“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”   This quote by Thich Nhat Hanh, Vietnamese-born Buddhist monk, teacher, author, and peace and social justice activist who helped originate the "Engaged Buddhism" movement, expresses the very essence of the author and his extensive writings and teachings.   His lifelong efforts to generate peace and reconciliation moved Martin Luther King, Jr. to nominate him for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967.  In Happiness, he shares with readers simple practices to bring us into the present moment and develop a sense of peace and mindful awareness in our everyday lives. Throughout this beautiful book, his own enchanting smile, warmth and insight shine through.  A great gift for anyone you love!
