The Ultimate Dimension | [Thich Nhat Hanh]

The Ultimate Dimension

The teachings of Buddhism describe two realities: the "historical dimension" of time, space, and form, and the "ultimate dimension": an infinite realm beyond birth and death, the realm of complete freedom, peace, and joy, the ground of being called "nirvana". On The Ultimate Dimension, you are invited to sit beside Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh for an advanced dharma retreat that opens the doorway to this sublime experience of being.

    "Poor Listening Experience"

    The wisdom of Thich Nhat Hanh is not in question. The listening experience is, however, extremely poor. Background noise, and the sounds of coughing and chairs moving in the audience completely spoils the quality of this audio. The message of peacefulness and mindfulness is spoilt by the additional noise which makes the author's voice difficult to hear clearly.

    "Surprising"

    I have always liked Thich Nhat Hanh, but this book was a little different. I'm listening slowly and the talk moves very slowly, but that's okay for the practice he describes. The surprising thing was, he made me laugh out loud- in a good way.
    Charming, loving, and tender. It will be a while before I finish this book, but I can tell already I will listen to it more than once.

    "very good"

    His voice is a little hard to understand but I still like it. You get used to it and if you have problems sleeping it's not a bad book to put on and fall asleep too...his words are simple and to the point and soothing at the same time. Enjoy.

    "a wonderful surprise"

    This is my first listen to Thich Nhat Hanh and I was pleasantly surprised. Although I had to slow down and really be present in listening to this master, in doing so, I was transformed from the knowing to the being. It is an honor to be able to hear his teachings in his voice.

    "Simple Truth"

    TNH's message is not overly complicated, and can get a bit repetitive. I believe the reason for this is that it is his intention that we really hear what he has to say. I enjoyed this book immensly - and if I can practice only a small part of what he teaches, I can see it having a profound impact on my life and happiness. I heartily recommend this book, for both the committed searchers, and those only ready to stick a toe in the water.

    "Always a fine teacher,"

    Nhat Hanh can be listened to many times over with something fresh to contemplate nearly every time. His firm, benevolent calmness always reassures me.

    "A repeat of his other books"

    He is such a beautiful loving man, and so much understanding and love comes out of his words, yet I found it just like a repeat of his other books, there was nothing new that he had said, so I did not get anything out of the book. I was kind of disappointed in the cost vs. the fact it was repeated knowledge, and he is also hard to understand at times, I have to turn my volume up all the way just to hear him. I am sure someone else might need to hear his words so don't pass it up just because I feel this way. If you have read his other books you will understand what I am talking about.
