About the Author

THICH NHAT HANH is one of the most revered and influential spiritual teachers in the world today. Born in Vietnam in 1926, he became a Zen Buddhist monk at the age of sixteen. Over seven decades of teaching, he has published more than 100 books, which have sold more than five million copies in the United States alone. Exiled from Vietnam in 1966 for promoting peace, his teachings on Buddhism as a path to social and political transformation are responsible for bringing mindfulness to the West. In 1982 he established the international Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism in France, now the largest Buddhist monastery in Europe. He lives in Hue in Central Vietnam.

Reviews

"We have to live in such a way that a future will be possible for our children and our grandchildren. Our own life has to be our message." - Thich Nhat Hanh in "A Love Letter To The Earth"

"Thich Nhat Hanh addresses the root cause of the environmental crisis and, in doing so, offers a roadmap to an entirely new dream of the Earth." -- Wade Davis, Explorer in Residence, National Geographic Society, author of "The Serpent and the Rainbow"

"Thich Nhat Hanh makes an eloquent, uplifting, and urgent call to recognize that our health and happiness are inextricably tied to Mother Earth and all of our kin, the other species that make up the web of life. We need this great wisdom if we are to move from our destructive path." -- David Suzuki, author of "The Sacred Balance"

"In this clear-eyed, loving paean, Thich Nhat Hanh illuminates both our connection and our responsibility to the beautiful planet we call home." -- Michael Brune, Executive Director of the Sierra Club, author of "Coming Clean"

"Understanding our unbreakable connection to the abstraction we call 'the environment' really is the first step to sensible action. In that sense, this is a very practical book!" -- Bill McKibben, author of "Eaarth" and "The End of Nature"
""Love Letter To The Earth" persuasively holds that our personal and collective happiness and well being are integrally dependent on the health of the planet, the soundness of the ecosystems that comprise our world, and the necessity of a mindfulness-based spirituality in order to limit the damage we inflict upon the world we to which we are so dependent. Articulate and thoroughly 'reader friendly', "Love Letter To The Earth" is highly recommended reading, especially for non-specialist general readers with an interest in environmental issues and in Buddhist thought.""The Midwest Book Review"
