So I've been taking my time with Chapter 25 of Thich Nhat Hanh's The Heart of the Buddha's Teaching, "The Twelve Links of Interdependent Co-Arising." Dense stuff. I absolutely savour this book - it's definitely one to read with great care and love. Undoubtedly it's one to repeatedly reread, as opportunity arrives. But for right now, it's slow, slow going. Lots to think about. For the most part I find Venerable Hanh's writing very accessible. Of course, some of the topics he broaches in this book are incredibly deep, serious philosophical discussions, and the writing becomes appropriately dense at these points. Very humbling.
