Creating True Peace tells stories of Thich Nhat Hanh and his students practicing peace during wartime. These demonstrate that violence is an outmoded response we can no longer afford. Whether dealing with extreme emotions and challenging situations or managing interpersonal and international conflicts, Thich Nhat Hanh relies on the 2,600-year-old traditional wisdom and scholarship of the Buddha, as well as other great scriptures. He teaches us to look more deeply into our thoughts and lives so that we can know what to do and what not to do to transform them into something better.

I recorded myself reading this out loud so that I could listen and practice.

Creating True Peace is both a profound work of spiritual guidance and a practical blueprint for peaceful inner change and global change. It is the Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh's answer to our deep-rooted crisis of violence and our feelings of helplessness, victimization, and fear. As a world-renowned writer, scholar, spiritual leader, and Zen Buddhist monk, Thich Nhat Hanh is one of the most visible, revered activists for peace and Engaged Buddhism -- the practice he created that combines mindful living and social action. Having lived through two wars in his native Vietnam, he works to prevent conflict of all kinds -- from the internal violence of individual thoughts to interpersonal and international aggression. Now, in this new book, perhaps his most important work to date, Thich Nhat Hanh uses a beautiful blend of visionary insight, inspiring stories of peacemaking, and a combination of meditation practices and instruction to show us how to take Right Action. A book for people of all faiths, it is a magnum opus -- a compendium of peace practices that can help anyone practice nonviolent thought and behavior, even in the midst of world upheaval. More than any of his previous books, Creating True Peace tells stories of Thich Nhat Hanh and his students practicing peace during wartime. These demonstrate that violence is an outmoded response we can no longer afford. The simple, but powerful daily actions and everyday interactions that Thich Nhat Hanh recommends can root out violence where it lives in our hearts and minds and help us discover the power to create peace at every level of life -- personal, family, neighborhood, community, state, nation, and world. Whether dealing with extreme emotions and challenging situations or managing interpersonal and international conflicts, Thich Nhat Hanh relies on the 2,600-year-old traditional wisdom and scholarship of the Buddha, as well as other great scriptures. He teaches us to look more deeply into our thoughts and lives so that we can know what to do and what not to do to transform them into something better. With a combination of courage, sweetness, and candor, he tells us that we can make a difference; we are not helpless; we can create peace here and now. Creating True Peace shows us how.

This book has become one of my favorite Thich Nhat Hanh books. The first of his books I ever purchased was Peace is Every Step. I feel that one is also great although my feelings may be slightly biased since it was the first I read from him. Some of Thich Nhat Hanh's books tend to repeat the same sayings or practices from other books. They are nice teachings to be reminded of but sometimes it can get a little monotonous. I felt that Creating True Peace shared new stories and sayings I hadn't yet read from him. My copy is now filled with underlined quotes. The book also offers some nice meditation practices for helping to create peace in yourself and I go back and use these meditations often! This book has helped me personally in my daily life.

I recommend this book to anyone seeking a gentle spiritual practice which will enable them to water the seeds of love, compassion, understanding and reconciliation in their own lives and the lives of those around them. The author's teaching is clear and direct, enabling readers to acknowledge their own pain and the pain they cause others and yet without being judgmental or promoting guilt. Although based upon the author's own background of Buddhism, I have found that the practice of mindfulness meditation can be used with benefit by a person of another religious background. Certainly the teachings are presented as tools for peaceful living, rather than an effort to proselytise. As a mother and grandmother, I thought that sometimes the author's background as a monastic created a somewhat idealised version of family dynamics, but perhaps that is only to be expected! I have owned my own copy of the book for several years, but recently purchased copies for each of my adult daughters. Surely that is recommendation enough!

This book is a great book, whether you are into the Buddhist beliefs or not. It teaches so much about relationships, understanding others and being able to calm ourselves when needed. It teaches how to deal with anger with our children, spouses, or anyone. It can help in you home as well as in a work environment. It can create peace in our lives, calmness, less stress, which I believe would help just about anyone. I would recommend you read it with an open mind and heart and you will get something out of it. I believe there is something for everyone.
