Cultivating the Mind of Love: The Practice of Looking Deeply in the Mahayana Buddhist Tradition

Cultivating the Mind of Love: The Practice of Looking Deeply in the Mahayana Buddhist Tradition - Thích Nhất Hạnh, Natalie Goldberg It took me a while to get through this book - this seems more designed as a help for studying particular Buddhist sutra texts, not something I'm interested in doing. The tone is always gentle with Thich Nhat Hanh, but I could barely remember what he spoke of from one reading to the next. This would be helpful if you wanted in-depth study, but not so much for someone looking for reminders and maybe a few mantras to focus on during meditation.
