Publisher's Summary

The secret to happiness is to acknowledge and transform suffering, not to run away from it. In No Mud, No Lotus, Thich Nhat Hanh offers practices and inspiration transforming suffering and finding true joy.

Thich Nhat Hanh acknowledges that because suffering can feel so bad, we try to run away from it or cover it up by consuming. We find something to eat or turn on the television. But unless we’re able to face our suffering, we can’t be present and available to life, and happiness will continue to elude us.

Nhat Hanh shares how the practices of stopping, mindful breathing, and deep concentration can generate the energy of mindfulness within our daily lives. With that energy, we can embrace pain and calm it down, instantly bringing a measure of freedom and a clearer mind.

No Mud, No Lotus introduces ways to be in touch with suffering without being overwhelmed by it. "When we know how to suffer," Nhat Hanh says, "we suffer much, much less." With his signature clarity and sense of joy, Thich Nhat Hanh helps us recognize the wonders inside us and around us that we tend to take for granted and teaches us the art of happiness.

Struggling with life brought me here

2nd book by Thich Naht Hanh for me after Art of Communication. It picks you up wherever you are and delivers you to where you need to be. I appreciate the wisdom and the narration. Having listened to bad narrators, you will appreciate a good one.

Profound and simple

It took me a while to really listen and understand even though it sounds simple. I’ve been listening to it several times and falling sleep with it waking up refreshed!

Quality and speed of reading

The quality of the readers voice was pleasant to me, but there were parts that could have been read more slowly. Even for taking notes on suggested practices, a slower pace would have been helpful. Of course buying the print version or listening to Thich Nhat Hanh’s YouTube recordings is a remedy for this!

Disappointed

Disappointed by the poor audio quality and the narrator's voice. I couldn't continue with it. I really struggle to listen to most American narrators. I wish there were more British narrators of Thich Nhat Hanh's audio books.
