Let’s bow our heads to honor Thich Nhat Hahn (Thay) who passed away several days ago. He was a great teacher and practitioner who worked tirelessly throughout his life for world peace and inner peace through practicing mindfulness. His method imbued mindfulness with love and compassion, and the wisdom correctly realizing reality. His connection with Dr. Martin Luther King was special. MLK nominated Thay for a Nobel Peace prize. Thay nonviolently, in the spirit of Mahatma Gandhi, opposed the Vietnam war. His connection with HH Dalai Lama and the people of Tibet was also special.
