Summary

Thich Nhat Hanh is a Vietnamese Buddhist monk whose lifelong efforts to generate peace and reconciliation moved Martin Luther King, Jr. to nominate him for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967. Thay (pronounced Tie), as his followers call him, has written numerous books, travels extensively to offer teachings on the art of mindful living, and has been instrumental in introducing Buddhist concepts to the west. One of the best known and most respected Zen masters in the world today, Thich Nhat Hanh lives in southwest France, where he teaches, writes, and gardens. One of the latest releases is Peace Is Every Breath.

This set features the rare opportunity to listen to Thich Nhat Hanh deliver the teachings that inspired the creation of his most popular books. These talks include:

  • Being Peace
  • The Heart of Understanding
  • Touching Peace
  • Looking Deeply
  • The Art of Flower Arranging
  • Truly Seeing
  • On Being Peace…

This eloquent meditation on "being peace in order to make peace" is more relevant than ever.

brilliant dharma talks

No doubt we'll all relate to them differently but they are delivered beautifully and poetically. You can sense inner stillness and peace.

Spiritual Truth

I feel compelled to write a review so there is at least another written review in contrast to the one titled "Slow and aimless," even though I am not finished. It is slow, but it's certainly not aimless. Thich Nhat Hanh is very clear about helping to awaken people to their Buddha-nature. He's also not nearly as repetitive as the other reviewer states. Sure, a little repetition is used, but it's all for the purpose of obtaining enlightenment. My suggestion would be to try and meditate as Thich Nhat Hanh recommends, with a smile, as in the first lecture.

a collection of older dharma talks from Thay

Any content from Thich is great. The quality of the recordings don't bother me because it's about the messages within, not about the recording. However it's extremely tacky that the company who produced this collection decided to insert their ads to get you to go to their site to buy their stuff. Seems to go against much of what Thay is all about and more about desperate capitalism and money. Still the messages from Thay are good, but there are better purchases of his than this to me. So, not one of his best collections in my opinion but any of his dharma talks have great info for living a better life for yourself and the world around you.

Bad quality ripoff from Thay's dharma talks

The audio is of horrible quality, there are some glitches in it. It seems like they just took Thay's dharma talks straight out of YouTube and even put their own advertisements in there and published it. Don't buy this, go to plumvillage YouTube instead and search "Thich Nhat Hanh dharma talk" instead. He is the best teacher there is.

Slow and aimless

What disappointed you about Classic Dharma Talks?

The audio was bad, the speaker kept repeating repeating repeating repeating repeating the same thing over and over. It was tedious. A tree is a tree...I heard you the first five times, move on..

What was most disappointing about Thich Nhat Hanh’s story?

The repetition of the same point.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I did not have a problem understanding the speaker but I could see how someone might struggle with that aspect.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Classic Dharma Talks?

There's too much I would have edited from this book.

Any additional comments?

Waste of a credit.
