Stories and Essential Teachings from a Monk's Life
by Thich Nhat Hanh

The definitive entry point into Thich Nhat Hanh's life and message: the global peace icon shares personal stories, told with his signature simplicity and humor, that reveal his most essential teachings.

At Home in the World brings together many of the most remarkable autobiographical stories of global peace activist and Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. (1926 - 2022)

Collected here for the first time are the pivotal moments from his childhood in rural Vietnam, his years as a teenaged novice monk, and his coming-of-age as a teacher standing for peace in a country torn apart by war. Weaving through years of exile and prolific activism, Thich Nhat Hanh reveals an astounding journey in which his true home remains in the here and now.

At Home in the World is a deeply personal collection, selected and told with care, that teaches in a tradition that goes back to the time of the Buddha.

On his eightieth birthday, when asked if he planned to retire, Thich Nhat Hanh said: “Teaching is not done by talking alone. It is done by how you live your life. My life is my teaching. My life is my message.”
