Sintesi dell'editore

One of the most powerful acts of devotion is also one of the most simple: bowing down and surrendering to the earth. This is the basis for "The Five Prostrations", a time-honored Buddhist meditation practice that joins the mind and body. On Touching the Earth, Buddhist masters Thich Nhat Hanh and Sister Chan Khong update this ancient teaching for the modern student. You learn each phase of this practice, which will help empty your body of resentment while opening it to compassion for all life.

Through the songs of Sister Chan Khong (whom Thich Nhat Hanh has called a living bodhisattva, or one dedicated to the enlightenment of all beings) you also gain an ancient Buddhist technique for communicating tenderness and healing to your body.

background noises really distracting

Would you listen to Touching the Earth again? Why?

The content here is absolutely great. The background noises which are just as loud as the
speaker are absolutely ridiculous-constant coughing sneezing, endless, really endless.. These people have been making recordings for years and should be able to filter out these distractions. It came to the point where I had to stop listening.

Love hearing Thich...the sister well

I could listen to Thich for endless hours...and i already have. In this recording I loved hearing him introduce the prostrations...when sister Chan spoke..well it almost felt like a Saturday night live sketch...this could just be me... and unfair, but I just didn't connect to her..

A book full of wisdom, joy, peace.

Thich Nhat Hanh has a unique way of transmitting information because he IS peace and joy.

In the words of Meister Eckhart, he remains identitcal to peace. He embodies joy and love. His tone and pace convey this. So all the great important points--on releasement, non atachment, impermanence--all of that is there, but listening to him becomes meditation.

This is one I will read over and over again.

Healing

This is healing on many levels. Thank you sister, for singing my body to peace. Mother earth holds me in her lap and heals me while you sing. She is you and I am to.

Thich Nhat Hanh's and Sister Chan Khong's wisdom

Lovely interweaving of seeing the Buddha as a spiritual teacher and embracing one's own childhood faith as well. Very skilful understanding too of 'acceptance', made me understand forgiveness in a new way.
