Thundering Silence:  Sutra on Knowing the Better Way to Catch a Snake

£10.00

In Thundering Silence, Thich Nhat Hanh presents the early teachings of the Buddha on how to see reality clearly without becoming caught by notions and ideologies, however noble. These teachings illustrate how playfulness, openness, and non-attachment from views are essential elements for liberating us from our mental constructions so that we can enjoy our lives more fully. Thich Nhat Hanh demonstrates the practical applications of these teachings in everyday life.  Near the end of his life, the Buddha declared, “during forty-five years, I have not said a word,” in order to encourage his students to avoid being caught by words or ideas. Thich Nhat Hanh calls this “the thundering silence of a Buddha.”
