with this exercise, this discipline.

    Even though i found this CD to be informative - I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I might. It sound more like preaching then information.

  • Jay Nunez

    The book is good but very short and superficial in its contents.
