Learning True Love: Practicing Buddhism in a Time of War

by Sister Chan Khong
£12.99   paperback  Parallax Press (2007)

Learning True Love: Practicing Buddhism in a Time of War by Sister Chan Khong Sister Chan Khong's Learning True Love stands alongside the spiritual autobiographies of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi as a remarkable story of one woman's search for social and spiritual change. Sister Chan Khong tells the story of her odyssey from a small village in Vietnam to her role as a nun and spiritual leader in Thich Nhat Hanh's worldwide community of monastic and lay practitioners.
 
A testament to the power of tenacity and faith, Learning True Love is also an introduction to the life and mindfulness teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh and an overview of the development of the European and American peace and human rights movement.
 
The centerpiece of this fully-revised edition is a moving account of Sister Chan Khong's return to her homeland of Vietnam after 40 years of exile. Learning True Love is the remarkable and impressive story of a courageous woman who has faced life's challenges with unflinching integrity.

"With precious few Buddhist political, spiritual heroines to inspire us, Chan Khong stands among the most compassionate, persistent and brave... Her book has the pace and excitement of an adventure story and the depth of a spiritual inquiry."
