“Learning True Love stands alongside The Autobiography of Mahatma Gandhi as the rare life story of a person who truly carried out and embodied peaceful values.” - Maxine Hong Kingston, author of The Fifth Book of Peace
“Many of my students are also my teachers, and Sister Chan Khong is one of the foremost among these. Reading her book I continue to learn a great deal from her. The love and concern that underlie her work are deep. Her life is a Dharma talk, and she has much to tell us.” - Thich Nhat Hanh, author of The Energy of Prayer.
This unique autobiography tells the gripping story of a woman who not only lived, but made history. This fully revised edition follows Sister Chan Khong's courageous journey from Vietnam to France, and then back to Vietnam after forty years in exile.
