The Diamond That Cuts Through Illusions presents a dialogue between the Buddha and his disciple Subhuti which 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.

Thich Nhat Hanh's commentary of the Diamond Sutra is very lucid and for me an indispensable guide. The logic of the sutra seems strange and kind of incomprehensible at first. But the commentary make sit clear that it is all about the interdependence of all "things" and the fact that ultimately everything is made of everything else.
