"Thich Nhat Hanh's poems have an almost uncanny power to disarm delusion, awaken compassion, and carry the mind into the immediate presence of meditation. Thich Nhat Hanh writes with the voice of the Buddha."
"The clear, still mind of this meditation teacher gives rise to piercing images time and time again. Nhat Hanh seems an inherently skilled poet....It is these poetic worksmore than his essays or lecturesthat show Thich Nhat Hanh clearly to be a Zen mystic."
"San Francisco Chronicle"
"When we despair for our world, this book is a wise friend to turn to."
