Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

SISTER CHAN KHONG was born in a village on the Mekong River Delta in 1938. As a teenager propelled by her passionate dedication to social change, she began working in the slums of Saigon distributing food, helping the sick, and teaching children. At the age of 21, she joined Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh in founding the School of Youth for Social Service, which grew to an organization of over 10,000 young people organizing medical, educational, and agricultural facilities in rural Vietnam, and rebuilding villages destroyed by the war. Sister Chan Khong became well known in the anti-war and peace community for her work promoting human rights and protesting repression and violence, often at risk of her own life. Sister Chan Khong continues to work closely with Thich Nhat Hanh in Vietnam and in Plum Village, his retreat center and community-in-exile in France. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Format: Taschenbuch
This is one of the most moving and instructive books I have ever read. It is impossible to read this book and not to emerge with a heart more capable of love. I find myself picking up this book again and again when I feel in need of encouragement.
I do not agree that this book does not reveal much of Sister Chan Khong's Buddhist views. Sister Chan Khong has a unique way to teach Buddhist understanding through sharing the experiences that form her life. Possibly we Westerners tend to forget that the study of the texts and sitting meditation is not the most essential, the deepest part of the path. For me the deepest understanding of the teachings I read always happens as I try to live my life in the best way I can. If read "deeply", Sister Chan Khong's book can be seen to include a profound interpretation of the Diamond Sutra: The depth of giving is not measured in form, in how much money one has been able to collect for the good cause, but in the compassion and understanding that one has been able to evoke in oneself and others - transcending the perception of a self. Sister Chan Khong expresses this in the most beautiful way in various parts of the book, for instance in her "rice project" in the early days, for which she collected rice for the poor from a number of wealthy people, invoking compassion in them and in that way also addressing and healing the suffering that consists in a lack of love and care for others. In the Diamond Sutra, such work - living the teaching and sharing it with others - is said to create more merit and happiness than giving "as many precious jewels as the number of grains of sand in the Ganges".

This book was so inspiring to me. It is the life story of a woman that has stood in the face of the storm and has emerged with clarity, compassion, and hope. It teaches every one of us who is seeking to build a better world how to give everything we have, and if our work is destroyed tomorrow to begin to rebuild with faith, again and again.

Wonderful! 10. Juli 2003
Von Adam Chen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I totally disagree with the "library journal" review. Not only was this book inspiring, heartwarming, and unique, it told a tale of a woman who defied so many odds by transforming her suffering into the desire to help others move forward into peace. I have read many books by Buddhist scholars before, but none as simple and biographical as this. It was heartbreaking at times; hearing about killings, learning about lost loved ones, learning true love, all of this is conveyed in such a way that you feel you're actually there.
There is no broken English in this book, I don't know what the review is talking about. There's only one typo that I found in the entire book, and it was typing error, not a grammatical one. This book should be on your priority list: if you give it a try, you'll find that you want to keep it in your collection forever. It's a priceless concentration of thoughts that move and inspire you, both to touch suffering and not to despair when faced with challenges.

A very fine autobiography 7. November 2002
Von Wyote - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is the autobiography of a Vietnamese Buddhist nun who spent her life trying to help people whose lives were devastated by the wars. Because of her close association with Thich Nhat Hanh, it is to some degree an informal history of his activities as well. One of the most interesting aspects of the book is her frustration with the American peace movement. Her life (and his) are both quite inspiring, so this is a challenging and uplifting book. I would happily recommend this book to anyone interested in Vietnamese Buddhism, the war and the peace movements, or Vietnam in general.

Inspiring, beyond words 13. September 2007
Von Jeannine Otchis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Sister Chan Kong is truly a living bodhisattva. Her selflessness, generosity, and meritous actions shine through the words of her autobiography. In adversity, she tirelessly sought to improve the conditions of others and ease their suffering. The book left me wanting to know more of her life. Each picture that I have been able to find of her is a face of serenity, peace, and calm. I have a greater understanding of the suffering of the Vietnamese people.
