ã Read ↠´ The Stone Boy and Other Stories by Thich Nhat Hanh Ä A beautiful collection of stories that one can revisit every now and then I have been reading Thich Nhat Hanh for quite some time now and it will be an understatement to say that reading him is deeply thought provoking And therapeutic But all the same, I am aware that knowledge and wisdom are two different things To read about a way of life and to actually live it are two different things.
I am forever breaking my head over this How does one cover this distance between knowledge to wisdom Is it even possible to cover this distance in a lifetime Every religious discourse that I have happened upon, espouses detachment of one kind or another But then, I ask, what is the point of this social world if we are supposed to shun attachments Is it even possible to shun attachments Because, if it is not, then we ll have been beating ourselves up for not being able to manage an impossibility living in this world of relationships and desires aspirations and forever seeking detachment.
Hinduism, the one reads, the one begins to think, is almost equivocal about absolute desire and absolute detachment It espouses balance But who decides what is the right balance Endless questions Endless analysing But it s good Even if it does not help me cover the distance from knowledge to wisdom, it will surely help me cover the distance from absolute ignorance to a certain awareness.
Hooray for Thich Nhat Hanh The Vietnamese Buddhist monk has a beautiful soul and a way with words He changed my life in college when I discovered his works and his philosophies to practice mindful living This collection was lovely.
Thich creates some seemingly simple, but atmospheric short stories However, all stories contain deeper and meaningful layers about Buddhism and sometimes the history of Vietnam that are not too hard to understand, but still profound and useful.
The Stone Boy is a new collection of Thich Nhat Hanh s short fiction His clear, contemplative spirit illuminates these stories, which are mostly of Vietnam and the Vietnamese people Combining traditional Vietnamese tales with accounts of the contemporary suffering of the Vietnamese people Now, at a time when America has opened up again to Vietnam, this important collection can inform and illuminate readers Seven of the stories have appeared in previous collections, The Moon Bamboo and The Pine Gate, which are both now out of print.
These stories explore Buddhist themes, while introducing the Western reader to the richness of Vietnamese culture Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh is one of the world s most popular teachers of Buddhism and meditation He is also the author of many works of poetry and fiction.

The Ancient Tree makes me cry every time I read it.
More tales of suffering than I was hoping for, but lovely, thoughtful, moving stories nonetheless.
