According to the Buddha, breathing is a means of awakening and maintaining full attention in order to look carefully to see the nature of all things and to arrive at spiritual liberation. 16 methods of conscious breathing were taught by the Buddha, all of which are outlined in this book by the Zen master, Thich Nhat Hanh and offered together with exercises for practising them daily. The commentary provides the reader with access to the profound spiritual nourishment available when we slow down and get in touch with our breathing along with each act of daily life. Thich Nhat Hanh is the author of "Miracle of Mindfulness".
