Thich Nhat Hanh on five mindfulness trainings
« on: December 24, 2014, 10:39:50 am »
Gassho!

Have Thich Nhat Hanh written a book covering the five mindfulness trainings based on the five percepts that The order of Interbeing practices? I can't find the answer through google.
I'd like to read something that might help me understand mindfulness through buddhist ethics, putting the teachings in every day practice so to say, so if you have suggestions of other good reads they are of course more than welcome.

You might like this - here is a site with some 50 selected quotes. . . they do a very good job of creating an outline of Thay's teachings. 
Ideas such as "Smile, breathe and go slowly," are very simple, but very beneficial.

And here is a lovely, old dharma talk by him - there are hundreds of them available, from various sources, but this one always stood out to me as exceptional.
