A delightful fable about truth and love from the author of The Miracle of Mindfulness
Thich Nhat Hanh, a world-renowned writer, poet, scholar and Zen Buddhist monk, lives in the monastic communities he has founded in France and America. The author of the hugely popular Anger and the classic The Miracle of Mindfulness, as well as numerous other books, he conducts public workshops throughout the world and peacemaking retreats with Vietnam veterans, Palestinians and Israelis. He was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967.
"One of our most treasured spiritual teachers tells a story that will touch your heart. So beautiful." -- Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love "Thich Nhat Hanh has given us a luminous book. The Novice is both instructive and haunting. Its heroine holds a lantern for all seekers." -- Julia Cameron, author of The Artist's Way "Thich Nhat Hanh is a holy man, for he is humble and devout. He is a scholar of immense intellectual capacity. His ideas for peace, if applied, would build a monument to ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity." -- Martin Luther King, Jr., in nominating Thich Nhat Hanh for the Nobel Peace Prize "Thich Nhat Hanh shows us the connection between personal, inner peace and peace on earth." -- His Holiness the Dalai Lama "Thich Nhat Hanh writes with the voice of the Buddha." -- Sogyal Rinpoche, author of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying
