In “True Love,” Thich Nhat Hanh imparts a Buddhist perspective on love and practical techniques for its application. He explores lovingkindness, compassion, joy, and freedom as integral aspects of love. To truly love, he emphasizes the importance of being fully present in our lives. Hanh introduces conscious breathing to synchronize the mind and body, establishing the conditions for love. He also presents a mantra practice involving four intentions in relationships. In the final section, he explains how love can heal our pain and negativity, urging us to embrace and care for our emotions through mindfulness rather than repression.
