5 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to the Buddha's teaching in the Anapanasati Sutra, maintaining awareness of our breathing is a means of awakening to the true nature of all things and arriving at spiritual liberation. Breathe, You Are Alive outlines 16 exercises of conscious breathing that were taught by the Buddha, together with commentaries and further exercises for practicing them every day and in any situation. Thich Nhat Hanh's insights and explanation give the reader access to the profound nurturance available when we slow down and get in touch with our in-breath and out-breath. He walks the reader through the progression of exercises -- from awareness of the physical plane, to the mental and spiritual planes - in a clear and concise manner that is easy to implement. This 20th anniversary edition includes updated commentaries and practices on the awareness of breathing meditation, as well as the author's 'Breathing and Walking' Gatha (practice verse) set to music
Thundering silence : sutra on knowing the better way to catch a snake by Nhất Hạnh( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Thundering Silence, Thich Nhat Hanh presents the early teachings of the Buddha on how to see reality clearly without becoming caught by notions and ideologies, however noble. These teachings illustrate how playfulness, openness, and non-attachment from views are essential elements for liberating us from our mental contructions so that we can enjoy our lives more fully. Nhat Hanh demonstrates the practicla applications of these teachings in everyday life. Near the end of his life, the Buddha declared, "during forty-five years, I have not said a word" to encourage his students to avoid being caught by words or ideas." Thich Nhat Hanh calls this "the thundering silence of a Buddha."
The other shore : a new translation of the Heart sutra with commentaries by Nhất Hạnh( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new translation of the Buddha's most important, most studied teaching offers a radical new interpretation. In September, 2014 Thich Nhat Hanh completed a profound and beautiful new English translation of the Prajñaparamita Heart Sutra, one of the most important and well-known sutras in Buddhism. The Heart Sutra is recited daily in Mahayana temples and practice centers throughout the world. This new translation came about because Thich Nhat Hanh believes that the patriarch who originally compiled the Heart Sutra was not sufficiently skillful with his use of language to capture the intention of the Buddha's teachings--and has resulted in fundamental misunderstandings of the central tenets of Buddhism for almost 2,000 years. In The Other Shore: A New Translation of the Heart Sutra with Commentaries, Thich Nhat Hanh provides the new translation with commentaries based on his interpretation. Revealing the Buddha's original intention and insight makes clear what it means to transcend duality and pairs of opposites, such as birth and death, and to touch the ultimate reality and the wisdom of nondiscrimination. By helping to demystify the term "emptiness," the Heart Sutra is made more accessible and understandable. Prior to the publication of The Other Shore, Thich Nhat Hanh's translation and commentaries of the Heart Sutra, called The Heart of Understanding, sold more than 120,000 copies in various editions and is one of the most beloved commentaries of this critical teaching. This new book, The Other Shore, supersedes all prior translations"--
The sutra on the full awareness of breathing : with commentary by Thich Nhat Hanh by Nhất Hạnh( Book )

4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The diamond that cuts through illusion : commentaries on the Prajñaparamita Diamond Sutra by Nhất Hạnh( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Diamond Sutra has fascinated Buddhists for centuries because of its insights into dualism and illusion. It illuminates how our minds construct limited categories of thought. It offers us alternative ways to look at the world in its wholeness so we can encounter a deeper reality; develop reverence for the environment and more harmonious communities, families, and relationships; and act in the world skillfully and effectively. In his trademark style of making even the most esoteric teachings accessible and meaningful for our every day life, Thich Nhat Hanh writes with great humor, even about the more mundane applications of the sutra, such as the insights one may gain while peeing into the woods: 'After I studied the Diamond Sutra... I realized that peeing is also a marvelous and wondrous reality, our gift to the universe. We only have to pee mindfully, with great respect for ourselves and whatever surroundings we are in.'"--Publisher's description
