Thich Nhat Hanh (1926- ) was born in Vietnam and trained in the Zen tradition. He has written over 100 Dharma books and has opened monasteries around the world. He started the Order of Interbeing which has a special emphasis on social engagement work (charities, environmentalism, anti-war). His tradition blends Zen with Theravada mindfulness and western psychology. He was nominated for the Noble Peace Prize by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., for his work against wars.

Dearest The Cap

I adore Thich Nhat Hanh. Living Buddha, Living Christ and No Death, No Fear.

There is no death. Thich Nhat Hanh is an eternal Buddha.

Retro, thanks so much for posting the link for that documentary about Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh. It was beautiful and extraordinary. I couldn't help but shed tears as I watched it. Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh said everything I had ever wanted to say about compassion as it relates to Buddhism. He's truly inspiring, and I should learn more about him.

I agree with what the video said about how it's unhealthy for activists to feel so much anger. In college, I had always wanted to get involved with positive causes, but I always felt so uncomfortable with the hostile people in those groups. Ven. TNH warns us all of the pitfalls of uncontrolled anger.

I hope he has a long life which is full of joy.

I got to see 'Peace is Every Step' at the Buddhist Film Festival held here in Melbourne last year. Hearing his account of the experiences he went through during the Vietnam war, and seeing his lectures to war veterans and environmental activists was very worthwhile.
