Book Overview: How to Love

The most popular book in the "How To" series: advice, practices, and food for thought from a Zen Master on our most universal emotion.

The third book in the bestselling Mindfulness Essentials series, a back-to-basics collection from world-renowned Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh that introduces everyone to the essentials of mindfulness practice.

Nhat Hanh brings his signature clarity, compassion, and humor to the thorny question of how to love. He distills one of our strongest emotions down to four essentials: you can only love another when you feel true love for yourself; love is understanding; understanding brings compassion; deep listening and loving speech are key ways of showing our love.

Pocket-sized, with original two color illustrations by Jason DeAntonis, How to Love shows that when we feel closer to our loved ones, we are also more connected to the world as a whole. With sections on Love vs. Need, Being in Love, Reverence, Intimacy, Children and Family, Reconciling with Parents, and more, How to Love includes meditations you can do alone or with your partner to go deep inside and expand your own capacity to love.

Scientific studies indicate that meditation contributes tremendously to well-being, general health, and longevity. How to Love is a unique gift for those who want a comprehensive yet simple guide to understanding the many different kinds of love, along with meditative practices that can expand the understanding of and capacity for love, appropriate for those practicing in any spiritual tradition, whether seasoned practitioners or new to meditation.

"The monk who taught the world mindfulness."
-- TIME

"Thich Nhat Hanh shows us the connection between personal inner peace and peace on earth."
-- His Holiness the Dalai Lama

"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."
-- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Thich Nhat Hanh, globally recognized as a spiritual leader, Zen Master, and vocal peace activist, has dedicated his life to transforming suffering and promoting peace in individuals, communities, and the world. Born in Vietnam in 1926, he became a monk at the early age of 16, subsequently gaining recognition for his key role in initiating the "Engaged Buddhism" movement, merging traditional practices with modern societal and humanitarian concerns. Nhat Hanh's extensive body of work includes over 100 books on mindfulness, meditation, and Buddhism, with notable works such as "The Miracle of Mindfulness" and "Peace Is Every Step." His teachings emphasize the intricate interconnectedness of all life, offering transformative perspectives on dealing with anger, fostering compassion, and nurturing peaceful relationships. His compelling insights have significantly influenced the field of mindfulness in the West, earning him the title "The Father of Mindfulness." Beyond his writings, Thich Nhat Hanh founded the Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism in France, the epicenter of his humanitarian work. Known for his active opposition to the Vietnam War, he has strived for peaceful reconciliation and conflict resolution, even getting nominated by Martin Luther King Jr. for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967. Today, he remains a luminary figure, spreading insightful wisdom central to personal growth and universal peace.
