Spiritual Truth

I feel compelled to write a review so there is at least another written review in contrast to the one titled "Slow and aimless," even though I am not finished. It is slow, but it's certainly not aimless. Thich Nhat Hanh is very clear about helping to awaken people to their Buddha-nature. He's also not nearly as repetitive as the other reviewer states. Sure, a little repetition is used, but it's all for the purpose of obtaining enlightenment. My suggestion would be to try and meditate as Thich Nhat Hanh recommends, with a smile, as in the first lecture.

Slow and aimless

What disappointed you about Classic Dharma Talks?

The audio was bad, the speaker kept repeating repeating repeating repeating repeating the same thing over and over. It was tedious. A tree is a tree...I heard you the first five times, move on..

What was most disappointing about Thich Nhat Hanh’s story?

The repetition of the same point.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I did not have a problem understanding the speaker but I could see how someone might struggle with that aspect.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Classic Dharma Talks?

There's too much I would have edited from this book.

Any additional comments?

Waste of a credit.
