Developed during a summer retreat at Plum Village, Thich Nhat Hanh's meditation center, these charming short verses were collected to help children and adults practice mindfulness throughout the day. The verses, or "gathas, " are designed to make everyday activities such as washing the dishes, driving the car, or turning on the television opportunities to return to a state of mindfulness. As exercises in both meditation and poetry, "gathas" are very much in keeping with the Zen tradition: the "gatha" helps readers become attuned to each action, and at its conclusion, even the most mundane activity is imbued with heightened awareness. Reciting these poetic yet practical verses helps readers slow down and savor every moment. Nhat Hanh s warm, thoughtful commentary provides insight and inspiration."
