How to Love

by Thich Nhat Hanh


In the last few years, the practice of mindfulness has become increasingly popular. Lifestyle magazines and websites often praise its benefits. However, mindfulness isn't a simple fad. Practicing it actually has many scientifically proven benefits.

Being mindful can help you with everything from becoming happier to becoming more focused and productive. Grounding yourself in the present moment can help you become healthier too by eating better and paying attention to the types of exercise that work for you. These are just a few of the practice's many benefits.

As world-renowned Vietnamese Buddhist monk and teacher Thích Nhât Hanh saw this age-old Asian technique become increasingly popular in Western culture, he had an idea. What if we were to apply this technique to help us in one of the most important areas of our existence - our love life?

In his book How to Love: Mindful Lessons on Love, Thích Nhất Hạnh shares invaluable wisdom on the subject of love. He guides us on the path of mindfulness and explains how to improve our relationships with others - and ourselves.

Understanding someone's suffering is the best gift you can give another person. Understanding is love's other name. If you don't understand, you can't love.
